Not sure Heuerman's health has anything to do w Hubbard going to DE. It has more to do with losing our 1st and 2nd string defensive ends (Spence, Marcus) and finding the right fit for Hubbard. Recruited as an LB, moved to TE group, then back to LB now looks like he might be going to DE. Vannett and Baugh are more than capable of filling in for Heuerman regardless.
I hope you're not including the spring game in your generalization.
Nothing good happens after midnight
You guys should be routinely beating us in attendance. You can fit over 4,000 more people in your stadium.
Which poses the question: What is more painful? Making pizzas or going to a Michigan game? Brady Hoke is wondering if he can somehow do both
Typical Michigan... Living in the past. It's only a matter of time before Michigan will be paying people $42 to show up to the games
Turned it to the Minnesota TCU game. Another B1G embarrassment
tOSU just has to play to its potential, control what we can control, win every game we play and hope it all plays itself out. If we get in, that's badass. If we don't, it's our fault for losing to a Va Tech team that we should have beat and win our bowl game and carry that momentum into next season.
I think that ship has sailed. The best in the B1G had their chances the last 2 weekends to have a big win and whiffed
The recruits love those unis. So.. Take it with a grain of salt
I'm not sure I can handle Matt Millen and then Bert Bielema on my tv all in one afternoon
I hope Texas Tech does something similar to Bert and the Razorbacks
I'm not talking about Clemson. I was talking about MSU, Navy and Va Tech.
Tears of joy NutinPa. Tears of joy..
If Tennessee loses, they'll say "it doesn't matter because the crystal ball says we have a 14% chance at Torrance Gibson. #TGtoUT!!! @quick_TG6"
I'm not saying it never happened with Tressel. It did happen. But do you think Tressel would have allowed a middle of the pack young ACC team come into the shoe and throw us around like rag dolls? You name it happening pretty much once per year for 5 years. With Urban, it's happened 3 times in the last 5 games. At this rate, he'll have 3 or 4x the amount of games we were outplayed physically in a similar timespan. And that's what is alarming.
Urban needs to surpass Tressel before even being in the ballpark of Woody. If this young talent develops and we get a better offensive coordinator, Urban could lead us to some great things.
With Devin Gardner at nose guard, we might actually be able to give JT some time in the pocket
I think the main reason Tressel keeps getting brought up is because he's got the hardware. Urban doesn't have any hardware yet. And yet Buckeye Nation had anointed Urban next Woody Hayes before he even coached our first game because of his success with Florida. Jim Tressel had to earn every bit of respect the blue collar way... Results on the field and hardware. We've lost 3 of the last 4 huge games we've had under Urban. Michigan St. and Virginia Tech were more physical than us. Even Navy gave us fits physically. This might sound crazy but Ohioans take that personally and for this to happen as often as it has lately, it's not sitting too well. Va Tech and Sparty punched us right in the mouth and that wouldn't have happened with a Tressel team. Not to say he'd win but.. We certainly wouldn't go down like that.
I agree with you but everyone isnt acting like the sky is falling just because we lost. It's how we lost. We looked so incompetent and predictable on offense that it raised some serious concerns. Especially in this day and age where offenses are regularly erupting for 50 and 60 points. Think Auburn went to the title game last year bc of defense? Heck no. Our explosive offense bailed us out of a hell of a lot of games last year and this year it's like watching a high school team. And the sad thing is our defense is better this year
Barrett throws a great ball. He's got a nice touch. If he wasn't getting pressured/killed on every other play, he'd have some exceptional running stats and even more completions. Throw in some play calling that makes sense and less dropped passes and he is statistically a good QB. No complaints here for JT. Love his demeanor and leadership
I don't agree with your assessment of JT. To say he's not anywhere near as talented as Braxton or Pryor after only two games which have involved extremely disappointing play calling, 4 new offensive linemen, with one of those games being against a great defense, inconsistent WR play and him being a freshman who hasn't played since the fall of 2012 when he tore his ACL, is a slightly premature and unfair assessment.
I'm not worried about having too many. I just think it will be interesting to see how it plays out and how it affects our recruiting.
Well, Shazier and Roby were juniors last year. And it definitely hurt us having Braxton going down because the coaching staff was saying how he's improved on his leadership. So we haven't had a chance to see that. I agree with you generally but we are a very young team.
