The only team on this list I would concede to is Alabama. Lest we forget, Michigan only mustered 14 against Wisconsin, Clemson should've lost to NC State, and who has Washington played? It took them overtime to beat unranked Arizona team. 

None of these teams are teflon right now, but the Tide sure look the part. 

The offense needs to open up though most definitely.

I don't disagree with that, but I think the staff has recognized that and it shows in the recruiting with how many true receivers we've been bringing in along with the QBs who have games more centered around slinging the rock rather than the guys we have now. If we look at  Campbell, McLaurin, Brown, etc. these guys were really all "do-it-all" players who happened to be the best athletes on their team. Guys like Mack, Victor, Grimes, Lindsey, are all true WRs, to go along with Burrow, Haskins, Martell, and Jones the future, so I don't think Urban doesn't recognize that.

And I think playing against Wisky and seeing how they keyed on Samuel, made them want to try to get the offense going without running it completely through him (which was a mistake, IMO) but I often feel like offense is run one of two ways - either you take what the defense gives you or you dictate what you want from the defense. And we don't dictate enough.

I don't believe that this team doesn't have the talent; I think the coaching staff is coaching scared. There are so many concepts we don't run any more that were effective that we just stopped doing for pretty much no reason. I don't see how other teams can run shovel passes, jet sweeps, etc. against us but we don't. I don't understand why we don't use TE and tunnel screens. I don't understand why we don't take the easy TE 5 yard out route. I don't understand why don't run more read option passing plays. I don't understand why we don't take more 50/50 shots with one on one match-ups. I don't understand why we don't keep running tempo.

There were a lot of poor offensive coaching decisions last night.

Couple that in with slanted refereeing and our own player mistakes, then this is what we get.

Exactly this. We have really high expectations because of all the talent we have on this team, but you've got two night games against two teams getting healthy and coming off a bye week to prep for us.

This team has a culture that will have it respond rather than fold.

Yea and you guys are overreacting. We lost of a blocked punt, a blocked field goal, a jump ball in the endzone and some pretty timely penalties and a no-call on a pass interference against James Clark, etc.

Each time we've lost a game, this team as rebounded with a vengeance. I know some of you guys are hurting from the loss, but when you look at the numbers , we had a great shot to win. J.T. getting sacked six times doesn't help, but how many drives stalled because of false starts, such putting us in 3rd and long situations?

We outgained Penn St. had more 1st downs, more TOP, held Barkley under 100 yards, the QB to 8-23 passing, but 8 penalties for 45 yards compared to just 1 penalty for 5 yards against them and only got 1 sack ourselves. 

It took the perfect storm for us to lose that game, not to mention the passing game went 65% for 245 yards and a touchdown. Sure we need more downfield 50/50 shots if you ask me, but I don't think we do the best job scripting plays to start games or halfs, and that's what really bogs us down.

I actually think Texas A&M has the formula to beat Bama. Kevin Sumlin has proven that he has an offense that with a great mobile QB at the helm can score on Saban's defense which is now devoid of Kirby Smart. The last couple years, A&M's QB situation was mud before Trevor Knight took the helm; a kid who with Oklahoma already beat an Alabama team that was supposed to be a national title contender, so he'll have confidence with that. Then comes the wildcard which would be John Chavis, who has a 2-8 record against Saban coached teams albeit with some largely mediocre offenses and stellar defenses at LSU.

I think this A&M team has the ability to go into Tuscaloosa and win, just like they did a few years ago.

Comment 03 Oct 2016

It would be stupid to fire a guy barely three years into his program, but such is college politics. I mean if you're a team which recruited at peak 9-win talent that has left the program, then you should a least let a coach get 5 years so they have a senior class and establish a program culture. I mean they had terrible a offense when he got there, now they can score some points. Give him time to get his defense together instead of such a short leash... Mack Brown's last few recruiting classes were terrible, and especially so for Texas.

Comment 30 Sep 2016

I was thinking exactly this Navy. None of the teams Louisville played were dogs like OSU's secondary.

I'm sorry, but I think we load the box play Cover 1, and have Jerome Baker spy him. I don't think Louisville would crack 28 points and eventually, OSU's offense wears down their defense. Buckeyes win 52-24. 

Comment 15 Sep 2016

I actually forgot they had signed Birdman and Dunleavy too. They would easily have the most versatile collection of bigs in the league.

I mean 12 man roster for the playoffs - Kyrie, Swish, LeBron, Love, TT | Mo, Shump, RJ, Frye, Birdman | Dunleavy

Then you'd have Felder, McCrae, and Liggins in tow for that final yea maybe cut Liggins and pick up Sanders? But then having Birdman and Sanders would be superfluous right? Since Sanders is basically a younger (by 10 years) more athletic version of him,

Comment 14 Sep 2016

I'm not exactly sure why you'd be worried about team chemistry, especially given the Cavs culture right now. They're tighter than ever and I'm sure they'd embrace him even dealing with mental illness. That said, if the Cavs signed him, they repeat. Even against the Warriors.

Larry Sanders is a top flight, Grade A+ rim defender, a great dunker at the rim, and a decent rebounder. If you get the LeBron effect and come playoff time you get a big who average 10ppg, 9.5rebs, and 2.8blks and you could play him with Love, Frye, or RJ in the game and make some excellent defensive lineups between him Lebron, Shump, RJ, Swish, or TT. 

Definitely sign him.

Comment 09 Sep 2016

Not gonna lie, I felt somewhat immature about his voice before pressing play...(that damned Common Man) but, it ultimately served as a buffer and I was able to really feel what Evan was saying. Congrats youngblood. Make some noise out West against those Warriors & Timberwolves. #RipCitySuperVillian #VillainToTheHOF 

Comment 04 Sep 2016

Don't think it's fair to call people dicks for having an honest opinion about the kid, even if it's a negative opinion and supported by his own play. He says all the right things about embracing competition, but it's been clear that when the competition is elite, he underperforms. He's the only one in control of that, and people are just calling it for what it is...

Comment 04 Sep 2016

Excellent game by these young Bucks all around! One my fellow 11Wers said something along the lines of it being great to finally see the offense doing what we'd imagine they'd do and I couldn't agree more.

I mean sure it's BGSU and we don't necessarily expect to do this to a contender, but is it fair to have had this expectation?  Like is it wrong if I fully expect the same thing to happen against Tulsa? 

Damn shame about what happened to Tracey. I hope it's the least of the worst news for what that's worth. Was he the 3-Tech and Hill the 1-Tech?

Comment 04 Sep 2016

Yea, and I believe Jackson was the one who ran down Harris too and I believe he's a 4.32 40 kid. Of all the guys on USC that could've ran down a Derrick Henry last year, he'd be the one guy you'd pick. 

Comment 31 Aug 2016
I don't think we should understate how important having Tom Herman was for JT in 2014. Now that JT has had a full off-season as the guy, and with an established formula for Beck & Warriner, maybe will get to see the offense open up with those vertical shots we lost with Devin Smith, but I'd like to see some deep outs and comebacks too. Just more down field throws.

You might have to go to Detroit or Grand Rapids to a Buckeye bar, but it depends; you may have to rely on the app if you can't find a BWW or something of the sort nearby. And sure, we believe you

Comment 29 Aug 2016

Yea, I don't think we should overlook that Corey Smith's name wasn't mentioned for a lot of great reasons mentioned above by you brilliant bastards. But let's not forget to acknowledge who WAS mentioned.

That means those guys stepped up and earned that right.

Noah Brown picked up right where he left off before his injury. Parris Campbell stayed healthy through spring and camp and took a spot. Our man RUN TMC! I mean this guy was a SPARQ Champ Runner Up at The Opening y'all! This kid ran a laser timed 4.34 forty. He balled out in the Spring Game on the deep balls and he's proved that wasn't a fluke guys. He's arrived to meet coach Meyer's challenge again!  

And Austin Return of The Mack! You know, 11W does a great job of making us fall in love with our team, and they do a great job hyping games and especially these recruits and we have high expectations of all of them, but some kids don't research their potential, some that do, and some that go beyond it. AustinMatic has been the real deal from DAY ONE.

What he and Michael Jordan are doing is DAMN impressive.

Let's just keep this one going! It was already good for one title for Ohio no?
