Agreed. Additionally, having that kind of depth is good. Really, quality depth is what sets the top teams apart from the rest, or at least it is a significant factor in the foundation of a championship contender. .
...and everyone in-between.
Coach Johnson may have been the biggest "flip" of all.
UV for you Rkylet83.
Whoever did the DV...just because you disagree? Seriously? If You don't think of Tress as a special coach then reply with your opinion or reason, but a DV? Why???
Bosa will go in the draft before Jones in almost any scenario, IMHO.
I agree. No way a competitor sacrifices a loss now for a win later. If Harbaugh has some special plays for OSU and he really needs to use one to make the difference between a win and a loss at some point in the season, he will go for the win. Understood the special nature of The Game, but I agree SilverState, he won't go that far.
They wouldn't be Our Rival if there wasn't a possibility. You always, ALWAYS, need to bring the "A" Game for your rival. The records do not matter. On that day, the only thing that matters is The Game. That is what makes it The Game.
If the question had been not "best" but "most entertaining" then I would have lobbied for Harbaugh to be one of the choices...
I hope your source is wrong.
VT will not be preparing for speen rushers, I can guarantee you that.
I agree. Until they are on the field it is possible that more games could be added to the suspensions.
I think that players that are under suspension are not allowed to travel with the team nor be present on the sidelines.
VT will be ready. They are well coached and they have been hearing for months now about how OSU is going to blow them out. Their bulletin board is covered and they are smoldering inside. They will give Ohio State everything they have, and the home crowd will be stoked. Win by a point and I will be happy. This is now a trap game IMHO.
Va Tech will not be an easy opponent. Having a key player like Bosa missing will not help at all. This is not good.
Dontre Wilson and Jalin Marshall will both get reps. Braxton in the open field is an electric situation; better than Wilson or even Marshall has shown. A good problem to have.
I voted yes, he could. Would he have won? No way to know. In any case, even without Smith in the mix, Ohio State is the real winner with the quality depth at QB along with the quantity of experiences between them as well.
We have guys with the possibility of leaving early for the NBA, I would agree. Chances are not high that anyone does, though, IMHO.
Spot on PotatoDigger. These things run in cycles most of the time. It is really hard to repeat a championship, period. A lot of things can happen. Humility and focus are good for players, coaches, AND fans.
Thanks for the reminder on Jayson Gwinn; my memory wasn't clear. IIRC he did play well against PSU. Sad loss of a young life.
Who is a realistic possibility to leave early for the NBA in the next two years? (Roster Here)
UV for you sir. I agree with the DV pattern of some 11W members being difficult to fathom. IMHO anyone who disagrees should respectfully say so instead of just tossing DVs up there; dialogue is more interesting and informative. Dialogue is also rapidly becoming a lost art, unfortunately.
That definitely was a slip down by Cooper.
Either that or Owenu has discovered the Joey Bosa Ninja Takedown move, and if that is the case why didn't he use it on those other two reps???
I was at that game and at Skull Session. St. John was full, I mean SRO, for The Skully that day, probably because the weather was so bad.
It seems like that was the game that Jayson Gwinn was killed in an automobile accident later that day on Olentangy River Road. Memory isn't totally clear on the details. A tragedy for sure. He did play a great game that day against PSU if I recall correctly.
I will have to catch that some time. Not surprised, though.
FWIW, I didn't DV you.
The fans had nothing to do with the PSU Scandal but they shouldn't rationalize it or defend it, nor should they defend the coaches and staff who were made aware, and I am just saying that they put themselves in the position of enablers when they do that (just like certain coaches and staff were actual enablers of the abuse). I would respect PSU fans who admit the facts as facts and move on, but the ones who want to distort the facts I just can't respect. I will respectfully agree to disagree with you on this one.
