It's not all just about getting playing time. It's getting college paid for too. He played his part and got some of his college paid for. He might be able to get a master's degree out of this too if he can't make it to the NFL.
Not even close to Drew Lock fumble and Gordon didn’t have a chance. Play calling is an issue since they let two Chiefs players fly past them into the backfield.
Kansas managed to bribe their way into a BCS bowl. I think they'd be a good fit to buy their way into this bowl too despite their 2-10 record. My second choice would be Bishop Sycamore. Ideally, I'd like to see Bishop Sycamore against KU.
Texas A&M has always been a sleeping giant in football. I was there for RC Slocum's best years and thought even he never really got anywhere close to what Texas A&M was capable considering all the talented football players who wanted to play at A&M. Fisher has one of the easiest jobs in pitching recruits to come to A&M.
What’s more surprising is that a Texas A&M coach hasn’t been more successful yet. Too many great high school Texas players want to play for them then end up going elsewhere.
What position are you playing at your bowl game?
"Missouri fans may want to watch Cuonzo Martin’s team instead: the football team’s run defense is terrible, and Army is the best rushing offense in the country." I think I can find better things to do.
After the rest of the month, is that when the numbness kicks in? Cause January-March look rough too.
I'm not saying Badie does or does not fit on this list. But if someone is going to make a historical comparison, Badie best compares with a 2017 Chubb. It's also inaccurate to say Alabama or Georgia are never going to give the ball as much to a running back when it has happened in recent history. The argument backs like Henry Josie -- who was similar to Rodriguez except that Rodriguez had slightly more yards on more carries and quite a few less touchdowns -- was that the ypc would go down if he ran it more.
Badie did more in line with and slightly better than Nick Chubb in 2017 with a much worse offensive line. Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Kentucky, LSU, Auburn, Arkansas, Vanderbilt have all (in the past decade) given their RB the ball nearly 268 times or more than 268 times in a given year.
I went up there with my son to check it out in 2018 to see if I wanted to send my son there. Felt a little odd and pretentious, but that could have just been only the handful of people I met that day. I've seen better facilities from poorer districts though. Someone who was familiar with both compared the academic environment to Pembroke Hill in KC.
I'm confused. If he took over in 2015, how has he only coached 1 year?
I don't see Mizzou as high as 11th, but we'll see where they stand at the end of the season soon enough.
I think he'd be a fool to leave right now. At Oklahoma, if he has a season like he did at Tennessee, they'll run him out of town. At Tennessee, they are loving it and looking forward to what he can do in the future. I think Heupel is a good coach and will become an even better coach as long as he sticks with one program long enough. Where does he want to make his name, in Tennessee or Oklahoma? It's going to be difficult living up to Stoop's right now and anything short of NCG appearances will be seen as not good enough. Oklahoma isn't going to be consistently better than Georgia or Oklahoma, so this is a bad time for any coach to go to Oklahoma and expect to stay long term. I liked the Heupel hire when Mizzou made the move and I liked the Heupel hire when Tennessee got him. Tennessee is a better destination than Mizzou was going to be for Heupel. Even if Heupel had stayed and replaced Odom, Heupel was always going to leave and we knew it. With Tennessee, they have more going for it and it wasn't like Heupel coaching a team he learned to become a rival of.
Odom started off with an offensive line that couldn't block and a team that was focused more on politics. Drink hasn't done much yet either.
Pretty stupid statement. Even in Arkansas's worst years, they've had better recruiting than Mizzou. Arkansas is always going to be a threat to win as long as they have decent coaching.
I wasn't on the field. No need to congratulate me.
Considering there is nothing cited by the author to back the claim up, I have to be skeptical of it. Nothing against Jake because I don't know if he had a quote on this that he didn't use, but journalists often fill in the gaps nowadays rather than stick with what is known.
I could see how Florida fans would actually be rooting against Florida in order to get rid of Mullins. Missouri may have improved but Florida should be able to do a heck of a lot more with the talent on the team.
Ok, I saw a different angle and it looked like his hand didn't get completely under it...but then I also saw Arkansas had one like that too.
I'd like to see another angle, but from the one I saw it looked like he got his hand under the ball.
Of course position coaching is more important. But S&C is very important when you're going to be up against stronger, faster linemen. In the past, they were not just coached up, but very well built up too.
I'm wondering how much the play the past few years has been because of the change of the strength and conditioning staff. Pat Ivey did a good job building the players up while he was there. A lot of the line players used to give him a lot of credit in part for their development.
Offensive line is about average. But that isn't enough against the top half of the SEC. They do need more depth still.
Nebraska had 3 national championships in the 90s and played much better under Osborn. Their last championship was also the last year Osborn coached. After he left, it was never the same. If they were so overrated, then it sure didn't show when the played any nationally ranked team.
Getting in a bowl game would be quite an achievement for how badly they've played. I do hope Tyler is able to keep it up and does get the record.
The people doing the designs aren't the ones suiting up. Most distractions from the main objective are not good distractions if they don't help to achieve the goal.
Yeah, they've been doing that for a few years now. I think they need to focus on football instead.
Really terrible accident. The girl burned alive while conscious.
