I don't know how you did it, but you just made me laugh. Does that make me a bad person?
My comment wasn't meant to convey I have given up on these guys. I am confident the offensive line problems will be ironed out, and furthermore I believe this team can win the rest of it's games and still has an outside chance of making the top four (will need the help of other teams faltering). My mind wanders a bit and I just wrote down my thoughts about the future. I need to concentrate on the here and now, I know.
I don't care who you are playing, 6 touchdown passes is a difficult feat. I am all in with JT. That is why I thought about next year, especially if he has a record breaking season as a freshman. It will be very interesting to see how the qb situation plays out.
You are right. Was being lazy and not even thinking about the other meaning of BM. Will type his full name from now on.
I can't help but think that it was actually a good omen that Braxton got injured when he did. Looking at our blocking, namely pass protection during the VT game, i think it would have been very possible BM would have been injured. Maybe even more seriously, and would have been s.o.l. when it comes to eligibility for next year. I know this season is barely underway, but i cant wait for next year already with a better seasoned o-line AND BM back.
Speaking of next year, what are people's thoughts on Braxton's return? Will he have to battle JT to regain the starting position? Will JT's performance this season, as it unfolds, have any impact on that decision? Or is Braxton, no matter what happens, the man for next year?
Prolly waaaaaay to early to ask these, but I just cant help myself.
Yes we do need to worry. We all know how important "perception" is in college football. The talking heads at ESPN will surely use it against anything positive for the Buckeyes.
Wow, VT is getting dismantled by East Carolina. EAST CAROLINA. Not a good omen for us.
Cherries Waffles Tennis is a Michigan fan.
I don't have a problem with his critique of the defense. However, I am from the south side..... Sooooooo.... Downvote from me, asshat.
My dear mother gets CBS Sports Net (just found out). Driving up to Columbus Saturday morning "so she can have a visit with the grandchildren." Plus she usually has her fridge stocked with interesting micro brews. What a great mother. Lover her!
I blame our poor secondary play in that game on Fickell.
BTW, MMan, i sat down and had cocktails with Bobby Morrison while on vacation in Northern Ontario a few weeks ago. He saw my Ohio State shirt and gave me shit. Anyway, interesting and fun to talk with.
When i first glanced at Penn State's cover I read "Unravelled".
Wow! I didn't realize it was possible to have longer arms than Alonzo Spellman!
I LOVE successful "walk-on" stories. Bobby Olive comes to mind having re-watched the 1988 victory over LSU. He was not on anyone's radar, not even close. Like gold, some valuable nuggets are hidden deep and where you least expect.
Tom Tupa had a great NFL career. As a buckeye he could slam that ball off his foot for 70+ yards. Doesn't he have the record for longest punt?
Oh yea, almost forgot... Ability to orchestrate an AMAZING comeback; Greg Frey. That balding guy made one of my all time favorite games to watch. I can watch it over and over again.
dropping back into the pocket and standing there; Jim Karsatos
No matter how he progresses or how good he gets he will never be a 5 star athlete in ESPN's eye because he will not be going to and SEC school.
This me watching his highlights. Sharp, smart, and even willing to block downfield!
Craft is my kind of nerd.
Which is exactly why KG would make a GREAT NFL quarterback. He has a great presence on the field and is a good leader. On top of that he is a skilled passer. I have always thought he is pro caliber. I hope he is the diamond in the rough. He deserves it.
I remember getting manhandled by Fickell in high school. I had to resort to tackling him and holding onto his ankles so he wouldnt get to my quarterback every play. He complained to the refs about it, but they didnt call me on it. Prolly because they felt bad for me. Anyway, much respect for Luke and I do not pin all of last season's defensive woes on him. I think there was a lack of player leadership in the backfield (among other things) with a very talented Roby who just wanted to make it through the season injury free while counting down the days to the NFL draft.
Younger minds a more "teachable". Urban will have him playing as close to perfection as one can play by the end of his eligibility.
