Birm, thanks so much for all the information. That being said, if this is something you feel comfortable answering, is the possible 2015 news a positive or negative for the buckeyes?
So pumped .., played with his older brother in grade school and he was a beast too. Josh will be a great player for us
I agree completely..., the commercials are so annoying and they do nothing but make the brand seem like an old guy trying to be hip.. But atleast they aren't as bad as the Mazda commercials that they would show last year with the car driving on the train or whatever
Here's my issue with it.... Let's assume that Braxton agrees that his best shot is at he back and accepts the switch.... He then has to compete with jalin Marshall dontre wilson and parris Campbell for playing time.... Is he really going to be better then those top 2? It's just another competititon
Don't like the idea of either thing honestly. Playing at smaller stadiums against Mac schools does nothing for us. Playing "scrimmages" would just turn into smaller games and those are basically what the first non conf games are anyway. It's just one more chance for players to get hurt
Outstanding staff, have to give him credit where it's due. That being said with our momentum there's a great chance we pull in the No. 1 2016 class and we have a great start in 2017, with players recruited perfectly to fit our system. It's going to be very hard to slow us down in a couple of years. Michigan will be back but we will have a strangle hold on this conference
I just don't understand oregons thinking..... Why would you continue to let Zeke run all over the field? There's a much higher chance of a ball being tipped or dropped then there is of you stopping our running game with two deep safeties. Might as well just not play defense
LOL Amari Whoo???? The number 9 that couldn't be stopped that night played for Ohio State...
It sucks the way this school treated him but this dudes not giving up... They're gonna have to put a restraining order on him to get him to leave
I've watched a lot of highlight tapes but this one.... Wow. I would say this kid is a beast but he's not a kid... He's a grown ass man... And a bad one. I love his attitude. This dude is out their to beat you up every single play.... Go get em urbz
I'm dissapointed.... I thought you were going to be raising money for a time machine :/ anyway 90 days till the spring game isn't that bad! Crazy to think about
Watched the film room version and gained a lot of insite.
1. I never realized why out running backs always like up in pistol and then motion to a traditional halfback spot by the QB. It prevents the opposing defense from knowing the formation and makes it harder to call the defense.
2. The Oregon defensive staff was awful at adjusting.... We ran that counter play with Zeke like 10 times and all the coaches on the show could see it coming... Oregon couldnt
3. Bosa might not have had any sacks but he was in the backfield all night. Oregon had success running early but couldn't gain anything in the second half
Jokes aside this will be a complete blowout. Wouldn't e surprised if we put up 70 and hold them to less then 20.
Virginia tech will have a trick up their sleeves.... A 15 man front. It will catch us off guard and we will be calling for Becks head.
He is a system QB who will never be successful in the NFL and I've said it all year.... Great kid and of course only 5 picks on the year is impressive but look at what he throws to. Either wide open out routes or wide open receivers because of play action. Outstanding college player, not an NFL qb
We will end up with both the top ohio linemen.... Why would you turn down playing for the best coach I'm the game for that ass clown Kelly. I respect it from an academic and religious standpoint but as had been said before you either come to ohio state or you lose to us.
I agree. I think the defense this year was very good at times and just OK at others but overall a pretty solid defense. I understand what you're saying about who they had to play but the 09 and 10 teams both shut down top offenses in their bowl games and were consistent all year. I think next years D will be top 10 nationally
We will be a powerhouse in the draft the next couple of years..... Pretty much the entire defense next year could potentially go in the first two rounds. On offense Zeke vannett the QBs mike thomas and a few of the linemen will all be drafted .
Not so sure about that.... The 2009 and 2010 defenses were completely dominant.
Oregon fans at the game were really nice. Talked to a bunch of them and they were all very gracious. Big change up from the alabama fans
Staff / Birm.... Someone posted earlier today that Scott and Harris aren't quite solid on their commitments due to their recruiters at each school leaving for other jobs... Is there any truth to this? If so are the buckeyes still going hard after either of them?
Extremely happy for this kid. I remember walking by him after the Wisconsin game last year and said good game to him and you could just tell he was humble and thankful... So happy to see a guy like him go out with a ring. Hopefully he will get a chance in the league!
I hate him too but his tweet the other day was golden... Don't know how to embed tweets but it said something like "Ohio State can enjoy being the undisputed national champion until alabama claims it in 2030". That's just too accurate. By my count, we now have 6 consensus titles and alabama has 8....ridiculous that people really say bama has 15 titles
It will be interesting to see how this team is remembered in history.... Wasn't considered elite for most of the year but by the end of the year they certainly were. I'd say a 42-20 win in the championship is a pretty impressive showing
Was in the student section about 8 rows from the field.... I felt at halftime like we had the game easily won. Then we turned the ball over 4 times and I just though oh my how can this be happening. End of the game was awesome. But the best part was during carmen ohio.... I looked down on the field and saw Jacob Jarvis, the boy with muscular dystrophy that the team has embraced. I just broke down and started tearing up. It was so awesome to see him in such joy and as happy as I was that we won, that will be the moment I really remember from the game
