never too late. I agree Hubbard would have been a fine specimen at TE, but I'm not sure how well he does at catching the ball. I would only want him to make the move if he can compete as a receiver.
at 6'6'', I'm pumped to see what he will do as a walk out linebacker. He is the size of a TE so that means he can match up against some of the better TEs in college. Probably just as fast as the best ones out there too. Would be a nice weapon to have against guys like Nick O'Leary.
gotcha. I don't think he will do a medical redshirt then. Too bad he did play a bit, a regular redshirt would have been the way to go but I agree that he would be taking to much of a risk trying to get a med RS.
they certainly wouldn't find 70+ virgins at the strip club, that's for sure! (actually, not even 1)
could you imagine last year with the offense scoring 50+ ppg, what a top 50 pass defense could have done? Might not have won the whole thing but I bet they would have been in the Championship game!
I wrote something similar below. Tackling is so important.
and I agree, even with a situation dictating prevent defense is the best defense, still bring some pressure so the QB doesn't have all day to make a play. I think some of the third down completions VT got they made a mistake not keeping the pressure on and it hurt them.
I would also like to add that tackling is key to this defense as well. I think the biggest part of the stat of ZERO plays for more than 20 yards has to do with proper tackling techniques being implimented. These young DBs might not have the cover 4 style down yet, but they are showing marked improvement in their tackling and reaction.
I think Cincy will really test them but I think they will do fine. Even when Brewer for VT was completing all those 3rd down plays, he made some unreal plays to get some of them and there were lots of defended balls on the first two downs including a couple INTs. Even on their worst day, they still looked 10X better than last years best day!
and it was at maximum attendance!
I don't think the conversation is stating specifically "medical" redshirt. I believe Heuerman is eligible still for a standard redshirt.
I like his TD play. he came in for that jet sweep pass and his next move was a lateral leap into the endzone. It was so beautiful.
and of course this little ditty from last year by Eze!
