It sounds like Torrance will do well being around a coach like Urban Meyer. As long as he focus' on the right thing, such as school, family and football he will be fine. I am glad he got a taste of real competition while at The Opening. It should prepare him and propel him to excel. He is a solid recruit for us.
First, because he has been around college programs his whole life I am sure he understands how the game works. His Dad also understands the "college game" and wouldn't want to lead his son astray. Also, keep in mind that Gibson could play a receiver position and with his height it could be an amazing position for him. (see Jalin Marshall) So, yes he has other options outside of Ohio State that could provide an easier path to starting, but will they lead him to a National Championship. If he is good he will play pure and simple.
I read that his parents bought plane tickets to this game. He may end up watching the game with his Mom and Dad.
Why is he only a 3 star? He is tall, athletic, which seems to me is a 4 star rating at least.
See what happens when scheme matches talent. Last year we had the talent but the scheme was all wrong. This year we can see the results of how coaching can have a direct impact on each player.
Even if this is true and we all know that he wouldn't be in football shape. However, just his presence could impact an opponents blocking scheme. This could free up Bosa, Bennett and the others.
It could be the B1G Championship game, Bowl game and National Championship game. This way he has been out for the whole regular season.
While the head coach salaries are important it would be interesting to review the assistant coaches salaries. UFM took less in salary when he arrived so that he could hire and pay the best assistant coaches. If you have to pay the guys spending all the time with the players and who are recruiting the players it will make a difference in the long run.
Well that sucks
That's the only thing I use on my dogs. We have 3 bottles in the pantry.
That is funny. Thanks for the info.
Everyone keeps talking about JT's arm strength. He threw the ball 45 yards in the air to Devon Smith. I will take that accuracy over arm strength every time. JT is really developing as a QB and the team now understands what it takes to win a game of this magnitude. We won't lose again this year.
Not a bad insurance policy

I was talking to a friend yesterday about his progressions. Braxton goes through two receivers and then runs but JT gets through all of the receivers first before taking off. Man, with this offense and his skill set when he is a senior watch out.
UFM tells recruites, "Your next 4 years will set up the next 40 years." I hope Noah can find a solution to his challenges and achieve his goals.
If you told me that 2 weeks ago your starting, Heisman Trophy hopeful of a QB, would go down with a season ending injury. Then tell me that a red shirt freshman, who has had a torn ACL and not started since high school, would step in with new running backs behind him and a whole new offensive line. Finally, you would say that the offensive line was awful the first half and we couldn't get anything going until the second half. At the end of the day he was 12 of 15 with a 80 yard bomb and made only a single interception. Personally, I will take that type of performance. He's the real deal and all he needs is some experience.
Good job JT, good job!
The dude is a cool customer. I am almost glad that they are opening in Baltimore. Get away from the hyper bowl of Cbus.
- We will have a better defense this year. More pressure on the QB, tighter coverage and therefore more turnovers. (Helps the offense out and puts them in better positions)
- We have 7 players that run a 4.4 or better. (Let the play makers make plays)
- JT is a more accurate passer (Guys won't need to be as open and he the distributor)
- Slew of good running backs (Different looks and strengths, reduce stress on the QB)
Ultimately, we won't need to score 45 each game, but maybe 30.
This could be a blessing in disguise and the right man to take over the reins.
I think we won't be scoring 45 points per game but there is no reason to think 35 is out of the question. JT has been in the program for a over a year. He has been running scout against a very good defensive line and improved defense the last few months. He is from a strong high school program and is a natural leader. Yes, he will make some mistakes but I expect to see a freshman+ type of player. The fortunate thing is we have 10 days before the first game which is huge for his development.
I didn't expect Braxton to run that much this year anyway. So, if JT is accurate in his passing and we wanted to get the ball to our play makers anyway, all he really needs is confidence.
As a fan group we need to stay positive and stand behind our team. Look at how Braxton is handling this as an example.
Personally, I am very impressed that Braxton is graduating in December. Good for him!
I say get him here for the Virginia Tech game. He can then see both teams he likes and will experience a night game. After we win he will be a lock. On another note, he seems like a really good kid with a concern about his schooling, trying to do things the right way and a good support system. While I hope he chooses TOSU, I am rooting for him wherever he ends up.
Who Think is a Korean baseball player on the Yankees. I will be having a talk with my proof readers.
Mr. Deezy you are correct in saying that it could help his son. My point was more from the standpoint of a salaried coach who if they are able to secure a recruit could benefit monetarily. Other than helping his son, I think Mr. Elliott has seen and believes what UFM is selling. He is putting himself out there saying, "ask me about my experience". I don't know if they have utilized parents like this in the past but they should find one from each class if they can.
