How has Chef-O-Nette in UA not been mentioned?  Its been there for over 50 years and is a great place!

Comment 23 Apr 2013

I think the idea is that teams are no longer appealing to the B1G, not that they can't afford to leave.  Sure we could maybe bring GT on board, and pay their $10M a year they lose from TV revenue.  But I believe the rights to broadcasting their home games would remain with the ACC.  Therefore, those games would never be on TV, thus not increasing the TV market of the B1G, and removing any value they would have had to the B1G until 2028 after their deal with ESPN ends.

Duron wasn't around for the low parts of Chris' life.  Some people have to learn life lessons on their own.  I question what Chris has done to try and help steer Duron in the right direction.  I don't see where him going to Bama was ever a good idea.  I would think that a kid with Duron's problems, combined with a Dad who had Chris' life experiences, they might have found a better landing place.  Someplace where players don't run the show, but he could still develop, get exposure, and grow as a human being.

All that being said, maybe Chris hasn't supported all his decisions like Bama and has realized that Duron needs to learn on his own.  I don't know.

James seems like a really good kid, I would love to see him in Scarlet and Gray.  I think he could make an immediate impact.

Best of luck to him wherever he ends up!

I understand the "YYYYYYEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS" during sex, but the "GO BUCKS" I would question a little.

Great insight as always Ross.  Your breakdowns have become my favorite part of 11W, without question. 

Not sure if you covered the punt due to my question or not, but thank you either way.  That is the exact info I was looking for, figured there might be more to the story then just missed assignments.

 

Comment 01 Nov 2012

Yes, I agree that Boren missed his assignment on that specific play.  What I am more curious about is the overall cause of all of these punts being blocked.  On these blocked punts, are there more guys getting through then we can block and we need to narrow our splits, or is everyone of these blocked punts a missed assignment?  If its a missed assignment, has it been Boren every time?  If our splits are causing the problem, why not narrow them down and force teams to try and block punts using the outside rushers?  Make them run further to get to the punter.

Comment 01 Nov 2012

Great read as always Ross.  Any word on the possible pregame video breakdown of what to expect that I mentioned a few weeks ago?  I would still watch it weekly!  Maybe something you guys could test prior to The Game, see the reaction before next year.

Any chance you will be doing a Special Teams Breakdown?  I know special teams is a bit less involved, however I would like to know what teams are doing to block these punts so consistently.  Is this the same problem each week, or are different issues showing up from week to week on the punt team?

Comment 01 Nov 2012

I am curious about that too.  Is that a designed play where Braxton follows the back, or is that a decision he is making?  That play looked like it could have gone the other way with a speed option for even more yards.

I live in Cincinnati and don't get any of the great pre-game shows down here.  I would spend my early Saturday mornings watching your pre-game breakdowns.  In addition, I can totally see Ramzy doing a Kenny Mayne style story...makes me laugh thinking about it.  Alex with a weekly recruiting breakdown with maybe interview audio layered over a highlight film.  I think there are endless possibilities here, you guys don't have a weakness. 

In general, you guys are all so knowledgeable in your specific areas of focus and you all are very good at getting your point across.  It would be the first must watch stream for me, I bet Hail would even watch!

Comment 02 Oct 2012

Thank you once again for the knowledge.  You should host a pre-game, what to expect show that you could stream on this site.  Nothing too long, only 5 minutes or so.  Focus on specific plays on both sides of the ball and key matchups.  I bet many of us would watch it and it is something you could get sponsored.

Comment 02 Oct 2012

Great piece, always enjoy reading your work Ramzy! 

Comment 01 Oct 2012

I believe Corey Brown wanted to be a running back when he came to OSU.  He has not shown any great skills running after the catch.  I would expect someone who wanted to be a RB break an arm tackle by a corner every now and then.

Comment 20 Aug 2012

I am guessing this comment is directed at Hail?  It seems as if you are telling all Buckeye fans to prepare for a loss in 96 days.  Next time use the reply button in the bottom right corner of his comment. 

Comment 03 Aug 2012

I think most people are thinking that way because of the new system that fits his abilities.  Someone could make the same argument about Stoneburner, what are his career numbers?  Every year that he has been at OSU was going to be a breakout season, but it hasn't come yet.  People have different expectations because of the new system, and I think some players will thrive because of the new system (Braxton, Hall, and Stoneburner included).
