Have you watched the film on these guys? They look pretty damn good from what I saw. People bitched about Feder being a 3* then he became a top100 player after the camps. And Tyler Green, then he went to the Opening, so I think the coaches know talent.
Hell yeah! This kids game is incredible so glad he recommits. These last 2 classes are full of some serious talent.
What time and channel?
It's insane how people are attacking the players and coaches like complete yahoos. Yes, we lost the game and there was questionable play calling, but we still could've won. If we get the 10 pts from the dropped TD and missed FG, and it's a totally different outcome. Not to mention, every offensive player that was involved are first year players. There's 3 returning starters on offense kinda, and really only one's an important position in LT with Decker, and he switched from RT. Oh and VaTech's gonna be a top 10 team by seasons end. When this team starts winning, and this loss doesn't look so bad, all the haters will be "fans" again.
Your comments prove your point about Warriner wrong for me. He's the reason Mewhort, Linsley, Hall and Norwell became the capable linemen they are. He's widely regarded, by all of his peers, as one of the best OL coaches in CFB. Comments like these make the rest of Buckeye fans look bad.
It's funny how people are complaining about Meyers offense not being good. He did just set every offensive record OSU has in the books. This teams young and we faced a buzz saw defense. It will get better and be contenders as the season progresses.
Glad to see this post. I'm actually embarrassed by the comments and reactions of "fans" to the players and coaches. It's pretty ridiculous and it just makes Buckeye Nation look bad. Like it was said above, this team has so many new starters on both sides of the ball, especially offensive line and QB, theres gonna be issues to fix. Not to mention, I think VaTech's gonna be one of the top teams in CFB this year. This team can still beat TTUN and win the B1G, which I'm sure everyone would be very happy with.
I agree and think Herman's play calling was out of concern for the OL. The coaches said the navy game they couldn't run the plays they wanted in the 1st half because the OL. Meyer said all week, he's concerned about the OL, yet we still could've won this game without the missed TD and FG. In 2012 the OL was a major concern and we almost lost several non-conf games. The line cemented itself as the season went on and we finished strong. I think the OL comes together and we can still win the B1G championship.
Exactly right, and most of those drops were from Corey smith. We've heard from the coaches all camp how he's inconsistent but could be the most talented. He literally should've had like 4 catches 100yds TD. His dropped TD and the missed FG are 10 pts that would've probably won the game. Not to mention, the momentum would've totally changed the entire atmosphere.
Totally agree. Just look at the write up, missed FGs and a dropped TD pass account for 10 pts, 6 at least. Barrett drove us down the field on all those occasions and other players didn't finish. If Barrett wasn't playing, I honestly think it would've been worse.
His film reminded me a lot of Wilson's, definitely think he's an H-back. Not to mention, Harris stating he wants to be the only RB in the class and we already missed out on Scott and Weber.
Alot of the issues were from guys trying to be disciplined and slowing things down a bit. Also the navy WRs were "blocking" at the thighs of the LB or S responsible for the pitch and taking out their legs. I think a lot of the guys were trying to avoid injury from low blocks and it affected several plays. We'll see a much faster and efficient defense against VaTech.
I'm gonna have to go with the o-line but Barrett had a pretty good day so they weren't awful. The major thing to me, why did they switch Elflein and Price. I understand having Decker and Elflein together but they'd been practicing there all camp. It's gotta throw a guy off, having to do everything backwards.
Go to Minnesota to play and learn from Jared Allen. He's got the same motor and needs to be a DL, not a LB.
What time is the game?
Id like to add a guy for 2015, Joey Burrow. I think this kids gonna end up being an incredible steal. Might end ubarring one of the most accurate passers we've had in years.
Paris Campbell, dudes super fast and could make an impact on returns.
To me, that means they don't actually have good senior leadership. It's like our team in 2011 and we didn't do very well. The leadership on our team this year is going to be a major factor in being successful, especially with Braxton out. Im glad we have incredible captains, it will show on the field.
Im so glad thry did! After Braxton's injury, attention on the game went up dramatically. I wonder if this played a part in adding cbssports the week of the game. I mean buckeye cable went like 8 months without NBC but added it back about a month ago probably because the NFL seasons starting. Football rules the world!
It's a matter of the YAC he picked up. His vision of the field is incredible and not something that can be taught. Not to mention his speeds obvious. I bet we offer him pretty soon.
I would love to see Grant have an awesome year and finally be the beast we've all been waiting for. From the sound of it, he's doing well in this new D and it should help everyone overall.
Picked the Vols. Hopefully that means Richmond and Burrell are gonna be Buckeyes.
