Safety is not an easy position for a freshman to master. It's understandable that the coaches may have been a bit reluctant to start him last season. Based on how he's playing now - I'd say they're handling him about right.
That's true. And remember, we played some heavy passing offenses earlier in the season, i.e., Cincinnatti. Safeties are gonna get more tackles than middle linebackers in those games -
"Old Nick" Satan. You don't need to alter his name much at all and you've got Beelzebub, himself - X2. Of course, he has a creepy, self-locking door in his lair. Enough to frighten even a gladiator like Joey Bosa - when he was 15! It'll be a different story on New Year's Day.
And I agree with everyone who's tired of hearing the term "SEC speed". I ran track - I can assure you - you can get smoked by an elite athlete from Michigan State just as badly as you can by a guy from Tennessee. I did. The point is that he game will be between Alabama and Ohio State - not the SEC and the B1G.
In any case, I can't wait to shut 'em up.
Good point, High St Hooligan. If a fat chick goes to the same gym as Kate Upton, does that make her "Kate Upton Hot"?
Well put, Carlsbadbuckeye. We have a chance to do that now. -
I likr the cheerleaders in the Pac-12
You're probably right, Ctbuckeyefan. But after the Hoke era, you'd think they'd be happy with Bo-caliber production. It's such a mess - and the expectations are so unrealistic (at least, short-term) - they may have trouble landing a big name.
I know we should want a decent program up there for the sake of the credibility of the conference - but I must admit to some fiendish delight in watching them self-destruct.
"... the best arm out of anybody in college football" Wow! I can't believe i just read that - coming from an ESPiN guy, no less.
I hope nobody from Alabama reads this. Oh - that would require actually "reading" - - - nevermind -
TTUN's 2015 recruiting class is down to practically nothing. Even if he comes - it'll be years before they could pose a real threat.
Bo wasn't a big name nationally until after he took the job. For that matter, neither was Woody -
Can I just send mine there anyway?
Staying "grounded" will be key. That's where Urbz and Herman come in to play.
I just read that Mel Kiper said that Cardale has the best arm in all of college football, incidentally
Funny, Daddypete. My mom used to say: "A foul mouth is a sure sign of a weak vocabulary" -
Can't pronounce theri "Rs" or "Gs" either -
With all due apologies to Jimmy Buffett
His siswife, too -
While we're dreaming - why give 'em 14?
I really like our chances in this game, though. Even when I'm not dreaming -
Yes, Buckeyentexas - coaches have been saying it pretty much since the beginning of the sport - - probably because it's true - - - Penalties, turnovers and special teams could be the difference in a close match-up like this -
Pellini is basically a good guy - and may have been absolutely correct in his comments - but it was unwise to state it publicly. Inappropriate behaviour for a big-time head coach. In the future, he should go in to all public appearances with some talking points in mind - and stick to them. He's obviously not quick enough on his feet to wing it. Leave that for the professionals like Urbz.
Pat Forde is just one of many pundits who regularly disrespects Ohio State. It's been said before - but it bears repeating - now that we're in the play-off, Urbz is loving it. It's so much easier to paint an "us against the world" picture when nearly everybody really is picking you to lose.
And in this case, they're not just picking us to lose - they're picking us to lose badly. Recently, I heard a pundit call the Sugar Bowl little more than a bye for Alabama. You wouldn't have to be Urban Meyer to get your team fired-up after that.
For me - it's a love/hate thing. I hate to constantly hear these dismissive comments about my beloved Buckeyes. But on the other hand, I love having such an easy source of extra motivation. I want to see angry team on January first.
i understand why it makes us crazy when everyone picks agaisnst us. It's a bit insulting.
But I also see your point. You know Urbz is turning all the disrespect into fuel. These guys may be biting their tongues right now - but they're gonna be so fired up by game day, it'll be bedlam.
Yes. Tim Tebow was the best left-handed, third-string, gay quarterback in NFL history -
Please note the sarcasm font. It's an old Joke told by his FSU and UM and various other rivals down here in Fla
I actually kinda like him - but I always thought that was funny. Thought I'd share it -
Yep. Carbine - er, Cardale Jones is just warmin'up
I thought so -
You know it's good when you don't need to use the sarcasm font -
