i canrlt wait defensive line has always been a favorite of mine to watch theyre the ones i believe make the biggest difference on the game and with all these players rotating it will allow us to see the emergence of a full unit and give the younger guys a chance to get real in game experience guys like Munger, Hill and Jaylyn Holmes will all get much needed attention. who knows maybe there will be a Bosa esq performance from one of these younger guys, also its about time Schutt gets attention he was a guy i like from the get-go but has been over shadowed. "We dont rebuild we reload" yeah and this is one hell of a way to start the reload nice and easy learning from the best playing against the best competing with the best... CANT WAIT!!!!
the power ryn game is our bread and butter yeah, but thats not a secret if we dont start passing and showing we can execute more than 2 route patterns teams will gun for that running play and then what? the spread is used to spread the field get recievers open and to make the defense adjust continuously. By passing more early in games and executing on more than just screen patterns the field starts to spread, the defense must then adjust to the passing game if they cant make the right adjustments we must be able to execute different routes to keep the defense miserable, tired and guessing then once theyre starting to focus on dropping thd LB's into coverage you hit them with the power run game. Play Action also needs to be utilized more on various routes if we do decide to come out the gate running and they start to hone in on the running game, we dont have the same run blocking o-line we did last year everybody and their momma knew we were gonna run it but the oline was good enough to handle it, by making the defense guess you take some pressure off of that o-line and you allow the playmakers we been recruiting to do what we brought them here to do which is make plays. We were a good offense last year and a good offense doesnt become great by sitting around doing the same stuff over and over because the teams that do their homework will see we run the same plays over and over and they will hone in on that if we want a NC its time to expand our playcalling and hit em where it hurts bcuz come playoff time running the ball 60 times wont get us very far, teams are to good for us to stay complacent we have the pieces use them. TE's in the middle of the field make thr safties play up which opens up the deep ball which is where we will kill teams. now isnt the time to be complacent
this doesnt speak much about JT. im bot worried about his progression just yet RS FR. plus injured that whole time wasnt he? Next year someone must step up if we want to think to talk about getting near a NC. but we still have a long ways to go until we need to start worrying about after Braxton for now Congrats to Cardale Jones work to keep that spot youngin
i think we should have something like the B1G ACC challenge (basketball) and do somthing like that with SEC just for first week or 2 every year or every other year for just a few seasons though all the top teams at Neutral sites while the mid level teams get home and home schedules.
OSU vs. Bama at Jerrys World
scUM vs. AU at RAVENS Stadium
MSU vs. LSU at Titans Stadium
being the 3 main games and just mix it up for 3 years allow the teams to go head to head and then crown the king
its good for thr big ten that they have success they had a great year last year and they played their hearts out and worked hard for every win who are we to say anything negative about it? we just to work hard, play our guts out every play and hope the rest of the B1G follows suit ii look forward to our game with em it will be good hopefully
i want 60-40 pass vs run!!! not 60-40 run vs pass!!! were gonna have to be a passing team at some point right!? think about all the outside playmakers we now have. and the playmaking fast guys were still recruiting we cant be recruiting all these fast guys just so that we can have Braxton running the option read and run play 80% of the time lets open up this playbook and make our throws!! if i see the same old stuff from last year (yes i know it was a record breaking offense) im going to scream! if you really think about it half our throws were screens to philly and hyde with the occasional deep ball to smith. i just wanna see us open up the playbook and go with the 10-20 yard passes downfield and allow our recievers use their speed we keep hearing about and make plays!!! but be real how much better do u think our offense could have been if we ran the slant game a little more and HIT OUR TE'S alot more? we got the talent there and running the same 3 plays all game wont do anything but hold our guys back now LETS GO BUCKS IM SOOO PUMPED FOR THE START OF THE SEASON!!!!!
that picture has been the background to my phone since right after the game ended!
you see 5% Fat there? that dude is RIPPED!!!! lol think of all the jokes that we can come up with when X-Brax breaks his ankles in the open field or EZE going all purdue on him only this time EZE will be crossing the goal line afterwards!!!
I dont mind her comments but to say The Game isnt as intense as a common regular season SEC game is insane its thr most heated rivalry in all sports. Now there is a difference between Passionate and downright nutty! i remember seeing a story last year about a guy shooting into a group of kids bcuz they like Auburn. now thats not passion thats straight jacket CRAZY. Now when it comes to us and ichigan nothing compares like i tell everyone around me ill fight a ichigan fan just for fun but i aint got a problem buying him a beer for his broken nose and 3 for the ass whoopin OSU puts on his team. thats the difference between passion and crazy
well they aint lyin im aure alot of us became frustrated/annoyed with the TG drama
i welcome the safety/nickel trio of Bell Burrows and Smith, Smith seems to have that ball hawking ability, i cant speak for Burrows speed but his size is monsterous and Bell seems to be on track for the next Big thing. He played great in that bowl game given the circumstances. also dont sleep on Webb and Latimore making a splash early on that depth chart.
JUST BRING BACK MY NCAA FOOTBALL GAME DAMN IT! I CANT BELIEVE TSUN IS THE ON THE COVER OF THE LAST ONE!!! also that should be noted to recruits... "TSUN thr only school where franchises die as much as players careers"
No Damien Harris? Nick Bosa? or Sweat?
Dion will be traded, he cant get with being Robbin to Kyrie's Batman, how is he going to be in the locker room being the third option? or 4th option behind KLove LBJ and Kyrie? hes already stated on Twitter he refuses to come off the Bench so id wait till deadline and try to sell Waiters to Wolves before i give up Wiggy. Also ive been more impressed with Bennet in Summer League than Wiggy. Bennet kinda reminds me of a bigger Antwan Jamison and i think he will be a huge asset for us in the future off the bench behind 2T. Were starting to add vets to this team and it could be a great mix of young and old. Mike Miller, James Jones possibly Ray Allen... were slowly turning into the Miami Heat and we know how that worked out... i just hope we dont have to keep rotating bandwagon players every year ive always been a huge fan of the way the Spurs are run... they have their stars but arent shy of adding the young talent in the draft or FA and they keep the team together. Thats the way id hope the Cavs ebd up doing this... A Dynasty... not rent-a-player
im intrigued with craft coming off our bench but If you watched the Cavs game yeaterday Will Cherry deserves a spot on the team or atleast somewhere in NBA
and a 2 finger salute to the crowd
im not worried about Love, we could get him next year via FA, but would we have enough Cap to sign Waiters and Thompson to extensions as well? the scenerio i see playing out is if we trade for Love we will be giving up whats left of our depth, yeah you can add Mike Miller and Ray Allen but then what? your already out Jarrett Jack (back up PG) and Tyler Zeller (starting Center) now were trying to trade our James Harden like 6th man and another back up rotation guy in Anthany Bennett who was a #1 pick with tons of potential (heard he slimmed down and is more athletic and stronger now) so he could be a big piece off the bench. you get rid of those 2 guys and were in the same boat as Miami was last year a good starting 5 with old ring chasers coming off the bench to just do nothing... you can say definitively that Depth was an issue back in 2008-2010 when were contending and definitely say Miami lost in finals due to depth problems last year, we dont need thos problems again... stay on the path we are on we built a core now keep the core together adding LBJ is great but you cant trade everything you have to please him right away we cant afford to and he said it himself in his letter "we wont win championships right away" "im going to be an old head im going to mentor these younger players" OBVIIOUSLY the guy knows what he was doing when he chose Cleveland and obviously he likes the players already here. alow him to hrlp this team grow dont kill everything weve done so far bcuz essentially your setting yourself up for failure in the long run... keeping Waiters and Bennett is crucial it allows for scoring off the bench and Bennett could essentially allow Jamed to rest
i always see it this way
1. Hate ichigan but respect and appreciate ichigan w/O that great rivalry the tradition wouldnt be as great as it is now for us.there would not be a woody 10 year war and the B1G wouldnt have been precieved as thr best conference (before we lost to florida which is when the SEC "took over") Woody hated ichigan but respected Bo. And when it comes down to it OSU cant live in the B1G w/o ichigan being a top team simply bcuz without that rivalry being at the top OSU will always be considered good team in bad conference and gets hammered for it national media wise, but when ichigan is on top ala 2002? when it was ichigan 1 OSU #2 It was dubbed game of the century. When ichigan is on top thats what we get. and thats what we need.
though i do remember b4 last years "GAME" espns poll showed that the college world has not forgotten the rivalry when 70% of voters voted "The Game" as best rivalry in all of sports beating Lakers Celtics and Yankess BoSox
all you gotta do is look at the last 2 drafts. Dion Waiters was outta shape for his workout, AB was out of shape and overweight for his workout. and now Parker is out of shape and over weight... THANK GOD we gotta new GM this year or else we would get the first overweight outta shape guy that walks through the gym doors
Wiggins is a lockdown defender who will be able to play off the ball bcuz early on he will be forced too. His Offensive side is better than craft and has the size advantage going up against 2's draft craft 2nd round and allow him to come off the bench and gain expirience in D League
Your good with your money and cap analysis I wouldn't let Andy go unless thereß a good sign Bennett is 1000xs better than last year also Craft will never play the 2 or be a starter in the NBA hes an energetic defensive player off the bench which isn't a slight against Craft but true and its not a bad thing. Secondly With embiids surgery he isn't not worth taking that early and if Lebron comes back there's no need for Parker either Wiggins can make the case to play the 2 spot early on bcuz of his defense and his ability to get to the rim. But id rather have Irving and Lebron being my guys to get to the hole and would rather have a spot up shooter at the 2 spot so for me Wiggy is out as well making me lean more toward the Jazz trade where
Jazz get: #1 pick and Jarrett Jack
Cavs get: Alec Burks, Derrick Favors and #5 pick
THANK YOU!!!! Finally something about this guy! I've been kinda on the iffy side for the cavs hiring him but now I'm a little more confident in him, his talk of teamwork and leading, its what the cavs need most. They don't play as a team, they have no leaders do hopefully this guy instills it in these players.
I have yet to be "impressed" with Braxton on the level of most people on here TP I always trusted to get the first down either leg or arm he was a QB I liked a lot, braxton on the other hand I close my eyes when ever he scrambles now bcuz I'm waiting for another injury. I also think TP would have got the crutial first against MSU this year bcuz he had the power to extend. I'm not bashing Braxton, I thinks hes been great but yet to win a bowl game, lost in B1G championship he has yet to win that clutch game at the end. Hes gotta step up this year
I'm from Geneva, Its right next to Urban Meters Ashtabula and not to far from CLE and I hate it when people smash on that City their really are a lot of great people in that city and the sports fans their are unbelievable if your teams lose year in and year out and still have the whole city going for you its unreal, yeah the economy their has taken its toll but money don't make a city
We take as much as possible!! Bennett, Spence, Washington, Miller gone after this season potentially, Bosa next year. You need to keep adding top end talent and establish depth this year. Take as much this year take Nick Boss next year then u can slow down on D line recruiting
