I think Gary Pinkel would have been a candidate. What he does done at Mizzou is impressive.
For as big as Saine was, he didn't run between the tackles very well. He was a great receiver out of the backfield. It was disappointing that Saine and Herron weren't on the field together more often.
I'd love to see Dane catching passes in Meyer's spread. He was a great receiver.
I'm pretty sure he lives there now....
Isn't Cris Carter an assistant there at St. Thomas Aquinas?!?! Ace recruiter on St. Thomas' staff
19 hours? I would've said the hell with this after about 2.
If speed kills, they will live forever
Which is just ridiculous. I mean, if OSU is willing to play Oregon, Texas, USC, why not play a SEC team like Georgia or LSU? Or anybody for that matter? I believe the SEC teams would not schedule and then criticize the B1G and the others for a weak schedule. That's the easy way to cop out.
Awful?? Garbage? Borderline FCS material?
SC has just 2 conference titles, 1969 and 1933, a 7-12 bowl record and a 51% winning percentage. Not exactly an elite program.
Furthermore it took them until 2011 to get their first 11 win season.
Four is probably the best option. Transparency is a major issue on this subject. Look at James Jackson several years ago, he accused Tressel of oversigning.
Jackson, a wide receiver, says he was asked to transfer after last season, two years into his college career.
"They had an oversigning issue," Jackson said. "They had to free up a few scholarships, and coach (Jim) Tressel told me I probably wouldn't play and maybe Ohio State wasn't the place for me."
Fair or not, there are two sides to every story, Jackson could be bitter, who knows, we don't know.
Who's choice is it to leave? Coach/University's? The players? This is why 4 year scholarships are becoming the way of the future and was something Coach Meyer wants. Fortunately, Ohio State offers these. At the same token, scholarships must be earned, and why many want them to be renewed each year. What if a player is not working hard and is not taking care of their responsibilities?
Option four is probably combined with option 5 being the tactics of many in the SEC (cough, Saban, cough Miles, cough)
Yeah but Boone got arrested just before the combine.
Baugh has 4 years eligibility remaining and a lot of time.
There is plenty of potential in the WR corps. Now it is time put it all together.
It is time for someone to step and become a possession WR who is a truly a great route runner who can catch 60 passes this season. I'm looking at you, Smith and Thomas.
It is possible he may not return to 2015. Maybe give the NFL a shot and see what happens.
And GAs typically leave or their role changes after a year or two.
Who DVs something like this?
This team had to replace all 4 starters on the DL this year. And considering how they were 3rd in the nation with 42 sacks, is pretty impressive. They played a lot of 1st and 2nd year players on the DL.
Consider this: Washington, Spence, Bosa, Carter, Marcus, and Schutt were either backups or still in HS. These guys are still physically growing, maturing, and developing their bodies into the collegiate level.
Bosa was a monster and Vrabel deserves a lot of credit for his development.
Spence is a great pass rusher who played his freshman year at 225. he is still growing and another year in Marotti's program will help him out. He has a lot of potential. Combining his potential, Coach Johnson, Coach Marotti, and still learning the game, he will get better. No doubt he needs to improve against the run but I think he will.
Washington got hurt, outplayed by Bosa, and never really seemed to recover. I think he is better suited to play inside.
As for Bennett, he had a great first half and you are right. Somewhere between Iowa and Purdue is where it tailed off. He needs to finish.
Hale is solid but unspectacular. Schutt missed the first half of the season and idk what to say about him other than he should be developing this spring.
Chris Carter had a good year. He's a big man with space eating ability. Meyer called him out and it appears the light has finally come on for him. He earned some snaps. Conditioning is/was an issue for him but still, he improved.
Marcus is a great player and definitely earned his reps.
It is very hard to get DL to an elite level with young, inexperienced players. Our DL play was not elite, and idk if anyone expected it to be, but it was certainly pretty good. Our run defense ranked 9th in the country. While our pass D was weak, our run D held its own pretty well.
Our DL figures to be 10-13 deep this year. There is talent. I truly expect it to be elite. But the progress that it made was tremendous and it took a big leap. There is a lot here and Coach Johnson has to be very excited when looking at our DL.
It is very convenient that the Title Game and the Primary TV deal expire about the same time.
Exactly. It is big money. I suspect Fox will get the new TV deal and TV revenues have the potential to double for the new deal.
T.C. Williams. That is the HS in Remember the Titans.
Johnson has a lot of talent to work with. We figure to be about 10-13 deep at DL this year.
That is impressive depth.
I was pretty pleased with our DL play this year. I think it really surprised Meyer. Spence had a breakout year and led the team in sacks, 1st/2nd team All-Big 10. Bennett was 2nd team All Big Ten. Bennett really got it together and played great. And Bosa, wow, the future is really bright for him.
Vrabel is a guy that nobody really wanted to see get away. We shall see if he makes it back to OSU. On a side note, I think Vrabel has HC potential in him...
