After 48yrs., I can only sit back and laugh at the **** going on now.
Well...Since I really dont have a vote in the matter & cant change it anyway Im taking your word on it Dog...I expect a huge turnaround under the guiding hand of one Jim Caldwell.
I hope your right and history is wrong....That is to say Im pulling for the guy to succeed
Who has ever done well with Wake Forest?
We can only hope Dylan.
They have had some good ones that did well on either side of Caldwell...Jim Grobe followed Caldwell and had them playing tough as nails. The current Coach Clawson is not doing so bad either...So yea...Caldwell, not so much.
Maybe OC is his thing...guy should certainly have the experience part down by now. He has been coaching forever.
Jake Rudock. This is a big “who” moment for me.
I do vaguely remember him at UM, but nothing noteworthy.
**** yeah, please be our starter.
Ruddock was at ia for 2-3 years and got beat out by cj beathard. He takes the plays that are there, real smart guy, i think he was pre-med major, accurate short passer, played better under Harbaugh with um's skill players. Hes been better at Detroit than I expected him to be.
Time to order my custom Rudock jersey. Superbowl here we come!!!
The fact that he has a medocre arm is a big red flag. Here is a scouting report from 2016:
Adequate zip between the numbers, flashed ability to thread the neeHere is a scouting report dle between defenders in the short-intermediate game. Mechanics and footwork are mostly sound, very methodical drop back passer. Flashed the ability to drop throws in the bucket over the top. More accurate on touch throws, but generally places the ball well in the 10-15 yard range game. Pro-style experience working from under center. Significant improvement in his final season.
Light frame. Heavy feet in the pocket, not agile enough to evade many oncoming rushers. Velocity to the field side is average at best. Loads the ball up on vertical shots. Arm is nothing special. Will airmail posts and corners routes at times. Can get skittish under pressure, bad starts can ruin him. Not gonna make many throws outside the pocket or when a play breaks down. Still learning to throw with ideal timing and anticipation. Will stare down targets at times. Mental aspects of the game are raw.
Rudock is physically maxed out, but took big strides this year in his mastery of an offense and confidence from the pocket. There is enough in the toolset to be interested in Rudock’s development, but I didn’t see any outstanding characteristics that would get me excited. Jim Harbaugh did wonders with him at Michigan, but can an NFL coaching staff continue to cultivate his accuracy and ball placement? Rudock is very much a rhythm passer who can adequately operate an offense when the situation is right, but I don’t think he’ll ever be the guy to elevate his game under pressure.
Caldwell ain't a bad assistant. Hell seven as an NFL head coach he technically only has 2 losing seasons. He is boring but Matt Stafford was also at his best under him.
As for Rudock? I'll always hold him in high regard for his one year at Michigan.
Love these weak armed QBs that we bring in
he’s no Ryan Tannehill
I’m thinking more along the lines of Painter.
