If you're going to try to be funny at least know how to spell!!! It's SKRONG
Actually, that isn't true. Urban continually recruited both Green and Zeke. That whole "not a fit for the system" excuse was the result of Drayton telling Zeke and his parents that we may have to take two true running backs in the class. At that point Zeke's parents gave Urban and the staff an ultimatum, either Zeke or Green. The rest is history.
Of course he is going to start. Braxton is leaving for Bama, JT is transferring to Houston, and Cardale will be charged with attempted murder for his hit on Landon Collins
Is he Urban Myers' illegitimate kid?
I normally don't call for 2 qb systems but this has to be one. Both Qb's are talented enough and when you put them together you literally have the perfect qb. They would be like Lendak or something. It would be extremely hard if a team never knew which QB they were facing or what kind of offense OSU could field that weak. Under JT, Zeke was also a completely different back. He was a more complete back, catching passes, blocking, etc. With Cardale he is a workhorse back. Imagine if coaches had to prepare for different identities in every drive or so instead of every week. This could revolutionize college football
I'm not sure what defenses will play. I believe its harder to come up with a gameplan against Cardale than against JT. When we beat teams with JT was quarterback it was because we were just better than them.We fielded a more talented team with more talented players and better coaches. Cardale, I can look at Bama and say that they had a more athletic team. The had equally as much talent outside of their QB being as good as our 4th string qb. We beat them because they had to completely change who they were to match up against us. Also, I'm not sure if Paris or McLauren will ever materialize. What Ray Small and James Louis and that WR from Michigan has taught me is that never bank on a fast receiver necessarily translating to a great receiver
To be honest, I was referring to the wide receivers. But, also, Samuel is the only one who has shown he has great football speed. Jalin is a 4.6 40 athlete who is way shiftier than he is fast. Dontre has a faster 40 time but he has yet to prove he could break a big one. So, when I say we lack the speed, I mean we lack a proven vertical threat who can take the top off the defense. When either Jalin or Dontre is open it is because they are playing H and have a speed mismatch against a much slower and less agile line backer, not because they flatout burned a cornerback
I think people often forget JT because he isn't flashy as Cardale. He doesn't plow through all-american safeties or throw the 60-yard Go route without effort. I agree, with many of the points you have made but I think you have to weigh the skills of the team we played against when the two were quarterbacks. The most challenging defense JT played against was Michigan State. Cardale played Bama. Second may have been VT for Barrett and Cardale had Oregon. So, what I'm getting to is that JT played very well but he went down before 3 of our biggest games this year. Cardale made some plays that brought about a real qb competition. I remember watching them in spring ball last year and seeing how equally as terrible both players looked. I have no reason to believe that Cardale couldn't have put up monster numbers against our earlier opponents. Also, I think many of Cardale's "incompletions" were throw aways where he wouldn't try to force a pass or get sacked.
JT was very very efficient. I think he may be the best option for our youn offense with new receivers and not so fast skill players. But, with that said, Cardale clearly opens the offense up with his size, arm strength, and his powerful running ability. JT is a lot like Troy Smith and Chris Leak. He is a great short to mid range passer. He is extremely efficient and a more than capable runner. When you look at Cardale, he is much like Tim Tebow but with an arm. Teams have to respect his deep ball, but they also have to respect his running ability. I have always said the reason why Zeke performed exceptionally well the last 3 games is partly due to his talent and partly due to Cardale being at QB. Teams had to defend the entire field and not just the short field. And, that's what the spread is all about
Yes, explain to him that getting a free college degree is a mistake. How much did you pay for yours?
I wish him the absolute best in his career. I do think someone should have let him know that even though you may not major in petroleum engineering, you can still get into the field. I have had friends who majored in Chemical, Civil, and Mechanical engineering and all ended up with very high paying jobs at Exxon, BP, and Shell.
He showed that he was pro-ready. In three games he proved he was a better pro QB than Manziel, Mettenberger, etc. With the right pieces, he could be a monster
My mom wasn't even conceived yet.
It wasn't just Bosa, that's the thing. It was Bosa, Adolphus, Bennett, and Darron Lee. All four of those guys "took turns" making big plays. Bosa, is by far the most talented, and that showed on film and on the field. But, if you double team Bosa, then you are leaving Bennett and Washington in one and one situations. Like I said, Shelton had a terrific year. No knock on Shelton at all. But, he was a projected 2-3 round draft pick based on what he showed the other 3 years at Washington.
Shelton was also the only dominant player in Washington's front 7, if you say Shaq Thompson is a hybrid safety and not a linebacker. It is easier to have bloated stats when you don't play with Bosa or Darron Lee or other dominant linemen who also reap rewards. Bennett played out of position as a 290 lb nose tackle, so his skill set weren't necessarily built for the position. Imagine if you move Jeff Heuerman at offensive tackle and guard, then question why he isn't as good as a blocker as he was a tight end. Shelton, also only had one dominant year. Last year, he was a 2-3 round draft pick who had very dominant final season. Bennett was a projected top 10 draft pick before the season, and with the superb play of Bosa and others, he wasn't able to produce like they expected him to. Yes, he has an injury history, and he is undersized. I would agree that is also the reason why Stefan Diggs dropped. But, in terms of talent, and speed for his size, as well as consistency throughout his career against top competition, point me in the direction of a defensive tackle who has dominated like Bennett.
They also were baffled as to why he didn't hire strippers to have sex with him
A long snapper was drafted before Bennett... I'm huge Bennett fan, and don't consider myself a homer, but his slide was questionable. Maybe people question his maturity, but his play against some of the top linemen over the course of his career has been remarkable. He dominated at defensive end, defensive tackle, and nose guard. He is quicker than most guards, and him "struggling" or not showing up against several teams could be the fact that he also had Adolphus Washington, Joey Bosa, Noah Spence, and even Darron Lee making terrific plays in the backfield. You can argue size and pure strength, but his ability to embarrass offensive guards with his speed wasn't replicable in this draft.
It's Michigan football, the ref knew there was no reason for him to celebrate
Urban is falling behind. Saban and Kiffin at Bama offered at conception
Look on the bright side, it has been worst.
He showed up on time and didn't light a blunt in from of the front office. He also brought his girlfriend and didn't beat her for no apparent reason. Interviewers were baffled by his questionable behavior
sad, but unless you are a wrecker, the NFL prefers 6'3-6'4 DT's. They also want you at 300+ pounds, and preferably a prison record and several children before you are considered a top pick
Not surprised. He runs that play quite often. He ran it a bunch with Noah Spence, despite him being our best pass rusher.
All of you assholes who haven't tweeted him in the past 24 hours are to blame. I've done my share of tweeting and messaging him. Pull your weight Buckeye fans!
Please lord, don't let the Browns ruin the career of on of my favorite players
