Yea I don't get it either. He seems kinda like a clown but it doesn't seem like something to get as riled up about as everyone does on here.
How about that guy Chip Kelly, He seems like he runs a good offense.
"Would he take the job" "yes" that certainly seems presumptuous. That entire program is a dumpster fire, why would he want to move there?
On the money.
Duh. Wasn't even thinking about the returning.
I really think that by the end of his career, Barrett will be the clear cut GOAT. Clearly he had the greatest single season of any qb. I can't wait to see what he does next year.
By the end of his career here, you'll probably be right. I'm not ready to put him over Tupa just yet though.
I'd line up Ryan Shazier in the H-Back position any day. Now that would be terrifying.
I dig it, the linebackers for me are the hardest just because there are so many fantastic ones to choose from.
My Ohio state all time team:
QB: Troy Smith
RB: Eddie George, Keith Byars
WR: David Boston, Cris Carter
TE: John Frank
OT: Orlando Pace, Korey Stringer
OG: Jim Parker, Jim Lachey
C: Nick Mangold
DE: Mike Vrabel, Joey Bosa
DT: Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkerson, Jim Stillwagon
LB: AJ Hawk, Chris Spielman, Andy Katzenmoyer
CB: Shawn Springs, Antoine Whitfield
S: Jack "The Assassin" Tatum, Mike Doss
P: Tom Tupa
K: Mike Nugent
KR/PR: Ted Ginn Jr.
I totally forgot about Ricky Dudley, and would probably change it on the next iteration of this list.
I can feel that, though I worry more about our d line depth than I do our wr depth.
I think our defense is much better suited to slow cooper than it was for Watkins last year. We play more press, and we are much better at stoping the screen game, which is how Watkins just destroyed our d last year.
1. Springs to cover Cooper
2. Orlando Pace. No offense to Decker he's been great, but Pace is the greatest college Left Tackle of all time.
3. Mike Nugent, for all kicking duties
4. Big Daddy
Did I say that at some point, or are you just reflecting people's attitudes on here? Cause I'll admit, in the VT game, I called for his head, but I've since come around.
Tonight jt was just beautiful man.
We have a couple coaches who are pretty good at developing QBs too ya know.
I will forever believe that the reason Tressel covered for the guys who got caught up in tatgate was how saw the way that Maurice Clarrett had his life basically destroyed for his transgressions. After that, I think he said "Never again, we handle all this in house. I'm not leaving my guys out to dry again, and the chips will fall where they will." Tress always seemed like a real OG ride-or-die mothafucka in that sense.
That was what made him a great coach and even better man.
1. The transformation of Troy Smith from last recruit in the class who took money from boosters, to the Heisman Trophy winning legend he ended his career as, is the single greatest testiment to the type of man and coach Jim Tressel was. Don't get me wrong, I love UFM as much as anyone, but Coach Tressel (as well as Troy Smith) will always have a special place in my heart.
2. The term "make them be loyal to their soil" is one of the best things I've read in a long time. Again, God I love Troy Smith.
Sounds like you could use a chill pill my friend, cause that seems like a rather asinine thing to get all riled up over
With 4 great recruits already committed, and a couple more possibly coming soon (McCall, Haskins and the like) maybe we won't run into it too much this year.
Nah, Eli definitely has a Positive turnover margin.
Go Blue Aces and all man, but he beat our defense like they stole something.
