And not just the TOs. They made TONS of mistakes on offense and defense. Be it Bosa's untimely penalties, blown coverage, missed fumble recoveries, big plays left and right, dropped passes, missed wide open receivers, JM's extremely poor decisions on punts.....etc. And still they won. Truly incredible. GO BUCKS!!!!!!!!!!
Dont fence me in.
Or FIFTY or SIXTY!...............lol...........i was once how many records this team set while JT was still in there, even more with CAR-DALE-JONES-BABY!
Yep! Distinguished himself among a long line of great tOSU WRs.
"Blood THIRSTY Buckeyes!"........i'll never forget that.
Gus Johnson was awesome in that broadcast. Blood THIRSTY Buckeyes!.....hahaha, love it.
These adjustments explain a lot. However, to my feeble mind, they dont explain the complete turnaround the D made in the last 3 games. As recently as THE GAME, the D was pretty averge, IMO. The last 3 games didnt even look like the D we had fielded all yr. I think someone, or someTHING?, grabbed our guys and made copies/machines that were awesome hitters, faster to the ball, assignment sure(for the most part) and playing with a confidence not seen before. And, lets not forget the coaches, they morphed also in the playcalling. i remember watching the B1GCG and being in amazement at the D i saw on the field.
Is it Sept. yet?
Dont forget, we have 2 QBs coming back from injury. Never know how thats gonna pan out. Also, next yr. we will have all the hype and distractions you can imagine. How will the QBs/team handle that? I'd say Cardale starts, by the slimmest of margins. JTB was a record setting QB, but may be a little like Brax, in that he may be injury prone. My personal fav? JTB.
GO BUCKS! REPEAT!
Oversigning? Now this? Smacks of SEC to me. I've said dumber things, maybe, but time will tell who is the dumb one.
That was before he reverted to his "Florida" antics. Bottom line, he deceived Webber and thats gonna hurt tOSU recruiting going forward. And, hurt the university in general.
Drayton on the phone until the wee hrs, then quits the day after NSD day?........come on, man........this stinks to high heaven. I hope im wrong.
That situation SUCKS. I dont blame Webber for being pissed, he got hosed. Thats not business, thats low down.
Quite funny, actually!
We fielded a TOTALLY different defense those last 3 games, especially in the back 7. Right up thru THE GAME, the D was pretty iffy. Suddenly, the D started tackling, executing, flying to the ball,coming up in support and rarely missed an assignment. I hardly recognized them.
Tom Herman will not be calling plays for tOSU next season. It will be interesting to see what EW brings to the table in that regard.
Definately a plus for CAR-DALE-JONES. No one knows how JT is gonna perform after that injury. ANOTHER injury, I might add. Kid has had some bad luck in that area. But, all things being equal, the offense runs smoother with JT and I expect him to start. Herman called JT the smartest QB he ever coached. What a problem to have, huh? Remember when we didnt even have ONE QB? Yeah, me neither.
The D showed up just in time. As recently as THE GAME, it wasnt looking so good. Except for a half against PSU.
Makes me wonder how TPryor would have faired under Urb/Herman.
JT is a better passer and, to quote the Urbmeister, the ENTIRE playbook is open when JT's in there. Tuff call, but JT starts next yr, IMHO. Altho a good case can be made for CJ.
Here's my take on the QB situation. Im assuming that all 3 are ready to go in the fall. I love me some Brax, for what he's done for the Buckeyes. I love me some Cardale because, well y'all know why. If I had my choice, it would be JT, because the offense just seemed to run smoother. Having said that, I'd start Cardale and move Brax to Hback/Wildcat. Cardale has one yr. of playing, then he;'s gone. In steps JT the following yr., while we groom replacements Collier should be ready by then and who knows which other guys will still be on the team. We're extremely heavy on QB, so I expect some attrition. Maybe even Brax.
He almost killed a Dtackle that got in his way, not to mention he almost decapitated that poor DB that intercepted him.
When Kenny G left, I wondered if we'd ever see another. Hell, we had TWO waiting. How cool is THAT?
Sorry, Ducks, but you ran into a team possessed. What did Gus Johnson call them?.....BLOOD THIRSTY BUCKEYES!
The D was huge again tonite. Awesome 3rd down stats against #1. The D-line owned those guys. The "O" did ok, too. Did you happen to notice the Ducks towards the end of the game? Their D was tired, beat down and beat up.
He surely did. The SLOBS were awesome tonite. Cardale mostly had lots of time but the WRs werent getting open.
