  1. What did that poor cook do to deserve to be eaten? Does eating a great cook transfer their culinary powers to you? Are you friends with Jeffrey Dahmer?
  2. Is Noa officially the biggest dud of the new guys this year? You usually expect a grad transfer with pretty good stats to be a day-1 contributor, but here we are talking about ditching him for a walk-on with no offers.
  3. Martinez's screens aren't way off the mark like Armstrong's, but it seems like he tends to throw a little behind the receiver. So then the receiver has to turn away from the LOS to catch the ball, and ends up making a 270° spin to get pointed up-field. DING DING DING DING!
  4. Just what the hell is that supposed to accomplish? Are they supposed to be more motivated by less support? "The beatings will continue until morale improves!"
  5. @TGHusker It sounds like various Irish tourism & government groups fund at least some of it. There's a quote from the Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach) in the press release. https://collegefootballireland.com/sponsors/ https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20191014005490/en/Aer-Lingus-College-Football-Classic-Series-Continues
  6. Just for fun, here's a couple pics of Dedrick Mills (#26) from the 2016 game. Apparently there's a Getty Images photographer named Cody Glenn, lol. This one's just after he scored the game-winning touchdown.
  7. If you're wondering about attendance numbers for these games: "Apart from the game in 1989, attendance has never fallen below 38,000 for these games with a peak in 2014 of 53,304 turning up at Croke Park." https://www.americanfootballinternational.com/ncaa-college-football-returns-to-ireland-in-a-big-way-notre-dame-to-face-navy/ Edit: Wikipedia's got attendance numbers for each game: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerald_Isle_Classic#Results
  8. Question is, how much reshaping will there actually be? Barring transfers, almost the entire offense will be back for 2020. The only senior starters on offense are Noa and Williams, who are 'ORs' for the same WR position, neither of whom have made much noise this year. Those two plus Wyatt Mazour and Jaron Woodyard are the only seniors on the entire offensive depth chart. So the question on that side of the ball is how much the existing players can develop in the next year, and how much impact can next year's crop of (redshirt) freshmen make? I've mentioned several times now that O-lines take the longest to develop, so in the long-term there's still at least some hope for those players, but I don't know if that will be enough...
  9. I don't know too many college kids who have trouble staying up until 9:30pm.
  10. Please don't ever post anything with that logo again. It's awful, and was discontinued for a reason.
  11. Honestly, our 'improvement' over the course of last year is way overstated, IMO. About all we really did was tilt a few games from narrow losses early in the season to narrow wins later on, mostly from bringing penalties and turnovers down a bit. OLB is more of a failure of recruiting than anything, IMO. I said last year that OLB was probably our biggest recruiting need, and then we completely whiffed on OLBs in the 2019 class.
