Thermal blankets is a great suggestion and I'll give it a try this weekend with some ribs I'm gonna try.  Not supposed to be out of the 30s so I'll need it although keeping my smoke going is generally more of an issue than heat for my electric.

Comment 30 Jan 2017

I love some good Q and my lovely wife decided to buy me a cheap electric box smoker a little over a year ago.  It's alright but not even close to PGs and decent barrel smokers.  I'm new at the game and did my first brisket for New Year's.  Chicken and pork loins are pretty much my go to meats right now.

Adrian Peterson is an all time great.  He was coming out of HS, at Oklahoma, and now in Minnesota.  HOF type player easily. 

I hope Wilson coaches Weber up on not going down so easily with shoe string tackles.  Get those feet up!  I'm looking forward to his improvement and growth as he continues in the program.  For a first year guy I'd say he did pretty dang good.

Exactly what I've been saying all along with Wilson.  He is the only 1 tech guy we are recruiting and only have one on the roster with Hill.  If Wilson decided to join the good guys he would most definitely see significant playing time in 2017.

There is a huge difference between Lattimore and Hooker due to the position they play.  Historically safeties are drafted lots lower than corners, especially elite corners.  I was almost surprised to not see Conley in the first round somewhere.  I'm not real sure how deep the CB class is this year but Conley will have a nice NFL career as well.

Love McMillan but he won't stay on the field for 3 downs with today's wide open NFL offenses.  This diminishes his value quite a bit in my opinion.  I can still see him be a top half of round 2 guy, which is pretty dang good still.

Cage and Garrett are 3 technique guys right now.  Wilson and probably Tufele are more 1 technique who need to be double teamed.  Really Wilson out of the bunch is the only true 1 tech DT but they are all highly rated for a reason.

Interesting article on the two Boiler QBs for 2017.  Alstott is not like his pops though.  The bruising RB that Mike was sounds like was not quite handed down to his son who is a DT QB.  Sipe also had some very impressive numbers so it will be interesting to see how Brohm utilizes these young talents moving forward.

Comment 16 Jan 2017

Good take and I echo this sentiment.  Meyers while physically being a beast will have to hone his technique a lot if he wants to play on the edge at OT.  Wyatt Davis, another man child, looks like he is ready to beat some folks down and may be ready to hold his own against men in the B1G next season, although he will have to prove his worth in the off season and in the OL room.  Davis could provide good depth and not redshirt, while I believe that Meyers will definitely redshirt.

I agree 100% they didn't feed him enough.  Turned the game over to their true freshman and lost to a great Clemson defense.  Hell even if they would have run Hurts more I believe they may have won, not that I wanted Bama and little man to win another one.

Clemson will present a great challenge with Watson and all the weapons around him. I feel like we haven't faced an offense with so many threats like this yet. Oklahoma was good, but really it was all Mayfield, Westbrook, and the RB combo.  Clemson has a 1K yard rusher (Gallman) and receiver (Williams), a stud TE (Leggett), and 4 other WR's that average out at 500yds rec for a combined 20TD's.  That's outstanding supplementary production which we haven't seen the likes of. Their ability to rotate guys in outside at receiver scares me a little. Between Cain, Scott, McCloud and Renfrow there is little to no drop off.

As great as Williams and Leggett are I am most concerned with the other inside receivers.  Webb, Arnette, and Ward have not shown to be consistently great in coverage.  Get pressure and hit Watson without letting him leak out for long runs will help.

Comment 19 Dec 2016

I think McCall takes over as somewhat of a Curtis Samuel replacement.  Super shifty but tiny.  Hit the weight room son!

I like Victor and Mack to show up big time next season.

Comment 07 Dec 2016

Love the red bull toten, high intensity, great character, and man that is coach Coombs but I don't think Urban would make him the DC at The Ohio State University.

I personally hope no one leaves but success breeds success.  Go get paid Fick.

Here's the problem with losing to these types of teams, they are exactly why you get left out of the big dance come tourney time.  This can not happen anymore, period.  A week ago there were some radio pundits stating that OSU would be as high as a 6-7 seed.  They played good ball against a good Virginia squad but lost a close one.  Now two bad games and 1-1 over the past 2.  Not good.
