Seems people forget about Jamal Marcus too. He was a beast about to bust on the scene as well.
Sick X10 catch, but I don't think it compares to the insanity of Tyree's catch for NYG in the Super Bowl. Yeah, maybe ODB's was technically more difficult, but the SB catch was for historical legend status.
Rewatched the IU game. IU's D played up fairly close to the LOS. I think the deep ball was there, but we've opted to control chains/ stay ahead of schedule since VT where we were bombs away. Also, some of DS' targets were poor throws by JT. One of JT's INTs were overthrowing JT on an open long cross.
I'm inclined to think the way you do, Nathan. What will sell me on this topic is whether the legend Mark Price is able to get anything from MKG this year in Charlotte. MKG's stroke was just nasty. If MP can teach him how to shoot, I will start to come around if a J is able to be learned.
Would have loved to see him play bball. He definitely has elite speed. I would want to see his jumper. I'm not sure I wholly agree with you that a shot can be taught. I mean, he has been focusing on throwing the football and he still struggles with the shot-put motion.
Would have loved for that tatgate team to have had a shot. So many weapons and it was stolen from us.
Im gonna check in with Titus on Twitter and see if he is willing to weigh in on this thread. I asked a similar question to him about Braxton a little over a year ago and he offered some wisdom about how some of the pure quick/speed guys fared on the hardwood in his day.
A lot of solid names up there. I do think Boom was underrated though. Not the fastest RB, but set up blockers and tacklers like a dream. He would bait LBs to shoot specific gaps then bust it outside/inside. It was almost like he was playing Madden Rushing Attack. I really appreciated his skill at the position.
Agreed, YT. I don't think there should be a qualifier in your statement about off-field voilence for just punching a woman, however. As Goodell (I know, hardly the bastion for ethics, but he said it well, nonetheless) stated about AP, there should be full restraint in assaulting those that are easy/weaker targets. Which makes that MGOBlog idiot just as bad - punching/attacking a kid or someone of lesser stature of you is just as vile, imo. There's a reason that wrestling/boxing/mma has weight classes. Be a man! Fight someone your own size. (Or be an adult and don't fight anyone at all, which is almost always the appropriate play).
Maybe he doesn't want a pay cut. That dude gets paaaiiiddd.
2015 spring game is shaping up to be epic.
Point taken, Red. Seeing as how North Carolina seems to have taken full credit for flight from us Dayton folks, at least give us some leeway on claiming Jalin. Also, for obvious reasons, we don't really want to claim Roger Clemens anymore.
Agreed, EPH. Les is gonna use the UM opening and get PAID from LSU like Saban did with Texas/Bama- house payments from boosters and all. Leverage.
Can we put it up to an LSU-style team vote?
Love the video!
I know the prime time games are important, but I'm cool with the occasional 12EST kick. What's not to love about getting my Buckeye hit earlier in the day and still have my Saturday night to spend with the ladies?
Generally I agree with you. However, it does solve the problem of inflating all the SEC schools and creating a self-fulfilling prophecy where every loss is "quality" and drops aren't as large for the SEC teams in the polls.
How about this: grab one team from each of the power five and give the best regular season performer a bye?
Don't like that, Notre Dame? FYI: no one cares what you think. Join a conference like the rest of us.
Hmmm.. injuries are counting in the mixed-method approach? If we win out, I have to think that we deserve a partial pass for VTech then. That was just a couple weeks removed from the massive loss of our Heisman candidate, after all.
You know they will have hit absolute rock bottom when our band uses Spartans as the evil villans in the half time show instead of the Block M.
Admittedly, the last three years have made me a little impatient. I think we have seen improvement, but last night had a few more flashbacks to the break and bend defenses we saw in year one under Urbs (and no, it's not lost on me we went undefeated, I think he has done an excellent job taking control and pulling us through the tough ones with his will to win). Totally agree that time is need to bear fruit, but can I at least see some green shoots? Winter is coming!
I will say the one deep ball that Bell was defending was just a show of excellent ball skills by the WR. Von was in his face and took some good swipes - albeit fruitless ones - to continue the analogy. The other two big plays though seemed to be short circuits of who/when there is help coverage. One would think that a Cover 4 would have more dudes to chase down plays.
Just had one nice flashback though of when Roby's blazing speed would come out and he would bail us out during these types of backside coverage fails the last few years. That dude could turn and burn.
Seriously! Wtf was he thinking on that play? When he finally got outside the pocket, I took a sigh of relief that he was going to be smart enough to throw it out of play, but then he tucked it and I just pushed my hat over my eyes and took a drink. It's probably going to be a similar reaction Cardale himself makes when Herman runs it back in the QB room come film study day.
O line all the way! They gave JT tons of time and opened up massive holes for the RBs. Did think Zeke did a great job of always falling forward and outrunning the edge tacklers, as well as JT scanning and seeing the field like a pro, but that all starts with time and push up front.
It appears to me the kid who got taken down was a Buckeye too. Me defending what I believe to be a fellow Buckeye's rights should not warrant questioning of me being a fan of the team and University. I have said multiple times the kid did a dumb thing and deserves the proverbial book thrown at him. What I don't think he deserved was a neck slam by a member of the OSU coaching staff.
Well said, OSU. I, of course, am questioning the appropriateness of the action, but definitely appreciate a clear and fair breakdown of your interpretation.
I'm amazed at the size of your internet muscles. You must work out a lot with the keyboard.
Weak comment. Not only are you being childish and insulting, but you've shown you don't even understand what Americans fight and die for (which is tragic). I'll educate you: they fight for justice and the rule of law. Laws that protect us and our allies from bullies. Bullies that believe strength, physical, military, and/or monetary, gives them the right to harm others without justice.
I'm fighting for this Buckeye kid. Is it popular? Obviously not. Will I continue to mount a defense for someone who I believe was unjustly harmed? You're damned right I will.
