Exactly. I'm just imagining a scenario, where OSU wins out, and Navy and VT go on to have impressive seasons. A long shot maybe, but not impossible.
I wouldn't disagree about MSU over OSU. I just thought it was helpful to be reminded that one loss shouldn't matter as much in the new system. Imagine if Navy could pull an upset over Notre Dame or VT runs the tables to the ACC championship game. At the end of the season we won't be talking about what teams were ranked or not ranked in September.
You would think that they would have installed some higher percentage plays for man coverage after dealing with MSU last year. Third times a charm I guess.
Actually, it’s a compliment to what we’ve done here in the past in the run game, the way people are lining up against us right now.
I'm not sure it's a complement at this point. Good defenses will load the box against us because we haven't really proven in the UFM era that we can beat anyone through the air. I hope they can think outside the box a little when we face MSU again or the results will be similar to last year.
Sounds like our own version of the triple option.
The only thing that would have made me feel better about that game is if the defense didn't give up 390 yards of total offense.
I'm a little conflicted, I'd think maybe one or two spots. I know Navy is an exception to most offenses, but we did let them put up 390 total yards on us. I guess we won't really know if that's good until they play Notre Dame.
A little more context on the Northwest Ohio water issue. Toledo provides water for over 500,000 people. News of the "Do Not Drink" broke around 3AM on Sat. By 7AM there was no bottled water available anywhere in Toledo. By 10AM, bottle water was gone from cities within a 1 hour radius.
Hold up. Torrance Gibson is thinking about visiting?
You said one of the three characteristics you were looking for in a college program was the opportunity to win a national championship. Do you like Ohio State's chances next year? Any thoughts on the state of the 2015 class towards achieving this goal?
One of the best names ever.
Your commitment broke the "drought" so to speak. Can you talk about any of the conversations you were having with the coaching staff at the time? Did the lack of commitments factor in to your decision to commit when you did?
Even cookie monster is at a loss for words...
Almost makes you think he did that because Ohio State is still holding out for Gibson.
You said that when you received the offer from Ed Warriner you thought everyone was surprised but you. Could you expand on that? What did you know about yourself that others didn't?
4-star QB Deondre Francois (@Deondre_3) is at Auburn today, plans to visit Tennessee and Ohio State this week. Decision coming next month.— Tyler Donohue (@TDsTake) June 17, 2014
Well, it definitely doesn't help when we keep getting love from eligible QBs in the 2015 season.Does Deondre know were only taking one QB?
I like that we're quoting Ari Wasserman regarding Dwayne Haskins Jr., but not Travis Waller. I realize they are in different recruiting years, but the kids essentially said the exact same thing. It seems like at the end of the day it's anyone's best guess.
That's some premium parking in that picture.
That was a great story. Was it just me or did anyone else feel a little bad for Green after reading this part.
Johnson tracks down Green and pulls him out of the drill. He brings him over and says, "We're not going to offer you because you're not good." Green interjected by saying, "I'm not done working for this." Johnson smiled and said, "But we're going to offer you because you're great."
Well played Coach Johnson. Well played.
I love that in 1904 there's a picture of a student feeding another student. Strangest thing I've seen all day.
If they give both kids the chance to the commit for one spot it's hard to see it damaging any goodwill.
