No lie....on January 3rd after rewatching the Sugar Bowl for the 3rd time, I told my wife the Sugar Bowl win night ranks ahead of our wedding.  Now our wedding day ranks behind 1) Birth of our first and only child (so far) 2) NC in Dallas 3) NC in Tempe 4) Sugar Bowl I am bad person?

Cardale lost his virginity before his father did

One thing I find interesting is that following Buckeye turnovers against MSU and MN, they have elected to run the ball instead of throw and had success.  Typically in those quick change situations you see teams attack down the field rather than run between the tackles.  Stuffing the run on 1st down following a turnover will be something to watch for.

Denver saw negative temps last week evening during daytime at -6 degrees...we set a record high temperature one day and a record low the next couple days.  Gotta love the Rocky Mountain weather!

PS:  ski resorts are open in CO and many people are already getting out to ski/ ride.  If you're bored over Thanksgiving....make the trip west!

Here are some others....Terry Glenn, Antonio Pittman, Beanie, Santonio, Cris Carter, Keith Byars....

How far back are we allowed to go?!

Additional depth and health at D Line...having an actual rotation to spell some guys would go a long way if its a close game in 2nd half/ 4th quarter.

I'm saving this post and will break it out when Bell wins the f'ing Thorpe Award...ridiculous

Comment 17 Nov 2014

One name comes to mind when I think about how much size matters in secondary...Antoine Winfield.  I like Bell's size, speed and aggressiveness.  The secondary has to be built to defend both spread teams where you'll be in man to man coverage with speedy receivers and also have to tackle big RBs in downhill run game.  He provides both skill sets

He also has the talent to make a huge positive play...what then?  Why in the world is it a good idea to bench a young guy for an entire game for dropping a punt?  The all time best competitors, champions want and dream of the opportunity to win the game for their team...they want to be on the field, they want the ball in their hands when it matters most.  That's the culture Urban wants, not a bunch of nail bitting, purse swingers!  End rant...

He caught a tough pass on a key third down and took it to the house!  He adds another dimension/ threat to the offense and plays extremely hard.  It's about effort for Urban...he doesn't want guys playing tight with fear of making mistakes.  Leave that for the maniac in South Bend...

Who is Marshall's back-up at this point?  Someone equally untested?!  This is a young team.  Your "simple football psychology" approach is not one size fits all...some guys respond far better when getting opportunity to make the next play more than watching from bench.  This isn't the NFL...we can't make roster moves mid-season.  What happens when the replacement makes an error?  Do we then go to the 3rd string?  There is a methodology to creating the depth chart...starters are the BEST at that position as shown in practice with lots of reps.  Why did JT not get benched after throwing bad INT?  Should Cardale have come off the bench immediately?  No, because JT was able to go back out there and do what he is fully capable of doing!  This isn't f'ing Notre Lame who has as maniac coach that influences his guys to play tight...afraid to make a mistake rather than playing free and loose ready to make the BIG play!
