While he's made some great catches, he also dropped balls that hit him in the numbers and disappeared when we played good teams. From what I've seen/read, I would start Michael Thomas, Corey Smith, Jeff Greene and maybe even Johnnie Dixon over Devin Smith.
I think Reeves got more criticism than he deserved last year, he was still inexperienced and a lot of things where wrong with the pass defense. I think he has the ability and this year will be a solid DB.
Ball and Dunn both looked great! Last year we had the best backup QB in the nation, this year we'll have the best back up RB.
I want to see Eli Apple ball out, maybe get a pick 6. He was one of my favorite recruits when he signed and I was disappointed it took him so long to get his black stripe removed, but I'm very excited it seems he has turned the corner this spring.
I never thought the tweet was a big deal, I always assumed he was just joking around.
He seems to have made himself the solid #2 QB and I'm happy for him.
Funchess is going to be a nightmare to cover if Gardner can ever get him the ball.
Nice! Would like to find out why it took so long to have it removed.
I think the second level read option Meyer has been talking about could benefit the TE's a lot this year, but I also think our WR's are going to be a lot better, so overall I don't see the TE's getting more touches.
What kind of creepy weirdos hang around their friend while he's having sex with someone? Were they standing in line or keeping look out?
Some people may not have a lot of choices, but Ray Small isn't one of them. He had the talent to play in the NFL and even if didn't make a roster, having a degree from Ohio State and playing football for them, opens doors not available to other people. He could have been a hero in Ohio.
He's a big guy too, I think he can run it up the middle without much risk of injury.
At tight end, Meyer said there isn’t a huge drop off because Nick Vannett and Marcus Baugh have performed so well.
Nice to see this, I was worried about Baugh after his alcohol related incidents, I thought he may have a problem.
give up the rouse and turn NCAA Division I football into a minor league for the NFL
A minor league for the NFL would fix this whole problem. If they want to get paid and are good enough, go play football for money, if they want to go to school and play football, they can go to school. Right now many players are in school for the wrong reason because they have no other choice.
This one about A-Dog made me happy!
"Bennett said that Adolphus Washington is blowing through double teams right now. He said it takes a grittier mindset to play inside, and Washington has that now."
Also, lots of other good spring ball stuff here:
They went to UNC to play football, they ain't go to UNC to play school!
Yep, either we get him or we have time to work on getting someone else. Wouldn't that be sweet if we get the #1 dual threat QB and #1 RB!
I don't think we should assume EzE and Smith are number 1 and 2. I've been reading some really good things about Mr. Dunn.
Smith trying to be cheap is going to force Meyer to pull a Saban and pretend like he's going to Texas just to get paid what he's worth, and that's going to give me a heart attack.
Yes, he seems to have leapfrogged Trey Johnson who was Shazier's back up last year. I believe he was a QB in high school, so he took a redshirt to learn the position.
That's just during spring break, I'm sure he'll visit Ohio St. He listed Ohio St, Tenn and Miami as his top 3 and none are listed there.
We seemed to be missing on TE last year and so far this year. What are the chances of Sam Hubbard making the switch to TE? He has the size and is a good all around athlete. With a redshirt year I'm sure he would have the time to learn the position.
I'm pretty sure a caller asked Meyer that on a call in show last fall. He said something like, to put 2 more running backs in there, you'll have to take out Heureman and Wilson, and he wanted to get the ball to them more not less.
I wish we could get away from this Co-crap.
Good analysis. While the D line probably wasn't as good as they looked at times because of the competition, they were still young last year and I would fault LB with much of the running yards against us. The D-line is the one place on our defense I'm not worried about.
