I held out slight hope on Odoms. Damn. My favorite player.
RichRod Presser Tweets = Actual News
I love Odoms myself. Tough as nails and very dependable.
Hmmmm....this isn't negative enough for me. I think someone needs to ask him a dumb question to get him going.
You mean dumb like this?
Rosenberg: "So Rich...... Do you think you'll get fired like right after the game or do you think Brandon will wait a few days and then fire you?"
Or maybe Sharp asks it. Either way I would love to see RR come off the podium and just punch them in the head.
Unfortunately, the result would definitely be him getting fired.
The one about Gallon seems a bit odd since Devin seems a lot closer to Relf's (sp?) size and play style.
Did you miss the D. Gardner medical redshirt thing?
I didn't think that practicing had anything to do with one's ability to take a medical redshirt. I also don't think that Gardner is actually injured.
I didn't realize that medical redshirt involved not being able to practice either, which as I'm typing this makes perfect sense. Sorry for my idiocy
... is you can get a medical redshirt for a hangnail, so I don't think it has to do with his health... after all he was showing off his great dance moves, which could be difficult with a bad back. I think they may just want to go live on the qb (or close to live), and they can be more aggresive on Gallon.
I agree, but I don't think Angelique has a great sense in "good dance moves."
I guess the MSU QB must have had a problem with fumbles this year.
The reason gallon is simulating relf is due to his ability to execute the triple option. We haven't seen Denard do it this year and I imagine he has an issue executing the pitch. Msu uses this much like Illinois and gallon is the best option since he ran this offence at apopka as a QB.
he seems a bit short to be effective there even in practice... People were complaining about Denard and Forcier being too short for QB and they're both 6'... but isn't Gallon like 5'7'/5'8''' or something?
Seriously though, from BlueSeoul's game notes, Miss.St. doesn't throw from the pocket very much at all so height is much less of an issue. Having someone the same size is probably well down the list of priorities for scouting this offense. You need someone who can execute all of the options and make plays with his feet. Gallon ran this O effectively in HS. If you can get guys to Gallon, then you can get guys to Relf.
That video is from his Junior season, but it gives you an idea of how effective he was running that offense.
Thanks for this, I have never seen his HS tape. Cant wait for him to get involved in our offense!
Apparently you guys have no idea how practice works. The reason Denard is not simulating Relf is bacause he is busy working on our offense not because he can't pitch the ball well..
The scout team simulates MSU's plays against the 1st and 2nd team defense. The scout team is usually made up of walk ons and redshirt players or players that won't likely play. Gallon will be playing but because of the unique skill set they thought it valuable enough to move him to the scout team for part of practice.
I think most of us were wondering why not Devin Gardner, or someone closer to Relf's size... I think everbody knows it wasn't going to be Denard
Hello Kris Frost, Anthony Zettel (and distant hope) Tim Jernigan.
Didn't he drop Michigan a few days ago?
Guess I need to get out there shopping.
Jeremy Gallon: 5-8, 180
Chris Relf: 6-4, 240
Something's not adding up.... we just must not have anybody bigger who can run an offense like MSU's.
The tweet obviously excluded the part about Gallon wearing lifts and a sumo suit.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the reason why they're using Gallon is because I heard that he is actually adept at running the option. DG would be the better choice but can't for obvious reasons. On another note, 6'4 240?! Yikes. Does he have a stiff arm a la TP? God I hope not.
Can he dominate that offense like Pryor?
If we get used to chasing Gallon, Relf will seem slow...
Don, can I have 10,000 points?
I was mystified by that as well. Maybe he has Vinny Smith on his shoulders. Too bad DG is "injured" he would be a good Relf imitator.
Just a few highlights.
OMG DO THEY ALL HAVE THEIR WINGS?!
How do they know Gardner is a good dancer if his back is mangled? Hm? HMMMMM?
the regular season ended. Glad it is better now due to Barwis Dance therapy.
Do the worm. On Barwis Beach.
Nothing to see here Big Ten officials. Surely the tweet forgot to include the part about Devin dancing in his wheelchair.
Thanks for gathering up the tweets. It'd be nice to make an app that would gather only useful tweets. I guess that would be what.... about 2% of them? =]
You mean people do not want to know when I'm eating a sandwich or taking a dump?
Is that BWC in the photo? That guy looks to have a nice big salad of hair and looks to weight about 380....it doesn't look like Will but it appears to be 73 on the jersey
Any idea why he is not a monster run stopper in the middle like we all expected coming into this year?
I thought we would have him and Martin in the middle... oh, wait, only room for one in a 3-3-5...
We could have had a pretty nice 4-3 defense this year IMO
If this is serious than you have got to do some catch up on your football news. Campbell was moved to offense, because he wasn't getting it done on defense. If he was good he would have played. This had nothing to do with the scheme etc..
Are they wearing the Whites or the Blues?
Are they wearing white or blue for the bowl game?
I heard it will be white which is why I brought my white jersey to jacksonville (spending x-mas in georgia)?
Luckily I can have someone bring my blue if I heard wrong.
Quite a treat and what a feat, that's the word on the street, a fleet of complete sweet tweets, they had me on the edge my seat,
and the only cure to make this practice better, is more cowbell.....
are cowbells really that loud? man thats funny
That must be pretty annoying for Molk
It's nice to hear about actual news.
