I disagree, fellas. Sure, I'd love for the Bucks score first, but efficiently answering a score can be just as much of a momentum boost, depending on how it's done. For instance, say we each have a failed drive and then Bama hits pay dirt on an 8-10 play drive. If we follow that up with a TD strike, I think that shows that we're in for a fight.

Boren sat out a full year in 2008 as a result of his transfer, and had to pay his own tuition, but he had a redshirt to burn, so it worked out ok.

Cameron Johnston, for sure. I mean, where are you half the time? Every other Big Ten team's punter has more punts than you!

Comment 12 Dec 2014

Like a few have said, I don't think you had bad intentions when posting, but to take it a different route, my wife would SCREAM that it's Ezekiel Elliott. Her reason being that she doesn't appreciate the throwback and homage to Eddie and Joey as much as I do, and feels that the abs are better left covered while playing football.

On the plus side, the youngsters not earning a tremendous amount of meaningful minutes at their positions leads to ridiculously talented kids who are motivated to earn PT...thus the special teams freaks.

I don't think he scares them in the same manner that Devin Smith does, but they'll realize how scared they should have been when reviewing film and noticing how his downfield blocks enabled Zeke and Devin to cruise to long TDs.

Comment 12 Dec 2014

I think your post fits the "No" reasoning much better. On one side you have hope, on the other you have population shifts, year-round football, oversigning, etc.

I'd love for the Big Ten to return to prominence, but I don't believe we're going to see that again without some major additions or changes (i.e. ND, Texas, Oklahoma, etc). I think we'll have good teams, maybe even a few per year, but I doubt that we'll ever have a reign like what we've recently seen down south with Team SEC.

The last time Ohio State and Alabama played was in, like, 1995. In my calendar, that was B.G.E. (Before GoldenEye), which means it might as well have been played by neanderthals in the stone age.

This is one of those brilliant lines that immediately tell you this is a DJ write-up. Well done, sir.

I've only seen a small sample size of his QB play and he's a definite project. Lots of arm strength, decent accuracy. Personally, I think his path to being an elite WR could happen sooner than the QB position, but given a redshirt and the proper QB coaching, he could absolutely thrive in an Urban-run offense. That was my Tressel-like way of saying that I have no idea...

Comment 12 Dec 2014

Good points, but I'd counter with the thought that just because we have depth doesn't mean we need to change our methods. If the coaches feel their strengths (in coaching and game-planning) lie with the 4-3, then let's put our best guys out there are rotate in the fresh legs whenever necessary.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

To clarify on the height thing, I couldn't care less if he is actually 5'10", but there have been numerous pictures of him with guys that are "6'1"ish and he looks every bit the same height.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

You definitely hit on 2 or 3 that I went back and forth on. The one I agree most on is Webb. First of all, I don't believe the 5'10" thing, though I guess that would make us the first time to undersell a player's height. Yes, he seems to have the talent to step in at the CB role.

I originally had Holmes starting on the other side, bookending Bosa, but felt I had to get Hubbard into the starting lineup somewhere and picked the VIPER as the most logical place.

Excited to see Booker get some PT next year, as he seems to have elite closing speed and hitting power to go with it.
