    I don't buy any of that, prob an excuse, UL led the whole way IMO


    No recruit is going to change their mind at the 24th hour based off of ONE game

    Umm how about no....UL likely was never behind Ohio State in Mr. Quick's rankings. He is, as we would say, a UL legacy recruit.
     


  7. Soooooo, it appears that a bowl game does have an effect...huh

    Why would he say something like that after he committed if it weren't true?

    To all you folks thinking "one" game can never make a difference, you're wrong. That win over Florida clearly convinced him that he would be on a solid team that could showcase his talents for at least two years, and possibly contend for a national title, and he could stay at home in doing so. I indeed believe his was swaying to Ohio State near the end, and had Louisville not shown just how great they can be, he would've opted for Ohio State simply because of UFM and the OSU aura.

    To me, it was a simple case of "is my hometown team good enough to stay home for?", and Louisville's convincing win over an SEC power convinced him it was. No doubt in my mind that had Florida won and/or Bridgewater had struggled, he'd be a Buckeye.

    "I was going to be a buckeye but then my parents talked me out of it"

    Yeah, that would sound great if that's the case.
    and from reading a ton of posts on this subject, it was crystal clear that many people were going to reach this conclusion regardless.

    Agreed. He already had Louisville as the top 1/2 team, and the win pushed it over the edge, while the Buckeyes were sitting at home this bowl season - 'out of sight, out of mind.'

    That Louisville win was a huge push.

    I agree. Had it gone the opposite way, and Bridgewater struggled, Quick may not be ready to decide today. He made a solid decision, and has a great QB throwing the ball to him for the next year or two.

    With Bridgewater being a likely top 5 pick next year, it's not probable that he'll be there more than a year.

    He's got an entire season to play in between now and then. His stock could rise, but will likely fall with more emerging junior and senior QB's.
