OK, good to know! Thank you very much for the info, i appreciate that!
i believe you can transfer in conference, but you are not permitted to be on scholarship at the new school.
You bring up a good point, and i was actually talking to a co-worker of mine yesterday about the playoff.
After we lost to VaTech i was finding it very hard to see any realistic possibility that we were going to make it into the playoff. After that game, every passing week i would look to see how other teams would fare and it's almost like i saw the 4 team playoff as the end to our season. For some strange reason i never even thought about actually playing the playoff games, i was just rooting for us to get there. I realize that probably sound really dumb, but i was so engrossed in making the final four that up until the last few days i didn't even think about us playing vs Bama and winning. Even now, i think this season has been one of the most memorable seasons i have been a part of and i don't want it to end. I'm sure as we get closer to the game, i will start to get even more pumped up, but for now i am just enjoying what we all just went through with this awesome group of young men.
I'm was in FL for a wedding this weekend and while wearing my OSU gear in the airport, i had 3-4 different people mention to me how pissed they are that Tim Tebow is going to be joining the coaching staff next year. I recall hearing rumors of this last year, but i haven't heard anything about this recently. Chances are these are just unfounded rumors, but i found it odd that a few different people mentioned it.
Well regardless who they take, there's a recruiting dead period starting on Monday morning, so this may put them behind the eight ball unless they move quickly!
You bring up a very good point. I hadn't really thought of that aspect of the QB position, but i suppose it can;t hurt seeing that play ABC was called against a certain type of defense. It definitely cannot hurt, so hopefully that translates onto the field for Braxton next season. I also like that Urban has the backup QB's taking simulated snaps (or whatever they call it). As excited as i am for the playoff, i think next season is going to be really fun to watch!
Just think about all the info that Collier, Luke Morgan and eventually Burrows and Gibson will be able to take in. It's not often you have 3 experienced QB's to draw that knowledge off of!
Very nice post BK!
I am pretty sure that Kyle Clinton is a SR as well. We also have a 3rd K and a P who are SR's so there are a few more roster spots. And i cannot take credit for knowing this, it was a trivia question at the bar i went to for the OSU/VT game. i'm not smart enough to know that stuff!
I'm almost positive that Hale started a game at Guard (maybe the Navy game?), but i do know for sure that he played this season in games because i completely forgot he switched to OL from DL. So to answer your question, unfortunately he would not be able to RS.
i believe Jamel Dean was working on that, along with Cornell and Nick Conner. i also recall Gibson saying he would like to, but i have no idea what the outcome of that was.
No, i haven't wrestled but i do know what you mean.i actually meant for that to be taken as we will be able to substitute more along the D line because there's more of a need to stay in your gap against a run team instead of beating the OL in 2 seconds to put pressure on the QB. Now i know the goal on every play is to beat the OL and put pressure on either the QB or RB, but against a run heavy team you can afford to have someone in there who is going to eat up space (i.e a Vincent Wilfork type) while against a spread team you would benefit more with a Noah Spence type who can get to eh QB pretty darn fast.
I explained that first post poorly. sorry for the confusion
Much has been made about our perceived lack of depth on the D-line this year, but i think we will be OK there this week. The lack of depth resulted from us playing teams that throw more and operate out of the spread offense. With those types of offense, it's imperative to get pressure on the QB and that's where some of the 2nd team lineman struggled. I would use Tommy Schutt as a great example of someone who has done well against the run but not as well against the up-tempo offensive teams. Obviously i am far from a pro at the X's and O's and all that stuff, but i really think the 2nd team DL will contribute nicely this week. Hell, maybe i should rephrase that to say i HOPE they play well, but we shall see in about 30 hours!
hahahahaha this comment was awesome! i completely agree with you!
I would love the Browns to pick up a good OT to move Schwartz inside to play guard and then go for either Melvin Gordon or a solid LB.
Yea that's a very good point, they very well may have peaked. It will definitely be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks with the Nebraska and Mich jobs. It's definitely going to have a major effect on the B1G conference.
i see that Ole Miss just locked up Freeze with a new contract and a raise. With the success that MSU had this season i cannot imagine them letting Mullen go. I know that he struggled in his first 2 seasons there, but this season all but guarantees he will get a decent pay raise. With the guy from colorado state rumored to be off the market, i would imagine any decent coach who is entering the last year or 2 is already hearing from the AD to get that extension,
Did Reeves play in the scUM game this past weekend? i don't recall seeing him in there but i very well could have missed it.
Do they call Kirby Smart down in Bama and offer him the job? you would have to think they are going to look at a few big names, but their fallback needs to be a big name coordinator (Smart, Narduzzi, etc.). i don't think they can afford to go the route of taking someone who coached in the MAC or a lesser conference.
How many seats are you looking for? i may have some in section 151 that you can buy, or we can trade depending where you are at if you need more than 4 together. email me at [email protected] and we can discuss it.
if you are looking for a gym with a crap ton of cardio equipment, this is a good place. Some of the newer PF locations are in great shape, but the one closest to me is a little older and there were constantly 4-5 broken machines. I was actually kicked out once for wearing a OSU beanie. They asked me to remove it, which i did, but i accidentally put it back on once i was done with the treadmill and they told me i had to leave. I seriously thought the lady was joking, but she called the police before she even told me that they were kicking me out, so as i was getting up from one of the leg machines i was greeted by her and Johnny Law. Fortunately, i knew the cop from a poker league so we had a good laugh about it. I complained to the corporate office and was given a free 30 day membership, but i haven't been back since that incident.
You should receive an email today from Ticketmaster offering you the ability to print your tickets from home since delivery is delayed. I purchased my tickets the day the went on sale and just received them a few days prior to the MSU game. If you do not have them in hand by next Tuesday the 2nd, i would contact ticketmaster directly to get the ability to print out your tickets from email. Any time you purchase the actual tickets to a game instead of the print at home or e-tickets, you still have the ability to print out a ticket from home. they offer this just in case you lose the tickets prior to the event.
Hope that helps!
i absolutely loved Malcolm Jenkins when he played here, so i have to go with him. We have bigger weaknesses than the CB position but that dude just shut people down!
