Parents went to the ND at OSU game in 1995 when I was five, parents left me at my Uncle's. My dad told me who to root for before he left, my uncle and cousins were ND fans, they couldn't sway me and I puked on their couch for them trying, and OSU won. I don't really remember a whole lot about OSU football until their National Championship season when I attended their games against Cincinnati and Penn St.

well the coaches are rolling with Webb.. and said he has made major improvements.. what people forget is that despite his lapses in coverage he was 10 times the run defender that hooker was, rarely missed tackles.

If the other WR are struggling in a few weeks he will begin to see the field more and more. He looked great smoking a db for a long TD in the highlight from last Saturday's scrimmage. If he is a legit deep threat and no one else steps up in that role, again he will see the field.

My only real confusion is which DTs are 1techs vs 3techs.. The smaller twitchier guys are typically at the 3tech and the bigger space eaters are typically at the 1tech but I have seen BB Landers in at the 1tech and Davon Hamilton at 3tech.. which seems the opposite of normal to me. Also Sprinkle was a 3 tech last year but it seems like he added another 5-10 lbs and might be needed at the 1-tech due to Hill's suspension. Jones is definitely a 3-tech with amazing quickness off the ball.. I did go back and watch him a bit.. he's a terror being blocked by only one guy.. but on the other hand he was disappointing against a double team vs the run.. getting pushed into the laps of the LBs.. hopefully he's added some good strength.

My main concerns are the safeties.. Obviously Marshon and Gareon were fantastic corners but they could afford to be aggressive with Malik Hooker, the best deep centerfield safety I have ever seen at OSU, manning the FS spot. We'll see if Erick Smith and Jordan Fuller can prove to be good at FS.. We've been spoiled with Vonn Bell, Malik, and Tyvis was solid in coverage despite his poor tackling(honestly Malik left a little to be desired as well against the run). My next concern is our size and ability to be strong against the run vs smash mouth teams with huge OLs (mainly Oklahoma). Without Hill I believe Hamilton is the only DT over 300 and our LBs are mostly 235 or smaller.. Booker is listed at 240 but doesn't have bulk to his frame.. I thought he would grow like Perry did but he has not.

Sure going to be fast as hell though.

The coaches have been saying all spring and summer that Webb has made huge strides and is a clear cut starter.. so not really an assumption. Also Smith has been healthy all of camp.. Fuller has been nursing injuries.. So Smith and Webb will be the two safeties on the field on Aug 31, Fuller and Pryor might work in.. but first defensive series its going to be Smith and Webb without a doubt

I've read all about that, and I'm optimistic.. but the reality is from reading RFido's post is that day tried to teach that to Bradford but Bradford wouldn't translate it into his play.. there is the possibility that JT might not be able to improve his timing and aggressiveness when the lights are on.. but I sure hope he does.

Thank you, it was actually my soothsayer. He also told me to predict Garrett 4 minutes ahead of it being released... see the Comments on the Okudah black stripe removal announcement.

In all reality My soothsayer is my listening to how Meyer has been talking about each guy.

Has any of this been linked to anything other than personal use? Is there any evidence he was hooking recruits/players up? Seemes pretty obvious he ran a dirty program but what evidence would the NCAA be finding in an investigation?

Comment 16 Aug 2017

Be careful man.. John Daily's have had me aiming my swing about 2ft from where I thought the ball was.. because that's how I had to calibrate to hit the dang thing. Canoeing seems a little more dangerous than golf

Comment 16 Aug 2017

Problem with this is.. will he be able to get JT to make quicker decisions in the pocket? I think this and overall timing has hindered JT a lot the past two seasons.. out of rhythm causing poor mechanics and throws and also leading to unnecessary sacks.
