Same here. Fortunately we have computers and "Control+F."
Like Joey Bosa, coach (Larry) Johnson and all the old guys really helped me out.
LOL at "all the old guys" in their early 20s.
Yes. First game of the season and OSU will be breaking in a new right tackle. While not nearly as big a change as replacing 80% of the line it only takes a breakdown at one position in the line, either in execution or communication. VT's ends are good and the Hokies will probably be coming in at full strength. I have no doubt that, if healthy, Chase Farris will be performing at a high level this season but it may not necessarily be the case in the first game. It may not be raw Taylor Decker versus Khalil Mack, but Farris will be facing very high quality counterparts.
I don't think the Bucks will put up the numbers on O that many seem to be anticipating. OTOH, barring turnovers and special teams breakdowns, I do expect VT to find the points much more difficult to come by this year. Last year their QB seemed to have his game of the season and he just barely got away with some ill-advised throws. Something like that should not happen this year.
Damn. Just beat me to it. Have an upvote.
I wanted to give you another for having Ohio State speed but I'm limited to one.
I don't think it's a big deal either but the above is a false dichotomy.
If this happened with a microphone shoved in his face then all it probably says is he isn't good at phrasing under pressure. Or maybe he just doesn't care.
Edit: In response to "What's he supposed to say ..."
Read like fiction to me and my BS alarm was going off even louder after following the links and reading some of his other stuff.
Yes. The injuries were a major factor for them last year. Also, outside of the Miami game no loss was by more than 7 points, despite the issues they had. A lot of close losses leading to a mediocre record. Where have we seen that before?
I'd love to see the Bucks beat them down but I think folks that expect OSU to walk in and wax them are setting themselves up for disappointment. I expect a hard-fought game.
It was actually gold.
The first half was uneven but fun. The second looked like a 2 vs 10 seed.
The Bucks shot 38.5% for the game. 'Zona shot 36.5%. If I hadn't watched it I wouldn't have believed they lost by 15.
Each team with 10 FT attempts, but the Wildcats have outrebounded the Bucks by 15 and have 16 more shot attempts.
Off day and he looks like he is pressing.
The defense has been good enough to win the game. Too bad this team is so reliant on one player to score and he is having an off game.
Having a guard that can't make an open jumper is a killer.
I assume this is what Thad wanted from the zone earlier in the year. It is the most active I have ever seen it.
Guys who the next game have the same shots less contested and can't find the bucket to save their life.
It took place on campus. I wonder he could be kicked out of the school.
If Hammons is coming to block the shot, obviously Amir, Trey or Anthony will be open,” Scott said. “So we’ve got to find a way to get them the ball.”
Then they have to catch it without fumbling it away, not bring it down where it can be stripped and then go up and dunk instead of finessing it and watching it roll around the rim and fall off.
Piece of cake.
My guess would be Sperry Topsiders, a boat shoe.
obviously single games between two teams shouldn't be used to determine who is better.
Unless the SEC team wins.
I'm not outraged but I do think his repeated references to this are tiresome and juvenile.
Oregon handily beat Stanford and MSU this year. I know that, record-wise, it was a down year for Stanford but they still looked physical to me when I watched them against Maryland. Most of their losses were in low-scoring, close games. Oregon put up 45 on them, No one else came close to that.
This team is not constructed to play in the B1G. The only physical player is Tate and he is often giving up 3+ inches.
More like a trampled stamp.
Johnson did a very good job as he did not have the depth he wanted for most of the season with the loss of Spence, Marcus and Rashad's Frazier's injuries.
But he had the line there at the end of the year. The second line was critical to the Buck's success in the playoffs. I didn't see the same push as the starters but they held their own at the LOS and that is plenty good enough when you are going up against the first string of high-caliber opponents.
With Fickell, just pointing to Grant's improvement these past 2 years and the job he did identifying Darron Lee and converting him from QB to LB should be proof enough of his coaching abilities.
