What a game — the amount of osu tos on the plus side .. and still won by 15.. easy could have been a 25 point win

Not to nitpick, but we won that game by 22. Take away a couple of turnovers and it would have been a 35 or so point win.

That's a solid list... As much as I love guys like Washington and Bennett I'm going Hankins next to Jones at defensive tackle..

Go Bucks!

What I read:

...Haskins next to (Cardale) Jones at defensive tackle

It’s late and it’s been a long day.

Good list. Ill go Adolphus and Hankins at DT

Id have almost the exact list. Id go Conley over Lattimore, though. I think he was the better college player.

I'd go w/ your team, except I would replace Braxton Miller w/ Dwayne Haskins (reluctantly), and John Simon w/ Nick Bosa-no brainer

HS
DataBuck's picture

I'm sorry...but just imagine what Haskins could do with Thomas,Smith, and Samuel. That's 7 TD's a game through the air and probably another 3 on the ground with Zeke. I love me some Xbrax, but be real...haskins arm with those 3 receivers? That's unstoppable

The truth is in the details...

Seriously Miller over Haskins? Over the greatest QB performance in B1G history? dont think so.

HS
Spartan13's picture

Miller may be the greatest running QB of all time, pairing him with future NFL HOF RB and a bulldozing line.The defense will have to stack 8 in the box despite those receivers and Braxton had a solid arm. 

HS
MiamiBuckeye's picture

I have great respect for what Miller did as a Buckeye, but if we're being real, and if each of them are in Columbus at the same time, Miller will be playing the Tate Martell role under Haskins. 

You don't sit Haskins for anyone. Miller's best passing game ever was worse than Haskins's worst passing game ever.

Pairing a great running QB with a great back and great WR's but be dumb IMO.  

Braxton didnt have half the arm Haskins does even without the shoulder surgeries. 

Haskins with Zeke, Thomas, D Smith, Samual, Brax, etc would be the best offense of all time.

What?  Accuracy may not have been up to par, but arm strength was never a problem for Braxton pre surgery.

HS

Having Haskins with those receivers, along with Zeke and that OLine...the only question would be how do we want to score on this particular play?

This is a little like saying which is my favorite kid (it’s definitely the oldest one, the other two are huge pains in the ass).  I won’t list individual players because there are too many great ones at each position. But I will say Meyer’s first team was one of extremely high character. To go undefeated knowing they had nothing but pride and brotherhood to play for was impressive. And a testament to Meyer’s leadership.

One things for sure... you can make dozens of these lists and you'll find one common theme.. Not a lot of dudes from the 2018 squad. As much as people want to bang on the coaches these sort of lists put in full view the talent drop off at a bunch of positions. Think of how many guys on this years defensive squad would make the 3 deep on the all Urban list? or even 4 deep?  We have been flat loaded and just have to hope the kids who didn't get a chance to play much this year can get us back to where we were. Especially on defense... 

Go Bucks!

HS
milhouse4588's picture

Defensive side of the ball I agree.

Offensive side of the ball I think the other issues the last couple of years before this one we had an awful WR coach and a QB who couldn't throw that well. The cream rises to the top and Thomas and Devin Smith were THAT good that we remember them, but if you put KJ Hill and Parris Campbell on a team where they could produce like they do now for 2-3 years they'd probably be on more lists.

KJ Hill has some of the best hands of the receivers of the last couple years and is an amazing slot receiver, but there's also 5 other guys outperforming the best receivers of the last couple of years because of our production.

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.

Agree with all of the lists above. I have to go with Braxton at QB, that dude when he was healthy gave me the same feeling as watching LBJ and Jordan. You were just waiting for him to do something crazy.

It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.
