"bloody tears" (just a matter of sense)
Thanks, I'm looking forward to the spring. Things are charged now--like Meyer put paddles on the program. I'd be hyped to play.
I like his O-line pedigree and the way he's integrated his O-line execution into the success of his offense. What I'm looking for in 2017 is less 2015-msu kinda stuff (not helped by a key illness), which is near certainty. Can't speak to the allegations against him at IU, but I always appreciated the teams. Always a JTB believer. The focus last season for development and remedy, imo, was the O-line. I saw everything else at the closest to be a second concern--including playcalling, which was meh to poor, but showed up worst or a shambles against tough defense and capable offense. Fix the O-line and get it into the O-game--> Should then see a dramatic consistent improvement.
Wilson rarely leaned on the quarterback to run the ball ....
Jeesh, great reading this analysis and review of Wilson--so many key points and great job setting the context for the development. Made me think of 'athlete personnel vs offense invention' as a chkn egg question. Also made me think there are similar 'athlete personnel' changes going on on defensive side, in terms of body build and skills set. The college game keeps evolving.
Does something like this only work down south, or are there other schools around in the midwest? I didn't know until I read the article that IMG has been a trend.
I had to miss the broadcast, so that explained a lot for me.
William White's a very good, very quality human being. I'd have lots of respect for his son, who should do great if he's learned the important core student and character stuff from his dad. Very excited to see his son as a Buckeye.
Ties aren't losses, so it's a decent outcome for the men's series.
The BSU power play in the 3rd-->irony. But, reading the playbyplay, Buckeye shots on goal (3, as opposed to BSU's 11) in the 3rd--that's what kills. Tough loss.
Bemidji knows the Buckeyes very well. Great recovery after losing the penalty-kill streak and a very significant win despite that disappointing shot ratio.
Today's important for both men and women's team. Go Bucks
Since going 3-for-6 in that outing OSU’s penalty kill has been flawless in 16 consecutive contests.
Bemidji goalie Brittni Mowat ... one of the WCHA’s best.
Should be a good measure of improvement. We got the best, though.
43.1-inch vertical leap
Yes, this is something I could do off a mini-tramp after jumping from a few stairs up. Wow, it's great flattery for the staff and school to have impressed him so much.
My 3c about Herman: The Buckeyes really didn't qualify as an explosive offense until the unknown howitzer stepped in. The potential was there and sometimes showed itself in a game, such as that msu game, which was relatively late in the season. But, imo, the shock and awe of the NC offense derived from Cardale's accidental entrance, Herman's aggressiveness established under Meyer's post-1H psu direction, and the peaked development of the prodigious track-star speed and ability of Devin Smith, which had been cultivated by Meyer throughout Smith's career.
Just a footnote to my footnote: I read more than once here, immediately following the NC game, how we'd miss Devin Smith.
Meyer is of course the man in front of the curtain, but Kevin Wilson is I think the man behind the curtain regarding a decent portion of personnel changes. From my ignorant perspective, the WR group now looks wide open for competition and I'd guess the group is Wilson's focal point and epicenter for really beeg change in the offense. Should be a very interesting spring.
well, at least they got back up, so to speak
Good for the two of you. I'm going to date myself, but, my friday freshman concern coming in from outta state was where I was going to score something better than 3.2 Bud. Really, if I were recruiting, I'd look for mature judgment over a couple inches height, definitely.
Hope he lights up the city. Best wishes
*And if LF endorses TG, too (Recall TP), ya know it all ain't about TG's junk.
because he felt it would better prepare him for college
Wow, I don't read that line very often!
... though you wouldn't have had the several hundred thousand dollar payoff, and I at least would've excused you, no problem.
Great news and great news in context of everything else going on. I wonder if Jamarco, Price et al. have helped reassure the recruits. I don't underestimate the influence of our players. And Pat's decision last year really set this continuity and staying-on stuff up for the future, imo. Let's not waste the these guys' trust.
Really, a lot of this post-post-season has been like reading hyperbole in fortune cookies. I could do with some obvious good news forecasts. Like this one.
[Really the Meyer-Wilson thing kinda reminds me of Tressel-Pelini, a move which appears to be working out well for everyone.]
I agree completely, but my concern is 'as long as.' The tolerance to be expected from this univ admin is zero, imo.
I would probably have different thoughts if Michigan hired a coach followed by these allegations.
Because their track record is practically 180 opposite. Really, though, I'd bet any whiff of Wilson doing the alleged stuff with our trainers and players will cause a clean sweep. From an outsider's pov, it's a real gamble Meyer as CEO is taking with Wilson.
Kinda reminds me of Fred Pagac back in the day. A good omen.
Good luck to an excellent O-line coach. I didn't think he wanted to call plays anyway. One step back, for two more steps forward someday.
