Gus Malzhan and Bill Snyder
Gus was one the guys I wanted for the job in 2011. I like the way he adapts his offense to his personnel, and how his offense can be up-tempo but still be downhill and physical.
Snyder has always seemed to genuinely care a lot about his players, and I’m always amazed at the fact that despite a significant part of his team being made up of JUCO’s KSU always seems to play smart and mistake free.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||No Mizzou would be listed as||
No Mizzou would be listed as his college. Josh Gordon's college is listed as Baylor although Utah was the last school he attended.
If he dosent get his trasfer waiver I doubt that he will voluntailry leave school and declare for the 15 draft. I don't remember anyone who transferred to a school to practice for a season and then voluntarily left for the draft before playing a down.

For those of you that dont know. Its a tradition at the Shrine Bowl for players to wear decals from their teamates schools.

People are hyping this doc based on the trailer but are they going to talk about or expose anything that we don’t already know?

He can play in the minor’s, and still play FB at ND right? Like Shaq Thompson and Russell Wilson. Going pro in one sport doesn't affect your amateur status in the other's IIRC.

It’s kind of weird but it’s the truth. You hear it a lot in O and D Lineman evaluations.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I could be wrong, but even if||
I could be wrong, but even if he gets released from his LOI he’s still going to have to sit out this fall.
FSU should just give him a free release. The negative publicity is not worth it IMO.

Maybe for a minute, but as soon as Texas believes that staying in the Big XII is no longer in their best interests. They’re gone.
IMO the B1G end’s up with KU and another team from the Big XII, during the next realignment cycle.

Mornhinweg run’s a ZBS. Sparano, who ran a MBS is gone. A 311 pound BWC this time around should be a much better fit for that scheme.

Cuse is no longer part of the AAU, and Nebraska was when they were offered an invitation to join the conference IIRC.

I want Ansah at 5. Has the highest upside of any player in this Draft, and is not as raw as everyone thinks. He’s just inexperienced (there’s a difference). I’d be ok with Fisher but he didn’t dominate the MAC like you would expect a top 5 pick to, and Milliner would be a reach at 5 (most overrated player in this draft IMO).
This would be my ideal mock for the Lion’s right now

I’m kind of hoping the B1G goes to 18 or 20 now. At first I was against going beyond 16 team’s (just felt like anything more than 16 was too much, and I wanted a 4 division pod system) but now I’m hoping they can just add 4 or 6 more ACC team’s and move UM,MSU and OSU, to the West. At 16 with UM and OSU in the East it’s going to be very unbalanced.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Obviously he’s not going to||
Obviously he’s not going to play RB at the next level, but his athleticism and nimble feet are very impressive. Guys who are his size and move like that don’t grow on trees. It’s the main reason Dontari Poe went to the Chief’s at 11 despite not doing much at Memphis.
He’s probably going to be a NT/ short yardage FB like Jesse Williams from Bama.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Stanford also got beat by 7-6||
Stanford also got beat by 7-6 Washington, and had a hard time beating WSU, Arizona, and SJSU. Oregon lost by 3 to Stanford and destroyed everyone else they played. It’s not the same as 2011.
Stanford IMO was the better team by the end of the season after switching to Hogan (who’s going to be very good btw), but an argument could be made that Oregon had a better resume than Stanford did although Stanford won the PAC 12.

It’s nice but for 9 mill, I was expecting to be blow away by it.

I thought this kid was going to play OT at UT? Are we sure he’s going to play DE at Bama?
Also I thought Bama was recruiting Poggi to play H Back/ TE? Saban’s two gap 3-4 would be a horrible fit for him. He’s a one gap player.

Does OU have any interest in Cornwell?

They’re not getting away with anything because deer antler velvet doesn’t do anything. IGF-1 cannot be taken orally, and even it could be taken orally there’s not enough of it in deer antler velvet to do anything. I’m surprised no one remembers this from the last time the media made this a big story, because the NFL and MLB banned it even though there was really no reason to.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||1. Yes, because it would be||
1. Yes, because it would be his choice, and I don’t think the risk of acquiring significant brain damage at the HS level is as much of risk as it is on the collegiate and pro levels. I wouldn’t encourage or necessarily discourage him, but I would let him know of the potential dangers and risks of playing the sport and let him make his choice about it just like my mother did with me, but I wouldn’t allow him to play until HS though. But to be honest if I didn’t play at the HS school level, I probably would feel like a lot of you feel about not letting your son play at all.
2. I’m not sure. There are times where I feel like this sport is on its death bed, and other time’s when I don’t and just think it’s at a cross road’s like it was in 1905, and that unless they do finally invent the magical helmet that everyone is either praying or hoping for that this game once again is going to have to evolve into something else. That although is safer for its participants, is also dangerous and violent enough to keep the American public entertained.
3. With the way the game is played today I’m not sure you can make it any safer than they have already made it with the new rules (which I don’t mind btw). Making player’s wrap up when tackling like in Rugby (someone can correct me if I’m wrong here), is an interesting proposal but it still won’t get rid of many of the games big collision’s (LB’s taking on block’s, blocks on ST’s, OL/DL play etc.) that result in sub concussive blow’s which we know contribute to brain disease just as much as suffering concussion’s do.
This OT but TBH I feel guiltier about watching CFB then I do of the NFL. At least current NFL players are getting well compensated for the damage they do their bodies, and they now know the risks of playing the sport at that level. While many of the participant’s in CFB now know of the game’s risk to their long term health, you have to wonder if the “education” that they receive is worth the damage they do upon their bodies. I love CFB but there are times when I wonder, if the game would be better off if the NFL just established a minor league/D league, and 99% of HS player’s would be done playing the sport at the age of 18.
