I have no idea why, but I always felt like I didn't like the idea of a defensive linemen whose "specialty" was to just rush the passer.  You always want the bosa, the "total package."  A run stuffer, and a QB killer, but I really love the way all of this sounds.  Putting our darts on the field and sending them at the QB on third down is going to cause so much chaos, and help keep our every down linemen fresh.  I like where LJ's head is at for game planning.

Hopefully Holmes thrives in this roll and carves out a solid place for himself in the lineup.

With the lack of real game activity up to this point, and anything of interest to talk about when there aren't media available practice days, this staff has taken to updating everyone on every positional group, and battle.  It's been stated like a dozen times in 100 different articles that EGW is entrenched in the battle for a safety position... The staff has written the same articles over and over again about previewing this and that and about every single positional battle more than once... If anything legit happened or he broke through or get injured we would get a report.

Seeing as how they kick off against bowling green in just over a week, I'd say no news is good news.

We will know all we need to know about the Buckeyes come week 3 when they're walking out of Norman with a 2 TD victory!

Go Bucks!

Solid work as always Ramzy!

Chic needs a statue before all others.  And I know he's featured around campus, but there should be a giant bronze brutus statue somewhere around the stadium.

Urban Meyer heard that boom because of 10 STAR MONDAY! 

Sidenote, bummed to hear that Gibson was out with injury, no wonder we didn't hear much about him.  Hopefully he can get back on the field and be game ready here in the next few weeks.  I still hold that next year will be the year of the Gibson, this year he will need to put in the work to cement himself as a playmaker and future stud.

Brown has all the physical tools you could ever want in a legit #1 receiver.  From what practice footage we've seen, his hands appear to be the real deal too.  I love his physicality too, and this his size he can box out defenders and high point the ball from anywhere in the field.

I think if they open up the passing game like we're all hoping, Noah Brown could be incredibly special.

not that it makes it less funny, but that was a staged situation, that's Hogan's mom...

Comment 17 Aug 2016

I feel like if you pick a starter it's kind of a cop out.  You should expect a guy who is starting to make an impact, so that eliminates the likes of Noah Brown, Marcus Baugh, etc. for me...

I'm going to say TG is still a year away but I think he'll play.  He won't be a heavy impact type of guy, but I think he plays, probably has a TD or 2.

I think EGW, Jerome Baker, Dontre Wilson (yes that Dontre Wilson), KJ Hill, and Jonathan Cooper are my picks.

Bosa is an honorable mention but I feel like he's another guy that's expected to make an impact so it's not really going to be a surprise.

In the history of the program under Urban Meyer he's always said that WR's get recruited to Ohio State because they're athletic and can catch, they don't see game time until they prove they can run routes and block.

So given that history, it's easy to assume he can catch, and we all know he's a freak athlete, but what keeps WR's off the field in Columbus is not being able to get the blocking assignments down, and not knowing all the necessary routes.

Comment 16 Aug 2016

While I will say he's still 1 year away...  Torrance Gibson should absolutely electrify the offense next year.  I think he'll get involved at some point this year, but I would be willing to bet the blocking piece of the equation is still eluding him.

He just needs a little more fine tuning, maybe polish some route running, but you can't deny the freak athleticism that was on display at the spring game.

Comment 10 Aug 2016

It's hard to figure out exactly what the missing piece has been for the TE's in the passing game.  Obviously the two guys that came before Baugh were elite level blockers as TE's, especially in the run game, but I struggle to figure out is it a lack of vision on the QBs to find the TE's in a mismatch?  Or are the TE's having trouble separating from defenders?

You have to love the fact that they were willing to get after it so hard in the blocking portion of the game.  that shows a nastiness and tenacity you have to have to play at that level, but for sure it would be good to see the TE's get some separation from defenders and make some plays.  I think the Buckeye offensive staff needs to make it a point to attack over the middle, and that's where the TE's make their money.

All signs indicate him being a huge and pleasant surprise to the Jets roster.  He just continues to evolve and improve, and I think there have been points at camp where he has ran with the first team receivers in the slot.  Pretty awesome.
