that's a really good question and, unfortunately, one I didn't get to ask. I think he can run, but that's not his game.
I believe you're right, although I'd have to check. I'd still guess Synjyn will start. I'll ask.
Thanks for the kind words. I sincerely appreciate it. Obligated response out of the way. You're right; I don't think it's out of the question. I'd wonder if Kansas State would stay ahead of Tech by beating Baylor.
They ran a ton after Smelter's injury (45/2 after halftime), so I'm inclined to think they'll do that again. That said, Waller has had significant contributions in at least four big games that I can remember (the long reception to open the UGA game last year, two or three catches against FSU in 2012, the long touchdown against Ole Miss and the touchdown against Georgia Saturday). I imagine he'll get a chance or two on play action.
I'd doubt it. They've gotten here this far doing it that way, it'd be hard to see them deciding to switch gears at this point. Moreover, plenty of the turnovers have been caused on fumbles, not just interceptions.
In terms of receiving threats, Clive Walford (Miami), Bucky Hodges (Virginia Tech) and Jed Blazevich (Georgia) were probably the best. Walford had two catches for 37 yards. Hodges and Blazevich both had one catch. I'd imagine coverages will vary, either a safety, linebacker or nickel.
My strong guess would be no (at least the one at Tech), unless the fee you're talking about is a significant donation to the A-T Fund. The training facilities are for Tech athletes. That said, I imagine there might be places around Atlanta that might have cryotherapy chambers. I might go to Impact Cryotherapy's website to see if there are any heath clubs or other such places where they're available. In talking to the CEO for the story, he said there's places, at least in Dallas, where they have salon-type places where you can use them.
Interesting. I would think Days, because it's not like he played poorly against Georgia. Johnson said that he got worn out, and that would presumably because he was the starter.
Sally gets the last word.
that looks like all the questions for this week. thanks again, everyone, for a lot of insightful questions. You guys know your stuff. And thanks to everyone who joined us. We'll be back next week for the ACC title game. In the meantime, there'll be plenty more stories and blog posts. please check back. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and enjoy the game Saturday.
It is. I think the fact that it just looks so different, even from other option offenses, contributes to it.
I suppose you're right. I was just pointing out the latest commit. Overall it is a good class, it would appear. If Tech can build on this year's success, I imagine recruiting will become easier.
I've never seen anything like that. I wrote a story a couple years ago (back when the Falcons were in the playoffs) looking at the rankings for all the starters. There were some four- and five-stars, but some three stars or even unranked guys.
GTRay and I think alike, apparently.
I'm not sure about that one.
ha ha. that's the boss talking. just a few more questions and I've got to get cranking on some stories.
I'm sorry; I don't have much I can offer. Anyone have any practical advice?
I don't know if I'd call it an inferiority complex, but, I think your premise is largely accurate. It'd be hard for someone's scheme to be more closely tied to a coach than his is to him. So that, and maybe his personality and a general distrust of media, is what leads to the contention. I imagine it gets tiresome/frustrating having to defend something that has worked pretty well.
I guess it depends on how you define "top recruit." They got their 22nd commitment the other day, a 2-star running back who won the state 100-meter dash title as a sophomore but is relatively new to football. I don't cover recruiting, so I'm going to have to plead ignorance on any big fish.
I think that's fair. there are times when he does it real well, and others that he holds back. He has been on sports talk radio more this year, but I think he takes a dim view of some hosts - and I guess most media - and maybe that has influenced things. I haven't listened to enough of his radio spots to have a better feeling. I know there are some in radio that aren't keen on him, and maybe he'd be better served by winning them over, but, again, that's not who he is.
ha ha. I know this probably sounds depressing, but I don't have a whole lot of animosity for any of Michigan's rivals anymore.
