I can't tell you how excited I am for Utah to drop TTUN by 20. Thursday, get here already. Monday, hurry your ass up as well.
Give me two long striders back there that find a seam and get going immediately. Someone that leans to turn (Ted Ginn Jr) and doesn't dance (Ray Small). Campbell and James Clark could be deadly back there. Both have long strides and once they get in the open field you're not catching them if they're running in a straight line.
Ony caveat with long striders is that they can get smacked because they are just looking to go and not to cut and all that. Just watch Ted Ginn, dude was the best kick returner I've ever seen at Ohio State. He wouldn't dance, if he had to go in the opposite direction, he would know ahead of time, plant his foot in the ground without losing any speed and lean into the cut and just fly.
I doubt it happens but I really hope the Buckeyes find a way to wear these on their helmets as well. I'd like to think after you VT fans gets rowdy to Enter Sandman that we can all have a moment of silence for the two reporters.
Yeah uhh nope, Herman can stay his ass the hell out of the B1G. Please keep that man as far away as possible until he comes back to become HC when Papa Urbs retires.
He's gonna win at Houston and win big the next few years. If realistically Meyer only has about 5-6 years left of coaching, I could see Herman being at a school like Cal for 2-3 years and having them competing with the California big dogs before then coming back to the good guys obviously.
You think they'll lose to BYU and Maryland but have a good chance against Utah and Michigan State....
It could happen if Hubbard is just that good that you can't keep him off the field but I honestly think you'll be hearing Tyquan Lewis' name a lot on Labor Day.
At times last year he blew up lineman because he is so strong and fast. That hurt him at times because he took himself out of plays. But one example of how good he can be is if you watch the game against Cincy, when Bosa killed Kiel.. watch the left side of the line, he pushed the left tackle back 15 yards and ended up pushing him over Kiel's dead body. I think he will be special; what I thought Jamal Marcus was gonna be. Speed rusher with major power.
Def wouldn't mind him being 1 of the 11. The more I think about it, a formation with Perry being one of the ends and Booker in his spot is, if I may quote the word best said on Scarlet and Gray days, tantalizing.
Kinda fear this signing might be an indication of not being able to reach terms with Tristan. That's just my opinion and I'm probably 150% wrong, just what I thought when I read this signing.
Good player, Mozgov type of guy but more agile around the rim. Really like his game.
I believe Decker said it started with Norwell. When Scarlet and Gray days premiered.
I agree but there's one problem, thats not Dante Booker.
If Jones can make improve making reads in the read option game, I truly think he beats out J.T.
People point out JT's accuracy but I never saw Jones be so inaccurate that it warrants a clear separation between the two. I actually believe the opposite. He threw absolute ropes in his 3 games. Aside from the pick in the Bama game from miscommunication, I believe he was pretty on the money. But 12's potential is sky high.
Add in the fact that Cardale could be a force in the QB running game with his size and I just don't see how he loses the QB battle. He was actually faster than I thought. It showed when he ran through Bama's defense en route to trucking Collins.
Leadership clearly goes to Barrett as the coaches have pointed out and as crazy as it is, I could see that being the reason J.T. starts game 1. Hostile environment at Lane stadium? You need your QB to be an absolute fearless leader in those games.
3-4 is a completely different defense in assignments. You know why the defense improved and played so damn well at the end of the year? Because it was simple. The defense is simple and allows the players to play fast.
If running both 4-3 and 3-4 were easy, all teams would do it but it's not worth it. And whose going to play the 2nd middle linebacker? Camren Williams? No thanks. Nick Conner? Not right now. The strength of the team is the defensive line, why take one of our good down lineman off the field for an average backer?
If they have something planned for Virginia Tech, I would say it's Ohio State's own version of a bear defense. 4-6 maybe. VT's offense doesn't have outstanding playmakers, especially out wide, play press and give them a taste of their own medicine. Let the D-Line get after the QB.
You'd think Ohio State didn't win the national championship with all the worries we have and all the bickering of who did what better.
Whichever QB starts, it will be the right one because Urban Meyer has 3 national titles and we all collectively have zero. Not counting Xbox.
I've just never seen anything from Schutt that allows me to put my confidence in him the way some others are. He was supposed to be some immovable force in the B.J Raji type mold but I've only seen him be injured and then out of shape. Maybe that all will change but I just don't see it with him.
Watch your profanity
How many balls will we play with this year? :)
Right when I saw this I instantly wanted to make one of those "Straight Outta ______" pictures with it saying 'Straight Outta Kentucky" but I figured that would be in bad taste. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't entertain the idea. Hopefully this dude can turn his career around like Dale and Hyde did.
Ohio State has the biggest fan base in the country. It's not a coincidence that these guys keep Ohio State and Buckeyes coming out of their mouth. It's traffic for their sites or written articles. Especially if they write something negative.
Does italics still mean sarcasm/are all these people unable to detect it?
Give me Grimes, Harris and DPJ and whoever else would just be icing. OSU has the quick smaller type playmakers, now we need the snag it over a DBs head type playmakers.
a more talented wisconsin type line.
So an Ohio State type line then.
I know "the plan" is for him to move back to QB after this year but honestly, once he himself and the coaching staff sees how great and natural he is at WR, I think that plan will be thrown out the window permanently. He needs to put on like 15 lbs and spend 3 years as a WR and he'll be going very high in the draft.
Well I think I'm well over the 2K sticker mark now. Once I get paid and put that $85 through to 11W, I still think I owe you that drink Hove. Now I just gotta make sure Birm is in there when I am.
I'd say if the Slobs can somehow take another step forward in progress and completely destroy people pass blocking and run blocking on way to historic offensive numbers and the Buckeyes win back to back titles. I'd make Warriner the top paid coordinator. 1.2 million is more than enough IMO.
100% agree Hove. I believe Warriner wants to be a HC one day but man if I was Ohio State and Urban Meyer I would fight for this man to be paid big. Especially if he comes out and has the same success as Herman/Meyer had running the ship. If he can keep the offense humming and develop these monster lineman, he needs to get paid like a top coordinator. Especially with what could be possibly the best group of offensive lineman in Ohio State history coming up in the next 2-3 years.
