ROCKFORD, 

I agree, that gives us 3 guys, Thomas and Marshall as well, that have proven they can create space, slip tackles and and pick up YAC. Then you add Samuels, Brown, Campbell, McLaurin and __________ TBD, and I think we have one hell of a rotation.

Now if we can only find a quarterback to get all these playmakers the ball...

GO BUCKS!!!

Sorry refs, and especially replay officials, that wasn't even close to targetting. Urban said he was all for the targetting rule but that he feared the officials would miss apply it. I don't blame the ref. For the field official it's a bang bang play and they don't watch it in slow motion. I do blame the replay officials and the expert in the booth who said it was targetting. Remember, it was supposed to be HEAD TO HEAD.

The rule was meant to penalize cheap shots. This call penalized a great block IMO.

GO BUCKS!!!

BUCKZILLA, AMEN. All these Monday morning second guessers. Do you think Bama and Oregon played perfect games? There is no such thing as a perfect game. Only the striving to be perfect. Anybody can pick a game apart from the safety of their couch. But the ones who have walked on the frontlines, the coaches, have to do it under fire. Make a decision, roll the dice, and hope for the best. Urban saw the Bama defense, not 8 but all 11 players within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage, daring the Buckeyes to pass. Now I can sit on my couch and second guess the pass choice yada yada yada. 

I could go on and question going for it on fourth so much. Or why would you run a double reverse in the red zone and have a receiver, who had never thrown a pass, throw it on the run to a tightly covered receiver (it fooled no one). That pass could have been a pick six just as easily. And then no one would be talking about two minute clock management. But it wasn't a pick six, ergo a great call, not really, it was great execution!

Listen, we all like to coach from the couch. I know I certainly do. But as Gruden would say "C'mon man!" Be real.

GO BUCKS!!!

BrutusB  I like my dog more than most humans.

I hate to admit it but I have the same affliction.

Richt is in the wrong conference. He dumps his bad apples and other SEC teams gobble them up. He probably should bury them on the bench if the competition isn't going to honor his decision to release them for bad behavior .

GRANDTHEFTHARLEY,

Kudos! I would like a breakdown of minutes and reps. Kinda like they do in basketball. With how the game is called, unless your listening to the radio, you have no idea who is on the field. For example, Armani Reeves, as far as I know, was the nickel back in the post season run. I believe I heard his name once. 

The Dispatch use to give you a breakdown of tackles after the game. I for one am very interested in the development of the two deep and for a lot of reasons. But especially this year. I think there will be a lot of movement after 2015. No more VT's please. We are good enough to get the 2's a lot of reps IMHO.

GO BUCKS!!!

I hope Braxton doesn't go anywhere. If his shoulder heals he will definitely:

  1. Help the Buckeyes. 
  2. Be on the right side of another National Championship Team. 
  3. He will be a Buckeye forever. Unlike the Alabama center Linsley (sp?) who now has no team. 

I know Brax has to do what is best for him, but I hope he stays. He can go into CFB HOF as a Buckeye.

But they had a great time and it showed; no one seemed upset.

Sometimes I wish I could adopt that attitude. Naw, not really! I did that with the Indians and the Browns and now I catch a couple of games a year. I prefer my Buckeyes and sitting on the edge of my seat. 

It's good to hear that Minnesota has good fans. Nebraska has great fans. I hope their new coach can get them turned around. I would like to meet them in Indianapolis.

GO BUCKS!!!

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Shame on Saban he started it. You know fan bases get the feeling of entitlement, ours included. But coaches should never allow that to happen to their team. Making excuses is a sure fire way to create "Entitlement".

GO BUCKS!!!

It really is a legitimate excuse. 

Not for a UFM coached team. Urbs will have another joint "Bring your Press Clippings" burning ceremony before he lets that happen.

Will killing VT this year let you feel better about the loss last year?

No! Beating Bama fixed that for me. It silenced 90% of the haters. Anything after that game was frosting for me. 

Virginia Tech rematch, you know their DC is going to cook something up especially for us. Right after he learns who are starter is. That very well could be after the opening kickoff.

No matter who the starter is, if all 3 get snaps, can you imagine the nightmare that would pose for opposing DC's? Barrett (read option), Cardale (opens up whole field and running game) and Braxton ( wildcat) oiy. Of course I would add IMHO.

And you are dead on about new year, new team. I give you PSU vs OSU 2013 vs 2014  

GO BUCKS!!! 

Comment 21 Apr 2015

I, personally, can't wait for the rematch. Wisky will be so pumped. I would elect to kick off and recover the onside kick. 

It has finally sunk in that you are better off saving your gripes, even though they might be true, and give the other team their due. 

For example:

  1. Bryles (whining and bitching) vs Patterson (it is what it is) or the appropriate Bosa shrug after CFP pairings. 
  2. Izzo (most physical game we played all year) vs Ryan (worst refereeing all year) in NCAA Final Four. They were really registering the same beef. I know Bo was "Just getting started". "Deal with it"!

Bite your lip, give the opponent their due and live to fight another day. 

Comment 21 Apr 2015

I would love to freeze frame the opening frame of this GIF and photo shop some bubble comments. Bosa "OMG I am going to kill him" or "My My, look what we have here". And the running back looks like he is already back peddling. For him, I would photoshop the appropriate stain and bubble something like "?" Whatever one thinks when they are confronted with a charging male lion. 

The last frame I would bubble Hackenberg with " WTF just happened?"

GO BUCKS!!!

So Amari, just shut up and admit that the Bucks were a better team. I hope they do get a rematch next year in the NC game next year. 

BOOK IT! There will be a rematch, and the build up is going to be epic. 

To Amari Cooper: When did You have your AH HAH moment? 

  1. Was it when Wisconsin beat Auburn earlier in the day? 
  2. How about heading for the locker room at half time?
  3. After Steve Miller's pick six to cap a 28 unanswered points run?
  4. Pick six to end the game?
  5. None of the above?

Apparently you chose 5. Maybe you can get drafted with Melvin Gordon and discuss how ?!(?%# you would kick our...

But in your defense, it took me only  3 years to accept that Florida Gators were better than our Bucks in 2006.

GO BUCKS!!!

Urban has said spots are won in spring ball, not spring game. Urban also has said if it was up to him he wouldn't have a spring game. He does it because it is tradition and the fans like it. I might add that I think the kids like it as well. Just ask early enrollee Nick Conner if he had fun. Urban is more worried about injuries than anything else. 

Worried about Cardale? I certainly am not. Defenses are always ahead of offenses early on. To put this passing performance in perspective, just flash back to 2014 spring game when Barrett and Cardale were a combined 18 for 61. After game thought "If anything happens to Braxton it is going to be a long year". Another Urban gem, "A quarterback is only as good as the people surrounding him". Spring games bear him out. 

Quarterback derby will be settled in Fall Camp. We will have to wait and see. Of course Urban will settle on 1 of the 3. Eenie meeni minie mo, Urbs can't really make a mistake on this one.

GO BUCKS!!! 

Comment 20 Apr 2015

One of the thrills of watching the replays over and over is watching the lineman throwing their arms up in the air when they know they just sprung Zeke for a game breaking TD. I will always remember Billy Price throwing his arms up in the air signaling TD and Zeke still needing 40 yards, who knew Zeke was that fast. Such a thrill for me, I can't even imagine what it felt like to get the block on the last guy who stop "The run through the Heart of the south".

GO BILLY PRICE!!!

Comment 18 Apr 2015

Neither was Barrett's. They were a combined 18 for 61 last year. I remember thinking if Braxton goes down we are screwed. In retrospect the defense is always ahead of the offense and no time to throw equals a lot of rushed throws and incompletions. I thought both Cardale and Collier settled down and had respectable spring games.

GO BUCKS!!!
