Re: Football Trailer

so might as well bump this misleading thread ... any word on The Next Step for 2019 ??? I've heard no rumblings ... usually we've heard some kind of teaser for this by now. Anyone ??? Would be nice even if they just did one segment instead of 3 or 4. BTW ... according to merriem-webster (botht of th...

Murray St from OVC is mentioned the most on AGS as interested in MVFC. Surprisingly EIU is not mentioned at all that I am aware.

Re: Offensive backfield depth

Totally agree on Proctor. He proved himself as a RB in the spring. I don't see him getting 750 yards this season (unless Robinson gets injured) but Proctor could be the man at the position in '20 so let's forget that slot receiver stuff. We have options at the slot. I would start with Grimes. We co...

Re: Front Page News

I'm really not for conference expansion .. I just don't like how it messes up scheduling and leads to inequities. Example with Colonial who has 12 teams .. their conference champ last year was Maine .. they went 7-1, but also benefited considerably from scheduling by not having to play JMU, Stoney B...

Re: TE Mitchell Lewis transfer

The TE position appeared stocked before the arrival of Lewis but even though Lewis is 6'5 250 Coach Spack doesn't see him strictly as a TE. He could play WR and I could see him being tried in the slot as well. I'd like to see Gillum and Lewis on the field at the same time. That might not be enough ...

Re: Depth Chart

With our front 7 personnel, we should be strong whether we go 3-4 with Jack or more traditional 4-3 in short yardage situations ... we've got size, depth, and some tweeners that can move around depending on whether we go 4-3 or 3-4. I also think we''ve got 3 more things in our front 7 cmpared to las...

I can see 9th (or better) if Davis steps up ... agree his experience as counselor at Manning Camp should be a positive. Looking forward to fall and seeing this team come together. p.s. no mention of Juco transfer RB Proctor ... that's ok, its good to sneak up on people, especially going into NIU gam...

Spack is recruiting him to transition to a defensive lineman, much like Adam Pittser.
:P
Tackling is not a part of the Sanders bloodline.
Wow.. dissing our hit recruits dad ... you trying to scare him away ??

P.s. besides, when you defend the pass right, there is no need to tackle !!!!

Re: Davis at the Manning Camp

Got to admit, I love that he is doing something like this .. though i have no idea if the camp is any good ... but it can only help him fine tune his skills. Equally important is getting on same page with his OC and WR group ... summer OTAs needs lots of reps and leadership from QB position.

Miami OH finished 6-6, but they were 6-2 in MAC games .. Their 4 OOC losses were to Army (11-2), Minnesota (7-6), Marshall (9-4), Cincinatti (11-2) .. some quality losses for a MAC team.
