Hopefully this isn't an errant false memory, but I recall him making an insane play, I think on special teams, as a freshman, coming out of nowhere to keep a punt returner from scoring inside the 10. Roby was hella fast.
Emory Jones is likely starting as a true sophomore, if not sooner. Dude's ceiling is way higher than anyone since Pryor. He is going to be ridiculously good.
"Out of" was the only position he played well.
I'd make the 4 of them, as Landers is too quick to keep off the field.
I gotta think NFL players are pretty well schooled on how to react to violence to best protect their wealth.Would be in their agent's best interests to makes sure that was understood.
Heh, whose commitment was that from?
I love that this 11w is getting mature enough that we have our own little "in" jokes and references. It's the sort of fun reddit used to be. :)
Just noticed Smooth Kenny G in frame for Hall's shining moment.
This. If it isn't Luke, and Mike's not already winning Super bowls as an NFL HC.
A decade from now...Kenny Guiton.
No doubt. He's looked great. But playing against backup on bad teams, or tired starters with a game out of reach. So grain of salt, yadda yadda. But he made quick decisions and throws a beautiful f'ing ball. I for one would have no worries about him stepping in.
However....If Haskins can sling it as well, he fits the mold better than Joe. And with Jones coming in '18 as a better version of Terelle Pryor, I think whoever ends up #3 would be better served transferring. Won't play much this year, so sit out anyway and get 3 years to run a team. JMO
I, for one, look forward to Superman's ascension.
I agree. I just think one of those things needing to happen will be an injury to one or both of Haskins and Jones. Tate will be fun to watch, no doubt; IMO it'll just be in the 4th quarter of blowouts. :)
Feel free to bookmark this and mock me 4 years from now, but I don't think Tate is going to start a game for us, barring injury to a starter. Emory Jones, if he ends up part of the '18 class, is gonna be legendary. Until then, Haskins is gonna be tough to beat out.
Just my take. Tate is a great player, and by all accounts an awesome guy. But knowing what the rest of that QB room looks like in 2 years....I just don't see him beating out Haskins or Jones.
Any idea when M or L sizes will be restocked for "Ohio's Moon"?
Whatevah. It was a legitimate concern that Washington would get in and it come down to us or PSU. Given we lost to them, and they won the hardest conference in the country, while being one of the hottest teams over the last 2 months, it was entirely reasonable to accept the possibility the committee would put them in over us.
It wasn't pessimism. It was, I think, a fair reading of the situation. It wasn't an outcome I wanted, but one I thought plausible. Why that amuses you...
To be fair, isn't that how almost everyone is these days? See also: that other polarizing thing we aren't allowed to talk about (and don't want to talk about) here.
Any word on Kenny Guiton's current status? He was a GA @ houston, wasn't he?
Who is the woman Coombs is with?
Not that such a game ever happened, but if it had, Ginn would have been hurt during the celebration after he housed it. Not during the return, per se.
FTR, Dave is no relation.
They asked if the coaches would do throw backs, which I presume means dressing up like Woody.
Yeah, he's a sophomore, though. That size and basketball...why not OT?
Soft spot in my heart for Donatos. All those little pepperonis...
The most ridiculous part is they say he played 10 positions, but count every DB spot (including "nickle") as different, and all three WR positions as unique. If you are a LB who stays on the field when the D would normally go into a nickle package, you are still a LB. And DB positions differ based on the coverages called.
I like Peppers. I think, based on what I know about him, he's a pretty unique guy, and he's a tremendous athlete. But I am pretty sure that Jerome Baker is probably the best RB/HB on our team or theirs. But we only need him to play LB. Peppers is a smaller Darren Lee on a team that needs him to play everywhere.
