I played high school in the 90's.  Played offensive and defensive line. I think you can appreciate the toll the pounding takes on players bodies.  I could have played at a small school but chose not to. I can't imagine the speed and strength of playing again all D1 athletes.  I remember hitting William Houston who later played full back at OSU.  I hit his as hard as I could and he ran me over and then dragged me with one arm for another 5 yards.  As stated above we were full contact all week except for Thursday. I still have lower back issues but I would not have traded it for the world. I think it may give you a little better prospective on the game and the techniques the players use. That being said there are a lot of people who never played that know much more than me.

I love Dobbins and think he is running really hard.  A lot of the gains can be attributed to the offensive line though. He is not getting hit until he is 6 or 7 yards downfield. The linebackers are tackling well.  They are also taking on blockers much like Darren Lee did in the past.  Werner destroyed a blocker on a play to his side this weekend. I hope we stay hungry and do not read our press clippings. Sparty usually plays us tough.

Auston Mack got behind the bearcat defender and was held or it would have been a TD.  I am not sure it was a double move, but he is running great routes as all a lot of our receivers this year. I don't think you have to have a bunch of 4.3 receivers to win. Time will tell though.

I remember trying to tackle Cothran when I was a junior. As he was running me over I grabbed his elbow pad and he drug me for 5 more yards with his one arm. He was a load.

Great write up Ramzy. I have never been a Forde fan.  Comes off as arrogant and all knowing. When he comes on the Big Ten network I turn the channel. The LSU story is the most disturbing.  I understand college players being paid by boosters.  I just can not wrap my mind around someone stealing from sick kids.  What a creep.

I don't see the benefit of scheduling tough out of conference games. It doesn't help in the committees eyes. As a fan I love them, but the big Ten and Big 12 play 9 conference games. Why schedule a tough OOC game?  The SEC plays 8 with a cream puff at the end of the year.
