The last time Burrow and Haskins squared off in a Spring game, the stats weren't even close - Burrow looked far sharper and in command of the offense.  However, Spring games are just glorified practices and what's important is how the QB position plays out on game day.  There's no question that Haskins was the better QB (and I was a huge Joe Burrow fan, as were many others) and it was good to see the situation work out so well for both Joe and Dwayne ....

All that to say, I no longer draw conclusions from Spring games, although one thing was very clear to me following this years version - Garrett is going to be the next Michael Thomas - DAMN that kid can catch !!!!!

It may be a combination of things - move closer to home and also start for a lesser team, since he's good enough to play college ball, but not good enough to beat out the top QB starters at the major programs ...

I don't believe, for a minute, that there's an issue between Baldwin and the coaching staff ....

At what point will Coach Day open up the student try outs for back up QB ?? 

Ah well, into everyone's life, a little rain must fall .... Is there anyone on the roster who may have played some QB in HS, but was recruited as a WR or DB ??? 

All I can say is that our offensive line better never take a single play off this season, or we may be lining up with 2 TE's and a direct snap to the backs ....

All this to say - we'll be fine .......

I don't remember any major crying when Ed Warriner left for the Puke & Blue ??  There was no "....blood in my mouth ....." reactions that I can recall ??

Face it, beating up small schools and getting their asses handed to them, every time they played a decent opponent just wears a coach down (especially when you realize that the man in charge is a flat-out ass clown), so leaving for much greener pastures is just a smart move .....

Nothing changes - another ass-whooping is on the way for the Puke & Blue

Comment 13 Apr 2019

Frankly speaking, I really don't care much about the QB play during Spring games, since timing with various receivers, etc .... often throws off their games.  My greater interest focuses on the play of the O-Liine .... A great running back becomes an average back, when there are no holes and a great QB can't throw very far when he's on his back ...... I'm looking forward to having a look at the replay of the game and I'll be focusing on the line, since we'll go as far as the O-Line allows us to go ....

Comment 13 Apr 2019

By the way, did Ruckert get a ball thrown his way all afternoon ??  Sitting with one of the top TE prospects on the roster and he's been wasted, so far ..... Hope they start to utilize his talents before he bolts to the porthole and heads to a team that actually throws to their TE's more than twice a game .....

Comment 13 Apr 2019

Haven't watched the game (work), but I'll watch the taped version later today.  Interesting stat - maybe someone can illuminate me - 4 sacks on Fields ??  He didn't have many attempts, compared to Baldwin, but Baldwin wasn't sacked (according to the published stats) ..... Was Fields more immobile than advertised, or has our #1 offensive line sprung some leaks ???

I'll hang up and listen ......

Comment 11 Apr 2019

Sigh, at what point will all this phony toughness from "Michigan Men" finally die down ??  Their battle cry has become, "Wait Till Next Year !!", but they seem to be living life like Bill Murray in "Groundhog Day" and it is no longer boring, it's starting to get annoying, like a mosquito buzzing in your ear in a dark room while you lie in bed .....

Please, Coach Partridge, just grab a large glass of "Shut the fuck up", sit back and just wait for the inevitable pounding your Michigan Men will be taking, again, in AA .....

Until the Buckeyes decide to make the TE a "serious" part of the passing offense, they shouldn't expect "serious" consideration from the top TE prospects, going forward.  Many felt that the addition of Coach Wilson in the offensive mix and as TE coach, would springboard the TE position at OSU into a weapon.  While there have been moments, the TE position at OSU is not being utilized in the same manner that the Badgers, Hawkeyes, Lions, Gophers .... (you get the idea) use them.

However, that also doesn't mean that OSU TE's haven't found homes in the NFL, as their blocking is highly coveted, with the odd pass catching ability thrown in ....

No question that Herbs is a Buckeye (remember, "Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye") .... He's been nothing but fair in trying to stay impartial, while still working for the great Buckeye-hater, ESPiN .... Tell you what, after he and his family being literally run out of Columbus by a hoard of half-wits, I'd be a hell of a lot saltier towards OSU and their fans - but, he hasn't been.

Unlike Desmond Howard, Herbie doesn't play the homer card every time he opens his mouth .... Kirk is a stand up guy, a Buckeye and a guy that is a straight up, outstanding commentator .....

He's okay in my books .....

Comment 27 Mar 2019

Hairball continues to be a great source of amusement for me .... "Co-Big East Champs" ...... That's about as significant as "I Ate Rice Krispies for Breakfast", or "We Can't Be Beat - Unless You're A Good Team" .....

Neither a tactician, or a motivator - Just what exactly keeps this "Michigan Man" in his job ??  Does he have some dirt on the university that assures his tenure as HC ???  Whatever the reason, I'm just happy he's where he is and is doing the bang-up job with all those poor kids that trusted him and bought into his bullshit to wear the Puke & Blue .....

God bless the "Albino Dictator" ..... hahahahaha !!!

Hmmm, might want to check that "B" grade for the O-Line to start the season.  Yes, the graduate transfer will certainly be a big help, but a couple of the penciled-in starters are either coming in after healing from injuries, or are still on the limp and I'm not convinced that our line will be at anywhere near the same level as last year's version finished the season.

Last year, the line rated a "C-" during most of the season, pulling up to a "B+" for the final 2 games.  But, 4 starters are gone and I'm not sure this unit will be as good - certainly starting out of the gate.  I'd be looking more of "C-" to start the season, with the hope that they gel much quicker than the line we had last season, otherwise our depth at QB is really going to be tested ......

The potential is there, it just boils down to coaching ....

Comment 09 Mar 2019

McCall is not "fast" - it's unlikely that he'll take a punt or kick off to the house ..... However, if you look up the words, "quick" or "shifty" in the dictionary, it's likely you'll see his picture beside either word ....

Parris Campbell is a "blazer" and nothing showcased his pure open field speed as when he took that jet sweep around the corner against TTUN in The Game.  He pulled away from the CB like the guy was running in quicksand.  Demario is not like Parris Campbell, but I love what he brings to the table.  He's very capable of ripping off runs of 20 - 40 yards but, like Dobbins, seems to get caught on those long field runs .....

That's not to suggest that matched up with the wrong person, Demario can't take it to the house, as we've seen, but he's not in the Campbell, McLaurin or Dixon class of pure speedsters .....

Comment 04 Mar 2019

Like I give a damn about the opinions of "Michigan Men" on ANY subject, let alone football ...... Washington and Mattison can write their own legacies with the Scarlet & Grey and truly don't need any endorsement from members of a defense that gave up the highest number of points that TTUN has given up in their entire history ...... These coaches are now out of a poisoned environment and I'm sure that being around a top 5 program will bring out their best ....

Oh, I almost forgot - Fuck Michigan !!!!!

Comment 04 Mar 2019

I don't care what the little plaque says - Dobbins is not as fast as Weber and it was shown on the field time and time again.  While JK might have been quicker and shiftier, it was Weber who pulled away for 6 points once he got into the secondary and Dobbins was constantly being caught from behind.

Regardless, it was nice to have two speedsters carrying the ball, as we really never lost a step when either was in ....

Comment 03 Mar 2019

As a player, he sure TALKS one hell of a game, but then again, so do all of the TTUN players ..... At some point though, these kids will actually have to back up all that chatter and well, we've seen the results (right, Chase, Kalis, Higdon, etc ....??) ....

One thing has been proven - the "Trickle-down" theory .... all of these ridiculous proclamations stem from their delusional, often shirtless HC ..... Let's go to Africa, but not do any practicing - what's the point ??  We'll come back home after a great, educational trip, beat up on the softies on our schedule and then crap the bed once we play ranked teams.  It's the perfect formula for me keeping my job and recruiting good players (who will never improve during the 4 years they're here, or transfer out) .....
