In the spring game, I saw Tate running the option so very well and he runs the ball significantly better than I've seen either of them do. He is a slippery runner and has a nose for the end zone. As I said, Barrett also possesses this skill, so I don' think they use him this year. But should Barrett go down, I could see it.
I could see us using Tate in a red zone package. He has a skill that Burrow and Haskins don't have. That said, Barrett has that skill and he would be the guy to run that package this year.
I don't think he burns the RS unless JT gets hurt. Then I see them lighting it on fire and using him in the special package
Man it's been 4 whole days since someone lost a stri...oh wait, my bad...carry on then
The No. 2 quarterback this season will likely be the leader in the clubhouse to start next season,
I don't understand why this is the prevailing thought. Coach Meyer has shown time and again that the best player will play at a position. It could be that Haskins wins the backup role this year, but Burrow beats him out next season to start. Or that Burrow wins and Martell steps up in the off season and makes his move. I would not assume anything regarding the 2018 QB situation.
I would not assume anyone makes other plans either. Once someone is labeled the 2018 starter, that could affect plans for someone, but I can't see it happening before then.
FWIW, I do expect one of the current 3 backups to finish their career elsewhere.
1997 ROSE BOWL — NO. 4 OHIO STATE VS. NO. 2 ARIZONA STATE - this was one of the greatest football games I've ever seen. I know we won the Natty against Oregon, but man, that game was over early on. The Rose Ball was just a joy to watch beginning to end.
From Birm at TOS
One player has emerged to take the majority of first-team reps in practice, but Meyer declined to identify the player. The four left in the battle are Malcolm Pridgeon, Branden Bowen, Demetrius Knox and Matthew Burrell.
Pridgeon and Burrell took most first-team reps during practices that media members were allowed to observe earlier in fall camp.
Meyer said the competition could be resolved within a week.
I hope this doesn't lead to injuries. We used to do this when I played in order to get better, and it cost us some games after injury in practices. There is a reason you go against the 2s in practice. In Urban we trust tho.
The Parris Campbell position!
I really think Carman is heading to the good guys. It looks to me like he likes the attention and wants to be courted. It would be easy to just commit to the local team and have everyone else in the country forget about him. This play lets him have a little fun, see the country, and feel important for a bit. I get it. Looking forward to his commitment, though.
I'm less worried about production from the group as a whole and more worried that not one of them will be seen as a standout stats-wise because we spread out the snaps among so many talented guys. I guess that is the power of the unit, no "I" in "Team" mentality. They will be great, but I don't expect any national awards.
Thanks for the hard work, Tim. Best of luck to you. Digital Marketing is a fun gig. I'm sure you will be great!
Here's to the new guy coming in!
i think the idea is to go fast, run a lot of plays, wear out the DBs with a lot of running, and then beat them deep when they are huffing air. That's my hope
I seem to remember Pryor's stiff arm being pretty good
Glad to see someone stepping up at RG. With Jones at LT, that could be a powerful OL
You can get the BTN channel for Roku, but you have to have a cable subscription right now to login. I'm hoping right change soon as cable is a dying game. Would pay a little extra for it's content, say $4/mo
Just got a Roku and cut the cord. Happy with it so far. SlingTV ($45/mo for blue+orange) gives you lots of live sports. I hear that ESPN3 channel will be showing the games ABC would normally show. If someone can confirm or deny, I would be interested. Sling has local NBC affiliate channel, but that's it so far. I'm hoping the ABC affiliate jumps on. Fox is front and center on Sling, so we are set for The Game. I'm also on the West coast (San Diego), so if you wanna compare notes, let me know. Yes 9AM games felt weird at first, but you get used to starting your day with CFB and enjoying some time outside the rest of the day.
What he lacks in arm he makes up for in legs
Sad to see you go Darius. Congrats on the Letter. Always a Buckeye! Best of luck in the future.
Also, sad we did not take a couple of extra recruits in the 2017 cycle and knock off the Tide in the final rankings. I think that leaves us at 83 schollies if my math serves. Hopefully some well-deserving walk-ons get the recognition they deserve.
This question serves to prove that it's still the offseason
This didn't happen for no reason. Look whose head is at the bottom of that screen. I really though that's why Knight was there. I'm actually surprised Schiano didn't take the Oregon job. Hard to say no to Nike money. You don't want to be the guy after the guy, but Helfrich kinda already was that. Looked like the right fit, but what do I know. I get letting your kids finish high school. That's a big deal
Here's some help for you. Keeping posting and you'll get there soon enough... :)
Do we have a man at the airport to see if Carman is getting on a plane to SC? How about highway watchers?
