Just look at the history of this series since Thad has been coach. 11-11 and almost all fall within a 4 point window. This game will come down to the last second and in situations like that when you have the best player on the court (D'angelo Russell) you have as good of a shot as can be. Take in the fact that we lost on a buzzer beater at their house we very much have a shot.
Very favorable draw should win at least one and could easily beat Sparty and Maryland assuming chalk holds. The gap between seeds 2-6 is very very small so I believe that the Buckeyes could win 3, maybe 4 depending on if Wisconsin reaches the final.
Its going to be very interesting to see which DL Urban values the most. We got so many highly rated guys interested in us and cannot take everyone. I just cannot believe we could say sorry to guys like Josh King.
If Matta bottles up that Amir Williams from last night and Russell & Co. are hitting from the outside...you never know. They throttled the 2nd best team Maryland so its hard to say they can't take a shot at Wisky.
This cannot hurt the Buckeyes already extremely high chances of landing Sibley either
UPDATED: Brian Hartline could really help the Browns, just got let go by the Dolphins
All are great choices but I am very excited about Jerome Baker. The fact that he could be an All-American type LB or RB is really amazing. He is built like a truck and if he mentally can learn quickly could be a force very early in his career, almost a bigger Darron Lee.
That is a picture of Ivey correct? That would certainly qualify as a signing day surprise!! Urban special.
My interest has definitely risen, Urban is a rock star recruiter whose reach is more national than Tressels. Free sites like 11W also have really helped peak my interest considering I would never choose to pay close $12 a month just to find out what high school kids are thinking. So thanks Birm and Co.
I totally agree I think sometimes my view of this team gets clouded by the lack of progression from the seniors. The future is very bright its just a shame that D'Angelo isn't on one of those teams like 2011 that complimented a great senior class with strong freshman like DeShaun and Sully.
I have always liked the Buckeyes but never really cared about recruiting until Urban brought a bit of excitement to it. That new recruiting interest led me to discovering the greatest Buckeye fan site out there which has definitely increased my already very high interest in the Buckeyes. Twitter & 11W probably has increased my interest because of how easy it is to get great detailed information for free.
It really is a shame that we are wasting our year with him with a team that really isn't that great. It would have been amazing to see the senior class grow and compliment his talent.
If he comes cool, if he doesn't that is fine too. Joe Burrow is the better and more polished QB.. 63 TDs to 2 INTs is amazing.
Everybody is mentioning Johnnie Dixon and I completely agree if he is healthy his talent will be on full display but one guy that quietly got plenty of snaps was Noah Brown. I would love to see him build off last seasons mainly blocking role and be a bigger part of the offense after getting some big time snaps in the post season run. I also am very excited to see both Marshon Lattimore & Erick Smith. Erick Smith was a hard hitting contributor on special teams and played very well ableit mostly in garbage or mop up time; and it was a huge shame that Lattimore had that hamstring injury if he is healthy that duo will be special in the back end.
I voted for Braxton simply because I'm not convinced that his arm will be ready in time to get ready for the season. IF Braxton is healthy I think it goes: JT, Braxton and Cardale. JT just seems to have such command of the offense, not as many big plays as Cardale or Braxton but more methodical.
I don't think that he is going to take this job but it doesn't hurt to listen to what they offer. A lot of times I don't agree with his defensive philosophies or schemes but I will wish him the best wherever he goes. His one year as an interim coach was rough and I have a lot of respect for what he did that year. He held this program together the best he could do with all the uncertainty surrounding sanctions and even his status. So if FAU offers him the right opportunity for him I wish him the best.
