Study up on the concept because here it comes...
Hill, Victor, Mack...need to start and play a LOT best pure WRs on the team
I am a big Campbell fan...but he needs to be a RB or at least the H
As we have seen on Kick-Off this season, when the moved him back there, he can be an explosive player with the ball in his hands...so move him into position to get the ball...
If you could have seen Roderick Smith in practice you would have thought he was going to win a Heisman, seriously...to be that big, that fast, that athletic...too bad they could never get it all to come together for him. Freak show...think Bo Scarbrough
Another one was Storm Klein...as an early enrolled freshman he was a straight up wrecking machine at Middle Linebacker. He was another one that I would have wagered would have left OSU with a Tree in the Grove.
Grant Schwartz should have stayed at Free Safety and never moved to WR. Kid had a great command of the field. That is a position switch I will never understand.
He may start out as a Safety but I would wager that before too long he ends up as the SAM linebacker
Two legit Outside WRs in the class
WR Coach...Inside and Outside
Not sure where you are going to use another defensive coach...unless they are going to divide Ends and Tackles...but the technique is the same for all 4 spots...
You need a hammer at RB to build the offense from...
Tebow, Hyde, Zeke...
When you don't have that Hammer is when you have the problems...
This kid could be that Hammer.
RB or LB?
I could see Burns as a potential move to Safety
Sheffield...Ward...Webb..._____________(Fuller, Smith,Arnette, another CB moved to Safety)
Sorry...hit the downvote on accident...
Anyway to fix that?
That being said, good luck Ed...thank you for your contributions the past 5 years...
Minnesota is getting a good teacher of the game of football...exactly what Fleck needs to succeed in Minneapolis
agree with the thought that the WR room is receiving a much needed kick in the pants' seat...
With White's skill set I could see him being utilized in the H-Back Spot
So an Ohio State caliber Shane Wynn for Kevin Wilson's offense...
I can not remember where I saw the stat...but Jones "Graded out" higher than Decker had...
If dude looks like he is going to be a 1st rounder...get paid young man!
Beck is going to have one heckuva resume...
If Texas is half-way decent the next two years he will be sitting pretty for a decent HC gig
Middle Linebacker...big hole (assuming Kwon goes pro)
A lot of promising raw materials...not sure we have a "natural" middle linebacker, though
This is going to be a tried and true LB coach...Meyer isn't going to make the same mistake twice
They have a LB coach...but not coordinator
I like Heater a lot...great coach...
Would fit in well with Meyer and his Staff...teacher of the game
Not sure how good of a recruiter he is, though, for better or worse
But, he is a DB guy...still need a LB coach
Paul Rhodes has also been a DB coach, for the most part, his entire career but he does fit the mold of Ohio State connections and a teacher of the game...plus he would be poaching another coach from Arkansas, which is also a plus
Ps...would be less than pleased to see Vrabel return, in any capacity, to Ohio State...he is right where he needs to be
Meyer is going to find the best FIT for his staff...he learned that lesson the hard-way with his first staff at OSU...
May or may not come with the Coordinator position...
So the list needs to look at the best linebacker coaches available and I also make sure they have Ohio connections
Might be onto something with Harley
Another point, Meyer has the blueprint for the defense so they new guy will not be bringing "his defense" with him
PR Machine at UofM is strong...
Instead of using an undersized player to set the edge and they subbed for Berger and played more or less a 53 look
Also...the Mike and Will position have evolved since Ash took over...
The Sam and Will are mirrored except one aligns to the field and the other boundary
The Mike is now really just the only "true" linebacker any more
Even though Perry played the Will spot for 2 seasons under Ash, I would not expect to see another Perry type person at Will. I think Baker could be more the norm
That being said, I wonder if Harrison could grow into a Mike..or maybe Jones..
With the Quarters scheme Ash implemented and the Cover 1 Schiano has hung his hat on, the Will needs to be able to Cover and Cover well...
3 Deep==How many defenders played the deep zones
2 Under==How many defenders played the underneath zones
Everybody else rushed the passer
Cover 1...1 deep safety
CBs play man to man on the outside most WR
Safety has TE (or a slot WR) man to man
LBs will play what they call "banjo" on the RB(s) and if the RB releases to their side, they will take them man-to-man.
Whichever running back does not have a RB release to him will play, basically, zone defense underneath and break on the QBs eyes/throw
