The H needs to have some skills as a RB and WR. He also needs to have some pass pro ability. I think EGW is going to be good as an H-B, but he may need some time. I'd like to see if EGW can handle punt returns
The 200 and 400 require some endurance also and it requires some knowing the perfect pace to run
The punt return ineffectiveness is crazy. How is it with all of these hybrid, athlete types that we cannot find someone to return punts? Last year, we had to have our most experience WR, H and TB (Samuel) do that job. I know blocking is a factor too but still. I know when Meyer first got here he was really big on punt blocks saying that a team that blocks punts has an extremely high chance of winning the game. I dunno. Just field the punt, block, and see what one of these athletes can do.
Need to burn all those pics
Noah Brown was a flexed TE for awhile. Jake Stoneburner played that role here and in the NFL. I believe that Noah Brown got a little bit of time at H-B in '14, but it was mostly due to the coaches wanting some extra blocking on the perimeter
- I do kind of like the idea of running up tempo on some of the weaker teams on the schedule just to get some extra practice time.
- I like the combo of Leak and Tebow back in the day but I don't see anything right now.
- BTW, I think one of the reason we didn't run up tempo in '16 was b/c the strength of the team was the defense
Yeah. That is true.
Watch Antoine Winfield against the run.
It could hurt against jump balls though
I think size is a big reason why Meyer likes to rotate guys at the H-B. He didn't have to do that much with Samuel, but he did in 14
The good new is that our DBs have better hands than our WRs, so Zone 6 has a guy that can catch the ball now
I like it.
Going off on a little bit of a tangent, but with all these athletes, someone should learn how to field punts. They'll see more playing time if they do.
Percy Harvin would not look the same in 2016 as he did back in the day. I am not slamming or putting down Harvin, but defense have evolved.
I'd like to see Campbell move to the H-B permanently and maybe McLaurin. In 14', Marshall and Wilson rotated and other guys got some reps there. I think that is more ideal nowadays.
Yeah, OSU did beat Oklahoma pretty easily. I can understand being ranked #5......but whatever
A young offense gets worse as the season progresses??!? If the team was going to shit the bed, it should have happened against OKlahoma.
I can't believe this. I thought they should attack the perimeter but this was crazy
8 yards rushing? Unbelievable
Even their 1 tech DT makes plays. Extremely impressed with their DL. It seems like they blitz their LBs just so they will occupy a blocker a forcing more one on one blocing on their DLmen especially since their LBs are not that good in pass coverage.
Get Samuel the ball at least 20 times especially on the perimeter. Explosive players can make an high risk Cover 0 or Cover 1 pay. Clemson's defense is not very good defending the flats also.
