Nice win. Love our offense but our defense...yikes!
I feel like we might see something similar to last year in that last year our defense could keep us in any game but our offense kept any opponent in the game. This year our offense will keep us in any game but our defense can keep our opponent in any game.
And this is the first year of a completely new scheme and some fans already want a coaching change up because we weren't able to get to silver bullets level in one season.
He was the LBs coach since 2004. He was the one teaching the LBs everyday.
LBs have had it tough but of all the LB coaches in college Fickell's total body of work might be the best. There have been a lot of good LBs to come from his tutelage.
I'll buy their association with football. But as a student I can tell you that Communications major is regarded as a joke major on campus. That is just the reputation it has.
I don't still don't get black uniforms. We are scarlet and grey so why do we need black?
Ton of offensive talent. Still quite a bit of work to do on defense but these guys will be exciting to watch.
It is more of the recent development on this site where people get down voted for stating their opinion that isn't OSU is the greatest. It's something that needs to change, I'm tired of seeing people getting down voted just because someone doesn't agree with them.
Ultimately whether they are good or not is not up to us so enjoy their pitifulness while you can. I have the opinion that one good hire is all it may take for them to be right back in the mix in two or three years. Whether that will happen remains to be seen but for now enjoy the moment.
I also don't think you should be down voted for that comment. It's his opinion guys. I found it entertaining but I wouldn't say it was classy. This is like the rip his fucking head off chant. Some like it, some find it crass. It's an OPINION Down Voters, and one he is entitled to.
3 things really
1. Our pass defense regressed and was worse than most of us realized this was the biggest reason
2. Braxton had his efficiency drop-off that has happened at the end of every season which is why our offense stuttered for a period
3. Borges whether playing mind games or something decided to throw everything he could possibly think of at us which he decided not to do their entire season.
I was referring more to the fans than to the game itself. I'm from Toledo the battleground city and most TTUN fans offer little to no resistance. I'm deprived of all the trash talk/banter that usually goes along with the rivalry. I can say anything and they usually respond "yeah probably"
Unfortunately in the eyes of many of their fans they are not playing for a whole lot. Most of them are just waiting for the season to end so they can being the search for a new coach. While I absolutely love the where TTUN is at it isn't as fun when most fans have already admitted defeat and many say they won't even bother tuning in. Hate week is feeling pretty one-sided with the other side so apathetic.
I just can't wait to see what Giddens can do. It has been too long since we had a good big man.
I agree. Their defense is much better than they are given credit for. It will be in the top 3 defenses we have faced so far this year. After MSU that would not intimidate me, but given how IU's defense seemed to bottle up our running game for a time I'm a little nervous now.
I like it. 300 is a good number historically speaking.
Best catch I have ever seen
Trey came to play
The most irritating part of the music to me was IMO it was poorly implemented. They would blast an awkward random seven second cut of a song in between plays which did not work with a hurry up offense. There were times where the quality was very poor and slightly painful to listen to. If they are going to play songs I'm fine with that but play them during longer intervals like timeouts or something. As much as I like crazy train I didn't appreciate hearing Ozzy laugh, two baseline notes, and then cut out.
I'm being honest someone needs to explain it to me. What is the fascination with black jerseys? I love our jerseys. I think scarlet and grey looks perfect and way better than black jerseys ever could. Is there a particular reason so many want to see black jerseys? What instances did people think black jerseys looked better than ours?
Marotti will put 15+ pounds on the kid in the offseason then we will see if he is still undersized.
Cameron Johnston is why you recruit Australia.
From the perspective of the players on the field I'm pretty sure they hear "BOO" not "Coaches we disagree with the calls you have been making"
