I forgot how silly Braxton makes people look in space. Thank you.
These kids are hungry and have way better heads on their shoulders than the kids at FSU. If they don't drink the poisoned kool-aid, why not? That O-Line is a thing of beauty. That running back? Those receivers? Those QBs? Those Silver Bullets? Wow. Just be humble and work hard. All that being said, I agree from above that the losses of Bennett, Devin, Evan, and the rest of the seniors is no joke... there are shoes to fill, but I believe. How can you not believe in this team after that run?
Without question, at least for OSU classes. I don't know about all time across all NCAA, but I'm pretty sure this is the best OSU class I've seen. Bosa already gets a tree in the Grove. Elliot's numbers in the last 3 games are hysterical and Corso already said he's a Heisman frontrunner next year... speaking of, this class already had a top 5 Heisman finalist in Barrett. Lee at 3 stars cracks me up. Jalin, Price, Apple and Bell's production already speaks for itself as well. Insane.
I think we score more on them than Bama. 49-32 Bucks maybe?
Agreeing out here in Colorado!
That didn't dawn on me until this very moment. Hell yeah. Thanks TigerSweat.
Punt returns as well. Jalin is waaaaay too cavalier with the ball on PRs.
This is the first and probably the only time ever I will wish I had the SEC network instead of the Pac12 channel. It would also be here if you have that channel... apparently I'll never know the apex of schadenfreude from those 4 hours.
I don't know many Noles fans but based on recent events, OSU fans > FSU fans isn't saying much. I would hope any fanbase would be a little better than one who slashes players tires and keys their cars after losing 1 of 30.
I was at that game in Austin; it was fantastic. I wasn't in New Orleans but personally I would have to put this one ahead. Everybody has their own reasons for liking one game above another though.
Good point. I believe the fan base and crowd noise will be a little more neutral than Happy Valley, though. That affects several variables; clock management potentially leading to burning timeouts, a pick 6 that JT gave up, keeping the home team in the game emotionally, etc.
Not to derail, but Thomas has amazing potential. This season is just the start. Physically he looks like the closest to an NFL star we've seen in years.
If we can get 281 yards rushing on Bama and 219 on Penn St (the top 2 rushing Ds in the country based on yds/gm), yes, I agree, Zeke should be able to run wild.
Their defensive averages: Passing 260 yd/gm, Rushing 154 yd/gm.
Our offensive averages: Passing 247 yd/gm, Rushing 261 yd/gm.
On the other side of the ball -
Our defensive averages: Passing 188 yd/gm, Rushing 140 yd/gm.
Their offensive averages: Passing 309 yd/gm, Rushing 237 yd/gm.
Dontre is back in the boot
I know that feeling. There is a specific spot in front of my couch with 2 feet imprints on the carpet. I'll be standing exactly in those 2 footprints come next Monday.
This will likely be Braxton's most important week of the season should he be called in to contribute in any way. Suffice it to say he has a lot of experience with zone read and veer offense...
Every time I hear/read "gonna learn today" I think of Kevin Hart. **NSFW**
I'm hesitant to talk smack about the Ducks. I said back in November they were the only team I thought had a chance to beat us. That said, it doesn't take a brilliant football mind to see that their D is physically much smaller than ours (or Bamas). It'll probably feel like a pillow fight for our offense compared to that sledgehammer outing a few nights ago. That doesn't mean they're a poor defense, but it certainly works to our advantage.
“I feel like I may be a little bit underrated”
May? May?? Dude is humble. I love the demeanor of this team.
He said that was his favorite reception of his career.
Classy dude, well spoken senior.
I love the replay with Billy Price knowing Zeke is headed for the house all the way back at the 30 (here). (Side note, he got beat a few times yesterday by the Bama D Line, but that kid is a redshirt freshman are you kidding me?!)
He's a Bama grad...
Rrrrright. With the National Championship on the line, I'd probably be showing up flat and cautious on purpose, because NFL... after all, bowl games are just for the underclassmen and don't mean anything to either side. Apparently there are no seniors on the OSU team (who might have also had the same itis but didn't last night).
