Looks like a middle school team
This is a great story. The one thing Urban has taught us is that a successful team has to have a culture that everyone buys into. Fleck gets this and is doing it there. I look for Minnesota to be very tough in the future.
Freeze and Ole Miss brought this all on themselves. Behind the scenes they were blaming the recruiting stuff on Nutt and ruining his reputation, so he said enough. Freeze is a sleezeball. He was more than happy to smear an innocent man to keep himself out of trouble. Whether Nutt could or not handle the head coaching job has no bearing on what they were doing too him. He didn't deserve to have shit that he didn't do piled on him.
I don't know if he knew about Freeze's hooker habit or not but I bet he was smart enough to know that if they went though his cell phone records he would find something.
Totally agree. There was an article on here a while ago (I think it was on here) about Kevin Wilson's philosophy on offense. We are not going to ground and pound. We are going to play so fast the defense won't know how to respond. I am sure there will be a good bit of running but there will also be misdirection, short passes, long passes and more passes to the tight end.
The highlight of the season for me will be Kevin Wilson against Don Brown. The best against the best.
OK not broken.....sprained? He said it wasn't broken, not that there was no injury.
All of that is really cool, but what matters to me is wins. JT is third behind Rex Kern and Craig Kenzel in winning percentage against top 10 teams. If he has a good year this year he will pass Krenzel. He will have all the records above plus he will be the winningest big game QB since Rex Kern at 5-0.
This is at least the second time Price has mentioned Burrell when he has been interviewed. It seems like Price has really taken him under his wing. This bodes well for the internal part of the line.
PSU was unranked when we played them. Personally I think the 2015 scum game should be considered elite but I eliminated all subjectivity and only included what the ranking committees said.
I stated above that I define elite as a team ranked inside the top ten at the time of the game. But for your information:
2014 MSU - ranked 7
2015 Notre Dame ranked 8
Wisconsin ranked 8
Nebraska ranked 9
TTUN Ranked 3
2015 MSU ranked 9
2016 Clemson ranked 3
Other notables that I did not count
2015 TTUN ranked 12
Oklahoma ranked 14
You are right on the 1968 team. My mistake.
Yes he has taken too much heat. I totally agree. For you stat geeks, here is one that I find interesting. Going back to 1968, if you rate a QB by how well he plays against elite teams, JT rates very high. I define an elite team as a team that is ranked inside the top ten when the game is played.
Rex Kern - 5 - 0 = 100%
Craig Krenzel - 5 - 1 = 83%
JT Barrett - 5-2 = 71%
Pretty good company.
JT is also the only one of the 3 who has not lost to TTUN. Kern lost to TTUN in 1968 when they were ranked 12th and Krenzel's one loss against a top 10 team came against them in 2003 when they were ranked 5th.
Weber averaged 6 yards per carry last year. He averaged 4 yards per carry receiving. If 4 YPC makes you a bell cow, he is already there.
In Texas guns are allowed in any bar or restaurant that makes less than 50% of its revenue from alcohol sales. If a place has a 50% sign on the door you can't bring a gun in, which in my mind is smart. If the primary product is alcohol, not allowing guns is s good idea, Also, if you get stopped for an alcohol related indent like public intoxication or DUI, and you have a gun in the vicinity, you lose your concealed carry license. We should be held to a higher standard.
Luke is going to get some kids who no one knew at the time was among the best in the state, no matter what their ratings reflected. He has always been able to find those hidden gems like Darren Lee. When he can land a few of those he will turn that program around.
Not sure Urban has always been perfect at adapting schemes. I think Herman was not maybe not Urban. In 2014 Herman adapted the offense to a new QB style when Barrett was lost. In 2015 after Herman left Urban/Beck/Warriner tried to shoehorn a 6'5", 250 pound QB into a read option offense. We all know how 2015 worked out.
Saw the announcement of the Zeke bobbleheads on the morning news on Friday. I ordered mine immediately. Can'r wait to get it.
He can hang out with Randy Gregory with all the free time they have
Tracy got a haircut. He looks good.
I understand what Peters is saying he should find a better person to compare himself to than Ray Lewis. He was probably too young to know about the real Ray Lewis the person.
If he was butt hurt that OSU fans did not root for him as an "Ohio Kid" just wait for his reception next time. And as far as not being recruited by the big in state school......19-6 should give him an indication why.
