There is a certain amount of discernment that goes into it, I agree. If everyone in your section is sitting at a game vs. FAMU and the bucks are up 50, then sure, sit your butt down. Otherwise, stand and cheer!!

Sounds like double speak to me, they'll say one thing to avoid the outrage but then do another once you're in the stadium. I know for a fact there are ushers that will enforce the no standing "policy" and if you refuse (because afterall, there is no rule against standing) then they will call the authorities. Bunch of BS if you ask me.

Go Shelley Meyer. The voice of reason once again. She stood up for the fans on this matter and when it came to Spring Game ticket prices as well.

Hopefully depth on the D-Line and Johnson's willingness to substitute frequently will help with some of the conditioning issues on the D-Line. It seemed Vrabel took more of an NFL approach and left the starters in but I think at the college level, this is a mistake - especially with the athletes we have on the line.

It seems our defense will be more aggressive this year which will be a welcome sight. I don't even care if there are coverage breakdowns if it means we're playing full speed, attacking the ball, and wreaking havoc on opponents. There were way too many coverage breakdowns last year while playing a soft defense so I'd like to think the change in scheme will help pressure the offense into mistakes even if we don't have all the mental errors cleared up due to implementing a new system.

Re: TGII, I think you're overstating his lack of elusiveness. Compared to his sprinting speed, his elusiveness may have looked pedestrian but he faked some guys out of their shoes during his time here. I remember specifically a play against the other OSU in a bowl game where he juked a few guys and sprinted all the way back across the field for a big play.

He could have played better against Wisconsin. Obviously we won the game so it's a moot point (i.e. the defensive game plan worked albeit having given up some big pass plays). In the NFL, a shut down corner is going to be expected to shut down the other teams best receiver, especially if that receiver is especially good. I think Abbrederis could be a serviceable NFL receiver so Roby having to cover him with little help over the top was good experience for him. Should we cut him some slack because he's not often asked to do that? Perhaps. But I don't think it's unfair to say he made some mistakes in that game.

What impressed me most in the GIF's above was Roby's closing speed. He was significantly faster than any of the guys (NW or tOSU) running the field on that play.

That's what I got out of watching that GIF as well. WOW. What speed. When they say that Roby is probably the fastest on the team, it's no surprise after seeing that. I think that will stand out to scouts watching film on him. You can teach him up on technique but you can't teach that closing speed.

Wow, OSU still ranked 7 in the compiled poll. What a load of crap and what a worthless poll.
