  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Buckeyes NC certainly is hard to beat, but I think I had 14 heart attacks that year. One great moment at a Buckeye football game was when my father-in-law and I were running late, and, as we were sliding over to sit in our seats, Ted Ginn caught a pass and ran down the sideline for a touchdown.

In the end, nothing would surprise me in these playoffs.  While I can see how Oregon might be a bit overrated, I'm not really convinced FSU is all that great either.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Agreed not only about Darron, but the LBs have progressed nicely as a unit.  I think Darron and Raekwon will be outstanding assuming they keep progressing.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

I can see Oregon going up early, and this would be one team FSU can't rally against.

Comment 31 Aug 2014

While I think Curtis looked great, I still have to vote for Zeke.  Let's not forget how much the OL struggled in the first half, and that affected the RB too.  Then there was the poor decision by J.T. to pitch it to Zeke when he shouldn't have.  I'm not ready to crown any other RB better than Zeke just yet.

Comment 31 Aug 2014

I didn't notice the defender being blocked, but it was bothering that nobody seemed to be covering the pitch man for a large part of the game.  Thanks for that explanation.  As for the player assigned to the QB, I felt that player generally succeeded on his assignment.  Still, the Defense still showed some poor tackling and allowed far too many big plays.  In the end, I still think they gave up too many rushing yards for me to feel comfortable.

The Offense clearly played better in the second half, and let's hope it only continues as the inexperienced OL gets better as the season progresses.  J.T. clearly made some redshirt freshman mistakes as well, but I'd like to think he'll learn from those mistakes and not make them again.  I love the number of Offensive threats we have, although there was the one big missed pass that I think Dontre should have caught.  Regardless, it was the first game, and I'd like to think some of the bad things that happened are now out of their system.

We'll see how the Passing Defense does next week.  Here's hoping for a great game.

My DirecTV plan does not include CBSSN, although they are giving a free preview of the package that DOES include CBSSN through this weekend, so I could watch the game from home if I hadn't already planned to watch at a bar with friends.

Comment 27 Aug 2014

Most of the "or" designations weren't surprising, but nice to see some young talent on the two deep.  Those young guys could definitely see some time in the first few games if things get a little out of hand.  Cannot wait until Saturday...

Comment 26 Aug 2014

I had already had plans to meet up with some friends, but I will definitely check channel 221 when I get home to see if I have it.  That would be awesome.

Comment 22 Aug 2014

Very good stuff.  Interesting that Kyle and Brady are the first two OL in this class to lose their stripes.

Comment 31 Jul 2014

It's difficult not to say Devin Smith, but it's almost an embarrassment of riches (or at least potential) at the position with Dontre, Mike Thomas, Corey Smith, Johnny Dixon, Jalin Marshall, not to mention Jeff Heuerman.  This really should be an exciting year to watch assuming the OL steps up and the DBs are greatly improved as expected.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

He averaged 8.1 yards per carry and 9.5 yards per reception, and most of his receptions were shorter passes.  Yes, he needs to get a little bigger and much better at blocking, but he was quite effective.  Opposing Defenses seemed to think he was dangerous or they wouldn't have targeted him when he was in the game.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

I'm sure I've forgotten a few players (like Worley), but I haven't forgotten that Bogard has had season ending injuries in his first two seasons.  I hope he fully recovers, but that remains to be seen.

OL - This is the biggest question mark, but I do believe in Warinner to coach them up.  I wouldn't be surprised if they struggle a little early on, but they'll get it together during the season.  I think Decker, Elflein, and Boren will start, and the big question marks are who will start along with them?  Dodson?  Lisle?  Underwood?  Price?  Trout?  Jones?  Knox?

WR - We now have so much young talent at this position, I feel like it's about time for them to prove they're a force to be reckoned with.  Corey Smith?  Marshall?  Thomas?  Clark?  Dixon?  Samuel?

RB - Again, some quality depth here, although I expect EzE to be the primary RB.  Still, the competition should be fierce.

QB - I fully expect Braxton to be more consistent.  He was fantastic mis-season 2013, so I'd like to think he can do that consistently.  I think the competition for the backup will be fierce, but my gut feeling is Barrett will win that spot.

DL - Exciting young players with a new coach.

LB - Again, we need some of the young talent to step up, but the depth keeps improving.  Perry may be a lock, but I think Grant will be challenged.  Mitchell?  McMillan?  Johnson?  Williams?  Booker?

CB - I think Doran and Armani will need to be beaten, and I do still feel both can and will improve.  Still, I think Apple, Conley, and others are going to make it very competitive.

S - Bell, Powell, and Burrows.  That sounds like quality to me, and there will be some good depth building behind them as well.  Plus, they have a new coach to prepare them.

I'll be curious who calls the shots on D, but I'm optimistic it will greatly improve.  I feel confident our coaches will have our guys prepared and ready to play.
