It was the delayed Saban effect, per SEC fans.
If Pro scouts were watching, Zeke just got a bump of his draft grade. I had NO idea he was the fastest player on the team (now that Doran Grant is gone or even faster than him?)....!!
Urban said that he looked around and not all of the "units" were strong. I assume he meant the DB's or LB's? Or both? And maybe the WR's?? I think he thought highly of Philly Brown, but no so much the other guys.
First world problems are the best ones to have.
I got on this thread because I thought there would be nothing else here but homage to that 6 (?) episode stroke of genius.
Not sure what Sledge Hammer was but I came here to props POLICE SQUAD. People are too young here to remember it was a 6 episode and done thing in 1981 on TV... and then a HIT MOVIE FRANCHISE!!
I want Miller at the H-back role SOOO bad. He's a better runner than a passer. I hope he realizes that, even if his arm gets back to 100%.
You're both right. Tough catch to make, but you GOTTA make it if you're going to start at the Playoff level.
He led with his shoulder that was carrying the ball, and that was why it popped out. You're supposed to protect the ball. And his drop on the tough catch in the Sugar Bowl was the type of catch Devin Smith made every time down the stretch. If Corey can become THAT good at getting the tough, contested grabs, THEN he's our man.
When you're in a cock fight, you've got to keep your head on a swivel.
A limited amount of turnover with some fresh ideas/perspectives is a healthy thing. But, stability is the key to good recruiting in the long run per Jim Tressel and others.
Elliot lost one in the Sugar Bowl. No other RB lost a fumble going back quite a ways.
... "alignment". (I think that's what you are looking for.)
Steve Helwagen is a bad ass.
I'm not saying this offense is loaded, but....
Watching how the defense improved when he came in against MSU (although dinged up) tells you that teams can't pick on him. Physical and sound.
"stellar linebacker corps in Columbus"... a phrase we used to hear every year. If they play as well as the last three games, it might be the strongest unit on the team (other than QB).
Don't take it for granted just because this team has so many returning starters and our coach is great. The same could be said in January of 2003. Enjoy the moment! (And the anticipation of more great things in the near future!)
I'm not tired of being reminded we have had 3 studs at QB in the past two years and all three are on the roster.
I think BM is a more dynamic runner than Marshall or D. Wilson, but can he catch? He certainly should know how to run routs like a QB would want you to run routes, if you know what I mean.
Cardale's gaffs have been ball handling: his Winstonesque drop of the ball when throwing; his trying to put the ball into Eze's bread basket twice; his dropping the snap on the goal line against Bama. All easy fixes with more reps in my opinion. Cardale seems to have ice water in his veins; I don't think he'll look over his shoulder and panic.
Yes, over Collier in the diamond formation... see below!
All three playing together? Sounds like the mythical diamond formation will appear! BM and JT as tailbacks, Cardale as the FB enforcer/lead blocker, and Collier at QB. I'm a genius!
You don't want a howitzer for an arm. A howitzer "lobs" in shells in a high trajectory. :)
