have to agree with others..if Loving is that fragile than he's better off on the bench. We aren't going anywhere this season and we need some leaders to step forward as we build for next year. And the leaders have to be tough enough to handle adversity. The young man does not.
I love this kind of stuff..thanks for taking the time. I generally think I know football but after reading some of your articles I always come away knowing more than I did.
I believe Urban is 2-2 against MSU. Not a big difference but I don't like it when people hand pick a stat.
Hard not to notice number 3 with some great downfield blocking on both plays
Collinsworth last night was saying Seattle was running options but Russell wasn't carrying it last week. If the qb doesn't run then it's really not an option and makes it much easier to diagnose. I think we have some that right now. QB's ran for barely over 20 yards Saturday. Just to big a part of this offense imo to remove.This isn't what hurt us Saturday as mistakes were too widespead..
Have to agree with GB413...Eze isn't running like he did late last year. I thought it during the game and these clips show he's lowering himself to a point of no return. I think if the guys didn't even touch him he would have been down. He was running through bama lb's but one NI safety was getting him down. He started out like this early last year but picked up. We'll see..
First time I noticed how fast that ref was
as mentioned..we are in serious need of some tight ends. With all of the recruiting success we've missed on a boatload
of tight ends. I have no idea why as we do use them. Vannett is gone after this year and the tight end needs to know a lot in this offense so it takes some time. And you always wonder if Baugh is going to do something stupid again and get kicked off the team. Yes..it would be great if we can start building our next star tight end.
Much was made of the bear front but what struck me when rewatching the game was how many times the VT qb just made a great throw before being hammered. Some were caught on fingertips. He looked NOTHING like that in the two VT games I watched later. I doubt he pulls that off again. The basketball attendance numbers were kind of odd. I wouldn't have thought Nebraska would be so high. We were 5th I think and Illinois beat us by about 4 people per game. For an awful season that's about what I would expect. Most of us weren't happy by the effort from many on the team and that hurts more than losses imo
Georgia is not a bad school...one of a handful of SEC schools on par with B1G
I hope my C-Bus friends get to see their BlueJackets in the playoffs some day. I've watched the Lightning make this long trek...26 playoff games and every game means something. We fell short but there is nothing like playoff hockey..and I'm not even that big of a hockey fan.
I agree...very interesting read. It's always interesting to see how rather minor incidents spark a movement.
No doubt..if you look back at our absolute best teams they all had great D lines. It's often overlooked and as some have stated..it's what seperates some of the SEC teams from the rest of the country. It's no suprise MSU and OSU have been at the forefront of the B1G rebound as they have solid if not outstanding Dline play. It's really a shame Spence is gone..what a terror him and Bosa would be.
You probably want to avoid the fan sites until fall camp..there isn't much to talk about except the occasional commit so it will be a hot topic for the next 5 months
Not yet..Standfor DB Wayne Lyons is considering a number of schools. Michigan just happened to create a new position and hired Lyons mother for the position. Nothing odd about that!
The idiot Michigan press failed to realize Weber was more important of a get/loss for M than it was OSU. He's a hometown kid who once committed to M. Most buckeye fans would have been fine if he chose otherwise. Now if this was a Ohio kid and a longtime buckeye fan..
Love the pic of the qb's..you can really see the difference in them. Jones is a just a big old happy teddy bear. JT is one cool dude. Braxton actually looks happy.
Harris is special but I really like Weber. The guy is a bruiser..he and Samuel could be our own version of 'thunder and lightning'.
Bama also offered Weber. My fear now is Harbaugh..he's going to make a full court press on Weber.
Didn't this group of seniors win the Sugar Bowl (regardless of vacated wins) and B1G champs in 2010?
Appreciate the info..I really like Weber but I've only seen the highlight film. I wish we got some more updates like this from those who see these guys in person. I can see why MSU likes him..he looks like the typical Spartan back. But we shined with Hyde in our backfield and can easily fit in a downhill runner like Weber..imo.
IF Braxton goes elsewhere..it can't be a future opponent. If were to make the playoff's next year I don't want to see Braxton across the field. So that should negate teams like Oregon. There are plenty of programs that need a qb and run an offense that will suit him..and are extremely unlikely to make it to the 4 team playoff.
I love Samual but I still think Eze is our best all around back. He has the blocking down and that will be extremely important against the MSU D. I felt bad for Rod when he was dismissed but this O is much more dangerous with Samuel getting Rod's carries.
What Urban has always been great at is..assembling a great staff and recruiting. Honestly about all the great programs are built on such things. If he doesn't like the way something is going he'll make changes (unlike our predecessor). You see vast improvement on the defense with the new DC.. We'll see what we elect to do on offense. He made some rather stinging remarks in Hermans direction after the game. He's doing fine on recruiting. I know it's been said regardless of how well JT is playing..we lost a the reigning B1G player of the year 2 weeks before the season started. Not many teams would do so well after such a blow. My only dissapointment since Urban was hired has been the D..and that's on it's way to getting where it needs to go imo
I feel bad for Rod..but I never really saw the talent others seen. He certainly has great size and speed..but I didn't really see a running back. He was a big fast guy that could do fine with a hole. I always thought they would move him to a different position. Frankly as the season wore on I wanted to see more of Samuel than Smith. He looks like he could be the home run hitter the running game is missing. Hopefully Rod get's his life moving in the right direction
I'm not sure why so many are bothered by this..who gives a sh**. It's not like the guy brings it up.
