One game does not define a coach. Urban is undefeated against TTUN and has a national championship under his belt in 5 years. It isn't possible to go undefeated every year and his teams have gotten unlucky the last two years of losing to the wrong team at the wrong time in the Big 10. I have a feeling we are going to se something special this year.
I have defended Thad in previous posts but nothing can defend that......total lack of effort and no urgency.
It's sad that fans have resorted to root for an opponent when this team still has things to play for. Never will I root against Ohio State in ANY situation. GO BUCKS!!!!
Allow the downvotes to come if they must but I really believe Thad deserves another year. He built this program to what it is and lofty expectations of this program are a direct result of what he created. I am in complete agreement that there needs to be some shakeup with the staff but Thad should be able to have a chance to salvage this. This team dealt with a good amount of adversity and I think the KBD injury has been significantly downplayed. If we had his 10 or so points a game and his defense I think the outcome this season would have been drastically different not to mention the unfortunate health issues that struck team family members this season which no other team to my knowledge had to deal with.
The lineup change later in the year seemed to energize the team and both CJ and Wesson showed significant improvement as the year went on.
No way you can pin this loss on Marc but the dude plays with no sense of urgency on defense. Constantly looks lax and gets beat....
I can't agree more with this. What the hell is the point of college basketball if they don't review plays like this? And then they review a continuation call instead? I know the call on Melo didn't really impact the game at that time but good lord.....
God that was a needed win. Great play by CJ to find Loving!!! We really gotta stop with the first half turnovers....
I work in Columbia, SC and have to hear all the time how good the SEC is year after year. My response to gamecock fans is that the SEC east is a dumpster fire and South Carolina hasn't been relevant since Spurrier was there. That curbs their enthusiasm quite well.
I understand the point you make but not sure about your examples. Samuel was hurt for a decent amount in 2015 and playing behind the best running back in the NFL right now. Powell was a two year starter before his last junior season and had a good season by all accounts in 2014. UFM did play a good amount of talented freshman this season and I hope to see the trend continue. It's gonna be hard to keep this talented 2017 class off the field. I'm specifically hoping Grimes can recover from his injury quickly and get some quality playing time on the outside. Dudes gonna be a stud.
I can't agree more with this comment. The fact that he practically gave us a score with his whining antics really cost him in the game too but I'm sure he'd be quick to dismiss that as "bad officiating". What a doucheturd....
I'm not sure if the committee takes this into account but we also had to play in two consecutive hostile environments after they BOTH had a bye week. That extra week of preparation really helped both teams IMO.
This was just an unbelievable win..... snatching an OT win fro* TTUN feels sooooooo *uch *ore satisfying along with what was taken fro* the* in defeat!!! Curtis is a fucking BOSS!!!
Here's to a perfect record for OHIO STATE against this turd
DEFENSE wins championships!!!!! They really couldn't have played much better. Defense definitely carried the team today with the offense out of sorts. Just ABSOLUTELY......FUCKING......INCREDIBLE!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!
I don't know how confident *ichigan feels after yet another lackluster home win.
Defense wins championships. (See Ohio State 2002-2003) in my mind the defense has carried this team when they've needed it. Huge turnovers and a massive play on a 2 point conversion. Enjoy the ride guys!
So much for Ohio State being "beatable" lol. Keep giving our team motivation opposing teams!!
Mclaurin came up with a HUGE and very difficult TD catch for us early. He got smoked by a Nebraska defender after he beat his man badly when things started to break down for JT in the pocket. Great catch in traffic and good ability to hold on to the ball.
If they can win enough games to be bowl eligible they might have a shot. (Sarcasm)
Ole miss would have to qualify for a bowl first :)
This defense is championship caliber forcing TOs when we need them and dline stepping up to make plays in the red zone. Love this team!!!!! GO BUCKS!!!!!
Good to see Noah Brown make another brilliant TD catch when we needed him! God damn that was awesome.
Johnston is a beast just an unbelievable job of flipping the field. The incredible kick returns should not be understated that was a huge momentum swing to end the first half.
This should not be on Barrett the oline NEEDS to pass protect better (got beat many times when the Hoosiers only brought 3 or 4) and the pick in the second half was not his fault. Wide receivers have got to make plays and catch balls thrown with some zip. He can't do it all himself....
