See but that's the issue.  Of course he doesn't owe me anything.  However, if there isn't a list of goals to hit that anyone outside the football facility knows, then how is anyone supposed to be able to judge whether this is just swept under the rug

I know I'm not getting a checklist of things.  I was asked what I would have liked to see happen

Comment 02 Nov 2015

I think he should have been suspended more than 1 game.

If he wanted to go the summer scholarship route, give me a tangible checklist of things Barrett must do to get his scholarship back.  Maybe, attend X number of hours worth of education on this or get a X.X GPA in both fall and spring.

Meyer didn't have to give Barrett any additional penalty.  1 game is the norm in the 'industry' for this transgression.  I don't like that but it is the standard

Comment 02 Nov 2015

Well that is not how I took it.  Perhaps you are right.

However, based on the language, I didn't see anything saying Barrett was losing his scholarship beginning in Summer 16 with a chance to earn it back.  I could be completely wrong but the language saying he lost his scholarship for "a semester" doesn't mean to me that it could be 3-4 semesters lost from this transgression

You just wait til OSU inevitably losses a game.  Will be #firemeyer through #firemeyerswaterboy all the way through these posts

I'm pretty sure Mike Weber said something along the lines of "Zeke will be gone after next year then it's my time"

And, not to take away from Zeke in any way, but Fournette Cook and Chubb may all come out after next year.  Why be 1 of 4 when you can be 1 of 1?

Well...good thing OSU doesn't have any player named Travis Powell.

People love to act like Bell never makes mistakes.  He does, just they aren't as commented about after the play happens.  He blew the coverage on Indiana's first TD if I recall, then looked around like that guy wasn't his responsibility (I don't know the coverage but he was the only guy out there so I expect he was responsible for the open man)

Comment 21 Oct 2015

Less than a lot of the guys on the line is my guess

being tall is a huge disadvantage on the bench.  The guys who do the most reps at the combine are usually shorter. 

DT and OG usually are heavier and shorter

This X1000.  Barkley is a very good player, but OSU was giving up runs in the second half to prevent the big pass play.  He was shifty as F though

Comment 19 Oct 2015

We had the same issues last year until facing MG in the B1G title game.  It's run gap discipline not issues with being blocked. Our DL needs to fill their lanes better and our LBers need to fill gaps.  Seems easy in words but not in execution

Comment 18 Oct 2015

This bye week after Rutgers will be much appreciated.  Let everyone stop popping pads for a full 5 days or so and then get back after it.  Get Perry/Lee and really everyone healthy for the stretch run 

Comment 16 Oct 2015

There have been numerous posts about Jones in last years games being less than he appeared

I don't understand it, but he's the starter until the Buckeyes lose a game.  Let's just support him and hopefully he gets better.  He looked ok last week, but still can put the ball better on the receiver than he did (both to Miller were not on him, the long ball to marshall was a very good throw

Comment 15 Oct 2015

After watching the special I am still flabbergasted how Barrett isn't starting for this team.  The way the entire team rallied around that guy is simply amazing.  The behind the scenes stuff with the celebration after PSU and MSU really hit on it, and even after Michigan.  I'm happy he is getting more involved in the game plan for sure

Comment 14 Oct 2015

I was one of the people who said Michigan would be good before this year because there was already talent there.  However, the lovefest they are getting recently is kind of funny.  They have looked good, no denying that, but they have a lot more to prove than beating "top 25" teams at home.  I put that in quotes because lets see how the season shakes out before we count those top 25 wins (for any team for that matter).

I think Sparty gets them as this is the underdog mentality D'antonio loves to be in.  He will have them so fired up

Comment 14 Oct 2015

My top concern is turnovers inside our own side of the field.  That is the only thing that has kept teams in games against us.  The D has given up more points than I would like, but not many teams have been able to put together long drives on us.  It's either a fluke 80 yard run by a QB (bad contain) or usually ends in a punt.  NIU put OSU into pressure based on a bad first quarter, giving up an INT inside our own half and them starting inside our 30.

I am not concerned about matchups as I think OSU is fine everywhere.  The interior of the OL was sluggish but I think most would agree has been improved the last couple of weeks.

Comment 12 Oct 2015

I am not a huge fan of this move overall.  I guess I don't understand why you trust Cardale between the 20s but not inside the 20.  That's really the part of the field that matters most isn't it?  I mean unless we are really going to become an offense where we go deep 7-10 snaps a game of course.  If we do that, we need to have a gunner back there.  If we do 1-3 which seems to be more the offensive gameplan thus far, I don't know if I get it
