Running out of patience with the cranks on here who continue to actively not read or understand posts about statistical rankings and choose instead to counterargue points no one is making and operate

^^   meh, since May of 2020 after 5 weeks + of total lockdown and not letting my kids do squat and totally buying into the 15 days to slow the spread starting March 15 or so...I said F it.. I g

Can you imagine if the football team was as good as the media department?

1 video, and some reactions from local media based on one practice. That's all it took to anoint Haarberg. 

 

That's impressive, even by our standards. 

 

We almost completely skipped the Smothers hype cycle. We're reaching critical mass.

All this talk of Smothers and Haarbeg. Someone says hold my beer. image.png.0711646177e4bb8c8cc305a2b466243b.png 

 

Say hello to the new Vedral - not quite top-tier in terms of natural talent & athleticism, but knows what he's supposed to be doing on a given play better than anyone but Martinez (which makes sense considering he's been around longer than Smothers or Haarberg).

That's how you know we're already in mid-season form.

So he'll be playing for Rutgers when we play them again in 2022.  :D

I see Smothers going the way of McCaffrey.... The media, granted they did see much, were clearly not impressed from what they've said on 1620 appearances, and local podcasts.

 

Unlike McCaffrey, Smothers throws a nice ball.  He doesn't have a strong arm, but neither did Milton.  I took in some of those UCF practices Frost's last season, I promise you these same individuals would not have been impressed w/Milton during 7 on 7's either.  If you watch his highlights from that season, you'll see him lofting balls into open spaces.  I doubt he had more than a couple completions as deep as Smothers' under thrown passes traveled in the air all season.

100 percent. I'm not actually worried about Smothers and this offense doesn't need a bomber. This is peak fan/media bologna. He's fine and I'm excited to see him play.

I'm trying really hard to not drink the koolaid and get my hopes up this year and just take it as it comes. There was a lot of stuff to be excited about in the throws and catches in that video. Obviously it's a highlight, but still.

I don't know.  I think our overall team looks pretty slow in these videos...

 

 

 

Interesting that Frost's throwing motion is much looser than when he played and all the QB's have more condensed mechanics similar to him when he played.  

 

At least physically, Yant does not look like a true freshman, mid-year enrollee, walk-on.

He was here last year, so technically still a true freshman but normally would be a redshirt freshman. Either way I agree, he's a load and was a steal as a walk-on. And he has a chance to seize a role with Stepp out. 

 

Ervin looks bigger than I expected too - he gets the spring ball benefits that Morrison and Scott didn't have last year. Really curious how that all shakes out.

That's because he's been working to improve his stroke with Verdu...
