The amount of injuries already this season is worrying as heck.
Alabama is stacked at every position. No need to be disrespectful of an incredibly successful program.
Glad Dontre is gonna be running punts back. Seeing Philly Brown fumble every other return last year was infuriating.
I have a feeling Bell is gonna transfer.
Considering how Gardner and Connor Cook torched our secondary last year, seeing how we do against a mediocre QB could be a good or bad sign on where the defense is. Last year during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the Buffalo game I knew right away we werent title contenders because how awful our secondary is. We should know the first two weeks where we are at.
The practice in camp on the Ackerman Field which is a shitty uneven grass field. Makes no sense that you wouldnt practice on the same stuff in the Shoe but whatever. I'm sure Urban knows what he is doing.
Great to see LeBron wishing Xbrax get well
I hope Devon Smith doesnt just get a lot of time because he is a Senior. He's not a very good WR. Last year outside of Bosa we seemed reluctant to use any of our youth and just rely on seniors, especially in the secondary which was frustrating.
Get LeBron in a room with Harris, Sweat, and Gibson please.
Night games bring out louder student sections. Noon Michigan games and the kids are still sleeping practically.
I'm a young-timer (?) and I still prefer Tressel. Urban hasn't won a thing yet in his time here and has had disaterous defenses. Obviously will change in the future but JT is still ahead.
10/17 178 yds 1 TD
8 carries 55 yards 1 TD
I dont think Braxton's thrown for that many a game. I doubt JT does in his first game ever.
Nice. Looks a bit better than it used to. Only 15 years old and already one of the worst stadiums in the NFL.
I like being optimistic but I think people have had too much Kool-Aid this last week. There are gonna be a lot of growing pains in not having Hyde, Shazier, Braxton, Roby, and that awesome O-Line from last year. Plus a secondary isnt going to go from almost dead last in the nation to good over the course of a few months. 10-2 or 9-3 would be an incredibly successful season in my book and sets us up for a run next year. We should all just pump the brakes a little so we aren't disappointed when we struggle the first 4 weeks of the season with pretty much all new guys everywhere minus the D-Line.
See Michigan State below Michigan...yeah this means nothing at all.
Oregon's offense is some of the most innovative stuff in football from the last few decades. A touch of that with Urban's Power Spread and it might be a truly unstopable offense. The best in any field use ideas and concepts from their peers to get better. Popovich had admitted stealing plays from coaches in Europe and bringing them to the NBA.
Watching that video, there were so many close chances of him taking one to the house. He is gonna be fun to watch this year for sure.
Problem with pressing Watkins is he'd blow by every one of our corners.
Below Smith and Pryor, but above Krenzel.
If Braxton comes back next year beats Michigan, wins the B1G, and wins the national title I think he becomes #1.
I'm still not sold on Herman. I think almost anyone could have put up record numbers with last years schedule+ Hyde+ Braxton+ that amazing O-Line. If anything the play calling was iffy throughout the season.
I said 2. I expect for there to be a 2012 like Purdue game where the team just doesnt show up due to its youth and loses (Cincinnati or Penn State come to mind) and a loss to Michigan State. All in all 10-2 would be amazing for a team this young that brings back nearly everyone next year. We'd probably be ranked 1 or 2 next preseason.
Florida was a train wreck after Tebow because Urban didn't pick one guy and ran some weird 3 QB system. Pick a guy as the starter and go with it.
Next years team is going to be stacked. 2015 may be the most talented team we've seen in a really long time in Columbus.
If we get Braxton on next years team that very well may be the most talented team the Buckeye's have fielded since the mid-90's. It is doubtful we were gonna win the title this year with the tremendous amount of youth we have everywhere.
