pssssttt, Hey guys.... read option play coming at ya. Gonna go with either Hilliard or Jennings on the keeper.
Man this guy is shaky. What ever happened to Bart Houston, I thought he was the future. Surely there is an ACC transfer on the bench.... Danny O'Brien??
This game has that feel of any of our games with a young TP or Braxton where we struggle the entire game, and pull away late with superior talent.
If Wisconsin blows this game..... my goodness. LSU can't seem to execute basic offensive plays, but pull passes out of their asses on 3rd and long. Hopefully the losses of Herring and Zagzebski don't hear down that defensive front.
Well they will have Mavety, and Roderick Johnson is a stud frosh. Akeem Are is a really solid JUCO guy as well, I'm sure they will be good enough, but as long as Jameis is skrong.
FSU uniforms look horrendous IMO. Like a bad affliction shirt.
anyone else think FSU's uniforms are terrible?
Barrett = Clarett
2002 National Champs QB wears #16 = 2014 National Champs QB wears #16
Tim Anderson = Michael Bennett
Adolphus Washington = Kenny Peterson
Joey Bosa = Mike Kudla + Darrion Scott
Doran Grant = Mike Doss
That's all I've got right now, let me get a few more beers in me.
I know how nerve racking 2002 was every week. I hated it sometimes, but it was so awesome knowing nearly every game we played that year was pretty close. We will be a battle tested team come years end, and if we can manage a bunch of close wins between 1-14 point games, I like our chances as Barrett matures, and we begin to galvanize on the offensive line. Excuses aside, we pulled away from a Navy team late that will probably win 10 games this season.
My biggest concern is our secondary and offensive line. The secondary concerns me just because they will not be tested until Saturday night. VT has some pretty legit playmakers. Offensive line for obvious reasons. Curious to see if anyone gets moved around. I thought Lindsay and Underwood would be starters, and I was wrong.
Brewer is a decent QB, I think they have the athletes and the defense to keep it a game. I see this entire season being similar to the 2002 season.... lots of close games, but we can win them all.
Sweat because of the need for depth at defensive end. He and Holmes=nasty! Gotta think there's a good shot Bosa leaves early. We need pass rushers on the outside, I feel like we are pretty set at DT, and WR as well. Especially if we get Cager.
I really think he will get meaningful PT. With Marcus gone we lack a bunch of depth at DE. Between him, Tyquan Lewis and Jalyn Holmes, we should see those 3 on the field a lot. I like Steve Miller...... he's a joker...
It appears Stoops is following in the footsteps of Switzer rather than Wilkinson. Sad because he is a good coach. You would think at a place like Oklahoma he could raise his standards a little. The have traditionally recruited well, I just read that they are taking on some transfer from Tulsa who got into trouble. Ridiculous.
I'm picking the Bruins to win the Pac12. They return pretty much everyone on the team. I don't think Mora gets enough pub for the job he is doing out there.
I feel like Cardale is cut from the Pryor/Newton mold, not quite the runner those two were, but I could see Cardale being the hammer at QB we haven't had. IMO once we get that guy at QB who can lower his shoulder and get 2 yards when we need it, look out. I feel like Cardale can be that guy. I've heard he has a huge arm as well. With J.T. I think we may get the best of both worlds. I hate making comparisons between our offense and the Gators offense, but they seemed like a machine when the QB could always run for those tough yards. I just keep thinking about the 4th down play v.s. MSU and I can't help but think that even if they keyed the QB on that play.... Tim Tebow would get that yard. I also understand Braxton can do things Tebow could never do. I really hope Cardale gets his shot when it's his time. I feel like many people here overlook him.
If we had a live night scrimmage tonight in Columbus the place would be packed. what a sad picture. I'm assuming this was open to the public??
I agree. Navy presents challenges we won't face the rest of the season. Breaking in a new DC and losing some studs on that side of the ball against a scheme like the triple options is no easy task. If we don't come out clicking on offense and let Navy string together a few long drives, expect a long frustrating game. Rutgers will be well coached with Friedgen there now, I expect them to be solid.
I know many of the folks here don't care or worry about the rest of the B1G, but I do. National perception is everything anymore, especially moving forward with the playoff. If Sparty upsets Oregon on the road, and Wisconsin beats LSU, all of the sudden people respect the conference a little more. Not sure about you guys, but I'm rooting like hell for Sparty to beat the Ducks, then for Oregon to go on a run. If we head into a night game in East Lansing and beat an undefeated top 10, possibly top 5 team by that point, it would be huge for Ohio State, and revenge for 1998 and last season!
2004 Auburn was the start of the SEC conference pride bs. If they would have lost that Bowl game they played against Virginia Tech there wouldn't be as much of a problem with the BCS as you hear today. It didn't help that USC absolutely destroyed Oklahoma in that title game. All the SEC homers claim that was the beginning of the disrespect, then when 2006 happened it further cemented their argument.
Any word from the staff on T-shirt availability? The only thing that pops up when I go to Dry Goods are glasses and hats. I'd love to buy some shirts..... hhhheeelllllllllppppppp!
I had a buddy who moved out there. He called in Menver. Basically the place is a cock forest. Hope you aren't single. I went to a brewery downtown years ago. I cannot recall the name of the place, but it was very nice, and the beer was great. Sorry this information isn't useful.
