This is where Holtman shows what a great coach he is... I think we are playing next week... we will see.. but this team needed some time off and a break.. they didn't play poorly against TTUN nor PSU.. both games came down to the last minute.. only the game @ PSU got away from them...
I think what is compelling to UGa is potential 20 win seasons and ZERO NCAA noise... I think the later along with a reasonable track record for success is a win for them.. many of these SEC schools (aside for UT and UK) have really small arenas and basketball isn't even as important as baseball is to them. the SEC is a good landing spot for TM and he already has Georgia ties in recruiting... as well as some of the Academies in florida.. pulling them to Georgia not as tough as pulling them to Ohio.. and again.. he just needs to make the dance two of every 5 years... and do that twice.. so 4 in 10 years.. and he can ride off into the sunset... this is not unlike the Lovie Smith hire for Ilinois IMO
It would be interesting if the NFL did the Hall of Fame game each year with one of these concepts... for instance.. trying no facemask... then widen this to more of the pre season.. I think you are right.. it wouldn't impact the game in terms of why we love it so much.. but would be a dramatic impact in terms of how safe it is.
Yes sir - wife doesn’t golf and it’s hard to go to these world tournaments when one caddy doesn’t know a thing abkut golf haha
Yes sir - that is kind of my point - calling the NFLPA out by floating the MCL would make it obvious what this is - largely a money grab...
but if you can make the game safer - why not do that too
Thanks for the reply - I just hope that there could be some honest discussions between the players and the league - the game could be safer (the neuro shield being a very inexpensive part of a solution) so let’s make it safer and let’s put all options on the table even maximum career length - so the NLFPA can’t have it both ways and this is not a bargaining chip but a discussion to provide real solutions to maintain the viability of a great sport.
as someone mentioned- the average career length is 3 years to the MCL may not even come into play - and football today is very different than the game played before 1980 - I watched the 75 AFC Title Game and when Lynn Swan gets knocked out - mean joe free drags him off the field - unconscious with his toes dragging - that is not happening today - I just believe there is a framework to make the game work... if one can take the agendas out...
They will not put a slumping Alabama in when the SEC is so weak and they were dominated...
i think the bigger challenge will be actually beating Wisconsin- they will not roll over - they have a different coach and they remember 59-0 - this will be an enormous challenge. They have the best young DC in football and we have a DC very likely to take the Ark or Tennessee job in the next week.
As The King said TCB !
Seems to me there was little focus in the meeting rooms ... the exact opposite of the previous two weeks.
I wonder if this was another prime time night game - players would have actually been more dialed in... its over and done with now... hopefully a lesson learned all the way around...
I'm talking about this year with 5 star QB from Hawaii Tua T... just started working him in for the Fresno State game
seems like UM3 may be doing this starting this weekend
I wold agree... this is not all on JT... I feel this is the weakest group of WR's since Vince Workman had to be moved to WR when Cris Carter and Nate Harris left before the 87 season started....
Can't really tell if this is a JTB issue until one tries another option during a real game situation.. you stated that we tried that and it didn't work.. well ... UM3 tried this in 2006/7 and won a NC.... over us even... If this is so bad for chemistry.. why is Saban doing this right now.. with no losses this year and a QB who only lost one.. and that was in the last second of the NC game...
I think this can work and is our only path to the playoff at this point.. to have a relief pitcher ready for the second half of big games.. and to your point.. we need to figure some other things out on O for sure... our WRs need to grow up in a hurry.. as do your TE's..
buy my books on Amazon :-) Go Bucks.. and good luck.. he'll come around..
Training Camp with the 2018 Indy Colts... it will be on HBO not Amazon..
The DJ Durkin experience will be on Amazon in 2018
Well done ... I remember all of those things - my 8 year old daughter remembers too - an at the start of he 4th quarter just she and I are watching as mom and the younger one have retired.. and after another ineffective pass play she asks me "Dada - why does JT take so long to make decisions". - JT will go down as my of my all time favorite Buckeyes and UM3 also one of my all time favorites- all I am asking is to have a mix like UM3 himself did at Florida when they crushed us in 2006/7 - he had a senior CJ Leak and a frosh named Tebow which he rode to the title and ironically the signing of Cam Newton that February.
To me the sensible solution is that JT start every game and have a pre established first half rotation and go with the hot hand in the second half and if the situation calls for ball control - ride JT home...
JT has an opportunity to be a real leader in this complicated situation- thoughts?
Thanks again as always for the overwhelming support of my books... the response from the peeps at 11W is always great.. hope to keep the momentum up - but what a great community this is!
Definitely must get... I spoke at several elementary schools in Central Ohio in 2014 and the kids really enjoyed the books. The teachers liked the fact that there was a lot of history in the books as well as sports to keep the kids so inclined interested. Good luck down there!
Glad you enjoyed them.. thanks for the kind words sir! GoBucks
many thanks for the kind words sir...
Thanks for all your support.. and YES.. that's my typo for the 2014 TTUN score.. haha.. enjoy the books and I'd love to hear your feedback on them... Go Bucks!
