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.
Actually Braxton's upper body mechanics are almost flawless. Tight compact release. Releases above the ear. His only mechanical issue he has ever had was his feet. He would not set them properly therefore causing inaccuracy in his throws. He's pretty much fixed that issue now as well. The only things I don't like about Braxton is because of his outstanding athleticism he tends to take off earlier than he should. He also still needs a little work on presnap recognition. As always Go Bucks
I think a good helping of EzE and Rod Smith between the tackles will alleviate any concerns regarding bad weather. Plus a dash of Jalin and Dontre on screen passes/jet sweeps. As always Go Bucks
He's is making it past his second progression which is really hard for a true freshman to do.... I saw him look off the safety a couple times also. He's throwing great balls too. I know why Urban wanted this kid so bad... I'm surprised he hasn't started sooner.
Yah I wondered the same thing about Samuel. Its good for him to get experience and touches don't get me wrong. I was just worried about him getting hurt on dumb play with the game well in hand. Going by what we can judge which is production in game then I think you have to go with Samuel. I prefer rod smith, but he has only had 5 touches all year with two touchdowns. Its hard to judge him with such little evidence to go on. I have noticed though that they have utilized him a lot for the designed qb runs and pass protection. He is probably the best blocker of three. Zeke is really good too. Its a hard one to judge really how things have played out so far. I would say as a Rod Smith fan though I would really like to see him get more touches and establish a rhythm and see what he can do. As always go bucks
My only issue is everybody claims the the other two are head and shoulders above Rod Smith. Rod had three touches yesterday. 2 went for touchdowns. Whenever we go in into pass pro they bring him in for pass blocking instead of the other two. The other two have gotten significantly more touches than Rod has and yet we write Rod off even though we really don't know what he is capable of since such limited actual touches. Now I'm not saying EZE and Samuel aren't great players because they are. I just don't see how Rod can be written off when he really has been given much of chance to do anything this season. He's got a total of 5 touches in 3 games and 2 touchdowns. As always Go Bucks
