lol, Steve shoemaker was my college coach
That's how I saw it, you're not going to "sack" Navy because they rarely pass it. UC and ksu ran the spread so the QB has the advantage to see the pressure early and not waste time dropping back. So much like navy didn't help the sack and run D #'s they padded the pass D's. I expect all to get better as the season moves on from playing spread teams.
The best way to get rid of Hoke and Brandon is to not show up to the games. I am surprised they can draw 50k for how bad that team is functioning
Wow, you know you are doing a bad job when your marketing campaign is benefiting OSU.
Most on here don't pay much attention to espn... So technically we are like the secret service.
In fairness, I hate buck I guy too.
I felt like the mistakes made against UC could be easily corrected. Last year, the mistakes made looked as if people were lost and confused
Yes, he had most of his production out of it.
I am surprised he's not fired already for leaving Morris in with an obvious leg injury or allowing him back in with what looked like a concussion. Can you really recruit now with the complete disregard for player safety on display?
I was going to mention JM in the wildcat which is great since he is a former QB. The plays currently run I.e. Jet sweeps favor a faster back in DW. Perhaps as they did with the wildcat build more plays that suit his skills. The problem is two guys are running the same plays with different results.and I think DW catches better and has made some good receptions. Overall both can be great. Just need the right plays tailored for JM IMO
It's as if hoke is trying really hard to get fired.
With as bad as the defense was for UC it's not a bad thing to get some guys in. Pretty sure Thomas started and they were able to rotate the OL during the game.
the only problem with that statement is if we are going to say he has better vision and ability to break tackles then why are his numbers and average lower than Wilson's? To me that should mean they are better and they are not. I will take a guy that gives me close to 10 a play rather than someone who can break a tackle and only give me 5.
If this was the same pass defense, UC would have been able to move the ball at will in addition to the 3 big plays. They really didn't, in press there is not really any help if a mistake is made. So it comes back to understanding the scheme and not biting on fakes. Last year UC would have had over 500yds because of the inability to tackle and take away the easy passes
Why the hype, did you not watch last season when everyone knew he was getting the ball? What have you seen from Marshall that says he's much better than Wilson, because the stats are not there to prove it. That is not to say Marshall is not talented or good. Wilson is better right now running the same plays.
Kiel wasn't holding on to the ball very long which is the point of the spread. So yes 1 sack happens. OSU has faced 1 team that is not a spread or triple option.
Van Jefferson's father said it, but he always favored his son to go to UGA from the start. If anything the offense under OSU is spread and Van could get a lot more balls his way at UGA which is fair. But I think only one starting WR has left OSU in Smith's tenure and he's playing in the nfl so there is no real basis to say they are not getting development.
In the case of last season he might run them down and then they nickel and dime us the rest of the way for a TD.
That Tressel D also lost to some bad teams as well. It by far was not perfect and I remember far too may late let downs that you easily seem to forget.
So you say that OSU should worry about every pass play then. If they really exploited something last night half of the forum would be talking about how all the coaches should be fired. Chalk me up to moderate since they had success on stopping them on 3rd down in time hopefully they don't bite hard on play fakes
Taking passes from a 5* QB. Bottom line, stars mean little after a few years in college.
I am not sold on TT being a better program than what UC has going since Dantonio. Is middle pack of Big 12 really better than one of the top teams in the AAC? I would say UC has an easier road to a good bowl than TT.
What about the other plays that netted 50 points? One play that got called back is not exactly proof that it's a great play and must be used all the time. It's nice to have and quite frankly I am pretty sure miller has done it a few times.it works for auburn because they might throw 10 times a game. As for smith, what are you looking at to blame him for the WRs for last night? The dropped passes that were not his fault? Can we just take a great offensive performance and be happy without complaining about it? As for the secondary despite the 3 bombs they weren't getting nickeled and dimed down the field which which was a problem last season. Let's give a little time to rate this Secondary. The no fly zone you want hold to compare it to got picked apart in Eugene in addition to being ran on. The D cleans up the deep balls and it can be very good
That's not a good thing if he is constantly running down ball carriers. If only two plays in four games stick out as not running someone down is actually a good thing. I.e. No missed tackles and defenders in the right position most times.
Well he said he's going to fix the 3 plays they got beat on so no not exactly the same thing. So he is concerned with the same plays everyone is upset about. The first TD Bell was there didn't turn his head in time and the WR made a better play. 2nd long TD was the worst no real excuse and the 3rd both safeties bit on the fake. 2/3 involved UC making good plays and accounted for more than half their yds in the air. With that said they forced a good passing team into a lot of 3 and outs and shut them down after their last TD. With over 9 in the 3rd qtr. last year people were lost and missed tackles, I have not seen too much of that this year.
