first off, the term viper is no longer used at Ohio st. Ever since Ash has come in, that term has died. Our DE's no longer flip sides based on strength calls. We now have just RE and LE.

Bri'onte Dunn will be the #2 back. Coaches said he has had a hell of a camp, and he's also healthy, unlike webber.

Wilson is too small to be considered an outside wide out. And on top of that, Parris and McClaurin are way higher on the depth chart. Teammates have already stated those 2 are the fastest guys in zone 6. Also, Coach Zach stated that clark isn't quiet ready yet to be a contributor at ohio st, so he shouldn't even be on the chart.

brady taylor is the back up center, you can see that if you re watch the scrimmage video closely. Evan Lisle is actually the back up RG.

cam burrows is good enough to be a #2 safety. Joel hale can only play nose, so some one else will be the back up 3teq, my guess is mike hill or munger. I would agree with everything else.

well, JT also broke many of braxton's old records/big ten records as well, so that has to account for something. I think zeke and JT compliment each other better because they both can carry the rock, so you can't key in on 2 during the mesh. Cardale has a great arm, but what people forget is that you have to have the wr's that can get deep, which we may still have (even tho devin is gone), but we will have to see. Those extra 10 carries were probably a by product of starting a new QB and being a little more conservative. I'm just leaning towards JT, but wouldn't be mad either way. But in my heart of heart, I wish it was braxton with a healthy arm.

ehhh... sorry coach... but technically, OSU corners don't play man 2 man coverage all game long. We run quarters match up zone. Once a WR breaks towards the hash, the route gets passed off. Now if the wr runs vertical, then our corners lock on. That's just rah-rah talk to get recruits to buy in. But that ain't the truth. Anybody who thinks i'm wrong, go ask Kyle or Ross. Or we can break down film.

Take carries away from zeke?? Ummm guy, in case you don't know, urban staple to this offense is the zone read, which by design, will take carries away from zeke for the better, and JT runs that better than Cardale. So that point is mute. Zeke got hot those last 3 games more so because of our line play and play calling. Urban admitted this. Also, Zeke had great games against cinci, maryland, and mich state as well, that was with JT under center. Lastly, a lot of teams played us with 2 high safeties. Mich. state played us 2 high all game long. Cardale's arm isn't the reason teams played us 2 high. Most defenses today combat spreads with 2 high qtr coverage, regardless.

People act like JT can't throw a good deep ball. He may not have the pure arm strength of jones, but he makes up for that with timing, and ball placement. JT does a better job of getting the ball out his hands early and throwing to a landmark. Besides, most deep balls travel only 40-50 yards tops. JT has plenty enough arm strength for that.

What jones does well is firing the ball on a rope and connecting deep down the field. Case in point, the dig route he threw to jalin vs bama. To fire the ball in that traffic, between the hashes, and on a line, that's a grown man throw.

its not just the physicality, it's also the mental aspect of taking a hit. Brax has to prove he can run a route, snag the ball out the sky, hold on to it, and eat a kill shot. Then get back up and do it again. Slot wr is not easy to play.

Comment 24 Aug 2015

...and what if Dunn proves he can bang between the tackles better? and it's pretty obvious Sam will be playing more slot this year

Comment 24 Aug 2015

ummm buddy... most outside backers are aligned to split the difference between slot and end man... so they are in position to make a play on either or. Your X's and O's are lacking some.

Comment 18 Aug 2015

Finally someone who gets it. People act like the opposing team isn't going to recognize 4 QB's there. I bet we hardly ever use any gadget plays this year because quite frankly, we don't need them. And people please, cut this nonsense about "oh, DCoords are gonna lose sleep now with all these QB's on the field". No there not. This is D1, not pop warner. They're just gonna tell their defenders to stay true to their keys and that's it. D-Coords will lose sleep on trying to figure out how to defend our run game, or our drive route concepts but not this gimmicky stuff. It hurts to hear fans who really don't understand the game talk about football.

At last, someone who understand the difference between a 1 shade and a 3teq. Thank you. Schutt and Hale are 1 shades, so they will not be backing up Ado at 3teq.

And lastly, Landers is a true freshmen. It is very rare that a true frosh along the DLine is gonna step in and "blow up". Urbz even stated that OL/DL usually take a redshirt their freshmen year to develop their bodies and get into college game shape. So i doubt the kid sees grass this season. Sometimes you get a Cam Heyward or Noah Spence who can come in as a true frosh and start on the line,  but that's rare. More realistic are guys like mike hill, sam hubb, tyquan, jay holmes... guys like these who have been with the program for a while and have developed are more likely to "blow up"...LOL

can somebody shut this Bowling Green guy up??... who gives a shit what the SEC is doing.... this is THE ohio state.... we're good enough to beat anybody. We recruit, develop and win national titles. It's Ohio State vs every one else. If espn wants to keep riding the SEC let 'em... cause come january, we'll beat who ever they throw at us. I'm tired of this SEC talk. We slayed that monster once already, and we'll do it again at the end of the year. SEC means shit to me. They're mortal. We were the ones that proved this. End of story, go bucks.

ummmm... ginn was def. a deep threat. Anytime you have the ability to go vertical, separate from the db, stack him, and catch the ball over the shoulder, you are a deep threat. Texas...norte dame...michigan... all learned this the hard way

Comment 05 Aug 2015

umm... a true deep threat has to be able to beat the jam, get a step on the defender, stack him, maintain body position, track the ball, adjust, and then reel it in. all the things we have not seen from brax, ever. i doubt it he's that guy. it's more than just being fast.
