Except here's the thing, no one on here has said anything about Metoyer being "without a doubt " the greatest ever or made any other excessively overinflated prediction even resembling the one you made about DGB. And yet you're using Metoyer as the basis for your argument. Your logic is completely flawed but, unfortunately, the only person who doesn't get that is you.
okay, you have convinced me. DGB sucks, will never amount to anything. I can't believe OU offered and coveted this bumb so much. I can't believe us brilliant Sooner fans lusted over this guy.
I never used the words "greatest ever". I said "will prove to be the best college WR since Calvin Johnson."
You didn't state it that way. Your use of the phrase "without a doubt" was to modify the statement that DGB would be the greatest college receiver since Calvin Johnson, not to modify the strength of your opinion. In fact you really never even stated it as an opinion, but rather a statement of fact. You're trying to play damage control here but failing miserably, at least to anyone with basic critical thinking skills who has been paying attention.

I am not trying to "play" anything. I am on a message board with my fellow Sooner fans, giving my opinion about a guy the Sooners recruited and conveted. That is all. Nothing more or less. Geez, I am done with this topic. Thanks for sharing, take care, God Bless, and GO SOONERS!
Haha I can't even tell sarcasm these days. Funny though.
thanks for your input scapegoat, very valuable!
My guess, now I am holding a little doubt though, you "guys" that like to argue and knit-pick every statement to every word, probably suffer from "little man syndrome". Carry on...

There is no doubt that DGB was an important recruit for OK. Going forward, I wish him success so long as he is not competing with an OU represenative for an award or NFL draft position. However, when he signed with Missou, he became dead to me and his parents came off as complete idiots in the article about his recruitment.
Quesion for Crooner, are you one of his parents?

First you come on here and tell us "without a doubt" DGB will become the greatest wide receiver Since Megatron. Now, I've checked, not a single poster has said "without a doubt" Metoyer will be All World, yet you put try to put the rest of us in your failed analytical world by saying that we've all said that Metoyer will "without doubt" be the best.
Show me one thread in which a logical Sooner fan posted that Metoyer would be the best WR since "Megatron".
Just because many believe that Metoyer will be better than DGB doesn't mean that he'll be the next C Johnson. NO one said that...except for you.
So, do we think Metoyer will be better than DGB...Most of us say yes.
Do we think Metoyer will be the greatest college WR of all time?...No. The kicker is we don't think DGB will either.

OK Crooner, so you have "no doubt" he's going to be the best receiver to come into college football in the last ten years?
If you have no doubt, then I'm sure you're ready to put $100 of your money where your mouth is. I've got a hundred that says he finishes this season with fewer than 64 reception, 845 yards and 9 TDs. That's the first season average of Robert Woods, Ryan Broyles and Jeremy Macklin. All came along since Calvin Johnson and were pretty prolific in their career.
But if DGB is no doubt the greatest since CJ, then he should be able to beat their first year numbers output, right?
Again, with time, seasoning, will prove to be the best since Calvin Johnson.
Sooner 4Ever, nice numbers you put together, very fair. I will take you up on the bet you proposed. If I lose, I will honor the bet and make sure you get paid. Will you?
Missouri Depth Chart:
There's two things we don't joke about here in Diggstown, Mr Crooner - our wide receivers and our bettin'.
I lose, I pay.
I have no problem with Mr. Corsini escrowing our little wager.
And hey, I stacked the odds in your favor... of the three receivers I used to get the specifics of the bet, Jeremy Macklin played in the Missouri offense and put up numbers that far exceeded the averages. DGB could beat the agreed to numbers and still fall well short of Macklin's 80, 1055 and 16.

Thanks for "stacking the odds in my favor". I look forward to the season and DGB surpassing your numbers, and your $100!
Take care man.
I'm originally from St. Louis, so I read the local papers. DBG started out slowly as the playbook was complicated. That's not unusual. However, the last couple of weeks he has made great strides. In fact, at their last scrimmage he had a long TD reception along with a couple of other nice plays. It may just be hype, but he appears to be coming into his own.
Guys who turn us down to stay at home are okay by me. It shows some loyalty to something larger than yourself, and most often (compared to us) is a sacrifice of glory and hoopla.
Young men who turn us down for brighter lights and bigger cities, on the other hand, unless they want to grind themselves against the best every day in practice, get less of my sympathy if something goes wrong.
But I'm an old crank.
This guy would look super in a OU uniform. Looking forward to seeing him begin his college football season Saturday night in Columbia. I expect him to be "BIG-TIME", as well.
I can name you a few that didn't turn out to be Superstars, Williams (Penn State) Rubin Randall (LSU) Darrius White ( Texas)
