I wonder how much they will screw it up this year?
They apparently don't think throwing the ball in today's NFL is a priority. I get a sense they are building the team in the image of Rex Ryan's Jets teams in the past few years. Pettine is a disciple of Ryan's and he's comfortable with that style of team. All physical defense and running. Passing doesn't matter. Not the best team to model yourself after but puts the coach in a comfort zone.
Obviously, this is Meyer's fault. Meyer recruited him for Ohio State and didn't set him straight!
This is so common nowadays. These alpha males who have been treated like gods, cover abuses up in the name of the team. Look at Florida St. and Michigan. Hell, look at Stubenville high school. It's messed up. I hope it's not true.
Good and bad, long way to go. Good the defensive system, they look faster. They are reacting instead of overthinking. Bad, offensive line and back up QBs but that's expected. Good reps.
No injuries which is huge. Thomas looked good, Cory smith as well. McMillion is going to be a good one for sure. I expect him to play a lot. All in all a good day to be a Buckeye
I agree, I thought Barret looked better as well. That being said they both have a long way to go.
Is that good that a student beat our footballers?
Do you think they are using the TE so much to show Chris Clark that he can be a valuable weapon in our offense?
Thomas early leader for the Bam Childress award? He has Velcro hands though, I'm excited about his future!
Barret settling in right now
Defense isn't giving up run after catch. It's amazing what happens when you press.
We do need a qb
Johnson is a great punter. Tressel would have loved him! Haha
Press coverage is exciting to see
The Oline needs to gel soon
I love Ohio St. Just sayin
I just don't have that great of a feeling for this class. I know it's early and will pick up but there seems to be a lack of cohesivenous. No real leader. All it takes is 1 guy to do that. I figure it will be an ok class, somewhere between 10-15 rank. That's fine since the last 3 classes have been top 5. It will probably be a 1 year thing once people see how things unfold on the field.
Franklin is no joke, and he's much more accomplished the Hoke in my opinion. To win and be bowl eligible at Vandy in the SEC is far better then playing in bowls at San Diego St. The B1G East is going to be ligit sans Maryland and Rutgers.
I bet he goes to the state up north. That offense fits his skill set better. They were in the championship game last year and have a legit shot this year. His players seem to develop and put up good numbers. Their offense is more "fun" and a lot more flashy. That's what teen kids like now days, short attention span and flashy things.
i just threw up in my mouth a little bit. I friggin hate that school. Don't be like those people up there, kid. Arrogant for no reason. Not as good as they think they are. Go Buckeyes
These t shirt looks by Adidas are just flat stupid! I hate them. I didn't like playing with a t shirt, I'm sure there are kids that don't like the t shirt feel. Adidas is trying toooo hard! Thank god OSU is a nike school. Most of there uniforms are decent looking. Adidas has a "catching up with the Jones'" type feel to them.
I just have a weird feeling about this class. Seems to be lacking something.. I don't know... Leadership? Cohesion? It sure will rank high by the end, I don't feel a top 5 class, I'm thinking 10-12ish, which is damn fine. A depth filler class.
Wow..no threes hahahah
Why can't a player just admit that this team just can't shoot in the post game interviews? There's some unwritten rule, but I think it would be refreshing instead of the watered down stuff they give
They aren't going to make a 3. It's ok Indiana is a top 10 team....oh wait...they suck to and are kick our butts
Is it me or does it always seem our offense goes at half speed or walk through pace? Do we every run guys hard and come off screens with authority? A nice solid C cut in the paint. And our screens are weak, we don't hit anybody and set solid screens.
also, who's the strength coach for ball? Our guys have no definition in their arms, I know u don't want them yoked up like football but come on?
Not to mention what Addidas has done to basketball jerseys everywhere! Those stupid t shirt uniforms, they look so dumb. And some of those special ones for the NCAA tourney last year? Really?
