I agree with the other poster, Lee has a whole year to redshirt. Also, When Shazier came in, he had only played defensive end in high school and was too undersized to play it in college. He had to come from a position where all he had to do was rush and react to read and react. You also have to look at the fact that the cupboard was empty, there were no upperclassmen playing well when Shazier came in, Sabino was coming off his redshirt, and there was a lack any coaching with all of the turmoil. Only difference between the d-line now and then is this line is actually athletic.

I think Eli's problem is he relies too much on his athletic abilities to make plays, which is why he's always out of place. He isn't that fast or quick so its hard for him to makeup ground. But overall, he is a good corner and I expect him to continue learning himself and the college football game. When that happens, he is going to be a top-5 or top-10 corner

Hackenberg is overrated. His is hit or miss in terms of performance. He has all of the power and makes the right throws, but he also throws like 2 picks a game and makes many questionable throws (which are usually picked off). As long as there is a hand in Hackenberg's face, expect him to throw about 2 picks.

For all of those making the Shazier comparisons, I find it a bit hard to compare them. To me, Shazier was a pure linebacker or defensive who had the size and speed of a safety. His speed and instincts allowed him to secure the field and make plays whenever he pleased. With Lee, he isn't really a pure linebacker in my eyes. Lee is more of a safety in a linebacker role. Though they have similar size, Lee's aggression is subtle. For example, what Shazier would do is explode though the line and blow up whoever had the ball. Lee, on the other hand, is usually a step or two behind where Shazier would have been but breaks down and makes his powerful hits like they are open-field tackles

I didn't know Brady Hoke was a Florida fan. Must be his next job 

Comment 10 Oct 2014

Well, Wilson has all of those qualities but he isn't as good as Harvin. He has speed but doesn't have breakaway speed. He has vision but doesn't have the ability to bust long runs. He is shifty but isn't going to break anyone's ankles. I think he develops into a more complete player but I don't think he will ever become a Harvin type player

I have to think that he's UK's to lose. He is being sold on being the star back in UK's air raid offense, which is nothing because the probably will make him more of a glorified receiver. Also, he has attended a ton of games this year and they have put up some very good showings against the declining SEC East teams. The team is up and coming and runs a scheme that is built to put up incredible numbers on offense, which of course excites the crowd and that affects the recruits. He also stated that being close to home is very important to him.

This has to be a joke right? Philly Brown was a freshman when tress left and Hyde was behind Boom Herron and Brandon Saine and Jordan Hall, which was definitely justified considering Hyde has to take a year off and go the JUCO route. No, Tress didn't bring in high profile skill players every year but you can see half of those guys are still in the NFL (what about Urbs? Riley Cooper and Harvin? Anyone else?). I hate when people turn this into a Tress vs Urban war bc both of them has brought great season to OSU. But, don't try to discount Tress bc Urban is our current coach bc OSU wouldn't have even been a program he would have considered without the foundation Tress laid

Man that's just Urbs being Urbs. He has to say that now because Miller is a former Heisman candidate, a 2 time big ten player of the year, and has one of the biggest fan bases in Ohio State history. If he were to come out and say, JT is our future qb, then Miller would likely transfer (given that he graduates on time) and play somewhere else and we would be stuck with Cardale as our backup (if he doesn't transfer himself). No coach in his right mind would say Miller isn't the starter, but we will see what really happens in the Spring. 

Comment 01 Oct 2014

He was always a bit stiff and slow. I think he needs to develop a bit more. Most cornerbacks his size aren't quick twitch players who can run hand and hand with smaller quicker receivers. Give him a couple of more years and he should develop into a pretty solid cornerback. 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

To be honest, I don't think he had a concussion either. When he fell, he was trying to plant on his hurt ankle, which it looked like he rolled it some more. I have been concussed before, and I literally couldn't even walk a straight line. I know all concussions won't give the same result, but Morris would have likely have had a problem even realizing where to walk, let alone how to walk

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Well you want an overhaul and not a miracle. You can teach schemes and coverages biut you can't teach skill and athleticism. The past 4 years has only had one real athlete in the secondary and that was Roby, who relied too much on his athleticism. OSU has never had any dominant defensive backs Malcom Jenkins left.
