College Spun running with it now: here
I wish I could see...
On the Finebaum show (I know, I know) an $ec writers and one guy from the Tuscaloosa Times most impressively both said they expect the Buckeyes to be in #4 spot at the end of the year. They said they can see the Buckeyes winning out, and even if Miss St won out they both would be ok with the Buckeyes moving ahead to that #4 spot. I was shocked. Seriously though, what is happening? I'm still suspicious.
I can agree with the merit of this post. #6 is fine right now. Im not complaining at all. We definitely have to take care of winning games. Like in boxing, you don't leave a match up to the judges, you want to guarantee a win, knock your opponent out. Looks like we have three knockout chances coming up. After the B1G championship game lets talk about where we should get ranked.
Both points equally as valid!
Why? He has more vacated final fours than national championship wins. Ill take a Coach K, or Izzo standard over Calipari any day.
And Calipari has more vacated final fours than he does national championships so....
So burn a kid's redshirt for half a season? I respectfully disagree. Assuming healthy means he was 100% recovered from mono, but he was still down in weight, and he hadn't been able to practice. Im going to side with coach here that he knows who his players are better than us. Matta has done more for this program than anyone else in my lifetime and he has put Ohio State in the basketball convo every year. Matta is the man, my opinion.
Seriously though, he did lead our team (tied in terrible 2011) in receptions all three years he started. He was Braxton's go to guy and safety valve. I don't know how he went undrafted either.
Everyone knows the SlowTen, especially Slohio, doesn't have skill players deserving to be drafted.
I always thought he said "we gotta win" not "we got a win." I think there is a big difference, it was loud in there, and out of context. The guy makes a living putting up poster board material, I think he is the last guy in the world that would purposefully provide it for another team.
I thought playing MN again would be fun because it would shut that guys mouth who thinks they are still better than us after losing at their house. However, now that Gordon had that 400yd game and everyone in the media is falling in love with them because of that run game I relish the opportunity for us to shut him down and make a statement. I believe after hearing about Gordon for a week our DL and LBs will take exception to that and be more than fired up. Im not worried about Wiscy at all, and honestly if you are, you don't want to go to the playoff to face any of the top 4. I think the opportunity to show off our D against that run heavy offense would go a long way to the committee.
I don't think JT wins this year, but obviously he has put himself in the conversation and deserves an invite to NY. His play has been outstanding, especially when you take into account the circumstances surrounding him even starting this year. What a special player.
LOL to any other fan base in the B1G that thinks they have a shot at the playoff.
You'd think so...but you'd also think injury/academics would be a tough card to play for rape and intimidation....
Wow. I truly expected them to do the ole "were going to let the legal system go through its process and play out before making any decisions."
Exactly. And is Jalyn Holmes, Schutt, Carter, Lewis, Munger, Frazier really THAT bad? I can't help but wonder if those guys fresh are really that much worse than our gassed starters? You figure a 100% Holmes has to be close to as good as a 60% Miller and Schutt has to be as good as a 75% Bennett. But Im no coach.
Yes. He already plays about 80 snaps a game and is always looking gassed in the 4th. The Chris Gambles of the world exist, but I say lets not push the big man more than he is already being pushed. He is a warrior and I have the utmost respect for his athletic ability, but for the love of God give this man some oxygen and a break during the games.
Think about guys like Rod Smith, and Dunn...they fumble the ball and you never see them again. It speaks a lot of what Urban thinks of Jalin and his ability to see him have a couple critical mistakes and keep going back to him. I think Jalin is starting to scratch the surface here and he is going to be one of the greats. No one is immune to mistakes, and lets not forget he is a freshman. By the time he leaves Ohio State we will only ever hear of the "Jalin Marshall" position in the Urban Meyer offense.
This post is funny because it highlights the negative fan...which is fine, you can be that way, but when you pick on someone make sure he isn't one of the best on the team at what he's doing. Watching the game yesterday the room full of fans I was sitting with, we were commenting how Bell was having an outstanding day, and then I see this questioning him? Out of nowhere. That PI he was called for yesterday was a bull call, falling down on top of a player that falls is not PI. Vonn Bell is the man, and he is getting better every week.
Not sure what you are arguing here? I said we need to finish games and play the 4th quarter better, and you went all in on that the difference was because of the young D...and now you say its because of TOs from the O. My point is that we need to play better in the 4th so blame whoever you want my point stands. We need to tighten up our ability to close games. 77-71 in the 4th quarter on the year isn't good enough. If you don't think having to recover an onside kick at the end of the game to ensure the opposing team doesn't get the ball back to tie or win...then I'm not sure what your definition of a close game is.
