I wonder if Tom Herman's head coaching experience at Houston could set him up for an eventual return to OSU if Meyer moves on or retires.
Hadn't seen the stats yet. I don't remember if they interviewed him, like they did Zeke. Would have loved to hear him speak.
can't wait to go back and watch replays. Unbelievable that all these full games are on Youtube now. did you watch the Megacast with the ESPN personalities? That was pretty painful.
yeah. Lee made a few 1st down saving plays in the 4th quarter. Even my father-in-law texted me toward the end and said it was one of the best performances he'd seen out of an OSU edge LB. I seriously thought maybe somebody said "give MVP to 43, and it got interpreted as 23"...then again, not sure who really decides those things. Sad that Cardale got left out of an award there.
I get the italics. Did Lee get the award in the Alabama or Wisconsin game? I don't remember.
And sadly, I was watching an ESPN Megacast replay (with all the ESPN 4th tier talking heads) and Schlereth specifically said a few times that Elliott was not known for his blocking. Dude obviously has not watched much of OSU.
This is a really DUMB question....but, why did Powell get the defensive MVP award over Darron Lee? I honestly thought they made a number mistake and picked 23 instead of 43.
I haven't watched enough replays yet to specifically focus on Powell.
Mike Hall does a great job on BTN. NIce interview.
Kinda funny. that girl on the right in the #5 Jersey was talked about as a "big deal" in the OSU/MICH basketball game. They commentators talked about her journey from the championship game to the basketball game. Funny because they were laughing at her being on the phone constantly.
Kirk lost some credibility when he "broke the news" about Les Miles going to Michigan a few years ago, then it never happened. I think he has calmed down on his need to point out OSU's flaws during non-OSU broadcasts.
I don't mind him other than he tends to SHOUT A LOT when he's broadcasting games, which annoys me.
Wonder if "van Jalin" can kick field goals.
like I said above, there was all this crowd noise, tension, excitement - everything on 10 and then in an instant it went to zero. I meant to catch this on the BIG "game in 60" yesterday, but I missed it. I want to hear that crowd noise go to a vacuum again.
yeah, i was also wondering why he did that stutter step/chop before launching forward.
did anyone notice the crowd noise before/after the sack? It was like the stadium went to "mute" as soon as Hackenberg was dropped. very cool.
it's been a real long time since I've looked forward to seeing a 3rd down - long situation for our offense, just so I can see our QB throw daggers.
...and now hearing that UM has lost their starting tailback.
...and my stomach almost turned inside out when I saw Lee go down. Fortunately it was just cramps. Also a little surprised that Urbz had a lot of the offensive starters in at garbage time. I guess he was letting Jones work with the 1st team.
I think Spielman tried to infer two points; 1. It's tipping off the defense that you want to run again, and 2. It's showboating or calling attention to yourself. I always thought Hyde was doing it to mock Robinson (which he probably was). I love it with Speils gets on the bucks for stuff like that.
Get back to the huddle and let the offensive coordinator call the play he wants.
great analysis. I'm sorry this is a little OT, but did anyone recognize Spielman calling out Elliott for doing that "feed me" gesture. Spielman basically said "get back to the huddle and stop with the feed me stuff".
Great job guys. Any news on Curtis Samuel?
Most annoying is when ESPN runs the "LeBron Mt Rushmore" thing on their bottom line crawl for three days straight.
yeah, I hear you guys. Agree that he lost out some PT to Hyde and Wilson. Just disappointing to see him go out like that.
What really happened with Jordan Hall? When Urban got here, he basically declared Hall as one of the only true athletes on the team. He had passing skills as a back and elusiveness. Aside from injury he seemed to become a no-show on this team.
3,2,1 until this makes the top story on ESPN.com as a black eye for OSU and B1G.
