I agree Penn St has a much better chance than Wash to beat Alabama
I'd be leery about the decision making of an individual that decides to ink himself with a bevy of neck tattoos
NB with the play of the game. Fans should look at that play before staying this team plays with no heart
Put McCall in. Look at the plays he makes already. If a Dog is gonna bite, look for signs early.
This is true. Michael Thomas was truly underutilized based on his skill set
Go go jail
This goes back to Philly Brown and his disasterous fielding of punts late in the 2013 season. It was so bad they even had Elliott back there to fair catch and even HE muffed it.
Give Austin Mack some run. Also the team really could use Torrance Gibson's size and athleticism right now
I feel like the team really misses Torrance Gibson. Best athlete on the team imo and can get open by default based on his size and athleticism alone.
they would both have 2 losses which puts OSU in based on overall record
He's probably the most efficient lineman on the team. Look at his QB pressures and tackle and sacks and he plays much fewer snaps so far than the starters
Does Nick Bosa even lift, bro. ?
The only "young receiver" in the rotation is KJ Hill. I don't consider Mack in the regular rotation.
Clark and Wilson are in their 4th year in the program.
Dixon, McLaurin, Campbell and Brown are all in their 3rd years. Not sure to consider them young anymore. Meyer essentially said the same thing after the OK game in describing how the team isn't young anymore
Briles would work. Under Tiller Purdue was the highest scoring team in the B1G
Purdue was at least competitive during the Joe Tiller years. With Bree's they were called "basketball on turf" . They were the highest scoring B1G team back then and it really wasn't all that long ago
I was telling someone just yesterday how impressed I've become with Fickell as a coach. I know people like to give him shit but he's improved also. Urban had that affect on coaches too. He brings out the best and I believe that Fickell has really gotten better the last few years under Meyer. Hope he stays
They're role guys, like Evan Spencer or secondary options like Jalin. Campbell, McLaurin, Dixon and Clark. Nice players and good blockers but not the playmakers or downfield threats that are needed.
Noah is big and strong but not particularly fast which makes it harder to get open downfield. Even his long TD catches vs OK he was well covered and wasn't really open. He had great hands though. He is more of a big threat once OSU reaches the red zone.
This is why the coaches decided to burn Vic's RS.
Wisconsin will probably win their division and he'll be COY
I'll add to that, I think the biggest play of the game and what really saved the Buckeyes was the holding call on Wisconsins last drive of the 4th. They were gashing our D on 1st and 2nd down and driving across midfield for a winning FG. Very reminiscent of last years MSU drive where we couldn't stop LJ Scott on the final drive. The holding call I believe saved the game
Bosa might be the best player on the line already. Definitely the most versatile
Of all the craziest stats I've ever heard, that was definitely crazy
I think the WR's are who they at this point. I highly doubt that McLaurin, Campbell, Dixon or Clark will turn into big time playmakers. Good players for sure who are good for a couple catches per game. But not real consistent downfield, playmaking threats. Noah Brown, yes but he still needs to get better. His biggest asset is his size and hands. This is why you've seen the coaches burn Victors redshirt. Need a consistent downfield WR with good hands that can create separation.
Fwiw, this was also the first time we really saw Tyler Durbin put in a pressure situation. I know he's not a freshman but he is a first year player who had never played football in his his life before this year. His FGs kept the game close in the first half. Definitely clutch
Also pleasently surprised that Harrison is getting some run every game now. He was one lesser heralded '16 recruits, but has worked hard and is now playing every game as a true freshmen. Very impressive as he is local and one of the last guys to sign in the class. Very good size and frame on the kid too
