T-Gib has said he wants to learn for a year before taking over the reigns. I think that say's a lot about the kid.
What ya'll think your crazy?? T-Gib is gonna land in the house and say, "move over boys, my time to shine." I could only imagine Brax and JT looking at eachother like Da faq?? Okay okay....not really gonna happen but if it did that would sure be quite a scenario lol.
I love the shovel plays....its one of my favorites that I was waiting for Urban to show. Another one of my favs (and one I think we'll see soon) is the 5 wide look where a slot receiver motions around from one end to the other setting up a speed option out of the 5 wide look. Meyer used that with Tebow and Percy on goal line situations with success. Tried to find a video but no luck.
It was very obvious JT was really scanning the field yesterday. At least on TV you could see his head moving a lot trying to find the open guy. My early prognosis is that JT is gonna be the QB who finds the open man....no matter who it is.
There was one play where Samuel hit the hole and literally put the afterburners on. The kid has explosiveness that I think a lot of us underestimated. It's gonna be fun watching him develop through the season.
Move Curtis to end in place of Spence and slide Kwon into MLB
Cannot blame JT.....he's spot on with his accuracy
And Kerry Combs goes wild
Herman loves calling that pitch option
There is nowhere and I repeat....NOWHERE to find a better burger than at The Thurman Cafe.
Interesting article I just read that was spot on with what happened Saturday night. Quite honestly, I don't think Meyer knew what the heck he was getting into with Bud Foster and his defensive shenanigans. Foster seems like a pretty darn good DC.
We got prime time games against Penn St. and Mich St. Now just think how Urban must be licking his chops ready for a big win on the road in a hostile atmosphere. And this here Buckeye fan cannot wait!!
No one knows the struggle of ink splatter until you've written with a feather
Press islands and a sick nasty D line
Could it maybe...could it just maybe be the fact Grant is a senior and Kwon is a frosh is the reason Kwon isn't getting played more?? #CmonplayussomeKwon
From that statement, it sounds like Eli wasn't where he needed to be and recognized the situation he was in as CB with the 3rd and long scenario. Ash makes it sound like he did his job as a DC, its just that Eli simply didn't recognize what needed to be executed on his part. It's still early to see how this defense is panning out under new leadership from Ash, but so far I think Urban made a good hire in Chris Ash.
If its any indication...I believe Ash is in the box and Luke is on the field. So I'm thinking it works much the same way as Herman and Meyer. Herman makes the call while Meyer can interject. Ash makes the call while Luke could interject.
I'll get flak for this I'm sure but like any Buckeye fan, I wished we would have won last Saturday night. However, the coaches and players can take a lot from this game and learn. I'd rather have a team like VT play us well schematically and in general to as Meyer said, "exposed a little" so that this young team can really adjust going forward. My wish is Wilson and Marshal get the ball more and Meyer and Herman find creative ways to get those 2 involved.
If Herman was awful...then I'd find it hard to believe that Urban would keep him around. We've already had 2 major coaching changes with LJ and CA on the defensive side of the ball. Give TH a chance this year and see what how he does and responds to the VT game from this past weekend.
For one....it is unfair to a RS Fr. QB to be expected to know and execute the entire playbook. I think Tom Herman is a pretty good OC and knows what he is doing. However, given that the game plan has stayed mostly consistent the last 2 yrs with Brax at the helm....it has changed how TH has to prepare and coach for games. At this point, we know JT can run the football, he's by no means explosive like Brax is but he can run and get the first down. Its time now to get the ball into Dontre Wilson's hands (and in space) and develop the RBs with consistency and utilize the receivers more since we know JT can't bail us out with his legs as easily as Brax always has.
Sort of like an orgasm
