You do realize we don't beat Bama and Oregon without Cardale's legs right?

 I totally agree! But no one is confusing Doledale for a running quarterback. IMHO, Cardale won the starting job in 2015 on his arm and his arm alone. AND this is why I agree with your thinking. Even Urban F Meyer was willing to scrap his offense for a strong armed QB. Seeing how Alabama through the proverbial sink at their secondary to stem the bleeding. Which opened up huge running lanes for the Glenville product. 

Go Bucks!!!

CincyBuck, For sure they could use his athleticism. Isn't Charles Barkley down to 6'4" from 6'8" when he was playing at Auburn. I don't see why he couldn't be a rebounding force.

But the thing that struck me the most when I saw the original clips of "this day off" from spring practice, was "they are playing basketball". You got to be kidding me. I guess it shows how serious Meyers commitment to make it fun really is. Also it backs up his statement that he looks for kids that play multiple sports. 

After I saw how aggressive he was at defensive end I wouldn't expect Berry to have much difficulty blocking at tight end.

Go Bucks!!!

he too often tries to turn a simple tackle into a big-time hit.

 I am not worried about that. Not since Ash instituted the Rugby tackle the Buckeyes have been solid tacklers. The auxiliary effect has been huge. Concussions are down, shoulder separations are down. Basically injuries have been down.

If the Browns lose, as they have every opener since 2002, I'm not watching another game until 2018. What is there to like about the team? It's a sideshow operated by a patsy of the cabal.

DJ I thought I was the only one who did that. The last opener I turned on, the Browns were driving on the first series of the game and the QB was stopped on the one foot line, fumbled the ball into the end zone, broke his collarbone, they lost the ball and on top of it had a 15 yard penalty added on. CLICK...

I am going to watch the Browns again when they have at least 3 wins. 

Editors note: that's in a season

Gareon didn't know three of the witnesses who were in the room, it was the first night he met them.

If that is the case then Gareon is a very foolish young man. When El Guapo got that 3 game suspension, Meyer told Hyde "He shouldn't have put himself in that situation". He said the same thing to Sprinkle. It has been preached to them for 4 years by Urban Meyer.

Remember Lou Holtz speech about choices...? Life is all about the choices we make isn't it?

It is a shame either way.

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!!!
