Thoughts on Tommy Bush? Lots of 247 crystal ball predictions have gone to UT recently. Still think he will eventually choose Baylor?— Liam McColgan (@lmm13002) July 27, 2017
The way I interpret it is
Do you believe Baylor will have close calls in nonconference?...If so, who gives BU biggest challenge?— TheGrizz (@TheGrizzofBU) July 27, 2017
Duke could be tough. They have an outstanding basketball team with a Hall of Fame coach (yes, I still have heartburn from the refs stealing the 2010 Elite 8 win from us). On the football side it will be our first road game. I see it being a battle as Duke has a potential future NFL QB in Daniel Jones. It will definitely be a test for our D. But make no mistake on this one as
I plan on going to the game and giving you a recap with an On The Road With BNT article. No way will I miss CMR’s first road game.
OK, just for fun, call it right now--which bowl game does BU go to and who is the opponent? I'm picking Liberty Bowl vs Georgia— Mike McGown (@mikemcgown) July 27, 2017
Since I have gone on record saying that if we beat OU in the conference opener we will go 10-3, that could put us in the Alamo Bowl vs Oregon. Wouldn’t that be fun!
I keep reading that we don't have the kind of offensive players Rhule wants. What is the main diff he's looking for that we don't have?— Mike McGown (@mikemcgown) July 27, 2017
With CMR I doubt we will have 90-100 plays per game. We will see a more balanced offense between up tempo and ball control. Because of this change in philosophy, Rule prefers linemen who have good frames, are athletic, and mobile. Also, you’ll see our TE’s much more involved in the offense on the receiving end. Another strange sight for us BU fans will be the utilization of a fullback.
So which Big12 coach will be on the hot seat this year? I say Kliff Kingsbury. What say you? https://t.co/UXMz13mRgr— Poppy (@GeezerBear) July 27, 2017
As much as I would like for it to be the coach on the right, I’ll have to agree with you that it’s the one on the left
However, Grizz’s answer is acceptable as well
Tom Herman...when he goes 1-12.— TheGrizz (@TheGrizzofBU) July 27, 2017
Does Matt Rhule believe he can D-up the Big 12? If so, can he? https://t.co/WxoiZ3asjx— BUBearon (@TheCardSlinger) July 27, 2017
- I sure hope so, but we might experience some growing pains
How many QBs will start at least one game for Baylor this season? Where would you set the O/U? 2.5?— Oso Fly (@OsoFlyBU) July 28, 2017
I’m setting the O/U at 2, because we should pray that we are never forced into seeing a resurrection of the WildBear.
I’ll see what I can do. But understand, I can’t even get myself on the podcast.
Alrighty then, next question please.
Who will have the biggest impact on DL not named KJ Smith?— Xavi Ferreris (@blessed_city) July 28, 2017
Yes, I feel really good about our chances with Grant Tisdale. As I’ve mentioned before we have another good QB prospect in Chris Herron who isn’t as big of a name, but holds an offer as he has impressed our staff.
Will true freshman, Jon Lovett, push for playing time ?— 14 (@sd14) July 28, 2017
To answer your question, I agree with the following tweet
Abram Smith is out for the season with an injury (I think), but Lovett won't redshirt. He'll play. https://t.co/HI0fK1UXCr— OurDailyBears (@OurDailyBears) July 27, 2017
Oh, and Smith is out for the season incurring an ACL tear this spring.
Will we use Anu Solomon in certain sets or just as a 2nd stringer?— Reid Aldridge (@ReidAldridge15) July 28, 2017
Rhule seems high on Solomon. I think he will be used in certain sets. He would definitely give us a different wrinkle. Kendall gives a great preview of Solomon here.
Status on the big 2017 Olineman from Alabama? He's not listed on the roster.— Gary Hummel (@GH6236) July 28, 2017
I have no update, but am curious as well.
I hope the answer for Herman (and for our enjoyment) is as many as
As for GP, of course not. Here is your weekly reminder:
