Aaron Craft is afraid to shoot the ball unless it's a lay up. We need scorers. We need 3 pt shots that go in when we're down 10.
There's a kid that I think TOSU should consider. A WR from California with good height. Last name is Brodus (spelling ?) He's the son of rapper Snoop Dog, from a segment on ESPN. I'm not a fan of rap but I think this kid looks very good. I think we should start getting taller WR as it seems to be a good trend. He will sign next February for college. 2015 class
Basketball....... Where have all of the cup cakes gone. Nothing like competition to show how weak that you are.
I checked out Scout.com and there were several uncommitted kids who were in the top 100 national rankings who had OSU as a team of interest and a couple had visits scheduled to OSU in late January. I hope we can get a couple 4 star players. Also not yet committed was the number 1 TE. Instead of trying to get the kid committed to PSU I think we should swoop in and steal the top TE in the country. That will be important as we prep the next QB.
The above candidates sound great. I would suggest going for a young coach. Hart may be good but with 44 yrs of experience he's got to be near retirement. I choose Tressel. Youth will help us with recruiting. I also would strip Fickell of the DC title. I know it would be an embarrassment for him but he hasn't earned the title.
Great story. I sure as hell hope the OSU coaching staff reads this site. It would do them a service hearing the real opinion of the fans. They do still work for the university and fans don't they ?
Two things that I want to say.
If the defense is this bad....and it is very bad...... why isn't someone being fired?????????????
I hope that Braxton decides to go pro. Is he ready ? NO But who cares...... we need a QB not another RB. Watched too many bowl games where QB's threw often and well. Imagine having 300+ yards passing in a game. Imagine passes being thrown accurately. Not 6 feet off the ground where they can easily be intercepted.
I love B. Miller but he's not yet ready for the pro's. They insist that you pass well. BM is improved but still over throws or under throws too many receivers. He would get drafted behind McCarron, Mettenburg, Jordon, Bridgewater, fifth QB.... is that the 3rd or 4th round ? Stay, learn, improve, grow....... if you're tired of being hit...... hand off the damned ball or pass it.
I was about to type we need to pass the freaking ball (on target), then the TD. Thank God !
Great Game ! Go Bucks !
Should be a #2 seed and play close to home.
Today is HUGE. I would love to see something very different. I would love to see the Buckeyes challenge the ball after it's been in bounded. Including occasional traps/double teams in the back court to try to force turnovers. I know many just want more of the same but a high pressure defensive attitude could keep the Badgers of balance.
GO BUCKS !
Anyone know who's wearing Red and who's White today ?
I am a Minnesota Viking fan. I've posted on a Vikings message board that I think Troy Smith would be a great choice for QB. Minnesota has terrible back up QB's and an unproven starter.
I hope I can get other Viking fans and team management to consider him. Career QB rating of 159.7 according to wikipedia
I have on my homepage igoogle. It has many options. One is ESPN. yesterday it had a link to a video on Ohio State. It spoke of the 2013 season and spoke much on defense. I don't know how easy it can be found. Good luck.
I have huge hopes and expectations for this years team.
One thing that bothered me all year in 2012 was our/Braxton's passing efficiency. There were far too many times when passes were thrown 10 yards short, far wide, or over thrown. That can't happen on this level. I hope the coaches use all of the best corrective technics to sharpen Braxton's skill set. If we can make our passing game a serious threat, it will open up the running game a lot. Then watch out. Opponents will have no idea how to stop this train and our wins and scoring will soar which will boost our rise in the polls. What's left ? A game on January 8.
I love the game that Braxton has. But he needs a solid passing game to be a complete QB and to be able to have a good shot in the NFL.
A huge win !
up 6 with 18 sec remaining. Looks good
Great block by ER
44 seconds and we go to the line up 5 and missed the first and second shot
AW offensive foul ? Not what we needed
7:00 left up 5 we need an offensive push.
Wow ! This is great ! GO BUCKS !
I really hope that Matta has the team intensify their defense in the 2nd 1/2. All 5 players pressuring the ball and cutting off passing lanes. A full court press if we're trying to come back also.
Buckeyes can't hold on to the damned ball. Too many turnovers !
As a Buckeye fan, I am an eternal optimist. However, this Basketball team is not good. Not a contender. At 4.09 left in the game we're down by 22. Looks too much like the Indiana game. We don't have a reliable 3 pt shooter. We don't rebound well enough. We're not using pressure defense to cause turnovers. (full court press). We're not good enough to challenge for the Big 10 title. Maybe we can be a spoiler. We do have a few good players but we need a good recruiting class (or two) to get back to the standards we are used to.
