  1. I’m actually happy with the passing today. They just need to make more shots. I know that sounds simple but sometimes the solution is.
  2. Technically you are correct but I guarantee no prosecutor was up at 2 am drafting charging documents before a police report was even written, so he prolly hasn’t been “charged” yet other than police booking him in and turning in a PC statement.
  3. Yeah I’m not ready to say klubnik sucks after one drive. We know the other guy does. However, it’s clear Syracuse really wants to be the dumber team.
  4. He really doesn’t. 2 of their top 3 pass catchers are highly rated not freshman WRs. And all 3 of the top pass catchers are highly rated recruits. So all his points are incorrect. I guess we are about to find out with Klubnik in.
  5. Sure, and if it was just a couple guys I’d say you have a point. You’ve got a bunch of other 4 stars as well as those top guys I referenced. No way they all suck. Swinney made his career with WR development.
  6. You’re completely delusional as to what poor WR recruiting even is. I literally just gave you the National ranking to your WR room. 5 National top 20 players at their position. or maybe you’ll understand this…5 of the 22 highest rated players on your roster are WRs
  7. I’m just trying to imagine having guys that went #6, #9, #12, #13, and #17 WRs in their various recruiting classes on the roster and claiming the QB has no weapons to throw to. By comparison Texas has Hall and Worthy as the only guys anywhere near that level and then Whittington was a top rated athlete. I consider Texas to have an above average WR room and it isn’t near Clemson. Swinney is going to cause his program to shrivel and die between portal dumbassery and loyalty to a crappy QB.
  8. Man I didn’t realize I was on the Clemson board. Fuck those guys and go Syracuse. The QB still sucks ass and is who we thought he was. Probably throwing to the highest rated assortment of WRs in the country and consistently can’t do shit if they aren’t wide open.
  9. Yeah that’s good stuff. Shows Correa was fully bought in on Astros analytics approach to the game.
  10. I think he will run a good 40. His acceleration is pretty good for his size. I’m guessing low 4.5 or maybe even high 4.4. He only starts looking a little slower on his longer runs where the sprinter speed folks flourish. That isn’t him, but that’s okay.
  11. It’s a talented but young offensive line. They need the weight room to start moving those big bodies on run downs
  12. I feel like people are being overly negative because they don’t want to get hurt again. I saw some good things out of both sides of the ball. Both sides of the ball dominated the 2nd strings for stretches of the game. That’s what you want to see realistically. Other than that you can’t tell much except the game was fairly evenly matched. Could mean we suck, we are average, or show me a loss. I get it, going with we suck is the easiest because we have for so long and Sark hasn’t shown he can be anything more than average as a head coach. But it’s also a really lazy take based off this spring game.
  13. I’ll never forget when my first unit deployed to Iraq they wouldn’t let us off the plane in Budapest because they were hostile to American soldiers apparently. After flying that long flight we sat there on the plane over 2 hours before taking off for Kuwait. In all my back and forth travels after that, that was the only time that happened. I’ve always wondered if that was true or just something they made up. Sounded made up at the time, but maybe not. I was so pissed because we carried half our gear and weapons on that plane and were sandwiched like sardines. We just wanted to breath for a bit. They were just chartered commercial flights so it was super cramped. Fuck Budapest…
  14. I’ve been out over a decade so I would only be speculating. The Army was pretty behind on this topic though when I was in. We had a Naval Officer assigned to my unit to just help us jam cell phones, radio signals, garage door openers, etc. The Navy and Air Force have been playing this game a long time though so I’m sure grunts have something at this point. Hopefully.
  15. A squared away American Combined Arms unit wouldn’t need to flank a light infantry unit with anti-tank weaponry. Our thermal imagery would have seen them coming miles away in the open farmland of Ukraine. It would be a turkey shoot. Either Russia has the most undisciplined untrained troops in the world or Russia has been lying about their technology for decades. Drones are another issue. Those things are terrifying. Without air support all ground militaries are mostly sitting ducks to air attack assets. That’s why America invest so heavily in the military. It’s expensive stuff gaining air superiority the way our doctrine calls for.
  16. That’s why they are overrated IMO. They take so long to break down and move, once they fire, a single American Excalibur round is going to finish its killing days in a war with us. If Ukraine is using counter fires radar they can end Russia stupid fear weapons effectiveness easily. As soon as that first rocket fires they should have coordinates and let er rip back at them.
  17. Correct, but the MLRS stuff Russia has been using already is the same bad news for civilians. I guess this is kinda too war nerdy to waste this much energy on, but I think Russia PR for their gear is showing to be just that, PR. Even that huge thermobaric bomb they have is just a tiny dick response to the MOAB.
  18. I hear you, but I’m simply addressing it as some line in the sand or super weapon. I think using any artillery piece indiscriminately against a densely populated area wrong. Which I’m sure we all do. I just don’t get the comparison to nukes. It’s not even close.
  19. I don’t understand the thermobaric weapon freak out. Which news station is pushing this? We use thermobaric weapons too. The TOS-1 is just a suped up MLRS designed to bunker bust and clear trenches more effectively. As it defeats otherwise hardened targets by oxygen depletion. Russia tested one that was damn near nuke powerful but that isn’t a TOS-1. I don’t get it. It isn’t any more scary than many Russian weapons.
  20. That was for Russian RPG’s. It pretty much nuetralized them. Then they just switched to Vietnam era armor piercing hand grenades. Then it was explosively formed penatrator IEDs. There is always a way to kill a tank or armor. Then there is a countermeasure. I’d assume Ukraine and Russia will play this game of cat and mouse the longer this plays out. But it takes time to adjust tactics.
  21. Things aren’t fucked yet. Tech is missing wide open shots too. Which is keeping the game close and we can’t play much worse so I like our chances.
