In Urban I trust!
I questioned the hiring of Chris Ash and it has worked out even better than I could have hoped for!
I had the same questions in my mind when I first saw the reports of Tim Beck being hired... and now I just say, "In Urban I trust"!
Also, if I ever see another "Fire Fickell" post... He deserves as much credit for the defensive turnaround as we give Ash; maybe more!
I had to put my almost 4 year old son to bed at halftime of the National Championship! He was wearing his #15 Ezekiel Elliot jersey and as I was tucking him in bed he asked me who had just scored a touchdown and I said the Buckeyes and he looked at me and gave a fist-pump and a loud "YESSSSS"!
He then asked me to wake him up after the game to tell him who won... I tried to do just that but all I got was a blank stare and mumbling! He was out and no amount of me celebrating was going to wake him!
Thankfully I had gotten permission to go in to work late, 9am, on Tuesday so I was around when my son woke up and we did get to celebrate before I left for work. I asked him of he wanted to watch the game while he had his morning cup of milk - he usually watches Curious George or Thomas - but he declined and watched Curious George! Later that day my wife called and said that he had just asked to watch the Buckeyes game before his nap!
Sorry this is a long post but I was excited that my 4 year old son was so pumped about the Buckeyes! He will be attending his first Spring Game this year!!!
Go Bucks #1
I read it in his voice with ll the "umms" and "uhhs" thrown in for good measure
This picture is awesome!!!
Just got an alert from B/R that *ichigan AD Dave Brandon will resign
Jalin Marshall - 142 yards and a TD
Final Score: 57 - 24 Buckeyes
Also, Von Bell with a pick 6!!!
I think this speaks volumes for the trust Urban has in Larry Johnson and eye for talent that Larry has! From what I recollect Urban extended a scholarship to Slade based only on Johnson's word!
#8 (Noah Spence) was busy getting held up by the 3 guys from NU that initially missed their blocks on the other 3 DL
I for one was very disappointed in the way we played on both sides of the ball; especially, the play calling in the 4th quarter... RUN HYDE!!!
Our receivers, outside of the secondary, were the most disappointing unit of the day I thought. I can remember at least three drops, there might be more but I remember 3 very clearly, that cost us points or first downs. We need a big physical receiver who can go get us that catch when we need it and hopefully that receiver is Jeff Green.
Lastly, I thought our TE's would feast in the second half... and without any proof to back this claim up IF (lol) they would have kept smashing the middle with Hyde our TE's and slot receiver would have come up large and we would have won.
Again, I have to wonder if it is not a lack of talent, but rather a scheme issue with our defense.
Great job again Ross. Love reading these breakdowns!
We replaced 9 starters on 'D' if I am correct and if all we need to fix is some missed tackles I think we are on the right track; granted the two key people who missed tackles that game were Roby and Shazier!!! C'mon man!!!
"The Buckeyes will have nine practices in six days, and it won’t be enjoyable." -from above article
If Hall has to step in for Hyde for three games I could see Dontre Wilson or Jalin Marshall filling in for Hall at the 'Percy' position
Could this post also include where the top 3-5 teams on this list rank against the national list?
