And after stuffed on that 4th down play, which every time we showed the formation under center with Beanie Dotting the I, we were running a dive that. Very open and new plays in playbook vs scUM to get there. And slammed shut once there. Woulda been fine with that if it was to expose their DTs and pass rushing DEs but we thought we were suddenly Texas Tech in a chuck and duck. I remember getting down a couple scores, coming back out and hammering Pittman and like only four plays latter we're in the end zone. D holds, forces a punt and come back out and abandon that and throw 3 straight incompletions and put D right back on field and game was over after that.
Cause we were 9 or 10 point favorites in that FLA game.
Need explosive players with speed that attack the rim.
I'll agree he's no also ran. He's a never ran. He can do all the early work with a recruit he wants but if Saban, Urban, Dabo or Jimbo get involved and walk in the same living room, the kid will forget Riley was ever there.
I thought I've read on here in months prior that another QB (one of Mayfield's back ups), got in some legal trouble as well as a starting corner was kicked off the team for legal troubles as well (burglary I think)? This articles states these are the only two troubles.
Lincoln Riley puts lots of players in the league as first rounders. NOT! Oklahoma as a whole does not, anymore.
His next recruit to go in the first round, will be his first.
Coach O is that Waterboy coach no one could understand in overalls. Texas doesn't need Louisana talent as much as Louisiana has always needed Texas talent (or kids that can stay academically eligible). Not that LA doesn't have talent. The most talented high school teams I've seen across this country were in LA but because they could recruit, kids could live outside boundaries including the Texas kids that were commuted in from East Texas and those brought in to play and parents provided homes purchased for them until service completed. In short, if there's a fence to be built, Texas doesn't need Lousy-Anna (see after every hurricane rebuilds) But Lousy-Anna needs Texas (and federal help).
Going to far might be the current sign ups again for summer football. pads. But there's no substitute for game reps. People used to say the year round in multiple leagues at the same time through out the city was too much baseball. They don't anymore with all the straight out high school millionaires (first rounders). You can put the whole city of Houston vs the rest of the country minus LA, CA, FLA, GA, and AZ and cities of SAN Antonio , Austin, Dallas and Ftworth and they'll have more top MLB draft picks . Get kids game reps in any sports.
Yes, and then the Saturday night game infront of as many eyes as possible. Exposure. West Houston vs East Houston.
I'd believe it because offense, play selection, and QB play was back to where it was during the Herman championship year, that night in Norman.
True on the development with clemson and FSU. I didn't think of that but very true
I'd throw in a game that used to happen. I think it helped no other football was on as I think it was always that Friday the day after Thanksgiving. Texas vs Texas A&M. Not saying a top all time but worth a mention.
Also always like -ichigan vs Notre lame, as I was always happy at least one of those bastards lost.
Take texting and driving away, good idea. Just don't take away our 80 and 85 mph speed limits on freeways.
Agreed, Seattle. A testimate to both those coaches as each sport crumbled once they left FLA. I'd be all for Donovan rather than this junior high coach we apear to be chasing.
duke seemed to get good in about late 1980's, Gonzaga much more recently, are two that come to mind
Aren't they all??
Gene, don't turn this into the circus hiring a football coach at -ichigan turns into every 4 years or so. Where to the rest of us, it looks like everyone is passing on the job until some one takes it and they say it was first and only choice the whole time.
He was hired the head coaching job or an assistant role?
True we're not currently those name programs, but at what point did any of those given programs put their foot down and go all in and commit to being and building to what they are today? Same could be said for many corporations that started out small.
Maybe it's an interview to be an OSU assistant coach??
"The Man That Sold the World," don't know pretty sure not one of Nirvana's original works but very much associated with them after that legendary MTV live acoustic performance. Once regarded as pioneers of the grunge and Seattle sound and THE best at their craft for a 4-5 year window. Thad was good but never regarded in that way. Not a good title.
I wanted Donovan, but now this dude telling OSU, "Over my dead body," now it's an exciting challenge. That's like a dude you barily know telling ya not to talk or even look at his girlfriend while he's away. Shoot, first thing you're gonna do after some one you don't know tells you what you can't do, is exactly what you're told not to do by that bozo and then some. Nail this coach!
I thought the program ended after lose to Sienna
