Kick off coverage is still weak, and we were caught completely off guard by the on side kick.
Punt coverage seemed better (though still using the old outdated style)

If he wanted Smith to get the TD why did he take him out when play resumed?

Brian's WTKA gig has always been mornings not afternoons. About 9:00 am.

Zak also got 11 rebounds which is about the same as his total last year...
Beilein Sophomore Bounce!

A I recall Lewan was a DT in high school before moving to the OL
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Class Size means Nothing||
I have never seen a cogent reason why class size should matter in recruiting ratings. The only rational way to compare recruiting classes is to throw out special teams recruits (for the reasons Ace mentioned), and rate all schools based solely on average stars. You might want it based on the median 15 recruits for large classes.
How can anyone think that a class of 25 3 stars is better than a class of 15 4 stars (assuming as we must that stars - for all their faults - are the measuring stick). The fact that a school has a lot of open scholarships does not mean that they recruit well...

Bunting is VERY skinny. Needs at least a year with Wellman to approach D1 TE size.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||No Offers||
Henry and Clark did not have osu offers. I don't think we have ever gotten a recruit from that school who had an offer from the bucks... maybe back in Bo's day but not since.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Many a slip twixt Shane & Alex||
I would not be so quick to annoint Speight as Shane's successor. Malzone is a Winner, and every bit as talented as the other '15 QBs that we courted. I see him as a 3 year starter leading us to 3 excellent seasons.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Ty Isaac||
With all due respect (because I agree with most of Brian's observations) the clips of Isaac from last year show vastly more potential than anything I have seen from Derrick Green. Even with offensive line variance firmly in place, he looked better than anybody currently on the roster. Not explosive? A lot to like in the short cuts, balance and power that Ty delivered in minimum PT.

As noted several times on this blog - Brunson is a point Guard, while Cleman is a SG/wing.
They are being recruited for very different roles. Getting Harris fills us up at the 2-3... but does not effect the recruitment of Brunson.

We will miss him... and likely appreciate him more in his absence.

|18 weeks 8 hours ago||Conspiracy Theory?||
What are the odds of a "random" drug test being administered to a player who was clearly only suited up for moral support? What kind of system would choose this guy from amongst all the others? Aren't there any human beings with functioning brains who review which players are "randomly" tested. I don't have the answers, but the questions boggle...

Noticed in Green's instagram that Khalid appears to have shed most of his bad weight and looks pretty strong.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Visit Date||
He is scheduled to visit us on April 18. I think it is his last visit so we have a good chance to make the final impression.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||Great Idea||
The optional extra point is a winner.
As for the 37 yarder, they will have to move the 2 point conversion back as well - maybe to the 5 yard line depending on what stats say. It should be twice as difficult = twice the failure rate. Not an easy stat to come by...
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Great Post||
What can I say... posts like this are a big part of what makes this the best blog of all.
Thank you for expressing our hopes and fears in such a clear and informed way.

Here's some info and film on Jon Dobie. Any kid with those measurables is worth a look.

That's plenty tall enough for a shutdown corner... especially one who can bring the wood like Shaun. Will be be great to see him in the winged helmet.

|29 weeks 5 days ago||Brilliant||
The best rating system I have seen by far. Normalizing to a standard 25 man class was an excellent tweak to what was already leagues ahead of the competition. Ratings that still lean on class size to the detriment of quality are ridiculous. A gold medal to the Mathlete on the eve of the Olympics. Thank you.

|29 weeks 6 days ago||Excellent Point||
Douglas had a great senior year at running back:
Also would guess he is closer to 190 lbs. by now which is plenty big enough. I really like the move as we are well stocked with young talented corners.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||The (overly?) large 2013 OL||
The (overly?) large 2013 OL class will be gone after 2017 so we need to take at least three each year to get the numbers right by then. I'd like to see 4 next year (and would have preferred 3 this year).
