    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    We have to all remember that for the more serious charges Maurice could face here, the question of whether the video of the three teens was assault or not does not actually matter. Going into the weeds on this on a message board probably scratches the itch to just discuss s*** on the internet, but it's not as relevant as a lot of people here think it is to Mo's overall fate. Remember that the felony child porn charges can be levied no matter what the answer to that question is. The circumstances surrounding that issue are probably much more relevant if/when the girl's family presses charges under the 'Revenge Porn' blanket.

    Take action against what?

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    The majority of the articles I'm reading will say that he "was charged in December in California for ____." But then I'm also seeing that the actual arrest warrant is pending approval by a judge. I admit that I'm kind of confused. This is my 'way too early prediction,' and that's all it is, so inb4 "jUst waiT Unt1l wE kn0W moar." But my prediction is that the felony child porn distribution charges will not wind up being prosecuted, but I predict that the ex-girlfriend's family will go to great lengths to press charges for the whole revenge porn California statute. Again - just a prediction.

    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    Thanks for the confirmation on overhead press. And I think I did misinterpret you on the squatting position, sorry about that. Your write-up makes complete sense. To put it another way, doing both back squat and front squat is important for explosive, athletic strength-related lower body power in certain sports in the same way that doing BOTH bench press and overhead press is important for explosive, athletic strenght-related upper body power in certain sports. On a slightly related note, I always think it's hilarious when you see a dude with massive front delts from all of the excessive benching he's done but then has underdeveloped rear delts. It's the classic "mirror muscle" gym routine.

    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    Mark Rippetoe describes the angle of the barbell needing to bisect the exact middle of the foot in both low bar backsquats and front squats. I have to disagree with the "ball of the foot" thing with regards to any squat lift; if you're centering the barbell over the front of the foot, in my own humble opinion you're doing it wrong. Bar should basically be bisecting your shoe laces in any squat variation. One thing that has been abandoned over the years in football strength training is the standing overhead press. The bench press has replaced it in importance which to me is one really disappointing factor. Think about a lineman's body position as he's gaining leverage and leaning forward; if only the bench press is done in the weight room, the shoulders/triceps are neglected in favor of more biceps-centric training. I wonder if Duvall does the overhead press with the guys, I'm interested in that. This is just gym nerd theory stuff though. I'm not taking it all that seriously one way or the other.

    How's this for you? If you put a gun to my head, I really don't give a s***. I want to win football games. I want there to be rules for the team that attempt to build character in these guys, a la "The Osborne Method." But go ahead and count me in the camp that is NOT creating some false dichotomy where Frost either recruits 85 Mother Theresas or he recruits 85 Charlie Starkweathers. Holy s***... *Edit: For extra clarity though just so this doesn't get misconstrued: He just plain shouldn't have sent the video back to her, though. That part is obvious. And imagine how painfully obvious it is to him now one year later, also.

    You beat me to the keyboard, +1. This is all the perfect epitome of 'bulletin board fodder.' Realistically, lots of players on the roster have done (or are currently doing) unsavory things. Seriously; that's a realistic take. Some of them get caught, and some don't. Bottom line: If Frost determines that team rules or NCAA rules were violated, he'll almost certainly kick Maurice off the team. If he hasn't broken team rules, then he probably won't be. I'm sorry but there's some self-righteousness floating around here that seems a bit naive.

    That part was there, yes. But that doesn't mean that it couldn't still come about from a litigation standpoint of the two other guys.

    Possibly because those facts haven't been cleared up to begin with, haven't gone to trial, or something of that nature. I'm not sure. I couldn't find answers to that very question in the original article in the OP of this thread. Seriously stupid of Washington to send this message to her, though. Holy s***.

    Way Too Early 2019 Depth Chart

    People have already pointed out the big question marks at safety also. A big part of our issues with getting to the quarterback probably had as much to do with not covering well down field as it did with physically dominant pass rushers. Have to be able to cover for that extra little bit so your guys can get to the quarterback. I'd say Williams is a sure fire starter, but the other is unclear. Really, really need to shore up better play at safety.

    Way Too Early 2019 Depth Chart

    This is still a defensive roster with way more questions than answers, in my opinion. Does everyone think that Ty Robinson will be redshirted? The 'play four games' rule is awesome for guys like him. Because of the rule you can basically be guaranteed to see him out there...but will they pull the redshirt with all of the depth?
  14. I think there's a good argument out there that says that our pass coverage was about as much to blame for the lack of getting to the passer as it was talent/size/strength of the three man front itself. We have to create a blanket of coverage. We have to cover for that extra second longer per pass play so that our pass rushers can actually do something. I have quite a bit of faith that Jackson and Bootle are going to work their a**es off in the offseason and will continue their improved play from games 7-12 this year. But I'm a bit worried about our safeties to be honest.

    OLine Work in Progress

    Yes, and that aligns with the Greg Austin quote at the top of this page from 11/25/2018. He points out how the linemen in the previous staff's era just weren't even prepared - both physically and mentally - to execute individual plays. And I go back also to the podcast interview of Charlie McBride right after Riley's firing where McBride just gives this information dump on everything he knew about the poor work ethic in practice under Riley. He recounts a time he visited practice and asked Mike Cavanaugh why there were only five guys prepping, and Cavanaugh's response was "because I only play five guys." There was just no preparation on any reasonable scale for a team that was trying to actually be competitive.
