I would absolutely road trip if I didn't have a kid. I did learn something last time. Driving straight through to Dallas as a sole road tripper was not the way to go. 

Comment 02 Dec 2016

I had a situation a couple weeks ago where a guy pulled out in front of me on a 55mph road. Obviously, I was close to him by the time I got slowed down to avoid hitting him. He was apparently offended, and pulled over with birds and words flying out the window. I passed him and looked back only to find him catching up with me. I drove casually in an odd route and figured out he was following me. I kicked it up a notch and he kept up, so I went into full evasion mode. Not safe, and probably not smart, but I lost him. I remember his vehicle, and still make sure he's not around when I'm close to home, as this deal happened fairly close to my house.

Very good points. And to add on, never, under any circumstances, drive home. Even if you're a block away and in a hurry. 

Comment 01 Dec 2016

Yea, that's the main idea. And another piece of advice. A gun is not a threatening device. If you pull it, you must be comfortable using it against another human. You have to assume the other guy won't hesitate to use his. In other words, don't pull the gun.

Road rage tip: Don't get out unless you have a gun and are prepared to use it to defend yourself. The good old days of a road side shouting match are over. I've been involved in two incidents, in small town Ohio, in the last month. Get away if you can. If not, drive to a police station.

I think it's more than that. He does a lot of awkward dancing in the pocket. Maybe it's partially due to the terrible line play. He used to take purposeful steps in the pocket, now he just moved around. He's never in good position to throw.

JT doesn't seem as confident in the route tree/play call as he did when Herman was around. I think there's a little disconnect somewhere. He's having more trouble getting through his progressions than he did as a freshman. I think that's pretty telling. 

Comment 27 Nov 2016

He's not even close. He needed gaudy numbers in these last two games, and he didn't get them. 

Comment 26 Nov 2016

He could transfer, but would lose next season because of it. Which still might make sense for him since he'll likely be drafted. I just don't know if he'll be following his coach after his coach bailed on him. If he transfers, I'd expect a completely different destination. 

Comment 26 Nov 2016

I feel bad for the kids Herman recruited to Houston. Ed Oliver especially. He preached about building something and bolted after 2 years. I don't blame him, but it's just another display of the ugly side of college football. 

Comment 26 Nov 2016

I'm typically fine with uniform modifications, but I'm with you here. If you're wearing the more traditional threads, wear the traditional helmets. Definitely don't mismatch alternate components. 

Comment 22 Nov 2016

My biggest example of not making adjustments was the Wisconsin game. They were incredibly outschemed. I expected some wholesale changes for the second half, but they didn't make them. Luckily, the execution was better in the second half. Being more talented didn't hurt, either. 

Comment 21 Nov 2016

He's not wrong about not being able to adjust on the fly. I respect that to some degree, because I've been hoping the offense would take this approach. It seems like the defense never waivers from its game plan. To a fault at times. On the other side, the offense would rather adapt to what the defense is doing rather than out-executing them. Obviously, a little middle ground would go a long way on both sides of the ball, but I think when you're the supremely talented team, you lean towards making the other team try to stop your strengths.
