Wish him the best. Always thought he looked good when he got some PT. Will be.a starter at all but about 10 teams.
Agree. A Super Bowl ring would seal the deal with any DB in the country.
Rooting for him because he seems like an awesome person, but he might turn out to be an Alabi type - dependable backup. He's huge, but the downfall is that he's a little slow. The way Day and Stud are recruiting, going to be hard for some some of these 3- and low 4-star guys to see the field. Of course Jonah Jackson was a 3-star, but he had a chance to prove his ability elsewhere.
Not a Titans fan by any means, but wouldn't hurt for Combs to wear his Super Bowl ring when doing in-home visits :)
Friends and fellow Buckeyes,
If you follow Eleven Warriors, you are an avid fan. This site is nothing but spectacular. I love reading the stories and insightful comments. I've bled Scarlet and Gray since the '70s, enjoying the "electricity" in the air when my dad and uncles would watch the Bucks under Woody. I've also been an avid fan of CFB, shunning the NFL for a game that is much more exciting, where teams can improve easier with annual changeover. However, at midnight on Saturday, every Buckeye fan now knows what Saints fans felt last year due to horrendous officiating (not just talking about the "no catch," but there were multiple "missed" face mask and hands-to-face penalties by the Clemson O-line). When systems are in place that provide less than ideal results (i.e. replay system; targeting rules), it removes the joy because the outcomes are negatively affected. What could make replays in the Playoffs better? Maybe replays are agreed upon by three officials, one from each Power 5 not represented in the game. Majority rules. Just guessing Fuller might have had a scope and score in this improved scenario. Nonetheless, trying to watch other bowls today and just completely disinterested in the game. Honestly, I still loved watching CFB after the 2016 blanking by Clemson because we got whipped on the field of play. But this one feels different. Not sure if I will ever watch the game the same again. And just in case any of them are reading this comment, SEC officials are dead to me :)
Exactly. Also, Young was MIA, getting beat by Lawrence multiple times along with LBs consistently out of position. We should have a strong front seven next year, but will need to make up for a new staring four on the backend. Offense should score like the ‘98 Bucks. Just hope the D will be good enough to get it done.
I’ve wrote here before, the Fiesta Bowl was lost on an unnecessary 4th and 4 call against PSU when Fields got hurt. Hope the coaching staff doesn’t put the most important player on that position next year. It’s one thing if the game is on the line. Totally different when the injury occurs on a senseless play.
Going to say this forever, the game was lost on two plays. First, 4th and 4 against PSU when Fields had no reason even having the ball and got hurt. Second play, roughing the punter. Worst call in college football is a punt block call, especially when the refs are “leaning” Clemson.
Lol! Probably said, “they can fire me now, but I’m going to give B1G some love before I die and I don’t care what the ESecPN execs think!”
So shocking that the line moved up to 2.5 after the wins by MSU and Iowa yesterday. Thought I was going to wake up to a pick ‘em line. ESecPN keeps pushing the narrative and everyone keeps drinking the Kool Aid. Go Bucks! 45-24.
Absolutely bad play call on fourth down up two scores against PSU. Of course you can sprain your ankle walking the oval, but could have avoided the injury on that play. Anyway, an 85% Fields is still a top five QBs in CFB. O-line needs to do a better job protecting than they did against ttun and Wisky.
I think Day needs to focus on someone who is a great recruiter. We currently only have two top 100 guys (Phillips and Ransom being 47 and 76 respectively) on the defensive side, and Hafley recruited both. This ranks as the worst defensive class since 2010 per 24/7.
OK, Let’s say Hilliard, Saunders, McCall are all gone and more spots open up. What recruits fill their spot? Doesn’t seem we have any high level guys that we are in on. If Bijan wants to come, we make room. Otherwise this class is closed with Stroud. Saunders was voted a Captain. That means something. I would bring back Saunders, Hilliard and McCall. We all know other guys will transfer who’ve never seen the field.
Just take a look at how many players from Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania go to Clemson. Plus, better to take out Clemson and follow that up with a win against the SEC champ.
I love this matchup. No doubt in 2014 after taking out Bama. Same this year. If we got OU first, whoever lost the other matchup would claim OSU would have lost that matchup. This way we leave no doubt!
I’m guessing we’ll have a few more passes that go more than five yards downfield this time. If Clemson puts 10 in the box like 2016, look for Olave to have a record game. Gave up 31 last time because the offense couldn’t move the ball more than 3 yards and our D was worn out. Will be a different ballgame this time around.
From a recruiting standpoint, much better to play and beat Clemson and Oklahoma. Plus we owe Dabo a butt whipping coming :)
Good thing AP and Coaches polls are irrelevant today. Sure we'll get all the first place votes after the Playoffs :)
B1G Network is a good spot for any B1G fan. I've boycotted SECPN for nearly a decade now. My Saturday's have been much less angry ever since.
I guess after the OSU/PSU game, SECPN decided that having Gameday at a game hosted by Fox might not be a good idea. ABC hosted the Minn/Wisc game, which is why they chose that location. A loser network if you ask me. Fox getting the primary games is best thing for B1G. Now the conference has someone to equalize some of the SEC banter.
I get it, I lived through the Cooper years, but honestly, if half the team gets kidnapped and we lose Saturday, we better win the National Title. If we don’t, that means a loss to ttun AND to either Clemson or LSU. Sorry, but Dabo has a smackdown coming his way too, no matter the result Saturday.
Agree. Plus we would chose to play them in Atlanta and maybe do a little recruiting :)
Seriously, what recruit sees how these players enjoy life and each other and don’t want to be a part of it all! Love seeing these young men have fun and enjoy the moment.
Love it! Whenever I travel to central time, absolutely LOVE the early starts!
Agree that this hurts during the season, but the positives outweigh the negative. First, FOX does a great job pumping up B1G, something the conference needs to counteract SECPN. Second, when you have a good game, the highlights are shown all day long. Give this another year or two and you will start to see recruiting start to improve for all B1G schools.
Thanks. I always look forward to this game. PSU was a great addition to B1G.
