My fiancée had him as a high school teacher. Being too young to know who he was as a basketball player, I can say that from listening to her speak about him, he was certainly a tremendous individual.
Going out on a limb here, but I don't think his big game was in 2008....
These articles are great. You really get a sense of the intricacies and layers of each play. The coaches came in with a great plan and the players executed at a very high level. A complete game for sure. Bragging a bit here, but I was at the game and I cannot wait to watch it again (which I will tonight) to pick up on some of those things I missed on Saturday.
For those suggesting Zeke 'ripped' the play calling is quite hilarious. During the postgame he was was able to quell what I imagine to be a seemingly insurmountable amount of emotion and speak very maturely. This man has been nothing but a team first guy from day one. He is merely echoing the same sentiment from anyone (reasonable minded) who watched the game. He doesn't care about his 100 game streak.. But he does care about 2 carries in the second half and the subsequent L. He deserves to be pissed.
I am sorry this played out the way it did for him and all of the others who will never lace up in The Shoe again. The offensive strategy has been suspect all year. Today we had to witness just how mediocre their decision making really is.
Zeke with two carries second half... Lmao
This game was called the same way the B1G championship game was called when we lost to MSU.
TO's were pretty bad, but as many have already commented those should get better as this team matures. I was really glad to see top scoring coming from multiple players.
That's the best. I am not privy to the upvote, but you get a virtual thumbs up for the reference.
... and Chip took off.... hahahaha
Without the threat of something, just SOMEthing else, other than a straight QB run, I really wish they would turn the page on Miller out of the wildcat.
I did note on Saturday where they ran a play setting Marshall (I think) in motion and Miller broke for a substantial gain. Even something subtle like that which doesn't put all focus on Miller could have its merits.
My thoughts as an arm chair coach..
I have used the link below to find a few different courses. Just key in your zip and a mile preference and you're good to go.
Return Of The Real.
Oh, Amir. As difficult as it is to remember, we did see flashes of what Amir can do. What I noticed, at least, is he seemed simply lack motivation - he possesses all of the other qualities that make a fully capable basketball player. I am glad to see that he has been given this chance and I hope he makes the best of it.
Best of luck to Slam Thompson! Man, that kid was really fun to watch.
327 - Boom
I want to see that Cardale grin again. The big man gets it done! Lets goooooo
JT is a gamer - This year he has demonstrated his preparedness when called upon - which was very evident last week against PSU.
CJ came up big (to say the very least) to finish out the season and did something no other QB on this team can claim. Subsequently, he earned the right to start and now those responsibilities are shifting.
They have both been able to do truly remarkable things while at the helm. I cannot help but think that it is because of team chemistry – truly playing for one another. I hope Cardale keeps his head up and remains focused. As we saw all of last year, especially at QB, you just never know when your number will be called. Go Bucks. Cheers, everyone!
There seemed to be a number of Cardale haters around me, too. I was also sitting in C Deck. There was booing and few people hurling outlandish remarks blaming Cardale for seemingly everything - even after some running plays! It was crazy.
I would expect a resurgence similar to what we saw from Jalin after the Minnesota game last year. After that game he acknowledged where he needed to improve, put in work during subsequent practices and came out and played very well against Indiana. As a whole, I foresee the team coming together this week and I expect them to have a great game against Maryland. Lets goooooo!
While Jones hasn’t been the sensation he was last year, Barrett has done nothing to prove he’s the guy either. In my humble opinion, both QB’s have been disadvantaged due to a combination of poor play calling and O-Line performance.
Look, throughout the offseason, with all of the player assessments and evaluations, the coaching staff has determined CJ to be the guy. So, we are rolling with CJ until we are given a real reason otherwise.
Its really hard to pick one favorite, however this has to be up there for me. I was also at this game and it still give me chills when I watch the video. Cheers, everyone.
The tomb that is the Schott...... Like some other posts, I would like to see St. John's utilized more and it pains me to think of it potentially going away. Its not only great for basketball games, but what a fantastic place for Skull Sessions.. To me St. Johns is more representative of what a college basketball arena should be.
I am curious if tOSU or any college for that matter offers a class or provides some guidance on dealing with the negativity stemming from social media etc.. Social media in a sense provides anyone with a direct line of communication to someone else and I can see how the negativity could really weigh on the young, impressionable and perhaps fragile minds of these KIDS.
When taking everything into consideration, was this the best game the Buckeyes have ever played? I may say that in my lifetime at least it is the best game I have ever seen.
