The Spring game is hard to gauge, starters were out and what was left of the talent was majorly split up. That being said, he looked better than Cardale.
Lol....these guys are really not understanding how Urban works. Plus Barrett has had a year to learn the playbook.
One thing Johnson does a very good job of, is pinning teams inside the 20. So just sheer number of yards per punt doesn't tell the whole story.
So other people can tell that it seems like the SEC is set up to have a better strength of schedule. I've thought that for a long time and I believe things are catching up with them now.
Braxton is ready, relax everyone. They just would rather him not hit his shoulder before the season.
I think their D will be solid, but do you think the second game of the season it will be solidified? They only have five returning starters on D.
I think a physical team like Sparty could spell a nightmare for Oregon. My biggest question is, however, how well do they handle losing so much on defense. It's clear that D'antonio has a system in place. If that system has taken root with the players behind last years starters, MSU will be tough like last year.
LOL at any team who thinks we won't be running over them still just because we don't have Hyde.
I still think he should have been put in the Clemson game when Brax injured his shoulder.
Now take our score and imagine if we had a typical Buckeye defense.
Something that still bugs me, though, is the interception that was dropped. Those refs....ugh.
We sure are loaded with talent this year. Does it feel to you that this is the deepest team we've ever seen?
It can't be easy, after two years we still haven't seen the full extent of Urban's playbook. He didn't have the WR core to implement effectively.
That clip of the Clemson game made it sound like they stopped our offense, when they didn't stop it. I think our problem in that game was our crappy defense.
I thought for years, will I ever see a miracle win from OSU again. Then that game happened. It's a shame we only won one more game that year, but that win made the season I'd say.
I still say Clemson played dirty hurting his shoulder.
That's a great idea.
If only we'd have had a brilliant play caller like Herman.
I can't believe the coach that said Braxton Miller isn't scary as a passer. He actually torched Clemson with his arm until they purposefully hurt his shoulder (cheaters). I hope he gets Heisman and our 8th National championship (15th if you count the ones they took from us) so we can laugh in the face of all our critics.
I just hope Chris Ash holds up his end of the bargain because I know Warriner will hold up his.
2006 41-14 to Florida
2007 loss to Illinois and 38-24 LSU
2008 35-3 at USC and lost to Texas in a shootout
2009 was decent
2010 31-18 loss to Wisky but gave up 28 straight points to Arkansas barely hanging on
2011-2013 was terrible...we know that
I agree with the Pat Narduzzi comment but Heacock got shredded every time we played a team with equal athletes. His defense was soft and hung back waiting for the offense to dictate to it (Florida, USC, LSU). I've been waiting so long for an agressive defense and Ash's style sounds like the right one.
Makes sense that you haven't seen anything all season, it hasn't started yet.
I think Dontre is technically listed at WR, but he has a special role on the team.
Rod Smith runs pretty well, I would like to see him on the rotation definitely.
Why not utilize all of our talent and keep fresh legs. That's more important than getting 1000 yard rusher.
