  1. I take it as a serious compliment that this is happening. I don't know that it was entirely to stop us, but given our usual success with online polls/games I suspect we were a lot of the reason. And they don't come together on anything. Urban Meyer still won't wear blue.
  2. There was also a fake field goal where the holder just flipped it over his shoulder to Henery, but I can't find a good clip of that. This one wasn't our trick play (and I don't know if a fake FG pooch punt counts), but it was a trick play that worked out well for us.
  3. Some good stuff about each of them here: https://www.profootballnetwork.com/big-ten-scouting-reports-2020-nfl-draft/8/ This guy seems a little higher on Darrion than most. One thing I liked about his reports is nothing stuck out as flying in the face of what I saw from the players. A lot of times you read these and it just doesn't match at all what we've seen - I know some of that is scouts knowing more what to look for technique-wise. But other than Alex Davis "Breaks down well, defeats blocks and flies around the field to make plays," it at least feels like they were watching the same games I was. And he does admit Alex wasn't very productive.
  4. Probably, but in year 3 of coaching a team with the resources/recruiting success we have you shouldn't be losing to any G5 team. Will we? Quite possibly. I would not be surprised. But I don't think it should be painted as a game we shouldn't win. We have a lot more talent, and in your 3rd year working with players there aren't any "they've built their program and we're still doing that" excuses. Cincy has been more stable and I think Fickell is a good coach, but we've had enough time and have enough talent that it's squarely in the 'should win' category for me.
  5. Not sure if I missed this somewhere else, but Bootle is now #7 (was #23) on the roster. Dismuke is #9 (was #19). That might have been in the update with the new freshmen numbers, but I don't remember seeing it.
  6. Despite only playing part time in one year (2018), he has 2 picks, 2 forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. Not sure how you want to count the fumble recovery, so that's either 4 or 5 turnovers in minimal time. The only players we have with more career turnovers forced are Domann (5 FF, 1 FR over 3 years) and Taylor-Britt (3 INTs, 4 FF, 2 FR over 2 years, but almost all were last year). I don't know of a good way to get the number of snaps played, but it wasn't a lot in 2018 and he got 5 turnovers. You can debate the proven part based on noot playing full time I guys, but you don't just stumble into that number of plays without being a playmaker.
  7. "Enjoyed learning more about Minnesota" as the response doesn't make it seem like it was incredible, lol.
  8. We have more talent than any team in our first 7 games - I know that has not translated to wins in the past, but in year 3 of this staff with better talent we should win. I expect to drop one, and I agree 5-2 seems likely. Cincy is probably the best team in that stretch, unless Purdue's offense clicks with everyone healthy or NW's new OC is magical. But they also weren't blowing teams out in the AAC, they lost some pieces, and we should be able to wear them down. Whether we actually will, I don't know. My bad, I was also using the link (apparently factoring in some dude's power rankings) instead of the posted odds. It will be interesting to see where that one ends up. They way I see it, we are 6-5 or 7-4, but likely coming off a 4 game losing streak. I think Minny loses to Iowa, Wisky, and Michigan, but they could be 8-3 and riding a 4 game winning streak.
  9. Funnily enough we're only currently underdogs in 4. We really shouldn't be favored against Minnesota (and might not be as we get closer), but it's pretty in line with a lot of the projections. We should win the first 7, and in the last 5 there isn't an easy game. Minnesota and Iowa are our best shots, and they are the smallest lines. I'm also surprised to see the Penn State line so small, but that will probably change as people bet the over.
  10. They're also just throwing stuff against the wall in later rounds to see what sticks - This one has him in the 4th to Arizona, and another in the 5th to Philly. Most don't have Khalil drafted any more, but this dude still has him in the 3rd. He's definitely dropped from some of the in-season hype, but I'd be surprised if he went in the 7th. His combine didn't help, but I agree the inconsistent game film is probably a bigger factor. And I've been a pretty big Lamar defender. If he came out and ran a 4.4 flat, a lot more teams would be able to convince themselves he could fit their system. But at mid to high 4.5s, you're looking at specific schemes and just outside corner which lowers his value quite a bit. That's not to say he can't be really good, but in the first few rounds the corners taken either have the potential to be a lock down cover guy, or the ability to play in the slot. His absolute best case scenario is something like Richard Sherman, but you don't bet much on a guy who looks like Sherman actually turning into him.
  11. Why is this in the Spielman thread? Gonna give me a heart attack! EDIT: Read the whole title, I'm an idiot.
  12. Ahh, you're from Missouri. This all makes sense now.
  13. For as much as this staff looks for specific body types at given positions, I like that they're willing to offer kids who don't fit the mold but are just great players. Being too rigid with physical standards for a position arguable cost us Bryson Williams, and Hopson is fun to watch. Really good blitzer and people go backwards when he hits them.
  14. I think it's more about getting them to the next level than college production. You have 2 2019 first-rounders, Kittle went early in the 5th in 2017 and has been a stud, Fiedorowicz went in the 3rd in 2014. They can sell the fact that they are churning out NFL TEs like nobody else, and I don't think most TEs are the type to need a ton of catches. The ones Iowa is after aren't afraid to do the dirty work blocking, I don't think they're looking for somewhere they'll be able to put up the best numbers. Meanwhile, we haven't had a TE drafted since Tracey Wistrom. I had to look it up. Niles Paul was a WR for us, and Cethan Carter is hanging around in the league but was undrafted. We have a lot of things to offer, but a track record of developing TEs at Nebraska isn't one of them. This staff did help boost Jordan Akins stock at UCF though, and again there's more to it than "which schools have produced NFL TEs."
  15. Right, it's one of those things where a bad call can look good and vice versa depending on the players. To be honest, I've heard very few critiques with any specifics other than the goal line at Purdue, and a general "obviously they're bad playcalls because we didn't score." "Too many screens" as well, but watching that compilation of all of them there really weren't that many. I don't think we can draw a complete conclusion on Frost's playcalling based on one year.
