|2 years 31 weeks ago||Totally disagree. Him and||
Totally disagree. Him and Lewis have been very good in coverage. They haven't finished by batting down passes but they've been in great position. Think they'll both play a lot by the end of this season.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||He's been hesitant and danced||
He's been hesitant and danced too much. Today, combined with good blocking, he has gotten upfield and it's working much better
|2 years 33 weeks ago||This is one of the few||
This is one of the few reasonable thoughts here. This team isn't really playing that poorly. Some good to build on definitely
|2 years 36 weeks ago||This is maybe the biggest||
This is maybe the biggest overraction I've seen. Chill out, was a terrible game but we will be fine.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||The nose tackles play well||
The nose tackles play well against the run. They just haven't been in...
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Denard had 5 in basically a||
Denard had 5 in basically a half. Chill out and have some perspective
|2 years 36 weeks ago||You really think RR inherited||
You really think RR inherited a bigger mess than Hoke still? RR inherited an ok (not great) but still decent roster and left it as a crater. Are there still talented players left from that era? Sure, but as a whole he made the situation much worse.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||I agree, the running ability||
I agree, the running ability is deadly to have, but as we've seen with denard, only if you have the ability to throw accurately. People also seem to forget how rare guys like kaepernick and devin and Russell Wilson are. I'm sure if the staff can land another devin Gardner they would, but these guys just don't come around that often.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||We're extremely young on both||
We're extremely young on both sides. We're gonna be really good once both sides get some more games under their belt
|2 years 38 weeks ago||I think Gerry Dinardo (yeah I||
I think Gerry Dinardo (yeah I know lots here hate him) made a comment that we were the most improved team in the B1G. I totally agree with this. We looked much bigger, faster and more physical on both sides of the ball. We also have to be one of the youngest teams in the nation.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||I don't think they look that||
I don't think they look that good. I think the only teams in the big ten that looked good all around today were michigan and Ohio state. Northwestern seems overrated. I'm sure they will have a good season but people have been talking them up a little too mich
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Don't look at the recruiting||
Don't look at the recruiting rankings or all conference honors for a second and you'll see that meaner, Barnum and ommameh didn't fit a downhill, man blocking scheme very well at all. Neither guard could pull, and none of the three could drive anyone off the ball. We will be better this year.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Good post. Between this and||
Good post. Between this and the comments in the article about Bryant looking good in practice - I think Glasgow may just be the real deal, and miller may be pretty solid at center. If that's the case then we have the makings for a pretty good OL this year. I really hope the positive insider news about Bryant is true because then, even if miller or Glasgow doesn't work out, we have someone pretty good to come in.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Beyond that, I seriously||
Beyond that, I seriously doubt that most donors or alumni are actually pissed off with the job he's doing. In fact I bet that most are pretty happy with what he's been doing. There are obviously minor slips here and there but if you look at the big picture. Things are going pretty well
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Meant as a comment about John||
Meant as a comment about John Bacons book if not clear
|2 years 39 weeks ago||This statement doesn't make||
This statement doesn't make sense. Obviously the AD's work in similar fashion at michigan, penn state and Ohio state. It just seems like this guy writes things to stir up shit
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Yeah I don't get basis he has||
Yeah I don't get basis he has for writing this.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||I think the recruiting has||
I think the recruiting has been fairly even. The difference, and what will make them Florida to our Alabama, is all in the coaching. Hokes teams will play more fundamentally sound, intelligent and physical football than Meyers, and that will be the difference.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Also reminds me of Eddie||
Also reminds me of Eddie lacy. I know green gets compared to lacy but looking at smiths balance and ability to roll through tackles seems really similar. Overall I think it would be huge if he could be a guy to consistently pound out 4-5 yards a carry
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Yeah I think this is it. I||
Yeah I think this is it. I think people get overly concerned this time of year. Wilson is a talented kid who has been working hard by all accounts. I'm sure he'll be fine. If not, then we have depth and talent
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Have you heard anything on||
Have you heard anything on how Bryant has looked at Guard? Obviously he beat out Braden so he's probably doing at least decently well I assume.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Great point. Dont want to||
Great point. Dont want to split limited time among two totally different philosophies. This team is and will be a power running team in the future and we need to stick to that. Anything Gardner can give us on scrambles is a bonus, but he will do his damage through the air.
|3 years 3 days ago||Yeah I think this s why we've||
Yeah I think this s why we've seen less commits from Ohio this year. The difference between Hoke and RR and Carr to an extent is that Hoke has great relationships with coaches in Ohio so I don't think we will be locked out in the future any more. I think we will continue to get our fair share of top ohio players in the future.
|3 years 3 days ago||Kind of obvious but it is||
Kind of obvious but it is amazing how good Braylon was. Kind of forgot over the last few years but he was just dominant at times.
|3 years 3 days ago||Very cool story. Shows how||
Very cool story. Shows how personable the guy is
|3 years 3 days ago||Sure, Brian was and many||
Sure, Brian was and many others were excited but the point still stands that we never had the proof in both quality of play and recruiting back then in 09 that we do today.
|3 years 3 days ago||Very well said.||
Very well said.
|3 years 3 days ago||Don't think any realistic||
Don't think any realistic people ever thought the same thing in 2009. We were not recruiting any where near what we are now and that 2009 team still did not look nearly as good as any team under Hoke.
|3 years 4 days ago||Definitely agree here. We are||
Definitely agree here. We are building big, fast and physical O and D lines and will play a very similar style. I believe we will physically dominate Ohio
|3 years 2 weeks ago||I think they have proven that||
I think they have proven that they don't do that kind of thing. He probably realized that he was getting passed up by much younger players and wasn't going to get much pt this year.
