True especially for a FR. (Munger and Hill are redshirts right? cant wai to see them) but i thought Urvz said Holmes was making a run to replace Spence?
2 things stick out to me 1. Johnny Dixon and Erik Smith are both listed 3rd String especially Dixon getting to play with "the men" early in off seson and 2nd. No Jaylon Holmes on the depth chart, thought he'd be on depth chart atleast
i dont get it. OSU has one bad year and suddenly were our hate meter goes from 60%- 99%. What is it? we go from TP to Braxton and thats the end of good QB's at OSU? NO yeah JT is ahead of PT schedule due to Millers Injury but its not the end of the world its NEXT MAN UP! also if JT had went ti Bama, LSU or Texas A&M he'd some how be on the heisman watchlist for 2014. Wanna know how were gonna move the ball? were gonna move it the BUCKEYE WAY! Fast aggressive and every damn time we touch it! if we win out and win in playoffs nobody can ever say somthing about us again, theyd have nothing to criticize we would have done it with our backup QB. so get ready yall this year is gonna be hell in the media stand point if we win big and keep winning with our QB the media will do everything they can to try and sway any possitives from our season out of fear of us winning with a back up.
just cant wait till ESPN has to shutdown for a week at the end of the year due to everyone needing surgery to remove their foots from their own mouth!
still have yet to see EZE Sp. Teams hit, and Marcus Hall's monster block... 2 of the biggest hits all year
common sense would lead you to believe that with our second string QB starting getting wins wouldnt be as easy as if XBraX was was starting still therefore we shouldnt drop at all in the polls for winning. BUT since were dealing with bias against the B1G id say dont pay attention to polls until BOWL WEEK because it will all be way too disapointing for anyone with common sense
If you think about it theres not as mich seperation as media hypes would want you to believe. Somehow the Pac 12 surpassed us with 2 teams being good and faultering in big games. The SEC's top 3 teams (Bama, AU, LSU) went 1-2 in the Bowl games last year. with LSU' 7 point win over IOWA was the only win. We wont surpass the SEC this year, but gain ground we can. IF Wisky beats LSU, That would give them some credibility in the national stage. If MSU beats Oregon then People would have to recognize power in the B1G, Also the teams playing ND this year have got to get a convincing win. I'd say that at the end of the year OSU, MSU, WISKY, IOWA, NEBRASKA (PSU could be but without bowl game there nothing to show for it) will all be ranked, not trying to get too far ahead of myself here but its very possible this is the year we re-assert ourselves we all want it and we all NEED it. also the B1G's recruiting can take off after winning a few big games.

any word on what went on? more detail into the supposed recruiting violations?
ichigan, funnest team to beat on
i think he's setting up brick walls with scUM logo on them then runs through them wearing OSU gear with Headphones on with Coombs coming through them! or atleast thats what i think a Birms "sweet" definition would be
who has been taking the most reps with the 1's Apple or Reeves? also Dante Booker is someone i could see in time getting on the 2 deep, his athletic ability and raw power would be a huge lift and energy boost
I think were about to see a very DANGEROUS, a very HUNGRY football team! i dont care that we lost XBraX anymore (of course id rather have him in there) he will be missed on football field, but NOT on the sideline where JT will have him in his ear before every drive telling him look for this make sure you do that, that was a great job but make sure next time u make this adjustment... JT has a long ways to go to reach his possible potential vut the people around him will make it a smooth transition for him. Were gonna see alot of PISSED OFFF players this year, eith missing one player and the team gets written off all together by the national media? Im excited i have a feeling about this team that i havent had in a long while. Im glad we play Navy and Va Tech to start off the season, good competition for a young QB to get his feet wet. Also with VA techs Defense we will get to see how the young leader does under a bit of pressure and also how this Defense has improved, we might need to lean on our D in some games and with VA Techs Defense we might need to lean on our D to make the offense as comfortable as possible!!! CANT WAIT!!!!!!
Also is Samuel really faster than Dontre ive heard it before but do we have clear cut proof?
i see diamond package in our near future. Barrett with Wilson to the left Marshall to the right and Samuel behind them all for the option pitch.... ahhh the days of speed
trickery galore awaits
also dont be suprised if marshall does let one fly thru the air. it would catch many off gaurd and could leave others like Samuel, or Wilson wide open downfield
ah! gotchya thanks for the insight
Kosta Karageorge? who dat? walk on?
i agree with everything here... i have planned to put 100 on every game this year since last season ended but with Millers injury for MSU game, "The Game" and B1G championship i will be betting 500$ considering for MSU game if they stay unbeaten Vegas could very well have us listed as underdogs there for Much higher payout with 500$ after we put them back in their place! GO BUCKS
in my mind, losing Miller will make our team not better (of course) but could give our whole team a boost! at times last season Miller took the game in his hands and the team just coasted along. With Miller gone the whol team has to know they all need to step up their game in order to succeed, they hear all this nonsense and feel like the college world is writing them off over 1 player and to me that makes the whole team plays with a bigger chip on their shoulder than they thought they had before. last year was the chase this year its time to prove we are more than 1 player and we are thr best team in the NATION LETS GO BUCKS!!! also i cant wait to see the defense we need them more than ever in order to prove we belong in the final 4
All im hoping for out of him is ball control and staying healthy. He isnt the runner XBraX is, SO WHAT? Who is? They say he doesnt have the arm strength that XBraX and Jones have, SO WHAT. We wont need to throw 60 yards deep if our Defense does their job. Intermediate routes will win us games. Screen Passes, short crossing routes. distributing to the TE's the whole game can open up. If we have the playmakers we think we do then they will make plays but we're gonna need the Hustle, and Determination to extend plays. This has gotta be a physical YAC Offense this year in order to be successful. Our Defense has to be the leader this year with all the inexperienced/unproven players on offense the Defense has to give us the opportunity to succeed while our Offense also goes through growing pains
Does Miller possibly take a med redshirt?
If in fact ot os season ending, does Miller take a redshirt and come back next year?
all we need out of JT this year is ball control, just minimize turnovers and stay healthy. The biggest test will be Nov. 8 against MSU hopefully he can stay healthy and grow each game before then. This will be one heck of a rollercoaster ride for him especially if that OLine isnt settled. We need our defense to step up more than ever and we need our vets on offense to guide him and make things easier, its never easy replacing a starter but we gotta make it easy for the youngster, bare with him, dont lose hope because there will be growing pains.
Good to see Jaylyn Holmes and the others becoming true Buckeyes on the field, im excited for what Holmes may be able to learn behind our starters this kid has mad potential.
i kept "The Game" out of it bcuz i wasnt talking regular season games the last game is what people remember and its bowls that people want to acknowledge. I do include the Gator Bowl because of how badly everyone played but it was a Championship Bowl Game, you dont think Braxton doesnt remember those games? or The Gator Nation somehow forgot about that game? he has yet to win a championship in both B1G and Nationally, im sure if he wins the NC this year it will mean more to him than anyone because he hasnt had that success yet. Im not saying hes no good im stating it would mean more and give him that level of accomplishment that hes missing.
