The spring game is in two days. It think somebody posted the scrimmage highlights already, but I wouldn't blame anyone for missing it amidst the Final Four hoopla.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
I like football
Do you really love the lamp or are you just saying that because you saw it?
I love desk
I like turtles.
Is this ashtray !!
I really am impressed with all of our players who always seem intelligent and great kids, however, based on this interview I was extremely impressed at how well spoken Jack is. Sounds like he understands exactly what needs to happen for the OL to succeed and speaking from experience, it's damn near impossible to not sound like an idiot with the camera in your face.
Agreed. He seemed very down to Earth. Offensive linemen generally seem like they would be fun guys to hang out with OR they seem like quality human beings.
The videos never have sound on my iPhone, can you post them on your site so I can watch?
The interviews are scheduled to post at noon.
Thank you sir.
They work, I can watch them but there's no sound. I have the volume up so I'm not sure of the problem.
Try listening harder.
Turn your iPhone off vibrate. That happens on mine too for some reason but i get sound if I turn the ringer on.
Mattison is going to have fun with the Clark interview . . .
Why do I have a feeling that our two leading receivers may very well end up being Chesson and Funchess? And if that's the case can we call them the Chess Club?
Also, that is one tenacious defense.
Um...no Gallon? Gardner's favorite receiver last year?
Yeah I know. That's why I called it a feeling and not a prediction. Also, I am really hoping for the Chess Club thing.
Glass half full - we've got an extrodinary run defense.
Glass half empty - we still have no running game.
Derrick Green fills glass - I really hope he can fill that glass...
Towards the end of that Miller interview there were some highlights where there appeared to be some nice running lanes.
Well crap. I'm hoping the DL steps up soon.
That's the first time I've heard Frank Clark speak. Is it just me or does he not look or sound like a guy who would steal a laptop? I'd be interested to hear exactly what happened there. Also goes to show you can't really know these kids from the snippets we get to see.
Oh yeah, I think we're going to be really good this year.
What do people sound like who would steal a laptop?
More like Terelle Pryor. I knew I would get dinged for that but come on. The kid sounds very intelligent. Smart people generally don't steal laptops.
Does this guy sound like he would steal a laptop?
Rich Eisen? Absolutely.
Did he steal a laptop?
Is that a rhetorical question? I thought you could tell by the sound of his voice...
Strong finish sir. You played me like a fiddle on that one. I concede that I have been proven a racist.
Hmm... And that's a problem for you. I'm black.
Well, it's probably more of a problem for you, as that's unfortunately how racism works. That said, he didn't specify he was racist against black people, that was just implied.
Intelligent thieves work for banks and steal people's money.... is that what you are saying? That Frank Clark sounds like a higher class of crook?
Who downvoted this, Linda Green? Frank "I stole a laptop" Clark had to appear in a court of law. John "I vaporized $1.6 billion of my client's money" Corzine remains not only a free man but an active bundler of campaign contributions.
What do people who steal laptops look like?
Not sure how I feel about all the stuffs at the line of scrimmage in the practice video.
Based on scant evidence, but fwiw...
* Clark destroys Schofield in the first play for the safety. I'm gonna take this as another hopeful sign that Clark is ready for a breakout year where he puts it all together.
* Good to see Chris Bryant back out there at OG. Looks like Kalis and Braden are your starting guards for now.
* Jake Butt's gonna be an early contributor this year, I think. Chesson and Darboh are showing some real nice flashes at WR too. Fantastic grab by Chesson for the TD on the last play there.
* Nice PBU by Delonte Hollowell against the much bigger Darboh.
* Mattison's gonna have his guys ready to play, as always. The defense will miss Jake Ryan's playmaking skills, no doubt, but boy, do they still look tough and physical and they fly to the ball. Beyer's looking good at the SAM in these clips, too (though some of that's partly b/c it seems our TEs still need a LOT of work on their blocking).
that the video quality is only 360 p? Does anyone else think this is odd?
On that last Justice Hayes run (about 5:30 into the Miller interview), Schofield was running about 15-20 yards downfield - ahead of Hayes - and picking up DBs. And he looked pretty damn smooth doing it. Taylor might be the best offensive lineman in the country, but I'd say we've got an All-B1G guy at the other end, too. Hell of an athlete, that guy
Hypnotized by Frank Clark's shirt.
went cross-eyed, and suddenly I could make out the figure of a sailboat.
Every DG pass was to the right, small subset but just interesting to not really see him check left at all.
Anyway, love the videos, thanks for posting.
He hit Dileo to the left against Minny, hit Gallon to the left against SC in the bowl game, and had plenty of successes on the left side last year...I'm not even a little concerned. It is natural for a righty to look right more, but DG has a gun that can point both ways.
I have a good feeling about this year.
I'm sure Devin would like that pass back at the 1:40 mark.
It's nice to watch football highlights. It's nicer knowing we don't play Alabama to start the season.
in a game he probably wouldnt have had a chance to make that throw, you can see the defense stop in his face.
in a game He could scramble or get sacked we will never know, but i dont think the pass would have gotten off in time
thats just what i see
