Did anyone else watch Houston v Navy today.  Can we have that offense?  Aggressive using all the tools and skills...   I'm sure our Buckeyes have it in them.  Go Bucks.  Screw the Blue.

Comment 24 Nov 2015

Position coaching.  That's what it is all about.  Coaches developing skills in the kids that they didnt even know they had.  Then putting it all together in a cogent, cohesive game plan that utilizes those skills to overcome the opponent's known strengths and takes advantages of any weaknesses.  Throw in a ton of commitment and a few innovations and what do you have?  Dantonio?  That tricky bastard used us and threw us away.  

NOW we must be even more innovative this week.  **ichigan is not set of pushovers as their stats prove.  They have great coaching.  Our masterminds (where have they been, where are you when we needed you Tom Herman?) must prove that they are up to the challenge and use the talent we have (and we have a ton of talent) to take the game to the skunk weazels.  Hope the coaches are up to it.  I know the kids are with great leadership.  Saw it last year under adversity and expect to see it again.  Come on Urban, make it so.

Comment 23 Nov 2015

And why don't our O coaches engage in the same tactics? Still learning dirty tricks from the M scum? I wouldn't encourage them to do so but to be prepared for all their underhanded tricks.  I have always thought well of Dantomio until this point. Now screw him with the Blue.

A slight shift in topic - sorry - but does anyone know Game Time for the MSU GAME ?  All I can find is TBD - Hey, its time to lock down some travel arrangements !

"a clunky fit within this year's personnel and play calling". 

Sometimes I just scratch my head and wonder "why did they call that"?  (Or I end up yelling at my TV).....

Cardale has talent, but sometimes the play calling should recognize those talents (and those of the 10 other players out there) and cater to the situation.  Just sayin'

Comment 31 Oct 2015

Seems like Cardale did better last year when he had to step in and just get the job done - without over thinking it - without any anxiety of who would be the real leader.  In his starts this year it seemed that there was too much over thinking about each snap - missing that free flow from his big 4 performances on the way to the NC.  Hope he can now just go out and get his jive on and be natural again.  Love both these guys and they joy they can both bring to the game.

Comment 20 Oct 2015

I will forever love Cardale for his mastery of the last 4 games last year.  The kid was an absolute stud and took a no nonsense hold of the situation and produced some incredible wins for TOSU.  Love that 12 guage arm!

I also love JT and his ability to guide the team (last year!) and this year too.  

Together they are an unbeatable combo at QB (OK add some Brax into that mix too).

Urbs is wise to keep them all in the braces to have them hot and ready to join in every game.  This is not about a popularity contest - its all about who can get the particular job done at the moment and to apply their unique skills when called upon.  

Comment 04 Oct 2015

Poor execution influences play calling (among other factor) and poor play calling affects execution and even amplifies poor execution.  We have a deadly combination of both, but are still winning.  But we have to break this negative feedback cycle with improvements on both execution and intelligent play calling - and IMO the play calling needs the most work - and if fixed it will enhance execution markedly

Comment 03 Oct 2015

But if you areca great team you sieze the.e day early and demoralize the opponent - you don't let them hang in there and come back - let's just blow them away like we did with Whisky last year.  Yes they will all b.ring their be?st to play OSU but we also have to bring our best and rip their he.arts out - this team is not doing that - yet......

Comment 03 Oct 2015

Kodos to Indiana for giving us a game - and we let them.  I cringe every time Jones calls his own number which he is still too eager to do. Glad we escaped with this win. But a win is a win even if we don't cover the spread.

Comment 26 Sep 2015

AZ I would say that JT coming in coldvshould have had a few warm up high percentage safe plays to run before asking him to throw onto tight coverage. Give him a chance to get in his groove - but whoever is calling the plays forgot that

Comment 21 Sep 2015

Didnt give me the option of moving to ESPN2 - started on ABC then just dropped and was not on any of the ESPN channels.

Hard to watch on that sports mix small frame - but that's all I had.  Grrrrr.

Comment 19 Sep 2015

Couldn't agree more. UFM says the O line is the foundation of our game but it is not coming together - time to ask what role the coaching assignments have to do with that.  All is not lost but changes are needed now.

Comment 19 Sep 2015

I am still searching for an organizing philosophy on the offensive play calling - we are not playing to our strengths because we have no consistent approach to play rhythm that can unify the O line and then the rest of the offense.  Hope the coaches step back and look at how they are using the available talent and find a sweet spot to operate from with consistency - Herman figured it out last year - these guys need to do it soon.  I don't think it has a whit to do with who is the chosen one at QB  - that's a distraction and an excuse.  Come up with a core offensive philosophy that fits the great talent we have and we will be OK

First, DO NOT ADD WATER. If you use any water you are going to have to live with the smell for a long time.

Second, make a loose paste with Hydrogen Peroxide, Dish Soap, and Baking Soda.

Rub into areas where the skunk spunk hit the dog.  Avoid getting any of the mix in the dog's eyes - use some mineral oil drops in the eyes if the skunk got the dog in the face.

Good luck with that.
