He's visiting us and then heading down South to Alabama and Auburn. Probably no commitment will happen, but you never know.
Don't now if Natareace Strong will visit. Committed to Mizzou today as expected.
Not putting all the blame on Braxton, but his issues with reading defenses and passing is a little bit of it. Our defense, specifically our secondary, is attrocious and you're right on the points you make.
Like I said, I just don't want another type of guy like this who is going to take a couple years to develop and still not hit the ceiling he can have.
20 plus game win streak against scrub opponents. Admit it, everyone in America knows it, soft schedule.
I'm not hating on Braxton because I happen to like him. He's explosive, dynamic, and fun to watch. But if we have a QB that is more polished, we win that game against MSU. The last two games against TTUN and there big brother, he went 14-36 with a combined 234 pass yards (two of his lowest all year), while he had 37 rush attempts for 295 yards. He's a much better QB than two years ago, he actually takes most of his looks before running. But he is still more of a run first QB.
Also to add to this, Lance McCallister is a biased, homer idiot. I can't stand to read or listen to anything he says. And Yes I live in Cincinnati.
UC always wants to play in Cincinnati. Why play UC in football at UC or Paul Brown? UC's stadium holds at most 40,000 people. Paul Brown holds what, around 60-70k? It's a smart move to play UC at The Shoe because OSU gets more money out of it. It also gives more people the chance to see this spectacular game, which I hope OSU wins by 40 after the whole bUCkeye state thing.
Onto the subject of landing kids. I think we have a problem with landing the big kids from the GCL. Kyle Rudolph is one big name that comes to mind. I know we did get Hubbard and we are in the running for HIlliard, but we also whiffed on Posey. These are Ohio kids, they should be getting the full court press every time they visit.
Lol at UC's football team being in a down year in 2006, they've never had an "up" year until the Sugar Bowl appearance. Lance is an idiot.
Not trying to be a buzzkill with this comment, but I don't understand why everyone wants another Braxton Miller type guy. Nothing bad against Braxton because I think he is a good QB. What I mean by this is we dont need another QB, as someone said before, who won't be able to get our receivers the ball. Braxton still hasn't even been developed fully and still has trouble reading defenses and hitting a guy who isn't clear as day open.
TG is a good quarterback and fast as hell, but definitely not a five star talent at QB. We don't need another "project" at QB to work on. He would definitely be the best WR in this class if he switched.
Maybe they see JT or Cardale having a couple years of starting and giving Gibson the coaching he needs. But if you're a five star prospect, you should definitely come in and compete for a job, which I don't think he could do.
Honestly I Hope Urban can hopefully stay in Gibson's ear long enough about playing QB and keep on Wimbush, Murray, or Francois (who I heard killed it and threw rockets at the elite 11) about actually being the #1 guy. Gibson signs and you switch him to WR. It's a dirty move, but I think it's how he should play it. You get a top notch, polished QB and then you pretty much land the best WR in the class too.
This is a gray box moment....
Best of luck to you Alex. Might have to get the Bucknuts subscription now.
its either #HottyToddy (wtf is that anyway) or #BBN, #Airraid (Kentucky) for me. Can't stand programs who have been irrelevant coming out of the woodwork.
Surprised they didnt show hoke deep throating a hot dog.
About time were sparking something up. Looked sluggish coming out.
God... Seeing the fans of that team up North all butthurt over this and going crazy on mgoblog... just makes this sunday even better.
Oh... and reading this mgoblog just made me realize how stupid some michigan fans can really be. Did find some rational ones though.
this got me though
If he wants to try to tackle Derrick Green when he continuously breaks through to the buckeyes secondary, let him.
I guess they don't know we have actually recruited a Dline unlike them.
Ding ding, good job lol. Exactly what I mean, guess some people just want to be smartasses about things.
Anyone else unimpressed with QB play in this game. Swoopes doesn't look good, Johnson is okay, and Browne, well he just threw into double coverage and almost an INT.
Seems like we always lose out to the elite kids that want to stay home and play. Diggs, Quick... Two great playmakers.
Mitchell will hopefully make up for it... Maybe even Dontre Wilson down the line.
Tminus 2 minutes. LETS GO QUICK!
Oh man... Jaylon Smith has a bloody nose. Five minutes of coverage for the Notre Dame commit.
Kid is a special type of player coming out of Indiana. Sucks we didn't get him even with Rod on the team. Sucks.
Please NBC, let me hear more about Notre Dame. I heard Greg Bryant and Jaylon Smith wioll be playing with them.
No Knowledge University (NKU). Used to be really easy to get into the college and in my time at the school I feel I learned nothing. It was so easy.
I just graduated from Northern last December. It was a nice little University and is on the up and up when it comes to size. More of a commuter college but now that they went D1 and are exapnding the campus significantly. The basketball teams has what it takes to be making it to March Madness down the line.
As said by Btalbert, it probably wont be a close game, but NKU is pesky. Beat WVU last year in a pre season game, hung with Louisville 2 years or so ago, and has hung with UC the past two years.
