As a passer and athlete, I wouldn't say it's necessarily real difficult to be better than Barrett. He's very accurate and shifty but not an outstanding athlete or a really strong arm. As a leader and running the zone-read offense, good luck finding someone as good. Haha
If you expect them to go 9-3 this year, I don't care to associate with a buckeye fan of that mindset. I expect them to win every game, knowing there's a chance for a slip up somewhere but 9-3 under meyer is never expected, no matter how many players they lost.
Ah yeah, true.
I don't understand the winning at a high level either. He made it to 2 Super Bowls and a 3rd NFC champ. Never a SB win. Do you know the last time he won a conference championship as a college coach? It wasn't while at Stanford with Andrew freakin luck. It was at the univ of San Diego... He's never ACTUALLY made it to the top of his profession, whether as NFL or college coach..
The TE-H pulling toward the backside from his "slot" formation to act as a blocker then release into the flat is a simple, yet effective wrinkle as long as he doesn't get knocked down before then. But yes, meyer and Co are much smarter than I so they'll have plenty of options out of this to work with.
And still list 2 schools who have highly regarded RB committed, including the #1 rb and overall player at bama... Kinda strange.
The only reason for that is because we've seen it work over and over again. I have my doubts about how SOON those guys will be ready, but again, let's be honest: this team can take a loss @okla if it forces them to grow up quickly and gets them ready for the big ten schedule.
Depth is an issue, at a lot of positions, but with argubaly the best coach in college football and talented, albeit unproven, players waiting for their chance, I like the odds.
Maybe so, haven't kept up with it lately I guess.
This comment sounds like you think they were looking for a reason to get rid of him? Are you kidding? They only 6 seniors as it is and you think they'd want to get rid of 1 of them? Come on man...
Absolutely hate to see this... But there's 1 less scholarship now to hit 85. Definitely didn't want to see it happen like this.
I was taught to never lay hands on a woman and never start a fight... But you damn well better finish one if it involves you or your family.
Totally agree. Gavin Cupp, Leipsic Ohio, is a small school. I believe they play in division 7, smallest division in Ohio, which has to have around 110/115 ish boys in top 3 grades or less so he comes from a VERY small school as well. For what it's worth, my school had about 60 boys in the top 3 grades.
With only 128 FBS teams, that's about 70% of teams that have offered. Holy wow.
"Small rural high school of 560." Mine doesn't have 200. Haha. Granted, we don't have osu caliber players but I always find it funny what some consider small schools. Haha
I could honestly seeing it swaying to almost a pick em by game day. A Michigan friend of mine (well sort of a friend) has said he expects osu to win the big ten and make the playoff again, much like 2014. While I don't know whether a young team can do pull a major win at okla that early, but losing there doesn't hurt as much either. I think the bettors will put their money where it's the smartest, and they'll prob end up being the Buckeyes until it gets to -3 or less.
Dont mean to keep replying to your comments haha, but watch the warriors, they switch almost every screen and alot of it is to hide curry's defensive deficiencies. Everyone else is decent on ball defenders, and sure curry lead the league in steals but that's because he can roam because everyone else makes up for it on the screen switches. Attempting this is good, but it typically wont work with him.
If kyrie was healthy in the finals, were talking about the cavs repeating and not the warriors. The cavs had so little depth and had to expend so much energy in the first 3 games, and unfortunately only won 2 of them and couldnt overcome it. I believe itll be different this time around, plus Cle is the deeper team now, even with an injury or 2, as long as its not to LBJ, Kyrie or Love/thompson.
Just like Ramzy said, they give piping hot takes that create clicks to their page. Nothing more, nothing less. Haha
The only way to gain experience is throwing them into the fire. Nobody saw coming or expected what Elliott did to end 2014 either.
I don't expect that drastic of a repeat this year but sometimes all a player needs is a chance to show what he can do.
Greg Paulus, according to guys I know who have season tickets, is the main reason OSU was even as good this year as they were. The only guy with much energy on the bench and guys listen and respond to him during breaks. Mattas offense has never changed, Paulus just joined a couple years ago. Sorry but he's not the problem.
Whenever Matta hasn't had a total star player to play thru, this is what he reverts back. Hard to expect him to change now. Maybe Lyle becomes the star player, but if not, this team has a few more years before we see any significant changes..
PSA: Ohio State isn't in Uconn's region or even on their side of the bracket. :)
Apple, Bell and Powell all expected to be in the first 4 rounds, 2 in the first. Lee a mid first round pick as a safety/LB hybrid.
These guys have won big at OSU and now see their stock as high as anyone at the pro level. What's not to like about coming to OSU at their positions?
Mainly because OSU has been good in the distant and not so distant past while scum has been below average for years. Harbaugh is infusing energy and an over the top mentality to try to revitalize the program.
Scum finished a spot below OSU last class and with 11 months still to go, long way to February 2017.
Didn't say it never happens but this was an especially rare instance of SIGNING with a school without visiting.
