Charles or anyone. Do you see OJ playing the TE position or WR? Or maybe a little of both?
I've got sort of an organizational question. Does a high school players grades/off field problems affect his star rating, or is it based solely off athletic ability? Does a kids likley hood to get into school hurt his ranking?
Personally, I think the pressure is immense. I mean really, Iowa State last year?
There was a stat earlier this season that the longest Alabama had ever been No. 1 was something like 7-8 weeks. That's pretty telling, and it tells me that this isn't anything new.

I see O.J. playing TE, but he should also get split out some as well. He is a special talent and the staff will have to find ways to get him the ball until he comes along as a blocker. The real question is how he will hold up in the run game. That will determine his role.

Some of it's the system with guards as they really haven't opened things up to a large degree, some is the relative down year in-state talent-wise as well. I'm a little surprised he hasn't targeted the state of Florida more given his connections coming in, though.

Depends on the issue. If the off the field stuff is to the point it is preventing a kid from playing (Liner earlier in the season, D. Johnson) then certainly. Since grades are an issue that usually resolves itself late, then usually that isn't so much of an impact on rankings.
@ Shane or Travis ...How has the development of Arie K. , Caleb Gulledge,and Alphonse Taylor come?

Agree with the others- think he's one you move around to get the best matchups, whether that's with his hand on the ground, as a h-back, or split out. What separates Howard to me is his catch radius when going vertical- he's so big and long and has the ball skills to high-point and out jump anyone.
Shane, I am hearing Scottsboro is gonna put the full court press on Coach Jacobs to get him home. You think he listens to momma?

Chris, do you think we see Blake Sims more in the final 3 games of the season or is he strictly a mop-up duty player for this season?
No idea but that is a good job with good support and usually some athletes.
