It is for any change of play at the line, where the lineman are already in their stance and have to be verbally told the play call (Peyton Manning does this all the time, as an example).
I disagree wholeheartedly with the statement that the coaches will mix in some R Smith for short yardage situations. While perfectly logical, they have yet to do so, using Elliot on all of our short yardage plays. Urban talks about Rod earning himself carries but they never seem to happen. He earned himself 2 carries against Kent. He's the most physically gifted fullback we've ever had, because that's what they've turned him into. Another blocker.
That's ok, he's probably planning on bailing at the half for a better job, of course he's not worried.
"Free job as an incompetent AD when you double your purchase to 4!! We will throw in the smarmy attitude at no extra charge!!! But wait...IT GETS BETTER!!!! Order in the next 8 weeks and you get this Adidas abomination jersey ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!"
Probably, but it really depends on the next week or two. From all outward appearances, he appears to be losing the team. If that's true, their 2-2 is going to become 4-8 pretty quickly. If it isn't true and they rally, he MIGHT get another year if he beats us or Sparty and they make a bowl. And it's not like they've been that far off from beating us the last two years.
I mean, they can't really say "crush a 14 year old Asian kid", so...
Cuz NEXT year the tight end is REALLY going to be featured in the offense.
More importantly, that porn star said "see you at the draft" to him. He's going pro
Unless they physically steal your big cardboard picture boards, stop whining and practice your red zone offense. And your kicking game for that matter; what a shit show that was.
Florida. Recruiting pool is so much better, and most importantly, it's not located in Michigan.
I thought he looked slippery all year, and was shocked that the punter got him down. Hoping for big things, I like this kid a lot. He certainly looks the part.
My favorite part of this thread is that there have been like 4 pick 6's vs PSU listed and that's only half of them! Haven't even listed a Morelli or Moxy McGloin effort yet.
The Canadian Football League? I'd say less important because the goalposts are on the goal line.
Serious question: does Hilliard play outside? Thought I remember him being a SLB? So he'd be in Josh Perry's spot?
Might large leap there. Read more on the lines and less between them.
Can we just put 5 in and take Grant out on passing downs (likely every down vs UC)? He (Grant) is great coming downhill against the run, but still struggles in coverage and in space. Raekwon seemed to move more quickly, or at least make up his mind more quickly.
There was a play in the Rose Bowl that TP totally hung him out to dry and he got flipped and landed on his head. I was so used to him catching everything that I was shocked when he dropped the ball. Anyone else I'd have been shocked if they caught it.
Ginn or Sanzenbacher. Ginn was so electric, we haven't had a gamebreaker close to that since he left. Sanzenbacher was just tough, caught everything, always got a first down.
90,000 sets of shitty drawers. Welcome to Happy Valley!
I'm curious as to how many of those yards have come on either touch pass jet sweeps, swing passes to RBs, or WR screens. Seems like the yardage stats are artificially inflated by that stuff.
Likewise when I rewatch him underthrow Devin Smith against VT, which let the defender catch up and prevent the TD...and we shank a field goal and get zero points out of it. Not quite as bad as not giving him a chance, but he needs to get better at the deep ball, that really hurt us.
In his defense, the product has been pretty bad
This is spot on, and made me laugh.
Offense had 3 turnovers (including a pick 6), so it's a little bit their fault.
Pro teams throw to their D-lineman more than we throw to our TE
I find the outrage about this fairly ridiculous. He saw they were lined up wrong on a 4th down so he called a timeout to fix it. He can't predict the ensuing touchdown. Only a horrible coach would allow a 4th down play to snap when he's not comfortable with the presnap look.
