I feel like I'm the only one here that wants no part of Strong. His relationship with Meyer is strained.. he slept with one of Louisville's top booster's wife while coaching there, he is banned from recruiting Colerain HS as long as Bolden is the coach there, and I have never liked his schemes. I'm 100% anti Charlie Strong.
Strong tried to poach Herman from Meyer's staff.
Johnson and Schiano - Co-Coordinators.. Coombs is likely gone if not official.. We need a high energy guy like him who can recruit like him to replace him.
You run the delayed RB screen when you expect a fire blitz or zone blitz where you don't expect anyone to drop into that particular zone. Michigan ran mostly man and a LB would've stayed on the RB reading the blitz and shutting it down. We need short rub routes designed to beat man coverage, or need to execute them if we run them. I also like being able to throw an outside screen to someone like Samuel, Hill, or Brown who can either make the first tackler miss or break the tackle. Success with that play can either catch the safety out of position for a deep pass or can stop an outside linebacker from aggressively defending the run game.
I disagree.. the sh*tty pac-12 has made them look a lot better than they are. Wisconsin's D is legit.
Somewhat disagree, They all gained weight and Ginn got hurt. Play calling wasn't the best.. we come into the game hungry a instead of well fed and work to establish the run we would've had a game. We could've ran on them but decided to try the drop back passing game with OTs and a QB who all put on bad weight vs a lethal pair of DEs
Tackling Deveon Smith.. I saw some pathetic tackling vs LJ Scott
Hooker can't let Butt get open
But it worked more often than not, not like I like JT running but sometimes it's not always that JT is called on to run it but the defense is keying in on Weber or Samuel and it's just the right read. There was one third and short though that it was so obvious we were going to run QB power and JT got like 12 yards.. I asked myself how dumb could MSUs defense be not to sell out against it.
Why weren't you Ohio State? And how many yards does Curtis get on Saturday?
The coaches can scout during that extra week.. but they would still have plenty of time after the Big Ten Championship. That also means the players lose a week of practice and watching film.. they won't be allowed to be coached that week and that hurts when you're a young team. Lastly extra rest and time to scout just allowed our players to get fat and lose focus in 2006/7 and look what happened. Also I really want a B1G championship.. which technically we have only won once this decade.
Or it can give the one of youngest teams in America an extra week of practice and an important B1G championship. If we make it and lose we don't belong.
5 weeks of rest is not really that much better than 4, but one extra week of practice is huge when you've got one of the youngest teams in America. How did all that extra rest help is in the Championship vs the Gators.. not so much.
Because winning the B1G is important, because having an extra week of practice will help during the playoff(we're still an extremely young team), and backing in just isn't my thing.
And one less week of practice that could be extremely beneficial
Should be giving him the ball more. I think overall Marcus Baugh is blocking much better late in this season and it can really make a difference in the inside run game with Weber
I like Dontre as a receiver but I'm excited to see KJ Hill play. I'd say McCall too but I don't think he's playing WR at all, just RB, but I think he has to replace Samuel at H
It's about that time when my back started bleeding.
I love a strong run game with a strong PA fake and hit it over to the top to a speedster
Houston would be #2 next Tuesday if they had beaten SMU and Navy.
Can we get Ed Oliver to Columbus? Jesus! dude is a freak
20 - 6 Buckeyes. Struggle w/ weather but defense takes care of it.
Eli Apple and Gareon Conley weren't that good during some of their first performances either.
