I never though for a second he was going to play TE. Dude is HUGE. If he commits himself to the position, he could be a stud at OL.
Has taken the offense to another level. With that said, his defense is "meh." Say all you want about Fickell, but Urban retained him. Seeing Roby on Sunday's this year has only validated my belief that last year the coaches lost the games for us. Should have never had such a huge cushion for the opposing WRs. Urban and Co. have not done that well in developing the secondary. I would also the same thing for the WRs but I think we are turning the page on that one.
In terms of recruiting, Urban has yet to land a top-flight Split End, TE, or QB (I'll wait til The Protoype hits his senior year before I judge him). He has done a fabulous job in recruiting the D-Line and we're finally seeing some LBers step up and play (I see you, Raekwon).
Need to beat MSU and scUM this year. Winning a B1G title is a must. Then we can hope to get into the playoffs.
My grading is harsh, I know, but I think Urban is a tad harsher on himself and his fellow coaches. No doubt in my mind he can turn that B- into an A+ here in no time.
I like!!! Now lets get Cager and call it a day at the WR position.
I feel like a commitment is coming today.
I've been very vocal w/ my belief that Pat Fitzgerald is completely over-rated.
Disgusting to see our "fans" leave with 7 minutes to go.
37-13 Ohio State. Zeke runs it for 117 yards.
Manny's. Best Buckeye bar in Manhattan. Great bartenders, great service and great selection of beer.
Disagree. Had 2nd and short and 3rd and short and never tried to attack the middle. To me, that was bad play calling. Should have kept it simple. I know the line is young but for us to succeed this year, we're gonna need to be able to run btw the tackles.
I thought the play calling was pretty weak. That 3rd down and short where Barrett optioned a flip for a loss was just a bad play call.
Which freshmen got PT yesterday?
Quebec deserves a team before Las Vegas.
Edit: but I ain't complaining...
Pat Fitzgerald is over-rated.
Good for Braxton.
I'm looking forward to seeing JT this year but I have to be honest: I haven't seen anything from him that shows me he can throw the deep ball. Eventually, without Braxton this year, we are going to have to pass the ball as teams are gonna load up in the box against us. If he can't pass the ball outside of screens and the intermediate routes, we are going to be in for a long season. But we'll see. The last couple years have been very kind to redshirt freshmen QBs. Go Bucks.
Holy moly...HOLY MOLY!!!!
Nuernberger at Kicker. Erick Smith & Raekwon on defense. Samuel & Dixon on offense.
Left Guard and a playmaking WR are on my wish list this year. We haven't had a WR since Teddy who could get solid separation from the DB. If we can get one this year, this will make the loss of the 4 starting offensive linemen and El Guapo sting a little less (but losing a player like El Guapo would hurt any team).
If you are gonna schedule UNLV, make it a home & home series. Just saying...
Tim Couch, is that you?
I got that framed hanging in my living room...For all my Ohio State hater friends to see....I embrace the hate.
