I was thinking the same thing Coach. I hate to say it, but UM seems to have become relevant again. BYU is a pretty good team. I know we have a lot of season left but we should definitely not go into that game over confident and with blinders on. It's gonna be a war..... but hell it alwsys is. It showtime boys!!!!
I believe that behind closed doors after the championship game, UFM promised Jones the starting position for this season. He probably gave him reasons why he needed to stay and play this season... i.e. more starting reps, increase your game experience, primetime exposure, etc..... All of these things will just increase his draft status. The first 4 games would get him much needed experience before B1G play. I believe UFM truly believes this. Not to mention, he probably figured that Barrett wouldn't be 100% after that horrific injury, so why not ride out the 12 gauge train and hope it all comes together. As the season progresses, Barrett will heal further and get back into the flow picking up minutes in the 3rd and 4th quarters. If Barrett needed to step in during the season, he'd be available. If it works, its genius.... if it doesn't. ........ Either way, lets go boys.
UFM has gotten us thus far so he may know a thing or 2 about this game we all love. GO BUCKS!!!
You said it all right there Hot Sauce.... Its everything. They need to strip down the offense a bit and keep it simple... build complexity as the season continues. Designate a starting QB and stick to them.... I say stick with Barrett. Choose one play caller... I say Beck, let Warriner focus on the OL. Throw away the damn wildcat and get Brax involved in jet sweeps and reciver routes. Most importantly, feed the beast....run the damn rock!!!!
Check... check.... and check!
True indeed. The ref was movin!!
That would be a great move from the Browns. They have nothing to lose. Oh, I forgot they have a stable of elite QB's at their disposal right now.
He reminds me of El Guapo. Great vision, quick, fast, likes contact and seems to get stronger as the game unfolds. Straight BEAST!!!
Bring home numero ocho boys. Keep your foot on the pedal. Let's do some duck hunting with a 12 gauge.
I think it was a ballsy call.... no matter the rationale. But IMO, we should have burn a little more clock with a jet sweep to Marshall, up the gut with Ezekiel, something on the ground to burn clock and at least move the chains. But, it worked out so no harm no foul.....
Let's start the new year right. The Big Ten dominated yesterday and is 5 and 4 so far in the bowl games. Lets hear it BIG TEN, BIG TEN, BIG TEN..... if the SEC can do it, why can't we. There is something about supporting our entire conference that feels right. The better the B1G is OOC, the better the Buckeyes in general will be perceived. The B1G is in an ascent to relevance and hopefully dominance. Let's get r done!
I have been a life long Buckeye fan, born in raised in Columbus, OH and I must say one thing.... Except for the birth of my kids, the day I married my wife and 2002 CC Game, this may be one of the happiest days of my life!!!!! (And it may be one upped on January 12th.....) Damn it's good to be a Buckeye, especially today!!!! Only us Buckeye fans believed we could beat the tide.
Herbie has always been and always will be a Buckeye. Nuff said...
Lets hope that boot has a knife in the toe and spur on the heel.
Damn I missed it too until just now. Well played indeed!
The gutting of the Ravens and the MEGA CONTRACT to Flacco almost 2 years ago damn near cost us everything. The Ravens sold out that last year to win the Super bowl. Between Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh, they're working miracles with damn near nothing.
Hey stop that, it's 7:26 and *ichigan still sucks!
Screw MM, he's an a $$ clown and he is totally irrelevant.
Should we care or expect any less from Brando? He's a talking head that's been around a while. Let's be honest, it's easy to hate our beloved Buckeyes. If I wasn't a fan, I'd probably hate us too.
Its amazing how things change with time. If this topic was out week 3 of the season, there would have been folks saying GOOD RIDDANCE! But now going into the CFP, most will give a big exhale and say phew...GOOD COACHES!

Our Defense is coming along nicely. You know the old saying..."If it ain't broke don't fix it." We should focus on a new Co-OC.
JT is just getting started. I don't like to project the Heisman but i will hope for the best and enjoy the ride. 3 more years, 3 more years!!!
If we're aggressive and play with our hair on fire, we have a good chance to win. Our offense is just as high powered now as before. We would've put 70 plus on whisky last night if we didn't try all the wildcat and diversionary plays. With CJ firing down field, the running game going and the D, we have a chance to beat anyone.
I believe that this is one of the most resilient teams I've ever seen. Dealing with the adversity that was thrown their way, seemingly all at once. Also to be such a young team and putting on that type of display on the biggest stage of the year. So much doubt by so many people, but the team held strong. Get your guns ready because I believe the bullets are back.
