25. LB Luke Roberts – 3 Stars

Roberts is a 6’2″, 225 lbs ILB prospect from Lancaster, OH who runs a 4.6 in the 40 yard dash.  In a class that is loaded with talent at the LB position, Roberts is the least talented of the group.  It is possible that Meyer may not have even recruited him had he arrived at Ohio State a little earlier in the recruiting process.  Meyer honored all of the scholarships that were offered prior to coming on board, so Roberts sticks.  Even with LB being a position of need, Roberts is the least likely to impact the team as a Freshman.  He’s highly likely to redshirt in his Freshman season and then see if he can make an impact on Special Teams as a Redshirt Freshman in 2013.  If Roberts ever gets on the field as a starter, it will either be due to a rash of injuries or he will become one of the bigger steals in recruiting history for the program.

Farbeit for me to cast a stone of dispersion towards the deceased. I realize the timing of this is probably not well received. However, when you figure into a man’s life that he not only petitioned successfully to afford special treatment for his student athletes and assistant coaches despite their arrests for drugs, violence and sex crimes, I think it is fair to question the character of such a man. What was he trying to accomplish ? Win above all else ? Is that the legendary character we are remembering ? (more…)

So by now most of the free world has heard of what happened at Penn State.  As I write this the University has yet to make an official statement regarding the now public grand jury testimony nor have they answered the following questions (and yes, they do owe the public answers):
 
How long did they know about the allegations ?
According to Grand Jury Testimony the first reported sex act Sandusky had with a minor was between 1994 and 1997. The University was made aware of the allegations in 1998 when Sandusky was interviewed by officials and admitted to showering with a pre-teen. He acknowledged the inappropriateness of his actions and promised not to do it again. The authorities, being the Penn State University police, closed the case. (more…)

Defensive Ends
 
First Team: Quinton Coples, North Carolina… Coples was forced onto the scene a year ago with Robert Quinn’s suspension. Coples offers rare size and plays with solid athleticism and strength. Generally speaking 6’6 285lb. Defensive Ends are destined to end up inside at the five technique, but Coples brings experience and ability to a weak ACC schedule where his top opponent for the season will be a true sophomore (S. Henderson, Miami) who he should easily handle. 
 
First Team: Brandon Jenkins, Florida State… Jenkins is the next in line of Florida State pass rushers. Jenkins had 13.5 sacks as a Sophomore and with an easier schedule and improved play from his teammates, he should acheive those numbers again. Jenkins is a bit shorter than many NFL GM’s would say is ideal…but at 6’2 265, he does have enough size to hold up against the run in college and the pass rush arsenal to get around the corner.  (more…)

Let’s be clear, this isn’t an All-American list of who the top NFL draft picks will be… Who will set conference records and necessarily be a star on their own team…This is a list to get the word out on some of my favorite players who I have followed since their recruiting visits of their Junior season, in high school.  So without further build-up… Here we go.
 
Quarterbacks
 
First Team:  Landry Jones, Oklahoma… Everyone’s All-American. High tempo, spread offense with talented receivers, proven coaches and Big 12 Conference schedule that lacks any clear defensive challenge. The ultimate compliment a quarterback can be paid is trust from his coach and teammates. Jones has that in spades. Stepped in for an injured Sam Bradford two seasons ago and had by some standards success. He came in last season as a known starter and delivered an outstanding performance. The challenge for Jones will be to lead his team to an undefeated season and BCS title…anything less and he will have not met many expectations. (more…)

Overall, the Notre Dame schedule features just two teams ranked in both polls (Standford and Michigan State), followed by a boatload of average College teams, and some chumps.  Based on rankings, the Irish should be favored in every game but the Stanford road game to end the season. 

1. Vs. South Florida – Should be a win.  South Florida just isn’t a good team.  They were better a few years ago and while they still get some recruits, they don’t get anywhere near enough to actually fill out the roster.  Notre Dame’s talent level is off the charts vs. South Florida and the added benefit of bringing them to South Bend should get it done.  1-0.  (more…)
