Exactly... I'm grateful for his comment. I believe Day is bought in on the rivalry... But like freshmen... It's never real until that first hit. Now it's personal and he has to be motivated by it. 

Comment 19 Jul 2019

THE HAT & SUIT.... Why? It's not even strategic marketing towards the young men you're recruiting. I was going to comment on this very thing... But you've said it so well. I know a parent of one of his former players... Who always said... "They need to drug test the coaches as well. Because I'm pretty sure he's on something." (and not even a disgruntled parent... the son was a starter and played significantly). If we could only hear it straight from Al and Mattison about some of their experiences working with him... Priceless.

As I write this... Mookie Cooper commits. Right before that... I was thinking of how we pull for all our players to do well. But then we see the phenoms coming in and hope most of them can go from jump. I always hope these kinds of players pan out and get the playing time... But on the other end of it 1 to 2 yrs at a program like this is better than a juco program (just an example) or playing at some other less than school... Because the competition, tutelage (Hartline) and strength & conditioning (Mariotti) will prepare you to succeed elsewhere. That portal will be popping w/WR's over the next year.

This year is key to maintain our advantage at getting top RB's. We have the advantage over a Texas program in terms of production at RB's going to the next level and having success. Plus 2 1000 yard rushers last year. But it wasn't the kind of year w/the most highlights from our RB's. Still... We should land Robinson. What concerns me is maintaining it thru the letter of intent. If the line and Dobbins have early success this year... No question. And 2 things should happen... 1. Fields running will no doubt open up the run game. Teams have to commit a spy or he'll house it. 2. And after watching Crowley in the spring game and his highlight tapes... He's underrated... Greatly. The future is bright.

Nah.... He's twitchy in short space (hard to juke), long arms on tape, sheds tackles, has a motor, has a nice long stride when he's rolling... And it looks like they line him up at End a lot of times (which is where he could end up w/us). Lastly... His tackling technique... A1

Great watch addressing this... Some perspective on our expectations while having just experienced Haskins

Comment 19 Apr 2019

Moving forward the staff should consider some of the following... 

  • Always recruit a hybrid qb/receiver (that really can throw) to play primarily at receiver but provide snaps in practice and so on. Ideally this is our 3rd string/4th string qb. 
  • Target quality 2nd string qb's (sleepers and etc) and promise playing time in many of the blowouts we have. These types of qb's are out there and will be willing to play here. 
  • Still recruit the best of the best each year and play them asap. The new redshirt rules accomodate it. 
  • No more top shelf qb's in the same class (Fields and Baldwin 2018)

I think Baldwin would've stayed this year even if Haskins stayed another year. Because he believed he could beat out Tate. That's a one year wait only. But in this scenario he knows he likely won't beat out Fields. He's led a team to a state championship game and comes from a successful program. Two top end qb's out of the same class are not going to stay. If he would've beat Fields out... Fields would've transferred.

“I’ve talked to (Hartline) multiple times, and he just knows so much about the receiver position,” Harrison said. “He’s just a phenomenal coach, probably the best receivers coach in the country. 

The summer scandal was a blessing (don't @ me)... Hartline is turning the tides. I'd say Clemson had taken over as WRU (arguable) but if any of the 3 receivers in the draft blows up this year along w/what Michael Thomas is already doing. Plus this years receivers are going to have some huge production.

You land those 2 recruits at Vanderbilt?... This hire like landing a 5 Star in himself. If I remember correctly... He spent some time in the offseason... Working on Jon Diebler's shot motion when he struggled as a freshman. If this is correct... He'll do wonders w/improving Ahrens' consistency.
