I think we’re seeing the best. And yes we are sunk.Jurgens was by far the best o-lineman tonight . . . and his snaps were, by and large, on the money.
Farniok and Jaimes have to be the worst tackles in the B1G. They are slow, have terrible technique, and far too often either miss blocks competely or aren't physical at all and fail to tie up their man. Hixson had a pretty bad night, too. I can only figure that they are trying to preseve RS for some of the really young guys and that we may see them later in the year. But surely what we're rolling out there aren't the best, most athletic guys we have on the roster? We're sunk if they are.
I haven't heard that term since like 1990-ish. But you are correct. For a second I thought that was Rariden the way he went backwards on contact. Rariden literally flew backwards on every snap in the spring.Hixson was skyed tonight!
Spent most of the night on his back looking up at it!
Yea, but they have heart and push our prima donnas that lack motivation to be better. Dang, if I hear this crap one more time I think I will puke. Is Clemson and Ohio State giving out scholarships to local walk-ons because their 5 stars are too entitled. That explains plenty if we need a Nebraska kid to motivate our supposed elite level recruits. Fill your roster with those deserving a scholarship and if a walk on works out, that's gravy. I heard this nonsense for years and also listen to those that opined and made excuses for not filling out our roster and tried to convince the masses that it was good so that we could give scholarships to deserving walk-on's.For starters, stop wasting Scholarships on walk-ons. How about going out and getting scholarship caliber players. The walk-on era is over and has been over for nearly 20 years.
I do like some of the young kids. There is a future in there and I wonder if the future isn't right now.Our defense is also quite poor. We will be exposed against any offense with a pulse that can punch us in the mouth. We looked fine defensively against four absolutely horrible offenses in our four wins. Our special teams also suck. Honestly, there is not one aspect of this team I look at and feel good about.
