Wow, walk off touchdown for Corley, the focus on that play was impressive.
Speilman originally had decided on Xichigan and his dad called him a traitor and said something to the effect of, "I'll tell you where you're going to school straight down I-71, you're going to be a buckeye..." It was something to that tune.
Water under the bridge from last week for everyone who thought Zeke was out of line. I thought he spoke his mind and I gave him props for it, but there is a "time and a place" for everything. Go Bucks FUCK THE UNIVERSITY OF XICHIGAN!
Wow. That is insane, super impressive.
I see no doubt (short of him going to the NFL) that Jalin Marshall starts opposite Noah Brown, I like Hill in the slot because of his speed, and I like Gibson in the slot because of his speed and size. He's a matchup nightmare, but he has to be a solid route runner.
It's called conversation, kind of what a forum is made for.
I would do it slightly differently
QB: JT Barrett
RB: Mike Weber then Samuel as a H
HB: Curtis Samuel then Dontre Wilson
WR: Noah Brown
WR: KJ Hill/ Torrance Gibson (slot guys)
WR: Jalin Marshall
I think if you put Gibson and Hill in the slot (esp Gibson) that creates a size mismatch with nickel corners who tend to be a little smaller. I think Mike Weber has to start at RB next year to get the power running game moving.
Where I disagree is this, our offense has to PROVE that they can indeed throw the ball to keep the safeties honest before we can pound zeke and get those huge first downs like Indiana did. If Barrett can find a way to get the ball downfield to a couple WRs then I'll buy into Zeke destroying scums DLine.
This is for sure why Dontre Wilson will always have a soft spot in my heart. A true freshman, the biggest game of his career, and he's taking no shit from nobody.
Urban brings him up in just about every PC and raves about his blocking on special teams.
Given that zach smith has had what... Five or six pure WRs to work with in 4 years I would say he's done pretty well morphing a bunch of athletes who played mostly RB in high school into wide outs in college.
This year injuries killed zone 6 and made smiths job even tougher. I can't place a ton of blame on him for the bad play of the receivers, I mean in a dream world Gibson would've shown up and been the next Calvin Johnson immediately, but that's not how it works.
I think we can safely say jalin Marshall made a few strides this year or at least isn't worse, Parris Campbell is at least on pace to be a huge part of the team next year and at least his blocking is on par with anyone else's at least according to Meyer... Thomas is a future first rounder with a decent enough combine.
I understand when a player or coach says something totally out of line and completely buries the guys he plays with or the guys coaching him but zeke said what everyone already knew and it's not like he said they were awful coaches he said it was a bad game plan and bad play calling which we already knew. He didn't divulge information that was supposed to be kept behind closed doors, he spoke his mind.
this mindset that players have no right is absurd. Zeke is the best player on this offense and he got left out when we needed him most and that wasn't by his request the coaches just forgot he existed.
We will simply have to agree to disagree. If the offense plays poorly the coach is allowed to go to his PC and say "we got out played our guys weren't physical enough we didn't attack we didn't play tough enough" but if the coaches piss down their leg in terms of scheme and game plan, a player can't voice his displeasure? That's a double standard.
I can't say I disagree only time will tell. But too many people are discounting what urban Meyer has accomplished here over one loss.
I liked Elliott's honesty. This isn't the first or last time the better team gets out coached. This is football, it happens. The season only has a few weeks left, so let's try and enjoy the game with TTUN... Go Buckeyes
JT Barrett is a pure leader. I don't know where this team goes from here, but having him in the QBs room on a daily basis makes me feel good about the situation.
Those are all players who busted their ass and gave their best effort and were stifled by the job the coaching staff did. If they felt like walking out before the song, no issues by me.
No regrets on his part and everyone that's lambasting the team for this loss needs to just take a look back at what's been accomplished by the Buckeyes in the last year. Go bucks!
Still, he's just such a dynamic play maker... I just can't understand it.
Welcome home young man! Enjoy being a Buckeye, we're going to enjoy watching your career!
I cannot, for my LIFE figure out what in the hell the scouts have against Von Bell... All he ever does is make every play that comes his way. It's mind boggling.
It would appear that Jerry Jones has his ticket and will be in the house evaluating, incorrectly mind you, the talent on the field.
It's kind of crazy but I'm satisfied with '16 and already focusing more on '17... Maybe I should slow my roll...
