It would be freakin hilarious if the 2015 class was epic considering the heartburn most of us got mid summer when we had like two pledges.
Baugh is a TE and we do have two DL positions opening, so isn't three of the four possible?
He still had that weird shot-put action, but he would have killed in a Urban offense.
If Braxton comes back and plays the H, I think we can safely retire the "Percy role" and call it the Brax position (or something way more clever).
Agreed. Brax also didn't have this improved Defense behind him.
I love Braxton. As good as JT and now Cardale have played, I would put #5 out there any day of the week. With the exception of Barry S, I haven't seen anyone who can flat out embarrass a defender like XBrax. It would break my heart a little if he left and played for another CFB team. Even then, I would still root for him every step of the way.
The text to my friends after the 21-6 score: "here comes the response". Never had a doubt that these boys were gonna bring it.
Wasn't he playing for Green Bay? What an athlete; never seemed to produce huge numbers though - except for those wheel routes he would break.
I'm not sure if this point has been made, but using the uptempo offense greatly helps in the 2 minute drill as well. I love Tress, but the 2 minute drills under his tenure were lacking. We had some nice comebacks, but I remember some epic fails late in some big games too. USC with TP comes to mind, specifically.
We may not even have to spend our valuable practice time with a 2 minute drill anymore considering we have all the uptempo stuff already in place. With an organization that is handcuffed by the NCAA on practice time, I imagine that's an advantage versus other teams. Food for thought.
I'm hearing Duke.
Maybe to make room for their giant recruiting class
Evan would wipe the floor with Booger.
Very cool that these gifs made Spencer look like a blur. I imagine the Frosh LB sub and DePriest only saw a blur on the field as well.
Debut (just in case you were really trying to decode). Wonder how she would spell epitome.
Incredible post. I'm still waiting for the sequel.
I would think he would stay another year to be featured, but I've seen some things here and there about his stock being pretty high (2nd rounder). I would selfishly like for him to stay because I would rather only have to replace one extremely solid middle presence as opposed to both he and MB.
- Nice call. That's the name I forgot. Do you know if he had the fastest 100 on the team (from HS track meets)?
Impressive. Who is our deep threat next year? Seems to me that's our only position of need to replace other than DT - if Adolphus chooses to enter the draft.
Well said, Kindell. Agreed on LeBron being in and out. What the hell is up with that?
Agreed Delly isn't shooting the rock as good as last year, but I'm holding out that he will find his 3 range again ala Dion has been now.
I will say Kyrie has gotten a lot better on D this year. TT doesn't even start when Andy is healthy, maybe the D will change from here on out. Tonight was a bit of an outlier seeing the Pistons hit their franchise record in 3s.
I am a big Karl fan, but LeBron isn't really letting Blatt coach. LeBron improvs many offensive possessions and in a recent game didn't even listen to DB on a timeout call - opting to bull rush the basket instead. Not sure a coach the likes of Karl will be a willing participant in a player-centric team where a player has omnipresent veto power.
I think Lebron has another level he will kick in during tight series and they will get to the Finals. I do agree that they are missing an ahletic big guy, but I don't know if they will be able to fit an "elite" one on this roster. They would probably be able to get a defense-first type guy though. I go to a bunch of Hornets games, and Bismack Biyombo comes to mind. He is a physical presence on D and does pretty darn well in blocks per minute. I haven't run the numbers, but I'm sure he would be up there with the rest of the league considering he was at 1.8pg the last few seasons with only ~20mpg. Love is so bad at getting his feet moving on D, someone needs to make up for his shortcomings and Andy, for as much as I like him as a person and a Cav, isn't that guy.
I'm hoping the Browns get Spence in the 2nd or 3rd.
I understand we focus on Spence because he is first round talent, but we also lost Jamal Marcus - who played pretty damn good in the bowl game last year. Not to mention we had a new, albeit exceptionally capable, DL coach.
Why hasn't Lenihan received an offer? I would have liked to see a little quicker hips and leg drive on the shanked punt out of bounds, but other than that, he looks ready for the next
