10000% agreed. I understand coaches hate fumbles, but he didn't even have a carry until mid way through the second quarter. so he had no rhythm, feel for the game at all. Not to mention he ran his ass off, and one of the fumbles I believe hit a knee or something like that in which no RB at any level could have held on. I might be making excuses, but Weber is not a habitual fumbler, and I gave more blame to coaches for not having a plan to let him ease into the biggest game of his young career.

As long as the Buckeyes can bring the momentum from the B1G tournament they should perform very well. I was fortunate to catch a couple of their dual meets throughout the season and although they have talent they lost a couple duals because they didn't get those last second or close point victories. At the B1G tournament they closed matches very well, so long they continue that toughness they will finish very well if not on top.

For me, I think there is no issue with a kid not going to a camp to earn an offer. If he is comfortable with his potential opportunities that have made effort to win him over why try to convince someone they need you, unless you are coveting that specific offer. It doesn't make a kid any less driven or mean they are unwilling to work, its a two way street and for some kids they need more commitment from a school then "come and earn your offer", when they have other schools that see their value from an on field production stand point.

Not sure if this is a random general statement or directed at Asamoah, but I don't recall him saying he would not camp at OSU. Per both articles his top schools include the programs that he has had the closest communication with, and nothing about refusing to camp or try to earn offers.

Kid is super athletic and will only get better this year. I just asked a buddy of mine about him recently, who is very close to Asamoah. He said he would love an OSU offer but for him its all about relationship. Although Fickell at UC was presumed to be the favorite, I was told he is most likely leaning towards Penn St right now, and once he commits there is very little chance he will change his mind.

why is everyone so fixated on getting a "big name" DT. DT has not been a lacking position for OSU for a very long time as far as production on field. We may not have show stoppers, but they have performed very adequately and even well for several years. Someone please tell me the last time we lost in the trenches due to lack of talent at DT?!

You are forgetting T. Sprinkle being back from injury which should be huge. I think our DL will be good enough to compensate for a lack of experience at MLB. As for Hubbard, he is a DE, he would not do well at MLB... too tall and not fast enough IMO. Not saying he is slow overall, just not the speed or agility needed at the MLB position. Hubbard is going to ball out at DE this year.

Comment 11 Jan 2017

I felt the same way. It seemed like he had doubts, like every teenager will have making this big of a decision. To be honest my candid thought after this video was he had some hesitation with the big decision, and a coach (NEB most likely) really took advantage of the situation and drove home his insecurities. I hope thats not to case. I would hate to think an adult would manipulate a teenager in an emotional decision, and should be there for support... but D1 coaches all have their own agenda. 

Comment 11 Jan 2017

Agreed.... pretty sure everyone was wondering how we were going to replace Bell, and Apple... and even Powell this past season and that turned out ok.

Comment 10 Jan 2017

All 3 of those teams have more loses and the same or zero National Championships then OSU in last 5 years. My point remains, not having a Big Name Big DT hasn't damaged OSU... we have faired well with our talent on the DL and our wins and success prove just that, not to mention consistently being a top tier rush defense. Even in the game we just lost, it was not due to DTs. People need to stop being so infatuated with a top position ranking player. It is overrated IMO.

Comment 10 Jan 2017

Although we may have missed on big name DT recruits I would hardly say DL or DT have been a weakness for OSU in the past few years. We may not have 1st Round talent, but Johnson has done a hell of a job prepping a team of DT to rotate and play solid. They may not be game changers, but they are not losing games for us either.

Comment 10 Jan 2017

Dabo is definitely a good coach, but having a QB like Watson changes everything. Now if Clemson can continue without him it will really show the level of coach Dabo is, but I anticipate a drop off.

Comment 04 Jan 2017

I hope he sticks around so he can benefit from better game plans next year. It was amazing to see what he could do with the crap cards he was dealt this year. Next year he could surpass 2000 yds. If we had more weapons show cased in offense with proper play calling, defenses cant just key on him every play allowing him to have more opportunity for big plays.

Comment 03 Jan 2017

That's the nice way of saying it... I was going to call them ungrateful pricks... I usually go over to Mgoblog to watch this kind of mindless melt down.

Comment 03 Jan 2017

I'd rather have a QB whos stats are top notch where it matters... the W column! I could care less how many TDs he throws and how ugly they look. He gets the job done on the field more so than any other QB in college football, not to mention the most prolific in OSU history.... but people on here want to say he is not good enough. Have we really become this jaded and ungrateful?!?

Comment 03 Jan 2017

How many big games did they win again? Count me as one who doesn't care about bloated stats against subpar teams. What did they do when it mattered... Martinez and Beck alike were choke artists.
