Daron Lee and Eze currently would be a fun to watch. I'm sure they enjoy the competition.
This whole process is started with the medical doctors decision/prognosis. Meyer is only gonna follow their advice. If Meyer goes against doctor advice and plays the kid, he and OSU are taking a risk. Lawyers and ESPN would have a field day if he played and got seriously injured. What if he had had concussions in the past. Some doctors may clear him, some may not. Its not black and white in medicine...that's why lawyers have a field day in medical malpractice.
To say Meyer did something "shady" would mean he called the doctors and told them what to say...No way is that happening.
He was offered a medical scholarship.
No matter what Ohio State doctors do they risk being wrong. Let's say they clear him and he sustains another injury then everyone points to OSU and claims they don't care about their players...only winning.
Let's be honest, there is no guarantee so doctors make the best choice they can. Ahem...look at Braxton last year. All good then "oh shit". Was his doctor wrong? All his doctors made the best decision based on the info they had. Sometime things happen but in today's legal world, you better error on the side of caution.
That tweet was funny. I almost spit out my drink onto my pc.
When does Weber make his announcement?
Good thoughts. Along those lines, my biggest concern for next year is the mental part of the game. I'm not sure how to word it but worried they may get complacent, or just not be as motivated.... I acknowledge that Meyer is excellent at the psychology of the team but still, always feel better if the players have a little chip on their shoulder.
I guess I shouldn't worry, ESPN will provide plenty of reasons why the Big Ten and tOSU are bad that will help keep the players ready to prove them wrong.
Interesting article. I could certainly see how Auburn and LSU could tempt him to head to the SEC and get on the field sooner. But on the other hand, yah never know what's going to happen at tOSU. Cardale could leave in a year...Braxton may not recover or at the least be gone after next season. JT, could leave early.
In today's world, its not unreasonable that Collier or Burrow could be starting in 2016 as the others are gone.
Interesting thing is you never know what will happen with quarterbacks. Will Cardale go pro? Can Braxton recover from his shoulder surgery? You could see all three in fall battling for playing time or only JT could be there with Collier as 2nd string and the freshman battling for 3rd and pushing Collier. So many variables.
Congrats to the Big Ten for its showing in the bowl games this year
I think Harris ends up at UK. Home town guy, chance to be part of something new at UK, SEC...but what are the odds Stoops stays? If he finishes the year strong at UK, would other bigger schools come looking at Stoops?
I really hope that photo of AJ is photo shopped....poor guy looks out of shape and that tattoo? umm...not sure what to say.
Not to be negative but just curious. Can any of you name a time when Herman made good changes during a game to alter his game plan and end victorious? Do you think he's good, average etc at half time adjustments?
I'd love to see Herman get some solid questions on his play calling. Maybe bring him on the show.
Almost spit out my drink when I read that....lol
Thanks for the table.
Any chance you add a table of those that still have their Black stripe?
Great article. Thanks
Good thoughts Citrus...I'm excited to see the season get going.
With the loss of Brax and all the dooms day people... I think Urbs will have an angry team with a chip on their shoulder...
While Braxton is a great QB, he is not perfect. Isn't the concern that his mid range throws need work? Aren't the pro scouts still waiting to him truly shine as a passing QB?
With all the talent at receiver, TE, and running back, why shouldn't tOSU be excited for this season? JT was a highly recruited dual threat QB. Who knows, they could play even better with JT? Maybe with some experience and confidence he becomes a better passer than Braxton? I still think the odds are better that we end up with a more well rounded offensive attack this year vs the Braxton/Hyde show of last year.
My point is, Why the hell are all these Ohio State fans throwing in the towel? I hope the players still believe they can win the Big10 and make a run at a national championship.
Is there a running list of who has lost the black stripe and who hasn't?
How confident are you in Gardner ?
Just curious, who really is Arkansas' rival?
