Yes but there's no point in him declaring for the draft because as fickell said he is going to redshirt this year which would be 2 years of red shirting and 1 year of being suspended
Against what had been their best team from 07-15
I'd agree, especially making it to OHSAA title game 3/4 years and winning it the last two years it's safe to say he knows what he's doing
I completely agree with you. I went to the 59-0 ass whooping with my dad and when I got home Sunday to re watch it and saw Gus was calling it I was even happier. Purely out of respect, I'm going to quote as many Gus phrases as I can from that game.
1. "Cardale Jones, Cardale Jones, Cardale Jones. The whole state of Ohio is counting on Cardale Jones."
2. "Oh and they're playing that buckeye swag song now."
3. "Gordon with the carry and OH, BOSA TOUCHDOWN Buckeyes. These Buckeyes can smell blood"
Personally I love the noon kick, but really only for The Game. As a 17 year old senior I'm used to waking up sore after a game Friday night and looking at the clock to see its 1:15 and OSU is up 35-6. So, for 11/12 games I hate the noon kick but I love it for The Game. I couldn't do it waiting until 3:30 or god no 8:00. Basically, I love whooping Michigan's ass at high noon.
I agree and I've felt this way for about a year with ESPN. I love their CFB coverage but everything else besides Mike & Mike is trash to me. The CFB coverage has even gone down for me from a 10 to about a 8.5-9. The best days were when Fowler hosted Gameday and Herbie/Musburger were in the booth together.
This is Fake News. It was an extremely close play but it looked more like JT got the first down than he didn't. Either way, my HS coach always told us that when we're on the road don't let the refs make a call to change the game. If UM stops Samuel from running wild on the 3rd & 9 play its 4th & 7. Quit whining, Um lost and OSU won. Thought you'd be use to it by now.
Totally agree, I even think Mcsorely should be number 1 on this list. Something about him, how he isn't afraid of the bright lights really scares me about OSU and PSU colliding in Columbus at night with both teams being undefeated scares me.
The thing that was so weird about JT being top 5 in the heisman voting as a RSFR is for most of the year he was not in the discussion at all. When you look at JT stats (prior to MSU) he had not played well at all against a good defense. He tore up KSU, Maryland, IU, UC, and RU but struggled against navy, got obliterated against VT, and was horrible in the PSU game up until OT. I remember going into East Lansing that year I was very nervous and wasn't sold on JT. Then all of a sudden with 26 passes and 16 carries JT became a buckeye God throwing for 300 yards and 3 TD's with 86 yards and 2 TD's on the ground. After that all of a sudden JT played well against Minn and he was in the heisman discussion.
Personally, I would say that what we have seen the last 18 starts from JT is who the real JT is. Herman is clearly an incredible offensive coach and I think that he made JT look better than he was. JT's first year he looked like a game breaker but now I believe that was just Herman doing a great job of playing to his strengths. Herman did the same exact thing with Cardale Jones when JT got hurt, the offense kept putting up 40 but the offense looked way different, all of a sudden most passes were 15 or more yards downfield. Then, when Beck came in both guys seemed to regres. I don't think Beck was so bad, I think he was an very good OC, top 20 but he isn't Herman good. I think what we have seen from JT is what he really is, more of a game manager.
Well as a RSF yes he was a heisman canidate but that was when he had an incredible OC and more importantly that was 18 starts ago.
I also don't think we will win in January unless JT plays like he did 18 starts ago....
Ohio state will win but it won't be pretty, I'll even say that we'll win because of our defense. Bucks win 31-16 despite OU having more passing and total yards. Defense score 1 TD and forces another turnover to give JT a short field.
I don't blame you for saying this but I hate this narrative that the Cavs are this star filled team when really they're not. Before Lebron, Love was putting up big numbers on a team whose only offensive option was love. Before lebron Kyrie was a flashy PG who just couldn't make everyone else better. Before lebron, TT was a athletic guy who could rebound but only score 5-6 a night. Before Lebron, JR was a selfish player who wouldn't play d and now he goes toe to toe with the other teams best. I just can't stand how Lebron doesn't get the credit he deserves sometimes for making everyone around him better. I think if you took the 4 starters out not named lebron and put in Williams, shumpert, Korver, and frye I still think they make the finals but if you took Lebron out of the lineup I think they might have lost to Indy and for sure Toronto.
Even though he just got drafted last week I think Pat Mahomes would've been something special in our offense. He can run better than JT IMO and he has a 10x better arm.
I'm excited about all three young QBs in Burrow, Haskins, and Martell. I think all 3 could do great if given a shot. Personally I know it won't happen but I would rather have either Haskins or burrow get the job this year. I know JT is a good player but I think we all know what he is at this point. He's a great decision maker who has poor arm strength, struggles throwing under pressure, and can run pretty well for his size. I just think that if JT starts the same thing will happen as last year but I hope I'm wrong.
Looking at those QB's I think there are only 2 QB's who are pretty close to as JT in McSorley and Mayfield.
This was the perfect example of what I've been telling my friends for weeks now, that the cavs have been coasting since the all star break. I'm not thrilled that they've been playing like this but I can understand why they're coasting and it's not like this has never happened before. Now I know the Cavs have only won 1 title since Lebron came back but it's pretty clear that they're a dynasty or very close to being in the finals the last two years and winning one title. Back to what I was saying about this happening before to teams having pretty much the same team over a long period of time, back in the late 90s in the MLB the biggest dynasty was the Yankees. In 1998, they won 114 games, in 1999 they won 98 games, and then in 2000 they won 87 games. They won the WS each year though. Cavs will win it this year I feel it.
I see what you're trying to say but for me personally i hate trying to make things to personal. Yes, if that was my future wife I'd be pissed and would hate the person. But for me even though I know what zeke did looked bad I still don't care but I understand why someone would.
I've watched the series. Now, I will say that Tate is one cocky m'fer but he can back it up. Before Gorman played Cedar Hill Tate said something to the tune of "they only hate me because they know I'm good". I loved this quote because Tate is showing that he does know he's good but he's gonna back it up. He's gonna be a special one when he gets his shot at QB1.
In the big ten alone I'd only be okay with Franklin because of his recruiting. Nationwide though there are still only a few that I would be in favor of. I'd say Fick, Herman, and even though I can't stand him Dabo Swinney can coach.
I understand what you're saying and no I'm not married, I'm 17 and no I don't have a sister. I wasn't saying that I think what he did is okay, all I said was for me I don't care too much, maybe if I was married and had a sister I'd feel different but I don't so I'm not gonna base my feelings on what ifs.
For me personally of the small number of Buckeye players I've met down on Campus when I've met them in a crowded space like cantina or anywhere on high street on a Saturday in the fall the players have been jerks. Especially when after a game in 2014 I ran into Heuerman and he was a total jerk and he was my favorite buckeye. Then a few weeks later it happened a girl my friend was seeing was roommates with a girl Heuerman was seeing. I got to meet him again and he couldn't have been nicer. Sorry I just love that story.
I agree with you completely. Most if time I think Zeke gives off this persona that he doesn't give a shit what people think of him and he would do what he pleased. He may have been able to get around this at John Burroughs in Missouri where one small town has their eyes on you and even at OSU where it's mainly the state of Ohio, but he's not gonna get away with it playing as the best player on a team owned by Jerry Jones, in that stadium, and you're team nickname is America's Team where the whole country tunes in to see Dallas lose.
Obviously what Zeke did was wrong and stupid. I don't think though that he is an awful person for doing it. He's not breaking any laws, he's acting incredibly immature but I've always thought of him like that. Remember how when OSU won the title and he was doing that stupid salmon thing with his hands when he was on live. For me he's acting immature but honestly I don't care what he does, he just needs to realize how he represents himself sometimes.
