We already knew they're not complete idiots.
I'd argue Oregon overachieved. Lack of history and lack of in-state talent are huge hurdles to overcome. They've only been remotely close because of a ton of money from Nike and Chip Kelly. And now they are coming back down to reality.
Condolences to Russell and his family, but aren't the Lakers trying to lose every game?
Duke and Kansas. Also blue.
If you can't teach speed, why do we have track coaches? And why do people train specifically for the 40-yard dash for the combine? It's because you actually can teach speed.
What you can't teach though, is long arms as mentioned in the post above you.
I don't know a lick of Arabic, but those two words do not very similar to me.
Seems Dontre's broken foot definitely has some lingering effects.
I'd be curious what the numbers are on Elflein in the two photos. As someone pointed out last time, they don't look that different other than a little tanner and sucking in his gut a bit in the second photo. Chin/neck look about the same; area near armpit/pec looks about the same; love handles look about the same; etc. But I also wouldn't expect a ton of change in 6 weeks as that is not a large amount of time especially dealing with a highly trained athlete.
In defense of AD's dad, the Vikings offensive line was one of the worst in the league.
As for tempo, the only reason I could ever think of while watching the games is they trusted JT enough to make pre-snap adjustments. Which I think he very often made proper reads, but then the execution was lacking. So in that, just go tempo as it's been deadly for us.
Except we didn't run much zone read against those last three teams in 2014, hence the comment.
Well said Andy. That was truly one of the most ignorant comments I've seen on 11W. And given this website, that's saying something.
Is that basketball for Spain, France, and Italy? If so, I'm calling "bullshit".
Several. But mostly basketball.
My day would have been totally ok without seeing that.
Anybody know the law on this? Do the players have to consent to the use of their likeness or just the NFLPA?
I guess if PI is not called as much, DBs can play a lot more aggressively, hold, etc. If it is called tighter, they have to back off the receivers allowing QBs to complete more passes.
Average o line when Tarkenton played - 6'3" 250
Average o line today - 6'5" 315
If Minny is Iowa, then who is Iowa supposed to be?
I have a hard time believing outside of a scandal or violation, Urban would fire an assistant after 1 year.
Mildly disappointed i had to scroll this far down to see this.
I feel like that Carlos Hyde guy may be a pretty good running back.
Except 1 dropped pass on the opening drive shouldn't equal only 1 carry for your RB in the entire first half.
Now once he started fumbling in the second half, that's a different story and typical coach move.
I'm pretty sure a large number of current NFL quarterbacks have a body that look like that.
There may be a slight talent gap between us and 95% of those teams we've beaten. The Jimmys and Joes thing. My high school could have a perfect game plan against the Patriots, but it would matter very little. But another team on equal footing of the Patriots executing that same game plan would have a very different outcome.
Yeah it's the same thing our own fans say.
The scenario was a hypothetical. 3 points was an example. Maybe it's 1. Maybe it's 0.5. But it is skewed.
They most certainly are skewed so that they can make that money you're talking about. If they look at the metrics they normally use to set lines and determine Clemson and Ohio State would be even, they will then move it to Ohio State -3 knowing the Ohio State fanbase will still bet it to a bet distribution that they want. If they left it at even, too much money would come in on Ohio State.
