Jack and 1978 seem to be the same poster

The "facts" you are relying on are based on throws Haskins and burrow were making against true freshman DBs in a spring game.  They are meaningless in every sense of the word.  You can't extreoplate the stats and make conclusions and you absolutely cant just add up Burrow's numbers from multiple spring games and say they are therefore statistically significant.  

How would your "facts" change if Barrett's last throw wasn't picked off? He would have been 8-11 for over 100 yards and a TD.  Or how would your facts change if you took away Haskins' TD that was bobbled, or took away a long TD on a wheel route on a broken coverage?  Those 3 plays alone are inflating stats for Burrow and Haskins while deflating the performance of Barrett. 

Bam Childress, based on "facts" should have started 3 years for Ohio State, been a 2 time all American a first round draft pick and an all-decade player for the 2000s in the league, and be waiting on his bust to be put up in Canton.

I'm buying Dixon.  I know he needs to stay healthy and that's a huge question mark, but like Lattimore, the OSU training staff hopefully figured it out and he can feel better.  

To me, he was the best offensive player far and away at the Spring Game.  Shifty quick and smooth

Defense, I don't know if there will really be 1.  The front 7 is basically all back, so they have all 'broken' out.  Maybe D. Jones in the middle?  The back 4 will bust out just because they are finally playing

Anything people say to the contrary can't be taken seriously.  If they all had game experience in hostile environments then maybe it would be apples to apples.  People are saying Haskins and Burrow are better than Barrett based on SPRING GAMES.  Spring games where we played touch football for a quarter and a half, and where Burrow and Haskins took back to back snaps for the same team at one point.

UGA as stated in the article finished top 5 last year, and already have 2 top 7 overall players in the 2019 class committed, and 4 commits for 2019.  Maybe Kirby didn't love the in-state talent in 2018 or felt like he likes the 2019 class so much in state he wants to focus more on that.  I'm not saying it's smart, but Kirby already brought in a good class, and the 2019 class could be a monster with the in state talent in GA.  According to the early 247 composite, 6 5* guys in GA for 2019.

It happened at Bama, where they started a true Frosh over 2 older guys, and both the older guys transferred. If Hurts had been injured in the Playoff games they had no one left to play QB.

It's a real challenge when guys transfer between the last regular season game and bowl season (like Bama's did)

And it would put a bit of the Carman end of the world talk to bed for a bit.  Carman is an amazing player and a guy we all want in this class, but Wray is a great LT type kid in his own right

Is there a glue guy on the team who doesn't get a ton of reps?  Sometimes there is an emotional leader who isn't in the spotlight playing time wise

Yea the 5-1-5 nickel was kind of what I was envisioning, then I started thinking why not a 5-0-6 look.  Similar on concept but you could put 6 guys with natural coverage skills out there to maximize the amount of time the 5 DL guys have to create pressure
