I don't see anyone questioning Lukes dedication to the program. We are aware of his contributions and know him as a capable DC (co-DC to be specific). However the issues we are seeing in the secondary are a product of the pressure or lack there of by the linebackers.
Well said. Fickell is the DC however his strategy has changed under Urban. He lacks the experience running this type of defense, and is not able to utilize the type of players being brought in.
Change the scheme or find someone else to run it.
Stop the loose (5-8 yrds.) coverage on the outside. I know this is a result of CB being out however find somebody you can trust to play safety.
While upper classmen and returning starters have experience this group is lacking something. After week 3 the need to play more underclassmen was evident. #97 proves this point.
Big #63 is invaluable
Most entertaining skully of the year, thanks DJ.
Thanks Sarah, good luck moving forward.
Best part of the Saban photo bomb is wearing white in the first row.
Defense win championships.
Heads up for anybody attending tonights game at UD Arena:
Won't the electronic tracking devises be detrimental to play calling? If this info is shared on a conference level each team will receive a blueprint of their opponets play formations. While this techonolgy has been used for years in soccer I see it harmful to football.
Now I understand why Bama and the rest of the SEC practice oversiging. It accounts for players lost to criminal activity.
Thanks for all the drama JT, best of luck w/ FLA.
Heres to getting one blocked!
Todays coverage has been outstanding, thanks 11W!
That Glee is still defending the missed opportunity to self impose speaks volumes. Until we hear otherwise from the NCAA Smith and Glee cost this school a shot at the national title.
Great to have you back Elika, T.G.I.F
So because the teams costumes this week do not include helmet stickers old #36 will remain the only player to have his entire helmet filled with leaves for a game. Miller would have been close however we will never get a chance to see. Not all change is good ladies and gents.
Interesting to see that the years of OSU dominance over scUM (JT era) has eroded the rivalry. While scUM will always be atop my chart it's tough to call a team that has flat out sucked for the last decade a competitive rival. Hence the new found hatred for Whisky, they are competitive, and the head coach is a douche.
Chad or Boxley, for point of reference what are the Buckeyes current Quickstrike/sand numbers?Great stuff guys keep up the good work.
You did not realize that OSU would recieve at least 1 post season ban after the backlash of the Tat5 playing against the Hogs in the Sugar bowl?
Again, G.Smith and the Ath. Dept. were asleep at the wheel.
Don't we get to play in the B10 championship game?
Maybe it will take going 13-0 (not overlooking the scUM game of course) and having nothing to show for it to get some answers from G.Smith.
We dropped the ball???
G.Smith was asleep at the wheel and did not self impose. Hell even the U had this tatic figured out. With evey win the Bucks earn the heat should be turned up on Smith. As AD did he ever explain why his office was not proactive and take action?
3 days in a row, I need to say something. I believe the picture of the girl advertising the "Meh" t-shirt needs some air brushing. Wow!
Eddie George hours untill kickoff.
Did I just read a Skully containing no ESPin links, well done Chris.
Brandon Sain days until Buckeye football.
Kurt Coleman days to kickoff.
