Then it's a loss I wasn't expecting. They had a good defense last year and I haven't seen anybody from that side of the ball transfer. So if they do win it's going to be with their defense. I just don't see it happening. I don't think we blow them out by no means, but I think we win by 10. Like I said in an earlier post, I think we are going to be better than people expected again this year. If we can rush the QB and make them get rid of the ball earlier than they want it's going to help our secondary which is our biggest concern.
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
someone wasn't loved enough as a child.
I thought this was a must win prior to the transfers..
if i remember correctly they lost a quite a bit from their defense last year..
You saying that because he will have graduated by 2015? Or am I reading it incorrectly...?
2012 - r-so
I wasn't knocking JO, he does a great job, and gives you all great info. He knows what he is talking about most all the time.
I was knocking webbi because that's his only source of info.
I was right, because it had been in the works for over a year, just slowly spilled out. Just because you didn't know what was going on, and why his dad was working at the auto plant doesn't mean anything. Again all you know is what you read, not my fault.
On a serious note, I've got a ton of UVA/former UVA players items from college and the pros. Obviously in addition to VT. In going to post them all tonight to be bid on through Sunday at Midnight. All of the sales from the UVA merchandise will go to Kidz 1st fund. Just wanted to give y'all a heads up, got stuff from London, Farrior, Zimmerman, Moore, Schaub and many more.
Joe said he could get you stuff from Dex as well...Dont know if you ever followed up with him on that or not.
Yea I've got a bunch of stuff, I couldn't think of it all, I'll have pics and everything of each piece tonight. VT stuff also, and some pro teams, skins, caps, boys, steelers
Sorry, I meant he would be gone by 2014.
I will hold off on judgement of Simms until he plays a meaningful snap in a college game.
Ah ok. And I dont know of anyway to ask this without sounding like a dick, but here goes..
You really think that a kid who couldnt win the job at Bama (not that big of a deal, but still...) and now has to come in and learn an entirely new system....all the while having to battle the incumbent for the starting job at UVA, will leave early for the NFL? From what ive read from you guys, he will at best share some starts this season with Rocco. So assuming he starts a few games, then hes full time starter in 2013...you think thats enough for him to bolt to the NFL...?
Honest question. And im not saying its impossible, just seems like extremely high expectations for a kid who hasnt thrown a meaningful pass in college yet.
Height and Weight day...you Hoos expecting any surprises? It's always interesting to see who is a bit off of what they said in High School.
Maccaron didn't seperate from Simms before the start of last season. If you remember they were both playing in the first couple of games, Macarron had a good game the third week of the season and Phillip didn't. They rode Macarron to the national title, I'm from the old school that if aint broke don't fix it. Saban was going to go with Macarron until they lost, which never happened expcept to LSU and with their kicker missing 5 FG it wasn't Macarron's fault. Sims is a talented QB. I hope they don't switch out QB's and play 2 like they did to start last year. If Rocco wins the job in training camp it should be his job. If Sims wins it then he should be the starter week 1.
I don't hold Sims not starting at Bama against him, I hold him going there against...him
You go away from your home state and coaches simply don't have the same thought process as the home state coaches....I'd say that in nearly every state. How many more times is Saban going to recruit OS? VT and UVA are knocking every year, he'd be in his 3rd year as the starter at UVA. LT may very well be at TE...stuff tends to work itself out
We'll just have to see, but the most glowing comments and priase of McCarron is that he is a good game manager and won't lose the game for you. Time will tell
I agree, and that is what the Hoos have in Rocco, but the Hoo's don't have Bama's D...so they need a guy that can put up points not a game manager. I think they can grind it our vs PSU, but will need more after that.
Please check this thread everyone, and can someone please post it on wahoos247
Im having a silent auction to raise money for 2 charities to go along with my golf tournament. All proceeds from this silent auction are tax
Sims didn't play a single snap in game #2 @ Penn St, so it seems Saban's mind was made up after Sims threw 2 ints in 14 attempts against Kent State in game #1.
McCarron threw 2 ints in game #1 as well, but he did while throwing 23 passes, and he also threw a TD.
what are you guys expecting with practice today?
I understand all that, Im more curious about your leaving early for the NFL prediction...
I'd like to see Zack turn up the heat now that he is in his 3rd year, that's when they should be up to full speed.
Mannning, how can he do as light as he is?
Exum, how will he do as big as he is?
How are the injured guys doing? Mainly B Taylor.
How is the QB thing after day 1 in Hoo camp? I can't think of something I have been more interested in regarding you all, this will go one of 2 ways...very good or very bad, and it may look like both at times, and the final result won't be known for more than a year. Interesting to say the least
My motto for all of camp and the whole season.. NO INJURIES.
This plus I'm interested to see how some of the freshman look. I want to know if Caleb will pick up the playbook enough to force himself into the rotation. How has Coleman improved since the spring? Donovan Riley is another I'm interested in because I think he will see the field this year. Lastly, who will emerge as our return men?
