I couldn't agree more.  The comparison to Elliott and Green gets thrown out there a lot but it is a relevant scenario that has popped up in our recruiting.  Urban is assembling teams to win playoff games with the assumption that if you accumulate talent to win playoff games you can also win the B1G.  If Urban's assessment (I know I'm putting words in his mouth) is that Sibley is a solid conference player but not the cream of the crop that throws a team on his back in the playoffs like Elliott did then go get the player that has the ceiling to bring home the gold trophy.

I like Gibson playing off the line. He doesn't have the nuances required of a wide receiver yet but giving him that space may let his athleticism take over rather than get held up by press coverage. 

I would just leave Brown at the X unless Mack becomes so good that we need both players on the field at the same time.  Two tight end sets will likely involve Baugh and the Notre Dame transfer as a blocker.

Run a play with him as an eligible tackle. I would love to see a safety try to tackle him.

It sounds to me like Meyer is saying that Cardale had to work hard enough at school that his football work suffered slightly. This is the opposite of concerning to me. If Cardale works that hard at school and the NFL becomes school full time it is easy to imagine him working very hard at the NFL with little standing in his way.

Posts like this are why voting on forum topics is a great idea. 

I think our defense will be better than most expect and Schianno will be able to maintain enough of Ash's philosophies to be effective but have enough new, unseen variation to through OU off. If I am them I test our run defense because I think our pass rush will be too much to handle.

It was probably posted elsewhere but I thought Oregon's was funny.   They said they were replacing their turf with a clear acrylic turf with an LED screen below it. 



 If someone could use something like this to show line of scrimmage and first down lines at the stadium like on tv it would be helpful.

I wonder if this is a Tim May creation. He laughs loudly at his own jokes in almost every interview I have heard of him.

When this class was recruited I thought they were going to be the base of our team for the next 3-4 years. Multiple players good enough to form a team around but not talented enough to bolt to the NBA after one year. Apparently I could not have been more wrong. Until we land another Russell-level recruit it is hard to be excited about this team. 

Comment 24 Mar 2016

Allow me to clarify.  In 2015 we brought in Burrow and Gibson at quarterback.  Both are fierce competitors who each felt they could likely bet the other in an open competition, particularly because neither had a head start considering they enrolled at the same time.  On the other hand, Haskins (or other 2016 quarterbacks like Guarrantano) are right to be concerned about the depth chart because the previous class featured a very skilled player (Burrow) who has a head start by a year meaning that there is a good chance they won't play until he leaves when they are a senior (or redshirt junior, but senior by amount of years).

Comment 24 Mar 2016

I wonder if the staff needs to do a better job explaining when a kid commit that there is a chance we will add another player to the class at your position if he is the right player.  Additionally, we will remain in contact and continue to recruit players despite your commitment.  If either of these two statements are not to your liking then hold off on your commitment until you feel comfortable with the current situation.

I find it strange that players seem to freak out about other players in the same class.  The far more important competition is the class above you. If a great player in that class seizes the job, you might not see the field until you are a senior.  Someone in the same class has the same chances starting out and, assuming you are confident in your abilities, you should not think it is likely that you will lose a competition with an peer on equal footing.

If Notre Dame had been start they would have looked at how lopsided the B1G is and joined the West.  They would be in the conference championship most years.

Comment 16 Mar 2016

It's a different discussion, but I do believe this team, plus the Ohio State pros that are in the league and come back could take a good shot at teams. That brings back Roby, Shazier, Heyward, Ginn, Brown, Coleman, Jenkins, etc. etc. etc.  The offensive line would be very good. The only position that would have trouble is quarterback. 

Comment 16 Mar 2016

Considering he is still a fairly recent hire, how well have you gotten to know Coach Schianno?  Is it intimidating knowing your position coach has been a head coach in the NFL?

Comment 11 Mar 2016

I didn't mean to imply that Captain America doesn't consider consequences; he does. I only meant to state that his interpretation of the consequences is the only one that really matters to him.

Tony considered consequences far less than any one else from the group. I only meant to imply that he is changing and beginning to see the world from more perspectives than his own. 

Comment 10 Mar 2016

Honestly, I don't see how you can look at Tony as anything else than the bad guy. He may be a hero, but he has made the mistakes that have led to most of the conflict in this series.

In the past movies I agree but the preview sure seems to indicate that Tony has changed enough that he wants to be responsible.  "We need to be put in check, whatever form that takes I'm game" sounds more responsible than "If I see a situation pointed south I can't ignore it" which basically just implies I will continue running around doing whatever I want.  The vision Tony had in the last Avengers was likely put in the movie to allow Tony to develop into a more mature character who considers consequences.

Lovie appears to have spotted the vacuum that is the B1G west. A good coach can run that division and take a shot at the east for the title almost every year. Obviously Illinois has a way to go before we are talking about that, but with the downward slide Nebraska, and Wisconsin have been on it isn't out of the realm of possibility.
