Prince was not great at setting the perimeter on pass protection in a lot of situations. I wonder if he might be better suited to play inside, similar to the transition Alex Boone made. Seemed to work quite well there, any thoughts?
Makes my heart warm... excited to see these guys light it up in the fall!
@kbonay, Campbell is definitely and up & comer... he will be a big name soon enough. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s the next coach at usc (just a hunch)
He’s a class act... it doesn’t make me want to beat them any less. Bucks 38- kitties 17. Haskins becomes the odds on favorite for the Heisman after this week.
Was it just me or did it seem like a no huddle tempo offense would’ve helped them get into a groove? I think it was just a snail paced attack that hurt them Saturday. Joe looks like a grinder, has to get some better play out of his receivers... saw a few go routes where the defender dictated their path to the ball (or lackthereof)
I want big hits. Lame.
He reminds me of a less athletic Seantrel Henderson(not a compliment). I’ll be surprised if he gets offered. Not trying to be critical, but he’s just a big, slow moving body that would get eaten alive at the next level. Best wishes to him though!
After the last 4 weeks, it’s never felt better. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, can’t wait for Saturday!!!
MJ moving to center is a smart move... I think MP will be great, but LT scares the sh*t out of me. Anyone else in the same boat?
Haha I’m with you. Truth be told, I wanted Burrow to win the competition... The limited tape we have on either, it seemed to me that he just had better touch on the flat and intermediate routes. I just wish him well and only want him to lose one game at the end of the season ;)
Beyond excited for this kid. Two teams to root for this season! #alwaysabuckeye #isitsaturdayyet?!
Has anyone heard when LSU is announcing the winner of the QB competition? Sorry for commenting on this article, just figured I’d check.
Ps, 5 more days! #gobucks
Haha just a buddy that knows some people is all... I don’t doubt it just didn’t know if that had been floated out by anyone for confirmation.
I’d upvote this but don’t have the stickers yet
Meh, irrelevant... but heard that Drake wanted to fire him, the BoT wanted immediate reinstatement and he and Urbs got into it... the lack of a handshake between the two on stage after Drake put his hand out make me wonder if it’s true?
Has anyone heard that Drake and Urban got into a shouting match to the point that Shelley had to be called in to calm Urban down?
They might as well have been chanting “shame, shame, shame” when they forced urban out on stage last night. Absolute joke of a presser. I just wish Urbs would’ve taken a page out of Marshawn Lynch’s media playbook.
Rule 1 we learned in college: always be early.
Rule 2. ALWAYS PRAISE YOUR OPPONENTS.
Why does the media get so frustrated? If you want dramatic quotes that make for juicy stories on a regular basis, I heard 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in D.C. is a hot bed for them!
Snapping isn’t the issue, it’s about leverage. o-line and d-line coaches always say “low man wins”. A 6’0” nose has a natural advantage over a 6’7” center all day. MJ will have to learn how to be quick with the snap, take his first step and not get pushed back.
They are sexy. The kid is more developed than the average fan can see. I don’t care about his weight, his technique is what matters in PP. run blocking is more of a concern when gaining leverage at 280lbs... his footwork speaks for itself. I don’t think he redshirts, and will win the starting job outright by the heart of the big ten portion of the schedule.
Any word on Petit-Frere working with the 1’s? From what I’ve seen in his film, he should be in the mix from the start of the season... reminds me of Tyron Smith with his technique.
Urban will continue coaching and will be back next week. I think he finishes his contract and sails off into the sunset a rich man. #urbsagainsttheworld
I was the biggest critic of Isaiah in 2016. He’s made me a believer and then some. His pass protection technique has improved dramatically. I’m gladly eating crow and anxious to see the strides he’s made from last year to this year.
Too many fans don’t realize how difficult it is to develop proper technique at the college level. It’s a discipline that takes years to perfect. I predict a large stride in run blocking this season, some first team all big ten honors and a surprisingly high draft position in 2019. Studs is definitely earning his paycheck, I hope he sticks around and continues to develop these guys!
I must be watching different film than most... He has potential, but I’m not buying the hype. He’s indecisive, and throws up jump balls. Extends plays and misses his windows where receivers are wide open. Anyone remember the kid from Massillon that got the OSU tattoo just to get pushed out of the class and end up at UK? I have to keep in mind that it was sophomore film, but I think it’s worth keeping an eye on before we get too excited. Just my humble opinion.
