Great question. It seems like every team we've played the last 5 games have had their guys catching the ball on the move. Other than the Paris Campbell play against Indiana, it seems our receivers are always catching the ball standing still.

I don't know how to fix it and why it seems so easy for other teams to do it.

I'm willing to bet that Michael Thomas and Devin Smith and Jailin Marshall didn't miss any series in a close game and were all listed as starters without the or at their respective positions. Corey Smith was not listed as a starter and had 20 catches for 250 yards.

Last year it seemed like there was a new set of wide receivers every series.

I'm stoked. I just think some people are a little annoyed that Urban can't settle on a starting group of WR's. It's what happened last year and we saw how that turned out. Our best passing teams under Urban (13 and 14) had two WR's who played every series- not 6.

You can't be expected to get in the flow of the game playing every other/every 3rd series.

Yea but aren't those 32 ounces? That's almost 3 beers

Will Ohio State bring back the jet sweep/counter trey/read option game that made them so successful in 2014?

Last year felt like they were trying to become something they weren't.

I'm 99% sure Pat Elflein's number is upside down. Please correct me if wrong.

Sweet poster though.  

Edit:Unless that is Cam in the top right. My work is blocking out the full image at the bottom.

Ok it's def. Cam, he looks a lot like Pat in that picture.

I am def. not concerned about our DE's. They are absolutely loaded there. The DT's I'd agree with. Other than Michael Hill, there weren't many homeruns recently. They just have to suck up blockers and let the ends make the play.

Oh, and similar to last year, Bosa #97 will probably be playing some DT.

Yep, I def. appreciate it. You said what I wanted to say but I agree we should let it go in this thread. I started it and knew I shouldn't have.

Comment 08 Jun 2016

very good comment. Wish it was stated in the article as it seemed to be more of a black and white attack.

Comment 08 Jun 2016

Yep, this is what I was getting at but if often doesn't go over well when I try to explain this to people who bring up the 20/25% stat. I tried to avoid it here and sorry mods if this is turning into reddit. My fault

I've had a very close family member affected as a kid... Not that that makes my opinion more or less valid

That said, I don't see anything wrong with finding out the validity of a statistic when different studies come out with completely different results. We just need to find out what the 1 in 4/5 is telling us/includes (see OHIO'SPRAISE comment below). That fraction is being thrown around a lot and anybody questioning it is being vilified.

Comment 08 Jun 2016

I think if you solely think that, then you're insensitive. But why can't I think "how awful that must be for that woman" and "wonder what his punishment will be"? Maybe I've just turned into an insensitive jerk but I don't like being told how I need to feel about certain news stories. Still love ya Ramsay

Comment 08 Jun 2016

true that

Comment 08 Jun 2016

Oh absolutely. 1 out of a 1,000,000,000,000 is too many. Just the actual statistics are a hot topic right now. 1 out of 5 seems terrifying to me as a father when thinking about kids going to college when other studies show it's more like 1/50. Still way too high but one of those stats is way worse than the other.

Either way we have to fix it, def. can't argue there.
