Meyer is reinventing himself here and pioneering the program forward--we're so lucky. And yes, this is exactly what WWH would've wanted to see.
What you want to see is a highlight reel of our great backs. This man is certainly among the best ever to play here (and anywhere else and should've at least had a certain invitation), but I've seen some very great backs come through this program--and always keep in mind it's hard to separate out the back from his O-line.... I think also, Zeke would've been just as a great of a teammate--and that's just as important, too, as his accomplishments.
I never had the impression that they did this stuff forever, or even as routine. This anniversary tradition stuff builds a team and personal character that has distinguished them from most of their opponents every season--especially from those dum@sses up north. I also think you haven't looked at enough S&C before-after photos of our freshmen, nor do I think you have a firm grasp of their development trajectories over the past several years.
I expect even better results overall, though it will look differently, especially the punting--we're going to have a qb back there, right? There's then going to be more potential for that legendary Meyer 4th-down aggressiveness--maybe surprisingly when things look as if there going to be contrary and venerably Tressel-like. I expect that Nuernberger will have his form under control.
Schiano vs Army (triple option):
He has a plan.
I was amused reading the president's statement. I wonder what kind of coach he'd had if he played the game. The game in those days, especially the practices, was definitely not the same as today. I think the issue was the same thing we saw unfortunately later on with JT, that you cannot publicly place your employer in such an awkward position. It just compels action.
I especially remember him for his commencement speech. Just so much larger than life.
In a nutshell, what a story. Thanks
The last reg season game I saw jp play he seemed confused about where his position should be.
Brendon White's multi-position experience has got to be a significant advantage for getting onto the field early, especially after he's done S&C this winter/spring, and even if the staff's got him figured for a particular defensive position. His dad's smart, he's smart--he's going to be very impressive early on.
Blowouts are the only time I can eat or drink anything during a Bucks game, so I definitely am there for all 60 and the post wraps.
So if Meyer is telling the truth
Well, that made me laugh.
absolutely earned the right to have one more season to turn things around
Just a homer alum with a shallow understanding of the game, but I like this guy a lot and his legacy deserves a better ending ... than yet another season with some two game rolls that likely put a fork in his career. I'm thinking (hoping, actually) the good coach makes a decision based on a realistic assessment for next season. It's a hard job and, when someone's done so much good, I like to see him bow out because of choice, not because of cause.
Yes, he's all that. And the "here to get my degree" line is in particular fantastic to hear. Very mature guy for his age, as well as gifted.
And this article, too, I bookmarked, which I didn't think was 'last week' but it sorta was--time slips by. Anyway, I think Wilson's outside vs inside blocking philosophy (or tactics) executed well within clever sequences of plays will bring the big change to the offense.
Meyer likes those late stiletto-in-the-throat bomz, too. I don't want to see those go away--but, first, I want to see the 2nd half open up much more often against the better opponents. I really expect Wilson to facilitate that dynamic.
^^^^Beat me to it 'by that much.' Rich article. I bookmarked it. Thanks, Eric.
*I'd say Meyer's still relatively early in developng into the kind of head coach he next wants to be. Considerations of 'workplace environment' aside, I'd say he probably wants this program for some time to come. WWH and Cooper teams sometimes possessed massive levels of talent across the board, but in my lifetime I've not seen such potential as Meyer teams, players and staff together. Meyer's certain to get where he wants to be as a head coach.
Yes, exactly, good for him, and best of luck! A very talented back.
Big-big paired with maturity and focus will be killer. They'll get where they and the team need to be. Starting to feel good about the O-line's future.
If they keep TP, I'm gonna have my inlaws get me some Brownz tees. HELLO, CLEVELAND
Is TP still going to be around? Those two together could really pump the team's esprit de corps more than a bit.
Goal No. 6--was that a slap or what! A slap in the face, hahah
*Thanks for the highlight links, too
What's Marotti doing with him? Interesting to see him develop--I think that's going to be the tell.
Fundamentals speaking, he didn't play anything so well against the better competition. The guy had an attitude that never matured in that environment--which did not surprise me, at all.
Absolutely right. Still don't care for nfl, but you're absolutely right.
