  1. I didnt spout off anything you jerk! CertInly no demands. Nor did I say anything about 2019. Maybe read first before you spout off!
  2. Same song, new season. Seeing is believing. Gotta have 200 plus yards on 35-40 carries. Another 250 passing. 41 pts vis 5 TDs and couple fgs per game. Defense needs to be 100 yards and 14 pts better. Good special teams & coverage. Thats a 75% win pct type team.
  3. This has been a problem for years. DONU has no sports info director SID so the media and fans are starved for good info to gather and discuss. There is a great opportunity to build the brand, recruit, publicize and so on and basically nothing. It goes way back to later Solich years when information started to be kept out (if it ain’t good dont say anything). Times have changed I guess but fans used to know a lot about players as students and personally (majors, backgrounds, etc) and the practices were open, video and reporting, interviews etc etc. Now we get snippets.
  4. Not as many as you might first think as some 5 year guys are going to pass on a 6th, free or not. Also, unless conference or NCAA and title 9 and budget constraints prevent, there should be an overall increase in collegiate athlete #s too. But there could be a slight drop in the class of 21 athletes across the country. I am more concerned about the loss of walkons (current members that may be dropped off) to make room new schollies.
  5. I am no baseball fan at all but this video was intriguing. Are there rules against wearing glasses? Why not take 20-20 vision and give a hitter lens to enhance it by a bunch - assuming such ‘correction’ is scientifically possible? Just curious. No doubt it has been tried! lol
  6. It always amuses me how many critics we have for every “backup” QB on the roster, whether they have played or not. I start with the view that Frost & Co wouldnt waste scholarships on QBs or any other position really so the guys are capable. Frost’s offense is very QB focused and average or below QBs will not win games for us. The QB has to throw very well, run well and make quick, smart reads and decisions. If not, we will punt early and often. As for Luke and Adrian, imo both are capable but neither has shown enough yet. Adrian at times has done good things but rarely exhibits
  7. I think the quote may have been Scott is a freshman inside a senior’s body - not the opposite? Wandale needs to return kicks as well unless Brown or another is better. We got to get big plays in returns and get field position edge by punts and coverages. Speed is vital.
  8. Callahan says team has been hitting a lot the past 10 days. Its only been 8 or 9 since pads came on iirc. Doubt we have hit everyday - how many practices actually since 9/30? Only one scrimmage in 10 plus months before we go to Ohio? Man, I hope the game is not a comedy of errors/penalties/miscues etc?
  9. One plus to having OSU first is we get to run our new and improved, but simplified, basic offense without their staff getting film to game prep. Future opponents may have that edge but with more time, maybe throw new/alternate basic plays weekly. ?
  10. Hm. So, is this an admission that the staff didnt know what their basic plays were before Lubick? What does this mean? I remain optimistic but it is troubling to keep reading the same sorts of simplify and pare down the schemes. Especially with third year starting QB and returning RB and O line. New receivers I get but hopefully the offense is getting improved and more difficult to defend not easier?
  11. As long as we replace a guy whose not playing well enough with one that’s better. Just a change without improvement is more of the samev. ugh
  12. If you dont increase the scholarship # by a typical 22/23 from 85 to 107/108, then you are effectively penalizing the next class (2021s) by denying them scholarships. I suppose you can automatically reduce the individual school’s total limit # when any existing scholarship athlete leaves for any reason. But it would terribly unfair to not raise the 85 limit to allow for existing plus new class to join. Attrition over time until the 5th year when 85 cap returns. I think it should go to 107 until 2026 when the 2020s expire after 5 years on scholarship. I think it wo
  13. So, the Big Ten is - reportedly -cutting roster size in the name of virus control of some kind. By strictly limiting schools to 170 daily test kits (includes staff and squad). Hopefully the rest of our present and future players (walkons and scholies) will be put on some kind of second squad off campus or somethjng. To be forced to jettison 30 or more or refusing a bunch of guys for the future. What possible safety reason can be given to justify denying student athletes test kits and participation when it costs Big Ten nothing? Why cant students visit campus on their own?
  14. 4 games is most likely. A slim chance we get 8 and slim chance we dont play at all. I am feeling unusually optimistic today so I will predict we play very wel vs Ohio State and keep the score within 24.
  15. Nice to actually have some real actual football talk by real actual players and coaches - finally. Some of the usual refrains that we hear annually but there is also less “working out the details” and more time to hit and show how much we’ve learned! Sounds like what I had kind of hoped back in Feb that by this fall we will field a better team. O line should be a B+ vs a D+ imo. TEs maybe a B- vs C- QBs - B vs C and WRs a B vs C- RBs a B+ vs B- That is a solid B/B+ ave. offensively. Defense probably a C+\B- maybe vs a C last
