good play-callers recognize the way those calls are sequenced together matters just as much as the calls themselves. In this manner, Wilson's status is elevated amongst many of his peers.

So much this!

I really feel this is where Ed fell down. You could see time and again he had a concept that worked, but he never played off it. There was no baiting the defense with what worked previously or even going back to the successful play. I look forward to Wilson beating up other teams instead of embarrassing us once a year.

Some names I haven't see on here yet

1. West Virginia (Border War!)
2. Pitt (Another Border War!)
3. Missouri
4. SDSU (Let's do a home and home please!)
6. Colorado
7. Arizona (Another chance to kill Richrod)
8. TCU

These are all programs that have had some successes recently and historically and I think we can reasonably win with talent alone. I realize some of them are on the calendar already. I look forward to them with eager anticipation. :^}

I agree TCM, something is happening there. I think it's the latter. There are some guys not performing or are just too hurt to continue. We saw JD on the sideline in street clothes toward the end of the season. I think that is a done deal for medical reasons. I have no proof.

There are others I expect to see a limited role going forward and may find another place to call home. I believe we will know sooner rather than later on some of these guys.

FWIW, I also see at least 1 more OL making a move to another locale.

Personally I think all 3 have been busts for one reason or another to date. That may not be popular, but it might be this group that moves on to make room for young blood.
