Sully appears at 0:17 and 0:53
This is missing Sylvester for Three!!!
Anyone know if players from last year's squad (i.e. John Simon, or Zach Boren) received these game balls as well? They were certainly instrumental in the winning streak.
I thought it was a half page ad that PSU paid for.
Anyone have any info on why Della Valle didn't dress for tonight's game? Saw him on the bench in a suit and right before half.
Thanks Vrabel for 3 great years!
Under the circumstances (i.e. no Spence & no Roby), I would say our defense played better than I had expected. Coach Fickell may or may not need to be replaced, but as Maurice Clarett said last night:
Has Fickell made mistakes this game/season? Absolutely! But so has everyone else on this team AND coaching staff. I saw a lot of missed tackles last night, and throughout the season, especially behind the line of scrimmage. I don't understand why so many fans feel compelled to be so malicious and vile towards Fickell. Of course there are frustrations and this certainly isn't the level of defense we had recently been accustomed too during the Mike Doss to AJ Hawk through the James Laurinaitis years. But this is a man, first and foremost, and we call out classless/fake fans for threatening players but we don't hold ourselves to any high responsibility when it comes to calling out and threatening coaches? This guy was thrown into the fire, in the aftermath of the post-TP mess, a mere 3 months before camp began and managed 6 wins (including one of the best wins in Buckeye and E2B History over Berty & Co.)! Fickell just got us the #1 ILB of the 2014 class. Granted defensive changes need to happen, I'm not sure if that means letting Fickell go, or simply stripping him of his DC title, but lets lay off the death threats and vulgarities towards him and hold ourselves to a higher standard; none of us here in this community could have done any better with this team or last night against Clemson. Chad Morris was on Urban's radar for assistant coaches, so that alone should tell you the caliber level offense our young D was going to be up against. Sammy Watkins is a special talent, just like Tedd Ginn was here (especially at the Fiesta Bowl against ND). If you're honest with yourself, I doubt Roby would've fared much better against him, especially on a bum knee. I don't know what the exact best or the right solution is for fixing the defense, if anything it seems to be more than just replacing 1 assistant coach; but in any case, can we at least remember that at the end of the day Fickell is a man, husband, father, and a Buckeye, as well as a coach, and though he may warrant some blame for the latter, he ultimately deserves our respect for the former(s).
I'm sure he'll get 100 but I'm gonna guess Meyer, Herman, and Drayton give Hall, Elliot, and Wilson some touches tonight; and Miller will do his thing of course. Rotating fresh RBs behind the B1G's best O-Line is gonna help in wearing down MSU's front seven.
2006 - Because of THIS.
4:00pm? I thought the game is at 7:00pm?
OSU 52 - Buffalo 20
Saine was released from the Packers before the draft because of a failed physical. He's currently a free-agent.
This is one of my favorite OSU hype vids.... Great Music and Great Timing + Bashing Mark May + Paul Keels voice-over. So many good memories from the 2010 team.
Too bad there's not an "all of the above" choice b/c all of these in one game would just be mind-blowing! I would also love to see Roby score a pick-6 against Gardner and outrun Robinson to the endzone.
Posey and Sanzenbacher both scored TDs in their preseason games last night:
Best wishes to Gonzo. Definitely one of my favorite Buckeyes ever. You forgot This.
I love this.
Good Luck Sully! Thanks for EVERYTHING!
How could you leave out this?
Here is the 2010 article from the Dispatch when they filmed some scenes in the 'Shoe. The article notes some parts were filmed in Coshocton & Fredericktown but much of it was filmed near Grand Rapids, (Up North).
Seems to me as though we are still trying to run last year's offense w/ this year's personnel. We aren't able to productively have 2 bigs on the floor at the like last year when we were able to have Lauderdale & Sully in the effectively controlling the post defensively protecting the paint. Thomas & Buford are no Lighty & Diebler (obvs) yet for some reason Matta still depends on them in the Offensive sets as if they were. I would like to see Buford become more of a 'slasher/take it to the hoop finisher' and stop always settling for jumpers/camping out at the 3 pt line. Matta really needs to adjust his offensive sets to fit the strengths of this year's personnel.
Thanks a lot Gene Smith... I wouldn't stand too close to Simon on senior day in November.
MVP = Dan 'Boom' Herron
Unfortunately Dane leads the team in drops.
Can you imagine John Simon version 4.0, after an offseason under Marotti? Also is there any updates on Verlon Reed? Will he be able to play in the bowl? The man was coming along nicely before his injury.
