I think we may start slower than normal due to bye week rust which will give Rutgers some hope until mid third quarter. Still, Bucks 42 -21.

Comment 15 Oct 2014

Looks to me like Marshall is a little stronger and Wilson is prone to dance hoping to break a long return. Generally I defer to the coaches because they know who practices best and who holds on to the ball under pressure.

Have to say here that my pet peeve with punt returners is that many times they will give up 10 yards of field position by spending precious time scoping the field and dancing around. The thing I loved about Ginn was that most of the time saw where the fewest opposing jerseys were and took of as fast as he could in that direction.

If you were forced to guess at gunpoint now, how might you see the 2015 recruiting classes for each B1G team placing nationally?

Comment 14 Oct 2014

The question was not worded like you seem to think, "Ohio State as having a little chance in this upcoming game". The question asked was how CONFIDENT you are that the Bucks beat MSU, with only three choices. Numerically the choices could mean 0 to 3 none to a little confident, 4-7 somewhat confident, or 8-10 very confident. I voted "A LITTLE".

You can't characterize those who haven't seen enough of this young team against a good opponent as irrationally negative. Quite honestly I think it is too early to judge the quality of both these football teams.

Holy crap that was a horrible call on Tommy Schutt. Fully within a 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock block. Everyone of us has seen really flagrant blocks from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock just ignored on each and every Saturday.

It's not just the deep balls, Cincinnati just found that deep ball was working and exploited that. Other opposing offenses will attack with whatever works including slants, bubble screens, tight ends. So far it looks like something is amiss with the pass defense as a whole, and it's more than just youthful d-backs.

Be interesting to see next week we fare with another solid passing team, and if we are able to control Stefon Diggs.

The thing you had to like about Bear's short speech was that it wasn't "ideology" but rather a basic TRUTH of playing a sport and the principle has been proven true over time. It is the foundation of the "upset".

Comment 18 Sep 2014

I heard the interview not what was written here. Urban had the chance to DIRECTLY answer a question about how Braxton was helping the young QBs, and instead said something else.

Urban is an honest guy and instead of coach speak such as "Braxton has helped these young guys and has been like another coach for us", he chose "I don't want to say struggling, but he want's to play so bad."

I don't think it's too much of a stretch to think that anyone who has been in school 4 years already, with a child to support, who most likely can't improve his draft stock very much unless he shows much, MUCH more than he has so far, would seriously be considering taking his chances as an "athlete" on a pro roster.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

The Braxton question to Urban was what Braxton was doing to help the young QBs. Urban never answered that question.

What he said could be construed by many to mean "Braxton is in a funk and is pretty much resigned himself to go pro after all his recent bad luck. He is taking advantage of all the facilities and benefits OSU offers in order to help him prepare and rehab his shoulder".

Comment 18 Sep 2014

JT will do just fine thank you.

However if he was a QB that was going to make us forget Joe G or Troy the coaches wouldn't be calling him a just "distributer".

Comment 16 Sep 2014

I would love to believe the O-line problem is behind us. In reality any good defensive team that can also apply pressure will be a problem for youngsters. They start to get confused about assignments, flustered at getting beat, and that starts affecting other players especially the leader of the offense, the QB.

I am just hoping these guys hold up until they can mesh later this season.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

Loved the Matt Millen (the hurtin' buckaroo) comment that last week's Buckeye loss was on the coaching staff for not anticipating and responding to what VT was doing to them.
 

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Exactly right as it's quite obvious that UM is enraged about their record in the series the last decade or so. Additionally they may come to town with some extra incentive since Hoke's job may be on the line (or perhaps they even fire him the week of the game).

Comment 10 Sep 2014

Ziegler's been doing something too long and I suspect it's hard drugs. He steadfastly maintains that Jerry Sandusky was a "chaste pedophile" and committed no sexual acts with his victims.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

Take a look at the situation. VT looked to be heading in the wrong direction the last several years. They had a young team this year and were expected to have another mediocre season. Now, with their schedule, they could very well win the ACC, right their ship in recruiting etc. and be in contention for a national playoff spot. "Potentially" a huge win for the program especially if the Buckeyes get their act together the rest of the year.

Perhaps not the biggest in their history, but some coaches get over excited about beating an historically great program.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Any team that can throw the football will be a problem for the Bucks because they can score more than we can. (I believe we can handle 99% of anyone's run game). Linebackers and D-backs are not all they should be in the passing game however.

Almost every facet of the game went wrong vs VT, I don't expect that will happen again. I wanted to stay positive so I voted for 2 more. @MSU and @ pick one.

They say that is what dumb people always say about smart people.
 

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Agree 100% with Samuel returning kicks. Don't know if coaches think Dontre has better hands but his decisions are poor. What makes successful kick returns is to make a quick decision on where to go and get there on a beeline (adjust as necessary). If nothing else you add 5 to 10 yards to field position.
