|2 weeks 3 days ago||let's fix that||
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||it was||
The boy suffered a scrotal torsion this past spring. That made a football ban easier to sell.
Realisitically the kid could not ever be a D1 prospect anyway. He inherited his dad's lack of upper body strength. He squatted 255 this morning but missed reps in his 110 lb dumbbell bench. And he has major flexibility issues in his hips. Pad. Level.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||i love the game but.....||
.... my 14-yo freshman is 6' 2", 245 lbs and we are not letting him play HS football. He played 8th grade ball and loved it. That's it.
Problem is damn near everyone in town thinks he should be playing. The cajoling doesn't stop.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||it would be fun||
I think Jasper can hold his own.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||not as easy as it looks||
That would be the assumption. Though there is a transition cost; not all slot ninjas can master the blocking skills necessary from an A-back. Its a tough position to play. The blocks themselves are not the only responsibility. Knowing who to block and how that changes based on how the OC sees the D divvying up the dive/QB/pitch responsibilities is just as important. Navy has had to throttle good running A-backs in the past who just weren't reliable enough in their blocking assignments.
Prime example would be Shun White, who thru one 14-game span over 2 seasons once had a > 10 y.p.c. But he couldn't stay on the field 100% because he kept blowing assignments.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||but who is OC?||
If Kenny leaves Navy then current OC Ivin Jasper almost certainly gets his old job. Big question is then who does Ken get to run the flexbone? Because he's a defensive guy, not a flexbone O guy. Though he does know it far better than non-flex OC's.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||well.....||
True, but PJ walked into a ridiculous amount of defensive talent at GT. Also Demaryius Thomas.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||no||
Please don't call it a wishbone. The Flexbone is not the Wishbone. The flexbone is essentially a marriage of the Run & Shoot and Wishbone. Flexing the A-backs out means the Flex has somewhat different requirements of the A & B-backs.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||Eventually the R&S fell out||
Eventually the R&S fell out of favor, for numerous reasons. The pass pro schemes were too simple; quarter rolls with the RB protecting the backside will not work against every blitz. Also had major issues with the new zone blitz schemes.
Did and still do love the way a "pure" Shoot puts RB close behind the QB.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||We were the 2nd best team in||
We were the 2nd best team in the league that season. Skins beat Atlanta, us and Buffalo to win it all. The Falcons were toast by end of 1st Q. Bills were put away by mid 2nd. The Lions lasted until mid-late 3rd.
During the offseason G Eric Andolsek was run over by an 18-wheeler while mowing his front lawn. And the moment was over.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yes.||
I approve of this comment.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Morningwheg sez||
The bar is low. Really, really low.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||but before that||
We're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||We're gonna let it all hang||
We're gonna let it all hang down.
|9 weeks 7 hours ago||could this play a role?||
Seemed like attendance was a bit thin for some of the home games.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Creighton deserves to be a||
Creighton deserves to be a COY candidate just as much as Fleck. And the Hurons are watchable too.
|12 weeks 18 hours ago||and Erich Honecker could par-TAY!||
Moral equivalence much?
|12 weeks 18 hours ago||sure||
I hear Stalin was interesting too. Pol Pot was a barrel of laughs.
|12 weeks 19 hours ago||yes but......||
.... just for the record Fidel was a lefty.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||or blame Jurgen||
I fully expect John Brooks to announce tomorrow on his Twitter that he has ass cancer. About the only explanation for his play tonight.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||but if we find replacements for Jones & Bradley.....||
Yes. ESPN's FPI estimates we have a 41% chance of not making it to Russia with a loss tonight.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||but I was mistaken||
I was under the impression Omar Gonzalez plays soccer for a living.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||sure, if fracking is bad don't do it||
But fracking is good. Real good. Its environmentally sound and really cheap. Your objections don't have a leg to stand on and are increasingly limited to fringe fruitcakes like Bill McKibben & the 350 crowd.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||point to it||
In the post of mine you responded to, what was hyperbole?
|18 weeks 3 days ago||frack baby frack||
Which is why if you don't support energy development you're in favor of SA *and* Teheran.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||unless of course you think Juan Cole is a sober, reasoned voice||
The word "hyperbole" doesn't mean what you think it means.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||and Iran is just as radical as SA||
SA doesn't have hegemonic aims. Iran does. Best to have them struggle against each other than one of them become a regional hegemon.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||there's a vacuum alright||
And its in your post. The Iranians are behind much of the Yemeni problems, especially the Houthis. If Tehran had its druthers the entire peninsula would be paying tribute and the Saudis begging on bended knee.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||slight correction||
"They were fired by Houthi rebels from a land-based site in Yemen."
That sentence is missing something.
"They were fired by Iranian-backed Houthi rebels from a land-based site in Yemen."
There, that's better.
