This first 30 min crap is garbage and they don’t allow you guys to see anything anyway often times sticking you on the opposite end of the field of the players, it’s all calculated.. It’s not like they are game planning for FAU right now. They also were supposed to allow media to see an entire practice a few days ago and revoked it. Not cool.
I wish you were the SID.
I’m more than okay with that. As a fellow coach myself, there is no reason to have media all over the place

Yeah because these nerdy writers can decipher what plays and concepts are being run. Gotta keep that all under wraps.
It's bad PR from Jerry. Last year's silly letter and this year's garbage media policy suck for fans, who just want to know how players are doing, not exactly trade secrets.
Do you read the X’s and O’s articles here? The 11W staff, nerdy or not, can absolutely decipher what they are doing. And knowing how we consume those articles, they would 100% write about it (as they should). So as much as we want to know anything and everything, it’s not a horrible idea to keep the media at a distance.
As we learned in the Marines, two people can keep a secret as long as one of them is dead. Would I rather the media have 24/7 access, or go to CFP? Your guess! :>)
And Ramzy can analyze anything, football related to thermodynamics.
Completely agree. I’d want my players focusing on the task at hand and not worrying about if a camera is on them.
Don't listen to Freddy P. Soft
What I don't understand is...in a world of commonplace drones and small hi-zoom cameras, how does any team (let alone one with a rabid fanbase) accomplish a private outside practice period at all?
I wonder if Werner is moving more towards the bullet position.
If you have two people that agree on everything, that only means one of them is not thinking at all.
I would prefer if he were moving towards the bench position

Is this comment necessary?
It's not at all but people cant help themselves but bash players.
Go warm it up.
Master Teague officially is starting to worry me. Has missed almost a week with some sort of injury.
For a guy penciled in as possible back up this is concerning.
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
I'm with you. The depth there is thin as it is.
Demario McCall, come on down...

I think Demario McCall will do very well if he stays healthy.
Healthy is the million dollar question. His track record doesn’t support this and with Teague out, we are very thin at RB.
Might explain why Day was talking about McCall as backup RB. Admittedly, I can never keep track of which position they want him at but it seems like Teague would have been the more logical choice in that role.
Maybe I’m way off on this but I get a Brandon Saine vibe from Teague. A lot of straight line speed but very stiff and not much wiggle to his game.
Anxious to hear some things leaking out from “friends of the program” on today’s scrimmage. Particularly how Fields looked as well as the o-line. Also linebackers and db’s.

This injury to Munford has me concerned. If I remember right, he was hurt last year, and in the spring. He needs to be out there getting game ready right now and breaking off the rust. Hopefully he’ll be ok. Same with Mitchell. He needs all the reps he can get. I’m pulling for him to get that starting MLB spot
Munford is coming off back surgery. They are going to ease him back and if they dont think he's ready they're not going to throw him out there. Alabi is a 5th year senior with 3 years of playing experience under his belt. Not worried. More concerned about Teague.

Get everyone heathy, that’s all I’m really worried about.
The Future is Bright at Ohio State
Best to let these guys heal up now and through the first couple of weeks of the season. We need more them for the B1G slate than for the OOC portion.
That Miller kid is big.
Transcript of screaming please.
My thoughts too! Never witnessed Day scream before!

Could really see Wilson and Olave starting at some point this season
I’m absolutely on the Olave train. He was brilliant at the end of the season.
I second that. He's a damn good receiver.
Is this the first time that K’Vaughn Pope has run with the ones? Pretty cool if he’s made a big leap forward.
That's a lot of injured players, but with no context it's hard to tell if it is a looming problem or not. Babb and Hilliard are known to have serious injuries that wipe out this season for them. Mack and Teague, let's hope it's nothing too serious.
My biggest concern with Mack is if his foot injury is lingering. I remember after Wilson broke his foot in 2014 he had problems with it for a long time. Never really fully recovered in his time at Ohio State.
We have a lot of players that are injured this year, hopefully they are not serious injuries and they all can play this year!!!! THE INJURY BUG NEEDS TO PACK UP AND GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!!!!!!!!!
All injuries mentioned are concerning, but I’m also bummed about Teradja Mitchell. He was pushing Borland hard for playing time.
Hopefully it’s just a strain.
