Love this column- great to see it back!

I like the versatility of the defense, but if it comes at the expense of White only getting 19 snaps something needs adjusted. 

Also, not sure how much more we need to see Pryor/Proctor for those snap numbers to be flipped. This feels eerily similar to the early days for Malik Hooker- started to late so only able to utilize his abilities for one year.

Walking to/from Short North eliminates some options for ya.

On campus, the correct answers are Varsity Club and Little Bar.

I appreciate the versatility in scheme this year, but i’m worried it may come at the expense of having our best players on the field at all times.  This especially references Brandon White as all indications point to him bing on the field ~50% of the time.  

Kyle, hoping you can speak to this a bit more, but is this a worry you feel is justified?  I find it hard to rationalize our arguably best back-7 playmaker getting so few snaps.  

Comment 17 Aug 2019

Aside from Field’s play, the performance of the offensive line has the biggest range of outcomes that could largely impact this season.  They have all the talent, and questions.

Is Mumford really 100%? How does Jackson mesh? Can Myers continue to recent history of great centers? Davis deliver on his high profile status? Does Bowen trust his leg enough? 

You can make an argument that this could end up as our best all the way to worst position group this year.

This feels like Marvin Wilson again if he chooses FSU.  Wish him nothing but the best but seems like a very poor decision.  

Comment 25 Jul 2019

I disagree, it’s a fair question.  All off-season we’ve heard if Mitchell can pass Borland, but very little about Browning.  Sure it could be insinuating about Browning’s status, otherwise he’s been overlooked.  

Comment 22 Jul 2019

17 of the 22 starters eventually got drafted as well.  One of those 5, Jalin Marshall, stuck around for a bit as well.  

18/22 is pretty ridiculous.   

Comment 12 Jul 2019

This is great info, thank you.  

It is really hard to be a great football player when a player doesn’t have great athleticism.  It looks like receiver is the easiest position to overcome that though.  

Comment 03 Jul 2019

If the staff thinks he can play a tackle spot, which seems to be indicated he can, then I think another tackle is a priority. You can never have to many players that can play tackle effectively.  

If he were strictly destined for the inside, I would agree with your point.  

Comment 28 Jun 2019

Andrew strongly insinuated that there is something specifically deeper going on with Ringo.  Given Birm’s confidence as well I think there staff took him off the board after an incident occurred behind closed doors. 

Comment 27 Jun 2019

Could explain all the Rivals crystal balls coming in- hard not to pencil a kid into a class when it can be seen he’s recruiting for them.
