SteelersDepot does good film evaluation of Joejuan Williams

SteelersDepot projects Joejuan as a second-day pick. (That means Rounds 2-3, I think.) You will enjoy watching these film highlights of Williams, even though he gets beat on some of them.

Re: Vaughn is a star

I am still a little burned that one of the most sensational performances by a RB in VU history (vs. Baylor) was marred by a total no-show performance by a VU defense.

Re: Statistical ranking review of 2018 season

Thanks for this. In just a few words: Defense and placekicking were the glaring weak spots; offense was improved, explosive at times, but inconsistent on third down and in the red zone; and special teams were just average. We had all really hoped Tarver's presence would make more of a difference. Fo...

Re: Ole Miss vacates 33 wins

Athletics Director Ross Bjork was quoted as commenting, "In a way it’s just a piece of paper, because you saw those games."

Re: Ole Miss vacates 33 wins

The 2013 game was the season opener where VU had them beat, but Jeff Scott made a 75-yard run with a minute left to take the lead back. If Vandy had won that game... - It would have been Vandy's eighth straight win going back to the previous season. - Vandy would have finished 9-3, 6-2 in the SEC in...

Re: OT?: Pep Hamilton leaving Michigan staff

Back in January 2014 in the Mason coaching search, CBS's Bruce Feldman tweeted that Hamilton was offered the Vandy job and that the university had a plane ready to pick him up, but he declined at the last minute and decided to stay on as Colts OC. This according to Feldman's "sources"... https://twi...

Re: OT?: Pep Hamilton leaving Michigan staff

This shouldn't surprise anyone. He's been pretty much the top rumored candidate all along. I'm sure everyone will have opinions about whether it's a good hire or not. I'll certainly take it. If you've served for three years as an OC for an NFL team, it can't be that you don't know what you're doing....

Re: names being tossed around

I predict... We will hear something within a day or two after signing day. If an OC or assistant coach jumps ship with just days to go before signing day, it could really throw a monkey wrench into recruiting for the school he's leaving. Last year it seems like just a day or two after signing day th...

Recruiting: Mimms de-commits from VU

Indianapolis RB Delbert Mimms did not sign on the December signing period, and has now opened up his recruitment, according to a tweet. An SDS writer says that the loss of Ludwig may have been a big factor.

My Spidey-senses kind of told me last fall something like this was going to happen, even though I had nothing to base it on. I don't know what's behind it, but Ludwig (A) is losing a trusted senior QB, (B) has been kind of a nomad and has never stayed in one place too long, and (C) is hopping into o...
