Thanks! I re-watched and I STILL didn't see the rumored "schematic advantage" Oklahoma was bringing to bear!
My question is why were so many JT runs the inside option vs. the outside option on zone read? Samuel can run inside or outside and Weber is a wrecking ball!
It only came to my attention because Palmer used it 5 times in a game.
And, where else are you gonna stick your foot?

Totally agree. I was at the Navy game in 2014 and my impression was Samuel was the better back. It took Zeke a while to get comfortable trusting his instincts and getting his timing right. Weber seems to be more comfortable in there after three games.
With the spotlight shining on Louisville and Houston the way it is, the media is building a case for one of those two teams. The undefeated winner of that game - and I assume Louisville beats Clemson based on what I've seen on the field - gets in.
I've been impressed with how Weber always seems to be so close to breaking one long. He has had So many shoestring tackles in the first 3 games. It seems like a matter of time.
On another note, can we retire "sticks his foot in the ground" already as a catchphrase? Herby and Palmer already wore that one out the past two weekends...
LSU was supposed to get its braces off and clear up its acne this summer, right?
Nope, still ugly
I would upvote Cletus if I could...
Based on returning starters, I am OK with this list. The best thing is, with our talent level, everyone will be asking "Who are these guys?"
I like your enthusiasm! Getting psyched about the season!
I totally agree with the above comments. I always heard about the CEO approach and not knowing the players names, but the thing that stood out watching Cooper's teams is that they seemed to be really bad at scouting themselves. They didn't evolve as the season went on and teams caught on to OSU's tendencies.
There was a CFB announcer last year - don't remember which - who used "sticks his foot in the ground" regularly, as in "watch him stick his foot in the ground and make that cut".
Where else is he gonna stick his foot?
This ^ I am old enough to remember. Pete Johnson was money in short yardage
Looking around the net for objectivity, NFL's draft profile for EZE gives him a 7.2. Gurley was a 6.3. Thinking about what that means and it probably means nothing. The question is whether some team will fall in love with a guy's body of work and potential.
Who still uses a FAX MACHINE?
I have the same impression that they didn't run it as much. I'd like the X's and O's guys to weigh in: was it personnel, results - like BuckeyeCity says - or are we seeing a shift/evolution of Urban Meyer's offense?
Tim Biakabatuka. I was in the Big House for a coronation that never happened
I like Herby, but he does have a tendency to put his foot in his mouth sometimes. Case in point:
Being a Ravens fan, I saw a lot of Simon in the pre-season and I thought he did enough to make the active roster. The Ravens are very deep at linebacker though where they had him projected. I love the fact he's playing even if it isn't for my team!
