  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing Eddie George in 1995 rushing all over a Simeon Rice-led Illinois defense to the tune of 314 yards, 3 TDs, and even catching one... Orlando Pace didn't look too shabby either... it was a wet cold evening, and all the ponchos were out, but will never forget his milestone. He was a man among boys.

Only for the past decade, if we were to choose personas for our football program, I would say we were more of a Phil Mickelson type of program and not a Tiger Woods (Bama). All the talent to win majors (Championships), but got in our own way a lot. Saban had Bama realizing their potential and talent more consistently. Hard to imagine that our golden years are only beginning of you ask me, which makes me temper my expectations due to the past, but also look forward to a bright future with Day at the helm.

I don't doubt if Coombs comes back, he will bring the juice and will recruit well. What I have strong uncertainty is with whether he will be able to continue where Hafley left off and jive well with Mattison and Washington and Barnes ... And does he know the ins and outs of the scheme we use and how we adapt it against various offenses... If he wants to bring his own philosophies to enhance the scheme then great.

That was also on Herman for being mini-Urban and loving the QB run too much

I love Fields, but I hope he gets a faster internal clock to make throws like Joe. He can do it... just needs to be coached up 

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Ok, I got my answer that I asked in the Kyle Jones analysis thread. So here's something I remembered - Urban was actually very anal about testing his staff to have everything prepared after the debacle of VT in 2014. There would be no more surprises and his teams would be prepared - and it showed in the rest of that championship season as well as in subsequent years. Ryan Day - whom I love as our coach - needs to evolve into having this type of CEO mentality where he is holding his coordinators responsible to being prepared for EVERYTHING (even if it is seemingly impossible). At the highest level, you can't be caught with your pants down - there is no excuse. Hafley learned this the hard way... no way you don't account for TL running, because look at how many times we let QB runs hurt us during the regular season - oh right, Wisconsin showed how gullible our defense could be... smdh

I know when switched to 2 high safety after Shaun got ejected but there were some plays where Hafley went back to 1-high even with the backups so not sure what to attribute mistakes to - players missing assignments, bad calls by the DC or a combination... Either way, I'm seriously not watching tonight

I like the thought of bringing in talented coordinators who understand and are masterful with what we do (ie. Our system). The question I have is whether Coombs fits the bill or will he be learning on the job - big difference. Also, based on the aforementioned philosophy of being downhill, what happened against Clemson where TL ran all over the place.

Too soon... a great one for sure among the HOFers of rock drumming. RIP Neil, today's Tom Sawyer has nothin' on you.

Yes, but that mediocrity as a league gave birth to the narrative that the SEC adopted and have since profited from ... Which is "we are mediocre because we have the toughest conference and we beat each other up so much we have nothing to really give by the time the bowls roll around" - granted, back then there were maybe a handful of bowls and most were on New Year's Day...

Brady Hoke is good for CFB. We need his upcoming success at SDSU to be the perfect foil to Harbaugh's exploits up there in la la land.
