They have like 4 of them right?
I am thankful for so many fans being so irate over a bad loss. I dont think its a bad thing at all. Lets try imagining what happens if we did not have these kinds of fans - the ones who demand excellence - hanging around. Yes, it is a bit over board, but they does staff get the message loud and clear? You know they do! Just have to stay off the sites for a few days or weeks if you dont want to constantly hear about it. Or just dont pay no attention to it.
Here are the chrome alt ones, those are green, as you can see.
Here are there usual helmet - black.
Thank god for Tivo ;-)
I can agree this, however, I would say that without those AP would still be playing this weekend (which I dont think he should).
True. Didnt take that into consideration. +1
Dontre only because he starts the game and has actual game experience. But I think Jalin is a welcome addition for some good competition for Dontre. Also, it looks like Dontre has put on some serious muscle in the off-season.
This isn't a dating site. This is
Its going to be a battle because we could stall on Offense for a few drives or so and the D needs to hold strong as well. Going to be a night game (after a bye week) so the atmosphere will be crazy again. Looking forward to a good game, with good guys winning.
I'll take the under on that.
I hate to make excuses but regardless of what people think it still is difficult to completely open your playbook
From day JT got the job, Urbz has said he wants JT to be a distributor for this offense. He had 24 carries Saturday and Eze had 8.
Three or more. MSU is beatable but we just have to many holes in the ship. Now those holes are exposed so early we struggle against these kinds of teams;
Creative HC or Coordinator
Ability to stop the run consistently
Ability to pass to all areas of the field
and have a great pass catching TE.
Those type of teams would give us all we can handle. MSU will stop the run, can pass the all over the field, and has a great HC and Coordinators. I see a trap game against the likes of Cincy, Minnesota or Penn State a potential loss also. I think Cincy is a good team and have watched them play quite a few times. Penn State would be a tough challenge because of the crowd.
I was getting ready to say, Earle, can I get some credit since I intially brought up the idea, but you slammed it home? :-)
Why would you not say that? It is not like every other person doesnt think you will do it. You have to!
Fair enough. So seeing it the first two quarters did not warrant a gameplan adjustment of any kind? I mean by then he has now SEEN it. Now you need to ADJUST to it. Or lets keep doing the same thing over and hope it finally works?
Your telling me a simple swing pass to the flat is that hard to do? Maybe even having your slot WRs do a drag route across the middle? Do a WR sweep? I mean they could of tried SOMETHING other than fade routes is all I am saying. When you fail to prepare for something or do not adjust to it an entire game, sorry, but you get out-coached.
All the above.
So your saying we should to conitinue to not prepare for it even though its not feasible? Isnt that what we just did and get handled?
Expectations ARE NOT lowered IMO. I still expect this team to a) win the Big Ten, b) beat TTUN, and c) win a bowl game against a quality team (hopefully). Just probably no NC this year.
They should have mods on there deleting forum posts after a tough loss. People need time to possibly sober up and settle down a bit. But you are right, it is pretty emabarassing to have some non-11w member, active lookie-loo, etc come by here and see all that stuff. It makes us look terrible. Need to act like grown-ups, basically. Kudos to you Earle for pointing that out.
Still a Buckeye fan, although just a little down. Buckeyes are serious business and this just shows. You mentioned TTUN for reference and I would argue its because of those very critical (and possibly crazy?) fans are the ones that keep us on the straight and narrow for a NC. We are so passionate (and again, possibly crazy?) for our Buckeyes that truly hurts when they lose any game. Some just have a hard time masking it. I can do without the firing threads of everyone because that is flat out ridiculous, but I undertstand the passion. I still have faith in this team for sure, but they of course have quite a bit of work to do. Now all they need is to run the table and you can still salvage this season to something pretty darn good (still a snow-balls chance in hell we can make the PO, or at least a good bowl vs another quality team). O-H! and Go Bucks!
Of all the things that bother me the most of that game, getting out-coached they way they did was flat out embarrassing. I mean they have to have a serious soul-searching moment and get on the same page.
