It's true, Coach Marotti is horrible at developing players. He has no clue how to get them physically ready to play college football, much less the next level. Just look at the drafts from when he was at Florida and since he's been at OSU. Basically zero players drafted.
Who is the best in the business?
I agree. Not only is the def on the field more often, it is having to defend a much larger area. The "pro style pound you, then put one over the top" offense is defended north-south. Much easier to have players in position pre-snap to defend. The spread offense of today make you cover east west, which creates issues when you're trying to fill gaps in the run game. You can't load the box with 7-8 guys, leave your CB's on an island with a safety over the top to stop it. This why our offense is so successful. We can gain yards from any position on the field. Spread 'em out and identify the mismatch.
Conley in the MSU game had less to do with how "tough" he is and more the game speed. It is extremely difficult to get a player ready for the jump in game speed between high school and major d-1 football without getting them actual game time. That's why we put in the youngsters when games get out of hand. I happen to think Bell has done a good job of tackling he saved a few last week and this week from going to the house. The issue in the running game is two fold. 1) the LB's are having issues reading the correct lanes to fill and getting burnt by any misdirection. 2) the big plays are coming on third down primarily because the d-line is over persuing and not containing. We aren't getting burnt by big pass. We are getting burnt by broken down plays. They did fix the contain issue late in the game and it caused several 3 and outs. I could be wrong but I don't see an issue with size, strength, speed or toughness. I see several very young players making a bad read or two and bad things happening because of it.
BECKMAN! I knew he would be up to something.

Agreed! Marty Brennamen was getting really annoying last night with the "If it weren't for this call or that penalty, they'd be right there" crap. Yes, if they were allowed to cheat/have an unfair advantage you would have a better chance at winning.
Both STA backs look really impressive.
That is Jashon Cornell.
Maybe she's into bigger guys. If so, I'm right in her wheelhouse. I wonder if she's on Tinder. I'll look into guys and let you know how it goes.
I'm with you DJ. I'm going to be just as disappointed at the end of the season if we aren't 15-0. 14-1 or 9-3 or 2-13. It doesn't matter what logic you try and sell me, THE Ohio State University are the rightful champions. At least in my head. Maybe I'm wrong.
I think it's promising that the starting center for Alabama hasn't run away with the job. According the the two deep article, he isn't going to be the starter. I think that speaks to the strength of the unit.
I have a very different reaction to this gif this time.
JT Barrett. Damn it. I know I know , he's a RS Freshman. Close enough.

Not a single photobomb from Urbz? I feel a little disappointed.
