Yes, Meyer rolled out the red carpet for Harris a few months ago at the Schott, when the crowd was chanting his name.  Clearly, it's one of those cases where Meyer thought he could get Harris and when he didn't commit, he needed to get a plan B (Weber).  It's strange cause the best choice for Harris was clearly OSU.  Bama is stacked at RB, plus we just knocked them off.  I think Kareem Walker saw the opening and took it.  But I'm with you, and Bill Green, this might not be over just yet.  I could still see LJ, Damien, or Weber being our 2014 back.

Keep in mind, we didn't get a commit at tailback last year.  Samuel is converted.  Ball and Dunn aren't Meyer's guys.  I think Meyer needed to cover his bases and took Weber because he needed to.  Harris was the clear #1 choice.  He's never stopped recruiting Harris and he won't because he needs depth at tailback.

I'm just saying, that Harris guy... he gone.

I wouldn't say he's gone.  Recruiting is a process, and nothing is a done deal until they sign that letter.  He's decommitted once already, he tweeted the day before his commitment that he still didn't know where he was going, and for most of the last 6 months his favorite has been OSU.

Comprehensive breakdown SC.  A refreshing break from the either black or white reviews.  I think it's also fair to add, that the Beck hire was probably more influenced by Ed Warriner than anything else.  And with Warriner moving into the drivers seat as primary play caller, I think the offense will probably be influenced more by him, than Beck.  Wondering if you have anything on Ed and his personal philosophy?

Jason, I agree with raising the sticker count, I would even argue for a higher requirements to post a thread.  Say 100 to 250 helmet stickers.  On par, you could have a "black stripe" break in period where newbies have to earn stickers, can't receive them, and are identified by a black stripe on their avatar.

And was it Spencer who had that crazy one handed catch, that they didn't even review!?!?!?  Shades of Devin Smith's one hander last year.

The Bucks got bashed early in the season for the strength of schedule.  But as it turned out, not so much....  # of Bowl teams played this season: Oregon -6, Florida St. -9, Alabama -10, Ohio State -10.  Go Bucks!!

 drug positive test and/or alcohol/substance abuse related offense (e.g., DUI, alcohol related assault, underage pos 
 session of alcohol).
 2. The student-athlete will be evaluated by the intervention coordinator and a substance abuse counselor approved by

 ject to more stringent alcohol testing as part of their management plan. Any positive test for alcohol in these 
 student athletes who are under 21 will be deemed a second positive in the program.

 2. The student-athlete will be re-evaluated by the intervention coordinator and a substance abuse counselor approved

Roby sucks.....er.....ahhhhh.....ohhh crap.  I meant.... never question the coaches, OK!!  Except after they leave.... to a division 12 school.  And then it becomes painfully obvious that our pass scheme kept us out of the national championship game.  Fook.  We'll it's not like any of last years linebackers are making NFL highlights!!  at least we got that......yeah....er.....ahhhh.....ohhh crap.

 My problem with Herman is he seems like one of those guys who can't go off script.

Exactly.  Meyer keeps saying it's one on one, however where on the field that matchup takes place is the issue.  And isn't an unbalanced defense an offensive coordinators dream?  Remember our last 3 games last year?  Teams dinked and dunked the hell out of us.  Even more disturbing is when Meyer claims the O-line isn't as bad as they seem.  Oh fuck man.  If they were out manned, you were out coached!!

Comment 08 Sep 2014

In the presser, Urban reiterates how the offense must win the one on one match ups when facing a bear style defense.  What worries me and can only lead to speculation, is he never really addresses the play calling.  Dave Biddle's question "What were you most disappointed with (offensively)?"  Urban says not making the one on one plays.  Coaches will never call other coaches out but I hope Herman got an earful from Meyer.  Sometimes you have to adapt and scrap the game plan.  Herman really showed his hubris, I hope for the last time.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Yup, same problem, but this has nothing to do with Braxton so I really don't think we should be talking about it.

"entitled", excellent description KR.  

Comment 06 Aug 2014

not really.  I'd say in the same way you have a choice to kill yourself.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I might not agree with you on this.... haven't really looked into it like yourself, but I will say you should absolutely have the choice to wear one or not.
