I don't expect PSU fans to ignore everything JoePa did for the University. But I do expect them to understand the part he played in the scandal, regardless of how big of a part it actually was.
That's a bummer. I think it would be cool to see a drone deliver the game ball.
I have an answer for you! I grew up on the Delmarva Peninsula. They aren't talking about that specific area. They are talking about the DE, MD and VA region as a whole. Specifically, Baltimore/DC/northern VA metroplex.
Great post. As they have slowly neutered the defense, I've lost interest. Big hits are what attracted me to football. Now that I don't get to see those hits much anymore, I'm not terribly interested on Sundays.
I've been watching the Premier League a lot lately for my sports fix. Still haven't found a favorite team to root for yet.
SERIOUSLY?!?!? Even Adam Sandler's team from "The Water Boy" had a kicking coach!
Could you imagine if Urban sat Braxton and lost a game with JT at the helm next year? Columbus would implode like the Death Star.
Personally, I would prefer JT start next year instead of sitting him after gaining a full year of experience. But it would be a PR nightmare. If Braxton is really 100% healthy, you have to start him, despite the downside for the years after.
My prediction is a 2 QB system with Braxton getting the vast majority of the snaps and JT getting a drive here and there. If Braxton gets hurt again, I see Urban handing the reigns over to JT permanently to preserve consistency.
I put Jalin as my favority current Buckeye on my profile when he committed to OSU. I was tempted to change it after he didn't have an impact this year, but decided to give him time. Hope it pays off!! I love the OH Friday night lights guys that wanna do the same thing for the Buckeyes!
Thanks Kyle. Feather in my cap for today!
On that second film with the blitz, it seems the OT should have stayed on the DE (instead of moving up to the inside LB) and the blitzing OLB should have gotten optioned. Is that pre snap read JT's job? Or the O line? I am sure they are going over that in the film room this week. It's easy to see after the fact, but as you are lining up on game day it is a little different.
Does anyone else think Michigan may not cover today? Also, I think Vegas is being kind to Purdue with their line against Notre Dame. The Domers should blow PU out of the water.
I am really impressed at how well Michigan does on the recruiting trail with all of this negative momentum everywhere else. It's mind bottling.
Cardale? Is that you? If so, get off 11W and get back to the playbook!
It would be funny if they just gave up on the TE and just brought in a 6th lineman to play it! Well, not really funny. Just sad. But, it's an option!
My inside sources say he has a younger brother named DeLuigi, but he's not as good as DeMario.
Sorry, I need to get my MENSA membership before I can answer this question.
Yeah M. Thomas needs major reps with the first team this week.
HAHAHA! I usually read the faded out comments to see what was so BAD about them, but after the first two I just started scrolling and they just kept coming! BucksFan70 is getting LIT UP!
I also heard Se'Von Pittman's name a few times during the Akron (Or maybe Toledo?) game!
I thought JT's passes were placed in places where receivers could make plays. Obviously, there were bad throws and drops. One of my biggest complaints about Braxton is that his throws commonly had guys diving to make the catch and not allowing for many yards after catch.
I liked that Apple actually turned and looked for the ball on his interception. WOW! What a novel concept for a DB! Turn and look for the ball instead of just watching your man catch it over your head!!
I liked seeing blitzes for once.
Can't wait for the analysis and breakdown pieces this week.
He is right about the timeline, though. A lot can happen in 2 months of football. This is such a knee jerk reaction culture. I don't think a B1G will make a playoff either, but what if a 1 loss Oklahoma is sitting at home while a 1 loss MSU is crowned in the B1G Championship? Then, you are comparing losses and talking about how MSU played an extra game that OU didn't, etc. Just wait.
I can't read a Shazier thread without thinking "Addition by Subtraction".
Gooble Gobble Gooble Gobble!
He looks 30 in that picture! Haha.
