Going to be tough with his QB committing to A&M and recruiting Lindsey to join him.

well put-i posted one day this week that JT/Cardale, the Slobs, Zeke, Vannett, Thomas and Braxton is more talent on offense than 99% of CFB (might be 100%, but TCU has a lot back).

Depth will come into play if/when the D isn't doing it's job 9/10 times.  Rewatch the NCG.  If the Hokies don't have quality depth across the front 3 or 4 (whichever set they choose), they are going to get worn down in the 2nd half.  I think it will be close in the first half, thinking 17-14 Buckeyes-emotion, the crowd, and Bud will keep it close.  2nd half, with Ohio States adjustments and the difference in depth, on both sides of the ball, will be the difference.  

Just out of curiosity, what is the feeling around Hokie Nation on the Ohio State defense?  I've seen a lot of comments from Hokie fans in regards to VTs D vs tOSU O, but not much, if any regarding the VT O vs tOSU D.

Mark May does used to do the same thing.

Fixed that.  Last I heard, he is unemployed.   Trevor Matich showed up on the local Redskins channel.

Said perfectly.  It's also going to be fun to listen to the broadcast, and hear all the names that we know, that the nation will be introduced to-Hubbard and Holmes more than anything I think are going to turn a lot of heads.  Luginbill even brought up Hubbard, and gave the staff a pretty nice compliment, that not only can they bring in the 5 star guys like Bosa, but they are bringing in former Safety/Lacrosse players like Hubbard, and turning them into legit DEs.  

And don't forget (I know you haven't) about McMillan.  He's got incredible instincts for the ball.  I can see him causing a TO or 2, whether it's jarring a ball loose or deflecting a pass over the middle.

Don't forget about screens-if Bud wants to bring pressure the majority of the time, slip Zeke or Vannett out behind the extra blitzer, and there's nothing but green in front.  Oh, and BTW, Zeke has 2 healthy wrists this time.

What is Zeke listed at weight-wise now?  He looks like he's put on some mass.

I'm sure Zeke is like me.  I'll take my full head of gray hair (when it happens-it's started) over being bald.

Same reason Floyd won't fight Rousey, no holds barred like she said.  If he KOs her, he beat up a woman (again-legally this time).  If she submits him or breaks his arm when she pretends not to feel his tap, then he loses to a girl.

The Buckeye defense is the unit that is least talked about heading into that game outside of not having Bosa, but it's the unit that I think will be the difference in the game.  Rewatching the game last year to find that Thomas TD showed just how bad they played.  Lots of missed tackles/assignments, that they weren't missing later in the year.  In my mind, I see the Buckeyes having a short field for the majoirty of the night, and that means more often then not, it's not going to matter what Bud does, the offense is going to get points.

As far as I know he is.  When you think about it, he's seems to be a pretty good fit there.  Very similar situation as Rutgers.  An area that has a good amount of D1 talent, but gets raided by surrounding schools.

Did Wallace miss all of last year with an injury, or just part of it?  

Comment 9 hours ago

Could be a couple things.  As already mentioned, being good enough last year isn't cutting it this year.  Also, the higher profile guys are probably held to a different standard than say a walk on or transfer, in order to knock them off their pedestal and to start the process of building them back up.  That makes Prince losing his so early extremely impressive to me.

agree fully with you.  Just rewatching a lot of the games from last year, Thomas makes NFL type catches look routine.  Taking a 5yd slant 75yds for a TD, the jump ball against MD, the Sugar Bowl catch, numerous slants going into traffic, etc.  

Here's Thomas TD last year against VT.  I know Fuller wasn't on him on this play, but I don't know how much difference that would have made.

(TD is at 30:20 mark in case I didn't up load this correctly)
