Pick up a pitchfork or go home buddy, we don't need your positivity!
On that last one, I can't believe that! They totally compounded one mistake by making two more and now they've basically given away 3 points. Just terrible coaching.
Let's all wildly speculate! Does Raekwon really spell his name "Rayquan," but Urban misspelled it and refuses to change it? Should Zeke move to fullback since he's such a great blocker? Adolphus Washington is the only good tackle on the roster, should we consider cloning him, or is that unethical? I heard Nick Bosa is only coming to OSU because Urban promised him a starting QB job!
As others have said, I generally avoid the chat and sometimes even the site on gamedays. It does tend to bring out the worst in people as well as the trolls, especially with the new format. I do like most of the folks who frequent the site, but I'm here more for the Buckeye coverage than devotion to the forum/comments. Even the best of us are capable of doing some really dumb shit when we know we're anonymous.
Thad has sad he's better coming in the Diebler was. Now, getting to the level Diebler left at is another thing entirely, but I think he's going to have a big impact on this year's team.
Ok, I have to ask, is that last guys name pronounced Car-teh-air, or Cart-air? Or something else? Carter?
I would hope so! If there's two guys that are almost equal though I'm always happy if OSU gets the Ohioan. That being said I would take Kmet in a heartbeat. Couldn't go wrong with either.
Thank god we've got football to distract us during this slow period in recruiting!
If he's caused them both to regress in the short time he's been here, that would be pretty damn impressive. It's some combination of us losing our playcaller of the last 3 years, Cardale having some natural regression from playing better than anyone could have expected against 3 great teams, worse than expected blocking from a more-than-talented-enough line, JT being rusty coming off of a serious injury, a lack of continuity due to the competition, losing our top deep ball threat who kept defenses honest, and losing some crucial senior leadership. It's not some single-entity easy answer or Urban would've fixed it by now.
To be fair though, the line's not doin a very good job of clearing lanes in the middle.
I really like McCaffery. Was a big fan of his dad too. The younger one looks like he's going to make that name his own though.
Twitter is a part of, well, everything anymore, especially sports. 11W staff wouldn't be doing their jobs if they ignored it. I don't care for Twitter, but it's not going anywhere.
The D looks championship-ready today. That really makes me feel much better about this team, because the offense will figure it out. We've got Urban Freakin Meyer. I'm looking forward to seeing this team improve over the course of the year, similar to last year.
Best WR in CFB. Proud of the way he's improved himself and he's earned that title.
For what it's worth, after halftime only JT and Collier were warming up. I didn't think Cardale had even come out of the tunnel till I saw Cardale was just walking around the sideline without his helmet on.
That's just ridiculous. If they can't play unless we're cheering for them, how come they didn't lose at VT?
I was there, the fans were fully behind the defense. They knew who was keeping us in it today and they appreciated it. But it's not exciting to see us grind out a win against NIU no matter how well our D is playing. I don't blame the crowd one bit, and as for OP comparing it to Bama-Ole Miss, come on. That's a top 15 matchup at night and it was the very start of the game. Totally different atmosphere. Do you think they were going crazy against MTSU? And they've quieted down now that the team's getting pushed around.
Aqib Talib and Chris Harris. Might be the top CB duo in the NFL.
In case someone else is as curious as I about #SurrenderCobra, I have you covered.
Welp, I'm not a special snowflake. Kudos to the other two who posted at the same time lol.
They've gotten some good recruits the last several years, including Goodluck Okonoboh, who Thad went after hard.
It's been a while now, so I could be remembering this incorrectly, but back then the scuttlebutt was that we didn't stand a chance for Payne because he played AAU ball with Sully and was tired of being overshadowed by him.
Football is very different though. There are only 13 players on a basketball team, and fewer minutes to go around. Plus you can leave after one year, so there's little incentive to sit and learn these days.
