  1. Read LSU wanted him as LB. Will they keep him as a safety or create a position for him on D. Looks to be a great get. I really don't like Bama at all, but you can't argue Saban and Co can identify talent and develop it. Fish seems to be able to develop his room for sure.
  2. Any idea if it will be available on one of the streaming services?
  3. And we are still seeing the results of lack of development and misses for sure. Hard to make up ground when each year we seem to start from scratch.
  4. Matty balled out. One of the best open field tacklers I can remember. Didn't he have lke 9 INT's against OU?
  5. With our previous 4 seasons as a reference, going 1-3 would be an improvement. At that makes me puke to even type that. 1-3 as "winning"....
  6. Did not live up to the hype. I am hoping that with another year he will be able to read and react. Never thought of him as even in the conversation to replace JoJo...
  7. That team had some DUDES. No doubt.
  8. Sh!t. Typing from iPad on that one. Should have been "His success on the field will be hard if not impossible TO REPLACE in the first year without him. Dude is irreplaceable.
  9. JoJo was a DUDE. His success on the field will be hard if not impossible in the first year without him. IIRC, they created a position specifically for JoJo. Much like Bo with Haag IIRC.
  10. With all of the talent coming out of the state of Texas, they have woefully underperformed. With all of that homegrown talent, they should be in the conversation most years. There's no doubt that to win, "blue chip" players will make up the bilk of your roster. But Texas shows that coaching also counts.
  11. I know what scheme and stats show, but it seems like the players and even Frost spoke multiple times about blocking was much improved. One comment I didn't like was (paraphrase) Frost said they were firing off like he wanted or something to that effect. 1)As the HC, why did it take 4 years or 2) If it was scheme as you pointed out (and I agree with) why didn't you as OC/HC change it or adjust......Bottom line, regardless of how improved we are at the skill positions, if the OL can't control the LOS, we will struggle.
  12. As excited as I was for it to be on the B1G Network, I think I made it through about 15 minutes. I could not tell very much. It "was football", but like you said, so many guys out, 2 hand touch to start, very vanilla.
  13. I really think a lot of the problems have been scheme (lack of) and coaching. Upgrades all around IMO. Raiola is the question mark, but by all accounts from the players and even Frosts they are looking like they are actually being taught (allowed) to block.
  14. Sacks and INT's would definitely help the D. Saw Nelson say he wanted the D to average 1 more sack/game. Last year averaged 1.67. If we are getting more sacks it would mean more pressures. Hoping this would generate more INT's...
  15. A&M is showing the way with every scholarship OL getting $50k/year, I'd think a smart QB, like the NFL, will pay his guys money to keep everything going smooth. Here's a Rolex, thanks for the blocking this year.
  16. This defines the new error of college football. Pay for players and use the transfer portal. Recruiting is easier now. Hey kid, here's $500k. If someone outbids us let us know. I know that this is an incredibly simplistic view, and that relationships matter (Applewhite), but the day of recruiting, developing and a kid waiting to play are over.
  17. Wan'dale was completely misused as a RB at NU. He even said as much when he left. That he wouldn't play RB at the next level and NU wasn't going to showcase his talent. Having him be our "starting" RB his last year here was just another reason our RB room has stunk for the years after Oz. IMHO, had he stayed at NU, if drafted he'd have been far into the draft. UK showcased his ability.
  18. Colts got a steal on this one. If he doesn't make it there, I'm comfortable he will stick some where.
  19. HIs immediate presence will be felt game one. He will force B1G refs to actually call holding against our D for a change. That's worth it alone for me. I kid, kind of. The high light reel looks as though he is relentless. A guy that DC's will have to scheme for. Great job to NU for making it happen.
  20. Dude, is a dude. Would be a great addition to a team IMO. Swiss army knife player with good character. Would be a good kid in the locker room. I guess the 2nd team AA ddn't matter. Hopefully, he will get a FA deal and parley that into a contract.
  21. Haha. NU got that dirty NIL money. A great get for sure.
  22. He could do it live stream and use the money to go to NIL!
