While I don't see any of them going there, I could see Collier possibly looking to transfer. He is a freshman, getting a redshirt, but JT will be here at least two more years, maybe 3. That would make Collier going into his redshirt junior year. With Burrows and Gibson behind him, you never know.
Young coach who was born in Ohio and said his being at OSU was a dream job. While I wish he would stay, let him go get HC experience at someone else's expense and come back to us in 10 years as the next leader of the Buckeyes!!!
He will be a senior next year. Joey will have to stay his senior year to have them both. Highly unlikely, but we can pray!!
I think little brother will see how well Vrabel/Johnson have prepared Joey to get to the NFL. I mean realistically that is the ultimate goal for both of these brothers, and a legitimate goal. I think if he sees OSU prepared his brother to be a top 10 NFL draft pick, he will be all in with the Buckeyes.
Bryce Harper tweeted after the announcement he was getting tickets. I asked him if he wanted to sponsor me. I think it is pretty cool he is a huge Buckeye fan. Guess his gf plays soccer at OSU.
Easy to build powerhouses when you can recruit... just ask Urban!!!
Did you forget your sarcasm font or are you really wound that tight???
I like where our line was at last Saturday. To see Frazier and Carter all contributing was huge. That gives our studs a break. If our D line can play like that in the bowl, I like our chances.
Very seriously doubt we will miss Washington. He is a junior and I don't see him leaving early.
I have been saying all year, he will be the one true Senior we will miss next yr. Grant and Grant will be missed but their positions are stocked with talent. Same goes for Smith on O. I think Bennett is the one piece we will miss the most. Hate to see him go, but can't wait to see him play on Sundays.
I think those players would clearly rather play us, as they think we would be the easier team to beat. If we win, I would prefer to play FSU. I would love for the Buckeyes to be the team to knock Jameis Rapist and Dumbo off their cloud 9!!!
I have always defended Fickell. I have said from day one him and Withers had two differing philosophies causing strife between coaches and units. I am not giving all of the credit to Fickell, but the guy can coach. Clearly, our D coaches had a great game plan as usual AND our players executed it brilliantly!!!
Thank you!!! Now, do us all a favor and go whip the $hit out of Baylor and shut their whiny butts up!!!
I voted no, but I like what I saw on Saturday. However, like many of you mentioned above, it is only one game where we have looked that way AND it was against a team with only one real threat in Gordon. Hold Bama under 3 TDs and I will lean towards yes.
I think Ash has a lot to do with this. Him and Coombs work together much better than Withers and Coombs. I think Withers had a completely different philosophy than our other coaches last year and it affected cohesion. Now, I think all 4 D coaches are on the exact same page. I have always been a Fickell fan and believe he is a great LB coach. Just look how he has McMillan and Lee playing as Freshman. I don't believe we have to play that great on D to beat Bama, but if all 4 D units play together like they did on Saturday, I think we can hold Bama to 20. We do that, and I think we win.
Had a lot to do with having two coaches with differing philosophies. (Fickell and Withers) Fickell and Ash share much closer ideas and it is obviously showing on the field.
I am not puffing out my chest!!! I am simply saying trust Meyer and his decisions. He believes in Fickell so why the hell would fans not. He has always had solid game plans, but players (young players) haven't executed.
hate the pvt schools... never been a level playing field!!!
To each their own. Who cares what these guys do?? If they want to go around acting like 20 something super fans, why do you care???
I am still waiting on the black unis... Meyer will break them out at some point, some day!!!
You can't even bring up the SEC is this category. They are historically bad basketball schools minus Kentucky, who is a historically bad football school. However, they win titles.
don't bet your house on it...
I feel like this has way more swag than the common Bosa shrug...
