Right, since we have trips to that side there should be 3 defenders covering the 3 players to thwart the screen pass and instead there are 2 defenders and then a LB cheated toward the LOS and a safety cheated deep.  It feels like that doesn't even need to be a packaged play as that LB is never going to actually cover the slot receiver if there is any run action.

Yes, he was objectively better than those guys.  I think the play calling was more balanced and nuanced when KG was the QB however.  Herman/Meyer tended to rely on Braxton left/Braxton right rather than calling a balanced gameplan.  Then in the passing game tended to rely on play action bombs to make the defense pay for selling out to stop Braxton's legs rather than a balanced passing attack.  The offense therefore became a bit of feast or famine but we feasted more than we went hungry.  This year should be more balanced meals but less feasting.

When you directly quote a reporter that says something "might" happen, what makes you decide to post a thread that says it already happened?

Any music genre that has "dance" in the title is highly likely to be bad.  But there's lots of good electronic music pre-auto-tune.  That's the kind of stuff that basically ends up on car commercials these days.  Like Amon Tobin.

Josh Perry because I have no idea who his backup is going to be.  Bennett and Bosa are the best players on D but there's a lot more depth at DL.  At other not-so-deep positions we have a position battle so there's a clear backup (whoever loses the battle).

Adolphus committed somewhat awkwardly* as the news of Urban's hiring was propagating through the blogosphere.  But yea, technically before it was final.

*Only in that he said he really hopes Urban is the coach when Fickell was still interim HC.

Who are the other guys still here that committed pre-Urban and post-Tressel in the 2012 class?  I am aware of Elflein and Tyvis Powell for sure.  Are there any others that are still with the program?

I'd rather keep the Memphis pick and supplement the roster in the long run with a player on a rookie deal.  This team will be in luxury tax territory starting in 2015 so you need to make up for the fact that guys like Miller are reaching the end of their careers and bolster the bench with a combination of rookies and veteran minimum ring chasers.
