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 agree. No doubt that all defensive coaches will be apart of putting the game plan together, but the scheme and coverages are all Ash.
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.
Is there any doubt that this defense is now Ash's defense with Fickell basically being a LB coach?
I'll be in the market for 4 tickets for the Va Tech game. Preferably upper bowl in between the 20s.
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.
Couldn't agree more Cinserious. Herman needs to open the playbook this year and use all of the plays and all of his weapons.
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.
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.
I thought the exact same thing.
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.
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.
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.
He could apply for a hardship from the NCAA because of a sick family member.
Today is my birthday and that was a great way to end it. I've hated Joffrey since the show started.
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.
The best way to impress a TE recruit is to throw our current TEs the ball.
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.
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.
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.
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?
So apparently you can't stream the game for free on BTN2go. You have to access it through your cable provider on the website.
There is a big difference between brady joke and James Franklin. I don't see him or his recruiting class sinking.
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.
