I hate that they beat us but I love their tenacity and fight! We could use some of their seemingly innate nasty they bring to the floor, but it just may be that is what we lack on this team. There is just "something" missing that holds this team back. Well, a great BIG would also help but we have been traveling that road for a while now.
One is enjoying a nice evening watching his school lose to his in-state rival (big brother) with his daughter. The other is seething at a loss to that same school and planning how to never, ever let that happen again! I am good with the difference!
KBD seems to be on the verge and then his playing time is reduced and his progrssion slows as well. So much potential and we already know the limits of the seniors. I get the loyalty to the older guys but it's past time for them to produce consistently. They don't do that and that's on them. Next man up should get his chance.
Joel Halle will be that 5th year senior, run stuffer, blocker eating d tackle that gets little recognition but contributes greatly to that unit. Coach Johnson will get Shutt and Holmes and and the other young guns ready to roll. Don't mess with a cohesive, highly functiong unit if you really don't need to.
Good game, 8 minutes w/o scoring ultimately did them in. Fun game to watch, about what we expected. After the gimme part of the season is over they are a little bit above average.
He said he was hurt and he wasn't gonna lie about it. Yep, made sense to me and then ........that ensued. Good luck Mike, you deserve it! Yep and that is exactly what I mean.
Who has it better than THE BUCKEYES........NOOOOOOOOBODY! Nuff said!
Well, little Jimmy Harbaugh, what do you say about Michigan academics now to your recruits? Or are you still steering them to general studies to get them in? Probably you didn't deceive, then you were merely mis-quoted.
Great job by these guys! Really fun to see the effort on the glass on both ends. I think Tate's unfailing effort on both ends of the floor may be the spark that ignites this team. Amir even had some moments and maybe that is the best we can expect from him.....so be it. Rotate the big boys to give some different looks and back to the guys who are working hard and getting better!
Stunned, completely shocked, right out of the blu, had no idea, flabbergasted, Auburn, bagmen.....well I'll be damned, never woulda thunk it, shocked.......really?
These kids are gathering more and more info every time they talk to these coaches. There are highs and lows, just like in every walk of life. Some get pumped up and commit and then doubt creeps in. It is a huge decision in their young lives with extremely large consequences. Wouldn't we all have doubts and second thoughts? Isn't the best time to look for a job is when you already have one? Coaches know a "commitment" is we're in their top 3 and plenty of work left till signing day. The plan works, the Buckeyes are Undisputed Champs. Enjoy the journey and let the kids do the same, after all it is theirs to take.
Well Damn, I believe this dog will be doing a little Duck huntin! Can't wait to show the "experts" just ONE MORE TIME! O H I O.......
X 2 parents or guardians =1.5 million I believe, still easily doable and better yet the right thing to do! Lead the right way and common sense will usually follow! Way to go Coach and Gene.....nicely done!
Co-ordinator #1 Be Agile
Co-ordinator #2 Be Mobile
Co-ordinator #3 Be Hostlile
That ought cost em about $3,000,000 right there. Especially being Michigan Men!
I really need one of those give-a-fuck-ometers! Now that's funny!
Braxton Miller deserves our faith, he has at least earned that much from Buckeye Nation. Great person, player and representative of The Ohio State University.......he has been and always will be a Great Buckeye! As they say " come on man".
I would take 22 like him, any time, any day, any where and take my chances!
That parochial pipeline to Notre Dame is very hard for kids to resist. Despite their issues with player assaults, cheating, imaginary girl friends and poor coachin decisions with tragic results.....hopefully for him it is the best decision. Brian Kelly..... is a whole different discussion now isn't he.......
Nicely done.....a step forward, watch the film, fix some things......not where they want to be but a young team on the rise. Fun times ahead! GO BUCKS
Too many great "athletes", not enough great basketball players....especially shooters/scorers. Craft and Scott are unable to shoot with any consistency at all. Sam Thompson/Lenzelle Smith same problem. Bigs....no hands, can't shoot, below average defenders. See a trend here, yeah we all do. It is painful to watch these kids play offense. MOST are trying hard, but it seems a poorly constructed group.
Well, unfortunately this is what we are. They try hard at times, they are not very good shooters either from the field or the foul line. Great defense at times, then give up threes or an uncontested lay up. A weak early schedule fooled everyone or at least most of us. Interior play is lacking. Pretty much sums up this team and what we are seeing most nights against big ten competition. Hoping for the best, but not really expecting much different than what we have been seeing of late. Hope I'm wrong.
Gotta get better at tackling and play smarter.....penalties are killing us.
