If he commits can we call him El Nino? Heir apparent to El Guapo?
Hopefully he can use this Kent State game to gain some confidence. I'm sure he was nervous playing his first game in the Shoe under the lights. If he couldn't catch he wouldn't be on this team. I have faith!
Definitely agree, however Cincy hasn't played a game yet...I think this is definitely a disadvantage for them.
What is the OSU coaching staff doing to try and confuse teams? I feel like we haven't brought anything creative to the table in the past 3 years to try and beat teams. We just let the other teams game-plan to what we're doing. It didn't seem like this was the case with Urban at Florida, but maybe I'm just thinking of one game in particular....
I spent all day yesterday watching the NFL...and I realized something that I was previously ignoring:
Last year's team has guys ALL over the league playing important roles.
Linsley - Starter, Mewhort - Starter, Roby - Starter, Shazier - Starter, Hyde - Impact Player ....I'm sure I'm forgetting others. Point is, we lost A LOT of talent and I definitely did not realize how difficult it is to replace NFL caliber players.
Somewhere Tressel is smiling and saying "why didn't I think of this?"
Absolutely agree. That essentially leaves two defenders unblocked.
Dunn - 80 yards....I figure this is my only chance of winning at this point. Everything else is taken....
I think JT Moore has made the switch to TE.
Man, it's stressful to try and follow recruiting.
Well, not exactly how I'd imagined it but glad it turned out in our favor. I think the -12 against VT is a different story now. I would probably say -10 is a little more realistic. I guess we'll see if things change this week?
Maybe it's the 'Buckeye Homer' in me, but I'm absolutely picking the good guys to cover tomorrow. If I'm reading this right...13 point favorites right....not 31?? Maybe everyone is hung up on the last time we played Navy, but UFM wasn't our coach!
ZOMG! I want a Chessie!!!
Hopefully we get a big lead early and Heuerman doesn't need to play too long. Also gives the younger guys a chance to get their feet wet.
Asked this doofus for a picture a few years back (when i didnt know any better) and he declined.
It's GO TIME!!!
I can't wait to be at this game on Saturday. I respect the hell out of Navy because...America!
Also hoping for a kick-ass flyover...
Best wishes on a speedy recovery. Looks like Braxton might still be hopped up on some laughing gas in this picture!
Seeing as the picture accompanying this article is of Lebron James, I'd have to believe Urban will try and get him on the sidelines for one of these 3 games. My hope is the VT game for obvious reasons.
Couldn't agree more. Not sure if it is the delusional fan in me or not, but I still have tons of confidence in this team. Maybe it's because I already bought B1G championship game tickets and I want to put them to good use on 12/6...
GT is a triple option team like Navy...they hardly ever throw the ball.
Last I checked, the game is not sold out. So the injury to Braxton could entice some Navy fans into buying tickets with hopes of witnessing an upset. However, as is the case with most Buckeye away games, I expect to see alot of Scarlet & Gray. We've got the largest alumni base in the country and haven't played more than a handful of games on the East coast. I would think 70% good-guys is very realistic.
I think everyone is reading into this too much. My take is that JT will get the starts and Cardale will get the garbage time snaps.
I'll be making the trip and absolutely cannot wait! Hoping some Baltimore Buckeyes on 11W can suggest a few good pre/post game bars to get some O-H chants going...
Has the Glenville pipeline run dry? I haven't read anything about their prospects for the '15, '16, '17 classes which seems unusual...
