from Canton (now Nashville)

MEMBER SINCE   March 15, 2014

Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, former AD at Arkansas, who was head of the NCAA playoff selection committee for 2014 and 2015 seasons. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

We just ran a hell of a gauntlet including a much improved ttun.  What we know about LSU and Oklahoma defenses leads me to believe that we have seen tougher D’s in Wisconsin twice and Penn State, and have handled them well. (We don’t know anything about Clemson.)

BUT we have three weeks to either : scheme better pass pro, focus on hot reads, OR just maybe, more QB mobility (Fields has been hampered for a month, and three weeks will help him heal up)

I think it matters most because of the locations of both games. If we’re #1 we draw ATL. Most of us will drive there.

then if LSU has to play Clemson, there’s a much better chance that they lose the semifinal than if they have to play Okla. The important thing there would be that LSU would be out  for the championship game rather than playing in a home game in New Orleans !

Can’t wait to see what Day has cooking for Jim Leonard’s blitz up the middle every other down.  A return of the mesh crossing patterns that gives Don Brown nightmares (although we only ran that a couple of times Saturday) ?

JK underneath the LBs ?

bubbles to K.J. hill ?

Comment 06 Dec 2019

I have been holding my breathe for three years worried that DPJ would have a break out against us. Maybe it’s because we wanted him badly and he went the other way (a la Kareem Walker).  I always thought that he was talented enough to transcend the below average QB play of Rudock and Patterson and that he would pull a Mario Manningham or Tai Streets.  But somehow he never lives up to the billing. 

the only billing he lives up to is his consistently bad attitude. Go ahead and flex when you make a TD catch against Indiana bro.

i don’t think that anti Beck/Warriner sentiment was prevalent until 2016.  2015 was when the head coach was pimping his book and swapping QBs from game to game and between the 20’s vs red zone. That disaster was all the HC doing. It was 2016 after we were blanked by Clemson that everyone wanted Beck/Warreiner out as Co OC’s.  But no one wanted Warriner out when he was O line coach.

Comment 04 Dec 2019

I agree that earlier in the season he was ranting, but over the past Mo th or so he has been very realistic. If you listen to the True/False questions get asks of his guests, they talk about the importance of football to the campus and culture of the university. It’s very honest and interesting.

Comment 04 Dec 2019

No this makes no sense. Two coaches from their side come over to our side and all of the sudden the slow inept LB corps from the worst defense in OSU history turn into a murderers row ?  Washington has developed the LBs just fine. Our old Oline coach that none of us wanted to see leave after the 2014 championship is now their Oline coach, and he’s not developing players there ?  It’s gotta be something else.

I agree with you but Hail to the Victors seems to be a consensus #1 fight song around the country and outside of Buckeye nation (you tube, bleacher report surveys etc)   And , although it represents a bulls-eye to Buckeyes, I’ve heard many times over when I ask “why do you like Michigan?”  the answer has been, I liked the helmets as a kid.
sad but true

Glad you brought up Hutchinson.

to the 11W staff:

what a wonderful production it would be to create a montage of all of the recent Skunkweasel post game interviews, culminating with annual blank stares and mutterings of their head coach ?

you’d have a one stop shop of comments like Chase Winovich “it was a mirage”, to Karan Higdon, to Jabril Peppers. You could weave in tweets from Jalen Edwards and clips from Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson. You could show the hundreds of shots of now NFL TTUN alums who annually wear Buckeye jerseys to practice after losing bets to their  Buck  alum teammates  e.g. Tom Brady.   This would go viral if you could compile it !!!

Comment 30 Nov 2019

I was driving to Canton from COL yesterday and was listening to Laurinitis, and then Carpenter and Rothman. They were all picking 31-21 or 28-17 - ten point stuff.

how the hell is this team that beat #8 by 11 after gifting a 17 point swing, going to only beat ttun by ten - they lost to PSU only a month ago. Oh, and speaking of a month ago, we absolutely strangled a team that beat ttun, by what, 38?  So what, after spring ball, after fall camp, after 7 more weeks, all of the sudden Shea Patterson had a spread offense epiphany ? Please ...  they beat an overrated ND, and then beat Rutgers, MSU and Indiana. Neither of those teams can stop the run.

I’m with you Kevin, 42-10 sounds right.

Comment 25 Nov 2019

Oh yeah - my bad. I guess I would have had to remove my anti-Alabama glasses to see that !

it’s a function of living in Nashville (which is a province of Alabama in case you didn’t know).  There are more script A windshield decals here than there are those of Titans - and it’s not even close.

Comment 25 Nov 2019

 The TE , who will be playing in the league, had 6 catches for 40 yards and no TDS.  The D gave up two drives essentially, that garnered 7 points. (The other ten points were scored off the offensive fumbles inside the 25 yard line.) The second drive I am talking about was when they penetrated to about our 20 before the Hilliard pick. 

maybe Stan was critical of the D who was gashed after the two fumbles - but the offense didn’t give them a chance to catch their breathe in that stretch. Instead of a great offense being the best defense, our O was too busy playing hot potato on very predictable play calling. If Stan has a beef it should be with the offense.
