Nashville (via Cleveland, TN)

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.

My question is... Are we that weak behind Prince?  Have we not developed someone else good enough to put in the game over him?  O-line is my biggest concern because we need to be able to run and pass block moving forward.  A lot of these guys were very highly rated coming out of high school.  I know they're young, but they should be ready to go.

I haven't seen any really early draft projections, but I can't see JT leaving early. He's not your typical NFL size and he lacks NFL arm strength. He's a great college QB tho. I'd like to see him stay 1 more year with these young guys then take a shot at pro ball. He needs to come back as an OSU assistant when his tenure in the pros is over. I think he would make a great college coach.

I live 25 minutes from Nashville.  Everyone is blasting Taylor Lewan.  I tweeted the Titans about 3 weeks ago asking them never to draft a player from TSUN again.

Comment 21 Sep 2016

I agree with all of your points.  I'd definitely like these guys to hang around for another year.  If most of the players with eligibility left stay... We will be absolutely ridiculous next year.  With that said, if I'm a projected 1st rounder... I'm gone.

GIF keyboard is a great app as well.  I don't know if it has the Urban GIF on it, but very good for keeping the conversation interesting.

I can't see a reason why JT would leave after this year.  He doesn't have the NFL body and his arm strength isn't that great.  Those 2 components are the reason Cardale is going to get drafted.  I see JT staying 2 more years.  After that, I see Joe Burrow getting the job.  Kid is an absolute stud and has the pedigree with his dad being in the coaching ranks.  The question on Burrow will be, can he run the read option?  I know Urban has said he wants to move more towards a pro-style system, but the read option is where we see so much success.  I think the read option will be the difference in who starts between Burrow and Haskins.  With the roster being loaded, I do see about 60% of incoming freshman redshirting over the next few years.

Kyler Murray should've went through the MLB draft after high school and took that $3-5 million signing bonus.

Then we shouldn't allow cut blocking anymore.  The rules don't make sense.  You can't tackle at the knees, but you can block at the knees.  It'll be flag football at some point in my lifetime.  Also, you take these risks when you sign up to make millions of dollars.  I'd risk an ACL for $5 million a year.  Just make sure you insurance policy is paid up and don't mismanage the money you do make.

Cardale should've left after last season when his stock was high.

Bosa and Zeke need to go.

Bell, Powell, Apple, and Lee all need to talk to people before the combine.  If they're projected in the 1st or 2nd round then go ahead and go. 

The good thing about all of those guys is we have great, young talent behind them.

Next year's 2-deep isn't negative talk.  It's fun to look at who's coming back and who could be stepping up.  I agree with the other nonsense tho.  

Comment 14 Jan 2015

If anyone should've been left out, it should've been FSU.
