    Spring Preview: Wide Receivers

    WRs are among the easiest position for freshman to make an impact. As O'Leary used to say: "the further away from the ball you are, the easier it is to win a position early". That is not an exact quote, but he used words to that effect.

    Spring Preview: Quarterbacks

    Well, for starters, whoever played QB for us last year had far less time, on average, to execute a play than our opponents QB did. So, in that context, it is hard to judge the future performance on last year's results. Pass protection will cure a lot of ills. With that said, there was a lot of...

    Vols OL Grad Transfer comes to GT

    We most likely won't be able to recruit our way to OL success in 2020. In order to become more competitive next year, we are going to need guys like him coming in, hopefully a couple more. Our 2020 recruits will hopefully make a difference a couple years down the road, but asking true frosh to...

    Virginia Tech Postgame

    Not really. Too small a sample under difficult circumstances. He needs to see the field again though, just because. #4 has not won the right to keep the job IMHO. It is still an open competition, or should be.

    I guess we should have known

    it was going to be a terrible day when one of our guys, who was carrying the US flag as he ran out on to the field on hero's day, trips on Buzz and falls to the ground, dropping the flag to the turf in the process. To compound matters, he got up and ran away, leaving the flag on the ground...

    Virginia Tech Postgame

    I read a few pages and then zipped to the end. Look folks. It is the same story today as it has been every game this year. Our opponent was able to sustain blocks on us, and we were unable to sustain blocks on them. The only thing that has changed week to week was how many points got scored, how...

    In my estimation, Swilling had about 30 yards of penalties alone. Each one could have easily been a no call. The false start on the FG didn't happen. When I think of all the crappy luck we have had in Miami, this end result has been a long time coming. That miracle tipped ball landing on the...

    O-Line Status

    I would look for us to try and snatch up a transfer OL or two before next year. We still need to recruit well there, but if we expect true frosh to come in and dominate right away we will most likely be disappointed.

    express long term opinions based on short term observations. So, I have been holding off for a while, preferring to reflect on a larger data sample. I thought about posting this last week, so please don't think that my following comments are based on the single, most recent win. I am starting...

    My concern with Miami - Defense

    Keeping 2 backs in pass pro can work on occasion, but you have to remember, that will leave a total of 3 guys going into routes. It is hard to get separation when that is the case. If they blitz, the numbers may work out OK, but if they don't there will be in excess of two defenders for every...

    5 Games in: Observations

    If our offense sustains some drives and our defense does nothing different, at the very least, there will be fewer of those long drives against that take place. That alone will matter. Additionally, longer breaks help a defense for many reasons. Not only is there more rest, but opposing offenses...

    5 Games in: Observations

    On the offensive side of the ball, I never worried about the ranking of our recruits during CPJ's tenure. They were specialized type players not evaluated from the same pool as the mainstream. That includes OL as well. The rankings, although still bordering on bogus imho, may start to matter a...

    We don't need every OL recruit to contribute right away, but there will need to be a couple special frosh ready to go, otherwise it could take that long. Maybe there will be a transfer in our future.

    Thanks for that. In no way do I think CGC is a bad coach. If you really watch what has been happening within 3 yards of the ball, you will understand all the nitpicking of the small stuff just doesn't matter in the greater context. I'm not going to comment on Lay, nor the rest of the line beyond...
