    Heath Tulu & Austin have all been consistent playmakers.
    I've heard this during the preseason the past two years. Then almost nothing from Williams during the season.

    Not hating on him or anything. I hope it carries over into the actual season. I would love to see him play a major role for us. We need someone like him to step up and blow up this year.

    I'm also not attacking your info. I believe he is a playmaker in practice. Just yet to see it in a game.

    He's not athletic enough to get open consistently against SEC defenses. Or at least, not in Moorhead's offense. Leach's offense should be the exact opposite and make it easier for him, so maybe it'll be a different story this year.

    What site do you use?

    Apparently no one was athletic enough to get open in Moorhead's offense. And if by chance they did get open the ball wasn't thrown to them. And if the stars aligned and they were open and the ball was thrown to them they were often so surprised that they usually weren't ready to catch it. All things that will be different this year based on scheme, practice, QB play and just the general philosophy of the offense.

    This and they had to be doing advanced physics to figure out their route while they were running said route.

    Yeah after I posted that I started wondering how much of a crutch Moorhead's offense was for everyone.

    OUR OFFENSE SUXED AND MADE THE DEFENSE STAY ON THE FIELD TOO LONG. MOST OF THE TIME DEFENDING A SHORT FIELD. A GOOD OFFENSE WILL HELP A GAMBLING DEFENSE. A BEND BUT DON'T BREAK D--NOT GOOD FOR A ML TEAM.

    It also really didn't help when the OCs figured out Joe Lee's secret: He left the TE uncovered.

    Ah yes, how could I forget? Seems like 2-3 time a game someone near me would drunkenly yell "Why is the GD Tight End always open!!?!?!?!"

    ETA: My sources are now telling me that that was me drunkenly yelling, not random fans around me.

    Funny because I have told several to shut up when they continue to use that language. Everyone slips up but to do it continuing is uncalled for. It is a family event.

    I forget which team it was (Florida, IIRC) but in 2001 we made their TE look like an All American that day. It was sickening. Spurrier made Joe Lee cover that TE. Then Rex Grossman went to town on our ass through the air.

    This has always been interesting to me because I have slipped up and done it before, but usually I'll apologize if I'm not around people I know, especially if there's young children around. However, I've seen people who will be repeatedly told to tone it down and it's like it's a trigger for them to turn it up another notch.

    Or when LSU figured out that he would keep playing LB's 8yds off the ball when they went to a power I and erased a 14 point deficit in the 4th quarter without throwing a pass.

    From what I've heard so far, I'd like to think there's a lot more structure and nuance to Arnett's scheme than Joe Lee's. Or, some semblance of structure and nuance at all.

    It's amazing how your perspective changes as a fan when you go from drunken student, to drunken young alum, to sober Dad with his kids in the stands.....

    I am really a nice guy to everyone, I make friends easy. However I am a big guy and have a very mean look on my face. They usually shut up when I ask.

    Acting a complete drunken ass at football games are some of the more embarrassing memories I wish I could take back from my 20s. Now I just stick to being an ass on the internet.

    I wasn't bad at football. Basketball was another story, I was an awful basketball fan. Former Brave Bruce Benedict was a particular target of my vitriol. He was a terrible high school ref back in the late 80's/early 90's before he became a terrible college ref. We once threw baseball cards at him when he made a particularly bad call. He was not amused.
