You're obviously a Braxton fan (I am not} because there is not one stat that would back up anything you said.
Don't give up do you. Aside from your tunnel vision, do you have any actual facts to back up your view.
Where do you get this stuff? Check the stats. The only game Zeke got more than 20 carries was Oregon. If you figure his yds per carry for the last 3 games against the rest of the season it's not even close.
J T has a huge advantage? C'mon. . I've been a HUGE J T fan all year and would have bet anyone that he would be the starter next year. But even Saban said Cardale adds another dimension to the OSU offense. I don't think it was a coincidence Zeke had by far his best 3 games against 3 of the 4 best defenses we saw all year. You could say it was the improved play of the offensive line but they didn't all of a sudden improve that much in the 13th game. The QB job is up for grabs next year and I'm now leaning toward Cardale's chances.
Well deserved. Add to that how much fun he was/is to watch. "The Shrug" was only the cherry on top.
"I'm not quite sure what the SEC bias is. Hard-pressed not to say it's not the best league top to bottom."
Hard to believe there are 135 posts on this and nobody noticed that statement is a double negative. Meyer may have misstated it but what it actually means is the opposite of what you're thinking.
I agree. The Harris visit had already been set up when Weber told Meyer he was in. Cancelling the Harris visit would have been indicating Weber committed. I think Meyer knew that Harris was going to wait, so he made the visit and just didn't put on the full court press.
I'm with ya. I know it's only hyperbole but I think it serves to degrade our team in comparison to Bama. If we play anywhere close to that in all 3 phases we'll be playing on January 12.
It was reported somewhere that he could have gotten more money when he was hired but he chose instead to have a higher budget to lure good assistants.
OK, you get to be the one to tell Bosa, Bennett, Zeke, Cardale etc. we don't want them to embarrass us.
If they'd have gotten the ball back with a couple minutes left I think they would have won. But if ifs and buts were candy and nuts........
"The only thing truly contemptible about him was that there was nothing truly contemptible about him."
He does seem like a decent guy. I was a little irritated with him calling us "Ohio" but I guess we wouldn't use the word ##ichigan, so I can't hold it against him too much.
I don't think there is any chance Hoke is back next year. Waiting til January to fire him will only make Wishigan look worse.
Not seeing the advantage having their starting field position inside the 25.
inside the 25: 5 TDs in 29 tries.
at the 25: 4TDs in 32 tries.
Who was the other 200 yd rusher?
I'd like to see a list of assistant coaches salaries. I remember it being reported that Urban left some money on the table to be able to attract big time assts. That's laughable. He shouldn't have to do that. It's embarrassing. Meyer's one of the two best, if not THE best, coaches in America. Ohio State has the resources to pay top dollar. Probably only Texas and Alabama are in the same discussion. Dantonio? Strong? Sumlin? ...Embarrassing. Gene Smith should donate his pay instead of Meyer having to. (sorry about the bold type)
Young man's got some serious guns already.
I coached a baseball team that played in Canada once. The coach told me the complex was once a sad farm.. I was thinking..."crops wouldn't grow?, people died?. Later someone told me he was talking about those slabs of grass.
I think he said "damn turnovers" at halftime but "get the heck out of here" at the end. Could be wrong.
I think think the weather affected their vocal cords. Didn't affect the effort though.
Are you saying that Amir IS a prototype defensive center? Are you saying that Amir WILL improve with minutes? He's the same player that he was since he got here. Too soft, too slow, no hands and foul prone. I watched both games with the hope he had turned the corner but it's same old, same old. Time to move on. I'll take Lee all day in the post. He's more physical, shoots better and runs the court. He's not 7 foot but he plays more like it than Amir does.
Wrong place. Responding to WW Troy.
You make my point. Who's playing best now. That's supposed to be the goal, along with conference championships. Our loss came early without Heisman candidate Miller and replacing 4/5 of our offensive line. We're playing great now. Colin Cowherd has us in over Fla. St. even if they're undefeated. I know he doesn't have a vote but the perception that they're not a great team is out there. One loss late in the season could do it. I'm just looking for a way in but, like I said, I had to strain my brain to even figure out this scenario. I'm taking a nap.
I don't think they can put any 2 loss team in ahead of 12-1 OSU BIG champion.
The way I see it is this:
The SEC can only get 1 team in. (1)
Miss. St. beats Bama, or if Bama wins one of them has to lose 1 more.
Bama- Auburn or SEC Championship Miss. St.-Ole Miss or SEC championship
I don't think they will put 2 Big 12 teams ahead of OSU (2)
Those two are probably in. We need one of the following to happen:
Arizona to beat Arizona St. and then beat Oregon in the PAC 12 championship.
Fla. St. to lose one-@ Miami, Boston College, Florida or ACC Championship
If they go by THIS YEAR'S body of work from Fla. St., OSU could sneak by them.
OK guys, one at a time pointing out the flaws in my scenario. This is too complicated for me anyway.
Just speculation but if you're talking about the players it could be because they know he's a warrior. I'm not sure when the injury happened but I know it was before the two big catches he made late in the game. You could see him limping. Speaks to what kind of kid he is. Like most people I was yelling about about the bad plays he made earlier in the game but I now have a newfound respect for him.
