I think the return of Cooper this week is huge it will be nice to have a veteran end who is not going to be caught up field and will know to keep contain and turn Clifford into the middle and backside pursuit
I think you are more likely to see the same plays but out of some new formations just to make TTUN spend time on them. Also just because you see something new doesn’t mean it hasn’t been practiced since the spring it just might not have been needed.
I was planning on going to Muskingum then my senior year on the last play of the last game I tore my ACL and MCL. I had surgery scheduled for the following Tuesday, Monday I got a call from a low level coordinator from Muskingum I thought to wish me luck, I was then told I was no longer going to be a member of the football team and that if I happened to receive a playbook by accident could I return it unopened on my dime. I didn’t know what to say so I just hung up and sat there shocked and angry.
I believe the hires on the defensive side of the ball have been nothing short of spectacular.
Penn State is a big game not a rival. If PSU becomes a middle of the pack 4 or 5 loss team for an extended amount of time the excitement of beating them will fade and it will be just another game. The Buckeyes have been dominant since Tressel took over with our actual rival, anyone on here except that to be just another game this year or ever?
I mean if you are asking are they building actual traps in Piscataway? Like to kidnap the players? I would at least consider it if I were them
I am just glad I am around to enjoy this dominant Buckeye era and to witness TTUN trying to catch up with Northwestern for conference championship game appearances.
I have to admit I was wrong about Fleck, his coaching style would not be for me and I thought it was a gimmick but I was wrong. He might not be my kind of coach but he is a solid coach that seems to care about his players and has been a winner everywhere he has been so far
With the way this team is winning and getting so many young guys on the field it can’t help but boost recruiting at every position. I am starting to think this Day experiment might work out
Fields goes for a little over 250 strictly because of big plays. I am calling for 4 100 yard rushers and one of those will not be Fields. I said Rutgers would score over 7 but I forgot about the travel roster limitation and so the Buckeyes are not going to be able to play as many as last week so that will probably be enough to hold Rutgers to a field goal at best.
Is it wrong that I have such a negative view on basketball recruiting that I would rather see the Buckeyes stay out of the muck and more of recruiting the top of these rankings. I don’t mean this to disparage any recruit or the coaches just a general statement
If I would have been talented enough to receive an offer from Ohio State when I was in high school it would have been a no brainer but if I would have released a top 10 and had an Alabama offer I would have listed them for family reasons and then probably would have listed the 8 schools that looked the most impressive or the ones that I had the best relationships with.
The fact that Hafley is on this list primarily for turning around the defense from last year’s dumpster fire with basically the same players should disqualify Grinch for any best coach award
I honestly think he was looking for a flag, not that the hit warranted one but because he just hit the QB harder than a NFL QB has been hit in almost a decade
Reading some of the recent replies to that tweet as in last 5 minutes saying Chase Young might be ineligible for the rest of the year.
Which is wonderful news coming off the bye week
I just don’t think he has anything left to prove to himself or anyone else and that is great for a man that wants to retire, now if he feels like his legacy is in question angry Urban might make an appearance but hopefully in the NFL because I don’t want the Buckeyes to run into that buzz saw again lol
If ND wins out they are not going to fire Kelly. I wonder if the narrative change from USC has more to do with Urban letting it be known that he is not going to take the job and less with the USC president not really wanting to hire a 3x national champion, hall of fame coach?
I have stopped watching ESPN unless they are airing a game I want to watch and that is not only because the way they choose to cover or not cover the Buckeyes or the B1G in general but because they bring up issues not related to sports but because they have a huge financial stake in the success of certain conferences but still try to pretend they are neutral. They are not a charity they are a business, a poorly ran business but still they are in it to make money and only a fool would think they do not use their massive amounts of influence to guarantee they make more money.
I am not on Twitter so I do not know how to find anything on it but I was reading an article about Urban to ND and Shelley Meyer pretty much shut down the idea of Urban returning to coaching soon. I realize things change but I don’t think people understand how much it took out of Meyer’s health and quality of life or how Mrs. Meyer is not ready for it to happen again
Cowherd has said he roots for the best story and likes to see teams with big fan bases win. He also said in that segment after saying that Chase Young is the size of slot receivers in the SEC that he refuses to talk to Bama fans so I believe he was making fun of SEC homers and trying to annoy Klatt
You know how to keep from getting ripped off on Airbnb, you book a hotel room. Just because it is new and cool doesn’t mean it is better. Now please get off my lawn
I understand that a lot of factors go into a kid picking a school but if I was a DE and had a Buckeye offer seeing what Chase Young did today would be hard to ignore. Larry Johnson is a genius and if I was serious about being a pro I don’t think I could pass up being coached by the best
I don’t think the Buckeyes need any help they win they are in all that would be in question is the seeding
I honestly couldn’t come up with a scenario that leaves the SEC out, short of bagmen all over the south find religion and bare there soul to the world and every SEC team is affected, even then they would probably just put Alabama in for shits and giggles
