Kid is an animal. It was good to see him celebrating at Toos last night..haha
We should lend whoever doesn't win the starting QB job to a couple teams in order to make at least two games competitive..
SO excited for this game against Bama. No one outside of Ohio is giving us a chance, and that's exactly the way this team likes it..
You just get the feeling that this team is so tight-knit and gritty that there aren't going to allow each other to lose.. In spite of the circumstance, I'm strangely confident that we're going to win this ball game.
Burrow, yes. But I wouldn't be so sure that we don't see Gibson playing some wide out.. I know we've promised him a shot at QB, but how can you keep his athleticism off the field?? A nice dilemma to have, for sure.
Style of play reminds me of Craig Krenzel. Athletic, but not overly so, yet still makes people miss. Looks fairly accurate as well. Definitely serviceable.
Alex Smith had a huge year in '04.. Can't forget Tebow, of course. I'd be pleased if JT comes anywhere close to those guys.
If we play mistake free football, I don't see us getting handled by anyone. We played one of our worst games yesterday and that mixed with a solid team was a recipe for disaster. Yeah, we lost. But all of those teams listed above have lost, too. Yeah, our pass defense is AWFUL. But the defenses listed there, save for Bama, are no where near what we saw in MSU. Also, there's an outside chance that Christian Bryant will be back for a bowl game, which would be huge for our defense.
Yes, this loss was demoralizing.. but don't forget that we still have one of the best head coaches in college football history and that we have a resilient group of young men.
This is something that I always brought up when people claimed he was a liar when he accepted the job at OSU. I'd always ask, "Do you personally know Urban Meyer? Do you have access to medical records to be able to say he was faking his heart issues? Are you a family member of his to be able to tell us if he really is fully committed to his family? If not, you're just making outlandish claims that have no real bearing on anything."
It's the same thing with anyone else in the public eye. So many people pass judgment without actually knowing who they are judging, and it's not right. But it's the world we live in.
JMO. Nice post, OP.
Went with the over.. MSU hasn't played a top 50 offense yet, let alone one with our offensive line, Brax, Carlos, etc. I think we'll score some points and I think we'll give up some points. (Hope I'm wrong, but the lack of defensive improvement over the past two years is concerning, IMO)
Akron all the way.
