Wow, an eye-opening and incredible article on Mr. Don Unverferth. It seems this man really excelled OFF the gridiron. He was a pioneer in the medical field.
This may be just a bit off-topic, but after reading Davis' bio, I think when Schiano leaves, Bill becomes the next DC. Forgot how many years experience he had at the NFL level.
Amen!! If I wanted to hear from an asshole, I would have farted...
That's what I like to think. Hell, even a broken clock is right TWICE a day...
WOW! These videos are awesome, great teaching methods for shedding blocks. Great article, Kyle!
From what I have read, the Browns want Garrett then Trubisky with their #12 pick. If they really want Hooker, they will need to take him at #1 or trade up to get him and I think they want a QB more.... I don't agree, but what the hell do I know about professional football... other than the Browns' brass suck at draft picks...
BuckeyeBen, I agree about the pass pro, but Wilson does like to get throws off quick and this should help JT out. I don't think we see as many passing plays where JT sits in the pocket for 3 seconds or longer looking for the open man.
Family might be all Georgia, but the young man made three trips to OSU on his own dime. I still give us a good chance.
Funniest damn thing I have read so far today! Nice one, James!!
KMP, I agree with your failure rankings, and I feel JT is taking way too much blame. I think we will see that the blame should have been placed on his QB coach and the old OC. I would make bets on JT having a year comparable or better than his first year starting.
I'd like to say we have an embarrassment of riches at WR, but we need them to step up and contribute first.
With that said, I REALLY think this year Zone 6 goes wild, thanks to Coach Wilson and his play calling.
Weber reminds me of Mo Clarett. Little in stature, but tough man to bring down.
Kevin - I totally agree with you assessment of the young pups. They are talented and we are BLESSED to have them all.
I also believe that young Mr. Wade is going to hurt quite a few opponents before his career is over at TOSU. Also, he reminded me of Shawn Springs, maybe it was just the number, but I felt I was watching a young Mr. Springs play all over again.
Have to agree, Pastor, about Haskins showing more growth. Last year, we all knew Burrow could throw the deep ball. This spring, Haskins came out and showed he can, too.
Day and us Buckeyes fans are spoiled. We have two back-up QBs that could start this fall at a handful of other schools in the nation.
Siva, I gave you an UV, not because I agree with you, because I don't, but to help negate the DV.
Who down votes anyone for stating their opinion? People, really. Save the DVs for those who bash others, call them names or try to bully people.
VERY COOL! Sent chills up and down my spine.
Wilson and Day will show how valuable they are this season for sure. I expect our offense to be in the top 8, possibly 5 this year for total points and points per game. This is going to be one very tough offense to contain for four quarters.
We will hit many quick passes early, and when the defense tries to take that away, the deep ball will be there. We should see quite a bit increase in our passing yardage production for this season, too. (Not that last year's numbers will be hard to beat...)
With Wilson's offense, I think the stock is up for all starting WR's and McCall. Get a slip screen / WR screen out in space to any one of them, and with the way our receivers block, we should see 1-2 of these go to the house every game.
Our speed is great and it will cause many defenses nightmares this year.
Amen, Linga! This young man DESERVES better times. I thought he was MVP for the Spring Game, even better than Burrow and Haskins.
We are going to have one hell of a battle next year for starting QB.
Wow, I see you're a "glass is half empty" type person.
Me, I am staying optimistic until proven wrong.
I'm not talking about averaging 50 against just those schools. I am talking about the course of the entire season, Oklahoma, Penn State, MSU - every team. We hung - what - 42 on Oklahoma last year. With Wilson at the reigns of the offense, we should have our highest PPG average in the Urban Meyer era at Ohio State.
I am fairly confident in that statement.
My hope is that Wilson stays for at least 2 years, and someone learns this offense from him, like Day. When Wilson leaves, and I am very afraid he will, we NEED a Wilson student to take over this offense and keep the play-calling and pace at his level. He is one of the great offensive minds in college football of his time, IMHO.
I also hope we can get the ball to Paris out in space early and often. He has game-breaking speed and he has the ability to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.
KP, yes, I think you are in the minority about the offense. I think we could average close to, or 50 points per game this year. Coach Wilson is THAT GOOD. Look what he did against us with his Indiana teams, and lesser talent. Our opponents are in for a tough game against our offense this year.
Just so you know, I didn't DV you, and I gave you an UV to help negate it. People should not be DV'ed for stating their opinion.
