Great point. You have to recruit to fill holes, holes created by players moving on, or holes created by teams exploiting your weaknesses. Those 4 losses aren't gained back by recruits from any one particular state.
I think when your recruiting presence exists on a national level, you don't really have to be too overly concerned over a dip in commitments from a particular state, with the exception of missing out on elite talent in-state.
Not getting players out of PA doesn't bother me as long as the national recruiting is on the level, and I think we can all agree Ohio State is recruiting at a legendary level right now.
You for sure can't blame Warinner or any other coordinator for wanting a head coaching gig. I wonder if looking at Ash and the difficulty he's having at Rutgers has any impact on their decision.
Purdue wouldn't be the worst job, but even still, as consistent as Ohio State is with winning, you'd think a bigger program would want a crack at the likes of our coordinators... Just my opinion, but I have prescription scarlet colored glasses.
JT goes for 230 yards passing and 2 TDs and runs for 65 and another
Weber gets 175 yards and 2 TDs
Samuel catches a TD and runs for about 75
Wilson catches a TD and runs for about 45
Give me a couple boots from that walk-on kicking stud...
41-17 Ohio State over Penn State.
Going into the week of the game, as long as the game is close and we win, Michigan probably would fall to 5/6 and if Clemson and Bama lose then I'd say sure, they'll have a chance. It really just depends who takes their spot in the top 4 I guess.
I agree with your take, but if we're talking just true first year players, my pick was bosa, Jordan a very very very very very close second. If Bosa had the opportunity to be on the field as much as Jordan is and wasn't backing up Lewis/Hubbard (or playing DT in the Rushmen package) he'd have better than 6 sacks right now.
How about most outstanding true freshman? I'd have to go Bosa. He has been everything he was hyped up to be and more. I'm stoked to see him develop.
We're a team that is usually the best in the Big Ten, but we're always hungry. This isn't a team that takes their status for granted. It's not given, it's something they feel like they have to continue to prove. I love that mentality.
We'll need fans... Alumni... A natural disaster... Maybe an act of god?
In the words of one "Snoop D-O- Double G" Ya Betta wreckanize.
It's an open invite to anyone who is a fan of the best team in College football... You may have heard of them, The Ohio State University Buckeyes, coached by one Urban Meyer?
Barrett may not get remembered this year as the season's most prolific passer, but the guy's guts, determination, and refusal to lose have to go down in history as some of the gutsiest and most inspiring performances ever.
He's so tebow-esque in that regard. Is he going to toss the rock all over the yard for 500 yards and 10 tds? No, but man with 4th down and you need to move the chains, I don't think there's anyone else in the FBS that's better and more reliable to find someway to get that first down.
The walk-off sack, to me, is the most exciting play in football. It shows the level of conditioning your DL has vs. it's opponent. The entire Wisconsin team looked like it wanted nothing to do with the Buckeyes, even with our offense shooting itself in the foot with penalties, they still couldn't muster up the testicular fortitude to get a stop.
Then on that last play, the Wisconsin offense just looked like it was beaten before it lined up, and our DL went on the attack. It was a beautiful thing.
Very cool that the '18 recruiting is ramping up but I am still salivating over those blue chip recruits in '17 still on the board. Let's reel Em in urban!
Try telling an 18 year old kid whose brother went to school here and started his freshman year and was an all American that it doesn't matter who is first on the depth chart. You think it wouldn't matter to nick bosa that he's not a starter? I disagree
Michael hill is getting absolutely owned
A QB draw on 3&11? Seriously? They're not even trying to get a first down with that.
Good lord please just throw the ball! Take one fucking shot and just try!
Meyer is coaching so scared right now. What in the fuck? You have the athletes, use them!
That is some butt hurt that runs deeper than the mighty Mississippi
But in each of those runs where he's not breaking it to the endzone or getting out of bounds that's just another shot he has to take. I hate to see him take unnecessary punishment.
The twitterverse story is how I ring in a game weekend. So ready for a night game! Go bucks!
Samuel is the guy who HAS to be involved. He has to get the ball more than 9 times in 4 quarters. Let's see them double that amount of touches this week and see how many points this offense can really score.
But the other side of the coin is if you are risking Barrett on a 6 yard run up the middle, but have Curtis Samuel who hasn't seen the ball enough, why not give it to him for that 6 yard run, or try and bust one to the outside?
