re: Based on all the Brian Kelly interviews, they are going to come after Fromm, - wdhalgren
I think their D will be in attack mode, on run and passing downs. I wish we'd do the same on defense. After all the talk about havoc, I'm not convinced there's much change in Kirby's passive defensive scheme. We have more speed off the edge than last year, but Notre Dame has the best OL we've...

re: Can WE stop the run? - wdhalgren
It depends in part on how the game is officiated. I watched the replay of BYU vs Tenn game on youtube. Tennessee's OL, WR's or TE's committed flagrant holding on a high percentage of their run plays and only got called once or twice. They were tackling defenders, grabbing their face mask, holding...

re: Running the ball against ND - wdhalgren
A good defense can stop or at least slow down the rush and make you beat them through the air. We were held below 200 yards rushing 5 times last year; Missouri, LSU, Florida, Alabama and Texas. In those games we rushed 180 times for 712 yards (including sacks), an average of 3.96 ypc. In all 5 ga...

[quote]They're giving up an average of 221 on the ground. [/quote] I'm not sure you can give much weight to that stat after two games. I watched the Louisville game and the UL quarterback Jawon Pass ran and scrambled effectively early in the game. Also ran a few option toss plays. When a qb do...

re: Jokes aside, do the VOLS actually have a shot at beating UF? - wdhalgren
[quote]I liked the matchup -- Florida's passing game vs. our secondary[/quote] I don't want to come across as a troll, but your secondary is not that good. Thompson and Taylor were overhyped by the Vol media and were starters only because the cupboard was bare and Pruitt knew he had a mulligan y...

Definitely have a chance. Florida's injury situation is getting ugly. I won't say Tenn is favored, but they have a good shot at the win....

re: Arkansas State 0 @ Georgia 55 Final - ESPN - wdhalgren
That was a good throw. If Landers wants to play for UGA, much less the NFL, he'd better start making some catches. Unfortunately our depth at that position is being winnowed down....

re: Arkansas State 0 @ Georgia 55 Final - ESPN - wdhalgren
ESPN hardly ever shows a replay of a missed penalty when it's Georgia's opponent. But if we get away with one, they'll show it from four angles and point it out....

re: Watching LSU vs Texas - wdhalgren
[quote]I respectfully think you don’t know what you are talking about[/quote] It's possible. I've been unimpressed, last year, and so far this year but it's only been two games. I'd rather see the most experienced guys hold it down because they're less likely to make bad mental errors. But if ...

re: Watching LSU vs Texas - wdhalgren
I wasn't talking about your overall defense, just Georgia's inside linebacker play and comparing to what happened on those plays. We're missing that run stopping LB who can plug the hole. They rarely attack the LOS on a run play, too often indecisive and don't advance before the RB or a blocker arr...

Watching LSU vs Texas - wdhalgren
Late in the first quarter (https://youtu.be/H5K5pwITkqo?t=1890), Texas had the ball first and goal from inside the LSU five yard line. On 2nd, 3rd, and 4th down, one or the other of LSU's inside linebackers crashed the LOS and stopped them short of the goal line. That goal line stand may have been...

re: 2020 Recruiting Thread (7/29 update - 5* RB Kendall Milton commits to UGA (#RunningBackU) - wdhalgren
[quote]Aubrey may have regrets. UGA has none. Go Dawgs.[/quote] As soon as Solomon said he was transferring, I went and watched every Michigan snap for him I could find on youtube. Even accounting for his inexperience, I didn't see anything that looked impressive. Would have been depth I guess,...

[quote]We’re 2 games in and y’all are saying a UT castoff is better than Nauta? [/quote] If you're going to accuse others of overstating their case, why overstate yours? As far as I know, Wolf wasn't a castoff. He still had a spot at UT, left voluntarily....

re: Random thoughts after two games... - wdhalgren
I wish Tindall could find a way to get on the field more. He seems more aggressive and makes way more TFL than the other ILB (relative to snaps played), but must be struggling mentally. I'm still doubtful that Mark Webb is quick enough to be consistently effective in pass coverage. Bill Norton a...

[quote]Which vol bastard is out there making copyright claims [/quote] That seems to happen a lot with vol videos. If they play better than expected, or win, then the video will stay up on youtube. If they play worse than you'd expect then it gets taken down. Might be the UT AD trying to bury...

re: Fromm's night - wdhalgren
[quote]Fromm had a deep pass called back due to a penalty[/quote] There was no holding on the deep pass. I'm thinking somebody on that crew decided they needed to slow things down because there was nothing that resembled a hold. ESPN had plenty of time to show a replay, but decided not to d...

re: Fromm's night - wdhalgren
Pruitt showed the template for Fromm last year. Stunts in the middle and blitzes from the corners. Jake hasn't gotten to the point where he can consistently make teams pay for that. And it seems like his ability to sidestep the rush and make a play has regressed since his freshman year. He'll se...
