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!!
for any fan who has watched our team all year, you must agree that our defense is very suspect!!! we go to the wrong gaps, we don't tackle well on run support or in the open field, we don't cover well in secondary, we have only 1 really dependable linebacker and he doesn't play every down??
our chances of shutting down Gordon are very slim!! this puts lots of pressure on the offense to score in the red zone every time!! we can win but it will not be easy and expect the game to go right up to the end! STAVE will catch our secondary at least once with our pants down for easy throws via some receiver standing all alone. it happens almost every game.
i love the buckeyes but i live in realville!! we will have our hands full with the BADGERS but.....we can win it too!!
Braxton may never be the player he once was because of his injury so we spending to much time speculating on all of this!! to replace JT after the year he has had would be very foolish!! i would like to see ohio state move on and keep going in the direction we are headed. many recruits at the qb positon probably agree!!
shawnee, you hit some great points...what is the fascination with cory smith?? he has done very little all year and then they throw the deep pass to him and not to our best deep threat...devin smith!!! wrong smith!!!! we still don't work at getting the ball to vannett or huerman enough and both can catch and run as well as anyone. we show no creativity in getting them the ball and it drives me nuts!!
someone needs to tell thomas, marshall,etc that it's cold in ohio in november and thy have to catch the ball with their hands, not against their chest. nothing changes in fundamentals!!
our defense played ok on saturday. the linemen didn't get off their blocks as quickly as they should but the real weakness on our team is the lb'ers!! grant and perry guessed wrong lots of times and didn't fill the gaps. also, tavis powell is not very good giving run support, poor tackling and he takes bad angles when he comes up from secondary. our defense is just ok!! good but not near being great!!
i have no idea why we don't sub more with the def line....that must be on ash who is not in favor of it...where was hale, shutt and a few others??
This is excellent because you can see what Herman was looking at and how he set this up!! the difference is we executed all of these throws perfectly!! JT played a wonderful game and looked like an ALL-AMERICAN. m,any times the difference between a great play and a bust is a mere number of inches and the ability to do what you're supposed to do at that exact time!!
this team responds to JT like no other i have seen since KRENZEL. JT has so much more talent and more talent around him!!
this guy is a player!! even Millen said he would be an ALL-AMERICAN before he left OSU!! He should start, we have given Grant enought time to show his stuff and he just isn't as good as Kwon!! forget their experience, play the best players!!!
i have an opinion on all matters regarding OHIO STATE FOOTBALL! they may not be correct but i still have them and feel a need to share them...just like all of you.. I liked it that Shelly shared her views on play calling last week on Urban's call in radio show. She has opinions too and her idea of calling a shovel pass was a great idea...slows down rush and is pretty easy to run w/o a lot of bad things happening. We never ran it!!!
i think our offensive coordinator was not in his element last week and he better start opening up to some of the basic plays that every college team runs...but us!!! REMEMBER, If you can't run the ball, you probably won't win!!
Seriously, our poll rating??? like this is even relavent right now??? We have lots of problems with our team and our national rating is not one of them!!! LET'S GET THE TEAM FIXED ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL, THE ratings will take care of themselves!!
LeBRON is fast becoming a national treasure and especially one of ohio's finest!! he has represented himself almost beyond reproach!! he has not embarrassed himself or his team and handles his business with a good head on his shoulders!
whatever he tells the team will be great and he knows of what he talks about!!
so happy he's back in ohio!!! HE'S a Buckeye!!!!
there seemed to be confusion on who was assigned to the QB and who was assigned to the pitch back. very fundamental that those assignments are clear. bennett was double teamed almost everytime so lb'er had to make sure to close on the fullback. we were very slow on filling by the safety's and slow getting off blocks by the corners. pitch back had a full head of steam on most of the outside plays. i would have had bosa hit the QB everytime they ran it as hard as he could hit him. that would get old real quick if you were the QB!! their backs ran very hard and broke tackles...like we need to do!! we were not as physical as we need to be...not yet!!!
really have a hard time understanding why a short pass to our tight ends is not always in our game plan. both of them are about 6-6 and can run!! herman had them flexed most of the time and we never went from 2 tight end set to help ground game and mess up their line stunts. we could have been more basic in our formations to assist the ground game and still had 2 good people to throw too!! herman makes it too complicated and didn't help barrett get off to a better start in first half!
Q IS not motivated and hasn't been since he came to OSU. looks very uncoachable and was not ready to go to NBA and then made sure they knew it by being overweight and out of shape. He's a dime a dozen and might play some in Europe???
I don't hate AMIR, HE seems like a nice kid!! but he is so hard to watch play because he shows no emotion, joy, anger, excitement??? NOTHING!! ZOMBIE-LIKE...WALKING WITH THE DEAD!! if you don't like playing them go somewhere else! we can use the scholarship. find something you enjoy and get involved in that.....
