We already have a TE committed, although I'm pretty sure he'll grow into an OT. My thing with Alexander is that I instantly think of Benjamin, the way he high points the ball, the way he runs routes, I just love the way the kid plays and think he'll be on the field quick at OSU considering outside of Noah brown no one matches his attributes and game.
Bennett/Carter would be the NT..Bosa at DE, think JJ Watt. What ppl are failing to notice is that our backup LB is better than our backup DE, agIn this is just an opinion more then anything else, we wouldn't scrap the 4-3 entirely it'd be used to mix up our looks to get our best players on the field.
As of this writing it's Kwon #2 on the depth chart, I'm a bigger fan of a 3-4 personally as it seals the edge and Miller to me hasn't done much as a Red-Shirt senior. Let's not forget he was passed over by multiple players and is starting as a result of circumstances than performance. Now if Holmes is the new starting DE then I'll retract this, but a 3-4 look could do us some good come B1G conference play
So you'd rather Steve Miller on the field then Kwon?
He looked fired up to, Love that attitude from him! Have a feeling this isn't the last we heard from him!
Finally throwing to the TE could only do us good in their recruitments. I'd worry about 2016 after the season is over, let's not forget the influence Hillard and Hubbard will have with the Cincy kids. ND is always going to have an influence with the Catholic schools and always will, what needs to be seen is who is going to help recruit them to OSU because as we know Wariner will lose vs ND's coach straight up. I'm thinking a lil Zach Smith/Urbz will be needed for a serious shift in their recruitments to take place. So far this class the only player out of the top 10 we don't have that I want is Baker, however at the sametime I look at our LB situation right now and to be honest we'll survive.
You need to recruit nationally to win in football and basketball. You cherry pick your states best (9-15) in football and (1-4) in basketball. If the kid wants to play elsewhere it's his loss, You can only walk a horse to water.
Whatever Katherine Webb calls him in bed works for me.
The kid as a Freshman made 2nd team all-county as a 215 Pound DT...Now your saying to yourself oh that's cute, well it was in BROWARD Country, unquestionably the most talented football laden county in the nation. He's already up to 255-260 will prob be a DT and one hell of one, To think he's been playing and dominating High D1 Kids years older then him is when you start to get giddy.
Why can't they run a basic offense, We have 4 starters that are in their 3rd year or more of major college football with the same line coach and offensive co-ordinator. How they are struggling is beyond me.
I watched alot more Florida 2010 then you probably, I was curious how they'd stack up without Tebow and quite frankly Meyer stubbornly kept the same offense while proclaiming he was going to adjust it to fit Brantley the whole off-season. Before you bash my compariison without any logic, look up that years team and how they struggled on offense and why they did. You'll hear many of the same reasons/excuses your hearing now.
Only 1 receiver from that season had over 350 yards receiving (D Thompson had 570), only 1 RB had over 380 yards running (Demps 551).
This was after Meyer was into his 6th season and Brantley Tossed 9 TD's to 10 Picks. JT is currently at 3 TD/4INT.
Then why be so predictable on offense, where are the option sweeps and multiple screens? Were not running many short to intermediate routes to take the pressure off the O-line, if it's so young and inexperienced then how about gameplanning ways to avoid our second string QB from running the ball/Sacked 40 times already in 2 games! You can't have a back-up qb get dinged that much and I'm not even counting the hits he took off incomplete passes.
You have to be a bit concerned. Not to take away from Gibson's athletic ability or leadership but to be suspended twice from your football team is really eye-opening to me. Not only was his team playing a solid nationally ranked team (seems like every week) anyone who plays/played football knows your star player has to mess up bigtime to be suspended in anyway shape or form. Things are magnified 100000% in college, if he's having issues now that aren't being fixed I can't see him lasting at a major program more than 18 months before ending up at random Mississippi JC.
This makes me happy! Can't wait till Nov 29!
Can we have someone dressed up as Iron Man KO this loser!
18 CLAIMED NATIONAL TITLES SOUNDS LIKE TO MUCH, PRETTY SURE AUBURN CLAIMED 15 OF THE SAME TITLES.
Absolutely not! They have a tough job, I'd like to see anyone who thinks they can honestly do better go in there, it's hard enough to ump a baseball game let alone a football game.
