I buy it, pun intended. Darnell Washington is moving his newborn and teenage girlfriend from Las Vegas to Athens for "daycare."
He is an overachiever for sure, but he has only average tackling ability and looked listless out there at times. I want him to do well in the NFL but I just don't know if he has the tackling ability and aggression necessary for success on the next level.
It's crazy that Olave, 19, is only like six months older than Fleming.
Olave will be an animal if he can add around 8 pounds of muscle in the off-season, which he should be able to at his age.
Don't sleep on Jameson Williams either.
A society with undue and excessive respect for law and order is a totalitarian society.
You should be banned for your racist username. Blithely and ignorantly comparing Stanley Jackson to "Action Jackson." I guess you failed to realize that Stanley Jackson's mom is a white American.
I'm basing my prediction on my evaluation of in-game play, not on star ratings. Come down from your high horse. Teague/Crowley/Chambers just doesn't appear to be on the level of Etienne/Edwards-Helaire.
It's faulty to assume that there mere existence of this video will cause other people to pat police officers on their backsides. Also, it's troubling that you believe that an officer should be able to shoot someone for such innocuous, mirthful conduct. Even if this is just a descriptive statement, it's an indictment of our law enforcement apparatus as wanton and wicked.
That's absurd if true. Highly unlikely Ohio State makes it back to the CFP playoff w/o a stud RB like Elliot or Dobbins and it doesn't appear that we have that kind of talent on the roster right now.
It's unjust and socially counterproductive to criminalize such innocuous conduct.
That's why they call it the $EC.
Can't wait until the PSU game next year!
Again, the strength of the D line and the cornerbacks offset the weakness of our linebackers. We had a DE for the love of Pete who forced offenses to change their identities. Did you see how Clemsin threw only short passes and chipped and/or double-teamed Young on almost every play. Strengths like this conceal your weaknesses. Also, our defense didn't look so hot down the stretch.
Ohio State will not have such strengths next year, and our defense will be back to a 2018 level.
I'm at work right now so I can't respond to this in depth. I meant to say that our linebackers, Fuller, and Proctor were responsible for ALL the TDs. But Browning was HORRIBLE against Clemsin as he always is. He is not good at anything other than rushing off the edge.
Browning is much less slow but he's not the answer either.
I don't. Was it real last summer? Washington said that Harrison, Borland, Werner, and Browning had "equity" in the program, which sounds awfully Meyer-like. The hard reality here is that Browning, Borland, and Warner are not very good linebackers. There's simply no way around it. We have two years' tape to go on.
We will NEVER win a natty with Borland, Browning, and Werner as a starting linebacker corps.
That was Lawrence's polite way of saying they saw on film that our linebackers suck.
Although Borland and Werner (and even Harrison) are so hot either, Browning had no business on the field that night, except as an edge rusher.
No, we didn't lose the game due to Browning. We lost it due to Browning, Fuller, and Proctor, who were almost exclusively responsible for EVERY CLEMSIN TOUCHDOWN.
The D was okay against Clemsin in the beginning due to the strength of the D line and corners. The D line should be good next year, but will not have a player like Chase Young who makes teams change their offensive identity. The secondary won't be anywhere near as good, especially in the beginning of the season. Again, those strengths offset the weakness of the middle of our defense, and that became more evident as we began to play more talented opponents late in the season. We have PLENTY of tape to evaluate Browning, Borland, and Werner and the reality is that they just aren't very good linebackers, with Browning having absolutely no business playing the position.
I hear you and I really like your post. But you'll feel bad again when the coaches start Borland, Browning, and Werner at linebacker and Proctor at safety and we again can't make reads or tackle when we face talent-equated opponents.
Miscues and bad officiating aside, we lost to Clemsin due to atrocious play from Browning, Fuller, and Proctor (i.e., the middle of our defense). The middle of our defense promises to be just as weak next year, and the supporting cast likely will not be as strong and, hence, won't be able to offset this glaring weakness.
Browning may be the biggest hype job in the history of Ohio State football. He's shown promise as an edge rusher and that's absolutely it. Browning, coupled with Fuller and Proctor, lost that game.
People on here, including myself, were saying that Borland (of all people) should play over him and we were vindicated.
Yey. Now we won't lose all our recruits to Clemsin. Well, at least in future classes.
Drennen doesn't like Ohio State and is said to be a scUM supporter. The hateful contrarian was smirking at Coach Day during his official visit.
Pretty? Dude's as ugly as sin.
Now Clemsin is getting jobbed. Karma is a MF.
