Kicker is probably the weakest link. DL depth is probably the second one. If Bosa or Washington missed a few games due to injury I don't think we have a proven guy stepping in.
but I think this team could go down as the best of all time
Let's chill out with that. We won the title last year, which is cool, but someone wins the title every year. This team hasn't done anything to move them into all time status yet.
The good news is that the NCAA has always been fair and consistent when doling out punishments. There is an equal chance that he gets a verbal reprimand or a lifetime ban while vacating victories back to the year of his birth.
I agree. Which is why I'll probably wind up watching the first quarter again before switching to Netflix. Third string vs walk ons by halftime doesn't really count.
I said the same above and earned a DV for my worries. "Urban Meyer's been hit with something not even he could have seen coming." I mean, that's not even true. People have been talking about the QB situation since September.
Demerits to 11W for the clickbaiting headline. Thought he found out his wife had cancer or something.
I guess everyone has different definitions, but to me you can't really "grind away" while making $3.5M.
Meyer said he "can't imagine" Ohio State doing more to keep that in the forefront of things to take care of its players.
I'd like to see more mandatory health screenings, for one. Kosta had concussions his friends knew about that the doctors didn't.
That means Beck better get ready for long walks between the box and the locker room.
Considering how Meyer likes to criticize after a 50 point win, it's more likely that every single turnover, every missed tackle, every shanked kick, and every failed third down conversion are going to be played on an endless loop.
Sparty is going to be the best team we play all year, so they're my guess by default.
Yea I don't think there was anyone clamoring for him to be made the permanent coach. It takes zero courage at all to hire Urban and his two rings. I don't know why they're trying to paint it like it was some giant leap of faith.
Which is a dumb theory. They had emails proving that Tressel lied to the NCAA about Tatgate. I don't care if you have a ham sandwich for an AD, the coach is going to have to go after that comes out.
The ACC opponent should be Miami, as we both finished 6th. The fact that we don't know the rest means its going to be a lot of paycheck games, or else they would have announced already.
I think it's going to have to be Tate. Certainly don't see Loving doing it.
All rookies sign four year contracts (with the last one-two years at the team's option). After that, as FAs they're free to sign for however long they like, as Lebron did.
That's not true. The rookie pay scale has the salaries pre-set for all first round picks until 2022. Russell would get zero benefit from the new TV money next year.
There's not a new CBA, there are television deals kicking in next year that will drastically increase the salary cap. But the current CBA still has a rookie pay scale that Russell would be subject to for his first contract. While the scale would presumably go up with a higher salary cap, the most money is made when you first hit free agency, which would be after 3-4 years (if the team exercises their option). So the most lucrative move is to get to the league ASAP to start that clock towards year 4.
TL;DR: He gone.
Nonsense. Duke will always top that list.
Also, go Izzo.
I could be wrong, but I believe the way the process works is it's just a redshirt for the time being. After his fourth year he can apply for an additional year of eligibility by pointing to this season lost due to injury. But there isn't a way to call it a medical redshirt without that waiver.
He played in one game, against Kent State, and managed four carries for 20 yards, but did not register a reception.....
The fact that [he] worked his way far enough up the depth chart to warrant playing time in just the third game of the season is noteworthy.
I'm gonna have to disagree with this. I think you're reading too much into the fact that he got playing time against Kent State. You know who else got playing time against the Flashes? Everybody. In addition to Dixon, Ball, Dunn, Rod Smith, and something named "Jeffie Johnson" all had carries. Marcus Baugh had a catch. Ron Tanner and Jeff Greene each returned a punt.
At the highest level the swimmers are usually fighting for hundredths of seconds between them. Which is why it's so unusual to see two pointed in different directions:
I get what you're saying, but she set the world record. And then broke the new record. And then broke the new new record. For a RB it would be similar to Gordon running for 420 yards against Nebraska. Then 460 against us. Then 520 against Oregon.
