And how exactly do they disagree. I have yet to see Lattimore out of the top 10 and he is higher than Conley on virtually every mock draft. The only reason they would think twice of taking Conley over Lattimore is potential injuries. I can count on one hand the times Lattimore was burned all season and virtually every time he was, it was a perfect pass and ball placement. Plus he's a more willing to come up in the run.
Conley has the potential to be a solid contributor at the next level, still don't think he's on Lattimore's level. Lattimore is the type of guy to start and have an impact from day 1 and a lockdown kind of guy.
Semper Fi, sir!
Sorry but Fickells not gonna steal him from tOSU and Urban Meyer.
Love affair? Is there something about you we should know? :p
No way that Samuel falls to the third round, once he runs that 40 and his vertical, he's going first round.
My boys need to pick up Lattimore. He's the best corner in America and he'll go higher when they see how he can run and jump.
You might have an argument if the receivers were getting open. Still had a QB rating of 148 and above those last three games, what's your point? He looked GREAT passing the ball in 2014, go watch some highlights. Also the playcalling from that Minnesota game was very conservative.
I agree, I just think very little of that is JT's fault. The play calling set him up for failure, his O-Line was weak, his receivers were weak and its obvious he lost confidence and regressed. His coaching seemed off, I mean the kid looked like one of the best passers in the nation in 2014 and just hit the wall this year. Definitely has the potential to be a great PASSING QB with the right support, coaching and playcalling.
I think everyone's forgetting how much of an amazing O-Line coach Warriner is. He might've not been the best play caller but go easy on him, eh? He's done a lot for Buckeye Nation and we forget that he did rightfully earn that promotion. Whether or not he wants to take a demotion back to O-Line is his decision but Warriner just needs some time there and I have no doubt he'll improve as a play caller with a couple seasons under his belt. With that being said, hopefully we retain him as an O-Line coach but hopefully he isn't the one calling the plays if he stays.
Hopefully he fires himself
Anyone think the loss influenced his decision at all? Either way, next man up :(
1) Beck is pathetic.

Hardly any north/south running, hardly any zone read, pure garbage for offensive playcalling. Its hard to develop your QB when you give him garbage options and never let him throw down field, he becomes rusty. JTB used to be great but sadly has regressed since Herman has been gone. Barrett wasn't sharp but he has been let down time and time again by his receivers not getting open and dropping passes when they actually do. The line was fairly weak tonight and Barrett has the potential to be a great player. It could have been Peyton Manning back there tonight but with that play calling and weak line and receiver play we wouldn't have won. Major props to the defense, their heart and resolve showed through all the way till the end tonight and at one point it seemed like they were playing for each other and pride, I was happy to never see them quit even though they had every reason to. Need an O-Line revamp, WR need some serious coaching and need to get rid of Beck. JTB has the potential to be a great quarterback unfortunately it is probably the coaching that has caused him to regress. Its a tough loss but remember its just a damn game, and we will be back. Keep the negativity to a minimum.
TP wasn't an angel but Hartline and Boone don't have much room to talk and all he sounds is salty. I think JT loved TP more than any player on that team. Keep yer mouth shut, Brian.
To be fair, its a lot harder and more uncommon for an O-Lineman to come in and make an impact as a true freshman as opposed to say a DE, WR, RB or even LB. Nick Bosa, Ted Ginn, Maurice Clarett. For O-Linemen and QB's to do it is much more uncommon.
Doesn't matter, when THE Urban Meyer is sitting in front of you, whether you plan on playing him or not, he's that good of a recruiter that he can get you to think twice. Kids love him cause they know he actually cares about them and is an awesome dude to be around.
Having a quality coach for two years is much more important than having someone who will be here long term who is most likely an average coach. THE Ohio State isn't desperate especially with Urban Meyer at the helm and we're not looking for stability from assistant coaches (which would be great, don't get me wrong, but realistically speaking), we're looking to put together a championship run every year and those kinds of assistants pick up head gigs pretty quickly.
He's also produced some pretty abysmal defenses and also been on the end of some pretty abysmal playcalling. *incoming DV's Lol* hey, I just speak the truth. Great Buckeye, great family man but never been a fan as a coach.
Fickell, Beck and Bollman, the 3 stooges.
Honestly I think JT has a lot of untapped potential, playcalling has really hurt him. He's capable of being a slinger, but he's too baby-ed when it comes to the playcalling. If we don't let JT get going early its gonna be a long night for us whether its against Clemson or Bama in the Natty. #freeJT
Being from Texas, I don't know how I feel about that... guess I'm ok with it.
Urban's a player's coach, that's why he recruits so well, he believes in developing and molding young men, Saban, well you're just another football player that's gonna keep getting him wins and it shows.
