they really could financially go out on their own and go independent like Notre Dame. would be able to schedule better competition. idk how it would work out though...id like to see them in the ACC maybe idk or SEC east
it was really evident being in attendance how focused they were...they were loose and laughing around pregame but it was more of a subtle we got this swag. then when they came out of the tunnel the focus was bang intense and they just hit Wisconsin with a 1000lb hammer and never let them get out of the locker room...
love all of the stuff you put together Remy thank you so much it is awesome to get this type of statistical analysis and history lessons all in one place!!! here's to hoping we get one more of these this year (championship game)
the one thing that the coaches seemed to have struggled with defensively is when an opposing offense comes out and breaks tendencies. Wisconsin played right to there tendencies and we saw how that went...hopefully they adjust better and quicker to what Saban and Kiffin cooked up during the off time
wasn't just the 10 yd cushion it was the fact that even when it was evident they were throwing the screen wide our db's and outside lb (perry) were to slow to get out there and the other receiver just had to get one block and bang it was 10yds or more for watkins
in the B1G Championship game the dline was going 4-6 A to B every play they were on the field...the defense as a whole was...if they can keep that up and be sound in responsibilities they will own the line of scrimmage battle and make it very difficult for Sims bc that would mean they were controlling the running game again and were ready for the passes. Can't take any plays off, if a guy is worn down the staff has to try and get him off the field for a couple plays even if it means we might give up a first down or 2
gift cards/gas cards galore, a golf club, osu golf polos, a certificate that if osu makes the championship we are for sure going again like in 2002...
and less injuries
marotti said he is one of the strongest guys he has had in his strength program in a long time as well
the one reason they haven't been able to do it is bc of how smart Jacoby is at center...he calls the protections and you can clearly see he is in control at the LOS...is tough to replace that when you can scheme around his smaller frame and use him to pull and double block alot
yea it really was a "controlled rush" during the wisconsin game...you clearly saw guys recognizing screens when wisky tried to run them and they seems like they were reading from the opponents playbooks...they really "built a wall" as fickell commented they needed too and then the unblocked guy made the stop.
The speed/acceleration of Braxton
add in wiggles with speed and acceleration here...dude can make people miss inside really confined spaces it is ridiculous
Just like Cardale's first TD against Wisconsin, was that really a great pass? It was a good pass, but it was one hell of a play by Devin Smith to go over the defender and catch the ball.
He more or less boxed the defender out...he didn't go over him to catch that first TD...but yea your point is very valid about how many more weapons we have this year....it is a combination of them getting better and the move to JT and Cardale who get the ball out of their hands and don't over hold onto the ball trying to make plays with their legs...the timing seems a little better but who knows Braxton might have worked on that in the offseason and we just never got to see it bc he got injured again.
o cool my question was used this for this community interview...sweet
I swear if Clinton kicks one out in the Sugar Bowl after we gain a bunch of momentum and shift it right back to Bama i am going to go insane...it is unbelievable how many kickoffs he has just straight hooked out of bounds this year...
you forgot the "Jesse Palmer quotes around the whole thing "
It is almost hilarious sitting in the attendance with my dad betting on what stupid thing Amir will do next to look completely foolish...I came away after tonight 60 bucks richer by the end of the game....just a sad excuse of a 6'11" body...
I second that comment shangheyed...It is almost hilarious sitting in the attendance with my dad betting on what stupid thing Amir will do next to look completely foolish...I came away after tonight 60 bucks richer by the end of the game....just a sad excuse of a 6'11" body...
A look at the records of Big Ten teams vs. the top 25 since the start of the 2011-2012 season (reg. season only): pic.twitter.com/lv75nW1nEu— Alex Bozich (@insidethehall) December 21, 2014
Read somewhere that since the '11-'12 season Thad is 13-17 vs top 25 competition...that is not indicative of a top 25 program which osu should be year in year out
or the fact that he interferes with Bob. should've been called goaltender interference to begin with....but no Toronto hates the Jackets...
Amir plays flat footed and 2 steps behind anticipating what the offense is doing
Unless they figure out things in a hurry 10-8 is a stretch. 7-11, 8-10, 9-9 is more like it for this team
Or study how Syracuse's zone works and stop playing flatfooted on the interior (Amir)
working on the premise that whenever I pick I normally get it wrong so hopefully it works out for the bucks cuz I want them to win but trying to keep the mojo going.
I got Rutgers over UNC, Penn St. over BC, Michigan St over Baylor, Wisconsin over Auburn, Illinois over LA Tech, and Iowa over Tennessee...so I see it being 6-4
