Birm, do you think we have a good shot at Malik Jefferson?
By your logic then West Virginia should be ranked pretty good because they hung with Alabama til the end. Also despite TCU killing them Oklahoma st should be ranked too since they barely lost to Florida st and it was because of a couple blown calls.
Don't forget Terry McLaurin too. We're going to have speed to spare for the next 3 years at least.
His mom is a anchor or reporter for a Columbus tv station isn't she? Am I thinking of the right player?
Him and the GM have the same personality and keeps bumping heads over everything.
He would be a great lb coach. I would love to have him teaching them what he knows. You can tell by how he talks about the defenses he covers that he's not just a great player but would be an awesome coach.
That's 2 weeks in a row Steubenville lost to a Ohio st commit qb. They got beat by Massillon last week.
I'm with you on this one. He made his bed now he can lay in it.
I completely agree with you. I was just saying how good Watson looks in 2 games. If he keeps playing at that level he's going to be an All-American if not Heisman winner. It looks like Barrett could challenge him for both if he keeps progressing.

I don't. The final say on play calls is by Fickell. I was cautiously optimistic when they brought Ash in. You can see the difference because Ash put 5,6 or even 7 dbs on the field last year at Arkansas. They have enough talented dbs to do it here but Fickell made it clear before the season he doesn't like doing that.
I said the same thing but that's Fickell. It looked exactly like last year playing spread offenses. Top it off with no over the top help the next play and that screams Luke Fickell.
Look where? Les Miles won't leave LSU to go to Michigan. Jim Harbaugh won't leave contending for super bowls to have to build a program again. He would have to recruit for 3 years to run his system at Michigan. If anything they'll grab a successful MAC or other small school coach. At least Nussmeier has a relationship with the next couple recruiting classes targets of Michigan. Most teams look internal 1st then out to find a coach.
I think it'll be Nussmeier. That's probably one of the reasons why they hired him this year. He'll be the only guy that wants it right now.
The conference needed a B1G win ( pun intended) but as soon as I saw it I told my girlfriend that it would get spun around and be said that Missouri isn't as good as everyone thought. What we need now is for Missouri to knock off some top SEC teams in the near future. Props to Indiana for a great win but outside of B1G country this will get reversed.
Who else do they got? Stephen Morris? They've tried him and he's worse than Gardner. As sad as it is Gardner is still their best qb.
It doesn't matter if they win or lose today cHoke will get fired by the end of the year. They would have to beat Michigan st and Ohio st and that won't happen.
Birm says he'll be a Buckeye so I'm confident he'll be in Columbus next year.
I think they need to run a empty set spread offense with either Samuel or Elliott or both in the slots. Then you can always motion them to the backfield when you want to run. Plus having Samuel in space potentially with a lb on him is always a good thing.
If he were being gronk he would be shirtless with another guy in the pic.
The bears are compensating for the fact that they've had the worst rush defense over the last 2 seasons.
If both sides of the ball keep improving and maturing together this team is going to be tough for at least the next 3 years. Nothing against Braxton but I believe we could recruit top level wr prospects better with JT than with him. He distributed the ball better in 3 games this year than Braxton has in 3 years. The recruits are noticing it too. Mack made the statement he would love to have Barrett as his qb. I bet other wrs think so too. Hopefully one that feels that way after seeing us play is Christian Kirk. (fingers crossed)
If they would've ran that offense against VT I think we would've won. We would've beat the blitz and our athletes looked better in that offense because they were one on one in space. Of course VT tackles better than Kent st but it would've moved the ball better.
Thomas is a sophomore. In 3 years he'll be gone.
The B1G policy on failed drug tests is that 2 fails and you're not allowed to play anymore. So unless he gets an exception we've probably seen the last of Noah Spence in the scarlet and gray.
