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.

You can make a call as to whether you think Baylor was too strong in the way they dealt with it. Unbelievably, I've had people tell me they don't think they dealt with it strongly enough."

Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and make a call that firing people is definitely not too strong of a response to covering up and protecting the abuse down in Waco. 

He just doesn't seem to get the magnitude of the situation.

If Samuel and/or Wilson are going to put in significant time at running back mixed in with Weber then we will need another H back for depth. Maybe it's Campbell although the staff may want to get McCall up to speed if his depth isn't needed at running back.

Assuming Martell is the one throwing these passes (because he and Grimes are on the same team) it is kinda hard to say Aquinas over Gorman.  It is more like Gorman offense > Gorman Defense.

I was thinking that Dobbins could win it, depending on how the scores are tallied.  He is small but fast and strong.  If he happens to grow another two inches he could grow into a Zeke type back that is a great balance of speed and strength.  If he stays the same height he will have a great low center of gravity but may have a harder time getting up into the 215-225 range without compromising speed.  Either way he is a going to be a good one.

I think the kid from Notre Dame will be the blocking tight end this year, but it would be a great way to get Pridgeon, Prince, and Jones all in the game at the same time (assuming there isn't a sliding to guard scenario). I think any of the three would be athletic enough but Pridgeon makes the most sense given that he's least likely to already be a starting tackle (at least in my humble opinion).

Liver enzyme increase means liver injury, not liver failure. Other tests determine liver failure. Liver injury ranges from very mild to very severe. See an Internal Medicine Specialist, particularly given how young he is. 

Comment 22 Jun 2016

He was a liability in coverage at the safety position early in the year but solid at run support. The move to linebacker is to make the coverage aspect less important but I don't remember many 5'9" linebackers that are very successful.  I predict that shedding blocks will be a problem, if you can get a solid block on him I think it'll stick for the whole play. The best linebackers break through blocks to make plays like Lee in the Oregon game (and most games but the Oregon game had the most famous example). In the end I think Pepper will be a nickel more than a linebacker but once again his coverage skills are average at best so this may be a problem.

With all the big targets visiting this weekend I hope we have as many commits as possible show up as well to bond with the targets and help pull them in. 

Comment 14 Jun 2016

Im really excited about Pryor's potential and it is great to see that he is so firmly committed and also becoming social with his classmates and possibly a leader.

Interesting tidbit I haven't heard elsewhere (but might have missed it in a previous Hurry Up) from Dave Biddle (yes, I know many people on this site dislike him but there is no particular reason to not believe his information in this case) about Tyjon Lindsay.  Biddle says that the parents of Lindsay and Martell had a falling out.  The players themselves are still friends but this could be a hurdle in Lindsay's recruitment.  Also it might be part of Birm's hesitancy to predict Lindsay to OSU.

We need to lock Okudah up so that he can start really working on his Texas friends and fellow defensive backs.  If I was a top recruit like Shaun Wade I would have to feel great about my chances to shine in a secondary with players like Okudah and Pryor getting my back from the safety position.  Plus both of those guys have great size and have potential to be great in the run game as well  

It is amazing how far the defense has come since 2013 when we had Pitt Brown at safety.  Not meaning to pick on him specifically, but we are getting to the point where the roster will have very few poor options top to bottom, let alone great starters. 

Comment 13 Jun 2016

That tweet seems very sarcastic and a positive for OSU (not so much a positive new development but confirmation of what we already knew). If Lindsay ends up anywhere else I'll be shocked.
