Sorry if someone else mentioned this but...,

Harbaugh says his two goals are: "Win multiple championships and run a first class program."

Urban Meyer's #1 goal was always to beat the rival. Second was to win championships and build a culture. This is why Harbaugh just doesn't seem to get it and I don't see him ever having success against OSU. 

Dude can't get anything right...

I think a couple seasons of 8-5, losses to OSU and bowl opponents would definitely finish Harbaugh off. But I think it is apparent that he has a lot of rope, could go many years on good performances alone. 9-4 and 10-3 performances will keep him employed at his alma mater in perpetuum.

I saw about 5 drops. JT missed on throwing to Hartline deep throwing it a little short to the outside shoulder when Hartline was looking to the inside shoulder. One was about a 15 yard crossing route to Hunter Joseph where JT misread his speed out of the cut. Another  was an over throw by inches to Hartline on another deep route and the last miss was an under thrown ball while on the move rolling out to his left shorting Hunter Joseph. The rest of the incompletions were drops. All of the drops were balls that could have been caught but were not perfect throws by any means. All in all JT and Hunter Joseph looked really good for having little time to gain chemistry, and the Hartline missed throws I would chalk up mostly to chemistry.

Hunter Joseph impressed me the most of the pass catchers. Hopefully he earned himself a look from a few teams.

I think many people expected him to be a guard in college. I believe the staff considers him to be a guard. Maybe they wanted him for what he is capable of doing and not what he isn't. There are plenty of guys that we recruit that play one position in high school but the staff intends or expects to move once they come here. I do think we are going to need to hit on more tackles in this and next years class because the staff has taken a lot of versatile linemen instead of straight up tackles.

Comment 12 Jan 2018

Marcus Baugh's departure will be felt even more keenly because we will not have A.J. Alexander to replace him. That was one guy I thought going into this season as a back up could have a big impact.

Comment 15 Dec 2017

Still sitting here angry about that Denzel ejection. No contact was made to the other guys head. Denzel's head was to the side and he blasted the other guy with his shoulder and arms. Textbook hit and it was a f***ing fumble, scoop and score situation. 

Comment 11 Dec 2017

I would like to add another name to that, is it possible Jashon Cornell could be asked to shed 10 lbs and transition back to DE, which I believe he was recruited as. If as stated by SP32 we are short on DE bodies, could we see these names or any others transition to DE? 

Comment 05 Dec 2017

In Sheffield's defense it was his first season playing FBS college football in actual games. I think he improved this year as did Arnette, still inconsistencies from both without a doubt but I am confident in their abilities for next year with Okudah and Wade backing them up. I think we should get stronger safety play as well with Fuller looking like a stud and hopefully someone who does not take angles like Damon Webb. Not a lot of playing time available for incoming freshman in the secondary .

Comment 14 Nov 2017

Which is why he comes out in our nickel packages, with Baker and Worley being the two remaining linebackers. I really think the game tape tells the tale as do the stats. When Tuf plays in the middle our defense is better, I never thought Worley should have been the MLB before the season and I really do not think he should be now. I know he is considered a leader but it is not his natural position, put these guys in positions where they are comfortable to be the best they can be and our defense will play dominant. 

In addition I can think of very few linebackers in college that are not liabilities in pass coverage. We have more talent than anyone we play, there is no excuse not to play the best players at their best positions, i.e. Worley outside. It is no indictment of Worley to move him to his natural position. It is really more an indictment of Booker for not being good at his natural position and the coaching staff for putting this line backing corps in uncomfortable spots to begin with.

Comment 15 Oct 2017

Every time I see JT throwing to Parris I am prepared to have a heart attack, it's either going to be an egregious drop or an outrageous touchdown. He has so much athleticism and vision but likes to show off those RB hands a little too much.

Comment 03 Oct 2017

After watching him last year I thought he would probably contribute more than Baugh this year in terms of production even with less playing time. Not to say he is more talented than Baugh I just think he is more consistent getting open and making the right plays.

Comment 06 Sep 2017

What I really love about this 1-2 punch is these guys can both run the exact same plays. You aren't going to change anything or try to get one of them only for one type of  situation, they both have the versatility of an every down back. But they do it with a different skill set which is going to really wear down those opposing defenses.

Comment 01 Sep 2017

For all of you reasonable fans out there... +1 I agree with you, a poor first half but the second half was good from Ward especially.

Comment 01 Sep 2017

To be even more fair, can we recall just a couple short years ago when people thought Gareon Conley was not good enough to be a starter for us? This usually happens every couple of years we have guys people overreact to and in this case it is our whole secondary. If they were not good enough they would not be at Ohio State. We had a really bad first half, WR's, CB's and JT in particular but Indiana has an excellent pass game, the talent and improvements will be there. This fan base is too reactionary at times. Let's all just slow our collective roll and get pumped for a big time game at the Shoe next week. You know the coaching staff is going to be all over each unit making sure they know how they need to improve.

Comment 01 Sep 2017

I thought that exactly when Barrett and he did not connect on a wide open deep ball. The man looked slow and out of shape all night, he looked bigger and slower than f*&^%#$ Robert Landers rumbling into the end zone on the non-fumble. I thought we were really missing AJ Alexander. Honestly I thought the two biggest deep ball misses were that attempt in the end zone to Baugh and Campbell's drop neither of which I blamed JT for. I did think the lack of trust and lack of separation in the first half went hand in hand. Jt is going to continue to improve with this wr group and I think our offense goes for over 500 yards against Oklahoma with 40+ points.

Comment 01 May 2017

I have already seen a couple mock drafts for next year projecting potentially 5-7 first round guys from OSU. Crazy. No way to judge what is going to happen in the next year but we are loaded with talented. If guys make the most of their opportunities we could be talking about more draft records in the next year or two. (And hopefully some championships as well)

If you who art so twitter-wise would also post the Game Jersey's for tonight that'd be much appreciated. They are some sick throwback uni's!

#5 OSU Men's Lacrosse faces off Sunday night at 7pm @ #2 Penn State. It is on BTN I believe. Add that to your schedule I think Penn State is possibly slightly over-rated this season, could be a great night for the Buckeyes! Penn State have arguably the best offense in the country but are allowing nearly 12 G/game, meanwhile OSU has arguably the best defense in the country with about 7 GAA. The game also features two guys at the x with very high win percentages, the freshman Arceri for Penn State vs the all time GB leader for the good guys in Withers. In addition to all that the winner could be the new #1 after Notre Dame lost a close one to #4 'Cuse. 

Comment 09 Feb 2017

Not to jinx us but we are the favorite for a real big time top ten Overall and  #1 DT this year, although he is not one of those 315 lb behemoths. So I am sure we will still hear gripes after landing Vincent about how we can never land a big boy and how Johnson can't pull out of the south. To which I shall say "It's clear your daddy couldn't pull out of the south either." Ha, bad jokes!
