I fully expect Kent State to mimic what VT did defensively.. Maybe they don't have the athletes in the secondly but I would expect them to try an exploit OSU's weaknesses.
Must be a Browns exec..
Curtis Grant got pulled at some point vs navy..
JT played great, just one real mistake.. Was there any targets for a TE?
Seemed like there a general consensus before: Get out of Baltimore with a win and healthy.
That happened and I think there were a lot of positives. Excited to see this team grow.
Rod Smith missed some blocks that could've sprung some big plays
I'd like to see a breakdown of the offensive line by position as the game progressed.. Pat E started on the left, then moved back to right? Hale moved in.. Interested to see if Ed has it figured out
3 for John Thomas
I'm with you DJ.. Truck balls are terrible
Ron Swanson is auto up vote
Bought my wife a pro combat #2 and she was 'stoked!'.. It's been on the same hook in the closet for 2 years.. Apparently it's not even hanger worthy to her.. It's one season away from being re gifted..
Hope Lebrons schedule is cleared..
We know Urban loses on guys he wants annually. A lot of time losing sticks with you more. While you're proud of a class you wish it had those 3-4 guys that you missed, and probably would've made you #1..
No mention of Russell? Besides the TO's (based on the BS) he played flawless..
Excited to see Kam, can't go another year without shooters..
I don't understand this culture, and I know it's not just professional athletes.. But how does this happen? It's not an option, it'll never be an option.. Take a deep breath and walk away..
I just watched all those replays on BTN yesterday. I get what you all are saying but it's hard for me to say anything positive about anyone involved with our defense..
However, I believe defenses are really at a disadvantage in today's game and I think they're still in catch-up mode across the sport. Especially when facing an offense like our own.
We've been spoiled with outstanding defensive units in the past. Hopefully this group (coaches and players) can put together a unit that can takes us to Indy and beyond..
Great to hear we'll be one of his officials! Really need UFM to close on this kid. He'd be a huge recruiting win, type of kid that makes a QB look great..
Really excited to see the fresh faces.. Hope D Russ can be an elite guard right away.. Hope Marc Loving had (is having) a great summer.. Bigs need to take a giant leap, all starts now! New year, new team!
They've been talking up this rotation of D linemen which sounds like a logical way to promote production and health. My only concern is how you plan on doing this with up tempo offenses setting even loftier (number of plays) goals annually.
I don't doubt LJ and defensive staff can do it, I guess I'm just excited to see it in action.
I like the Ibaka comparison. This fiilm makes me nervous. I get his strengths are finishing and protecting the rim but I want a back to the basket scorer. Our program has had a lot of success with bigs that can create and I'm always expecting/hoping to see the next.
Wonder what the U17 staff didn't like or didn't see that left him off the squad..
Still excited he's a Buck and can't wait to see him play next year. Hope Oak Hill has a lot of nationally televised showcases.
I think Urban is just keeping certain units on their toes. We know he's not afraid to praise certain groups for different things (focus, work ethic, trust, togetherness, etc..), but he needs to see it consistently on Saturdays. The off season work needs to translate into tangible production.
I agree with Spielman on the fact that the line will make the unit better. I loved playing linebacker in a 5-2, see ball - get ball. Once I got older having people in my face changed everything. Wasn't until I moved to safety I truly understood how linebackers need to read keys to put themselves in position to make plays. If one or more of our thoroughbreds up front demands a double team, watch out.
The D lines dominance should and will hopefully have a 'trickle back' effect and make the whole D dominant.
I think as long as the 'gurus' and coaches technique beliefs are aligned there isn't much of an issue. From my experience coaching; 2-3 coaches can be preaching the same thing but one will use verbage that just makes things click.
Plus going out to (stay classy) San Diego in Braxton's case must be a pretty cool way to get away while maintaining focus on his goals.
All I can say is wow.. Precise route running, gets great separation and appears to have excellent straight line speed.
At 6'2" - 205 he's the type of athlete we need on the outside. Hope UFM can close on this kid.
I know there's only 3 stars next to Tyler Green's name but I think he's got what it takes to be special. Seems to want to work out and learn at every opportunity. Excited for his future..
