Sounds like we are only 5% away from the QB competition of the decade.
We could run the ball 90% of the time and that still wouldn't be enough if we had Zeke running behind our O-Line with Pace. That just wouldn't be fair.
Anyone have insight to where Crowell sits on Ohio State's board at WR? Wondering if he would be a take if he wanted in with NCM, Victor, Corley (however unlikely) and Mitchell still in play.
This is some interesting news, I wonder how Ohio State is going to deal with it...
Even watching the muted version of this was intense! Can't wait to watch it again after work.
This is the most excited I've been for a Buckeye NBA draftee in recent memory. Russell single handedly took us to the 2nd Round of NBA tournament and at times it just felt wrong how little help he had. I am anxiously awaiting what he can do with other talent finally around him, considering he is a magician with the ball in his hands.
Bold statement about someone who set the Big Ten record for TD's in a season without playing the last 3 1/2 games.
That talent combination at WR is so outrageous that I refuse to even think about the possibility of getting all four.
The Gary Plan: Make sure Gary has a good visit today, get him back on campus for FNL, get an official visit from him for a big-time game, hope for the best on NSD.
This sucks. He'd been mentioned as some interior depth since late last year especially since he didn't redshirt. I'm sure more details will emerge, but I am curious to know what mutual means in this case.
Honestly I thought this wasn't played well at all from a scheme perspective (agree with the pass interference point of view). Bama managed to squeeze 2 WR's in between an OLB and Safety, if that ball is thrown 1-2 feet shorter we are headed to overtime.
As long as we land one of NCM, Corley, Crowell, or Victor I have no problem passing on Mitchell. The staff must feel confident they will since I doubt they'd turn down a talent of Mitchell if they were skeptical on the others.
"Ohio State is turning into home for me." -- DPJ. Got to love the sound of that.
Not sure it was even the best offensive performance last season. We had more yards and only 3 fewer offensive points vs. Michigan State, at their place, who boast a much better defensive than Wisconsin.
Going 3-0 in New Years Day Bowls the past 4 years is a good place to start, including a Rose Bowl victory.
If we get Victor on campus twice I like our odds if we have room for him, no matter if he is committed to Florida. I could be under the wrong impression but getting 3 visits from someone, let alone someone willing to travel from Florida, has to put us in the drivers seat or at least serious consideration come NSD.
Last year UFM had one the best head coaching performances I have ever seen, but from a unit perspective I doubt Warinner's work get topped in my lifetime. We went from not being able to move the ball at home vs. a 6-6 VT team to topping 200 yards vs. a Nick Saban coached Alabama team known for their run stopping defense. If that wasn't enough, Oregon knew we were going to run the ball and essentially ran the exact same trap play all game and still couldn't stop us. I know this point has been harped on before, but it's still worth mentioning how amazing that transformation was.
Warinner was a magician last year, and I hope we compensate him enough years to come to keep that magic here.
Went 3 being cautiously optimistic. If he coaches another 8-10 years I think it's definitely possible with the way recruiting is going, anything under that though I'd reduce it to 2.
My untrained eye thought People-Jones was the best WR in that video and he's only in the 2017 class, wow. That said, it's easy to see why the staff is so high on Mack.
If you prefer drinking outdoors with the assumed nice weather I'd recommend these campus bars heading North to South: Out-R-Inn, Chumley's The O-Patio, Midway, Big Bar Rooftop, Ugly Tuna in Gateway, Lucky's. All of them bring something different to the table.
If you don't care about outdoor/indoor I would add Too's, Ethyl & Tank, and the Beer Stube are some cool bars as well.
As a proud soon-to-be 5th year student most of this chart is already instilled in my head, not sure if that's good or bad though...
Hall, Mack, and Cooper are criminally underrated, especially the latter two. What else does Cooper have to do to be at least in the top 100 after dominating every camp? Also, i'll prefer the staffs judgment saying Mack is the best receiver in the class over Rivals's 208 overall ranking.
With all that negativity this class could still easily be top 3, possibly even #1.
