Aren't TEs rarely used as the primary receiver?  I think this is one of the reasons why you see the TEs making more catches in the pros, b/c the pro QBs are better at checking off to their secondary receiver.

Meyer has said that Wilson is a natural slot receiver and Samuel is a natural TB.  He is moving some people around, because he is trying to get Samuel out on the field more. 

Philly Brown moved back and forth between flanker and the H position.  I think that will be the role Marshall plays this year.

Also, put Jalin Marshall in the Wildcat to mix it up a little bit

Meyer called Curtis Samuel "a top-5 playmaker" right now for Ohio State: "The days of him playing 10 plays a game are over." He also said the Buckeyes had 10 playmakers last season on offense, but are still trying to determine who will be the playmakers this year.

Meyer said Bri'onte Dunn has a little momentum in his life right now and it's showing up on the field.

Meyer just wants to get him out on the field more.  Also, like others have alluded to, guys that can you can motion back and forth between WR and RB give D-Coordinators fits

??  I said that Herman thought JT was a better leader at that time

Comment 28 Mar 2015

Wasn't that mostly due to maturity issues?  I think Herman liked the fact that JT was a better leader at that time.

Jones throws the best deep ball.  I think that running the inverted veer with Elliot or Samuels brings the most when it comes to power inside and speed to the outside.  Naturally, Jones forces a defense to cover the whole field like no other.

Most of the people working at ESPN know less about sports than your average, casual fan

The Diamond is not as creative as a lot of people think.  It is pretty limited and telegraphs what you are going to do more than our base offense.  You basically have a Y or Fullback/TE, a TB behind the QB, and an H.  The bread and butter play of any option offense is the triple option.  Most of the time, the TB will be the dive read and the H will be the pitch read.  How we use the Y in our base offense allows him to do more things than it would in the diamond.  The same goes for the H.  In the passing game, the Y and H are limited to, for the most part, just running out in the flats.  Our base offense is way more creative with the H. 

 The playbook can only be so big in college

One of the plays that has almost replaced the triple option is the dive/screen read.  The dive screen read attacks the perimeter faster than a QB pulling it and running it outside for the pitch read.  Here you see two scum defenders bite inside, so Braxton throws a screen.

Are they going to have a million farewell tours?  I almost went to one of their concerts a year or two ago.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

I predict minor tweaks here and there.  That's about it--X's and O's-wise.  I think Miller will take over Jalin Marshall's role in the Wildcat.  I think you at least give Miller a 10-15 play package  per game.  Lining Braxton up at the H a few times a game would give D-Coordinators nightmares w/ the possibilities.   Some window dressing, but that is about it

Comment 26 Mar 2015

I think, if we were going to see the diamond, we would have seen it in Meyer's first or second year, since we did not have a real  H-WR and it would have given a younger Braxton easier reads.  Plus, defense were putting both safeties in the box a lot of the time anyways.

If the Eagles just signed Murray, Chip Kelly made a smart move.   He still has a running game and got an excellent LB w/ the McCoy trade. 

Comment 11 Mar 2015

I agree with B.A. when it comes to the McCoy for Alonso trade.

I really doubt he is giving up on his system.  Kelly tweaked his offense for the NFL and it has been working.

I really do not understand the Foles for Bradford trade.  I can understand, if he trades Foles to get into better position to get Mariotta.  For Bradford, I don't know.  Kelly has Sanchez to run the offense for now and bringing in Mariotta for the future would make sense.  I don't understand bringing Bradford into the mix.  That has to take up some salary cap space also.

You're still talking about a difference in relative strength (girl push ups vs regular push ups) and the guy would pretty much having a slight advantage in every other physical attribute that there is out there.  One of the small differences between Judo and BJJ--it is basically different interpretations of the same art--is that Judo takes a little bit more strength than BJJ.  Judo also gives Rousey a pretty big advantage over other women, because there is a little bit of a surprise element with Judo in MMA.
