    Week 1 watches in Flyover Football country

    I always hope for a good Texas team. You don't think that Ole Miss and South Carolina benefit somewhat from Bama being great again?

    Agreed. ISU's perennial egg in non-conference really pisses me off. The Matt Campbell special. [That said, there's a decent chance we aren't ready for UH next weekend. So we might join the club...]

    Week 1 watches in Flyover Football country

    And from a season-long competitive standpoint, I would argue that TTU's defensive performance might be the biggest takeaway. Not that anyone expected them to be good, but they actually might be worse than we expected. Which hardly seemed possible. A lot of the KSU and ISU stuff will get fixed...

    Week 1 watches in Flyover Football country

    As a BU fan, one of my biggest takeaways was the lack of outside WRs. I agree with that. (That and a pedestrian OL.) But I think that Kolar's presence would have changed the margin of the game, which was the initial question. They were unable to extend a lot of drives that they would have...

    Erroneous. Kolar definitely would have made a significant difference. He is the key to that offense. Allen is pretty much garbage as a receiver, as we saw today. That offense looks considerably different with Kolar. (Which is why you went out of your way to mention Kolar's value in your...

    Recruiting: Highland Park OT announcing tomorrow

    They should just be patient, actually win some football games, and then pick off some OL from other schools who have developed as seniors. Absolutely no reason to lower your quality standards at this point. Especially if you're UT.

    The 5 biggest Big 12 depth chart revelations

    As Travis pointed out, I thought we all assumed that Aranda would consistently bring 4. Were you expecting him to primarily bring 3?

    The 5 biggest Big 12 depth chart revelations

    I wouldn't read too, too much into the Logan part. As someone else mentioned on Twitter, Aranda really wants this to be a two-way player. WBK has never really dropped before and we didn't have a spring to teach him, so it's somewhat understandable that he might be a bit of a work in progress...

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: Ranking the 2020 cornerbacks

    TT was a 10.5 guy...as a 150 pound 16 year old. Ignoring all of that, he definitely plays faster than Mims, and BU staffers claim that he runs 40s (on campus) faster than Mims. Again, who knows what he'll run at the combine. Who knows if he'll be healthy this year. Etc. But speed isn't an...

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: Ranking the 2020 cornerbacks

    The difference in TT and Duvernay is that Duvernay was a very developed kid in HS, and he was really bulked up running his 40s at the combine. Tyquan was an undernourished and undeveloped Florida kid who was 6'3" 165 in HS. At 6'3" 180 he doesn't have bulk slowing him down; rather, he's...

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: Ranking the 2020 cornerbacks

    He's faster than Mims. Who knows what he'll run at the combine, but he ran faster 40s than Mims when they were both at BU. https://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/Athlete.aspx?AID=7749812

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: Ranking the 2020 cornerbacks

    Barnes and Milton are Baylor's best press-man CBs. It'll be interesting to see how we use Texada, who is much more of a bail-technique CB. Aranda loves press-man, and it sounds like we're likely to see a good deal of it from Barnes and Milton. All are sub 4.5s 40 guys, so speed won't be the...

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    Meh. It's pretty much always about the star players. Stoner as a league average (or slightly above) wide out doesn't scare anyone. Pretty much anyone can roll out an average WR. Having a solid supporting cast helps, but you need them command attention to matter. And I'm not sure that that's...

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    I think Texas and Baylor are comparable in a lot of ways at WR, which you've outlined here. I would argue that Jared Atkinson is the comp to Black, though. Both have had disappointing careers despite having physical talents that indicate that they're capable of much, much more. Both are total...

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    Personally, I think OSU's ranking at the end of the year is somewhat dependent upon Anderson. I'm lower on Braydon Johnson and Stoner than others (apparently), and I think they'll need Anderson to reach his potential to end up as the #1 WR corps in the league. But if Anderson is able to...

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    I promise, I'm not trying to be petty, but honestly, can you expound on what you need to see first? Even though he's been injured a ton, he has over 900 yards receiving. That's more than Brennan Eagles, Jake Smith, Sam James, etc. I would bet that it's more than half the guys listed in this...

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    He'll still be a freshman...next year. Seriously. He's been injured most of his BU career, but apparently he's looked good this fall. I assume Fedora will use him (and Ebner) on jet sweeps on a somewhat consistent basis this fall. Assuming he's healthy, of course. (Personally, I'm not a big...

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    And in terms of teams I don't have a bias towards, I would say that I'm probably higher on TTU than the mods.

    Ranking the Big 12’s space force units: The 2020 receiving corps

    Maybe re: Duve, but I think most fans would assume that if Smith and Whittington are healthy, they'll be a b!tch to deal with. Especially Whittington. He's going to be nasty if he's ever healthy.
