The Predator is back baby!!! I relish the opportunity to watch him play 5 more games en route to a National Championship!
That was quite the challenge. And took a long time on my phone. Really not sure I did a great job. It’s very subjective. I didn’t know which stats I was going to value over others until I started and who knows if I applied my own standards fairly across the board.

I honestly do not know how it works but I have been blessed to attend the Fiesta bowl while OSU smacked their opponent and I would say Arizona is home to a lot of fans from the Buckeye State so that would always be my preference. I think in Arizona we would essentially have Home field advantage whereas in Atlanta, we likely would not especially if facing a Southern team.
FWIW I had a friend that started college with 58 credits... basically starting freshman year as a Junior. Not typical obviously! Many of my friends came in with between 15 and 30 credits though.
So assuming he’s started with between 15-30 credits and started a semester early he should have completed 15*6 in addition to summer classes 10*2 with credits coming in around 20. Totaling 130. Enough to graduate in any Undergrad degree...
I apologize for the mathematics. This is obviously based off of many assumptions but just trying to show how it’s not all that unbelievable, these days it’s how it works.
It’s great encouragement hearing from all of you guys. I recently visited the doctor in August and weighed in at 227. Which was a shock for me because I’d never weighed over 215 before. In High School I was around 158-165 very in shape, playing varsity and club/aau sports year round. I’m 5’10 as well, and yesterday I was down to 209. My goal is to get to a fit 175 give or take 5 lbs. Just watching what I’m eating and drinking more closely as well as working out 3-4 times a week. Keep up the hard work fellas!
It's got to be Schiano, they were a good match. The best they have been in decades was under his guidance and Rutgers was his most impressive coaching stop.
I just want to add that after watching just a couple of Florida's games I think they are the most overrated team in the country. I'd pick Oregon, Texas, Iowa all to beat them Neutral site. Heck even Boise State could give them a run for their money. Love the thread BuckeyeCrusader.
1) Ohio State
6) Louisiana State
7) Penn State
10) Notre Dame
Any chance CJ takes a medical redshirt? At this point its looking like he is gonna miss half the season. I saw him on campus the other day, I wasn't looking for it but I did not notice what his injury is.
59-0 incoming? Michigan doesn't look like a ranked team. Wisconsin looks like they should be top 8.
Coan looks like the best QB Wisconsin has had in a few years. He's no Wilson but much improved over Honingbrook.
Xichigan's run defense is an embarrassment to football...
Side Note: I'd love to see guys like Dobbins, Etienne and J. Taylor actually have a shot at winning the Heisman.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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 .
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.
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.
