We may not have the BEST team in the country at this moment in time, but we are still #1 until that is taken away by a loss. Those are the RULES! LOL
Devin excelled at making adjustments while the ball was in the air and placing his body between the defender and the ball so that only he could catch it. The only way to keep him from catching it was to interfere. It is those ball skills that I see lacking, especially on the underthrows.
It is time for this offense to gel. There is no acceptable excuse for not breaking out of the funk against WMU.
But Arkansas really looked good. They should be in the top 15.
Switching QBs can also upset the timing of the OL with slightly different cadence or rhythm. You may not see it or hear it, but the OL feels it.
I particularly like the block the official threw at the end of the run ...
We know at least three of those highly ranked SEC teams are not nearly as good as their ranking imply. How many more will be exposed?
On a bad day when they looked out of synch on offense, they won 38 -0. Is Gene Smith going to fire Urban? Is the sky falling? Should I cash in my life insurance?
And hate to play this card, but I think Urban knows a little bit more about football and the 2015 Buckeyes than us speculative internet posters, so I'm gonna side with him on this one. He made the right choice, for now.
I am with you. Just because I don't understand all the reasons for Urb's decisions does not mean I think he is wrong. He knows what he wants his players to do and knows who is better able to deliver on that day. I would have been fired half way through the first year, and that is giving me the benefit of the doubt. LOL
Sorry Bert, but the Buckeyes have at least four ranked opponents ahead, and we won't lose to any of them.
I seem to remember a defensive end doing something like that against Alabama last year ... :-)
Your pic just beat me to the punch.
... and Chase Farris was motoring down field just in case. That is over 300 pounds of slob. Don't discount the effort ..
... and that was his second block on that play ...
I am writing this from my hospital bed where I am recovering from whiplash and MCL surgery from simply watching THE SPIN.
The NCAA took away EZ's Jersey preference. Will they take away Braxton's SPIN move?
With Cardale, the offense seems to be more of a big play team and appears to this old couch potato as herky jerky in its approach. With J.T. I think they look more methodical and more efficient in using the entire offense. I am not suggesting the coaches were wrong in playing Cardale, I am simply sharing my opinion based on my observations - which are both questionable, at best. Maybe it was the VT defense that dictated the coaching decisions.
At half time EZ had only four runs (vs. Cardale's 9) for 105 yards. Urban did some half time correcting and the 2nd half was more like what we all expected.
Other than "THE MOVE" three things jumped out at me. 1. Vannett's seal block. He made one guy change direction, then got in another man's way, giving Brax a lane to the second level. 2. Zeke's block was vicious and gave B the time for his move. 3. #57 runs like a linebacker, not an O Lineman. He was flying down the field and I didn't know that Slobs could fly.
Eleventy seven. 117. But only this low because J.T. will have his 75, and Braxton his 125, and Curtis his 75.
Get better big guy. You are more important as the man and dad, Cardale Jones, than as the QB, 12 gauge. We look forward to seeing you back on the field -- soon.
"We're playing the No. 1 team in America with 16 or 17, probably, first or second round (draft) grade guys,"
And Loeffler has only looked at the Defense he is up against!!
Intimidate him. Put Sam Hubbard on him! :-)
Great stuff. This is what sets Eleven Warriors apart from all the others.
I long for my days in Ohio where the four seasons are -- 'Football, Recruiting, Spring Camp, and Waiting for football' -- instead of -- 'Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Road Construction.'
That is "every three years" NOT "every third year."
Birm. I think 25-30 catches, 750 yards and 7 or 8 TDs is a little too much to expect from even Braxton against the VT defense.
Wasn't Kenny G a captain?
