[quote]My heart says Fed in 4, but my head says Nadal in 4. Hope I'm wrong. [/quote] same here with the caveat that if Fed just kills it in his service game then he can take it. He needs to crank the ace number high on this fast court to take some easy games. Damn you Australia for being 17 ...

re: Unofficial 2017 Australian Open Thread. - OrangeBlood
Not a lot of WTA players I can think of that I really like at the moment. The hot ones? :lol: My only issue with Fed (who is probably one of my all time favorite players) is that he doesn't seem to give enough credit to his opponent when he losses. I think that's a bit of being the competitor...

re: Tulsa scored most points against OU in 2015...Gilbert was Tulsa's OC...video - OrangeBlood
I'm not saying Gilbert wouldn't be a good hire, and I've mentioned this on another thread, but he was the OC in name only there. Philip Montgomery called the plays (was HC, came from being OC at Baylor under Briles). I'm sure Gilbert had input on play scheme etc. but it was Montgomery's show there...

re: Those that have Gilbert in your top 3 for OC - OrangeBlood
[quote]What about looking at his playcalling when he was at Tulsa in 2015? Here is a link to the Tulsa/OU game in early 2015...also includes plays from other games that season. [/quote] I'm almost positive Gilbert did not call plays at Tulsa. I believe it was Philip Montgomery (OC under Briles...

re: Sterlin Gilbert must be highly thought of in coaching circles... - OrangeBlood
[quote]he may have been told to do that[/quote] I'm pretty sure that's right. It was puzzling how they used it incorrectly and then put it away for good (even when circumstances called for it). Never saw it after it was stopped late in the Tech game on 3/4 down. But it was so predictable at th...

re: Sterlin Gilbert must be highly thought of in coaching circles... - OrangeBlood
Gilbert's biggest weakness is play calling. First year doing it and it showed, especially late in games and late in the year once it was clear that the FR QB was injured and couldn't throw a deep ball to keep Ds honest. But he did a great job with the offense this year for the most part. I don'...

re: Racism at UTx (white coaches vs. black coaches) - OrangeBlood
[quote]Clint Hurtt.[/quote] No doubt. He didn't have him specifically, and also, no one like him in his initial staff at Texas. And by "like him" I mean a good recruiter. Chris Vaughn was probably the best (then busted for previous actions at Ole Miss). No one on the offensive side of the bal...

re: Racism at UTx (white coaches vs. black coaches) - OrangeBlood
[quote]Here is what I don't get. Strong is a good coach. He was an excellent DC at Florida and very good at Louisville as a head coach. Texas has been a dumpster fire since they lost to Bama in the BCS championship game. Could the problem be more Texas than the Head Coach of Texas? [/quote] I've...

re: Art Briles Offense - OrangeBlood
It's a great offense that is predicated on smash mouth up-the-gut running. Hence the "veer" part of "veer and shoot." Baylor has run the ball quite well - and part of the reason is that the defense has to account for both dimensions of the field with the threat of the passing game - vertical and h...

[quote]And what's the rest of the story. No one knows. Maybe the AD said don't worry about it I'll take care of it. Belies says ok and goes about his business thinking that the AD would report it. It does seem slimy. But if Briles truly covered it up he would have been arrested.[/quote] Whoev...
