Not sure I'd go that far. Football players are generally hitting harder and far more often
Good point. I was assuming he would have to be off the team.
How could Spence get back on the team? He is permanently disqualified per B1G rules, and it's not even a gray area.
I would assume that not happening. The OL didn't do much to help him in that game either.
I think that's a pretty solid model. The only concern I would have with it would be what would happen to a team that's traditionally good but has an off year, or would that just be part of the system? Even if that happened, it would still make the conference race more interesting top to bottom, rather than just for the top three teams in each division. Although there would have to be some sort of concession for if Michigan got relegated that we would still be able to beat the crap out of them late in November.
Answer the question: Which of those four would you have back as our QB this year?
I'd guess most people would answer Smith, as I would. I'd say he was the best all-around QB of the four, being pretty athletic, but still having a very good arm and accuracy. Krenzel wasn't as athletic, although he was definitely tough, and while Pryor and Miller were clearly superior athletically, neither was on Troy's level as a passer, which is still the primary function of a QB. Although, oddly enough, I think any of them could work for the current offensive scheme, if not all exactly in the same way.
Harvest Pizzeria in German Village or on High st. just north of campus. Not sure how well it's known, although probably getting bigger.
Also, Louie's Fusion Grill in Hilliard. Similar to Starliner as mentioned earlier, but a little nicer.
I'm neither a Browns nor a Bengals fan, but I'd go to that game if I got a chance. I think if they did a two-year deal trading which game was at home, it would work well.
Who would think that Michigan State would be quarterback U, even for a weekend?
Probably just because he wasn't an early enrollee
I feel like there will be many applications for this gif.
I'd estimate fewer than 20 picks as well as fewer than 36 TDs. Both of those stats have been inflated by a game. While he isn't likely to throw six scores again this season, he's also not particularly likely to throw three picks in a game either. I can't remember if he was at fault for all three in the VT game, but the last one likely wouldn't have happened if we weren't trying to haul down the field to score, and the one vs Kent State definitely wasn't his fault, so I'd take the under on the 20 picks.
Are they looking to change starters at center? I know they had Elflein there for a while and he was doing well
It really is. If you look at it, there were 5 or more guys that were Buckeyes last year that either started or made significant contributions in NFL games last week. That is huge for one draft class and shows how much talent and experience we lost over the offseason.
These sort of games are enjoyable on occasion. It's nice to just chill and watch the Buckeyes just go beat another team out of the 'Shoe. That said, the most memorable ones are never shutouts.
Just put another 8 on there with tape. No one has to know.
It would also make Alabama look less good, so I'm good with that.
I'd like to see them at least give it a shot. I think they're about the same size, and it wouldn't hurt to try for a couple series, especially in this game.
Have to agree with the officiating. That fumble was obvious enough that they should have called it and looked for the recovery on the field. Way easier to reverse a called fumble than the other way around. Then, their second TD came on the most blatant block in the back I've ever seen, with no call. Then we missed on a huge third down on another no-call pass interference. I'm sure we got away with a little bit too, but I didn't see any big plays that we got because of a no-call. Just needed one of those FGs too, or Corey Smith catching a couple of his drops, and it would be a totally different game. Not saying the Buckeyes played any sort of great, because they didn't, but that was a winnable game.
I think it's similar to what they did with Hyde when he came back from suspension last year. I don't think it's a warning so much as he missed game time, so they're not just going to throw him in as a starter. I'd be surprised if he didn't start against Cincy though.
This at least makes Saturday feel better. Six former Buckeyes either starting or seeing decent playing time as rookies.
My thoughts exactly. At least he was back there to mop up for everyone else.
I love how seriously Urban takes being at OSU. Bonus for us with a top-tier coach who is exactly where he wants to be.
Now I want to go to an NFL game just for the food.
If he continues to improve and stays healthy, he ought to be the highest Buckeye draft pick in years after next season, or the one after if he decides to stay for four years.
