He does not strike me as a ball-aggressive receiver. I thought with his height and size that he would be a perfect 50/50 ball guy that a QB could trust when making a tight throw. From what I have seen, Victor is more of a basket catcher rather than going up with strength and snatching the ball. His did go up and get that great PSU reception, but that is the exception to his norm.
Seeing Ohio State talent running an Oklahoma State inspired offense. I think it will be lethal. Hopefully we don't see some hobbled form of it.
One thing possibly driving some of the decision making for these kids is the trouble headed LSU's way in the near future. The basketball program is not the only LSU sport that has some payment issues being looked into. The football team has some issues that may soon grow larger regarding the booster John Paul Funes.
Irving is a cancer. It won't take him long to establish another malignancy for the nets. He'll have spoiled things before KD ever heals from his achilles injury.
Although Martell's role was short-lived, the coaching staff's willingness to play an inexperienced, redshirt sophomore because of his athleticism further proves that dual-threat quarterbacks are more effective than strict pocket passers in the red zone.
I don't remember Martell having much, if any, success when he was used in red zone situations. He seemed to come up empty in most every instance I can remember.
That's my take as well. If OSU fields a defense that is in keeping with past precedent, they win comfortably. I fully expect that they will be better this year given the depth and experience across the entire defense. The main question is how well Fields can run the offense. There is talent to burn on offense as well, so it's a matter of him being able to effectively distribute.
If we don't see the "Bear Front" as a surprise again, I like our chances.
Like Businesses and politics, it's a transparent move for FSU to be opaque in their sports operations. Put plainly, they want to cheat and not be held accountable. This move would facilitate a quick descent to the bottom for NCAA football. The NCAA would be foolish to allow FSU to continue to participate with other NCAA teams if FSU goes this route.
Keegan Wilburn looks like an enlarged copy of Tate Martell. I thought some older pictures had slipped into the list.
Well, it did not take much time to find my guy in the list. I'm glad to see the hate for ole horse teeth is universal.
Why are kids still using the word "Committed"? That is decidedly not what is happening anymore in college football.
I am happy to hear that things are on a positive track for Greg. I really see him as being very valuable as a coach. He has some really unique experiences to bring to the staff. He's played for the school and has a good personal story to he can use to relate to recruits and he is young enough to still get out on the floor and do some in persona, on the floor coaching with big guys.
I think having a seven foot tall coach that can go out with a player and really make him work on his fundamentals and moves is a real plus.
I think we do have great DB's and LB's, we just need the coaching staff to coach them and use them to their best effect. The talent is deep across the board for this team. It's all scheme and execution at this point.
The first thing that comes to mind is goal line situations. TE's can be really effective on delayed routes in the end zones, especially with a running threat QB, which I think we can pretty safely assume with Justin Fields. I'm sure that Steven A. Smith has fields pegged as a "slow-footed pocket passer", but everyone else will be hedging against his run option at the goal line.
I have to agree. We have had plenty of talent at TE for a long time. Utilization has been the only issue I've noticed. If this team throws a few extra TE routes a game it creates an addtional issues for a defense to account for and slows down reaction time just that much more.
I don't know, Rosen made the same type of proclamation last year after he went behind Mayfield, Darnold and Josh Allen. Now Rosen's team is taking another QB with the first pick this year. That is not exactly vindication for Rosen.
I'm glad Dwayne is motivated by the perceived snub, but sometimes things are better left unsaid.
I wonder if it is the mound that throws so many people off when making that throw. You see so many athletes, who have almost certainly thrown a baseball plenty of times, come up short on a throw that is not that long.
Does the portal ever close? It does not feel like there is a transaction window of any kind that would restrict players to a notification period that would allow coaches to compensate adequately.
If it were Arby's, it would more likely be a "5 Regular FUCKS of MICHIGAN for 5 bucks". The 5 for 5 is back, baby!
I just assumed that the OSU logo with the red "X" was to remind them that they did not get offered by a good football program.
All seven of them?
I post the above comment, read down one more line and see someone has beat me to it.
You know, cousins have to stick together.
No Ric Flair, but we did have a ZekeSquatch trundling around the sidelines.
My impression has been that he really wants to be at OSU. That's just reading the stuff found here at 11W and a couple of other sites. It's not like I have any kind of first hand information.
The logical question is: If he was not interested in OSU, why bother with the visits and the camps when he already had a lot of quality D1 offers in his pocket?
