this is a terrible thread and should never be on here. Asshat-ish...These are kids who chose to come and play for OSU..regardless
Bull...We are every bit as good as both and that is why you play the game. They are tough but so are the Bucks. I'd say they are 2 of the 4 best teams. No saying that both OSU or Stanford wouldn't win tonight.
What a Buckeye...What he hopefully knows and understands about last years championship run is that HE was responsible, in a lot of ways, for those guys success on the field. The team learned how to win and have success from Braxton's 12-0 run in 2012. He set the tone and the confidence this team needed to believe in themselves and know they can win at the highest level. The following year, in 2013, he set the tone for the hunger they had in 2014 by playing through injury in a gut filled performance against MSU in the BIG title game and the Bowl game against Clemson. Playing through that arm injury was Ironman- like ... Every Buckeye is grateful for that.
The NFL will find a place for him and he will succeed at the next level. Go Brax and go Bucks...IO
My Prob with it is in light of the recent slew of arrests/suspensions with Buckeye players. High caliber guys are getting in trouble. Now we have a coach who had half his team expelled for crimes,and not just misdemeanors either. Hmmm
As a die hard Buckeye I welcome him and I'll give him the benefit of the doubt...(as if my opinion matters)
no. Oklahoma was also 11-1 and NOT the defending national champs.
am i missing something or is there one frosh name left out of the DL speculation?? I think his brother plays here...
nothing against the post though. It was a good post to lift our hopes : )
none of this matters if we don't handle business against TSUN...If we do, i'll take an interest.
I don't buy this no receivers thing. I've seen Brax and Samuel get separation a lot this season. We have the #1 receiver in the NFL draft and he gets targeted less that 5 times a game.
Watch Cinci, Temple, Western Michigan etc air it out to receivers never even recruited by big time programs. We can't do that with Terry McLaurin? Paris Campbell? Curtis Samuel? Hell, McLaurin and Campbell would start for those teams just mentioned and be big contributors.
and WHY THE HELL, in week 10 or 11 is our line strugglig to pass protect? Who's fault is that? maybe cause the plays are vanilla and predictable? no QB development due to no pass plays? no receiver development due to no pass plays? No line development due to no need to protect? all 4 and 5 star talent to boot.
im so tired of hearing the no deep threat bullsh$t. There are Mac teams heaving it long every game with success, sometimes against us this year, with receivers that would never crack the depth chart at OSU.
Samuel and Miller were open deep almost every time. The throws either weren't strong enough or were never called by the QB guru and offensive genius Tim Beck.
this shitstorm was all on offensive coaches..period
coaching 101...run the ball, use time..either get the first down or kick with no time left. Marvin will never take this team near a superbowl
Whiffing cost "us" this year? How about it cost Cardale Jones a career!
Heard that from Spiels all game and he is spot on
don't bother responding to this troll. Every one of his comments has been blasting fans.
Why not let Cardale throw the ball up 28-3 with 4 min to go? This OC has already greatly diminished CJ's ability to go to the NFL. When you see JT struggle like today you realize the staff may be weak. Play calling today was high school at best.
Love my Bucks but it's time to face reality about this staff. This is essentially the same team as last year and they can't figure out how to use all these athletes.
These fans have a right to be frustrated and you may be the A-hole
Iowa hasn't played squat. I'm sorry but Pitt is overrated.
I like your passion, especially about the poor coaching, but what the hell are you talking about with Vonn? He will start in the NFL almost immediately.
Easy there TP...If you think the play calling is fine, then that is embarrassing for you... Up 21 - 0 in the fourth quarter with the best running back in the country in a game where you need the clock to keep running, you throw the ball? With Cardale Jones?
We are up 21-0 so CJ can't win us the game with his arm, but he could lose it with a costly interception. Plus the clock stops. Junior high coaching calls in the 4th qtr last night.
How can you tell? We haven't thrown one bomb in 5 games. Meanwhile, every other team from bowling Green to Baylor to TCU to toledo are slinging the bomb. In college it works 1/3 of the time. See what happened against the Bucks Sat nite. Does this mean all these other teams including MAC teams have better recievers than us? NO WAY.Throw the DAMN ball.
Absolutely not. Not even close to the talent on OSU. Better coaching yes. Better depth and talent not a chance.
Sparty may be weaker than we think
Remember this ..Eastern Washington put up 40 + on Oregon...They are the weak team...Lets wait to see what Utah does with USC and UCLA before we get too lofty on them.. TUN is better, but how many times did TUN start out 5-0 or 6-1 in the past 8 years only to fold up shop??
