Kyrie plays and the defense is not nearly as good. Even when 100%, his defense is less than impressive.
The D can not "rest on their laurels", they must get better. They let Alabama score 35 points. That is unacceptable.
Where did Smith say anything about treating football players like "paid professionals"???
All he said is that he no longer calls them amateurs. There is not a term for what they are now or will become after the court's final decision. Which Gene Smith has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with. If the court rules that college athletes own the rights to their name and likeness, not the University. Then Gene Smith and other AD's MUST do as the courts say and come up with ways to help his athletes take advantage of the judges ruling.
If Baker doesn't redshirt he may never start a game in his career, playing behind Hilliard. Could he play safety? He's 6-2 205 and it's said his frame is "maxed out".

If you're a football player and graduate from Ohio State, there IS a job waiting for you in your profession in Columbus.
Rottweiler, you have not been paying attention to what has happened since Urban has come to Ohio State.
You think the player's attitude that was pervasive after a 6-7 season was a good thing for Urban when he arrived at Ohio State?
You think going 12-0 and not going to a bowl game was a good thing for Urban??
You think the Carlos Hyde and Bradley Robey simultaneous fiascoes ending in suspension for the 2 star starters were good for Urban???
Losing a close game to MSU and missing out on a possible BCS Title game was a good thing for Urban????
You think losing 1st Team All Big Ten Noah Spence before the season was a good thing for Urban????? You think losing Braxton a week before the season was a good thing for Urban?????? You think an embarrassing loss to VaTech at home was a good thing for Urban??????? You think losing starter Dontre Wilson to Injury was a good thing for Urban???????? You think losing Heisman candidate JT Barrett in the U of M game was a good thing for Urban????????? ALL IN ONE SEASON!
It IS NOT about money, he has more than he needs. It's about being happy. Which in this profession you CAN NOT buy with money.
You forget what Urban says. The QB in his offense is a product of the players around him. Thus the succss of all three QBs. Last year the offensive players by far were playing their best the last 3 games of the season. Thus Cardale's success
A great COLLEGE QB. He won't be a PRO anything else either.
His best chance for playing time is still at QB. Urban's favorite.
Cupp isn't one of the Top 15 Ohio recruits in the 2016 class.
The worst non-post player shooter in Matta's history. Some never become average shooters. There have been several at Ohio State of late. Craft, Thompson. and Scott. Do you think they worked hard on their shooting? I doubt he'll even get to their average level..
A small problem of a ,520 FT%, .158 3-point % and only .03 assists/game.
The WR position is the least of my concerns. I can't comprehend why it makes you nervous.
If Cardale doesn't win the QB derby it will be due to his seeking the spot light. If it is close he can't win it with this act. Think what Urban wants to see first and foremost from his QB,
You are a neophyte in sport if you don't know what "act like you've been there before" means. All head coaches of athletes want them to be disciplined in that sense.
Most people have this guy in their starting lineup at shooting guard or small forward. HOW? Free throw % of .520, 3-point % of .158, less than 0.5 assists per game. A black hole.
COACHING! COACHING! COACHING!
i liked Cadale A LOT better when only a few of us knew who he was. He has completely changed since becoming a national figure. Unlike Braxton and JT, who acted/act like they've been there before. .
YEP! EXACTLY!!. #1 through #5. Been saying that for 6 months.
ONLY athletes go to this school....more than just athletes go to Catholic schools. ONLY top tier athletes from around the entire country go to this school. It was created by IMG to get an inside head start on representing the top athletes in all sports.
I checked again,,,,I was a little light. It costs over $60,000/year.
This is not good.
I love twofers
