"Another way Day can instantly become popular among the fanbase is doing what Chris Holtmann: exposing himself."
Yowza. Here I thought Harbaugh having sleepovers was bad! Now excuse me, I have to get back to teaching at a school where our goal is to make sure our students are mentally challenged (this was actually stated in a brochure a private school I used to work for put into circulation).
Way to kick off, what we hope to be, a series of BOOOOOMS!
BTW, I need to know Taylor's definition of a Big Ten frame if 6'6" and 299 at the age of 15 doesn't meet it! That's a big boy!
Agreed, which is why I feel these next two years are paramount for us when trying to make the TE more of a weapon while at the same time attracting the top TE recruits. If we can't, how can we continue to use that stale sales pitch and expect recruits to trust it?
I'm so interested to see what autonomy Day gives to someone like Wilson. You would think that the guy that coaches the tight ends and ultimately calls the plays, would know how to get "his" guys involved. If it can't happen with that scenario and a talent like Ruckert on board, I would have to believe it will truly never happen. Is it August yet?
Lol! I was just recently informed as to where or what the New Addition was...and I have been a middle school teacher in J'town for the last 12 years. Go Johnnies! Home of the 2nd best damn band in the land!
The speed was a given. I think if they do a 60 yard dash it's not even close. The biggest thing was though, the dude was catching EVERYTHING and catching them smoothly. Add in that his breaks were clean and he showed body control, he may be a lock as a late first round now. Great to see him destroy that combine. Odds A.Rodgers is throwing to him next year?
I like Tuf...as long as he doesn't have to cover someone in space. The guy can lead, diagnose plays, and tackle. If he truly can get quicker/faster, I look forward to having him man the middle again. What I REALLY hope for is that Browning can get coached up and put his athleticism on full display. In the end though, now that I think we have unbiased and knowledgeable coaches in place, I think we'll see the best 3 out there one way or the other. Get em' ready Al!
No downvotes here Brohio. I reserve those for people with completely out of line comments, not ones that simply differ from mine...and mine differs from yours. I personally love the hire. I thought he was a stud for Hoke, holding that team up for a relatively incompetent coach. He was the DC then, he is not the DC now. For us he will be the DC, not a position coach, which I think makes a bigger difference when it comes to recruits. At the same time, I think parents of players will love knowing this man will be working with their kids and he is known for being a stellar recruiter on top of that. Why wouldn't you want his knowledge paired with that of a younger, less experienced coach? Leave LJ to work with the line, Hafley to work with the defensive backfield, and hire a younger LB coach, and let Mattison lead when it comes to the scheme. Also, to answer your Draft Kings question, I would have to see who else I could "buy" (who is actually realistically available) but I can tell you this, Mattison would be towards the top of my list.
