Just wondering how you know these things, about the truth and fiction of how Urban and Saban deal with the players on the roster that are not talented or committed or healthy enough to remain on athletic scholarship?
I’m just asking, it seems you would prefer certain failure, rather than probable failure, with that earlier comment, or does it just read the wrong way?
So, they want Washington to play corner?
sorry, I misread and mixed up the posts above.
Would that have been worse than losing the game on that play?
Riggs barely stayed in bounds untouched, and there were several seconds. I guess I assumed the WR would be knocked out or be able to get out easily. I can’t recall if there was a time out remaining.
Arriving too early is also a bad mistake, whiffing on the end of game tackle - intentionally or not - was just the second, most visible and costly of his two mistakes on that play. It sucks, and it’s done, but damn it stings to see a great final quarter end like that.
What I saw was the opposite of what I would call a great ending. It was a rookie DB whiffing on what should have been an easy tackle. Now, there still would have been time for a FG, so the outcome likely would have been the same, and possibly that would have been a great series of back and forth drives to finish an important game - that would have been a better ending to be sure. But a great ending it was not , unless you are a Vikes fan, and categorize any playoff win in th final minute/seconds as a great ending, regardless of circumstance...?
But Meyer said he was gong to make Stoneburner an All-American. or something like that, remember?
A college buddy of mine went to Bishop Hendricken! It’s cool to see the name of his school, and another alumnus here!
Ginn is still one of the fastest players in the NFL. Watch him play this weekend, and see how much cushion he gets from the super talented Vikings DBs., and how he will still run by them. Dude is just a freak.
+1 for “rec specs”
Hindsight is awesome. If only we could have access to similar foresight.
cantguardmike has some of the best hands in the NFL - if not the best. The guy is amazing. I agree with all of the above post.
Didn’t mean to try to undermine your post - you are correct. It’s just a reaction, that beside “fast,” the two other words that come to mind when I hear Paris Campbell’s name are “drop” and “fumble.”
If he can fix those problems, he’s a first round pick. If not, he’s a flier late round guy, and out of the league in two years.
My biggest gripe is that all of this is based on the rumored desires of someone within the Republican Party - nothing at all has come from Tressel, not even a action that one could reasonably stretch into speculation. It’s made up. All of it.
When he catches and holds onto the ball, yes
Why does the narrative on Jones change with every article? It’s done.
I shouldn’t just complain about one little thing, though. This is a great article, and I am happy you put in the work to put this together. Thank you, Andrew.
Happy to hear this may actually happen.
That’s exactly why Saban did it. He had nothing to lose, except the game, which was already slipping away with Hurts at QB. It paid off probably better than he dreamed it could. If he believed Tua gave them a better chance to win, he would have started the game. Saban was banking on Georgia’s lack of familiarity and preparation for a QB that can throw a little better, and he probably remembered how well that situation played out for the Buckeyes a few years ago. There was. I thing to lose, but the margin of defeat.
That’s a great recruiting pitch, you know?
My crow is in the other post where you replied with a similar comment.
Credit due, seriously? By credit, do you mean you deserve credit for something? You are very good at looking up posts and identifying incorrect predictions.
Is that what you needed from me?
Ok, he is your crow.
I was wrong. I didn’t watch the game, but was
pretty surprised to see the final score. It was quite different from what most of us expected. I was way off.
We will never know if our offense/coach would have been able to score points against either of those teams, so that one is what it is, just a statement of my opinion.
When the field expands, how many of you will stay up until early the next morning - or tune in at all - to see matchups like TCU vs Auburn, or FSU vs Washington in a quarter final game? I know I won’t...
Didn’t care; didn’t watch
