I though that Ball was the surprise at RB. I think he showed "Hyde" power and was consistently taking mulitple tacklers forward on several plays. He also was pretty quick to the edge. I still have yet to be impressed with Dunn. Either way the position overall will be pretty solid next year.

Additionally the defense as a whole looked good. However, these spring games give more advantage to defense than offense in my opinion. You can just tell the offense isnt all on the same page quite yet, but it takes more time to get to that point.... much more than just 2 weeks. It is fairly easy for a defense to play cohesively with 2 weeks practicing and only playing in a base defense.

PSU is flying high on a depleted rooster and early playing time for recruits. This "hot streak" will level out very soon and still leave PSU middle of the group in the B1G. Not to mentioned Franklin will be gone in 4 yrs or less.

Comment 04 Apr 2014

This! Not to discredit Franklins abilities to recruit. But the biggest thing working against OSU and helping PSU is playing time early. There is no kids going to PSU that legit thinks he is going to win a Championship or beat OSU in the next 4 yrs. They are going for playing time, period.

I wish our coaching staff would just move on without being told no by TG. This way we look at better prospects and it comes across like we want the next prospect, not that we are settling for the next prospect. He is a great athlete and all but he is way to attracted to spotlight for my liking, and as mentioned by others I think we need a game manager with all the weapons we have. I dont see why we need a running QB who can kinda throw decent.

Comment 02 Apr 2014

Great points and completely agree. Any team would love to have a back who can get you 1+ yd 99% of the time.... the hurt still remains why we didnt follow this logic on the 4th and 1 against MSU in B1G Champ game...

Comment 01 Apr 2014

Agreed. Miller is the best throwing QB we have had since Troy Smith, and Smith might have been one, if not the, best passer in OSU history. Miller can throw very well, he just needs to work on pre-play reads and checking down... it comes with time. Even Smith was questionable until he blew up his senior year.

Comment 01 Apr 2014

I agree it worked out pretty well... but we aren't looking for "pretty well" we are looking for championships. I believe a quiet confident Krenzel has one up on  show-me-the-money Pryor. If Gibson is already loving the spotlight now, what is he going to be like when he gets here. I can appreciate confidence, but humility is just as important, especially as a team leader at the QB position.

Don't quite understand all the articles down playing Wilsons play last year. He was a freaking freshman and did just fine. He had areas that needed improvement but everything come across like he is this big "bust" and to be honest our offense was perfectly equiped to work without him. Hes got a lot of potential and we have a good year this upcoming season once he becomes more complete aka blocking

Comment 31 Mar 2014

If we don't get Hillard we might as well fold up camp and not even try having a recruiting class for 2015.

Although Clarett was a beast for one year I cannot discredit the other guys who were able to stay the course for more than just one year. Not to diminsih anything Clarett did, but there is much more to be said for the guys that had careers not just a season.  What could have been, doesn't really count in my book.

 

Comment 25 Mar 2014

Are we really already starting these dumpster fires?!? I am also very concerned why we have such a slow start for our 2016 class, would have figured we should have at least 10 five star guys by now... grab the pitch forks!!!!

Comment 25 Mar 2014

I guess I just dont understand basketball, but it seems rather logical to me that if your're not dominating college ball then you probably arent ready for the next leve. Just my 2 cents, but he showed some big inconsistencies in his shooting. Although he did improve defensively I am just not seeing how he will do well at the next level.

Comment 24 Mar 2014

Unfortunately TP will not be playing anywhere. He is a freak of an athlete, but just not good enough to be an NFL QB... mostly due to his terrible mechanics and sub par pass reading ability. It would be fun to see him in a option type offense, but being freakishly athletic is equalized at the next level when technique is significantly more important.

Comment 25 Feb 2014

Yea. this doesnt even make sense. They are literally the same size. Although I think Dennard is a better cover CB there is not as big disparity between the two as this ignorant review shows. Quite comical...

Comment 24 Feb 2014

Yes I get the point. But to be "dominant" one season doesn't equate to much of anything. He had a good soph year and that was it. I am not saying that kind of season is easy to have, but there are always anomolies. 1 out of 3 years is hardly consistent performance that equates to dominating.... or fortelling of dominating at the next level.

Comment 24 Feb 2014

The interesting thing to me is, outside his size and athleticisim, what has he really done that is earth shattering?! As mentioned, he had a very good year as a soph, but to be honest a lot of athletes are able to have a good year, its coming back and doing it again that shows how good you really are. Poeple were able to key on him and they gave him adversity that he never overcame this past year. How do we know Shazier is the real deal... he got better each year even when people knew how good he was. Clowney digressed, so outside of just his stature why are coaches drueling over an athlete that has shown: lack of work ethic, lack of consistent ability on the field, lack of technique, and overall a sense of arrogance and entitlement. What about a player like that is intersting for any coach to bring on a team?!

Comment 24 Feb 2014

If thats true, than even more reason to pass on him. Talent will only get you so far at the next level. The guys that excel are the ones that have the never ending motor. Clowney wasnt even able to get by many double teams in college, what do you think will happen in the NFL?! Without any doubt he has the tangibles to be great, but I think he is his own worst enemy. I dont see him being as dominant, some good plays here in there, but not a game changing player. Unless he pulls his head out of his ass and realized his ability is only going to take him so far at the next level.
