  1. Past hour
  2. That is a safe bet because their roster barely has any RBs on it. If they draft a RB in the first 3 or 4 rounds, Flowers could be at risk, but, anything later than that, and that will say a lot about where he stands in the eyes of the team. He obviously wasn't ready to play in the NFL last season, but you can stash a player on a practice squad if no one else has a clue as to what he can do. Especially since they have virtually no film and he switched positions. I believe in QF and his drive. The guy has overcome so much adversity, including a mediocre coaching staff while at USF. He is going to make it to the big show.
  3. Tyrik Jones (another player prediction) shall wreck havoc when he arrives. B/W him, a bulked up Livingstone, Greg Reaves we should be straight this year on the edge. I also feel some of the younger guys will step up. As for Linebacker - I think the group we currently have and the grad transfer will surprise. I also like the 2 freshman we have coming in.
  4. I would think so, otherwise he probably would have hired an agent......he still has some growing to do and the feedback that he gets from the process will be great for him, and hopefully for us next year.
  5. Today
  6. That about describes it. Anyone want to tell Tom Hanks who our new coach is and why is he legitimate?
  7. Pitchers Austin Adams: Austin was recently on the Washington Nationals roster but was optioned back down to the minors today. In his short three day stint with the big league club, Adams pitched 1 inning, allowed 1 run on 0 hits and 2 walks. While pitching in triple A, Adams has pitched in 5 games, worked 6 innings, allowed 0 runs on 1 hit and 1 walk while striking out 12. He has collected 1 save while posting a 0-0 record. He currently pitches for the Fresno Grizzlies, the class AAA affiliate of the Nationals. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=613534#/career/R/pitching/2019/ALL Kevin Quackenbush: Kevin has been generally solid this season as most of his 6.10 ERA can be attributed to one game in which he allowed 4 of his 7 ER. On the season he has posted a 1-1 record with no saves over 8 games. he has pitched 10.1 innings, allowed 10 hits and 3 walks while striking out 14. he currently plays for the oklahoma City Dodgers, the Class AAA affiliate of the Dodgers. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=534812#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Jimmy Herget: At 25 years old, Jimmy Herget is on the edge of the prospect scale. The right-handed reliever has drawn comparisons to Steve Cishek for his sidewinder delivery and fastball/slider approach. He's struck out nine without allowing an earned run in six innings of work this season at Triple-A, and he's now logged 98 innings at the level. There are still some questions about his command, but he's ready to help a Cincinnati Reds bullpen that has been a bit shaky to start the year with six losses and three blown saves. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2830795-each-mlb-teams-prospect-who-could-help-right-away-in-2019#slide7 This article is about prospect who could help their team right away. He appears to be close to a call up if he can be a little better with command. He currently plays for the Louisville Bats, the class AAA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. On the season Jimmy has Pitched in 8 innings over 9 games allowing 4 runs (3 Earned) on 6 hits and 9 walks (intentional). He has also struck out 12 http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?player_id=623474#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Tommy Eveld: Eveld had a rough start to the season but has cleaned it up lately, he also could see a call up this season as the Marlins begin to make moves. He is currently plays for the New Orleans Baby Cakes, the Class AAA affiliate of the Marlins. On the season Tommy pitched 9.2 innings over 7 games, allowed 8 runs (6 Earned) on 9 hits and 4 walks while striking out 9. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?player_id=669746#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Ryan Valdez: Ryan has found some success to start the year going 1-0 with no saves working as reliever but has allowed no runs and only four hits . He has walked 5 batters over the course of his 8.1 innings pitched while striking out 6. He is currently playing for the Bradenton Marauders, the class A(advanced) affiliate of the Pirates. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=676964#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Phoenix Sanders: Phoenix has been solid this season allowing runs on 7 hits, 7 walks(four in one game), and 10 strikeouts over 9.0 innings pitched this season. He is 1-0 with no saves working primarily out of the bullpen while he does have one start. He is currently pitching for the Montgomery Biscuits, the AA affiliate of the Rays http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=676637#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Joe Cavallaro: Joe has struggled this season and will need to turn things around. In three appearances he has logged 3.1 innings but allowed 8 runs on ten hits and 2 walks, while striking out five. Its would appear he is catching to much of the plate. All of his appearances came as a member of the St. Lucie Mets, the class A(advanced) affiliate of the mets but he currently plays for the Brooklyn Cyclones, the class A(short) affiliate of the Mets. He was moved on April 12. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=676860#/career/R/pitching/2018/ALL Shane McClanahan: Shane McClanahan had a rough outing in Bowling Green’s 8-3 loss to Great Lakes. In five innings, he walked four batters, including three in the four-run second inning. The Loons made him pay with a pair of run-scoring extra-base hits. The Hot Rods scored the next three runs, but Great Lakes put the game away with another four-run inning in the seventh. LHP Shane McClanahan: 5 IP, 2 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 6 K (4.70) Bowling Green’s site offers this recap. On the year Shane has a 1-2 record over four starts and 15.1 Innings. He has allow 8 ER on 12 hits and 11 walks while striking out 21 48 strikes on 87 pitches. He's gotta break this trend. He currently pitches for the Bowling Green Hot Rods, the class A (full) affiliate of the Rays https://www.draysbay.com/2019/4/21/18509299/rays-prospects-minor-leagues-april-21-2019-ricardo-wong http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?player_id=663556#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Peter Strzlecki: Pistol has pitched in five games, working 6 innings with 1 save and 0 runs allowed on 4 hits and 1 walk, while striking out 5. it's a little disheartening though to see Palm Beach State listed as his school on his team profile as he plays for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. the class A(full) affiliate of the Brewers. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=657265#/gamelogs/R/pitching/2019/MINORS Andrew Perez: AP has been good in relief this season only allowing 2 runs (1 Earned) so far.

He has also stolen four bases while being caught only once. He currently plays for the Midland Rockhounds, the class AA affiliate of the A's http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=656736#/gamelogs/R/hitting/2019/MINORS David Villar: Villar has struggled a bit to start the season hitting just .208 to start the campaign and only .189 over his last ten games. hopefully his power numbers will improve moving forward as well as he has added only two extra base hits for the San Jose Giants, the Class A (advanced) affiliate of the Giants http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?player_id=681584#/career/R/hitting/2019/ALL Coco Montes: Coco Started slow but has picked up recently. He is hitting .246 on the year but .273 over his last ten games. He has belted three doubles and a triple so far this season for the Asheville Tourists, the class A (Full) affiliate of the Rockies. If I missed anyone please add them.
  8. Exactly, and a guy they invest a draft pick in would make the roster over Q unless Q blows him out of the water in camp. If its close to equal they will keep the younger guy who they invested a pick on.
  9. That's right up there with betting CCS was going to try and add a few more players to the roster through transfers.
  10. Not that risky a bet as almost every (I was going to say every, but there might be one or two exceptions) team in the league will add an RB or two, either through the draft or FA before camp.
  11. It's all about the pass rush off the edge and the LB play. I don't feel super confident about either one of those right out of the gate. I think the secondary will be better just because they have a legitimate coach now (they were young as a unit too) and the DT's should be much better because The oldest guys in the 4 man rotation last season are just now juniors and all have flashed some talent. None of this matters if we can set the edge against the run, rush the passer from the end spot, and have LB's that can shed blocks and make tackles.
  12. And to add - it certainly doesn't mean we can't have both. Athletic success can happen quickly (recruit the right players, get the right coaches in place, etc). While I would think rising on the Academic side is more of a longer term process and commitment - something we should definitely be proud of.
  13. yep. very wishful thinking. The Bengals were so sure that Q was so good that they stashed him on the PS which opened him up to any team picking him up, they also had open practices for all of training camp. They must have limited his touches there for that reason. All this for a guy that will have his work cut out for him to make the roster this year. I would bet my house the Bengals pick up a RB in the draft or a vet FA before camp.
  14. This was a pretty heralded 2015 recruiting class. https://d1baseball.com/analysis/d1baseballs-2015-top-25-recruiting-classes/ https://www.perfectgame.org/rankings/Recruiting/Rankings.aspx
  15. Zech wasn't a JUCO. He was a freshman in that class.
  16. Not an obsession at all. Just an observation. We blamed them for delusions of grandeur, but their rise is noteworthy. If you go back and look at the series between the two schools from the start, you'll see that USF dominated most sports for years, but that is no longer the case. We've stood still to a degree. They've risen. It happened. USF's rise on the academic side is just as - probably moreso - noteworthy. Seems to just be a difference of philosophy. They have BCS bowl wins. We have academic Pre-eminence.
  17. I appreciate your confidence in Q but he is still a long shot at best to make the playing roster. A lot will depend on who Cincy selects in the draft and brings in as a free agent. Assuming they were hiding him last year is unlikely since he was a free agent and the Cincy franchise is not that smart. I hope the kid makes the team but I would give him a 30% at best. The beauty of this is time will tell.
  18. Uhhh....your opinion. They gave him extremely limited touches and then put him on the practice squad. It is not unheard of for teams to take a player they see as a project (with a high ceiling) and limit their reps in the preseason to stash them away on the practice squad. We will see what his workload looks like this season. I'm going to be bold and say that he makes the 53 man roster as the 3rd string RB. They will have some gadget plays designed specifically for him as well. Remember, they called him up the last week of the season (although he was inactive) which represented a nice little $21,000 bonus for Q. I have to believe that he was called up to reward his work on the practice squad all season.
  19. A lot went into the defense collapsing last season including starting a safety at LB. Too many first time starters and guys who just weren't ready to be every down players. I think we're much bigger and stronger up front and we not have a good amount of experience. I feel like they could resemble the 2017 as opposed to what we saw last season. Something to be said when guys get comfortable with what they're doing. I think they'll be some bumps but I think the defense will be formidable. I think in two years they'll be dominant. But next season I'm betting we see them getting better as the season goes on.
