If Zeke knew about his likely draft status that early and was distracted by it we'd have a legitimate excuse and complaint for losing. Ask Nick Saban.
Good point but after
gambling on us giving us a shot last year and seeing what we did, I think the CFP will give us a little mor leeway than we would have gotten in previous years. Defending champs, proved we were not overrated last year etc.
hopefully this isn't even an issue, amirite?
I hadn't thought about it yet. Ever since my dumb wife went vegetarian on my passion for cooking has gone down a bit. She was my #1 taste tester.
My little girls are getting there though. They love my BBQ ribs. I know how to do those dang things. They even like my chili, though I have to make a much less-spicy version for them.
Now you got me all excited for football/autumn food!
I personally want some James Clark. Dude has burners, and in one play in one of the many camp/practice videos we've been blessed with seeing (thanks 11W), he got big YAC because he accelerated immediately after the catch.
The one silver lining to these suspensions is we get to see who out of all these athletes and speedsters we've recruited - who until now haven't gotten a real chance to play - is going to step up and become the next star. Paris may have an edge if he does in fact start, but any of those guys could make a crucial or big play.
I think the Bucks could still go into the CFP if they lose to Michigan provided it's a close loss and it's their only loss, and they still go to the B1G championship game and win big. It all depends on the rest of the field (and a lot of other things), but one close loss in an away game against a rival isn't a deal breaker, if they look great the rest of the year, IMO.
I want a shutout. I've heard through the grapevine this defense is capable of shutting out teams that are good.
Missed this feature and the Preview.
Wow. We knew this but he is God-awful at interviews and answering questions. It physically hurts to listen to.
Ooh presser now from Jimmy
Jabril is definitely an athlete. Teams need to like double up on Jake Butt (lol Butt!) on third downs. He is a monster. And the RB Smith is tough to take down, he had a lot of YAC.
edit: that comment is all positive for TTUN - lemme be clear that those are the only bright spots for them. They got some work to do. "We're back!" Lolololol
Love it. Be quiet for a bit now TTUN fans. Shush till you've actually done something.
Agreed Kyle. With our starting WR's out this is his best bet. It's true that our OL and QB are eons ahead of where they were last year, this remains his best bet. While I'm sure there will be wrinkles he will sell out on the run until we show him he can't.
One of these new guys has got to step up and make a few plays. It's the only way I see us winning.
Unless of course our D stymies the hell out of them.
This. With everyone crowded into the box and the DB's chasing WRs one on one...isn't the middle wide open?
Hi a TE or hit Brax crossing in the middle and with one or two guys to juke, Brax is gone.
But I'm a dummy and don't know X's and O's, so maybe it's not this simple.
I love all of you, everyone who commented/replied to me.
So I've had a few Chardonnays, what of it?
Kill Beamer Vol. 2
I'm a silver lining type of guy. Despite us being down four guys, I love the fact that a lot of these great athletes we've recruited- Paris Campbell, Johnny Dixon, Terry McLaurin, James Clark, etc. get a chance to make a splash. Who's the next breakout star???
Excellent point. Added excitement. The entire pregame will discuss this and we'll likely see plenty of shots of both of them taking warmup throws.
J.T. was the first QB Meyer recruited.
I am on a roller coaster ride of emotions on this one. One minute I'm confident as hell, the next minute Bud Foster is worrying me.
Let's just get here, Labor Day, so we can put a whooping down. I know someone will step up in the H-back or WR role and help out. Someone's going to have a breakout game and push us over the top.
(I'm currently on the "confident" upswing of my roller coaster ride).
Definitely aqua-lity problem.
What were the rest of Barrow's stats? Seems like the sentence wasn't finished - 3 TFL, an INT..
thanks - great update as always! I keep finding new commitments to be really really excited about!
