Maybe the coaches show Virginia tech beating osu on repeat, or a mash up of so called analysts talking trash about osu. Nothing like some extra motivation while working out.
You seem surprised that fans of a team/program are bias. Sometimes it maybe a waste of effort if you are going to try to win a debate like the one you are referring to.
I wouldn't mind seeing it but if it were to happen, I find a hard time believing that urban would run that style more than a few plays at random or strategic moments. What I gather from urban, he likes to show many different styles and options even for just a few plays a year to make defenses prepare and give the defensive coordinators a hard time sleeping at nights. So if zeke, Samuel, marshal, etc, etc, etc, has a big play and needs a quick rest for a play or two, maybe slip in the 3QB package for a play or two before going back to their normal offense. Example would be how they used Jalin in the shotgun a few times.
Also I agree with you about the backing for braxton but a big part of Braxton's games is his running ability. If he is medically eligible to play, then I would think it would be expected that he could and will run with ball which I think is more of a injury risk than blocking. However, a pkay could be designed where he was a decoy or something.
While you make some valid points, sometimes comments and threads such as this one, are about poking fun at the rival even if they are hypocritical. Every program has its issues and everybody knows that. The beauty of fan bases are that the fanatics are typically bias for the teams they root for, hence the hypocrisy.
Right around the 7 minute mark, nick does the "shrug".
I have a pair. I ordered asap when they first came out. They are solid. I have no issues with them.
There is a video out there that is hard to find but its a team that won a game using 3 qb's at one time. It was a lot of option but it worked. They took turns playing QB and anytime they exchanged a pitch or handoff, you never knew if was going to be a run or throw. It was a lower division school that tried it.
Whatever formula keeps the Buckeye train at full steam with wins, I'm all for it!
I bet TP really regrets his last years at osu. If tat gate never happened, he was planning to play his sr year at osu. Who knows if one more year in college would have helped his NFL career at all but we will never know and that will be nagging at him for the rest of his life.
Who is this Jen Hairball you speak of?
Yeah, if you look at each season since Urb's took over, he plays a lot of younger guys early in the season then more of the veterans when the conference games roll around. Then it seems he brings the younger guys back out during the bowl games.
Lol, that was the first thing I noticed as well. And that's the reason I always find myself hesitating when about to handshake somebody.......
Yeah I think the motivational part comes in during practice if the coaches see the players getting complacent. They can "wake" them up and refocus them by these the bulletin board material. As combs said before, you win championships in the off season. I think Osu showed that easily as they seemed very well in shape and not tired at all. I see that more and more when replaying the games. And I see the opposing teams tired and worn down, not sure if it's the long season or how they differ in conditioning and drills. Osu looked liked they could have played another game a week later but Bama and the quacks looked like they were spent.
As always, great info!!!
Why does it even matter? They are/were great B ball players. It's hypothetical and opinion based.
Avoid complacency and don't ever assume you don't need to practice hard for western Michigan, or a Purdue, etc.
All this uproar over bunny ears?? People are ready to get mad over anything......smh
I can see both sides. It could be any easy excuse, just something to say cause they lost. Or he could be telling the truth. But it's hard to believe that Saban and the other coaches would allow the team to not practice hard.
Even if they didn't practice hard. What does that even mean? How much harder would they have practice if they thought they were playing a tough team? They already had a loss on the year so they should have had a vulnerable feeling. It's usually the undefeated teams that start to feel invulnerable. Anyhoo, that's why we play the game as they say.
Amen, Seattle!! Right through the heart of the south!
Not going to lie, I sat down on the couch when Bama went up 21 to 6 and was thinking about prepping myself for depression. The. On osu's next drive and score, it put a little more hope in me.
Then felt better going into halftime thinking the game was basically starting over with the score 21 to 20.
Before I know it, I was back on cloud 9 a few minutes into the third qtr watching devin smith walk into the end zone from that bomb thrown by the king!
an amazing game for sure. Will go down in history.
Make a stop in milwaukee to get me and I will pick up the tab to everyone's dinner!
Hopefully today will became one of my greatest memories. Sorry but I'm too excited to think of the past.
There are also rumors that not only will they 2-peat, but could 3-peat, 4-peat, and possibly 5-peat.
Definitely looking forward to see if these rumors come true!
As OSU gets more success this season, be aware that the haters are going to hate even more.
