On the PLUS side, the Buckeyes are very accustomed to having a target on their backs...EVERY year.
I wondered that myself. This kid is from up by Cleveland, Lawrence was raised in Columbus, and AFAIK, lives in the Columbus area. Related? Maybe...BUT...
Exactly...how many points would I need to take VA Tech...I'm NOT taking the Hokies.
Indeed...the Fencing team is also competing for the championships this weekend and are in 2nd place at the moment.
Wow...reading some of the above, I'm modestly offering these two accomplishments:
Best accomplishment was finishing 4th in the old Northern Lakes League wrestling tournament. Biggest bragging point was an unassisted tackle of Rick Upchurch in HS FB.
I voted W, creating an 82-82 tie. I see it going the same way in the actual game. Depends on which team shows up, with X-amount of intensity. Something seems to be missing this year, ??? who knows what?
You've watched a lot more basketball in general than I have this season.
You're obviously one heck of a roundball fan... or did you repeat what you heard from one of the talking heads? : )
"...at the level OSU needs him to play" is a bit ambiguous. We all HOPE he exceeds expectations and turns into a stud. He's shown flashes, and, regardless of reason, has disappointed as well. But with a name like Schutt...even non-Buckeyes should be rooting for the kid to be a football stud.
Both 76 & 78 were 12 games, but were the stats updated to count the bowl games? Including the bowl games with regular season stats is relatively new...
Only ONE team tonight has a former Buckeye...and I've been a patriot my whole life...
I can't find it, so I'll ask here...any of the Youngstown crowd remember/know what position Beck played? His bios all seem to omit that little tidbit of info.
MUCH better picture. Save this one...
The wild card in all the speculation is the new OC/QB coach. After 3 years of Tom Herman, Tim Beck and his interaction with these three guys will be interesting, and Beck's preferences, though not the primary component, will impact who & how the position is played.
Though Beck IS an Ohio boy, his interactions with CUFM & OC Warinner will also be interesting to watch.
I went with Bennett, mostly because of the depth we seem to have at WR, and because of the leadership Bennett provides as well as his play. Devin Smith will be missed as well...one of his biggest improvements this year is the way he (normally) goes aggressively after the ball. IMO, that was a shortcoming before this year.
Googled this before the Sugar Bowl, & found an article where the OSU coaches claimed that Robey & Grant ran a 4.31. (As opposed to an article where Amari Cooper SAID he ran a 4.31)
woops, double entry...sorry. (but I think we shut that bastrage DOWN, and thump their butts, 48-34)
Simple...Google Amari Cooper and Doran Grant 40 times...Cooper said he clocked 4.31. OSU coaches clock Grant @ 4.31, during the same session they clocked some guy named Bradley Roby. I think we beat Bama by at least two scores.
Herman's been coaching since 98. Levine (the guy Houston fired) was making over $900 k. Herman is making $550. Add that all up, and throw in his background in TX...it's time.
Official site says 2 for 12 yds ( http://grfx.cstv.com/schools/osu/graphics/pdf/m-footbl/2014/2014-11-29-michigan.pdf )
He started coaching in '98. I think it's time to make that first move, or he may be stuck being an OC forever. I've never seen nor heard of an interview with Herman to see what his goals are. He may not want the headache of being a HC...who knows?
He was born in Ohio, but raised in California, just north of LA. A score of small places to get the taste of what it takes.
