Thanks, all good points. To me it seemed like Samuel looked very good as a WR this year. Lots of catches. But I am sure not much skill training or at least not nearly as much as the true WR. So the fact that he excelled as did Christian Kirk as a freshmen leads me to speculate it is not as much teachable skill as athleticism.
Just shows Coach Smith can teach
If they played the position before in HS, how hard is it to actually create some separation? Serious question. Smith is not training them to be brain surgeons. I doubt it all that difficult to do if you can actually do it
Don't know the method you are using, assuming it is consistent over time, but no way does Michigan have a better class then ours. What that means to me, is your methodology is faulty. Like developing a new fangled calculator that does not add 2+2 correctly.
For the record, I am high on the guy. Blowing up against the best of the best means a whole lot more than playing inferior competition in HS
If Urbs can get this to work, I think his career will have greater longevity, less chance of burn out. I know what he was trying to do the past few years and lets give some tremendous credit with his hires on the defense. Fantastic! He came across as being too nice or naieve on the offensive side. Too willing to promote from within. That is great as long as the internal candidate is as good as the guy you could pull in the the outside. Clearly that was not the case. In this instance, Urbs underperformed what a great leader/CEO would do
Great write up. I think what many, many people fail to realize is just because a coach has experience and put in the time, does not make them an effective coordinator. Ask yourself in your companies how many truly elite employees you know. And by elite I'm talking not about doing a good job, but razor sharp, high intelliect, great leader. There is not many of those. Most large companies have several. Just because Urbs promotes a coach does not mean that guy was elite. I would reckon in all of CFB there may be a couple dozen at most of the guys I am talking about. At OSU, we deserve one of these guys. I just get the feeling that in the play booth, these guys just didn't have the apptitude to make creative calls or even logical ones. Again, think of a chess grandmaster.
These guys were playing checkers and not very well.
Except when you go to Clemson
Did I really need to put the sarcasm font on this? For petes sake.
Ward, Webb - whats the difference? aren't they the same person?
Composite number 414? No thanks
I tend to agree. I think he will likely get drafted but where depends on his forty. If he runs a 4.7 or better I would be surprised. I call 5th round.
I have less problems/issues with their University and Programs then I do with their fan base. I think Paul Finebaum said it pretty well recently we he said they were the fanbase he disliked the most. They think their University is Harvard, Stanford, and Notre Dame all rolled into one.
Loving these moves by Urbs. There is a little Saban in him after all.
We taking the title from Bama this year. That is two losses in a row for Old Nick
Hell yea! Nice to have a commit after so many early exits. was making us cray
Clemson - always the bridesmaid. You don't have it Dabs!
ha ha me too. Was delayed about 15 minutes.
