I thought the defense played well again, if you take the QB run away where Powell took a really bad angle.
I made a thread about this last week that was deleted, but they really shouldn't do live chat anymore unless they're able to hold people accountable for what they say. Maybe only let people chat who are signed in so they can ban them if they cross the line.
I agree, something about being ranked #1 the player and coaches play tight and not to lose instead of playing loose and playing to win.
If I forget about last year and just look at this year, Northwestern and Michigan are the 2 best teams in the Bigten.
Playmakers aren't getting the touches because of the 3 and outs. If we could sustain some drives there would be plenty of touches to go around.
That live chat really is a cesspool, I made a thread last week about it and it was deleted, so I'm guessing this one will too.
It's disappointing, I thought the offense would start the season where they left off last year, but that's obviously not happening. I just need to change my expectations. I really think they shouldn't even rank teams until the 5th or 6th week.
I agree, bye the 5th game you know what kind of team you are, and this is the team we are.
That's twice I saw Vick blocking. I never liked him before because of he whole killing dogs thing, but I'm starting to like him.
Steelers all the way, they have 4 buckeyes on their team!
I know Meyer has said in the past he prefers that a corner plays nickel instead of a safety. I think they just had Burrows playing nickel in the past because they didn't have another good option.
If Bell goes to the NFL early I'm sure Cam will be the starter. Powell and Smith both play SS, Bell and Burrows play FS, so Burrows wouldn't be competing with them to be starter.
Excellent job Jonathan! These are my favorite type of articles and you've done a great job explaining their offense.
That was a heck of a catch by ttun.
That was a heck of a catch by ttun.
That's exactly what I was thinking. Like the compliance dept is appealing to the NAAC or something really bad like that.
I'll give Meyer the benefit of the doubt on this call, because he knows a little bit more about football than I do.
Cardale was asked if starting was promised to him shortly after he decided to come back and he said nothing was promised to him.
Also, I don't think Meyer would promise anyone anything, that goes against the spirit of competition he believes in; to just give someone a starting job.
That's the 1st time I've seen the defense win the game for us in years. Once the offense gets rolling again no one is going to beat us.
Seems like a good team that can score some points, the type of team that can upset you if you're not 9 units strong.
They would never admit it, but I think Meyer likes to "practice" on teams we should be able to beat. So we throw it more, when running it would be the easiest route, or sometimes rewarding players who practice hard by getting them the ball.
Yes, we are better and deeper at every position on the offense except maybe TE.
I think Meyer will decide on the QB for real by the time big ten play starts and I would guess Cardale.
Eze won't get 2000k yards; to many play makers so he wont get enough carries.
Dunn will be 2nd true RB with the most carries, but we also have Braxton, Curtis Samuel and perhaps Jalin Marshal running the ball a lot, but not sure if they would be called running backs.
Alabama will walk through the SEC West schedule with horrible teams like Auburn and Arkansas in that division, then all they have to do is beat the SEC East champs (Indiana) and are assured a spot in the playoffs.
I would love to hear him announce the Braxton spin move in Spanish.
