Dude is obscured behind Melvin Gordon, Tevin Coleman, David Cobb, and Ameer Abdullah in the B1G, injured and playing with a cast throughout the season, isn't even benching / doing all strength work, and casually cranks this out while underdogs in all 3 -

  • B1G Championship game rushing record (career high)
  • Sugar Bowl game rushing record (career high)
  • National Championship rushing record (career high)

And still under the radar?  Buh. Effing. Nanas.  If you're an opposing coach and he is not on your radar, you deserve what's coming.

As an aside, if the headlines are all about the QBs, I can only hope Thomas, Jalin, Darron, Bosa, Dontre, etc. all respond like Zeke. If everyone on the team responds in this way and puts the team ahead of their own headlines, that will pay massive dividends.  That kind of focus leads to wins.

Definitely TTUN, Texas and FSU.  I'm pretty sure he's a TTUN fan though so he would only be saying things to spur them on.

On this side of the W/L column, I don't care what he says.  Any compliment would never be completely genuine.  I get faaaar more satisfaction knowing that he was PISSED OFF having to sit through multiple games where a team he adored got knocked the F out by his enemy.

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.

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.

Comment 04 Jan 2015

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.

Comment 03 Jan 2015

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.

Comment 03 Jan 2015

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.

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...

Comment 03 Jan 2015

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.

Comment 03 Jan 2015

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).
