All this love for Rod Smith? All I can say is that I don't see him hit the hole very hard. Reminds me of Saine. Me thinks his ship has sailed. I hope am wrong. I like the kid personally.
I know we beat this topic to death, but 2 cents anyhow. Live got him, pylon moved maybe not. Replay inconclusive, TD, great play running back.
Then I see pylon not in field of play (great post to ???) so I ask how the replay booth didn't catch it. Possibly not their call. at any rate it is the officials job to catch that and not the coaching staff. At any rate you are not going to get all the calls. Sure made it more interesting.
I for one was glad to see all the young and new faces, both on defense and offense. I am glad to see Urban back up his talk with action. I will never understand last years reluctance to play the kids when the guys in front of them were not getting it done. I still think it went back to coaches not trusting the players. They didn't trust the backups because they had no experience, DUH!, and they didn't trust the starters to play in your jock defense. IMHO.
Well Urban told his assistants, "you better coach them up, because they are playing this year."
One thing that young Mr Barrett an Braxton Miller have in common? Their first collegiate touchdown pass was to the same guy. Has the torched been passed?
Coach Fickell's adage "addition by subtraction" thingy applies to the loss of Braxton to this offense. There will be no BM to bail us out this year. Everyone has to step up not just TJ. I think this year you are going to have 4 receivers coming out of their breaks expecting to see the ball right there for the plucking.
This is going to be the most exciting year yet under UFM.
GO BUCKS, bring on the 2014 edition of The Ohio State University B1G champions!!!
Was it a blindside tackle? If so, I know a great bail bondsmen...
Had to comment. I remember that Greg was OSU QB and that was about all until he mentioned John Cooper. I also did not know much about John Cooper. Greg remembers their first win against Syracuse. I don't remember much about their 1st loss except that I did form my 1st opinion about John Cooper as a football leader of young men. He was quoted as saying his QB was to slow to run the option. .??? I had to read it over! Is he blaming his QB? Are you kidding me. He is a college kid. If he is too slow then why are you running the option? Never ever blame the kids. Beat them up in practice but have their backs on Saturday.
Needless to say I was in for a rough 13 years. After Gordon Gee (love him now) extended his contract I was pretty much done. Didn't (couldn't) watch _ichigan game for the last 8 years. Not till Jim Tressels 1st year did I watch THE game again.
PS John Cooper? I love what he is doing for Ohio State now.
"There's always something to prove and there's always someone doubting you." I wish I understood that at his age.
How are you privy to Notre Dames tax records? 1) they are private institution and do not have public records and 2) as a Religious organization what taxes are the paying?
I hate to be the fly in the ointment but who is going to be getting the ball to all these playmakers. Everybody seems to be ignoring the big elephant in the room. Where is Braxton Miller? Starting week 3 and I don't hear anything about him. Is he even practicing?
like I said who is going to be getting the ball to all these playmakers?
BUCKEYERADAR said in regards to secondary: "I think he'll (Ash) be moving fresh players in and out because of all the talent he has available".
Coach Speak: "We need competition at every position. It brings out the best in everybody." Really, then why does it stop when the season starts? If they were not going to play two deep in the secondary last year when will they. I'm sorry, but with that cupcake schedule last year, IMHO, every defensive 2 and some 3's should have had meaningful reps.
I am still waiting to hear the real story on Mike Mitchell. He could not get on the field with the linebackers he watched playing in front of him???
I hope you can make this topic a regular feature. All these young men were good enough to be recruited by Ohio State and it usually works out for about 1 out of 4 of them.
Also, how highly ex Buckeyes feel about Jim Tressel.
Any word on Mike Mitchell's where abouts?
Buffalo? Exactly the kind of remark OSU recruits hear about C-Bus from our down south schools when recruiting our recruits.
I was thinking sports and the first two men I thought of were Jesse Owens and Jack Nicklaus, and in that order.. Ji
I agree. It's a no brainer. Anybody that says otherwise is not being real.
Great article. Sometimes we wish so hard (Evan Turner playing his senior year) that it becomes true in our mind. Me thinks...
Luckynutz, I agree with you on Bennett. He plays his butt off and he plays hurt. I hope if the kids that read these blogs understand that all school fan bases have knuckleheads that don't have a clue.
GO BUCKS!!! Bring on NSD!!
the defensive coaches kept putting Armani Reeves in the game. The one time Cam Burrows played I thought he was all over his guy, and I might add without mugging the receiver. Then I find out he played because Reeves was hurt. Sometimes the art of coaching is putting the right players on the field. If this was high school ball I would suspect his dad was a booster.
IMO Roby and Shazier were the only sure tacklers in the back seven. Which surprises me for Ohio State.
We took two of my youngest grandsons to the San Diego State game, their first. They live east of Raleigh NC. Loved the part about your son watching the video. My grandson was asking about the campus buildings he could see from the Shoe. I told him I would take him on a tour of the campus after the game. Great experience.
AaBuckeye, I thought when we went up 35-21 we just needed one stop. We go up 42-21 and Michigan has to abandon play action and up the tempo. Unfortunately our D was not up to the task. Not sure why. But IMO it has to be fixed and fast.
GO BUCKS!!! Bring on the Spartans!!
I just wish he would lighten up a bit. Smile once in a while. He looks angry all the time.
Man I feel their pain. I finally had to stop telling my grandsons about Otto Graham, Marion Mötley, Lou Groza, Jim (greatest running back ever)... And how Pittsburg was a joke game on the schedule.
Go young Bucks. Take care of business Saturday and accomplish something no other Buckeye group has ever done. Consecutive undefeated seasons.
GO BUCKS!!! Bring on TTUN!!
Ya! Kind of sounds like "Well my Dad will whip your dad's...
I agree. Hoke might as well have shown them "Miracle on Forty-first Street". Yes Virginia there is an Ohio STATE University.
Ya well Hoke is no Bo!
