Will Mr. Irby be eligible to play at oSu for 3 years?
Looks like this is a very versatile player. He played and can play well at DE, TE, SE, and even MLB?
love his quickness and closing speed to the ball carriers.
Maybe we will play him right away rotating on 3rd and long downs. At 6-4 280 he is between a DE and a DT size wise. Passing down DT is suitable for him now.
In a year or two, hope he grow into a 300 lb terror at DT.
Welcome to oSu.
I really like this pick-up. We have a lot of young DT bodies on campus right, so we can afford to get project DT like this to groom within 2 years or so. Will bulk and prime up during Redshirt Sophomore year as a 300 lb DT then.
We made wrong assessments, We thought Mississippi State was tough and K-State was tougher and we were the toughest team when we dominated K-State at both LOS.
.....and were thought we were ready to run over the wimpy Texas Tech.
Back to the drawing board!
I am not too sure people respect that SS can spread the D all over the field. Corndog was not accurate and often overthrew the receivers, BUT SS under-threw the receivers and often time wide open receivers had to wait for his hanging ball to arrive?
If I am the D coach, I dare SS beat me with...
The first fumble looks like a designed to begin with. 2 OLs left the tacker that caused the fumble and run downfield for further blocking. ....and SS run into the would be tackler? didn't protect the football and fumbled deep inside our territory.
Poor decision and careless in holding onto the...
4* Bobby Reid was replaced by a 3* Zac Robinson who was actually a QB/WR recruit.
That was when we actually celebrate a running QB and threw to only ONE outstanding WR, before Dana Holgerson came over to teach us how to distribute the football to all the other receivers.
Now after we have seen...
Our best QBs has been and will always be the ones that:
1. Read the D well.
2. Audible the O formations and plays
3. Anticipate plays
4. Stand tall in the pocket and see and scan the playing field.
5. Protect the football!
6. Side steps quickly to elude pass rush to extend plays
7. Have speed to...
OL is still a work in progress. TT had a K-State tape to explore and a week to practice while oSu OL we celebrating the K-State success.
Football games are about eagerness, hunger, preparations, executions and momentum feeders.
It all depends on how you prepare for the game and how the opponent prepare against you.
We all agreed to run over Tech, they were prepared for that.
They knew our QB didn't see the field well, they prepared for that. we didn't.
