  1. We actually discovered some decent talent on the roster (Cross, Ozigbo), when Riley/Langsdorf finally pulled the plug on the Newby debacle. It's shame it took them 8-9 games. God only knows what records Wilbon might have broke if he was allowed to run. Love how we rewrite history. Newby got injured and lost his ability to cut laterally and a large portion of his speed. But please, continue to talk to us about how poor of a running back he was now that he's beat out everyone else for the #1 spot this year. I've heard that claim before. You got a link for the report of this majo
  2. OWH There's a lot of truth here. It wasn't about 9 wins. It was the animosity with the fans and administration, the rants, the embarrassing behavior, and the overall sense that we'd reached our ceiling under Bo. I felt better about the direction of the program after last season than I did after any season under Bo post 2010.

  4. Take out the pre-season cupcakes and the one blown play against Minnesota and Newby was in the low to mid-4s. The continued support of Newby is perhaps the biggest reason to question Riley and Langsdorf's coaching abilities, IMO. If they can't see that he simply doesn't have what it takes to be a truly effective back at a Power 5 program, I really have to question their opinion of everything else. Eye test, stats, whatever you want to look at, he simply did not have it last year and it's not really even close. Even worse, I fear that his inability to move the chains will only further unde
  5. I think that 5.2 was inflated based on him getting virtually all of the carries against the pre-season cupcakes, especially South Alabama. If you take away the TD run he had against Minnesota—which was the product of a blown assignment by the Minnesota D, resulting in a hole big enough to slide a battleship through—he didn't do a single impressive thing during the season with the possible exception of that one TD against UCLA where he dodged a tackler as he fell into the end zone. He might have speed, but he lacked vision, decisiveness, patience, elusiveness, and the ability to break tack
  6. I just hope that Riley has the courage to give Ozigbo and Wilbon fair shots at the #1 spot if/when Newby struggles and doesn't just give up on the run game like he did last year. Riley needs to understand that Newby struggling is not an indictment of the run game as a whole but is simply a reflection of his limited skills. If we feed Ozigbo and Wilbon and give them a chance with artful plays, the run game will work just fine.
  7. Sorry. Players leaving their teams in a terrible spot because they are too mentally weak to face adversity is not worthy of much else. Truth hurts.
  8. I appreciate that he made the decision before spring practice to give the younger guys more reps with the 1s so that he doesn't leave us in as much of a lurch. This just reinforces what the other early leavers on the DL told us: Big body doesn't necessarily mean string mind. Good riddance.
  9. That's not how I remember it, but I'll take your word for it. All I remember is Suh was basically an above-average player after his junior year, nothing to necessarily get too excited about, then came out and dominated his senior year perhaps more than any other DT in the history of college football. But I think it's funny that you're justifying VV's decision in a way that is probably completely counter to how he's justifying it. You think he is a mediocre draft pick and will always be a mediocre draft pick, so might as well get the show on the road now. I think VV has been told he's a 3r
  10. How would have Valentine benefited by coming back for another year at NU? I'm just curious to why so many people are saying this. Because it would have given him a chance to actually show that he's a dominant athlete at the DT position and not just a guy who occasionally makes a play when he's not taking plays off or in the shop getting repairs for a bum wheel. I still don't see how he would have gone into the top 2 rounds by coming back for another year at NU. There was always going to be doubts about him from NFL scouts. Now, he doesn't have to worry about getting injured aga

  12. I find it surprising. IMO, he was our fourth best DT last year after Collins and the Kevins. He just never really lived up to the hype, IMO. I think he would have been better served staying another year, showcasing his stats without having to play in Collins' shadow, and hopefully proving to scouts that he can get through a full season without major injury.
  13. Ozigbo is your hammer in two-back or two-tight end sets. Wilbon will be the Sproles-type of back on screens and draws. It's that simple.
  14. I think it's limited to schools licensed through "IMG," which must be a marketing agency. In other words, it's a ranking of a particular marketing agency's clients, not every possible school. Ohio State and Oregon must use someone else.
