I think Davis being in the Pros developed teaching techniques that assumes that the player already has 4 years of successful play at the college level and also has 40-60 hours per week to refine their technique / watch film / etc. In the end, he just didn't know how to teach college players in a manner for them to be successful.
I think a better term for the first 2 years of Schiano's defense is "Schiano-Fickell's" unit. Fickell was at least an equal factor as first-round talent for making the defense work. Fickell either found a way to uncomplicate the scheme for the LB's or else kept Schiano from being his own worst enemy by over-complicating things.
Bad Cal Poy, bad boy...
The Athletic Department should at least add a "convenience fee" bonus to Hartline's salary since they won't have to deal with Zach Smith issues throughout the year.
Ah... nothing like a Buck68 comment on an early Monday morning to get you flying to the coffee pot for that 2nd cup. ;)
Complaints all last year was the staff was paying favorites over those more talented and players didn't fit the scheme. Funny to hear complaints/apprehension that the current staff is evaluating the players and wanting to fit the scheme to the players' abilities. Different issue if they haven't figured it out by fall, but this is exactly what a new staff should be doing in my mind.
Also, Grinch never would've been kept in Day's defense - he is adamant about running a 3-4 defense.
El Guapo gonna eat!
I wonder during the regular season if Fuller is ever out if they move White back into a boundary safety role.
When the earth is a frozen rock orbiting a lifeless sun would still be too soon.
Yes but a Buckeye fan's thoughts would immediately know it was referring to Young rather than seeing the conversation through those ugly maize / blue - colored glasses ;)
"Chase" is referring to Chase Young, not Winovich.
I think the article entirely missed the possibility of Brendon White moving down from safety to be a hybrid ala Darron Lee. Granted this would only happen if some of the other safeties take off. White is turning into a really good player but hard to see him or Fuller as true FS - they are both more in the SS mold.
I, too, would love to see Mitchell, Browning, Harrison as our starting 3.
So let's alter the statement to "you are WAY TOO efficient in the use of your time and put the rest of us to shame"
Anyone else wondering why Drue Chrisman is in the photo of the skull session and that punter was about the only position not mentioned in the article?
Awww ... they corrected the title of the article. People reading this thread later will have no idea on earth what we're talking about.
TennisU I love it.
Best of luck !!
Shouldn't that be "Bets of luck?"
Hotshots have nothing to do with the weather. It's the name of the firefighters that fight the big wild fires.
... and I have 2 friends that are fire chiefs with over 30 years each. Thanks for clarifying and giving me a "duh - I should've thought of that" moment. They are absolutely some of the bravest people I know.
that most of the teams seem to have recruited regional talent to make the home connection more appealing, and that a few of the teams have puzzling names.
San Diego Fleet - Navy town (will see them at home soon)
Memphis Express - Fed Ex HQ
Orlando Apollos - I'm thinking connection is Cape Canaveral / Apollo missions launched from there
Birmingham Iron - was big iron works there in civil war - area was founded on iron plants since limestone/coal/iron were all local to area
Arizona Hotshots - weather
Atlanta and San Antonio - no idea

I wonder if Urban takes up anything in coaching that he goes to the NFL and the Patriots - lots of friends there and losing a game in a season isn't so devastating.
I still count Noah Spence, too, in that cavalcade of stars in our DE history.
