I did think that quote stuck out. Gotta love it!
Was at the game in Dallas and I was mildly surprised that didn't get flagged. That stuff just always seems to go against us, kind of like Corey Smith targeting penalty.
Was more outraged Bennett got flagged on the other play. He was getting mauled and the Duck cam in from behind and pushed Bosa in the back. Didn't care much for Herbie's analysis after the commercial break on the penalty either.
Tucker worked for Saban before @ MSU and LSU so he should know what he is getting. When he was here 2001-2004 defense was pretty good. Saban also has to be thinking the ex-NFL coach is good cache for recruiting. Seems like hire makes sense.
That being said, used love you Mel for being a Buckeye coach on 2002 team and all, but now that you are at Bama, you are dead to me...
Awesome - its a twofer - fills a position of need AND a local kid gets to be a Buckeye!
Or Indiana can just let Tate get a uncontested dunk in a wide open court...
Need to make these free throws down the stretch. almost killed us @ NW.
Can we at least give the 25K difference between BecK and Herman to Warriner? He is MVP on coaching staff in my eyes. The line has dramatically improved every year he has been here. So much more physical and Ohio State like these days. As Spielman once lamented about a lackluster effort of line play - "pads should be popping like firecrackers!" - we've got that now.
Agreed. the Duck fans I met this week were classy and nice, Enjoyed the experience.
PS Urban - we are now even, you owed us one!
From what I saw of Oregon defense against FSU is they are very fast and close to the ball in a hurry. Their Dline was also very good. Different than the Bama stout tackles as seems like Ducks are more athletic and rangy type. I think not nearly as disciplined as Bama D. I think we are going to need to do some misdirection, counters, & cut backs early to add to power game to keep them guessing. Once get them guessing and a little tired, then hammer them with EZE power inside.
Big thing for our D is to keep discipline, do your job and be where supposed to be, rally to ball and wrap up. Limit explosive plays and make them earn every yard. I think we are going to see a lot of the quarters to attack the run option of Oregon.
No need to denigrate one for the other. Remember Tressel not only restored us to national prominence with several big bowl game wins, multiple NC appearances, won a NC, AND he posted an impressive record against TTUN. Rejoice in the memories and always respect the Vest.
It is early and Urban has not lost a regular season Big Ten game, won 1 B1G Title, and has us in a semifinal game. Great start for sure, but he has also lost a bowl game to Clemson, lost to MSU in B1G championship, and lost to VT. We can start comparing him to Tress when he delivers a bowl win, maybe a championship. Since still scarred from the Gator debacle and his smirk on sideline as Troy Smith and the Ginless Bucks got crushed, I'll only love him when he gets a second one...Not far fetched as this team is young and there is plenty of talent coming.
Micheal Thomas stepped it up Wisky game. Corey Smith was too before the terrible call for targeting ejection. It was great to see so that everything didn't fall one Cardale having to win it. Hopefully, this put enough on film for Bama not to be able to put 9 in box and let EzE and Heurrman loose.
Yes I like this idea. Warriner already is co-coordinator and maybe that locks him up a few more years. Bring in an up and comer QB coach to maybe be co-coordinator. Maybe Scott Frost gets a better title and a raise.
Why don't they point the investigative lens and holier than thou judgement towards the coaches and universities that will not let players transfer by releasing from scholarship? I would like to hear in depth the rationale and defense for Washburn not letting Pierre Desir go be closer to his wife and kids. Then someone take that rationale and defense apart. What about the St Joe's coach and Obrien? Why don't these folks put the microscope on the character of these coaches and admins rather than trash folks like Tressel and publish unsubstantiated innuedo?
I like the Black Keys and Ohio Players suggestions as an addition to keeping Hang on Sloopy as 4th Quarter song . I have thought for a long time that we need some fresh material for the next generation, especially considering many of the players don't have the same taste in music. If the purpose is to get the crowd and the team jacked up, we need to find some things that are relevant to them, All the lights would be cool for night games for sure,.
The author isn't worthy to write about his subject. I try to never click on the anything at SI or comment there even when outraged. A better revenge is to give low reviews to the author at places like Amazon.
I just added a one star review and you weren't kidding, there were some brutal (and funny) ones there. Wish could have given it a negative star but they make you give it one to comment. Thanks for the link.
I stopped watching ESecPN unless there is a game I absolutely want to see on it. No sportscenter, no GameDay, no BS analyst stuff, no extra BBall/football games, etc. If everyone stopped watching then ratings go down and hits it in the pocketbook. Extra bonus is I get to spend more time reading up on articles and gametime stuff here.
Dump SI & ESPN the Magazine. Donating my SI subsciption renewal money to Respect the Basement instead.
Plus don't go to SI or ESPin websites when they post inflammatory buckeye stuff, when you go read it and comment, they get pagehits for advertising money. They purposefully post stuff to get us fired up because know will drive up traffic.
I think can have 9 AC so these left. got any candidates?
-Pat Perles, KC Chiefs son of George Perles
-Joe Gilbert, Illini, used to coach Toledo & Houston
-Lecharles Bentley OLINE academy
-Bruce's grandson? Robiskie's dad?
-Stan Hixon, Bills WR coach?
-think Meyer might coach here?
Ironic considering the legends verses liars shirt, but this is a classy letter:
Contact BTN page said it was WOW in Columbus doing it. I'm WOW customer so whoever working there having a bad day or must be intoxicated, incompentent or that inattentive.
