Chris Peterson.  The gut squeezed every ounce of talent he could at Boise and had them on the national scene all 4-6 years he was there.  Glad to see he is in a Power-5 school where he can reach into 4 and 5 stars to run his offense with multiple personnel groupings.  I can't wait to see Washington in the Rose Bowl in 2-4 years

Yes Hoyer was inaccurate but that is because the passing is largely based on Play Action not 4 or 5 wide sets. But the running game 26 for 62 total seems to be that the commitment was not there.  Maybe a little less on the stretch plays with Tate and West might have produced better results 

Comment 20 Oct 2014

Browns will not be successful asking Hoyer or Manziel to win games throwing the ball more than 30 times in a game let alone 40.  Our rushing attack was pitiful yesterday and looks like Alex Mack is certainly worth the big money he got this offseason.  Offense needs to find creative ways to run the ball and target Jordan Cameron over the middle

Just a reminder, Today@ 5:00PM  is the last today to preorder a parking pass around the stadium for $12.25.  Otherwise its going to cost $40 to park in the yellow lots

Comment 14 Oct 2014

Comment 13 Oct 2014

Rutgers, Penn State and Michigan State all get byes before playing Ohio State — how is that legal!??!?!)

Well done Ross.

It is good to see that WRs are able to run other routes besides simple screens and go routes.  This week I could see JT looking towards the middle of the field which seems to be the most open with PA Inside ZOne and horizontal running game.  As the weeks go on do you think we will see the TEs being released into this area or being continued to be called upon to add to pass blocking in which case maybe taking away the middle of the field threat?

My only comment is that this interview is presented in video form as it is the only way to do justice to the speaker that Coach Bruce is to an audience. There is no way to feel the intensity and passion that Coach Bruce as for Ohio State and the players he coached through the printed word.  I encourage all 11Ws to hear Coach Bruce speak at least once in their lives.  IT will no doubt me an experience you will not forget.

 The BCS picked VT TTUN for ticket/$$$ purposes over bette teams and got a sh*tfest of a game.

Fixed it for you.  Lets not forget that #6 Boise State and #7 Kansas St were both  passed over for both schools.  Boise was regulated to the MACCO Las Vegas Bowl against 6-6 ASU  

Comment 03 Oct 2014

I smell a scam.  I have been watching the tickets on the secondary market falling since the season started especially the ones in the last rows which appear to be unsold single game tickets.  However since this "announcement" the price has gone up considerably again.  

Comment 30 Sep 2014

Great write up Ross question.  Do you see any differentiation in the WRs packages? I have noticed that Devin Smith, Dontre Wilson are frequently on the field together and come off with Michael Thomas and Jalin Marshall are on the field.  Are specific plays being run for these groups or are we seeing the same plays being run regardless of personnel?

Comment 26 Sep 2014

Just like it takes time to build or rebuild a football program it takes time to rebuild an organizational culture.  Lets remember that the 4th year band members are the last group that started under Dr. Woods who has been given a free pass by this investigation.  The student members that 3rd years and below have had only the values that Jon Waters has installed and built into them.  These third years are starting to take leadership roles this year.  It is too early to see growth in the band culture if there are still holdovers fromt he Woods regime.  Years 4 and 5 would have been more appropiate times to evaluate the band culture.  However, having the Feds yank out the blanket of federal funds obvioulsly sped up this process of reculturing the band.

Saw Billy Hamilton last year he came to the Bus as a Bat.  He put on a show every time zipping thru the outfield during BP

Comment 18 Sep 2014

Unfortunately these Indians have a rigged roster for the next two years.  Swisher and Bourn will both be on the roster regardless if they are one of the best 25 players.  Swisher is going to be a drag next year because where do you play him? 1b NO Santana   rf NO Murphy and Walters platoon.  I dont want Swisher  toDH because I would much rather have Jesus DH as a RIGHT HANDED Power bat.  THe only place I see the Tribe making an adjustment is to get a LHP starting pitcher to balance out all these RHP we have.  This team will be competitive over the next 1-4 years but not enough to break thru with 92-100 games to win the AL Central.
