It will never happen, even though it should. Just look at 2012...how in the WORLD did he not win it and PSU's coach did. It's a joke and personally IDC if he does or doesn't win the award. As long as OSU keeps plowing through the competition, including November 8th at midnight or so in East Lansing. Keep the train moving... that's all I care about!
This is the most idiotic spin on an OSU loss I've ever seen on 11W. Sorry, you're completely WRONG! The VA Tech loss will most definitely keep OSU out of the play offs if there aren't impressive wins from here out. Meaning, they must win impressively like they are with a potential close win against MSU (which that could be forgiven). The VA Tech game....not so much. They looked pathetic last night as for the last three weeks for that matter. I'm not sure how that can be overlooked........
This isn't a premature statement; JT is a MUCH better overall QB than Braxton! It's not even close IMO. How can anyone here say that just because Brax360 is a great runner and has a hand cannon (not too accurate btw) is a much better QB than JT. It was obvious to me in JT's JR and short SR highlights that he has better check down ability than Braxton's exhibited, ever. I don't see that changing with a year off...
Sorry JT is OSU's QB going forward. Braxton will have to improve astronomically to beat out JT next season. Especially after the season I anticipate JT having going forward. For crying out loud have any of you ever seen Braxton hit 5 different WRs in a game, ever? The answer is rhetorical as the inquiry of the day about Herman. OSU's offense is BETTER with JT in at QB. The facts are the facts and stats don't lie (neither does game film).
Not to mention this too^^^^^^^^^^ +1 for you sir!
Let me pose this question...
Would you leave for a HC gig that may or not pan out if you had two potential Heisman candidates at QB coming back and you were the OC & QB coach of a highly respected football team?
Insert rhetorical answer here____________________________________________________.
Seabass has my utmost approval. They don't like OSU, and no matter how much $$$ they bring in, you can almost bet they'll turn on OSU if an SEC team ends up with one lose at seasons end (or possibly a two lose team....don't be surprised). I have to agree with Seabass on this one...F-EM! OSU has to win out in impressive fashion with a close win over MSU. If OSU loses to MSU, then watch out for the "I told you so" from Mark May and the other retarded bunch from ESPIN. Guaranteed!
Cow turd....interesting. I think she could have come up with a much better insult than that.
One week at a time.
However I think OSU is right where they need to be. Waiting in the shadows for more teams to lose. The SEC teams will all lose at least one game or two. I don't see any other B1G team besides MSU being a threat to OSU (may be Minnesota...may be). That being said, I can't see OSU being left out if FSU is unbeaten and ND loses to FSU.
If OSU beats MSU and stays with one lose, I can't see them being left out. To me, OSU has one of the best chances to squeak into the National Playoff if they win out, and by years end, many of the mighty ESPN analyst will agree also. (they're already are saying JT is a "possible" Heisman Candidate...just wait to see what they say if OSU beats MSU)
Here's the only things I can "bitch" about Herman and Meyer's play calling:
1. Not running Hyde on 4th and 2 against MSU.
2. Not taking it to Wisconsin at home with a 31-10 lead at halftime.
3. The entire team and coaches not adjusting in the Va Tech game.
Other than that, I'd say they've earned their pay as DI coaches at OSU. Yeah, I'm pretty sure 28-3 is ok with me.
Ohio State will have to contend with talented wide receiver Stefon Diggs, whom Meyer recruited to play for him at Florida. “I really thought we had a legitimate shot at him … he’s as good as there is in America.”
Meyer actually tried to recruit him at Ohio State, not Florida...and it's from 11W no less:-) Granted, it was too late but a valiant effort!
No..offense struggles to find an identity...again. However the defense does well. I'm not seeing a 32 point win...not with that offense I saw in person last week.
Loved it all...as usual. Aside from calling El Guapo the best RB of the century. You forgot about this guy...pretty sure he was better. He has the hardware to prove it, two times over.
I'm still trying to figure out why Rod Smith, very prototypical to El Guapo, isn't even getting any carries. I'm really glad the staff is high on Samuel and Elliot, but why in holy hell are they not playing Smith? I saw that pic on the Wednesday Skull Session and wondered even more (because he looks like a middle linebacker!) I realize I'm going to come off as another Urban hater, which I'm not, but why is this happening. You can't tell me that Rod couldn't have done more damage running the ball up the middle into teeth of Va Tech's defense then Elliot and Samuel did. I'm starting to wonder about the validity of this coaching staff if they keep making these decisions to play younger guys over guys who've been in the program and proven they're good (as long as he doesn't fumble). It just makes little to no sense to me...
MSU and possibly PSU. We'll win the others. I'd expect a loss in the bowl game as well...unless OSU plays a MAC team. There were SO many issues that I saw in person Saturday night and I don't see them going away anytime soon.
I won't be making a sextuplet response this time because I'm on my work computer. However I seem to remember someone saying this could end up being a dynamic duo like in 2006 when Meyer was at FL. It seemed to work ok in 2006 against our best OSU squad since 2002. I'm not too worried, but that might have something to do with keeping a positive attitude since I recently attained Va Tech and IU tickets for face value (28 A).
