Yet solid, no?
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Yet solid, no?
A bit OT but I do not feel like starting a new thread. A buddy of mine just texted me and said he read on some message board that Willie Henry is supposedly a potential secret commit to Michigan. He is a 3 star DT from Glenville with mostly MAC offers and a few offers from other B1G schools. He is 6'3 270. Another DT would be a nice addition, imo.
If true, that sounds fine to me. I'd rather have Eddie what's-his-name from DC, but having some filler on the D-line (especially if he blows up unexpectedly like Frank Clark) is an OK use of the "last scholarship" IMO.
If we can end the class with Reeves, Grant, Diamond and/or Kozan, and this new guy, Id be thrilled. Like you said, a filler on the dline would be great, eslecially if he is an under the radar type guy.
5 star? Are you high?
Mike Debord as OC because his playcalling always kept the defense guessing.
Greg Robinson as DC because his hair is awe inspiring.
I see what you did there...
I'd have some personal criteria, of course, like how he pointed at their pictures. You know, single, double, did he say tremendous, and whether or not he could feel football when he looked.
OC: Al Borges
DC: Greg Mattison
I would then resign on the condition that the job be given to Brady Hoke. I think he'd know how to run the team a lot better than I would.
I'd resign and make dave brandon make brady hoke and co. the coaches, the stress of the job would make my head asplode
Malzahn and Mattison.
Daisy Marie as OC and April O'neil as DC ... we wouldnt last long..might get 2 years tops..but it would be a great 2 years
I know I most people won't agree with this for obvious reasons, but Rich Rod and Greg. Rich rod would make a good offense coordinator, but defiantly not a head coach
who already "look like horrible weirdos for railroading him."
Rich Rod is not a bad OC, but I'm happy with Borges. He's already demonstrated more of a willingness to adapt to personnel. With Rich Rod's system, it's a struggle to move the ball until he gets the right QB.
On second thought I have to totally agree with that I was always unimpressed with how Rich Rod couldn't adjust to the talent he had. He only knew one way to do things and was unwilling or unable to deviate from that. Al has adjusted well with the talent that he inherited.
Howver when Rich Rod finally got his guys in on offense it was awesome. Just not what we are use to.
There was no talent hear on offense, Schilling was the only starter with any significant game experience, when RR got hear so why waste a year before installing your system? Borges had 10 returning starters from one of the top 10 offenses in the country. Early in the year he kept trying to force the under center stuff despite the fact that it didn't work (30+ yards of O against EMU in the first quarter).
"Why waste a year?" What was 2008, then? We couldn't move the ball at all and went 3-9. Steven Threet hated the Rich Rod offense and transferred right after the season ended, leaving us back at square one with no QB.
You can rationalize it how you want, but it seems that Rich Rod either doesn't know how to run anything other than his run-based spread, or doesn't want to run anything other than it. Either way, it means that his offense will only succeed when he has the right QB (and even then you have to live in fear of his QB getting injured).
Al Borges's offense may not have functioned well for one quarter against EMU, but it also put up 40 on Ohio. It ended up scoring more than the 2010 offense. I liked the way he adapted. And I'm confident as well that he'll further mold the offense to fit Devin Gardner's talents when he takes over, whereas I'm not sure how exactly Gardner (who is much less of a running threat than Denard) would have fit in Rich Rod's system. Not to mention that with Borges, we can actually recruit pro-style QBs like Shane Morris. There isn't just one QB type that can succeed under his tutelage.
Kirby Smart as the DC and Paul Chryst as my OC. (I prefer power football to spread)
Mike Hart as OC
Charles Woodson as DC
Don't forget Zoltan Mesko as special teams coach.
Jim Bollman as Offensive Coordinator, clearly.
A stuffed beaver wearing Greg Robinson's hair as Defensive Coordinator
You can't praise Bollman for one game when he broke all tendency and then bash DeBord, who did the same a couple of times (most notably against Florida).
DC: Lemar Woodley
OC: Brian Cook
DC: Greg Mattison
First, I'd picture myself with an apostrophe.
Rich Rod as OC, Mattison as DC
But it looks like we had a surprise visitor today....
I'd skip hiring coordinators and ask for a raise.
Calvin MaGee OC
Greg Mattison DC
Dan Ferrigno ST
go to hell
What am I pointing at?
An Crystal Ball
I would clone a bunch of Ditkas for positional coaches and players too. The end result would be an army of Ditkas!
or Ditka before the heart attack?
Rex Ryan DC
Bill Billicheck OC
You do realize Belichick was a defensive coach before becoming head coach, right?
i'd throw in a few names like woodley, woodson, brady, hart, edwards, mattison and hoke for my coordinators. hoke would handle double duties with his first coordinating position, as well as director of pointing.
I'd go with:
Bill Walsh as OC
Buddy Ryan as DC
then be a waterboy for the team.
Picture yourself as a poster on MGoBlog...WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU POST THIS!!?!?!?
Shut up dude post ur picks or get lost
Oc: bill Walsh
Dc: Gunther Cunningham
special teams: me
