I see three ass-kickings and one pretty good game!
Hi Chiro, I upvoted you, but not because I can't stand the Steelers. I used to HATE them with a PASSION, but with the loss of the Browns, moving to Baltimore, and the smart drafting of the Steelers (drafting OSU players), I actually RESPECT the Steelers now. I would never in my life wish on any other team or fans the loss that we Browns fans had to endure.
I am still a Browns fan, but not as rabid as I once was, and you can blame on the temporary loss of the team.
I like to think the reason the Browns have stunk so bad is due to their LACK of DRAFTING Buckeyes. ;)
Andrew - great job, first!
Do you think Clark's commitment is pending until the Martell offer is accepted/rejected?
Thank you, sir.
Watched the ESPN mock draft last night, just to see what they had for our young men. They have the Browns taking Zeke at #8, followed by Bosa to Tampa Bay at 9. Then, three straight Buckeyes Decker to Detroit, Lee to Atlanta, and Apple to Buffalo later.
I really HOPE the Browns get Zeke!!!
Sounds good! For you and anyone else that wants my cell number, it is 248-635-0198. Please feel free to take it down and text me about meeting up for a game. Just please in the text refer to the 11W site and your user name.
Trapt, we should pick a game and meet up. I can be there in about a half hour. I would love to see these young players.
Nebraska's second pitch: You like cow tipping?
I've got a 2-word answer for your question - HELL YES.
The talk up here in Detroit is that Decker is a real possibility. Either him or a LB from 'Bama, and I am pulling for the OSU pick!
Yeah Phi, I heard that in the news up here, and thought "Isn't Peppers a bit small?" If he is going to be successful there, he's going to need to spend more time in the weight room - and not just checking himself out in the mirrors!
Here's to hoping our offensive line breaks the little man!
I think we have plenty of speed for the deep threat. The pressure is with MAKING the deep catch, and that is just a matter of reps.
I would love to see Lee's name attached to the new walkout LB, hybrid LB, or whatever the new name will be for this position. This young man is fast enough to cover just about any player on the field, and he is big enough to punish running backs. And on top of all that, he just flat out has a nose for the football, great instincts.
Hahahaaa!! I see what you did, there.
I don't know who will draft Zeke, but I do know that whoever does, I am buying a Zeke jersey of the team that drafts him.
I absolutely LOVE that young man. He's one of my all-time favorite Buckeyes.
Squirrel Master, I totally agree about Weber. I have said it before, he reminds me of Maurice Clarrett. He's compact and quick and can take the punishment of being an every down back.
In all fairness to JT, his two INTs were not his fault. Watching the game on TV, the first INT his arm was hit when throwing and made it sail high and like a duck. On the second one, he threw the ball to where the receiver was supposed to be and you can see that Dixon I believe it was didn't finish the route.
I was pleased with JTs game. He's going to win us quite a few games this year.
Totally agree KMP10. I also feel that Burrow could start at QB THIS YEAR for a few D1 programs. He looked damn sharp.
Two things I loved: 1) the corner blitz - was impossible to contain; 2) the number of catches to the TE.
I think most of the TE passes may have been check-downs because the defense had everyone else covered. But - it was awesome to see that many catches by our TE.
Our blitz packages this year are going to win us some big games. I'm looking at the OU game as a potential first big win.
I was very impressed with Joe Burrow. This kid has STUD and FUTURE STARTER written all over him. His touch on the deep ball, even when not caught, was right on target - no chance of an interception. He stood tall in the pocket a few times and took a lick in order to get the pass off.
Many impressed me - Torrence Gibson, Malik Hooker, Michael Jordan, Mike Webb, Devon Hamilton to name a few, but young Mr. Burrow was tops I feel. I think he's are 2017 starting QB, as JT will leave after a great Junior season.
Personally, I would love to see Armstrong get an offer. Great name for a QB, and he plays in my alma mater's League (Bellevue) but maybe not for long. The NOL is going away after this year, most being absorbed into the SBC.
I don't agree here, Traptnmi (and so am I, by the way, Lake Orion) but Miranda has the look, body, strength, and mean streak to become a very good lineman. I say take him, he looks damn good. You can never have enough good football players on one team! ;)
Meyer hopes the NCAA "calls and asks for our opinion" after stories are written about the changes to the NCAA rules with regards to satellite camps and texting.
I don't think that will happen. I bet the SEC was in the NCAA's ear pretty loud to have this practice stopped.
Call me crazy, but with Under Amour trying to make Maryland the "Oregon of the East', I would not be surprised at all if Maryland some day becomes relevant.
Yeah LT, Franklin may have been good as a head coach in the SEC, but he can't cut it when running with the B1G!!
