Yep, their DB's are playing a lot like Sparty' secondary in 2013. Grabbing on every single play. If the refs are not calling it on them after the first series or two I would expect our secondary to adjust accordingly. Fight fire with fire. Also, I would think we would target Thomas a lot because he is big and physical enough to fight through some grabbing. Plus he has a nack for drawing P.I. penalties.
Last year I recall in the MSU an end around with Evan Spencer in the red zone where he brought the ball up like he was going to pass. Nothing was there and he ran the ball. I don't think OSU had ran that play up till then last year, but it was run just before half in the bama game if anyone recalls (rhetorical).
The Buckeyes next two opponents are top 20 in rush defence. If they meet Iowa in B1G Championship game it would be a third straight opponent with top 20 run D nationally. All those 100 yard games along with a strong showing in the next few games should net Zeke the Heisman.
Nah, definitely more Uncle9er.
Wind.......lots of wind.

Did they pay any attention to the bowl games last year.

53.55% now. We need to keep voting.
He has 3 SEC teams in the top 5. Can you say homer?
He did have that one pop pass, which shows he can do at least that. I would like to see him at least pull the ball up to above his right shoulder pad for a split second like he was going to throw the ball. Cardale did the exact same thing on his QB draws against Minn and Miller has done that may times in previous years on a called QB draw. This will freez the defense and at least give Braxton a punchers chance rather than the defense just pinning their ears back.
Probably the only thing that will happen is the "or" will be on the QB depth chart later in the week. Similar to Bosa and Hubbard after Bosa was suspended earlier this season.
I took it as it's JT's to take, it's not an open competition but he just has to take it rather than it being handed to him. Meaning JT has to put that whole OVI thing behind him and have a good week at practice. Another example of Urban using his psychology degree.
I love Bells ability to learn and recognize from film and, as Kyle stated above, in game alignments. I believe that is what makes him stand out on an great defence.
And presumably a giant cupcake from Mrs. Ash.
A lot of those instincts come from film study according to what I have read on this site in the past. He said they had run that play earlier in the game in the post game interview. It was a play where someone else picks/rubs him and he knew where the ball was going and had to make a play.
Gotta love the recognition and execution on Bells behalf. It's what makes him sooo great.
I'm glad he's a Buckeye for the way he is on and off the field. Lee was talked about a lot by the media because of his dynamic and flashy play (no disrespect to Lee). Perry is more of a lunch pale guy. He's not likely to make the flashy plays but is the most consistent of the linebackers. Heck, he lead the team in tackles last season.
It will be replayed on B1G Network Monday 11/9 at 10:30 PM. I've got my DVR set accordingly.
Thanks for the bump. Voted. 53.91%
Fear Free the man bun.
My brother is two years older than me. At Thanksgiving dinner when he was two years and a few months old and I was an infant, there was plenty extended family around. Just after grace was said and it was perfectly quiet my brother said "where's my fucking spoon". My uncles (Dads side of family) are trying not to Crack up, while elbowing each other in the ribs. My brother said it again after no one replies (probably cought off guard). Finally my Grandmother (Mom's side of family) says "oh, you want your fork and spoon".
Hey, it won us a National Championship. If it's not broke, don't fix it.
If I remember correctly he had 70-ish TD's to 2 or 3 Int's his Senior year in HS. That's video game numbers there.
Love the Christmas Vacation reference.
