Right, since we have trips to that side there should be 3 defenders covering the 3 players to thwart the screen pass and instead there are 2 defenders and then a LB cheated toward the LOS and a safety cheated deep. It feels like that doesn't even need to be a packaged play as that LB is never going to actually cover the slot receiver if there is any run action.
It has mostly been neglected in favor of pounding the ball with Hyde and Braxton.
The basketball-on-grass type of spread offense was Herman's bread-and-butter before arriving if I am not mistaken.
Don't say anything in too bad of taste about him or Herby might get you fired...
Uhhhhhhhhh, yea. Urban uses WAY less coach speak than Tressel.
As much as I love the buckeyes if gambling were legal I would like to bet against your predictions...particularly the 0% chance of 3+ losses.
Yes, he was objectively better than those guys. I think the play calling was more balanced and nuanced when KG was the QB however. Herman/Meyer tended to rely on Braxton left/Braxton right rather than calling a balanced gameplan. Then in the passing game tended to rely on play action bombs to make the defense pay for selling out to stop Braxton's legs rather than a balanced passing attack. The offense therefore became a bit of feast or famine but we feasted more than we went hungry. This year should be more balanced meals but less feasting.
He's basically built exactly the same as Reggie Bush coming out of college.
When you directly quote a reporter that says something "might" happen, what makes you decide to post a thread that says it already happened?
The only problem is we were only hoping for a defense half as good as 2002 yesterday. I think we have to temper our expectations if Braxton is out for the season. We should still be able to make a run at the B1G but the playoff would be a tough ask.
Any music genre that has "dance" in the title is highly likely to be bad. But there's lots of good electronic music pre-auto-tune. That's the kind of stuff that basically ends up on car commercials these days. Like Amon Tobin.
Mack handled Mewhort pretty well too. Luckily I don't think we have another Mack coming for us early in this season. Although Bud Foster's defenses are typically pretty good.
Clemson made us punt more than we wanted to but we still got a good number of big plays once we got guys to the second level.
The former would not have the viral appeal that the ice bucket videos have.
Josh Perry because I have no idea who his backup is going to be. Bennett and Bosa are the best players on D but there's a lot more depth at DL. At other not-so-deep positions we have a position battle so there's a clear backup (whoever loses the battle).
Upvote for reading the entire novella :)
Adolphus committed somewhat awkwardly* as the news of Urban's hiring was propagating through the blogosphere. But yea, technically before it was final.
*Only in that he said he really hopes Urban is the coach when Fickell was still interim HC.
People like Joobs likely have a case based on being outed in the report (nickname known by everyone in the band and many others is worse than an address and social security #) and emotional distress caused by that violation of her right to privacy.
I don't think every member of a department needs to be aware of something for the "department" to be aware of it. And I think that it would be by design for not too many people to know about a secret tradition that is passed on for generations.
Who are the other guys still here that committed pre-Urban and post-Tressel in the 2012 class? I am aware of Elflein and Tyvis Powell for sure. Are there any others that are still with the program?
Of course any reasonable person agrees with what you are saying but if it motivates them to play as a unit and play for each other then I don't care what illogical things they tell themselves.
These two comments remind me of Rod Farva... "how about I photobomb your face for free?"
I'm guessing plays like that are why Linsley got taken in the 5th round instead of an undrafted free agent like many projected.
I'd rather keep the Memphis pick and supplement the roster in the long run with a player on a rookie deal. This team will be in luxury tax territory starting in 2015 so you need to make up for the fact that guys like Miller are reaching the end of their careers and bolster the bench with a combination of rookies and veteran minimum ring chasers.
Thompson will serve as a backup for either Love/Varejao and they can definitely play small ball with Love at the 5. That lineup would be unguardable on one end but struggle a bit defensively.
