  1. Not sure what the announcer was talking about. That was not a TD to Ruiz and wasn't thrown by Johnson. It was a nice toss and catch though. Those plays move the sticks no matter what when the QB and receiver are in sync.
  2. Got to imagine that it is so much nicer for the players.
  3. OK, nice to see the inside of the field house. Now, how about performance on the field? Any new injuries? Are the QBs and WRs in sync? Any other position changes?
  4. I've got one extra Session 1 ticket for sale on Stub Hub. Section 102 Row N. I'll drop the price to $39 if you give me a day/time so that no one else swoops in to take it.
  5. Interesting article. Thanks for the link. I especially liked this particular way of spinning some of his throwing problems: Coaches who have drafted players previously with the intention of fixing their throwing motions often do so at their own peril. Jackson is one of the few who welcomes the opportunity. “I think the exciting thing about it is, I have so much more room to learn and improve,” Jackson said. “It’s just awesome. Coming out here to train, really work on my mechanics and stuff I’ve never been exposed to is awesome. You can see an improvement I already made since I got out here in January."
  6. Wondering who he is listening to prior to the actual drills. Does he not know how hard to throw on his own (or with help from his own advisors)?
  7. Maybe they should have Spring practice in the Bahamas! 😎
  8. It is also becoming a fallback league for players, especially QBs, who don't get to play much at the P5 level (e.g. Grant Rohach).
  9. Seriously? Rutgers, Iowa, and UC Irvine? Why those? Especially Iowa? Has anyone from Buffalo even been to Iowa? Maybe they meant Ohio.
  10. Interesting for the remaining QBs. They are given a great opportunity with Tyree leaving, but the receivers they have been waiting to throw to are also leaving.
  11. DeKalb is an hour from downtown Chicago and a half-hour from Chicago suburbs.
  12. Agreed. It is quite naive for athletes and their families to think that the coach who recruits them will be there when they graduate. Of the coaches in the link below, exactly half have been hired in the last three years! 27 in 2019, 20 in 2018, 18 in 2017. Only 37 were hired in 2015 or earlier. Only 26 were hired in 2013 or earlier, but exactly half of them (13) were hired in 2008 or earlier. I In other words, if the coach who is recruiting you has already been there for a few years, but less than 10, watch out! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_NCAA_Division_I_FBS_football_coaches P.S. And that is the head coaches who are the most stable. To expect that an assistant coach will stay is downright dumb.
  13. Extensions are necessary to keep recruits interested. The buyout clause is what really tells you how likely he is to stay.
  14. So did Vantrease get the redshirt for last year? Seemed like he played a lot.
  15. I wonder if we will get any indications of what the coaches are thinking about QB prior to Spring practice. For instance, does it matter which QB coach was part of their recruitment? Position coaches tend to favor their own recruits, whereas the head coach may have a longer term view.
