This is a joke, right? Conley had a fantastic year. Opposing QBs had a rating of 19 when throwing his way. 19!!!! 3 completions allowed on targets more than 10 yards down field, 3 INTs, and a pretty highly ranked guy by most NFL scouts. I'm not sure what Conley you watched that needs another year of college...
We have arguably the best tackle in the nation headlining our recruiting class with Josh Myers, I don't see him moving inside unless its just to get him on the field early
Curtis is only Buckeye in History to my knowledge with a TD run and TD rec over 70 yards each.
I believe you are correct. Ted Ginn got close with a 68 yard TD run against ND in the Fiesta Bowl
So because he didn't live up to the insane expectations the fans put on him as a true freshman, he's a me first guy? That's one hell of a jump man, and an absurd one at that. If Urban any HINT of a me first attitude from Dontre (and Meyer has a much better grasp on that time of thing than any of us do), he'd be sitting firmly on the bench. Too much talent on this team
I'm not sure how you can gather a player isn't team first from a muffed punt....
Marshall muffed several punts his first year back there, and fumbled a number of times from the WR position. Was he a me first guy too?
I think one Nickelback is enough....
To be fair, he's usually catching the ball with a TON of space (you don't get that on offense) and the guys trying to tackle him typically haven't played defense since high school
It was also highly doubtful Michigan was going to lose to MSU last year punting with 10 seconds left, but that game kept us out of the B1G championship
People knock Marshall's punt returning, but its as if everyone only thinks about his RS Freshman year and forgets he was one of the best punt returners in the nation as a RS Soph. He had 0 fumbled punts as a Sophomore, and was like 7th in the nation in average yards per return. There was nothing sketchy about having Marshall back deep last year
Really? A 21 point win at OU, who is twice as talented as PSU, leads you to believe PSU will keep it within 14?
Well Kurt Coleman is the starting safety on the super bowl runner ups (and should've been a pro bowler last year) and Will Allen played in the NFL for 13 years or so. So both of those are pretty reasonable claims to DBU
Arguably our best recruiting assistant coach and the guys who has put 5 receivers in the NFL in the last 3 years?
Not all of these kids families are financially stable. If a parent is living paycheck to paycheck they wouldn't be able to afford to go watch their son compete for a national championship.
Technically nobody is forcing them to go to the game, but the less well-off families are being forced to choose between potentially putting food on the table or watching their son attempt to make history in person. And that is not right for an organization with as much money as the NCAA
You could make the argument our rushing attack is the strength. Our 3 leading rushers are all averaging over 6.5 YPC that are all on pace to push the 1000 yard mark, and as a team we are at 320 YPG
Yes, it was the 5th game of the year, but prior to this game JT had thrown for nearly 900 yards and 14 TDs through 4 games. Not exactly "alarming" numbers. If lack of pass production had been a trend all season it would be alarming, but it was one game. We have seen first hand JT carve up a defense with his arm (see MSU 2014, BGSU, RU...), I'm not worried
There was a lot more to that loss than our passing game. The weather, for one. Zeke spent half that week in the hospital, and only touched the ball twice in the second half. And above all, play calling.
Point being, we opened the playbook against MSU when they challenged our passing game and we torched them. The weather and maybe some other reasons we may never know caused us to close the playbook down to JT run left, JT run right, and JT run middle. If we let JT throw, there won't be problems come Saturday in my opinion
Buckeye Jack is that you?
If he felt it with Samuel, he needed to let that first deep ball go about 10 yards earlier
that didn't work out so well for MSU in 2014 against our freshman QB and less than stellar passing game
What are TPs QB stats? Or is WR stats for that matter, as I noticed you didn't mention him yet have guys like Braxton, Devin, and Jalin ahead of him
Zeke round 1, Hyde round 2 (he was not considered a first round back in the preseason by most accounts), and in my league Brady made it to round 6 before getting picked due to the suspension
