Wisconsin's O-line are fat slobs. They couldn't deal with Ohio State's athletic D-line. Urban would never have O-linemen that looked like that.
Ohio State has no problem at the QB position for the next 5 years.
The 2013 class, Urban's first real recruiting class. He only had about 2 months to work on the 2012 class.
Add to that IMO, the best punter in the country is a member of the 2013 class....ALSO.
Sophomore Michael Thomas
Sophomore Pat Elflein
Freshman Raekwon McMillan
Freshman Curtis Samuel
The interim AD said, "There will no longer be such a thing as a "Michigan Man".
No program in the country can give an assistant coach a 5 year contract worth $1.7 Million/year
The Quarterback whisperer.
Cardale has more riding on the next 2 games than anyone else in an Ohio State Uniform. If he looks good, Cardale won't have to "play school" no more. If he doesn't play well against Bama, it's back to being a 3rd string QB at Ohio State.
Comparing Wisconsin with Alabama?????
I'm just glad Cooper won't be in an Alabama uniform next year.
CAN NOT stop cooper with man coverage. Can't afford to put 2 DBs on Cooper on every play. The best way to slow down Cooper is to confuse the QB on what the coverage is and put a BIG TIME rush on the QB with just 4 D-lineman on EVERY play. Ohio State's D-line is THE key to keeping this a close game into the 4th quarter giving Ohio State a shot to score last and win. Ohio State CAN NOT afford to get down by 2 TDs.
ALSO, it is preferable that the Ohio State offense has mistake free long drives. Instead of the the long pass play jump ball offense of the Wisconsin game. Allowing the D-line to be well rested between series.
We can't beat Bama their 10 against our 9.
BAD #2 choice. If you let Cooper get all of the touches he can he will score several TDs. His YAC is unmatched.
With more speed and a better route runner
BTW...attention DB'S, I notice Cooper wears a brace on his left knew, very unusual for a WR. Tackle that leg and roll.
He weighs 20 pounds more than any Ohio State DB, he reminds me of David Boston with more speed and a better route runner.
Ohio State CAN NOT duplicate the defense played against Wisconsin. Wisconsin wants to run the ball 80% of the time and has a horrible QB. Neither of those is what Alabama is about.
Warriner to Head Coach? Not at a Div1 program. Needs experience as an offensive coordinator. COoffensive coordinator Title is just to get him more money.
SURELY YOU JEST!! A player recruited to win a National Championship, flipping to a program who's current hope is to go 7-6 and make a nowhere/nothing Bowl game?
Warriner is an expert/best in the country O-line coach, but brings very little to the table as the man at the wheel of a spread offense.
Tebow has not coached a day in his life.
12/30/14 thru 1/31/15 = Contact Period. EXCEPT 12/21/14 = Quiet Period, 12/22/14 thru 1/3/15 = Dead Period
Even if currently there's a dead period for recruiting players there is no "dead period" regarding recruiting coaches. The FIRST thing Herman has to get done. I would assume Urban would allow him time to do that. He might take a couple of Ohio State grad assistants with him.
I'm sure Urban keeps an updated list of all potential assistants. His coaching tree is growing. He put together a damn good staff in a short period of time when he came to Ohio State.
ZERO chance of any on that list.
Marshal never completed more than 40% of his passes in high school.
