That post was a much needed "football" update.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Green Expectations||
I know Green is rated pretty high and rightfully so....but, he's never strapped on a helmet and played let alone practiced against college football players. We have a known quantitiy in Fitz. Yeah, he had a down year, but the year before he was pretty good and we ALL thought this past year was going to be a break out year for him. I'm saying don't be so quick to right off the RB's we already have on the roster before a new comer even steps on the field.
What are we all going to say IF Fitz holds Green and say Drake Johnson, Rawls or Hayes is the 2nd back in? Green is a Bust?

With a Nickel able to play every down you're not relegated to playing the best four/five DB's. You will also be able to move a LB or DL out. The best 11 may be 3 DL, 3 LB's and 5 DB's or 4 DL, 2LB's and 5 DB's.

I like Gelen too, but I like him more as a SAM rather than a WDE.

Judging by your website you are a hard man to please!! LOL.
BTW, do you have a write up telling us why you like him? Never mind. Should have read on.

After watching the video, would you want your son to play for him?

Falcon is a northern suburb of Coloraso Springs. They play in 4A, the 2nd highest classification in Colorado. It's a relatively new community and school. I've been in Colorado for 21 years and lived in Colorado Springs for a couple years when Falcon was still a praire.

SDE has to be a stud against the run as he may deal with more double teams at the point of attack. WDE, not so much.
Here is decent article that explains it...kinda of:

He looks to have gained a little weight over the course of the last six months. He looked really skinny during the summer's 7 on 7 tourneys.

If my son or daughter is blessed to be recruited at this level as a father I would welcome Hoke's policy.
Did yall read/hear about the kid from Texas that was commited to Oklahoma? The kid can't play football anymore.....OU decides to pull his scholly offer. Now before yall flame me about not being able to fulfill his end of the bargain answer this question, if the kid was commited to UM do you think Hoke pulls the offer given the same set of circumstances?

Looks like Ross is taking the correct the steps based off of the Guard in front of him and RB action his way. When the game "slows" down for him i.e. more experience, he won't flow so hard with the action he is seeing causing him to be out of position.
Bolden makes the correct read as well. Ideally he needs to meet the pulling TACKLE before he has a chance to square his shoulders to the line of scrimmage. When he can't meet the lineman before he squares up Bolden should have taken on the block on the outside shoulder forcing the RB inside to where the help (Ross) should be.
The good behind this is: the LB's are reading and reacting to their reads and the mistakes that are made on this play are easily corrected.

i tweeted something very similar to this earlier- #Brockmealer= BOSS
Would love to see his name trending.

Don't forget about one Mr. Smith. He was some great tools to work with and if five of the nine O-Linemen over the last to cycles work out you or I (well maybe you) might be able to gain 1,000 yards.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Inspired Play||
One thing Rabbit didn't mention and that is how incredibly inspired the Cadets play. It doesn't matter if they are down by 30 or up by 30, they play hard every play. What they give up in size and athletic ability they make up in playing their "roles" and knowing their responsibilities.
Having played them I can tell you I feel safe knowing our country is in good hands.
Thanks for servings guys.

More good news may be coming...per Twitter. Oh my!!
Edit: I type slooooow.
|4 years 2 weeks ago||TCU||
The way things are looking for the Big East right now, i would not be surprised if TCU becomes available.
They would bring a huge TV market with a lot of UM fans in the area. Don't know how they stack up AAU-CIC wise, though. Plus the Big Ten gets a good Texas school with out the Texas politics.
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Hash-Zone Drops||
Looks like Herron may have been anticipating a different route by the reciever or he may have been going to a different (incorrect) zone and realized during the play his angle was wrong.
It is encouraging to see "in" game improvements.
One other point, this particular play looks like UM is playing man coverage with inside help from Herron to the wide side and RVB on the short side. Carder makes the only right choice. From the start he reads where the pressure is coming from and gets it to the only open receiver.
I do think Herron is at fault...some, but most of the credit should go to a good QB making a good read and throw.
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Pass Coverage||
Erik, on the plays where UM blitzed, did you notice if the DB's were pressing or playing "off" their guys in coverage?
Also, on the plays we did not blitz were our guys (DB's) playing closer to the line of scrimmage? Sorry for the mundane questions. I didn't see the game.

I've been laughing so hard the last couple of weeks with the MGo Community my Boss just asked to see what I was looking at on the net!
Sorry, carry on.

Staggering and he didn't even play the whole game in the Holiday Bowl!! I think he was pulled after the 3rd quarter.

Yeah Guys just made my evening!! In Phoenix on business and my hotel doesn't have the Big Ten Network. Upperdeck...here I come. Thanks a bunch.
|4 years 48 weeks ago||Couple questions for those||
Couple questions for those that want RR and GERG out:
1. If RR was hired for the University of Minnesota job after he was fired from U of M would you be worried?
2. After hearing all the rumors of RR's "medling" with the defensive schemes, not letting his DC's run the defense they are comfortable with and having a clear lack of talent how can we possibly blame the defensive fiasco on Greg Robinson?
My answer to #1- I would be extremely anxious if RR went to any school in the Big Ten.
Answer to #2- I don't think Greg Robinson is THE reason the Defense is bad; however, i'm not sold he is the answer either. He has way too much to overcome, lack of talent/depth and inability to run HIS defensive scheme to be judged fairly.....in my opinion.
Call me an apologist, but I really think RR needs another year to truly see if the program is moving in the right direction.
|4 years 49 weeks ago||QB/LB isn't your typical HS||
QB/LB isn't your typical HS postion combination. The fact that he plays both means to me at least that he has a higher than average football IQ.
After watching the video (I watched the one posted by Bossman on Youtube), I am convinced of three things:
1. he does have a good football IQ
2. he has the instincts needed to play LB in college (He plays down hill and he attacks the would be block and he stays behind the ball carrier as he is flowing)
3. the guy has decent footwork for a HS linebacker.
I like the offer.
