  1. BTN Bus Tour

    Obviously not the level we eventually want but this is encouraging!
  2. Way Too Early 2018 Depth Chart

    Ozigbo being our 3rd string RB could also not be a good thing. Just because he’s there doesn’t necessarily mean Frost thinks more of him than we do, it could mean that we don’t have anyone better, which is a definite concern.
  3. Biggest Concerns?

    Probably a bit of a copout but I will go with depth. I think installing new stuff, which sounds like it’s going rather smoothly, will still take some time to get an entire rotation of players up to speed. Even some of the lesser opponents on our schedule have coaching staffs and systems that have been in place for a while. I have us winning 7 games and the only way I see that number going lower than that is if we battle some injuries that other teams may be able to absorb better in the interim. I think there are a couple positions where guys are going to play a TON of snaps this year, which could be a problem. ILB is one that has me a little nervous.

    Damion Daniels looks really good. I’m excited for his potential.
  7. Post-Practice Presser - August 8

    Getting a bit teary eyed hearing that Bryant could do special things this year. I figured he would be back, but I wasn’t sure if it was in his best interest with all the injury issues. Great news and glad to have him back.
  8. ** 2018 Opponent Previews: Colorado (Game 2) **

    The 2 win prediction takes coaching into account. I’m not entirely sure how he gets his numbers there, but that’s why it’s such a drastic difference. He gives their coach a D+ and their DC an F-. I think we win by more than a touchdown but I do think Colorado is more likely a 6-7 win team than a 2 win team just from looking at their returning talent. It looks like they’ll have the advantage at LB and DB while having an experienced QB and some serious talent at WR. But we should win in the trenches and that’s what will be the difference.
  9. I would say I’m cautiously optimistic and that I’m going with 7 wins because of it. I think there are 5 games that statistics say we should lose and I think we steal one of them while possibly dropping one we shouldn’t. I could see us winning more than that but right now, I need to see some of it to believe it. There are a ton of new players and some serious depth question marks no matter how the writers and coaches try to spin it. We have untapped talent, we all know that, but I think among those players are guys who were simple recruiting misses. I’m not sure we still have the talent on the team that the recruiting rankings suggest we do because of misses and attrition. Akron - W Colorado - W Troy - W @Michigan - L Purdue - W @Wisconsin - L @Northwestern - L Minnesota - W @Ohio State - L Illinois - W Michigan State - L @Iowa - W With Riley, I could easily see us losing at least one of those out of conference matchups but I think we will take them all this year. As long as the wheels don’t come off or injuries don’t hit too hard during the early conference stretch, then I think 7 wins is a given.
  10. ***2019 Recruiting***

    Not sure I see it with Lynn but I’m obviously willing to trust our staff.
  11. Pre-Fall Camp Presser - 8/2

    That quote about offseason momentum being for fans and newspapers made me laugh a little. Our staff set the spring game up so that it would be a hype machine. Love all of the other quotes, though. What a bumbling coaching staff we used to have.
  12. B1G Anonymous Comments from Coaches

    Those coaches were pretty spot on about their criticisms of our team and Diaco in the preseason last year. They get one more year to say we don’t have enough talent but Frost will turn that around by 2019.
  13. Re-Watching Games from Last year

    The Morgan TD almost felt flukey though, in the grand scheme of things. I didn’t think we played them particularly tough, Wisconsin was a team that pounded everyone as the game wore on and we were no different. I expect better going forward but this is one of the games I don’t feel confident about this year.

    Looks like Colorado LBs will be a strength because they also have a senior LB named Rick Gamboa who is supposed to be an all conference type. Not surprising to see Edwards and Connelly there.
