My favorite recruit from last years class. I read an article recently on the ozone where receivers coach Zac Smith mentioned he had trimmed back down to 225 from 240 when he came in. I really think he has the potential to be a very physical outside receiver or mismatch in the slot similar to a young Anquan Boldin. That is my hope at least lol. Either way we have a lot of young talent in the WR room and as Urban Meyer said, "the future is bright at Ohio State." As always Go Bucks
The running back position has always been my favorite position (grew up a Barry Sanders fan and of course Eddie while he was here). I have to say I love how the Bucks have recruited the position since Urban has arrived. Even more how they have developed the prospects. Sit back and enjoy the ride. As always Go Bucks
Pass and Mclwain from PA were my two favorite qb's of this class. The staff seems to have really put the push on Gauruntano though. That"s fine with me too. He seems pretty good in his own right. Urban knows his qb's much better than I though. So I will go with who he thinks is best lol.
Ok maybe I looked at it wrong. Thank you for the info guys
The first game I ever attended. Been a fan since the 90's. Took me over 20 years to make a game i started being a fan. I will say I was surprised by the environment as mentioned. Thanks for the info. As always Go Bucks
Right on guys.
Thanks guys. @4DORR good game with the 8 Ball lol
Thank you sir.
Stan Drayton is listed as the assistant head coach last time I checked. I would assume him.
I've always wanted him as our back in this class outside of Patrick. I like Harris don't get me wrong, but I really like Scott's running style. I would be happy with whoever we pull in this class, but I hope Urban Can pull out his spatula and flip this kid. Go Bucks.
If you have student tickets and don't have a student ID what do you need to do to get in the game without a problem? My buddy got some free student tickets and we are driving in from Indiana and don't want to run into any problems. Thanks for any info guys and as always GO Bucks.
I would also add Brad Smith. He played for Missouri under Pinkel. One the best dual threat guys of the 2000's. He was from Youngstown I believe.
I don't mind if he plays either one. He looks like an intriguing prospect at either position. He's my favorite recruit of this class and I'm glad we got him to flip. His versatility will pay dividends in the end I believe. Go Bucks
Best of luck to Rod I think he will find a place in the NFL if he can keep his off the field problems handled. Always been a favorite of mine, but when I think of Rod I am reminded of a line from one of my favorite movies. "There is nothing more sad in the world than wasted talent." Hopefully he can move on in his life even if it doesn't involve football and be successful. As always Go Bucks
I like Brandon McIlwain from PA as well. I wonder how PSU's pursuit of Haskins factors into his decision. I personally liked him better than Haskins from a highlight film standpoint. Reminds of A Russell Wilson type how he plays the game. We have offered him too. Guarantano is a nice a prospect as well. If I had my choice I would take McIlwain though although I won't complain if either of these three commit. Birm or Mike do we have a shot with McIlwain from PA? Also as a follow up what about Xavier Gaines? I've heard he is all FSU.
2.) Mississippi State
3.) Notre Dame
5.) Ohio State/Michigan State -->(whoever wins the head to head will be in IMO)
We ran 2-3 screens that got blown up for no gain or minimal yardage. The two picks came off of a slant and short dig route. All of his completions were hit percentage short yardage throws that weren't working. He was missing on his deep balls too. JT was having a bad game. Just face it we had a bad game overall stemming from multiple different things. Play calling was the most minimal problem we had Saturday night.
Yah a lot of those carries were not on designed qb runs. They were on broken down plays or where JT may the correct/bad read on a zone a read play. 20 Carries was not by design last night with JT.
Yah JT struggled all night with pressure in his face. He missed at least 3-4 deep balls if i recall correctly. One to Thomas on a wheel route, one to Devin, and one to Dontre. I think one more but, I can't be sure. His two interceptions were also bad reads on zone blitzes. Play calling was not the culprit tonight. It was definitely poor execution. Its a growing moment for JT. He will learn and continue to grow. I'm just glad we pulled out the win. The defense really came through in the second half minus a few mental errors on penalties and missed assignments. As always Go Bucks.
I haven't seen a sack like that in a long time. Joey Bosa has lived up to the hype since coming here last year out high school. He truly is a boss on the football field. Definitely got extra wasted watching that second half. Either way great win. Gutsy effort. As always Go Bucks. Looking forward to stomping Illinois next week.
It amazes me how short sighted we get as fans sometimes. Lets look at it this way... JT has played one semi-good defense this year and we lost at home in the home opener. Braxton Miller won 24 straight games in a row at one point and won the big ten player of the year 2 years in a row before injury. Braxton Miller bailed us out of multiple games when our defense was horrid and he had very minimal talent around him outside of Hyde. Now I really do like JT and love how he is playing right now, but we still have a lot of games to go before making all these judgments. As far as Gibson or Haskins goes look at it this way. One don't compare them to players currently playing because we don't know how they are going to pan out in college. Secondly Meyer has consistently pursued Gibson even after having Burrow commit. That is very telling of how he feels about Gibson's talent. I trust Urban's judgement in that dept considering who he has coached at the QB position. People forget when Urban got to Utah Alex Smith the former number 1 overall pick in the NFL draft was a 3rd or 4th string wide receiver on that team. Within two years he became a pretty good quarterback. I like both of these kids and would take either one of their talents. If we don't get them Urban has showed he will still bring in a talented qb in their place. As always go Bucks
I really like this kids game. Low center of gravity and good balance when running. That is why it is hard to tackle him for the defenders in the highlights above. Nice jump cut ability when he makes moves. Love the burst out of those cuts to get to top speed as well. I would take him. I would say by the film though he's probably closer to 5'9 205 range though. Still a good offer in my opinion.
