This makes it easier to see how there could've been communication problems in the secondary like Coombs has said. It sounds like that the first go around of trying to teach the cover 4 wasn't a complete success and left some question marks among the players. Add that to having two different coaches teaching it, and I can see where problems could arise. I feel confident that Ash, who literally wrote a manual on how to play this defense, can get the message through to our guys and we can see a better version of the silver bullets this fall!
I have a friend who plays on the winning team, Catholic Central, and I remember him telling me about how Jayru tried to get at one of his teammate's during the handshake line. I didn't know that soon after he threw a tantrum you'd expect to see from a toddler. Not a good look whatsoever.
Living in the metro-Detroit area, I have some friends to tease tomorrow morning.
Granted Messi is the LeBron James equivalent in soccer, but if I were Barcelona, I would find it really hard to turn down an offer like this. Is this a possible transfer window for the summer? I'm fairly sure you can only transfer during the summer as well as the month of January.
Quite honestly I love this type of stuff. Benefits the rivalry!
Tough luck there. While he may miss out on spring reps, at least he isn't out too long!
Damn, this kid looks good!
As much as we NEED a big man like Turner, I just don't see it happening. But please, Thad, do everything in your power to hold onto the two Ohio boys, Kennard and Bragg!!!
What's up with Apple? Really thought he had a very bright future. Same with Johnson. Makes losing Mitchell that much harder. Hopefully the three backers coming in in August and tear it up. On the other hand, Tyvis Powell looks massive! Did they ever think at bulking him up and moving him to linebacker? Not that I would want them to with the state of our secondary anyway.
Looks like Underwood, Baldwin, and Boren were getting reps with Elflein and Decker.
Boy do I love buckeye football. Tracy looks like he's breaking out the salsa in photo 94.
How many years of eligibility does Greene have left?
I'd love to see what Ash can do with the secondary aw well as how the receiving corps is gonna look.
I also love how evident it is in his highlight video that he has great vision and patience and doesn't just relay on pure speed even though he's quite a burner!
Didn't think we were ever truly in the running before the visit but now I feel like we're right in the mix!
Liam is a 2015 kid whereas Sam will be playing this fall so I don't think he's out.
Any chance that Tate may redshirt his first year with the recent injury or is he expected to make a recovery in time?
Seems like a pretty solid lineup for next year. I think Russell has a legitimate shot at the starting rotation and I think it would be a wise career decision for Q to come back for one more year. It will be nice to have some shooters in Williams and Russell and hopefully Shannon works on his jumpshot in the offseason. Does anybody think there's a chance Myles Turner chooses the Buckeyes?
With such a small senior class this year, how many commits do you think we take in 2015?
I was thinking the same thing about lowering the helmet but I wouldn't be too concerned. When he gets to Columbus, the staff is gonna discipline him, I'm sure. They don't want guys on the field that are gonna be drawing flags left and right. Especially with the new targeting rules.
Damn this kid hits hard! Not half bad in coverage either. Hopefully he can learn to wrap up and not draw so many flags from malicious hits. Really don't like seeing that.
Four blocks?? Where was this defensive prowess when he was in S&G? I kid, great to see the big guy having success in the association!
No what I meant was that we knew people would have to leave, transfer, etc. to meet the scholarship numbers, but to see someone like Mike, who plays a position of need and was so highly rated, be one of the ones to go is unfortunate and he will be sorely missed.
As much as I'd love to see him in scarlet and gray, he deserves to go to school where he wants to go school. Really feel bad for the kid.
Honestly my favorite Wilson highlight was the brawl with TTUN. Nice to see a kid from Texas getting into the rivalry like that!
