Another Coach Coombs plug from a recruit/high school coach. Say what you will about the man, I for one am glad he is on our side.
Lookalike Buck-I-Guys would be funny. As much as I would not prefer to see multiple versions of that clown, I bet he would get PISSED when he saw the impostors :)
Can't agree more. Just watched his junior film and can now plainly see why offer lists > recruiting site position rankings. 9 SEC offers plus Texas, ND, and The U among his other suitors but he is somehow rated between 76th-82nd in the state of Florida.
Agreed. Glad anytime the Bucks get a player from the Peach State. Cam Heyward, Roby, Vonn Bell, and Kwon... Keep em' coming!
Carlton Davis has a criminally low ranking as well. He's got a great mix of coverage/ball skills and run support/tackling ability.
Norwood plays for Valdosta.
Different teams for sure, but Bama lost in the Sugar last year. They were a 17 point favorite and lost by 14 to Oklahoma, FWIW.
I was about to call Taylor Decker "JB" with those false starts. Still trying to figure out how the most experienced member of the unit takes the most penalties...
Both lines played out of their minds last night. I wonder how much Wisky losing their center early in the 1st impacted their line calls.
I'll be repping NW Ohio in Secion 612. Go Bucks!
Is it a conference-wide rule? I know several MAC schools started selling this year, the Golden Gophers from the BIG Ten as well.
Anyone know if beer is sold at the game? Not sure since it is a college event held at a pro stadium... Thanks!
Totally agree. The Buckeye offense needs to adopt a "We're playing ourselves every week" mentality. Find an identity and play that style of football regardless of opponent. Tom's genius status basically allows him to out-think himself too often.
Herman will have to call a great game. Utilize the tight ends; Heuerman with 16 catches at this point in the season is inexcusable. I know this team lacks a true FB, but I can't see how anyone could match up with #86 coming out of the backfield...
It took an entire half yesterday to employ some outside runs. Pitches, sweeps, screens... We need more than inside run, option run, and predictably throw on 3rd down. Someone other than EZE and Cardale needs to shoulder some of the load.
Wisky can be beaten. Northwestern topped them and they got past a pretty mediocre Iowa team by 2, FWIW.
I didn't like the call on Cardale's 1st snap, which was a designed QB keep. I agreed with Dom Tiberi, that a sneak from under center sounded like a better call there.
The offense needs QB runs in the right situations. Some designed passes break down and JT chooses to keep on reads, but our QB is asked to run on designed keeps TOO MUCH. Today was the 4th time this season Barrett has more rushing attempts than completed passes. It was also the 6th time he has had at least 15 carries in a game. I thought for sure Dunn earned at least a carry with his great special teams play on the kickoff, but I guess not. Jalin had one carry, as did Curtis Samuel.
I think so. Via ESPiN Stats & Info: Ohio State has allowed the fewest plays (17) of 20 yards or longer in the nation. Last night was a shootout. I really like what I see from Apple, Powell, and Grant. Conley and Reeves(when healthy) get picked on and safety/corner miscommunications have occured, but I think the Bucks have improved as a unit. They are also defending the screens much better this year.
It must be the Alex Anzalone Curse! The dude is like the defensive version of Gunner Kiel.
"Everyone" is likely taking out student loans to pay for their education and should obviously be allowed to do as they please. However, scholarship athletes are getting a free college education and must abide by certain rules.
I know right... Best of luck to Rod. 4TD on 24 carries wasn't too shabby!
I sure hope Rod Smith gets some carries against the Illini. He has paid his dues and has ran hard in limited duty. EZE hasn't done anything to lose carries, but it seems like a bruiser-type back would help compensate for our so-so run blocking.
Jalin needs to touch the ball more. Period. Dontre has his moments and idk if Curtis Samuel is still dinged up... But Marshall is electric with the ball in his hands and I love his physical running style.
I remember Jim Lachey commenting that the Bucks were trying to speed things up but the referees were letting Penn St. get set defensively before spotting the ball so OSU could snap. I was zoned into the game and didn't notice, but old Lachey is pretty good at spotting penalties and things the causal fan will miss, FWIW...
Still wondering "what if" Watkins was catching passes for Cleveland. He fell into their lap and they passed on him knowing they had 0 playmakers. Hoyer would be fine if he had more offensive talent around him than J. Cameron and some re-treads.
I saw Tyquan Lewis get some reps in the 2nd half around the time Schutt came in. Don't recall seeing Jayln Holmes on the field at all... I thought Chris Carter Jr. would be able to eat up some space in the middle and spell Bennett/Washington, but he hasn't played much if any meaningful snaps.
Cameron Johnston is a stud! I bet The Vest daydreams about coaching #95 while contemplating backgammon moves.
