You know, there is a chance that Burrow and Gibson start a real QB debate around here.
This is going to be a weird off-season. Three legit QB's. Here we go.
Ohio State Probs.
And the year after that. And the year after that... And the year after that.....
Ohio State probs. No complaining here.
This guy is the real deal. These playoffs have shown that he can run with real competition.
I pay attention to my ex-lovers because I like watching the dumpster fires that I have avoided. Absolutely no jealously here.
As it pertains to KK, I would not trade any of our starters for him.
Warning: He doesn't have any free candy. He already ate it all.
There, I finally made a Hoke fat joke. I figured this would probably be my last shot.
So Cooper has a lower percentage than a guy who never beat TTUN... Glad I was too young to remember those days...
He just wanted to save that from being an interception. He has a ratio to protect ya know!
Still the best damn song on the planet.
That is the greatest thing I have ever seen. Also, I have wondered why people don't try to pull that move more often, but now I know why!
The irony is that when OSU plays those teams, those teams will drop in the defensive rankings, making our wins seem even less legit. Stunning stat though.
Welp. We finished off Illinois. Who do we play next week again?
Next week is the type of game that I live for. I hope it is the type of game that my kids will watch on ESPN Classic as they drive their hover craft to school. If JT can manage to convert on third downs, and if Bosa, Bennett, and Co. can keep Cook on his butt all night, it is OSU's game to lose. That said It won't be easy. They will be ready, and we will be ready. I am already getting pumped for this! May the work week seem short!
Heaven Forbid and I feel dangerously foolish for even thinking it, but if we had to roll with Jalin Marshall at QB, I would watch that game for sure. It would be extremely interesting. Again, I am perfectly fine with rolling with JT, or Cardale, or even an one armed Braxton Miller, but if it came to it, I still think we could put up points. We would have to run a true triple option, and our defense is becoming good enough to pull that off. Just saying that if it came to it, I would want to see it. Again, I guess I am just one of those people who want to see the world burn. I still want to roll with JT this week.
Side note: Cardale made this coaching staff look pretty good tonight didn't they?
I think this shows that the best teams can keep the best talent in-state and yet are still able to recruit nationally at a high level. You can't go all local like Maryland and you can't go all national like Purdue.
I like the simplicity of it all. It is not a thing where he is showboating or dissing anyone. It is a simple gesture that he didn't create. It kind of fits his personality.
I would really like to see an extensive package with Jalin Marshall at QB for games like this, where you still want to be dangerous but want to limit JT's carries. I watched him in High School, and while his throws aren't exactly beautiful, he can really run the triple option at an extremely high level. And he is strong enough to handle the QB runs up the middle. What I do not want is last week where everyone knew that the Wildcat was keeping it to the outside every play, but rather run a true triple option.
Is this some sad attempt to distract us from.... OH BUT DAT PASS DOE!!!
I would say that dropping Jefferson will probably really lock in the three guys we have right now. That is a great show of faith by the coaching staff to drop the recruitment of an absolute stud. If they would have continued to recruit him, I would have been pissed if I were those three. But dropping him is a great move. I would've liked to have him, but I like these three Ohio dudes better.
While I want Michigan to become relevant again for the sake of SOS and the rivalry, I would be lying if I said that I am not enjoying this. Enjoying it a whole lot.
I agree 100%. Right now, he needs to learn form this and the underclassmen need to learn about consequences and etc.
Well, as much as I liked him, there is not enough time for him to get back on the team, which means next man up. It hurts, and it doesn't even open a scholarship up for next year. I don't like this one bit. Right now I don't see any positives, but maybe he can use this as a wake-up call for whatever he issues were. He is the only person that can change this from a negative situation into a positive one.
I wish you the best Rod Smith!
