The only thing I kept thinking and couldn't get by is:, like this year's first team, Archie didn't get a lot of second half yards in many games. Most of his total yards competition played four quarters.
Not sure he could. There's that Shelly thing he may not be able to overcome!
(Only partially in jest.)
I - O!
Still nearly a whole week to wait. Will get to campus early! Another chance to show them just how good this years Buckeyes are!!!
Cinci has posed a threat, just not to OSU!
Disagree. There will likely be players they will be interested in playing in all four quarters. They'll just have to wait longer to draft some of them!
According to Skully, there is a first half spread of 34.5. How about Coach runs the score up to 35 - 0 in first quarter and then sets the first team completely? Start second team at the beginning of the second quarter and the third team just before the end of the third quarter. Given last week's results and their Maryland score (yeah I know all about the foibles of using transitive properties) got to believe the Buckeyes would still cover.
Might help mitigate health concerns, and rest folks for next week!
Wasn't there an issue with massive debt also involved? Maybe buyout from their conference? Or was that Maryland?
Did B1G pay off some of this?
Only vaguely remember some issue.
Reasonable assessment, has to be at least a possible strategy! Depending of course on what the prospects are for next year at each position of need.
Powers has real size with plenty of time to grow. Have to like Ohio State's chances being from Marysville!
Yep, it's my own music from my running around days. Puts me in a good place. Nothing like old time rock and roll.
Thanks B298 & TMac.
Not likely evenly distributed by position, but that's enough for full first, second, and third string plus multiple kickers. punters, and long snappers. Would expect all to play if healthy! (Saw Saunders was traveling.)
It gives some sort of satisfaction to see most all of the players excel in these game. And th real game time has to be invaluable on many levels!!!
Bring on the game!
Looking forward to seeing the whole game tomorrow of course, but especially the second half when the starters are on the sidelines. (If they play that long.)
Isn't the traveling squad only 65 players? That would mean there isn't even a full third string available, Oh My!!!
Odds are pretty good for Chase Young to play at a high level, hall of fame level! The young man has always appeared driven to succeed. So the level of effort to achieve is there. Probably a great bet!
Add another congrats! Working hard to improve is contagious. Keep it up!
If this level of effort is one of the improvements, and they continue to learn Coach Holtmann's system of hard nosed defense and organized offense this will be an incredible season! Just like this was an incredible game!!!
Good lord, that was fun to watch!
WOW!!! The first two games were hard to watch at times. Th slow starts were difficult, but the team kept working hard. So I expected improvement as the year wore on. But in no way did I expect that start. That was incredible! So much fun to watch! Lots to still work on, but it sure raised expectations. And it's impossible not to love the effort most of the time, on both ends of the court.
And last week, and last month, and pretty much as far as I can remember!
Should be a very good game to watch this week day! Then an amusing one come this weekend.
In the meantime, any news about when the best football player in America will get word on his future?
Guess I should have used the "/s"!
Thought that was obvious, guess not.
Should be a good game based on the favorite status! But Andre Wesson will be missed. The young Bucks will need to play up to their potential tonight. Should also be fun to watch!
Don't they worry this may hurt recruiting? Been reading frequently that so many recruits get homesick early in their careers. That many days away may cause them to think twice about choosing OSU!!!
The young man has a whole bunch of hustle. He is not afraid to mix it up in the middle. And he has improved each year too. He will be missed tomorrow evening!
For sure hope he gets what he is looking for.
But as a fan, it's been disappointing to not get to see what appeared to be a most outstanding recruit perform at his optimum. If that is even approached, he would have to be a most valuable contributor next year.
Best of luck for his future, whatever pathway he chooses!!!
Thanks for your service. Pray you're able to put that all out of your mind, if not completely, most of the time.
Those of us that did not serve should give thanks regularly for those that did! Both for the freedoms preserved and for the fact we do not have those memories to deal with.
Thanks many, many times over!!!
