Yep. I kinda miss the days of the one back offense featuring a big, heavy hitter back there.
I see your Dayne and raise you a Mike Alstott. Remember him?
I'll second that, LCT. Hate ND but Rocket is in the top handful of Offensive players I've ever seen. He was some shit. I recall Bill Walsh using the phrase "functional speed" when describing him. Sounds about right.
I agree with your first sentence. He can be effective in a box. But we're talking about the best LB in the nation award here, not simply serviceable in certain situations. This is shocking.
Agreed. Looks like a bunch of people missed that one one. He's a pain in the ass, respectfully. Good player.
Yeah, well, “With academics and football, you can’t get nothing better than this."...
Um, okey doke.
Problem is, they've been asleep for 120 years at RU.
Absolutely correct re: the DMV and PSU, Hove (as expected). Either youth or a short memory are to blame for thinking that UMD recruiting took a shot when Lockley was chased. JoePa made his living recruiting that area when PSU was Independent, once upon a time, and his biggest recruiting foes in that area were Bobby Bowden at FSU and Beamer at VaTech! No one at UMD has been able to keep recruits home during the last 40 years. Locksley is irrelevant. Raiding that area is an age old tale and certainly nothing new.
Somehow Billy The Groomsman couldn't manage to parlay 20+ yrs of NFL experience into a competent LB unit, even with UFM's recruiting prowess in tow. Go figure, the new guys have got things rolling smoothly.
J Thomas is a Dantonio recruit if there ever was one.
No offense, I understand and agree, however, where has that gotten them, exactly? Sure, ND has been in the CFP but they've gotten their doors blown off. Urban never recruited against MSU, ND or certainly UK. He always had the SEC and Clemson in mind. UFM recruited big picture.
Agreed, NHB. I'm positively bullish on this year's OL. May have some kinks to work out early but come Nov they have a chance to be dominant.
I'll take Tress because I'll always take Tress, warts and all. He's my guy.
Sarcasm. Also poking fun at how their respective supporters, and perhaps those schools themselves, will spin events.
Congratulations to ISU, Toledo, and especially Coach Ash at RU for stealing one away from The Ohio State Buckeyes.
Arm strength: Dolo
Accuracy: Haskins, hat tip to Germaine
Pocket: prolly Troy
Ath: Braxton in a runaway
Intangibles: JTB was a warrior and leader, due respect to DH for @ UM, @ PSU @ UMD. Brass.
Very true about side effects. That's the biggest reason I only take meds as a last resort. However, if your doc get you the right one it can be a huge help in getting through this temporary situation. Good luck, we're here for ya.
Sorry to hear this, Beast. I recommend you go see a doc, even your general practioner if you have one. I'm not one for meds, but there are a bunch of pharmaceutical options that can help slow a racing brain down a bit just to take the edge off until perspective improves. Many are very affordable as they are available as generics - Prozac, Wellbutrin, etc generics. Had to go that route myself many years ago as a young man. Helped me out big time. Wondered why I suffered as long as I did while trying to go it alone. See a doc, buddy. Your current situation is temporary.
Toby, the DV is from me. You get what you pay for. This is a free site. There's one dude down there covering the entire event. Your comment is unfair and sucks.
Any time the Bucks get a win over ND & UM is a great time. Congrats to MM and the Buckeye staff.
Exactly zero are in the barn, just as with every other school at this time. Verbal commitments are nice to have, but they are all still circling the barn, rather than inside. Roughly 5 months still to go.
Even when UM wins, they lose. Awesome.
Exactly correct, Mtrotb. People forget that UM fought for and stole him from Bama at the last minute. Wild.
Thorough coverage, TL. Thanks for sharing.
Your gif game is getting pretty #skrong, KB. This may be your best yet.
Congrats to JR and the Buckeye staff (and KBonay, too).
