We all know Nick Bosa is in the 8 man rotation, so why do they continue to list him as 3rd string at one DE spot, while at the other DE spot Rashod Berry is listed as 2nd team, but never plays?? And the fact they list 12 starters on offense, week after week, year after year really bugs me.
The Buckeyes outgained Penn State, 413-276, and held the ball for almost 15 more minutes but lost, 24-21.
Actually Brutus it is now 20-1.
Supposedly we have all this speed at wideout with Campbell, McLaurin, Wilson etc, but these guys can't get open. Punter needs to do that, instead of running at taking too many steps. That blocked punt was all him. We play too slow, not getting plays in fast enough. JT on long 3rd downs needs to throw the ball to the marker instead of dumping it 5 yards short and the receiver not getting the needed yards.
Jason, when they do Ann Arbor & Bloomington they will fly there and then take bus back.
It is just you.
At one time this was a very competitive series. State Penn was very good in the 90's. From 93 to 01, we only had a 5-4 edge. However, since 02 this has pretty much been one-sided with us having an 11-3 lead for an overall 16-7 lead since State Penn joined the Big 14.
Enjoyed going to the opener and seeing the Bruins score 5 straight to win 6-3.
And South Dakota, although that kid washed out after a year.
Nuernberger could redshirt, but there is no way Urb is giving him a 5th year. Don't get me wrong, best players play, but this is now the 2nd year he couldn't beat out a walk on. I can assure you Urb has given him many opportunities to win the job. Scholarship players have to prove they can't play while walk ons have to prove they can. If things were equal Sean would get the job. Both Willoughby and Durbin have with little experience in football have clearly beaten him out.
DJ, Haubeil has already said he is taking a grey shirt next year and won't kick until 2018. Hopefully Durbin can get another year, not sure since he played soccer at another school. If not, hopefully there will another walk on next year for the 3rd year in a row to handle the duties.
Why does the header say familiar faces when most of us don't recognize any of these names unless they are from our hometown?
At one time this series was competitive. State Penn was a very good program when they entered the Big 10 in 1993. From 93 to 01, we had a small lead in wins 5-4. However, since 2002 this was been a one sided affair with us winning 11 out of the last 14 with many of the wins blow outs.
Shout out to Tyler Durbin, the guy who have never kicked in a game before this year. Das who??
What was the point of playing Antonio Williams and Bin Victor against just Rutgers so far? Not saying they deserve more time, but if you aren't going to redshirt them, then they should get some playing time even if it is just a handful of plays per game.
Don't forget get that Charley the meatball is being paid by Kansas as well.
Who is hating here? Because I said Greene was better and his record proved it, and Schlichter beat him out which are both facts, you call me a hater?? Seriously, what's your problem.
KMP-they always practiced in the shoe. As far as the best option QB at OSU, I introduce you to Corny Green who as a starting QB lost 3 games in 3 years. Gerald didn't even play QB as a senior as Schlichter beat him out as a frosh.
Kbonay-how long did it take before you were throwing again?
Oregon slow demise reminds me of when we beat Miami for the national championship. Next year Miami lost two, then a couple of years with 3, then 5,6,7 losses. Coker got fired, then Shannon got fired, then Golden got fired. I see a similar path for Oregon. Their offense isn't unique anymore and all schools have alternative unis except for a couple, so that is no big deal as much as it was.
Alexander has seen a fair amount of time as backup TE. He and Baugh are both on field for 15 to 20 snaps. Davon Hamilton is part of the 8 man rotation on dline.
Who do you think will play middle next year? Don't tell me Nick Connor as he has yet to see the field as Craig Fada is ahead of him.
I see Baker sliding over 5 feet next year and playing middle after Kwon leaves.
He has great one liners. I enjoy listening to him on college sports Sirius 84. For 79 years old, he is still pretty much with it. Love this one-there is never a right time to make a bad decision and never a bad time to make a right decision.
