I am one of those Buckeye fans with Laker allegiances as well. Gotta love the way D'Angelo has been playing lately, turning around before that 3 even goes in shows the confidence he's playing with right now. Despite Byron's best efforts...
I would think it is a leverage play, but who knows. I was born and raised in San Antonio and still live here, and I know this place would go crazy for a pro football team.
Now for a semi-pro football team like the Raiders....not so sure.
Knda crazy to think one of the mentioned options earlier this week was Buckeye legend Antoine Winfield, who has no coaching experience. Urban instead goes out and gets a guy with head coaching experience at the college and pro level. Apparently he can recruit coaches too, love the hire!
I actually agree with Vannett as an x-factor, but as a blocker. If Farris has issues solo with Calhoun we may see a lot of tight end help just to slow him down and give JT more time or just give Zeke enough time to get by him.
I just got through on nike.com. It was waiting to add it to my cart for about 10 minutes.
It's really easy to get riled up about these early season playoff predictions and what not. For fun though, look back at last years playoff predictions on October 5, 2014.
Final four were FSU, Auburn, Miss St, & Oklahoma (only one of which ended up making it). We were lined up for a trip to the Citrus Bowl. A lot can change between now and the end of the season. Just keep winnin'.
He wears an under armour hoodie on the sidelines while losing a lot?
Surprised no one has mentioned the real reason Edsall is getting fired. He wears a hoodie on the sidelines.
Missed out on these, they were sold out really quick. Gotta get me a pair of these black ones though. I'll be ready to add to cart as soon as they're released.
The fact this is something being discussed by the coaches means they know the offense has underpeformed in the red zone under CJ. I agree with many on here that play calling has been awful in these situations, but there were some touch throws that were missed. The scores to several of these games would look a lot more favorable if we weren't settling for 3 so often.
Regardless, not sure it will do Cardale's rhythm any favors if he gets yanked out every time they are in the red zone.
There was a goal to go situation last week where they passed on all three downs where it felt like they should have gone smashmouth as the field got shorter and limited the effectiveness of Cardale's rocket. Take this with the usual disclaimer of I'm no football genius but it was a strange series of play calls that ended in a field goal.
So on top of the deep balls that were left short, they left some points on the board with red zone execution/play calling as well. I suppose these can be looked at as fixable errors and Urban would say.
Yes, yes, and yes. The arm strength down the field becomes less important if no one can get open downfield. Need to be able to get the 8-20 yard gains if those plays 40+ yards down the field aren't going to be there.
Another thing I've noticed with Braxton out of the wildcat is that he doesn't seem to hand it off out of the formation much either. So while the obvious variation in the play is for him to pass, I think it would also help if he occasionally gave it up to the running back to keep defenses honest, rather than simply plowing forward.
ESPN and UF really struggling to let this Urban-Gators thing go. Someone give them a hug.
That's a shame, it's gonna be a good one! I live nearby in San Antonio so it's only a 3 hour drive for me. Since I work in the oilfield I actually spend a lot of time in Houston(more than I would like). I am thinking about heading to Tempe for the Oregon game or the UofA game though, haven't been back since I graduated in 2012
I'm going to Arizona State-Texas A&M next weekend in Houston, I'm an ASU alum
Beginning to look like September 7 is when Noah Brown introduces himself to the rest of the football world in a big way
I'm an ASU alum, during orientation I was very confused as to why they were teaching me to throw up the shocker. Turns out it doubles as a pitchfork ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Definitely talented enough, but I'm not sure he'll be on campus three more years if he becomes as good as we all believe he will!
I struck out on Nike, Champs, and Eastbay
Carroll's loaded USC team also famously lost to the Vince Young show and the coaching wonder known as Mack Brown. Harbaugh wasn't the only one to lead an inferior team to a victory over USC in the Carroll days. If I'm not mistaken Mike Riley beat him too, are we worried about Nebraska now?
Seems to be more athletic than he's given credit for, much like JT. Very excited to see what he can do!
