Yes Mi*hig*n fans have the constitutional rights to expect to reach 500 (success for them)
This is my order
Love how much Michael Thomas challenges the defense to be better.
Manti Teo's girlfriend finally decided to show up
Its in practice and he will only get better. That's where you learn from your mistakes, he'll be a very good corner, remember who he is going up against daily, definitely going to be some All B1G performers on the receiver squad and I think Thomas and/or Marshall could potentially be All-Americans next year.
Honestly, I'm from Dallas and coach football here in Dallas and was really following Dontre's recruitment when the Buckeyes were recruiting him. I was ecstatic when we got him and when there was a little Marshall vs Dontre competition, I always backed Dontre. I always defended Dontre saying he was faster and quicker and better with the ball in his hands than Marshall but Jalin Marshall has really, really impressed me. He may not be as quick as Dontre but he's got everything it takes to be a great football player and at this point I love em both but I just think Marshall is a plain and simple better football player/H-back/receiver than Dontre is. Dontre has all the potential in the world to be special but I think Curtis Samuel will take the H-back position and run with it. I also do not know if this is true or not, but have heard this from some of my boys, Dontre had a major attitude problem, especially towards his coaches at DeSoto. I will not get into detail of the things they told me because at this point this is heresay but I definitely do see it with Dontre, in my mind I think he took some of that attitude with him to tOSU and Urban benched him so he could learn his lesson and now there are just players that are much better.
Two words: Curtis Samuel
Yessir! Very unfair, its going to be video game type unfair!
This offense will be ridiculous, video-game caliber. Marshall will be a very good pure receiver and Samuel is gonna be the best H-back in the nation. Oh and we also have the best RB in the nation. Oh and some of the best QB's in the nation...I'll just stop there :D
Brionte Dunn and Marcus Baugh could be some of the better players in the nation right now I am really rooting for them to start doing the little things right! Who's the player who laid the stick on Paris Campbell on the jet sweep?
The intensity of these practices is insane. Urban F. Meyer, best coach in the game.
This kid is very, very underrated by most services
That's the beauty of H-back, you can have two or even 3 on the field at the same time. Marshall can line up as a receiver, Dontre can line up in the slot and Samuel can line up in the backfield and you can still do a jet sweep to Marshall or Dontre or throw it to Samuel as a receiver out of the backfield or you can just line them all up in a 4-WR set along with Michael Thomas and EzE in the backfield.
All great players emerge from somewhere...
Its not a personal vendetta, its called a team for a reason, best man starts against both teams and I think that will be JT.
Top Passers In Order: JT, Cardale, Braxton
Best QB (leadership, ability to read a defense and execute): JT, Cardale, Braxton
Most Efficient QB for our offense: JT, Cardale, Braxton
At this point, we need a passer because we hands down know that ANY of the 3 guys can run, Cardale will run you over, JT will run it like a RB, and Braxton will juke you out of your shoes. This is such a hard decision but for me, I think you start JT based on what he did as a freshman and Cardale is a very close second, then again, Cardale's 3rd down efficiency is ridiculous, very, very hard decision but I think the departure of Devin Smith may take away one of Cardale's main weapons and he'll have to throw down the middle much more, where I think JT is better.
And Amari Cooper
Damn, I'm not trying to sound negative but I really liked Austin Robertson, I think his film is extremely impressive and his get off the ball and motor is great but do you guys think Hall's commitment shook up the whole picture here? I think that threw a wrinkle into things cause both Mack and Robertson were supposed to be locks and now they're looking around and were supposed to go to the same college. I would still love to have Robertson!
Jail bait you mean.. Lol
I completely disagree with you Buckeye06, there is ALWAYS the possibility that someone comes along and plays better no matter how big and bad you are. Even if the possibility is small EVERY great player has emerged from somewhere. I am not saying Booker will pass Perry nor am I saying that he has a higher ceiling (which from articles I've read, I would say it is a very likely possibility) but what I am saying is that the mentality that there is 0% chance someone gets passed up has to stop. It should ALWAYS be THE BEST PLAYER WILL PLAY, no matter how many individual awards, etc. the player may have. How many of us thought Curtis Samuel would earn a start as a freshman over EzE, or how many of us thought our 3rd stringer would win us our first national championship since 2002 and potentially dethrone a 2-time Big Ten offensive player of the year, I've seen all too often in my playing days where players get too comfortable and the coach has no spine to do anything about it, or a player works his tail off and emerges out of nowhere. Every great coach is always open to the possibility that someone can come in and take a starting spot from even his star players.
Very surprised that Tyquan Lewis, Schutt and Conley are running with the 1's. Then again it may be one of the master motivators techniques to make other players earn it. Only one I can really see starting from that group is maybe Conley, either way kudos to whoever wins the spots come first game of the season!
Its both! He is telling them he needs more from them!
True but as a coach I can tell you how much more stressful it is with kids who defy authority constantly and misbehave. That probably contributes to his peace of mind a lot and like the previous posters said! It's his dream job and he learned a lot from his mistakes!
We need more role models like these young men, Urban Meyer didn't win a championship, he trucked his way to a championship with young men of character, unlike other coaches who just want to win. I know he had his days at Florida where winning was the most important thing but now he's doing it with young men with character and that makes it so much harder because you can't just recruit anyone, that's why in my mind, he's the best coach in college football that I have ever witnessed. Go Bucks!
