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.
Talent seems equal.
I take the kid who has best character.
1 mistake and your gone if its the wrong mistake. Take the kid who is not injury prone and has the better character.
Honestly I don't think you can make a bad choice from what I know.
Anybody that remembers Ohio HS Football from 70's understands where quick calls come from.
Most teams warmed up back then very loudly with a 60 to 70 players bellowing out cadences/claps/beating thigh pads during warm-up .
It was a intimidation factor. My how the culture has changed, I remember when bands could play anytime during the game. Fun times Fun times.
I love this kid.
i always root for the local ohio kids. I hope his heart and mind is Scarlet and Gray. I think this kid is gonna be a special talent for the Buckeyes and have been following his recruitment. Want him more than any other DB.
Hope he is successful where ever he goes and makes to the league healthy.
+1 for Andy Katzenmoyer.
Just east of Ohio in Pittsburgh I rode the "STEEL PHANTOM" one wicked coaster the changed and slowed down to injuries.
It was up there with Ceder Points Magnum but faster. These where the last two best rollercoaster I've rode. Haven't been to Kings Island since Hanna-Barbarra and the "SCREAMING DEMON".
Kennywood in Pittsburgh has 3 nice wooden coasters as well. The Racers , The Thunderbolt , and my favorite in last car "The Jack-Rabbit "
Kennywood isnt on Cedar Point or Kings Dominion's level but its a nice amusement park.
A few years back tsun pipeline school, Trotwood Madison,. HC went to Springfield hs.
Springfeilds HC went to Centerville and Centerville's HC went to Trotwood Madison .
I think thats mostly right.
Thom McDaniels from Warren Harding /Massilon / Canton McKinley / Glen Oak etc.. was known to steer kids to tsun. i.e. Mario Manningham
It also and still seems Ohio State must get lucky to get a 5 Star from the BIG 5 (Moeller, St.X, Elder, Iggy, ED's} fom NOTRE DAME. BUT...Under Urban Meyer we have done alot better there!!
Comments like these is why there has always been a huge OHIO STATE fan base in Ohio. Yes we recruit OOS aka- "out of state" recruits from fla to cali to Texas when needed but 75% of those have some kind of tie to Ohio or Ohio State Univ. i.e. Bosa / Hyde from fla. Bosa's uncle ties to school , Hyde originally from Cincinnati area.
It comes from Ohio HS Football pride , Hsfb conference pride , regional rivalries pride from all over our state .
These come together and form a singular pride... It's called OHIO STATE FOOTBALL .
It was here before "Urban" and "Woody" and cultivated by Tressel to destroy tsun after 2001.
Every time a kid from Fostoria to Warren Harding or Centerville to Dayton or Toledo to Ironton or New Philadelphia via Coldwater or Steubeville to Columbus and Cincinnati via Cleveland is raised on and bred from our "brand of ohio hsfb" commits... The legacy of Ohio's State fb grows. Ohio's history and influence on football as we know it takes books to document . It is the mecca of football in my opinion .
From the Rust Belt/Coal Fields to Corn Fields there is HSFB STATE PRIDE. From eastern ohio appalachen foot hills to the black swamp of northwest ohio or the Catholic vs Public School debates there is HSFB STATE PRIDE .These elements all come together on Saturday in fall to form our beloved OHIO STATE BUCKEYES !!!
That's why I pull for kids for example Amir Riep, it's just in my dna. Scholarship restrictions suck.
Teams it would hurt bad and help alot if only could recruit your home state.
OKLAHOMA, NEBRASKA , WVU, OREGON. CLEMSON.TSUN OR MSU, INDIANA, PURDUE. KENTUCKY ,LOUISVILLE , BAMA , AUBURN, WISKY ,MINNESOTA.
RUTGERS, GEORGIA, GT, CAL, STANFORD, TEXAS , SMU, FLORIDA , MIAMI , FSU, ILLINOIS .Northern Ill.,
LSU ,USC, UCLA, OHIO ST, PITT , PSU , MARYLAND , TENN. NORTHWESTERN, ohio mac schools.
Just of the top or my head.
As well as tsun/ND. They ever get a Zook recruiter and a Solid coach they might be a Wisky type program .
Indiana , Purdue, Illinois , Tsun, Ohio State all lose local talent to Notre Shame. Wouldn't bug me if they wasn't the Texas of the mid-west .
