I feel bad for whomever it is they choose at #1. Hopefully they will trade the pick for 5 O-Linemen.
The NFL and the Clowns are going to crush Deshaun Watson's career in maybe 6 weeks - why would UFM want to deal with all that sadness and losing other than an obscene amount of $$
His players can only do so much with what position they are put in.
I hear Peppers can play 15 positions.....
Soapbox aside: Please don't tell me to "take it one game at a time," either. This may shock some people due to my wealth of football knowledge, but I'm not on the team nor involved in any of its preparation
I was cautiously optimistic that the Buckeyes could look like the team we saw in the last two games of the '15 season. Having passed the Norman test with flying colors, I'm now wildly optimistic that we end up in the top 2. It's the beauty of being a Fan, I don't have to temper expectations. (Beause a loss is going to be crushing no matter my expectation)
With games @ both Clemson and Houston we will see where Louisville belongs in the pecking order in 2016. But they would need to put together multiple 10+ win seasons before I'd think of them as anything but one hit wonders.
Wez - It was worse than you think! Back in the 70's the Buckeyes could only be on TV twice a year (other than the Rose bowl, and until '77 that was the only post season option). And you likely only had two games available on any given Saturday. You mostly listen to the games on the radio.
They're big, gigantic guys inside. Very similar to Alabama’s defensive line.
Our 2014 version rushed for 280 yards against the actual Alabama defensive line. (And OK is 112th against the pass, (296 yards allowed) out of 128!)
Excellent, Now just go into the big house and Beat Michigan!
He may have thrown his players under the bus, but that doesn't mean he is wrong.
Boomer Sooner ain't going to like the Boom that's coming their way
I seem to remember some success with a WR throwing for a TD a couple years back....
Only 6 points surrendered by the D. 7 of that total are on JT.
(seems I type slow....)
Pass Yards Allowed - 296.5/gm - good for 112th out of 128.
Calling Zone 6!!
A Hokie W would make this Bristol experiment worthwhile. Can you imagine buying a ticket to sit a half mile away from the field.
more of a threat than Bowling Green.
Which may be true, but thats like $0.50 is more than a quarter, ............ still won't buy you a darn thing.
I'll hope that our D can stop 2 of those drives and force FG tries - leaving them at 20 or less.
These stripes, Prison or Pajama?
YEP - Everything I've read about Tulsa focuses on the offensive side of the ball - and it would be good if they test our D more than the Falcon's did. But I've seen nothing that has me thinking they have the chops to slow us down when JT and the Buckeye's have the ball.
Yes - Les isn't going to take a demotion to coordinator anyway. There are plenty of schools that would give him another HC opportunity.
Can't wait for Saturday!!
Back in the day, living in NE Ohio, you could only listen to the Buckeyes on the radio for most of their games. I believe there was a 2 game limit on annual tv appearances (not counting a bowl game). And literally the only bowl game for the Buckeyes and Big10 was the Rose, so it was win or stay home.. I don't have any recollection of '68, but I knew by '74 that I only wanted to go to school at Ohio State so I could watch as many Buckeye games as possible. Got there in '78, Woody's last year, Art's first. There's nothing quite like a fall Saturday in the Shoe!
Washington is ranked 14 (AP) and 18 (Coaches) and has been a trendy pick to win the Pac-12 - and traveling to the West Coast has often been a handicap for eastern teams.
The Rainbow Warriors flew to Sydney almost a week before the game, but your point is still valid - It's 15,000 miles from Sydney to Ann Arbor - that's going to have an effect. Plus Cal doesn't play D like they will see on Saturday.
