Remember when Beck was the QB coach for Nebraska. When he was there, their QB wasn't that good either. I think Meyer could of done way better in hiring a new QB coach. just not seeing it in Beck.
And too many close ups of Wilson, I mean really, someone must of had a man crush on him. Seen just as much of him as we did the players I think, just sayin.
I totally agree with the Jones part, he isn't reliable. One pass he right on the money, the next its off. Missed 2 Td passes in one series. he just isn't reliable. Still think JT and the zone read is the way to go. Not sure what Meyer sees in practice to keep Jones in but we aren't seeing it in the games. He cant read the defenses as well as JT can. He waits in the pocket to long to get rid of the ball and worst one of all for Jones, is he turns the ball over too much. He maybe a QB sometime in his life, but I am just not seeing it right now.
mine was Fire Withers, the one that was in charge of OSU horrid pass defense that year. Thank god he is no longer with us.
lol, was going to say same thing.....
They seem to be better than last I will admit, but in all honestly, I wasn't impressed with Oregon when they played MSU, they are most deffinatly not the Ducks from last year, so for me I do not know how good Utah is by judging them against Oregon or BYU for that matter. In any case lets not worry about them just yet, we have plenty of games before them that need addressing by one game at a time. Lets not look past the next foe in line. One game at a time and we will be fine.
Except, he did not win those. If it hadn't been for Devin Smith, a lot of those deep throws would of been intercepted or incomplete. The games were won cause of a team effort. J.T. helped make that team, J.T. won that Penn St game for us. Cardale just can not run the read option like J.T. can. Some of those reads I could not t ell who had the ball right away, and by the response from the other teams, they couldn't either. Cardale is bigger and taller thus making it harder to bring him down, but J.T. runs the read option a lot smoother. All that being said, I trust Urban, he will forget more about football than I could ever learn even though I played the game. He will right the ship, that I fully believe.
Wow, Urban, if you read these, we have trust in you but I have to ask......What are you on? He must see something in practice that we don't in the games. I still think J.T. makes the offense run smoother. Can not figure it out. Well, there it is then.....Come on Cardale, lets do this......
Was wondering that myself. Not sure Beck is the best for the QB on our team. Seem to recall a lot of miscues when he was coaching at Nebraska too. But have to believe in Meyer, he knows him better than I ever will. :P
I don't think the problem lies directly on the qb nor on the play calling, I think I t all starts with the OL. Our SLOBS aren't t he same Slobs as last year. They look like they just started their positions. I watched this one play and even our senior offensive tackle completely missed a few blocks he normally doesn't miss. I am beginning to wonder if ther isn't too much on our OC, is he spending enough time with the OL? That is why he is on the sidelines and not in the booth as he said, to coach the OL between plays and series. Now there is a issue with QB too, I think just letting JT start and get the most of the reps in practice so that the team gets used to him, it just seems to run smoother with JT in. I am not saying Cardale is a bad QB, but JT makes it click so much better in my opinion. Ther is a reason why he was voted a captain. the team respects him. But if the SLOBS cant get their blocks Zeke isn't going to get the holes. Just a thought.... Hope they get it together this Saturday.
Not really, if you look at each game on Alabama list, if OSU were playing them, they would easily be favored in each and every game. That being said it as what Herd said on his program, OSU would dominate in the SEC. The SEC fan base can not look past their own inflated egos.
No, MSU did not look that great in their opener, and against Oregon, I am glade they won, but to be honest, Oregon isn't the same as last year. Adams is no Number 8, and if he wouldn't of over threw that one pass, MSU would of lost at their house. Still hoping MSU hangs where they are if not higher in polls when we meet them later. As for our QBs, until Meyer picks just one to start and other as back up and then makes it so the other isn't looking over their shoulder, we wont see our QBs play like they can and should be. I really think J.T. is or should be the starter. The offense looks smoother and faster when he is in the game. Yeah he doesn't throw as far as Jones, but he is more accurate and can read defenses a lot better, not to mention run the option read way better. Not to mention J.T. arm can make some longer throws as well. We didn't play that great on offense, thank god the defense showed up, but I really hope that was to the point of having the very short week between games. We will see next Sat. And if nothing else, it gives Meyer and company bullets for their guns in keeping the teams ego down to earth. pointing at the game film on what they did wrong and what needs improving greatly.
Having turnovers and silly mistakes like personal fouls is t he reason. Take them out of the picture and wow, 50 60 70 even with back ups in.
Exactly, not to mention Purdue, omg, how long with their currant coach and still no progress? You would think that they would be winning some by now, just sad and keeps that black eye or helps with it along with Indiana, I mean come on schools can we at least look like we are making progress?
Again I keep thinking of that speech in the movie Troy.....
keep in mind this is Oregon, they go on fourth down a lot also.
Yeah they will try and stop the run, that being said though, if Alabama couldn't stop us running and do not think Oregon can either. Thus like the Rose bowl a few years back, I see us running a lot more to control the pace and to keep their offense off the field.
I have no problems with it. Different look for 1st play off natty game. Looks fine to me. Looks like the letters are off centered though, looks kind of odd. maybe I am missing something there.
I keep thinking of what Brad Pitt said in the movie Troy, as they were approaching the Trogen beach. ....... "Myrmidons, my brothers of the sword. I'd rather fight beside you than any army of thousands.
Let no man forget how menacing we are, we are lions!
Huh huh huh!
Do you know what's there, waiting, beyond that beach? Immortality! Take it, it's yours!"
I watched that game TCU and Ole Miss. Ole Miss did not look good at all, and after the game they were all saying TCU making a statement that they should of been the 4 th seed. I was thinking or maybe it more proof that the mighty SEC isn't as good as the morons at ESPN and other media morons think that they are. If the Yellow Jackets beat or come close to beating Miss. State then that will answer the question.
yeahhhhhhhhh, hmmmmmmmm, No offense to Mr Gordon, but this time I think he is reaching there big time. Don't get me wrong it is good he thinks that but the facts still remain the same, not this year buddy, not even close to beating us. And I seen a couple of his interviews this year and he seems to be getting a big head, meaning that he needs to start giving thx to the offensive blocking for allowing him to make those great runs. His ego may be writing checks that his body can not cash. Again no offense to Gordon he is a great back but give credit where credit is due young man.
Agreed, I think looking back at it, I too owe Roby a huge apology. I too was hard in my statements about Roby being more worried about his NFL future that playing his games at OSU. Now I think it was all Withers that was holding him and the other defensive backs back. Once he moved on , either forced to or just because he wanted to, the defensive back field improved greatly.
Gene Smith has got to start paying tOSU assistant coaches more money. After looking at the article and seeing OSU isn't paying that well for top notch assistants, no wonder they leave. Get a good assistant and then pay him to stay, give him the money he or they deserve. If he doesn't I see every top notch assistant we get moving on for a better paid school. Come on Gene, get with the program.....
Yeah and according to Hermans wife in a tweet, she wasn't aware of him leaving OSU either. But if he does go, we do have a co offensive cord to take over.
