I appreciated that they at least acknowledge that TCU backed out on us this year, which is why we don't have the marque non-conference matchup.  I usually always give them a listen because I like their rational takes and I appreciate their model.  It's a unique perspective and interesting.

Thanks for posting.  I actually think that your offense is going to be good, possibly on par with the 2006 offense good (minus Hart - as your running back situation is iffy currently).  Collins killed us last year and made very difficult catches consistently.  I have a feeling that this new offense will better suit the skill set of DPJ and as others have mentioned if Black can say healthy that gives you 3 guys that can take it the distance on a given play.  You return a lot on the offensive line and have a good line coach (at least he was when he was here).  I don't think the defense will be bad, but it will just be interesting to see how the change in offensive strategy affects how much the defense plays.  If you still are getting teams into 3 and out, it really doesn't matter.  My question is about whether Harbaugh will actually give up his power on the offense or not and allow Gattis to call plays.  If he does, I think there are enough pieces for the offense to be really good.

I played against Rod Smith and Tyler Eifert.  Rod was just a load.  I remember the coaches showing us his film and he was trucking people and out running dudes as this 6' 200lbs freshmen.  I don't remember Tyler being as dominant when I played him, but I've also tried my best to forget that game my senior year. lol.

I just read that article and laughed about the Ohio state talent on that dream team.  One of the best parts for me was that JSN was a late add to the event.

I get what you are saying, but I think something to consider is that because we ran strictly cover 1 man, teams would expect this and come up with offensive formations that would exploit the responsibilities of the defenders.  Do agree about the coaching aspect.  I don't think Billy Davis was that great of a fundamentals teacher and so everything snowballed.  You have poor teaching of proper technique needed to execute a scheme made more difficult by the way offenses were lining up to attack it.  

I think the thought is to just have a stingy defense similar to what Northwestern runs.  In that it is difficult to march up and down the field against them and they good talent, but not first round talent scattered throughout.

I'll take under on all 3.  The only one I'm not sure on is whether or not Miller will redshirt or not.  I don't think that Harrison will get enough snaps to get 6.5 sacks this season.  I could see him getting 3.  Same goes for Wilson, I think 400 yards would be the max for him with somewhere around 300 being more realistic.  We aren't going to pass the ball as much this year as in last year so all WR numbers are going to go down.

Everyone on here is complaining that they aren't going to tackle during the spring game and that they are charging money something that isn't what the spring game has been in the past. Give me a break.  Are you really that upset that you aren't going to watch or attend the game if able? 

I could care less, it will be the last glimpse of football we get until fall camp opens.
