Warriner is underpaid.

Tom Herman has convinced me he is also underpaid.

I think Fick is overpaid. One good game against Wisconsin won't convince me. I need to see more consistency.

Ash has totally turned around our passing defense. He should be paid more than Fick.

Larry Johnson is a bit of a question mark. The defensive line has performed okay...considering that we lost Spence. I want to evaluate him after a recruiting class or two.

It must have worked. Michigan ran for just 11 yards after that touchdown.

Sounds like the defense just needs some leadership. I think the defense would be worlds better if they had a John Simon....and not because of his on the field play.

This team will win the BCG and Jones will have a great game. Will it be enough to jump TCU?  idk but I believe in this team.

"Coop broke the only promise you can't break at Ohio State and was fired for i"

I disagree. Before Coop was 2-10-1 he was 2-9-1. Before that 2-8-1. at some point he was 1-(7,8)-1.

It took him 4-5 tries iirc to beat scUM. Before his first victory, he was blown out, tied, and shutout. If it mattered that much to the OSU admin, he would have been fired long before when he was actually canned.

Can we stop downvoting our members because they questioned our recruiting/retention tactics?  it's not really a bad question.

I do appreciate Urban for giving them a ceremony. I however am a bit reserved at their departure. I am conflicted because we gave them redshirts. redshirts give you another year of eligibility. if we don't want to give them 5 years....then stop redshirting players.

However, they have 4 year scholarships. we didn't kick them out before they graduated and now they have a chance to be starters and earn graduate degrees somewhere else. we get more room on the roster. it's a win win in the end for both parties.

as long as we don't kick underclassmen and new signees out before they get to campus *coughMullens/Milescough* we shouldn't be too upset...if at all.

RE: the run defense

coleman ran for 228 yards on 27 carries. two of those combined for 142 yards.

subtracting the two big runs, he went for 86yards on 25 carries. that's not too shabby. he's a hair under 3 yards a carry. suppose the buckeyes don't screw up their gap assignments, he probably just misses the 100 yard mark....although it would have been hard to keep him down in garbage time.

20M is a hefty sum.

take half of that and upgrade your coaching staff. go out and buy a good HC and staff. pay your HC 4M smackers, and give em another 4M to build his coaching staff. the last bit can be in bonuses and the rest. poach a few of the SEC coordinators if you can.

we can't change the recruiting demographics on our own i.e. we can't make the southern kids move up north. but what we can do is (1) attract them up north with an impressive coaching staff and (2) coach up the talent we do have.

they called the screen play towards the end of the game despite Tech blitzing all night. sometimes the play just doesn't work because the qb or receiver don't connect.

some of those slant routes we ran were dropped should we have not called another? what happens to our last touch down if we stopped calling slants after the first drop?

the key is that the play WAS open so your point is irrelevant.

well yea...vast is an adjective after all

a minority that isn't vast is something like 49% vs 51%

a vast minority is something like 5% vs 95%

idk what he was saying but I think Perry, as well as Grant, needs an upgrade in his cover skills and his instincts. he is clearly bigger and faster than last year but i dont think he has 'it' yet.
 

I think the defensive play was improved. We probably should't expect a complete 180 overnight but I did like what I saw. the corners played much better but the linebackers didn't show as much improvement as the corners.

ugh I must be the only person in the room that didn't notice the play.

I must have been slumped over crying or something lol
