good idea! at least move Bosa around more on the line and not always at end position!!
good point, he needs to lead them and let them run under it. on every play the receiver had them beat by a stride....that's enough if he throws it quicker and deeper!!
Exactly Buckeyecrusader, that's why I said that the coaches cannot be happy with the overall defense last week! Really didn't play that well all the way thru the line up. Washington and Bosa good, others, not so good!!
Mcmillian had most of his tackles after they had gained 5 yards! he was handled many times by blockers and he couldn't seem to shed them until the back was past him. he also took on the blockers with the wrong shoulder and the back went by him too easily. he should take the blocker on straight up so he could then go either direction. he was not fundamentally sound and he knows it!
the defense was lucky that western Michigan couldn't find the end zone because they had many long drives and had advantage on time of possession!
this was not a good game by almost every player! defensive backs were not tackling, poor angles, Very little penetration by defensive line, we didn't blitz much....IU has much better offense and will score if we don't play better!
I would have to think the defensive coaches were not all that happy with our defense!! many times our linebackers were blocked on the counter dive play that number 32 ran at will. WESTERN MICHIGAN had many long drives of over 10 plays but couldn't get it across the last line! they had a pretty large number on their time of possession as well.
indiania has a much better offensive attack and will score lots of points this Saturday unless we get this shored up!! we took poor angles in the secondary as well and basically looked very average against a MAC team!!
sorry to complain but just pointing out that we really didn't look that great on defense and must get a lot better as we get into the big 10 season. did anyone else see it the way I did???
sorry to say but much of the ineptness of our offense goes on the shoulders of our offensive coaches!! We have to remember the old saying, YOU DANCE WITH WHO BRUNG YOU! The translation is one word....ZEKE! I could care less what defense they bring on the front line, it can be blocked! there are only so many looks a team can give an offensive line and we must keep running the ball! we don't even look like we're running the same offense, did it leave with Herman??
Another mistake is we are playing too many players at the receiving position and not getting the ball to the right guys....MARSHALL, MILLER, THOMAS, VANNETT, SMITH, SAMUELS!! first play of the game we had Campbell in there and it ends up with a penality! as a result, our offense has no flow, no rhythm and no purpose.
Meyer needs to get more reps with the do'ers starting with a DECISION ON THE BEST QB. The only time they get off the field is when they are really tired!! this offense can be fixed because it isn't broken...just being fooled with too much!!!
Adversity creates opportunity!! Next man up....give the ko's to miller, let him play some h-back and we have enough guys on defense to stop them anyhow!! play like CHAMPIONS!!!
NavyBuck...you are dead on!! policy will pay for everything...above his deductible!! None of the other scenario come into play if it was sudden/accidental discharge of water!! need to clean it up and dry it out quickly to mitigate possibility of MOLD!!
Rocket man...listen to your wife and you will NEVER come home to a house under water!!! lots of stuff can cause water damage inside home, water off, no water damage!!!
that is a good point, if they have back up of sewers/drains and it couldn't keep up there may be coverage. however, it sounded like it was surface water /flooding. Regardless, if there is sump pump coverage, it has limits to the dwelling and the loss will still be greater than his coverage, imo. If the home was in a flood plain, he would have had flood insurance but that has a high deductible as well. Bottom line, Coach Meyer will be out of pocket for a lot of this loss!
I have been insurance agent for 38 years....THIS IS NOT A COVERED LOSS!! Coach will eat this one unless he has flood insurance and most people do not!! Since he has finished basement, this looks like it could be a pretty big loss....OUT of pocket!! Feel bad for the Meyers family but they will get it fixed!
What you do speaks more loudly than what you say!!! Dontre, time is running out! Now is your time!!!
All three of these players are among the very best ever to play for OSU! they all belong in the COLLEGE HALL OF FAME!!
Tell me, how do you NOT love this young man??? he is a great man who has learned a lot in the last year or two. we should be very proud of his maturity and growth in all of this!!
I was at CAL GAME in Berkley. WE owned the place!!
Grant improved a bunch this year!! credit to him and his coach!!
our seniors are very disappointing!! scott threw several lazy passes which led to breakaway baskets!! williams still sucks and always will...no heart for the game!!! sam got a great pass from russell and can't make a lay-up! he only dunks when he is in the open...no game!! we will be licky to make the field of 64!!
I THINK THE CREDIT FOR OUR DEFENSE SHOULD BE SPREAD AROUND ALL 4 OF OUR DEF COACHES! THIS GROUP HAD GREAT CHEMISTRY WHICH MIGHT HAVE BEEN LACKING LAST YEAR!!.
luke has taken his share of heat and just kept working hard. he has earned all of our reapect!!
the key for our defense in 2015 will be if the coaches can keep them hungary for even more as a defensive team!! shutting teams down, shut-outs,etc,etc...they need to try to improve and not get full of themselves. i would guarantee that other teams will be working hard to beat the BUCKEYES NEXT YEAR!!!
dave lettermen is a phoney creep!! he is so liberal and political that he has turned off millions who find him to be an OBAMA shill. he started by bashing BUSH everynight for years! yet he never says anything negative about OBAMA!!
i'm glad he's leaving and i have not watched his show for years! i will watch only the part that URBAN is on since dave makes me sick! FUNNY??? NOT IN MY BOOK!!!
What we all can be glad of is...WE DON'T HAVE TO COACH THIS TEAM!! i would be going crazy looking at some of these guys and their lack of excitement about a game they are supposed to love!!! williams, russell, loving all looked like they were out at a recess just killing time until they had to go back into school!! this will be a real test of Matta's coaching!!!!
I really don't care if HARBAUGH comes back to michigan or not but, I really doubt he does! Coaching in the pros is the top of the ladder for a coach. There are less than 30 of these positions in the world and he has one. Coming back to college is a step down regardless of the money!
There will be many opportunities for JIM beyond THE 49'ERS. Still say he stays in the pros!!
i'm with you H8UM!! tate is a real player who gives it his all. i like all the freshmen and matta should play them more!!
i wrote to Dodd as well and asked him how he sleeps at night. he ripped TRESSEL like he was a child molester!! really terrible article and he showed no class!! He went way over the line!!
i think the miami job will be open as well. regardless, jimmy boy stays in the pros!! much better job and he doesn't have to do the recruiting thing!!!
question i have is...what did the reserve linemen do last week at practice that gave the coaches the confidence to play them sat night??
i cannot figure out our def coaches!!!! they played the secondary entirely different as well. why did they wait 13 weeks to make these changes???
made all the difference between stopping them and letting them run wild!! thanks for the changes and letting the others see action. they did a great job too!!
