Good news from UFM - especially regarding injuries, but no mention of Haskell Garrett?

Apologies if I missed.

Harbaugh said his kicker/holder/long-snapper battery is executing at a high level. Kicker Quinn Nordin is 14-of-16 on field goals this season, and a perfect 17-of-17 on extra points. 

Harbaugh really is a troll among trolls.  He used time during this teleconference call to talk about his kicker/holder/snapper and their chemistry and how well they're playing together?  You really have no other positional group to talk about or focus on?

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Harbaugh on the rest of the game: "The hydration specialists really stepped up, the color of the urine in the toilets during halftime and after the game showed that they were doing their job effectively."

Harbaugh also felt very proud of the school record set last Saturday.  "I felt we were in pretty good shape when we hit 10 penalties ... but with the game winding down .. our guys really focused and we were able to accomplish our goal of 16 penalties in one game".  "I was not bitterly disappointed with the effort shown by our young men"

Franklin agreed with Urban Meyer about limiting a team to two road conference night games per season. "It's brutal on the players and coaches."

Penn State has had one road night game and might not have another this year (possibly MSU).  So the cap wouldn't appear to affect you.

I hate it too as a spectator. 

Used to be, Id watch GameDay at 11am, Then the Noon game, then 3:30, then 7:30pm game.   Now all the good games are on a 7:30pm or 8pm.  You never see a decent match up at Noon Ever. 

Screw the networks, I mean it.  Im tired of this nonsense too w the B10 Network and their 10 year anniversary special.  Like the Network did something great, its the schools, the fans who make it great.  Not the Network, B10 Network should be kissing ass of all the fans.

I have to agree with this.  10 years in and their coverage still sucks.  Their analysts aren't any good, and the whole production looks like I'm shooting it in my basement.  Fact is people want to follow their teams, and it's all about getting eyeballs, so now we're subjected to watching the Buckeyes play Rutgers at night because BTN wants to show a primetime team instead of a primetime matchup.

They hate us cuz they aint us!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'd be interested in knowing who the coaches are visiting on these recruiting trips.  I've got to imagine Emory Jones is getting a visit, Cook in Texas and hopefully someone's hitting up Jackson Carmen as well.  Gotta figure the various DE's will be getting some love from the coaching staff as well.

Open-ended questions are a reporter's job. It keeps everything from being a boring yes or no. By the way, enjoyed the riverwalk last night.

I think press conferences should only allow True/False, multiple choice, or yes/no questions. Maybe even give them the questions in advance.

Riley said his talk with new athletic director Bill Moos was "very social." Said the conversation was about the past, and not about the future. 

I'm sure talking about their glorious past is fun, but it might be time for the Nebraska leadership to focus on the future.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

HS
jhart's picture

I was going to post something about this myself...if I was an employee and there was no talk about the future, I wouldn't be feeling too confident.

In my experience there last week, the Nebraska fanbase wants 2 things: Frost for coach (there were a lot of election themed "Frost 2018" t-shirts), and, surprisingly, they're waiting on Osborne to pass away to eliminate his lingering influence on the program (their words).

As an Asperger’s patient, yes, it is sometimes hard to respond when someone questions you about something you are doing wrong. Because you can’t stand when you’re wrong.

But please don’t mock the disability, that’s just not cool man. You’re born with it and can’t do anything to change it. And from experience - it’s a daily struggle to manage.

Can some body who knows football tell me if secondary struggles are more corners or safeties or is my question completely stupid ?

HS
Tulsinator's picture

It depends on the scheme they play against. Press coverage from the corners against Indiana led to some one on one matchups they struggled against. The Oklahoma game was more the linebackers and somewhat the safeties losing the RB's out of the backfield and TE's in the middle of the field. The LB core has improved and DB's have done a better job in press coverage, namely Ward and Arnette.

HS
tcm1968's picture

Two things imo. Still have some trust issues on defense where guys want to sneak a peek at something that's not their assignment. Bigger issue with secondary is zone coverage. Struggled early in the year and then went away from it and I think some of the bad play against Nebraska was us back in zone. Seems to be a REAL disconnect of when a receiver moves from zone to zone about who/where coverage should be. No chemistry between the backers and the DBs seems to be the culprit. You just can't play man 100% an expect to win against tougher opponents. have to be able to show different looks. 

It's similar to some of the problems the offense had earlier in the season. We've got these coaches bringing NFL style plays to these 18-20 year old kids and it's a learning process.....

Go Bucks!

HS
Trebor40's picture

This is an excellent point as our opponents have faced us in continuous man to man, we must be able to come out of that for options and surprises yet good heavens it is impressive to watch our guys play press coverage while pressure comes down! We do not drop well into zones nor do we seem to be active once we get into our sections!

I would rather be on hand with 10 men then elsewhere with 10,000 - Timur Lenk

HS
Trebor40's picture

I will say as a Safety it is all Sheffield's fault! Though normally I joke, in this case Sheffield is NOT getting his hips around as the receiver comes out of his break. He appears completely stiff out there, which tends to draw even more ire from the refs than his already grab ass way of playing corner would normally do! This powerful young man would have been very difficult in the 70's and the way the game was called yet in this era he is just to mechanical!

Yeah, that's the narrative everyone was trying to shove down our throats. What happens when they realize his coaching skills are overrated, and the blue chips stop coming because he's all talk and no substance. Then all they'll have is his charming personality, sharp wit and endearing sense of self importance.

Good for Knox. I was down on him a few weeks ago, not really based on anything other than guessing that since he had seemingly been passed by several other younger guards, it was unlikely he had much of a future here. He kept at it and took advantage of his big chance You definitely would not have noticed we had an injury replacement on the offensive line from watching the Nebraska game.

Allen said changing the culture at Indiana has been challenging when creating an expectation of success when times get hard. 

Too bad we're not playing Indiana this week. I'm guessing Kevin Wilson might've taken exception to this remark.

No, I don't know anyone who works there, but I have to laugh at the negative comments about the BTN in this thread.  Ten years ago people on this site and others were taking pitchforks to Comcast, Time Warner, and any other outlet who wouldn't include the BTN in their package or charged a premium for it.  If we had to watch Ohio State play Youngstown State at a sports bar (or not see it at all) instead of at home, we bitched like a bunch of old women.  

Living on the east coast, the BTN allows me to watch Big Ten basketball -- or else I'd be forced to watch Providence play St. John's -- or the like.....2-3 times per week.  

So, as I ask you to get off my lawn.......I need to remind some of you that you're memories are a bit short when it comes to the BTN and how things would be without it.  Actually, I know what it would be like -- listening to games on the radio or following a stream on a computer. The reactions would be beyond laughable.

The B1G has certainly improved, probably 99% because of Urban. But goodness, there is still some extreme incompetence in this league...just comical. 

In other news, I really truly believe that if TTUN loses this weekend and to Wisconsin, Urban has a chance to absolutely end him as a college coach. 

HS
Nutinpa's picture

Yes, if that scene plays out, Harbaugh will be the next coach of the Indy Colts next year.

To your central point......99% is a bit much. 

Mark Dantonio has turned around Michigan State;  Penn State came out of its own ashes and Wisconsin is as solid and steady as ever.  Durkin will get all that anyone ever can out of Maryland and nobody is laughing at Purdue right now. 

If you want to point at ILL and Rutgers as evidence of incompetence, I will agree with you. 

It's true that Meyer has forced EVERYONE to up their game in recruiting.  But to suggest that even as good of a coach as Meyer is....that he is responsible for "99%" of the League's improvement, when his team is going to have to play their asses off to avoid missing the conference championship 3 years in a row, is over-the-top, imho.
