Did I miss the memo where KJ Hill was moved to H-back? Or am I reading the depth chart wrong?
Don't worry, you'll only lose by 52 points.
I think this article is a day early.
Great article and a great read. For the VT fans, take a look at this article from an Oregon blogger (same article referenced above). It describes the counter trey play that we literally used for an entire drive to score on Oregon in the game (I believe we ran it every play on that drive). I know the Oregon 3-4 bear looks different than VT's 3-4 bear, but from the looks of things, it matches up great against the defense. Have the o-line down block, pull the backside tackle and TE to kick out the linebacker and end. Hold the safety with the threat of Braxton running a sweep the other way. You're left with maybe one defender between Elliot and a touchdown (if the other safety stays with the QB or not). I'd take that match up all day long.
Also in the videos in the article, you can really see the growth in the oline. Even if you throw out schemes, they were getting pushed around and losing their one-on-one matchups. Any scheme looks great in that instance. I wouldn't count on that consistently happening again.
For the first time ever, I'm going to say ... "Is it Monday yet?"
It doesn't matter if the QB isn't a threat to throw the football because a QB run has an inherent numbers advantage for the offense.
To me, the biggest difference between Noah Brown and the rest of the WRs that we have is that Noah Brown was bigger and a more effective blocker, in the Evan Spencer mold. I thought it would make more sense for us to slot in AJ Alexander into the Evan Spencer role instead of, say, Johnny Dixon.
Was that before or after Noah Brown's injury?
These injuries happen everywhere in all levels of football. It sucks, but injuries happen. Luckily, this team will rally around Noah Brown and make sure that he does what he needs to do to recover and come back stronger than ever.
I look forward to watching him next year (if it's that serious).
Sorry. I did a few searches for SI article, but it's hard to search the forums when you have no idea what people will title the thread as. I'll browse a bit more carefully next time.
A "better" ball probably gets broken up because his hand is right in Brown's chest. Sometimes, you just tip your hat to the WR for making a great play, and a finger tip, one handed, over the shoulder catch is one of them.
So they don't grab and hold receivers in practice.
This won't happen but imagine Bud Foster's face when he sees Braxton taking the first snap. It'd be a picture of "Well, shit."
But if it's your cousin, why would you need a website to connect?
You didn't let him finish. He was going to say "will enter Ohio State game with just one loss of less than 10 points."
If there are 4 episodes, and there's 1 a week, then we'll have an episode after the season starts? That seems poorly planned, unless I've missed something...
(Zeke) told me that I'll be successful if I just buy into the plan.
It's a sign of GREAT coaching when the players talk like the coaches. You know everyone has bought in to the message.
Why does he keep pulling his hamstrings? It is something about his build (uneven strength in quads and hamstrings?), poor stretching habits, or just bad luck? I hope the medical staff can figure it out because he can do great things if he can get on the field.
I'm hopeful that the GIFs of Jones shows how coachable he is. In the Bama game, he runs around the DEs. In the Oregon game, he calmly steps up in the pocket.
In my uneducated opinion, you start Jones and bring Barrett in on certain situations like short yardage, goal-line, etc. There, the option game can really be maximized to get a few yards, because the numbers work out better when running the ball. Otherwise, I think you rely on the Slobs and Zeke to control the running game and let Jones keep the defenses honest with his arm. Just because Jones is bigger than Barrett doesn't make him the better short yardage guy.
Did you say that before he decommitted?
Love seeing Nuge in the top 25.
And holy crap have times changed. Nuge made 30 extra points in 2004. Sean Nuernberger made 89 in 2014.
Mmm, that does look like crab meant.
On a significantly more relevant topic, are there long-term effects for taking out sections of the meniscus? Or is the decision more about which method would best fix the problem?
His potential out wide makes me giddy. Time to find a surgeon to put me into a coma for 2 weeks...
