WOW. James Robinson sure came out of nowhere to me. Love his size & credentials. Love to see him join zone6 & get coached up to reach his potential as well as the other members of zone6. We know you can recruit Zach Smith. Now is the time for you & everybody in your unit to approach this coming season like your hairs on fire. Grow everyday. Winter workouts, spring ball, summer workouts, fall camp. Come out next year & show the world what ZONE6 can really do.
I try & look at it as more of a coaching snafu against MSU that kept them from the playoffs & a chance to repeat. You have Zeke & Bosa back & add Mike Thomas, & it 's hard to believe we lost that game. I hope & believe that Kevin Wilson & Ryan Day will fix our offensive shortcomings of the past 2 years & we'll never see that sort ineptitude again, as well as a much different final result had they been in charge of our offense vs. 2015 MSU.
Great job ex- Bucks. I think that might just help our recruiting a bit. Is that even possible? Looks like that Urban guy just might be able to , No. 1, identify talent, No. 2 , recruit the top p[layers in the country, & No. 3, develop them into Rookies of the year! Who's got it better than us?
If this enhances our chances of getting Harris, I'm not sure that would be too bad. I think we could use a 6'5 210 lb. receiver more to our advantage somewhat more than a 5'9 161 lb. H-back where we are pretty well stacked for the immediately future. Love his upside.
Unless he is being pushed out the door, I'm not sure why a guy who has won a National Championship, coached the Slobs into one of the best units in college foot ball, & is from the great state of Ohio, would leave Urban Meyer & the Buckeyes for minn. seems a bit odd?
Browns-no offense-no defense-no special teams
Love this idea Cutty- Seems like a win-win-win-win. We get one of the, if not the best, O.L. coaches in the country. We can all save face by letting him remain co-off.cord. by title, but letting the new guy both develope our QB's & calling the plays ALONE from the press box. EW could still help instill the run game plan from week to week, without the burden of play calling. Let him be on the sideline with the Slobs face to face throughout the game to make much needed adjustments. See what Stud can do with the TE's. I'm in with that.
Very good, it's Jeff. Jason is in Birmingham & Jon is in Columbus. Tell your Mom & Dad I said hi, & Go Bucks PS- I enjoy reading your commentary, keep up the good work.
Next thing you'll be telling me is your Dad was Superintendent, & you know Grandpa Guido quite well! Happy Holidays Kevin to you & yours.
Very well written and insightful. You must of had Mrs. Clouston for English?
I would love to see the Bellaire Bullet, Joey Galloway. I don't care how old the man is, he's still running 4.3 40's & doing monster dunks on the hardwood. To me, it really could be more of being coached up by some of the best we've had, of the little nuances in the game to look for, which a walk-on or a sub would not be able to do.
I think that is all part of the mindset Urban instills in all his support cast, leave no stone unturned. It has worked out pretty well with both Durbin & his story and the punter we found from Downunder.
I'll take Larry Johnson over him as the D.L. coach,seems like players respect him more, & Vrabel & Urban were never the best of buds. I'll also take Sciano ahead of him as our D.C. Nothing against Vrabel, but I just think we are fine right now without him.
He also coached high school football at Mingo Junction, part of the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference. Another proud area of the state that loves it's high school football and the Buckeyes.
Great bloodlines as well, his Dad played in the N.F.L. Great pickup in my view. Welcome to the family!
3 out of the 4 first team D.B.'s are from the BIG, not to shabby for a slow, unathletic conference void of all that southern speed.
Just imagine our D.L. if Ejuan Price would have stayed with the good guys, Wholly Batman what would QB's do?
Marvin Wilson would be a HUGE piece of the puzzle that the Buckeyes really haven't had since Urban's been here. Having a monster like that on the inside could take our def. to even new heights. Come on up & fulfill your dreams big guy.
I agree about Landers & Jones, but you can NEVER have to many 5 star def. lineman. The fact that Jones & Landers & of course Bosa are already in the rotation as freshmen should show him that you can indeed play here as a frosh if your good enough, and can only help us add him to the Silverbullets.
I wonder if Urban would be interested in a 52 year old walk-on, or water boy, or towel guy, etc. Just to be inside the WHAC on a daily basis with all of the emotion, dedication, power of the unit, brotherhood, would be an incredible & memorable experience. Just love this team right now.
All very great points Eddie. I also think having Kerry Combs recruit you & having Urban "The Closer" finishing the deal, & having a great shot of going to the playoffs in the next several years should be quite enticing to almost any DB in the country wanting to play on Sundays.
Not to mention 6'5. Yes please.
