My favorite angle of this hit is from the opposite end-zone, where you can see a group of students(?) with their jaws dropped after they saw the hit. If I find it I'll post it.
To me he would be in the Darren Lee role. He would give up a little on the run support, but give you more in coverage. He is such a versatile athlete, strong and really athletic.
+1 We weren't going to tip our hand for Oklahoma against teams like BGSU and Tulsa. Something tells me this kid is hearing it from coaches.
Our interior d-line will be key for us, if we can keep Perine from ripping off big chunks of yards on the ground then we will be in good shape. Unfortunately we don't start a guy named Ed Oliver, but we have talent that just needs to be more consistent.
With Mixon, you just need to limit him in space and get him on the ground. That is a job all 11 guys on defense need to follow through with.
Our secondary is looking really good, but this will be a big test for them. Baker will be the best QB they face all regular season. Hooker was able to read the QB's eyes the last couple of games and get picks, but Mayfield is experienced enough to be able to look him off and recognize when he cheats over like that.
We are a better overall team than Houston, and they had some luck against Oklahoma. If our offense comes out guns blazing we should be okay, but the defense isn't going to be able to carry us until our offense figures it out in the second half. Oklahoma will get some big plays because they are just that good, we can't get into a hole and let them start running the clock out.
Think of how annoying trolls are when they come to 11W. I would like to think most of us try to have rational discussions regarding Buckeye sports and our upcoming opponents, those guys at _goblog are the same, even though they are misguided. If you feel compelled to express your opinions in a genuine manner over there go ahead, but trolling only makes you look like a jackass IMO.
It's assumed Jones ate the competition after pancaking them and covering them in maple syrup, and his team went undefeated.
That sounds more accurate, because f*** salads.
Our receivers were really impressive last Saturday, even though it was only BG, so much athleticism in that unit.
I hope Sark has had enough time to straighten up his life. Alcoholism is a real disease, and the stresses of coaching in CFB don't help.
Serious question, was Cooper ever really young.
No consistent penetration from the d-line, soft LB play. Secondary should have gotten burned a couple of times, but got bailed out by a couple drops.
I will say this. Neither the offense or defense showed too much schematically. Defensively, I didn't see too many blitzes and I think we will see much of the same next week for Tulsa, another team we should handle with ease based on talent alone. UFM, Schiano and Fickell aren't going to show their full arsenal before the trip to Norman.
Totally agree with you, I respect a reporter who doesn't ask the "layup" questions to public figures. He really tried to get past Saban's prepackaged response, and Saban felt the heat of it.
To be fair, Urban didn't rescind the scholarship offer, he just asked a guy to enroll against the year after given the current state of affairs. I know it doesn't make it much better but, at the same time if a guy is that committed to your school and you have a chance to bring in a couple of other guys that can help your team win maybe you ask him to take one for the team.
I know the situation isn't quite that cut and dry, but he still could have come to Ohio State and competed.
Either way, he is a great kid, judging off of his statement, and I wish nothing but the best for him at Pitt, I will be rooting for him.
No joke on Scarborough.
I feel like Gibson needs to play this year. He's too tall, fast and athletic to keep on the bench. He's also a body type that we do not have. Parris Campbell disappeared after that drop against VT, no knock on him, but I hope that drop didn't wreck his confidence. I was really excited about Parris and Clark when they signed, but I don't know what to expect at this point after not seeing much after 2-3 years. With C. Smith, Noah Brown, D. Wilson and Curtis Samuel back, I think only two other guys will see significant time. I hope one of those is Gibson, because the guy made the switch to receiver when others would have transferred. If Mack is ready to see some reps then more power to him, but I think we will see more Campbell.
Trichel strikes again.
Our video department is unreal kudos to Trichel, and Sammy Silverman with the graphic art is ridiculous as well. All aspects of this program are top notch, give all the credit in the world to Urbz and his attention to detail. He knows what it takes to get a recruit's attention and to motivate a group of 18-20 year olds.
This season is going to have it's ups and downs, and JT Barrett is going to be responsible for a lot of the ups. If he stays healthy, we got a shot to beat anyone.
I get a feeling Sumlin's seat is going to get hot soon. So it will be interesting to see what happens over the course of the season.
Because he is on vacation, dude. He probably was just planning to visit his family and take a break from the recruiting thing. I'm sure these guys get tired of being constantly recruited, it has to feel like a job to them at times. The guys who commit early probably do so because they are tired of the process of being recruited and want to end it. The fact the he is visiting says a lot, but if he didn't visit this week he still had 10+ months to do so.
From a talent standpoint he looks like a Johnny Manziel 2.0. His arm is live, and he looks really quick. I like him a bit more than the PA QB that's coming to visit.
Yeah, I don't think this is going to help them with their ratings issues. Not that I care about their lightened pockets.
