Jalin is more talented than anyone on your roster. He is a different level of playmaker.
I won't give you the time of day to discuss the incorrectness/immeasurability of this statement in depth.
Not to mention his hands are as natural as Denard's. How can you be a playmaker if you can't catch the ball?
We can hand it off to him
You don't have an OL to block for him in that case. Probably not the best idea.
Really? Our OL was a helluva lot better than yours(and that was using a TE as a Tackle)
What is Hyde? Miller?
You have no proven OL or DL....so what is your point?
Its funny you bring up last year though, because I'm pretty sure that awful LBs and DB corps help your team to under 50 yards in the whole 2nd half....
Is he playing behind last year's OL? I don't think so.
Easily one of the dumbest things I've read ITT.
all we lost is our RT. Everyone else is back, and we got Taylor Decker to fill in. Your hopes and dreams of this miserable offensive line for us are a fantasy.
Rude awaking for what?
All of those guys you named didnt do anything last year even with a threat like D.Rob.... .... Gardner is decent, Fitz, decent. But Green is totally unproven but will work well in your new style of O.
I dont see the number or caliber of skill at play maker.... IMO the only thing that is in your favor is OL (which is a big deal, in your type of O) We have better DL, more LB's, better CB's and DB's... WR's, RB's (at least for our system, I believe EZE is better in any case though), QB's....
Why are you bringing up Hyde and Miller? I never mentioned them.
Taylor Lewan ring a bell? Is he proven enough for you? Our RT Michael Schofield was also all-B1G last year, I'd say he's proven. As for our DL, they're actually pretty good. None of them are great, but none of them are bad.
I knew you would pull that card. What you guys fail to realize is how much Borges screwed us that second half. Your D still played great, but it was great OSU defense combined with shitty playcalling by Borges.
Also, one game doesn't tell the tale. You gave up 300 passing yards to Zac Dysert (who?), 28 to Cal, 49 to Indiana, 38 to Nebraska, plus a couple other teams got in the 20s.. That's pretty bad defense.

That's fine. I wholeheartedly disagree with this, and think there are FAR more pushes than advantages between the future of our two squads. But that's your opinion and I'm not going to argue with it. What I was arguing was the "fact" that we don't have any playmakers. Nothing more.
Really? because you guys got ran over by every good team you played last year.....
Brah save your breath, UM is king of the offseason. Nobody offseasons like them.
Saying that we have no proven OL when we have a RS SR OL coming back who would have been a top 10 pick in this draft? Yeah that's a stupid comment.
Taylor Lewan is a proven OL I've been pretty consistent in saying that we won't be amazing next year and most of my comments have been not too homerish, but that was a dumb comment and I stand by saying that.
I think it's Bench or Ferguson. I'd say Bench wins the job just because he's been in the system for a year already. I'm hoping Hackenburg redshirts.

While I think Lewan is overated(and nobody has any clue where anyone will go where in the draft until they enter their name), he's by any measure a sold college LT. I was speaking of your brethren, ones who are confident in the playmakers that are currently on your roster. Hopefully your line improves this year(I have no idea if they will or not), because you'll admit they were an average group at best last year for you.
Our interior OL was a disaster last year. We have high hopes for Kalis, but starting 3 new OL inside will never be great. Hopefully they can open more holes than they did last year because otherwise no matter who our RB is, he'll gain about 1 ypc like Fitz did last year
Fellas no need to argue. Just wanted to have a discussion about the outlook of your respective team heading into the spring. The game won't be played until Thanksgiving weekend. Long ways till then.

Not argue? Huh?
Defense easily. DLine, LB's, and Safety's are younger and a major upgrade on talent, but little to no experience. Will be interesting to see if they can gel. We have about 6 CB's who have or who could start. It's all about who can step up and win the starting roles there.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
Is such a thing even possible.
