  • Is james Lauranitis overrated?

    Heres a comment made by a poster that insist he is respected around here for his opinions about college football.

    I would say he was over publicized due to his dad, but thats the media. Im talking his on the field play. I dont think his play is overrated.
    What do you think about his comments?

    3rd Laurenitius is the most overrated player in the Big-10 and probably didn't shed a single block this whole season.
    He is the most overrated player in the Big-10.... I deserved none of the award considerations he got and was the 3, 4, or possibly 5th best LB in the Big-10 this year.
    Although when i talk college football I am pretty on base and I think some people respect my opinion.
    Well lets see if they actually respect your opinion.....

      OSU has a great history of LB's and when they get this kind of recognition, weather you like it or not, its usually merited.

        Just to let you know respect and agreeing are two different things. I nulled my vote also.

            He got a lot of hype because he had a lot of big plays, mostly INTs. The chances of him making that many big plays are slim and I think he still has a lot to prove before he is to be considered a big time LB prospect in the NFL.

              You must not have watched him then

              How about the key situation sacks, big INT's and all the forced fumbles, specifically the one that basically changed the Texas game?

              He was the best LB in the big ten this year. Your not overrated if youve acomplished that.

                He is overrated, but he's still a damn good football player. I'd take him on my team any day.

                  When you name 4 better LB's, then you have an arguement.

                  Not only statistically, but the way they had an effect on their teams season.

                    Patriots-lionsfan, I know your respected, so when you say hes overrated, does that mean there are 4 better LB's in the big ten better than him like Snuff seems to think?

                    When he declares he will be a 1st rounder, 2nd at very worste, does that make him overrated?

                      you realize snuff only watches and cares about Michigan right? I can't anything you say seriously until you know the people. You are a dullard. You're thoughts are now void and everything you say is like a turd falling into my drink.

                        I don't think he was the 5th best LB in the Big Ten, but I don't think he was the best either. I think he was the second or third best last year.

                          The people that know college football are the ones that voted and they picked james, not the 3rd person etc...

                          No LB arguably had more impact for their team in the big ten than JL, sorry to homers out there like Snuff, whos opinions are to one dementional.

                            Easily Harris was the most underrated LB in the Big 10 this year and Laurinaitis was the most overrated LB. Not saying Laurinaitis wasn't any good, he was great. He was over-publicized though. ANd Im sure Laurinaitis doesn't want to be known as just "WWE Executive John Laurinaitis' son", but thats the publicity he got this season at least. Laurinaitis will more than likely be the top LB in 2007 barring an injury. He also will be probably end up being even more popular than his father.

                              His publicity is overrated, not his play on the field. media attention and football skills are 2 different comparisions.
