I miss Tom Herman...
Don't forget about the weather...that seemed to be a hot topic
excuse by players and coaches during the post-game presser.
I, like Kyle, watched this a second time after getting home from the Shoe. I watched it almost 3xs because of all the stopping and rewinding. Personally I have NO IDEA why they did not attach the middle more in the 3rd quarter (or hell the entire game). TE, Slot, and RB seam or wheels were open all day long with 2 safeties back almost the entire game. I also question why they did not run the ball more, even if Eze was a bit suspect from his problems during the week. Warren Ball, Samuel, and many others can run the ball if Eze couldn't as the 11 carries indicated he was apparently not 100%...I guess.
As I used to say to my HS kids when I coached, "You learn more from a loss than you do a win." Let's hope that's the same mentality this team has going into AA. They're going to need it!
They'll miss him at UH when he's at Texas kicking ass in a year to two. Mark my words because it's cash $$$$$!
As far as I am concerned, this extra social media BS is a direct reason why his progressions suck while dropping back to throw. Perhaps if he has and always was more worried about film study, may be this would not be happening right now. I hope he knows who's in his corner come April of 2016...because whoever was in his corner last year should have told him to GO PRO! Good luck to him and hopefully he stays the HELL of twitter. Sorry for the "stay off my lawn" mentality with this one, but it has not helped CJ's side of things IMHO.
Here's my top 4 until OSU plays better D. Look at MSU...they've had two suspect games, drop to 7th. The ONLY reason we haven't is 2014! Until we play better D, I have us #2. One of these will change after this weekend...
I love how everyone is reading into the captain choice and that JT runs the offense better and this and that. I personally think Cardale will start and I haven't changed my mind. CJ will be the starter until he screws it up on or off the field. Bank it, cuz it's cash money!
See ya in 2016 Noah! Get well soon.
Sad fact is, the Herbie haters are one negative comment away from crawling out of their troll caves to go at it again. I've always been on his side and always will be. He's a Buckeye and he works for an entity that doesn't allow him to be a homer. Now he has a reason to make these predictions.
One of those scores was a pick six too. I agree with many here that the D for OSU is MUCH better. However, Va Tech's DBs are really good. Of course, so are OSU's. The thin numbers at wide out for the Buckeyes is a big deal and is also a glaring mismatch for OSU v Va Tech. You almost have to be blind not to see this...
I believe this will be a bigger blow than many above in this comment section are predicting. Losing Noah was a BIG deal with blocking and especially great receiving ability. I'm not nearly as
cocky confident as many of our Buckeye Brothers here. That Va Tech secondary is licking their chops...as is Bud Foster.
Clear Fork Valley Local 1993-1995 Started at Defensive Tackle at 6'0 215. Freshmen didn't play back then for CF...we had more than enough for varsity with 10-12...that's not the case anymore.
Stats-SO 34 tackles 2 sacks JR 78 tackles 6 sacks SR 49 tackles 8* sacks (*record as far as I know still is). We had 9 players selected for the All Star game that was always played at Galion's field. My senior class won the All Sports Award because our girls and boys literally won the conference in EVERY sport. That has never been accomplished at CF and probably never will be again due to the Ohio Cardinal Conference is MUCH tougher than the old Mohegan Area Conference.
Notable players I played against, Dan Stultz played for Orrville, a team CF first played in the 1994 State Playoffs who was as an All State Kicker (CF never beat Orrville until 2009 season when CF went to the third round of the play offs. That's 9 straight losses to them because they ended up in the OCC, ouch!) He kicked two FGs one being 55 yards out in the rain and wind at his face...no shit! I watched it from my position on Defense...it was short majestic...in a strange way. We lost to the eventual state runner in Orrville who got roasted by Germantown Valley View in the finals. I miss High School football.
I eventually went to Heidelberg College, now known as Heidelberg University. We went 0-20 my Freshman and Sophomore seasons. I hung it up before my junior year when I tried benching 445 pounds in our preseason work outs. I actually got 420 the time before...shouldn't have went higher (no pun intended;-) I unfortunately tore my labrum and part of my rotator cuff bc I pressed it off my chest at an angle and my left arm went up before my right arm...I heard a POP...and never played organized football again. I also used to be able to pitch at around 90 mph...until that injury.
