Me too if it gets uploaded early enough. Seeing the highlights, particularly the scores in the second half, my memory is a bit spotty on. I went into full on party mode midway through the 2nd quarter and never looked back.
I dont quite understand. Are they transferring to another program or are they just done with football in general?
Exactly. With the supporting cast this team doesn't need Barrett to make NFL caliber throws. If he can make the right decisions on read option and understand the intricacies of the passing and screen game, he doesn't need to be a world beater. Limit mistakes and turnovers on his end, let the speedsters make plays, and hopefully the defense is coming to play this year.
What made Tebow special wasn't that he could rip off 50 yard runs every game like Braxton or that he had a cannon for an arm. He could not really rip off big runs and we all know in hindsight his arm is pretty sub par. He just had a mastery of this offense.
Yeah I did not think much of the O-line, just more on the evolution the offense as a whole should take at the QB spot without Braxton. But, if the Oline can be at least serviceable to above average, I think that would be all that is needed if Barrett can piece this together like we hope he can.
There is nothing wrong with feedback regardless of whether or not something is free - I am not any more or less thankful for that than you are by offering a critique. Being an asshat unnecessarily when providing feedback is a problem.
I hear you, and again it isn't meant to be a slight to you by any means and I apologize if it comes across as such. I appreciate the job you do on Skull Sessions and enjoy your writing. Skull Sessions I just think of like food - having pizza every day for a while just makes you want to mix it up occasionally.
You do make me realize that it has been three and a half months since the last real Buckeye football game and I am likely being more negative than usual.
I kind of wish the Skull Sessions would go back to a different writer each day. I don't mean for this to sound like I am bashing on DJ, I enjoy his writing, but the Skull Sessions seem to be a good way to get to know the writers better as it provides more opportunities to get their opinions on what is going on in the sports world, and as a result the few weeks of DJ taking sole control of these I already know what his reaction to what he is going to cover before I have read it (i.e. the slow burn destruction of the NCAA - I get it, DJ loves it so so much and thinks athletes deserve to be paid.)
I am sure this change was mostly done by some sort of necessity, but getting the takes of a different writer each morning, for me at least, made these a bit more enjoyable as it felt more random. Not saying I am on the verge of stopping reading these, but just thought I would give a constructive critique with an attempt at putting a reason behind it.
I'll throw you a HS cause you owned it. Whatever was said, owning your garbage we should reward just as much as we punish the obstinate on here.
Birm, was this one of the moves you mentioned but weren't at liberty to divulge in the dubcast?
Look guys, Oklahoma gets torched by screens too...sigh..
Kirk Herbstreit furiously takes notes
Amazing how they spin that right? Braxton makes a throw like that and the whole flight of the ball UNTIL I see an OSU receiver pull it down I am wanting to repeatedly throat punch him...
Well I guess I'll spit on one less Michigan fan this week to return the favor.
Obviously Urban needs to learn from his past mistakes and put Baugh on murder watch...
What I find myself thinking whenever I rewatch that game is "man, this game looks like its 25 years old..."
It amazes me the advances made in television since that time. I have no doubt that younger football fans who started watching right as HD started becoming the norm will look back at games that are only a year or two beyond that and think they are watching Baltimore Colts era games. Add in Keith Jackson on the call and it gives that classic game an even more dusty classic feel.
Though to speak on the article, If I was watching it by myself I probably would have pulled a Michael and switched it immediately after the incomplete pass too. I was half a second away from going Angry German Kid before I saw the flag.
Ironically, Urban Meyer is an alum of that cesspool of a university...
It is like everyone forgot when Texas A&M entered the SEC as an afterthought and turned out to do pretty damn well. But of course, Ohio State can't compete with a heisman candidate QB and an overall more talented team than A&M...
Whatever. It's a matter of when, not if, for Urbz to settle this.
Win over #8 Texas A&M in the Sugar Bowl? I forgot about that....does it count towards our SEC record now?
Michigan obviously knows what they are talking about, what, with their two BCS bowl game wins in the last 15 years or so...
While I generally try to abstain from speaking ill on any current/former OSU player Duron's track record does speak for itself. Inevitably someone will probably try to take a flyer on him (probably my Bengals, cause that's what they do) but by all accounts it really seems like everyone should just steer way clear of this kid. I do hope he finds some way to put it all together though, Vontaze Burfict seemed to have a lot of his same issues (though probably a generally bigger talent though).
Suprised they bothered even bringing her in after the Manti T'eo situation
