re: Football Uniforms - NielsBoar
Age and perspective are funny things. The term "throwback" made me laugh and realize how old school I am. For me, the DMAC unis are not throwback at all. They are our unis. Sure, we went through our fastpitch softball phase there for a few years, but now we're back to a uniform a real football team ...

re: Comedy Gold from Chode - NielsBoar
I wonder if he explained to AU how they weren't performing well, or else he wouldn't be there :lol: I actually expect him to be reasonably successful there. All the systems and structures are already in place. Heck, even the offense is already in place and doesn't require a full overhaul. He can...

re: All these players decommiting - NielsBoar
We were going to lose a lot of those recruits even if we kept Morris, not to mention more player transfers at the end of the year. The right coach will salvage some of these decommits, bring some of their commits along, and keep transfers to a minimum. We'll survive. Probably won't be a banner year ...

re: Hy's Presser now, - NielsBoar
[quote]I'm honestly kind of surprised people point to Kentucky as the game this year that cemented their opinions on Morris and what he could do here. It was SJSU for me. Never expected them to beat Kentucky or anyone else in conference after that.[/quote] Yeah it was totally Kentucky for me. Not...

re: Starkel? - NielsBoar
[quote]Are you referencing an article? Is that your opinion?[/quote] The main point (I think) was the dramatic transition Brandon made with good coaching, with which I can fully agree. Whether Brandon was the worst ever early in his career is just hyperbole. Man I will never forget Brandon vs ...

re: Devin Bush and D’Vone McClure entering transfer portal - NielsBoar
Is there an advantage to a player entering the portal now as opposed to waiting until the season is over? Genuinely curious... I don't fully understand the transfer rules....

Shout out to Ben Hicks - NielsBoar
I thought he made some great passes after Starkel's injury. I also thought his scramble on 3rd and forever at the end of the game showed his toughness and put us in a position to convert on fourth down. He played really well....

re: Trey Knox is an absolute beast - size, power, speed, finesse, toughness - NielsBoar
I agree the potential is there. The pieces are in place at RB, TE, QB and WR, given some time to develop. Can the O-line step up? Can we correct the mental errors, dumb hole mistakes and poor play calling from Saturday? That stuff is hard to accept in year 2. The plays where Starkel nailed Knox a...

re: Can we discuss this upcoming season - NielsBoar
[quote]Arkansas led the country with 20 freshmen major contributors Petrinos first year. Chad is inheriting a situation more similar to what Nutt walked into that what Ford, Crowe, Petrino, or Bert walked into. Petrinos schedule his first year wasn't as easy as chad's and he was a blown call in the ...

re: Can we discuss this upcoming season - NielsBoar
As good of a coach as he was/is, Bobby Petrino went 5-7 here in his first year. How does the talent level of this team compare to the one Petrino inherited? Which coach will have had the easier schedule in that first year? I'm generally optimistic. I can see 7 potential wins and would be ecstatic...

re: All we had to do is catch a foul pop - NielsBoar
Very true. I'm still not giving Larnach a 2-0 fastball to sit on. I would try a breaking ball over the inside part of the plate - even if he crushes it, it's most likely foul. Or maybe a fastball up (and out) of the zone to see if he'll bite. But I'm not grooving one. I'd rather start over with Rut...

re: All we had to do is catch a foul pop - NielsBoar
When Cronin went 2-0 on Larnach, I was really hoping we would pitch around him, go off speed, try to get him to swing at something out of the zone instead of challenge him. That guy is a beast. Don't let him sit on a 2-0 fastball. In that situation, I'm only going after Larnach after he goes fish...

re: Is the SEC West really a tough division? - NielsBoar
It's the expectations and situation he is walking into. There are a lot of decent coaches who could take advantage of a rich recruiting area combined with a weak conference and back door their way into a national championship game. They beat Duke to win the ACC that year. They beat a good Clemson te...
