So many memories from this year. The loss was definitely the worse Cooper loss imo to ScUM. The LB situation was sured up with the big Kat coming in, and the offense at times looked like the greatest show on turf did in 99, weapons everywhere. I remember screaming at the TV to put Jackson back in, because even though he only led the team to FG's in the first half, Joe G couldn't get the team past the 50, he was shell shocked. The worse loss in the Cooper era was EASILY the loss to Sparty in 98, but we can talk about that in two days.
Obviously we want him to do good, but boy could we have used him this year. He knows what its like to make plays in a championship run, I have a feeling we will need someone like that on the road this year.
He was the one who got the team to that level. Great recruiter, not the greatest in big games.
Thank you for this article. Too many times all we get is "so and so likes the Buckeyes". Thats great, but there are plenty of us out here who like to study football, and an article like this helps us quench a little of that thirst.
Not good when you lose the kids you had planned on building upon, but if they don't want to be here then oh well.
The slant pass last year to Mike Thomas opened up the running game last year at MSU. I know he dropped the WR screen in the second qtr today, but we should have thrown that pass to open the game. That would have scared the shit out of Dantonio, oh well, ifs and buts, candies and nuts.
Nebraska scored 39 on this same D, JT said after the game Sparty did exactly what they thought they were going to do, do the math. This is all on the coaches and this "bang my head against the wall and maybe the wall will give" mentality calling plays.
We should have hired Baylor's WR coach, or TE coach, or waterboy, or usher or.......
I like em, the gold Nike sign sets em off. More gold striping would have been nice though.
I hear you, but now Nebraska and Indiana are losing. Let's see how the day plays out
This is the guy I am most excited to see get here since I heard he signed. He was born to be a Buckeye, can't wait.
Lee is the most fundamental. He breaks down, keeps his head up, and attacks. You never see him dancing with the ball carrier, and he wraps up, he's my pick. Perry is a new school tackler, looking for the big hit, Vann too, they're not as fundamental as Lee.
I hate that the kid skipped the last part of his senior to enroll early and can't play. Hopefully he can play somewhere else.
Hounddogs is cool, the spicy sauce is legit. But Adriaticos is my favorite in Columbus.
As previously stated on this thread, Cincinnati is in Ohio, OSU IS the state school, so people from Cincy will just have to live with that fact until the end of time. And I too love Cincy, go there every summer with the family to reds games. And I also love Cleveland, great places to eat and hang out, where the hell is the bullet train from Cleveland to Columbus to Cincinnati??????
Deal with it, good night.
And he has the WORST turnovers at the worst times, drives me crazy. No senior should have careless turnovers, ever. I know turnovers are inevitable, but careless ones are not.
What makes Urban great is his assistants, always has always will. It allows him to implement his style and make sure it trickles down to the players the way he wants it to. Matta needs better assistants, his players have not gotten better, and that goes back to the assistants. In Matta's defense, his better assistants are head coaches elsewhere.
Third game Russell didnt show up in a big game. One thing to play good against 9 and 10 year olds (Minn, Rutgers, etc) another to show up when the older kids come to the playground.
I cant believe Harbaugh is this dumb, this is like trying to storm the castle with slingshots, wtf are you doing? Why would you try and piss off the Champ, who just so happens to be your BIGGEST RIVAL, and would love to beat you by 1,000,000,000 points??? STFU, bring me my slippers and go back to your cage gimp!!! He will be out of a job in four years.
Im pretty sure Jack Tatum was from Jersey, without using the google machine.
I hope we do land one of these guys when Russell declares, not sure I will ever get over losing Kennard and Bragg, two of the better prospects in a loooong time from Ohio. You think Urban would have lost both of them if this was football??? One maybe, but both, hell no.
Did Mariota piss on Urban????? That shit crae
I wouldn't say "the bullets are back" just yet. Still dont tackle good enough in space, except for Lee. If we had 3 or 4 more guys who tackled in space like Lee, then yeah they would be back. I even saw Bosa miss a couple in space in the Sugar Bowl. But tackling in space seems to be a lost art because of bad fundamentals, so who knows if we will ever see a team with 4 to 5 great tacklers in space.
