|1 week 6 hours ago||I don't think it's likely, but||
I also don't think it's unimaginable. Weird offense no one is built to stop + early season kinks yet to be ironed out (esp on OL) could create problems that are sorted by midseason.
UF seems like a more likely problem for us, given when in the season it occurs.
|1 week 10 hours ago||10-3||
Early loss (either to UF or Air Force).
Long win streak, including upset of PSU.
End season with losses to Wisconsin and OSU.
Go on to win bowl game.
Sets up monster 2018 season.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||They won't be good, but...||
...we aren't going to beat them by 40 either. Lewerke will be an upgrade at QB over whatever it was they fielded last year, they have 3 competent RBs (London and Holmes as well as Scott), and the defense will be same as usual--tough up front but questionable at the back.
If Corley is one of the 3, and at this point I assume he is, their passing game will suffer. But it's highly unlikely they repeat 3-9. It's probably a 5-7 win team--not great, but just good enough to be annoying.

I mean, he's a good DL coach and all, but he's a DL coach.
|8 weeks 23 hours ago||Racist but also incredibly stupid||
Even most professional racists are smart enough to avoid that specific term. It is the one word you cannot get away with, if you are a public figure (and a football player is). This is doubly true of you aspire to work in a profession that's 70% black.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Do we know what the reason was?||
Family issues, weather issues, homesickness, etc.?
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Well, Scout's team rankings||
Well, Scout's team rankings aren't sorted by per player average.

|12 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, once you've had real Mexican food||
...the flavorless, Americanized slop just won't cut it anymore.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||The best nights at Backroom||
...were when they burned the pizzas. 4 burnt slices for $1!
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Could also be the opposite||
"I wanted to order milk because that's what Harbaugh would do."
Or it might be neither.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Nothing wrong with blocking people||
Given what a madhouse twitter can be, it's necessary sometimes.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||...and there's no reason to suspect it's about to end.||
...and there's no reason to suspect it's about to end.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, tend to agree. He was||
Yeah, tend to agree. He was committed to Alabama, flirted with the idea of decommitting, then enrolled at Alabama. Pretty common sequence of events; the drama came from the media and fans.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Wilford Brimley||
...has been 80 years old for the past 40 years.
|14 weeks 1 hour ago||Deshawn Hand is the only one||
Deshawn Hand is the only one of those that, in hindsight, I really wish we'd gotten.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Weeeeelllll...||
Maybe after Brady left SiriusXM...
|14 weeks 5 days ago||This is commitment||
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Curious if he's been hired to run his or Urban's offense||
Clearly a lot of overlap, but also some major differences, e.g. tempo.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I agree, but...||
...caveats for garbage time carries.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||It's a bad class, but...||
...they do a good job of developing anonymous 3 star recruits, especialy on the OL and DL, so expect a few guys to overperform their rankings.
Also, given how few of their players leave early for the NFL, they won't really feel the burn of it until 2019.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, he's more like Percy Harvin than Reggie Bush||
...and Harvin had 4 good NFL years before injury problems.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||It will take another 2 years||
...but then we should be fairly even with them.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Never could figure out why they didn't use him more||
I mean, his touches did go up this year, but Samuel was THE playmaker on that offense. Probably could have had 1,000 each rushing and receiving if they'd featured him like they should have (IMO).
Seems like an okay dude as well, for a Buckeye, so best of luck to him.

See? There is an OL grad transfer who will make an impact somewhere, so it does happen.

|15 weeks 4 days ago||The Alabama OL||
Can't remember his name but I do remember that he was injured ore-season and decided to quit football. OSU didn't really need him anyway, so unsure how that trajectory might have been different had he come to UM.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Also, we really need depth at OL and DL||
A couple of competent and experienced role players would actually be very helpful.
