Who is going to match up with Arizona's 7 footer? Arizona might get 50 offensive rebounds this game.
The sooner they lose, the sooner I don't ever have see Amir and Trey play another minute of basketball. Colossal disappointments, both of them on the court. Not sure what Matta saw in either of them, except size. Seems like you have to either recruit an entire team of one and dones like Kentucky every year, or go out and get kids with the desire to develop their game possessing the matching work ethic that will stick around for 3 or 4 years. Seems to work for Wisconsin. The only thing they've really had missing is one go to star player, which they seem to have this year. I think they make a deep run at it this year.
Is it football season yet?
Freshmen and Seniors. What happened to the middle? I know a lot of guys left because of Matta's short bench, but is this a recruiting issue or a developmental issue?
Weber's tweet says he's hurt. When did that become synonymous with angry? Yes I'd be hurt too if I found out the man that I thought was going to coach me was leaving. I've taken a job because I thought I would be working for the manager that hired me, only to find out 2 weeks later on my first day that he gave notice. That's life.
Would I rather the coaches use full disclosure when recruiting? Sure, but they aren't pulling his scholarship because Drayton recruited him and he's no longer there. That would be something to be angry about.
Horrible decision not to include JT. At least Winston was left home, too.
Mariota will be the next Heisman NFL bust.
The funniest tweet had Michigan included with OSU and MSU as potential playoff teams. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. OMFG. /takes breath LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
One game. They played like the bullets of old, but let's reserve judgement until we have a bigger sample.
I expect Amir will have some decent stats prior to league play, then he'll be on the court taking up space. He has horrible hands, and no strength at all for a big man.
I hope I'm wrong and a miracle happened in the off season, but I won't count on Amir giving this team any meaningful minutes.
28% Cincinatti? Really? This isn't the Tresselball era anymore. They're on par with Kent State.
Navy scares me only because of their chop blocking.
Never underestimate Frank Beamer.
Here's hoping Ramzy's article here and the 11W community can undo some of the assholery that's been perpetrated.
This team needs a leader at linebacker, that plays tough and smart. There's only one guy on that list that meets these quals, #36. Spielman.
Considering how good OSU's defense has been recently against pro-style offenses, I'd say it won't matter if he fixes them. The Buck's troubles have come from spread offenses. I don't think UM has the athletes on their OL to make a difference. Bama's success starts with that massive OL. How else do you explain the mediocre running backs and QBs that have had success there, that hasn't translated to the NFL.
I could care less how UM fares against the rest of the B1G.
I dropped $305 for a club seat to see the Bucks play Navy in Balmer.
$150 for the UM game seems like a bargain.
The reason it was a bad call had more to do with the fact the same Braxton keeper to the short side failed multiple times earlier in the game. Hyde gets that first down.
Personally, I think Dunn makes the first 2.
Well if middling teams from the Big-12, Texas A&M and Missouri, can join the SEC and turn into top teams I have no doubt tOSU would do just fine.
Looks sweet. Thanks.
Early in the MSU game, they repeatedly failed to convert on 3rd and 1 with Braxton. Hyde falls for 2 yards almost every time he touches the ball. Not to mention not even having Hyde on the field on crucial short yardage downs. Or having him split wide. He was as good a lead blocker as he was a runner, yet he was removed from making an impact. This is where Herm/Meyer outsmarted themselves.
So we should all change our avatars to the Bama A and tweet at recruits in hopes that the NCAA will sanction Bama. Because there's no way the NCAA would be able to prove that it was Auburn's fans that did it.
Welcome to the digital age.
I would prefer they play as tough of a non-conference schedule as possible. Unlike football losing games early isn't going to prevent you from winning the NCAA Tournament. Playing tough teams, especially on the road, however changes everyone's perception about the team and the program. Maybe the Schott would sell out a bit more by playing big name teams instead of the cupcakes.
My worry here is that Fickell becomes the only DC. Yikes.
"If All-American Ryan Shazier is removed from the equation, Ohio State is ordinary at best."
They were ordinary with Shazier. Remove him and they would be bad at best.
Now if only his coaching could inspire me the same way.
