Why do we have these conversations every season and what does it really matter? Fans support teams, not coferences(except for SECFans, whose teams can't beat Bama). If the team you root for wins then you're happy, if they don't you're not. Oh tOSU lost, but Northwestern was kick-ass today, said no tOSU fan ever. We all saw what happened in the Bowl Games last season, so for those who believe the conference is weak, just watch the Bowl replays on Youtube.
They moved Elflein to Center on that play, not Price...
The Jeff Greene ship has sailed....
RunTMC, a natural receiver with tOSU speed and great ball skills. Watch out for him, I see the constant questions about Jeff Greene, he's a senior and if he were going to be a factor that question would still be being asked, would it?
Kirk Herbstreit is simply a man trying to do a job as best he can. He calls it as he sees it, which is what "the world-wide leader" pays him to do. He's not a tOSU cheerleader and he shouldn't be, if that were the case he should be on one of the tOSU networks. He tries to be objective in his evaluations, except where Marcus Mariota was concerned, give honest analysis. He was the very first CFB analyst to say that Cardale Jones wasn't a typical third-stringer and would play well. I respect Herbie and believe he's as good as they have on that network.
Run TMC, next man up!! Time to go get it!!!
As is typical of Message Board threads we go around the block to get next door. That McShay is a tool and his analysis doesn't mean shit is my main point. I was asked considering the injury to Treadwell who would I rather have as #1. I answered. My comparison to Cooper was to show the difference in this year's #1 WR as opposed to the immediate predecessor, not as a comparison to the best ever.
Your agreement with my opinion isn't a requirement, I was asked for it and I gave it. I know JuJu Smith isn't draft eligible, but I believe he will be the best WR in CFB this season, inclusive of Adoree Jackson. Nowhere in my comment did I say that Michael Thomas isn't talented, I said he isn't the #1 WR prospect in CFB and I don't believe he is. Others may disagree and that is their prerogative.
Zach's an UFM guy and Earle Bruce's Grandson, I believe they'll let him know when he's ready to make a move. He's yet to be an OC and until he operates in that space, I don't believe he'll go anywhere. He won't make a lateral move, because he's got it great here. Best facilities, best tradition, best recruits, and best HC in CFB. Why would he leave at this point, to be the HC at an FCS school or a mid-major? Doesn't make career sense.
Disagreement doesn't conflate to anger. Given Treadwell's injury, I'd rather have Mike Williams from Clemson, with Doctson from TCU being a close second. I also like the Boyd kid from PItt a lot. I believe when all is said and done JuJu Smith from USC will be the best of the lot this year. I'm a Mike Thomas fan and have been since he and Cardale enrolled, but McShay blowing smoke up asses should always be taken for what it is, a desperate attempt to remain relevant. Mike will have a huge year this year and be a first round pick, but I don't believe he's #1.
Why does anyone really care what Todd McShay thinks? Would this even be a topic if Michael Thomas wasn't rated #1? McShay and Kiper are snake-oil salesman and strictly products of the hype machine at the "world-wide leader" no one in the NFL affords them any credibility. I will guarantee right here and now that no Player Personnel Director in the NFL has Michael Thomas as the #1 WR on his Board right now. He had a good, not great season and made a fabulous catch in the Sugar Bowl, but there are better WR's in CFB. He's not in the same league with Amari Cooper, who was last year's #1 WR, in any measurable. I'm as big a Buckeye fan as anyone, but this premise is just ridiculous.
If and when Marshon Lattimore finally gets healthy, watch out!!
Geez, can it just be September 7th already!! Is it really tOSU Message Board worthy where this young man ends up? The Buckeyes are stacked at the RB position for the next 5 years at least, including 3 of the top 10 RB's in the 2016 Class. He wasn't good enough to even get an offer in HS, there's definitely no interest now. He wasn't playing at Iowa, why would he think of coming to tOSU?
Then what's the point of this thread?
The one constant in all of these Camp Vid's is Run TMC making plays, the greatest football mind ever Mr. Al Davis always said, speed always makes the biggest difference.
I like Run TMC because he's a natural receiver he has tOSU speed, with him its just a matter of getting an opportunity. On Defense, I still have faith in Marshon Lattimore UFM has said on several occasions that his only issue is his health. He's just snakebit. When he finally gets his chance watch out.
I'll admit I was one of those, but I believe the addition of Coach Ash allowing Fickell to scale back some things helped a lot.
I feel really bad for Marshon and I hope it isn't serious, hamstrings are lingering and problematic. On the bright side though, Run TMC popping hamstrings can't be a bad thing!
All of reports on Michael Hill have been positive his problem has been injuries. He came in from HS with a broken hand.
You can't expect 17 and 18-year-olds to behave with the maturity and wisdom of 40-year-olds, especially pampered and entitled 17 and 18-year-olds. They live in a world in which very few people say no to anything they want or do. If the young man is reconsidering tOSU that's a good thing. There is nothing that I read in the reports of his behavior that is egregious enough not to consider him for inclusion in the 2016 class. UFM isn't a petty person and will have no problem forgiving, even if not forgetting.
Torrance Gibson and Noah Brown are Oxen out there!!
Don't count on that ever happening!!
I hate to be "that guy" but Trevonne Boykin did the same thing at TCU and it worked out pretty good for him, so it's not like this move is unprecedented. With all the talent already at WR, where exactly is he supposed to fit and if he's better than McLaurin, Clark,Campbell, Dixon, Hill, and Stump whom we are constantly told are all stud players then does that say about recruiting?
The whole Freshman requesting "retired" numbers thing bothers me. What's the point of going through the pomp and ceremony of retiring a number in the first place? Have we gotten to the point that we're afraid to tell these players no? Just do what the Oakland Raiders do and don't retire any numbers.
Typical 'coachspeak' interview where he speaks a lot of words and says absloutely nothing. A complete waste of time, he offers no insight into his thinking or his role. We already know UFM is the "decision maker-in-chief" and ultimately the choice is his. Beck is the QB Coach, what does he see in practice and in the room that will shape his decision? What the strengths and weaknesses that he sees in each guy? Those are questions that he can and should answer without equivocation.
Indiana is always a struggle, no matter how good a team the Bucks have.
