Maybe that's the truth. Braxton should do what's best for him and his family. If he can rehab and have a good pro-day to show teams he's worth a 3-4 round pick then hats off to him. He doesn't owe OSU anymore than he's already given, which is more than most.
I think the unit is going to be good by the end of the November, the key is not being a sieve until they gel before then.
Not sure what you're basing that on, as Kent State is terrible. I think I still have PTSD of Michael Brewer finding people all over the field. If we shut Kiel down I'll feel a lot better.
I love Abdullah, I'd have no problem with him winning it.
I have an irrational dislike for Hackenberg thanks to the announcers treating him like a 19 year old Joe Montana. "That ball was underthrown but it was the right read!! Just outstanding!!" This must be how other basketball fans felt having to sit through the Craft years.
I think they;re a great idea in theory and could also be used to combat oversigning and unwanted grey/redshirts. Simply tell the kid they have to be committed to the school for as many years as the scholarship is, but if it's not renewed they are free to transfer without penalty.
The schools aren't going to suddenly decide to divert their BTN slush fund money into improving. Maybe the conference as a whole could agree that at least some portion has to be "reinvested" back in the programs in forms of coaching or upgrades to facilities. This would improve the teams as well as make financial sense - a better conference would get a better TV contract in a few years.
Was thinking his numbers might get discounted because of the quality of opponent, but nobody else really shined across the league (maybe Abdullah with another 100 yard game, but that was against Fresno).
In case anyones wondering, Trevor Williams (PSU) was DPOW.
USC beat Stanford. Yes they lost to BC but their resume is certainly more impressive than ours at this point.
It's odd to me that Pryor couldn't even latch on to someone's practice squad.
The story itself is about Noah, but I'm pretty glad Miller got lots of reps the past two weeks. If we're going to have a fighting chance against MSU, we need to be subbing fresh guys in the fourth quarter who can go all-out and get to the QB. The more depth the better.
I meant seniority as in "played more snaps", but you're right that Miller is a senior.
I like it. Earn your spot on the field, not through seniority.
I wonder how Dixon does in practice to have not passed Smith as the third wideout. Also, that's enough with the Bennett/Schutt ORs. It's not cute anymore.
"No thank you."
I get that they're most comfortable in the base offense, but if you need a specific defensive alignment to really be effective then maybe you're not as effective as you thought.
I think we all just had too much Kool-Aid, and bought into recruiting rankings and Meyer quotes. Imagine I was just some random guy in a bar and bragged to you about my team by saying "We lost our QB, RB, 4 offensive linemen, the receivers haven't been great, our new QB hasn't played since his junior year in high school but he looked cool on highlights and they let freshmen win the Heisman now so he's probably good for 5000 yards and 40 TDs. Our defense sucked last year and the two best players left for the NFL but there's a new coordinator so they're probably a lockdown unit now." You'd think (rightly) that I was out of my mind and just being a homer.
All that said, the season isn't lost, as our conference is terrible and no one on the schedule is unbeatable, and Michigan certainly looks worse than us.
This is still good for OSU. If you haven't noticed, our conference is currently held in the same regard as the Sun Belt. We need every team to get better (including ours). This helps that.
He actually got Ryan Fitzpatrick to turn in a decent performance in a win yesterday. Combine that with McGloin and guy might actually be a wizard.
Appreciate the write-up, but a pretty glaring omission of prospect 1A: any word from Sweat?
"Boy, that VT team, I'll tell you, they're a heck of a good football club. The one disappointment I have from Saturday was the poor punting in the first quarter. Really hurt us from a field position perspective."
Anyone know if recruits are usually around for pregame speeches? Or are they ushered to the sidelines for team-only time?
It's cool that Mickey's visiting, but I feel like his brother transferring basically kills the chance of him signing. Would be nice if Lebron can talk up Harris or Ahmad though.
Man there's just nothing worth watching before USC-Stanford at 3:30. Looks like I'll be doing laundry to justify the following 8 hours to my wife.
This makes me hypothetically happy, but I'll reserve my excitement for 2021 to make sure everything's still on the schedule.
So relieved we can get back into our normal routine of complaining about the secondary and asking why we can't blitz more. Though hopefully Bell and Bosa make those complaints outdated this year.
