Honestly I think after three years everyone should be eligible to be drafted but you should be able to wait and see then decide if ypu want to go to back to school. I would increase roster size in NFL and games. Stretch season out another 6 weeks or so but give 2 more buy weeks. 2 pre season games at most. When you play on Thursday night you do not play the Sunday before. Leading to longer season, more bye weeks to rest up, more players on teams, more games on TV, bigger contracts. Win for everybody imho.
Definitely would've love to see Energy and Isles on 7 vs 7 in Rio. That would be awesome.
I honestly like baseball rule for college. You can turn pro right after high school or go to college for three years. Some guys who are top picks like Simmons and Okafor know they're lottery picks. College hurts stock for some. So either no college or minimum 3 years.
Honestly we have no true scheme. Find players who fit our scheme. We need people who will come and work hard for four years. People are way too comfortable. Smaller schools and less talented schools get quality players for a scheme and mold them. We have to much isolation and poor decision making.
In all honesty we need a proven s&c coach, better shooting coach, and hold each other accountable. You know you must work with Meyer. Coach Mick lets you know you will work hard or leave. I would rather have anyone and everyone who refuse to work hard transfer and start over then look pitiful next year.
I just wish Warren Ball success in his future endeavors. I wonder who will be the two who will not be on team come June. Hopefully the numbers workout.
I think Clark can be a great qb. It takes time and he has it. No one is expecting him to start from day one. In my opinion he will probably redshirt and then then wait a few more years. He can work on mechanics and mental part here with the rest of qb. It's just takes time. Hopefully he understands that.
The 1 technique other nt never make alot of plays state wise but look at the MLB and if he is making alot of tackles then nt is doing his job.
Nick Bosa and Malik Barrow are dt. Bosa is great at ssde but at dt he's a monster. If Barrow can play nt no worries. We need another db and this class is finished.
Imo I think Nick Bosa plays 3 tech dt. He's shorter and more solid. He's a 3-4 a de or 3 tech in my honest opinion. He obliterated centers and offensive guards in his highlights. I can see him up to about 295lbs with his frame. He's not finished growing and he's 270 lbs. Coach Mick will put the right weight on him. I also think Hawkins ends up at de. Three te in this class is a logjam. Picture Cooper, Bosa, Barrow, and Hawkins. Barrow plays nt like Washington did last year.
I more concerned about will lb. Most lb on the team are small at about 235lbs. Perry was 255 lbs. 20 lbs matter when disengaging from o line.
I would love to see him as a de. He reminds me of Hubbard so if he grows into 260lbs he could be a special de
Cleveland isn't as far away as one would think. Playmakers at wr are paramount. Rt and rg upgrades. A qb upgrade and depth on defense. Wr playmakers are most important. If I'm Cleveland I'm trading down. Maybe get an extra pick or two. Get a wr and o lineman.
How about Ryan Cubit? Illinois offense looked better this season with marginal talent.
Nothing against the two offensive coordinators but EW just needs to either focus on the o line or be second in command and with Beck our qbs this year looked worst then the four string last year and we never saw that guy. We need a better qb coach/ offensive coordinator/ primary play caller.
Play calling was terrible and he took the blame for it. People still talking about playoffs like we going. We will not be in the playoffs this year so get that idea out of your head. Focus on ttun.
Do you think he would or would he rep his new school?
Interesting thought has any wr caught a screen besides Michael Thomas? I think Braxton Miller and Samuel would be dangerous in open space. If it has been ran it has not been ran lately.
Diesel is a beast and Larry Johnson gets the most out of his players. He teaches you how to be technically sound and use your hands. Some times you see o lineman never put a hand on the d line.
The power run game that Stafford is using against UCLA is the same tactic ttun will us against us. Run with 6 o lineman, fb, te, hb, and one wr. Secondary has to be fundamentally sound and to combat power run into recommend a 46 bear.
Michael Hill imo should and has received more playing time. He's controlling the point of attack playing the nt. Schutt is playing well at times but is inconsistent.
I think our top 5 dlinenan has been Washington, Bosa, Lewis, Hubbard, and Hill. Schutt is good but Hill takes on the double teams better. I see an increased role for me but I'm not sure if he will start this year.
If you recorded or you can rematch the game Michael Hill number 77 played great. We stopped the inside run with him and Washington.
People need to understand that we will contend for an national championship next year. Four new starters on the o line,new qb,new rb, new wr,new te since Jeff Huerman is hurt a rs freshman qb. That's a whole new offense not to mention the new defensive scheme and six new defensive starters.This a year to gain experience. Next year begins the run where for several years we will be in national championship contention. Fifteen new starters is alot to replace with a new scheme.
Lower tier teams should play on Thursday or Friday. BIG ten needs to evolve and get more exposure asap. Purdue, Indy, Minny, Illini, Rutgers, and even Iowa could all benefit. I've seen some kids look at a school because they were on TV when no one else was. It's big to kids and that's more exposure which is good for the conference. Perennial cellar dwellers could gain a lot from this. No way BIG Ten schools should be ranked lower in recruiting than most of MAC schools. Shaking my head in disbelief at some of these rankings.
