Comment 17 Dec 2014

We've done more of that this year.  For example, I think the first couple plays of Michigan State we came out gunning a couple short routes to Smith.  He doesn't need to, though.  You don't see DeSean Jackson converting many short routes, and he's successful in the league.  I'd say we've utilized him quite well, and in the same manner he'll be utilized in the NFL.

Yeah he doesn't have any TEs going in the first round, which is the extent of this mock draft.  Funchess is in there, but listed as WR.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

I think Devin Smith should be higher.  Judging by his mock draft, looks like McShay has Smith as the #6 WR.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

True dat, this was a baller play, but the pressure came from the linebacker on a delay.  If OSU's line struggles against Bama's behemoths on the DL, his pocket will collapse on him quicker than that.  I count almost an even 4 seconds from snap until release on that play above.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

I hope so, but it's more than just the corners that come into play.  Bama's DL is much better than Wisky's DL.  Seeing as how Cardale rarely had pressure in the Wisky game, we can't be certain how well he does with it.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

The three Smith throws were on 1st, 2nd, and 1st downs respectively.  The pass to Thomas was a 2nd down.  I'm not sure I'd call it a high chance of a score, 50/50 balls are just that, 50% chance.  And I'd rather not punt on 1st and 2nd down.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

 Tom Herman trusted Cardale to make a strike down the field on the first possession of the game, and Jones dropped it in the bucket.

To be fair, two of the three Cardale-Smith hookups were complete 50/50 balls that Smith simply won the battle for.  The third (second of the game) was a dime, though.  Cardale threw another 50/50 to Thomas later in the game that fell incomplete.  Doing that against Wisconsin is one thing, I'm hoping we don't turn the ball over on such throws against Bama.

Yeah I got ya now.  Poor choice of phrasing on my part, but besides the point anyways.  I'm too lazy to go beyond the Wikipedia result, c'mon now.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

My bad.  Professional conflict of interest.  Here, let me spell it out for you.  Kirby Smart isn't currently the head coach at another university.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

You're right, it's a lose-lose.  If the Bucks go out and win, there was no need for me to worry.  If they lose due to questionable play-calling and the inability to adjust offensively, it won't be because Herman wasn't prepared, because that's just absurd to suggest of the best damn assistant in the land!  Kirby Smart doesn't have any conflicts of interest, by the way.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Man, you're becoming less and less credible by the post.

"A conflict of interest (COI) is a situation in which a person or organization is involved in multiple interests (financial, emotional, or otherwise), one of which could possibly corrupt the motivation of the individual or organization."

Tom Herman (person) is involved in multiple interests (two jobs).  His new shiny head coaching job at Houston could corrupt his motivation for his current, but no longer necessary job at Ohio State.  Seems to fit the definition.  Keyword here is "could".  This is a subjective discussion.  Everyone knows your opinion now, Squirrel, time to take your meds.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Squirrel your analogy is obviously lacking in relevancy and clearly an asshole remark.  There are other ways to word what you said, and I even agree with some of what you are getting at, so it would have been nice to read a logical argument rather than this garbage.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

True, what the media says isn't ALWAYS true, but most of the time it is.  When the media was putting out reports of Herman to Houston without it being confirmed by either university, was that just BS because it was the media saying it?  Nope.

And I never said he was thinking about it nonstop as you suggest I said.  I said he's thinking about it, and that takes time away from thinking about Bama.  A lot of time, in my opinion.

Here's your proof.  Oh wait, since the media is saying it, it must not be true.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Totally isn't a completely opposite angle.  He is awesome.  And I do question where his head's at right now trying to play two roles.  And despite what another poster on here said about him now being able to fully focus on Bama, I find that hard to believe; he's most definitely playing both roles right now.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Not a contradiction at all.  I want the dude on the sidelines in any game as the OC for Ohio State.  He's now the head coach for Houston.  Conflict of interest?

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Such preemptive statements are needed for the many readers who don't, well, read.  Point being, Herman is the man, and I know that.  Can't help but question if his whole head will be in it, though.
