Ganking the D coaches from harbaugh was pretty cold blooded IMO. After that though, I can't think of too many other instances.
They'll give him the option. A lot of former paper tigers had nice, solid senior seasons, when they realize its now or never. I still think he can contribute also. But he does seem to have less mojo now for some reason.
I kinda hate all the comparisons in sports, but for some reason we all can't help it, can we? So, I'll throw my hat in the ring and say Fields has the size and speed of Stan Jackson with the arm of Joe Germaine. Stan Germaine? Joe Jackson? (Too many of those as it is tho!).
Cornelius Hoying? Terrell Tomczak? What I most want is JT Krenzel or Cardale Krenzel!!
Don't forget...Jim Lachey was one of best lineman in OSU history....he is an alumnus.
I really like the Dobbins thing today. I think he's gonna be a fine back this season.
Thats a catch. Sick!
Nice throw, just out of bounds tho?
This D looking better and better and better
Dobbins had a nasty move on the first drive. He's looking better and better too
By the GAME, Olave seemed to be our best deep threat IMO. Dixon was damn close, but Olave seemed like a young Terry Glenn, possibly the best deep threat in OSU history (Damn that's a doozy of a competition there, with Warfield, Chris Sanders, Holmes, Ginn, Galloway, etc!)
I think we are probably going to be better at receiver this year than we were last year and likely already are. First off, 40 times can kinda be thrown out: speed is relative in that someone who is deceivingly fast can burn you more than someone who is blatantly fast, plus pad speed is more important than track speed; also, catching the ball and being where the QB wants you to be is clearly more important. Anyone in the world would trade Wes Welker in their prime or Steve Largent, better yet, Cris Carter as another, over any 4.2 guy we have had in the past few years.
I think Parris was deadly getting it around the line of scrimmage, then getting some blocks, then got better and better at catching downfield and running routes; more confidant in those areas especially, likely with a big aid from Hartline. Mack and Victor are gonna be better than they were a year ago. KJ Hill is actually a better receiver than Parris and I kinda wanted him getting more playing time than Parris anyways, though I loved Campbell getting as many touches as possible too, ironically. Gill or McCall can do a pretty good job of pretending to be Curtis or Cambell. Both slower than Cambell, but shiftier and possibly better ball skills to start. I love Olave, he will be better this year as well. Wilson is something unique and great addition. Plus then you have Ruckert out there. One of my last worries right now is the wide receiver room...with that being said, those are some talented dudes that went pro. But the guys playing were forcing those guys to share!! That is a GOOD thing right?
I likey what I hear!
We actually hired our rival's coaches, who promptly came in and concurred that both Tuf and Werner are studs.
They should really look more like Ogre in Revenge of the Nerds after he barely beats the girl in the arm wrestling competition.
Why does Harbaugh have a whistle on...and the dude us running down the field with it in his mouth. Just a weird, weird man.
Dobbins was a little impatient last week, but the fact of the matter, is that once we went up 28, we put the playbook away. With no playbook and the D keyed on Dobbins, I think it frustrated him, but also brought out the critics. But this week, we open the playbook back up, and after a few carries, you could see and feel Dobbins get a feel and then Boom, he hit a big one outside, then Boom, hit the big TD. He, like many great runningbacks, get better after a few carries, then better after a few more. I love him as a receiver and would like to see him used there more aw well. I'm excited for his season still...I knew we put away the good plays after we blew up in the first quarter.
You could drive a truck through the holes Zeke ran through too! That's what we like.
I found it interesting that in both losses, Purdue and Iowa chose to fake kicks, thus, going from 3 TD blowouts to 4 TD blowouts. That was likely due to a few things, but Urban running up scores seems to be obvious. I couldn't believe when Purdue got away with it. After the Iowa one, I knew they would probably fake one on us.
I think they want McCall ready for the UC and Indiana games, whereas they can see more from the other guys in this game and against Miami. That will likely sort it all out. I think they really like McCall, and those games will tell both if he can be relied on, or the other guys can be relied on, and also how well Gill plays the H. So a few things will sort themselves out, but I think they hope for pretty big things for McCall to have announced him already as backup. I could be 100% wrong though, and perhaps he just got injured again. My gut and initial reaction is they want a strong running game, and need more than Dobbins.
Barry Switzer is on line 2.
I hated this idea. I'd rather have the original ones.
Being from Dayton, I'd like to see the black unis dedicated to Dayton victims, first responders and Dayton/ Ohio united. If that happens, 180 degree me to loving these!
The Urban Meyer classes were great. Period. If there was a weakness in the program, it was that most of the athletes were gone after a few years. We got a year or 2 less out of most players. I felt like we needed a few more 3 star guys like AJ Hawk (Who doesn't of course) But those guys tend to stick around. They haven't had it in their heads that long that they are ready. Plus, they aren't sure how long their NFL career will be, so the extra year to get the degree is crucial. I really , really like that we have balanced the recruiting methods of Urban with the blatant need to have more seniors in the program. I love the balance.
Very very rarely do Olympic champions or the best in any Martial art go into MMA. They rarely have anything to prove as they already did that. MMA seems to get guys that were very close to the top. John Smith, Cael Sanderson, Logan Stieber, Dave Schultz, Jordan Burroughs, etc. kinda stick to what they are best in the world at.
50/50 I'd say. He is making a ton of money right now and could run any college he wants to when he is ready. So he could make a fortune and mold men for the future. If his faith is super strong, I'd guess Olympics til coaching with maybe a few fights sprinkled in.
The last post, in Spanish, is by far my favorite. Great to hear love from below the border.
Everything you mention, only mentions where he'd get taken this year or next? That only matters to the bank account in the early portion of a career, if its successful. I thought the draft should have been an afterthought. Money should not have come before preparation. IMO.
With that being said. I love the kid and think he'll do fine either way. But this was very predictable. Well, this potential possibility is anyway.
