We are seeing a lot more "hybrid" QB's in the NFL these days, guys that have a good arm but are also opportunistic runners. So, the cliche that only a pocket passer can thrive in the NFL is no longer applicable. Granted, BMill has to improve his passing, if he could do all season like he did a few games in the middle of last season that would be great for him AND the team. HOWEVER ... it's in his DNA to run, I don't think it will be Troy Smith senior season part II, it's what he does and he'll still put up some big running yardage stats I think. Tampabuckeye85's prediction looks pretty reasonable IMHO.
Great coach and a better person who made a mistake in judgement, and I sincerely believe it was to protect the kids, but of course more cynical folks will disagree. Hell of a resume, man, makes me feel like an underachiever.
And Fuke Duke too!
Wow, I guess that's something in / near the brain. Perhaps waiting for 15 years to have it done was in hopes the surgical technique would improve considerably over time. As the old joke goes, it's only minor if it's being performed on someone else. He probably had it done at the University Hospital, a world class facility. Hope it went well and you have a speedy recovery coach!
Of course kids want to go to UK, what's the matter with you guys, they have a long and storied tradition and ... oh wait, we're talking about football.
This season's team is an enigma wrapped in a puzzle. All it takes is a little luck and a couple of guys starting to hit some shots. It happens in the NCAA sometimes, a team that was struggling and borderline gets rolling at the right time. There is always hope, will be interesting to see how the bucks respond over the next few games. A win over MSU would be a huge confidence booster.
For sure, at this point just let ADV jack it up as soon as it hits his hands and try to get some offensive rebounds if it take a couple of tries.
I love Aaron Craft the person and defensive player but he has ZERO percent chance of playing in the NBA, medical school would be a much better option for him.
Yogi is a mighty fine basketball player ...
I'll echo what others have ... tOSU is Wide Receiver U and is an NFL and sports broadcaster "factory". Buckeye Nation is the largest fanbase in the world, Columbus is one of the nicest white collar cities in the midwest ... the bucks have the best facilities and coaching in CFB ... would seem like a great fit for CK and a win-win for everyone.
It’s kind of flattering, if you think about it. Penn State basketball has been so dire for so long that the prospect of beating one of Ohio State’s most mediocre teams in the Thad Matta era is worthy of delirium among its proponents.
Great line Michael.
But no relation to "Ah Nuts!"
Good stuff, very interesting. Must read for Nick Saban.
So Birm, how's the 2016 and 2017 recruiting classes shaping up?
Some advice for Mikey:
Most looking forward on the offensive side to see if Brax can be a more consistent passer, he had a couple of great games in the middle of the season where I thought he had that aspect of his game all figured out, also excited about what EZE can do, and finally what a little bigger, stronger, more experienced Dontre Wilson can do. We have some fantastic freshmen coming in, but assuming only one or two of them will have a real impact their first season (Nuernberger might be the exception, and perhaps Raekwon McMillan and/or Johnnie Dixon).
Hopefully this is not true. If so, perhaps Aaron Craft can tutor him a bit.
I was at the Schott a couple of seasons ago for the Duke game. The entire building was literally shaking. I read afterwards that it was measured (who knew they measured?) as the loudest decibel level ever in that building. I did attend a couple of games back in the old days in SJA ... to let you know how old I am ... the guys out on the floor included Al Hornyak and Luke Witte. It did have a great atmosphere and was a classy place on the inside.
Then of course there is this famous Assembly Hall moment:
Great explanation Nellie, thanks. Seems odd they don't let players finish matches, just for the experience and playing time, but I guess the thought is to keep the matches at as reasonable time as possible and save some wear-and-tear on the players. The no ad scoring in itself really speeds things up.
Have a lot of respect for the military academies, pound-for-pound they are as tough as anyone. Navy typically has the strongest football program and they're a tough out. That said, GO BUCKS let's start the season strong with a convincing victory. Hope Brax has a great season with really good balance passing and running, our secondary is much stronger, and all those super recruits have a chance to shine.
Maybe one game every other season on a Friday night to garner a little extra TV attention and have a little different atmosphere would be OK.
Would be sweet to land one of these guys! Locksley seems like a long shot, I would imagine he'd go where his dad coaches.
