Mantis and Montana just nailed it. Everyone’s demeanor is different on the court. Everyone’s effort looks different. It’s disrespectful for Holtmann to act like Duane doesn’t care or isn’t playing with effort. He just doesn’t like his style, Duane doesn’t look the way Holtmann wants him to.

Instead of adjusting to his player, coach is going to try and jam a round peg into a square hole and then blame the peg when it doesn’t fit. The exact thing good coaches don’t do. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if Washington’s name goes into the portal. He could avg 18/game and make the League if he played for a coach that liked him instead of hated him. This is Holtmann’s worst coaching job. We were #2 in the country a few short weeks ago, now we’re tied for last place in the Big10 with Northwestern LOL!

Seems like Duane is the first player he’s ever benched. Even the druggies are right back in the lineup after they serve a game or 2 suspension. Holtmann loves putting Washington in the doghouse for some reason. I don’t get it.
He’s our most dynamic offensive player. A guy the offense should be built around instead of looking for every possible reason to bench him.

Florida State or Miami. Those are the 2 schools that make the most sense in my opinion.

He already knows the sunshine state inside and out for recruiting purposes, and the ACC is ripe for the picking. There isn't a competent football program in that entire league outside of Clemson, SC.

If Urban takes his talents to Talahassee or Da U, he instantly makes the Seminoles or Canes the #2 program in that conference. Then he can do what he does best: create a culture obsessed with chasing the top dog (Clemson), and doing everything in his power to knock the Tigers off the ACC mountain top.

If Urban Meyer resurrects one of those 2 struggling but proud football programs in FLA, and he is somehow able to win a Natty at a third school...  his legend will be cemented as one of the top 3 coaches of all-time, if not the best.

Good choices for class of 2018 recruits. I hope they all step up and succeed. 

As for 2019, I look for Jameson Williams to explode onto the scene. Dude has legit rocketpacks for wheels and has already demonstrated nice hands and toughness. I think another full cycle through the off-season program and gained familiarity with the system will have him poised and primed for a breakout 2020 season. We already know there's a ton of WR reps opening up next yr with the departures of Victor, Mack, & Hill.

This is the dumbest headline I’ve ever seen. So dumb I didn’t even bother clicking the link (which is all they are after obviously).

Stupid clickbait won’t get my traffic. Atleast do better than this if you’re desperate for clicks.

GR means they’ve graduated and/or are currently in graduate school. So it’s not appropriate to call them a freshman or sophomore or junior or senior.

Eligibility is a separate issue (you get 5 years to play 4). So if you are able to hit the books and graduate in 3 years, you are able to play 2 seasons as a graduate student if applicable (Joe Burrow, Gunnar Hoak).

Last 19 minutes? They got absolutely housed for the entirety of the game, minus the 4 min right before halftime. They were in a hole when a drive was kept alive on 3rd & long with a cheap PI call. They went on score a TD, kickoff and then benefited from a McCall fumble on the doorstep that led directly to another cheap score.

Take away those 14 points GIFTED right before half and this was a massacre from the beginning with no signs of a struggle.

It’s not 1998 anymore guy. Recruits want to play in big time games for big time programs. They don’t care what time the game kicks off because they know all the games are on tv no matter what time they start.

And actually most players and coaches prefer the noon games because they get to wake up, get into their game prep & walk-through, then get after it! If you don’t believe me just watch any of the hundreds of clips on this site or letterman row with Buckeye legends talking about how night games are frustrating because you have to wait around all day and not get too hyped too early, while waiting around all day in the hotel for gametime. 

Personally I believe FOX trademarking the noon time slot is brilliant.

Yesss! Extremely glad to hear the Buckeyes will be taking on Penn St at noon instead of 8:07 PM.

We are trying to run the table and go into the playoffs as undefeated Big10 champs. The last thing we need is to battle Penn St till midnite the week before we prep and travel to Ann Arbor to face our rivals. The difference between getting PSU out of the way early vs playing them in a night game is almost a full day lost or gained of preparation time heading into Rivalry Week.

Play Penn St early, dominate them on the field. Dominate the time slot and tv ratings for the day. And get the players in the ice tub and the coaches film study and gameplanning for TTUN.

Anyone who wants to slug it out into the wee hours of Saturday night/Sunday morning, trading punches with the Nittany Lions under the lights before we put it all on the line in the season finale up North needs tho their head examined IMO.
