The other question that I thought was interesting and took Urban by surprise, and he either couldn't or wouldn't answer was:

I'm paraphrasing - "if JT is better in the red zone, why wouldn't he be better all the time"

Urban laughed and said "good question" and then didn't answer the question.

I'm shocked that there are people on this board who say that SCUM hasn't played anyone of importance or skill thus they are not afraid of them. 

Really? We've played a shittier schedule and haven't been nearly as good, actually quite awful at times. 

People are such homers sometimes. You can't play both sides of that coin when one is more convenient than the other.

Alabama, LSU, Baylor 

Texas A&M and Oklahoma would probably beat us too. We have no consistency on offense, our run D has been suspect, and our pass coverage is good, except for the drive prolonging PIs that we haven't been able to avoid since 2013. 

Last year we had the same problems with turnovers and stupid penalties, but our offense was so efficient and high powered, we were able to overcome them. This year? other than Zeke breaking long runs, our offense is shit.

People around here just don't want to admit that schedules and play quality do matter. Yes, it is about winning, and we have done that. We were champions last year and as long as someone beats us, we are going to be #1. 

Then again, Florida State played shitty football for the entire year last year, and the only thing they had on their side is the exact same argument I just made above. Then they limped into the playoffs and got embarrassed. I love my buckeyes. I bleed scarlet and grey, but right now, we are NOT the best team in the country. It doesn't take a genius to see that. Right now there are 3-4 teams that I think would kill us if we played right now. Good thing, we don't play them right now. All it matters is how we play in the playoffs, but RIGHT NOW, we are not the best team in the country based on the quality of the product on the field.

Actually it is a coaching issue. Throwing picks can be bad decisions and it could very well be offensive formation, route running, and the inconsistent flow and horrible run game can put QBs in a position where they feel they need to sling it to convert downs. 

False starts are a discipline and an offensive rhythm issue as well.

Don't get me started on fumbles. We have consistently been a horrible team when it comes to fumbling, and it's not just one or two people, it's everyone, from last year to this year. I'm not sure what type of fumbling drills we do or don't, but it IS a problem

This isn't all on the coaches, but they take equal accountability for sure.

Good job Bert! 

Forgot Toledo was a top 5 team, your schedule is brutal

Comment 12 Sep 2015

the kid looks to be seriously injured.....hope he's ok, hate seeing that stuff

Comment 13 Aug 2015

Never like hearing something like that when it comes to these kids. Before any rivalry talk, it's all about the health of these kids, and stuff like this just sucks. Keep your head up young man, you'll be back and look forward to kicking your ass on the football field once your healthy!

How more safeties do you think the staff wants? If its only one, who gets in between Pryts and Fuller? Do they both get in if they want in?

Comment 07 May 2015

Would Chad Clay be surprising as Birm said? Maybe......but I'm thinking it someone else. 

Ok, there goes work productivity until I find out. 

Comment 05 May 2015

And from the recent crystal balls on 247 it seems he's going to Penn State which makes this hurt even more....ugghhhh! 

If that happens I think it would've been a move heavily influenced by the depth chart.  If you went to West Virginia at least you could say he went to play with his brother but PSU??   He knows where the new linebacker U, right? 

Oh well good luck kid! 

Comment 18 Mar 2015

Yes, it is early, but usually Birm doesn't jump the gun on stuff and if he truly felt it was too early to call or it was still 50-50, he would have waited, especially with a recruit from Ohio who is this highly ranked. He must have gotten some solid information that he feels gives OSU very unfavorable odds, not impossible, at getting him.
