I take it as maybe he means the WRs haven't been as dynamic as he would like since he arrived at Ohio State. He always says he wants his receivers to be able to take a short pass and make a big play out of it. Wants his players to make big plays in space.

I think the issue isn't with the length of Josh's suspension but with the length of Ray's. When compared, it looks bad. IMO they need to tweak these suspensions but until then... It's still the rules and the punishments are clearly stated. 

That being said, Josh agreed to a contract where in it, basically says don't smoke weed. Period. Does it suck? Yes. But it's all on Josh Gordon to not smoke and try not to even be around it considering his past suspensions.

So I was watching the Navy game against Army last year. I took a couple things from it and was waiting for the right article to post in.

I noticed that Navy rarely huddles and does the whole Ohio State tempo where the offensive line will be on the line ready to go, they might go or they might look to the sideline for a call. My question would be how is this going to effect Coach Johnson's idea of rotating players in. 

Another thing, Navy had few problems with Army's defensive line, where they beat Army soundly was the dive against 3 down lineman, the LBs would shadow one side, over pursue and end up giving huge plays up the middle to Reynolds and the Fullback. Sometimes were stopped but it was when the LBs guessed and got it right. I think the Buckeyes will be able to keep the 4 up front and get a push allowing Perry, Lee and most importantly Grant to make plays on their keys. Most of Navy's big plays were up the middle, meaning the front 4, especially the middle 2 and Curtis Grant need to be solid. Navy had trouble on the edges running the ball, Army didn't have the fastest players but they all would take their keys and stop the outside runs. Passing the ball Navy had some success against the coverage. Our DBs will need to be aggressive in the press and will likely be asked to jam the WR at the line 95% of the time. Some plays, just an extra split second allowing them to either read their teammates and notice run or pass. 

Defensively Navy was pretty good up front. The defensive line didn't really allow a lot up the middle. They did get torched the first part of the game on the outside. Rushing and passing wise. I noticed they also started to cheat up their safeties and that should be really good if the Buckeyes can get a couple PA passes over the top. I think Ohio State will be able to do everything offensively. Navy's defense plays hard but I think our offensive line will be more ready than people think. Same with JT and the playmakers.

I know a lot has been said about who starts next season if Braxton comes back. Unless JT has some miraculous 1st season that mirrors or tops Braxton's junior season, I don't understand how anyone could say it'd even be a competition. I honestly think Braxton could have won the Heisman this year with this somewhat inexperienced team, just think what he would have and could do next year. This year I truly think we would have seen distributor Braxton. You gotta remember, most of his runs last year, like 85% were designed QB runs. When he stood back on passing plays he was going through all his progressions, reads, check downs etc. it was Herman/Urban who got comfortable with running Braxton and Hyde. I imagine Braxton would've done damage this year and has the potential to do even more next year with an experienced offensive line, experienced WRs and an aggressive defense in year 2 of the new scheme. 

I hope JT does work this year and I'm confident he will, but that man up in those pictures with Dr. James Andrews is our QB and he deserves his Senior year for sure. Get better 5!

Same here. Was a DE and my favorite stunt was "Nurse" which was a Nose under End stunt. Our nose tackle was 6'4 and around 340 but with fast feet. The guard was always so confused and would basically throw himself into the tackle when he saw our NT diving to the 4 which would leave me a gap and free run into the backfield.
Comment 25 Aug 2014
I think the LB list would have more misses than any other position but then again we had some ammmmaaazing LBs in the past so I don't really know if it affected OSU that badly. Guys like Borland, Kuechly, etc. Even though I don't believe either one was really high on OSU to begin with. I'd like to see that list.
Comment 25 Aug 2014
I believe someone asked the same thing to Hilliard or Green and they said that Van text them saying he made one.

I understand that, you can still acquire a players Bird rights in his contract year. Love wouldn't have resigned with Minnesota after this year even if they did offer him the most money. Minnesota wasn't going to keep him past the deadline anyway and not get anything for him. Cleveland still could have offered him a 1+1 deal with the player option at max money and then offered a new max deal when the cap expands in 2016. Similiar to what Bron will do after his current 2 year deal is done.

I think TG will become a big recruiter after October 20th. Hopefully it will be for the good guys, that will definitely help with Richmond. Assuming Richmond plans on announcing later on in the year and not soon like UT "rumors" say.
Comment 23 Aug 2014
Rumors never stop at UT. Everyone is rumored to be committing to the Vols. Especially if you ask a guy with a mullet and #VFL in his Twitter bio.

Thanks, now I'll be up all night.

Seemed like his Dad was pushing HARD against Ohio State. Would suck to see him go elsewhere because of a parent. Felt the same way about McDowell and MSU in 14'.
Comment 23 Aug 2014
Still think Gilbert folded under pressure. Wolves got BIG pieces when they would've either got nothing or nowhere close to the amount of talent they just acquired. Love made it clear he wouldnt sign an extension with anyone but the Cavs. Wait until the trade deadline and offer a couple First round picks and Bennett and keep Wiggins. Spurs showed that while Veterans are important, young guys like Kawhi and Mills are also key. I think Wiggins could've been that spark plug off the bench both offensive and defensively for the Cavs

I think what we saw with Guiton last tear, will be similar to this year with JT just with more weapons. More quick passes and sprinkle in few QB runs. Read option plays with EzE and Smith, pitch option plays with Dontre and Jalin Marshall, long ball when defenders cheat up. All of this will come down to JT though. Reads and progressions will be highly important.
Comment 23 Aug 2014
I think Barett and this quick passing game could actually help Devin. Quick outs and screens help verticals WRs. Just look at the Cal game and Guiton's first TD throw. Fake screen streak, Devin over the top when the corner bites and the safety cheats. Alot more of those, combined with some double moves from out and ups. Devin should have more chances for big plays actually.
Comment 23 Aug 2014
His frame could support around 205-210 with no loss in speed, I don't think 230 though. That's alot of weight to put on.
