Seems like back in the day (pick you day), the Bullets were good for a shutout or two or three each year. 

I know we shut out Wiscy.  How many more shutouts did we have last year? One: Kent State.

I would like to see three or four this year.  I would love for Va Tech to be the first one.

It takes a LOT of pressure off the offense!

Agree with CuseGirl.  Curtis Samuel is a stud, and although he is not Braxton, he has played a lot of snaps (40 or 50?) and he has been hit many times. 

And at RB,  Elliott, Dunn is the way I see it.

I think Herbie is okay.  I suspect his "assignment" as part of his NC game coverage was to focus on Mariota. He spent a lot of time with him and I would bet money that ESPN told him he was to be the designated Mariota lover. 

Many of us have also thought over the years that the whole issue with him started because he was trying a little too hard to be objective.  That picture of him jumping on Eddie was while he was on the sidelines as a spectator --- he wasn't working the game!  If he was doing the game he would have been bending over backwards to compliment Miami, even when they were getting slapped around by Peterson, Will Smith, Fraser, Doss, Gamble, Reynolds, Cie Grant, and the others who I'm forgetting! Of course, he and Dan Fouts might have gotten into a fist fight, Fouts was being such a tool...

I, too, think Bell is The Man, and I also think he learned a lot through the title run.  Herbstreidt made a point in the NC game, about Bell getting looked off by Mariota... and maybe so, but for a guy as smart as Vonn Bell, he learns from that kind of experience.  Better and better.

If I had a say, I'd be leaning toward JT.  Especially for Va Tech, so he can settle up the score personally with them.

After that, I wish there was a way to rotate them game by game.

Also, I have an issue with people who say that Cardale is not a accurate as JT.  If his completion percentage is lower it's because he throws it away when there's nothing, whereas JT would be able to run and get something out of it.  But in Cardale's three games, there were very few balls thrown that didn't go where he wanted them to go.

Either way, we are in good shape come Sept. 7th. 

should we all take Sept. 8th off work? Who am I kidding?

Comment 26 Aug 2015

And I think JT said he was a "freak" with the ball in his hands.

Super Freak! Super Freak!

Comment 26 Aug 2015

you are right but.... part of me always wants TTUN to be undefeated when we play them. 

Comment 25 Aug 2015

Antwaan Randle-el was drafted in the second round after playing at Indiana.  As you all know, after being a college QB he excelled in the NFL at receiver and punt returns.

And he was only 5-10.  Even if the 6-2 is generous, Braxton has at least 3 inches on Randle-el.

Randle-el also has the NFL's highest QB rating for players with over 20 pass attempts.  it's 156 or something like that!

Comment 21 Aug 2015

I think we are going to be laughing out loud when Urbz and the silver bullets unleash the schemes against Va Tech.  Their offensive coordinator might resign at half time!

on the other side, JT is going to have his revenge.  After this game, Va Tech will be the 119-th ranked defense in division I.

OMG you guys are so right on.  I have been telling my wife all summer, "yeah, there's a baseball game on but I'm not watching it." and "yeah, there's a hockey playoff game on but I'm not watching it".

And then I remind her, all bets are off starting in September.

When I got mine done, I had my choice of two local docs (in Delaware, OH area):  One had done about 100 vasectomies, and the other about 10,000.  I went with the 10,000.

absolutely no regrets ever. As far as the post op sperm counts, my guy told me it's a risk for the first 6 months or so - and when I got mine done the wife was about 4 months pregnant.  So I never went back and did the check. 

Don't be a baby - get 'er done.

I don't want to see a 2 QB system, at least not one in which from play to play the QB might get yanked. I do think, however, on a week-to-week basis, Cardale might be a better starter than Barrett, and vice versa.

And while I think Barrett will get the start against VT (just 'cause he must want to beat them sooooo bad), last year Cardale might have been our weapon against the (surprise) bear defense. 

I don't know how you could work it.  But it seems like BOTH quarterbacks are assets to be deployed as needed. 

... all the while acknowledging the old maxim, "if you have 2 quarterbacks, then you don't have one."
