Birm - would be awesome to get a rundown of all the forecasted early enrollees. Besides Schmidt, who else is on track for January? Great stuff, as always.
I sure hope placing the get dumped fact at the top of this article isn't the equivalent of, "this young man hasn't missed a free throw all season." Dribble, dribble.... Clank. Go Bucks!
How come we don't hear anything more about other Elite 15 commits recruiting their buddies? Seemed when Hilliard and Cornell committed, all talk was that they were going to recruit their buds. Haven't heard a peep about any of them, including Gibson, doing any recruiting?
Devan - get well, kid. You deserve it. Everything happens for a reason and your day will come.
Poor Cameron Johnston. One of the best punters in the country, yet all he gets to do is hold for XPs!
Just win games, JT!
Say yes and get to work recruiting your boys, Torrence!
Well that's a comment I don't read on this site often. "Didn't get to watch much of the game".
feel bad for you, guy.
The answer was yes. Too much credit. Bucks roll!
Not to be picky or anything.... Anyone else completely annoyed with Kyle Clinton kicking it out of bounds routinely??? On the season, that has to be 5 or 6 times. That long field goal early was completely due to the field position of the out of bounds kick.
That said....Awesome win on the road. The train is picking up steam!
Guys - am I giving MD too much credit? I'm nervous about this game. The vibe feels too cozy after big wins against uc and kent. Going on the road with young players is always a challenge and I don't get the feeling the same intensity is there as it was anticipating cincy. Anyone else fearing a very tight game???
While Devin's drop in the middle of the field (and jawing afterward) were inexcusable... Let's also not forget to give credit for the huge catch he made for the TD that gave breathing room after the comeback. Dude seems to miss the easy ones and make the tough ones.
Thrilled to see Thomas get the nod. Very deserving. But, let's not forget all the big plays Devin brings.
Prediction: Kiel throws 3 or more picks. Mark it down.
This is such a young team and we have so much to look forward to. Last week was devastating - if they could have found a way to win it, I truly believe they would have been on the way to undefeated. Young players make young mistakes. They'll learn and get better.
As far as I've been able to tell, Dixon hasn't played in either game this year. Wonder if he's on the way to a redshirt? I was expecting to see Dixon the way we've seen Samuel. And, agree, think he could be a gamer... sure hope so.
Here's a random thought. Does anyone wonder why we've had a tough time recruiting TEs lately? As far as I can tell, Heuerman has exactly 1 target for 0 catches in 2 games this year.
The best Buckeye teams have been those that have played with the edge of an underdog. Let's go bucks!
Best get well wishes, Brax. We'll be glad to have you leading, even if only from the sideline.
May they be doubters. Let's go bucks. What were the odds when we won the championship with a freshman RB, smart and serviceable QB and a stellar D? Very long.
I seem to recall a couple redshirt freshmen QBs that came on the college football scene in recent years and did just fine. Won a little hardware along the way, too. Let's go, JT.
that said, get well Brax. We love ya.
Faster? northwestern just heard that and fired the entire grounds crew. Can you imagine? If we played at Northwestern this year, it would be like running through the fields sound of music style. Those guys won't cut the grass for the next several years.
I know I'm in the minority here, but I have huge expectations for Bri'onte Dunn. A couple years ago, he had the same type of hype and a not so different yards per carry as EzE did last year (over 5 yds per on more carries, if I recall). It seemed every time he touched the ball, he was electric. I have to believe his redshirt was part of a plan. If this were Vegas, he'd be one of the long shot bets. Whatever Bri'onte's over/under yard total looks like today - I'm taking the over. Just a hunch....
As an out of towner Buckeye fan, THANK YOU for keeping us up to speed. Phenomenal coverage as well as posts from those who were at the 'shoe! Wish I were there too. Go bucks.
Did anyone else immediately call up visions of the locker rooms from their own sports teams past? Talking cold concrete floors, grimy showers, lint filled fans and that ever so distinctive odor.... Or was that just me? Slightly different ambiance to the Bucks new get up....
Thanks for all the comments, everyone. Looks like we're coming up empty. He's not responding via twitter.... May be missing his big break.
Seriously, chief? If so, that's awesome. How can I get the contact info to pass along?
And a hearty, go bucks.
