Happy Jamarco would smile wide seeing you lined up across from him.
Are people grading on a curve based on expectations? This is America. How do you give it anything other than A...
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.
In other words, the SEC has beaten the Big Ten in a lot of Citrus/Outback type bowls.
You are saying it is an unwritten rule to not call plays that intentionally violate written rules? Is this unwritten rule written down anywhere?
How could some arbitrary star ranking hurt them on the field?
BGSUBucksFan posting this thread: good or bad?
Same order as the Heisman voting: Mariota, Boykin, Barrett.
Gotta love when organizations redefine words.
Well, which sources are part of that consensus? Because ESPN.com left him off of their first (and only) team.
Probably similar to when they were setting records with Sumlin and Broyles as their coach.
It's not the money that Houston is paying him as much as the opportunity to use Houston as a launching point for his career.
as another poster told me once:
They are a big play driven offense. If we keep them in front of us along with pressuring Sims we should have a good chance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
2nd team all big ten, but 1st team all american (by CBS). Interesting, I think CBS got it right.
Sounds like some people need there to be sarcasm font on twitter.
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.
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.
