KJ should be used in the slot and outside. The guy in the slot doesn't always have to be the H-Back. Three receiver sets traditionally are run 3 three true receivers.
Braxton Miller throwing strikes in that Philly Brown highlight film. How easily we forget.
Maybe the coaching staff already knows who plans to transfer. Ever think of that? And they don't cut people or tell them that they aren't welcome back. They have honest conversations about the likelihood of future playing time and the kids have to decide if they want to be a scout team guy for 2-3 more years or go elsewhere and get a fresh start. There are a small number of examples where such a conversation led to a player improving their work ethic and contributing in a big way (although I think those stories are somewhat embellished, I.e. Adolphis Washingtom).
I firmly believe that Urban believes that history will repeat itself and makes a calculated guess regarding attrition and recruiting. I suspect they may be a little surprised about Lewis and Lattimore returning though.
Lattimore returning is HUGE!!!! As is Lewis!
Dead last in pass blocking efficiency out of 174 tackles. That is not an opinion but a factual statistic. Very alarming.
Funniest thing I've heard all day.
Merry Christmas Eve Eve everybody!
That's not going to happen. JT has the potential to be in the Heisman race next year but I don't see him being a high draft pick. Don't think he would be drafted at all in this upcoming draft.
I agree. Love JT but it's frustrating to watch this offense that he is running. I'd take Troy or Braxton over JT. I know it's not all on him that's how I see it.
Unless the rule has changed he would have to transfer to a school and enter a grad program that is not offered at Ohio State. Limited options for guys leaving big schools.
I have a few friends who are Pitt alum. They went to the Pitt-Clemson game this year and said that the Clemson fans were very friendly and hospitable to them, even after Clemson lost the game.
I hope it's not Fick's last game. That would mean we lost.
Huh? That ain't gonna happen.
I said the same thing. Think Michael Hill is from SC. When I read the headline I assume the article would be about him.
Marcus Freeman has my vote.
Pass protection is a big problem. I think a lot of the wide receiver issues would disappear if KJ Hill was more involved in the game plan.
The defense has greatly improved under Meyer's tenure and I attribute that to coaching more than talent. But I don't buy the theory that 2016 OSU would crush the 2012 version. That team definitely gave up points but Brax and company could score at will when necessary. It is unfortunate that they had the post season ban that year. Who knows what could have been.
These guys have so much time to fill on air and what else is there to talk about? My interpretation is that the committee didn't even consider Penn St. over Ohio State. They did consider Penn St. of Washington. But at the end of the day they were still comparing a 2 loss conference champ to a 1 loss conference champ. The 2 losses knocked them out. Last years Ohio State team had a comparable season to this year but Michigan State was a 1 loss conference champ with a head to head (on the road) win vs. Ohio State. Totally different scenario. 2014 had a one loss conference champion on the outside looking in and it took at 59 point win by a one loss Ohio State team (also a conference champ) to get them to make that jump. Some people are making a huge deal about Ohio State being the first non-conference champ to make the playoffs and that they didn't even win their division. First, this is only year 3 of the playoffs. Second, they did tie for first place in the division. Third, Michigan St would have been the first 2 loss team to make the playoffs (again only the 3rd year). Personally, I think the Big Ten should use overall record first, before head to head to decide the tie breaker for division champ (most people do not share that opinion though).
I love JT. He is a winner, has a ton of class, a true Buckeye. But seriously, he is not even close to being ready for the NFL. I'm not sure he will be a year from now either. His accuracy is seriously lacking, he locks onto receivers, and hangs on to the ball too long. Then there are the knuckle balls we saw Saturday. I remember watching Big Ben play a game in college with 25 MPH winds and he was slinging the ball around the place like there was no wind at all. JT just does not have a NFL arm. And that is the difference between JT and Cardale, arm strength.
The only way JT leaves is if he graduates and transfers to Texas to play for Tom Herman next year.
I can't pick just one. I'd go with
3. Terrell - Imagine Pryor running the read option.
You hitting the eggnog already?
This is as of today. TTUN will lose to the Buckeyes. At that point it's a toss up between Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Louisville. Personally, I'm not buying Louisville and would go with a 2 loss conference champ over Louisville or a 1 loss Washington.
Conley struggled a bit in the Michigan State game a few years ago, but that was the only time he struggled. Annette has a ways to go.
I have to assume that Eric Smith isn't fully recovered or maybe lost some speed due to the injury. I share the frustration with Webb but oddly the coaches grade him out well in most games.
Joe looked great. But let's keep things in perspective, it was mop up time and Nebraska had quit playing. We've seen this kind of thing happen countless times before over the years. It's just not wise to assume this would have been how he would have performed had he started the game..
Funny how people have forgotten Braxton. Dude was amazing.
