You think this is bad take a gander into Ohio High School Football.
Meyer loses most recruitig with Clemson and is 0-2 in football.
You have the Woody Hayes thing, and 2 recent losses. Clemson is about the worst behind tsun that a fan feels about right now. Mitch Hyatt, Urban chased Deshawn Watson way to long. I don't buy Dabo's "Aw Shucks" Persona.
So some fans are bent about this, Ohio doesn't produce the Top pass blocking tackles or DT like the south and it looks like we are losing a ohio player not a southern player. One who seems to not like ohio period which is a insult the all of us.
Yeah well what the heck happens when Urban retires?
It's all good now, but it took Tressel 10 yrs of demoralizing tsun to rebuild that wall around ohio.
If one didn't know how Urban recruits you would think he knocked down ohio's wall on purpose.
Remember these conversations about Ohio talent and national recruiting being better when Pantoni and when Urban is gone.
Miss Katzenmoyer making them hits. Football seemed so much more physical in the 90s
And Nickel CB Denzel Ward is the fastest Buckeye on the team per Ohio St.FB
Would love to have seen Hooker's 40.
Kids was raised right.
Understands the team concept.
Would want him in my fox hole for sure. Pure Team mate
Noah is a bad man. Love to land that kid!!
The DE looks straight up like a LJ Sr. DE. Stud!!
MSU loves Meyers recruiting too.
Can't wait to see LBers under a new coach!!
I wish I could up vote this 50 times. Throw out the back to back MSU / Tsun 2 weeks also!!
All that matters is who Urban likes more.
If I'm Burrow I transferred the minute I heard JT say he was coming back. We have a dime holding up dollars imo.
2016 should have been JT's last year. Burrow turned down MSU(they was just about to offer and Urban found out) and Haskins decommitted from Maryland. Unfair to both, they both should have had their time at qb here. JT is a good qb vs average teams and misses crucial throws to back a defense off.
If Wilson and Tufule don't work out and come to the Buckeyes I think Derrius Mullins 6'3 325 from Columbus DeSalles, Ohio would be a nice future DT. He is currently comited to Indiana and they have been pretty good at judging DT's lately and I've always like this kid. He cloggs up them OL and keeps them of the backers.
Ellison I would be fine with or I would have been fine with Sibley, oh well thats what happens when you have a shot at the best RB in the country. FSU and Clemson need to stop recruiting our players. lol haha.
Thayer Munford another 3 Star to 4 star ohio kid. I would love. These kids are the "Salt of the Earth" when it comes to Ohio State in my opinion.
Sorry, learn from towns in your own state. Better drop this thing and let it go. I don't want this. you don't want this kind of attention that brings in NYT Reporters etc....
Beck was brought to appease Warriner. In 2014
And have Clemson cost us 2 All Star Coaches?
LOCKED AND LOADED !!!
I think he would rather take the sack than throw a incomplete pass.
Or Coaching is bad. Also I don't believe Warinner is spending much time with TE's. Baugh's backup came in a messed up on his 1st play. We have 1 TE. This offense HAS to be able to run the ball to work right. And our OLine got their @$$'s whipped as Coach Vrabel like to put things.
To many Grandpappys in the stands.
It's minimizing the loss time.
The problem is this team offense has been sputtering. Samuel long run messed up the avg. per run for OSU last night. It was probably more like 2.5 yds a carry avg.
This is a counter-punching team. We are always adapting to what other coaches scheme.
We got ZERO CALLS FROM THE REFS ALL NIGHT: I saw a targeting on Bowman on Weber in the 1st half which espn never showed any replay of, pass interference on us, but not on themetc..
THE "B1G" schedules Ohio St "back to back" road games at the TWO HARDEST places to go in and get a win out of..at night, after BOTH TEAMS HAD A BYE WEEK TO HEAL AND PREPARE!!! Thanks B1G!!
;WR's coaching OR bad evaluation during recruiting- OHIO ST. receivers have had a major problem beating DB's deep and when they do JT. Barrett under throws them or over throws them. Ohio St. rarely has time to throw the ball deep due vto our predictable offensive style, and un-evovling offense that seems to be regressing since after Oklahoma game.
This offense is missing a pounding RB, Weber looks like a pinball between the tackles and is little threat to break a tackle leaving teams to key on JT Barrett Q-Runs.
Lack off a QB containing pass rush while in man coverage. Opposing QB's just wait for the DE's to rush up the feild and then step up in the pocket and run for 1st down or throw a dump off to a waiting RB/TE.
Crossing Routes. Always good for a 1st down against our defense.
JT. Barrett holding the ball to long. Give your receiver a chance at a 50% ball or throw it away instead of taking sacks.
Learn how to block or scheme for a zone blitzing defense, and our "ULTRA KNEE BUCKLING NEMESIS" The DELAYED LBer OR SAF BLITZ". Does Ohio St know what a hot Route is????
These are problems this year and some the last 3 yrs. Time for a fresh offensive look or a smarter play calling offensive Coordinator.
Penn St seemed to have better traction with their shoes all night. Ohio St olb's and DE's CANNOT keep losing contain on big plays and QB scrambles!!!!
Lastly , Ohio St.'s SLUGGISH GAME STARTS. Be nice to just come out pissed off just ounce and dominate from start to finish without it being from a prior loss.
Complacency has been growing since we beat the Sooners. It seems Tressel ball has returned to Ohio St.
We have been in the top 10 in recruiting approx the last 4 years
Need to recruit better WR's and then coach them instead of being their buddies.
Ash don't have the talent yet to pull of a upset. He know some things other coaches don't about Urban's offense. I just hope he doesn't give other more talented teams a blue print on how to attack Urban's offense and defense.
