It's all about pad level - low pads win. Throw in the techniques from a high level educator like Johnson, swim, bull, punch, and you've got yourself a monster. Since you can't teach motor -- BOOM! 3Just watched his tape - wow, he's got a serious case of the quicks with a nice dose of nasty. Welcome to Buckeye Nation.
UV for bald audacity. LOVE IT!!
If the players at TTUN had a motivational/inspirational guy anywhere near Urban or Jerry Kill, using the same assistants and the same game plan they would blow people away. Those kids never had their heads right this year.
I would love to see each of these match-ups - especially if they were played at NFL stadiums in and around B1G country in December or January. It would be nice to play a bowl game in our back yard instead of games that are essentially home games for the opposition. Imagine Ohio State vs Alabama in Green Bay in January. (or Buffalo, Minnesota, Chicago, Indy, Philly, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburg, New York, or St. Louis...) Vince Lombardi would be proud.
Fat Urkel Muck Farts - the worst.
I was shocked to see only 62% voted yes. But reading over the comments I have to respect the opinion that one game is not enough. That's fair. Good news: Now they know they what they can do; a new standard has been set. #dominant
Is it true that he is in the running for National COY? Wouldn't that be a kick if he were to win National COY while not winning his own conference COY. Ohio State not having a B1G COY since Earle Bruce in 1979 is criminal.
Carter's Bull Rush is second to none. #PurePower
I'll take that one step farther - if Oregon is the only team in the top 4 to lose Ohio State will still not make it as a two loss Arizona team with two wins over Oregon will jump a 12-1 Ohio State team.
Yesterday I likely would have called you a conspiracy theorist - but after seeing what the committee did with TCU, Arizona, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Nebraska this week I think the message is clear. The B1G has no respect, repeat - no respect within the committee and the B1G Champion will suffer for that.
Thanks for doing the math, Chris. Wow, Urban knows how to recruit and develop talent. I hate to jump too far ahead, but next year is going to be crazy as we will be bringing so much skill AND experience back on both sides of the ball to support Braxton's Senior season. This year, as great as I expect it to continue to be, is still just the warm up. It's good to be a Buckeye.
Freedom Flask - Thanks for the link. "Take your booze anywhere you chooze." What a great advertising line! Seems Wunder took that a bit too literally.
lonelydrunk a soul must be to run on the field at an Ohio State Football game and get tackled by Anthony Schlegel...
Fixed that for ya.
Wow, nobody is commenting on the offensive line. Silence must be the best compliment you can give your O-linemen because if we're not talking about them, they must have had a good night. I was impressed by the holes for the running backs and the protection for our QB. Every game is showing improvement. Bring on the Conference!
FTN70, that kind of sentiment about Braxton will never be popular here, but I think you may be right. In 2015, Braxton may need to take a page from Antwaan Randle El's book and switch from QB to WR in order to have a long successful career in the NFL. And if I am correct about JT's growth this year, then the 2015 season may be a good chance to test that theory and get both JT and Braxton on the field together. Think about it - Braxton taking a WR screen or a jet sweep where he can choose to run or pass - how do you defend that?
Kind of a shame we have a cap on DVs, this one might have set a record.
Which makes me wonder why we schedule Navy. We don't get any credit for beating them, they are awkward and somewhat dangerous to play. If we had Georgia Tech on our schedule I would see the point in playing Navy, but... Now that it is behind us, GO BUCKS!
I believe his extraordinary running ability has hindered his development as a passing QB.
I was just talking about this with my son-in-law tonight. I believe there is something to this. UV for this Baddog.
"Things are OK," Price said. "Fans, we're going to be OK."
I agree. One word: Warinner.
The question this year is defense. If the defense is half as good as I expect them to be they will be twice as good as they were last year.
I see Mr Sprinkle having a very difficult discussion with Urban in the near future. How he responds to that conversation and how Urban feels about what he hears and sees will likely be what determines this young man's future at OSU. I personally trust Urban Meyer will do the right thing regardless of the outcome. It is times like these where boys can become men. I wish Mr Sprinkle the best. I'd give him the same advice I gave my daughter when she faced her "time to grow up" moment outside the family - be open and painfully honest and do not under any circumstance complain, deflect, whine, or drone on. Good luck Mr Sprinkle.
^ ^ +1 for the sarcasm font.
Great read Kyle!
