  1. I'm happy that the D only gave up 13 points, but Purdue's offense is pretty 1 dimensional. But I'll take it for now. A few times in key situations Rees went empty backfield. I hope he rethinks that because Coan is no threat to run and our tackles need help as mentioned here. Agree Baker played a pretty good game. Agree that Kyren and Kyle are beasts
  2. Pretty cool those kids got to take a PJ for the visit.
  3. I didn't hear that, but several people I know who follow them closely feel really confident they will flip him
  4. If we can hang on until 11/27, they may have 4 losses after they have to go on the road against Wisconsin, Penn State, Maryland and OSU. Think they will have trouble with all those teams.
  5. Tackling was definitely an issue. They popped guys in the backfield a number of times only for them to escape and pick up chunks of yards. I would be really interested to hear why they were in that alignment for so long. My only thought is maybe they knew it was hot and FSU was on a roll, so they figured if they kept giving up 4-5 yards that would keep the clock moving and was better than giving up quick strikes. The problem is they still gave up big chunks on the ground, FSU was in hurry up and there was plenty of time left. The offense didn't help in the 4th quarter by not really moving the ball until the last drive. The formula they had in the first half was working as they focused on limiting the run and they were able to generate pressure. Even in OT, when they got to Milton, he lost the ball.
  6. I think FSU is much improved. They are definitely a bowl team. I don't think we can stick with MTA at DE. He looks too slow and immobile and lost contain a few times. Not sure what that 3 DL look was or why we stuck with it so long. Should have stuck with what we did in the first half - stop the run, force the throw and pressure the QB. Agree our OL needs some work, but nice that we put up 41 points. Glad to see Doerer get those 2 FGs. We will need him. As well as Coan played, if he didn't underthrow a few other balls, they may have had 14 more.
  7. Thanks tneun- yes, except for Schrauth who could decide at any time, and who knows who he will pick, it seems that we have to get these other guys on campus for a game. From that group, our best shots for a full visit are Nwampka and Kanu. For Lucas and maybe the others, it might have to come down to an in-home visit. It will certainly be interesting to see if any other names pop up on a visitor list in the fall, maybe Judkins, Bradshaw or another new name. It wouldn't be surprising to see new names committed elsewhere visit if they want to look around and be sure. No idea who that would be, but with the restrictions on visits this year, this could happen.
  8. Not relating to Botelho, but to the question about when the last time someone was caught: Dexter Lawrence and 2 other Clemson players were suspended in our 2019 playoff game with them. On the institutional testing, is that required by the NCAA? It seems like window dressing as I would imagine many schools either tacitly or overtly promote using PEDs.
  9. Agree - seems like we're left with big game hunting on defense (Moss, Nwampka, Lucas and Heru) and all of them either want to take fall game day visits or generally plan to announce in December of January. On offense we're looking for that last OL prospect (Schrauth, Wagner, Rice) and maybe a 2nd RB if one emerges in the fall. Either way, the class is very good but could be great with a few more of these guys.
  10. Big time shot in the WR recruiting arm this week with CJ and Tobias. I didn't realize CJ told the coaches he was coming about a week or so after his official visit. Kept the rest of us worried for a month
  11. Stoked about this pickup! Look forward to seeing #5 in the Blue and Gold! If we land Williams, that will be a great WR trio, and certainly will be interesting to see what the staff does to fill out the WR class.
  12. I thought Judkins' film was decent. Yes, he is not on the same level as Singleton but has pretty good size and 26 offers. He looks slightly better than C'bo did in HS, but not quite as skilled as Diggs. I'd stay on him and consider as an option, especially considering Kyren may go pro and no guarantee that C'bo returns for another year. By comparison, Flemister's next best offer was GA Tech, yet he's been a pretty valuable contributor on short yardage, closing out games, etc.
  13. I just saw an article where a few Bama writers were debating whether To'o To'o would even start this season. Crazy how much talent is on that roster.
  14. With Morrison's commitment, looks like our defensive recruiting is down to waiting it out for Lucas, Nwampka, Moss and Kanu. Kanu is likely going to wait until the AA bowl in January. I believe all 4 of would be takes if they wanted in at this point.
  15. Makes sense - I figured they did that ahead of time.
  16. I agree with you. There was some discussion about this in one of the recent podcasts. My vote is let these kids have their moment and then send that out afterward. But maybe the staff talks to the kids about this ahead of time and only does it if the kid doesn't care, who knows?
  17. Imagine on some downs we could have Junior at Mike, Kollie at Will and Sneed at Rover, with Burnham and Zeigler coming off the edge. Shoot, we'd have to swap people in as we'd also have Foskey, Botello, Ford and Gobiara on the edge.
  18. Agree. Oklahoma seemed to really get things started in the late '90s when opening up the offense. They've had 4 QBs win the Heisman since then: White, Bradford, Mayfield and Murray with a few others in between who were pretty decorated in their own right. Pretty good story to tell prospective top shelf QB recruits.
  19. Looks like Fitzpatrick committed to OSU. Hopefully that helps us with Wagner to your point.
  20. Side note for anyone who is following this, but Jack Nickel just committed to Sparty. Good for him. On CJ Williams, I think he said he was going to decide in July, so we should hear on him in the next few weeks.
  21. If we land Morrison, I feel pretty good about the DB haul. Tneun, I think you're right that the staff likes Moore as a boundary corner, but he or Bellamy could certainly play S. Ideal scenario is to land Nwampka and leave Moore at boundary, letting Bellamy start out at nickel / slot.
  22. Really happy with this defensive class. We have some great ballplayers and playmakers. Hope we land Sneed, Pope and press for the 2 cherries on top in Nwampka and Lucas
  23. Devin Moore! Very good corner class!
  24. Jayden Bellamy just committed. Most people think he could be a good slot / nickel corner. If you watch his tape, he definitely has a set of jets on him. Few more spots open at the inn in the defensive backfield.
  25. Agree - they have to shift from "take your time to make sure" to locking up both of those WRs sooner than later. Whereas some recruits like Rice help ND the longer the recruitment goes, these 2 hurt ND if they drag things out in my opinion. I'm hoping that Singleton really wants to come here and defy local pressures, but if he decides on Penn State, we still have a very good back already in Price. I wonder if they go to alternate guys at RB as they could have some turnover in that room after the season if Kyren goes pro and Flemister doesn't return for a 5th year.
