Now the question is...How many times will we run the H-back end around to the short side of the field?
I was thinking the same thing. You would think McCall would be at the forefront of all the coaches minds after what he was able to do in his limited touches last year. So hearing he is still battling for a 2nd string RB, not battling for the H spot, and 2nd string for punt returns shows there is still a concern somewhere
I've only seen a couple episodes but you tell he has a bit of an ego and a sense of entitlement, but how could he not? He has been on top of the mountain for a few years and plays for a team that wins 70-0 on a regular basis, on top of living in Las Vegas, being a good looking dude, and growing up in a well off family. He does seem like a hard worker though and seems smart enough to not let his ego get in the way of reality for the most part. It will be interesting to see how he deals with this QB room going forward if he doesn't earn the starting job. I've felt all along that either he or Haskins will end up transferring, depending on the depth chart next year.
I have never heard of chronic bicep injuries like Hilliard is having. Hamstrings, shoulders, knees..yeah, but biceps seem to generally be one of muscles that can take a beating
My doc said if he looks at any MRI from an athlete, 99% of the time he will see some degree of a torn labrum. Just depends on how severe and how willing you are to play with the pain/weakness. In Baron's case, I would guess they are being proactive and taking care of this before his career gets started. I wouldn't worry too much
Keep in mind, 240 is Kwon's combine weight when he was trying to be as fast as possible. He weighed 250 coming out of high school so I would imagine that is close to what his actual playing weight is at least
Last night was pretty ugly to watch on the defensive side, but I am not very concerned. As many have said above, the NBA regular season is a joke and playoff basketball is completely different. Don't forget about last year's regular season when the Cavs struggled mightily especially defensively, LeBron was subtweeting everyone, Klove sucked ass, and Golden State won 73 games. Switch to playoff time and the Cavs demolished everyone while Golden State was one KD/Russ meltdown away from not making the finals. Give me Lebron and Kyrie in playoff mode any day of the week.
I assume they are talking about the women's team
Im sure Sports Science would explain it to us with a few meaningless comparisons to exotic animals. "As you can see, Justin Hilliard's explosiveness is tracked at a rate 5x faster than a East African Gerbil."
Tom Herman just slammed his fists on his desk and put his grill in
I'll be interested to see who takes that MLB spot since that is such an important position. I'm hoping we hear Justin Hilliard's name during these spring practices.
He's had some questionable tweets this week, but most predictions I've seen still have him coming this way
Well...Remember that McLaurin, Campbell, Gibson, and Baugh all had big spring games last year and Mack was being hyped as a possible starter. Not that I'm not interested to see if anything feels different, but it's never really is a great indication of how the season will go
Because Penn State needs another OOC game so they can schedule Middle Tennessee State (and probably lose) and still complain about how they didn't make the CFP
The only "What could have been?" that would help this team enough is if D-Russ was still here for his junior season
Solid, grounded coaching staff and a safe environment...Pure Michigan
I am convinced that Nike pushes these college inspired shoe designs onto their least skilled designers and gives them a two hour time limit. Mostly everything Nike does seems pretty well thought out, but these have been pretty bad
I believe the stat was JT's passer rating when throwing to Dontre was the highest of any QB-WR connection in the country
Sucks for Dontre, I was really hoping he would somehow get an invite. Even though I don't think he would post great numbers, just getting his name out there is what he needs. Maybe he can get a practice squad offer and continue to progress his way up.
This is a reality show I could get into. Real Sons of Coaches
That is sort of a mute point because Baugh has only played in 3 games before 2016 and his year was statistically pretty similar to Heurman's junior year. All I'm saying is that I think in the right offense, he has the potential to be a very reliable option
I guess it just depends on your definition of panning out. He has certainly not lit the world on fire, but he is the starting TE for Ohio State and he has not made many negative plays that I can recall. I think he has the potential to be one of the better tight ends that we have seen in awhile, and the last two are both playing in the NFL.
Mike Mitchell was a good one, but it was amazing how many recruits in that class ended up panning out (Vonn Bell, Jalin Marshall, Joey Bosa, Eli Apple, Zeke, Dontre Wilson, Marcus Baugh, JT Barrett, Gareon Conley, Tyquan Lewis, Chris Worley, Billy Price, Darron Lee). So its only right that ONE of them was a bust
Looking back at the spring game last year we were tricked in so many ways. Baugh had like 79 catches, Torrance Gibson looked like a breakout receiver, and Terry Mclaurin caught a deep ball. But, JT did get picked off by Hooker and Lattimore so some things stayed true
