I too would ask about 3rd stringers. It sounds like he wants to know if coaches still coach them like first stringers. Coaches still need to coach everybody regardless of where they are on the depth chart. What would have happened with third string Cardale was ignored.
Keep on working and good things will happen. Do not take nothing for granted.
Let the freshmen play. Keep them happy or otherwise we are just developing them for the transfer portal.
Time flies, juniors already. I remember when we were still recruiting them.
I always look forward to see who the next stars will be. I don't mind players leaving early because we recruit very well and I like seeing new blood(good or bad). Coach Day needs to keep the pipeline going. Besides,if you don't give new blood a chance they will transfer somewhere else now.
If he went to Ohio State he would have had only two choices. Work your tail off and produce or get out of the way of someone else. His sack numbers might of been higher as teams had to throw more against us because of the trailing(except this past season). I think he would have been a monster here with the people around him. We just have to hear him because we didn't see him.
Heard some noise about the possibility of Tate Martell along with some other Qbs being on Netflix posing with plates of weed. I don't believe it or else someone here or ESPN would definitely have said something. Hopefully fake news. I just don't trust Martell right now.
Two friends from work are season ticket holders up north and they hate him. They want McCaffery to start. They don't even know when they already have the best ha ha. Poll them up north and they take Haskins in a heartbeat. They would still lose because Harbaugh would still screw it up. How in anybody's world is Patterson ranked higher than Haskins. What do we have to do to get even a little respect?
Even if Baldwin is not the starter you have to get him in games to keep him happy and more importantly have him ready in case we have to go to plan B.
A friend of mine who is a fan of them up north said Mattison was too old and was glad he left. I told him we weren't going suit him up and play. He is such a tool when it involves his team. Are all *ichigan fans this so out of touch with reality?
Why wait? Let's roll now. Damn winter!!
Some good news. Just tuned into signing day for 1 second and nothing but Alabama. Don't know how they do it but this is ridiculous. I am happy with what we have but hopefully we have no drop off on performance. Our coaches need to work their butts off to get elite talent.
I hate when kids change their minds this late on the game. I know its their choice but when you say its because of coaching changes then quit then,not a month or two later. We will survive but I won't be wishing him luck. He should have moved on earlier.
A friend told me he was kicked out of school. Not sure why but this guy told me he might just be the first. My friend is a season ticket holder for them up north so he gets some inside info.
I mostly trust our coaches when it comes to player being ready. A friend of mine was related to Garreon Conley, and when I asked why he was not playing his first year,his uncle told me Conley told him he wasn't ready. The coaches know more than we do. Just because a player is a 5star doesn't mean he is ready from day 1. Some are but most arent. On offense maybe because you dictate the plays they can do but not on defense.
Jones is a huge man and project. But I wonder who is supposed to mold him??? Our line coach is not getting the results out of what we already have,and these weren't projects. I don't mean to hate on this,but our line play for run blocking wasn't very good.
If the offense would have reached"our"expectations we would never have had to punt once. But,OSU has always been able to run the ball,check out our Heismans,so hopefully we will be able to equally be able to run or pass. I want our team to do what they want,not what the defenses will give us.
I think some players fall for all the bells and whistles some coaches tell them,then when they get to school there is no more sweet talk. Then when you think you are entitled to move up the next class comes in with promises made to them. Nothing is guaranteed regarding playing time or who starts. Even us fans want to see the best in those spots and not someone who is owed.
I thought we had these sec teams earlier,I think Georgia,Tennessee,and Vanderbilt(?)backed out before. TCU did for this year coming up. Nobody wants us in the Shoe and the will never come up here in November. That is when they schedule their traditional powerhouses Troy and The Citadel. We got to go easy on their strength of schedule.
Who but Ohio State would need to overhaul an entire defense that went 13-1. It did need to be done though as it was one of our worse in a long time. I hope everyone can mesh and dominate as a whole.
Schools may not be able to stockpile talent like they once did. It kinda sucks but if you did everything the school wants and they go out and get the next big thing you might get buried on the depth chart. I don't blame them for leaving but when do you compete for your spot instead of hoping for a participation trophy. Playing time is not guaranteed. I don't know how this will affect how you recruit a position like QB. Will the ones on hand leave because you recruit one for that class? In today's society nobody wants to wait their turn,everything is now.
If this is true,do we raid Michigan one more time and bring back Ed Warriner. He did very well for us as an OL coach. Just wondering.
My Michigan friends at work won't talk to me right now. I just have the biggest smile when I look at them. Now they want Harbaugh and Don Brown out. I think they are planning to dig Bo up and try that. It couldn't hurt.
Great hires. They just need to remember what side their bread is buttered now.
Urban wanted Mattison on his first staff and he hired him in Florida. That is good enough for me. As for his age,the landscape for college coaches is they don't stay more than 2-3 years anyway unless your Bud Foster down at V Tech. Besides with this staff,when we win it all everybody will be poaching us then.
