re: Top 5 players for NCAA football - Gountiss
[quote]Baker has elite athleticism but he's a 5'10" 176 safety and hasn't shown that he has Tyrann Mathieu instincts, which is the only way he could be a top 5 player. Likewise, UW's front seven is not going to do the secondary any favors. [/quote] I don't really think their is a Honey Badger c...

re: App St: "Check your white privilege" - Gountiss
[quote] I have a family member at App St. It's a typical left wing college.[/quote] Boone itself is a very liberal town, but the student body is probably 60-40 conservative since most of the students come from the Charlotte area. Wataugua county actually went red in the 2012 presidential electio...

re: Is Duke/UNC the best rivalry in American Sports? - Gountiss
[quote]Just how close the schools are make them hate each other. [/quote] Eh, I just don't think it's really that fierce. I could walk through Franklin Street with a Duke shirt on and it's not that big of a deal. Can't say the same if I wear a Virginia Tech shirt and walk through Morgantown. P...

re: What defense does Virginia basketball run? - Gountiss
It's called Packline. Incredibly hard to score down low. If you can't hit threes from the top of the arc, you won't score much. I'm not a basketball expert so someone correct me if I'm wrong...

re: Evidence continues to build Eagles will trade up for Mariota - Gountiss
[quote]So unless Kelly is staying for the next decade this move could really set this franchise back if it backfires[/quote] The Offensive line is a dream for a coach with a zone blocking scheme. Throw in LeSean McCoy and that's a very ground game. (When they use it and don't chuck the ball 50 ...

re: Evidence continues to build Eagles will trade up for Mariota - Gountiss
I seriously doubt this will happen. I could see Philly going with a Brett Hundley in the second but I don't think any NFL team would consider moving up from 20 to 2 unless the trade was stealing...

re: Bruce Arians rips spread offense QBs: I don't even consider it quarterbacking - Gountiss
The issue is less about the system and more about the tempo. With HUNH, defenses have to stay base and play more man/ read-zone which makes it easier to throw because the coverage is the same on every play. This enables a QB to find the weak link, such as a 250 lb linebacker covering a speedy slot...

re: Bud Foster to A&M? - Gountiss
Do any Aggies here know if any of y'alls defensive staff was retained? If Foster were to go, he'd probably want to take his D-Line coach Wiles. (Great coach, average recruiter with few Southern ties) I would assume Beamer would promote Torian Gray to DC if Bud were to leave. He's been DBs coach ...

re: Would you let your kids play football? Lebron says no. - Gountiss
I'm not a doctor or anything, but I've spent plenty of time around football at all levels from Pop Warner to College ball. The problem with concussions at the young age has more to do with the weight of the helmet rather than the helmet construction. My high school I attended has every kid outfitt...

re: Virginia Tech - can they run the table? - Gountiss
Depends on a few factors. This team is really young. Not Tennessee young, but Freshman and Redshirt Freshman make up almost 50% of the 2 deep. The biggest factor for me is the health of the dline as the season progresses. Starters look fine, but their is a noticeable drop off from the first and ...

re: Anyone have the scroop on Virginia Tech? - Gountiss
Well, from the Hokie side, I don't really know what to expect. Ohio State can be penciled in as a lost with the toss ups being ECU, @UNC, @Pitt, Miami, @Duke. Defense should be fine while I believe the offense will be a continuation of the muddled mess that we've thrown out on the field for th...
