No. From what Urban has said Curtis has just been moved there so that he can be on the field with Zeke. If something happened to Zeke, pretty sure that Samuel would get the call.
I highly doubt Kareem Walker expects Zeke to be ahead of him on the depth chart when he gets to campus...Zeke is widely expected to go pro.
"I can make good decisions"
^^^He's already made one great decision
I wouldn't base JT's accuracy on his performance this Saturday...he's still recovering from a broken ankle...
My money is on Bosa getting the Heisman. It may be a longshot that he gets invited to New York, but I wouldn't bet against him taking what he wants from ANY offensive player...especially if a QB ends up winning it.
"Jones has no road wins"
^^^Mostly true (not as a starter but he has finished off blowout road games), but last I checked neither Braxton nor JT have any: (1) conference championship wins; (2) playoff game wins; (3) national championship wins; (4) wins against the SEC (especially against Bama); (5) wins against #1 (or top 5) team; (6) wins against an OOC champion.
I'd rather have (1)-(6) than road wins...
"finally going to see a scary Buckeyes Team in all phases of the game."
I take it you missed last season?
I'd rather have Larry Sanders just for the upside.
Dontre didn't play - he was hurt. Huereman was hobbled. Spence was suspended. Peppers was enrolled at TTUN. Etc.
Other key components to making a playoff run:
- offensive line
- wide receivers
- defensive ends
- (other) defensive tackle
- quality coaches
i guess if Rutgers somehow manages to find this you'll be in the playoffs, but it's highly unlikely. There's a reason Rutgers has only had one good year in the last 20...
Oden and I don't think it's close. Sometimes his nba failures make people forget his ncaa brilliance. He single handily tore apart Joakim Noah and Al Horford (when they were juniors). Oden was amazing all year and in the final game, the rest of the team just couldn't do anything...including Conley.
These parents and kids just don't get it...its a business!
If it were my son this wouldn't have been an issue because he would have committed to Auburn and I'd have $180,000 in my pocket. Then, he'd immediately transfer to tOSU. If Auburn said "we aren't gonna release him" I'd say "either you release him or I release the pictures of you handing us $180,000 for my sons commitment."
Another part of what set the SEC apart from the B1G was winning national championships. I'll take the national championships. We're definitely cleaner than the last couple of National Champions and undisputed too!
Cardale is gone after this year. JT might be gone after this year as well, but will likely be gone two years from now.
Depth Chart with TG as a redshirt Frosh/sophmore: 1) JT (maybe) 2) open competition among Collier, Burrow and TG. TG as a redshirt Soph/junior would be wide open.
If I'm TG I think tOSU is by far the best place to succeed as a QB. (i) I look at JT's injury history (season ending surgery 2 of the last 3 seasons); (ii) there are not four or five star recruits in or ahead of my class after 1-2 years (depending on whether JT declares for the draft; (iii) tOSU's system is EXTREMELY QB FRIENDLY and the staff is so great at developing QBs that any one of 3 QBs could start this year and be a Heisman frontrunner; and (iv) joining a potential dynasty.
The explanation can be explained using a simple analogy:
- If your friend hooks up with a TTUN fan's hot girlfriend you give him a high five and buy him a drink
- If a TTUN fan hooks up with your friend's girlfriend you kick the shit out of the TTUN fan
The violation would be if the University or it's affiliates were impermissably communicating with the recruit. A HS coach unilaterally communicating with a fanbase with the goal of eventually reaching the coaching staff is not a violation. Schools can't control what some HS coach does.
1) I completely agree with you
2) Obviously star ratings aren't everything, but another way to look at this might be:
- Assume Carlton Davis were uncommitted
- The targets left on the board are Isaiah Prince, Terry Beckner Jr., Porter Gustin, KJ Hill, Arnette, etc.
- We have limited spots
--> Although the sentiment of being dissapointed with lower rated players committing over higher rated players is discouraged, it's real. I think the general 11W community would much rather fill a spot with Prince, Beckner or Gustin than Davis. I feel like we're likely to land at least one of those studs and Davis decommitting means we don't have to do any shady roster maneuvering to make room.
Kinda seems like the 2017 class will be the best (star rating wise). Starting off the class by plucking the top talent in Florida, having a class leader (Clark) at QB so far in advance and having a top 3 overall player from Ohio (that lineman that's visiting) I think it will be epic.
Plus, the relationship building is starting on the heels of a national championship with a chance to repeat and sell that we're a blossoming dynasty.
Then again, 2016 does have a Bosa...and how great can a class be if there isn't a Bosa in it.
I think we should give the Amari Cooper thing a rest. He still had 2 TDs - wouldn't exactly say we completely shut him down. Really was more that Blake Sims sucked - if any one of our QBs were under center for them he'd have shredded us. That kid is a monster.
Mariotta did everything he could and played very well. And was very graceful in defeat.
Gordon...he played horrible, isn't half the man that Zeke is and still talked trash after the game about how they'd have beat OSU if they played again. I think we should focus all of our trolling on that piece of garbage.
$85,000 + benefits
Apparently they don't.
FSU has a higher ceiling. They have more NFL talent on their roster. When focused they are way better than Oregon. Jameis, for all of his faults, has been playing on two bum ankles most of the year and having a month off will go a long way to helping him get better and play better.
Add in that Oregon just lost a 1st round draft pick CB and FSU is scarier. Losing a shutdown corner makes a huge difference when facing an elite receiver. Personally, I think we would have beat Clemson if we had Roby playing.
No way they lose 7 losses with Harbaugh. Unless he completely cleans house and there are a ton of transfers. Look what he did at Stanford and SF. Let's just hope that he pisses of the Alums and players and gets ousted in 3 years.
He is about the only coach they could have hired that scares me. X and O wise, he might be the best college football coach next year. I don't think he will be able to recruit as well as Urban though, because everyone thinks he is an asshole. All in all I think I'd rather have Urban, but Harbaugh is scary.
TTUN wasn't gonna stay down forever. I would have been much happier if they got Stoops though. I'd prefer them to be a top 10-25 team every year and lose to us. Now I think they'll be a top 10 team every year and have a shot.
Harbaugh reminds me of an unstable Saban. Whatever he does with Linebackers is magic.
10 year war is starting again...
