My 'like' button has put some miles on today.
One of my favorite things about watching this team is when, a second or two after a play ends, you see a flurry of activity in the corner of the tv screen, like six yards downfield.Imagine trying to call an offense, much less start 6-0 when this is the offensive line you’re working with. Outside of Linderbaum, this is embarrassing. Britt started blocking air after he got destroyed .3 seconds into the play.
In another life…Kirk would have been an excellent mafia don. He has this incredible ability to just drop massive fucking bombs on people in this unassuming “oh gee, shucks, but if you protest I’m going to end your whole bloodline” sort of way.The "Scuba" and "Turtle" references are specific to the point I am almost certain he is referring to someone who worked under Franklin and is basically saying we know you do it and did it.
I seem to recall seeing a tweet that had those stats - something like 14 yards per play prior to an "injury", and 3 yards per play for all others.Someone needs to chart the plays with “injuries.” I’m guessing the difference in yardage between them is stunning
also, I’m convinced that this was in at least some part done to mitigate the home field (crowd) advantage
Connelly is one of the biggest sports dorks to ever exist.Sportswriters are dorks, sports "analytics" blogger guy is the absolute fucking worst
Not really. Maybe we gained more yardage because they had an injured guy on the field.If this is accurate, its damning.
But the fact Iowa has former Franklin assistants on staff should end the discussion entirely. They know. They know specifically and decisively.
He makes one hell of a slalom ski thoughConnelly is one of the biggest sports dorks to ever exist.
