  1. Ryan Harris absent? He played Wake but 300 yards and 4 TDs is still pretty impressive.
  2. lol gg to you too kendrick <3
  3. Thanks to everyone for the advice last week, changes I made looked pretty good tonight.

  7. San Jose State 6-66 USC And after yet another horrible disappointment with the loss to Notre Dame, Dream knew he had to take desperate measures, and to seek redemption he went into the underworld. "Make me a good coach," he asked of Satan. Satan replied, "I shall, but you know that I must take something in return". "Anything, dark lord" "I shall take...your brother's manhood." Satan said broodingly. "But...my lord, such a thing does not exist!" Dream exclaimed. "That is because I took it retroactively. You see, Dream, I knew long ago that you would come to me for assistance. So I took Dean's manhood in advance. This way he will never know what it is that he is missing." "Thank you dark lord," Dream said as he returned to the land of mortals. And thus began the dark ages where Dream's USC won 666 straight national titles.
  8. So obviously this is an opinion piece so I'm not going to say it's by any means wrong, but I will say I have different feelings about a few of these teams and that's at least kind of worth discussing. Panthers 2, Packers 4 only one week after the Packers beat the Panthers by 16. While both have one loss the H2H makes me think the Packers get the edge since their SOS is at least comparable imo. I think you're overrating Indianapolis from what we've seen so far. They are 0-3 versus teams that are over .500. Atlanta and Miami have both looked wholly unimpressive as of late. I think both are overrated here considering that power rankings generally have a built in recency bias. I don't really understand your ranking of the AFC North with how the teams are placed in relation to one another. The Browns and the Bengals have had extremely easy strength of schedules while the Steelers and Ravens have had really pretty difficult schedules thus far. The whole division is a clusterfuck anyways but I was surprised to see us and Pitt in a lower tier than Cincy and Cleveland, I actually thought you'd just have a tier called "AFC North" from 17-20 or so, lol. Titans are overrated here I think. They've played a lot of awful teams for those 3 wins, though I guess I can't throw too much shade since we barely beat them. Patriots just benched their QB and have 2 wins, I'm not sure they're ahead of that many teams. Again these are just my opinions, I think the rankings as a whole were pretty good, but these all stuck out to me as something I disagreed with so I figured I might as write this because, hey, what's the point of power rankings if not to disagree with them?
  9. USC. I grew up near LA and it's always been my favorite FBS college football team (obviously Davis takes precedence now but it's FCS). I grew up during the Pete Carroll era and I got into the team because of Reggie Bush and never looked back. It sometimes sucks cuz I'm pretty much the only active USC fan that I know of when there are a ton of Notre Dame fans, but sometimes it's also kinda cool, not gonna lie, it was pretty awesome to watch the Rose Bowl this past year and feel like the villain because the entire site almost was rooting for Penn State, especially when USC made the crazy ass comeback. I don't think I'd leave Fresno until I think they're in a good place, which obviously won't be for at least a few seasons. It's never been my intention to quit a team because I think it's bad, rather I'd say I enjoy challenges and challenging myself to get better at both recruiting and coaching.
  10. The entire AFC North now has 4 wins after 9 weeks.
  11. ayy you guys did it!
  12. AFCN is such a clusterfuck right now, every team within half a game of each other I think?
  13. Incorporated. Ravens fall to the Steelers as Rob Corp tries to take back the Pittsburgh starting quarterback spot by force.
  14. Except Harris could actually be a good NFL QB.
  15. “What can I say, I love being the big man on campus.”- Ryan Harris, Wednesday, Februrary 1st, 2017, as he announced his commitment to the Fresno State Bulldogs. Ryan Harris addressing the media on signing day. Harris has never been a stranger to attention. Deemed a prodigy, he was recruited to De La Salle—California's most prestigious high school for football---at the age of twelve. He received the offer after throwing for six touchdowns in a U14 football game. His father, Benjamin Harris, did not even call his wife before signing the paperwork. For him, a regional manager for bank of America, the eight thousand dollar a year tuition was practically pocket change. “I've always been heavily invested into my son's football career”, the fifty year old Benjamin starts. “I saw early on that he had a special talent, and I know from my life that if you have a talent you need to go and chase it as aggressively as you can. So I signed him up to all the best football camps, I paid his way onto travel teams and private lessons, and clearly it worked. Some other parents, they'd get jealous you know, because my son was better than theirs and because I wasn't afraid to say so. What can I say, I don't believe in coddling. I think it makes kids weak.” From the day he set foot on campus at De La Salle, Harris was a controversial figure. “Well, a lot of people don't know this, but De La Salle used to run a wishbone”, Ryan said in our interview, “but my Dad, he wasn't a fan of that at all. He threatened to pull me out of the school and go down south to St. John Bosco if the offense wasn't changed to better suit me. At first the coach wouldn't back down, but when he saw me practicing, and saw how good I was, he knew he had to do whatever it took to keep me there.” “Ryan and Benjamin were sometimes...difficult.” De La Salle coach Justin Alumbaugh admitted in an interview. “The year they came I'd only just taken over for Bob Ladouceur, and you know, he was a legend. So I wanted to keep his systems in place, and he ran a wishbone, but when we got Ryan, I eventually realized that it wouldn't make sense to keep that offense anymore. So I agreed to the switch. But I'll admit, I wasn't happy about it, and if some freshman tried that on me today, I'll tell him to [expletive] off.” But the offensive gameplan wasn't the only source of drama for the young Ryan. “Yeah, I was a bit of a party boy, even as a freshman” Ryan Harris recollected, “My dad, as long as we were winning he was happy, so I was pretty much given free reign aside from practicing and doing enough homework to keep myself academically eligible.” After a variety of different dramas involving Harris including “misguided” locker room pranks, bullying and academic scandals, coach Alumbaugh had just about had enough. “I told him, “one more slip up and you're gonna be benched for a year.” But did he listen? Of course not”. “In retrospect, yeah, I probably should have controlled him better,” Benjamin Harris told me with a chuckle, “but he was a high school boy, you can't expect them to behave, especially not when they're getting visits from college scouts every other day.” It was true that, even as a sophomore, Ryan had been getting scouted significantly. “Best mechanics I'd ever seen in a sophomore”, Tim Bucknor, a scout for UCLA, told me, “I wanted him bad. But you know, just because someone is talented doesn't mean they are someone you wanna have on your team”. Harris throws a pass to his former Wide Reciever Sam Hiller-Weeden In August, the first week after the beginning of the semester at De La Salle, the campus was rocked by scandal. That weekend, after a party gone awry, Ryan had been arrested and sent to a juvenile detention center for a night. What exactly happened never went public, but the star quarterback was released just the next day. Rumors circulated that he had been caught doing hard drugs, or maybe petty vandalism. As the rumors flew around, coach Alumbaugh knew he had to act. Alumbaugh sighs, “I went up to Harris in the locker room before one of our practices and said, “I told you, son, one more slip and it's a suspension. You're not gonna suit up this year” I'm pretty sure his Dad actually tried to get in touch with St John Bosco, but they weren't having any of it. They didn't wanna deal with Ryan at all. I sat down with his Dad, and we worked out a deal. Ryan would be suspended the entire regular season. If we'd made the playoffs, he could play then. In all honesty, that was pretty stupid of me to agree to that.” Without Harris, the Spartans weren't nearly as good as in the previous year when they'd lost the state title game. They only just managed to squeak into the playoffs, and facing pressure from the team's boosters, coach Alumbaugh bit the bullet and started Harris. Ryan played lights out the team's opening two games, but ended up losing in the state quarterfinals in Ryan's worst game at De La Salle. “I'm pretty sure Ryan was playing hungover. I wouldn't doubt it one bit” an anonymous teammate of Ryan's told the local news. That off season less teams were scouting Ryan Harris than either of the two years prior. “I realized that his actions off the field were affecting his opportunities on the field,” Benjamin Harris said, “so I shortened his leash. A lot. He didn't do much for those six or so months but practice football and go to school. I wasn't about to let my son waste his god given talent by being stupid.” Ryan Harris played every game that season for De La Salle, including the state championship, which the Spartans won. He tallied 55 touchdowns and 4600 yards in fifteen games. He was rated as the #1 overall recruit in the 2017 class by 247, rivals, and ESPN. He was even given a perfect recruiting score by all three. Ryan Harris received only one scholarship offer from an FBS school. Fresno State. “I think I did push too hard,” Ryan admitted, “once we were winning again, I was able to do whatever again, and I went back to partying all the time. A couple times I was drunk for a visit from a coach, and I'm pretty sure they noticed. Word got around that I had some baggage, and for whatever reason, I guess people don't care how well you can throw if you are too much of a “problem”. But that's fine. Fresno is perfect for me anyways.” At Fresno, a known party school, Ryan Harris is an absolute superstar. He gets invited to every party, can get with any girl, and, according to some reports, even gets some “generous” grades from his professors. He's very publicly bad mouthed opposing teams, players and coaches. But the last two seasons Harris has managed to play extremely well in spite, or perhaps because, of all of this special attention. In the past month, anonymous players on the Fresno State roster have leaked that Harris is, “A toxic presence in the locker room”, but the Fresno State coaches have assured the press that the locker room is under control. Regardless, it's just more negative attention towards Harris. And as Ryan Harris gets closer and closer to the NFL, teams are beginning to look at his behavior, and already it is raising some red flags. “He's the next Onterrio Smith,” one scout reported, without a hint of a smile, “All the talent in the world with a mind too stupid to use it.” Whether Harris will really drop on the NFL big boards due to personal controversy remains to be seen. But it's certainly something worth paying attention to as the season goes on. Perhaps Ryan can redeem himself, or perhaps, like so many talents of days gone by, he'll be lost to history as someone who just could never make it work.
