Was anyone yelling at the TV that last offensive series? No urgency, taking 25 secs to run the damn play, JT making adjustments as the play clock hits 5 seconds...just mind blowing.
We didn't lose because of a blown call....we lost because we played poorly on special teams, offensive play calling, O-line lack of blocking, WR's not getting open, JT missing the few open WR's, and....well we just played poorly. We better do some soul searching before next week with NW playing hot, let alone scUM at year's end...just a bad showing overall.
I agree with almost everything said on these postings. But how do you fix the issues brought up (over and over)? If by halfway through the season they haven't been addressed or fixed then will they ever? I don't think JT's arm will get any stronger. If he can't pull the trigger on time now after being QB for a couple years then will he ever? Same for WRs getting open, etc. Same for play calling, etc.
This so much! I love JT but his vision and second, third option reading on pass plays is severely lacking right now. That and for three straight games he underthrows open WRs or overlooks the best option. I don't know how this gets fixed. I'm sure they see it on film, he just needs to execute better.
I honored Braxton by taking him in my fantasy draft. My starting WR's are: Mike Thomas, Braxton Miller, Ted Ginn. Back ups: Jalin Marshall, Corey Brown and Terrelle Pryor. I also have Zeke and Carlos as RBs. Nugent as PK and Nick Vannette at TE. I do have Cardale as backup also. Live and die by Buckeyes.
Had my last dining in and POW ceremony this past Christmas - retirement beckoned after 30 years. Thanks for finding the ceremony agenda. Also reminds me of our last roll call for those who were KIA.
A different take...how about this:
117 yds rushing, 398 passing. We need to practice throwing the ball. Save the legs of Webster and JT
A rare phone sign on for me to say my thanks for this article. I have 4 kids who wrestle (one a daughter) who need to see examples like Kyle. Thanks again.
Oh no! NCAA coming to town with his admittance to everyone being juiced.
Our love for current and former players certainly can result in rose colored glasses especially when the topic is a bad as this. I also wanted to give every benefit of doubt to Zeke. Let it play out.
Do OSU students have dental coverage? Maybe a trip to an orthodontist is in order. Made a difference for me.
I was honored to attend the 97 Masters for Tiger's first. Was on 18 when he thrust his arm in his classic style. Military assigned to Fort Gordon (located there in Augusta) could put in for a raffle of 100 passes per day. I chose Sunday and luckily won. Awesome memories.
Freaking funny this is.
Fastest student Buckeye is ripped - offer him now!
What is Snyder's weight and height?
Just my two cents - another GREAT Showtime show is Penny Dreadful. Really improved from Season 1 to 2. Very much looking forward to its season opener soon (along with GOT).
Even if he is a SCum alum...
What's a sad commentary on our society is, Urban even with this high level of compensation is not ultra super rich. 87% of the world's total wealth is held by the richest 10% of the population which Urban is not even close to being in. People who are considered to have an ultra-high net worth have at least $50 million US in assets. Globally, this group contains approximately 123,800 people. So this leaves me sad given I have a decent job and make around 90K a year and sometimes still struggle with my family of 7. My salary Its sorta like looking at the size of the universe: my city is large, yet compared to my state its small, which compared to the US is even smaller compared to the world...compared to the solar system....compared to the milky way....compared to BILLIONS of galaxies, etc, etc. That said I sure would give it a try making my annual salary EVERY month or something comparable.
I get your sentiment but apparently there are actual jobs and careers out there that make this kind of dough. I personally have never even sniffed this level of compensation being in the military the past 30 years, but more power to those who make this compensation. It is sorta depressing though.
I'm frustrated with out big men missing 2 footers every game. Would be nice to have big men with some offensive skills. Thompson missed probably 4 lay ins. Hopefully they will improve over the season. Just keeping low expectations so I don't get more frustrated.
Crazy Buckeye fans...always over the top.
I hear you, but playing time is a "thing". As a parent of athletic kids, you want to see them on the field/court to contribute. As a former player, I understand the desire to contribute to the team and get into games, not just "support" the team in practice. My kids nor I were never remotely good enough to play at the Div 1 level but I can understand any frustration that Grandstaff may have had. He was most likely the stud player on his high school team and the transition to riding the pine was probably difficult. Not saying his decision was right or wrong and I hope his transfer works out for him and his plans/goals - I do understand his reasoning though.
After 28 years of marriage I can fully concur with this point.
I'd take the second team in a head to head game. Some really excellent players there. It's a matter of small degrees of separation when it comes to these honors. Congrats to all these fine young men.
