Braxton is all Buckeye. I knew he would come back next year. Get yourself right young man. You will be kicking a$$ again soon enough.

Meanwhile, let's not count ourselves out just yet. They are not just handing out scholarships to anyone to play quarterback at Ohio State. J.T. just might have a little something to show everyone this year. ;-)

I am interested to see how Herman calls games this year. Will he go into a conservative shell? Or will he trust his players to make plays?

I can understand why he would ride Miller and Hyde last year due to their exceptional ability, but to become a complete team we need to use all of the weapons available. The  play calling was a bit predictable and conservative.

You and me both...

Hyde shot the gap on the lead block on that play and put his man on his a$$. 

There is no doubt in my mind that if Hyde was carrying the ball on that play he would have got a first down. He would have hit the hole with authority instead of trying to run laterally. 

I am still scratching my head as to why Herman would call a edge play to the short side of the field. Miller could have outran his man if he had enough room.

Sam Wyche's no-huddle offense, the origins of Bill Walsh's west-coast offense, and the zone-blitz out of Dick Lebeau's 3-4 defense were created in Cincinnati.

Unfortunately those things were used to win Super Bowls elsewhere.

Agree. Let EZE heal up and get back to 100%. There is no reason to jeopardize his season. There are plenty of guys that can step in and carry the load.

Losing El Guapo hurts, but it may not turn out to be a bad thing if it forces them to spread the ball around. That would be my only complaint about Herman's play calling last year. But if you have a stud like Hyde I can see why Herman called games the way he did.

Also I am curious to know how the 5* Dunn is reacting to being passed up by the younger 4* EZE.

No one hates you man. Don't be dramatic. 

As far as long-winded comments, if I see a comment that is extremely long I just scroll right passed it. There are so many other people posting that I simply don't have time to read something that long. I don't drag a laptop around with me, so I access this site and comment from my phone.

I appreciate comments that are short and straight to the point. The absolute opposite of this one. ;-)

Yep... Sad to say that a Michigan man wasn't as dumb as Marvin Lewis to pass him up. That says a lot about Mavin Lewis who is still trying to figure out how to win a playoff game after 11 years while Harbaugh has already been to a Super Bowl. Genius at work....
