They did that crap with Matt Leinart and others.  Eventually the media decided that wasn't as popular of an angle.

I'm also pretty sure Tom Herman wishes the MENSA thing would go the f*&@ away.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

The point is our D line is more than capable of winning their battles and blowing up Bama's game plan.  They need to have a gameplan for Bosa/Bennett as much as we need a gameplan for Cooper.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

I think we'll have to mix in some cover 1 with quarters and man-2 to avoid getting run all over.  Need to use a gameplan similar to what we used against Michigan State which involved Doran Grant shadowing Lippett.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Look at Urban's coaching path and try to find the similarities here.  In 2-3 years you will see Herman take a lower-mid level Power 5 job at least.  It is better to take this path than to take the Muschamp path and hang around longer as an elite coordinator and eventually cut your teeth as a HC at a place with ridiculous expectations and no patience.

Someone we haven't heard of that Urban has followed from a distance.  Wouldn't mind getting someone in the Mike Leach tree though to add more passing principles to Urban's spread-to-run repertoire.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

A lot goes into those completion % etc stats.  Pretty sure we weren't running a lot of touch passes when Braxton was the starter.  The passing game was basically deep shots to Devin, a little bit of a screen game and 3rd down passing to Philly Brown.  We did not have a balanced receiver corps like this year.  For an extreme example, look at GaTech's passing game.  It can be hugely effective on very limited attempts because of the run game but the QB is not going to jump off the page as a passer by those type of stats except for maybe yards per attempt.  This year's offense is quite a bit different and it isn't a decision that was made AFTER braxton got hurt.  We would've run this year's offense with Braxton if he stayed healthy.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

You misinterpreted what I said.  I want the players to succeed after being Buckeyes, but when Urban decides which QB he trots out there on a Saturday in the Shoe, NFL potential is not a variable he is considering.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

Didn't read all the comments but I think it goes without saying that OSU would've been in the top 3 of that criteria (Vegas Power rankings) when Barrett was at QB.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

Why do I give 2 shits about whether Braxton (or JT or Cardale) projects to the NFL individually when I am considering who should be the QB of the OSU offense?  Most people don't want to hear this, but Denard Robinson would be pretty f'ing awesome in Urban/Herman's offense.
