  1. I heard something interesting about Tyreek Hill that I think also applies to Schwartz: Their speed is only useful if the QB can throw it as far as they can run in the time the ball gets there. Hill has Mahomes throwing to him, and Mahomes can seemingly throw it 75 yards with a flick of his wrist. At a certain point, if the QB can't throw it far enough, then the speed becomes neutralized because the receiver has to slow down to stay in the QB's range. I don't know if that applies to Schwartz and Nix or not, but I thought it was interesting and it wasn't something I had really considered before.
  2. I do as well. My concern is that if his defense is only “great” instead of “all world” then with the losses on the o-line things could get rather ugly. I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect Steele’s defense to be this incredible every year and based on what I’m seeing it has to be just to stay in some games.
  3. I'm worried that next year might be the year though. I know the O-Line hasn't been great, but they are ALL graduating and we haven't seen anything to indicate the guys behind them are better. Plus we lose our real stars on defense. If the defense falters even a little next year then it could be a long season.
  4. I think he’s here one more year unless the Iron Bowl is an absolute meltdown. Like others have mentioned I think next year has a real chance to get ugly.
  5. Kick 6 without hesitation. It was the first game my wife and I had attended in 5 years due to the birth of our son making it tough to attend games. Our seats were in the end zone that Davis ran to. We sat next to a father/son Alabama duo who were great to go back and forth with (son actually gave me a nip of bourbon off his flask for calling the 99 yard pass play to Cooper before it happened). When Davis scored I legitimately thought I was going to have to perform CPR on the dad. We went down on the field for about an hour. Then Toomers. Then just walked around on cloud 9 until God knows what time.
  6. I’m sure others have said this, but for the life of me I can’t understand why we don’t use Gatewood more on 3rd or 4th and a yard. He’s big enough that he could just fall forward and pick up a yard.
  7. I would prefer he NOT end up in Miami. Let them take Tua and he can deal with that dumpster fire.
  8. I think that's it. Pro punters have gotten so good at kicking it high with back spin that it looks like a Phil Mickelson wedge shot when it lands. And the coverage teams can get behind the returner and down the ball if he lets it go. The 6 yard line isn't great, but it's better than the 1 or 2 yard line.
  9. Seriously?! He didn't look like he even knew where he was after that hit. And the penalty for hits like that one should be more severe. That Tulane player needs to sit a couple of games, not just the first half of next week.
  10. THIS!!! Everyone likes to bag on the Power 5 teams for scheduling cream puff opponents, but those cream puff opponents depend on that revenue. If Power 5 teams suddenly stopped playing those games it would be a big problem for the Sunbelt's and the Conference USA's of the world. A lot of football programs would either be shuttered or would have to significantly downsize. Whether you think that is a bad thing or not is debatable.
  11. The YouTube TV package depends on your area, but mine gets NBC Sports and FS1 and FS2. That covers Premier League and Champions League, which is enough for me.
  12. So I just signed up for a free trial of YouTube TV. Obviously, I'm not watching live college football at the moment, but so far I am really liking what I am seeing. It is easy to use and streams flawlessly so far on my two Smart TV's. I have not tried it on the TV on the deck yet, which is a ways away from our wireless router, so I may need a booster to get a good stream out there. I'm a couple of days in to the trial and kind of kicking myself for not doing it sooner.
  13. I'm about to do a free trial of YouTubeTV to see how it works. The final straw for me was UVerse fighting with Nextstar, which meant I lost both CBS and NBC. If I like the trial run, then I will be cutting cable for good. Glad to hear it is working well for you.
  14. I tend to agree with you about Stidham, but I’ve seen several “experts” who still project him as a third or fourth round pick. I don’t really get it, but I’m not an “expert.”
