Because Marshall has proven himself and there is no one better behind him to take his reps. We have some guy named zeke elliot. Tough to get carries especially when you have issues in your limited action. May be a double standard, but production and lack of options presents more opportunities

I think today is the day we all take a deep breath, relax and start to see the buzzsaw we expected in the offseason. I think 12 plays with some confidence and Zeke puts himself right back at the top of the Heisman conversation. IU scores an annoying TD early and it's tied 10-10 after one, then the fireworks come. 59-17

Getting the national 5 star kids us obviously necessary and something urban is great at. But the value of getting these homegrown, born and raised buckeye kids is so huge for the continuing culture of the program. This kid is going to work his ass off competing against the 4 and 5 stars because he absolutely bleeds scarlet and gray. Very little doubt he will be successful.

Yea. It's true. Pandering to recruits is bad. The top recruiting has not paid off, we've been so bad the past few years. Also, how dare Ohio State change its uniforms.....we've had the same uniform since the beginning of time, right? I thought about putting in the sarcasm font, but I hope it isn't needed.

If you are going to boycott Ohio State based on what jerseys they wear, then don't come back.

Thad needs a big break like this. Things haven't been bad by any stretch, but it seems like we are kind of in a stretch of average here recently. Landing a big fish like Simmons might kind of re-jump the Matta Machine. I'm not too concerned with scholarships, its college bball, something is going to happen. We've got a lot of young guys and someone isn't going to get PT and will transfer, or someone is going to ball out and be in the NBA. Hopefully Kobi comes aboard!

you seem to forget about a year ago, after the loss to VT. We had lost 3 out of 4 games and people were legitimately questioning Urban's tenure as head coach. Both on here and other places. We good

Comment 24 Sep 2015
But why is that bad? Why is it not reasonable to tell cardale that bad performances won't be tolerated, because there's a 5th place Heisman guy on the bench? It 12 can't handle that, that's a bigger issue. I'm not saying 2 bad series and a hook, but the hook was appropriate against NIU. I only have an issue with rotating. If a guy isn't getting it done on a given day, replace him. Urban isn't doing his job otherwise

I agree with ya Gofor2. This is the identity that Harbaugh wants. Be tough as nails, run the ball down your throat, don't make mistakes at QB. I'm interested to see how they fare against BYU this week. I still don't think they have the horses to beat us this year, but they're gonna make us at least think about it

Just an observation...it seems to me that while the O-line obviously isn't getting the push we expect them too...it seems Zeke is seeking out contact a little more than the end of last year instead of making cuts, etc...  He's finding the first guy and dropping his shoulder trying to truck people.

My concern level is about a 5. I don't think anyone even possibly has the horses to beat us until Penn state on the 17th, and even then, I don't know if they can do it in the shoe. We've seen all of these guys be successful, from the O-line to the QB and RB. Gotta just get some of that confidence will, and I think Saturday is a great chance to start

I think Urban did pick one. I think it was Cardale. He got basically every meaningful snap against Va Tech because things were going well. He got first snaps against Hawaii and NI, until he was very clearly not performing well. Its great to say "pick one", but if he picks JT, and JT is playing awful, and there's a quality, proven guy like Cardale sitting there (or vice versa), how do you not make a change?

Now, I'm cool with saying we aren't going to rotate, and so and so is our guy...unless things aren't going great. Its hard to have someone looking over your shoulder, but when the back up is qualified, there is nothing wrong with making changes when things aren't going well and guy number one just isn't getting the job done. Saturday was a good example. 12 threw the first interception and looked dreadful, Urban stuck with him. Things didn't improve, and then int number 2 happened, and then hooked.

It's wonderful (or awful?) to live in a world where a 38-0 shutout W, is completely and totally disappointing. On one hand, it's great to root for such an incredibly talented team where that's the case, on the other hand, I worry that us fans aren't going to enjoy the year like we did last year.

Let's be honest, if Rudock has an Iowa game, Michigan probably wins. He was awful tonight.

This is the funniest thing I've ever heard. TTUN fans are hoping their QB has an "Iowa game" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA MICHIGAN WANTS TO HAVE IOWA GAMES this is so beautiful
