The article says "Kraft and 24 other men." Is there any indication that the other 24 men are also billionaires? I wouldn't be surprised if this is more standard procedure than rich-man's loophole.
Well, he is 0-4....
I still remember being at this game. I was up in C section but noticed that Ginn was lined up at TE and started jumping up and down screaming it's a fake. What an amazing game.
Sucks but I doubt they would have gotten a lot of reps anyway. Spring is not a time to wear out the veterans.
I'm surprised they didn't move Pryor to the hybrid LB/Safety job instead of White. That way, you can keep the safeties from last year but incorporate someone who I think plays better near the line of scrimmage.
DB testing is tomorrow.
Not sure why you're being downvoted. Traveling abroad is really good for one's growth. Might not be the best for the team's on-field success, but these must be fun trips and I'm sure I would have enjoyed them if I could attend.
ON LARRY JOHNSON
"I am so excited to not get beat in recruiting by him."
I literally LOL'd.
May be the first political-ish post on 11W that doesn't result in a ban. Kudos.
I think he killed a guy at 1:21.
He also would have been ejected at least twice in college football.
Boom. I read from Birm's article that he has an uncle who played in the NFL and another family member who played in college so he has the genes. Given the improvement already, here's to hoping he has a good career here.
Regarding recruiting philosophies, Coach Day probably doesn't have the gravitas nationally as Urban and probably won't until he wins a national championship. Probably makes sense for him to focus on Ohio kids for a class or two until he has that reputation.
Adults shouldn't tweet, let alone subtweet (how is that a real thing?).
Now get off my lawn.
So I guess Tate is confident Fields will be eligible?
So reading about Raymond's wife got me thinking, what jobs do our coaches' wives have? I never considered that the holdup would be because his wife is a CEO at a big company only because coaching is such a 24/7 profession that all of the coaches I know about seem to have stay-at-home wives or wives with more flexible jobs. I doubt coaching at LSU is less intense than at OSU so curious how they manage to have such high end careers with a family.
Someone with a Twitter account send this to Coach Day!
Agreed. Urban helped recruit the OL to cover for Stud. Day can do the same thing as long as Stud is doing a good job developing his guys.
Do we know if this is Greg's defensive scheme with input from the other coaches? Any idea on what he runs? I saw the old article on 11W that Ross Fulton wrote but does anyone know of a more recent writeup?
Spooner, when you create the next recruiting thread, can you also create a coaching thread? It's all a jumbled mess and would be helpful to split them into 2. I'd do it myself but I'm sure I'm not up-to-date on all the coaching rumors so it wouldn't be a very good OP.
Gannon from the Colts is interesting. Below is a link to an article from Andy Benoit at SI (their scheme guy) who talks about the Colts defense. I love this quote if Day wants Gannon to bring their defense to OSU.
That identity: a straightforward defense with highly schemed D-line tactics in front of traditional zone coverages. An offense built around quick-strike passes, so Luck could throw the ball before his young O-line had a chance to let pass rushers hit his repaired shoulder.
What happens with a well-coached, straightforward schematic approach is young players learn quickly on the fly and become more efficient. Not only do those young players have less to think about, but with their scheme being so simple, opponents tend to attack it the same ways each week. Players start anticipating certain things, which makes them play faster still. For defensive and offensive units that grow quickly, coaches become comfortable enough to implement more schematic wrinkles. Their simple scheme gains subtle, valuable texture, and that’s when a team can really take off.
I'd be happy to bring in any former player interested in coaching but without experience as a GA but never for an actual coach position.
Bosa #1 to Arizona
Haskins #2 to [WHOEVER GIVES SF THE MOST DRAFT PICKS]
FIFY. SF is going to pull in more picks than the Rams got from the Redskins.
Looks like Berry still remembered some of what Coach Johnson taught him.
No from OSU or from Bolden?
FYI, reading the article, reading any number of posts in this thread, and googling Justin Fields would have given you an answer in the amount of time it took you to write the post.
And yes, he's someone you take and figure out the rest later.
