This is tOSU, The Urbmeister was brought in to win a NC. Winning a lot of games goes hand-in-hand with that. No NC=not successful, imo.
Im sorry, Kyle, but theres no way Urb wins #4 with tOSU last yr. You DID watch the Clemson game, right? He closed out the season escaping TTUN by an eyelash, then looked bad losing to MSU and looked even worse losing to Clemson.
Ahhh, hope springs eternal. Bring on Navy! GO BUCKS!
With all due respect, Chiro, you think TWO YEARS and counting is quick? The D has sucked ever since the Urbmeister got here. And, after every game "its gonna get fixed".
I hear ya. This, in and of itself, is not big deal. BUT, this is the 3rd one. Thats called a trend. Whats up with the Urbmeister?
Speaking of TP, I recently went back and watched his bowl/ttun games. I was never a BIG TP fan, but I gotta tell ya, the kid was pretty awesome most of the time.
LOTS of questions this yr. on BOTH sides of the ball. And, a new kicker.
Dont forget ttun, could easily have ended the yr. with 3 straight losses.
Theres been TWO constants with the D the past couple yrs. Meyer AND Fickell. I loved me some Fickell as a player, and maybe he's a good recruiter, but as a DC.........not so much. Even Co-DC.
I miss the big guy already.
How about the top 5Glenville kids that got away? Just curious.
To be honest, I wasnt all that impressed with Wilson. After all was said and done, he had very average #s for a WR/RB/Hybrid, whatever you wanna call him.
"Yes, the Buckeyes could be pretty good---if EVERYTHING breaks the way we hope." Emphasis mine.
But, then, 25% of D1 teams could say the same thing. Here's hoping that after 2 yrs, Urb can field a legit D and the Oline can get it done against good teams, unlike last yr. when that much hyped Oline got their asses handed to them the last 2 games.
That might work, as long as he's not gameplanning
You might have a point about putting KG in, at least for a series and see if Brax could have recovered.
Im curious. What makes you think the D will be dominate? IMHO, half the problem was with the DCs. I love me some Luke, a true Buckeye thru and thru, but I think its time for him to go. In 2 yrs, we still havent figured out how to defend the WR screen or short passes in the flat, nor how to tackle after those passes are caught. We made every QB and every decent WR we faced, except maybe FAMU, look like 1st round picks. And now we lose Roby and RDS.
Not that Watkins isnt good, he made some very good catches, but we made EVERY respectable WR look NFL quality all yr.
So, who plays QB next yr?
I hold my breath every time i see him back there, I'm shouting "fair catch!"
Our D is bullshit! Urb has had 2 years to fix it and it still sucks. Teams routinely put up 500 yds/35-40pts on us. They make some GREAT plays, but give up way too many big plays(25+yds). btw, 3rd and 1, why dont we give it to "the horse" we were gonna ride?
I wonder if Venables watched the B1GC game? #rd and 2..........4th and 2. btw, If committing so early causes 2nd thoughts, how many thoughts do you get for 4 yrs. early?
Thrilled to get RM. I just hope he's good enough to start right away, we need lots of help at LB.
He just wasnt the same passer after the injury. mjechanics screwed up? Head games?.............I dont kno, but it seemed like he reverted to "run 1st Brax".
Golston kept us in the game?.......tOSU was in the game against LSU?
Isnt it Urb's job to see that those things get fixed? They, Urb and the defensive staff, kept saying it but it never got fixed. Plus, we had 2 bye wks. to work on it.
Jordan, have you heard any rumblings about Jones maybe flipping to Kentucky?
