Don Unferverth was the starting QB when I was attending Ohio State University. I didn't realize his stats were that bad. Then again Woody preferred non passing QB's. I also did not know he was a Doctor. Impressive! 

But you probably should check your dates? 

Go Bucks!!!

My thoughts FWIW: 

On Johnny Dixons health issues:

but considering past knee issues limited him to seven catches over parts of three seasons, counting on him for a full season of legit production could be a fool's errand. 

I felt the same way about Marshon Lattimores hamstrings last season. I am hopeful that Dixon gets the same results. 

On Binjamin Victors chances :

Binjimen Victor reportedly showed flashes of big time talent throughout camp, he's still working on consistency and I frankly ended up hoping to see more on Saturday. 

Too many drops. He is going to have get better hands. He could have easily had 3 touchdowns. 

Go Bucks!!!

CHICAGO C.....??

You kinda of lost me? The gist of your comment was that JT Barrett by staying is going to cost us a natty. But then you said:

'll be happy to see JT holding up a National Championship trophy, moving on to the NFL as a first round pick

So a seasoned, record holding B1G, as well as an all time Ohio State University record holder and a first round draft choice, your opinion not mine, QB should yield to a less experienced under-class-men? SMH!

On Spencer's game changing block against Bama

"It's because (Spencer) finished that linebacker."

Let's make that linebackerS. He actually took out the middle linebacker as well. I actually thought he might have legitimately been the MVP in that game. In spite of Elliot's, Cardales, and Thomas great games. We remember the Block, the Pass, but let's not forget the perfectly placed on side kick recovery that Spence made.  

Go Bucks!!!

BIGNUT Said:

JT seemed to get offended when he was said to not have as strong an arm as Cardale

And I agree. JT just seems to throw too hard and I also had wondered if he was trying to prove that he can throw hard. The other thing I noted, the kid is built like a linebacker. I would like to see a side by side of his 2014 physique vs today. Just saying …

At any rate I think he needs a better passing game if he is going to demand respect from the defense and "spread" this offense. JT is a great young man and I hope he goes back to being "the Distributer".

Go Bucks!!!

I did not have a good impression of Chrisman punts warming up before the second half of the Clemson game. The Clemson punter and Cameron were booming their punts. I thought there was a noticeable lack of height as well as distance on Chrisman's punts. Small sample I know. 

The other thing that I noticed. Neurenberger did not kick a ball before the second half. I thought sure he would be kicking any field goals in the second half. But he spent the time feeding Cameron the ball to punt. I didn't realize he was red shirting.

Go Bucks!!!

IMHO I think the one ingredient that was sorely missing is now coaching the Texas Longhorns. I feel very confident in the guy we have now. I hope Kevin Wilson has the full reins of the offense. I mean everything, from scheme, to play calling, and who plays and who doesn't play. Anything less would be foolish and disrespectful to Kevin Wilson. IMHO.

Go Bucks!!!

You don't have to explain north south to this kid. He seems to know where the seams are. 

Baseball? That probably explains why he is not running track. Although the track coach might talk him into running a relay leg in big meets. This kid has elite speed. He is a homerun threat from any where on the field. I wonder what he runs the 40 in?

I haven't seen a video with this kind of speed since the Samuels kid out of New York.

Go Bucks!!!

Niblick: I agree.

I was not as shocked as in 2013 when nothing was done regarding pass defense. I thought "Surely Meyer can't let this continue. I figured he would step in even if he had to coach that unit himself." Well it never happened!  But this year was different. This was the offense that was broken. Not just any offense, but MEYER's spread offense that looked anything like a spread. 

Well i don't think you can get any better than Coach Wilson. Hang onto your hat. This should be one hell of a show.

Go Bucks!!!

When you think both safeties from 2015 are in the NFL and Malik was better than both of them, IMHO. I for one have never witnessed an Ohio State Buckeye safety with that kind of range. And when you factor in his hands, did he ever drop one, hiis speed, and his open field running, I would have liked to see him at receiver. He had the best season of any Buckeye in 2016 and will be the highest Buckeye in the 2017 draft. What a talent!

Go Bucks!!!
