That's the hope, but ultimately it's up to the players to make that happen. Just a few practices into the spring, some of the veteran DBs were really impressed with some of the techniques that Gibbs was teaching. He makes takeaways a priority every day. His track record suggests they'll find new ways to get the ball back to the offense. But, and I keep coming back to this, the best way to increase turnovers is to create havoc with a pass rush. Get quarterbacks unsteady and off schedule and force them into mistakes.
That's what I'm here for. Thanks for stopping by.
Nah. Mizzou football was completely off my radar as a kid. Their games were never on TV and the team was pretty horrible when I was at the impressionable age when kids get emotionally invested in teams. I was a Mizzou basketball fan during the Peeler-Smith years but I didn't have one player I idolized.
My guess is he'll make an announcement on Instagram right in the middle of everyone's Easter brunch. I don't expect Mizzou to release the news unless something changes between now and Monday. No idea why he hasn't already made an announcement. The Porters rarely take the conventional approach
Lock got rid of the ball fast, so he was harder to sack than a less decisive quarterback who hangs onto the ball forever. Bryant will be elusive back there and his speed should allow him to avoid the rush. I wouldn't think you'll see him get sacked very often, especially with Durant protecting his blind side.
Mizzou baseball recruiting isn't really my thing, but I'm glad to see this team winning some games and becoming more relevant. I wish it was a more appealing sport for local fans to come out and support, but there's so many factors that work against them. Weather, parking, etc. At this rate, MU should make an NCAA regional, which would be a huge achievement for Bieser and his staff.
Martin hasn't done a formal postseason session with the media and I'm not sure he will, so I don't have the latest info on Smith. I've talked to Cuonzo a couple times in the last few weeks about other topics, but not Smith. In March he said he fully expected him to be ready for summer workouts starting in June.
I don't know what kind of playing time he'll get, but if they want to use him on a trick play, he doesn't have to be a regular in the rotation. You just throw him out there and see if you can execute the play.
He threw the only INT in the spring game and didn't look as sharp as I've seen him in other practices. Also, he was playing against the reserve defense - underclassmen and walk-ons - so this was a prime opportunity to move the chains and make a strong impression. Odom made it clear after the spring game that the backup job wasn't settled. I'd still be surprised if Lindsey Scott makes a strong push for the No. 2 job. They might want to take a close look at Connor Bazelak this summer and if anything let him play in a couple games without costing his year of eligibility so that he's got a nibble of experience before 2020 gets here.
I have no idea if he'll be rated that high. He had a strong junior year. This is his final college year of eligibility, so no matter what this is his last college season. He'll get a look from the NFL for sure.
I haven't heard any credible reason why he would get a waiver. Also, the school he leaves has to approve of the waiver, and from stories I read after the season, Duquesne was counting on him for next year. So, they might be unlikely to sign-off on a waiver.
I just think he's suited for that job and he'll get more out of the tight ends. He felt like he could teach the receivers the basics of playing the position but he can really provide insight to the tight ends, the nitty gritty tricks of the trade when it comes to getting open, reading coverages, blocking techniques, etc. He believes Albert has only scratched the surface of his potential and that his speed is incredibly unique for his size. He was really impressed with how fluidly Parker was running routes and getting open before he hurt his shoulder. It was a good move for Odom.
I saw Bazelak in person for the first time at the spring game and he's a lot bigger than I anticipated. Every bit of 6-4, 200-plus. He's put together. I wouldn't hand Robinson the job for 2020. The staff really likes Bazelak and they spent a hell of a lot more time recruiting him than they did Robinson. An open competition would be the healthiest thing for the program. Dooley gets some help from other staffers coaching quartebacks, but he knows what he's doing. This year is going to be different for him because he's got a much different kind of QB from Lock. But he was with the Cowboys for Dak Prescott's first two NFL seasons, so he's been in an offense with a QB who can make plays with his feet.
Hey, friends. That will be all for today. We'll do this again another time. Thanks
