Indeed a great week for the B1G TEN!!!  

Sadly will be last season for Hoke... was maybe even more fun than A-Rod(Duh!).... ~Let's hope scUM hires someone who can bring them back to respectability... their 10+ yrs slide has been at the expense of the conference.  I want their best game every time... you can't get that with average coaching.

Nice to see every other team winning and upsets as well.

With the right personnel (Corners who can bump and run AND COVER), and LBs who can cover as well, it should be more than just a prevent.  Get the right people in place... and with more time, or understanding of the new scheme, Defense will only get better.  The scheme is new to all players even verterans.

As well there is the "age of technology" we are in today... I am just thankful that not everyone had mobiles back when I was going to college... I might not be employable today if someone had a record of the insane things we did in school even 20 yrs later...   The culture we are in today is hard to be human... and that means make mistakes as well as have some fun along the way.  People can see everything even things you don't want people to see somehow today are being seen.

it is indeed a change in philosophy from last year... Meyer has commented on getting frosh more playing time, vs last year holding some players back...one can see the results speak for themselves...

This move will improve the 2 deep as there maybe a Jr. or Senior in reserve.  This makes more sense in the earlier non-B1G games, and is a definite shift  from Tressel.   Giving players a chance in game situtations can show who is ready, and is already showing some listed in the article who are stepping up and will stay on the field as a result.

On field results will help coaches make that tough decision.

I love the direction of best man in... how it should be.

OL needs are being met regardless of the stars that sites place on some players... the key is can they play, are they athletic enough, and are they coachable... 6 ft 9" with the athletisism to play TE... coaches wouldn't offer a kid if they didn't think they could coach them up. 

I am confident that OL needs are being addressed, we are just dealing with Legacy issues left by the previous OL coach... the Walrus left the cupboard bare with DL recuits filling in on the two deep and incoming Freshmen pushing to get it... it is clear someone wasn't doing their Job 4-5 yrs ago.

Indeed in a small sample size looking very good... strangely even with 2 starting NFL players at Key positions on Defense we were somehow able to play terrible defense last year... more and more pointing to the coaches and the system that might have cost tOSU a run at the National Championship last year. 

Comment 15 Sep 2014

10 yrs of ESpin talking about SEC speed is indeed having an impact on recuiting.... players are choosing to go South even from FB havens like OHIO losing some top recuits to Alabama each year... where before we would lose those recruits to someone like TSUN or others in the Big Ten( at least they would stay in the Big 10, and am sure that is the case for most States like PA, and Mich).... if you were a fast player would you want to play in the "slow" Big Ten...

Could use another tall wide receiver in this class....AJ Alexander will most likely move to TE or H-Back.  He is already big enough to play TE... with OSU weight program he will more than likely add 30 lbs getting him into 250 lb range... can't imagine him staying at WR.

Wow this says a lot about their program, sure some tough times but at least the students sections should be full...  at the very least they could scalp the tickets for extra dough (maybe there isn't even a premium on Scalped tickets either).  Either way it says a lot!

Comment 27 Aug 2014

Bennett at ESpin is supposedly a B1G writter... its amazing that even the guy on the beat for the Big Ten is actually spending time beating up the Big Ten... I am not looking for a homer, but jeez reading that article as well as DJ points out the obvious about those comments really gets me fired up for game day... Tick Tock...

And of course dogs rule... aren't called man's best friend for nothing... cat lovers.... MAN UP!
