Was there one single play more important than that touchdown pass all year long? That was the momentum swing play. Yes, zeke's run was huge (aided by Spencer's block), but that TD pass was near impossible to both throw and catch. Maybe the biggest single play of the season? This year's version of holy buckeye.
Best news I've seen all day. Awesome, Kenny G. Awesome.
I must say, I do find this to be rather annoying. Why pay homage to Hoke? Seriously?
Congrats coaches! Another job well done.
Early to commit and early to fax. Love it.
Here's where I respectfully disagree with you, Patrick. "The Buckeyes, of course, can only start one of them."
I'll betcha we see more than one of them on the field at the same time on a regular basis next year. Just sayin.
THAT just gave me chills. Thank you fans in attendance for showing the love to 5. He'll be back.
Were the scouts able to verify that Devin has eyes in the back of his head? Dude catches every ball when his back is to the qb. Every single one.
Just thinking the same! Redefine H-Back and have all 3 on the field a lot. Right? Doesn't H stand for hybrid? We have guys that flex between RB and WR (Jalin, Dontre) or between WR and TE (Noah Brown). How about Warriner rolls out with Cardale taking a snap with the option to pitch/sling it over to JT for him to opt to run, pitch or pass? Next play, Brax behind center and reposition Dolo and/or JT. How can you defend those options?????!!!!!
Absolute props to Mike for the catch against bama. But... The couple amazing catches he hauled in in the first quarter against Wisconsin that fueled the confidence of Cardale were monumental. The one, in particular, that sticks out was a throw down the middle that was sailing and he went up super-high to make the catch. Had that sailed over or been a tip, it could have easily been an early pick establishing momentum for wisc. Who knows where we'd be now if that happened. Not the most spectacular play, but one that really illustrates Mike's value.
It's like buckshot, shorty, duck down! (Dip Set)
A thread was started by a graduating student who was upset about brax "bringing too much media attention" to himself by showing up in fancy suits and mugging for the cameras at games, etc.... After Brax was, apparently, recognized during graduation. The author was ripped pretty hard, as we know Brax is a pretty humble guy with the media.
Maybe Raekwon? Kwon had to switch to 2 because he and JH were on the kickoff team and couldn't both wear 5.
And best still.... Jalin AND Dontre!
Look at that, Burrell got a haircut. A lot of em, actually.
Betcha a similar article could have been written about Smooth Jazz and Herman a year ago. There is a trend here - qb's have been ready under Herman. All of them. Nice work Coach Herman and congrats Houston on your strong hire.
And not to mention Kiffin is throwing his QB under the bus by saying he was about to transfer and never really wanted to be at bama to begin with. Not a very cool think to do to your player.
ie: win and you're in! I'd argue style points really don't matter - unless it's a complete slop fest, which won't happen.
All those attendance numbers across the B1G don't hurt either. Want to turn off all these fans by not inviting the 1 loss champion to the dance? I don't think so.
Coach Drayton's is powerful.
Haven't heard anything official - any chance dontre is available for Wisconsin? Would be nice to have his explosive ability back in there. (Corey Smith has been stepping up lately - just not at Dontre level.)
Anyone else on a mad dash to get the honey do list finished by noon?
I know more today about my beloved Buckeyes than I ever have. I'm thankful for all you do, 11W!
Let me start by saying... Huge Brax fan. 5 has created many a proud moment for us fans. No doubt.
A surprising observation, however. I would have thought he'd be playing an active role with this year's team. As far as I know, he's still a captain. I really expected to see him regularly in the offensive huddle on the sideline rallying the troops. Sitting next to JT providing guidance and words of advice. I really had hoped his leadership would shine through while he has been unable to play. However - it's been just about the opposite. He's not been visible at all. He's not been engaged with the success of the team. He's, apparently, just waiting.... Just an observation.
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.
