Comment 24 May 2014

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???

Kyle,

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?

GO BUCKS!!!

Doc,

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.

Buckskin,

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!!

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!!

I am not saying I would like to see Gardner carried out on a stretcher, but I sure has he'll don't want to see him carted off the field on Meechigans shoulders either. 

Play your ass off for 60 minutes and save the celebrating for after the game. 

GO BUCKS!!! Bring on TTUN!!

The rookies are in the same foxhole with the Vets. They get it. They get it real fast. Everyone knows the whole season, that's right, the whole season rides on the outcome of this game. Not Michigan State, not Stanford not even Alabama. 

GO BUCKS!!! Bring on TTUN!!

I think a lot of it depends on who comes a calling after the bowl games. And whether or not you are a projected first rounder or not. Remember when Anthony Gonzalez said he was coming back and then was projected as a first rounder and Tressell advised him to turn pro.

Roby is hands down the best tackler on the team and i believe the fastest player on the team as well. I think he is going to be making a lot of money on Sundays. JMHO. 

Comment 21 Nov 2013

My guess, make that WAG, is Braxton will be back and his heir apparent ? will get plenty of snaps next year. Then again maybe not. I give you AJ McCarron at Alabama. His backup has hardly played. 

Comment 21 Nov 2013

I think the giant elephant in the room is our defense. I don't think Urban can ignore it for another year. Expect changes. It comes with job. 

GO BUCKS!!! Bring on the Hoosiers!!

"I hate to say this, but Urban looks tired in that picture."

CC I agree and I am worried about Urban. Ever since the Northwestern game when he initially sent the field goal team out on fourth and 1 foot at the goal line. Evan Spencer (who was on the goal line and therefore had a birdseye view) was imploring Urban to review it. That it was a touch down. If you saved the tape go back and look at it. Coach had a blank stare on his face. Love Urban and what he has done. But I worry about him. IMHO.
