Hey we fixed the pass defense!! Only gave up 20 yards in this game
Agreed. A guy from Texas may not have fully understood what The Game means....I think he probably understands that now. And is coming with a vengeance.
Is that Indianola in Clintonville?
The fact that, as band director, he participated in/knew many of these things were going on is why he needed to be fired.
But in reality, a lot of these things, sexual gestures, innuendos, nicknames, sound like typical college behavior.
Timmons/Baker/Anzalone where are you?!!?
I'll take 2013:
Joey Bosa, Dontre Wilson, Vonn Bell are guys who have already made impacts on OSU football
EZE, Cameron Burrows, Darron Lee, Chris Worley, Eli Apple, Tyquan Lewis are all soon-to-be starters or are fighting in the 2-deep
Jalin Marshall, Billy Price, Michael Hill, Gareon Conley, JT Barrett are guys who I fully expect to make noise in a year or two (along with a few others I did not name)
Kind of looks like Rich Rod
Haha I agree. Gives a new meaning to a 3rd (or 4th) leg
Sure. ADV was brought in to be a shooter who can stretch the floor. They are both in the 6'5-6'6 range, seemingly moderate athleticism.
For the record, I have not downvoted you.
This is sad news. I saw him as the next Jon Diebler: a guy who stayed for four years, got better every single year, eventually turning into such a threat that we couldn't take him off the floor.
I'd give him about a 10 on the "Hot or Not" app
Completely agree. Oddly enough, this may have been one of our better games.
The closest I've ever been to not watching a remainder of a Buckeye's game... glad I stuck it out for some reason
For as much as Amir Williams gets ragged on, I don't think he's the main problem on this bball team.
AW came in as a 5 Star McDonald's All-American, which typically means fans expect you to be a star right away. He was anything but a star, he was extremely raw. Having watched just about every Buckeye basketball game over his career, his improvement from year one has been huge! He's actually becoming one of my favorite players, mostly because he is showing tremendous emotion this year, which was severely lacking.
The statistics back that up as well
Against teams that were ranked when they played the Buckeyes, here are some stats:
Marquette - 2-2 FG, 3 rebounds, 5 blocks, 4 points
Michigan State - 3-3 FG, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks, 8 points
Iowa - 4-7 FG, 6 rebounds, no blocks, 11 points
Wisconsin - 3-6 FG, 6 rebounds, 1 blocks, 9 points
Iowa - 5-6 FG, no rebounds, 1 block, 12 points
Michigan - 3-4 FG, 7 rebounds, 1 blocks, 7 points
I think your anger is misplaced, because AW does contribute to the team. Your anger should be directed towards the fact that, despite being in a game where EVERYTHING was called as a foul, the Buckeyes 1) did not give the ball to Ross 2) did not even drive to the basket
Under player profiles for the combine, at nfl.com/combine, under Lewan's weakness is this gem:
Quirky personality that can be easily misunderstood.
Appreciate it. I thought there would be a page with only Buckshots.
I'm comfortable with whatever the NCAA rules on new apps (or other technology) based on how Mark Pantoni does such a great job of keeping up to date with that sort of thing. If anything, it probably benefits us. Heck, he's probably hosting seminars on "how to properly snapchat" or "how to hashtag" for the coaches.
For as much as people still like to say that Amir is a bust or terrible, there is a huge difference between AW from this year and last, mostly in terms of energy and aggression.
Quick question... how do I access older Buckshots? I can see the few on the right side of the page, but don't see anywhere to check back on older ones
I didn't check, but I'm just hoping every other team we play isn't coming off of a BYE week like last season...
Maybe I'm optimistic to a fault, but I'm not buying it.
Seems like Thad's team has gone into a slump, just like this one, around this time every year. Recall last year where we couldn't score for shits and giggles until our defense suddenly went on an absolute tear.
This is an awesome article!! I'm glad to see there are others who can look past the defense's problems and be proud of what they did accomplish
