I think everyone needs to cool their jets BIG TIME on this one. First of all, I love Herman, I think he's a great OC and QB coach. That being said... The man has never coached a football team. Ever. This is ohio state. We will find the best coach available in America and hire him when we need to. Just because he coached under urban for 3 years does not automatically put him into that category of elites . Two, Herman's ties are in Texas, not ohio. He has spent much more time in Texas coaching and recruiting then he did in Ohio. The chances that urban is gone by the time Herman is deemed elite (if he ever gets to that level) is very unlikely. If Herman is as good as were making him out to be he'll be gone in 3 years from Houston, and on to coach one of the Big 12 schools. I doubt urban will be gone that quickly.
Id be taking the over at 9.5 on MSU all day long
For the record I agree with what you're saying as far as the best fit for the offense... The way JT distributed the ball was much better for a balanced offense then the more read option oriented spread we ran with Braxton. But a huge part of that is who JT had to throw to . Jalin Marshall and Michael Thomas were both sitting on the bench when Braxton was in.
Braxton's passing percentage junior year was 63.5 compared to JTs 64.6.... Extremely close and probably every bit as impressive when you consider the players around him. Every year Braxton has started, his completion percentage has gone up by almost 5%. He has improved every year and was already close to JT as far as efficiency. Why wouldn't I think that with 2 more springs under his belt and an entire extra year of only watching film that he would improve even more?
You can definitely learn how to read a defense and how to keep your eyes downfield in the pocket.
When healthy He has almost as strong of an an arm as cardale. And JTs decision making can be taught. That's my whole point.
My point is Braxton has physical gifts that the other two can't touch. Everything else can be taught by the best QB guru in America who also happens to be the HFC . But I agree about his health. I just think from what we've heard it sounds like he'll be ready
There will be no QBgeddon. Brax will be the starter. They've now had 5 years to work on Braxton's progressions and reads, and he already had a big arm. You can't teach JT or Cardale to run a 4.4 forty or break 11 defenders ankles on one play.
Lol.... I've seen cardale in a black new SUV Benz... It happens .
I hate to say it but it definitely happens. No denying it.
I hear what you're saying, and I can't say I know this exact case for certain. But things definitely happen.
They are truly the scum of the earth
If this was an SEC player everyone on this board would be talking about how players get paid in the south
Is he really a point guard at 6"7? That's crazy. Kid is one hell of a passer and has nice inside game. Will he be a freshman next year or the year after?
Lol I was just about to start a thread like this. It seems like the season is starting to get close. I've been doing everything I can to get my football fix.... Watched 2-3 full games from last season this week... And I don't mean osu games... Because I've already seen all of them more times than I can count. Starting to get excited!'
Seems like a trend in D tackle recruiting... Early on we were supposedly the favorite for Hand and Settle as well and down the line they just lost interest. Gary is a great talent and while I usually hate when people make this excuse were really going to be fine on the D line. We might already have the best DE group in America and were adding bosa. Just find a good tackle and it's the best D line hall in the country (although Georgia's is outstanding as well)
I saw it last week and it is easily one of the best sequels of any classic movie ever made. If you never saw the original movie, it would be a pretty decent film on it's own, but the references and throw backs to the first movie were a real treat. I would definitively recommend it.
Just my opinion here but I think Cardale has the least chance to start. I get that we won a championship WITH him but ezekiel Elliot won us those games. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE cardale jones, I'll be rooting for him to succeed and he's a great story. But he turns the ball over the most, he's the least athletic, and the least built for our offense. There's a reason Urban offered the other two QBs and not dale. I also think JT and Braxton are extremely hard workers . I've got healthy Braxton 1 JT 2 Dale3 But that's just my #take.
Hands down no comparison.... Urban in bowls 8-2 ... Saban 8-8.... Urban 3 championships in 14 years as coach and .845 overall win percentage (highest active)... Saban 4 in 20 years with .754 percentage... People who think saban is still the best coach are delusional. Urban will finish with atleast 4 championships and most likely more.
It is notre dame so 4-5 is probably more realistic lol
Yup.... We were the last school to get screwed over. After our mishap everyone got off easy and all of a sudden the story changed to how athletes need to be paid. Miami did things 100x worse then us and got basically the same punishment.
It's absolutely ridiculous how they've banned TP. Kid did absolutely nothing morally wrong. Do you see Texas AM trying to seperate themselves from manziel (who did much worse than Pryor) or Georgia doing it to Gurley? Welcome this kid back and celebrate all he gave to this university. We would still be known as the team that can't win the big bowl game if it weren't for Pryor. I felt the same way about tress for awhile.,, absolutely love both of them. Glad they have done a few things to welcome tress back but it's time to do the same with TP.
They will have to be really really good to get in the playoff. Look at the schedule.... Texas, USC, Stanford, Virginia, Georgia Tech, Navy and Clemson all have a shot at beating them. I see them losing atleast 2 of those games
Very cool article.... Sounds like a lot of those guys have done very well for themselves off the field.
You are right about the cavs purposely playing slow but I guess my point is that when you take out lebron there is no one who can create their own offense and become the focus of the defense. Now kyrie can obviously do this but behind him we don't have a lot of options. Wade can come in when lebron or kyrie comes out and handle the ball and facilitate the offense. I'm not sure we lose the finals if we have wade this past year
