A head coach of any sport must trust his/her assistants. I have a feeling OSU and Urban will have that trust again next year on the offensive side. I don't often place guaranteed votes/choices for OSU's offense. But when I do, it involves the inventor and guru of the spread offense and the HC abilities of UFM.
IMHO, OSU will be among the top statistical offenses in FBS for the 2017 season. JT will be back to form and the wrs will be MUCH better than in years past. I expect some young guys (sophomores and frosh) to get some serious playing time, which will push the upper class wrs. I have a feeling this could be a special year for OSU's offense.
"Shit happens bum juice"
I could care less what he says...the offense will be leaps and bounds better than it was the last two years. The 2015 season is all I need as proof. This below is what I said after the NIU game that year. And please, don't try to convince me that they were "a good MAC team." Don't even go there.
Not any more...
Don't sleep on Myers and Davis getting an opportunity to start (as I mentioned on the, "Who Will Start at RT" voting comment section). The Oline regression is a glaring problem and it also needs fixed, as does the WR situation(s).
Which proves all the more that Ed and Tim were as inept as a bunch of blind bats. I still question why Urban had them calling plays. Take over for the love of GOD! The 2015 season should have been one of the most high powered offenses in OSU's history. However they barely beat NIU (20-13) who was 8-4 and 2nd in the MAC. WTF!
I'm not sold on McLaurin...see exhibit A above in the article. That pass interference call saved him from looking like he did ALL night long vs ok dbs. Bama's DBs would have made OSU's Wrs look even more like a clown show. It truly was a godsend that OSU lost to Clemson. Bama would have embarrassed our WR corp...
As far as I am concerned, the "Clown Show" is back in full effect. Please riddle me this, why wasn't this OSU's WR corp all year long.
Victor, Brown, Samuel/Hill, and Mack?
This year should be...Mack, Victor, McCall/Glover-Williams/Hill, and Baugh/Alexander at TE (with freshman getting in for some playing time too)? If McClaurin, Dixon or Clark are out there, I am going to throw my remote at the T.V. like a spoiled Bama fan! I'd even throw Paris C. in there too if he continues to f!@k up on blocking and route running. He cost OSU a TD vs PSU because he was supposed to clear out the CB and SS, but ran a bad route. Samuel was subsequently tackled...and you know what happened after that. Stop the loyalty to players that are not performing at a high level.
I think it's funny hearing everyone say (on other sites not here) that JT is leaving with Beck. LMFAO!!!!!!!!! I bet with the new "young" Qb coach and Wilson's eventual hiring, JT improves from what we have seen the last 2 years. Bets anyone??? ;)
This made me change my mind on how OSU's defense will approach this game. Thank you Mr. Watson for providing more bulletin board material for an already hungry defense. Thank you indeed, sir!
The *star ratings don't mean shit! It's all about player development. Some have more acclaim coming out of HS, while others are still developing. To me, it's about coaching and how well they are developed. Urban is better at gathering the 4 and 5* talent, but let's not forget about how well Tress used to develop 3 stars into NFL talent. Urban is doing just as well, if not better at developing all the players. Either way, it sure is GREAT to be a Buckeye fan for the last 16 years! That's all I have to say ;)
