  • Re: Julius Irvin, 4* 2018 DB, Anaheim (Servite), CA (Offered)

    I remember Papa Irving raving about the UW coaches in the Summer. Has this all been a ploy for USC attention?

    It really is frustrating that these high end players don’t realize how low risk of a decision UW is. The worst case scenario is you go 9-4 under Pete.

    They will get good coaching. The program is organized. The coaches care about the players and stay on them. The rules are consistent. Other schools are playing Victor and keeping Peters on the team. UW is a good school. Pete puts guys in the NFL. Fan base could be better, but is best in the PAC 12. Seattle is a real city.

    I know that last paragraph is doogish, but it’s true. Kids are dumb and that’s fine, but parents and high school coaches should understand and consider some of this, especially the ones not getting money under the table. I can’t fault kids and their families for that.

  • Re: Stacking Classes, Building Depth

    I’m going to make a drunken, bold Pumpy prediction that Otton moves to D. Throw him in the mix at Buck/Sam.

    He probably won’t tho because he’s likely a more willing blocker than Bryant and he will certainly be a better one than Culp will initially be.

    Since I hedged my bet, I’ll be right either way.
    Just what we need. Another white guy trying to rush the QB. Should we move our slowest offensive line recruit MJ Ale to DT as well?

    Otton is the next great white TE for us. Will maul people when he is blocking and be a good safety valve for the QB.
    I’m not sure if he will be big/strong enough. I would lean towards yes because most kid’s with his football lineage are obsessed.

    That said, Kizer has already dabbled as a WTE. Bryant was already out 2nd best WR, and Culp could be 6’6” 255 with both WTE and BTE skills.

  • Re: For Those Who Actually Watch Film

    The question for me with instincts is why are they bad. Are they bad because you just haven't gotten enough reps? Are they bad because you aren't getting good coaching? Or are they bad because you're a mental midget and things just don't click for you?

    If it's either of the first 2, you can overcome them with time in the program and potentially be a contributor at some point. If it's the mental midget side of things, then the odds of it ever clicking is about zero and you're destined to be one of those athletes that lucks into a few plays but always leaves you massively underwhelmed.

    In a normal situation, if you're in the UW program, that kind of player will almost always get passed at some point by our typical recruit.
    Instincts and football IQ are so fucking underrated in scouting. They can be improved, but for the most part, they are what they are.

    You’re an IMA legend, so I’ll give you a hoops comparison. Guys with court vision, that understand floor spacing, and are consistently in good help side defensive positioning are valuable. Most guys have it or don’t.

    In football, guys that time their blitzes, disguise coverages, anticipate and avoid blocks

    We need guys with both instincts and talent. It’s easier said than done. I think both Pete and coach K are such good coaches they know they can win with guys like BBK and Myles Bryant. Both those guys are very smart football players.

    Ultimately, if we want to win a natty, we are going to play Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson type teams. BBK is probably as instinctual of a player as Rueben Foster. We all know what the difference is.

    I don’t always agree with Dennis, but he’s 100% right that we need more talent. We have the coaching. We need more talent and a NFL type at QB. That’s the formula for UW.
