@DMoney (correction) spot on about 2020 OT Brady Ward's Army All American performance. The young man was getting abused in the few highlights released. An yes the one on one drill does slightly favor the defender.

DMONEY you were spot on in the podcast.

Go Canes

@DMoney come on now brother, that was such a fluff piece about 2020 OT Brady Ward's Army All American performance. The young man was getting abused in the few highlights released. An yes the one on one drill does slightly favor the defender. Other than the Ward part you were spot on in the podcast.
Paranos you may have misheard me. I said Ward looked really bad at AAA and wasn't crazy about the offer.

Your right my bad, I was listening while multitasking this morning. I blended in the part about Ward being looked at by Ark an how their new HC is a good evaluator of Oline talent.

Disagree about the ZBS run game take. Miami's backs belong in a gap/power scheme.

Knighton doesn't have the patience and vision to execute the reads and cutbacks that are required for that scheme. He's explosive and fast and he wants to bounce every run outside.

Chaney played in a scheme that defined clear running lanes so he doesn't have experience making those types of reads and decisions either. I also haven't seen him display the skills to make sharp cuts in a phone booth like you need to when you are reading blocks and defenders' leverage behind the line of scrimmage.

Cam Harris is expected to be the starter and he's been inconsistent with his reads. He's got some hip stiffness with his square build and his strengths are contact balance and physicality. He belongs in a gap scheme.

If Lingard returns he's another straight-linish gap scheme track runner.

The OL isn't gonna move bodies but at least in a gap scheme their assignments are more clearly defined and they can be aggressive. Put them in a scheme that requires precise footwork and cohesiveness working together and we will see more of the same passivity (1st step sideways promotes this) and mental errors. The key is to have enough window dressing and line pulls to create a #s advantage at the point of attack.

Also this is why I've maintained Parrish is a must-get in this class...he brings a totally different element than the other backs on the roster with his inside running skills including mental processing, agility, contact balance, etc. He can be a ZBS feature back and execute gap scheme as well. But I get that most of the porsters on here can't comprehend nuance like that and they have a myopic understanding of football where Knighton and Chaney are faster and higher rated therefore they are simply better regardless of scheme or context.

I’m a huge Parrish fan and agree that he can flourish in any scheme. Regarding gap scheme vs. zone, Dallas was the guy who really fit the gap scheme IMO although he can also excel in both. I see Knighton as a decisive one-cut guy in the Steve Slaton mold. Chaney is a bit of blank slate coming from the Wing-T but his acceleration plays up in a ZBS. I also have some concerns about his physicality on gap-scheme runs. Obviously, this rep is not full contact but his upfield explosion jumps off the screen:

 
This podcast was interesting, you both said enos was not a fit because of a few things one more importantly was that his system was very completed and “these are colleges students with school to do” does that mean the QB play was result of that? Do we think jarren would be better with a more simple playbook? Curious
 
I want to see a professional coaching staff, on the same page as each other, delivering the goods in terms of scheme, game plan, play calling and in-game adjustments, as well as motivation and preparation and S&C. Do that, and recruit urgently but professionally, with a plan. Oh, and Epstein didn’t kill himself.
 
Can I get the cliff notes dog cause I can't listen to sunshine pumping about our recruits and change.
