I just watched his HS highlights and man what an athlete. He was definitely a running threat at quaterback and picked off a ton of passes from the safety position but I only saw maybe two or three plays where he made a big play running someone down or tackling well as we now know him to do. Is there any footage or interviews that explains Fickells recruitment of Lee and how he ended up at the linebacker position? Or was it just a case of him getting on campus and then they put pieces together that he could be a linebacker?
My heart is saying Zach Boren, give him a full year at LB just because.. "He planted him like a cheap flower"
My head is saying Ted Ginn Jr. because I truly believe this years squad will prove the next man up mentality for the 11 players on each side of the ball. BUT our punt/kick return game is not on the same level as the rest of the team IMO. If we had #7 back there to house some returns this team would truly be a threat to score on virtually every play of the game. I hope going into this year the returner position will be a true open competition as it should be every year and we see someone step up and make some magic happen.
side not: I love how Ginn ran like a gazelle chased by a hungry lion... no wasted steps. Just long strides north and south.
I would really like to see Roby get a chance to show case his ability with our new defense. He was such a beast and that was when he was being told to stand 10 yards off the receiver and still made plays. I believe he would get 10 balls throw his way all year after he takes the first 4 back to the house early in the season. Now the safety can shift to the other than Roby side before the snap and pick up the number 2 deep route since the quaterbacks eyes will lock on one side of the field. Receivers would need more time to get open and Bosa and Lee would be getting pressure on the quaterback.
Attitude is everything!! I think its great to find a reason to have a "chip on you shoulder" even if it is to pretend to be angry about not going to Minnesota . LA is a great landing spot for him no matter when he was taken in the draft. #Loading...
lol upvote for that
Check the shirt out tho!
Only need 13 more helmet stickers before I can start handing them out myself :)
Maybe I'll spend the $1500 on the helmet and put them on there... Or do they come with them?
DAMN I love our helmets!
So they are working hard at disappearing in 2015 too? Nothing changed!
Holy shit Dale! Save some for the ducks.. lol
that's pretty much what happened.. lol
The link shows a picture with a flask as well. I see that it is not included in the four pack but where can I get one of those bad boys???
Have to guess all the bama followers also tune into Kiffin's Krimson Korner.
Nick Mangold is a class act.
I'm thinking they glued down the two bottles to the podium. Don't think someone a Coca-Cola hasn't notice his flailing.
This game is on the LHN now and caught my attention because of this post. They showed some behind the scenes locker room footage from half time. Mack Brown thought they were playing Ohio State!!! LOL Best part of his speech "there is going to be momentum changes, this is OHIO STATE"
Lol... hopefully he took the test before he walked out.
Kosta was a badass!!...I remember seeing urban say he lost his black stripe and just had the biggest smile on my face seeing all of you guys say Kosta who??? In high school he was infamous for walking around with a gallon of water at parties or wearing MMA gloves as a freshman practicing with the varsity. For the last few days every time I look at facebook its him lifting up a hot girl or letting a much smaller friend put him in a head lock...and we know why, he was a badass. You were definitely loved and sorry you were in so much pain bro RIP Kosta!
I am also excited about the running backs. I like what these ball carriers are bringing to the table. Nothing wrong with veterans wanting to bruise the big ten like Hyde did and young guys wanting to make a track race to the endzone everysnap. Best part is EZE looks like the best of both.
Good news?!! woohoo... now I wonder how well Braxton can throw left handed?
