PS can you believe he's going to be a senior this year?! Time flies.
Are we completely ruling out Ryan Timmons?
I think McCaffrey will have a great year but unsure if he can replicate last year until Isee how their new QB is. Hogan was a 3.5 year starter for them after Luck and was pretty good. I know they have some good recruits at the QB position though.
Agreed it'll be hard for anyone to pass Watson if he leads them into the Playoffs again and if he puts up similar or better numbers than he did last year (4100+ passing yards, 35 TDs with a completion percentage of 68% all the while adding another 1100+ rushing and 12 more TDs. Pretty beastly numbers right there.
Like I said in the other post, the only reason why this is a big deal is because the Cowboys are facing a league fine for having multiple players suspended for violating the league substance abuse policy (Starting DEs Gregory, Lawrence and starting LB McClain) maybe another player too. So even as harmless as it was its still a problem given the Cowboys current situation but even that, EZE has that on going investigation going on so news like this is what you want to stay clear of given all the mess that's going on around and with him.
The main point is the Cowboys already have multiple players suspended for violating the league substance abuse policy and the fact that EZE is involved in an on going domestic violence case.. It's not a good look one way or another. Even if he was a beloved Buckeye you gotta be smarter about what your do in the NFL especially given the stuff he's currently dealing with off the field.
It probably wouldn't have been a big deal if the Cowboys didn't already have players in trouble for it and facing a league fine for it and the whole Zeke situation off field currently underway. I personally don't have a problem, I would've bought the store out but he should know better than to do that with all that's currently going on around him, before a game and his 1st game at that.
With that being said he looks great for my Cowboys. May wanna start making some people miss eventually as trying to run through peeps will wear on him over the year but great debut. He's gonna eat behind that line.
Yeah but you aren't in the NFL where image is everything and the Cowboys already have 3 players suspended for either PEDs or smoking trees. Can't risk that with your #4 pick who also happens to be involved in an on-going domestic violence case (although she was lying it appears). Just something you don't do, especially before a game and your first one at that.
Too bad kickoff is the same time as tOSU game.
As a Cowboys fan.. me likey :D. Shit, Dak lookin' like the steal of the draft especially within the QBs selected. Still early but that could be a dangerous duo for years to come.
Cooper did coach ASU to a Rose Bowl victory over UM in his last season as coach before taking tOSU job. Too bad the wins over UM didn't follow.
Used to root for Tennessee back in the day when Jamal Lewis was there...but I've always rooted for Clemson (Liked them since Woody Dantzler was QB) and Oklahoma. I did enjoy watching USC play during the Carrol era. His enthusiasm and fun loving attitude on the sidelines always made me a fan of his plus all their stacked teams made them fun to watch especially Reggie Bush
And of course my UNI Panthers.
Agreed but one correction -- Tress had 3 12+ win seasons. (Yes I'm including the vacated, Sugar Bowl victory season of 2010 :D)
UM shouldn't be considered a blue blood program anymore. Haven't won any championships outright since the 1940s and most of their championships came under Yost way back at the beginning of the 1900s when there weren't many football teams to begin with and college football itself was just getting started... I mean, one of the years they went 5-0 and were awarded the National Championship... the incoming freshman class up there weren't even alive when UM last "won" a title in which they split by votes rather than playing it out on the field.
What's crazy to me is that UM has exactly 2 seasons in their history in which they've won at least 12 games in a season (never more than 12). Lloyd Carr had one of those seasons damn near 20 years ago and the other you'd have to travel back to 1905 under Yost. Urban's been here now going into his 5th season as HC and has 4 12+-win seasons already under his belt so far.
Pretty sure Sheffield transferred or is the process of transferring from Bama so there goes one of their 5*s from '15
I haven't seen Brown drop a pass either but he has 1 career reception and can't really remember if he ever got more than 1 throw his way. Besides that catch and the bad play call to give him the ball on an end around on 3rd and short vs Bama I can't really remember him getting the rock at all. I'm not gonna get my hopes up for some monster season from him but who knows.
The Boys could very well have a Buckeye 1-2 punch in the backfield as Rod
Jones Smith is making the switch from RB to FB. Would be pretty sick. Side note, Dak has looked great. Better than any of the Cowboys back ups who've been thrown in to play the last couple of years albeit preseason.
Especially all them UM fans talking shit about Urban over that issue, which was the right call all along which we knew yet they still praise and are okay with Hairball accepting commits from recruits only to pull the rug out from underneath them 2 weeks before signing day for "better" prospects. The delusion is real.
Wasn't it his knee in the first place? Pretty sure he tore his ACL twice in HS/AllStar game competition before even coming to college. That's too bad for him but proves why he wasn't cleared at the OSU and not a "scholarship casualty." Hopefully he can recover from this and salvage some sort of football career, at the very least get his degree.
3 more weeks fellas!! Gonna feel like ages but the season is finally upon us!!!!
I hope that guy wasn't serious. For as much as UM fans like to pound their chest about being academically superior than most teams... It sure doesn't translate to football knowledge.
Speaking of 50... He sure fell off the map quick.
Same with Harbaugh vs tOSU... If we're taking about shit.
