We have a schedule where we have the luxury to rotate young players. Keep doing it until about Illinois on the schedule then tighten up the rotation with the core guys for the rest of the season.
I'm not worried.
He's my favorite Buckeye of all time. Gave absolutely everything to this team.
I hope everyone realizes how huge this is. Definitely would have been the #1 5 star receiver on most scout services. Only question I have with him and Braxton, is how well will they block. ..
This young man will have the greatest impact on offense than any other 2016 recruit. And I'm still extremely optimistic about Walker.
Young man enjoyed the process, now we get to enjoy watching him.
Roundtree or Kirk
That last play of Mcall....Wow....
Braxton never had a legit defense behind him. I have to believe if he were healthy this year the outcome of this season would of been the same. We never had a problem scoring with Braxton. We had a problem with other teams putting up 40 on us.
That being said, imo CJ lead us to the promise land. He proved he could do it, under the most difficult circumstances any quarter back could have faced. And because of that he's the starter.
The question is, was the performance of C.Jones a anomaly, or will he keep playing this way.
I see us having the "chip" on our shoulder advantage. All of our coaches and players have heard how great the SEC is and how anyone from the BIG can't compete with them. I think talent and coaching are similar. But we have 10x more motivation to win and I think that showed even inyesterdays game. I have no reason to doubt they bring that same intensity and fire for the next 2 games. If they do, I like our chances.
I think people will be suprised how much #17 handles the ball...
Big 12 is shooting themselves in the foot by not having a conference championship game. This will be the main reason we jump Baylor and tcu.
I personally think Samuel had a better week in practice and won the spot. I trust that UFM isn't going to start someone who isn't the best option regardless of what psychological games he may or may not be playing.
I also don't think Elliott is any stronger than Samuel. How many times have we watched Elliott get stuffed in short yardage situations? Getting those yards is one of the weaknesses of our team (yes O-line included).
When we were at the goal line and Samuel lowered his pads breaking 2 tackles to get the score...I don’t know if Elliott would have won that battle.
I completely agree. I understand we need to run it up the middle occasionally to keep the defense honest. But It seemed to me that we ran Samuel more times up the middle than utilizing his speed on the edges.
I love Zeke and his leadership. But if I'm honest, I like watching Samuel run the ball more.
The defense saved us last night. I can't remember ever being able to say that in the last 3 years.
Samuel is becoming the player I'm most excited to see. I know he's been injured, but he needs to go back to option #2 at rb in front of R. Smith.
Amazing. No allergies for me, just real heartfelt tears.
Do I really need to list them for you? Im not into pointing out the obvious.
Someone please let me know when I can be critical of our defensive coaching. Apparently we can continue to use youth, new scheme, it's just a few missed assignments (insert excuse here) as reasons to continue to excuse our piss poor pass defense.
I think the staff thought he was a lock and may not have put in the time/effort he needed. Florida obviously did. Now it's make up time and I like our chances.
Jt is good. Really good if our line can give him protection.
