Isn't Cam currently listed at Powell's backup at the SS position, not Bell's?
Ohio State wins because we're better at football.
Essentially, yes. You'll see a lot of them clearly do it to trap the defensive player and get the call.
Can I respond in a few weeks? At this time, I'd tend to agree with you, but I also wouldn't mind seeing him carry the ball at this level to know what we're potentially looking at next season at the RB position.
Ah, yes, the classic downvote for your opinion. I agree with you, and, though I love our normal jerseys, wouldn't mind seeing what Nike comes up with. If we win, who cares?
I don't think you'll need to worry about Weber being a replacement for Samuel this year. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if a healthy Weber (which may not be something we see this year) took snaps at RB, with Samuel still being on the field as an HB. Point being, keep Samuel on the field as much as possible, regardless of position.
I think it's great. There may not be a ton of opportunities to do this, so why not live it up? Members of the sports media consistently refer to MAC teams as pushovers or mock them being on B1G schedules, so I like this move for BG. Well done, Falcons.
The offense looks better but still has some stalled drives and 3 and outs.
490 Total Yards of Offense:
Vonn Bell has a pick 6, Cam Johnston stops a punt at the 1, Zeke has 4 runs of 10+ yards, Michael Thomas has over 100 yards receiving
Good write-up. Nothing in there too offensive, just a good self-analysis of the Bucks.
Fair enough, just don't tell them!
I disagree. They're 8th in the B1G in rushing, 11th in passing, tied for 11th in INTs, and tied for 11th in turnover margin. That looks more like a team that does make mistakes and isn't terribly successful at punching people in the mouth. However, I will grant you that their defense has looked solid.
I'm assuming NWU = NU?
I love this round table format, and my favorite part this week is that all 3 guys names a different offensive and defensive person as the "most indispensable." I suppose that could be taken in a negative way, but I think it's awesome that you can name 6 of the 22 starters and claim that they are the most important to the team.
For future prognostications, is there anyway to get all of the comments onto one page with a "See All" ?
For this round, since I'm assuming everything else it taken, I'll say 1 dollar (yard), Bob.
I love Thursday Night Football. I get the complaints about safety, and if they resolved that by taking away football on Thursdays, that would make sense, but they haven't yet... so woohoo another night with football for me! I guess I'm missing where the huge failure part is.
Went back and looked at a random 2013 and 2014 depth chart and it's nice to see that we either have some players still growing vertically or some slight exaggerations... Decker, Boren, Farris, James Clark, Jalyn Holmes, and Barrett have all "grown" at least an inch in their time at OSU.
How can you even think about recruiting during a time of crisis like this?! Don't you realize we only beat Hawai'i by 38?!
I've wondered about the politics of the decision too. It has to weigh on him to know that not starting Cardale, who has a very young child, could significantly affect his life after OSU. I know this is likely an unpopular opinion, and to be clear, I've been a supporter of the "you can't take the ball away from the guy who just won it all" theory, but that thought has to be there, right?
Or, maybe Urban is able to look past that, without consideration to anything outside of football. If it were me, it'd be tough to overlook or push out of my mind. Then again, any OSU QB that wins a national title will likely be taken care of by the community for quite some time after his playing days.
Whatever he wants it to be.
On the other hand, Marshall had his issues last year and Urban stuck with him, which clearly worked and built his confidence...

I agree that they'd have the advantage, but Decker and Elflein, at the very least, are NFL players in the near future. Boren, Price and Farris are well-taught 300 pound men, not middle school kickers. So, while I agree that the NFL caliber players would have the advantage, anyone on an NFL 3rd string is not so much better than a starter on this team that you'd be watching a non-stop sack fest.
To reiterate, I agree completely that no CFB team could beat an NFL team. That's crazy.
So you'd take McGloin over Cardale right now? Taiwan Jones over Zeke?
I don't think OSU would beat an NFL team. I know they wouldn't, but I've gotta stop you once you get into 3rd string teams winning by 50, that's silly.
