Did today's news change anything for anyone? I expected the Lingafelter commitment but the Dionte Savage news threw me off. I dont think we should go for another OL. Too many needs elsewhere.
Paul James, Tyler Boyd, Malik Brown
Paul James, Mario Alford, Brandon Golson, McEvoy, and Tyler Boyd
Sounds like a good addition to finish out the class.
You can cross James off. He's going to Illinois.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional !
Looking kinda good to finish with
Alford, Hyman, Golson, Alexander, Lane
Don't know what McEvoy is waiting
Boyd would be a great finish to the class
I'm sure there will be a few new names this weekend
what news on DS, didnt see anything today?
I think it was yesterday Oklahoma offered so he is visiting them not us. So we were out of the picture but got our other lineman target shortly after
gotcha...thought there was somethign new today. Fun times..
I want to see some get your knuckles dirty and your nose bloodied type of interior DL. I don't care what stars you have. Just be big and nasty! Looks like we are going to be light again on the interior of the DL again. Iknow they aare hard to find, but I'm not sure we have a coach on the D Staff that can take and develop a good interior DL men. Coach Kirlav come home!
Boyd, Alford, Hyman, and Lane
Give Slaughter a chance. I think he's a pretty good coach. Kirlav is the last guy I want back.
I agree with you. Coach Kirlav did a great job at WVU but that has left the barn. I think Slaughter can do the job....as long as he doesn't have to play true frosh at DL (like 2012 season).
I don't in anyway think that Coach Slaughter is a bad coach. I think he will do good things for us. I just think he's specialty is DEs and OLBs. Yes, Kirlav has left the barn, but you can't deny that he could take average linemen and make them good. Too bad we don't have room for another coach. Christian Brown will prove Coach Slaughter's ability to coach all line positions, Hey, how can you not like a guy whose last name Slaughter and coaches D-line!
If we could get a couple of 320+ lb nose tackles to go along with Howard and Benson in the middle at LB.... would be a nasty. And, I'm sure the coaches feel the same way. If I can think of it, they've probably all ready had discussions in their meetings.
So Rowell going from minimal snaps in 2011 to being a real force at NT in 2012 can't have anything to do with Slaughter. Our DL this year was actually pretty solid, and a lot of guys got played in their true positions like Wright at a outside technique, when he was overmatched at a zero technique where Kirlav played him.
