I'm not kidding when I say this, I'm tired of hearing all the bitching about Tim Beck saying he was an awful OC. He wasn't Tom Herman good but if he was so bad first of all Urban wouldn't have hired him if he sucked and Herman wouldn't have made Beck his OC. Next its time to start giving JT blame when it's due and admit that the offense has not been nearly as explosive the past 2 years as it was in 2014. Also, people need to quit using the excuse "well in 2014 JT was great". I'm tired of people being obsessed with the 2014 game tape rather than focus on the games being played this year. I know JT won't get benched but for next year's team to reach its potential he will need to step up big time.
Offense- Weber due to Michigan ties, also I'd love to see Samuel 1 on 1 in the open field with peppers and see Samuel expose him
Defense- Holmes and Bosa combine for 3 sacks and both get constant pressure on UM QB right in his face.
Weber has 21 carries for 137 and 3 tds
Samuel has 6 rushes for 45 yards and 7 catches for 80 yards
Only saw his name on here once but even though he wasn't the best I'd love to have Craig Krenzel as my QB.
If I remember correctly Bryant got hurt in the Wisconsin game which was game 5 that year. I also think Smith got hurt against Indiana which was game 5. However Smith was suspended week 1. I can't be sure but I thought the rule on a medical rs was you have to play in less than 33 percent of the teams total plays on that side of the ball. I think he got hurt in the second quarter. So he played 3 and a half games so that is possibly less than 33 percent.
Honestly I'm a fan and of Rex Ryan. I think that he definently is a better defensive cordnaitor than head coach but I don't think he's an awful head coach. His team still went to the AFC title game twice with Mark Sanchez as the QB. Now year one in buffalo I think they're 5-7 which isn't good but it's not awful considering this is Tyrod Taylor's sixth year in the league and he's never started before this year. But Rob on the other hand, yea I agree only gets jobs because of his father.
Honestly for me since I'm only 16 years old I mainly tried to pick players that I had either seen play or have heard talked about on this site and that is why I chose Elflein. It's crazy that my list was a pretty good one but I didn't even mention some great players such as David Boston, Jack Tatum, Andy Katzenmoyer, Shawn springs, and even though I did not "forget" about him but Troy smith. Man I love being a buckeye fan.
Who would have thought this Saturday at 3:29 PM.
It'll be mostly Zeke and Barrett with hopefully a couple set plays for a triple option with JT Braxton and Zeke
I think he's just one of those guys who tries to not let his emotions get the best of him. For some guys it works pretty well. I'm a Ravens fan and although he's not elite in my opinion he's a 8-10 QB in the league Joe flacco is a pretty solid QB and he always looks upset. Than other guys like Jay Cutler it isn't so good, I think that Most coaches want their team to take on the Pearsonality of their coach and dantonio wants his team to be very calm and under control.
Honestly I don't see this game being to competitive, I don't think MSU is as good as they were last year and I think we can capitalize and make big plays on their defense. I'm expecting a 35-16 type game. The game is tight through the first quarter but in the second quarter we hit our stride offensively and the front four asserts their presence, leading 21-6 at halftime. Than in the second half we play a grind it out half, pounding Zeke and Barrett up the middle. Michigan State gets 10 late points, cutting the deficit to a 35-16 final. GO BUCKS
There are no conspiracy theories. JT made a dumb choice at a very bad time. He will learn from this and it will make him an even better PERSON.
Cam Newton is the closest to a true dual threat.
I think that perhaps the NFL has gotten spoiled with a large amount lately of college QB's starting as rookies and playing well like luck, flacco, tannehill, and others.
As we all know Zekes best 5 games last year were MSU, Cincy, Wisconsin, Bama, and Oregon. 4 of those games were against the best defenses we played. I expect Zeke to start getting 200+ once November 21 rolls around.
