Let's not forget the class of 2015 , of which almost all of them red-shirted. A year with Marotti building them up and the coaches coaching them up !
"LeCounte backed Judson's story, but mentioned he thought Meyer was making a joke because Judson was wearing Michigan colors."
What a dick, wearing ttun colors. Good riddance.
Sounds like we dodge a bullet with this kid.
As long as the playbook prepares them to win the CFP - that's all I really care about.
"OSU's athletic department generated $167,166,065 in 2014-15 revenue before doling out $15,033,208 in expenses, a difference of $13,132,857."
Your missing a 4 : $154,033,208 not $15,033,208.
Ah, Papa Joes. So many memories. Buckets of beer and peanut shells. Cold eggs and warm beer on ttun weekends. R.I.P.
I disagree. The single biggest reason for the lack of offense was the loss of Tom Herman. Beck wasn't up to the task, not that it's entirely his fault - expecting him to come in and pick up where Herman left off is unreasonable. All season long the offense just wasn't clicking and Meyer referred to "communication issues" and it took a loss to finally remedy the situation. There's a reason Meyer made the off season move of moving Warinner to the press box and demoting a popular TE coach. And that reason is : TIm Beck.
Two Words : Tim Beck.
But wasn't that pretty much the only trey he made ? Love me some Craft, but I remember him taking too many shots where I was like "Why are you taking that shot ??"
Yea, add in Silk's comments about players not working very hard last year, you got to start looking hard at the coach and culture he's instilling.
Ugh, so frustrating watching this team. Lack of hustle. Terrible shot selection. Bad shooting. They look so undisciplined. I hope they grow up during off season.
Wouldn't trade Meyer for anyone, but he is human after all. Nobody is perfect and the pressure put on him by Buckeye Nation ( and himself ) is intense. Having said that, it shouldn't have taken him 11 games and a loss to figure out his Offensive Coordinator couldn't coordinate the offense. "The Grind" isn't a very positive rallying cry. And the QB situation could have been handled better. Claiming that the skill set of JT and Jones were the same so it didn't matter who started was a head scratcher. The coaching staff let down the players this year, IMHO.
I worked on the NCAA game for 6 1/2 years and was very disappointed it got canceled. The reason it couldn't continue with generic names is that the conferences and schools started pulling out. Ohio State was the first school to not allow their brand to be in the game. There was a brief time before the actual cancellation that the game was still being made - without Ohio State. Dark days...
So we can keep Warinner in the booth !
"tight ends coach Tim Hinton will remove to an administrative role within the program"
Just need an Offensive Coordinator that knows how to coordinate the offense. Beck _really_ needs to step up his game or it could be his last in Columbus. Warinner probably is going to need to be on sideline with a less experienced O-line. This is my biggest concern for next year.
Glad to see TG getting his head on right ! Kill the wildcat, though. Seems to me it fails more often than it produces anything good. Don't know why teams keep trying to force it.
I suppose we will end up with a nice recruiting class. There only thing that concerns me with all the early exits is depth for next year. We should be fine at WR and H-back - as long as people don't start going down in spring with broken legs and what not.
Yea, I gotta agree with Kobe on that one - he didn't ask him to run the baseline. Kinda of silly for Silk to ask for someone else to pay for his tech.
Take responsibility for your own actions.
No worries. If he see better opportunities for him elsewhere, then best of luck to him. Meyer will get a excellent class. 3 stars can become all stars, 5 stars can become busts. Coaching is key, our coaches are some of the best.
Go Bucks ! Beat the Domers !
I think part of the problem is that Ohio State is a premier team with a excellant fan base that loves to travel. Any bowl would jump at the chance to take them and it leads to OSU being matched in a game that maybe they shouldn't be in, since bowls are all about the money and not about which teams "deserve: to be there.
Too harsh. We hold our athletes to too high of a standard. He will be punished by the courts - why isn't that enough ? It's just a game after all...
They're back because the SEC wan't very good this year. They had a home loss in conference too. They had games where they didn't look all good. If not for a miracle 4 & 25 by Ark over Ole Miss, they would not be in playoffs.
Well, technically we are co-champs of our division. We get a trophy for that, for whatever that's worth.
Yea, I'm disappointed too. No doubt the players are. This year is on the Offense coaching staff, imho. Loosing Herman was a setback they _may_ have finally recovered from - we'll see. Not sure if it's because Beck just didn't mesh or Warriner's need to be on the sideline or both, but they let down a talented team. Now they need to get over disappointment and take out the Irish. Meyer is gonna have to earn is paycheck to get his team in the proper mindset. He supposed to be master motivator, this will be a test.
