  1. They already do. The best players go to the top 15-20 programs now.
  2. You mean they aren’t involved already. Did anybody pay attention to the basketball scandal with Adidas? Does anyone believe that after Kansas/adidas offered Zion the money, he went to Duke/Nike for free? And if Nike is bad... If the slime exists in NCAA basketball, it exists in football. And while I may believe in my heart that Texas is above getting dirty, I don’t know.
  3. I don’t know. It could be the classic trap game for Bama. Potentially bama could win by only two touchdowns.
  4. I’m not saying bama is better because of practice. I’m saying Gundy might sing a different tune if he had Bama’s talent and depth. He has neither and must protect the guys he does have. Because he doesn’t have the depth. But now he has a team that tries to outscore the other team because he can’t stop them from scoring. Sort of like the quintessential Big 12 team. Quintessential Bog 12 teams haven’t won a national title since 2006. But the SEC, Ohio State and Clemson have. All of those teams have one thing in common they hit hard, they tackle well, and they’re deep. Oklahoma has outscored one of those teams once in an Ohio State down year. They’ve lost every other game against those power teams. Herman has beaten them.
  5. WhAt have they proven? You can beat Colorado by 20 without physical contact in practices. And lose to Miss St when you have physical practices. Whose defense scares you: ok st or Alabama? Last year everyone beat the PAC 12. All the Ivy League follows the same rules. And I couldn’t tell you Dartmouth’s record, if you spotted me the record.
  6. Dabo has two guys out for the season. Justyn Ross just missed a game with an injury. Does ou have a defense?
  7. That’s total bs. A sprained knee is a sprained knee; it happens because you land awkwardly not because you hit someone hard in practice. If you separate a shoulder it occurs from the hit not from an accumulation of hits. If you don’t hit in a practice, you tackle like we did under Charlie. I don’t see near as many arm tackles, whiffs and attempted knock downs as we did before Herman... Still happens but not much. Clemson has a bunch of injuries; Alabama has a bunch of injuries; Ok State has a bunch of injuries. It’s a physical game played by big people I’m fine with taking targeting and blind side hits out of the game. But not training to hit in practice means they won’t do it in the game. If we want to make it 7 on 7, you don’t have to teach them to hit hard.
  8. How many of these were from practice? I saw most of these in games. Should we not hit in games. Maybe we can play the Dartmouth tackle dummies.
  9. What doesn’t work that way? I can’t tell what you are referring to. I can tell you that Saban and Meyer have physical practices in the off-season and during the season and that have won at a very high level. You mention Dartmouth and Ok St. Ok St has won but it would be hard to argue that they have won at The Saban and Meyer level. It would also be hard to argue that Ok St plays physical football. Ok St tries to finesse you because they don’t have the talent of those teams.
  10. Adimora looked better than “break glass if needed” on Saturday.
  11. Now we know why David Beatty hasn’t been hired yet.
  12. I’m not trying to minimize the Dartmouth revolution here, but exactly how many national championships have they won in the big boy division. For that matter how many national championships, or for that matter conference championships, has Gundy won. Coaches who like hard hitting practices include Saban and Meyer. Though I dislike each; their records speak for them.
  13. Our place kicker is good for the first time since Mack’s Penn State transfer Fera. We have a good punter. We stuffed Ok St when they attempted the fake. I agree the punt returners made big mistakes. B Jones won’t make his mistake again. And J Smith might midfield a punt again but probably not at that time of the game. Those mistakes are fixable during the year. Not having the talent or desire isn’t. This team looks very talented and passionate to me
  14. I totally agree. But what I liked about it is that this is the first in the last ten years that we win a game when we muff two punts, have an interception and a fumble.
