campbell didn't predominantly play WR in high school. run TMC wasn't a highly coveted recruit, and james clark had a catastrophic injury of his own. i've also grown skeptical of smith's coaching ability, but let's see what he does with an offense that doesn't run four receivers into the same quadrant of the field constantly and with highly talented guys like mack, victor, hill, grimes, etc. if the talented WRs we now have struggle in wilson's system, we'll know for sure where the problem lies.
said this on the other thread too...martell needs to get on the phone pronto! seems like there was just an article the other day saying he was still all buckeye...
i know the rumor is beck to texas, but what's the scuttlebutt on warrinner? is he gone, or is there a chance he'd go back to coaching the OL? the development there hasn't exactly been ideal either over the past year, and it was obviously fantastic under him when he was just concentrating on OL
as a cardinals fan, the linebacking and DB corps on that 2010 team is one of the worst i've ever seen assembled. no DC could have done anything with the personnel that davis was given. i still can't believe it took them two years after that to fire rod graves as GM.
i wouldn't go about it the way hartline is, and i'd like to think i could forgive and forget, but i can understand his anger. let's make a list:
-TP upstaged hartline's long-time quarterback and friend (it obviously needed to happen, not debating that point).
-TP, along with a couple of other idiots, put the beloved (by me too) jim tressel's job in jeopardy (tress walked over the edge himself, not debating that point). it's not a secret that hartline adores his former coach.
-TP is now the star WR on the team that dumped hartline in the not-so-distant past.
not justifying it, but it's not surprising that hartline is not a fan.
i get why kids do it, especially for the sun bowl. don't fault mccaffery at all.
i also get that there's a reason you don't see this at alabama or ohio state, and that reason is the same reason that saban and meyer constantly field elite teams. culture.
i remember hearing how mammoth oregon's d-ends were two years ago. and then i remember watching them sucking wind after about half a quarter.
if there was ever a time to use tempo, this is it.
and he has clemson scoring 42 points?? ooooook
schlabach is a southern homer...hard pass
is it possible this is just a fallback if he's not reinstated? i dont know what the rules are on signing a juco NLOI if you're still enrolled at a D1...
i just thought of that too and agree wholeheartedly. fleck with talent would be terrifying.
but what has to be going through his head? this was their year to beat OSU. this is the thinnest we'll be at o-line, d-line, and receiver for the foreseeable future. their impact players were all seniors and/or guys who will be declaring. assume he loses next year at home again and goes to 0-3 vs meyer. looking at it that way, when will the UM fans grow sick of his act? if he's thinking logically, is it so insane to assume he'd at least consider it?
resurrecting this now that fisher has been fired...cbs is reporting that it could happen...
the tears would be so delicious. would we see the Hat in blue?
two choices here....saban hates kiffin or kiffin hates saban. or both.
throws up touchdown signal (houston), vonn bell steps in front and picks it off (FAU)
yeah. whether we like it or not, coaches (especially great ones) make a far bigger impression than any one player. look at the 2011 and 2012 teams - virtually identical in personnel. 6-loss difference made by an all-time elite coach and his hand-picked staff.
tressel and urban. simple.
peppers got shafted
is it possible to cheap shot someone in the shoulder?
i hope eli talks shit to him constantly
i will miss kiffin throwing up the touchdown signal right before his qb throws a pick
kesler was there when i was going to games, early 2000s. they were actually really fun to watch then, had kesler, umberger, steckel, nate guenin, all guys that spent good amounts of time in the NHL.
haha beat me to it!
