Regarding the DB's, I think in about three years, Bell will still be there but not the others... the crew they're bringing in... SWEET!

Pridgeon will be battling with Prince.
Isn't that Jerry Sandusky?
What about Occam's razor?
The offense will be centered around JT. He needs to have WR's really step up their game. He can't win a Heisman just incessantly running the zone read no matter how good he is at it. I don't want him running it more than 5 times a game, please.
Just cut and paste the comments from the "OSU Finishes 4th in AP Poll" here.
I can't believe that premeditated "jumping" didn't get more play, especially nationally. Replay it slowly. Rather than leave the field, they circled Wilson and provoked him. Stay classy, Michigan
Seriously, you were in the Dome that night?
Good point. Supposedly, BM could throw it 30 - 40 yards... that would be enough to keep the opponent honest, but the film must have shown all future opponents: 1) he ain't throwing and 2) he'll be damned if he hands off his limited chances for personal glory to another runner. (By "personal glory", I mean the enhancement of his NFL resume.)
So was this guy, our newest "clown", the Johan Hill character in the movie Moneyball?? I remember when Jonah Hill said "We don't care about defense." What an appropriate hire... it's already our core philosophy.
Similar to my wife's comment: "How 'bout getting into the end zone? Try that strategy for a change."
Wildcat? I saw it with BM this year. That's like getting thrown into jail. Don't wish for that, TG!
Looks like our Browns have decided that a future Super Bowl is never going to happen. They're "pivoting" and now shooting for a World Series appearance instead.
What do you mean? He could not afford to pay his fine because he is a student? (Didn't he take the OL to Hyde Park?)
He can take his boys to Hyde Park but he can't pay a small fine.... and he keeps not showing for court dates? I have a few questions for Zeke.
Which game was it where we lost because of a blocked FG which the Illini returned for a TD despite the fact that he threw a forward lateral FROM HIS KNEES... oh, and the ball went forward FIVE YARDS! Worst blown call I've ever seen. In days before reviews. I don't recall which year it was...
I bet coaches who do their film work (like you) will see that and test Tyvis again.
Great work with the film. But, given the two touchdown lead, I think Tyvis should have suspected a double move ... Bama needed a quick TD there. I think Tyvis should have been more conservative, IMHO.
Yes, I was alluding to that too... Tyvis tried to jump the route "to get the glory of the kill". And then a few minutes later after he makes the winning interception in the end zone, Tyvis runs it out of the end zone, knowing that downing the ball ends the game. Again, was he focusing on personal glory? I see a pattern forming here with Tyvis. Thoughts?
Thanks, Jonathan. Check out that Oregon/OSU play... it is a carbon copy of routes and coverage... and sadly the result. :) I think Powell tries to jump passes to aggressively.
Sorry, I must disagree on the analysis of the TD that opened the scoring in the Maryland game. I think that they were in Cover 4, not 3. I just can't imagine Bell setting up OUTSIDE the hash mark if he has the deep middle third.
Second, Ash said that it was POWELL that was "out of position." What actually happened is that Powell had the deep quarter or half on that side but bit on the crossing route which left the deep post behind him. Powell did EXACTLY the same thing against exactly the same routes with the same coverage when Oregon hit its long TD pass last January. In both instances, you see after the play Bell angrily pointing at some one... probably Tyvis P.
At the stadium it appeared to me that Vonn Bell screwed up on the long pass TD that started the scoring yesterday by Maryland. But UPON FURTHER REVIEW… Tyvis Powell and Vonn B. were the two safeties in what was probably a four-deep zone (or quarter/quarter/half). Bell was OUTSIDE the hash mark on his side, so he certainly did not think he was covering the entire middle of the field. (It was not a two-deep man under… the LB’s were clearly dropping in their zones) So it was zone.
But Powell appears to have tried to stay close to the end on the left side doing a crossing route instead of dropping to cover the post route, which was his responsibility (deeper than the deepest).
For those who have seen the Oregon game multiple times (raises hand), it was the same routes and coverage that resulted in the long TD pass that Oregon made in the NC game. Virtually identical. In that play, Powell also did the same thing!
You saw Powell appear to point at the end of the play. I think he was trying to tell the world “It wasn’t me.” And it wasn’t.
