I don't think it's talent. When I've rewatched the games and just focused on the oline...there are plays where some of the guys don't know who to block. When they know who to block they do just fine. I would say Price and Farris are both in this category. There were two plays in a row where Farris just missed his guy and touched no one. One of them was the shovel pass and Wilson would have had plenty of running room had Farris made his block. I would guess they are hoping the light goes on for one of these young men.

i don't see McMillan or Grant going to DE..even for passing plays. Grant get's tied up to much with blockers as it is and if his legs get hit he's down. I think we'll see more of Jalyn Holmes if anything. The guy just looks like a pass rusher. He did get kind of a bs late it call that even Millen said was touchy.

JT's special teams were solid for most of his career here..but for whatever reason we started to weaken. His last year and Lukes first year we were allowing returns. Wisky, Miami and Florida gashed us pretty good. I think we seeing a weakening in the recruiting..athletes play special teams like linebackers and safeties. And it's been on display on defense recently. I think that has been boosted..now we have a fr kicker and he's going through some growing pains

I was wondering the same thing. We've been bringing in speed guys like McLaurin, Clark, Wilson..ect. We need some big possession type guys as well. I do think Dixon and Thomas MAY be in that category. And I think we have to look at our receiver coach. He's a great recruiter but we keep seeing the same mistakes...guys catching with their body..not catching at a  high point...difficulty getting off bump/run coverage

<Hell, I'm struggling to remember Devin catching a short or intermediate pass>

Didn't Devin catch the pass on the first play of the game Saturday. I'd have to look but I though it was him..bascially wr screen.

Some guys just have a knack for making plays in games that don't really show in practice. I remember Conley talking about Joe Germaine...in practice he looked like a 'wasted scholly' (his words). But in the games he just seemed to make plays.

I know I'm beating the proverbial dead horse here..but it really peaves me that we have replay and it's not used at crucial times or it flat out fails. Anyone could see the Navy back was oob prior to hitting the pylon. My 13 year old spotted on the first replay. The fumble should never have stayed. It seems it's arbitrary as to when something is reviewed. They'll review a 2 yard pass to see if the reciever was really inbounds then ignore a cruicial turnover.  I hope they do reviews of those in charge of replay reviews.

Great hit..but they did have some misses. I rewatched the game last night and our olb's got caught up in blocks quite often. Granted it's guys diving at their feet at times so trying to save their ankles. I'll say at this point we have great athletes at the linebacker positions but they don't have the 'nose' for the ball Shazier had..at least not yet.

Watching the video of Bell making the play..it's hard not to notice at least 4 buckeye defenders in the area of Watkins? and none are really in position to make the play.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

The blueprint focus's on stopping the offense...our offense did enough to win. Our D let MSU run up and down the field. If our D at least held MSU to what they scored against Purdue or Minny we win that game. I think having a D that is at least as formidible as Minny isn't too much to ask.

Comment 10 Aug 2014

I enjoy following recruiting..but I don't put much credence in to the star system. I pay more attention to offers. For example the tight end who commited during Friday night lights(Josh Moore) is only a 3 star but had more impressive list of offers than 4 star Conrad. Moore had offers from FSU, Oklahoma, Auburn..ect. Conrad's list was ok..Arkansas, Pitt, VT. I trust the coaches to evaluate talent moreso than recruiting guru's. And we seen that with Michigans Olline haul a couple of years ago..all highly rated (stars anyway). But their offers weren't what you would expect. And we seen why last year

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Have to agree...I was hoping JT would take the reigns and maybe he will. I have to say I'm a little nervous about the position when Braxton leaves. We've had a number of qb misses in recruiting and I find this odd considering who our coach is.

The story on A&M is pretty strange..can't believe they can do that


 

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I rewatched a few games during the offseason..as a few have mentioned it's amazing how many runs were just a half step away from breaking it. Maybe he needs to learn that little high step kick that Braxton uses from time to time. And I don't think it was Urban who started the hype as much as other players..I even think Urban said the talk need to be toned down a bit. I think someone had the stats and he still had more yards as a FR than Wiley..who many think had a spectacular FR year (most due to his first game.)
