Comment 30 Jan 2015

Throw me in there with the guys that wish our comment history went back that far. I know I posted at least once, more to console myself, and I speculated on how awesome this team would be NEXT year, hehe... 

Between the storybook ending of the season, the skewering of Bammer, the trio of QB's, the return of the Silver Bullets, the natty, champs in the first CFP... and I know I'm forgetting stuff... heck of a season to say the least. What a year to join the good guys here at 11W!

I'm going to go all Chandler Bing on you guys and say... "Could there BE a better opening opponent for the Bucks next year?!"

This. A million times. Hang 70 on em. I don't know if there is a better first game of the year for this team than that game. Everyone saw it. Most of the team experienced it. Urban won't have to push many buttons to get an insane amount of energy built up for that game. I've heard some call it a trap game, but the game plan for our O is simply Zeke Zeke Throw. Make the early throws easy to read and once the juggernaut gets rolling, fire up the oven for some roast turkey.

And why can't Barrett be the one throwing the deep balls? Seems like most think Barrett has no arm strength. Very short memory span. Weren't we calling him .50 Cal? He didn't "jump out" on film with his running ability until he busted 86 on the Gophers.

Cardale will not break an 86 yard TD run. He barely gets the edge of the defense and has to truck people for yardage. Barrett is far and away a better runner... close to 1000 yards this year, behind a growing O line, a Zeke that was injured early on. If Barrett gets the job and stays healthy, I'm looking for a 5000 yard season from him. He's a stats monster.

Anyone have any thoughts on Miller spending the majority of the year in street clothes (no jersey) and with no headset on? Versus Barrett, who was always in jersey, headset on, behind the offensive bench? Just wondering.
Comment 13 Jan 2015
The offense was Zeke. Dude put up 700 yards and 8 TDs. He ran for more than Jones threw for. Give Miller a back like that and OSU is 12-0 headed to the B1G champ game. Heck, give me a back like that and I could get you bowl eligible.....
Comment 13 Jan 2015
No, people need to go back and watch Barrett run the offense. I was watching the UC game and the tempo was crazy. Also everyone thinks Jones is a better runner. He's a better BULLDOZER, but let's not forget JT and that 86 yard TD run against Minnesota.
Comment 13 Jan 2015
5 TDs/2 picks... that's not "torched". Take away the Wisky blowout and he's 2 TDs/2 picks. Plus fumbles. I thank him for the wins, I love him and his smile and his moxie, and I hurt for him that he has gotten W's but has to work to start, but let's not overlook Zeke. ZEKE torched.
Comment 13 Jan 2015
I really feel for Miller. But this is an Urban Team, gotta scratch and claw for the playing time. That said, 2 things I'm hearing from the fans bug me. The first is that only Jones could have led the team thru the past 3 wins. I challenge that. If it was JT in the driver's seat I see a similar dismantling of Wisconsin and less turnovers in the last 2 games. Miller in the driver's seat, I dunno. So many weapons. We haven't seen him with play makers like this. But any of the 3 could've won those games. The Bucks did not climb on Cardale's back, they climbed on Zeke. The second thing I see a lot is that King Cardale has ice in his veins and that separates him from the other 2. He does have ice in hus veins, but all 3 of these guys are cold-blooded players. Hearts the size of the great state of Ohio. Enjoy the championship, don't flip over the "Too early" polls (a. That article on ESPN was written pre-Duck-beatdown. b. ESPN runs the playoff essentially, why not put the first team out as the preseason #1? Trolls exist because trolling works.) and grab some popcorn come August. Dis gon b gud.

The punishment the Bullets delivered on pretty much every play slowed them down quite a bit. Fun to watch, especially satisfying to watch Bosa slo-mo belly flop onto Mariota. As an aside, if you haven't gone back and watched JT running the offense in a replay of a previous game, do so. Tempo is fast, crisp, E-Z is an all around threat and Wilson and Marshall are just icing on the cake. Whatever QB gets the keys to this Caddy next year... wow. Just wow.

An astute observance.... I have an opinion on an opinion board.
Comment 25 Dec 2014
To be the best, you have to beat the best. Give scUM the best head coach available. Any... ANY Buckeye fan that says that scUM becoming more relevant is bad for the Buckeyes needs to take the pacifier out of his mouth, grab the jar with his nuts in it off the mantle, and join the rest of us at the big boy table. With UFM at the helm, the Buckeyes are not invincible, no, but they definitely don't hope that their rival doesn't get better, lest they "steal our recruits". Imagine telling a current player you don't want scUM to get better because you're worried they would beat the Bucks. Yeah.... no. It means more to beat scUM when they think they're relevant (even though they haven't been relevant since the late 90's).
Comment 20 Dec 2014
If I could upvote you Awlin, I would. The view of the B1G is once again in OSU's hands. I would love to see Hairball at Meatchicken, because the match up against UFM would bring some cred back to the rivalry. But if the Buckeyes play well these next two games (see what I did there, Bama fan?) the B1G will be back on the map. Hard to believe after that disastrous second week.
Comment 08 Dec 2014
Would have been nice to see the Heisman fellas throw JT a bone but I would love to think they did not because they know he will be up at that podium soon. Melvin is out, thanks to the Silver Bullets. Mariota is really good, but coming out of Oregon I think people expect big stats. Watch Amare a couple games and this guy is... unreal. I think he takes the hardware.
