Put that way you do make complete sense.  I would expect E to get the majority of touches as well.  If we need 2 yards I hope hes the one with the ball.  Like I said earlier, improved O line and recievers and we won't have to worry so much about who's carriying!  Go Bucks!

How do you figure its the opinion of the coaching staff?  Just wondering? Samuel is not coming in for mop up duty.  He is a real and viablle part of the offense and should be.  I'm not in the coaching meetings by any meetings and unless I'm wrong, niether are you.  EZE starts and thats about as much as you can draw from the opinion of the coaches.

I'm not saying that samuel is the better back than E.  What I'm saying is that I don't believe E is that much better than Samuel.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

You're fooling yourself if you think there is going to be a feature back this year.  Both backs have their strengths.  I'm mystified how you can watch these games and believe that E is so much better than Samuel.  I must be watching different games.  

On another note I'm so tired of hearing about fans wanting "a back like Hyde". We don't have one.  Rod Smith is clearly not the one and Brionte Dunn may never see the field again on whatever is left of his OSU career.  Hyde was an amazing back and next to Eddie George and Kieth Byars, he is on of my favorites.  He had a once every 10 year offensive line to run behind also.  Our current backs have a young, inexperienced line that after yesterday I still don't beliieve is set in stone as far as the starters and where they start at are.

as a whole, I am much more concerned with the recieving corp.  we have a home run threat (smith), an emerging star (Thomas)' a starter that hasn't done much and tends to disappear(Spencer), and an inconsistent guy that may lead the team in targets and drops (C. Smith).  If the recievers don't start getting it together and the line doesn't show improvement it's not gonna matter who the ballcarrier is.

Have we seen the last of Brionte Dunn?  What gives I wonder?  Even Ball got carries before him and then of course he promptly fumbles.  If we sign Harris, I surely don't see him sticking around.  I just wonder what his issues are after hearing good things about him in the spring.

Poor offensive line...no improvement in defensivebackfield...no running game...recievers that can't get open with an 8 man front...defensive line did not lose this game.  

Comment 05 Sep 2014

As someone in the sports apparel industry I like the alt looks.  I really do like the "chrome" unis but they're getting tiresome now and theyre on a losing streak.  I would love to see all gray unis with scarlet and white accents.  I think that would be hot.  Not sure which helmet but maybe a matte gray as well.  I am in the minority who thinks that we would have the coolest all black unis ever in the history of black unis, but thats just me.

My only complaint about Barret is his run reads.  Many times if he keeps the ball he picks up 4-6 yards but continually gave it up for short gains and losses.  Not comparing him to Braxton at all but in that game Braxton has 2 long touchdowns because he sees the reads.  The offensive line was just that...offensive.  They HAVE to improve or we're in trouble.  VT amd MSU are MUCH better than Navy.

Comment 25 Aug 2014

If Gibson does committ to the good guys in October, we could have an embarrasment of riches at the QB position the next few years with Barrett, Gibson, Clark AND Braxton!  Throw Collier and Burrows in there and I'd say we have a plethora of quartebacks!

Comment 24 Aug 2014

I was there that day and it gives me chills everytime I hear it!  It was below zero that day!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Dont get me wrong, I LOVE Braxton and wish things were different.  But by all accounts, the word is that JT is oight years ahead of where Braxton was as a freshman.  Honestly, Braxton is not the greatest thrower of the ball.  If JT can dustribute the ball to the overabundance of weapons he has at his disposal, he could be fantastic.  My only concernis that Braxton would be a much better option behind an inexperienced offensive line.  In Ed Warriner I trust!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Its a sign though that the Era of JT is meant to be!  We will be ok...all is well...remain calm!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

I know we don't know everything yet but lets say he's done for the season.  Upside...JT has been getting ALOT of reps in camp.  The staff has to know that at any moment Brax could go down as he's shown his whole career.  I would come out today and name JT the starter.  None of this "wait and see" or "we're hoping" etc.  Just name JT the starter for Navy and take the next two weeks and prepare the entire team for what we have to do now.  WRs have to step up, RBs have to step up, our O line has to step up and the Defense has to be improved.  Lets be honest...this is nothing new even WITH Braxton.  These were all question marks.  At least JT has had time to work on timing and he now has time to get his head right and prepare to be THE man instead of maybe the man or the man if THE man goes down.  I know Braxton is an incredible talent, but I think Barrett could be too and from all accounts is a MUCH better passer than when Brax was a freshman.  Lets face it, JT has ALOT more wepons at his disposal than Braxton did.  I don't think he's gonna have to win games by himself like Miller did.  I could be completely wrong, and I'm sick to my stomach that Braxton is hurt, but I don't think the ship has sunk or is even sinking.

Been there myself...tore the labrum as well and developed an impingement, which means a small crack where when the head of the humorus comes in contact it can easily slip out again.  Everytime it goes out, the tendons and ligaments stretch.  Medical science is much further along now but I had to have my biceps tendon cut and doubled over for strength and reattached.  Before the surgery, my shoulder could pop out doing anything...softball, sleeping (turn over on it wrong and damn!!) a slip and slide...and MOST famously among my friends...When Joey Galloway caught the tying touchdown against Wisconsin, I through my hands up and cheered and it popped out!!  Waited til the game was over then went to the hospital to get it put back in!

Ironically he was one of the last people to see Belushi alive.  I believe they were together the night before Belushi died or that night.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

Jeff Greene is HUGE compared to when I saw him last summer.  He was not built like that then.  I have worked out with him 3 or 4 times and he has DEFINITELY been Marottied!!  Erik Smith looks bigger in that pic than when I saw him at the Border Classic 2 months ago.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

Met Erick at the Border Classic.  Tall...not that big.  Great kid though.
