JTB had an amazing season in 2014, and threw the ball extremely well downfield.  His passing downfield was worse later in his career.  If you had told me in December 2014 JTB would never pass that ball as well again I would laugh at you.  I'll never forget his throw to Smith at MSU in 2014 at the end of the half, just perfect

Passes of 50 yards don't get more on point than that in perfect stride.  

Sadly I believe a lot of it is due to Herman leaving.  Some of it may be he never got his confidence after the ankle issue

I think the commentators made too big of a deal on Dobbins' blocking.  If you're a RB you are there to get a hand on guys and slow them down.  You don't block like WRs or OL.  He did his job on almost all those plays and Fields' held onto the ball too long. 

That's my opinion at least

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Because early in a game you set a scheme and see what happens.  After the first few series you adjust to what is happening in the game.  

OSU has done a good job of making adjustments during the first half this season.  We may have been fine and adjusted in the first half complately if we hadn't had that one awful tackling display on Gordon with 1 minute left.

I will jump on the thanks TB fact, but what about Thanks Urban.

How the hell can you go into that game in 2016 and not be a better HC and really believe in the offensive gameplan.  There is no world where our offensive approach to that game was good enough to win.  

I blame Urban more than his assistants for that.  He's the HC and there was plenty of time for him to be fully integrated into the gameplan 

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Schematically, Clemson is more like OSU than WIsky formation wise.  Wisky plays a 3-4 scheme with attacking LBers because they don't have the talent to trot out studs on the DL annually.  Clemson does have studs on the DL, so they may trust their DL to get pressure with 4.  Not sure that will work.  If they bring 5/6 then it certainly could with Fields' tendency to try and make things happen leading to negative plays at times

Exactly.

Utah has 8 total 4* kids on the team.

Puts them below Illinois in talent

Comment 05 Dec 2019

If I recall...they are very good friends correct?  Would make a lot of sense to have the same commit day if they are going to the same school.

Hopefully the school i root for too 

Comment 05 Dec 2019

There are only 14 guards ranked at 4* guys in the entire class.  OSU has a guy just outside that.

You only need 2-3 guys to hit from any OL class to be really damn good.  If we hit with 2-3 every year, you will have a great 2 deep 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

The only problem is I feel like that 3rd and 1 often has a FS or a hold somewhere that turns it into a longer down

I understand the call, but sometimes getting that 1 to set up 3 more plays is beneficial too 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

The only argument against that is Day has been good about using his weapons.  maybe Ruckert is a huge weapon next season, as we don't have KJ Hill in the slot.  

Maybe it's Olave, Wilson and Ruckert starting at our 3 "WR" positions 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

Because in the 2021 threads earlier you indicated that OSU was falling behind Bama/Clemson etc. because we weren't recruiting enough good DL guys, which isn't true.  2020 was always going to be a small DL class, and 2021 was always going to be bigger.

People haven't forgiven you for your comment about recruiting in a prior thread likely

Comment 03 Dec 2019

You worry a lot about national recruiting when OSU has been recruiting very well nationally

We already have a 5* pass rusher committed.  We are rumored to lead for Adeleye from Texas who is another 5*.  We lead for Jahzion Harris out of Brooklyn and are in the top 2 for Payne who is another 5*.  We may not land all these guys, but that is pretty damn good if we get 3/4 of those and then 1-2 others 

Edit: and Hall who OSU's staff seems to like a lot and will prob be a 3 tech 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

Maybe the staff cooled on him for another reason; maybe they didn't like something about him on a visit, or something someone they trust said to him.  Maybe he didn't want to be at OSU as much as the media made it seem he did. Maybe UF/PSU outrecruited us for him

Comment 03 Dec 2019

He was the best OL at the Opening last year, so I have faith he can be effective.  Very long arms (6'11'' wingspan) on a 6'4'' body.

Regardless, Latham and Christman at the least are tackle bodies.  Tackles are the harder guys to build, so getting 2 studs early would really be building blocks for a class that looks to be pretty damn good 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

My thoughts on this:

1. If they wanted LSU to have a chance to leap over OSU they would have left LSU ahead of OSU last weekend.  By putting OSU ahead of LSU before the Michigan game, they were giving OSU 2 top 15 teams (1 on the road) with LSU having 1 top 10 team on a neutral site after that point in time.  When they did this, they created a "wider gap" between OSU/LSU following this weekend since OSU beat a top 15 team on the road by 30

2. I think if OSU wins by 17+, they will be #1 barring some crazy scenario like a 59-0 LSU win 

Comment 25 Nov 2019

Saw this a couple hours ago and was going to post but was on my phone and not signed in so I didn't.  People know I'm as high on JSN as anyone on this site.  He is extremely productive but doesn't have the "wow" measurables.  

Comment 23 Nov 2019

I mean if you don't think OSU will be better in a dome where speed is maximized i don't know what to tell you 

Comment 23 Nov 2019

OSU may be a different team when it's not raining and 40 degrees in a dome.  We saw that in 2014.  Fields/Dobbins gave up the ball a lot today.

FOX43 News in Harrisburg is reporting that Penn State will be without starting center Michal Menet due to an undisclosed injury on Saturday. The redshirt junior has been the picture of consistency for the Nittany Lions this season, anchoring the offensive line in all 10 games.

Bad news for the Lions 

Comment 22 Nov 2019

I'm fine with this.  He broke an NCAA rule and admitted to it. He was suspended for two games from that violation.  

I don't think he has character issues and he is a great player obviously.  However, if they have in the past not allowed anyone who has sat games to be up for the award, then Young should be no different (I don't know if that's the case of course).
