I've been thinking that this year is Warinner's year to shine, but in reality it was last year. This year is Johnson's year to show himself and for Warinner this year should be the well-deserved spoils.
"Watch Johnson interact with his players on the Buckeyes' sideline or on the practice field."
That's exactly what I was doing each game. I watched him to see what kind of rapport he'd built with his players during the off and pre-season. The umaryl game stands out. When Bosa was once aggressive too quickly beyond his assignment, I got the impression he's teaching these guys non-stop, with the same level of interest during practice and game. I also wanted to see how he behaved in scarlet and gray. He's entirely focused on his players--whatever their uniform. The guy's definitely one of the great ones and I hope he's happy here, but I also hope he finds that coordinator role, too, because he deserves it. He deserves to have as much influence over as many players as he can get.
I actually think he outgrew the hc role. This, university presidency, is a much better fit.
Now, that I can get behind definitely.
Hah, good--that's exactly what happens to me when I come here for a break, with my glasses off. I hate glasses.
Glad they see his potential. I wish him the best. Very strong leg, with the ability to put it places--it's all about form, specifically disciplining yourself to the form.
He can tackle well too, after his own KOs. That he can actually play the game didn't go unnoticed.
I don't watch the nfl unless I can watch a Buckeye play. To me, nfl is entertainment while I eat and drink. I've never wanted tp eat anything during a Buckeye game--too much chance of being ejected.
Anyway, you win with people and you win with a great team. That's all I care about really when it comes to Buckeye sports, just how great we all are. Last post/season we were dm great.
Tell me this isn't going to be a tsa app.
Hey, the 50s rock. It's not what you can't do, but what you do and what you've done that matters--if you know what I mean
Yeah, I'm a fan of all three of these guys, but I remind myself to look at the situation as primarily a team thing. All three get to wear the rings. This is an historic phase in one of the few best, most storied cfb programs ever, and no one's going to forget this qb battle, just as no one's going to forget how the last season and post-season went down.... I also tell myself, none of us know what's going to happen this season. Neither of the two with headphones and clipboards is guaranteed that role, either.
The Corey Smith hookup is intoxicating. It's going to figure heavily in Meyer's decision making and Cardale obviously has the inside track and the heavy advantage of spring reps.
Yes, all of you do really excellent creative work (I'm a writer--just overl;ook my bad grammar and typos.) I certainly don't lead every comment I've ever posted here with that acknowledgement, but I wouldn't bother with this site if it weren't the case.
I just looked up the Bob Golic youtube on the event--my god, priceless--or, I should say, ten cents it was. Btw, I probably will stick with nickel because I don't want any confusion with dime bag--I'm sure that's dating myself some.
I was a kid and I thought for sure it was a nickel--the urban dictionary says 'nickel,' but wikipedia says 10 cent. It could be it was 10 cents but called nickel beer. .
I liked the contrast between booze and charity type activity--I don't like the idea for the stadium, but I'm trying to be open minded
Btw, my name comes from that infamous Indians game, many moons ago.
If there isn't a need, charity, or something under-supported, targeted for the extra revenue beforehand, I'd rather not see the school collecting it from this particular source. And I really doubt we'll see lower ticket prices from alcohol sales, but, if so ....
Exactly. And as an aside, Foster sounded too sure of things the last I read his remarks about the game coming up.
That was an awful night, an awful awful night.
What I look forward to is our defense. Our defense will dominate. The Buckeyes' O could start slow, with early season goofs, but they're going to do more than prevail because our defense will suffocate vatech.
We had that game back in our hands late, but our defense let it get away yet again. This year, it won't happen once.
JT and Cardale don't, you're right. They also study and prepare their heads like pros, so they read the field faster and it's reflected positively in their game decisions. However, Miller still has yet to show how he's come along.
One major thing you will need to credit him for is that he hasn't transferred, and I find it highly unlikely he will. He's as much a team member as anyone else on the team, but, how he's come to play the game naturally, as a player, is a bit different than many many others. Among the gifted, he's far greater gifted. It takes someone like Meyer to cultivate that talent, and maybe he can't in this short time.
Btw, that last season was among the very few best seasons I've seen my school football team play. Proud of all of them, and really they'll work things out for and among themselves.
My opinion: no one smiles like Cardale, and Miller doesn't do what he does because he's selfishly minded but because of the way he's learned to play the game, naturally. He's a colossal talent, even in comparison to the other two guys. His problem has been to learn the idea of effective distribution. No idea how much has he learned since last year, and he's pretty much going to have to approach things cold when he actually gets to demonstrate it.
Neither of these three guys are ego fiends, but just excellent team players. That's got to help Meyer out a lot in the decision process and help out the two players who likely will see much less time on the field or at the position of qb.
"“I kind of like our skill set”
It's all good, it's all beautiful english understatement--grossly so.
TBG, after I read your response I'm not sure that you read the situation correctly. I'm symapthetic towards both the player and my alma mater. I think both parties are the losers in the outcome except for the fact that the player may have an immediate opportunity to go somewhere else and get cleared by that next program's medical staff--medical professionals with significant accountability at stake in their evaluation.
What I wouldn't mind seeing is that the media fairly review this issue for all of the major programs. The predicament for these major programs is certainly more complicated in terms of liabilities than merely oversigning scholarships.
Sports medicine is way better, too, these days. Not only in treatment and prevention techniques, but I expect in prognosis/recovery, too (but not always perfect--take Miller for an example). And the latter may have been an immediate factor here for this player. The better luck to him wherever he next chooses.
