Thanks for the analysis
I realize Lee has put on a little weight since last year but he still isn't the largest linebacker in the world. Obviously he makes up for it with grit and speed but I don't love this match up, at least on paper. Perry, on the other hand, is a lot larger but doesn't have Lee's coverage skills. I wonder if there is a way to put Perry on Hodges at the line of scrimmage, assuming his extra size should hold him longer before a safety has to take over, leaving Lee free to come for Brewer and disrupt the play before Hodges breaks loose. Despite the height difference, Lee is probably the best bet for covering him on his routes (assuming we aren't using Lee for a blitz). Maybe I'd use Perry at the line of scrimmage to bump Hodges when they have two wide and have Bell ready to cover him downfield, but still use Lee on Hodges when they go three wide. If Perry is bumped down to end, Booker might be an intriguing combo of size and speed that still leaves Lee free to do other things like blitz. It would be asking a lot from someone who hasn't played much but Booker is an athletic freak and may be ready to break out after a year in the program.
The he good news is I trust Apple on Ford so Hodges should be one of the only legitimate threats to burn us. He might be an offensive nightmare matchup but you can't beat Ohio State with one offensive weapon, just ask Nick Saban and Amari Cooper.
Alternative uniforms have been a curse forums so if they want to wear some I will not complain.
I don't work Tuesday so on Monday night I will be drinking whatever I want and however much I want. I haven't yet decided if it'll be a beer kind of night or a bourbon kind of night. Maybe I'll pick up a growler of something.
You dont have to be a genius (insert Tom Herman is in MENSA joke here) to realize that when something works you stick with it. Tom has seen it work first hand so why mess with the formula.
Good luck to him but I don't think it'll change our class very much.
The expectations are so high this year that they will get that 1.5 million back and then some with people buying things because they are convinced we will repeat and dominate. If I had to bet on anyone it would be us, but if I didn't want the it for the listed price I wouldn't bet over $2000 in furniture on a repeat, even without the point spread.
Take your time Austin. No need to rush back on the field when your neurological health is involved.
It definitely feels strange rooting for the gators to land a five star wide receiver, even if it is clear how it helps us.
In a way him saying now that we might play two seems to make it more likely to me that he picks one and sticks with it. He is messing with Foster everyday he can.
"We had to do lunges with weight I could not lift. I looked at him like, 'No, I can't lift it,' and he made me do it, and I'm like falling on the ground," Holmes said. "And he's like, 'You p----!'"
"I had never been called a p---- before. For a minute, I thought I was a p----."
This quote from Jalyn Holmes says it all about Marrotti. He takes them to levels that they never thought they could achieve by making their current best inadequate.
I love what Marrotti does for the team but admittedly I'm glad I'll never meet him in real life.
Agree to disagree. To me Cooper looks like Spence without the off the field issues.
Holy McLaurin! He looks ready to step up on Labor Day with the suspensions.
I'm no lawyer, but it seems like all these cases need to convict non-athletes is the testimony of the victim and a few photos of bruises presented by a doctor.
They can call themselves whatever they want with no complaints from me.
Look into the OSU branch campuses. They have open enrollment and if you are in good standing you can automatically transfer to main campus without having to apply. They are also affordable.
With those cheerleaders standing behind him, USC is lucky that the jokes he made weren't even more graphic.
We have such a wealth of talent at H back and wide out that I hope they use the young talent that isn't getting enough offensive plays.
Campbell will have a hard time getting enough time because of who's ahead of him and he definitely has the speed, I vote for giving him a chance.
This is helpful. I didn't like this video as well as the last one because it seemed cut too tight and tough to tell what was happening. I didn't think about actually slowing it down myself.
As much as the media criticized him for the Cowherd interview maybe he is just being proactive and avoiding interviews all together. You can't take the crazy out of the Harbaugh, but you can take the Harbaugh out of the interview.
Or in other words, what are the chances he would have been let go if Justin had signed with Iowa? I'm willing to wager that they would be a lot lower.
Any chance he'll walk on at OSU? I dont know that it would make a big difference but it'd be cool to reunite the brothers.
I just hope we don't switch scheme every week because that's what Whithers did. The best part of Ash is he picked a base scheme that works in basically all scenarios and takes our superior athletes, lines them up, and let's them play fast because they don't have to think about scheme.
If it's different enough to throw them off then it'll be too much work and confusion to install. If it isn't that different, meaning it isn't hard to install, then it probably isn't going to fool anyone so what's the point.
A 3-4 has such different assignments that it seems more likely they just use Perry as a 4-3 end for a few plays without blowing up the whole defense and starting over. He may even stand up but if he is acting like a 4-3 end in assignment then it isn't a 3-4.
I think we will just add wrinkles and concepts to the existing playbook.
Maybe it's the modern thing to do, but I personally hate when uniforms aren't symmetrical. If the helmet graphic was smaller and the whole thing was symmetrical I actually would like these because of the solid white background of the jersey and pants instead of the normal Adidas refusal to just use a solid color.
