It seems like most teams lately have backed off aggressively going after punts as punters have become much better at getting run into and selling it.  Teams just don't want to risk giving up a penalty for a first down for a low percentage chance at a block.  Its probably better statistically to just set up your return.

I agree with the op about special teams becoming a increasing concern.  Going back to the Clemson game with the killer muffed punt and then the st disaster on saturday it seems like we may be losing winnable games because of special teams play.

Did any one else think that Roby was grandstanding a little bit after that hit?  I seem to remember him kind of talking trash towards the Iowa side of the filed.  I think that if he had just gotten up and gone back to the huddle he might have avoid the ejection, if not the penalty.  Not to mention you probably shouldn't show boat after you just gave up a first down.

Nice.  Especially how you capitalized "Cricketer", much respect to our cousins across the ocean

Nicely done, its been a while since I've seen that movie.  Another good quote- "Bart! How many times have I told you to wash your hands after weekly cross burnings?"

I'm not too disappointed, of the four teams that jumped us 3 (Stanford, ND, UF) beat ranked teams, two on the road and one against the number 2 team in the country, and Texas put up 66 points in a road game against an SEC team, all of those things are more impressive than what we did on saturday.  If we beat MSU convincingly we'll move back up.

"Jake (all I do is catch TDs) Stoneburner"

 

Maybe that explains why he dropped a few easy catches during the game, he didn't want to mess up his touchdowns-per-catch percentage

I agree with you there, I thought he was going to be the one to step into Boom Herron's shoes.  When he holds onto the ball he seems to be a pretty elusive guy to tackle, although admittedly a lot of his touches last year came at the end of games that were already decided.  Its too bad, I don't see how a guy can play running back throughout high school and college and still fumble the ball so much, you'd think it be  a relatively easily problem to correct with proper coaching.

Looking back on it now, it does seem weird how quickly Van Halen sold that song to Pepsi for TV commercials, which is when it blew up.  In hindsight, I think maybe Eddie Van Halen realized after 0u812 that the post-David Lee Roth band was never going to get to 1984 hieghts, so he decided to cash out on the whole thing by selling songs to Pepsi and whoever else would buy them.

I'm with buckeyebacker here, how many of us slept on Toledo last year because they were a MAC team? I think the bucks win, but I don't think they cover the spread.

"A little more than nine months after those statements, Meyer will hand the keys to his Corvette – the Ohio State offense – to Miller, who is no-longer a 16-year-old that just passed his driver’s test."

 

This wouldn't be my first choice of of cars to compare the offense to, last years offense was about as exciting as a Toyota Corrolla.  Hopefully Urban can at least get us to something like a Acura TL this year.

I hope your right, but like the article points out, I don't see Hall as a workhorse like Beanie/Boom are.  I agree that he had some nice plays last year, but last year we had Pryor's scrambling to keep defenses honest, this year I don't think any DC is going to be worried about Bauserman's mobility.  Hall is a great compliment to Boom, but with both Boom and Adams out I have my doubts about whether he can carry the offense (which he'll have to do if Bauserman starts).  I will be extremely happy if he proves me wrong.

I like Jordan Hall, but he's always reminded me more of Brandon Saine than a pounding run-between-the-tackles type back.  I hate to be a naysayer, but I don't see where the offense is going to come from with Buaserman/Hall as the starting backfield.
