What the heck is Curtis Samuel doing in that video lol
Yea, I don't care how loaded the roster is, starters START for a reason. The possibility of switching out Jalin Marshall for a 2 stringer makes me nervous
This was the 2014 preview, before his second shoulder injury. Scroll down to "Opposing coache's take". Narduzzi's comment is backhanded but it's certainly not without evidence or concurrence.
They win a lot of games but they have a lot of Clemson in them (loads of NFL caliber talent, lose one or 2 games they shudnt lose or practically run the table and lose to Florida in division or Bama in conf title).
I mean, u'd think with Florida being down, UGA would have stepped up but they've let Missouri steal the division.
Last yr they gave up 35 points to Florida. That team was awful all yr on offense.
Richt is a good recruiter but I still don't get the feeling he's locked down his state and he doesn't win certain games u must win.
Still salty at the football gods for not pairing TP with Urbz at tOSU. What a missed opportunity for the record books....
My word choice is poor there. I'm not implying that Bama is still better but lost, I can conclude that the Bucks were better. I just remember the feeling early in the game, when Henry seemed to be able to run through the defense for big chunks, that I felt like "they cant stop thos guy, how r they gonna win?"
then later on, they kept dropping back and while Cooper worried me, Sims didn't lolll
Bucks still gave up 35 points, that defense wasn't lock tight by any stretch. But situationally, they came up big and thats enuff.
I've been saying this for months. The number one reason Bucks were able to get over on Bama is cuz Kiffin got away from Henry/Yeldon and put the ball in Sims hands too much.
They're about to give out new rings to the 1970 team during the Hawaii game week (so I've heard).
I hope those reports about Braxton's pocket skills are true, because I have a hard time seeing him beat Bama without them respecting his arm.
Also, I was concerned with his statement about not having full rotation of the arm yet. How has he been cleared 100% but his arm is still funky? Would he lie about that?
*takes off paper bag* Yeah, we in this biiiiih #Knickstape *puts bag back on* lollll
Born in Brooklyn. As a result I might be Curtis Samuel's biggest fan (other than his parents lolll)
My dad played at OSU, so I was raised a Buckeye fan. But I chose to don the Orange *deep sigh*
I doubt its a minority. If i had to guess, the fan base is split 50-40-10/Cardale-JT-Brax, simply cuz Cardale has been healthy and has a stronger arm. But we all saw what happened last yr: an adequately mobile Buckeye QB was finally poised and accurate in the pocket from early in his career, especially on third down. I have no shame in saying JT is the best of the three and unless Cardale shows he's consistent with his accuracy, he should start.
He can't just say they weren't good enough? Smh. What is the problem with admitting that the other team was inherently better on that day?
While I agree with this--and the numbers back it up--this is the wrong place to poo-poo Braxton's announcement. Just be happy he feels in shape and confident he can compete.
True. What worries me is if they start slow and have to play further into the third than they'd like? I mean Hawaii is trash but we've seen teams who had no business winning hang around with superior talent. That's the first trap of the yr IMO.
with all that said, I can't wait to see Collier get some burn loll
Am I the only one worried that there's only 5 days btwn the Va Tech and Hawaii game?
I think 7 of those points were on a pick 6 but still, I agree. Va Tech was 9 of 17 on third down and in all 4 of their red zone chances, they came away with TDs. Neither of those things can happen again. Michael Brewer isn't that good and the Buckeye D needs to reinforce that.
Only thing that concerns me is the game is in Blacksburg and once again, Va Tech will have all offseason to prepare. They will have the postseason tapes picked apart.
Bucks win big if Bosa & Co. do what they're supposed to do and the O-line/Zeke does what its supposed to do.
I dunno bruh...Baugh's high school tapes show him running away from dudes AND playing defensive end as a junior (he actually has a pick 6 from that position and basically gallops into the end zone). We're now 2 yrs down the road, with him in this weight training program? With this staff? During his recruiting, there's no doubt they saw him and said "Hernandez" (on the field I mean).
Now I don't know if he can block like Vannett. And Vannett can run a bit too. But not like Baugh.
No plan is exaggerating, apologies. But I always felt like Tressel's staff didn't get the max production out of him that they should have.
I always had lukewarm feelings about Tressel and they officially became room temp when I realized he had no consistent good plan for TP's development and didn't like putting the dagger in teams. When tOSU kneeled at the 5 yard line on Miami a couple years back, I was like "Finish them!" Wasn't gonna happen with Tressel.
The first time I said to myself "oh, he's special" was during the Cincy game. They had driven inside the 30, up....15 I think? And normally, that's a comfortable lead against anyone but Cincy had shown they could score quick thru the air. And there were two consecutive penalties, like a delay and a false start. And before u knew it, it's 3rd and 14 at like the 35 yr line. And I felt the drive stalling and a field goal or pooch punt coming. But JT dropped back and just picked out Devin and hit him in the end zone with a strike.
I'm sorry but if that's Braxton out there, he scrambles around and sails a ball over somebody's head and they don't convert. JT's ability to keep drives going with his arm is something Ohio State really hasn't had....well, maybe ever?
I trust Urban in this decision. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't partial to JT starting this season.
i know it's hard to believe but not all elite athletes want to be Buckeyes. And that's OK. I'd rather a great athlete make a decision he is comfortable with and works for he and his family then come to tOSU to make us homers happy. And yes, godforbid, some kids feel that TTUN fits them better. It happens, we'll all live.
He visited just to kick the tires. Nothing more. I expect him to go to Bama like pretty much every top DT Has in recent memory.
Thank you. This whole "JT never beat Braxton for the job" talk is nonsense because nothing JT would do in practice would unseat Miller anyway. The job wasn't available. But in game, we can see th offense runs better when JT or Cardale is starting. And no, it's not because of more weapons, it's because they are more accurate and poised in the pocket. I really don't understand why there's any debate.
Yea, this is the one position that I wish Meyer could make a splash at. Just for once I want one of these Julio Jones type guys to commit to OSU. I mean, I know its tough cuz they're not in the south where almost all of those guys come from but ffs, can OSU get one?
Whatever bruh. We all watched that game, we know who won the Sugar Bowl in 2011. It certainly wasn't Arkansas.
