Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Video: More Scrimmage Highlights
I love seeing solid plays, like good passes by Denard, and good runs. But I'd also like to see the mistakes. The bad reads, bad throws, fumbles, missed assignments. Just to see where we are. But that's just me.
Did you not see the Denard fumble and run?
That was not an error, it was the ol' fumbleruski play. It is the latest wrinkle in gorgeous Al's unstoppable offense.
Pardon my ignorance.
Right. How do you think we were able to run it to perfection during the UTL game? And are you forgetting Denard's first colleigate snap? lol
Yes I did, but the reason they showed that is because of the run he had after. I would just like to see some mistakes that we make, that is all.
You're missing the idea of "highlights"
Bout time that play was brought back. Aside from that, how sweet did that look?
I knew my spelling of "fumbleruski" looked funny. Thank you for the correction: I was apparently referring to the less popular Russian variant of the play, rather than the more widely accepted American version and spelling.
Broken plays are very dangerous with a kid like this...
Look at the speed!
I... I was there. Row 41 pretty much right above where he ran into the endzone. So beautiful.
But he seems substantially more agile in that video compared to last year. Then again, it was his first play in the big house so I'm sure he was beyond amp'd up, but his cuts were incredible in that run.
Looks to me like that video is sped up just a tad. Could be what you're seeing.
Behind you... :(
If Denard ever got a bounce that lucky in a game, holy crap he's gone.
EDIT: I guess I'm late, but hell... watch it again!!
...and if someone else posts the video again, I'll watch it some more!
I really think Jerald Robinson is gonna have a good year, Roundtree looked pretty fast in that video too.
He just scooped that ball up with no effort whatsoever... and he looks noticeably faster this year than he was last year. I would definitely like to see more defensive highlights, though. At least we got to see Roundtree making some impact finally.
Denard's really throwing a nice looking ball. Good mechanics, and he's stepping into the throws. Also, he looks to be seeing the field better, going through his read progressions, etc.
Also, love the intensity of Coach Hoke.
Bolden looks like Jake Ryan 2.0 with that extension.
That must be new because I don't think he had those in the earlier videos.
These videos are better than sex. Okay maybe not but they are pretty damn sweet for football addicts like myself.
These videos tend to be 1.5 to 4 minutes long, which sounds about right...
Jeez look at the marathon man over here.
Is it safe? Is i... what? Oh... the OTHER kind of Marathon Man. Got it.
I can't even be the minute man.
It's funny you say that, because since this video was so short, I was expecting it to end with "watch the full video and more for only $3.99 per month."
The camera man sure bailed quickly on the plays coming towards him.
Whoever ths QB14 is, he looked great on that one pass he threw. I'd take him over that Denrad character anyday.
The real question is, how did he look at WR?
Jack Kennedy has the #14 jersey last I looked.
I may be late to the party...but anyone notice the gold (maize) shoelaces?
Hadn't noticed, but they are a nice touch. Hope they carry over to the game uniforms as well.
They're fun for practice, but let's keep them there...
The cleats look like they belong to Iowa. They're black and gold. I'd rather see blue cleats/laces before I see black cleats and maize laces.
Countess made a nice open-field play on Denard after that fumble and run.
