So what if OSU's offense doesn't turn it over 4 times? And yeah Boyd threw about 15 screen passes to Watkins and Co so it's not hard to complete 77% of your passes when they are just giving it to you, Chad Morris saw that and took advantage. And all the if's are just stupid. If they had done this, if they had done that. You can say alot of if's. If Tajh Boyd would have committed to Ohio State and not Clemson they might have won the Orange Bowl. If Sammy Watkins turned pro last year they would have won the Orange Bowl... Fact is, if you watch the game, OSU's offense was alright, you talk about the defense stats against Clemson, look at the offensive stats. If they don't turn it over 4 times and reach their season average for rushing yards then they might win the game..
I watched the D Line shut down two of the nations most elite rushers. Melvin Gordon and James White. Give me all the numbers you'd like, I know the defensive line will step up to any challenge that might not have been faced in 2013. All this quality of the opponent talk and whatnot just rubs me the wrong way. Any team can get beat on any given day by any opponent, that was proved in 2013. If you watched the team this year and didn't realize they were a talented and elite bunch, then you're just a numbers cruncher and didn't even watch a game. Numbers show alot, just not everything, like heart, what a player was doing or wasn't doing in the secondary to contribute to no sack by the defensive line, vice versa. You could have the nations #1 pass defense....but usually that means that teams are just running all over you and don't need to pass (ala TTUN 2011-2012). Appreciate the post though.
Mike Thomas and Jeff Greene have the size and talent, but can they take that next big step and do what's asked of them: block. Imagine being in the redzone, having Dontre and EzE in the backfield, Jalin Marshall in the slot, Jeff Greene on one side, Mike Thomas on the other. Pick your poison.
A night game in Columbus against TTUN would be ABC ratings gold. That'd possibly be the absolute loudest game ever in The Shoe. I like a Noon kickoff but man I can't lie, a night game against them this year? Take my entire bank account and just give me a seat in the stadium, I don't even care.
Huh? Marino is definitely mentioned with all those guys, he's one of the greatest to ever play. Just never got that ring.
I watched Jordy Nelson Jr make Roby look like he was a high school player on the JV squad going up against Jerry Rice. Also the Cal WR's difficult and crisp routes made Roby confused. I think B is a great DB. But matching him up against the NFL's top tier, hell their third tier is gonna be tough at first. He will catch on, but he has to get in the film room and do the work. You can be the best DB physically but if you're not strong mentally, OC's with great QB's like Rodgers, Brady, Peyton, will tear you apart.
Roby has a long way to go before he can match up with the likes of Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, AJ Green, Dez Bryant, etc. "The best of the best." I'll always root for a Buckeye but he better always put that ego aside and focus on bettering himself everyday. There's a difference in being cocky and being confident.
Recently, there hasn't been a program more successful than Bama. But I get what you're saying. We should be better and a lot more clean.
If having Holland means getting the Trinity "trinity" of Holland, Edwards and Toliver II. I guess I'd rather have him as well.
Hahahahaha I'm sorry but no... and please excuse my cockiness, but if there is one team in the north that can become the "next Bama", you're already cheering for them buddy.
"When I get there" "When I go there...if I go there." Sounds like he's had Columbus on his mind for a while.
Looking like we should start to expect a move to the new age of jerseys with more "alternates" to come. I love our traditional look but I don't hate the white jerseys they wore against TTUN. Kinda want to see them wear it with the grey pants, white socks, etc. Also, I like the chrome helmets but I want to see them come out with another helmet maybe with the same idea but just regular grey or flat/matte colors. I'm not big on chrome helmets every game, or these jerseys for that matter but if the players like them and it attracts recruits among other things, so be it.
Just using his term so that he could easily familiarize what I was trying to say.
If I'm not mistaken, he's good friends with Tim Settle. If the coaches could get them both on campus and show them a great time, two stud DT's could be heading to Columbus in the 2015 class.
The main reason I don't like these jerseys is because you used the term swagged out to describe them. I would love for them to swag the hell out of Columbus and never come back.
You wanna see swagged out? Look at our Buckeyes road uniforms.
It took me an hour and 15 minutes to scroll down this page on my iPhone just to say...
...these are terrible.

Not a huge Kenny G fan eh?
I was really surprised no one was excited as I was the Bennett was coming back. Yes Roby and Shazier were the bigger names but no one seemed to talked about this. I know we have depth on the DL but I feel like getting Mike to come back was big
Basketball poll brother, not football lol.
I think Dodson takes over that RT spot. Him and Baldwin will fight for it. Also don't see Armani starting this year. Apple/Conley/Webb will make a push for that other DB spot. Money is on Apple (or a new starter) playing boundary and Doran playing field. Burrows will play star, him and Worley could thrive in that position for their physicality and Powell will stay at Safety. Everything else looks really good brother. Great post.
I like the Alternates I just hope we don't go with them permanently. I love our white away uniforms and IMO think they are the best away jerseys in the nation for the sharp, traditional and clean look.
If they did bring back one jersey to don in a game this year, I was a big fan of these, I may be the only one, but I liked the classic look.
And last (I promise I'll stop posting pictures) I liked this jersey my buddy in Georgia sent me. He is a Bulldogs fan and has done some concept jerseys for them. He sent me over this one and told me he liked the look and if Ohio State ever did a black jersey, they should do something along these lines. (I apologize that it is Georgia)
Haha that's my secondary Twitter that I follow all you 11Warriors and all the analysts and "experts" on. I didn't even know he retweeted it. Nice!
