Let us remember that this was against Kent State and he went something around 9-29 with 3 ints against VT. He is good but it is a bit early to say he is better at throwing right now than Miller who has a stronger arm and has shown the ability against good defenses. I will agree that he is definitely further along than Miller was at this point in his career with his poise on progressions and passing accuracy, but don't forget that Miller never got a redshirt season to learn from and he was thrown in a chaotic situation with 2 different coaches in his first two seasons.

Also don't forget that Miller's ability to run and make something out of nothing on broken plays is very absent with him gone. Hell I almost thought Cardale looked better on the option than Barnett. That isn't a knock on Barnett, just pointing out that Miller is substantially better than Barnett in multiple categories; I still think Barnett will take over the job when Miller leaves. However, I think if Miller  does come back fully healthy, he is taking the job back.

I don't think it is possible for them to play as poorly as they did offensively against VT in this game, or have so many chance events go against them. I am a bit worried about the secondary given how great Kiel looked, but at the same time I'm confident the offense will play well enough to win by 7-17 points.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

I loved how much more efficient they looked in everything they did today, but I do wish Wilson would get more touches, He was great against Navy and had an unbelievable catch against VT, yet he only got two touches today. I know he didn't run well against VT, but he wasn't given the opportunity to from the blocking. I'd like to see him get at least 8-10 touches every game.

You missed my point. What do you think I am? I already self admitted that I am a very lazy person. My GPA score is nothing special, I don't study, I have failed a class(an honors class, because of a missed 10 page paper), have trouble focusing on busy work, etc. I can tell you though it annoys me when people act like I must have gotten a lower score because I don't like those types of test, when really I have scored 99% multiple times, though I put little value in that fact towards how capable I actually am. However, trust me when I say getting As in classes like AP Physics and AP Chemistry that are almost solely test based(I know because that is how I passed with As in those types of classes without doing much homework), is FAR more valuable than getting a 33 or whatever on a general skills test that is basically giving you a bunch of non specific random questions, that almost totally rely on speed and how far you have gone with your classes.

The whole concept of standardized testing is pretty stupid(not to say there isn't value there, but I don't like the shift in usage that has happened), especially now that they are doing it at the lower level and forcing pointless numberline systems that have to be memorized in order to preform on the math sections, but I don't want to get in an argument about that.

I looked up the ASVAB and it has been shown to correlate extremely highly .95+ with reading ability.  The ASVAB is more or less a measure of literacy. It doesn't seem very relevant, I was merely trying to give my point of view on what the kid asking had already done, considering I am doing the same things right now. GPA obviously reflects work ethic, but it also reflects understanding of courses that often provide a more realistic setting to the skills you will need in college and beyond, though even it is still very very loosely reflected. However I think it is every bit as legitimate as the test, it measures ability/potential as well as work ethic, and as I have already pointed out there are many flaws in those tests and getting a bad score is nothing to worry about, especially given how many other indicators of ability college's will look at.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

ACT score is heavily overvalued and biased towards speed. It really is nothing more than a random school information test. Good GPA is in my opinion just as good if not a superior indicator of ability, plus things like community service and other after school programs will boost your value. It may devalue your ability to get some scholarships, but with those factors + a good essay on your application and an alumni father will help you a lot.

Trust me though, don't feel bad about a 25. I got a 27 which isn't much higher and I take all AP classes. The ACT is nothing more than general school knowledge, and is horribly biased towards speed(even more so than the SAT), I had to guess for about 1/3 of the test because of time constraints. I know this because I got a near perfect 99% score on the P-ACT which is a very shortened version of the actual test(that I still couldn't finish). I graduate the same year and have gotten interest from tOSU in both email/mail, my ACT score isn't much higher, I haven't done any program fully other than community service, and my 3+ gpa is nothing special though it has come from very hard classes(which I didn't put enough effort in). If someone as lazy as me, who doesn't have an incredible record of accomplishments can get interest, I'm sure you can easily if you put effort in to it.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

I don't know, in my opinion without the long injury and early commit Mitchell would have gotten a much higher ranking. He is a FAR better passer than Ahmad, Bragg most likely is going to Kansas or Kentucky so he isn't really the relevant in this comparison. Mitchell wasn't a raw athlete; he had great ball handling skills, court vision, and ability to finish at the rim to go along with athleticism. With his athleticism I'm sure Matta would have turned him in to an excellent defender as well. Sure he didn't have the greatest shooting touch yet, but he had the potential to be a triple-double capable point forward type in college, and with all the shooting they have brought in recently I would rather have him over Ahmad.

Now that isn't to say I don't like Ahmad, because I do quite a bit. However I don't agree with the notion that this is more positive than negative for OSU as I think Mitchell had the most potential of that group, and we don't know whether more openings would have come about after this next season anyways(nor do we know for sure those three would all sign with OSU). I do agree that tOSU will be fine though, they will have plenty of talent in the 2016 class, and they already have a ton of young talent on the team right now.

Comment 12 Aug 2014

I've heard from a lot of Bama fans that Lindsay was actually the better Center on that line. Run game(ypc) apparently improved while he was starting, he is a hardnosed strong blocker, and he knew the Bama offense well so hopefully that means he is good at picking up playbooks. I've heard Bama was thinking about moving their starting C over and having Lindsay start, it shouldn't be made out as if he had to leave because he couldn't play there. I hope he learns the playbook quickly, I'm rooting for him to start.

"by far, Dontre’s the No. 1 spot."......."He's the staring H at Ohio State"

I think Dontre is going to take the wide majority of the snaps at H, given the history of how much Urban's past starters there were used and what Urban has said about Dontre's improvement(been very praising of it).

Comment 09 Aug 2014

Only if you consider Philly Brown not to have been starting last season - H-B sees enough snaps that it is definitely starting, especially considering many of Urban's best non-RB/QB offensive players have played at the position(Harvin, Brown, etc.)

Comment 09 Aug 2014

Well technically Salt Waters use ocean currents to cross large expanses of open sea, so they are capable of existing in areas of deep water. I'm not that knowledgeable on Great White territory though I assume there would be little to no overlap, but it isn't impossible.

Comment 09 Aug 2014

Yeah, that is one of the few pieces they are really missing right now. You never know what could happen, they have 2 first round picks still in 15 so it could also come through a draft that is supposed to have strong PF/C talent. Trade could also be a possibility.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

Are we ever going to see that killer TE option Urban ran with Aaron Hernandez at Florida? Heuerman is athletic and powerful enough that I think he could be effective on with these type of plays, and it would add another wrinkle that can get three weapons moving in space(QB+RB+TE).

Comment 06 Aug 2014

Brutus is actually one of the biggest crocs ever measured, and this was a bullshark(freshwater) that was out of its league size wise. It is pretty incredible to see how dominant some of the large salt water crocs can be though, it takes something very powerful to eat a shark. I'd be intrigued to see what would happen if a salt water and a great white met, but their territories are so different and the nature of their survival(apex predators would rather avoid a fight with something that large, as one injury can mean death by starvation/infection) means it will probably never happen.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

lol that isn't happening and like the guy before me said is some made up number that was referring to the spring game. The fact is that Urban has never had an offense pass more than run(look it up on CF reference), and his best offenses consistently averaged 8-20 more run plays than pass plays. 

I don't get why people always harp against Urban's system, It would be incredibly stupid to go away from a system that has created some of the best offenses in recent years, and helped win a title and dominate a conference known for NFL talent on defense.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I like the comparison to the comparison of a serge ibaka type raw shot blocker/athlete at the college level. Oden had more size, strength, and offensive skill. he was a player that dominated the boards and could dominate defenders by backing them down then overpowering them. On top of that he was an incredible defender, I don't think Giddens is close to that overall package right now or really that similar of a player.

Not true, Ebola doesn't transmit through air(only through body fluids) or survive well outside of the body. So it is highly unlikely that it is present at all in Columbus, which would take somebody who is infected coming in to the city. So the title is completely fine.
