20M is a hefty sum.

take half of that and upgrade your coaching staff. go out and buy a good HC and staff. pay your HC 4M smackers, and give em another 4M to build his coaching staff. the last bit can be in bonuses and the rest. poach a few of the SEC coordinators if you can.

we can't change the recruiting demographics on our own i.e. we can't make the southern kids move up north. but what we can do is (1) attract them up north with an impressive coaching staff and (2) coach up the talent we do have.

they called the screen play towards the end of the game despite Tech blitzing all night. sometimes the play just doesn't work because the qb or receiver don't connect.

some of those slant routes we ran were dropped should we have not called another? what happens to our last touch down if we stopped calling slants after the first drop?

the key is that the play WAS open so your point is irrelevant.

well yea...vast is an adjective after all

a minority that isn't vast is something like 49% vs 51%

a vast minority is something like 5% vs 95%

idk what he was saying but I think Perry, as well as Grant, needs an upgrade in his cover skills and his instincts. he is clearly bigger and faster than last year but i dont think he has 'it' yet.
 

I think the defensive play was improved. We probably should't expect a complete 180 overnight but I did like what I saw. the corners played much better but the linebackers didn't show as much improvement as the corners.

ugh I must be the only person in the room that didn't notice the play.

I must have been slumped over crying or something lol

UCF isn't a bad team. they are well coached and have a decent roster. in fact, the last time we played them, Urban said they are better at some positions than our squad.

PSU's roster isn't where it once was so I don't understand all the commotion about their close scores. many teams have struggled this year for whatever reason, and I don't see why PSU with their depleted roster should be an exception. Heck, even Tress put up bad numbers from time to time against Mac teams and his rosters weren't too shabby.

what a disappointment.

they need this game more than we do as they fade into irrelevancy.  i rather play a middle of the road SEC team.

the big ten needs to stop scheduling their program.

the only upside is we get to establish which program rules the midwest. but i suspect....every already knows it's NOT the irish.

i expected brionte dunn to crack the starting lineup. :(

i hope he gets some playing time

i'm also interested to see what happens with vonn bell and burrows. i really like both of them and i'm surprised they are listed as OR. why is armani listed for both star and corner without an OR? I would expect bell or burrows could handle that position.

bennet and schutt listed as OR is probably the most surprising.
