Ultimately, it ultimately did.
That's not an opinion, that's a fact. As much as I love Craft and feel he could be an elite defender on any level, his shot is poor by NBA standards. Delly shot 40.7% from three in a much better league where close outs are faster.
All this said, I'm a huge Craft fan and hope he gets that aspect of his game pumping so we can see him in Wine and Gold in the not too distant future.
Delly shot 40.7% from three this year. That's pretty damn good. Sure, his finishing game at the rim could improve and his 15 footers aren't great, but today's game is called "D and 3" for a reason. Feel free to not like the guy, but he can make 3s and D up pretty well. He was asked to do too much in the finals. Not his fault.
Like you, I'm a fan of the Mo signing. He can score in a number of ways - which is what this team needs from the second line up against teams like GS and SA.
Cue the GIF: why can't we have both?
I believe that Braxton is much different than Jalin and Dontre. It remains to be seen how Brax can catch routes, but I belive he is a much more talented runner than J&D. It's not a slight to them, they are both very talented, I just agree with Brax in that he is legitimately in the conversation for best athlete in CFB. I haven't seen the type s of moves he makes since growing up seeing Sanders, LT, Faulk, and Sproles.
Larry was a grand slam hire.
I hope he gets tons of touches. You think Ds will try to focus on him more or Zeke? That will probably dictate who gets the bulk of the touches.
Ah, so the hundreds of runs don't translate to the new position? I don't imagine catching shovel passes and jet sweeps is more difficult than reading defenses and launching bombs from collapsing pockets. You're acting like I'm talking about a true freshman here. Braxton has plenty of successful experience running the ball in space.
Why wouldn't he be? NFL teams don't like scoring touchdowns? Can you name a more explosive player the last few years in CFB?
Lol thread title changed
I didn't see any that discussed Braxton's impending records and how this change is going to impact them. If he were the starting QB this year, he would have easily shattered a bunch. Although his Buckeye legacy is still firmly in place, I'm curious if yall believe he will be the all time leader in anything now.
I don't think it's that wild of a thought. Urban is going to want to reward Brax for his loyalty and hard work. He will feed him. As long as Brax can catch, he will continue to do those once-a-decade type jukes that make him a threat to break every play.
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.
