I'm more worried probably than I should be. In the end I call it 42-24. Our offense keeps rolling and our defense surrenders a couple long plays again.
What a problem to have. I think Braxton is more explosive, and has a better arm. Barrett is a more accurate in the short game and makes really good decisions. Man, it'll be hard to keep one of them off of the field.
More experience yes, but also on that play before the half, not having a safety deep wasn't the best strategic move. I am so glad to see press coverage though. I am much more satisfied with the defense this year than I was last. Grant has been the most consistent, but he is also the oldest. The others will get better with reps. Corners really need to work on turning and finding the ball.
It is absolutely possible. However, we have to win convincingly over the ranked teams in the BIG. Wisconsin, Nebraska, and MSU games will be big.
Missouri if we could still get them makes a ton of sense. I'd then go after Notre Dame one last time. Colorado would be an interesting move as well and move our footprint out west a little further and still be contiguous. Plus Colorado and Missouri are AAU members and Notre Dame has top notch academics as well.
I have felt and still feel that the end game is 5- 16 team conferences with an 8 team playoff. The winner of the 5 power 5 conference championship games would get automatic bids and the other 3 teams would be at large and they would be selected by committee and then they would all be seeded.
Do not sleep on Burrow. In '16 it'll be Barrett I believe, but Burrow would be the next in line. I still think Gibson ultimately ends up at WR. I love Burrow, great size, strength, poise, and arm strength. If he was at a bigger more well known football powerhouse he'd be a top 5 QB in the country. He'll need a year to get acclimated to the speed of the game at the collegiate level, but once he does, lookout.
I know we are supposed to be this dynamic machine with weapons all over the field, but personally I wish we would go more traditional with our offense. I want a QB that can sling it and then run if necessary. I really don't care for the H-Back position either. I would love to see us go to a pro-style offense. We can still have dynamic playmakers, but they would play WR. There is no rule that says you can't be creative out of a pro-style. I'd also like to see us make the move to a 3-4 defense. It offers so much more versatility and blitzing packages. Just my opinion.
I could definitely see this. Also a possibility is Kipper Nichols who is a SF from St. Ed's getting a look. I think though the perfect scenario is taking Ahmad and Bragg and then banking 1 for next year. Then you can take your best shot a VJ KIng and if any attrition happens via NBA or otherwise then maybe grab Spellman or Funderburke
I have the S4 and have the same problem.
Unless Notre Dame asks for an invite, the Big Ten is finished expanding. If they do ask, I could see them coming in with 1 more team (Connecticut?) and that being the end of it.
