Losing a star player to injury on special teams was painful. Losing a star
to injury due to an OSHA violation would be devastating.

Break the rock on the Rock
since we have a connection to DJ, we should invite him to the VT game and when we break the rock it should the Rock laying down on the floor with the rock on his chest!! Wait, perhaps his stunt double should do this dangerous duty.

Just because the play succeeded, doesn't mean we weren't "prepared" for it
There's no one single play that's a Fake Punt. There's dozens of different ways to fake a punt, just like there's a thousand different plays you can run from any formation. Sometimes a play is just well-executed and succeeds despite your efforts on defense.

Seriously though, the way it breaks it doesn't seem like legit anything too structurally solid.

You want Nagy gone in not even 1.5 years? You're smarter than that.
I'm frustrated at Nagy as anyone. However, the over reactions have to stop. I've been slowly criticizing Mitch for the last month.

If you want to make an argument against Pace for picking Trubisky over Watson / Mahomes, I get that. However, the Nagy needs to go is way too premature.

They fought hard vs Clemson but Lawrence let them off the hook
Missed a TD and threw 2 picks (pick was same sequence as missing TD). Easily could have been 31-3 at half. Now Clemson is way better than we are and Lville will put up a fight but I expect to score points on this Lville team.

That award means little for an HC with an OC background who had
the most dominating defense. The D scored 6 TDs last year. The O ranked in the 25-30 range last year for most of their stats. The D won him the coach of the year not his playcalling.

His play calling sucks and Turbisky is just exposing it even more....both guys should be gone with Pace......

Lets see if Chucky P is going to adapt his schemes and playcalling - second game in a row the opposing team decided to take Mack out of the game and it worked with success. No scheme changes or anyone stepping up when he gets double and tripled teamed!!

The lack of pace clearly is a problem on the back line.
The 2009 NC we ran that 4-1-4-1 with the pushing full having blazing recovery speed. Many time he actually ran past our defenders to catch and attacker. We dont have than now.

D1 Baseball Fall Report on the Hoos
D1 Baseball posted their fall report on the Hoos today. It's a subscription piece so here are the players mentioned and a quick summary...

Zack Gelof: High end talent that put on 8 pound of muscle. Expect homer total to grow from 5 to double digits.

Brendan Rivoli: Hitting machine with strength in compact, left handed swing. Also potential for homer totals to increase from 5 to double digits. Likely to play LF or DH but could catch in a pinch.

Alex Tappen: Prime bounceback candidate after sophomore slump that finished with .642 OPS. Candidate for 1B, RF, DH. Was injured last part of 2019 season.

Devin Ortiz: One of six best pitchers on staff per Oak. Had monster summer and gained a lot of confidence at plate. Carried over to fall. Pitched a lot during summer so resting arm during fall. Has 3 quality pitches on the mound.

Nic Kent: Sore arm limits him to DH this fall but odds on favorite to replace Morris at SS. Gained strength in offseason. Ideal doubles swing for Davenport.

Walker Jenkins: MIF candidate with good hands, range, and instincts at short. JUCO transfer.

Max Cotier: Essentially the third Werman brother. High-energy scrapper with good bat handling skills and good defensive instincts. Surprising pop from the left size for his size (hit a homer in intra squad scrimmage). You can tell from the quotes that Oak loves him already.

Chris Newell: Think Derek Fisher. Even hit some with Fisher over the offseason. Almost certain to start in CF. Has the look of the OFs on our CWS teams.

Marc Lebreux: JUCO transfer. Lefty bat. Can play any OF spot. Grinds out at bats. Good defensive instincts. Possible to probable OF starter.

Logan Michaels: Handles staff well. Good receiver and blocker. Offense surprised last season. (Karl's note: offense carried over to summer baseball as well).

Tate Ballestero: Switch hitting first year catcher. Exciting offensive upside. Aaron Fitt says he's an ideal 10th man. Oak really likes him. Sees him at C or 1B in future. Oak expects a big impact in the program over his career.

Griff McGarry: Has been touching 94 and 95 this fall per Oak. Was 90-93 versus ECU when Fitt was watching. Command has been really, really good this fall per Oak.

Mike Vasil: Got a late start this fall per Oak. His inning against ECU was only his 4th all fall. Stuff is there but he must harness it. Been missing high this fall.

Chesdin Harrington: Expected to challenge for third weekend spot to go along with McGarry and Vasil. Was our best pitcher at end of 2019 per Oak. Veteran presence on this team a big plus. Doesn't wow you with stuff but really knows how to pitch and has advanced feel for swing and miss slider.

Evan Sperling: Was only 88-89 versus ECU. But has made changes to delivery that Oak really likes. Pitching more like his junior season that finished with 3.64 ERA before injury cut that short.

Andrew Abbot: Not pitching this fall due to spring and Team USA workload. Quick twitch athlete with live fastball. Three quality pitches would normally make him a potential starter but invaluable in bullpen.

Kyle Whitten: Developing 90-92 fastball so that he's not an exclusive slider pitcher. Potential to be weapon in really good UVA bullpen.

Paul Kosanovich: Strong bodied innings eater in middle of bullpen. Can throw 4 pitches for strikes. Should team with Abbott, Whitten, and Ortiz to form one of ACC's best bullpens.

Cristian Sanchez: Lanky and loose. Fitt liked what he saw from Sanchez. 90-93 fastball, nice curve, developing change. Has gained a lot of confidence this fall and ready to contribute in 2020.

Zach Messinger: Didn't have good day against ECU when Fitt was there. Has good angle and extension. 3 pitches. Fastball was only 86-88 but had riding life up in zone. Has a quality change and a looping breaking ball that needs refinement.

Stephen Schoch: Known quality and quantity from days at UMBC and on the Cape. Great grad trasnfer pick up. Sidewinder delivery. 87-89 fastball with good slider.

Klye Petri: Big bodied lefty. Univ of Chicago transfer. 87-90 fastball from 3/4 arm slot. Effective, sweeping breaking ball. Second to Abbott as key lefty on staff. (He must be eligible to play this year).

Jacob Hodorvich: Didn't pitch vs ECU when Fitt was there. But has been 88-92 with fastball. Promising curve.

Matt Wyatt: Top first year arm per Oak. Velocity 93-94 this fall. Has a slider and change. Lanky with 3/4 arm action and projectable. Can take on serious innings already. Starter material but going to be used in bullpen. You can tell Oak really likes him. Calls him special and says he's going to make a big impact.

In summary from Oak...

“I feel good about it. I like the approach that they’ve had this fall,” O’Connor said. “I haven’t felt like there’s been a lot of guys we’ve had to motivate to play the right way and play hard. I think their approach has been pretty good.

“I like what we’re doing. I like where we’re at.”
