We're blocking out M's and Jimmy is busting a nut on the grave of Bo. Yep. It's *ichigan week!!
Highlights from last years game. The team looks fired up hitting on all cylinders.
Let's just hope as un-Urban like as last Saturday's game that we never see a 100 some yard offense for an entire game ever again. I say this even if we've got a damn duck sitting in the booth on headset so long as Meyer is our coach.
Just what exactly is Beck relaying to the field when he's in the press box?? I'm curious because obviously Beck has the birds eye view and can see how the defense is attacking us and find the solution by suggesting a play to Meyer and staff. It seems that the play calling overall this year has been less innovative, probably as a loss due to the departure of Herman. I know between Herman and Beck, both those guys could very well see things differently while analyzing a defense on the go, but then they could also see things very much alike. That will never know because neither Beck or Herman rarely speak to the media.
Windy they said
Load em' up, It's 12 gauge time!!
How I feel about the potential to play another SEC team in the playoffs this year
One thing I notice that is in contrast between JT and 12 gauge is the speed at which the offense is ran. It seems like JT runs the offense at a much faster pace and makes adjustments and audibles quicker than CJ. I hope to see Jones running the offense at a faster pace as Urban seems to prefer a faster pace as well.
Cardale's strengths are scoring from 20-50 yds out from the end zone with big plays like we saw last weekend. As soon as he's in the red zone with the offense, it gets hairy.
Let's face it. 12 gauge likes to score from far out....Anywhere from the 20 yd line and back. Anything in the redzone and he usually struggles. JT brings that element of the draw that is a weakness to 12 gauge. I think Urban is onto something here.......
On paper, we looked like a pretty darn good team. Cardale went for 21 - 28 for 291 yds and 2 TDs.....pretty good for a QB gettting called out a lot lately. Zeke did what he does best and broke another 100 yds. NO TURNOVERS!! We did have 6 penalties for 45 yds but nothing like we've been seeing the last few weeks. A score of 49 - 28 and if you hadn't seen the game, one would probably say that was a pretty darn good game.
Shhhhh......Urban is just trying to put more in the mind of Keith Dudzinski so he has to think more this weekend.
For the Buckeye fans who just need to chill out and be thankful we're 5-0
This play just makes me wanna cry a little, its so beautiful!!
I'm curious to see what Urban does with play calling now. If Warinner stays on the field, I have no problem with Beck calling plays from up in the booth. There's a reason Urban hired Beck to begin with. If Warinner goes upstairs and Beck comes downstairs then I just hope the O line does okay with Warinners absence on the field since that's where he's been since Urban took over.
While the choosing of a QB is one thing, coaching and play calling is another. Interesting that there hasn't been much mentioned in regards to the new guy Tim Beck and how he and Ed Warinner are working together during the game. I know Tim is upstairs where Herman once sat and Ed is still down on the field, but what is the process for how the play calling is handled? It definitely seems different from the Herman days.
12 men on the field, that's illegal!!
