The hell with TTUN! It would give me so much enjoyment to watch a repeat of 2007 App. St. Game. TTUN fans wouldn't feel sorry for us or root for us if we were that bad. NO?! They made sure to make us as miserable as possible in the 1990's when I first was able to start rooting for the Scarlet and Grey and I'm not going to start now. App. St. -45 TTUN- 38.
Yes the play calling became a bit predictable and conservative at times last year. But in Tom Herman's defense there, he was calling into the strength of Braxton which was to run and not pass. We saw the change in play calling when Braxton was injured last year and Kenny Guiton was in the game. Smooth Jazz was able to distribute the ball a little bit better and read defenses better so we saw a little bit a of a more balanced play call. We have now seen 3 years of Braxton. He has developed a little bit better each and every year as a passer but it was still inconsistent at times. I think we will see a little bit different play calling with JT Barrett. I'm sure Herman will call the game to his strengths as well but we will see what happens. I am hopeful.
For sure it's sweat.
I bought my Shazier #50 almost a month and half ago.
As long as we score early and often we increase our chances of winning exponentially. I don't think sparty would do well playing from behind as their style of play isn't built for it. Especially if our pass defense improves drastically. Offensively we need to create some mismatches. Hopefully by the time we play them our offensive line will be in sync and give Braxton the protection that will be required. Braxton must be able to throw the ball downfield and hit some intermediate routes to open up for scrambles so Sparty isn't looking to only stop the run. All in all it will be a tough game and we can certainly win it. I have faith that we will.
Very tough news here. It doesn't matter what many of us think. Whats really important here is what Kyle Berger thinks. It might also be possible that he came back a little too soon. Regardless, anyone who experiences horrific knee injuries can vouch that their knees are never the same. I have also gone through this process and had great medical care with OSU Sports meds team. Even with great care from some of the best in the business, I still have not been the same since that time.
Typically in the past, the buckeyes are blacked out for the regions that are airing on abc for Ohio and half the country. But are shown on espn in the west coast and one of their teams out west games are on abc. So when this happens you could use a vpn for their regions and sometimes be able to stream on watch espn. But it's a lot of work. I suggest using a fta antenna and try to pull up some locals if that is an option.
I believe Joshua Perry is actually stepping into Shazier's old position and Darren Lee is penciled into Perry's spot. Either way I'm excited to see what Darren Lee does as well!
Alabama would be the ideal neutral site game. I don't think anyone would be opposed to playing a LSU, Georgia, or Auburn. Regardless a Neutral site game with a high ranking SEC team sounds ideal.
I agree with everything that you said about UCLA as a team and especially Jim Mora. THey also have decent odds at 14-1. THey are my dark horse team as well. I have them winning the PAC-12.
I think so. Penn state has seemed like a rivalry. It was great to crush them in the manner we did last year! I'm just waiting for when we finally break scums spirits with a thrashing like that one. Wiskey and mich. St. are up there also.
This commitment cannot be understated in its importance!
1. We keep our own
2. Keep em' away from our rivals
3. He bleeds scarlet and gray (this could not have been more obvious and would have bitten us badly later on)
Welcome to the family officially Mr. Conner!
I got so jacked up when I saw the Steelers pick RDS! I was so excited that I finally bought my first Steelers jersey since I was 11 Years old and now being 27! I am so excited to see what Shazier does in a Dick Leabue defense!
This is The Ohio State University! To expect fans of this fantastic institution to have anything less than BIG titles and National titles is rediculous. While I think its important to keep expectations realistic year to year because of the competition out there. There is no reason to think that we could not be competing for titles every single year if not win one on an occasion. The tools and resources are there to accomplish such a goal and having these expectations are exactly what helps put us in the hunt year in and year out. I don't think there is reason to sell ourselves short of what should be ours. And damn to that SEC conference. With that rant said. Go Bucks!
I like what I hear. WHO'S NEXT?! #elite15
Darron Lee reminds me a lot of Russell Wilson. He is well spoken, intelligent, comes from a very good hard working family, and was very much under the radar recruit. If memory serves me well, I think Wilson was a 3 star recruit as well. I think Lee will prove to be very successful like Wilson at his respected position and make Buckeye Nation very proud.
Really good write up 305bucks. I had to double check who wrote this piece bc I thought the staff put it together after reading. I've been following this site for a few years now and finally have just joined. It's great to have a place to come to every day to speak buckeyes.
