Grew up watching the John Cooper Buckeyes so needless to say all of these recent wins over scUM have been quite refreshing.

Why would Hurts come here to be a backup (he's not a better option than Fields as our starter) when he's more likely to start at OU? He left Alabama (where he's almost guaranteed to bring home hardware every season) because he wants to start. Odds are he wouldn't be starting if he came here (Fields may not be better than him right now but he has a much higher ceiling).
Comment 19 Apr 2019
Knowing the way Tate is I wouldn't be shocked if he tries to transfer out of Miami again if he doesn't win the starting job there (and right now he's sitting not so pretty in third place after his disastrous Spring Game).
Comment 19 Apr 2019
Baldwin is leaving because he wants to start and feels that won't happen with Fields here. That's the way it is with QBs in CFB now. If they are losing a QB competition, that means it's time to jump into the transfer portal. One guy who is probably real happy about Baldwin's decision is Jack Miller. This all but guarantees he's next in line to take over as the starter once Fields leaves.

Miami would be a terrible spot for Haskins. They are rebuilding from the ground up atm so he'd have next to no talent around him in that offense. Not to mention they are a poorly run organization from the top down and have done a horrible job of holding onto their draft capital behind their rookie deals in recent years. The only appeal Miami offers is the location.
Comment 17 Apr 2019
As long as people aren't on here posting spoilers for upcoming episodes (cough, cough......Reddit, Facebook......cough, cough) I'm okay with the GoT posts. Considering a former OSU player is an extra for this season I think it's appropriate in this case (I only just realized a couple days ago that one of the guys from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia appeared in last Sunday's episode).
Comment 17 Apr 2019
Riep did play some last season (I remember him playing extensively in the Purdue game). As far as the Noah Potter/Zach Harrison comparison guys think of Potter as Sam Hubbard (the less heralded but still talented guy who makes plays) compared to Harrison as the new Bosa.
Comment 16 Apr 2019
Considering how lost Wint looked at times a season ago I'm hoping Grinch's coaching was a big part of the problem and that Hafley and Barnes are about to breathe new life into his game. But one area where he struggled the most in 2018 was in run support (he was absolutely awful at securing the edge from the safety spot). You can't really test how much he's improved there in the Spring Game since the offenses don't really run the ball quite as much as they would in a normal game. Clearly his coverage abilities have improved somewhat.
Comment 16 Apr 2019
Well it's a big reason why I thought the idea of Baldwin starting this season was beyond ridiculous (regardless of what changes the QB room might've gone through). Baldwin hasn't played in a live-action game in almost two years and atm that's a problem. You don't want that kind of rust in your starting QB going into the season if you can avoid it (people will use JT in 2014 as an argument that reps don't matter but JT was also really bad in his first two games in 2014 before he finally started to settle down and play with more laser-focus).
Comment 16 Apr 2019
To all those back when Martell was still here telling me reps aren't important (when it comes to Baldwin) well I won't say I told you so. I don't regret losing Martell at all (especially given how horrible he's looked so far at the U) but I expected Baldwin would have struggles like this since he hasn't seen any live action reps in almost two years now (Fields I was a little more surprised by since he did play some at Georgia last year but he's also still learning Day's offense). I think Baldwin will be a great player for us eventually but reps are extremely important for him. Even if Fields wins the starting job in 2019 I hope Baldwin sees extensive mop-up duty time so he can get his feet wet.
Comment 15 Apr 2019
He quit based on a business decision though, not because he was giving up on his teammates and the season. To me there's a difference between the two. The one thing I do wish Bosa had done differently last season was that he he should've waited until the bye week to announce that he was leaving OSU (announcing it the week of the Purdue game I suspect highly affected the team's morale going into that matchup and as a result bad things happened on the field).
Comment 14 Apr 2019
I certainly hope the author is right. However Kaleb just announced last week that he's out his name into consideration for the 2019 NBA draft. I wouldn't be shocked if he's still undecided atm (for all we know there could be issues between him and Holtmann since we don't know what Kaleb's suspension was about).
