It's amazing how douchey the NFL and NCAA is. As long as the people in charge get their pockets lined they don't give a shit about anyone else!
LJ could be the head man at Maryland by the time any 2016 players make it to him.
I bet Meyer doesn't grow a pass w Braxton until the msu game. He will run all season out of shotgun until that game when he comes in and surprises everyone w a 60 yard bomb to Thomas who is covered 1-1 cuz msu put 9 in the box. The the camera pans to dantonio with his jaw dropped and back to Meyer with a coy grin!
Shazier is real close to becoming Kendrell Bell 2.0. He has all the speed and talent in the world but if you can't stay on the field it doesn't mean shit!
Once Ohio legalizes weed will the OSU athletic department remain in the Stone Age too? Or if the kids are truly adults will coaches let them make their own decisions?
Thanks for the info! Crazy how 5-6lbs can make such a big difference!
I don't feel like most fans who actually watch the games are immune to normal college football. The scUM game we looked normal against an inferior team. Wisconsin is probably what made people delusional. Bama kicked our ass the entire 1st quarter and into the 2nd, and we had 4 turnovers against the Ducks. Lets be honest most fans think we are unbeatable. REAL FANS REMBER THE 90s(or know the history)!! Everyone who does will always despise everything north of Toledo even if the present dominance continues. Real fans know this is college football, Anything can happen any given Saturdy! A win is a win is a win enjoy as manny as possible. Ask Brax or any other redshirt senior what can happen to a program in a given year.
Ohio State has also loss the turnover battle in the last 2 games 7-3.
Pretty cool to be 19 and a World Champion. Glad he's a Buckeye! We have any other OSU kids competing? Steiber?
I think it would be genius to switch starting QBs throughout the season. Not switching back and forth during games but a different for each game and sticking with him. Barrett should have been the starter though against VT w this logic. He runs the option better and has more accuracy against the man coverage. Cardale would come in against teams who we need to take the top off of example a team like Bama to open it up. It would keep every team guessing and would be unpredictable. I don't think it will happen but would be awesome!
I thought Schutt looked Ok for his 1st game as a starter. Seemed to be in the backfield a lot and made a couple plays. He looked better against the pass than the run but like I said for his first start he did fine. I think Kwon was stout in the first quarter and at the goal line but didn't play a complete game. He will get more comfortable with time though now that he doesn't have grant to lean on. I thought Thomas could have been better and didn't do much until the game was out of reach. The action didn't match his hype, atleast not from this site. All in all though it was a pretty typical first game. I'm curious to see the Western Mich game, the next 2 will be snoozers though.
IDC what he's said over the years I'll always remember Herb forgiving the huge underdog Buckeyes the nod against the Miami Hurricanes. Correct me I'd I'm wrong but I think he damn near named the score w his prediction.
The people worrying about the changing of the atmosphere or the pitfalls of this situation are just plain wrong. Students won't be able to afford $8-10 beers, especially enough to get drunk enough to cause a disturbance. The drunks who do cause disturbances will already be plenty hammered from tailgating and sneaking In Whatever they want as they always have. This is more for the people who don't really tailgate and want to spend a few bucks on a couple drinks during the game. No more no less. Compare it to gay marriage, it has always been around in some way or another, people cried how terrible it would be if legalised, it happened and nothing has changed. The people who it helps are happy, the people who against havent been affected in the least. Because the more things change the more they stay the same.
More compensation for the school same compensation for the players who put the fans in the seats to make the money. The football team already keeps afloat about 25 OSU athletic programs, but the extra revenue should definitely not go to helping the players who are risking life and limb. seems legit!
Anyone else see the Red Army documentary about the their hockey team? It's excellent, definitely worth the 1.50 at Red Box!!!!
They couldn't play without each other. Some did play in the NHL they couldn't really hack it because it wasn't the system or style they were groomed to play in from birth. But I do think Detroit did win a cup with an all Russian line that when put together did magical things with the puck.
Can anyone review years past and see if there is a correlation between when a player looses his stripe and see if he had any impact as a freshmen? Or anyone who was close to last at losing their stripe and is now a star? Just think it would be cool to see what history can tell us is this case.
Did anyone read the overview about Tennessees Marcus Jackson? He was below Bosa on the Roto link. Said he could POSSIBLY be out for the season, which wasn't the shocker. It was the next sentence that said "In fact, a fellow starting offensive lineman has already asked to take Jackson's No. 75 jersey." Like Really? A teammate goes down only POSSIBLY for his entire senior season and you're worried about poaching his number? Am I wrong or does this just feel disrespectful? Please tell me no one on the Buckeys was asking to change to #5 right after Braxton blew his arm out! Teammates should have a lot more to worry about when a comrade goes down instead of jacking his jersey number.
Grade school kids are parrots of course they say don't do drugs now, it's easy, give it 10 years and it won't be as easy. This isn't that big of deal. They made a decision that should be theirs to make not someone else's or they fell behind a little in school. Thats it, life will move on! They didnt screw the world, its not totally appalling and indefensible, it's not the end of days. No need to label them bad kids or think any less of them.
I think we seen Mo in the best Buckeye scenario that he could have been in. Ball control O, massive OLine, and a D that got the ball back quick. Ya it would be cool to see how he'd handle an option, and what he could do with Meyer but Tres was the coach for him. I even think Guapo if all else was even would have been better in a Tressel O. Players like Saine and Ginn though would be incredible to watch with Meyer!!
Man 10 commits for 2017 already is crazy. These kids still have learning permits and are making decisions about college. A lot of room to grow in either direction. Scary!
Braxton w Barrett starting should be 15/10-1 for the Heismen w Cardale he 30/40-1 at WR. Bubble screens, quick outs, and slants will be easy for him to pick up on and don't need a lot of route running prowess. 50 yard bombs on the other hand are hard to adjust to. Barrett will prob see 90% of the snaps by the end of the year. About 60% in the begging though which probably won't give Braxton enough time to pad his stats against scrubs.
See I told everyone Braxton would be a starter, just didn't say where..
If the OLine is even half as good as they were last year there is no way this team loses a regular season game. 2 holds ALL year is pretty sick though, so I won't complain about 4 lol
This is the first I'm hearing of Sling TV and looking at their website it looks to good to be true. Only thing they need to learn to get around is the need of wifi. As soon as a company starts up that's strictly for wifi and can undercut the cable companies it will be the end of cable TV as we know it today. And if you do decide to do sling feel free to reply to any comment of mine and let us all know how it goes.
