If this happens as described I'll be happy of course for our basketball team. How about a football related dream? Any visions of the O line blocking, speed guys not being tripped up by the shoe laces and corners pressing and smothering WR's? I'd love to have that vision come true.
When this man gets into his 70's (if he lives that long), Bear Bryant's going to have an awfully long double chin....
The Genesis of the Exodus of Leviticus is relational to the Numbers of drugs he had.
Braxton needs to declare and hope his reputation doesn't become like RG3's. I love Braxton and he's been a great Buckeye, but propbably in his best interests to move on and get paid at this game.
Certainly hope to have a better team next season, but wish our schedule would not be so whimpy - sure we can get revenge on VA Tech in their house, but other than that, Hawaii, Northern Ill and Western Mich???? Not going to gain ANY points with media with decisive victories over those schools. I hope our decision makers add P5 schools in future schedules (and not basement dwelling ones). Only way to overcome the media is to play tough schools and beat them.
We have two main RB's on my sons 8th grade youth county team. One is bigger and a little faster than the other but he seemingly gets less YAC than the smaller RB. Why? I think the smaller kid senses and "feels" the movement and has better peripheral vision. Plus the small kid actually hits holes harder and has a nice jump stop to boot. I think that great RBs have an inherent sense on when to cut or drop a shoulder. Something that really can't be taught.
Urban better win the BIG Championship, he's had three years to right the ship....
I suppose I'd just be happy with us to cover the spread (-32). That would probably mean our WR's got lose from coverage, our line blocked someone and they didn't take away our running game.
Hatas gonna hate bro!
Absolute perfect clip for this thread- bravo!
The Buckeye busting 9-2 box defeat defense. Their corners creep in the box also then run quickly out to the WR's. Got no answer for that, our staff has already conceeded it. Might as well not suit up.
Spot on - totally concur with this post. Sadening, really.
Um, Kent State is in the MAC - hasn't the MAC been beating or at least playing very tough all BIG teams thus far? I'm not counting any chickens yet...
So been waiting for Ross' analysis. Can't get unemotional, straight forward takes on the good, bad and ugly (especially after wading thru all the roller coaster comments here the past few days). Clearly if Ross can diagnose our ineptitude and repeated game plan mistakes, can't our million dollar staff do so also?
SO let's get back to only recruiting Ohio 2 and 3 star athletes, coach them up, play fundamental football and be tough again. I didn't mind that when we were doing that. My expectation wasn't winning a national championship every year either. I don't know what to think now, frustration, expectation level to high, drinking cool aid too much. I can't even enjoy college football anymore.
Being upfront, I am usually a glass half empty persona but I just can't get it out of my mind that we pay Meyer millions (I repeat MILLIONS) of dollars, provide him and his staff the VERY BEST facilities, and support and fan base - all to be at the pinnacle of this sport...and we get this outcome. Its been 12 years since we have won a championship. I think some hard focused dissent is totally acceptable. I know in my job if I were given the level of support and compensation this staff is, and I produced as they have, I wouldn't have my job very much longer.
Concur, thought we'd be in the 20's. Well, unless we get our crap straight, Kent St might be stacking the box next week and Fickle won't have any more answers - more "Well I don't know" pressers, and we'll be out of the polls entirely. The MAC is closing in on the BIG fast as evidenced by this weekend.
I don't know, I get confused with all the pre-season hype - Silver Bullets returning...all the weapons at our disposal, "great coaching" to boot, etc, etc. Yet we are at home, in prime time, and allow 7 sacks, and go 2-12 on 3rd down and make a bunch of turnovers AND HAVE FRUSTRATING PLAY CALLING. That's just not a very good team. Too much cool aide flowing to start the year. I love my Buckeyes, but need to take a realistic view from now on. On top of all that, the BIG freaking laid a huge egg today. No way our conference reps in the final four. S
Now if only my computer wouldn't lock up on this page, I'd probably enjoy these.
But Hill at Texas A&M is a red shirt freshman and threw for 500+ yards. Clearly JT is a failure. All SEC fans know their QBs are Godlike.
Only thing I was disappointed with our LB's was inconsistent coverage of the pitch out/option. Navy ran for a ton of yards, so that was disappointing. That also stems from a lack of push from the D line, so they were a little inconsistent too. Need to blow up those plays in the backfield.
Respectfully disagree Sir. They have athletes, heart and discipline. They will win 8-9 games this year.
