The Gold Coast. As soon as I finished it, I went out and bought The Gate House (its sequel).
Didn't read through the whole list so SIAP.

his more natural position is safety.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||I was thinking....||
..the EXACT same thing. DR made me feel today just like TF made me feel last spring: hopeful.

...really impressed me in this video:

good interview, tom. good stuff.

I think I've seen Vlad a number of times on special teams.
|5 years 43 weeks ago||Piped In Music||
I didn't make it to the Indiana game but I was at the previous three. I noticed with each sequential game that the music was getting louder, more often and more bothersome.
I liked the music against WMU. It pumped up the crowd and people seemed to enjoy it. But I think they're starting to go overboard. Keep it simple--two or three songs throughout the game at a reasonable volume. No one wants to hear speakers cracking.
|5 years 47 weeks ago||Great Response||
|6 years 31 weeks ago||That's what I fear.||
Everything I hear about the 3-3-5 employed at WVU is that it got shredded between the 20s but held tight near the goal line.
|6 years 31 weeks ago||Who knows||
Rivals has an interview w/ Dequinta Jones' coach and he talked about how Hopson would be great b/c he always keeps the offense guessing by blitzing and heavy pressure.
And isn't that what we heard about SS? Then we saw 10 yard cushions on all receivers and 8 men dropping.
|6 years 33 weeks ago||just a hunch||
but I think he's sticking w/ FSU. Sure hope I'm wrong
|6 years 33 weeks ago||I think we||
offered another DE today (or yesterday). 3 star from...somewhere. I forget. IMO these late 'meh' offers show that the staff isn't happy w/ depth at all...
|6 years 33 weeks ago||and what about...||
|6 years 34 weeks ago||Ehh||
1) I have no idea about Robinson, but maybe he just wanted to stay in Florida and he considered that to be his best in-state offer. I don't think that's such a crazy idea. Throwing out the idea that he has a kid (true or false) is a bit much.
2) I think Stokes is no longer visiting this wknd. I don't have the source but I remember reading it - probably Scout.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||haha||
support the troops, seriously
|6 years 35 weeks ago||He's staying! - totally||
- totally uninformed on the entire situation
|6 years 35 weeks ago||So...||
What's with the RR presser notes saying McGuffie being w/ the team by Saturday and will get carries? Is he still gone? Should I just shut down the internet?
|6 years 36 weeks ago||I definitely do not think||
I definitely do not think we're losing the next great one, but I am disappointed with the news. He's a freshman and who knows where he'll be in 1 or 2 years (college weight training, maturity, better vision). My biggest disappointment comes in the hit to the depth. Sure we have Minor, Brown, Shaw and Grady (Fitz next year - possibly some of those slot guys). But, we've seen how important depth is. Like you said, McGuff was playing b/c of the lack of another option. Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple (Brown, Grady) of the RBs previously mentioned in the next transfer rumor...
I definitely think Shaw is the premier back in the class. He finishes his runs, gets yards after contact and is willing to lay a block on LBs. He'll improve on all of these also. But depth is so important as shown this year.
|6 years 36 weeks ago||Good. I'd like to see him||
Good. I'd like to see him stay...
Thanks for the info.
|6 years 36 weeks ago||Lots of sources to the||
Lots of sources to the contrary. I hope you're right.
|6 years 36 weeks ago||I don't think it's "ok."||
I don't think it's "ok." But, I'm not really worried about it. Shaw has definitely shown that he's the premier RB in the class. McGuffie did add depth and that's important - especially considering how much Brown, Minor and Shaw have been injured.
I was actually impressed how McGuffie took hits (the fact that he got up...eventually). He took some monster hits and held onto the ball, which is more than some of our other players. I hoped he'd add some mass and actually learn how to deliver hits.
All that said, it's the depth that I'm most concerned about...
|6 years 36 weeks ago||This||
...is really going to affect my exam studying
|6 years 41 weeks ago||Great.|
|6 years 41 weeks ago||Second||
Finally, let me tell Brian that I absolutely LOVE this type of post. I get more information from these Picture Pages posts than just about anything else. I'd love to see more of them - both for plays that worked, plays that didn't, offense, defense, special teams, etc. It is like a UFR on steroids for one play.
|6 years 41 weeks ago||Audible?||
Does Threet have the option to audible at the line when he sees that cushion on Savoy? I remember someone mentioning (probably in these comments) that RR did not allow Threet to call his own audibles. Any insight?
