  1. Here's a link on ostarine https://www.mynvfi.org/ostarine-mk-2866-review/
  2. Good point -- Maybe that's what works for us.
  3. ESB had a great game. Looked like he was a head taller than anyone they had covering him.
  4. My issue is the short routes by Kizer. I wonder if his percentage was better on the medium and long routes over the short routes. He just seems lack touch and timing. I was on the chat room during the game and the word we used was finesse. He just lacks finesse right now.
  5. You;re right. As a whole 33 points isn't good. But I think the silver lining was only 6 points in the second half. Ok, we're trying to take small steps here. Something to build on.
  6. Only 6 points allowed in the 2nd half. Looks like the defense seemed to figure it out as the game went on. First half was like the first few games. But it seemed in the second half they started to understand what was asked of them. Still a lot of work on tackling needed.
  7. Good win today. Defense actually played well in the 2nd half. Maybe we're turning a page here
  8. One very simple point that has bugged the crap out of me all season -- When a defensive tackle vacates the A gap, the LBs or the DEs need to fill. We have had so many times this year where the DTs rotate out of the A Gap and no one fills. I don't get it. I noticed it a little against Texas. Although against Texas I was struggling to find out what was that 3-3-5 we were running. Then I saw it against MSU constant, and again against Duke (not all the time, but on more that one occasion). So hoepfully the new D Coord has the boys communicating better/working together better.
  9. Check it out. What makes up a zimmer defense. http://www.dailynorseman.com/2015/6/8/8750195/so-what-exactly-is-a-mike-zimmer-defense
  10. Secondary needs to work on pass coverage fundamentals. I remember seeing nick Saban years ago as a DB coach teaching the secondary how to cover. It was so detailed with arm and body position. Then he had them do it over and over. How about Lyght focusing on that all week?
  11. I was at the game yesterday. I would say that the crowd was pretty much where you were. Not much complaining, just watching the game. Maybe it was the heat? I don't know... Then at the end after Duke kicked that field goal, and we missed on 4th down. The crowd just started to leave, almost stunned. No complaining, no anger, just silence. It was weird. I did get to meet Torii Hunter Sr. I was sitting next to him in section 7. That was probably the biggest highlight of the day...
  12. It was a nice looking young lady that asked the question and Brian Kelly was trying to be funny to her question.
  13. interesting at the 33 min mark. Kelly talks about how they practice tackling. He states, we utilize the "whiz" technique. Where they tech the players to "whiz" by the ball carrier. The intent then is that they would learn to tackle thru the ball carrier. Im not sure its working out that way. We practice whizzing by a ball carrier, and we seem to play whizzing by ball carriers. He said they are switching it up this week. Whiz isn't working.
  14. that TE block was pretty weak. But the MSU blocking was great in general. We had no answer for 2 OL pulling and they did it over and over. Amazing that we don't do that. It's all scheme...
  15. I haven't heard the crowd boo in a few years, but after those back to back run plays, down by 29, the crowd then boo'd pretty loudly. I can see pushing the run even when you're down one or two TDs, but when its 4 TDs it's not going to get you there. He just needed to attack the secondary sooner. Now the real question, did we not prepare for MSU well? The weakness at MSU has always been the secondary. Not necesarily their top corner, but normally who the safety is nickel is covering. I think we should have come out passing right away, and set up the run from there...
