I was born and raised in Cleveland, TN but my dad and his family are from Toledo, OH. We are Buckeye fans in my family, but I married a UT Vol girl... It's okay though because she is a wonderful woman and smokin' hot. I love to get on here and talk about Buckeye football. I'm an elementary school PE teacher, so each day I'm molding the youth of America.

I'm honestly starting to believe this kid wants to commit to OSU in person.  He has talked about wanting to commit for some time now and he has also said he doesn't want to commit to any school without a return visit to OSU.  He has been to PSU multiple times during their hot streak and has left without committing.  I think he ends up being a Buckeye.

I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you.  The speed hasn't been used to spread the defense out at this point.  Dontre was used as a decoy last year and Hall was supposed to be our hybrid.  There weren't many jets sweeps or much of anything to get us on the edges.  

Comment 15 Apr 2014

I don't think anyone wants to go away from the ground and pound.  I think a lot of us would like to start seeing the speed on the edges mixed into the playcalling tho.  We need have Zeke, Dontre, Marshall, and Samuel who can all fly.  

Comment 15 Apr 2014

Couldn't agree more Cinserious.  Herman needs to open the playbook this year and use all of the plays and all of his weapons.  

Comment 15 Apr 2014

We've got plenty of speed at all positions.  It's easy for Braxton to keep it and to hand it off, but he struggles with throwing the ball.  Hopefully we will see a heavy dose of short quick passes early in the season to build his confidence and help with the passing game.  As the season progresses, we should see him getting more opportunities to go through progressions.  

Comment 15 Apr 2014

Cardale might have won the whole spring, but when the pressure was on during the Spring Game JT looked a lot more impressive to me.  I know it's not even close to a good comparison, but I'm a middle school hoops coach and last season we had a player who was an awful practice player.  When the lights came on and it was game day, he usually led the team.  JT looked much better than Cardale IMO. 

Comment 14 Apr 2014

I might be in the minority, but I'm still not sold on Cardale.  If he can't get his accuracy right, that turns us into a complete running team once Braxton is gone.  Maybe I'm looking at things the wrong way, but I want a more balanced offense in the future.  We have relied too much on the run since Urban got to Columbus.  I know our skill players haven't been spectacular, but it starts with the QB making reads and progressions.  

Comment 14 Apr 2014

I thought the same thing.  I don't see him coming in and taking time away from Vannett at all.  If Baugh continues to straighten things out, he wouldn't take time from him either.  I'm personally hoping the Ohio kid tears it up when he camps and gets his offer.  

Comment 14 Apr 2014

I agree with you.  He'll continue to improve and I think he will be the starter next year after Braxton leaves.  He reminded me a little of Kenny G the way he ran the read option.  He rode the ball a long way until he made the decision to keep or give.  I think JT Barrett will start for 3 years while Collier and the 2015 QB are being groomed.  

Comment 13 Apr 2014

Today is my birthday and that was a great way to end it. I've hated Joffrey since the show started. 

Comment 13 Apr 2014

I'm really hoping Wimbush enjoys his time on campus and puts us back on top. 

11W staff... Are the coaches allowed to have multiple recruits in their office at one time? Would be nice for Urban to pull Wimbush, Clark, and Jefferson in his office and talk about them being the future of OSU Football. 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

The best way to impress a TE recruit is to throw our current TEs the ball. 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

I wasn't extremely impressed with either guy, but they're both pretty even. With that said, if two players are even I'm giving the reps to the younger guy. I think when the 2015-2016 season rolls around JT Barrett will be the starting QB. 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

Clark just tweeted that his recruitment is "wide open."  I can't embed the tweet from my phone. Let's just say that commitment didn't last long. 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

I thought JT Barrett looked better than Jones. I was also very impressed with Dunn. Defense looked much improved but they were playing an average offense. 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

I'm looking at BTN2GO and if I'm correct you can't watch it without accessing your cable provider through the website.  So... If your basic cable package at home doesn't have BTN, then you can't watch it at all.  

 

Any other ideas out there?

Comment 12 Apr 2014

So apparently you can't stream the game for free on BTN2go.  You have to access it through your cable provider on the website. 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

I'd really like to see 80% passing and 20% running (sorry Zeke).  I want to see our secondary play really well and understand placements and schemes.
