JOSH!!! Great to see his smiling face again! I love that young man, what a great attitude he has.
Many were surprised when Brown announced he was declaring for the NFL Draft after a redshirt sophomore season that featured just 32 catches for 402 yards and seven touchdowns — four of which came in one game.
Personally, I don't think the scouts will be looking at the numbers for Noah's catches. Instead, they will be looking at the QUALITY of them, and he had a few dandies. You can't teach what Mr. Brown has, catch-wise.
Phi, I couldn't agree more about Sheffield. You DO NOT bring in transfers to sit and watch. My gut is that he starts, and has a pretty good year.
I have a feeling the Silver Bullets may be more like Silver Missiles this year. They are big, strong, fast, and pack a wallop!
The Arnette positive notes from practice = BOING!!! This excites me! This young man may become the next great shut-down corner at DBU.
I am excited to read the part about Victor beating a known stud in the defensive backfield. I still think this young man will burst into the college football world in a big way this year.
I wonder how much they make as interns?
I agree, I really think Sheffield comes in and becomes a star. With that said, I think we will see many stars in our defensive backfield over the next 2-3 years, continuing with whoever the staff can recruit. This staff has to be one of the best - if not the best - in recruiting and developing DB talent.
LOL, agree Kiester! I bet Coombs is even juiced in his dreams... I would love to see what his dreams are like! (If he even sleeps)
Qtip, I think that depends on how well the youngsters do. If they struggle, yes, I could see Damon moving back.
This sounds like the makings of a great season. The young men still here that were part of one of our lowest points in school history sure sound like this will be atoned for. Never bet against the revenge factor.
I like our chances MUCH BETTER against a Wilson-less IU team. For once, we should actually cover this spread.
I also think it's time mom and dad sat him down and have a long talk with him on how to act in public and to represent himself AND his family name. If my son did something like this, I would put him on my knee and paddle his arse a few good times.
Love ya, Zeke, but dude, show some class and respect to women.
To quote the late Sam Goldwyn, a verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on.
Here's to hoping the young man makes his verbal, and honors it. (Hopefully to TOSU)
"However, at least our beers were celebratory drinks, while TTUN was drinking to drown their sorrows."
Ha-ha! Hahahahaa! Hahahahahahahahahaaaaa!! I just love the difference between Ohio State beer drinkers and scum beer drinkers. One celebrates, and the other drowns their sorrows away.
Damn, I may be showing my age, but I remember a 12-pack cans of Gennessee Cream Ale for $2.35 - and no deposit!
As much as I hate to say it, Peoples-Jones may be one damn good football player THIS year for the 'weenies. I got to see him play twice last year, he is good. I was really hoping to see him go to MSU or the the good guys, but he went to that place I didn't want to see him at...
I wonder if playing corners could be done like hockey, where they match lines against each other. When an offense sends in the 2nd or 3rd WR in, the defense could counter with their 2nd/3rd corner. It is very true that the game is like a track meet for four hours. If the offense brings in fresh legs, the defense needs to counter this.
Sorry Nib, but I agree with Woody here. And to let you know, I would NOT down vote you for voicing an opinion I do not agree with. I gave you an UV to help negate that. Down votes should only be used on statements where someone is personally attacking another, in my humble opinion.
Linga, couldn't agree more about your statement of seeing Wilson's impact on this offense. The big change I think will be seeing our TE become a regular target and weapon in the Ohio State offense, something we have not seen in almost ten years (or more?).
Wow, Chris, great words for this great man. You describe the type of man I try every day to be. Now, I can put a name to the person I try to emulate - Corey Carpenter. Rest in peace, dear man.
Personally, I love the the thoughts of McCall returning punts. When he got in at RB last year, he made both our offense and the defense look like they were walking through the play, he was that quick.
Give him 2-3 yards of open field, and watch the hell out!
Wow, the next great #5 (Browning) and #2 (Dobbins) !! These guys I think will surprise many.
Many expect the PSU-OSU game to be a Heavyweight Title Bout, but I think this will be an early knock-out of the Nits. At night, at home, and with revenge on their minds, I truly think this game will be all over before the 4th quarter starts.
PSU didn't exactly light us up with their offensive stats, and I don't expect that statistic to change this year, as well. I am guessing the final will be something like 45-21, Buckeyes, and PSU puts that last TD up late in the game.
I was afraid of that - Hooker not running. By the way, I am at work and I can't sit and watch this. I am being audited this week... UGH.
