Grant can make or break his draft value with his play against Cooper if he can slow him down and dare I say shut him down, He will be able to control his draft stock lets get it. Grant boost yourself into the 1st round.
Funny Curtis Grant does that and we call him a bust.
I'm sorry but this is Ohio State if you are scared to compete for playing time you don't have enough confidence in yourself to be the best. So to Mr. Green goodluck
Best one all year I would send this to every single recruit.
Why are recruits worried about depth at a position? If your good you will play we werer stacked at running back but Zeke last year and Samuel this year jumped the entire depth chart. If your good why are you worried about depth that lets me know you are worried about your talent level.
JT didnt debut very well. it took a couple games. So lets say if he comes out like he did 3 or 4 games in to the season.
The good news is Jalin Marshall played QB in High School and knows the offense. Not saying Jones can't handle it but, don't be surprised if Jalin Marshall is in there throwing the ball.
Melvin gordon was good last year and he was a non factor against Ohio State including getting hurt in the third quarter I think. but he did return to continue to do nothing.
I agree for the last several years people have screamed for Brax and Kenny to be on the field at the same time, I think Brax and Barrett would be even more dynamic.
Yeah I am with you I don't think I would be able to take it and what if he did and both teams made the playoffs next year and he had to stare across the field at the Ohio State bench. I don't think he could see himself looking in the mirror wearing different college colors then Scarlet and Gray. On top of that it would destroy me.
My thing is look at barretts #'s on the year. He will probably go on to break every passing record in OSU history especially if he stays all 4 years. I would like to say he will break the rushing records for a QB too but I think his skill throwing the ball is too good for him to get those records. I am sure he will make the list of top 5 though by the end. Troy had 5700 yds passing if JT is the starter next year and Braxton moves on, god forbid, I think he will break that next year.
We always have great running backs. But what I want to see is who is going to be the next 1000 yrd receiver?
Ohio State fans need to relax, We need to root for Wisconsin to finish strong and get ranked a little higher preferably in the top 10 but I think 12 or better will work. Our SOS is already better than Baylors and TCU's and with Wisconsin we might just catch Miss St which is only ranked a couple spots ahead of us when is some to SOS. If we take care of business and look impressive doing it we will be in the playoffs. Ohio St VS Alabama in the Rose Bowl, Scarlet vs Crimson, Urban vs Saban. College Football needs that match up.
Makes me sick how little the basketball team is televised.
Everyone Welcome Jalin Marshall to the Big Show........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder if they know that Dobbs Sux??????????????????
I love how the Tenn fans are saying they are glad Tenn stopped recruiting Gibson. Are they serious like they know what the coaches are doing I think it's hilarious. And for the one that says they only go after hall of fame players they haven't had a hall of fame player since Payton Manning. are these fans for rea. I guess we all know who is doing to be trolling around the OSU boards this week telling us how bad MSU is going to beat us. Can't wait.
My guess is he is not worried about winning...... Good for him.
I do have to say something about EZ-E and Samuels. Samuels might be faster and more shifty but this is Ohio State and nothing is more buckeye than a power running back, and between the two EZ-E is the more rounded back. I would also like to see more Rob Smith than Samuels. It might just be me but I like a RB that can make people miss as well as punish a defender making him think twice or hesitate the next time he comes up to make the tackle. Thats what made Hyde so good after about a quarter and a half the defense didn't want to tackle him anymore because they knew it was going to be painful. That what EZ-E and Smith bring that Samuels doesn't. I would like to see Samuels in the H-back position with wilson and move Marshell out to WR where he was recruited. to get more speed on the outside with Devon Smith. But EZ-E is the best all around back we have elusive, shifty, power, and speed. I can just say I would like to see him run lower like Hyde did, he tends to be running tall. If you watch Hyde he was listed at 6'0 but when he ran it was like he was 5'3 he had a way of getting under the defender which gave him an advantage against defenders.
All I want to say is we have waited 9 month for Ohio State football and the season Opener is on a channel that most people don't have because it's on a larger package. This is BS how in the Hell is it not on a normal channel in Columbus G*d Dam* it. They did this with the BTN years ago now this I am sick of the TV schedule.
Although I would of Loved to have Marcus coming in off the bench I don't think we have anything to worry about with depth on the D-line the starters will wear an O-line down so quick in a game the backups will have no problem cleaning up when they get their chance.
I can't wait for the tweets of Michigan players to start rolling in especially the ones of the recruits that choose them of TOSU.
I don't see how as a Ohio kid you could visit a school in michidumb, when I was visiting school I was asked to come up to mSt I declined, because I would never cross the boarder unless it was to go hurt someone. If your from Ohio and you visit one of those schools. I don't even want you to come to OHIO STATE, just because you entertained the idea you are a trader.
So why is he in hot water all he did was stop the kid from swinging holding him till he gave up. I think he handled that situation very well. Was he supposed to let the dude punch him in the face. My guess is no, He stopped the fight with out anyone really being harmed. He held the guy till he gave up instead of actually fighting. I have been in a ton of fights in my life and that looked like trying to break a fight up more than fighting. Good Job Mr. Glover
OK so we had two even better thank you I forgor about that one
