Devin is not there and that hurts, but dont underestimate the loss of Herman. The playcalling and of course, he was QB coach, and both QBs this yr. have been very inconsistant.
TURNOVERS, TURNOVERS, TURNOVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, the great equalizer, just a matter of time til it costs a game if this doesnt get fixed.........is our OL suffering with EW as OC? The D is playing very well, tho.
Dont forget AW knocking Brewer out of the game. HUUUGE!
I would go to brax every time a safety is on him
To be honest, I thought CJ missed several reads, but hey, its the 1st game of the season.
Am I missing something? We're supposed to fear VT? The same VT that couldnt beat ANYONE BUT THE BUCKEYES last yr? If that D was so ferocious, why couldnt they make the CFP ? Maybe Urb should have his staff watch all the film of that vaunted D and see how almost every other team VT played kicked their asses. Does that French guy really think that we're gonna trot out 4 new OL, a new RB and a QB that has only started 1 game in the last 2 yrs? The Urbmeister WILL NOT get outcoached again!
The thing I wonder about is the playcalling this yr. Herman was a cool customer and the success on 3rd downs will tell the tale.
I'm gonna miss Devin. It wasnt just his speed, he had the uncoachable knack for coming down with the ball when guys were hanging all over him.
WOW, i'm a little surprised. I havent heard much about Mike all camp. Congrats, Mike.
Gonna miss you, Devin. Dude just always found a way to get open, made tough catches with guys all over him.
Hmmmm, guess someone didnt watch the game.
And...........dont discount the EMOTIONAL high the Bucks were on, having lost a teammate and another starting QB that had just rewritten the record books. The defense definately stepped up. All yr. they had been pretty average, but the last 3 games, they made big plays. Even overcoming a 4-turnover NC game. Maybe the light finally came on for Fickell.
You got that right, they are scary when the Bucks come to town. They got absolutely hosed last yr. and should have won that game.
I dont think Bama nor OR were ready for just how physical the Bucks were.
The defensive turnaround the LAST THREE GAMES was truly remarkable. I hardly recognized the D those games. They were. for the most part, assignment sure, flying to the ball, hitting like trucks and downright intimidating. And, they picked up for the offense when turnover after turnover put them back on the field. I truly think Bama and OR werent ready for how physical tOSU was on both sides of the ball. If you look at the cam shots of those teams late in the games, they were spent and raged.
Beanie had a great stiff-arm
Hell, even the coke and weed couldnt make them sound good that nite. Or.......maybe it was the coke and weed? ;)
The Stones are my fav band and the laziest band in existence, basically just mouthing the songs and making no attempt to sing. I went to see them in 1969 and swore never again. I can imagine how lazy they are now.
Marshall scares me tom death back there. I can recall only one missed exchange fumble and one "the ball fell out of my hands" fumble during the title run. The rest were coughed up on hits, IIRC. But, as noted during one of the games, the team hadnt fumbled/been intercepted since Thanksgiving until the playoffs.
Ooorrrrrr........fast pass at the border.
Is that when Collins hurt his shoulder?
I remember watching Krenzel play against Drew Hanson(later went to ttun and pro baseball) at Utica High. Krenzel looked awful and Henson looked like a man amoung boys out there. When I read that Krenzel was going to tOSU, I really scratched my head. His stats(like in that game)never overwhelmed anyone. Never DREAMED he could be a winner.
Its not JUST the completion %. JTB produced a record # of TDs in his 1st yr. Breaking records of Troy Smith, Brax and a host of other good QBs.
Naaaawww! CJ is on the 2deep at ILB ;)
