You hit the nail on the head - we don't need tons of "wow" moments from the middle, just need to lead the defense, get guys in the right spots and cover your piece of the field. McMillan wasn't a "wow" guy, but extremely effective as the QB of the defense and handling his assignments. Feeling more and more comfortable with Worley moving over to the middle with every passing day.
I second the comment about he WMD's. There is always at least one each day that really piques my interest (and causes me to spend 30 minutes delaying the start of actual work).
I imagine it takes longer to find 4 or 5 decent WMD's each day than it does to write half of the Skully content.
From what I can see, Mickey actually never enrolled at UC-Santa Barbera, so technically he is on his second school. He is now enrolled at Arizona State and will be eligible to start playing in December 2017. So strange that they both have gone through multiple programs.
Reading Mitchell's name made me go on a small "where is he now" quest.
So, we all know he transferred to Texas Tech after redshirting at OSU in 2013, then sat out a year. In 2015 he played sparingly, "racking up" 7 total tackles and decided to transfer out of Tech.
He landed at Southeastern University, an NAIA school in Florida, where his younger brother, Kiwi, was also playing football. He only appeared in 2 games in 2016 and had 5 total tackles. Wondering if he got hurt, but I couldn't find anything on that and got tired of hunting after going down that rabbit hole for 30 minutes. Not exactly how most of us thought his career would play out.
I have heard nothing but good things about Savannah's St. Patty's parade. Just bedlam, in a good way.
Got ya. Just seems odd since it is on a Friday this year. But my only frame of reference is Cleveland and they always do it on March 17, regardless of the day of week.
Wait......the bigger question here is why is the Dallas St, Patty's Day parade 4 days early and on a Monday?
In related news I saw a squirrel this morning.
From what I recall, it was rumored that the team was split on the 2 - some players were backing Germaine to start, others backed Jackson. Seems like Cooper was stuck so he went with the rarely optimal 2 QB system.
Doesn't BeaTTUN have a trademark on "Dude's and Becky's"?
It looks pretty impressive. But my biggest takeaway is that their Director of Recruiting is a guy named Thad Turnipseed. Seriously. Is there a more southern sounding name than Thad Turnipseed? Maybe if it was Beauregard Turnipseed, but that is about it.
Didn't he ultimately end up at New Mexico? Even there I don't think he put up any remotely decent numbers.
Agreed. Took me a second to process it, but great reference. Wonder how many of us actually got it.
Agree it was to early to go for two, but they just would have kicked the extra point after their last touchdown to get to 30 points and still lose by 1. Either way, it is a delicious loss.
I am sad that I have but one measly upvote to give you. The shortened version of "recruiting" (no, I will not type it) is my singular biggest pet peeve on this site.
Insert "get off my lawn" comment here.
Even sillier is the dv you got.....lighten up people....
Same reaction I had! LIke, Winfield can only be what, 30? Oh, wait, what, he graduated in 1998? Damn does time fly.
I think the Lattimore speculation is driven by his injury history. He had a big year, got noticed and stayed healthy. If I am him, I'd have to weigh another year developing vs. the possibility if getting hurt and missing significant time again.
Still makes me sad to this day. We lost him way too early.
I saw that.....he should find a safe house and lay low until this blows over....
677.....and yes I scrolled through 200+ entries to make sure I wasn't duplicating!
Clicked on the Charlie Murphy link and was shocked at his thin appearance. Thought he must be sick, but a very haphazard and lazy internet search showed nothing than a bunch of people wondering the same thing. But he has apparently been very thin for a couple years and it may be related to the death of his wife. Hope he is OK. His Chappelle "True Hollywood Stories" were my favorites.
Yep, I went into that wormhole too. Was gone so long I forgot I was even reading the Skully.
Agreed and I think Tate seems like the natural choice to step up. He felt like the heart of the team last year and him going down is what really kicked the downward spiral into high gear. If we are waiting for Loving to step up and be the leader, I think we will be waiting a long time. Just don't see that in his DNA.
Does he still have a large audience? Maybe 20 years ago when this happened before his show became an unlistenable caricature of itself. I haven't listened to Rome in many years, not even sure he is still on the air in the Cleveland market.
Regardless, you are right, Harbaugh cant win this battle.
