  1. I wouldn't think it's related to Purifoy. Javon will be our 12th scholly spot, still have room for 1 more. I think it's more about Flanigan liking him a lot and adding depth to our wing spots. Gives roster flexibility too i.e. Doughty focusing solely on a backcourt position, etc.
  2. Lol I'm sorry for the confusion, I listed them in order of their level of contribution at this point. I was not suggesting we put Bryce at the 5 😂
  3. We all know how much Brown has meant to our success but I wish someone would put a 2 sec cap on him having the ball. Either catch and shoot, drive and make a decision or swing the ball. Sometimes his 'dancing' as another poster put it, comepletely kills our rhythm. I agree with most of you that our top contributors (on O and D) at this point in the season seem to be: 1. Chuma 2. Dunbar 3. Horace 4. Harper 5. Brown
  4. I was curious to see what it looked like on paper, so I made a projected Depth Chart just based on my opinions. A few different sets for O and D. On paper, it looks like we have a lot of POTENTIAL versatility with the roster. I'm running low on faith in Gus and Co that we can take full advantage of that versatility just based on the past, however, I still hold out faith like any other good fan. I made my own position names just to highlight the player's role in each set: OFFENSE 20 Personnel, 'standard' set QB Bo Nix Joey Gatewood
  5. Regarding Gus's propensity to dictate to OC's decisions, I would have to assume that HF being a former Head Coach would mean that he'd be able to enforce/influence his own philosophy with much more success than his would-be predecessors (Lindsay, Lashlee, etc). If this is the case I believe our offense could be immensely successful with the skill we're bringing in. Of course, OL play/depth will have to improve as well. Everybody else in the business seems to get passes when they 'resurrect' coaches' careers, why not us. Unfortunately, it is about winning, otherwise we wouldn't be having t
  6. I was watching game day this morning and another name got brought up- Kyle Whittingham from Utah. He has done such a good job. Every year, competent, competitive, physical teams. I don't hear his name get brought up often, maybe it's a west cost v east coast thing.
  7. That's fair. But looking back to the UGA and Bama games last year, did it look like we were behind them in strength and conditioning programming? My point (and opinion) is that what we're seeing this year with regards to on field results has way more to do with bad schemes & talent/recruiting deficiencies at certain (and very important) positions, most notably the OL.
  8. Nothing personal, but your assumption is 100% wrong. Russell brought new science and training modalities into Yox's old school approach to S&C. I know bc of the struggles we're seeing on the field the tendency would be "I'd give anything to have Yox's old training style back", but believe me when I say Coach Russell has more knowledge and understanding of how individual human bodies work/perform than Yox by an exponential value. The bottom line with this particular discussion (OL) is that you can only do so much with DNA and our OL's DNA isn't up to par. That's a recruiting issue not a tra
  9. If we fire Gus after the season: 1. Bob Stoops - he is the only viable candidate with true HC experience at the biggest level, knows how to win and keep a program running. Also, coaches with time off come back refreshed, hungry and with new perspective that can help a lot. 2. Lane Kiffin (with an aggressive DC in the mold of Manny Diaz or something like that, although I don't prefer Diaz personally) he can secure our '19 Offensive recruiting class, turn Bo Nix into a star, continue to crush recruiting, etc. If he could round up a stellar Defensive staff or even just keep the
  10. *first time caller long time listener* I'd like to see us pump the stay screen out to RD and have our blocking receiver NCM release down the sideline and hit him for a big gain. Thanks for taking my call I'll hang up and listen
