Your opinion vs mine.... We are both entitled ours. I don't believe OHio State failed by any means, but I won't say they played their "A" game. If that was their "A" game, then I smell trouble on the horizon.
Ohio State linebackers have struggled for over 2 years, and he is the position coach. Yesterday was an improvement in overall linebacker play, but there were still many moments where getting off blocks, over-running the play, not knowing where the ball was, was still a major problem, IMO. Navy shouldn't have rushed for over 200 yards. I long for the days when Ohio State linebackers made plays at the line of scrimmage. Yesterday there were too many plays where the Navy ball carrier didn't meet an OSU linebacker, until he was 5 yards past the LOS.
What gets adjusted to get improvement?
Agree, at the Kwon comment. I'm ready to see what he can do.
We played Navy a few years ago
we may play Navy in the future
We have seen Navy's offense before.
We might see Navy's offense sometime in the future.
We do have delusional fans.
I think there quite a few linebackers in college football with better instincts and better ability to get off blocks than Perry or Grant. I think Perry and Grant improved over last year, but still not " OSU good". Perry lines up 8 yards from the line of scrimmage and still had difficulty figuring out where the ball was...... A lot of Navy's rushing yards happened because the linebackers failed to make a play.
That was a TD.
I was watching an Ohio State/Urban Meyer show on Fox Sports Ohio late last night. It had interviews with Meyer, and also had commentary from a panel of three former Buckeye greats.... Earle Bruce, John Cooper and Chris "Beannie" Wells. John Cooper seemed really excited for th e season to start. He had a comment that had me laughing..... "Ohio State has a definite edge in Special Teams. Navy can't compete with our Special Teams, though I'd bet Ohio State doesn't even punt in the ball game, there will be no reason to." Cooper went on to pick Ohio State to win 48-10. Earl Bruce was a bit more reserved picking the Buckeyes to win something like 27-24. You could tell Cooper was excited, and feeling confident.
Memo to coach Herman:
When we play Rutgers, throw a lot of passes to whoever is running routes against #15 (CB) for the Scarlett Knights. The kid has no coverage skills, and gets burnt because he buys every single fake move the WR's are giving him.
When can we stop calling Washington State's offense "Air Raid"?
Washington State will struggle to win more than 3 games, their QB is not very good...... Actually he is awfull.
"Mike Leach doesn't care that his QB throws an interception" FOX Sports color analyst.
So, according to the Fox Sports color analyst, Mike Leach doesn't care about giving up 78 yard td passes...... Hmmm. I guess Mike Leach doesn't ever want to win a game.
If Ohio State had its Spring Game at the Georgia Dome, it may be half full.
Buttgers strikes fast, 78 yards td pass.
I guess Washington State forgot to tell its fans what time the game started. That stadium may be 30% full, at best.
Minnesota has it in the bag. time to watch Rutgers.
I think Rutgers is going to get their asses handed to them.
After week one, can anyone really say that there isn't at least 25 teams better than South Carolina? Really hard to tell, nobody knows, so polls are really just opinions.
In reality a 4 team playoff, isn't a wide enough sample of teams to ensure that the best teams get a chance to play for the title. IMO,a 16 team playoff is the only way to go.
Their fans want to Fire Fickel. They are lucky that they are in the same division as Tennessee and Florida. Their defense will look good at least 2 games this year.
Think we can Bo Wallace off the Heisman Trophy watch list.
