I love Josh Perry the person and think he's a solid college LB, but honestly I don't see him ever taking a snap in the NFL. I hope I'm wrong but you either need superior speed or superior instincts to be an NFL LB and I don't think he has either one.
Is he injured or something?
It's a positional thing. You don't want bulky guards and wings. Yes you want post players to put on mass but that is it. Bulk and muscle mass absolutely affects shooting touch in a negative way.
Urban was gonna be the next coach at Ohio State after Tressel regardless of what happened. Without Tatgate, it would have just happened a couple years later after Tressel retired.
The next question is will he follow his dad to Oregon State? I think he will, rather than having to pay for college
Honestly, I've been on the fence as far as Pelini goes over the years. He always won a lot of games so I respected him. After reading this, I hope Bo succeeds and Nebraska hovers in mediocrity always chasing bowl eligibility rather than conference championships.
I didn't down vote but my guess is people were upset he obviously didn't read the comments before him. His exact same question was asked and answered before he posted his question.
Not sure where you got your numbers but we are only one over. And we have until the start of fall camp to get down to 85.
Not sure why you got down voted so I got you one back. I predicted the same thing a couple weeks ago. I think it's the best thing to do considering our depth at LB. I see it as
OLB-Lee followed by Baker and Worley
ILB-McMillan followed by Berger and Conner
ILB-Hilliard followed by Berger and Conner
OLB-Perry followed by Booker and Johnson
If they over offered, why have they said all along they were still looking for more to sign? Your argument makes no sense
He will get a medical redshirt if they so desire. He played in less than 30% of the season
2017 unless you're implying Barrett leaves after his junior year. And by then you can add our 2016 class QB, whoever that will be
What list are you referring to?
I've counted three times and still come up with 87 on your list. However, I'm not worried about numbers. I still think we take 4 more guys. We have until fall camp to get down to 85. Attrition of 6 is a pretty average number really
I think we take 27, which means 4 more. I think we finish with a RB, DT, DB, and either a WR or another DT
Guys it's pretty simple. When Baylor wins tonight, them and TCU resume is basically identical. Since Baylor won the head to head, they will be in front of TCU. If we win, we stay ahead of Baylor. I've been saying this all week and today every talking head on TV said the same thing. Obviously you can't predict what the committee will do, but this is what makes sense and what their guidelines would suggest.
We will be in at 4 followed by Baylor and TCU
We need Baylor to win big. If they do, that will take away votes from TCU. I think that moves us to 4 with Baylor 5 and TCU 6. FSU would move back to 3
I've played and coached for a lot of years, and 3 months would be the longest rehab I've ever seen on a broken ankle. If that's the case there's more to the injury than what they've announced. Most broken ankles are anywhere from 3-6 weeks.
Braxton will not be full strength until August at the earliest. JT will be full strength in January or February. I mentioned this in another thread, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if JT plays in the national championship game on January 12th, assuming we make it there.
I have a simple compromise. Wear whatever it is that the PLAYERS choose. That's how a lot of other sports and different levels do it. Nike shouldn't have the final say and neither should the fans.
I think Jamarco Jones takes over at RT and Meechy gets the nod over Billy Price, who is easily the weak link on the OL. Maybe they move him back to defense, since that's where he was more highly rated coming in and we obviously have a need.
I see us moving to a 4 LB base set looking something like this
Lee- followed by Baker and Worley
Raekwon- followed by Berger and Connor
Hillard- followed by Berger and Connor
Perry- followed by Booker and Trey Johnson. Honestly, I see Perry being next years Curtis Grant. I think he will be the starter, but losing snaps more and more as the season progresses, most likely to Dante Booker
I still think JT will be ready for the playoff, assuming we make it. Broken ankles are not a bad injury at all. I was very surprised when they said out for the season so quickly. Either something besides a broken ankle is going on, or I think there's a little gamesmanship being done by Urban to mess with our opponent for the bowl game/playoff.
And if Braxton insists on still trying to be a QB, he won't be fully healed until about August, which means he will miss all of spring ball and summer workouts.
