CC didn't learn a damn thing until someone grew a pair of nuts big enough to tell him that " you can longer be here". Buddy Ryan gave him the tough love he needed to get his act together.
Richmond, Gallimore and Cager. I would like another DT but I think we get a RB even though I don't think it is a huge need. I'll side with whatever Urban says is cool.
All jokes aside, I would guess that we are going to see a very simple approach. 2 TE single back sets and running the ball downhill. This may actually be the game where we put 8 in the box after the last 3 games we have had vs legitimate RBs. I just don't see their offense being able to do anything but run the ball and play action to Funchess, Maybe Gardner runs a couple off of a play-action roll-out that we have Funchess covered. They have no choice but to slow the game down and pray for turnovers. They will try to run the ball and control the clock. I hope the front 7 is ready to play up to their talent level. They wont sling it around and give Gardner a chance to gift wrap it by throwing 4 picks. Just my opinion.
I'm not sure if it's YSU but I do think that Fick leaves for a HC job and we get Durkin as his replacement. Please, be true. Baker was all Gator because of Durkin and now he is a Buckeye commit. Did Durkin tell Baker where he was going to coach next year once he knew for sure that the SS Muschamp was sunk? That's my paper-thin conspiracy theory.
I am a huge fan of second chances but not third chances. He knew there was a large hammer hanging over his head being suspended by a rope and he cut the rope. It doesn't matter if you agree with the B1G's letter of the law or not. I don't believe that X should be classified as PED. However, the much bigger problem here is what was going on in Mr. Spence's mind that led him to believe that it was a good idea to continue to do something that he had been previously punished for doing. Something in that young man's mind told him that the hammer wouldn't fall on his head even after he cut that rope. I don't know what that could have been but it smells a lot like a selfish, immature, sense of entitlement. I'm not a big fan of the "Addicted to X" storyline especially after the lie from the first infraction. You get me once, shame on you. You get me twice, shame on me. Standards are only words on a paper if they aren't enforced. You can't complain about the actions of other conferences' student-athletes and then try to hitch a ride back the other direction just because it directly impacts OSU.
I think that we all know that E. Smith was just trying to be encouraging to a former teammate. However, I think tht he could have chosen his uplifting words a little better. Nothing surprising about a 18-19 year old needing to learn that he is representing more than himself when he opens his mouth or posts on social media. I don't see it being a future problem.
You have obviously overlooked the fact that the SEC gets away with whatever they want and scUM got hit for practicing too long. You have no idea the difference in operating in the SEC compared to the B1G. That alone would make me stay at LSU.
I understand that it would help scUM, tell me how it improves Les's life. I understand that the recruiting is competitive but it is a lot more plentiful sitting in between Texas, Georgia and Florida than it will be trying to poach Ohio recruits at scUM.
I was going to write something long that describes why it would be a bad idea for him to do that but instead I want you to tell me the advantages of being scUM's coach as opposed to being LSU's. I'll be waiting. $ is the only possible advantage and he already has enough of that to do whatever he has dreamed to do. He isn't coming!
If I could have given you 5 UV's, I would've. Zeke picks up a blitz like he is protecting his Mama.
I know that we think that it is a big deal that Urban hasn't had a lot of 1,000 yard rushers but to be honest Urban's philosophy has been to have a lot of guys touch the ball so opposing DCs cannot mark one guy to kill the flow of the offense. The fact that we are running his offense and still getting 1,000 yard rushers while spreading the ball round says a lot about our RBs. I love EZE and no doubt that he will play on Sunday if he continues to progress from where he is now.
There is no "IF" here. Please do not continue to contemplate this move on any level.
I do not give out very many DV's but if I could give you one, I would. No question that this is one of the dumbest suggestions that I have seen posted here at 11 Warriors that did not have sarcasm font. You do realize that every time that you change scheme/coaching philosophy that it requires about a 2 year learning curve for your players, right? We have an insane amount of talent on a team in their first season under a new scheme/philosophy. Can we buy into and trust the scheme/coaching philosophy until at least half of the defensive players are upperclassmen? Slow your roll, ease off, put the pipe down or whatever it is that is completing stopping your from being a logical individual. I hate giving up rush yards as much and probably more than anyone but hiring an idiot who shares your impatience (left Texas because he was tired of being the Head coach in waiting) is not the answer.
He's the best tackler in the entire secondary. What games are you watching? He will be an All American if he stays 4 years. I love me some E. Smith also but I think it would be best for him take over at the Nickel. He has the hips and athletic ability to cover and I would love to have him at the LOS in order to blitz him like AW circa 1997. We have all of the talent we need in the secondary from the last 2 recruiting classes, believe me that the talent is there. Remember that this is the first year of the new defensive system and they are only going to get better with each practice rep and each game.
#1 is the same as it is for any defense in the country. Stop the Run. I'm befuddled by our inability to keep LBs off of blockers with the D Line we have. I don't know if it is late recognition or scheme but they get caught in the wash way too often for my liking. If we can get some help in the rotation up front, LBs read keys quicker/better and stop giving up the ball then this team is a legit title contender, no doubt.
Mizzou will lose again. They have Arky and Tennecheat left on their schedule. I'm not sold on them being beat by Tennessee but I think Arky takes them to the woodshed. The last team Mizzou played against with a dominant run game was UGA and it was ugly. I expect the same result when Mizzou faces Arky. UGA will win the East and if anyone other than Bama is the West representative, UGA wins the SEC.
Chubb is every bit as good as Gurley. He isn't as big but he runs with more patience and has a better burst. He doesn't run standing straight up either. The truth is that the Offensive line is just manhandling opposing defenses this year minus the South Carolina game. There are a lot of folks down here in UGA Land that are upset that he got hurt but they aren't worried in the least about the production from the RB position. Sony Michel isn't a scrub either. They are doing fine at the RB position with or without Gurley. Feel bad for the young man but I don't see it hurting UGA.
I'm not nearly as interested in the story of him being fired as I am intrigued about who they will hire. Muschump was a crybaby for leaving Texas to begin with.
After Kelly has resurrected Sanchez's career you would think that there would be a line of former NFL QBs forming in front of the Eagles Headquarters. Hope TP can find a way to get on the field in the NFL.
No kidding, there isn't a team ranked between Wisky and UGA that wants to play Wisky.
8 team playoff while playing at higher ranked teams house would bode well for the B1G.
Except a B1G team would have to be undefeated in order to get a home game in the playoff in the land of ESPiN. I agree that weather matters a lot but the current system doesn't rank the B1G teams in a fashion that would give them a home game.
Normally I would say that I'd rather play Nebraska because I think Gordon is a bigger Homerun threat than Abdullah but I like Nebraska's QB better and Kenny Bell than over anyone Wisky has in their WR Corps. Nebraska is looking tough right now.
Its not just JM fielding the punt inside the 10, he has to be able to "poison" in time to get everyone else out of the way also. That is a fine line and I agree it requires attention in practice.
Oh, I understand that we should have had them in "throw only" offensive mindset by being up on them by 3 or 4 TDs at half but the bottom line is that we weren't and we should have been able to do a better job containing their run game in my opinion.
1st interception could have been avoided if the WR didn't hesitate on the route. please, watch the replay.
