If things ever go south for the Titans and Vrabel has to leave, I could absolutely seem him coming back to OSU in some type of DC position. Just not overly sure about HC, that's all up to Day's success and/or what he wants for his future.
Uninformed threads? By saying to practice more screens haha. I get it, you don’t like my opinion that’s your right. But you sound like a jackass.
The issue with the targeting rule is its 90% subjective and they can pick and choose when to enforce it and throw a player out. I watched about 10 college games after the OSU/Clemson game and every game I saw a hit that was worse than what Wade did and was not called. There should be two levels of targeting, the first is when the defender intentionally launches them self at the offensive players head or neck area, this should result in a 15 yard penalty and that players ejection. The second is exactly what we saw with Wade, the ball carrier changed their pad level and the defender unintentionally created contact to the head or neck area. I’m ok with this getting a 15 yard penalty but these players should not be ejected. Now I’d use this like a warning and if that player gets another one of these types of targeting at any point again in the year, than at that point they get ejected. I truly believe the 15 yard penalty didn’t kill us in that game, losing Wade for the remainder of the game did. The refs should not be able to decide the outcome of games with calls like that.
Not sure if that would be any worse than trolling 11warriors with stupid comments.
Ha well then we probably wouldn’t have a forum section if the coaches had to put their stamp of approval on every comment. But thanks for the troll comment.
I think we saw more TE involvement this year than we have in a long time at Ohio St. A lot of packages contained 2 TE sets. The issue is we play 3-4 TEs so you’re probably never going to see one name blow up or have a lot of catches in one game. But I think Ruckert could a super star so I agree with you in that I’d like to see him showcased in the offense at some point.
100%. I think with what we see right now this team will have to become a primary passing team. Or at least it won’t be a run heavy/dominate team in respects to the traditional running game and running back position like we had this year. If this team is a run dominate team next year it will be because a good mix of traditional RB plays/Zone read/designed QB runs and the reemergence of runs from the H-back position.
Well I expect there to be an “OR” beside a few names at WR just as you saw this year with Olave and Mack. That’s my definition of starter. He will be in the rotation just as Wilson was this year and Olave was the year before.
And Fleming is going to start as a Freshman. They are saying at the UA camp right now that he’s the best WR to come through there in 4-5 years.
The more I think about this the more intrigued I am a about what Day does with McCall and Gill next year. I think Teague will be good but barring the others stepping up or bringing in someone we’re not expecting, we are going to lack a super star running back and could see serious drop off in the prime RB spot. This reminds me a lot of the season right after Zeke left. Weber steps in as a young RS Freshman and although he was good, we saw a drop off in the RB spot. So what did they do, insert Curtis Samuel. I think although you’ll see a drop off in production at the main RB spot, we have some serious playmaking ability with McCall, Gill and even someone like Williamson. I think we will see more designed play calls to the H-back position like we saw with Samuel and even Campbell. This added with Fields running ability will take the load off the RB position. Not to mention with the superstars playing full time next year at WR, I think this team is a primary elite passing squad.
Everything about your comment is about as far from the truth as can be. Day has come out and said he’s going to hire the “best” and doesn’t care if that means they are only here for a year or two. He’ll just keep hiring the best. And Yurcich wasn’t calling the plays here yet just landed a promotion type job at Texas. So yes coaches will come here either way because they know it will mean opening up larger opportunities for them.
You based his entire career off one game against our defense haha. We also held Melvin Gordon to 50 yards that season and he has done ok for himself. I’m more concentrated on how good of an actual QB coach Helfrich is. Two time QB coach of the year, so he’s probably no slouch there.
So “nope” to a guy who’s proved he can do the job and yes to two guys that have never held those positions..... Seems legit. Let’s remember the mess Urban got into because he promoted and hired based on loyalty and relationships instead of who was the best for the job.
If this kid was a 5 star out of high school, the #2 overall RB and really does have sub 4.2 speed, why would you not bring him in? Are we trying to say everyone we have had a better upside to this kid? Did we not just see an offensive lineman come in from Rutgers and help out this line. If they’re elite then they can play.
4 sacks, 9 TFL and god knows how many hurries. Not exactly what I would call “picked up about every one”. In two games Wisconsin had 10 sacks on this team as well. Our fan base seems to be in denial about how horrible our pass protection was this year.
If those 3 wanted to come back, I’m pretty sure OSU could make it all work out. But......it’s not going to happen
Bad calls are part of the game and I think as a fan you have the right to complain about it. While I 100% agree that OSU had plenty of chances to win the game, you can’t tell me that the targeting and the over ruled fumble TD didn’t change the outcome of the game. The targeting just for the mere fact it took our best cover DB in the slot out of the game. Clemson wasn’t doing much when Wade was in the game, he gets kicked out and they score on those first two possessions. Can’t tell me that doesn’t change things. The targeting rule needs to be heavily reviewed and that doesn’t happen if people don’t bitch about it.
Can’t tell if this is satire or not. I really hope it is.
Let’s be clear, if the fumble touchdown is upheld as it should have been, Ohio State wins. That was a 14 point swing. Also they let Clemson back on the field by calling targeting but the BS part of it was Wade no longer playing. On the very next play they attack Riep deep and get a PI call which lead to the TD. If Wade stays in the game the outcome is also different IMO.
It’s pretty simply, the replay official said you could see the ball coming loose. Based on the slow motion replay that’s absolutely a lie. The receiver took 3.5 steps the balls never moved in his hands until Okudah knocks it out. That’s a fumble 10/10 times and the fact they overturned the call on the field with that BS excuse makes it seem even more fishy.
Well god knows what Dabo told him to get him to Clemson. We know for a fact Dabo is heavily involved in negative recruiting and loves putting doubt in these young kids minds about other programs. Plus once they see the big play house they just built in Clemson it’s game over. To be honest the rise of Clemson in such a short period of time is a bit fishy. If you look back at other schools that shot up like this it has always ended in controversy and sanctions. Wouldn’t be surprised if Clemson was next on this list and Dabo jumps over to Bama when Saban leaves.
Well although Braxton was an ungodly athlete, he wasn’t exactly the toughest guy or built like Fields. I agree with what you’re saying though. I just think Fields running the ball makes this team a lot harder to defend. That doesn’t mean running him 20 times a game but it doesn’t mean running him to open up the rest of the offense and keeping the defenses honest.
In the beginning of the game the MSU Defense was crashing down on our RBs and for the first 4 series (2 inside their 50) the offense wasn’t moving. When Fields started running it completely opened up the offense and was the key to the Victor play. I agree with you, you have to be careful and not get Fields hurt but you can get hurt at any point of any game. Fields running is an undeniable weapon on this offense and you have to use it when needed.
