Re: Spring Practice is Here, Spack Comments

It looks like Trey Geogie is back to being listed as OL. I guess that means he didn't work out on the Dline, or we have more needs on the offensive side. Hopefully it's because we have a lot more up and coming defensive tackles. Oh well, can't blame Brock for switching people around. Some times tho...

Re: Two Deep Offense

Agreed. Even I could understand it. Thanks, Timmy. :think: I'm still confused .. I've scoured our roster .. there is no one even named Jack on defense .. or the rest of our team. I expected a whole lot more from you Timmy !! :mrgreen: Well there's a Mike and a Sam. No Jack or Will. My only answer f...

Re: Two Deep Offense

D-ends in a 3-4 are really interior linemen. They line up from head-up to an outside shade on the offensive tackle. He is normally a C gap player if there is a tight end. But he can reduce down and be a B gap player depending on the call. A 3-4 DE is completely different skill set than a 4-3 DE and...

Is it just me or does it seem kinda pathetic we're waiting for Timmy to answer a question like this?
I had/have an answer... but I'm quite sure you will get a better answer from Timmy

Re: Two Deep Offense

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, guys. I was looking at the two deep and decided it was time for another stupid question. I hope others get something out of this. What's the difference between the Jack and a DE? I see our two deep lists the defensive line as DE - NG - DT - Jack. Now, I like jargon...

Re: Spring Practice is Here, Spack Comments

good to hear, but Spack has been overly optimistic before .. he's also been dead on accurate (before 5-6 2013 season, and before 2014 Natty Run). Have to agree we are deep in a lot of places ... WR group is not yet proven, and clearly more unproven than any other group. Good to hear Davis came out s...

thanks for posting link ... I missed it. 3 comments that stood out for me. Great to hear there are 2 more OL he likes adding to group that returned 4 starters. Aaron Mends is rehabbing ... concerned he will have slow start, but have to get healthy first. Zeke will take over for Mathews .. can't wait...

Re: Tristan Smith leaves team

Well Leonard turned the Illini down when they offered him the QB coach job, so he isn't coming here for anything less than OC, which is also unlikely Putting aside economics, which is probably your main point ... I think the our needle is pointing higher than Illini. I also think we would beat Illi...

Re: Tristan Smith leaves team

as good as our track record is for finding RBs, we have really struggled to find good HS QBs. Kolbe was by all accounts a great get coming out of HS and got off to very promising start in 2016, but faded in 2017 .. IMO .. under OC Dicken's mis-handling of position and offense.

okay, my head is spinning here . . . . is Hatfield still here or did he leave too? Back to QB for him? Broadnax pulled the trigger too early. I get why these guys get itchy, but you know, hang in there, stay with it, your time will come!! Maybe . . . ;) they will need a 3rd stringer to run scout te...

Re: Two Deep Offense

Hope #25 comes back hungrier than ever ... he has to be thinking about NFL draft and how much our offense depended on him. And now Markel Smith is gone. We'll see of Proctor makes a good #2 to take some of load off Robinson plus be a change of pace guy to give defenses something different to game an...

Swaine Honored With NFF Mental Toughness Award

ok, so this one slipped by unnoticed by me and most of us probably. To be honest I assumed this was just another of a bunch random awards that society tends to hand out like a pez dispenser.
