  1. Cleanest Programs

    LOL @ Mark Dantonio
  2. Post-Practice Presser - August 17

    I'd agree with this. It always take a tough game to realize that they won't work. Grant vs Washington in 92' was prime example.
  3. Post-Practice Presser - August 17

    It will be interesting to see if he goes with a kid that he wouldn't of even recruited, or the one who he said was the best fit for his offense in the country...
  4. Post-Practice Presser - August 17

    Including taking over a team on NCAA Football, or in the real game of college football, I have yet to see the safe QB who starts game 1 pay off. If someone could please post examples I would love to see it because I know I can pull data suggesting the opposite. You don't want to throw AM to the wolves, but we have a good 3 game stretch before @ Michigan to get him prepared. The mistakes will come, but I think in the long run he is just a way better payoff.
  5. BTN Bus Tour

    $180 for cable and internet? Seems real steep. I pay $130/month and get 80g internet and all the channels besides HBO. I would assume your DTV will go up at some point. Again, I'm okay with paying extra for non-steaming TV.

    Bell seems like the guy who will get the most carries at this point. He has an odd running style, some footwork reminds me of Helu, but he can't quite house it like Helu could IMO. Washington has the shake and ability to go yard more than any other back on this team. Then pound it home with Bryant/Oz occasionally
  7. Roster Turnover. New Faces

    I know none of this is a shocker, but when it is laid out on paper it is impressive the late additions that Scott Frost has added since taking over in December. There are many guys who will start or see lots of playing time this year. 15 players and I would guess 6 starters off a team that didn't really lose many guys who had a lot of PT last year. This staff has shown they want to win NOW. QB: Adrian Martinez RB: Greg Bell, Maurice Washington WR: Mike Williams, Jaron Woodyard, Miles Jones DL: Vaha Vainuku LB: Will Honas, Breon Dixon, Caleb Tannor CB: Cam Taylor, Will Jackson S: Deontai Williams, Tre Neal, Cam Jones

    Yeah that is fair. We will see come September 1st. I guess that is all that matters
  9. Post-Practice Presser - August 15

    Gotta admit. Surprised that Freedom is over C. Davis
  10. Biggest Concerns?

    CB: We have zero proven guys at this position so far. We really need someone to step up. Biggest concern by far for me OLB: Our pass rush has been abysmal. I feel good about Ferguson, but the opposite side will need to play well. Gifford/Dixon/Davis Center: The staff wants the best 5 guys so it will be interesting to see if Conrad can hold his spot down or if we will have to shuffle around QB: I love Martinez, but at the end of the day he is a true freshman that didn't even play his SR of HS football. Hopefully by game 4 he is ready to roll with the tough B10 road games K: Another true freshman that will have his stones checked. We've had great success at this position and we will see if that continues Overall I think we have a pretty good football team. Not great, but definitely enough to take that first step forward under Frost. The defense will be improved this year. What we have going for us is the meat/middle of the defense - DL, ILB, S. It's the outsides that will have to keep contain, tackle in space, and challenge receivers. Offensively we have enough up front as long as they stay healthy. QB will make some mistakes, but he will have good skill players to get the ball to and help his job a lot. One nation under Frost #GBR

    Yeah I had Barry starting initially. It even could end up being Honas and Barry. Hopefully Young has taken a step forward. I just think Barry needs to be on the field with his vocal intensity as Young/Honas lack that.

    Depth chart less than 2 weeks. What does everyone think of the edited first post?
