I think this speaks volumes for the trust Urban has in Larry Johnson and eye for talent that Larry has! From what I recollect Urban extended a scholarship to Slade based only on Johnson's word!
#8 (Noah Spence) was busy getting held up by the 3 guys from NU that initially missed their blocks on the other 3 DL
I for one was very disappointed in the way we played on both sides of the ball; especially, the play calling in the 4th quarter... RUN HYDE!!!
Our receivers, outside of the secondary, were the most disappointing unit of the day I thought. I can remember at least three drops, there might be more but I remember 3 very clearly, that cost us points or first downs. We need a big physical receiver who can go get us that catch when we need it and hopefully that receiver is Jeff Green.
Lastly, I thought our TE's would feast in the second half... and without any proof to back this claim up IF (lol) they would have kept smashing the middle with Hyde our TE's and slot receiver would have come up large and we would have won.
Again, I have to wonder if it is not a lack of talent, but rather a scheme issue with our defense.
Great job again Ross. Love reading these breakdowns!
We replaced 9 starters on 'D' if I am correct and if all we need to fix is some missed tackles I think we are on the right track; granted the two key people who missed tackles that game were Roby and Shazier!!! C'mon man!!!

If Hall has to step in for Hyde for three games I could see Dontre Wilson or Jalin Marshall filling in for Hall at the 'Percy' position
Could this post also include where the top 3-5 teams on this list rank against the national list?
