Better live up to those shirts, time to pitch a shutout
Just because they haven't done it yet doesn't mean it's not a threat and Jalin does have a good arm. I'm not saying we should run a ton of it but it does give teams more to prepare for and does give you an extra blocker vs handing it off.
Jalin was a QB in HS and definitely is a threat to throw the ball.
What do you mean inside? I think if he played linebacker he'd play the spot that Perry is playing and he's definitely not going to play defensive tackle.
I just don't know if I agree with this. MSU might not be as good as last year but we still don't have that oline carlos and Braxton. Now it looks like we're improving in all aspects but we've played terrible competition so far. UC got blasted by Memphis and a terrible Miami FL team. VT hasn't looked good by any means. Kent sucks, Navy isn't great, and Maryland is mediocre at best. We play some good QBs but not good teams. MSU will be the first complete team we play after playing a bunch of scrimmages. The MSU game will show us where we truly stand and a win would be a tremendous sign for us. I definitely don't think we're going to walk into EL and have a walk in the park. We'll get hit in the mouth for the first time since the VT game, hopefully we come ready to hit back.
He's a junior, it was an error
If we had spence and Marcus this really would be the sickest D- line in the country. Bosa and Bennett are beast and Washington and Schutt are getting close. We just need that speed guy. I wish Jalyn was a little more muscularly developed.
To the posters that were bashing Cincinnati, I have double birds for you.
My blood boils when the cardinals win or I see a cardinals fan
While almost everyone is predicting a 38-27 type win for the Buckeyes I just hope that is the worst case scenario. The way this offense has been improving I can't see us scoring under 40. If our DBs can fix a few mistakes I'm seeing 49 - 17 if they don't I'm seeing 42 - 31. Either way I'll be happy with a W.
Urban said these penalties are as much the fault of JT as the OL. JT and the OLine will get that fixed.
I don't know if they do, but those two catching the ball could help take us to an elite level. They have the ability to stretch the field, which makes swing passes and WR screens harder to defend. If those two step up their is no area of the field we cannot attack. This offense could turn into a beast with some more consistency of the WR, both blocking and catching. Too many weapons to defend and too good of a decision maker at QB. The only things that stopped us from scoring every possession were drops and fumbles.
Wow now I'll sleep easier
This offensive line has improved dramatically over the past few weeks allowing us to see that JT and Eze are studs. I just hope Devin Smith and Corey Smith can learn to become catchsmiths instead of dropsmiths because they don't lack the athleticism. If this offense keeps improving the way it has, and considering our depth, this offense could potentially be the best in the country right up with A&M and Oregon. And if the back 7 improves on d, look out.
Was it that loud? I was there for both the VT and UC games and I though VT game was louder but that's not what I've read from other people.
Pretty sure all Tuberville's in laws live in the Cincinnati area and that's part of the reason he came to UC
As far as game day experience, being on campus, going to the shoe, and after the game I don't think there could be a better time to start the game, and the weather was unbeatable. I think as it gets darker earlier I won't like the later games as much. Weather and the sky from the south stands has been more than picturesque.
I love Borens but I think Jacoby is not one of the top 5 most gifted lineman on this team. I think he must be a good communicator because he is tiny for an OSU center. I think we have a lot of talent and depth on the OLine in actuality it's just a matter of time before they gel and get some swagger to their game. Hopefully it starts tonight with 250 yards on the ground and a clean QB
Good thing I read the commenting policy before I went on that rant
Michael Thomas 151 yards
which one isn't your son dammit?
i was hoping this is what you meant
I hope you're kidding
I hope we have a blitz package called 71 Scarlet Inferno.
Bring the heat
