What is the most important matchup of this game, and who do you feel will have the advantage?
Same here, I cannot connect to the main page, but can get in other ways - looking at articles from the web, or by using the forum. Anyone in the know out there that can tell us exactly what the problem is and when it will be corrected? Many thanks.
Whichever QB Meyer decides on I will be fine with. Watching the two last year, each has their own unique skill set.
Barrett is a natural born leader, and I feel he knows the read option best. He makes a quick read and very seldom makes the wrong read. Jones has a monster arm and makes defenses respect the down-field routes. Cardale is also a beast to tackle, but JT is a much shiftier runner.
Either way, we have a great QB to run our offense, and a back-up that could start at almost every other college football program.
Let's get this season on.
I know it wouldn't be smart to say, would be frowned upon by Urban, and would be bulletin board material, but I would love to hear one of our players say, "Va Tech is NOT going to know what hit them on September 7th."
I hope they don't plan on wearing them during games, please be practice only. I can't imagine trying to catch a pass with them damn things on....
Amen Phi! And I hope our defense will bring one word to all the offenses it will face this year - TERRIFYING
Yeah - that's what I tell my wife!
Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought Burrell may get work in at center.
Goodunyuh and have an up-vote from me, too! Welcome!!
With Miller and Gibson - 2 QBs - I would expect to see some reverse passes become a new steady wrinkle in our offense. Imagine this: Miller/Gibson in motiion, take the pitch, either throw to A) WR running the deep route, B) throw to a receiver running a slant into the vacated deep route runner's area, or C) tuking the ball and running.
Soooo many weapons, and SO FEW plays to distribute the wealth. This is why the no-huddle-hurry-up offense is vital. If we can run 80 plays or more a game, it gives each weapon more touches. And - you keep feeding the hot hand(s).
2015 could be special season.
I also love that his mom is "easy on the eyes" - pretty lady, indeed!
Wow! I think the new namefor the Big 10 Conference should be the Buckeye Conference.
I'm wondering if Demetrius Knox will earn the nickname of Fort Knox. Dude is about THAT big.
I don't know how the season will play out, but I will say this:
Players that play for their teammates and the team are MUCH tougher to defeat than a player focused on his own personal goals.
I truly hope this will be another magical season.
Phi - you hit the nail on the proverbial head. If they win as a team, great things will come, and some of the rewards may be individual honors at the end of the season. But - all the players remain FOCUSED on winning AS A TEAM.
I love this coach and the mentality he brings to our football team!
Depends on who you ask. Alabama would say he had a "lucky" night against them.
I love the new commercial for the upcoming college football season. It has Meyer all over it, and it couldn't be any more true.
Damn - that is funny! I didn't realize how stupid that sounds now!! LOL
Dr. Earl, would any physician allow an athlete to start training earlier than the timelines you outline above, if an athlete seems to be recovering quicker than normal?
I know some people need longer time and there are some that recover sooner. My gut feel would be that since the sport is football, I doubt he will be released too early.
Thank you for the great article!
Funny story about this, 3M.
I was in a bathroom taking a leak on a golf course and an older, retired man comes up in the urinal next to me and asks how I am doing. I reply I am doing fine, and ask him the same. He tells me, "Let me give you two pieces of advice, young fellow. Never pass up a bathroom, and never trust a fart."
He damned near made me fall face first into the urinal laughing so hard.
It's a 1 + 2 at the same time!
I LIKE what you did, there!
Best of luck to you, T, and I hope you make the team.
EDIT - not only do I hope you make the team, I hope you become a great WR.
