I don't think we will see diamond. I think we will just have the 21 personnel as the base and go 4 wide on 3rd and long.
At worst, he will get a medical redshirt this year --he never had a redshirt year anyways. Drew Brees came back from a really bad shoulder injury, so it can be done.
Ohio State has a Cover-4 base. It is not like Ash will never deviate from the Cover-4. He actually is known for Cover-2 also. Do a Google search. I am sure that he will throw some Cover-2 or 2-Deep Man coverage into the mix on 3rd and long.
The only question I was asking was about pattern matching schemes against the flexbone. Is it worth learning those assignments for one game?
Cover-4 is a good idea b/c the safeties are up there for run support. I am just wondering if it is worth spending the time to learn all of the pattern matching schemes against a flexbone. I think O-St wins w/ man and c-2 regardless.
Do any of you agree that we should just to be disciplined in our assignments and run Cover-2 or man the whole game? I wonder if there is a need for these guys to learn all of the pattern matching assignments for a flexbone offense.
I did re-watch the OSU vs Wisconsin game when Ash was the Wisc. DC. Wisconsin's defense, who was so disciplined and knew their assignments so well, gave our option fits.
It is interesting that Samuels is listed as a RB instead of a hybrid. He has some good size for a true freshman and Coach Meyer said he was really impressed w/ his skills at RB. Maybe he will play tailback 90% of the time and then 10% of the time they will split him out and have him play some hybrid to confuse the defense. There are plays in the playbook w/ two pivots on the field at the same time.
I think Saban would have been more than happy to keep Lindsay, but the guy probably has aspirations of playing in the NFL
I know what you meant and like I said you are right. I don't really want to get into an argument about how it should be articulated. I think for this offense to work against the better defenses there needs to be a power run game and speed on the perimeter. What happened last year, without speed on the perimeter, is just telling you how good Hyde and the O-Line were
I think Meyer and Herman will open up the playbook and show us some things we haven't seen early in the year but by the time we face Mich St there needs to be some real pass protection and a power run game.
Interesting. I would think that they would have to be hydrated days prior
There is some truth to that.Screens and hitches work for awhile. The screen passes are more effective when the defense has to respect the dive. Clemson and Mich St did not respect the passing game and that hurt us, so we need an oline for pass pro.
I am pulling for Hale also. I think that he is there physically; it is just a matter of time and technique. I think that he would also improve a lot during the season also.
The neutral site thing is a compromise between the two schools. Ohio St does not have any room left on their schedule to negotiate a home and home.
Ohio St is looking to toughen up their schedule this year and adding a ranked team would help. There is a possibility that there will be five undefeated teams at the end of the year, so a game against ND would help. To what extent, not much at all, but it helps. There is also the iron sharpens iron/battle tested reason. Last but not least, it would make OSU money
Notre Dame is 17th in the coaches poll, so it would not be that bad
It's OK and better than nothing but I was hoping for a higher ranked team
Really? Well, I guess he hasn't allowed any points yet. That's awesome
Night game. Everyone can watch it at the reception. It is also another reason to cut the toast to the man and bride short.
Marriage being about finding a soul mate, guys thinking only Playboy playmates are good enough for them, and Cosmo telling her guys have to be perfect, and, if he is perfect, he is boring is just another thing that the Illuminati has pushed on people to break up the family.
Another reason why I won't get married
In before someone says, "Fire Fickell".
Huh? He actually says that?
.Isn't it kinda pretentious to act like he has been there before if it is his first time in Vegas. Oh, like Las Vegas is nooo big deal to Aaron Craft. It kinda sounds like a lot of false modesty to me.
--It's funny that Arnold S. was an admitted steroid user, but was the head of the Presidential Fitness thing.--
Louie Simmons would probably never be directly involved in either OSU or Ohio high schools because of steroid usage, but, indirectly, it is not a bad idea. Routines would have to change for naturally trained athletes, but Simmons would still be a good resource.
BTW< Simmons trains different athletes not just powerlifters.
I could see the S&C coaches working together and trading ideas, but, other than that, Marotti already has to coach a lot of guys. I have stated a few times that I think Louie Simmons from Westside Barbell should get into the mix w/ Ohio State or Ohio high school athletics. I have no idea if he has any interest in doing that, but someone should try talking him into it.
Your professor just didn't have the instincts to play sports. It is a worn-out cliché, but I do believe in instincts. Does he prefer using the right brain or fast brain terminology?
