Comment 15 Mar 2017

If he earns time than great, but I see him as only getting a few carries a game unless he really breaks out. This is Weber's baby for the most part. I imagine McCall gets some carries from the backfield and so does Williams. Dobbins has a good chance of working himself in though. 

Would not shock me if they took a few WR out of the backfield looks either. I really like Dobbins but it is alot to ask. 

Comment 09 Mar 2017

He is a good QB. He has looked uneasy for sure, but how much of that is him, playcalling, young guys around him is hard to say. There are games OSU would have lost unless he did what he did. We remember the bad things but often forget the good. I would like to see some of the young guys get a shot but it is hard to argue that he is not the guy. 

Comment 04 Mar 2017

Everybody deserves a shot at a higher education if they want the chance. Not everybody can crack it but many can if they take it seriously and put effort into it. Really, how much college costs in general is crazy. OSU is not exempt from that. And college is important to get higher paying jobs. 

Comment 04 Mar 2017

Good for him, not sure why this should matter so much. The guy is a good RB and should be a high pick. How fast he can run without pads should matter too much. 

I watched a little earlier and they were comparing RBs to Zeke. Even if guys run faster, it does not mean that they will be half as good as he is. Zeke is the whole package. 

Comment 03 Mar 2017

Really, a good ground game is still critical. Just not in vogue. Many teams take the elite QB and passing attack route, and that is honestly great. Particularly with how the rules are now. But get a decent line and a good back and cut that high flying teams chances and rythem and it can go south for that sort of team fast. 

There will always be a place for elite level backs and Zeke is one of a kind. 

Comment 01 Mar 2017

It worked a few times, but never for particularly large gains and mostly for losses. Particularly the fault of the other team being at the line to stop predictable plays only coming from the line. 

Comment 01 Mar 2017

Mack is a bit more of a question at starter. I hope he gets a ton of time and works his way into the starter role, but not sure from the get go. I think Victor and Hill are the only for sure out of the gate. The others, who knows?

Terms of the classic stuff Norse mythology. Be it the Thor comics or the recorded legends. They are good.

Comment 01 Mar 2017

Sounds good to me. Seems like getting another back would not be a bad idea for depth, but really most positions can say that. Seems like there are a few Ohio kids on the way though. Just depends on when they declare. As Ohio has a number of very good, nationally recognized, good in particularly this year.

Comment 28 Feb 2017

Possible, but I doubt it. At least not all drafted. A few of them will be. The rest will be picked up. Sort of depends on how the guys look this year and so on. I do not know if that draft will be deep on the defensive line or not. OSU's line is scary deep this year. To the point where some guys probably will not get the time they would otherwise call for, but there should be no reason for the line not to be wearing down offensive lines all years. As there should be little drop off in terms of talent between the starters and backups. Even the guys after that are insanely talented.

Comment 28 Feb 2017

Not really shocking, but should be a good fit. He did great with the secondary. Fickle will be missed. The guys energy was just outstanding and the kids played hard for him. LB improved quite a bit and he just did great at his job. Hard guy to replace. Hope he can carry on with the defense being elite.

Hopefully, this year the offense will take a step or two forward and enter the elite status that this guy helped put the defense on (or maintained).

Comment 28 Feb 2017

If there are years where they do not, probably not a big deal. In general it is important to control the home court and form relationships with local programs. Ohio is rich in talent. It might not be florida, Cali or Texas but it is up there. It has the most talent in the midwest for sure. OSU is well set to get the good and great talent at home and then fight in the battle grounds for great players too.

Comment 28 Feb 2017

I do not think he is a great passer but I think he is a good one. He has looked better than he did most of last year for sure. Even in games where he had good stats last year he was late and held on too long. He is a very good college QB, probably a great one.

As for guys behind him being better. It depends in what way you mean. They probably have better throwing arms and tools but not sure if they will pan out or not. Barrett does win games consistently. He looked bad in the playoff game against Clemson but the team mostly did there. I hope to see Haskins get a chance to start and play as well, but there are a fair number of guys at the spot.

I was hoping Barrett would leave to give another guy a shot, but at the same time it is hard to take on even a talented unsure thing for losing a known good.

Posting a link and noting it happened is a statement of political belief?

Comment 26 Feb 2017

I would be shocked if it was only those two, other big schools are going to come a calling too. I mean OSU is in a good spot, from what I understand, with relationships with the guy. But holding on through the year is hard. 

Comment 26 Feb 2017

Because Meyer did not get two very good DTs in last years class that other schools would have loved to have had. Not getting the number one guy or a five star at a given spot is not the end of the world. And nobody is a game changer or a difference maker until they do something on the field. 

Comment 26 Feb 2017

Have to imagine there have been a fair number of others through the years but did not want to tell others. Hope the kid plays well. 

Comment 25 Feb 2017

I just know that DT is one of the most overblown things discussed on these boards. Because OSU has missed on five star guys at the spot it is the end of the world and we ignore that OSU has been getting top ranked guys in the top ten of the position. Granted, they are not some of the monsters people want but OSU has done fine with this sort of line up. 

Nobody would have an issue if they got the #1 guys at these spots but at the same time I also get frustrated that people act like OSU is ending up with guys they found in the Union that were just hanging out. 

Comment 25 Feb 2017

Public intoxication itself is a problem. It is not behavior that an athletics department will want to condone at all. Being out and drinking is one thing, even getting drunk is not necissarily bad and part of college. You are right that resisting makes it worse. There should be punishment either way if the police had to get involved but resisting once they were there does make it more severe for sure. 

From a purely sports opinion. OSU would be better served with him playing. As it makes the win stronger, but otherwise something should happen to the guy. At least a game I would think.
