You got me all excited for a practice video...but I don't think practice begins until tomorrow.  You may wish to change your title to Hoke Spring Press Conference video or something similar to avoid any confusion of a potential practice video here.


EDIT: For whatever reason the first time I clicked the link it took me to the Hoke press conference.  The second time I clicked it I got the practice video.  Ignore my previous message...apologies.

Was Darboh working with the defense?

EDIT: A bunch of players were still wearing the matte helmets. I wonder if those will become  a thing.

Gardner sure looked good in those few passes we get to see! Anybody know if Shane Morris is enrolled early, or is he still in high school. I can't remember but thought he ended up not enrolling early, but then just saw a tweet that he is at Bdubs with some of the early enrollees. Could easily just be visiting though.

I don't know why, but I really noticed Pipkins and how almost tiny he looked compared to his previous size.  And also noticed the good speed he was showing on the pursuit drill.  Also, Clark carries that 270+ well especially considering his height.

a mirage.  September is still 5+ months away.  Still great to see this.  Thanks for the feed.

Are the recruits that are in town able to watch this?  Not sure if there are rules about it.

Yeah, I noticed that's well. Pretty damn excited that our offense is going to be pretty wide open with formations and personnel groups. Matchup nightmare for everyone. Chesson looks much taller than expected (didn't really see him on the sidelines or in pre-game last year) and he has some speed and AD looks like a 2013 version of Jason Avant; ohh my, and Funchess is a monster!

Just gotta get quality play from OF interior line and a solid pass rush on D, we could finally be talking about being a legitimate top 15 team this year. Way too early for that kind of talk, but a lot of positives happening with us.

We have the perfect personell, we want to be a downhill running team, and Borges is a "West Coast" guy and the Pistol came from Nevada and obviously the 9ers and Seahawks run it. As for the actual "West Coast Offense" it has a ton of principle's from Walsh's West Coast Offense.

We could be VERY dangerous next year running the Pistol with our base defense.

I like the Pistol MUCH better than the spread because it still includes a power game. Guys like Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch are no Kenyon Barner or LaMichael James in terms of size and they excel in those offenses. Fitz, Smith, Green and even Rawls should be able to get downhill and find some big holes. Then Garnder plays very similar to Kapernick....a long stridder who isn't going to kill you with his legs unless he's got you off balance with the pass and/or RB run game.

Seriously, the size of the team has morphed in 2 years. Guys like Kalis and Lewan don't tower over others. Q and PeeWee look ordinary and 6'3" WRs just blend in. Mario looks lean at 245 and Frank carries 277 easily.

Ready to see if the strength and speed match the size!
