IMO, Elliott winning the Heisman is a function of which OSU quarterback is starter for most of the season. With Miller at the helm you can expect Braxton to get more runs, thus limiting EZE's carries. With J.T. at the helm you can expect a greater pass distribution, thus limiting EZE's carries. I think Elliott only wins the Heisman if Dolodale is the Q-back.
I am excited to see the spread in action on Saturday. If JT can read defenses quickly and find the open receiver it'll be lights out. We have real horses at RB in Rod Smith and EzE to balance the pass. On top of that, we have a great D-line and improved secondary. Gonna be a great season!
Perhaps ESPN is puffing the Bucks now so that they can talk of how overrated they were during the season. Don't trust ESECPN.
Sorry, Mr. Green. If that,s High St, Woodruff or 17th across the street from Ohio Field the houses are long gone.
Since Dantonio was DC on Tressel's NC team, it doesn't seem a slight to Meyer. In addition, Dantonio's strategy employs much of what he learned from Tressel during his years on the Buckeye staff.
RE: Lamplighter. I completely agree. Paul Brown built the team by filling it with OSU players. But, Modell continually bypassed available talent for small college players. For example, Cleveland could have taken Jack Tatum, but instead selected Erich Barnes. I'm still steamed about that one.
I stopped following Herbstreit on Twitter because of the way he engages those who disagree with him. I dislike the public blocking when he could do so privately and quietly. "goodbye."
I used to be a big Herbie fan, even after he moved from Columbus, but I think he tries too hard to appear neutral regarding OSU. I agree with the person that labeled Herbie a company man.
I'd also like to see Herbie partnered with someone other than Mussbarger. I don't think Herbie can grow in his profession while tied to Brent. Both Spielman and Blackledge have partners better suited to the quality of their game analysis.
So happy for Troy's success!
Can we get a Mary Sue and Gordon Gee show?
Sorry for the above typos. When typing mytext box is blank! Perhaps that is a function of iOS on this page.
I believe that hose who criticize OSU for thee Northwestern win probably didn't watch the game. They didn't see that the previously unbeaten NU squad was very well coached and playing way above their collective heads. They didn't know that NU was hanging their entire season on this one game, and that it had been hyped as "one of the greatest games in Northwestern history." The losses that NU has suffered following the game are not a mark of the team's weakness as much as they are a mark of unrealistic expectations and the resultant look at reality.
Ohio State, rather than playing poorly in that game (although certainly not their best outing) was like a champion prizefighter up against a strong contender. They took the contender's best shots until they discovered which punch would eventually be the ost effective. That punch was Carolos Hyde and.
Can we please stop appologizing for that victory?
Re: Beanie vs. Carlos.
Beanie was a great power back. His only flaw seemed to have been health. His foot problems kept him out of games, and often limited his effectiveness.
On the other hand, Carlos is a money back. He is consistent and aggresive. He runs well inside and outside. If I had to chosse between the two I'd take Carlos.
