Ha the only time I lay eyes on any "Power Ranking" ESPN throws out, is when it happens to get posted here. Georgia at 4 with 1 Loss above FSU, Oregon is just laughable and shows how hard they are stumping for their baby!
Is Virginia tech still a "damn good" football team?
We are just going to have to accept that the middle to bottom of the B1G is just not salvageable. This league is going to be Top heavy. Indiana, Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue, etc are just going to continue to be a drain on the B1G in football. All We can really hope is that Michigan, Penn State, and Nebraska continue to build their programs back to the state that they were because the lower half just won't ever get there.
I would rather try to get drunk by drinking water directly from the Scioto or Olentangy Rivers than drink Bud Light, but that's just one mans opinion!
I'm not saying he hasn't been productive, just that he doesn't look like he could hit a HR every time he touches the ball. Back as a punt returner you would think that would be a chance for him to really shine, but it just hasn't been there.
Maybe it's just me, but Dontre just doesn't look as "electric" as he did last year. Maybe the weight gain, maybe just how he's being used, who knows.
Maybe its the location then. I've been going to the one in Powell and the meat is bone dry every time I am in there. Maybe it's just my bad luck.
But like you said, you're old, he's not. He's young and has his whole life in front of him. I'm pretty sure no NFL team is going to hold it against him that he went to a strip club and got his picture taken with a Porn Star!
Yes it appears to be City BBQ, although that joint has gone way down hill the last few years.
Yeah it's only the first quarter, but I'm waiting for all those "VT is a damn good team" people to correct their statements.
Really??? If any other shitty thing is going to happen to this team, just get it all out now. If I have to go through a whole season with my eyes over my shoulder waiting for the next shoe to drop I won make it!
If you had the opportunity to say anything to the coaching staff this week...what would you say?
Throw a slant pass or crossing route into the game plan. 4 Verticals only works in Madden! Find a route for the TE's.
I agree, but I expect a lot of people will fall back on the Braxton got hurt line (at least for any offensive disappointment's this year). I really expected so much from this offense. This year is just proving that Braxton/Hyde masked a lot of the deficiencies in Herman's overall scheme.
There's only so much you can hear things like, "It needs to happen, and it will."
This times 100. Some of the coach speak is starting to get tiresome. We need to get players in space, utilize or speed, etc etc. JUST DO IT ALREADY!!!!
Losing to MSU, Clemson, and VT in 3 of your last 4 games will most definitely take the bloom off the rose. I'm with Urban to the end, but he needs to get this team ready for Penn State and Sparty on the road. Win those 2 and I'll sleep a lot better at night. A win over Kent State is not going to calm the natives.
I thought the same thing. I'm no expert on o-line play, but good lord at some point you think he would at least get a shot! Unless they figure they might as well get all the experience they can for the guys that will be here manning the o-line next year.
The Big 10 was already thought pretty low of, not sure how much more we can sink in the media's eyes.
Oh I agree 100% Also apparently I fell for the whole our TE's our great! This is the year we utilize them hook, line, and sinker again this year!
We scored a TD on a slant. I'm just saying.
While expectations may be high, is it really ridiculous to have high expectations. It's not like we are trotting out 1 and 2 star players here coached by a team of coaches making high school pay. We have 4 and 5 star talent coached by some of the best coaches in college football. It is not wrong of anyone to at least expect that we can show up and beat a Virgina Tech team that was supposed to be "young" too. I can be as patient as the next guy with our team, but when some problems (mainly the D) have been present for the past 3 years, it's not out of line to get completely frustrated with the lack of progress.
And he showed the maturity not to drive the ball carrier down when he got out of bounds. I saw a lot from Kwon in that one play. He should be starting from here on out. We have absolutely zero reason not to be playing him full time.
Ohio State AP Rankings by week in 2002. 13, 10, 8, 6, 6, 6, 5, 5, 4, 4, 6, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1. So we are still ahead of schedule!!
The sporting world will cease operating as we know it as soon as Dr. Andrews retires! Who's going to do all those surgeries??
While I agree on Mike Thomas needing to show something, I say it's because he's supposed to have shown us something since the Spring Game his freshman year when he blew up! He didn't show us anything his freshman year and then got red-shirted last year.
I stopped reading National projections and breakdowns for Ohio State the minute Braxton went down. At this point I would rather wait and actually watch the Bucks play actual games and judge for myself how this season is going to play out. Anyone in the media right now is just purely speculating at this point. Lets see J.T. and company play first, then we can start forecasting the rest of the season.
