    IMHO, that's what the coaches have to sell at this time. I don't know if it's a violation to discuss the 400,000 living alums. From a business stand point it, sounds like an organization worth being a recognized member of.

    In the Iggy vs Mentor regional final game, wherever Blake lined up, Mentor swapped Strobel over to his side. Blake dominated Strobel all night long. He simply controlled Strobel and made him a non-factor.

    I respect scout's evaluations but to me Strobel isn't a top 100 kid. Had 2 sacks as a junior and saw him play vs Solon and although he had 3 sacks, he did absolutely nothing the rest of the game and they were all coverage sacks.

    Kinda looks like Tarzan and plays like Jane. The knocks on Wormley where he's not very active and allows linemen to get into him way too easily seem to apply to the Strobel I saw.

    JMO. Glad to see Thomas is doing well. See how he fits into an Urban offense.

  10. I may be wrong but I think he was saying Blake made him a non factor by blocking him.

    ant80 Think less, feel more.

    Yes he did. Stupid post on my part. Wasn't thinking straight. Deleted it.

    On a different note, why would they put Strobel on Thomas if they knew Blake was blocking him? For a few times, I would understand, but the whole game? Wouldn't you want to use your best DL to get through the OL instead of being blocked like a wall? Aniways... back to Thomas. :osu:

    Probably wanted Strobel to jam Thomas at the line so he wouldn't get a clean release.

    But why would you consistently use your best DL to jam the TE? That doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Nope. I believe that the scouting report showed that Iggy runs to the TE side around 90% of the time. Nothing to do with jamming, more to do with trying to stop the run game. And the few times that Iggy did a play action, and Blake released, the "jam" was a non-factor :).

    Well then Blake Thomas > Strobel/game plan, get used to it :biggrin: That makes sense but it is nice to know Blake can block so well. Seems like we really got a player here.
