Agree the east coast talent could help both programs rise up, and that Iowa, Illinois, and Purdon't seem to have a lower ceiling. Illinois in particular seems to be satisfied with mediocrity. They won't hire a quality staff and lose the top in state talent because of it.
It's amazing what 50 points a game will do for highlight videos-
THIS WILL BE EPIC
Good point about every Oline being bigger than our Dline. Speed is just as big an asset as size as a Dlineman. Bennett has a cat quick first step.
Urban has developed a culture where if a player is unprepared from lack of effort it's embarrassing to the player, his teammates, the program, university and state of Ohio. That's pretty good motivation to prepare like a champion.
Whether Tress recruited them or not, Urban and Herman developed them.
There were a bunch of pessimists on this site in August that didn't think Ash would make that big of a difference. HA! Luke Fickell is STILL on the sidelines too, can you say redemption? This staff is worthy of a pay raise and I hope Gene shows them the $.
Sparty's O-line was better than Wiscy's. they held Bosa a lot but did a very good job in general. I'd say more fit and athletic.
Wiscy's boys are fat and a bit slow-
The Black Belt will make some plays and be disruptive in this game. I don't think we'll have to worry about any of the seniors being motivated.
Wiscy just couldn't handle the man. I've watched that game several times and he was blowing up Melvin and Co. all night long.
He's pretty well thought of. Could see it working with Urb's recruiting and talent stockpile.
VT more than likely sharpened the focus of coaches and players. Whose to say we would have gotten by Penn State or MSU without that initial setback? Even us fans appreciate the way the season has worked out after being so disappointed and lowering expectations. It's very hard not to be fired up for next season even though we still have so much to play for, time for a new pair of shades!
Kid has talent, just not much talent around him. I think it's a shame that if he was in the right system with a supporting cast it would be a different story. Like Urb's says, QB is a product of those around him.
Bosa will have potential agents camped outside the WHAC.
We have seen the origin of a new technique, "The Bosa" =where running backs are used as projectiles against pocket QB's
The worst espn voice on Saturdays, period.
Even if we win a title pundits will claim we have the unfair advantage of a weak conference that allows an easier path to the playoffs. We will be better off if the conference improves--plain n simple
Quack attack too much for crab legs to keep up with.
Lynch just can't hide his college education.
Agree that Forde is the anti-homer on BTN. He never has much good to say about the B1G and contradicts the others when they do.
JT is no pussy!
Bosa welcomed Jimmy Delaney into his dorm room for a few minutes to accept the hardware and accolades before a few FINE young ladies escorted the commish out
