With it being a big recruiting weekend, I’m sure, a night game against a top 5 Penn State would really look good at night.
Still think it would have been fun to see him and Martell battle it out. I mean if Matell transfers now or later he would still have to sit out a season.
Baldwin seems like he is a smart kid and has a good head on his shoulders. Yes in hindsight 20-20 wish he probably could have gotten more reps in practice if he was able to after his injury. Next man up they always say and and I believe Baldwin is more than capable of handling it.
Don’t forget about L’Christian “Blue” Smith. At 6’6 205, I bet he has put more weight on, he could be that hybrid tight end receiver type.
Harrison this cycle then Breese and this trio next cycle! A guy can wish right?
No questions about Urban’s health? Thought he would get a least one since that has been the talk of the week.
I’m sure Bret McMurphy will concoct some story about Urban Meyer becoming the next Cleveland Browns coach!
Sad part is this will be our biggest recruiting weekend. Gaxe Day will be there and all the glitz and glaxmour. Hope the kids get all caught up in that instead of the gaxe. I try to be a realist and xichigan is a good teax. I hope Ohio State can prove xe wrong.
Same song and dance! “ We had a great week of practice and I really think we turned a corner.” I’m sorry to say there is some really good talent on the defense. I think they are being put in some bad positions and the coaching staff is wasting that talent. I will not be surprised if Ohio State comes out as underdogs against xichigan at home.
Watching his catches I noticed a few things.
1. In the deep crossing route Haskins looks like he did at the beginning of the year. He his him perfect in stride and let’s Olave work his magic.
2. Not sure if anyone else noticed on the last game some of the seasoned receivers when running a curl route broke off before the first down marker. Michigan State was a good tackling team and because of that we were not able to get a first down. In Olave’s case he starts his curl route AFTER the first down marker. He catches the ball after the first down marker securing the first down and then goes on the defenders. Just shows the kid has great field awareness and that hopefully continues and the kid has a stellar career at Ohio State.
I think some of these defensive kids see the writing on the wall with Ohio State’s defense coaches. I think these kids know there is going to be a shake up and the only one for sure is staying is Johnson. That only hurts Ohio State with the kids that want to enroll early such as Harrison.
Kid played his tail off! Why not give him a start and get in the rotation? He is a good change of pace from the others and can cover well.
Not to be a Debbie downer but Nebraska dropped A LOT of passes. This game could have gone the other way easily. Not sure I would say the defense got any better.
Money makes the world go round. Kid has a bright future ahead of him in the NFL. Yes it sucks but I give him credit for making probably the hardest decision he has faced so far in his life. All good Bosas must come to an end.
Tussey I agree with you there. I just thought since we have interim Brian Hartline coaching the receivers with little coaching experience James would be a breath of fresh air. Yes he is an analyst and that doesn’t make you a good coach but he has played the game recently unlike Davis. I think it wouldn’t hurt just to hear him out and see how he would or wouldn’t fit in as a coach. He has said he has had aspirations to coach so the itch is there.
Why not bring Little Animal in to coach the LB’s? You have a well known alum with NFL experience.
6 foot 9 inch 350 pound junior! Holy heffer Batman!!!
My issue with all this is when the Compliance office gets a call from the Powell police about ZS why do they in turn call Gene Smith and Urban? The compliance office is the ones who Gene and Urban report this stuff to. So if the compliance office knew why didn’t they start an investigation then? Now just like Whitlock said Gene and Urban are falling on the sword for the university.
Anybody hear if Eddie George has anything to say?
If true then we will not have the media makeing the call for Drake. At least the board will have some say and not have the media persuasion that Drake tends to use as his scapegoat.
Sooner we free Urban the sooner he can work his magic on Rogers if he is thinking of pledging to Georgia!
I agree Haskins and Martell both looked great. Just shows how dangerous BOTH of them are! A lot of experience in this receiving group should be fun to watch!
If I were Gene Smith I would be scared of Urban. Urban is not like Tressel and is going to take the heat for Gene. Urban has his own reputation to uphold and if he reported it to Gene about the Zach Smith incident then it is on Gene. Urban right now in my eyes is the one being punished. In the end once it is all said and done Gene Smith should be the one who people take a hard look at.
ESPN bashing The Ohio State. If was any SEC team you would hear how the SEC is always picked on.
All these awards for this great slob and he is the one of the most humble person you will ever meet. Very well deserving of a fine man and a class act for the university and the football program. Give them hell in the NFL!!
