That's an interesting thought. I think that they definitely throw in extra plays that they don't plan on using again against weak opponents so that strong opponents must game plan for them. This may add to lackluster performances and seemingly odd play calling. I don't know whether this can completely account for it or it is like you suggested a intentional attempt to hide the teams strengths.

Saban knows that our team speed is at least equal to his, potentially even greater due to the extreme focus that Meyer places on speed.  I really hope that some of his players don't believe him when he tells them this because that would be a huge boon to our odds.

I know that it has been stated to the point of being a cliche, but Meyer really did build Ohio State into an SEC type of team.  Anyone that truly believes that Urban Meyer's team the third year of his tenure will be slow needs to pinch themselves.

We need to really work hard next year developing some defensive backs because I really doubt Vonn Bell will be back after next year.  Eli Apple may also be in the same boat.

I agree that he would be a great asset to recruiting.  Maybe he can be Pantoni's second in command.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

That sucks.  He could have gone pro but stayed behind to take a shot at winning with his college team.  I respect that and feel sorry that he now can't participate in that goal, but also will significantly lose momentum towards a pro career.

FauxPelini's still got it

Comment 16 Dec 2014

The 2013 class was the first one that I paid attention to during recruiting. I, like most others, had high expectations that bordered on unrealistic, but I didn't expect this level of play out of so many of them at such a still young age. You can follow it or ignore it, but Meyer's recruiting is why we are in the playoffs this year just as much as his coaching.

I could be completely wrong but I think Cager was moving away from us anyways and just used Herman's departure as a public explanation.

I saw that Plain Dealer article yesterday and thought about posting it but I figured there was a chance that it would end up in today's skull session. I can't wait to see what Campbell can do.  He has a lot less hype than other fast H-backs, and that may be a good thing.

If a Buckeye doesn't win the Heisman next year there is a good chance that it is because all the other Buckeye talent played so well that it kept the attention off of one individual.

I had a similar thought when I saw his tape a while back. I definitely think someone will get moved there from defensive back, and I think Ward, EGW, or Briscoe would all be very good options. My favorite is Ward personally because of his crazy 40 yard time, but any of them would be great if they are given time to learn the position. 

Comment 11 Dec 2014

If Cardale goes pro I very much doubt that he will be undrafted. If he is going pro it will be because he has assurances that he will be drafted, if he doesn't have justified confidence that he will be drafted I really don't think he will go pro. This is just my opinion.

I'll bet if you looked close enough in Texas around the same time or even just a few days ago you'd find a TCU or Baylor alt jersey with the same swoosh  (assuming they are Nike teams, which I have no idea about either way).

I think they'd make a movie out of it.  Basically it'd be like Remember the Titans without the race stuff.

We are so lucky to have a walk on with that skill and athleticism at a position where he's most needed. 

Comment 09 Dec 2014

I'm glad Devin Smith's hard work is going to really amount to a good payday in the end. He's been so important to us over the last few years and he couldn't be putting it all together at a better time.

Gibson's ceiling at quarterback is ridiculously high. He could have the speed of Braxton Miller, the stiff arm and size of Terelle Pryor, the arm strength of Cardale Jones, and the grit of JT Barrett if he reaches his potential. Personally, I have no problem what so ever letting him focus exclusively on quarterback in case he reaches even a fraction of his true potential.
