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.
I personally want Braxton to start camp as the starter, and after the first pick, in goes JT. And after JT's first pick in camp, in goes Cardale. And after Cardale's first pick, back to Braxton. That might be a little quick on the trigger, but I think the pressure on Braxton knowing a top five heisman finalist is right on his heels, and JT knowing a guy who took the team to the NC is right on his heels, and Cardale knowing he was just considered the 3rd string QB will bring out the best in all three, and we will be the beneficiaries.
Their uptempo is the only thing to worry about, but a healthy rotation upfront should minimize the affect. Mariota started the game off with overthrowing receivers, and FSU not accepting the gifts he was giving (If I remember right, 2 picks were dropped in the first 10 minutes by FSU). Plus, Cook was running for 5 yards a pop easy, Williams too, just couldnt hold onto the ball. Blown coverages by FSU, TO's by FSU, and a QB who would rather argue than listen is why FSU lost, we won't repeat those mistakes. Good guys by 10.
PHYLISS FROM MULGA IS UP NEXT ON PAULS SHOW!!!!!!
The O-liine did good on runs, but Price was in Jones' lap on pass plays, have to figure out something there. Great game plan, good execution, really proud to be a Buckeye today. And please don't troll Bama sites too hard, just Finebaum.
Yeah really, 47 has been checking dirt all game. His eyes are stuck on the QB and not the TE's and WR's doing backflips behind him.
Hopefully Stanford will turn the ball over a bunch, MD's pass defense is suspect at best. The LB's are way too slow.
I like EZe going North and South with a one cut move and using his power, but we have all scene him get cut down trying to run sideline to sideline, not his strength.
I keep seeing people say they are young. The bench might be, but we have 3 SENIOR starters. A PG who has the most untimely to's and couldn't hit the side of a barn, a C who could care less about being on the floor, and a SF who is a jack of all trades, but a master of none. This team will only go as far as these three LEAD them, not much happening in that department so far, but there is time.
If you want to read an article about the players and the game, there are plenty on 11W, this article however, was not meant to be one. Johnny says that IN THE OPENING PARAGRAPHS!!
Great story. I was worried about him after "that tweet", but it sounds like he is growing up. I too grew up in extreme poverty, and coming to TOSU and graduating was a life changer for me and my family. I hope he, and all athletes for that matter, appreciate their opportunity and take advantage of it by graduating and becoming productive members of our society.
Thank you for starting this. My brother and I have said this for the past couple of years. Look at Sam Thompson and Shannon Scott's arms, zero cuts. At that age it takes very little to build up muscle fast, they look like they have NEVER lifted a weight. I would love to hear Matta's weight training theory.
