One problem: those points and yards were obtained with more downs and opportunities because the defense shut down the NU offense.  The offensive UFR will tell a more complete story.

I am worried about our defense vs. a lot of quick passes. I don't know if our pass rush will cut it against teams that can really throw... It remains an open question.

At 5:45 of this video Devin watches Demens take down NW's RB on that awesome 4th and 2.

http://youtu.be/vFRlQWhpXh8?t=5m45s

After that terrible interception in the 4th quarter he pulled himself together for that insane pass to Roundtree.  His reaction to the defensive play on the field is exactly what I want from a QB.  You can tell how much he cares about the game and team.

I expect great things this year, but I'm already loving the guy.

07/10/2013 - 8:30pm Oh man....

That one cut right to the bone.  He was the first recruit I got excited about

06/26/2013 - 3:53pm Agreed, however

The reason someone to commit murder is, without a doubt, highly contextual and multifactorial in origin.  When a tragedy like this happens it's common for witnesses to search for meaning.  Especially, in the face of a senseless crime.

To dismiss the possible effect UF's football culture had on Hernandez is, I think, to dismiss - in part - the reason why Hernandez is a suspect.

Now, to say "lulz Urbz clearly made him a murderer" is in poor taste.  But to question what makes someone a possible murderer isn't.  I object to the style of the previous quote, but not the substance.

06/26/2013 - 3:30pm Speculation

This is only speculation, but other posters have mentioned the rumor of pot dealings.  Perhaps Lloyd was boasting/dealing/arguing with the wrong people.

There are many reasons why a person murders someone else.  I'd say a couple thousand dollars or some drug jailtime is a petty reason to end someone's life.  (As if there could ever be a good reason).

Again - just speculation.  A sad story for everyone involved.

06/26/2013 - 2:54pm And probably over something

And probably over something petty.  Stupid things usually are.

06/26/2013 - 2:17pm Insane enough to murder

Insane enough to murder someone else.  Add $40 million on top of that.  Plus, public scorn and the hate of his fiancee's family.

Such a stupid and sensless act likely has the most petty motive.

06/20/2013 - 3:54pm I absolutely agree that the

I absolutely agree that the passing game was better with Gardner.  My argument is that Gardner was better, in some - perhaps even major - part, due to Denard's movement to tailback.

I've read Part IV, and mgouser Colin posted the link to the SmartFooball article I mentioned again.  I think the article has great relevance to the topics you brought up here.  Specifically, the question of Gardner's later season success, and the marriage of running and pass play calling.

I'm a great admirer of your writing in this series.  My response here was aimed to help identify, in some part, why we saw such an uptick in passing success with Gardner.

I'd be willing to bet that there is an inverse relationship to Denard's success on the ground and Devin's success through the air.  Problem is that there might not be enough evidence to adequately examine this hypothesis.

With that gif I know someone's been browsing reddit...

" There is no doubt that the running game suffered without Denard as the QB, just as it is crystal clear that the air attack was far more effective"

This is where I think you might have gone wrong.  I think D Coordinators were smart enough to know that only Denard could muster yards between the tackles.  With him at tailback only opposing defenses clued in on him.  As a result Devin and the air game got better.  A film study might back this up, but mgouser Colin pointed to this very good article:

http://smartfootball.blogspot.com/2006/07/runpass-balance-and-little-game-theory.html

The better one dimension of your game, the more the opposing team figures it out.  For Devin to really have a breakout 150 rated season I'm staring directly at the O-line and some recruit named Green.

I'm loving the open ended questions, Heiko.  Med schools sounds like it is paying dividends.

05/22/2013 - 5:51pm Execution

There isn't anything inherently wrong in the idea of out-executing the other team.  Check out this article on Peyton Manning:

http://smartfootball.com/offense/peyton-manning-and-tom-moores-indianap…

His teams win based on simplicity and execution.  I do really think that the overly complicated West Coast offenses like Gruden's have reached their pinnicle.

Personally, I think that Borges and Hoke are establishing a great middle line between each approach.

09/13/2012 - 12:30pm Sophmore year: Denard

Sophmore year: Denard operates almost exclusively out of shotgun.

Junior year: Improve naturally as passer and run out of center sometimes.

Lump the stats together...

...Profit!

Are you seriously criticising the scientific method?  What would your rather have us use?  Magic!?

07/04/2012 - 12:37pm "God particle"

The higgs boson is referred to as the god particle because a physicist referred to it as the, "goddamn particle" for being so hard to detect.  Some publisher refused to stick to the name and shortened it to the "god particle".
