They need to make rules that kids are guaranteed 4 years of college even if they don't make the team and count towards the 85 limit. This ruthless part of big time college football is a major part of the argument that I usually disagree with that these kids need to be paid.
Looking forward to having an offense that is top tier against top level defenses again, anyone can roll up 50 points on MAC teams with Ohio State's NFL talent. We could probably put our defense on offense against some of those teams and still put up 40+ points.
Why redshirt, we need to get some of these guys into the game earlier in the 60-0 blowouts. None of the good ones stay for 4 years anyways and we bring in 1-2 studs every year. JT had better improve or will find himself on the pine behind these guys who can actually throw the ball.
The Ohio kid is being recruited by Alabama, Tennessee and Penn State and we added him as an add-on? Maybe they need to reevaluate what they are looking at in receivers considering how bad the group was this year.
sounds like Martell might be thinking about challenging JT for the starting job as a freshman
Weber never got a shot to get going. Then the fumbles started, if it isn't him bring in the backup. Ohio State runs the ball with its tailback and the coaches never gave it a shot.
Meyer did it masterfully with Tebow when he was a freshman as we well know when they stomped us in the National Championship game.
Wow, are you serious... fire one of the best coaches in NCAA history. Urban Meyer will continue to recruit, continue to beat Michigan and will win more National Championships. Get back to me when we actually lose more than 2-3 games and start losing to Michigan on a regular basis like Cooper did.
Another observation, where was Burrow? I am not a fan of 2 QB swap systems but we seemed to forget about Burrow all year and it would have sure been nice on a few occasions to throw him into the mix and see if he could spark the passing offense. He is a much more polished thrower than Barrett in the little time we have seen him.
We haven't been the same since Herman left, it is time to go out and get a young proven offensive mind from a smaller school again.
wow, sure would have liked to have seen this team in a rematch with Alabama.... I am not sure why the coaches/Barrett didn't feed Elliott more, he could have easily gone for 300 against the Irish defense. Hopefully, Meyer goes out and gets a better replacement for Tom Herman in the off-season.
this will be an awkward conversation to have with Urban...
I wish we would add a top level SEC team even if it just means going to a neutral location down south. Though beating Alabama last year has seemed to silence the whole SEC and B1G talk for awhile.
How many offenses have stolen Urban's spread after the Tebow years? Narduzzi had Dantonio's defensive scheme that he used at Ohio State in 2002. Just a silly comment in general.
so now we know the real reason Tressel resigned...
I can't imagine what happened at OSU band camp... but anyone who watched American Pie isn't shocked by this news.
schedule some decent non-conference teams... I am a diehard and I think Florida A&M was the first game I didn't even watch on TV past the 1st quarter more less go to the game. Ohio State football doesn't need gimics, just stop raising prices to the level of an NFL game and let the traditions of Script Ohio and the hair rising on the back of our necks when the band comes out the tunnel continue to be passed on to the next generation of Buckeye fans.
Craft has to be in the argument... considering he is only the all-time leader in steals
still wondering why we didn't target Ohio guys like Dakota Mathias (Purdue bound), Ahrens (going to MSU after not getting an OSU offer), Kennard (Duke bound) in favor of all these out of state guys. Matta wouldn't have got Craft if not for the Tennessee recruiting violations.
must have been Donald Sterling night
Not sure why we passed on Dakota Mathias here in Ohio, while this kid looks decent... Mathias would own him. I am sure he would have loved to be a Buckeye but now he will be a Boilermaker next year.
