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.
The impression I get is Barrett's a better version of Guiton without the experience. So once this kid gets some snaps, he should be really efficient in this offense and probably will.
I think Jones with Smith and Elliott would be a lethal goaline package. Read option with a lead blocker, tough to stop.
This guy basically has single handed saved more careers than any person alive. Dudes a miracle worker when it comes to athletes recovering from major injuries.
That would be me and I'm damn happy! Don't know why he wasn't the Dr from the start.
Second shoulder surgery since July? Anyways, this the news I've been waiting to hear. Andrews will get Miller back on track for sure.
All I know is Dr. James Andrews better be doing the surgery to repair his shoulder. Braxton deserves the best doctor to insure its done right so he recovers fully healthy.
Actually, it's not just the country but our own fans, that are writing off the season. The players, Dontre Wilson and Darron Lee in particular, said the fans reactions haven't been too loyal. I think all this is gonna make them angry to prove everyone wrong.
They actually think they're gonna win the B1G right now. They're gonna freak when they lose their first game, especially when it's in the non-conference.
I think scUM, minn and possibly maryland end up in the top 25. There's a lot more depth in the conference this year and some incredible matchups the first few weeks. The perception of the conference is gonna be made from those games so hopefully everyone's healthy and ready to go.
Tell that to Frank Gore, he tore both his knees in consecutive years at Miami. Hes been pretty successful in the NFL for the 49ers for the last like 5yrs.
With all the O-lineman they've taken the last 4 classes, you'd think they'd be pretty solid by now. They must not be very good at developing lineman. Mattison's the only reason they've won at all with Hoke as HC.
Gesicki will be a threat this year. They actually have depth at TE. We'll still kick their ass at their big night game.
What are the injuries? That sucks Berger just got done rehabbing his knee. Hope they aren't serious.
My point is the kids dead and his families effected forever, regardless what happens legally. And having gone thru something like this, even if it's a crime the punishment isn't shit even though a life is lost.
Having the parents involved in the program is great. They become defacto recruiters and advertisers for the culture and the school. I think it's great for the players and the coaches, having the families involved as much as possible, it makes for a lot more healthy environment for everyone. Its great to see Elliott and Hilliards dads out there promoting the school. The families should absolutely be provided travel expenses for any game they want to attend, no matter what. Especially, when you talk about the conference championship and the playoffs. Most fans can barely afford one big game, let alone all of them, and possibly for 4 years in a row. Thats a ton of $$$ just to watch your own kid play, while they provide the entertainment for millions of others.
All the speculations pointless. A mans dead and that's all that matters. My prayers go out to his family. My younger brother was struck and killed by a drunk driver in 2005. The woman had no license and left the scene but was charged with vehicular homicide. Unfortunately, the "justice" system has a ridiculously low sentence for that charge. The woman served 6 months in a rehab facility and got probation. My point is, this should be about helping the young man's family with this tragedy, because when the "news" is over, that's what matters in the end. Regardless of who did what, how and why.
Elliott's definitely the better all around RB, with his pass catching ability and speed, but I wouldn't mind if Rod Smith finally dominates the opponent. Smith looked great in the highlights I've seen from fall camp. He could really make it one helluva backfield with Elliott and Miller.
I think this season will go along way showing how well we use our talent. Dixon and Mcmillan should make a pretty good impact and help persuade some of the elite recruits to play for us.
