I thought the offensive play calls were too predictable in the 2nd half and Penn St did their homework on us. It's going to happen.
The tale of two halves.... first half, dominating defense with smash mouth offense. 2nd half, here's where I think that we showed Penn St too much respect. I would like to have seen the playbook open up (maybe the shovel pass or WR screen on first down). Defensively, they continued to play hard, Penn St just made some plays. The roughing the passer on Bosa was tough, but he made up for it... he's kinda good, just in case no one has noticed.
Along with Bosa, I thought Steve Miller played great.
Nicely put... thumbs up!
James Franklin says he will be committed to the run game and offensive balance throughout Saturday's contest against Ohio State
Yeah...ummm... about that. Good luck with that Coach!
There's a woodshed out back and Penn St is about to be taken to it! It's nothing personal, it's just business. Well, upon further thought... it's always kind of personal.
It's always great to hear about a position group bonding. You know that they want to push each other and have each other's backs. Soooo many weapons to choose from.....
Does anyone think that when Hoke talks to his team, it's in the same tone as the Pinocchio commercial "I see a lot of potential in this room....."
Go ahead and laugh at me all you want... Kenny G knows the offense very well. I'm sure his days with the LA KISS won't be for long with the pay upgrade to be an assistant coach at his alma matter. Just sayin'....
All of the hypotheticals are nice. JT being mentioned for Heisman is nice but not sure that I'm with that conversation as of yet. More than anything, Rutgers comes first. This team has a great upside. The youth movement is fun and exciting to watch.
"high and tight boo boo"... hahahah, love it!
A couple things I took from the game..
I would love to see more McMillan
Darron, your mom is awesome!
JT is getting very comfortable and that's bad news for everyone on the schedule
Announcers keep saying how EZE doesn't have the same power Carlos has. I'm not sure what games they're watching, but EZE moves a pile. So, OK...maybe he doesn't have Carlos' strength, but he's far from finesse
Please, just throw Michael the damn ball!
Say...Who's that #97? He's kinda good. (well, except for the goaline play where he should've gone inside, but Coach Johnson fixed that)
Thanks for reading,
All of the names mentioned are great and I won't argue against any of them. I look at the current team and we can get after the QB with just our front 4, what I would love to see is a Corner that can come in here and be a shut down Corner. I want to believe that we currently have a couple guys that are capable on the current roster, but so far, there is no evidence to support the theory. A kid like Peppers would ideal. (please forgive me for mentioning anyone on THAT roster, but the kid has the goods)
This was caught on TV, they chanted "YOU SUCK" just as Utah was lining up for a FG... which they made.
I'm pretty confident that SCUM will make whatever play they need to for Les Miles first and foremost.
Thoughts and Prayers to the Davis family.
For me, I'm most happy for Indiana. They haven't had much to cheer for in recent memory.
Iowa and Nebraska... nicely done!
Maryland... looks better than I thought they were going to look
Rutgers...I didn't think they were going to beat Navy. I don't mind admitting when I'm wrong. I was wrong.
Michigan St, Penn St and Wisconsin.... they did what they were supposed to do, to schools of lesser quality.
Northwestern and Purdue...FINALLY!
Illinois... what was that?? Scared me for a second there.
Minnesota... I really want to like them and they show these glimpses of taking the next step, then they tank, then they beat San Jose St. David Cobb is very Laurence Maroney like
Utah.... nice win!
Thanks for reading,
I'm not so sure that I agree with the assessment that JT was up and down during the VT game. Statistically, it would appear to be so... but I believe that the stats don't show the reality. VT had a defensive gameplan that we weren't prepared for, there were no screens called, no quick passes called and let us not forget about the dropped balls. Let's just say that there were no dropped balls, then I believe that the VT game would be the game "JT would've won on his own". 9 completions for 219yards, those are some big plays.
I apologize... I didn't look thorough enough. I did a quick look before I posted and didn't see anything.
I sure hope that this young man can get his life together before it's too late. Best of luck Noah!
We're about to see what Gunner is made of after he takes his first shot from Sir Bosa!
Thank you kind sir! I feel a strong finish is coming as far as recruiting goes. The "3 star" signings always intrigue me. Some turn out to be great players, Malcom Jenkins and James Laurenitis (sp) come to mind right away as 2 prime examples.
What are your thoughts on Josh Sweat? Is the general thought that FSU or VT is the team to land him at this point?
I like to think that the hate is nothing more than jealousy
now that the bad taste is starting to fade, let's buckle down and remind Cinci why we're the best damn team in Ohio.
