Why would an NFL coach want to take a pay cut and a perceived step backwards in responsibility? Add in the numerous hours kissing kids and parents' asses in the recruiting game, putting up with NCAA rules and the worry of your players having to "Play School"? Please explain how that would be attractive to a current NFL coach. Both of the Harbaughs would find a job in the NFL next year if they parted with their current teams. Les Miles isn't leaving LSU and I don't blame him. I'm thinking it will be a current head coach of a lower tier team that has proven he can win. ECU's coach would be on my list and maybe at the top.
I only want to know about OL and especially the ones who can play LT. I don't know why but it seems that it is very difficult for us to pull in top 5 OT's. We just put 4 O-Lineman into the NFL. Why would they not want to come here? It's a mystery to me although I do have some ideas.
His teammates love him and will follow him. That's the type of leadership all college football coaches are looking for. Unfortunately in this case the internal leader of the team is a self entitled, immature child. He's not the first of his kind and he wont be the last. It says more about the culture of the team and the character of the young men that follow him than it does about him as an individual.
Let's be honest, none of those teams looked as bad as we did vs Navy and then we followed it up by validating their prediction vs Va Tech. FSU was playing a rival without their starting QB. Bama played another SEC team and even though that same team took OT to beat UK, Bama still beat them by 21. 3 TDs is an a$$ whipping by anyone's standards. Auburn and Oregon under performed as far as I am concerned but they didn't lose and that's all that matters. How many games did you think that OSU looked bad in during the National Championship year? A WIN IS A WIN!
I don't really know what to think of a team that is confident about beating the most prominent college football team over the last 7-8 years when that team is fresh off of an OT victory vs a perennial bottom feeder the previous week. So are they saying that Kentucky is that good or that Bama is that bad? I will agree that Kentucky is better than years past and Bama may be a little down but I wouldn't go so far as to say that the gap between the two is anywhere near closed. Just my opinion, I really like the confidence and optimism but I don't see the translation especially since they discounted scheme as an advantage. Note to CFB coaches and fans. Nick Satan stays awake as well as keeps his assistants awake all night thinking of ways to beat your team. You better figure out a schematic advantage somewhere if you expect to win. Good Luck Gators.
Saved Auburn last night. PI call in the endzone, 2 plays later the bungled bounce off of the WR's chest lands into a defenders hands. Ill take the PI over a TD. I couldn't believe that he said that Grant was better in pass coverage than Kwon. Misses getting his hands on receivers on releases, doesn't get deep enough in the middle, and has appeared confused on where to be on multiple occasions throughout his time at MLB. If Grant wasn't a Senior Captain then Kwon would already be in his spot and Grant would be rotating at DE and playing Special Teams.
I posted before the VA Tech game that I thought they should put Jalin in the Wildcat. Think about Jalin at QB with Samuel beside him and Dontre coming out of the slot on a jet motion. Please, please, please just 2 or 3 times a game to make defenses game plan for it.
All household chores, errands and honey-dos stop at precisely 1200pm on every Saturday during CFB season. It's not up for a vote nor is it negotiable. My wife doesn't know that tOSU has a bye week and I'm sure as hell not going to tell her. See, all of you guys who think that it's awesome that your wife or girl are big football fans. Not me! Just need her close enough to hear me cursing, letting her know that I am not capable of a civil conversation at that time.
Braxton is not going anywhere. He hasn't impressed enough to be a top QB draft pick and his durability is questionable as an Athlete. He will come back, he will remain a QB and he will lead us to glory. Mark it down!
Dontre is pressing, he just needs to settle down and be more patient. He will be fine. He'll start looking past that first guy he knows he will make miss and start putting it together downfield.
Sounds like an easy way to get a young man to transfer so you can recruit 35 new players every year. i'm not against feeding the competition monster but if you aren't going to pay them then you should have to honor the scholarship until degree completion. Obviously violating school rules would be a reason for termination.
Vision and patience. It will come. He's a sophomore. You will be happy he was here when he is done and gone.
There's no question in my mind that this guy does something that Jimbo and the Tallahassee PD cant cover up before he leaves FSU. Theres no way that we go 5 years without seeing his mug-shot on a sports network near you. IDIOT!!!!!!!!
Marshall appears to have better vision and is a more powerful runner. Dontre appears to be pressing to make things happen when he has the talent to be more patient and take it to the house. They're both very good and I love the fact that we will get to see them get better in Scarlet and Gray.
and that Auburn team would've been thrashed by USC just like Oklahoma was.
Yes, which is why I knew our fans would understand what it meant. Don't forget that he was mad and spouted his mouth off because he had to "Play School". You'll never hear that come out of a player from the SEC.
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. 1 GAME. GOOD JOB. KEEP WORKING!
how are you feeling about Raekwon at MLB, now?
By far the best comment of the entire post. I got ya
If you think that other school's athletes have the same academic requirements * actually being in class and grades" as the B!G, you are stupid. The reason other top recruits do not come here is because they know they will have to "play school" as well as "play football" We act like that is not the reason, but it actually is a huge part of it. Hoe long and how many of Urbans Florida guys make it through OSU? Not many!!!!!!! Urban is home and trying to do it right and also finding out how hard it is to do it right.
Duke is a basketball team. It is only 12 guys. Thats a far cry from 85 guys.
I dont care how good JT looks this year, it is XBrax's team next year.
Yeah, except JT is not running over any Safeties and especially not any of them that are comparable to Landry. Tebow wasn't the best passer or a burner but it took more than 1 guy to take him down heads up. He was a FB wearing a QB jersey. I'll give you a draw on the skill positions but the Offensive Lines are not close to being the same level, yet.
Posted the same exact thing in the Noah forum after we found out we were losing him. Erick Smith looking like he is next to break through. I know we are deep at Safety but find this young man a spot somewhere.
Say what you want about the ECU vs Va Tech game. ECU''s game plan and WR's are abusing Va Tech's secondary.
