  1. Agree with Ric to an extent, plenty do just that, the left has its share of toxic identity-politics as-well. The ugly divide we have isn't because of only one side having idiots. If you require examples I can spam away. AA I have mixed feelings about because at its core it's a double-edged sword. IMO the ratio of good to bad varies considerably based on how you execute it. Are you giving able folks a little leg-up or are you significantly changing standards to fill a quota? I know I'm being wishy-washy here but for me AA's appropriateness depends on the degree of usage. The idea about basing admission preference on economic status has actually been used to some success in the form of preference shown towards first-generation college applicants.

    2018 Alternate Uniforms Thread

    Verduzco might be the QB whisperer but Watson is the MILF whisperer
  3. Always good to hear that guys come back to finish their degree. Wasn't aware he was still playing football, that's cool.

    Navy SEAL Damian Jackson

    Plus he said he wants to play in the NFL, about the only way that happens is as a longsnapper.

    110 Man Roster released

    Noticed King and Alexander weren't on there, hopefully they have taken the "retirement scholarship" we can offer this year and it just hasn't been announced yet. This golden-parachute option is a huge opportunity to jettison dead weight off the football scholarship roles while still setting those kids up for their future.
  6. Yes, and this is why we really need to look offensive and defensive efficiency stats in terms of gauging their effectiveness. As far our pacing goes most college teams don't huddle anymore and UCF was something like 37th in terms of time between plays. So it's not like they were that far from the norm. Multiple factors outside of their offensive time between plays played into UCF having so many snaps towards the end of the season. We obviously will have to improve both our depth and conditioning, that should happen with time. UCF had to replace 7 starters on D going into the season, depth was likely an issue there. Didn't help that they played ten straight weeks to finish the season either. Their D likely was worn-down towards the end of the season, they looked like a different team after having a few weeks off to recoup for Auburn.

    OT Jayme Simmons

    Easy to see that Frost is going more old-school. They are finding athletic/quick-footed guys with a good motor and a big-frame. Get them in and we'll put good pounds on them, by their RS-soph year they'll be road-graders. Of course this approach requires more patience, but we can work Held's JUCO contacts to fill spots of more immediate need.

    BTN is the best part about our move IMO.

    OT Michael Lynn [Nebraska Commit]

    Ya I love Anderson's upside. He was undervalued when we got him because he's played one season at OT and at only 235lbs. He's already in the 260's. Two years under Duval and he's going to be 320lbs of whoop-ass. As far as Lynn goes he seems like a decent get that really wants to be here, held his own well at the Adidas camp. One of our remaining OL spots likely goes for a JUCO OT. Leaving us with just one or possibly two high school spots left, ya I would aim high with a guy like Benhart here.

    LB Spencer Lytle [Wisconsin Commit]

    Not liking how Wiscy is starting to ramp-up their recruiting.

    Tre Bryant back?

    Surprises me he doesn't wear some type of brace.

    Ohio State Domestic Violence Saga

    Yes, the situation screams complicity and cover-up, now they'll try to save face and money by firing Urban for cause. Ryan Day is an up-and-comer, there is a reason they jumped him over Kevin Wilson to keep him from heading elsewhere. Maybe he holds on to the gig. Thought Schiano might get it but looks like the Tennessee fiasco and what he might have known at PSU will keep haunting him. Still don't see why Alex Grinch gave-up the momentum he had going as Wazzou's DC to be co-DC to a guy that could well be stuck where he's at.

    I can bench-press a house, with the Barbies still in it and everything.

    Way Too Early 2018 Depth Chart

    Our depth is obviously worrisome, we are basically one-deep, really wish we hand landed some JUCO or grad-transfer help. On the positive side in addition to improved coaching we also have improved S&C, a scheme that is easy on O-line, and a mobile qb again.
