Peppers at 10, which seems low.

How about 2011 Fitz Toussaint as a comparison? Upright runner, made solid cuts, avoided direct hits, roughly the same size now (though admittedly Walker is likely to get bigger, and hopefully his blocking is better).

Brian, "né" is correct, as "née" is the feminine form (it's a tiny nit to pick, but I don't want St. Juste to see this and decommit over it).

Once we learned Hodor's name, Bran should have asked him, "Whatchu not talkin' 'bout, Wyllis?"

Did we switch that next year to spring meeting tryouts? I remember one of Ramon Johnson's tryouts being in the spring.

That was my thought, too. I'm in Davis, about 40 miles away. Auburn is an old gold mining town in the Sierra foothills and is quite picturesque.

I don't know which is tighter- the horn section or Lenny Williams' pants.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Your broader point is still||
Your broader point is still valid. The available credits are likely to go to existing owners, who are less likely to need them. I'm deciding between a Model 3 and a Volt for my next vehicle and it's the tax credit issue (Volts with a certain low-emissions package are also eligible for the credit) that pushes me more toward the Volt. Plus, the Volt is already available.

If I may slightly correct you: a tax DEDUCTION reduces amount of one's taxable income, but a tax CREDIT reduces the amount of tax owed, so a credit is much more valuable.

He was out of the blue, but he's into the Blue now. Welcome!
|23 weeks 15 hours ago||Woodson would have been||
Woodson would have been excellent at helping the DBs recognize patterns and tendencies of receivers and of offensive systems. He didn't sustain his level of excellence through sheer natural talent alone.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Glasgow was the linchpin to||
Glasgow was the linchpin to the DL last year, was a consistently excellent run stopper and developed some pass rush from the interior before getting injured. I love Mone's potential, but it's not at all unreasonable to believe Glasgow will start over him again.

We have a sense of impending McDoom.

His letter captured how agonizing a decision like this must be on a person who is still a very young man. I could imagine him being on bended knees every night asking for clarity about such an important matter. Wishing him the best.

Seconded. Hope he does well.

It's unfortunate for him and his family, but wishing him luck on his path.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||I was thinking of Riemersma||
I was thinking of Riemersma too. Is there any aggregate evidence that position switchers do worse or better at their new positions than those who play at spots for which they were recruited?
|30 weeks 2 days ago||When I see the term||
When I see the term "micro-cuts", I think about sophomore and junior year Fitz Toussaint and his running style, which was fun to watch.

Have no fear. Spielman and McDonough are calling it.

Minor technical correction: Jeremy Clark made the interception. Otherwise, totally agree.

Definitely saw Perry and B. Cole.
|46 weeks 6 days ago||For me, the tough part about||
For me, the tough part about watching the above vine is that Perry is running the same route he was supposed to run on the first interception (on the opposite sideline). He's doing what he's supposed to and attending to a previous error. The ball is delivered to his inside and this allows the route to get easily jumped. An odd thing, but of the 3 intercepted Perry targets, throw #1 and route #3 go together, and throw #3 and route #1 go together.

Agree. Missed a few holes to his left (I counted 3) but turned -3 into 1 at least 3 times as well.

We did host ND that year, so I guess that counts for something.

I'm just as impressed with Richardson's (seemingly) proactive honesty in talking about his ACL situation to the coaches as I am with his toughness in dealing with it during camp. That quality alone might suggest a bright future for him.
|49 weeks 4 days ago||We should get a '95 Woodson||
We should get a '95 Woodson level of play from Peppers (with 2 INTs against OSU, please), and a '96 Woodson would be fantastic. It's probably going to take him a year before he can achieve '97 Woodson impact level.

Upvoted, but do you think Lewis will be tested enough for 7 INTs?
|49 weeks 4 days ago||Agree about Lewis. I'd bet||
Agree about Lewis. I'd bet that teams will stop testing him deep by mid-season, and his interceptions will come from a few panicballs. I'd also bet that Lyons (assuming he's the other corner) will be tested early and often, and thus will have higher tackle and INT numbers.

Alum96, thanks for these previews. Here's a thought: given Utah's difficulty containing spread option, do you think we could see Gentry or Morris tested out on a few spread looks early, and, if they are picking up chunks of yards, stick with them unless and until they get stopped? That would be in line with what I understand to be JH's philosophy.
