Royals injuries really hurt them this year. I expect they'll still win 85 games, though, unless they tank the season and start unloading players before they all hit free agency. I don't see the Royals as having a chance this year to make or go far in the playoffs.  

Knowing Dayton Moore, they'll unload some players and look to build the pitching back up for 2017 and beyond. They have talent coming along in the minors, but more position players than pitches. Moore will look to rectify that while keeping the core together and keeping the team competitive and poised to make another World Series run again in 2017, 18, or 19 at the latest. 

Dayton more makes smart, not panicky, choices (usually).

Part of my original point is that we are referring to Samuel as "small" when he's 5'11 & 200lbs.

Webber is supposed to start but he's only 5'10" and 215.

And if you look at the video link above of the two side by side, Webber actually looks 2 -3 inches shorter than Samuel. 

I think as someone said above, Samuel's measurable safe comparable to Jamaal Charles.

He is a man of many talents. And with all the injuries last year I think that even hampered his development at HB.

I'd like to see him have a position or at skill set/set of plays he really gets to develop and thrive in.  He could go to the next level that way.

I agree that there is a lot we could do with shades of gray. While I didn't mind the all-whites, I thought they looked really clean, I couldn't help but thinking an all light gray set-up would be preferable. And rather than all black - charcoal or other form of dark gray would be preferable, too.

I still love the first 1954 throwbacks. I know they're an "interpretation" not and exact copy but I think they're fantastic. I wish we'd wear them more often. The only thing that can make them better is to make the helmet gray and not white.  The other "historical" jerseys weren't very creative or artistic in my opinion. NIKE was weak there. The chrome helmets and gray number jerseys were creative. I like the all-white version the best. The black jerseys were boring, never understood why they didn't go with charcoal or some other darker shade of gray and the red helmet sticker were ugly - I wish those were reflective silver instead. Finally, I agree with almost everyone who says our 2015 national championship jerseys verses Oregon should be our regular home jerseys.  In the end, i am thankful though that we are with NIKE and not Adidas.

Great idea.

Mediocre execution. The black outline white modern looking numbers over the gray stripes doesn't look great.  

Get some old fashioned numbers (like the ones we used in 2009) and either have a small front number on the right front shoulder OR have the number in the center but not in top of the stripes. Have the stripes around it. 

Try a little harder, NIKE.

I am still a fan of Danny Clark. He'll have time to develop behind Burrow and Haskins. With our limited numbers, I'd prefer to take only one QB in this class. Maybe send out a good greyshirt offer or preferred walk-on offer to somebody to be the 4th string QB. 

The reason we are considering 2 QBs in this class is because it's highly likely JT will enter a weak NFL QB draft next year (presuming he has a year similar to two years ago). Not because Danny isn't good enough for OSU. If the staff felt like Danny should look elsewhere, I think they'd be upfront with him. 

That being said - I think Tate has that "IT" factor that may just separate him from other prospects. I think that it will be awhile before he gets a chance to start here, though. I'm not sure he'd be down with waiting. Mond is really good and has a lot of natural gifts (size, arm strength, athleticism) - and the staff could develop him over 2-3 years.

He saw Mickey Mitchell went to UCSB and realized he made a terrible mistake going to Norman, OK.  

I'd play college ball in Santa Barbara.  Wouldn't doubt he ends up there.
