I'd say that is it.  Class of 22.  If Harris is out then maybe Weber in his place, but the others I'm fairly confident about.

Comment 11 Oct 2014

Did anyone notice on that last drive it was 3rd and 1 for Alabama and they had a false start.  The refs marched it back five yards and then started the clock again allowing another 25 seconds to wind off the game clock, which prevented ARK from getting the ball back.  I guess I was unaware of this and assumed the clock would stop on an offensive penalty.  With that rule, a team could just tell their line to continuously false start and you could run the clock out no matter what?  Clarification if any of you have it.

I am sticking with Clark on this one.  I know the idea is bring in the best at every position, but with Barrett, Collier, Burrow, Clark, and maybe Gibson, I think we will have plenty of QB's.  

Comment 06 Oct 2014

I hate to be redundant, but Burrow is the QB in this class. He is way further along in his development than Gibson.  Gibson may still be a QB, but I see a player that would need at least three years to develop.  He will in my opinion elect to go to receiver to get on the field sooner.  

Comment 06 Oct 2014

I'm glad we have a playoff now, it's long overdue, but it just didn't go far enough.  I think it should be very simple.  5 power conference champions get automatic bids.  Then the selection committee can choose 3 at large teams and seed them.  Problem solved.  

Comment 05 Oct 2014

I wouldn't be surprised to see Mike Denbrook, Notre Dame's offensive coordinator get a look at Michigan and/or Illinois.  He was born in Michigan, seems to be a good recruiter and does things the right way.  

Comment 29 Sep 2014

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.  

Comment 29 Sep 2014

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.  

Comment 29 Sep 2014

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.  

Comment 23 Sep 2014

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.  

Comment 22 Sep 2014

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.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

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.  

Comment 22 Aug 2014

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

Comment 09 Aug 2014

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.
