This is where you really hope he’s grown. He’s the vet here. Facing a, albeit talented, freshman. He needs to be the one drawing the fouls tonight.
We keep bringing up the 40 time. I haven’t watched the tape, but does he look like he plays faster than that? A 40 is a fickle thing it you’re not a track guy. I didn’t run track until my senior year for the sole purpose of getting “faster”. I learned about proper sprint technique & all that. Dropped a couple tenths off the track time but I played the game at that speed already.
Explosive. For instance, dude can dunk about as well as anyone on the BBall roster.
Not Uncle Rico-ing here, but I’ve been on both sides of over-complicated D-scheme. Many many moons ago I had crazy tackle numbers from a see-ball, get-ball scheme at a traditional MLB spot. In college, they switched to a 3-3-5 going into my sophomore year. Toooooo much thinking. And not just bc it was a new scheme. Everything was overcomplicated. Blitz packages, adjustments. I know Day is coach speaking but it is 85% the scheme just letting the boys play fast.
I suffered a high ankle in college on a rainy day practice. Non-contact. Slipped on my plant foot in the mud and my whole 210 lbs or so just rolled right over it. I felt a pop. It hurt so bad I thought it was my knee at first. I was in a boot for a week and it took me probably 5-6 weeks and adjusting to ankle braces before I felt 90% comfortable again. Maybe 80%, I felt like it was constantly on my mind waiting for that pain to shoot up my leg. Mid-2000s....I’m getting old.
Even Coach O said Ehlinger is Texas’ Tim Tebow. I think he’s Texas Tom’s JT Barrett. This guy isn’t a Heisman winner. But he’s like Novocain. However, LSU has countered with Geaux Jeaux. I think our hometown kid leads this thing out.
Am I the only one who sees this Miami cat having freshman struggles and is glad that we won't have to deal with the "put Tate in" noise. Miami fans will be on that hard this week. Especially with how poor he played this 4th quarter. Now, JF has better talent around him, but there will be mistakes for sure. He'll just have to grow through them without the QB2 noise.
Is it just me (and I know this is blasphemous), but does he look a bit like Tom Brady in the cover photo? All I've been thinking since he was named a captain is that if Brady wasn't at the tail end (Belichick too you'd think), then he'd end up winning like 4 super bowls as Tom's go-to undrafted slot WR.
Shame he won’t get to work with Conley, who’s still underrated.
Fun fact: Gibbs is also an Otterbein football legend as an All-American TE.
Neat. Something else to hate about Alabama. Hornets nests the size of VWs.
Blame that douche UCLA washout and his stupid lawsuit for NCAA.
Also, Madden gameplay has been straight trash the last few years. I don’t give those bastards my money bc they don’t listen to their gamer base and it’s just a rinse and repeat crapshow with a new coat of paint.
Lmao. I’ll just wait for the thread.
I got bored reading this thread. All I got was that none of you fat degenerates ever did anything incredibly stupid at 19 but are mostly willing to turn a blind eye to a 30 something “alleged” wife beater (we know he did some shit, let’s be real here, just bc she’s also batshit and couldn’t follow thru on charges doesn’t mean he’s innocent). He’s a vindictive cunt with a myriad of fucking issues. Here’s hoping he doesn’t hurt the only thing we actually care about, the fucking program.
This much ado about nothing. Think of our very own standard at the WHAC. You can’t wear blue, obviously, but if you’re given gear to wear is it not OSU gear? This is standard at pretty much every big time program I reckon. Just looks weird, and mostly on Texas’ behalf.
Good lord, Derek White is an absolute unit. (up from 197 in a year??....I hope they tested this man).
Urban cleared it up in the presser. Olave.
Still trying to figure this out, because the announcers said "Babb", but i thought it was Olave doing the windmill run after the TD.
Is Urban hamstringing Day? I don’t get what’s going on with the offense. The D, on the other hand, can Vrabel and Fick come back?
How does #6 vs #7 not end up in a primetime slot? Do they have a noon agreement like The Game?
Was going to say this. I can take a down year at HW with that cavalry on the way.
I was trying to compare some track stats to current or ex-players (like Teddy), just trying to match up the two things above. Ted for, for instance, ran shorter sprints and hurdles (13.26 once in the 110, not far off the HS record). Via athletic.net
Zeke: 300m Hurdle pr: 37.52 (2012)
Parris: 200m pr: 22.05 (2014) (not same event but just a reminder that he fast)
Denzel Ward: he fast trust me
Sheffield: 300m Hurdle pr: 36.34 (2014...heeee fast) wonder if that was wind aided bc his other season bests are much slower. His 110s aren’t much behind Ginn’s HS numbers tho.
This is an exercise in futility. We are so damn spoiled.
While I hate Michigan Jesus as much is anyone, I THINK the response to the B1G question meant to come out more along the lines of “conference play is tough in any conference; teams are familiar with each other and it presents constant challenges”. However, I can articulate my thoughts so...
Well at least we get to look forward to Tennessee Jeff screaming into his phone for 5+ minutes on a certain 97.1 The Fan radio show every week soon. “Hahaha what a wild and crazy guy” no. He’s an idiot and I change the channel every time.
