How about they all stay and y'all stfu!
Amazing to rewatch the game and pay attention to how good their defensive front really is. They were immediately in the backfield.
If JTs protection could have held up for just a second or two it seemed several receivers were open and could have been targeted.
I wonder if a lot of JTs hesitation is due to O Line's inability to slow/defend against simple shifts and blitz packages.
uh oh. someone may want to confiscate his clipboard for a few days
I love how he couldn't even finish off ripping his shirt in half.
He gets the rivalry. He will have a huge chip on his shoulder. Pumped to have him on the field.
I think the only reason it matters is if the buckeyes allow it to distract them - as is Harbaughs intent. A lot of talk prior to the game about who will start. Doesn't matter, shouldn't matter. Play our game and win THE game.
Not an excuse but a huge fact was Zeke being hurt last year. If he's healthy - we win.
Come November 26th not only students but the rest of the stadium needs to bring the noise!
How about Victor? I know that pass went incomplete but man that kid is going to be a stud
Buckeyes got back to fundamentals and it was fun to watch:
Less missed tackles
catching the football
JT on point.
We can do Better.
Season tickets in 17A. My group of four stood and cheered the entire game. I can't say the same about many others in our section. I expected, as usual, to be asked to sit down...At least that did not happen. Granted, the students do their part, plus. Fans, Alumni, we can do better, we can do much better. How many of you, who say the place was rocking have been to Madison or State College when the Buckeyes roll into town? I have not seen that kind of environment in the Horseshoe for quite a few years. I remember when Michigan used to come to down and the crowd would get a flag thrown on them for making TOO much noise, of course they no longer penalize a crowd for that, but we need to get back to that point.
We can help our Buckeyes win games!
We can do Better!
Im happy someone brought this subject up. Obviously atmosphere was something important to the bucks this week - McMillain, Tyquan Lewis and others actually attended the student Block O meeting asking for more intensity from the crowd and students a few days prior to Saturday- especially after the buckeyes witnessed the big time atmospheres at Penn State and Wisconsin. One area that we are most definitely losing in is our crowd - last night I felt like the crowd was OK at best but do agree it was the best of the year.
My seats are usually on the West side of the stadium - directly behind the OSU bench. Last night we switched it up and sat on the East side with a good view of our bench. It was amazing to see how EMPTY the club seats were directly behind the OSU bench. By the second quarter it appeared the club seats were about half empty.
My point is this; if we as fans have the right to hold this team to such high expectations and choose to publicly criticize their sometimes short-comings we as fans at least owe it to them when they ask for crowd intensity to deliver. Obviously a loud and intense stadium motivates and leads to a better performance from our team. We owe it to them. The shoe should be on FIRE when UM comes to town. If club seats people want to leave in the second quarter DONT COME- give your tickets to some fired up students who will appreciate the seats and contribute to the atmosphere.
Sad that this story will forever be attached to a buckeye great. Shame on the chargers for doing that to Bosa. Their voice in the media should solely be about how excited they are to have what could/would be one of the most dominating pass-rushers in the league and not pointing fingers at the Bosa camp for holding out/timeliness.
Shouldn't players in the draft have a "no thanks I'll pass" option when picked by certain teams? (May not help the Browns much)
Part of our disappointment as fans is that we are coming off a national championship in the first ever playoff era. Of course, anything short of making the playoffs is a let-down. How could it not be?
I'm disappointed... but not in missing the cut as one of the top 4 but after seeing the teams play in the conference championships yesterday its pretty evident that OSU could and would beat any of those teams. Sad to think our next game is our last with guys who will go down as legends like Zeke, Adolphus, possibly Bosa. hopefully they can rise above their own disappointment and wax the fighting irish. We sure will miss them next year.
I was fortunate to have a conversation with Washington after the 2014 UM game when we lost Barrett. He simply said "Believe in Cardale Jones." Washington is definitely one of the unsung heroes on D and absolutely one of my favorite Buckeyes.
More so that he's a good kid "the type of player other guys want to line up with" that speaks volumes about Myers and also the type of recruits this coaching staff wants.
Gary, Bosa, Bosa - Unlikely, but possible.
Fantastic find on the overhead shot. So pumped when i saw the block, but had no idea he actually took out 2 Linebackers!
This play is going to down as one of my all-time favorites. Rivals Borens hit on Gardner against Michigan a few years back.
Vonn Bell had an awesome game as well. Almost seemed like he had a personal vendetta against Amari Cooper. Every time he caught a pass it seemed like Bell was right there.
Larry Johnson would be an excellent option. He as a coach has got to be thrilled for 2 reasons
1 Coming to Ohio State.
2 Urban and Vrabel no longer flipping his best recruits.
