Since I don't see Haubeil on there I am assuming you're projecting him as a grayshirt. Correct?
"John Burrow".... Gotta love JT
I was at 2 practices this year with the father of one of the players and from what I saw Torrance Gibson is an absolute freak. I know this is not big news, but unless those practices were anomalies, I don't see how they can keep him off the field. I've read here that he has issues with route running and blocking, but damn, throw him a screen pass and watch him go.
LeCharles Bentley's explanation sounds like a bunch of gobble-de-gook to me.
"So with the numbers crunch and turning away four star kids - how does that reflect back on the three star kids and even low four star kids we have committed?"
Who are these 3 star kids we have committed? Are you referring to the #2 kicker in the country?
"I'm all for improving the competitiveness of B1G football."
I see that statement a lot on these sites but I'm still on the fence about it. If Maryland and Rutgers start getting the better players out of the DMZ they could become a threat. Also pulling in 5 stars that were otherwise leaning to OSU would hurts us. Bottom line is if we go undefeated we're going to the playoff, I don't care how good the BIG is, and both of these factors make that a little less likely. Like I said, still on the fence.
I was agreeing with you. I didn't look up his actual times.
My point exactly. One of the greatest receivers of all time.
Too bad he doesn't have Jerry Rice's speed.
This is exactly my take on the situation. I think most of us agree that some changes needed to be made. Whether this is "shape up or ship out" or simply an honest assessment of their future here, the players leaving (at least so far) are players that were not getting the playing time they thought they deserved. I really don't know how OSU could address that in a presser. If it were starters that were leaving the program I'd be concerned.
I think Tate's injury was a big factor if Harris decides to transfer. I understand Matta not wanting to sit Lyle, Loving, Bates-Diop or Tate, but when Tate went down the Harris to point and Lyle to 2 seemed to me the better option. I would guess Harris thought so too. They played fairly well when that lineup was on the floor.
Even without the incredible athletic ability, this young man would have big things ahead of him.
"Don't think the officiating did the gals any favors" might be understated.
I'm guessing that would have been the first time ever that the top 2 DE's taken in the draft were from the same team.
I take it you're assuming Joe Burrow is out of the mix to start after JT.
I know I'm beating a dead horse here but I'll say it again: ZONE DEFENSE. Long but slow calls for zone. Ask Jim Boeheim. His kids weren't always slow but the length is what made them effective.
There used to be an outside court off Lane Ave. next to Ohio Stadium and my older brother and I and one of his friends would go down and play there during the summer. I think Havlicek would have been a senior then. We saw him going into the stadium a couple times, so one time we went over and an attendant let us walk in and we saw him running up and down the steps. The attendant told us that sometimes John would be there for hours. When I watched him play for the Celtics a few years later he seemed to never get tired. I think I know why.
"a position of responsibility" might be stretching it a bit. He's at TSUN.
I don't know how long ago that was but we're 24 games in now and he's saying we can't guard in man to man. To me that means the opposite of what he's trying to say. If man isn't working why not try a zone?
Still think we should try playing zone. Loving and Bates-Diop are too slow to play man but they have the length to be effective in a zone. We have either Giddens or Thompson inside to protect the bucket so we can put more pressure on the outside shooters. We're giving up too many uncontested 3s.
I remember those teams. Kenny Glenn went on to play for the Globetrotters.
