You've got to always remember, we're talking about the University and the best universities attract the best from home and abroad.
Why do I see De Niro laughing in that picture?
Damn, this made my day! Love the new talent, but it's great seeing ol' guys return bc they want to or get another shot after a buzzkill injury.
Bosa and Spence vs saban-kiffin ... in my dreams.
well, I liked its alliterative use--hah, really I thought this whole thread was perfect for Thursday
My thoughts, too--I know the guy has it in him.
Yes, exactly. And let the stanfred guy be distracted.
Hah, poor Joe, let the guy go. That 10-7 msu game reminded me of the 2015 game. I give him a pass--so to speak.
And that's great, too. Wish that kind of thing was heard.
*I'm commenting from the state that was once thoroughly infatuated with a tamu qb.
Proud moment that will last as long as they and their families will remember. Just great. Good for coach Meyer, too.
I've been waiting a long time for Dunn to adjust to and show up in Meyer's system. His anticipation and strength--my impression a long time ago--were elite, rolling thunder between tackles. Thought he could catch, too.
Try sitting through Rose Bowls 1971 and 1973 --> I savor (savor) every bowl win, never take them for granted.
This is an excellent article. The weaving of bio with schematics and coaching method was superb. Left me thinking I understand the hire and how excellently (and quickly) he will fit in.
The guy absolutely has the great name to takeover the Buckeye TE position. He's gifted, but it's all up to him.
Thanks for the laugh!
Coaching prodigies and grinders alike is what Meyer loves. I see him going nowhere else but here--this is the program for him in so many ways. Leaving for the nfl would have to be a swansong sorta thing.
Haha, I'm satisfied with players whose fumbles escape my memory.
I remember the spring game last year and people saying they were impressed/glad he was catching passes. I thought yeah, ok--but I definitely had the wrong impression of him. The catches he's made ... very impressive. His running has always been impressive.
Miller aside, it's hard to rate talent objectively on the team. But, this guy is an incredibly athletic playmaker at every position he plays. And I can't recall that he's ever coughed up the ball. The guy has to be used far more often next season.
Excellent piece--especially that it's now known who/what all has to be replaced/built.
I don't think the conference divisions are correctly cut. Kinda like the the conference coty award. Cr@ppy agendas, so it's not all noonetoblamebutthemselves. It's college football and seasons like a one-loss season happen to even the best of teams, who have even also underachieved most of the season.
What disappoints me is that the team didn't have a chance to recover via the conference championship. I won't mention having to watch the conference champion msu and runnerup uiowa in the postseason.
I'm guessing of course, because I don't know the guy, but it's a major reason for his love of the college game. I think the same of Tressel, too. And either one of these guys might give the nfl a try, but I hope they don't. They should stay where they're needed.
Everybody I've ever known has had to grow up. He's sounding fine--actually considering what he's just had to get behind him, he sounds ahead of things. Being a prodigy isn't easy and Meyer excels at growing them up.
"best as the underdog"
That he wasn't is what you call 'Luck of the Irish.'
... except for their long history of lobbying all season long--which is one reason the first CFP was so, so sweet.
What Decker said is really a great tribute to him and I knew exactly what he was talking about. Elliot reminded of one of my favorite teammates, the focus, the intensity, and a truly elite talent who always brought all of it every time for his team and just as much too, a hellava lotta fun to the game, including practices. He's gonna be missed.
