further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Oregon-Oregon St. SEC Championship Game. #1 & #2 trying to stay that way. Edit: Hopefully the B12, ACC Championships, and, uh, Apple Cup and U-Conn/S. Florida games are at least closer than the afternoon games.
Article on the speed/pace/tempo of the Oregon offense. It's what I was hoping for when RR got here... hope we can get there if he stays.
The season is ending too quickly. Let's relish the few games we have left and hope for some interesting games. Have fun and let's keep it about the actual games and not about, well, the other stuff.
Looking forward to the 2011 season, we know that the offense will be Ghengis Khan scorched earth level good. What the defense will be is another matter. The Offense took a huge leap forward because of the weaponization of the QB position. The 2010 defense is eerily similar to the 2009 offense. So who will make the jump that Drob made? I can think of 4 possibilities;
T- Wolf :Going into the season he was considered the most talented guy on the Defense before AMSHG smote him with fiery vengeance. He has the respect of the team, and shows the leadership that Denard possesses. With the added bonus of being a proven playmaker.
Kenny Demens: A guy that did not get onto the field until late in the season, and then showed instant impact. He is a solid playmaker that seems to be in the mold of wolverine LB's of yore.
Cam Gordon : Position switch extraordinaire, with boatloads of talent, yet is as raw as the day is long. Flashes of Brilliance ( Drob first snap against WMU) yet, lets a tightend get behind him ( Drob int against Iowa 2009).The guy is a playmaker that shows that he will be a beast....eventually. Added bonus, he made the all conference academic squad.
Courtnet Avery: Talented freshmen, pressed into duty to early ( wow eery resemblance). He has the requisite speed for the secondary. He made bad decisions at times, but that is to be expected from a freshman. He has gotten better with the more games he has played.
Who do you think it will be?
Zook's record at Illinois:
|* With 2010 bowl still to be played.|
I have not heard anything official, so I thought this may have been a bit premature. But discouraging.
