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?

Comment 30 Jul 2016

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.

Comment 29 Jul 2016

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.  

Comment 22 May 2016

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.  

Comment 16 May 2016

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.

Comment 13 May 2016

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.

Comment 14 Jan 2016

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.

Comment 14 Jan 2016

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.

Comment 23 Dec 2015

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.

Comment 23 Dec 2015

Although I think Austin didn't make the best decision(though he is young and influenced by his dad), I wouldn't blame the start on him. The whole team played with a completely different type of energy and intensity on defense. That was a team improvement and I don't think you can credit that to one player or one departure.

Comment 21 Dec 2015

Kentucky may not be up to the level of some of their recent squads right now but they are still an extremely talented team with multiple 1st round picks on their roster and I'm pretty certain they'll make a deep run when the postseason comes. Huge win that greatly improves tOSU's chances at making it to the NCAA tournament this season with solid conference play.
