NP Seattle - I just needed to try & balance the absolute bi-polar activity on these boards - I believe time will show this was a top 10 Va tech team - underestimated in part because no one knew anything about their transfer AB - kid got the slobber knocked out of him several times - showed tremendous guts in staying in game - he was a difference maker for the previously unranked team.
LOL - preciate the sense o humor thrill!
well - at -21 dv's - I think the thrill really IS gone....
Not sure you get the point of your own post....
Agree on Thomas & Samuel - Bosa continues to go beast mode - and Bucksfan70 is at -69 stickers.
This was actually sent to me by a college buddy who is a die hard War Eagle...
i NEED 10000 UPVOTES for Urbz!
(clears throat) - This is the 100th post on Meyers coaching..... We cant block anybody - pass or run block - it limits your offense when you cant block at all! This is the same Meyer who kicked our collective asses in the NCG - he had the Pounceys and could actually block our Dline.
Thanks Todd- you are in the 10% of quality comments - 90% of these posts have been without depth & emotional. These last 2 days are why my co-worker who is a massive M**&*(igan fan says that tOSU fans are homers & bandwagon. The idiot comments of calling for Meyer or Wariner to be fired (after Wariner crafted one of the best Olines in FBS history - 3 of 4 on a pro roster TODAY!) - is frustrating. Yes Va tech started a lot of youth - but we had 4 new Oline starters vs a seasoned Dline & a freshman QB who has played 1 game in 2 years vs a Va Tech kid who has already graduated college & working on his masters at age 22. Those were the 2 glaring differences - and a solid Va Tech Oline. Calling out playcalling is nonsensical when our Oline could not run block - protect, or pass block. It significantly limits the playbook when your Oline as a whole cannot hold a block for more then 2 seconds. Is it Wariners job to coach them up? Yes - but 4 new starters ALL at once on the one unit that requires by far the most cohesion? Not gonna happen overnight.
All the whining & complaining after our first regular season loss since 2011? Many of these posts are an embarrassment to the fan base.
People need a reality check - 4 Oline starters gone - 3 in the NFL - that & a freshman QB? Get real people - our Oline literally got steamrolled all night - If you have to start grooming Jones - Jones & Knox now because the others are not gonna get it done - then so be it. Play calling? Get real - it didn't matter what we called - we could not run the ball at all & could not pass protect - when we did Corey Smith dropped the ball or ran bad routes.
ahhhh Mark May -
cool - good dialog - not a jbook fan at all.
Terrence Gibson -
Yes but Braxton has started 30+ games - this was Barrett's first game in essentially 2 full years. If he continues to progress (why not?) - he does two things they have asked of Braxton that he has never done - through with accuracy consistently, and complete over 70% of passes. Brax has never done this - JT does first day. I am from Dayton & love BMiller - but if this kid leads us to a B1G title (Brax has never won a tilte) - there is ABSOLUTLEY a QB controversy next year.
I dont find Chris' or DJ's comments asinine or offensive like jbook's - 2 totally different things - they expressed opinion which I disagree with - jbook was being a dick.
I have never seen anyone in 30+ years of football criticize someone who made 13 tackles in one game. RDS missed tackles regularly - but made a lot more that he missed - same with Powell -FROM THE FREE SAFETY POSTION!!!! Why is there no criticism of CGrant or the linebacking corp? a lot of these were their tackles - including some of the ones Powell missed - the LBs were not even in on the play.
Appreciate the optimism" (sarcasm intended) - 13 tackles - what game did you watch?
13 tackles according to Patrick
Thanks for the intellectual tweet - a few missed tackles - dude had 13 tackles from the free safety position. While jbook was running his mouth Powell was working....
