Haha. This was my first thought as well before seeing who the poster was

I definitely recognize odeez as posting some Stark County high school football info in the past.

I read this as something related to the Kyrie Irving incident. Was LeCharles initially diagnosed with tendinitis and then played through it and was more seriously injured when he had the ACL injury?? I do know about the staph infection and how that ended his career, I'm solely speaking of the tendinitis/Irving connection.

He's a rhythm shooter and is bound to figure it out at some point. I love that he's not out there chucking and continues to run the offense, as well as be a hound on defense and intercept passing lanes. I never knew he could be this type of player before we traded for him.

It doesn't really suck to lose him or Kraemer, but it sucks to lose him AND Kraemer. You always want to keep Ohio's top players in Ohio, but you win some and you lose some. Hate to lose two of the best in the state

Our 247 composite ranking is 6th, but, you know, I don't want to spoil your hot take. 6th, 7th, whatever we are, it's still a great class. Too many 3*s to be among the top 5 but the staff really believes they found some sleepers and they've shown the ability to develop them so let's not get too caught up in class ranking.

I need to see It's a Wonderful Life as a lot of people have that high up there.

It's an embarrassment of riches, really, but I wouldn't be disappointed to see Wilson take more direct handoffs out of the backfield as our third RB now that Smith has been dismissed. Marshall is doing more out of the plays we saw Dontre excel in last season (sweeps, screens, etc.) but Dontre is doing pretty well as an intermediate receiver. I can think of at least two plays were Dontre was wide open but Barrett missed him. He's just a player that has to get the ball at least 7-10 times a game. Unfortunately we have at least 5 of those players in Elliott, Samuel, Marshall, Thomas, and Dontre.

Interesting that he would switch to Kansas- thought this was an OSU, Mizzou, Oklahoma battle.. Perhaps he isn't done shopping but wanted to make sure he had somewhere to land. Good luck Josh. 

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Just a joke.. Some guy got on Bosa on Twitter a couple weeks ago for playing video games. Said he wasn't as committed as JJ Watt. I know Bosa is a Fifa guy 

Comment 23 Sep 2014

Would JJ Watt be playing FIFA?

Comment 22 Sep 2014

I don't want to sleep on Tyquan Lewis or Jalyn Holmes, but Josh Sweat would have an opportunity to start as a freshman at some point with Noah Spence possibly (likely IMO) leaving at the end of the year for the NFL. With the success of Bosa most recently and also Adolphus and Spence as Freshmen perhaps we have more of a shot than the experts think. Plus Larry Johnson's track record has to be appealing. 

Comment 10 Sep 2014

Sure is a lot of negative recruiting in here. I guess that's just the way it is. Our school has a lot to offer- great coaching staff, wins, tradition, tremendous support, and a need for a power back. I certainly hope our school is saying that rather than "the fans don't care about football at Kentucky."


Comment 08 Sep 2014

It's hard to fault Urban and co for not being prepared to see something they apparently had never seen before, but certainly they failed to adjust appropriately. 

While they may not have seen this specific defensive scheme, teams have successfully thwarted our spread option offense by loading the box and penetrating the backfield in the past so it's not like it should be all that unexpected- especially moving forward after we were "exposed a little bit." In each scenario the staff has failed to appropriately adapt and force the defense to change its scheme. 

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I'd love to see you take a look at Ohio State's blitzes. In comparison to VaTech it appeared that our blitzes were almost always met with a blocker and that our linebackers are ineffective zone blitzers. We penetrating and rush blitz very well but I noticed a lot of ineffectiveness blitzing the pass. 

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I agree with everything you wrote.. The separation was there, which is actually a compliment to our receivers considering that they were going against fantastic corners and a center-field safety. The drops were inexcusable, especially from our "impact player" Corey Smith. (Brief side note, did anyone else roll their eyes when Smith was listed as one of OSU's two impact players when we first went out on offense?? Guy hadn't even caught a pass yet at OSU)

I think in general people have to settle down on the position coaches. I think the coordinators struggled but the skill players were often in a position to make a play but failed to do so. Barrett himself relied too heavily on the long ball and never used his check-down receiver, which is supposed to be your blitz protection. Aside from some players who made glaring mistakes, I think this loss rests squarely on Herman's inept playcalling (relied too heavily on deep ball rather than slants, swings, and screens against a zero man coverage) and Ash's third-down soft zone defense.
