|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think the biggest thing is||
I think the biggest thing is the QB. Denard and Devon were not capable of what you saw Jake do last year and Wilton do yesterday. Cool under pressure and accurate with the ball. We had decent receivers, just not a QB to get them the ball, throw them open, hit them in stride to extend plays, etc. It didn't help that our OL was horrendous those years because KDefenses were able to get pressure without selling out, but could sell out because our QBs couldn't make them pay when they did.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||When the defense sends more||
When the defense sends more guys than you can block, it is not the fault automatically of the OL. WIthout knowing their rules on a particular scheme, we cannot assertain where the fault lies. Sometimes the back goes to the wrong side, and sometimes the QB just doesn't read the pressure to get the ball out. When there are 5 OL blocking 7-8 rushers, its not their fault. Even if the back does his job, there are still 1-2 guys unaccounted for. UCF rolled that dice and left 3-4 guys in coverage to cover 5-6 eligible receivers, sometimes the blitz got home, but 312 yards for 4 td's and hitting guys wide open deep down the field was the answer. The OLine did its job, it may not have looked good because the pressure, but they gave Wilton enough time to hit on several long balls.

I am not a big fan of the targeting call at all, but he hit a player who was turning in the open field blindly by launching himself at him high to the head and chest. McDoom's facemask was forced down into his chest. If the defender makes any attempt to wrap and shoots his arms through and gets his face to the ball, this is a non-factor. Instead, he tried to knock the daylights out of a defenseless player. When I played I would have done the same thing, but we didn't know about issues related to concussions then. He knows the rule, he broke every part of the rule except, maybe contact to the head, byut when McDooms head came forward, the contact was made. I do not believe it was a horrible call.

That is what I thought as well, I guess his S&C Lens is framing his perspective.

Smith has done the same thus far this year....no burst to and through a gap. Once he breaks through the line he runs hard.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I agree...||
Smith has been unimpressive thus far this year. I see no burst, he stops his feet instead of getting his feet in the ground and running with power. Isaac hasn't looked any better the past 2 weeks, really. Could we see Evans starting by B10 play?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Brady?||
I really think you should be worried about the Virginia Cavaliers right now!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||These guys are D! football||
These guys are D! football players who have been under a Harbaugh staff for 2 springs, 2 preseason camps an entire season a bowl season and now into week two of year two. Can we please stop blaming the former staff, apparently it was not all on their ability to develop these guys, perhaps their ability to identify OLine talent.

He is the only back willing to pound through the line right now, so let him keep toting the rock.

There wasn't JET motion there, was the HB out of Gun on a sweep.

I believe Brian Griese mentioned that during the 1st half (wasn't lisening to the half-time show, so it may have restated.)
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I don't think Harbaugh will||
I don't think Harbaugh will ever care about redshirting. He said so last year. OLine and perhaps QB are the only position groups he looks at redshirting, he stated someting along the lines of all the others should be ready to participate by the end of their first year and a fifth year is not really a benefit, because they aren't going to get much better. By not redshirting, you essentially get an extra recruiting class every fifth year. Your hit rate doesn't have to be as high when you have an extra 5 kids or so every year because you aren't redshirting. This is part of the meritocrasy.

You opened an account today just to say this? Very Profound indeed.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Honestly, if Wilton Speight||
Honestly, if Wilton Speight does not have greater command of the offense than Jake did "last year at this time" then there should be a huge problem. that is 2 weeks vs. 2 springs, 1 season as the primary back-up, and 2 weeks of camp. I would venture a guess that Shane Morris has more command than Rudock at this point last year as well.
I am willing to bet that Sam works hard to develop the relationships and trust with people who are willing to trust him with inside information. There are others who are willing to pay for that information because they do not have the access themselves. Why do you have such an issue with that? I would never pay for it, but I do lurk here to pick up information. To each their own.

I felt the same thing. Especially after a meniscus tear and mono.

Except he was Karan's mentor in high school...sooo.

They let the guys get whatever number they want, in the end, the guy who earns is keeps it. Pictures are taken very early in camp, so they didn't have the ooportunity to complete the competition.

It is actually less than 30 minutes, I am in south Sarasota county and am an hour.

That seems like a very short-sighted plan. Who helps care for your wife in her old age when she is no longer independent if you have already passed?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||+1||
because I thought the same thing.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Jerame Tuman?||
I think you are looking for Jay Riemersma. He was the backup QB at Michigan and converted to TE after a rotator cuff injury.
|10 weeks 5 hours ago||I am not taking a position||
I am not taking a position one side or the other, but I am not sure if the absence of a bruise could be evidence in the immediate aftermath. Bruises often take some time to develop, so if there is a red mark, that may eventually lead to bruising. Perhaps one of our MGoMedicalProfessionals can comment to that.
|10 weeks 6 hours ago||You are telling me if someone||
You are telling me if someone called your nieces retarded or retards to their face, you wouldn't be offended? And if you wouldn't accept that to be said to their face, why would you be ok with it in peoples general dialogue? I have rarely heard the word retarded used in a positive way in my life, and I am a special education teacher (mental retardation has only recently given way to intellectual disability). The word retarded per se does not bother me, what bothers me is the use of that word to describe someone who acts like a complete idiot. I am by no means politically correct, but I do believe comparing someone who does idiotic things and ought to know better to people with intellectual disabilities is marginalizing them as human beings. I have a daughter with Down syndrome, and I have had individuals refer to her as a Mongoloid in my presence, and while I understand that was a common term used in our recent history, I found it pretty offensive. I don't go into fits of rage because that is counterproductive, but I do try to educate people when these issues come up. Individuals with intellectual disabilities have enough of a stigma without having to be compared to idiots doing asinine things.

Findlay because I played there briefly before injuries, and USF because I have 2 degree from there and I get to take my son to an occasional game.

T & F is has a scholarship limit of 12.6 and that includes XC. It would be incredibly poor judgment to take a full scholarship from those sports to free one up for football.

Wouldn't that be as an appeal for someone who was convicted of a crime?
Edit: Nevermind....way too slow!

going to log in to say that. He used to live in Prestancia years ago...I believe he is in Lakewood Ranch now. I used to work security at Prestancia while in school and he was always very kind and respectful.
