@VegasBuckeye04 Not sure how long you are planning on being in town but I would hit up Hot Chicken Takeover on Sunday. Absolutely some of the best chicken I have ever had. It is at North Market.
That is what really made last year's offense so good. During the stretch run, EzE was getting 7-8 yards on first down runs. That opens up the paybook so much more on second and third down. And with Urban's penchant for going for it on fourth really you have 3 plays to get a couple of yards and continue drives.
Well he did say it was a short read and that we wouldn't be gone long.
I keep being optimistic on the offense. I think this is the week they hit 50. Prediction: 52-10. EzE goes off again for 200+ in 3 quarters of work.
I think its a mix of things. First, I think Cardale is a "pass first" QB and always has been. It is great at times as he has the arm strength to hit a deep bomb without his lower body (i.e. not being on the run). Second, as you said, it takes him a bit longer to get going. He maybe mobile but he isn't shifty. Thus, it is easier for a defensive lineman to run him down.
As much as I like Cardale (and I like JT too) I think he often wants the 10+ yard play and struggles to settle with the 3-4 yard scramble. I think if he can better understand the idea of three easy yards and move to the next play the offense will flow a little better.
I think what he is saying is that right now its an either/or situation. Either Cardale is throwing the ball or Zeke is running it. The offense works best when the QB at least can run a draw or similar play to keep the LBs and Safeties honest. Right now, the second Cardale drops back everyone knows its a pass and there is no threat of a draw or scramble. Likewise the second Zeke looks like a run everyone is crashing down. The O needs to get things a little more fluid to keep the defense off guard.
I mean with compound interest I am sure. But he is still likely one of the first 5 QBs taken in the draft.
When people complain that OSU's kicker doesn't have a strong enough leg to get a touchback.
People who complain anytime the other team gains some positive yards. Its going to happen. That is the point of an offense.
Intentional grounding always bothers me. Specifically when the receiver and the wide out are not on the same page. The receiver runs an 8 yard curl route and the QB throws it deep. It almost always happens when there is a blitz and it is to be a hot route. That should be intentional grounding but it is never called.
Why doesn't Ohio State throw a screen pass?
1 Dollar Bob.
Wait? You're saying UGA fans are worse than Roll Damn Tide?
Weather might be a bit of a factor. 38-13.
I understand the comparison but I think OSU is actually very different. OSU seems to have another gear they can turn to when they want. I think complacency is a bit of a problem when everyone is saying they should blow out a team. Go back and watch the first and third quarter of VaTech. That OSU was scary good against a pretty good defense. I don't think FSU could really turn it up against better competition.
Claims he drives a Buick and is young enough to understand the internet? OP doesn't check out.
I don't mind the .5 here like I usually would. I see WMU having to settle for a field goal whereas Urban will push for TDs. Field goals are the .5 saviors.
I believe this will make him 0-6 against OSU. He coached at Eastern Michigan roughly 2010-11 when they played OSU if I am not mistaken.
Now we wait and see who gets more upvotes.
Yes. Take the over.
You have to post this right before lunch? Sounds fantastic 3M.
There is now a World of Beer on campus at the Gateway. A bit of a walk to the 'Shoe but overall its not a bad spot.
Even better is to jump on COTA. Runs right down High St. and is only a couple bucks. Uber sometimes upcharges its fees during games.
McElwain had to pay 2 million on top of the 5 million from Florida. Source
