The defense looks like it could be championship caliber especially the more experience the DBs and linebackers get under new coaching. The OL looks like it has potential to be championship caliber and the WR and Dobbins look good too. I think Fields does develop this year enough to make the playoff; to win it we will see.
That is by far the biggest issue
Michigan State? We score 10 points we win that game. Their offense is mediocre at best and our defense is very good.
After today I see Olave as the fastest in the rotation, his blocked punt showed his speed. I think he’s somewhere in the 4.4xs
Maybe Campbell dropped a lot but that’s it.
Looks like Taron Vincent is still out?
Uh Braxton had a cannon, most would agree.
40 yards on a flat rope and you’re saying he doesn’t have arm strength. I could find many more to back my case up. Brax had an arm
Dude the OL absolutely destroyed UC in the run game and Fields had all day to scan through his progressions. The whole team had 2 penalties.
Ill admit the OL scared me after FAU but the UC game put those fears into a coma
Miller had an absolute cannon until the Clemson game ruined his shoulder. He would have been a super star under multiple years of Day
I agree with everyone on it being more important to run good routes and have good hands. Hartline is a phenomenal coach and recruiter. I’m just saying speed is a missing element, not that it’s the most important element. I will say Victor looks much faster than last year.
I don’t think he tripped, I think he was tackled
No tips but following
Is the line still -14? Might have to put some money for OSU to cover.. pretty damn sure they will, hell they might triple it. Our team plays the way they did against UC I see a 40 point victory. If they improve as much as they did after week 1 Then fa’get about it. OSU has to play very sloppy not to cover.
Bold statement, our OL looked damn good vs what I thought was a solid UC front seven. Fields does hold the ball long sometimes. I hope our OL tears them up, they seem mean too.
Like I said I haven’t watched them but they had some huge WRs with good hands 2 years ago. I’m not sure if they have the same talent. Also I just love this defense. This Buckeye squad can go undefeated esp with steady improvement. I see the OL, who already has shown a great game, improving as they’re breaking in 4 new starters. I see Fields improving all season as he develops chemistry with the WR and gains a better understanding of our offense and college defenses. I see the LB play improving all year under Washington; they already look much improved esp Baron Browning. The DBs have a lot to learn in Hadley’s scheme and I think they get better at the Zones and we see improvement there. The DL is already great and hopefully Taron Vincent and J Coop get healthy.. they’ll only improve with Coop and more depth; not to mention Tyreke Smith is still getting back into the swing of things and had a good first game back.
The only thing we don’t have is a super fast WR core. Who knows maybe Jameson Williams develops, dude is a burner.
To me Weber is was better at maintaining his top speed than Dobbins, but Dobbins gets to top speed just as quickly if not moreso. Weber had better long speed is what I am saying.. both have good initial acceleration
Me too, our OL way exceeded my expectations. Bodes well for the season as they and Fields have high ceilings but their floors are coming up every game.
Not a major step up in talent; in the college football team talent composite by 24/7 UCs average player is about 83.7 while IUs is 84.2.
I think our pass defense gets tested just because I see Penix attempting 50 + passes. Teams are going to start to realize we are a hell of a team to try to run on.
Teague is faster than Guapo maybe less wiggle though, Carlos could change direction well.
Dobbins ran a 4.45 at the opening which is electronically timed, almost every player that has been here under coach Micks strength program has run faster at the NFL combine than they did at the opening.
