I have never forgot about how great Braxton Miller is and how he can take over football games. I don't think anyone has. What is important to remember is that when we were forced to diversify our offense because of his absence, we became a much better offense. That doesn't mean Braxton can't come back and play QB differently...but if we want to compete with the great defenses in college football he cannot play the same way he did in 2012 and 2013. He must be able to make those tough throws in the pocket, throw guys open and make correct zone reads. Just out "athleting" people won't be enough.
I think in the passing game they will be. You don't replace a Devin Smith, but I think the total depth of guys coming back to contribute will be even better. What concerns me is if they will sell out to contribute to the running game like Evan Spencer did.

Back then landing was the most important part of the process!!
It's hard to tell. I think the more important question would be how fast would he be with modern training methods. During Owens time the methods were still very primitive.
Or like many gets lucky and inherits it. Ask Donald Trump!
With all of the attention getting paid to the QB situation, I think the average onlooker is forgetting about the freakish depth we have at RB too. At this point its pick your poison for defenses.
And me too...
That 1994 game would have been one for the ages. Both of those teams were great.
As much as the BCS championship was maligned, it would have gave us some great games in the 90's. 1991 Miami/Washington, 1994 Nebraska/Penn State, and 1997 Nebraska/Michigan would have been awesome games to witness.
From a talent level, yes. It all depends on what the players and coaching staff are able to do with it. Talent and ability doesn't always mean more success (see 2005 Ohio State). If they can stay healthy and consistent early and then hit their stride in November I have no doubt they'll be contending again.
I would be VERY surprised if this rumor is anything but a publicity stunt for the long off-season. None of the necessary variables are there for this to make sense.
Second that. Nightcrawler was one of the best I've seen in a while.
I thought it was a phenomenal movie with a very interesting concept. It's largely rooted in good science (as said before) and the concepts on time travel and multiple dimensions was amazing. I've never seen anything, at least in popular culture like it before.
At this point Baylor complaining about the playoffs is pointless. They couldn't beat MSU in a bowl game in their own state. The committee got it right...why is it so hard for him to understand that!
I may be in the minority, but I think that an 8-team playoff would greatly dilute the regular season games meaning. Rematches are possible now, but extremely unlikely in the 4-team but they'll almost become a certainty in an 8-team format. If you can't win your conference you shouldn't/can't be national champion...simple as that.
I am not worried at all about the defensive line after the spring. Our starters are VERY good, but our depth players look loaded with potential. I am still amazed at the size and length of some of these athletes we have.
I liked that it was pretty loose and humorous for the most part. I also like the fact that our team has met the last two Presidents and the TTUN hasn't met one since Bill Clinton Pre-Lewinsky scandal!
I heard the Secret Service is. The President needs to get through crowds faster and their run blocking is unstoppable!
Seriously Cooper! I can understand being upset by losing, but take your loss like a man. Don't make excuses, Alabama was beaten thoroughly by the better team. I have no problem with him implying that they'd win a rematch; that's what a good competitor does.
Next time, one item per person...
PUT IT IN H!
They were legitimate national title contenders all of those season. I looked up their stats and they absolutely dominated everyone up until The Game.
