I'm no expert, but for a rising Junior, technique looks pretty good [insert pad level comment]. Someone get him a Cheesesteak. Hopefully, he still has a growth spurt in him.

You will also notice an increase in children named "Handsome Stranger," named after me.

Furbush is a bit underweight, but Hand needs to maintain weight while building strength. If they both go to KFC, Hand should order one whole chicken and Furbush two, but Hand eats first, because better to have a bird in Hand than two in Furbush.

"The Clickwhores(TM)" is the name of my new band. Please cease and desist use of the name.

I get the concerns about size. With that said, I think that a lot of the "meh" in this update is because we've gotten a bit spoiled. With Pipkins et al having come in with mad hype, and our general solidification of the line, what it takes to move the meter has risen significantly.
When a guy like Poggi potentially is our "depth," I'm okay with that. This does not mean, however, that I'm not hopeful that he becomes an OL nightmare at 3-Tech or is able to put on the lbs to become an amazing NT.

I believe a "flow" chart would require a third hand.

|1 week 6 days ago||Query||
There were a couple plays where he seemed to dive at the ball-carrier's legs rather than driving through the tackle. Did that not cause you concern, or am I mis-reading what was happening?
|1 week 6 days ago||Semper Fi highlights||
I'm no expert, but looking at the Semper Fi highlights, and taking into account that he was not feeling well, it looks like he needs a bit of work on finishing tackles. He occasionally got buried by linemen as well, but that may be more a matter of his being sick. With that said, I'm very excited about him. Given the Heineger Certainty Principal, and a redshirt to add some bulk and work on technique, I think he's going to be uncontrollable for any mortal OL in a few years.

Put two of the chrome helmets next to each other, you can see "infinity" from the mutual reflection. Look hard enough, you can see two parallel lines meet, and you can even see the last time Indiana won a significant football game.

People on here seem to be either: (i) humor-impaired; or (b) unable to distinguish trolling from rye humor.
C'mon people, lighten up.

I believe that "Green" is his name, not his color. I could be wrong.

Not sure how that's a relevant question, however.

My tendency is to want athletes (and everyone else) to be reverential and humble. My model as a child was Bjorn Borg (yeah, I'm old), and I didn't like Jimmy Connors. But how much of this is really about our fear of standing out? Maybe we're all too cowed (myself included).
Here's my thought: It's okay to celebrate success. It's okay to say, "Hey, I'm pretty good at this," assuming that's accurate. In this case, he IS good, and it's okay that he knows it. As long as the kid is resilient and has the short memory required of a corner, I say, "Good on him. Talk as much as you want, but just make sure you bring the goods."

Have you ever woken up the next morning to find your amore dujour wearing your...socks? "I just banged this guy and woke up naked and hung over. Think I'll put on his socks." That only makes sense if you are a REALLY bad housekeeper and tend to spill things.

My daughter is due, as of yesterday, to provide me with my first grandchild (will be a girl). I will gladly provide numerous photos. In the interim, here's one of my three daughters with some strange guy.
P.S. My son-in-law is also a UM grad, so this child will be all maize and blue.

I believe It's Indigo. He pronounces it like Inuugo, but it's clearly Indigo, per the boy's pronunciation of it and the original novel.

So, do we have to stone to death those who collect signatures? What if I collect signatures only from handwriting champions, because they have the best signatures?

He could sign a Boeing 787 made out of gold. That would be valuable.
If he signs my chest, how much do you think I could get for it?
