Thanks for clarification. And I do agree, if it were enforceable. Nothing different really than in-game adjustments. You see what the opponent is doing and counter it.
I cant say I watched the game but looking at the facts: 3 missed field goals and I think 7 times being in auburn territory and only 14 points to show?
Quit whining about what Auburn did and own up to the fact that you couldnt finish drives or make kicks.
There's no way to differentiate that though. They're all on headsets. One guy looks down from the box, tells a coach on headset. Coach on headset later says, "yeah i saw it from field level." I doubt you can record the communications through headsets.
Uhh, for 90% of coaches, this isnt even a question. One Brady Hoke though isnt affected by weather so he came north.
Why would most people want to coach at michigan when florida is in the south, in a hotbed of football talent?
Gotta go with Ginn. A game changer in more than one way, and I honestly think that's a completely different championship game with him out there. Maybe they wouldn't have won, but it would have been a whole lot closer.
Plus, the number of players his dad's program has put into the scarlet and gray, have to believe the whole family are buckeyes thru and thru.
I honestly kinda think Dontre is being left behind with all the guys urban ha brought in. It's not about potential any more. You either put up numbers or get pushed aside in an offense where there isn't enough football to go around and I think Dontre just continues to be a lot of potential.
Just my armchair's view opinion though.
As glad as I was to see the playcalling against Kent, I was equally mad/frustrated about it because it was what should have been done the week before.
Regardless, a great step in the right direction for both the coaches and players and hopefully they'll build on that going forward.
The KSU game was what I expected them to do from the very first snap against Navy.
The polls mean even less this year. 13 people will decide who the best teams in college football after every game has been played.
I continue to be amazed with the "hackenberg looked great comments." He's thrown an int every game this year and has pulled out 3 squeakers. I know, it's better than being 2-1, but continuing to throw ints every game isn't great.
I understand Barrett has too, but not many are claiming him to be a great qb yet.
A sign? Watching the game it's obvious he does a great job of reading the defense and going thru progressions.
He made all kinds of plays and on the field is outplaying grant. He should be starting.
I was taught by my dad, who has never been paid to coach football, to catch with your hands and got in trouble when tossing the ball around with him from the time I was 8 when I didn't.
If these guys aren't being told to coach to catch with their hands, Zach smith needs to go.
There many, many things the coaches could have tried. I understand the "im running something in a game until i see it work in practice" talk that some coaches have, but these are football players that know the intricacies of the game. They can pick up a couple plays here and there, especially when it's just the skill players for the most part that have to change. It's not like they needed to change entire blocking patterns. The RB screens off tackle and maybe some middle screens should have worked and should have at least been attempted.
If it wasnt obvious, no great, explosive offense has ever run 4 verticals on every play.
I'm not entirely sure why anyone would want to be a defender in today's NFL. They cant even say "because i like to hit people more than to get hit." They cant even hit people any more.
I've always been a college fan over the NFL and things like this just add to it. I slowly see college adopting alot of the NFL rules though too.
I’m tired of hearing how guys like McMillan and Dixon need to see the field because they are grown ass men only to see them stapled to the bench
This. It's my exact thoughts. We saw one play from McMillan and even though it was ONLY 1 play, it was outstanding. Give the guy a chance and end the love affair they have with Curtis Grant.
Never once did Fear the Nut say he knew the solution. He simply pointed out something that was pretty obvious. Like rolling a right-handed qb to the left against a pass rush that's been in the backfield all game. He also did that more than once. I'm not saying i know how to fix the many problems they have, though.
How can you think money wont be relevant? Why are there 35 bowl games now and every average team gets to play in one? Why did it take so long for the playoff to get created?
They absolutely want the best teams, and for the most part, the tradition-rich, big-fan base teams will be near the top, but to think money will be irrelevant is naive, IMO. It will always have a money factor, right or wrong.
I'm from Lima area as well and worked late shift at tsc on east side. We heard the choppers and about 10 min later all the UNOH students got an alert. Just a crazy, unnecessary, avoidable situation.
While I don't expect it to happen, what this team really needs now is for VT to run the table and be undefeated heading into the playoff. That would make this loss, assuming it's the only one, a whole lot better.
This is a dream for the athletics side of things. But most students arent athletes and because 99% of students, athletes or not, need those degrees after their playing days are over, the academics are truly most important in the grand scheme. I agree with you, that the SEC has put winning above all else, but the Big Ten will not ever stoop to that level in academics.
In his defense, I followed this site for a number of months before creating an account and I didn't know right away. By only looking thru the football and recruiting forums, plus articles, I never came across the requirements and had to look deeper to find them.
It depends how you look at it with "rebuilding vs reloading." I think this football team could still finish with just 1 or 2 losses. How many teams could honestly call that a rebuilding year? Only a handful teams can just reload, and we're all fortunate to be fans of 1 of those programs. It says something that were upset with a 2-3 loss season, because other places would ecstatic with that good of a year.
My issue with the NCAA isn't whether this was right or wrong. It's that they have NO consistency WHATSOEVER in the punishments they levy to schools and programs.
