PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
BIG BROTHER PROGRAM
BRING THE JUICE
just watched the replay on ESPN. 1st I have seen this content, and dude- I' ready!!! for some Buckeye football. Everybody Douggie!!!
Hope our offense isnt as bad as that last clip...but wow, I may have to replace Paul Rudd with Urban Meyer on top of my man-crush list...can not wait to see this team grow and develop this year.
Only Troy smith days till season
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
It was nice of ESPN to make an hour long commercial for us. I'll take that kind of exposure any day of the week.
Man I'm pulling for Bogard. Hope he has a great career
Anybody know if and when it might be replayed on one of the espn channels?
10 pm tonight on espnu
The dougie scene was absa-smurfly hilarious!

^^ i second this, I was laughing my ass off
Looking at that from a recruit's prosective, how can they NOT commit after seeing this! I HATE to say it, but ESPN did a great job.
I know it was a small sample size, but man I'm concerned about Braxton's passing. Meyer seemed to be too. I know that was a very early practice and things are probably getting better, but the first few games while they are learning this offense could be rough. I thought the show was great though. I was glad Meyer was the hired on as the coach, but honestly I only liked him because he knew how to win. I didn't care much for Meyer the man. After watching that, I really like Meyer. The scene with him talking to Bogard about calling mom was awesome.
Who was the little white guy doing the Dougie? Was he a kicker or team manager? I couldn't figure out who that guy was.
BT- From what I have read...Braxton has improved quite a bit throughout camp, esp the last few practices. I think what we saw was for the sake a of drama on tv....showing a coach concerned with his star QB. You can edit hours of footage however you want, and it appeared to me they were showing mostly some of his struggles. A lot of quotes I've seen here and elsewhere have said that he is starting to feel better about the play of the offense.
Agree about Meyer...def saw him in a different light after watching the all access series.
I agree completely with your first paragraph BtAlbert. I Truely like Meyer now after seeing that, seems more down to earth than he was before. Also I don't ever see Braxton being a great passer here. Good, yes..great, no! He will always be that freaky quick athlete who gets a little better at passing each year but by no means do I see him being an NFL caliber passer. He will have a ton of total yardage and td's before his days are done here and hopefully a lot of winning...which is really all that matters.
Run_Fido's favorite word is strawman.
Agree on perception change as to Urban Meyer. Disagree on Braxton developing as a passer.
You have to remember, Braxton had a full year at OSU (including spring as an early enrollee freshman) where he learned a whole lot of nothing as a passer. He's basically admitted to that. He didn't learn much about protection calls, or identifying defensive fronts. He had a knife at a gunfight.
Meyer and Herman have mentioned that what they saw from him at Saturday's scrimmage was finally an understanding of the offense, knowing what the defense was doing and reacting accordingly. That's much more than half the battle. If Braxton gets the mental part down, the rest is just teaching mechanics. If he's come that far in one offseason plus half a training camp, I would imagine he's got the capacity to grow and develop as a passer exponentially more.
"What we do in life echoes in eternity"
I just always heard he was so much better passing the ball than TP, even where TP was as a Jr and he was a Sr in high school. He throws an ugly ball, which really surprised me. I don't really care what happens after he leaves Ohio State though. When Urban says you are the most dynamic athlete he's every coached at QB that means he'll make great things happen at Ohio State, and I'm fine with that.
I believe he'll grow exponentially more as a passer..maybe close to Troy Smith level, I dunno I just don't think it will be to the point where NFL scouts are drilling over his arm. I'm probably off point here...
I don't doubt Braxton could end up being a very good passer, but I think watching the show and listening to Urban talk, we need to be ready for this offense to progress slowly through the season. He said right now we have an athlete playing QB and last year he was an athlete taking snaps. So, there's still a lot of room to grow for him. He'll get there, and so will the offense, but I am expecting an some speed bumps along the way.
There will no doubt be speed bumps..especially against quality defenses like Mich State, Nebraska, heck even Cal..who is not a dominant defense by any means but always have nfl athletes. I expect quite a few turnovers offensively this season trying to adapt to this new offense.
I agree, that's why I think people need to temper expetations some. I think the 12-0 talk is craziness at this point.
Definitely. I mean we had senior lead teams that were LOADED and still didn't go undefeated..2008 and 2010 come to mind.
That first video was good stuff...the blazin nicknames were great!

13-0. The team is so good that the nation DEMANDS OSU be allowed to play in the NCG.
I completely agree about the show changing the perception lf Coach Meyer for a lot of us. My opinion was exactly that he was just a very damn good coach and knew nothing about the way he is as a respectable man. In my opinion he seem to be a coach that is very confident in everything he does. Almost to the point I thought he was too much of a cocky SOB. Everything out of his mouth seemed to put himself on a pedestal. Especially comments of his from his Gayturd days. I never thought he would be around tOSU for more than five years. This mini series has completely changed my opinion of him as a coach and more importantly of him as a human being. After watching the shows, it enlightened me about how Coach seems to be at his dream job and could very well be our coach until he retires much later in life.
I agree the scene before walk throughs where he is talking to Bogard about how Devin was holding up and concerns for Bogard's mother really opened my eyes about Coach Meyer. What really got me excited about Coach was when they were in warm ups and he says "Unbelievable isn't it, we get to do this", "Gosh I love this game, isn't this a great game!" His excitement about just being to be able to go through life as a football coach and to be around young men and the chance he has to help develop them into well respectable men on and off the field. I would bet a months paycheck that there are not too many coaches that get that excited everyday about being able to do their jobs the way he does. Obviously we all would be extremely stoked, but that is his everyday life. Who among us can say we get that excited about our everyday lives. I do not take the time enough to step back to realize how lucky I am about my life.
Cannot wait to see where he takes this program too in the future, hell I cannot wait until next Saturday
