This. 
The “Bengals are going to ruin him” especially from a lot of browns fans is hilarious to me. 
 

Will he lose every playoff game? Maybe. I’d doubt it but maybe. But look at what they do when they draft a qb. Look at the draft with Palmer and after. Same with dalton. They’re offense heavy. Weapons and OL. they try. It doesn’t always work out but they try to surround the qb with the pieces they need to succeed.

And sometimes you’re unlucky with the kids that come up in a few cycles. There really hasn’t been any midwestern rb talent lately.
 

It wasn’t so long ago that LJ. couldn’t close on any DTs. Dexter and Rashard Lawrence, Marvin Wilson, etc. 

Comment 12 Jan 2020

They still have end of game James Franklin, however, who gives away a ton of games. 

Comment 11 Jan 2020

Really curious to see how Clemson‘a defense is next year. Simmons loss is huge. I don’t know who they have in the wings backing up etienne, so that’s a big loss. If their DL isn’t drastically improved, could be a long season for them. 
 

PSU also intrigues me. Schedule sets up nice, their D should be pretty good, and they have some pieces on offense but no one that’s going to take over a game really. Brown and friermuth are good, but I don’t think an RB/TE combo is going to take over a game. 
 

Georgia just brought in the transfer QB who looks to be good but I’m not holding my breath that they have a creative enough offense to use him and that OL loses the best OL coach in the country and 4 starters. They have a ton of talent but it’s all young and hasn’t played together.

They’re delusional but Clemson hasn’t been top 5 until this year. They develop though.

The problem with true air raid is they don’t have a good method for running the ball. You want air raid concepts but some other looks that force the defense into conflict. That’s why urban’s spread power was so effective when he had the right mix of guys. Same with the offense this year and even Clemson, you need to defend the whole field. It’s tough to do.

2014 is still it for me. Such a fun season end and I watched the championship game from a couch in a hospice center while waiting for my dad to pass. He died the next morning. But that game was the only highlight of that entire week. 

Comment 29 Dec 2019

That’s not really a timeout issue. He didn’t run the structure of the play wrong. He thought fields was about to scramble. He wasn’t. It’s the benefit and drawback of the playmaker qb. He buys time but there can be issues like this. It happens. 

Comment 29 Dec 2019

Hard not to feel like this one was stolen a bit. I’m all for not giving the refs a chance to change the game but aside from wade’s impact in potentially stopping other td drives, the targeting gave them a td and they literally took 2 tds off the board. One was right, one was ridiculously wrong. 
 

that being said, when they were kicking FGs all throughout the first half, my first thought was this feels like an inverse 2014 game where bama was killing it but just kept getting FGs

Comment 29 Dec 2019

I’ve gotten better recently. I used to be miserable and then I think it just clicked that it’s a game and has no bearing on me no matter what happens. Still sucks when they lose and I’m a little mad tonight because I think they were the better team, but I’m not angry outwardly and I’ll be fine when I wake up. I’ll listen to season review podcasts, watch some buckeye basketball for the next few months and wait for next year. 

Comment 23 Dec 2019

See, that’s a reasonable take and I won’t argue that. I’m talking about the “gurrr, mcfuckface can go eat a case of herpes rats, gurrr..”

most people hare him because they worship at the altar of urban. And like I said, hate him, you do you. But I’m not giving him that space in my brain. 

and bad, indefensible choices aside, Zach and Courtney should be doing better at protecting their kids. 

Comment 22 Dec 2019

Some of you just need to let last year go. You sound like dumb 12 year olds with your word play insults. You drag down the entire fan base with your shit. 
 

mcmurphy made some questionable at best journalistic choices and I get the hate, but much like tat gate taking down tressel at just the right time, we’re likely in a better place now with day. Who we would have lost had urban stayed. 

Comment 22 Dec 2019

Also wonder if Cincy would pass on a young guy already on staff for Coombs. Not saying they should or shouldn’t just wondering. I also wonder how much fickell wants to leave. He loves Ohio, there’s no pressure, and he can just do his thing. 

Comment 21 Dec 2019

He’s on that joe burrow 3 year grad plan. The senior bowl put it out that he accepted but then took it back/deleted the tweet and the word was he hadn’t officially decided. But I haven’t been paying attention the past few days so maybe he made up his mind for sure to go. 

Comment 17 Dec 2019

Draft eligible players who graduate and declare. So for instance joe burrow could have gone the year he left Ohio state. Even though he was only a junior by class. 

Comment 15 Dec 2019

Every comment about one of these kids is hypothetical. It’s recruiting. The whole will they or won’t they drama is why so many people follow it. Everyone thought this class was locked up in like July with bijan and knighton and look at where things are now. This is the 84th version of just this year’s recruiting thread. At a minimum of 300 posts per, that’s 25000+ posts about high school kids who may or may not be any good and may or may not even play at OSU. 
 

So let’s chill with the high and mighty talk. 

Comment 15 Dec 2019

Everyone keeps talking like this but I haven’t seen any meltdown. Meltdown is “we’re screwed, we’re never going to be good again, we might as well be Texas.” Most of these are legit, “well this would suck to lose one of the best prospects in this class at a position of great need. Who can we get to replace him?” 

Comment 15 Dec 2019

That’s because your situation is false equivalency. Set aside for a moment the racist baseball player (a big thing to set aside), but only one qb can play at a time and he had to leave when he had an excuse beyond playing time. He was also the 2nd highest rated recruit ever. 
 

hafley went from good reputation with players, but still an unknown to most, to one of the hottest coordinators on the market. He took a middling job in the weakest P5 conference when he can leave whenever he wants without penalty. There would have been similar or better jobs available next year. Unless he didn’t trust his ability to maintain a high level. 
 

do you see the difference?
