I still have hope for a B1G championship and spot in the playoff. What I'm looking forward to most, though, is seeing this team mature and develop into the astounding potential that is there.
I remember thinking the same thing during the game. 'Why are 5 and 1 not seeing the field??? Hmm, maybe UFM doesn't want to break them in in such high pressure situations.'
But really, wouldn't you want to throw them in the deep end and see if they can swim? Would the game be lost in the first half if they see the field for a couple of series and make some mistakes? Probably not, but who knows.
Sweetwater 420 draft, not bottled
Classic...I wish I could upvote this!
Wilson - 124
Good luck to Akron in overcoming the tragedies....especially against Penn St this week.
I have a feeling we Buckeye fans are going to end up despising James Franklin as much as UT fans did when he was at Vandy!
I don't care how many points Wiscy loses by as long as they lose! I was pulling for them on Saturday as I can't stand Les Miles, LSU or the SEC homers, but they totally blew that game and now I can't pull for them anymore!!!
Yes, I heard that too.
I haven't read much here concerning the special teams play in all the preseason articles, but the new kicker was one of my main concerns outside of the OL and Pass D. It was great to see Das Boot perfect through the uprights. Anybody know the % of kickoffs for touchbacks?
Didn't JT Moore switch to TE? I haven't heard anything about him of late.
When you got it, you got it! I'll be here all day with amazingly insightful comments!
Awesome writeup! The short passing game should work wonders against this defense.
I'm glad Heuerman is playing, but like most comments, I'd rather see him healthy. I'm anxious to see what Marcus Baugh can bring to the table as there hasn't been much talk of him. Didn't Sam Hubbard move to TE as well?
Yes. UFM seems to be a great motivator and psychologist.
Spurrier was born in FL, but went to high school in TN. A lot of UT fans despise him because they feel he spurned them for UF, but he was not really recruited by UT.
I like the way JT read the crossing routes in the spring game. Those can really turn into some nice gains with the speed we have at H/WR.
I'm pulling for Bell. Having lived in TN for the past 18 yrs, I've had to put up with the UT fans and SEC homers. My office mate (huge UT fan) and I were following the recruitment of Bell very closely. Bell supposedly grew up a big UT fan and coming down to Bell's announcement, he was very confident Bell would pick the Volunteers. We were watching the press conference at work and when Bell chose the Buckeyes, my friend jumped up and yelled "That's bullshit...he had Tennessee sheets on his bed growing up! How the F is he going to pick Ohio State???" I just sat there with a huge shit-eating grin on my face. The satisfaction I feel reminiscing that moment is such a great thing! Hopefully Bell will have a great career as a Buckeye and I can rub it in for a long, long time! Here's to you Vonn and Go Bucks!!!
Agreed. I think we've all been waiting on Grant to develop into the beast we thought he would be from day 1. Hopefully the new defensive scheme will help him play a faster more reactive game with less thinking involved.
Not trying for the tickets. Just wanted to thank all our veterans and active military for their service!!! I also want to send a shout out to my fellow Buckeye fans living in SEC country...keep fighting the good fight!
Can't believe I just discovered this site last week, but extremely glad I did!
