I agree with Rosenbeck, Ledee was a step slow guarding centers. Just not athletic enough for power forward.
I think he would help some as soon as next year. A defensive presence inside is something we need when Caleb is out. Not saying that Young and others aren't valuable too but they don't have the height or length to guard the other teams big men. All that said, how did the Muszynski kid from Belmont get away?
Michigan hired someone with ties there. How'd that work out?
If Harrison wants no part of the publicity why do area sports writers keep writing about him.Leave him alone.
Get the ball to Granville!
Can't hear the interviews. anyone else?
Still, we're 4 games in and he's almost even money against the field? Gimmee a break.
I'm really concerned about the running game. The pass blocking was very good, giving Haskins time to find a receiver, but there didn't seem to be many holes for Dobbins and Weber. I don't watch the line play much but it looked a lot like Tulane used something like the Bud Foster's Bear Defense in 2014. The difference was that Haskins can pick apart that defense and Barrett couldn't. I could be wrong. Somebody help me here.
Miami 2-0? (too late)
"As for the Picktown guard you are referring to, I haven't heard the greatest things about him lately. It is all hearsay, so I will leave it at that".
Not necessary. Good post up until that.
With the 3rd game in a little over 5 days (game time to game time) they're going to be tired. Big, rowdy crowd should help. I think we owe it to them for the effort we're seeing this year.
Good point but I can't stop saying to myself "put KBD back in" or "put so and so back in". Obviously that's why I'm watching from the cheap seats and Holtmann is in the front row. Still puzzled, though, why Kaleb sat so long at the end of the game. Not questioning Holtmann, just hoping he wasn't injured.
I was at both games but I'm sure you could see it on TV too, The effort on defense energized the crowd and that, in turn, energized the team even more.
Some serious guns in that picture.
Miami calls itself The U. It's time we called ourselves "THE" (thee)
Is there a reason Haskins is an option on one question and Burrow isn't?
I remember one player saying Burrow was the next Tom Brady. Can't think who it was though.
That went well.
Put your thesaurus away Ben. My post has nothing to do with Kyle's understanding of strategy. I'm still on board with that. I just don't think JT always makes the right reads on his options.
Barrett has "always been one of the best 'readers' in America, allowing the defense's actions to dictate where the ball goes instead of deciding before the snap."
My opinion of Kyle Jones just took a big hit.
I watched Burrow in HS and I know he didn't play against high level teams but that doesn't affect the quick release and accuracy I saw, so he would be my choice. Some would prefer Haskins and I'd be good with that too. I've been on the "bench JT" train since early last year. That said, we're only painting Urban into a corner. Changing QBs now would be admitting that the fans have been right and he's been wrong. As much as I hate to say it, I think our frustration is only going to continue.
Were you bullied as a child?
Our DB's are no longer taught to turn back and look back for the ball on short/intermediate passes. We could do that about 2 times before they started running stop and go routes. I seem to remember when we were giving up 70/80 yard TD's doing that. I think our DB's were covering pretty well. Indiana just made great throws and great catches. I don't think teams will make those plays consistently. That might be the best we see all year. Simmie Cobbs Is going to do that to a lot of teams this year.
