Hope for the future

Check out Jordan Davis’ good work on this play last Saturday:

That’s one way to make an inside linebacker’s job easier.

    That’s a grown man play. Do that a few times early Sat afternoon to set the tone for who owns the LOS.

    30 still whips a pulling guard to make the play.

    Everybody up front looks good on that play.

    Just goes to show, its not really about the play call. It’s about winning the LOS.

    Their left guard has to get push on 30 and their RB has to make 3 miss or that play’s not going anywhere.

    Jordan looks like a good 2-gap NG for a couple of years.

  3. I’ll 2nd that comment about 30. I think he and Monty are the two that should be starting.

    What’s so remarkable is that 99 gets too high and is still able to put the center on roller skates.

    I would much rather have a team of 3 stars like Jordan Davis who will work their butts (and in his case belly) off to get on the field than a bunch of superstars who feel they are entitled. Now if it is a bunch of 5 stars with Davis’s drive and work ethic, then you have a juggernaut of a team.

      Then Coach Paul Johnson has the team for you.

        No, I kind of have liked my DAWGS for the past 50 years. Kirby will not let the 5 stars come in and play “entitled”. They will have to work as hard as the others if they want to see the field. To see what talent w/o the work ethic looks like, see the catastrophe in Tallahassee. They have lots of talent, but they don’t seem to be pulling in the same direction. A good example of getting most out of lower level talent can be found in Ft Worth. TCU is never at the top of the recruit rankings, but almost every year they are in the hunt for the BIG 12 title(this year excluded). Gary Patterson can get a lot of mileage out of 3 and 4 stars while Big Brother Texas has been spinning it’s wheels with 5 star talent.

      I’m beginning to think that Davis was a 5 star in 3 star disguise.

        You can’t measure heart. Apparently Kirby and company saw that IF he would do the work and get in shape he would be something special. They must have believed that with the right motivation he would do it (and he has).

          You can’t measure heart, but you can measure height, weight, and strength, and Davis has all of those in spades. He’s done a great job of getting into shape, but this isn’t Rudy we’re talking about.

    Ben Cleveland’s health and the emergence of Jordan Davis are the two biggest factors going forward in my mind.

    Having an anchor in the middle and benching Natrez Patrick would help exponentially in stopping the run, and having Ben back and hopefully slotting Cade Mays at LG would reshuffle the interior OL.

    Still not convinced we can hang with Bama yet, but fix those two issues and it becomes a lot more hopeful.

    He did that a lot on Saturday and has steadily been improving. Rochester flat got whipped wayyyy too much. What I don’t understand is that Rochester as a True Freshman played much better.

    DL question: why didn’t Jay Hayes play on Saturday? The participation report showed that he did not get in the game, though he made the trip and was dressed out on the sidelines. At a time when it seems we need all hands on deck on the DL, his absence was surprising.

    Davis did a great job pushing his man back, but Crowder was the star. If Crowder and Davis can lock down their positions we’ll be in much better shape.

    1:28:40 Jordan blows up the center, hits Franks at the goal line, and Tyrique strips the ball.

    Beautiful.
