The depth chart doesn't list a starter at Nickle. Who do you think it will be?
I've always been confused by people's problem with him generally supporting SEC and their bell cow Alabama. Do people expect him to get on the SEC network and bash them? He would be quickly unemployed. Also I respect his ability to pick his battles and stand up to them from time to time.
I noticed that too and he did the same thing during the last press or which makes me think he must still be hurt.
I hope Chris Childers comes up, he was at MSU so he may. He was always reasonably pro OSU in the years before we won the national championship when nationally we were doubted.
Usually they do an extended piece on the team they are visiting and interview the coach and about three players or so, sometimes the athletic director as well.
Falo isn't a consistent part of the Inderkum High offense. He caught only 11 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns as a junior last season
He's a perfect fit for OSU.
It sounds like he has a great attitude.
There is always talk about a deep rotation; I hope we actually see it this year.
When a historically basketball school looking for any advantage possible to move up to the level of Clemson and FSU in their conference doesn't even want you to help them for free analyzing film (not even interacting with players) it might be a sign that a career change is needed.
I like how there is one Golden State Warriors jersey mixed in with the UM Legos; they probably ran out and needed a yellow stand in.
There are certainly differing techniques but the coaches who resort to gimmicks for motivation usually have teams with weak cultures that don't hold up. Alternatively, coaches like Meyer just create a competitive environment and culture so that all it takes is a speech to get the troops ready to go.
I think Samuel would become the primary back but the need for a change up to a power back would give Williams about 2-5 carries a game just to balance the offense. If he took off, maybe he becomes 50:50 with Samuel or even primary.
If Worley can't handle the inside pro style plays then we will be in trouble because I don't know that Baker would be any better at it. I think it'll be just fine and Worley will stand up to the test.
During Booker's recruitment a bunch of people on this site talked about moving him to defensive end which didn't make a lot of sense to me but having him occasionally rush as one similar to Lee does make sense. It also makes sense to rush Booker so that Workey can stay in coverage at the same time.
Sometimes I think we make way more of a cause and effect relationship out of offers and other players on the team or in the same class. It's just as likely that Meyer and staff just think he is a great player.
Good Dubcast. I agree about Meyer having that "I know something you don't" confidence. He had it before MSU 2014, and during the playoff. There may be no better predictor of our future success than his attitude.
I'm far from the first person to say this but, last year the two best offensive and defensive lines Oklahoma played against were Texas and Clemson. Both games were very lopsided in the rushing statistics (Texas rushed for 313 yards, Oklahoma for 67, Clemson 312, Oklahoma again rushed for 67). I think this makes us a very good match up for them. Both of our lines have new faces but I think they will be ready to go by the game. Our identity is a tough, push opponents around team that may do just that on September 17th.
The best part is that we won't have to hear the "he's going to the Lakers/Heat/Warriors/Bulls/etc. after this year is over" stuff like this year.
The wide receivers look good. Brown keeps looking as described. Hopefully Clark really is healthy finally and can become the deep threat this team needs with his speed.
For a second I thought that was Michael C. Hall (Dexter) playing iron fist. I wonder how that show will go. I personally never cared much for the character previously.
Pryor subtext: We were both young, stupid, and arrogant but one of us is trying to grow up.
Get your Harley Quinn–Ohio State mashup before the university's legal eagles tombstone it.
So in other words by 8:00 am this morning when the "Cease and desist or we will own your company by lunchtime to scrap it for parts" letter comes down.
Anybody else think that committing to your high school makes it sound like you're flunking and will be in high school an extra year?
I didn't realize that team switched into the striped shoulders right before the game, I assumed it was long planned. Did they just not have what they needed in normal jerseys?
It's sad that a coach should have to treat assistant coaches like eighth graders and check their work before a presentation. I give Sumlin benefit of the doubt for assuming adults will act like adults are supposed to in public.
This is is just another negative headline that keep adding up for Sumlin and will magnify a poor record this season if it happens like most predict.
Somebody from the WHAC should send Connelly a gift basket. It's just another little piece of motivation which should give this team a hunger and attitude that last year's team found way too late in the year.
This is one of those scenarios where even though it's true and he is right you still really shouldn't say it, especially publicly.
Our society is a funny thing.
