Until we use the TE position to catch more passes, we will continue to lose out on the really good recruits. The position is used more often as a receiver, as opposed to a blocker, than under Tress, but the role needs to evolve further before the elite prospects consider OSU more consistently.
And the hits just keep on coming....
Over the past decade I have become more of a "conference" fan, by caring more about how the B1G's reputation affects the Buckeyes. That was a product of the BCS environment more than anything, but I will still continue to care about the B1G now in the Playoff era. That being said, I suppose my desire should be for scUM to make a good hire in the inevitable HC search that will soon ensue...but I just can't seem to subscribe to the better scUM, better B1G philosophy.
I like it when they suck.
I wonder if Buck-I-Guy got a free t-shirt for his appearance?
(Note: Don't tell him I used his "name" on here, I can't afford his fee)
Smith will still contribute, and I am sharing the opinion with those that think this will serve as a wake-up call. However, it is obvious that Thomas is the better, more well-rounded received at this point.
Have to agree, it's the drops, plus just being a "one-pitch" pitcher limits your effectiveness. I'm sure we'll still see plenty of Devin...as long as he holds on to the ball.
Congrats to Thomas, he has earned the spot.
Likeable doesn't win games...see yaaaaaaa.
Good to know the first comment involved this sentence...way to stay on point.
And for footwear...I think I wore those in 1988.
Safe to say, they get anywhere close to this number the rest of the season and we win that game every time. Very impressive distribution within the numbers.
Great write-up Michael, well done.
Done, and thank you!
Yes, I suppose I should edit my original post to infer that reading trainwreck blog posts can be very entertaining, just do not engage with the Darwin Award winners who are posting.
The VT game was a combination of bad line play & even worse coaching. Meyer fully admitted after the game that they were not prepared for that defense & the team never could adjust successfully. Unfortunate, but what's done is done. Not gonna beat a dead & rotting horse corpse here and re-hash the VT performance any further. Only want to say that the offense is good, and working on great at this point. Doubtful that a team can do what VT did now that the line has gelled, and Barrett is in full command of the playbook.
GO BUCKS, wreck the Terps!
Never read the comments outside of Eleven Warriors dot com.
So true. Against my better judgement, assisted by my companion Mr. Bulleit, I entered into a cyber "discussion" with a Clemson fan earlier this season...
This advice from DJ also protects you from the reality that there is a large demographic in this country who would rather argue about nothing, than do anything at all....depressing.
So, I digress...GO BUCKS!
I might even put Wisky second at this point, but I think the Buckeyes will end up on top by December.
Yes, I have man-crushed his guns, I'll admit it. No wonder he blocks the shit outta everybody!
Too bad with Baker, but I agree he might flip with coaching change at Florida.
And yes, Torance Gibson??
My guess is they will play a safety deeper most plays to take away the bomb, unless they start getting burned by screens & running plays. Terps only averaged 3.4 a carry for 123 versus Indiana, so I would certainly hope we can contain their running game. They also only converted 5 out of 14 1st downs, so again, I would think we can contain they're offense. However, that is what I thought every week this season so far...
And of course Indiana beat Mizzou, an $EC powerhouse, and then were handled 37-15 by the almightyTerps, so conventional wisdom says we should get dominated....right?
Nice break-down Kyle, thank you. And Wilson owes you an up-vote for helping him with his case for more touches.
He looks more than comfortable running this offense. Hopefully his receivers get better at catching the ball, then he can really throw up some impressive stats!@
Hahaha nice ^^^
Why don't we ask Mark May...??
Of course not, they beat a legitimate title contender in South Carolina...and moved into the Top 25.
Never considered Grant as a DE...interesting. Playing best 11 does indeed include Kwon & Curtis Grant both on the field, since Spence is not available.
The other piece of this puzzle is the D-line (IMO). Bosa is getting doubled up constantly, and the bulldozers in the middle are getting pressure, but not enough to affect the better QB's we face. Plain and simple, we are missing Spence more than I expected. They need to get somebody on the edge that can speed rush, so I guess we are missing both Spence and Shazier in that regard. I volunteer Holmes and Lewis to join the party more, especially on obvious passing downs.
Not sure, but we missed an opportunity to slip Antoine Winfield in there for a play or four on Saturday...nobody would have known, except for the fact that he would have prevented ALL of those long plays!
