This is at least the second time Price has mentioned Burrell when he has been interviewed. It seems like Price has really taken him under his wing. This bodes well for the internal part of the line.
PSU was unranked when we played them. Personally I think the 2015 scum game should be considered elite but I eliminated all subjectivity and only included what the ranking committees said.
I stated above that I define elite as a team ranked inside the top ten at the time of the game. But for your information:
2014 MSU - ranked 7
2015 Notre Dame ranked 8
Wisconsin ranked 8
Nebraska ranked 9
TTUN Ranked 3
2015 MSU ranked 9
2016 Clemson ranked 3
Other notables that I did not count
2015 TTUN ranked 12
Oklahoma ranked 14
You are right on the 1968 team. My mistake.
Yes he has taken too much heat. I totally agree. For you stat geeks, here is one that I find interesting. Going back to 1968, if you rate a QB by how well he plays against elite teams, JT rates very high. I define an elite team as a team that is ranked inside the top ten when the game is played.
Rex Kern - 5 - 0 = 100%
Craig Krenzel - 5 - 1 = 83%
JT Barrett - 5-2 = 71%
Pretty good company.
JT is also the only one of the 3 who has not lost to TTUN. Kern lost to TTUN in 1968 when they were ranked 12th and Krenzel's one loss against a top 10 team came against them in 2003 when they were ranked 5th.
Weber averaged 6 yards per carry last year. He averaged 4 yards per carry receiving. If 4 YPC makes you a bell cow, he is already there.
In Texas guns are allowed in any bar or restaurant that makes less than 50% of its revenue from alcohol sales. If a place has a 50% sign on the door you can't bring a gun in, which in my mind is smart. If the primary product is alcohol, not allowing guns is s good idea, Also, if you get stopped for an alcohol related indent like public intoxication or DUI, and you have a gun in the vicinity, you lose your concealed carry license. We should be held to a higher standard.
Luke is going to get some kids who no one knew at the time was among the best in the state, no matter what their ratings reflected. He has always been able to find those hidden gems like Darren Lee. When he can land a few of those he will turn that program around.
Not sure Urban has always been perfect at adapting schemes. I think Herman was not maybe not Urban. In 2014 Herman adapted the offense to a new QB style when Barrett was lost. In 2015 after Herman left Urban/Beck/Warriner tried to shoehorn a 6'5", 250 pound QB into a read option offense. We all know how 2015 worked out.
Saw the announcement of the Zeke bobbleheads on the morning news on Friday. I ordered mine immediately. Can'r wait to get it.
He can hang out with Randy Gregory with all the free time they have
Tracy got a haircut. He looks good.
I understand what Peters is saying he should find a better person to compare himself to than Ray Lewis. He was probably too young to know about the real Ray Lewis the person.
If he was butt hurt that OSU fans did not root for him as an "Ohio Kid" just wait for his reception next time. And as far as not being recruited by the big in state school......19-6 should give him an indication why.
Same here. Could not pass it up. Maybe the best post in a long time.
Thanks, Louie, I get it now.
Maybe it has to do with a couple of bourbons tonight but I have no clue what this means.
I love the way Urban looks at him with such reverence as he is talking. Shows how much he respects him.
I can't disagree with anything you said. Yes, it is the same every year. Maybe it is just the optimist and/or maybe the homer in me but I can't help believe that with Wilson there is a new sheriff in town with experience and knowledge we have not seen in many years.
I love the fact that Oklahoma will have no tape on us for the 2nd game. I predict the coaches call a very conservative game against Indiana and then unleash the beasts, offensive and defensive, against Stoops and Company.
Chis Ash comes to his office every day and thinks to himself "you know, I had it pretty good at Ohio State. Why did I ever leave?"
LOL Did you really say that? The first time we have 2 back to back 3 and outs, the board will be melting down screaming for Wilson to be fired. Expectations are being set that is we don't score every time we have the ball the season will be a total failure. We have to score every time and we have to beat each and every opponent by at least 50 points.
I love Mike Leach. Living in Texas when he coached at Lubbock, he would frequently offer great quotes. I loved watching sports every night. As for entertaining coaches, the Ole Ball Coach is number 1 with The Pirate a close second.
I think he has a great season also. It is kind of a shame that in some ways he is still playing in the shadow of Cardale and his bionic arm. If Cardale had just been another human and not a guy who could wing a ball 60 yards with a flick of the wrist, JT's arm would never be in question.
