I think its honestly splitting hairs, but Camar looks a little stronger and more explosive against arguably better competition. Im still beyond thrilled we got henderson, cant really go wrong here with either one.

I dont know if theyve done it all year or not but I remember reading the other day about how OU (and by extension venables once at clemson) refused to practice in the super dome because they swore there were camera in there recording gameplan. Im not sure if Baylor practiced in the Superdome or not but it seemed pretty obvious to me the screens were to block the TV feed from being able to see hand signals.

the troy smith 20 lbs thing, and ginn getting hurt on play 1 cannot be overstated in that 2007 game. No one can convince me that if we had played them a week or 2 after UM that we wouldnt of won. That loss is still number 1 in my mind considering how many great teams we beat in the process that season. This year is number 2, that LSU loss is way down the list, we had no business being in that game and most rational fans knew it.

This year's team was really one of my favorites to watch ever. You really got the sense this team had a ton of love for one another and the staff really just clicked. You can count on 1 hand the number of quarters this team mailed it in, really felt like a full realization of talent all season. This loss is going to sting for a really really long time, I think I'm most sad to realize we'll never see this iteration of buckeye football play together again. This team made it really easy to be proud to be a buckeye and even though last night was disappointing this team has so much to be proud about, it was a great season.

I could easily see it being JSN when its all said and done I just rewatched all 3 of their tapes..

-Fleming reminds me a lot of someone who i played against in HS (A former all world recruit in Whitney Lewis) Fleming's tape doesnt pop in the way you'd expect the number one at his position too. I'm not going to get into stats. But he is a physical freak who I think can very well develop into *that guy* but I think he's still relatively raw.

-JSN got a lot of man coverage and torched a lot of kids in it, hes got the hands and really nice top end speed to go with it. There's no doubt in my mind he's going to be a hell of a player for us.

-Gee to me is the most polished of the bunch (which may also mean his ceiling is lower), has beautiful route running, catches everything, and is quick as well. He faced a lot of soft zone so there isnt as much of those long plays you like to see at that level but I think it will be a different story at the next level for him

Either way I'm excited with the haul, we truly have an embarassment of riches, the future is bright out wide.

If a kids main concern is individual awards I dont think we really want him. Development, draft history, level of competition, exposure, a chance to be part of something special.

And I'll believe it when I see it..

Idk how much game-planning you've been a part of... but this 'tip' is so broad it borders on useless. When you're the losing team getting a rematch you have way more you can learn from and adjust from the tape. Wisconsin likely made a myriad of small scheme adjustments based on our tendencies and what we put on tape vs them that yielded the first half results they did. These things can be pretty minor like: seeing we like to try and jump certain routes, we bite more on certain run looks, playcalls we like vs certain personnel groupings etc etc.. its not like we didnt put someone on cephus. To play devils advocate if we doubled cephus the entire game it would open us up to get gashed even more than we did by JT. Even with this info, do we think the best CB in the country couldnt cover a B+ receiver? Do you want our coaching staff changing a defensive gameplan from a troll-ish former blogger the day of the game?
