"Up and down season," deserves one more word ahead of that description. Another up and down season. Too much budget and facilities to be horrid.
So we didn't prepare Johnston for best shot at an NFL career? Always wanted his roll outs to be a kick/ run keep option given the down and distance. That never matured. He alledgidly had the speed for it. Now did his speed translate or able to use on football field is another question. It sure didn't vs psu on tackle attempt. He looked more like a fire fighter sliding down a pole.
Arkansas is in the SEC (Arkansas cop).
So he wasn't fast enough to turn the corner vs our DEs (Hubbard especially). Now,even with a head start, he can't outrun an Arkansas cop or even shrug his tackle. System QB for sure.
Attempt to flee currently charged as a felony
Thompson did that vs Illinois "talent." I'd imagine in one of the nations poorest states he didn't have elite coaches as school districts probably aren't paying six figures for HS coaches there. I wish him luck as it's against the best this country has to offer. Welcome Dylan to what we call life.
This commissioner must not be a true Texan? Piosen something, rather than hunting? Grow a pair or move to -ichigan!
Agreed. Accomplishments aside, you can take one look at Stud and Bentley and see who the harder worker is and who kids can actually believe their words and be inspired.
Weather isn't an excuse for being fat anymore (Cbus, Boston, Toronto). Unleash your talent young man. Your only job is to be a world class athlete.
Hill gets drafted? He can't push the line or hold the point of attack at college level. Too slow off the snap. If he does get drafted, it'll be to play in Canada.
That's a recruiting tool for Wis, to tell kids they'll get to go play in Jerry's World. Telling them they're gonna get at least 2 trips to Evanston, Bloomington, Lafayette, East Lansing, Iowa, Lincoln, New Jersey, Maryland, Happy Valley, Champagne, Minnesota, none sound appealing as destination games. So having that "neutral" OOC makes some of the upcoming 4 years look more exciting besides just Bowl/ playoff games as destination games
Agreed. Clowney being healthy became an All Pro and the position change due to Watt being hurt and so much depth at OLB, the experiment of making him a stand up 3-4 OLB is over. I think the above poster saying this Garrett would be Clowney 2.0, like it's a bad thing might not be paying attention to one of the best defensive players in football this last year. Watch the two playoff game. Clowney and Mercilus destroyed the Raiders and then the Patriots had no answer for blocking either, too. Brady took a beating
Tell recruits you're going north in November and throw away one of your appeals?? I can't stand them but as a recruit, I'd love to know coming in I'm also getting chance to go to Jerry's world, Atlanta, Houston, as OOC games included with annual bowl trips , etc...
Same could be said got Oregon. They were relying on scheme and being fresh coming out of week conference play vs competing to bring in top recruiting class.
Michigan state thinking they continue to catch lightning in the bottle and not even come close to elite recruiting, kills them. Spend money to make money.
In pre-Urban days Tressel lost recruiting battles to Mizzou. Most notably Jeremy Maclin.Props to Urban for stating would should always be the case in comparison of these two schools
Don't we still have Alford and UT has Drayton?
Kids will unite as one if coaching staff develops that no matter where they are from. Since article was mentioning michigan, is there heart or majority of team from that talentless state? Was it when they owned us in the Cooper days? Those less talented wolverine teams came and out- heartted those massively talented Buckeye teams.
Having players from multiple regions can lead to compitition in training and practice in pride to represent your brand of ball or where you're from.
I doubt he brought it on a plane with him. We better do our do dilegence on the whole campus . Or for The whole state of Ohio. Takes two to tango
Or does anyone hear/care about what's going on in Minnesota ?
Good to see another public school kid outta Texas. I've questioned everytime (although only happen twice Mitchell and Knox) why are these kids playing private school ball in Texas? The public school kids play for full time coaches making 6 figures and in stadiums nearing $100 mill, against at least dozen or more eventual D1 kids every game. That is not the case at private schools down there that don't receive the oil tax contributions (education set up as huge tax break for oil companies down there encouraging hundreds of millions a year donated). So good to see this kid didn't run from competition and flourished vs top competition. Seems highly intelligent. Will flourish as a Buck.
Congrats, Vrabs. Texans grooming their next head coach.
He's either really needed on offense or no future on D to be leaving a secondary that just lost 3/4's of its starters.
Number one, without their best player for most of the year.
Whitney Mercilus, too. Who had another 2 sacks Saturday.
