Film studies are my favorite articles to read here on 11W. Absolutely love the in depth coverage. Definitely getting my money's worth. Keep up the good work, guys! It's much appreciated!

Anyone else notice the topic and it's contents take a complete 180 as the games narrative changed?

The man is playing just fine here in the second half. He's done fine in the games prior as well. I doubt his first half struggles were solely attributable to Carroll's defending.

You mentioned that ball security and making the easy catches were your biggest proponents of Dontre's game. My biggest issue is his vision (or lack thereof).

He has a tendency while in space (easy to see in some of the punt returns) to run towards groups of 2 or 3 defenders and then relies on his exceptional spins and jukes to make up for it. I'd love to see him take the right cuts to find open space and use his blockers to do all the dirty work for him.

He's got a load of speed and breakout ability, I just think he needs a little boost to his vision and football IQ to boost his game to the next level. Hopefully we will see that in year 3.

Wow, well isn't that embarrassing.  +1 for you sir. 

I still stand by my point, however.

If not us, why not someone associated? I'd love to continue seeing MSU climb the ranks and for Wisky to recruit better nationally. Wouldn't you rather be at the top of something meaningful than be the King of some bum fuck playground.

The long ass title for "head coach" there is a testament to how far they've fallen. Absolutely laughable.

Comment 23 May 2015

I just want to see him suit up and hit the field. A healthy Brax comes first. Any position will do, IMO. I voted QB out of likelihood but my dream would be to have JT under center with Brax just off to the side playing Hybrid. It's name will likely be changed to "The Braxton Position" after the year is all said and done. Who is Percy anyways?

I agree, but if so, doesn't that instill complacency and completely ruin it for the bottom guys fighting to be "the next man up"? I like the way Urban has handled QBgedon so far.

Why so salty over the order? If it's not done alphabetically, random is much better than putting the polls in the order of the most likely. Otherwise, what's the point of a poll if it's already laid out for you/unfairly biased?

The kid sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders. I like what he brings to the table and would be happy to see him don scarlet & grey in the near future. 

Edit: I don't worry too much about all this "brand" talk. I go to work everyday and bust my ass for the hopes of a promotion one day. He just wants to go to the school that will put him in the best position he can be when he leaves/graduates. No problem with that. Get him on campus, put him through the grind, introduce him to Real Life Wednesdays. He will be just fine in time.

Or watch his brothers finish up business from the stands rather than be medevac'ed away. Nothing but respect for JT and his game. 

And speaking of the intangibles that don't show up on the stat sheet, I believe JT is the best leader we have out of the three running QBs. Something that often gets overlooked.

I know there are those of us expecting it to be competitive, but I'm not so sure. I'm expecting to see the Bucks crush VT in round 2. I mean ... C'mon .... Urban doesn't lose twice.
