Doesn't look like a Power5 arm. Small sample size in this particular video, as you point out. So could be wrong, but I've watched some of his other vids and I don't recall his arm jumping out at me. Like his versatility though. Will be fun to watch what position he ends up at. "A football player," as coach Harbaugh would say.

I imagine half the MAC would be jealous.
|1 week 3 days ago||We''ll look forward to your next post||
in 2024, Tom09!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Agree. I'll be surprised||
and fairly disappointed if the run D isn't anywhere from good to great, particularly if the offense protects them better this year, keeps them fresher for end of ball games.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Turn over margin, exactly.||
What were we last year -16 or something like that? Awful. There were only like 3 or 4 teams worse. Half that number would still be painful. Don't see getting near double digit wins unless they hit positive range.

Cheers for the friday chortle.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||That's one place||
where Morris has been effective (small sample size) and seems pretty dangerous. Has some pretty good wheels. When Griese made those scampers, I was always like "How in the hell did he just get away with that?" Morris, on the other hand, looks like he could run away from a few linebackers in the B10.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Essentially agree. However, I hope they show||
a little more resiliency, which could come pretty quickly. I will be dissapointed if they don't look like a tougher team this year. They may not be physically ready to do what JH's 2010 Stanford team was doing, but they could make substantial mental strides. And if they do, it should make a huge difference in the other parts of the game. Doesn't mean they'll win as many as we hope. But would likely mean there won't be dissasters like we saw last year ... MSU, ND, Rutgers ... ugh too many to list.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||So pissed ND||
is off the schedule for foreseeable future. That cheap shot on Gardner to end a blow-out game was such a D-bag move. Max Redfield doesn't have to have his head on a swivel this year. Got a freebee. Enjoy it,Max. Here's hoping someone else lights him up -- legally and cleanly of course. A little Hindu karma over Luck o' the Irish.

strudder. I think she's onto something. #StrudderIsBudder
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Agree here.||
Bryant may be good right away. Maybe not. IU doesn't have much proven behind him, so can't see how the poster above can say they're going to have a much better front court. Michigan can at least throw out some bodies.
IU had an effective offense last year with their small roster, so not sure if it really matters if Bryant makes a big difference at that end of the court. They have scorers. They just couldn't defend to save their lives. He may make the biggest contribution there if he can protect the rim and rebound.

4:00 with the original Chesson ND bowling ball block.
Edit: Crap, was meant to be in reply to Jack Hammer's comments below about huge running lanes.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Man||
went back and watched that one just now. I'd forgotten how few highlights there were on the "color" part of that vid. I have to say, despite the emo, I did enjoy watching those kids again from that 2008 team. Just an utterly forgettable year, but Brandon Minor trucking dudes. Odoms (when he was holding onto the ball). Koger. Mathews. Some fun moments. Too few of them, but fun none the less.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Well one thing||
I learned from that piece is that Chuckie Freakin' Keaton is still playing for Utah State. Holy Aggie. The Brooks Bollinger of the Moutain West.
|6 weeks 11 hours ago||Re the "thin topic" .. Even national media||
were talking about yesterday, though. Mike & Mike discussed and Greenberg basically called York out for being ridiculous with the comparison to the Kerr hire, and pointed out that the culture sucked in SF before Harbaugh who turned it into a winning culture. They didn't diss Tomsula but the tone suggested they (like the entire world save for Jed York) were skeptical the departure of JH from San Fran would bring better days to the Niners.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||The Who joke?||
That's Elton John, isn't it?
|6 weeks 1 day ago||And I don't think||
the RB corps was helping much either early on. Seemed like many times there were holes to be had (maybe not gaping but big enough) only to have a RB go somewhere else and see minimal gain. I guess my point is that YPC average may have been better with a little more help from the RBs.
Hopefully another year of development and possibly Higdon or Isaac as alternative options showing better instincts and vision makes a difference as well.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Here here! I look forward||
to Clemson's annual fall off the cliff. It's about as consistent as the tides. Usually a spectacular beatdown (as you note) is involved 8 or 9 games into the season, and of course, everyone knows it's coming. Kind of feels like tradition at this point. Thanks Clemson.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Harbaugh reference||
if I'm not mistaken. Satellite camps. State lines, etc.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||But pulling O'Korn probably wasn't that reason.||
UH started the year 2-3 with O'Korn against a less than brutal schedule. They made the change because he struggled (look at his 2nd year numbers ... ugh), and then went 5-2 with the other guy. Not a ground breaking turnaround but season was going downhill fast and they salvaged it.
My guess is Sumlin (particularly after UH won 12 games) raised expectations pretty high. Levine was an "interim" guy when Sumlin left and later they took the interim away. He took them to 2 bowls in 3 years, but that didn't cut it apparently.
Suspect they thought they could go out and get a hot name, given Briles and Sumlin's successes at UH, and turns out they were right.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||That was from a year ago, though. Borges ball.||
Is he a slot in eyes of Drevno / Fisch / Harbaugh eyes?
|8 weeks 4 hours ago||At Miller's level||
it's kind of splitting hairs, I think. Curious, who would you say specifically he's not close to currently in CFB?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||And came back||
from this painful looking hit. Seems like a tough dude.

|9 weeks 3 days ago||Sweet||
free range kaola meat is so much more tender. Yum. Also there's the whole ethics thing. Double win.
|12 weeks 7 hours ago||Seems like he's slight now, but given||
he's 6', perhaps not a burner, and given his seeming enjoyment of being physical and tackling, is he a potential candidate for safety if he could put on the 20-30 lbs he'd need there?
|12 weeks 7 hours ago||Do we really care||
about the "who" as long as someone is making said impact? Give me a pash rusher who teams constantly have to game plan for and who QBs constantly have to worry about ... I don't care what his name is, what class he's in or where he comes from.
Actually, I'll take 2 or 3 of the above, if it's not too much trouble Unknowable-All Powerful-Universal-Force that can make this happen (just in case you're reading MGOblog ... oh what am I saying? Of course you're reading MGOblog) K? Thanks
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Ha we pretty much overlapped||
in ATL though I left in 2012. Had only heard about PF around those last couple years there and only through friends who were Bama and Auburn grads or fans.
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||Does Brando use that line?||
Didn't recognize it specifically. Was thinking more of the general non-sensical horror / irony of war in Catch-22 but yeah ...
|13 weeks 7 hours ago||It's likely Doyel showed up||
at Chatard likely looking for parents to talk to support a piece he had already in mind and perhaps even mostly written save for the quotes. Love it.
