Can't wait for Jack to get the opportunity to play! The things he was doing in his film were unbelievable. Those were quality opponents too, saw Akron Hoban and Saint Ignatius on the highlight real.
I will never forget Braxton. He's done so much for this university from the 2012 undefeated season, to the unbelievable play against Penn State. He is a true Buckeye. P.S. I was so excited as a Buckeye fan to watch him during Fickell's one season. He made the unbelievable Hail Mary to Devin Smith to beat Wisconsin, then led the team down and made an unbelievable throwback pass to tie the game against Purdue. I will miss him and wish him all the best. I-O! my good man.
Offensively we'll be loaded. Damon Webb even though he played this year he'll be the number 2 corner with Conley being the number 1. I'm really worried about our safeties and d-tackels that is the only 2 positions were I see weakness next year.
Next year's D-line will be talented but inexperienced. We already have little Bosa and Cooper coming in along with Cornell next year to make an impact but the D-line will be untested.
Bosa, Zeke, and Cradle need to go. They have accomplished everything they could possibly want. Lee may go because of where he is projected and Michael Thomas will defiantly declare. Just hope we don't lose to much. Hope the defensive backfield stays in tact. Whether all of them declare or don't declare Gob bless them they will always be remembered as great Buckeyes!
Cooper is not the coach you want to emulate, better to emulate Woody or even Tressell. Run the same play until they prove they can stop you
The game was one of the worst I have ever watched in my 18 years on this earth. I have never seen a game where I knew the Buckeyes were going to lose when the game was tied. My whole life as a Buckeye fan I have expected someone to make a play that did not happen last night. Think back to last year every time it looked bad for us we made a play. Zeke's 45 yard run on 4th down vs TTUN, the defense intercepting Blake Sims after a 23 yard punt with the bucks leading by 7. And finally the defense allowing 10 points off 4 turnovers in the national championship game. This whole season I have always expected us to win because of our competition. Not this game. MSU wanted to win more and we looked like we were sleep walking. The offense played like they expected the defense to make a play and the defense played like they wanted each other to make a play. Bosa did not even show up other than 3 offside penalties. I don't think he made 1 tackle for loss. The 1st offside was fine because it was a passing situation and he wanted to kill the inexperienced quarterback but the other two were inexcusable. Darron Lee has made 1 big play all year, his pick six vs NIU that's it. He has played terrible. We are to good of a defense to expect others to make plays. Darron, last year was looking to make plays this year he is looking for plays to come to him.
Hope our offense turns to an aggressive running back first offense. J.T should never have more carries than Zeke. If Beck wants to run J.T. then run the zone read.
It doesn't matter if we have the 2002 defense and the 2014 offense playing. As long as Beck is calling the plays we will lose.
Have to disagree they still would have lost because Beck doesn't throw a downfield pass at all. They could have had Archie in the backfield and they still wouldn't hand the ball off. The game resembled a Tressell game. To conservative this offense is the best when they are aggressive
AGREED hire back Herman and give him Saban's salary I don't give a damn at least we will have an aggressive offense.
I know it is hard for the defense to play well when they are on the field for 2/3 of the game but allowing MSU to go 7/15 on third downs terrible. I just want to know why we did not pass the ball down the field in the 2nd and 3rd quarter we tried 2 deep passes. 1 to Braxton and 1 to Michael Thomas. Braxton needs to touch the ball more as a receiver and not as a running back.
First, demote the OC whoever is calling the plays. Second I have a problem with how much they are running J.T. If they want to run J.T. at least make it a zone read play so Zeke can have a chance to tough the ball. The defense to was not prepared to the running attack. Stat of the game MSU was 7/15 on 3rd down and 1/1 on 4th down that's 8/16 on 3rd and 4th down conversions.
Vote is in for Jack he's down to 21% though. Hope Buckeye nation makes it happen for him.
Amen to that I want Cris Fowler to say that the noise is deafening at least 5 times throughout the game.
The game is really simple, JT needs to make plays to keep MSU honest and open up the running for Zeke. This is not like TTUN when MSU just had to worry about the running backs they have to worry about the quarterback running too. If JT hits a couple early passes specifically to Vanett off play action Ohio State will win the game easily. This defense has not seen a team that has a dominant running game with multiple positions like Ohio State. I thought Urban played a little to conservative last week. The playbook will be completely open and look for Ohio State to score a lot. Final Score: Bucks 38, Sparty 17.
347! Cook throws for about 275. Go Bucks Beat Sparty
In my own opinion, Cardale was perfectly suited for last year's offense because of Devin Smith. Devin Smith made teams respect our deep passing game opening up the running game for Zeke. I don't now what happened to Cardale because he showed an ability to scramble when needed during the 3 games. I just think J.T. just brings so much to the offense we have. He can make good throws in the 5-15 yard range where Cardale has struggled. Cardale is a pro style quarterback who needs a deep threat in order to be effective. I believe that if Cardale Jones was Alabama's quarterback last year instead of Blake Sims that team would be unstoppable. My vote has been for J.T. and I think that was validated last night.
I feel so bad for this kid. I know injuries are a part of football but this is a huge blow. Heal up fast Noah praying for you man!
The only thing I know is that USC always lost a game that they should've won and they weren't concerned about Stanford because Stanford wasn't a rival. If Harbaugh went to a school like Nebraska or Minnesota then I'd worry
This kid is a beast. Playing with him is the greatest feeling in the world
Finally I don't have to have my Saturdays ruined by satan.
Amen good to see warriors going back to Ohio State for football...WJHS class of '16
We defiantly do and as jack's teamate we will play Toledo Whitmer, st v, Hoban, st ignatius, Benedictine, and bishop Watterson to name a few
