Rudd is the most Brownsiest loss ever. I think that kicked off a three-loss streak that all had absurd endings.

I was at Soldier Field in 2001 for this one...left when Gardocki punted up 21-7 at the 2 min warning, then this:

4th 0:28 Bears Marty Booker 9 yard pass from Shane Matthews (Paul Edinger kick) 2114

0:00 Bears James Allen 34 yard pass from Shane Matthews (Paul Edinger kick) 21 21

OT 12:10 Bears Mike Brown 16 yard interception return 21 27

We're at an astounding three freshmen who've seen time this year. One saw non-special teams snaps (Prince) last week. EGW's participation was one kick coverage assignment when the game was out of reach. Ward is now playing on a couple of ST units...seems to benefit from Webb's suspension.

It's interesting to see the fans swallow Urban's "we play freshmen" mantra when the numbers of true freshmen playing have gone 15-9-11-3 in his four seasons.

I think Weber will see some snaps this year as the 2016 RB chart is a huge question mark right now. Presumably, Zeke is gone. I think Samuel will carry the load with Weber as his change of pace...we sub very little compared to other offenses so Dunn/Ball finish their careers on special units or are asked to leave after this season.

I think Webb only played kick/punt coverage before the suspension, so never saw the field with Marshall, who was on punt return.

That said, we got away with double numbers on the field three times last year vs Kent State:

-Dunn/Niehoff in 25. Niehoff switched into 8 for the rest of the game/season

-Dixon/Smith in 1. This was the only game Dixon played in 2014. The coaches put one of these guys in a blank #55  for the next punt which featured...

-Rod Smith/Webb in 7. Smith got booted a couple weeks after this game.

Not sure what's going on with Munger, but he's slipped behind Hill in the pecking order. WMU is the first game I've really been able to watch this season, but Kwon didn't have a great game. That's excusable given his age. 

I'm not sure about rolling a DE inside, that wasn't done at all in nickel situations this week. It was all about pulling Schutt for Burrows. Lattimore got one rep at nickel which went for a 55-yd TD. As usual with Urban, he played the same four DBs every snap of the game.

Comment 28 Sep 2015

Nah f him. Drevno has got Kalis and the whole line to play up to their potential, but Kyle plays really dirty. Check his clip against BYU in the third quarter...took out a lineman's knee. It was at the whistle, but the DL was ten yards away from the play. If he pulls that stunt against us, I hope Urban puts in the jumbo package just for retaliation. See how he feels with Schutt, Hale, Munger and Hill coming at him.

Comment 24 Sep 2015

I distinctly remember thinking "we get this much snow 5x a year in Cleveland and wouldn't cancel classes in high school."

And then busted my ass walking from Stradley to the Oval for the snowball fight. Wasn't even drunk (yet).

Who does this guy think he is, Doug E. Fresh?

Looked Sally in the face and decked her in the eye
Punched her in the belly and stepped on her feet
Slammed the child on the hard concrete

Comment 16 Sep 2015

USC played 13 freshmen this past weekend, with about a half-dozen getting the majority of snaps. NIU/WMU are a bit better than Idaho, but it'd be nice to see some pups getting some real time. Maybe against the B1G dregs?

Comment 14 Sep 2015

Yes, the article is true. Willoughby didn't play football in HS and was kick offs only at Duke. The ironic part is Duke's kicker (Ross Martin) is a stud that prepped at Walsh Jesuit. 3x All-ACC, 2x All-American, and he's taken on kickoff duties for 2015...though I see he's also put one OOB.

Second line, L-R:


Burrell is on line three with RS Fr Trout and his three fellow true freshmen -- Schmidt, Feder and Bowen.

Comment 12 Sep 2015

Prince was on XP last week, but he (and Knox, Brady Taylor) finally got a couple offensive snaps.

Debuts for Collier and Lattimore as well.

participation report lists Hamilton and Stump...Hamilton is def wrong as he was in sweats. Doubt Stump played either. 

Comment 11 Sep 2015

Prince was on XP unit (along with fellow debutants Knox & Lisle). Even on the WatchESPN app his size is apparent and there's no mistaking him for his number-mate Tyquan Lewis.

Comment 09 Sep 2015

Klatt is a bit behind the times, because Glenville isn't putting out guys like that anymore. No OSU signees this past Feb for the first time since 2001. Their four 1-A signees went to OU, Cinci, Illinois and BGSU. Rivals has no Tarblooder ranked in the c/o '16. Not that Meyer would kowtow to Ginn even if the pipeline was still in existence, but it's done.

Comment 08 Sep 2015

None that I saw. There were nine I spotted on the sidelines, including: McCullough, Ward, EGW, Conner, Baker, Burrell, Prince, Gibson and Hill. That was just first view of the game, I'm sure there were a few more...partly because the NCAA upped the limits (from 75 to 100) on the traveling squad to OOC games.
