Teague averaged 5.8 yards per carry and was closing on 1,000 yards as a non feature back running behind a 2nd offensive line on many occasions. His 5.8 YPC was better than everyone in the big ten except:

JK Dobbins

Jonathan Taylor

Journey Brown

lete see what he does with a bulk of the work load

People can say what they want but the resume is the resume. His positions have been important in setting up game plans in some big time programs. And he’s making a decent living in those positions. I served as a position coach in a different sport at the college level and couldn’t come close to making what that guy was making and it forced me back into the private sector

October is brutal. I don’t care who you are, this is still the Big Ten and physical football.

Iowa, Sparty, We are Not Elite and The Huskers are no joke

From someone who has coached at the collegiate level, albeit a different sport....

Loyalty, in my sport, used to be the way you got your opportunity to move up, grab more responsibility and ultimately get your shot to run your own show.

The coaching profession at the collegiate level in any sport has become a dog eat dog world. For those guys, a difference in title or job is hundreds of thousands of dollars. At the lower levels where you sometimes have to choose between food or rent for the month, the ability to jump can amount to the ability to add an extra couple hundred dollars and help yourself to not fall behind on student loans, car payments, etc.

May have given you a long winded explanation, but in my opinion the short answer anymore is no, loyalty is slowly dissipating. Anymore, at least in my sport, the coaches who tweet the most and self promote with videos, camps, etc seem to be the ones who move on and get opportunity

Watching it back it was actually a pretty good call. A LB made the read and slipped a block. Players make plays

That’s what installing the football field as soon as the playoffs are over so it allows 6-8 weeks of growth and mild temperatures will do for you

Didn’t Illinois end up in the Sugar Bowl as a 10 win team that year?

Tough to pick up on tv with the gray font... have seen it for several bowl games and it looks very dark especially on natural surfaces

Heavyweights is a good one.

Worked with several younger people who had not see n either of the Mighty Ducks nor Angels in the Outfield from the early 90s Disney mega machine either. Both have decent one liners. Got looked at like a zombie

It’s a generational thing. Unless you seek out the information to know you’re not going to know.

i work with a younger group of individuals and occasionally quote movies that are no more than 20-25 years old and 98% of the time they’ve never seen the film. It’s just the way it goes.

mu grandfather told me he was the best running back he’d ever seen. I’ve read enough and watched enough old footage to see he was the premier back of his day

The Indians just happened to draw the worst World Series opponent they could have drawn which created unreal demand for tickets. A reasonable drive/flight plus folks in a larger market with more disposable income offering people life changing money for Game 7 seats will do that for you

Comment 17 Dec 2019

Just because the team is now valued over $1 billion doesn’t mean he has money to spend... or wants to spend it...
