Same goes to Kraemer and Eichenberg. Wonder about those two picking ND over Ohio State sometimes.
Smithson your Maize is showing.
I'm sorry, your Amarillo is showing
You have to think like Negan though and not as a viewer. WE know Daryl or Glenn would be Rick's right hand man but Negan wouldn't be certain. I would guess Abraham because he seems like the typical bodyguard/second in command. Big guy seemingly from the military. Not afraid to die, etc.
With Negan in play? HBO would be perfect now.
Couple things I think are gonna happen.
1) Glenn gets it. It's been foreshadowed ever since Glenn almost gets his head taken off by the low swinging crane a few seasons back, more recently with him seeing the pictures inside the Saviors complex. They've said in the past they weren't going to go by the comics on this one but I can't see them pissing off the loyal comic readers by letting Glenn still live after this.
2) Abraham also dies but because while Negan is bashing Glenn with Lucille, he tries to stop it because he knows Glenn has a baby on the way with Maggie. Unfortunately Negan makes an example out of him and shoots him numerous times with the pistol he took from Carl in the season 6 finale. In the comics Abraham is the one who is supposed to take the arrow through the eye so his story is kind of over, especially since he started getting a little softer for the viewers the last couple episodes of season 6.
3) Rick loses his hand after he tells Negan he will eventually kill him, "not today, not tomorrow".
4) Daryl Dixon is safe and will continue to be at least for now. Since he is injured, Negan doesn't want to look weak by killing an already injured man.
5) Many will piss their pants.
Now since I said all this Carl is gonna get shot and killed and Maggie will get the bat cause you know, writers.
And if you don't like cigars you smoke victory cigarettes instead I guess? (Far right)
Can Akers along with Trey Smith will be at the game, let's hope Bama embarrasses them.
Oh I agree completely, I would rather have Samuel, Weber, Wilson or McCall take a handoff up the middle but I think it's just a numbers game when it comes to why the QB run is so effective and if it's working then you keep doing it. When you can get a hat on a hat and open up a potential one on one with Barrett and a Safety that means you're gaining the right amount of yards getting to that next level.
That being said, I would love to see more fake jet sweep-inside zone and vice versa. Especially against Wisconsin where you don't want their LBs to think they can just sit there and not have to defend out wide. I don't think they've played a team that can stretch the field with a run game quite like the Buckeyes. They've been lauded for "stopping Fournette" who still ran for over 100 without an even decent QB and no threat to run outside. Think that bodes well for the Buckeyes.
Also, I'll end it with how I do every week.
Let's win by 100 and have no injuries. Go Bucks!
But the other side of the coin is if you are risking Barrett on a 6 yard run up the middle, but have Curtis Samuel who hasn't seen the ball enough, why not give it to him for that 6 yard run, or try and bust one to the outside?
Well for the most part if it's a designed QB run? That creates an extra blocker which 90% of the time would be Samuel or sometimes Weber. The times I think he has no lead blocker are pass plays where he takes off and runs. I can't remember too many times where Barrett is asked to run by design without a lead blocker.
We have to think about all this with the possibility of this game being played in a downpour. If it were perfect weather then I'd have no trouble calling a final of like 42-7 but I can honestly see it being 17-10 or something close because stupid weather and stupid turnovers. Let's hope the storm kinda puts a damper on the loudness in Camp Randall.
If the score is 45-10 I will record myself eating a shoe and I'll lick my fingers clean afterwards mostly because I will be drunk and way too excited.
Can I put some type of sauce on the shoe? Want to get that question out of the way early.
How dare you put your college football loyalty to the side to better yourself as a person and attend a college better suited for you than The Ohio State University.
Shame shame, I know your name.
Won't score over 50?
1) I don't think we're gonna get any good comparisons this year between teams both OSU and UM have played. Rutgers could have gotten beaten by 100 if Urban did what Harbaugh was doing. The last quarter and a half of the game was the same play over and over aside from getting Ben Vic a catch. I thought Wisconsin was gonna be a good comparison but they played at Michigan, at noon, in great weather. This Saturday will be at Wisconsin, at night, with terrible weather. If Ohio State can find a way to dominate in that setting and score more than 14 dang points, I'll be really happy.
2) I forgot my second thing.
QB has a bad day, one of his worst performances, and the team still wins by 21....
So your first thought is to come complain? My God I hate you type of fans. Might as well join the Big Nut and annoying ass Cowboy looking for cameras to get TV time instead of actually watching the game.
I always wonder what would've been with some kids had they chose to come to Columbus instead of other schools, especially ones near home.
Sam Bruce is just the latest example, would he have been the same person or would this staff and roster made him grow up quickly, with no home distractions surrounding him?
The Buckeyes need to come out and establish the passing game early. I don't think they are gonna run the way they've been running all year against Wisconsin's front. The WRs and Barrett need to be on the same page with hand signals/audibles out to them. I've been in Camp Randall and it will be loud. Can't recognize a one on one opportunity to go deep and all of a sudden your WR still runs his original 7 yard out.
When I was scrolling through the forums I first read the thread title as Jon Gruden as Josh Gordon.
I don't believe I've seen a recruit in the past few recruiting classes that loved Ohio State as much as Danny. Maybe Braxton but Danny was a die hard Buckeye. Recruiting sucks sometimes.
This times a billion
You can definitely tell that might've been one of the hardest things he's ever had to do. I'll be watching him in the future, just please don't go to awful Kentucky out of all places.
Go over to NDNation and look at all the Urban Meyer threads. "A devout Catholic would no doubt at least listen to Notre Dame's offer. He's always said his dream school is Notre Dame and I believe he would entertain the idea before completing turning them down. What does Ohio State have that Notre Dame doesn't?"
Uhhh well first off they're relevant?
As long as the talks are happening now and not a week before signing day, I can live with it. Tough business but I think with how the team is looking early in the season, the staff might know how to build a team a lot better than any of us ever will. If that future doesn't involve a player in the class then that does indeed suck but do you want to take away a guy like Stephen Collier's scholarship and give it to Clark? I wouldn't. Like I said earlier, tough business but that's the way it goes around 99% of the good schools in CFB. Never will change.
