Braxton is going to air it out this year; 3000 yards 30TDs.  I blame a lot of the lack of production last year on the receivers plus such a good running game.  This year I have a really good feeling about the receivers. I truly think they are so much better now the returning starters wouldn't make my top 3.  Plus the receivers are going to break some  little 5-10 yard routes for 50-60 yards that Bratxon gets credit for in his stats.

Stephen Collier for 2 reasons, (1) its never been one of the real highly rated players and (2) he got here in Jan so will have an advantage.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I agree with most of what he's saying.  To be the best you have to beat the best, so why not be chasing teams that win national championships instead of teams that go 7-6.  The last decade or so it's mostly been the Alabama/SEC, before that it was USC, before that maybe Miami/Florida St.

But where did he get Deep South Buckeye?  I never heard that and I read Ohio State stuff everyday; I think he just made that up.

I think the staff has done a great job recruiting JT Barrett, Stephen Collier  and Joe Burrow.  They all seem like high character guys who will be good leaders.  It will be exciting to see the compete and to see who wins that starting role.

Kirk getting to catch passes from Texas A&M's QB gives me a bad feeling.

Comment 08 Jul 2014

I was playing coach.  I moved Booker to Sam when Hubbard went to TE and because Hilliard is coming in as a Will.  I want Booker on the field asap because he's a great athlete and Sam looks like the best place for that.

Out LB depth without Jerome Baker still looks really good, but I don't get why he would go to a school that only won 4 times last year and seems to be headed down hill.

Pride can get you into a lot of trouble.  I think it's tied to low self-esteem, where you feel you need to prove yourself to your friends, a cute girl or even yourself.  I know it got me in trouble before I stopped caring what other people think of me.

They have talent on their team.  Am I the only one worried if they get the O line straightened out they can be dangerous?

The news about Grant is outstanding, I've been waiting for his breakout year for a long time now.  I bet the simplified defense is allowing him to play fast without over thinking everything.

Comment 02 Jul 2014

I waited tables for a couple years, so I know how hard it can be, but I hate that tipping has become mandatory. 

It sounds like he genuinely didn't like the service and was insulted by the waitress calling him a boy, and that's why he didn't tip, not because he was being cheap. I'm going to side with Sapp on this one.

Can't wait to see Jalin Marshall, I heard some really go things about him before he got hurt in the spring.  He's like Dontre Wilson be bigger and stronger.  

Also it will be interesting to see if Vonn Bell gets his starting spot back. He was hurt in the spring too and Cameron Burrows didn't skip a beat when he replaced him.  Does Cam hold onto it or does Vonn win it back?

It'll also be good to hear Braxton is back to his old self and not rusty after being hurt in the spring.

I go every year.  I like to walk my dog at Goodale park, so during comfest I can do it with a beer in my hand :P

I see more benefits to rotating than just fresh legs.  If a guy gets hurt or when the leave to the NFL/graduates, you already have someone to replace them with plenty of game experience.  Also, you reward and motivate the #2 guy, because he knows he'll be playing instead of just sitting behind the #1.
