Your problem is one that afflicts several people.  With counseling, however, I am confident that you can be cured of the dreaded disease that Redskins fandom.

I don't think Thomas was talking about the team, but about himself.  The Smiths are the highly touted ones.  Evan Spencer is the returning starter and Dontre is a superstar.    No one hears Thomas bark until he catches TD passes.    He may be this year's Joey Bosa.

I bet that was what Michigan State said last week also.  Ooooops!!!!

I absolutely totally agree.   We were promised all of this aggressive press coverage and I did not see a corner jamming a receiver at the line once.  They lined up tight and ran backwards as soon as the ball was snapped.   I can't see that this supposed genius Ash has done anything at all.

I understand the young line and the young quarterback..  And I don't even mind with defenses catching up to the spread.  My biggest concern is that we seem incapable of adjusting.    I understand that beating them over the top stops that zero coverage defense, but is that really possible when the defense arrives only a couple of beats after the ball arrives?  In this case downfield routes don't have time to develop.   I went back and watched the game again and was still mystified as to why there was no adjustments at all. 

My second concern is the lack of press coverage.  I thought Chis Ash was supposed to be implementing a fool proof system where the corners jammed the receivers at the line throwing them off the routes and allowing the line another couple of seconds.  I saw none of that.  The corners played up and as soon as they snapped the ball they ran backwards.   I saw (as always) this nonsense about fire Fickle, but nothing on the failures of the supposed second coming named Chis Ash.

I am surprised we haven't see a Fire Fickle post as a result of this.

Really not surprised.  There have been no Chad Lindsey sightings in any reports or mentions of the OLine.   Something must have been wrong the whole time.  Best of luck of luck to the young man.

Mark Stoops flying in on a helicopter versus Lebron James giving the pregame speech and being able to hang out on the sidelines with him.   If you wanted to impress on your twitter account would you rather have a selfie with Lebron or Stoops.   With that said,   I am sure it will be hard for him to turn down the home state team.  It will be interesting.

I am sure the NCAA would classify that as a violation and launch an investigation into monopoly-gate.

I believe an ACL takes 8-10 months, conservatively.   My daughter was a dancer and she was back dancing 9 months for her surgery.  An absolute worst case is 12 months.    I believe he tore his halfway through his senior year of high school.   That is way more than enough time.   I believe he ran many of the reps on scout team last year so they obviously felt he was sufficiently healed.

Don't forget Cager.  He is supposed to be there and has said in the past that he and Gibson has talked about playing together.

Of course it is Linda Cohn.  Can't you tell by that awful nasal voice?   How can you be an announcer of any type and talk through your nose?  I see her on TV and turn the channel.  Listening to her is like nails on a chalkboard.

OK, got it.  We lost an amazing player and we have to move on.  Have seen this article more times than I can count this week.   We all know this.  Let's move on to new story lines.  There have to be more than this.  I am looking forward to this season because I have faith in Meyer's recruiting.    If you remove the piece of having to replace a 2 time B1G player of the year and Heisman candidate who was anticipated to lead us to the promised land this year (granted that is a big piece), we would all be very excited about this kid leading the team.   J.T. Was the number 3 dual threat QB in the nation, was redshirted to learn and has now been taking snaps in Spring and Fall practice.   This the the kind of player that Meyer wants for his offense and he has learned and been groomed in exactly the formula Meyer said should have been done with Miller.  I have seen and read some cool things on this young man, but the most exciting thing is what I haven't seen; turnovers.  He doesn't turn the ball over.  He is very careful and I believe that is a more important trait when you have so many playmakers around you than being able to throw 75 years in the air.

I totally agree withb Run. Just because someone assigns multiple stars to kids, we set expectation and fans are disappointed if the kid doesn't live up to them. I am rooting for this kid to see him succeed and so I don't ever have to read another article on here about what a disappointment he has been. I love site but I am tired of every Curtis Grant article starting off by stating what a disappointment he has been. As a young man trying to find himself and his game, I am sure it doesn't help that every time he sees his name on a "fan site", 90 percent the article details how he was highly rated and ssupposed to come in and be an All American but yet he has failed miserably. And then the final 10% says that he seems to be playing well now but with his past we can't be sure. How could the kid regain his confidence when he has been continually reminded how he has failed to live up to that dumbasses star system. Please, 121W staff, if you writeban other article on this kid, do it on his success on the field, or on his shoe size or hair but stay away from the failure to live up to expectations. It has been done to death and I for one am tired of it. Still love the site. 11W is my go to site for OSU.

Why do you listen to that moron.  He is the worst host on ESPN.  He has no real opinions; only spouts provocative BS.
