I'll take a 'game manager', all day/every day.
Urban SAYS a lot of things.
His eyes go up, yours go up.
His arms go up, yours go up.
This excerpt taken from The Rill Dill Coaching Manual---101
Its's going into the FOURTH season of this. Coombs wasn't there for one of them. Any guesses?
Hey.......they've only been working on the defensive backfield's problems for four YEARS. It takes time.
You are both talking about a few minutes of an entire game. Pay attention to some SEC games. The shit hits the fan for four quarters, regardless of opponent.
Fred Pagac left the building a long time ago.
Does anyone have stats on how much yardage our defense has given up (per game), since 2011?
Their quarterback is hurt----CJ Brown.
Nothing quite cranks a crowd up, like-------
Cincinnati had the ball for 18 minutes and change. They scored 28 points, and went for 450 yds. That is all.
.......it was a lazy defense, expecting a handoff and not a bomb.
You just summed up the entire Big Ten philosophy. Killer instinct is lacking in most of the league.
Yes, I agree it was 'rookie' mistake.....BUT, that technique is taught at age 8 to biddy league players. Roby was also very bad on this in his freshman year. It has to be coached, every day. The coverage was there. The ballhawking, not so much.
Yes. It is lackluster, except for OBVIOUS cheering scenarios-----3rd and long, big plays, etc. It has ALWAYS been this way. The same goes for basketball. I always hear how The'Shoe is a nightmare for other teams to play in, especially at night. I just roll my eyes. There have been very few exceptions to this rule. Just the way it is-----pretty lame, in general.
Wait a minute. Cincinnati is UNRANKED. How 'very good', can they really be? The 3 plays you mentioned, were worth TWENTY ONE (18) points. That is REAL. Was there marked improvement in several areas-----YES. Was this a BIG win, in a BIG game-----NO. I'm not bashing the team, but facts can not be overlooked, either.
I'm not sure if he'd accept that, or not.
Wait.........Hoke gets paid?
.....that's dope, bro.
I've had that same feeling in my gut for the past three seasons. BUT, we did manage to get some 'key' stops last night. I see improvement overall, but just not in all areas. We can't take the three BIG plays off the board, as they are most definitely part of the game, but improvement is there---nonetheless. Strap in, it may be bumpy. I think the defensive 'style' that most of us want to see, and miss greatly, is becoming a thing of the past. NO team has a stellar defense, any more. I know-----that shouldn't mean that WE can't, but I can't see it in the near future.
I HATE spread offenses. They are nothing more than 'flag football' BS, to me. BUT, they ARE here to stay. For how long, who knows? Since this is what we are going to face on a VERY regular basis, we absolutely HAVE to learn to defend it. The 'spread' was innovative when it began. Now, it's time to be the team that was 'innovative' in stopping it. I hate these offenses, but that doesn't negate the fact that 95% of today's teams run it (or some hybrid of it).
That is called, re-routing. It is very effective in disrupting 'timing' routes. I'd like to see this done on every play. It should be taught, and learned-----at the 101 level.
I do not have a link, but I read that he was not even in attendance.
Team 135, Ohio, man ball, Michigan man.........game over.
I think Evan Spencer can fill that order, if used more often.
I read that we ran over a HUNDRED plays. That'll work.
