I'm not sure I understand. Could you explain more? (didn't downvote either, just curious what you meant by that)
I don't think Clemson will have a down year at all. They return their QB and RB and sure they lost Higgens and Ross but they have recruited well at the WR position. Also the rest of the ACC is still not that good to be able to compete with them and overcome the massive talent differential.
Sure they lose a lot on their o-line and in looking through their classes they don't have many high rated lineman outside of Carman but that hasn't stopped them from having a decent oline before.
I mean he might have. Guys are going to give up catches. He played a lot of snaps last year and him getting burnt was not a constant occurrence. I believe the speed thing because if I remember correctly, when he did give up catches he was always right there on the guy.
Woooo! I'm so glad to hear Saban will be retiring within the next 5 years!
I'm curious to give that a listen, do you have a link or remember which show he was on?
Woah, that really sucks for him. I hope he gets healed up and goes pro :)
I was wondering why we weren't really in the conversation for Leigh. That makes much more sense now.
It is mind-boggling, I do think that in general special teams play and strategy has improved since then. Punters have gotten better with hang-time and not out kicking their coverage. I mean, look at our punt teams. The last few years we have limited return opportunities for opponents mostly because we rarely go 3 and out, but also because when we do punt it is sky high and our gunners get down there to basically force a fair catch.
Meanwhile down in the SEC, they are just laughing bc if you deny it and don't cooperate they can't do anything. Kansas is just going to be the sacrificial lamb for all schools. I mean UNC had fake classes for their athletes so they could be eligible to play but I guess that doesn't undermine the integrity of the student athlete. Nope, only paying players as part of the recruiting process undermines the game. I'm so tired of the inconsistency of the NCAA.
He is just so smooth with his movement. He makes it look effortless. I wouldn't be surprised to see him and Wilson put up big numbers this fall since they are really the only two proven guys out wide. In previous years, there have been 4-6 guys with a good amount of experience. This year it's two.
Lol, how do you know about the Charles River?

Bingo! It’s has seemed like every 5* they get is a superstar for them, which is just crazy and also why Michigan points to Clemson and thinks they can win a national title with their talent.
Really excited for Damon! I thought he played so well this past year and I'm glad to see his hard work and great play pay off!
I can't say I'm surprised.
Best of luck to him! I hope he is able to find a landing spot that is able to utilize his skill set.
While I agree and understand what you are saying, the safeties were lined up like 15 yards off the ball bc they didn't want to get beaten over the top. Which then led to Zeke getting all kinds of yards on the ground.
I'm confused as to why people are using him not being able to get a physical and as a result having a contract fall apart as an opportunity to sh*t on him and say "see I told you he was no good"
I watched Steve's original video and was initially confused as to what he was arguing but the more I thought about the more I realized that is conceding that there is a talent gap. However is also saying that there has always been a talent gap when you compare draft picks. Yet despite the talent gap, there have been periods where Michigan as been able to win handily (Cooper era). He is backhandedly saying it is all the coaching, without actually saying it is the coaching.
I'm really curious to see what their offense will look like with a new system, new transfer QB, and no Spring ball. I'm really hesitant to say they make huge jumps this year in the passing game.
WOOO!!! This is great news!
While I really would love to have them and am excited we are in a good place for them, I just don’t want them to go to Clemson.
Two things I want to point out as well, in 2013 Georgia was down and Kirby $mart hadn't taken over yet. Also, Clemson was just starting to emerge in the ACC and was not yet the recruiting power it is now. These two factors made it easier to go into the south and get guys. Throughout Urban's time here he went into recruiting hotbeds and got guys while the home team was down. Georgia, Texas, and California. Georgia has since righted the ship, but Texas and USC have not so we will keep going there and getting players.
I was hoping they would stay in the stone age on offense forever.
How? He is a junior. Same class as Okudah and wade
