Looks like the Tigers will get commitments from Joseph Barksdale and Luther Davis.

 

IMO, helps increase ND's chances of landing Will Blackwell.

Has anyone even heard about Blackwell this week. Isn't he on the AAA team ????

No, the West DL consists of Everson Griffen, Brian Price, Luther Davis, Siddell Corley, Simi Fili, and Myles Wade.

AFAIK, Irish never offered Luther Davis and they pulled Barksdale's offer. I hope this drives Will Blackwell to us, because we desperately need him.

Hey Hope. Nothing much on the thread here I was harumpfhing and garumpfing over last night, getting more happy that ESPN is doing more chewing up Saban then Weis or ND Saw your post and your handle HopeSpringsEternal has to sum up how I look at 2007 now. :D

Donald

Edwards

Blackwell

Martin

throw in Trattou, Gray, Smith, Walls, McNeil and WOW I can't fathom the defense we'll have in 2008

i see you mention walls here jedi. well, after lambert went down he didnt look so hot. as a matter of fact, he was outright torched on several big pass plays. they blew past him like he was standing still. if it didnt happen right before my eyes, i would have never believed it.......

at first look i thought walls got burned pretty bad, but when they showed the reply it looked as if it was a two deep zone coverage meaning walls had a shallow corner of the zone and therefore let the receiver run right past him and into chinedum's part of the zone (in that kind of coverage chinedum would have to cover a deep half of the field, which probably is not the smartest thing considering how slow he was in getting to those deep balls). At any rate thats what it seemed like to me but i only saw the reply once so i could very possibly be wrong....i dont think it was a man to man but if it was.....wow.....thoughts?

jfs....I'm not here to make excuses for anybody because they all have to be held accountable, but I would have to agree with the last poster, looking at the replays it did look like shallow zone coverage for Walls on the particularly long pass play that he gave up. The safety simply has to get over on that play and Duke was always a step or 2 behind. As for Walls, I've made my stance on him and the other freshmen loud and clear. It is impossible if not just overly stupid to blame a freshman for giving up big plays to talented upperclassmen when said freshmen are getting virtually no valuable game experience in the past. By this I mean, yeah, maybe Lambert and Richardson are our 2 best corners, but there is no reason whatsoever, if you decide to not redshirt them, that Walls and McNeil didn't see more time in the secondary this season. I can't recall seeing Walls on the field significantly at all in the last 4-5 games and McNeil.....has he even gotten on the field since about the Penn St. game? If these guys are so talented, then why are they being left to rot on the sideline, especially in games that were blowouts? All this succeeds in doing is force us to watch the 'experienced' upperclassmen continue to get smoked, even against inferior competition (UNC), while the underclassmen and freshmen get no valuable game experience or snaps, thus stunting their growing heading into next year when they'll be more needed. If you are going to play freshmen, give them meaningful time!

This is how our safeties frequently get burnt. Again is the secondary coach or D coordinator responsible for teaching these kids how to play better zone?

 

By the way anyone else impressed with what we've seen from Bruton? I like his size he seems fast on the field with good instincts. I left him off the list in my earlier post but I like what I see from him

Ndukwe's feet suck...his play sucks...the only thing he can do is hit, but I think based on lack of experience and seniority, the kid got to play. Next year can only go up at that position, but he and Brockington are the two worst guys on the field. Sullivan is a second runner up.

looking at the replays with sober eyes, i stand corrected. duke is way out of his league... it does make walls look bad, however.

wave,

 

you really think Sullivan is one of the worst guys on the field? I felt that Sully was head and shoulders above Morton and Santucci and one of the anchors of the line. We could do alot worse than starting Sullivan at center, altho if Dan Wenger is better, than by all means give the kid a shot.

I agree with you, NY, Sullivan is our best interior lineman. Wave, if you watched him vs. LSU, he played real well, opening holes for Walker in the first half and doing a decent job on Dorsey, their AA. He is heads and shoulders above Morton and Santucci in the interior part of the line.

 

And no offense to TT, but Brockington is a better LB than him. TT made almost no plays, and even if he was in the right spot, he got run over by OL because he's so small. He needs to gain 15 lbs to play that spot. That being said, Brockington was far from good. He left his side wide open a few times on running plays.
