Amen! If I could take any coach into a young man's living room - past or present - to try to sell him on our school and program, it is Urban Meyer.
Selling point to Ruckert: come to Ohio State and continue to own TTUN, rather than go there and try to not be Ohio State's bitch any longer.
Wow! Wonderful program to have. I bet not many institutions can place young men in the NFL regularly AND help them with their education so that they can be successful after their profession sports career ends.
Makes me proud.
Brutus, I am going on the Myers prediction based on things we hear from Coach Meyer about him, his highlight tape, and the Army AA game. This young man is legit. I am thinking of him in the Orlando Pace category, he will can break the starting lineup on talent, not because the talent is there or injured.
Here are my gut predictions (not that they matter):
1. KJ Hill and Victor will become our leading WR's
2. Burrell will get lost in the shuffle in the O-line, LOTS of talent there
3. Myers surprises everyone and becomes a starter before the year ends.
4. Our new found return man will have 2 return TDs this year (kick off, punt, or both).
5. The "new-fangled" offense will be top 5 in the nation in scoring (PPG).
If I could live to be 1 million years old, THIS WOULD NEVER GET OLD!
They almost always do. My brother and I have some friends that meet us at Fawcett to talk a little in between their breaks, and before we head over to The 'Shoe for the lacrosse game.
I agree, Wez! Speak softly and carry a big stick.
I agree, Hove. My son and I are debating which game will be better to attend, the Oklahoma game, where both will be highly ranked, or the Penn State game, which is going to be one hell of a Heavyweight Title Match - and revenge will be on the Buckeyes' minds.
Rob, they may be a train wreck, but they have a coach that knows how to beat Meyer - or make him crap his pants at the least.
Amen. I don't care if we're playing for the National Championship the week after MSU, they are the team on our schedule that has fared best against us, hands down. Sparty SHOULD command attention anytime we play them. Hell, they have a better record against us over the past 5-8 years than our HATED rival has. They DESERVE the attention and not to be overlooked.
Couldn't agree more, not sure how Kiper ranks these guys... Then again, anyone that looks like Kazoo from The Flintstones wouldn't know much about college football players.
Since when is 3rd and 1 or 2 in the NFL a passing down?? The Falcons had 86+ rushing yards at half, but they abandoned the run game the second half. They were controlling the ball, and they panicked, plain and simple... got a case of puckerbutt...
I think it may take some years to hear the reasons of why Ed and Tim left, if we ever hear it.
Inquiring minds just want to know.
I think it's fair to say that we will never be in the top 10 nationally in YPG for passing offense, but with that said, we CAN have a 1,000-yard receiver easily each year.
Congrats and go Warren! I will be cheering for you all year, especially when the ZIps invade PSU. Tear it up!
My wife and I bought one of my 18-year old sons (yes, I have twins!) a blue Zeke jersey and a rookie card for Christmas. Those where is two favorite things.
Smart young man, I must say.
Watching Bosa play, he may have the best hand-fighting technique and fastest hands I have seen on a defensive lineman. Simply amazing, he doesn't allow a lineman to get into him.
Or the #4 QB, we are that loaded at the position.
I would love to see some plays designed for Tate where he lines up in the slot, goes in motion and takes a pitch or hand-off that would allow for a run-pass option. Lethal with him there.
Totally agree with you, Phi. I still remember Burrow's deep throws in the Spring Game. This guy has a great arm and the accuracy to go with it. Not one of his deep passes had any shot at being picked. It was complete to the receiver or incomplete. I think Joe may have a better arm that an oldie with the same name, Mr. Germaine.
Crice, I think this is a testament to the character of the young man the staff is going after. They have confidence, and possess the team first attitude.
Kid has a great attitude. He'll earn what he gets in Columbus, and I'm eager to see him
on the field hoist the National Championship Trophy. Just slight correct, hope you don't mind.
And what a great problem to have, eh?
Just a gut feeling here, but I think Tate will have a Braxton Miller type of career and will be asked to switch positions at the next level for Pro Day. This young man is SPECIAL with the ball in his hands.
