BTN currently showing the 30 minute version of the 2010 rose bowl.  forgot what the "old" offense looked like.

Well, he did say he didn't know how to throw when he got to the NFL.

I'd trade our defense of recent years for that Rose Bowl defense straight up!

Born a Buckeye, raised a Buckeye, will die a Buckeye.

rkylet83's picture

I REALLY miss that defense.  In my opinion the 2009 Defense was the best in the Tressel era.

 

rdubs's picture

My cable package doesn't inlcude BTN here in Maryland yet (I was hoping it would change but apparently not yet).  Does anyone know of any way to watch online?  I wouldn't want to break any copyright laws so please no pirated versions...

rkylet83's picture

The offensive line is just painful to watch.

Ballard was so under utilized back then.  Now he's a good TE in the NFL.

Buckeye_in_SEC_country's picture

I'm looking at BTN2GO and if I'm correct you can't watch it without accessing your cable provider through the website.  So... If your basic cable package at home doesn't have BTN, then you can't watch it at all.  

 

Any other ideas out there?

Are you trustworthy???? Pm me.  I have an xfinity account that does and I'm watching it at my home...

when asked in pregame interview about his thoughts on the backup qb situation, says cardale & jt have been a surprise, but buckeyes need to "go recruit a quarterback."  please stay healthy, brax.

I thought EZE won initially until Kwon got chippy at the end.

Gotta give the nod to Urban. He has given this team back to the students. Wish it was like that when I was there...

cameras finally show the south stands... cordoned off, but looks like no construction has started yet.

Looks like a few not participating. I've seen Elflein without pads. Noah Spence?

I found a radio stream.... and this guy is an idiot.  Doesn't know who anyone is.

I hear u man, but better than nothing right?  a live stream would be awesome.

Luckily I found someone to record it for me, but I'm still punishing my ears with this awful broadcast because I want to know what's going on, hahaha.  This guy literally knows nothing about this team.  He makes Beth Mowins sound like a hall-a-fame announcer

Inauspicious start for Barrett. Ouch

JT has to step it up. Has to know when pressure is coming.

Seattle Linga's picture

I always like the Spring Game b/c coaches find out an awful lot about things they have to work on. Every year there are always things that every position need to work on. This year we may more things to work on more than other years in the past.

 

UrbanCulture's picture

wait... a slant route?

FROMTHE18's picture

does anyone else hate the commentary by BTN right now? I wish they would just talk more about the plays than off field stuff, or at least just have Mason stop being Mason for a minute

Cardale definitely handles the O better than JT, has much better pocket presence and just seems more confident back there

good to see screens not torching the defense i guess

When you take the read option out of the mix, which our O is based on, it's tough to get a true reading on the qb's.

Defense isn't giving up run after catch. It's amazing what happens when you press.

Pass coverage does look tighter but vs. the two backups. Wonder how they'd be doing with Brax slinging it.

Buckeye06's picture

Listening to you guys is funny.  If the offense was wrecking shop, it would be "god the defense is so bad" but when the O isn't rolling "the O sucks so bad, our backup QBs suck!"

Maybe our D is going to be good and we have 4 new OL starters (split into 2 units)

Dunn looked great on that drive, shades of El Guapo out there. A hard determined runner that doesn't shy away from contact. Loved that 3rd and 2 conversion he had early in the drive.

True. One wonders how crisp Brax will look as a passer though in the fall. Can't have him running all the time this year with no Kenny G magic coming off the bench when Brax gets knocked out again.

Flashes of brilliance on offense - Defense is playing pretty well so far.

+2 HS
741's picture

I missed the whole first quarter, and started watching with about 8 minutes remaining in the second... It was 6-3 when I turned the tv on so I feel very little offensive brilliance could have occurred, but perhaps I am wrong.

That said, I've seen a couple decent runs by Warren Ball, and about one million deep balls thrown for incompletions. Zero brilliance. 

-1 HS
Kid Gloves's picture

Wedge runs and swing passes have been very good

Nutinpa's picture

Well....it's giving us our college football fix, okie.

Good news?  Our DBs are looking good......Apple especially.

Bad news?  Some parts painful to watch. Youth on O Line is obvious.  WRs not getting as much separation as I would have expected....going against a secondary that has been a sieve  in recent years.

 

Seattle Linga's picture

What's up with that pass - is it very windy there?

okiebuck's picture

Cool, thanks Seattle!

"Fate has cards that it don't want to show"

These games are so hard to evaluate because it's strength vs strength and if we score it looks bad on the defense and if the D holds it looks bad for the offense,

Defense should be ahead of the offense at this point; so it's good to hear some of y'all commenting that the DB's are playing decent. Is Urban letting the defense hit the QB's or do they have yellow shirts on?

Man....I'm confused. I thought that was his strength since everyone was saying he has a cannon of an arm. Maybe the accuracy isn't there yet.

Oh snap! Coombs gets Gatorade bath.

Rough start for JT Barrett but he did reasonably well after that and maybe closed the gap some

Based on the identity of our offense, I think JT is more likely to run it with his run ability.

A nice soaking for coach Coombs!

Good and bad, long way to go. Good the defensive system, they look faster. They are reacting instead of overthinking. Bad, offensive line and back up QBs but that's expected. Good reps.            

No injuries which is huge. Thomas looked good, Cory smith as well. McMillion is going to be a good one for sure. I expect him to play a lot. All in all a good day to be a Buckeye

Whoa! There are literally hundreds of folks at Wisky spring game. And that might be an exaggeration.

What happened to Elliot I didn't see them very much of him

KBonay's picture

Mostly Ball v Dunn.  With Samuel thrown is as well.

TUNBUCK89's picture

You can look at it this way: the coaches already know what to expect out of him & they are confortabe with it and they needed to see more out of Dunn & Ball.

Yeah, i remember reading it but i forgot in what thread it was. Hopefully, he'll create a new forum post once he does that.

They won't come out and say it but I think EE has basically secured the top spot already.  They probably already know what they have in him.  I think they wanted to see the other guys compete for #2 spot.

Who is (91) Parry? Can't find him on the grid.

Radio said he is a walk on. Aaron Perry. No idea on class, but if he fills out, he could be someone to watch. He made a couple nice plays today. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

I believe he is a sophmore walk-on from Zanesville Bishop Rosecrans,

Any word why Dontre didn't play? It was a bit of a bummer going to the game with all of our big names out. 

hetuck's picture

I think Dontre, Bosa, Grant, et al were held out to avoid injury. You can bet Urban is tired of Earle telling him about the spring game where Tomczak broke his leg.

I forgot about Michael Hill! I don't think the "Deepest D-Line in the Nation" talk from ole' Mason is too far off...

Matta took advantage of the day by bringing Thompson's group down on the field. Posed for pictures with Urban & Braxton.

Hey Gene, keep the tickets at $5 a piece next year and free parking.  That was great for a family on a budget with 4 kids.  We got to sit in the AA and had a great time/seats.
