In one game Curtis Samuel and Dontre Wilson combined for 5 touchdowns! Almost produced more in this one game than they did all last season. I guess they were finally telling the truth when they said they would truly feature the H-back position.
Your absolutely right that you can disable certain people from high levels of access. Which is why my mom thinks I just go around making nice comments on other people's profiles. What is living if you can't threaten to suffocate someone with their own entrails without your parents finding out?
McCaffrey even while getting Heisman hype has been underrated by some people. Call it east coast bias, call it an issue of people underestimating a white RB because of stereotypes; either way he hasn't gotten enough recognition for his accomplishments. People always mention he had more games than Sanders to break the record but what makes it more legit is that he did it in less touches than Sanders. The guy is not only elite as a runner, he is elite as a catcher and returner as well. Last year he scored as runner, receiver, punt returner, kick returner, and passer. He is just an explosive and skilled offensive weapon that does damage everywhere.
Outside of J.T. this is the guy I am rooting for to get some much deserved recognition.
I think that is likely to some extent but at that same time we don't have the playcalling depth Meyer used at Florida for the H-back position. With Harvin there were fake sweep dives(with the HB carrying the ball), HB/RB/QB triples options, HB/QB/TE triple options with fake jet sweeps, Fake jet sweep screens, etc. I suspect a big part of the reason we haven't had the same variety is that we've had the type of dominant workhorse RBs Florida never had(and no one who blossomed like Harvin at HB). Hyde and especially Elliot were some of the top producers at RB in all of college football.
Also keep in mind that despite all that has been said on the H-backs they have still been very productive...just not as much so as the HBs at UF. Dontre Wilson in 2013, Braxton Miller last season, and Curtis Samuel last season have all been productive from the position. All approached or surpassed 6 ypc and put up a decent amount of receiving yards.
What a sham this whole decision by the IOC has been. Their behavior is corrupt, slimy, and perfunctory; leaving the Olympics in absolutely disgusting conditions. And that is leaving out several words I can't use here but that are entirely fitting for what the IOC has done. They're greedily staring at the money they're pocketing rather than the terrible conditions they're putting everyone in to.
You've got basically sewage quality water, limited security, rampant crime looking to target the athletes, and the need for Olympic facilities to host distracting Brazil from its recession. On top of all of that you've got the problem with zika, though at least in that case it will have minimal effect considering it is currently winter in Brazil and zika is only transmitted through bites(and unprotected sex).
Jesus robbed is bad enough, but puked on? That's not even necessary. Also who the hell can just puke on demand?
I personally would like to see some of Samuel at RB, at least as the no.2 option. He was pretty effective when he got chances there as a freshman and I don't think Weber is ready to eat up even close to the percentage of RB plays Elliot was getting. Plus we've got a lot of depth of talent at HB with guys who should see playtime(Definitely Wilson, and maybe Campbell). There is no real no.2 at RB.
Hmm I guess I can see it a lot more after seeing some of his play. Obviously minus the post game and plus better handles than Leuer ever had. It has been a real long time since I watched him play against tOSU but I guess he is a lot more athletic than I remembered. Still wouldn't be the player I'd pick considering Young scores a decent amount comeback dribble moves while Leuer can pretty much only go towards the basket as a dribbler.
He reminds you of Jon Leuer? I mean I get they both shoot 3s and are forwards but other than that I don't see the similarity. Maybe he is still growing but Young is only 6'6"/6'7" while Leuer was 6'10". Leuer basically became a college center by the end of his career and led Wisconsin in blks/rbs per game.
Young doesn't have the size to play C and is questionable at PF too IMO. And I don't know if you've seen footage of Young but I don't think Leuer ever ran alley oop curl plays or brought the ball upcourt and broke someone's ankles with a crossover. Young's lateral quickness and athleticism is pretty clearly superior to Jon Leuer's especially considering he hasn't gotten college level fitness training yet. He'll probably play on the perimeter at SF in college. A closer comparison would be(though Young is obviously not near his level at this point) Gordon Hayward.
I wouldn't hold it against him at all if he came out. This is probably his best chance to get picked decently high. Most of the guys up against him in the next draft class just don't have the strengths where Barrett is questioned(arm strength, size, accuracy on deep throws). Watson will definitely be a high 1st round pick but I could see Barrett rising above several of the other guys listed above him.
I've noticed that..alot of their vocal fans seem to have just jumped shipped on their team for that title run.
Perhaps but Thompson was being physical pushing him with his arm the entire way down. They went for a no call but I expect we'll see that corrected to a loose ball foul when the NBA releases its review.
That is why I hate Curry. Acts so humble but beneath that veneer you see he is smug as hell.
So you've got almost certainly 4 other players on the court who shoot worse on FTs than Curry and your choice is to hack him? Lol thank god you're not drawing up strategies for Lue.
He is being an ass over a semantic difference. By last time he means last time they made the final four previous to this year(or in other words not counting this season).
Pics or it didn't happen
But seriously that is pretty awesome if true. It seems like Thad is targeting Ohio more regularly now and I wouldn't be surprised if he got an offer soon considering MSU gave him one.
We don't have to win the tournament IMO, but we almost certainly will have to beat MSU to get in. Looks like a tall task.....which is unfortunate because without some early season losses we may have been much closer to a spot in the tournament.
"Just like football" Yeah I agree, you'll look good in the regular season then choke when you face elite talent.
Damn you forced me to log in to my account....can't let a great Archer reference like this go by without an upvote!
With OSU I'm glad I have a football team that I can always look forward to(especially under Urban) and get excited about how the team will come together by the time the season starts. Meanwhile the Browns are on to another cycle of drafting a questionable QB in to the worst situation a QB can get for a new coach that will likely get very limited talent to work with.
Great game for Lyle. He still gets beat too easy sometimes on dribble-drive penetration but he has really come together as a PG on the offensive end. I love the way Kam Williams is playing. He really seems to have a different level of confidence in his shooting stroke, the guy is a sniper from the 3pt line right now.
He definitely needs to polish his game overall with things like finishing at the basket, shooting, and boxing out. As a passer though he has amazing vision and I see the 1 or 2 passes put on the feet as a result of inexperience playing with this team as well as his aggressiveness on passes. A lot of great passers initially have a high TO rate because teammates find it hard to anticipate their passes. Keep in mind he only played 9 minutes but had about 5 or 6 assist opportunities, his teammates just happened to shoot poorly on them.
I think this is the 1st time he has gotten a chance to play with the ball as the secondary ball handler on the court and you can see that is where he shines. He has also been a surprisingly solid defender aside from the touch fouls that have been called on him. Off-ball however, he still has a long way to go.
A lot of people see Weber pushing Dunn down on the depth chart but I'd love for Dunn to at least see a regular role in the rotation. I think he has a nice balance of speed and power that could make him very successful in Urban's offense.
He used to run a wide rotation at Florida, I think the recent disparity comes from the dominance of Elliot and Hyde. Maybe he will go back to that with the wide variety of playmakers we have and no clear no.1 option.
There are tweener guys that have been really successful with the small ball development in the NBA like Draymond Green(puke), Jae Crowder(double puke), and Demarre Carrol. I just don't think Tate even has their level of size and he probably isn't as athletic as Crowder or Carrol.
