Really hope we get Hamlin. He seems to tackle in open space really well and he comes from a great program too. Plus, its always nice to get players from my hometown; he dominated my alma mater in that video!
Staff-have you considered making a regular basketball recruiting write up similar to Birm's Hurry Up? I think that would really enhance interest in basketball recruiting. I even thought of a name for the piece: The Fast Break. Thoughts?
Maybe Weber knew there would be a chance Drayton would be leaving, making his decision more difficult this past week
I'm indifferent about the call. One part of me screams that they should have given it to Lynch every single time from the 1. But another part of me thinks that it wasn't a bad play call. It was a rub route/pick play right? If the outside receiver doesn't get beat and actually runs the play like its supposed to, its an easy pitch and catch. We've seen the play run millions of times (the controversial ND-FSU play comes to mind). So I can totally understand what they were thinking: Let's decoy Lynch because they are certainly thinking run, then run a rub route and throw an easy TD. But the Pats DB made an unbelievable play (Tyvis Powell vs UM esque).
Meech is a Guard. My money is on Jamarco Jones. I think Farris will continue to be the first OL to come off the bench because of his versatility.
Baylor-MSU should be a great game. Classic strength vs strength matchup with Baylor's explosive offense against MSU's defense.
one of the best football games I've ever watched. It's a shame someone has to lose...
Whoever it is, I can't imagine them going with a coach that runs the spread offense. Switching back to the spread would be so counterproductive after Hoke spent the last 4 years trying to convert a spread offense that converted from a pro style, back into a pro style. This eliminates (among popular candidates): Mullen, Helfrich, Cutcliffe, Leach, and Graham. My guess is 1. Stoops 2. Addazio (BC I believe) if they can't get a Stoops brother.
That's a scary thought
He was listed as an OLB according to 24/7, but he is versatile enough he could play either imo
I agree, I just put him up there because I don't know how ready Baker will be as a freshman. And plus, the talent is there, so maybe he will put it all together.
How I see the depth chart playing out:
WLB-Perry, Booker, Hilliard/Berger
MLB-Kwon, Williams, Connor
SLB-Lee, Worley, Baker/Johnson
Florida likely won't go for another Coordinator/first time HC again. I don't think Morris has been a HC at this level
1. Are you sure it wouldn't be on ESPN2? Usually they flip between the two channels by region.
2. As a fellow resident of Pgh Mullen's is always the move for me when watching games back home. What part of Pittsburgh do you call home?
Anyone know a good wall repairman to fix the wall I just ran through? #BlameCoachCoombs
I've been saying for a while now that we need to get rid of Seven Nation Army as our primary "pump-up" song. It's so cliche now; everyone does it, and frankly its getting old. Most people I've talked to at games share my sentiments. This is Ohio State and we shouldn't be followers when it comes to traditions and gameday atmosphere. A new (and unique) pump up song would do the trick imo.
My idea is to incorporate the song "Downfall of Us All" by A Day to Remember. I might be biased because they are one of my favorite bands, but if you listen to the beginning of the song, I think it would be a great song to get the students jumping around and getting loud. (Some people might think its too "heavy" but we play that Rage Against the Machine song all the time at games so I don't think that would be a big deal). The first couple seconds could be repeated and chanted by the students, then at "lets go" everyone starts jumping around/cheering. Excited to see what y'all think about the idea.
(I made this suggestion to the guys at Block O through an email but they never responded...)
We (Block O) did a Columbus Crew song that I thought was pretty cool. I hope we continue doing that because I know I enjoyed it.
Did the bagel have free cream cheese on it?
Wasn't it Clark who had the season ending injury, and Corey Smith with the redshirt?
