I was impressed with Keandre's highlights. There is a lot to like about him. I do think he needs a year under Mick before he sees playing time at LB.
Remember, We missed out on a shot at a National Title over players trading their own stuff for Tats. Louisville is only going to miss the tourney for one year??? What a total crock of sh*t!!!
The only thing I don't like about this site is all of the forum snobs. Almost every day I see two or three people shi**ing all over someone else's forum topic. If your don't like it don't read it. No reason to act like a pompous jerk about it.
I notice those same B10 teams have no problem cashing those huge TV and bowl checks.
The reason why many WWE stars died young is because they were stacking cycles of steroids and using pain killers. Using HGH is a completely different animal. HGH doesn't have the side effects like juice. The only side effect I've ever heard of is numbness is the hands but that usually only occurs if you use 8AU's a day or more. The biggest downside to HGH is that it is super expensive. If it was cheap there wouldn't be much of a market for steroids. I don't see why the NFL doesn't allow injured players to use HGH, it really helps in the healing process. Just by looking at Peyton I find it hard to believe he used it.
I don't get why Apple or Powell would go pro. Right now Apple is maybe a 4th or 5th rounder and I don't think Powell would get drafted at all. With another year I could see Apple moving up into the 2nd round. Powell still needs a lot of work. He seems like a great kid but he gave up a lot of big plays due to horrible angles and poor tackling. I hope they both decide to stay.
I think sometimes it's easier to pedal hope and change to recruits. New coaches promise kids the chance to lay the foundation of something "historic". I've seen huge recruiting spikes many times at schools that hire high profile coaches. It happened with OSU. It even happened with Hoke. The question is can the coach deliver. We've seen by year three that Urban can and now he can sell reality instead of a vision. Harbaugh may too but I wouldn't be surprised if he has major success by year three that he jumps ship to the NFL. Don't think for a second it doesn't bother him that his brother has won a Super Bowl and he didn't. I'm not too worried about Michigans class because Urban has been landing top 5 classes for going on 5 years and shows no sign of slowing down. Even with their class there will still be a large talent gap between OSU and UM.
It's not so much that he's coming back for a degree. If he shows that he can excel at Center as well as guard he could be a 1st or 2nd rounder the following year.
Just wait until Gary picks Michigan. I don't understand why the DT recruiting has been so bad the last 2 years. Why can't Urban or Larry Johnson get some of these big time DTs? They can land 5 and 4 star DE's like nobody's business but man are they struggling at DT.
A Bowl game against Houston is a no win situation. They'll get zero credit for winning and will get crushed if they lose. I want no part of that game.
They were emotional about their last game in Columbus. There are plenty of things to be concerned about but this isn't one of them. Your making a mountain out of a mole hill.
Did you think those two were coming back? Neither did anyone else. They just stated the obvious and they both seemed pretty somber that it was their last game at The Shoe. Also, didn't Bosa get honored as a Senior today? That pretty much says he's gone too. Nobody had a problem with that so why give Zeke and Cardale grief about it.
Who cares if Zeke and Cardale announced they were leaving? Did anyone really think they were coming back? And fans that paid a shit load of money for those tickets had a right to boo that play calling. They weren't booing the team. That was a complete disaster of a coaching job by the OC's and I don't have a problem with fans being upset about it.
The QB runs on 3rd and long were the worst.
Beck was given the keys to a Lambo and he drove it like an old Bubba on a Sunday joy ride. If you can't move the ball with 3 WRs, a TE and a RB that will all be in the NFL then you shouldn't be a OC. Total dogshit play calling
Realistically we'll be lucky to land one of those guys. The kid from Louisiana is a pipe dream. Jackson seems like our best bet but I could see Urban using his magic and landing the other Lawrence. I hope Urban takes over their recruiting personally because we are in dire need for some elite DT's next year
Conley played his best game as a Buckeye. Lattimore seems to be gaining confidence and also had a good game. Bosa is a beast. At one point he had four guys blocking him. Thomas and Braxton keep rising their draft stock every week. The O line played an exceptional game. As a team they looked very disciplined on both sides of the ball. Great team win
Tyvis needs to practice taking better angles. He got torched for the second week in a row because he took a god awful angle on run support.
I think staff members here know exactly what is going on but are choosing not to talk about it out of respect for Webb, his family and the university. I respect how 11w handle their business, they realize that being first to report info isn't always the most important thing. Reporting unfounded and incomplete info has never been 11w style. If that's what you're looking for check out Bucknuts. I fully expect a complete detailed article once everything is settled but until then trust in the 11w staff.
I think Beck was hired for his recruiting connections in Texas. Herman was our Texas guy and when he left I think Urban wanted to keep that pipeline going. I think it's pretty obvious that Beck was a downgrade but who else was out there at the time?
So basically you are keeping a lid on it in order to keep the trust from players/ sources you have earned over the years. Pretty rare these days. Perhaps someone at Bucknuts will leak it soon since they usually have diarrhea of the mouth when it comes to keeping secrets.
Imagine all three of those guys in on a third down passing situation. Slide Nick inside on the same side as Cooper. Someone is getting that sack.
I think it helps. Imagine Braxton in the slot, JT motions him in the backfield to line up next to Zeke. Who are they going to defend? They have to respect the hand off to Braxton which means they can't key in on Zeke. I think it will open up the field for Zeke and give him a chance to break a few extra 85 yarders. The possibilities are endless with the amount of dynamic play makers that will be on the field at the same time. It is mind blowing to think that this years offense is going to probably put up better numbers than last year.
Who actually thinks Zeke will have to pay that?
From day one I felt like the program was based on having the attitude that everything was a competition, you worked your ass off to earn time and you hit the books as hard as you hit the weights. If that is indeed the case I guess it's easy to figure out why they parted ways
