my bad Willy...didn't mean to jump all over your ass. Just tired of some people saying how bad Gordon is.....no offense man. You just happened to be the one who replied to my post.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
I got you. I think most of the RR recruits can be upgraded talentwise, only part I was supplementing was I think Gordon was out of position to begin with thus we can't judge whether an upgrade is necessary or not.
It's all good Moon. I don't think Gordon is bad I just had high expectations for him last year that he didn't live up to in my mind. He kind of leveled off from the year before instead of taking that next step to being a great player. I was expecting that next step. Hopefully it happens this year.
The thing about Gordon and high expectations is I've never really had any for him, because most guys that are going to make a leap like that they usually flash in their younger years. Gordon has never really flashed imo making a big play here or there. I have no problem with Gordon starting and you can definitely win ball games with him, I'm just not getting any excited feelings about him. I hope I'm wrong and that you are right.
Once Lewan leaves, the # 77 needs to be put on hold kind of like the # 1 is. There have been some amazing o lineman wear that number. Shouldn't go to just anyone.
Magnuson or Braden will likely replace Lewan, either of those guys would be worthy, IMO.
The defense we run doesn't signify a strong or weakside safety, that they both play safety and lign up accordingly with the offensive fornation. What mames this different then any ktber defense with the strong over tje tight end end and fs to cover the receiver side? If you don't fully know, i think we should pull some diagrams of mattisons d and discuss hiw the backend is exactly played. I think we all understand how the 4-3 under ligns up in tne front 7. The weird thing to me is that with a safety (ss/kovacs) came up cloer to the line much much more then gordan, signifying there is a difference in the safeties.
Maybe the safeties really do play the same, but with the under, mattison preferred kovacs to blitz and that's what dictated him playing closer to the line
Should be Magnuson. Braden is a perfect RT IMO.
I think the coaches are really high on Braden. Still only spring so we will see but I'm not shocked. Kalis will be a force and the coaches likely wanted to spread the wrath across the line.
I am planning on this being the most talented line we fielded in a while....
Going to maul people
Moron on RCMB thinks MSU is as close to winning a national title as Florida, Florida State, and Michigan. Yes people, Sparty has gone full retard
Really looking forward to this weekend and having news filter out and getting little videos of practice.
March Madness and spring practice, one final month of these college sports before the long wait for fall ball.
Interview with Hoke. Mentions Drake Johnson, Tom Strobel, and Gardner all had good winters. Center will be fought between Miller, Burzynski, and Glasgow. He also said Braden will compete at left guard and Kalis will compete at right guard.
+1 for you
Cant wait for the 16th
He isn't on campus yet so I'm not sure anyone really knows. If he competes in fall camp and proves to be the best man for the job then no, but it's likely he will. The coaches though don't predetermine who red shirts and who doesn't. There are exceptions like when they know a kid needs to get bigger similar to levert on bball but as you saw with that nothing is set in stone when talent needs to be on the field/court.
