Both evans and Oliver have been listed as backup PR all season. I doubt julmisse gets into the mix there.
I am. Tony is electric with the ball in his hands.
Got to catch it first.
Yep. I don't even think Julmisse is listed on the PR depth chart? Not sure why this is even being discussed.
Hasn't he returned some punts earlier in the season ?
No. That was Isaiah Oliver who returned 2 punts this year so far. My guess is that Julmisse doesn't currently have the hands part of that down. Catching a punt is a very unique talent that many "hands" guys can't do reliably. I returned punts for 4 years of high school while not being very elusive or fast. Every week in practice, the Head Coach (who coached the return teams) had it as his #1 goal to replace me and every Friday Night I was out there catching them. The point being, the most electric guy isn't often the best candidate. I'd guess that after JayMac, it's Oliver, and for a reason.
I'd think more as a 4th WR.
I wonder if JMc may have taken a hit to the head early in the game, before the 1st drop. After the 1st, he backed away from a punt, not because of ASU pressure, and the announcers wondered if he was having trouble seeing. The 2nd fumble, the ball looked to pass thru his arms, not touching his hands. (I'm watching a replay, and with 13 mins left in the 3rd Q, JM backs away from a bouncing punt, and the TV again notes, "he's having trouble with punts tonight" - they saw 2 clear problems before our coaches did)
also, there have been a lot of games, esp in the P12, where I didn't like how the refs called the game. Opposite here: several plays were close enuf, a bad ref might have nailed us. good non-calls.
Winning the P12 BB tourney, was the last time I felt so good due to a Buff victory. Proud to be a Buff.
I'm still curious how julmisse fits into this team going forward. He's fast and caught some balls during the scrimmage but he's played defense as well from what I've seen. He should be a playmaker wherever he fits in though.
The secondary depth chart is a lot thinner next year than WR. If he can contribute there, that's where I'd like to see him.
That's true. Looks like we lose awuzie, Witherspoon and tedric Thompson. Damn, that sucks. If they were all juniors we would have an insane defense next year to look forward too. Julmisse looks like awuzie's backup so he should be the starter there next year.
Oliver and Julmisse, NB will be an interesting spot to fill.
Just off the depth chart. Udoffia, laguda, Blackmon, julmisse, fisher, trego, Witherspoon, moeller. They're all listed as DB's. Zero clue who steps up out of that group.
But julmisse is 6'1" and 185. If he buckles down and learns the skills he has the speed and talent to probably be a real good DB.
You're forgetting Oliver.
Pizzo mentioned him so I didn't. Listed julmisse twice by accident.
Maybe Fisher. Maybe AJ. 2017 defense is going to have a lot of talent and a lot of question marks as we head into fall camp. Wouldn't surprise me if a true frosh or two cracked the 2-deep.
It is very rare that a punt returner can give you more returning the ball than you give up with even one muffed punt. That 40 yards and load of momentum changes a game much more than 40 or more yards worth of returns on a number of punts. If it weren't for the lousy field position that you get giving up the roll I think a lot of coaches would prefer to not even try to field it.
Look at the NFL teams that put some hands guy out there with instructions that unless they have huge amounts of open space they are to fair catch everything.
Me either. Gotta wait and see how our recruiting ends up in a few months. Damn I hate waiting.
Moeller won't get close to the NB spot. I think that the rest of his time at CU we are going to see him more and more in that hybrid SS/OLB position like he played last night.
Julmisse probably contends for starting CB next year. Keep him there.
I'd like to see Moeller beef up a couple more lbs. and keep playing the hybrid position. It essentially gets us a 6th db out there against the pass-happy teams.
Falo really starting to step up!!!
I'm pretty sure Gillam gets another year? Correct? Man oh man on that play where he decided to come out of coverage drop and get to Wilkins reminded me of JJ Billingsley. Heat seeking missile. IDK what it looked like on TV but live it was as impressive a defensive play as I've seen in a few years. There is a reason why he got national accolades his freshman year.
Anybody hear anything recently about Ev. White; he was working on a path back to the team last I heard and could figure in the DB/LB mix as well.
Actually sat next to him in the Student section... said he's back in January
On tv it looked like, well, you've heard the term "the ball carrier was separated from the ball." In this case it looked like the QB was separated from his balls.
Nice! He's been kind of quiet on twitter since the baby was born, but still gives a Like every now and then to CU football stuff. Glad to know the plan remains the plan.
If Jewels can return punts, It wouldn't bother me any. It doesn't have to be an all the time thing.
35 year olds in the student section....
Safety seems to be a huge ? next year. Laguda and????????
