He also high pointed a punt (caught with arms fully extended above his head). I thought that was interesting.
Comment 15 Sep 2014

Not sure why you are being downvoted. Your arguement is just or at least has some justification. In our limited sample, JT appears to be significantly better than Braxton in progression, short and intermediate throwns and leading his receivers. Has potential to be more conistant and a better game manager. However, potential is just potential until it translates consistantly onto the field. Braxton by far is more explosive, a better and more agressive runner and has a better arm. I would prefer to have Braxton right now, no doubt. But can envision JT progressing to the point where it will give the coaches second thought as to benching JT for Brax next season. I am torn if JT plays well. JT is the future and I wouldnt hate to stiffle that.

They should do what we do for our fantasy football league.

If you finish in last place you are a beer bitch for the entire draft, you must sit on a pink blanket away from the other league players and all league members are encouraged to bring demeaning donations to your blanket with the goal of shaming or embarrassing you. These include sex toys or donations of a perverted nature, clothing (usually of a demeaning nature), various liquor shots, etc. It is a good reminder to pay attention and set your line-ups, be active throughout the season and to do your best not to finish in last place.

We shouldnt be making fun of their punter. A). Its their best player, B). All hail Zolton and C). Cam Johnston hasnt exactly been catching the world on fire this year. His booming 28 yard punt this weekend makes him 2 for 4 (50%) on good to bad punts this season.

On a serious note, I wonder what is going on with Cam. Someone in another thread mentioned he hasnt been doing the running rugby style punts this season. To be honest, I havent noticed. If we punt, I am usually to busy cursing at the TV, texting my buddies or complaining on 11W live blog about the previous mistakes.

I loved the playcalling for Kent. Very open, fluid and it involved our talent and speed. Damn, it was fun to watch live.

A couple of thoughts: I think this resembles more of the offense OSU thought they would be running by now. I think Braxton struggled with these mid-range throws so they were never able to incorporate them with consistency. Then Hyde emerged and we didnt need to. I have no clue why they didnt do more of this against Navy other than the throw-away comment of a young QB starting his first game. I have no clue why they didnt even attempt some of these throws against VT. I am hoping we see more of this, but what I believe is that in close games with higher quality opponents Herman will shrink the playbook and tense up. We will resort back to our 2013 offense which we do not have the ability to run effeciently due to young players and this will slow our offense.

I am hoping I am incorrect, but history has showed us we do not open up the playbook against stiffer competition. This offense, the one we saw Saturday, should be able to score on any BIG defensive unit. Not impressed with MI, Penn State, MD, Rutgers' defense. I havent seen enough of Sparty yet, but they will be ready to go. Hopefully, JT and the O-line will continue to improve.

Cloud - great call. The team denying that throwback screen was a thing of beauty and maybe the best defensive play from snap to finish in the past three seasons. Lee also showed his speed running down the QB on a broken play roll out. Lee and Kwon flashed the entire game.

Disappointing, but becoming an accurate statement. I guess the ACC got a pass for years right? 

Comment 13 Sep 2014

At the game today, Kwon looked great. On a half dozen occasions he adjusted another LB or a DB into a seemingly better position. He moved well in pass coverage and maneuvers well through the opposing o line and most importantly wraps up his tackles. I watched him the entire game. He will be great. Needs to get reps.

Rotate Miller, Frazier and Lewis.
Comment 13 Sep 2014
Rod looks the part. Occasionally flashes the part. He is like a WWE wrestler. The ones Vince McMahon falls in love with but who never quite pan out. But who would you rather fight?. A roided up WWE wrestler or a trained MMA fighter who looks slightly less intimidating but works hard, studies hard and knows how to do more than fake punch and an occasional body slam? It seems to me you would want the guy who can really hurt you not pretend to.

Maybe my tickets are what brought Mickey Mitchell back to the good guys! 

Comment 12 Sep 2014

With our D I was worried about this game since before 5 got hurt. 

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Maybe he had some unfinished business on the inside. Do you guys not watch Sons of Anarchy or Oz? 

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Ha. Ha. My life is sad because I also fall into this category. 

Comment 12 Sep 2014

If it is Spence, like the tweet says, what a poor poor mistake. He had first round potential and probability. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts. 

Comment 12 Sep 2014

I want to see short receiver routes (slants, bubble screens, etc.) maybe some WR pick plays. Seattle ran picks and scrapes to get Harvin open last week against GB and he then would run for 15-20 yards after the catch. We have Wilson, Marshall, Dixon, Thomas who all seem capable of racking up YAC. Just got to get them the ball in space.

First hit by Head and Shoulders Boy was close, but the second call in the endzone seemed like a poor call. Hard hit to break up the pass.
