Part of the problem that year was they used single back sets and a statue of a qb. I love Haskins but he was no threat to any defense with his legs. So every defense just focused on the one rb. If they would've used more 2 back sets with both Weber and Dobbins it would've been more successful.

That 2017 recruiting class was sick and I could only imagine what it would've been like if Darnay Holmes parents didn't pull one of the most selfish moves I've ever seen in recruiting. His raw talent alone got him drafted in the 4th round (he really wasn't "developed" at UCLA). We could've had 3 corners go 1st round from the same recruiting class. I bet his parents are kicking themselves right now, especially seeing the difference in the contract values between him and Arnette.

I don't see Campbell as a Dobbins. He reminds me of Antonio Pittman. He's not the biggest or the fastest but he's a beast to bring down. The 1st rarely brought him down. That was how Pittman was. He's too often forgotten by Buckeye faithful because of Beanie Wells being in the backfield with him late in his career but he's still a good back.

I think most of them landed in good opportunities. Campbell has Luck at qb and will play 8 games in doors every year. Weber has a great opportunity to be Zeke's backup and get some reps behind possibly the best line in the league. Dremont gets to lineup on a d line where the focus is on Von Miller. McLaurin is going with Haskins and as referenced in the post no established #1 wr. Anywhere Bosa ended up was going to be good for him.

Teague looks like a complete back. They used him all over the place. Inside, outside and on swing passes. He's going to contribute this year. I thought Crowley looked more like the power back. He just lowered the shoulders and drove the pile a few times. Potter impressed me too but I think he's buried on the depth chart. That's a deep position on this team. There's a few positions that look set for years to come.

This is BIG. Pun intended. This is a guy that knows his role too. We've needed a true rim protector for a couple years now. I'd love to see Giddens come in too. It would be awesome to have Giddens/Diallo at the 5 and then Wesson/Liddell/Young playing the 4. Wesson would be a matchup nightmare for most teams at the 4. Especially with another big to keep the double teams at bay for fear of an easy basket.

They looked more natural. They played looser and mor in rhythm. They weren't outstanding but you could see vast improvements in them. Harrison almost picked one off by reading the qb. They didn't give up big runs and for the most part kept their containment like the safeties. Teague bounced one outside for a td but that'll happen from time to time. The wr also did a good job of sealing the outside that let Teague bounce it.

They were using the te on a lot of crossing routes and outs. They made a few catches. They missed a big one right in front of us. Ruckert ran a seam route and I think it was Chuganov rushed the throw and threw it too high. It would've been 6 easy.

My son and I were sitting right behind that endzone. We saw all of the recruits when they came out. I spotted Cavazos and Miller 1st. They were both recruiting hard. Miller just kept rotating who he was talking to every couple minutes. It was our 1st experience in Ohio Stadium and we loved it. The reaction when Zeke walked in was insane. At least 20,000 people started chanting "Zeeeeeeeeeke".
