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.
Wow. Really great, Birm. Terrific insights from the coach of a now powerhouse program in AZ. Really speaks well of the respect for tOSU to get such focused time from him. Hats off for the depth of coverage. Ok - jump in, Christian. Let's go!
Big day today, buckeyes. Let this be a rocket launch in T minus 3 hours and counting.
Don't forget about that O line, too.
Was thinking the same. Props to Jalin - a guy whose been dealt a tough hand with the injury and could be pouting about not getting much personal hype going into the season. Great to see that guy alongside Brax working on a Friday night in June.
Love the fact that there's no doubt about which school is your "dream school". Welcome aboard big fella.
The tone of this comment by Justin also drops a hint that it's likely not 'bama. Implies that he's signing up to be a recruiter to help land that top notch class. I think we'd all agree that Saban recruits ok on his own, for better or worse. Yes, Urb's awesome too, btw. tOSU, baby!!!
edit: "I'm excited to go out and get a class together that will hopefully be a top-three class nationally."
Can I make a separate, but related, suggestion? I have a $20 bill in hand and would like to send it directly to 11W in exchange for a really sweet 4-6, A to B t-shirt from the dry goods section. Can we make this happen?
And on a side note, and with no disrespect at all to Mr. Cooper, how awesome is it to hear "those were guys on a mission" and "one thing is for sure, they were getting after it." Seems to be the theme from many of these recruiting reports. Tickets in hand for the opener against Navy and counting down the minutes. Go Bucks!
Is defriend a real word?
Got my tix. Plan to go to both Bucks games in MD this year!
Can't hurt with these guys to know the Bucks play in MD twice this year. Just bought my tix to the Navy game in Baltimore last night.
