He's served an 11 game suspension thus far, its not as if he'd be getting off without punishment. Him coming back and playing doesn't send a negative message to anyone except opposing QB's.
Technically, the B1G CG isn't on our schedule yet. My hope is they said a 10 game suspension was enough, and he got his life in order
I can't emphasize how much I want this to be true!!!!!!!!!
At times he was, they like to move him around to try and confuse the offense. Baldwin held his own against him nicely too, but Decker absolutely shut him down.
Not a midwest guy, but Nick Bosa should be the gem of the 2016 class.
Calhoun was hurt? Not seriously, limping off then returning doesn't mean you're hurt.
Mewhort wasn't draftd in the 2nd? Also, Decker not being as good as NFL quality Seniors during his Sophmore season says what exactly?
Good call, totally forgot about that.
Urban even said decker was easily the worst starter last year.
Well, 3 of the other 4 starters from last year are starting in the NFL so I wouldn't read too far into that statement. As for Decker not being that good, what are you basing that on? How much of an impact did Shilique Calhoun have in the MSU game? He's likely to be a 1st round pick in April.
Antonio Underwood and Tommy Brown as well I believe.
So we get Decker AND Warriner back next year, I like the way you think!
Still early but I haven't seen him mentioned in any mocks I've seen. Gotta think he comes back if he doesn't get 1st round hype, at least thats my hope.
Nothing against Durkin, but Fickell hands down.
As a LB coach, Durkin has produced names like John Bostic, Jelani Jenkins and Ronald Powell. Not a bad list by itself but pretty thin when you compare it to AJ Hawk, Anthony Schlegel, Bobby Carpenter, James Laurinaitis, Brian Rolle, Austin Spitler and Ryan Shazier.
Fickell has done a tremendous job producing LB's at OSU.
As for Fickell as a DC, here's how I look at it. 2005 to 2010, Fickell co-DC on the field and Heacock Co-DC in the box. Our D was stellar. 2011, Fickell leaves the D staff to be HC, we see a MAJOR dropoff. 2012-2013, Fickell co-DC on the field and Withers co-DC in the box. Our D was bad. 2014, Fickell co-DC on the field nd Ash co-DC in the box, we see improvement. How can anyone look at that objectively and say that Fickell is the weak link?
Meyer on Barrett’s running ability: “He’s a very good scrambler … if it’s not there, he puts his foot in the ground and we get six yards.”
Sometimes he gets 86 too........
Given Bowen's size, this one may fit better:
Stoops would be a HUGE upgrade for them, but they still wouldn't be a threat to become the class of the B1G. He'd give them more hope fot the occasional upset over us, but he couldn't consistently hang with Urban. MSU fans would be the most impacted by the move outside of AA.
2012: Taylor Decker, Jacoby Boren, Pat Efflein, Kyle Dodson, Joey Oconnor
2013: Evan Lisle, Billy Price
2014: Jamarco Jones, Big Meech, Kyle Trout, Marcelys Jones, Brady Taylor
Doesn't look like anything is wrong with our OL recruiting to me.
He'll face Joey for 1 season if he starts right away. After that it will be Nick Bosa that is haunting his dreams if he's at PSU.
Exactly, Brady Hoke was doing better at this stage at scUM than Franklin is at PSU. Until we see franklin garner some success on the field, he's the next Hoke in the B1G.
Well guess who tired them out Mark?
Haha, good catch. Looks like he goes in with every intention of blocking but quickly realizes all 3 are afraid to hit the Beast so his services aren't required.
Haha, me too. I remember laughing at him alot that day.
Best part of the run to me is watching Marcus Hall absolutely destroy his guy which opened a hole you could drive a truck through at the LoS.
He was definitely in Beast Mode that day (and pretty much every Saturday the last 2 years)
No way it hurts his draft stock, he'll still be the 1st RB off the board in April. If anything, NFL teams may like the fact that he lost 4 games of wear and tear.
Sounds about right. AJ Green got 4 as well for selling his game jersey. Tat 5 got 5 games, but I think the extra game was the tradeoff for them playing in the Sugar Bowl.
You're in for so much awesomeness.
I'm envious, wish I could go back and experience the epicness of GoT for the first time all over again.
You better do it via text. After seeing her react to a CFB loss, I wouldn't want to be front row to her reaction to being blown off.
