Thomas had 5 drops all of last season. Your thesis is factually untrue. Thomas is not a burner and ran slower 40's. That said, Jerry Rice the GOAT was slow coming out of college as well. The most over rated aspect of a wide out is his 40 time.
What a clueless take.
Jalin was told by pretty much everyone advising him to stay in school. He was told that if he were lucky he would get drafted at the tail end of the draft and that it was likely he would go as an UDFA.
Jalin makes next to nothing if he fails to make the Jets roster which is the likely outcome as it is for MOST UDFA. Jalin had not one but TWO years of Eligibility left in which to improve his NFL stock. To suggest that he couldnt have greatly improved his stock is ludicrous. This decision is the difference from 0 guaranteed money to millions...
From a purely business perspective it was without question a very poor decision
It was a lot more than that. When he was starting the one T spot was a turnstyle. In addition to that, the WR as a group were nowhere near what they were the year before. No reliable deep threat killed the vertical game. Since the offense wasn't moving that put more and more pressure on Jones. JTB got health and was a little more effective moving the offense... that is until MSU.
Oh, is that what we are calling the truth now?
How dellusional does this kid have to be to think even for a nanosecond that he and NBA (at this point) belong in the same sentence?????
Nope... if you have a legit shot at Wilson (and OSU does have a legit shot at him) you take him over Mullins all week long every day, every time
With a lot of these, its not close. As things sit today, the Buckeyes are poised to land the best class of DB's in the history of the school and a very knowlegeble recruiting guru went so far as to suggest it could be the best in CFB history if it breaks like it appears it may.
OSU is legitemately in on 2 DB's that are ranked in the top 10 of the rivals top 100, has a verbal commitment from one ranked at # 18 and a 4th committed kid ranked #65. That is insane. Just cant see anyone displacing those 4 as long as OSU has them in the fold.
OSU is going after the big time DT's and a couple of them are showing legitimate, serious interest. If Mullins has any intention of playing for Ohio State he is simply going to have to wait and let this play itself out. Wilson is a guy you chase to signing day and if he tells you 2 mins before he faxes is LOI in you take him on the spot. #1 over all recruit.
Zeke's reply was strong.
Hairball well, dude you need to work on saying something that is relevant and has some sauce that isnt as weak as that reply.... embarassing actually
LOL Kufos sucked while here was here. Didnt want to play college ball and has floundered in Europe. Was NEVER a player here. Was a wasted scholarship on a kid that had NO INTEREST in going to college or playing college basketball.
2011 was 5 years ago. OSU missed the NCAA and got bounced in the 2nd round of the NIT. The last 2 trips to the NCAA have been an embarrassment . Barely won the opener and got BLOWN OUT in round 2. The year prior we got knocked out in the opener.
In the last 5 seasons, 3 times OSU has failed to land a top 25 class. 14/15 were ranked 10th and 11th respectively. Good but highly ranked? Not in my view.
We dont have a true big guy or a true PG.... kind of tough to win with power forwards and shooting guards.
UNC has 2 FCS teams on their schedule if you cant see the issue with that you arent paying attention at all.
The committee specifically cited the B12 being not considered for 2 reasons... lack of a conference championship and SCHEDULING FCS OPPONENTS.
Why do people keep ignoring the 2 FCS opponents. IF UNC gets in EVERY AD will say well, non conference scheduling does not matter....
Last year the committee MADE A POINT of telling programs SCHEDULE MATTERS.....
Sorry but there are some REAL bad takes in this article... you named one of them...putting clemson in when they just lost? HUH???? UNC why did you not mention the 2, count them, 2 FCS opponents they played. Thier schedule makes Baylor's schedule of last year look herculean!
Loser of the B1G championship which we all probably agree is going to be Iowa is equally bad... Iowa has beaten 2 Ranked B1G teams in Wisconsin and Northwestern. But I cant see the committee saying "yeah, we think Iowa is better than Ohio State."
Stanford with 2 losses... please..... BAD loss to NW. I know, but you say well NW is a good team... True... Stanford scored 6 points. Then they lost to Oregon at home... but then, thats all moot.... Stanford is going down to USC anyway.
In the end, if Clemson loses OSU is in
How will they replace him? Short answer, they wont
Hyde got 3 games and did not start game 4
JTB will sit for Minnesota and wont start Illinois and probably play in the second half....
What people are forgetting here is that Meyer didnt HAVE to suspend JTB. In other words he was not compelled by OSU AD rules to suspend JTB. He did what is in keeping with what Other programs some of which are very high profile have done in dealing with this issue when it comes up.
JTB will sit for the Minnesota game. My guess is given how he has handled players who screw up in the past hear at OSU, JTB wont start the Illinois game either.
Any more than 1 game is going well beyond what other programs do.
As for the comment by the "ding bat" that claims 3-4 bud lights gets everyone at .08-.09 well that is just flat untrue. I can assure you if you start drinking at 7 pm having eaten nothing since breakfast you will blow a LOT higher number than that.... BAC is dependent on things like Size and weight, male of female... if you are drinking on a full or empty stomach... if you are drinking a Carbonated beverage vs non carbonated ( carbonation causes your body absorb alcohol more quickly thus driving your BAC levels higher more quickly )
Look, I knew Baylor has had an easy schedule thus far, but man the rankings of teh defenses they have faced WOW are they bad.
THE BEST they have faced is WVU #74 in total defense. Kansas #123, Texas Tech #122, Rice #108 and SMU #125.
As bad as OSU has been offensively at times Im not so sure that the buckeyes would be beating these teams just as badly.... Kirk... might want to realize this... lol
lol you'd be wrong... Joey is "a fun loving guy" who enjoys the nightlife...
No, he made the correct read most of the time. You dont pitch the ball when you have that kind of penetration and the defender is between you and the pitch man. Thats how you get the ball taken by the defense for 6.
You NEVER pitch the ball in traffic that's how turn overs happen. You force the defender to choose who he is going to defend. If one is going to critique Jones play in running the option its that he needs to do a better job of forcing the defender to choose who he is going to take. But you NEVER pitch the ball in traffic.
This Troll of a HC is yapping like a moron. Hey Bert, how did all those "highly" ranked SEC teams do last year in bowl games when they actually had to play a team not in the SEC or that joke of a non conference y'all schedule?
Oh, thats right... they repeatedly got beat!
?? Marshall, Smith, Miller, Thomas... 3 of those guys have great hands 2 of and 3 of them have elite speed. The idea that OSU doesnt have the WR talent to terrify a defense is so absurd I wonder what you are watching???
kiss of death....
Well, you know what they say....
YOU CANT FIX STUPID
I was a member of scout when it was a free website. Stayed with Scout when the split up occured... stayed with scout even though the insider board became VERY cliquish. I stayed for Bill and Nevada.... When scout announced that Bill was going to be focused elsewhere and would be forced to very frequently post, I was pissed a few days later when Nevada announced his contract with scout wouldnt be renewed I was done.
Apparently the folks that run the website realize they are losing a TON of people and have tried to throw a band-aide on things by asking Bill to focus on OSU in hopes that people wont leave. This is final trainwreck in how Fox has run the scout network into the ground. I will be hanging out here. I hope to learn where Nevada lands but this will be my go to website when it comes to the BUCKEYES!
WE had an OSU football player as an intern for a year who was on the team when Meyer arrived. He said looking back, he didnt know how he made it through that first year. Sheer h*ll. Outside in tshirts and gymshorts doing situps, pushups, bear crawl for a hour... then inside for the "real" work out... he said several guys just quit ....weeds out the wannabe's
Tim you make a fatal flaw in your supposition. You cite Alabama as the last team to repeat. This is not true under today's format. NO ONE has repeated. Last year was the first year that CFB had a play off.
A more logical way to examine this is to ask are there examples of programs in D1AA that DO have a playoff who have repeated and is it fairly common or exceedingly rare? Well, we find that it is actually fairly common. D1AA started the NCAA play off format in 1978 and there have been 6 times that a team repeated App State won back to back, to back championships. North Dakota St won it 4 straight years...
This isnt the old days where 1 loss and you were pretty much done.. this is get to the play off's and win. Frankly, its a bit easier under this format than the old one.
