Great question Harley, and I would think the answer is yes, but the way we see many non-calls on the offense, it may get missed/disregarded.
Awesome breakdown, Mr. Stephanson! We had a great one in Evan Spencer, and I like to think that was coaching. Zach should be able to continue producing great receivers here.
Totally agree with you, 1996. I think his ranking is so low because he is from a small-time school, and relatively unknown to all those "recruiting experts". Let's keep an eye on his career.
Koz and Phi,
I agree about the UNL situation. Seems Riley is really selling a new, updated and 21st century style of offense to the young-uns. He's a new coach in the B1G to keep an eye on.
Buckguy, me too! I was born & raised in Bellevue, and I know all about high school football. Great area to live, and yes, I consider myself a "Clevelander" as I was also a big Browns and Indians fan.
I've got to confess, I have never been a Cavs fan, but last night I shed tears for the pride I have as being an Ohioan and for all the loyal fans in Cleveland. I grew up an hour and 15 minutes from downtown Cleveland, and I feel that is my hometown, too. I am so happy for all the real Clevelanders! YOU DESERVE THIS!!
Then how do you explain all the coaches and assistants that Alabama has?
Oh wait - it's the SEC. They can do anything they want and the NCAA turns a blind eye.
Linga, are you talking about Beck's stock or JT's?? ;)
Same here! Most weenie fans are obtusely blind to their football team and university for that matter. Nice to see some of these people DO ACTUALLY show signs of almost normal brain function.
Gray, funny you say that. I was talking to a few scum fans at work just yesterday (I happen to live in meeeshigan) and they asked me what I thought about Hairball and his antics with Saban. I told them I think it is funny, and that he is basically calling out the SEC, they can do what they want but when the B1G comes onto their turf, they cry foul. They both said that they think Hairball is crazy and he's going to blow at some point. I laughed!
Yeah but Sweet Lou made it rain for a different reason. ;) No disrespect to the man.
BOOOOIIIIIIIINNGG! Reading this article got me EXCITED!!
Can you say The New QBU?
Why thank you, Trapt! (flipping a coin) Have an up-vote, my good man!
KMP - totally agree about Burrow. I watch him and I think of Joe Germaine. Not the most talented or physically intimidating QB, but he just has "it" - and my gut says he will be a big star at Ohio State.
About the alternate uniforms, I don't mind them at all, especially if it's for one game a year. But with that said, I would prefer NOT to have any alternate uni worn for The Game. Classic game with two classic uniforms, does NOT need anything added.
Amen, SouthAlabama, never want us to be like Oregon - ESPECIALLY playing like them in a National Championship Game. They always seem to "pull up lame" on the big stage.
YEAH! We put a beat-down on the whore AT HER HOUSE. I expect a similar type beating when she strolls into Columbus.
Phi - TOTALLY agree with your MSU concern. UFM is what, 1-2 against Dantonio at MSU? Scum has not really challenged us on a regular basis. MSU is the team I am most concerned about the last 3-4 years.
BukiRob, I upvoted you for your statistics, but I am a Woody Hayes believer of them. Coach Hayes once said about them, "Statistics remind me of the fellow that drown in a river whose average depth was only three feet."
They DO NOT always show the final outcome of a game. ;)
It's hard for me to get excited about a punter or kicker, but this young man DOES get me excited! Cannot wait to see him banging FGs in the Scarlet & Gray!
Thank you, Andrew! That is what I thought from your article, but it's NICE to be re-assured. Now I have that warm and fuzzy feeling!
Great work, sir!
Great questions to all, and even better answers!
My gut pick for MLB back up is Tuf Borland. With the name and pedigree, I think he's going to be another stud LB - very glad he choose OSU over UW. Hilliard will slide to Will, like mentioned above.
I couldn't agree more about JT and having him listed as #1. In years' past, we had QBs with some experience but this year, we have no experience behind him. If we lose JT, we can forget about vying for the B1G East - period.
Really, MD? I read that sentence in the article, below, then shuddered. I believe we HAVE talent, but there aren't many with reps.
It's hardly a surprise he was named a captain by Meyer at the conclusion of last season and there are no replacements on the Buckeyes' roster for McMillan.
Talk about irony! Who would have guessed that a player from TSUN would have a chance to come to Ohio State and be in the mix on the O-line as a true freshman?
