Was the commercial intercepted somehow? I'm guessing this will have low ratings, something Eli is used to
Paul Johnson is an idiot. He had one "good" season and thinks he's all of a sudden he's hot shit... He was on the cusp of getting fired before Justin Thomas saved his ass last season.
Outside of the ibvious QB battle, I think the two most important battles this year will be at WR and at DL. When you look at it, the wide receivers we field this year are just as important in the QB battle as the QB's. Without the speed to stretch the field, more teams would likely stack the box which isn't in Cardale's favor (based on the small sample of games in which he has played). Secondly, the DL we start affects the rest of the defense. Depending on who we field at the DT and other DE position determines how often teams are able to double team Bosa or even get to the second layer and take out our stud linebackers. Secondly, if the DL battle helps determine how much time a qb has to attack our inexperienced CBs. This can be seen in Bama having great DLs for the last decade that make average corners look great
I will be your sparring partner tonight if you need one Rhonda
Yes, but some things should be left unsaid. This is a football team and if the coaches choose to let Cardale go and Braxton then they chose to. Maybe Jt didn't even want to go. She is arguing for a kid who was in her son's signing class and whose parents she socialize with, to go to the ESPY's. Understandable. But there is a time and a place for everything. Secondly, I didn't say this outburst will hurt someone's draft status. I was saying we are in a time where the actions of parents may affect how coaches and scouts view players.
Respect her opinion, but realize that you are in the spotlight now. Parents are as closely watched as the players now and can hurt a player's reputation and draft stock. So, with that said, PLEASE STOP.
Isn't that what happened last year?
I'd love to think it's all about talent but their offense wasn't talented last year when they beat us. They rely heavily on scheme, which was our downfall last year. Our defense doesn't defend the short passing game particularly well, and never has really. Apple can lock down their best receiver and I have faith in Conley, but if they continue to get 5 yards per short pass in almost every play, I don't think it matters that our defensive line has 2 stars on it. Same with their team. If they can't keep the ball out of the hands of Samuel, Marshall, Wilson, and Mike Thomas on short passes, it won't matter who they have on their defensive line
But really, I think it is going to be a lineman. If I could put my finger on it, I would say Grant Schmidt. If not Schmidt, or I would have to say Josh Norwood or Denzel Ward
Wow this could be the highest ranked class in history of recruiting. I'm hoping Urbs and company can keep the staff together so we could continue killing it on the recruiting trail
That's exactly what I had in mind when I made that post.
I'm convinced Kurt Taylor is one of those 30 year old dudes who faked his birthday to comeback and play high school football. His birth certificate must have had his birth certificate signed in the Domincan Republic
I think it also depends on who we have at QB. If we have someone who can throw the deep ball (Brax or Cardale) then it forces safeties back. If we have JT, it can spread the field out wider. There are multiple players on the team bidding to be selected in the first round. Not everyone can get the ball. Also, a huge thing is how well our defense can stop opposing teams and get the ball back to our offense. The best way to make your offense productive is to keep the ball in their hands. If we can't stop anyone or allow them more time, then that takes away touches from Zeke, Marshall, Thomas, and the rest of the crew
Hand visited here a few times. Talked about how bad it was or how much OSU was a fit for him. Was a supposed Michigan lean and took several huge visits there. There was always lots of good news when he went to visit... but then took a few visits down south and ended up committing to an Alabama school. So, if things follow that projectile, Michigan will lose this one to Auburn
Not really anything big. This seems like the DeShawn Hand situation... Don't get your hopes up Michigan.
Thank God Fickell fought for this offer. Can't imagine him playing in any uniform but the Scarlett and Gray
we traded him...
The name calling is uncalled for. Maybe he just didn't like it. Someone posted a private conversation on the internet between a mad teenager and, more than likely, grown ass man. I'm sure you are willing to post your private conversations online and let people dissect them and draw inferences about you personally.
well at the time the bucks offered he was a 4-star. He was in the fold before Lattimore and definitely before Smith. I won't make any assumptions on his personality but maybe he simply clashed with the coaches. During the recruiting process, coaches always act differently as well as players. He could feel slighted by the lack of attention, who knows. The "fuck the buckeyes" was very disrespectful to not only the coaches, but also the teammates he had, fans will get over it once the next guy comes it.
I'm going to be honest and say we don't recruit our players on pro potential but college potential. Recruiting a kid based on his potential to get to the NFL would be stupid. As a college football coach, it looks good to produce talent that goes pro and succeed but it looks even better to win big games. Urban Meyer is proof. Also, a lot of the top QB talent in the NFL weren't the highest rated qbs coming out of college. You see a lot of high 3 stars to low 4 stars in the pros at QB. Those were the guys you had to wait 3-4 years for them to produce in order to fix their mechanics and tune out some mistakes. At major programs like OSU or Bama or so on, you don't have that long to wait. You have to be ready now. Which is why we recruit instant impact Qb. If you pay attention to the past couple of classes, you start to see those instant impact kids coupled with a more long term, pro-style qb. You see that with Burrow and Gibson and even with Braxton and Cardale
Skydog has actually been mentioned twice. I made sure he was the first that I mentioned
Skydog Allman, Eddie Hazel. Or Rick James Bitch
If you're going to try to be funny at least know how to spell!!! It's SKRONG
