I agree completely. I would like to see Braxton limit his runs to situations when we HAVE to have a big play. Obviously, to be successful we will need him to make big plays. But with the weapons he will have around him this year, I would like to see him distribute first, and second, look for the run as a 3rd option.
First Team DL: Joey Bosa, Michael Bennett, Adolphus Washington, Noah Spence.
This is bone chilling....
Or Beckner? I thought early on OSU was in good shape for both of those 5 stars.
I have always loved the #3. I hope Mike Thomas and all of his swag and trash talk balls out in it this year.
There is life outside of 11W? Damn, I wonder how much I have been missing...
Man, there seems to be more storylines in this spring than I can remember in a long , long time.
Besides the 5 listed above, there are other pretty significant issues. Who will emerge as the starting RB? How will the defense look under Ask? The battle at Middle LB is going to be pretty heated, as both Grant and Kwon seem to believe they are the guy.
Good news indeed. Would love for him to be "solid" the entire time so he can remain in the ears of his talented teammates.
My in laws are Maryland grads, and already have us tickets to the OSU/ MD game! Excited to get to see the best damn fans in the land take over another stadium. I am hoping for a Cal game 2.0 from the fans!
Braxton will be remembered as one of the all time greats. If he can win a Championship in his last game in S&G, there will not be too many names above him on the list of greatest Buckeyes.
Bingo. Same reason I put my faster WR in the slot on NCAA 14. LBs and safteys cant keep up...
Lots of weapons. Only 1 football. Will be very interesting to see how Brax spread's the love, while still getting his.
BuckNuts wants people to continue to think they have to pay for top notch information. A lie that all true 11Ws have already figured out...
If Sparty finds a way to beat Oregon in Eugene, the showdown in Novmeber is going to be incredible.
Unfortunately, that is the same week as the Bama/LSU game, so I am sure that is all we will hear about...
We will never know if playing this season would have changed Mike's mind. I am guessing it wouldn't. It is clear the Mitchell's love tOSU, as they have sent both their sons to Columbus. I am assuming his father's health is the sole reason for his leaving.
As far as the redshirts, I agree I was suprised at how many players redshirted. However, I also know the injury to Mike did set him back as far as his development. I like to pretend that I know everything about football. But sadly, I do not. I want to believe that the coaches will play the best players, no matter what their age. I am going to choose to believe this. If I don't believe it, I will drive myself insane questioning every play call and personel package. With that being said, I think if Mike, or Apple, or whomever, was ready to play, they would play.
As good as Q was most of the night, he missed two FTs in arguably the most crucial time on the game. Momemtum never swung back to the Bucks after that...
Except on ESPN's board, where he will drop since he is a tOSU commit.
Lenzelle needs to have one of his ON nights. I am not expecting much out of Craft on offense tonight, due to the fact he will be using all of his energy guarding Stauskas. Someone else is going to have to step up on the offense side of the ball.
Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how much Pantoni makes? Like Herman said, I promise it is not what he's worth! Glad he's a Buckeye!

Read on twitter where his mom would not even go up to take pictures with him. That is really sad. This kid just got a full ride to college. Even if it wasn't the choice of the parents, they need to be supportive. Hopefully they remember that this kids talents just saved them about 100K over the next couple years...
71 days away!
I'm not going to lie, after this hit I was ready to move him to safety. This kid is a ball player. Simple as that. I love guys who are willing to work their tails off on special teams while they are waiting for their time to shine. Glad to call you a Buckeye EzE!
I went back and forth on this one between EzE and Dontre. Ultimately, I voted for EzE simply due to the fact I think he will have more touches. I think by mid year, he could be the featured back, and from everything I have heard, he is a great receiver coming out of the back field.
Hmmm. I am sure the guy knows what he is doing if Urban offered him a job. Only thing I do not like is the "Co DC" thing again. I feel like that was the major issue with Withers/Fick.
Hopefully it is just a title, and that one coach only, Fick or Ash, it doesn't matter to me, will handle all play calling.
Tyvis Powell has to step up. He plays safety, which puts him in the middle of the field on most snaps. Just due to positioning, he has to become a vocal leader on the field, even more so than Doran.
