What he said!!!!
Burrow might be a diamond in the rough. Could develop really well in Myer's offense and sling it to the talent--
PSU won't go 10-2. They got by UCF by the skin of their teeth, RU lost last nights game more than PSU won it. Nova throws five freakn int's! Penn States O-line sucks, no push in the run game, depth is nonexistent and they aren't of the talent that the big boys of the B1G have. Don't expect tons of improvement this season from that unit. If you could win with just a QB Hack might be the answer. He still forces throws but should be stellar by next year. When the current recruits have a year or two of experience however they will compete for the B1G title. If Wimbush sticks around even better but he's been flirting with Stanford--kid is gonna ball wherever he plays.
This century---------------2000 forward
If you don't like his peaches, don't shake Ramszy's tree
Thanks AV--Think he could have a few minutes with Mr. Fickell?
I wonder if the battle for starters lasted too long for the settled on unit to gel?
No shit.....toilrt paper- Urban out coached Jim Tressel 41-14 but either many commenters are too young or they have short memories----
Does anyone else think Curtis Samuel would be a good kick returner?
I would add that as much as I liked Tressel, Urb's put the beat down on him 41-14. Out coached him big time. Seems some folks on here have short memories. Coaching staffs are dynamic entities, changing a coordinator or position coach can make a huge difference either positively or negatively. What Myer had in Florida was exceptional. Charlie Strong/Dan Mullen/Steve Addazio/Stan Drayton/Gregg Mattison/Chuck Heater/Doc Holliday--------No weak link in that chain.
He HAS to watch that performance and question Herman and Warriner. Myer has a big ego and will not tolerate anything that makes him look bad so I suspect we'll see improvement or change.
It's cool to hear about some of these micros of the midwest as we have west coast and Rocky Mtn brews here in Montana. I left Ohio before the micro brews became the rage. I do have a kegerator in my shop with an OSU handle that I'm quite proud of. Local Neptunes Brewery in Livingston supplies my stash. If I run out I buy Kettle House Brewery "Cold Smoke" out of Missoula. Medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival. I'll be watching with my brother who is a big bourbon drinker so two fingers of Buffalo Trace on ice at kick off is mandatory.
Our D-line will have a lot of influence, William and Mary have kids that would be three deep here. Their O-line will be under pressure from the atmosphere of a night game in the shoe and 1st round talent. Me thinks Darron Lee may visit Mr. Brewer once or twice in the backfield also. I suspect Fickell and Ash will try to use his speed/athleticism like Shazier to harass QB's. This could be a really good one!!!
I agree the opposing teams throughout the season will try to get the ball out quick to negate our D-line pressure even though we have no elite talent and are overrated.
Anyone unwilling to stand behind their comment shouldn't be taken as credible. We know better, most of us watch every game multiple times.
Think the LB play of MSU is critical against the Ducks short passing game. Mariota gets the ball out of his hands quick--
i'm hoping Frazier get's the nod opposite Bosa. He played pretty well and seems a bit more athletic. I know the Hokies O-line better eat their Wheaties Saturday or Brewer will have two shortened seasons in a row-
Crash and Burn baby
CC- Do remember the Cal game last year? Think it was our first drive and smooth jazz set the safety up with a wide receiver screen, then the next play or so he faked the screen throw and launched down field to a completely wide open Smith for a TD
Less experience on a team = more potential for growth and development. SCARY THOUGHT for our adversaries-
Andy Vance on point on the unreasonable expectations, wait till the B1G schedule as this team will be firing on all cylinders.
Kicking a 46 yard field goal as your first attempt, priceless! J.T.'s first game in years, let alone on this stage, with this much pressure was more than acceptable. Speed and talent are in abundance. Tackling still sucked at times. Navy could hold a clinic on blocking for our kids and yes Fickel was late with adjustments.
The number of whiners with no experience playing the game, not to mention on a D-1 level complaining about this performance is the definition of glass half full-----------I watched the VT game too and Navy played better, I'm convinced they would have beat VT. in the first game of the year anyway. Don't forget a team this young will progress much quicker than an experienced team.
Josh Moyer wrote a piece of shit article on us like Navy was a FCS school and we were supposed to win by 50
Our D-line will have a party in their backfield, but our O-line better tighten up-
Judging by the numerous comments about VT, apparently some of you guys have not watched them struggle against William and Mary today. That's right, I wrote William and Mary! Ended up pulling away later in the game but Navy looked better--
Met a couple from Piqua in Livingston Montana last night, dude had a Buckeye hat on and I my visor. That's RARE here---! I know two OSU fans in the area.(there probably are more) So I concur 11Warriors is my lifeline and appreciate everything done to bring me my fix.
Now I am addicted and think I may need help
I was pleasantly surprised by R's defense, I suspected they'd be able to run the ball but they controlled the LOS on both sides. Doubt anyone could totally shut down WSU's passing game, Rutgers made a few big plays when needed though. Definitely good for the B1G
