Simmons is awesome. Doing this in the shadow of "the bighouse" is really special. This seems to be shaping up as one of those classes that we look back on with amazement. Not to mention when the draft comes around the millions of dollars these gents will combine to earn!
Competing for rings vs earning rings. If he wants the academics and football, good guys get him. TUN doesn't compete for National Championships and academics have been sliding. If I were a recruit I would be looking at the process just like he is. And...I would add program stability and character into the spreadsheet.
Amen. I have thought the same thing before.
Excellent! Go Bucks! Go Fox! Go Spiels!
Joe Bauserbomb to help "Weenie Arm" with his passing distribution.
Return to Rockytop?
At the end of the game, Urban was shaking a coaches hand as players took a knee. At least I think it was a coach. He was flipping someone off. Who was that coach?
Who was the coach flipping people off as he was shaking urban's hand as he was addressing team at end?
I thought "The Chef" was best buds with LeCounte?
How about Houstons OC, DC and receivers coach?
I move that we officially change the name to The Kirk Ferentz COY Award.
With the talent we had in 2015 we sure as hell should have been in the playoffs. Again, when players, former players, national pundits see it and call it out... there is an issue...beating a dead horse and agree with OP.
I completely agree with you. Legitimate question considering the receivers want the ball more. And should get the ball more. How many timing patterns were executed? A seasoned QB would develop confidence with some short slants. (Thomas MSU last year comes to mind). What happened to spreading the field with all this playmaking ability? Michigan linebackers were slow and out of position as MI fans continue to bitch about. So why can't we call plays to take advantage of that?
And your Cleveland Clowns ladies and gentlemen.
Thanks for the link. Was just looking to see if it was on.
Has anyone found harbayghs post game interview yet?
This is gonna be so much fun talking shit for the next year!
Do we know what hotel chain? Will be sure not to frequent brand when I travel.
Good points. Quite honestly I am good with both Beck and Warriner leaving. If Warriner doesn't accept a demotion he can move on. He unfortunately is deserving of a demotion. Iowa, MSU and UM seemed to good OC and OL coaches. I'm also a bit concerned about the receiver coaching. I know there have been injuries, but still. The amount of talent on the sideline is just ridiculous.
Urbs must be freaking out inside. Zero units strong.
Debra Barone guest picking? The Middle is an ABC show. Ohio State grad. Her dad was a writer for Plain Dealer.
I realize I don't make millions to coach and Urban does, but why is it so obvious to us? What are we missing? What aren't we aware of? There must be more to this behind the scenes.
So why have the live thread?
We were worried about potentially losing Warriner. Now I am worried Urban can't move him back to just Line Coach next year and get a good OC. Took him a couple years to get rid of Withers and I think we can all agree that was a good move. At the beginning of the year we had 3-4 potential Heisman contenders. Now we have 1. And that emerged 5 games into the season. I think our Head Coach looks worn out and mentally exhausted. I wonder if deep down he believes he made a mistake or two that is not correctable mid season? I feel bad for Urbs. He s trying to let his coaches grow and learn. However, this is the most talent I have ever seen on a Buckeye team and this offense is cruising along like a used 20 year old station wagon and not the Ferrari anticipated.
Also, I am disappointed our 2 and 3 deep aren't getting the reps I expected because we don't have big leads against suspect (or maybe they are just good) teams. This is going to haunt us next year with a lack of solid coaching offensively and so many inexperienced players stepping in. If we blew these teams out as was expected, it would leave our #1's fresh for the stretch run of our season and get our 2 and 3's much needed experience.
I am saddened. Feel bad for the young men. Just not sure our staff has them prepared to play at the level I feel this talent should be playing at. I can see players lashing out to the fan base. This is not good. We do not play the games. This was actually supposed to be the year. I hope it is but......
