I agree. In my mind he was the perfect replacement for Spencer. He has the bulk and strength to be a great blocker and he has more athleticism than Spencer. Neither is a true deep threat but I like Jalin's ability to go up and get the ball in traffic with is leaping ability. I am really looking for #21 PC to take over the deep routes because of his top end speed.
I love Boom but it is not hard to beat out a guy who got a $13.3 million singing bonus who quit before he even showed up in the NFL. There's no way that I would sign Richardson even if he showed up to camp running a 4.2.
+1 for your opinion. However, I think that it is painfully clear that this year's team is not last year's team. I agree that CJ is holding back or being held back but I need to see more execution.
LSU doesn't have a prayer vs Bama, they're 1 dimensional just like UGA. Bama has the best front 7 as well as the most depth at that position in all of college football. Did you notice that LSU's QB was 4 of 15 against one of the worst defenses in college football? When you can run for 400 yards and cant even complete 50% of your passes off of a play action pass vs EMU, you're not beating Bama. You can dream about a SEC team not being in the playoff but it aint happening. The winner of Bama vs Florida in the SEC title is in the playoff.
Also think that Baylor wins the Almost-12 this year. Clemson is sketchy too. They've been known to become mentally defeated vs Florida State.
I upvoted you for your heart and not wanting a SEC team in the playoff, but I have to disagree.
EZE blocking ability is not new news, this cat is way late to the game. You'd rather ride down a slide of razor blades into a pool of alcohol than have EZE put his hat in your chest on a lead block for QB sneak.
I agree, I think that is some of the lost production on offense. CJ is certainly not running with the authority that he did last year. I think that it serves 2 purposes for Urban. 1. It makes CJ have to read quicker and into a later progression to a 3rd or 4th option 2. it also keeps him healthy which has already been stated. I think that CJ will again earn the hearts of all Buckeye fans very soon.
I agree that former players have earned their right to their opinion but they have to be smart enough to understand if their comments are going to help or hurt the program that they profess to love. It's not the rock you throw into the water, it is the ripples that cause the damage. Keeping things in-house is a much better method than going to "look at me so I can be relevant again" Twitter. When you bash a coach that just won your alma mater a National Title and is currently undefeated, you have to wonder what his intentions are.
I really do not like the offensive philosophy of UM going back to the ground and pound which appears to target a depth issue with our defensive line. Also dont like the fact that it sets up play action to TEs and FBs that our LBs and Safeties are susceptible to because they like to over pursue. I have no idea who will be ranked where but I do know that as long as we beat UM, I will be happy.
I wouldn't lay back or coast until the last 5 games of the season. I don't think that we have established anywhere near the execution level to even go into maintenance mode, let alone lay-back mode. I dont know what team you have been watching but they sure as hell arent dialed in yet.
Nothing pisses me off more than a traitor. Nothing is more bassackwards than a Basketball logo on a football jersey. I agree that the move to Nike from Adidas is a good move from a recruiting aspect but the Jumpman is completely ridiculous. However, it is a perfect fit for me since I dislike Michigan and MJ. All I need now is for Desmond Howard and Kolesar to create something for them to wear.
Yep, forgot the year. Wish I could forget Plexico Burress.
Still not a coach or anywhere near qualified to do Urban's job. Obviously glad that they were all at tOSU but I don't like former players criticizing a coach of an undefeated team, especially a coach they didn't play for. You'd never hear Timmy T bad mouth Urban, ever.
Nothing worse than losing to TTUN. Permanently scarred for life. 1996 put me into a fit of rage that was almost equaled by the 97 MSU game. Those were legit National Championship teams that never got a shot because of coaching.
I thought that maybe it came from your phone and you were bitten by auto correct. Lord knows I have been victimized by that on occasion....and then there are the times that I cant spell.
Didn't say that someone couldn't criticize the team, I do it too. Certainly didn't question anyone's fan-hood either. I just think that there are a lot of people who will think that former players thinking the same as they do validates their opinion and it doesn't because they aren't qualified to do Urban's job. They are fans just like everyone else.
Herman to Texas was a thought before he even thought of leaving OSU. This isn't a new school of thought and hopefully he would bring Major Applewhite back with him. Those 2 with a Defensive Coordinator "Not named Muschamp" would be able to right the ship at Texas.
Jax, I love you for that comment. Muschamp is a complete idiot.
No kidding, this is the answer. Subtract 4 turnovers from that game and tell me what the score would've been?
Spielman, Carpenter, and Carter? Did any of those 3 guys win a title at OSU? Urban has. Have any of those 3 coached a College Football team? Urban has a very well documented track record of doing his job quite well. I'm sticking with Urban! I love those 3 guys but just because they played at OSU doesn't make them coaching geniuses. Lets be honest, you cant be a big-time college football coach and let other people outside of the staff dictate or influence your decisions. They aren't out there everyday seeing what Urban and his staff are seeing. They get to see 1 day out of 7.
Are you spelling Stanford with an additional "d" on purpose or have you never seen the name "Stanford" written anywhere?
$350,000 is a drop in the bucket to either of these sites. Anytime $ and gambling is involved, you can bet that someone is going to cheat or have information a vast majority do not. This isn't new in the gambling world.
We referred to him as "Killer" Steve Miller throughout my teenage years. Just like radio stations "get the Led out" when playing Led Zeppelin, we used to "put in the Killer". Put in as in put in the cassette.
Plus 5 million for the Bon Scott love. However, ACDC still rocked after 1980 so Im not going to pick on Brian Johnson.
How has that tough Va Tech team faired since we beat them? You can throw that rock both directions
Never been on it, wasn't on it today and have no plans of getting on it. I'd give the man the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't him unless he says otherwise.
Y'all don't understand that the refs are owned by the bookies. Number 1 team in the nation with the largest fanbase hasn't covered in the first 5 games. lol
Please don't let Zeke be in the Heisman conversation. He is the only bright spot on the offense right now and they don't need anymore distractions. Not that I have any idea what is distracting them now but I sure as hell am not in favor of adding another one.
