Isn't this basically what Shane Morris did?

09/23/2018 - 1:14am Turner looks like the real…

Turner looks like the real deal.  Samuels hasn't show anything yet and looks like just a guy.  I would look for Turner to start stealing most of Samuels snaps unless he can show he can do something besides run straight.

09/20/2018 - 2:06am That's nice and all but we…

That's nice and all but we played SMU.  We need him to be the top RT in the B1G when we play OSU.  

09/17/2018 - 12:33am If SMU can convert 35% of…

If SMU can convert 35% of their 3rd downs, what percentage is Wisconsin/PSU/OSU going to convert taking advantage of the same thing?

09/16/2018 - 2:41am Does the NFL make any…

Does the NFL make any personal fouls a spot foul?

09/16/2018 - 12:27am Haskins looked mobile enough…

Haskins looked mobile enough when he was running for first downs against our defense last year.  Unless Don Brown fixes that problem, teams are going to continue to use that against us.

Isn't that how Ole Miss got Shea in the first place?  Gave his brother a job?

I believe Michigan is his only P5 offer so...

09/09/2018 - 8:14pm When they went to 3rd string…

When they went to 3rd string they also kept Honigford and Filiaga out there.  Not sure who was at center.  So 3rd string they replaced at most two guys.  I know Steuber was at RT.

09/09/2018 - 7:22pm Nice prospect, definitely a…

Nice prospect, definitely a SDE.  I'm not sure how bad FSU was trying to keep him, they had something like 4 DEs in their class already.  Then again, if you count Hinton as a DE, we now have 4 as well.

09/08/2018 - 10:53pm likely a slot/end around…

likely a slot/end around/returner type for us.  After seeing Hamler tearing it up for PSU and that frosh at Purdue, be nice to get a talent like him.

09/08/2018 - 3:18pm No Hudson on the OL in the…

No Hudson on the OL in the final drive

09/02/2018 - 9:50pm Hudson maybe.  I saw…

Hudson maybe.  I saw Mayfield on the sideline during the game and he looks undersized still. Don't think he is ready.

No idea what they were doing with Evans yesterday.

09/02/2018 - 9:48pm Of course we will improve,…

Of course we will improve, every team improves as the season goes along.  The problem is, I'm not sure the coaches are improving.  I see the same mistakes in coaching that we saw last year.  What is our offensive identity?  Why can't we field a competent OL?  Why does Brown not realize that on 3rd and long, you just have to stop them from getting a first down and it's ok to give up ten yards sometimes?  And while aggression might be nice, over pursuing isn't.

We are in year 4, I don't care about moral victories, I want a Big Ten championship.

09/02/2018 - 3:22pm Hated the move when we made…

Hated the move when we made it.  In hindsight, it isn't looking any better.  Can't say I have been all that impressed with Warde so far.

09/02/2018 - 3:16pm I wouldn't say their OL held…

I wouldn't say their OL held up fine.  They were definitely scrambling to protect Wimbush.  But Wimbush is a better athlete and they were able to exploit our aggressiveness with his speed.  They were able to get the edge though, maybe we were blitzing and getting caught inside, not sure.  We couldn't get the edge because Runyan kept getting blown up.

09/02/2018 - 3:11pm I don't understand his OT…

I don't understand his OT recruiting.  Sure we lost out on Hamilton to Stanford, which happens.  But then why do you turn around and replace him with an OG in the class? Nothing against Spanellis, but we need OTs.

09/01/2018 - 11:45pm Runyan was horrible.  JBB…

Runyan was horrible.  JBB had some issues early.  Will be interesting to see the UFR to see if he cleaned it up at all.  ND had a hell of a DL.  The good news is we probably won't see another DL that good until OSU.

Play calling seemed pathetic, maybe that was due to the OL sucking.  Predictable, conservative and mostly short stuff.  I don't know if you blame Pep or Harbaugh.

08/30/2018 - 12:34am Wasn't Gil already playing…

Wasn't Gil already playing LB by the time he was a senior?

08/27/2018 - 3:15am He already redshirted last…

He already redshirted last year.  I doubt there is much chance he is around for a 6th year.

08/27/2018 - 1:09am Albatross never said Bell…

Albatross never said Bell must not be any good.  

08/25/2018 - 2:28pm If only you included the…

If only you included the clip, or at least told us where we could find it.

08/23/2018 - 12:59am This.  The only people whose…

This.  The only people whose opinions matter are the OSU fan base.  

08/20/2018 - 11:46pm I don't think we have any…

I don't think we have any true freshmen at 3T

08/18/2018 - 10:20pm Didn't Marquise Walker have…

Didn't Marquise Walker have it first?

08/18/2018 - 1:02am Except for OT.  What I…

Except for OT.  What I wouldn't give to have Jansen and Backus as our OTs again.

08/16/2018 - 12:51am His teammate was faster than…

His teammate was faster than him, but Turner is so good at breaking tackles.  And is by no means slow.  I really liked what I saw from his film, no matter how many stars he had.

08/16/2018 - 12:48am UMbig has mentioned Bell as…

UMbig has mentioned Bell as a standout.

08/15/2018 - 3:52am Song is horrible.  And his…

Song is horrible.  And his pipes aren't quite what they used to be.  I'm going to go listen to some Oh Sherrie now.

08/12/2018 - 11:57pm I try not to be a stargazer…

I try not to be a stargazer.  I always watch film.  I've seen potential in plenty of lower ranked guys.  Metellus and especially Dwumfour were two guys who I liked.  I just don't see it with Woods though.  Word is he is being recruited as a DT, but if he isn't jumping off the tape as an athlete at 230 lbs, how is he going to look after he adds 60 lbs?  If he gets up to 290 without losing a step, he would be a 4 star easily.  But that's a big if.  

I think a good comparison is Kemp, who is looking like a solid depth player at this stage in his career.

08/12/2018 - 5:23pm bigger, faster, and doesn't…

bigger, faster, and doesn't play QB. So... maybe?  Did Gallon play piano?

08/10/2018 - 6:10pm I expected something like…

I expected something like this 30+ years ago.  I thought these days everybody was aware of the dangers of exercise in high heat and the importance of keeping hydrated.

08/08/2018 - 9:34pm He had an impressive…

He had an impressive highlight tape coming out of HS.  Very Breaston like.  People who follow recruiting and watch tape would surely know who he was.  Average fan probably couldn't name a single guy on the bench who wasn't a QB.

08/08/2018 - 9:32pm Run him on underneath routes…

Run him on underneath routes, screens, slants, drags, things like that.  Get him the ball in space with room to move.  Nothing wrong with the jet sweep, but if that is the only play you run, it is going to be telegraphed.  I guess if they don't even trust him to run underneath routes, then you are better off taking the jet sweep out of the playbook.

08/08/2018 - 9:28pm If an injury strikes,…

If an injury strikes, absolutely.  Is it only 6 scholarship WRs on the roster, one a true frosh who obviously needs to hit the weights before he is ready.

08/08/2018 - 12:51am Would you rather have…

Would you rather have another Urban thread?

08/07/2018 - 12:00am Hard to tell much, defense…

Hard to tell much, defense is non existant in that clip.  But at 6'7", and if he is a good shooter, Beielin gets the benefit of the doubt.

08/02/2018 - 11:53pm I think he did put on that…

I think he did put on that last 20 lbs and that was part of the problem.

08/02/2018 - 12:29am I looked  at their class…

I looked  at their class today for just that reason.  Seems we didn't really go head to head for anybody  except for the undecided Harrison and Keegan.  They have a highly ranked OG from SEC territory that visited here last year I believe, but we are pretty full at OG.  We were pursuing Steele Chambers last year, don't know what happened with that recruitment.  I like our current RBs, but I would take Chambers as a LB.  Maybe they were hoping to close strong with a bunch of 5 stars, but I wasn't blown away by their class so far.

07/30/2018 - 11:54pm Not only talking about…

Not only talking about Deloach.  Never thought we had a chance with him.  Now Giles and Dicosmo, and to a lesser extent Cine, are a different matter.  Much more realistic options that probably are not coming here.  

07/30/2018 - 11:33pm that's my fear.  Not looking…

that's my fear.  Not looking good for Giles or Robinson right now.

07/30/2018 - 11:32pm Never really seemed to be in…

Never really seemed to be in on this one so i'm not surprised.  Figured we were a hat on the table and that's it.

After that recruiting spurt a month ago, i'm starting to not feel great about how this class is going to end.  Too many guys we were feeling good about are trending elsewhere.  Long way to go though, things can change, especially if we are in the playoffs.

07/30/2018 - 2:10am Ike looks very fluid for a…

Ike looks very fluid for a guy his size.  Quick feet, moves well.  Benhart looks stiff in comparison.  He is taller, so maybe that's to be expected.  So hard to tell anything about OL from game tape.  They are all just so much bigger than the competition.

07/29/2018 - 8:30pm Paella?  Wasn't he a…

Paella?  Wasn't he a fullback on the team about 15 years ago?

07/29/2018 - 8:27pm Neg him all you want, but at…

Neg him all you want, but at least Bluey/Maizen would talk about football. With him banned, the little football talk we did have seems to have disappeared.

07/29/2018 - 2:50am I just don't see it, at…

I just don't see it, at least from the film I have watched.  Sainristil looks faster and quicker.  Sharper cuts, better acceleration, better speed.  Maybe it's the competition he is playing against that makes him look better.

07/28/2018 - 10:34pm Davion Weatherspoon is only…

Davion Weatherspoon is only a 2021 recruit?  That kid looks huge.  24/7 says he is only 285 but he looks thick.

07/28/2018 - 10:23pm They got a waiver to eat…

They got a waiver to eat pork?

07/28/2018 - 8:26pm I've seen his track times. …

I've seen his track times.  He is fast but his times aren't elite.  Then again, he just finished his sophmore year so plenty of time to improve.

07/28/2018 - 3:41pm I look at their film and I…

I look at their film and I don't know how Sairristil is a 3 star and Sanguinetti is a 4 star.  Sainristil looks much better. I don't know how they did at camps though.
