  1. the problem with Flutie was that a BC man could not really hide the bias well enough....Brees a Purdue man i think the jury is OUT on there being a difference. We will see but im not that sanguine about it going in. aloha
  2. my instincts tell me we will have a surprisingly pass happy offense in 21....oline wont have the same experience and pass blocking comes quicker....defense will take a step back so we need points....coan likely starts ,,,but mr b may play earlier then expected....overall team will be weaker...kelly will react to that by throwing much more IMO....spring will give us hints of a more aggressive pass game for 21 aloha
  3. Aloha Ziggy Sounds like your happy & doing great....2020 was a bitch of a year....and the sketchy year got to our site a bit as well....lets hope 2021 is better for all the irish! aloha
  4. i dont think this is a big surprise....we have been having consitent high drafts of our best oline over the last years.... we have to be doing something right to win as many as we do even if we fall short in the big games.... we really EXCEL in OLINE in TE and lately in WR as well.... We tend to fall short of the stellar players at DL...although thats improved....at defensive back.... and at quarterback unfortunately.... Also its worth noting that our running backs are VERY successful here and not quite good enough to have success in the NFL....i think the major reason for so much success by our RBs at the college level and so little in the NFL circles right back to the premise...OLINE players have been good for us. a stellar QB and a lack of stellar CBs probably underpins our falling just a bit short from having great teams. aloha
  5. Yea echo, i understood at the time the explanation was rocket booster from years ago coming back...and of course thats likely correct....but even the explanation leaves it at "likely"....for space junk which often looks like a faux meteor...this was still odd...moving slower then expected, covered a large area...at an odd angle of movement appearing horizontal....and all lights moving at identical speeds.....it was weird that i can say. aloha
  6. I saw my first UFO in october,,,the 25th i think...driving around 9ish at night...a collection of low in the sky lights moving together caught my eye...so much so i said to myself you should pull over and look...i looked again and was momentarily mesmerized , then i looked back to the road and realized i was driving into the meridian,,,,,so it was unusual...a group of lights moving , no trails though, it was unclear if they were part of something bigger but they were clearly travelling at the same speed, in a group, 7 or 8 lights spread out in a pattern, it was so eye catching i almost had an accident. ive seen plenty of meteors and space junk that flares in like metoeors,,,this was not like that at all... in any case i dismissed it as just a mystery,,,,the next day i saw coverage on drudge of all things,,,then started checking local news and such and ,DAMN...lots of people saw it,,,and there was good video....the daily star posted such a good pic i looked and said damn thats it,,,there they are! i my not a believer in alien visitations at all.,,but it was strange to be part of a mass sighting that wasnt just on TV,and produced video as well,,,the explanation was sketchy as i recall...maybe the breaking up of some indian rocket or some such...but that did not at all look like that....anyhow...after years of driving on the road on the mainland,,,and lots of years peering at the uberclear hawaiian night sky,,,this was the first real UFO for me..and was kind of interesting for a skeptic like me to see something that didnt fit the explanations. aloha
  7. I would be shocked if he went in the second or third round...simply shocked. A great blocker....but his route running skills and hands simply have not been established in his short career.... His blocking alone will get him only a very late round in my view.. aloha
  8. make america great again.....what a joke this moron of a president is turning us into belarus... and the republican party has gone from the defenders of freedom to the purveyors of sedition... sad day for america...what the world must think...wow aloha
  9. Sign stealing certainly happens...its not a conspiracy theory...i dont know if that happened in this case or if it was just familiarity since we played before...but i would encourage measures to be taken just to be safe,,,, aloha
  10. I think its clearly Kizer as well....he has both the NFL arm and the NFL size....thats why he has at least made NFL rosters.... Golson was my favorite...he was fun to watch,,,he had a big arm for a little guy,,he could make all the throws and could extend plays really well.... Golson had two big problems...he got caught up in the KELLY QB indecisive era,,that time where kelly was changing QBs waaay too much,,,,that lasted for a couple of seasons or so....and of course Everetts Achilles heal was the terrible fumbling...that wasnt on kelly it just was a by product of Golson small size i think...but it was a bad issue...a game killer of a problem... Book i think has the least raw talent and physical attributes of the three, but is clearly better then Rees was,,,and like Rees i think we can say Kelly has gotten all thats possible out of both guys...Book and Rees As QBs KIZER GOLSON BOOK aloha
  11. Mele Kalikimaka to all my DD guys and gals! Go Irish!!! Aloha
  12. Game wont be over at halftime. aloha
  13. I had us beating clemson by 4 in game one....the reason is i went on record saying "the only way we beat clemson is if lawrence gets covid"....it wasnt really prophetic given how much of it is going around...but their we were...Trevor L out some other injuries...at home..reasonably low expectations given our history and us on a very long win streak... That game was really set up for an upset...and we got it. On the other hand...the title game seemed like every intangible was against us...Lawrence back...Clemson rolling...Lea quitting for Vandy (and dont tell me that didnt contribute to the teams worst defensive effort of the year)...the difficulty in beating a top three team twice in a few weeks..every thing pointed to a bad game...and we got it!!....Frankly i so knew what was coming the good start through me off...but the missed FG and the long Lawrence pass..and i knew that was that....Clemson likely is the better team...but not that much better....we ran into a situation that was simply too much....and we played like it. So now Alabama....and i see the intangibles shifting strongly in our direction...i wont bother to make the case we are the better team..we all know thats not true...and thats not on kelly or our players at all...they just get too many 5 star players that realistically translate into more talent. But we have talent and can play much better then what showed in that acc title.... so we go into this with alabama expecting a very easy go...a team coming off a major drubbing...a team that looks like it was overrated all season,,,a team that rarely even shows up in these big games.....To alabama this was a lucky draw...much better then ohio state,,,so now they can just dispatch us and wait on clemson.... That is the very definition of looking ahead...and no matter what they say...that bama team is looking ahead to its title game against clemson...NO DOUBT!. We are a team that barely got in after our worst outing in many many games..and we will be playing with low expectation for us....we will be loose ,,we will have adjusted to that sudden loss of the DC...we will have a major chip on our shoulder,,,Alabama unlike clemson..has NOT played us before...and will see some fresh match ups....Nd will have lots to prove and little to lose.... The intangibles clearly align well for us in this new years day match up... Will that be enough....ok thats doubtful but i FULLY EXPECT a much better outing....i think we stay with them throughout the first half and be very competitive all game.....can we do enough to win....well im not sure the NFLs jaguars could beat bama.... they are loaded it will take some luck and some breaks to take them into the 4th quarter.....and if we can...anything can happen.... IMHO This game sets up to be much much closer then many expect... I knew what was coming against clemson....i feel much more optimistic in the way this bama game sets up. Kind of surprised we had an almost full season...ohio state playing 6 games is lame and i hope they dont win....looking forward to a more fun game then last weeks..... Mele Kalikimaka to everyone aloha
  14. I really like this post Rocketsan!! aloha
