On paper, very close game.
They are going to stack the los and blitz. I'ts what they do. Herman needs to have a gameplan that includes quick throws to boost JT's confidence and run at a very high tempo. The oline needs to have MUCH better pass protection to give JT time to get some passes off or this is going to be a long day.
Pass rush is key. I have not been impressed with our defensive line. And those Vtech third downs were against our blitz packages. I was screaming at the tv to STOP blitzing. Let's hope our D line puts it all together and make gunner look like a deer in headlights
or worst case...d) all of the above. Sounds like it might be a consistency issue, Somebody needs to step up and TAKE the spot
Yep...that sucks....was really hoping this would be settled by now.
I'm hoping we have settled on a starting 5 for the Oline. Tough to make progress in communication skills when the players are changing. I trust in warinner and hope guys have stepped up and taken those spots over the bye week.
Agreed. Need to harass all game long. Maybe we see some stunts this week? Something other than blitzing LB up the middle.
Agreed. No way he goes mid season. Could easily happen after 11/29 though, bowl game or not.
A good assessment. His loyalty to the Oline coach is gonna get him fired. How could that guy NOT lose his job after last year? Doesn;t appear any better this year either.
Couldn't of said it better! Hopefully we improve weekly, especially in the trenches.
Right now, we're still switching players on the O line. not good. and the Dline looks over rated, especially with spence gone. So while it may be fun to be abusing tsun, we have by no means looked the part of a conference champion. This Saturday should show us more. Hopefully we have continued to improve over the bye week. All that being said, it's all about wins. If Hoke losses both the rivalry games, he's gone.
If you watched the show, the key was talent wise, as in 4 and 5 star recruits. If the coaches due their job the line could be very good. Talent wise, their Oline was up there last year, just no coaching.
I hope he is in cali to work with GW. The blog report above is from a week ago and the workout was in columbus. Regardless, what's the old saying? Nothing good happens after midnight?
OK, wimbush IS disappointing. And who cares about the top 15 list. But I am starting to get a little nervous. Spring and summer recruiting is huge. If we still have 2 recruits in 30-45 days, I will be officially nervous. Many kids want this over with before fall. Many have said we have 9 mos. left, which we do. But how many do you really think we are gonna flip. And class leadership IS important. We need some commits to make us all feel a little better. Bring on the camps and let's get some kids in this class already!
I love my buckeyes...but, a new offensive line (probably with a center the rest have not played a down with), a defense that has yet to play a down with 2 new coaches and new scheme, no solidified backup qb( how many games would we have lost last year without kenny g), new kicker, new running back, and a starting qb that missed the spring (progressions? accuracy?). Yes, they have the talent to overcome those questions, but top ten? These are young/inexperienced players that will need to gell quickly (navy, V tech) to have a chance at making the first playoff.
Bring it on! Anyone that wants to make it to the college level is probably doing work arounds already. Going to camps, etc. My grandaughter plays in club volleyball, which is available pretty much year round, to better her skills. No good reason not to have spring football.
