From the article;

"It's a double-edged sword for FSU and other schools which find themselves in similar situations. Do they want to earn revenue or build men of character?"

Hmm, I'd think by building men of character, that in itself would earn revenue. What do I know though?

Figured for sure he was gone when I heard of this. 

Then again, it conjures up a lot of potential viewpoints to take. Many other athletes out there, past and present, this program and others, our coach and other coaches' handling of issues....

In the end, how it gets handled should be what's best for Spence, and this is most likely best for him. Will he play again for OSU? Who knows? But right now he needs what he knows, something positive. His future will come soon enough. He needs to get back on track before he heads down a path that can't come back from.

As much as Urban and Herman may not like it, what we need here is a ball control, sustained drive offensive game plan. Rotate the backs in, high % pass plays, even get JT out of the pocket, mobility...and no home run balls...ok maybe a couple. I'm pretty sure we have that blueprint somewhere....

GK is a great talent, but so is Joey Bosa. We hit him in the mouth a few times and then we'll see. Nobody told D Lee to let up on his hits either...finally the promise of finishing a tackle has come!

Definitely can't get complacent after the Kent State victory. Keep on em, keep em working.

Anyone else think the comment regarding the OLine was odd? I mean, we had our 5 for Navy and then we had the VT game. We started the same 5 for the Kent State game and now we're not sure of the best 5? Now?

Comment 16 Sep 2014

If nothing else, I'll gladly take another Offensive game plan like we just had for well, the rest of the year.

Less read-option, virtually no designed runs for JT, multiple backs, and our playmakers in space on shorter routes. No need for the home run ball. Hey, we even used the TE!

Kent State or not, JT showed off his "Distributor" monicker.

And yes, Urbs did mention Jalin ahead of Dontre.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

Also regarding Jalin, he most likely returns that kick for TD if he cuts outside, and not back inside...but hey, he had a GREAT game!

Great effort on the sweep play in the redzone too, diving for the pylon.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

As the article says, Ohio State was supposed to dominate and they did. Lots to be happy about from the game. Kwon, Zeke, plays involving Vannett, special teams, Cardale, on and on. I have to mention Darron Lee covering the throwback screen too, but you guys get the point.

Personally, I was most happy to see JT's game performance. Smooth, calm, truly in control. He had his pitches down. He threw with confidence. Great leader for our Bucks!

Comment 13 Sep 2014

Saw this coming early in the week. Makes sense especially with a bye coming. We don't need Heuerman out there as a blocker anyway. 

Just can't wait to (hoping) get to see him stretch the field and get in that intermediate area. Helluva an athlete.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

A good point on the bye week being brought up....in light of Spence now that is.

I was hoping we'd have a big day today and have that momentum going into the bye, then Cincy. But now it may be best to have the week off to give us more time for prep.

I'm thinking we'll just see what we have seen in Noah's absence, meaning Miller and Frazier, but (and don't kill me here for this one), is it at all conceivable to put Grant at DE and Raekown in the middle? Does Washington move back outside for Schutt or do we see anyone else?

Strictly referring to our rotation here, but hopefully we don't need many "breathers" v Kent.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

We got beat by a bunch of damn nerds, I mean turkies?!

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Sounds as if Heuerman will be very limited or may not play at all (Ozone) because of his foot. Better they hold him back than risk further injury, but it also may mean another game without a TE catch.

C'mon Vannett!

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Correct. And from his looks, Purdue Pete should be locked up as well.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

The infamous "Diamond" formation...look I don't care what the route is, or what the play is, or who the player is, it's  all about execution. If that means more Jalin or a Noah Brown gets a chance, so be it. Last week is over and it sounds as if there's a commitment to getting the Offense on track. Let's hope so.

Personally, I hope there's a commitment to running the damn ball. Give these backs, and more importantly a young O line some confidence.

Saturday can't come quick enough!

Go Bucks!

Comment 11 Sep 2014

I may not know much, but I do know that is one helluva great read.

I can't remember the first material of Ramzy's I read, but I can say I can't wait to read what he writes next!
