If you're agreeing with me on the risk of shot gun formations, I was referring to the offense being at or inside its own 20, not the opponent's 20.

I love the shotgun in the red zone. The defense has to account for the QB if he's a run threat, which DG certainly is. ND did that well sometimes and sometimes not so well but DG scored twice on (1) a designed run play and (2) on an improvised run play.

I would have sent someone just to force Rees to go to his left. Whether you get to him or not it would have made him uncomfortable.

Listening to Sam Webb this morning -- Tim Settle didn't get an offer. Very very strange. I realize we wouldn't be favored to land the kid, but how do you not offer the #1 DT in the nation when he takes an unofficial visit to your school and he's buddies with a guy that you are favored to land?

On blitzing ..... I agree with that to an extent but I think we've seen solid play out of everyone who has played SS and FS, especially tackling.

Moreover, when Mattison blitzes, as I understand it, he relies more on excellent man coverage from his CBs than he does on rolling a S over. The Ss in Mattison's D, when he blitzes, appear to play center field to cut off a receiver that gets open down field and then makes a catch.


They've proven themselves more now, so we might see some more willingness maybe...

Did Burrell get an offer? Settle not being offered is indeed strange, unless an offer to him would have affected McDowell's or Hand's recruitment.

Does anyone know if the SEC powers are still giving only one year scholarships?

you can put yeast in whatever it is that you drink, hack. I prefer my ale to have a generous helping of hops

American microbrews can be completely awesome, but I'm anti-hops these days because that's what they are -- hops vehicles. I am rediscovering Germany. Need to take a break from the ridiculous-hops beers.

Too much hops for me right now. Octoberfest. I'd like to see the microbrews pay attention long enough to make a good and balanced Octoberfest. So few of them seem to focus on loagers.

Seriously, though, if you're looking for a good microbrewery lager, look here:

They're OK. No reason not to buy German though. Americans have outdone their ale ancestors, but can't beat their lager ones.

Great Lakes is my tried and true. Though, there is an awesome growler store just down the street with 50 beers on tap at all times. Always a good time to take my 3 or 4 --- or 5 growlers down and try some new beers.

On the recruiting front....USC trainwreck seems like it ought to put JuJu Smith legimately in play for lots of schools, including OSU and M. I had him as a virtual USC lock, but I'm not so sure any more.
