Cardale wasn't recruited by Meyer and wasn't nearly as good as JT at the read option which is a staple and a must in a Urban Meyer offense.   Cardale struggled to run the offense last year and JT ultimately replaced him. 

He had a magical run and the coaches(Herman)did a great job of tailoring the offense to him after JT got hurt.  Even so, I seriously doubt Urban would've recruited Jones out of high school or offered him a scholarship

The thing I remember most about Pryor during his OSU career was how fierce of a competitor he was. The guy always seems to play his best with the game on the line.  So happy that his NFL career has been revived in Cleveland.  He's also only going to get better.

Pretty bad  IMO...they have some loud guy screaming how MSU is the team to beat because of Dantonio and how they've beaten UM in the past. No real analysis or anything or in depth stats. 

    Not sure why DiNardo has always been a fixture on the BTN shows. He was a bad coach with a 59-76 career record. Not sure who the other guy is but you've got to come with some in depth analysis and not just yell about how good MSU was in the past.

I think more players will be turning pro after the season than are initially projected.  OSU is going to be really good this year. Our strength and conditioning are a level above other programs and it shows. Teams are raving about all the skill and athleticism of the players who came out last year.

We need to start winning again.  We never win anymore

 we don't win in recruiting

we don't in the NCAA

we don't win at the foul line 

we don't win at the three point line

we don't win in the weight room

We have to start winning again

We have to start making Ohio State basketball great again and we're gonna do it

Disagree.  Loving does not have all the skills to be special.  He can shoot and he is creative on the block and can get to the foul line.

Loving is slow footed and does not dribble particularly well on the perimeter.  Couple that with a lacks of development in the weight room the last couple years and you have someone who turns the ball over way too much because he can't beat his mean off the dribble and isn't strong enough to get past him often enough.

A high profile early season win in Norman will propel JT to an early season Heisman favorite.  Late season road wins in Madison and College Station will cemete it.  

Torrence Gibson will score 10TDs

Gareon Conley will be a surprise 3rd team All American 

Sam Hubbard will be defensive MVP, All American 2nd team and 1st round pick 

Coaches will once again struggle to use Dontre Wilson and Curtis Samuel affectively in various positions.  Meyer will continue to say " We need to find a way to get them the ball more" in reference to Wilson and Samuel

As my SN suggests I play all the Omaha variants.  PLO high is really popular in casinos right now.  A really fun game we play is also called Big O. It's 5 card, pot limit hi lo.  It can be played with a max of 8 players.  A lot of gambly, recreational players love it but be prepared for huge swings

It's fine to be critical. Nothing wrong at all about that.  Someone who gets paid as much as the coaches do should produce results. I saw one poster above call Beck "worthless" and others who just use derogatory terms describing him. 

Criticism is fine, unjust think some posters go overboard with all of it

Comment 10 Jan 2016

There's just been a lack of general player development. Let's see if it changes with the 2015 class.  

There was little to no development from the Amir Williamams, Trey McDonald, Sam Thompson and Shannon Scott class.  They never got better and never developed consistent shooting.  Loving has improved some, but he still lacks any kind of strength(does he even lift?)

Regrettably I haven't seen any improvement from last seasons biggest surprise JaSean Tate. He is the same player except his offense is worse and his shooting is atrocious. B1G defenses are adjusting to how he plays.  KBD is still wildly inconsistent.  A non factor in B1G play so far.  Kam Williams has definitely shown the most growth from the class

Always beware of a guy who stands next to you in the urinal and says " hey, nice watch"

Comment 06 Dec 2015

I agree with RU.... There is a big difference between the Herman situation and Ash.  OSU was in the midst of a national title chase and playoff run.  We needed Herman because we had so much still to play for and gameplan for.  If it was the other way around I'd want the new coach there ASAP especially for recruiting purposes

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Ohio State needs 3 teams ahead of them to lose.  With Baylors loss consider OSU as #7 heading into the day.   Don't think the committee is putting any 2 loss teams ahead of OSU after the way we played on the road in a rivalry game against a top 10 team. 

ND lose to Stanford-- both teams would have 2 losses and aren't jumping OSU

Assuming MSU beats PSU. The loser of the B1G championship falls below OSU

Then either ALA needs to lose or OU

 best chance is OK St beating OU at home tonight
