When I saw how long it was I thought no way am I going to listen to the whole thing, but it was so interesting I did.
We are stacked at WR, Braxton throwing for 4000 yards this year!
We have so much young talent I'm so excited for this year! I have really high expectations this year, more so than the last 2.
If Meyer didn't think Fickell shouldn't be there, he wouldn't be there, and I trust Meyer.
Nice, looking like this could be his breakout year!
I think Dunn is going to leap frog EzE this year. I always thought he was talented and I've heard through the grape vine he's really stepped it up. I think he would have been #2 last year if he didn't red shirt.
Edit: going to delete that comment and see how it plays out.
I think our class is even better than it's rating because we got what we needed and I trust the coaches opinion of talent more than I trust recruiting sites. Some of those 4 stars are really going to play like 5 stars. Booker if you can call him under rated being in the top 100 gets little attention, I think he's going to be one of the greats when it's all said and done.
I thought you just wanted a trip to UCLA to enjoy the sunshine, had no idea that what happened to your friend caused 2nd thoughts. It sucks coaches can just leave a program, but a player has to sit a year. There really should be some penalty to coaches that do that. I know recruiting can be a cutthroat business; it's nice to hear our coaches really care.
A freshman all American is a pretty big goal, I'll be rooting for ya. I'm sure you will get a buckeye tree planted in your name at some point.
After football is all done I see a career in the media in your future.
It'll be awesome if we get both, but I'll be happy with just one.
Also, time to upgrade from a fax machines; I would think they're getting hard to find in some areas.
We don't redsirt seems to be more of a philosophy than a practice.
I think he was timed at a 4.36, but when they posted players times last year they were all really low. I think it's the way they are timing it that makes it different and an NFL combine.
I know Meyer sits down with players not living up to expectations (like he did with Rod Smith and his parents), and discusses their future with the program. But I don't think that's the same as cutting, the player has a choice to stay or leave. Many kids do leave because they don't want to stuck on the scout team, but some like Rod decided to stay.
I think it's a honest conversation not like asking a coach to retire when they're really getting fired.
If he got busted 3 times, he must have actually been drinking 3 x 100 times. I used to drink underage all the time and never got busted, all of my friends the same. I think he has a problem.
The cover 3 link is a good read. I don't think we had the players to play press coverage this past year, but with the last couple classes coming in we should even with a few misses or injuries. Can't wait to watch the D next year!
So we have 3 Co-Defensive Coordinators now. They must have done well as a position coach to get promoted up to DC, but having more than 1 guy at the top on the defensive side of the ball is what I think gave us problems last year. I like having 1 boss and 1 clear philosophy.
Also, as much as Meyer has said he wants an aggressive defense, Luke, Ash and Johnson seem to have all ran the bend but don’t break, big cushion, zones defenses.
I don't think there is a problem with bend but don't break defenses, the problem was we had a bend AND break defense.
Sadly no. Looking at the recruiting coming in over the last couple years half of the teams in the top 10 are SEC teams. They might not win the NC, but will probably have several teams in conversation, where other conferences will only have 1 or 2.
So many great players coming in 2014, plus the 2013 class, should be some great teams over the next few years.
Cook has looked pretty good. Do you feel any better about our D?
