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!

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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

Will there be an 11W sattelite tracker on Gibson's movements?

Comment 23 Jul 2014

We've been blessed with some pretty good centers over the years.  Jeff Uhlenhake and LeCharles Bentley also come to mind.  As for overall best linemen I would have to go Pace, Stringer 1 & 2 with Lachey & Mangold 3a & 3b

Comment 21 Jul 2014

Not a fan.  College football IS fall.  Nothing like it, good football or bad football.  Not to mention completely screwing up reporting and recruiting of kids.  Just don't see any viable way it would work, let alone have people watch it.

Most all D1 schools give the kids ipads...maybe the fireworks knocked out wireless at UM

Comment 16 Jul 2014

I am of the opinion that tOSU needs to go out and destroy every opponent they face in order to shrug off the perception of mediocrity in the B1G.  We can't have close games against anyone including MSU.  THE 5 night games need to be a showcase for a high powered offense, and a stifling, opportunistic defense.  Then everything will take care of itself, and then I don't care how many SEC teams are in.  We have to play ball, show we belong and there will then be no debate.
