Couldn't agree more Gunner.

In what way have we needed to "show" anything different? 

Our receivers are catching everything and getting yards after catch.

This receiving corps is special and Fields is feeding them.

Some players become completely different when they get experience under their belt. 

As well as hearing every day for the past year how bad they were last year.

I'm sure they worked their tails off this off-season to prove they belong on the field. I'm glad they didn't throw in the towel and I am pulling for them to be beasts this year. If they struggle, Next Man Up.

I used to play some pickup games at Jesse Owens South. Remember playing against a walk-on Basketball player for OSU (can't recall the name). Thought I was going to school him and show him I deserved a walk-on spot as well. The reason I thought this, watched him play some mop up time during season and remembered how awful he looked out there on the floor. I learned something that day...scholarship athletes are phenomenal athletes on a completely different level.  This walk-on destroyed me and my buddies by himself. I got a new respect that day for not only the scholarship players, but the guys that make it as walk-ons...Oh! and I enjoyed one Huge piece of humble pie that day as well.

How can anyone take what this guy says about the game of football seriously. Has he ever participated in any organized sport or athletic activities with that physique? Can the guy even pick up and hold a microphone? His talent...stirring the pot, not literally because of his lack of strength, but with his words.

I think the new RS rule will be a huge boost in that department. 

You sir hit the nail on the head. The new RS rule allows coaches an opportunity to evaluate a Freshman on the playing field without losing a year of eligibility if they do not show out as they we (fans) expect.

So many factors play into this, but the key to the future of Ryan Day's success is his staff. His job evaluation is going to be based on recruiting (and keeping) the best coaches, recruiters and support team around him as well as managing said group to remain one cohesive unit that works well together for the common good of the team.

Always has to be negative spin to everything good that happens. What in the heck is the worry? There are probably 3-4 walk on kickers (this used to be the norm for all kickers) that are ready to go. So someone gets hurt, next man up. The kid accepts a gray shirt, he is not going anywhere, he's all Buckeye.

Our o line recruiting may be the weakest of our position groups.

I really don't see that, as illustrated by a few others prior to my comment. I see a bunch of studs in this position group, yet young and inexperienced. Every year the OLine is restocked with a few studs. I see this group being a strength for the foreseeable years due to the high level of recruits coming in. Some extremely high profile guys with the addition of some lower rated players that surprise (Munford) everyone.

I agree with you Berg '19 Defense will be special. New defensive coaches along with the depths of talent at the ready...teams are not going to have film on them and not know how to attack early in the year and as the year goes, the confidence will grow within these young Bullets. I am excited for this defense. I believe our weakness over the past couple of years, becomes one of our strengths.

Comment 17 Apr 2019

All of the above looked great and I am excited to see them get their time on the field and prove themselves however, I am going to pick my breakout defensive player of the year.

Super Soph Teradja Mitchell is going to take over the Mike and renew LBU. 

Comment 28 Mar 2019

Fields - Under

He gets pulled early and often because we smoke some teams and get Baldwin some PT. Throws for about an average of 230yds/gm and runs for an average of 60 yds/gm.

Dobbins - Over

He is a beast this year, only thing to stop him from the Over is Fields or emergence of 2nd running back that is too good to keep on the sidelines.

Hill - Under

Too many threats, too much talent. Spread the ball around. He will lead in receptions, but won't reach 1000 yds.
