We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

So you don't think he's as athletic as you first thought?
Thanks for the response.

So. We have guys that have seen the majority of the reps saying Taco was very good. And we have guys who only saw a couple reps saying he was bad. Got it.
I'm pretty sure a one dimensional DE from West Virginia was drafted #17 overall by the Seahawks. While I realized they reached on him, this is a valid point in suggesting that rush DE's can be very valuable.
When I get back to work, I will try to find the clip again where he gets completely stonewalled. I think you are purposely taking the word drilled to literally. How many times do OL drill a DL in 1:1 drills with or without pads.

Lets go back about two months ago and three months ago when all Scum fans were whining about Morris not being 5*. Dont come on here calling us out.
I assure you no buttache over Taco. If he ends up legit, good for you. Obviously OSU fans don't think thats going to happen
Why not? What's your reasoning?
The kid plays for Pickerington. That is about 10 minutes from OSU. I assure you the coaches have had all the chances to see the kid that they would need. They passed. I'm going to trust their judgement.
This is the equivalent of a kid from Cass Tech that UM coaches weren't impressed enough with to offer a scholly who then went to OSU. Would you feel like you lost anything?
You buck nutts have an unusual way of showing little to no concern. It's almost a devout obsession. It's bit confusing.
What you eat, don't make me shit.
Maybe they did not pass but they were just late to join the party. I am not saying that it happened but it may have. Look at the McCray situation.
#scraps. If Corch Urbz wanted em' he'll still get em'.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
Sometimes you can miss on players in your backyard. Especially when you think you can land someone better. We Michigan fans can relate. See Jonathan Hankins.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Guys, it's really a waste of time interacting with one of the delusionals from the Cbus asylum.
Yeah we missed on the Wisky LB Borland, MSU's Worthy among many others. Like I said, we'll see in a couple years who's staff was right. The OSU fans I associate with aren't upset about Taco. We also never offered Kimbrough from Indy who desperately wanted to be a Buck, that one is more of a head scratcher to me than Taco. At this point Taco looks better in shorts and a tshirt than in pads, maybe that will change...I'm not smart enough to claim I know.
Looks like Urban is a poor judge of talent. We all know from your boards that the Bucknuts are worried.
Can't say I disagree. It's all speculation. Would you agree that Tacos measurables bode well for success in college? Well, with good coaching and his want or will to succeed.
Can't speak for BN's, I'm no longer on there. At least a few months ago when I was on there, nobody gave an ish about Taco. There was much more debate abote McCray than Taco.
What doesn't add up is: if your not upset about us getting Taco, then why are so many Bucknuts upset about his accolades and ratings?
Yessir, totally agree. He's got the talent, just hasn't translated yet. At some point it may.
They've seen him play. Pickerington is one of the premier schools in the Columbus area. He hasn't looked very good, they think he's overated.
Well then why is there such an uproar then? His grade/rating is exactly that. He isn't rated as a sure thing. Sure thing = 100 poits per 24/7.
It's just hard to wrap your head around for some, I don't care. There are many better HS football players in OH and around the country. Taco is getting a lot of juice for his potential. When you see a guy who hasn't dominated against other high schoolers, its hard to see him in the top 70 players in the country. I haven't been crying about his rating, I don't care that much about him as we passed and he's locked in with yall. He's like the guy who shoots up the draft charts after a good combine, even though on the field he was average.
Anyways, for being a reasonable UM fan, it'll be interesting to see how it turns out.
