I've always wondered what impact Tiger Ellison had on Woody's offense in the 1960s...Ellison joined the staff in 1963 and is credited with creating the run-and-shoot offense.
This is the game that got me hooked on Ohio State football. I was in 4th grade and watched it on TV...when the Buckeyes took the field, it looked like Woody dressed 150 guys, wave after wave of players. Buckeye fan from that moment onward.
2-0 since Thad went back to wearing a necktie
Hiring AD Mark Coyle was huge...Minny hasn't had a competent AD in decades...and from what Fleck said today, Coyle was a big reason why he took the job.
As of tonight, six WMU verbals have been offered and flipped to the Gophers.
And he got it done with 3-star, 2-star and 1-star talent.
Exactly. And I see Indiana hired Mike DeBord as its new OC. ;-)
Exactly. Hard to understand.
An example of the "grab bag" of plays is JT going under center and then Samuel getting the ball on a jet sweep. That play has zero connectedness to the rest of the offense.
Yes. Three things that are very disturbing:
-- 21 of 27 called passes. That's Air Raid stuff.
-- Urban not knowing that the offense was so out of whack; and
-- Straying so far away from the game plan in the first half of a competitive game.
Downhill running has been the foundation of this offense for five years. Beginning in 2015, the offense became less of a system and more just a grab bag of plays. The disappearance of counter plays in 2016 is an example of how the offensive system of 2012-2014 was discarded. Tonight was the complete abandonment of anything that looked like a system.
And the 11W Dry Goods t-shirts are printing themselves.
Kyle Kalis made second team? Someone at AP has a good sense of humor.
Been wondering about this all season...should be a fixture of our scheme
"He's no J.J. Watt." --no-nothing NFL Draft pundits
I heart Larry Johnson
On Twitter I asked Ari Wasserman about it. His reply:
"Conley talked after. I think he just got the wind knocked out of him."
Did Conley play in the OT?
Check out the game-winning sack. Tyquan Lewis was held on that play, too. Wisky has held on nearly every play for the past 25 years.
Tracy Claeys will be gone after this season. He's clearly in over his head. New AD didn't hire Claeys. Attendance is bad (Iowa game wasn't a sellout). And the buyout for Claeys is small
He's UFM to me.
I hate Taboola, but that one's worthy of a click.
Kinnick Stadium is another place where there isn't much room between the field and the stands.
I think you're right.
Who was our first soccer-style kicker? I don't know the answer...was it Tom Klaban?
