SEC bias. Everyone expects Coker to play like the 3 time national champ he replaced...or better. But everyone discounts Urban Meyers handpicked qb, even though past history says you better not. 

Personally, I'll let it play out and see whether the "experts" know what they're talking about. 

Comment 27 Aug 2014

Think this may be a case of the coaches given the seniors a chance to play for it, but I think we'll see a replacement very soon if either of the 2 starting wideouts struggle early.

Comment 27 Aug 2014

3 guys listed as OR at the running back position. Eze, Rod, Samuel. Slightly surprised to see Samuel listed, even given Meyer's love affair and constant praise for him.
 

Comment 25 Aug 2014

Why are people complaining about braxton traveling? He's head and shoulders the leader and model athlete of this program? Remember when he was busy putting in work on a Friday night with at least 1 teammate? Coaches wish every player were like that. The kid gets it and I think he'll be invaluable in State College, East Lansing, and everywhere else being in JT and everybody's ear when they need a solid guy to hear good advice from that isn't a coach.

Also, I dont think Urban Meyer names players captains without those players completely earning that title. If he wasn't deserving of a captain's spot, he would not have been given the title, IMO. After Miller, Heuer, Bennett, and Grant, all fairly obvious choices, that's 2 per side of the ball. For the 5th, he could have went offense or defense and there were other senior starters on offense as well.

Comment 25 Aug 2014

Makes sense. They have to know it'll be tough to almost impossible to run consistently on our defensive line. Test the unproven secondary in their first game.

Comment 24 Aug 2014

I'll feel better about it after the VT game but I do think 13-0 thru Conf champ week is possible. However, I'll predict we slip up somewhere, either penn st or, more likely, MSU, and finish 2nd in the east and 11-1 with a New Year's Day bowl.

The "problem" with Colin cowherd that Espn loves is that he says things to stir up the pot then people go all over social media loving or hating him for it and getting the Espn brand plastered everywhere. 

As long as you're talking about him, good or bad, it's good for Espn. 

Comment 22 Aug 2014

2100y. 22TD, 9 INT

450Y. 6 TD rushing. 

Solid numbers, but I think you'll see the run game a considerable amount, assuming the o-line gels and can eventually get near the level of the last 2 years. 

Comment 21 Aug 2014

D Grant, Bennett, Decker, D Wilson, Bosa, Johnston

Hard to see any other skill players on offense with as much as were expected to spread the ball and RBBC. Picked Wilson bc I expect him to be the most dynamic and get the most touches out of a variety of different positions. 

Comment 21 Aug 2014

I can't see 3 d linemen making 1st team. Not enough sacks/ TFL to go around on 1 team. 

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Bama doesn't know who their starter is yet. Everyone expects them to make the Playoff. We actually know our starter and he's been practicing with the 1's for months. 

No reason a B1G title and Playoff appearance aren't the goal still. It's those or bust, IMO. 

Comment 20 Aug 2014

You're assuming Miller is the best option for next year already. Yes, it's premature to expect J.T. to play like JM or Winston, but what if he does? I don't think it's a guarantee right now that Miller is the better option without seeing what JT (or Cardale) can do. 

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Let's just hope that decision is one that eventually needs made. That means Braxton comes back completely healthy and Barrett shines this year. 

Comment 19 Aug 2014

My thoughts were similar. What if Barrett proves to be a solid, eventually elite passer? What about keeping Braxton as a weapon somewhere else? That would be a tough call to make but if it comes to that, player with best chance to win should play.
