They might not be smart enough to know this but the perfect coach for them has a 9-1 record against them.....
Lol we need to just have a page up at all times that tells people where to go and what to do for their first game days
WVU over Oklahoma take it to the bank. Love their wide outs
I think everyone's overreacting a little to the Toledo game. Based on what we did against kent state, Barrett could have put up just as big of numbers as Kiel did if we needed him to. Not saying they're not a good passing team, but they're not Texas AM. If we can keep them out of Rythym we will dominate this team
Rewatch the virginia tech game, and then last years Wisconsin game. Braxton excels with throwing the deep ball and JT just doesn't have that power. If I recall correctly atleast 2 of his INTs against VT were on deep balls that weren't even close. I will say though I think as far as decision making and intermediate throws, JT is light years ahead of where Braxton was as a sophomore and maybe even as good as he was as a junior. JT will be a very good qb here before he leaves
I'm split on this.... I'm kinda buying into the idea that we just weren't ready for that defense and that the offense can be dynamic. It will all depend on how the Oline holds up against a Michigan state or Wisconsin . If we can start running the ball with some authority, I think we will win out . If not, we could lose to more than 1 team. Also I think were gonna beat the snot out of cinci.
Now that he's escaped tho..... This seems like a job for one buckeye to redeem himself... Jeffrey dahmer
"De commitments.... Coverups... BBQ ... Donuts..." Laughing out loud in class hahaha good work sir
He deserves to star in a real life SAW movie
This class should have been our best in recent history... What unfortunate timing that last season was our worst in awhile. Shoulda got all three of those guys.
spaghetti and meatballs?? They atleast got burgers in the tressel days #fireourchef
Had the pleasure of scrimmaging against him in high school .... As a 170 lb right tackle. Kid was unblockable when he tried
I'm not saying that the game plan couldn't have significantly been improved, but to judge JT in his first real test as a redshirt freshman to a fifth year ( I believe) senior in Brantley is just not fair. And he is a much better runner than Brantley ever was. He's not the problem with the offense currently.
Just another ignorant thread.... I think people forget that this offensive line is the least experienced in the entire country.
If Braxton were healthy going into that game he wouldn't have been by the end of it. This offensive line does not deserve to have him as their quarterback. It will work out so much better for Braxton and for Ohio state that his last year wasn't this year
We haven't been anything close to a true option offense under Meyer. It's been 80%inside zone with the occasional h back brought into the backfield for a triple option play or play action pass. Even with Braxton the last two years we've struggled with the read option. The only difference is Braxton could mess the read up and still gain 60 yards on a broken play. JT isn't that type of player. I actually think our style of offense last year is a lot harder to stop then a true option team like Oregon. We still ran very well against MSU last year while Oregon got completely shut down against stanford. We just don't have the pieces up front this year to play the offense that was intended for this team.
I definitely was upset when we didn't retain Heacock, and there's no doubt that the defense hasn't been even close to the same since then. That being said, I really think this years defense will be much improved. We completely shut down virginia tech on first and second down, we just couldn't get it done on third down. Virginia techs receivers made some ridiculous catches that aren't gonna happen every game. Vonn looks like a stud in the backfield and I think Conley, grant, and apple will all be very good corners by the end of the year. The defensive line looked absolutely ridiculous in stopping the run last weekend, and bringing back spence will help us in pass rush significantly. If these linebackers can improve even a small bit In pass coverage, the entire defense has a chance to be very good.
There's so much wrong with this post..... For one... Does no one remember last years offense??? It's debatably the best in our schools HISTORY. Second, you have to remember that Meyers offense at Florida was one of the first to run a spread designed to emphasize the run. Now almost everybody incorporates it in some way in their offense. People have had lots of time to study it by now. Third, look at our offensive line! Absolute garbage. You can't run the ball in any offense with a terrible O-Line. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve criticism but I think people are going a bit overboard on the whole thing.
You also have to realize that 90% of our successful passing plays the last two years were off of play action. Even last year we struggled with straight drop back passing plays. We obviously don't have the threat of running the ball that we did the last two years, so our play action game is completely in affective. Which makes our passing game overall exponentially less affective
I wasn't nearly as disappointed after this one as I was after Michigan state last year, Wisconsin in 2010, or USC in 09. That being said , this one was harsh because of the effects it could have on recruiting. We blew maybe the biggest recruiting weekend in school history. Not saying that the recruits didn't have good visits, but getting embarrassed at home like that is a bad look when you're trying to sell your program as a championship contender
You can't really run bubble screens against press man coverage. That's just an easy tackle behind the LOS for the corner. No idea why they weren't passing to the right ends more though
Nike make us new jerseys plz
"Ray Allen, Mike Miller both expected to visit Ohio State after today's announcement that Lebron would be in town"
Doran grants certainly got the speed for it.... But personally I think lattimore will be outstanding at blocking kicks and punts.... Remember that PAT he jumped in the air to block this year? Freak athlete
