I never coached, hell I never even played the game. However, I do consider myself an expert and feel like I am qualified to make observations and criticisms of coaches and players if I see fit. I watch about 10 hours of football programming a week. I watch Jaw's NFL film study alot and I think I know exactly what a Cover 2 is. I listen to alot of sports talk radio and despite the fact that most of them are morons, I like to know some differing opinions.
Anyhoo, when I watch a prospect's film I feel like I have a good idea of how good they will be in college. I called Clowney's dominance, I knew he was a force to be reckoned with. On the flip side I know Tanner McEvoy could never play QB for Spurrier once I saw the hitch in his giddyup while throwing in high school.
I have developed alot of sources over the years. Most of them are twitter, message board or google search related and some of them have steered me wrong. But in this day and age of fast information you are either first or you are last. Sometimes the info is bad, what can I say.
I just love football. Becoming an expert was a labor of love for me, like one of those amateur paleontologists who digs up dinosaur bones on the weekend. Am i controversial with my opinions sometimes? Sure I am, you dont' get 20,0000 plus ratings on 247 by being a sunshine pumper.

I have all the same qualifications plus I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night so I feel I'm an expert as well.
I am extremely qualified at a near-amatuer level. I am very proud of my accomplishments in that regard.
I do think that Tanner McEvoy will be a good college QB, though. It just didn't work out for him here.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Just because you post a lot and really like the Gamecocks does not make you qualified whatsoever.
Don't take it personal though, I enjoy your posts.
I am football.
Not Sure with a score of 56 I would call all 23,423 + Ratings
I talked to Marcus Lattimore once in line at the Rustle House, I feel like that makes me qualified to evaluate RBs
Homo and greasy cold hush puppies are just 2 things that would disqualify you.
I can confirm i was film study
You really went out on a limb predicting Jadaveon Clowney would be dominant.
A gutsy call if there ever was one.
I know a hell of a lot too but I just don't have enough time to come on here and correct every misconception. I am thinking about writing a book when I retire.
I explained to my daughter and her friends that the guys in line at Rustle House were Shaq Wilson and Quin Smith. I think I need to be given LB recruiting responsibilities.
Mr Morris please lighten up.
^U wot m8
Had to double-check my address bar and make sure I wasn't on The Misc. Repped...err..upvoted I guess.
You obviously have an eye for talent
