There seems to be a lot of worry on these boards about losing this coach or, that coordinator,or this one. While change can be worrisome it can also be refreshing! I am sure Urban has plans in the event of this or that coaching loss. He's a master at planning on such things.
Today is the anni of the attack on Pearl Harbor. My mind and thoughts wander to our forefathers and comrades that paid a steep price in defending our country and freedoms. My Father was stationed at Hickam Field where the fighter planes, parked close to each other to prevent sabotage, where badly damaged. He went on to fight at Guadalcanal. Salute.
I have read hundreds of comments over at Mgoblog and Black Shoe Diaries ( yep PSU fans have "diaries" that are sooo special to them) over the weekend, pre and post CFBP selection show. So much butthurt and not enough time to relish in all of it!
I don't think I could survive watching THE game with a Michigan fan like that BUT I know he wouldn't survive it!
Saw him play in on ESPN a few weeks ago. Clearly the best player on the field, Wade is a "must get". That guy is a baller! The Bucks likely will have opening in the backfield! Hope he sees that.
Caught him on TV the morning after we won the inaugural playoff Championship. Whoever it was talking to him asked him what he thought about OSUs impressive win over the Ducks. All he could come up with is that Urban was a dick for "running up the score as Zekes last score was unnecessary. Typical *ichigan-man hot take. Rich is a loser.
Surely COTY is in play this year except, you know, the incomparable Kirk over in Iowa...SMH
It'll be tough to win if we're not [balanced],” Urban Meyer said after the Michigan State game about this Saturday against the Wolverines. “I don't know the weather forecast yet. But we have to be balanced.”
I think being balanced is fine but if we run for 350 and pass for 150,or vice versa, we still could win handily!
Whatever, just beat those ass-clowns!
I agree with you. The NFL is a QB driven league. A franchise needs a highly accurate passer with the knowledge of where all the players are supposed to be on each and every play and has the ability to adjust quickly. Good QB play results in wins quicker than any other position. The Browns stopped believing that after they allowed Tim Couch to get his ass crushed with a substandard OL.
They think they can get bye with average QB's. For example they passed on drafting Rothlisburger, when they had the chance. They now seem to be in the mode of trading down to get extra picks. So they pass on great talent like Zeke and Joey Bosa. They need more great players not more draft picks!
Prediction: Zeke will get better than 200 yards rushing against the Browns.
I agree but the media and fans are obsessed with the rankings so its easy to get sucked into the vortex. .
Agree but has anyone here considered that this team may not be as "talented" as everyone thinks they are? We have seen little evidence of greatness from this team in the last three weeks and frankly I am concerned about NW's chances to pull off an upset!
Buckeyes 48-28.....although PSU claims score was tainted due to bad calls and OSU holding. The Joe-bots declares itself the winner-28-0.
You left out the fans, the alums and the white out effect.
Think Urban counts on these gimmicks to win a game?
If you had the choice of one, which would you take? A Indians World Series championship or a Buckeyes natty?
You can only pick one
If he were at most other schools he would be the focal point of that offense. It's past time to make him the focal point of this offense! Just give him the damn ball!
That Indiana game has been dissected to death. I watched the replay last night. We can play much better but we still managed to make them pay for their mistakes.
If memory serves JT was hurt on a "passing" play, not running. Also, he runs out of bounds quite a bit instead of taking direct hits...just saying. Still, 26 carries is too much against an opponent like Indy.
What to do about Rutgers? They are an embarrassment to our conference! Maybe they could change their name to "New Jersey State" and keep some home grown talent?
These guys are the "unsung awesome" that every championship team needs!
While the narrative is that the Hosers defense has improved and "caught up" with it's offense....I just don't see it! Their defense allowed Sparty the game tying score to force overtime last week. No doubt that their defense is "better" but let's not crown them. .
The Bucks will bring the wood to the Hosers. Not a doubt in my mind.
Ahh...shouldn't that be " I thinks?"
You gotta believe this team can beat you either way. The offensive line is the key. They run block and pass block with equal aplomb. The skill players are fast and can catch most passes they get their hands on. Just gotta keep grinding and keep the "edge'.
I predict Zeke will have a Hall of Fame career. Any team but the Browns should or would have seen his potential. But hey, they got an extra first round draft pick next year. Will likely spend it on a Barkevius Mingo type player.
