I was thinking about checking out the website to see the new coaches but wasn’t sure if it was worth it. What do you think RyanWB?

Comment 19 Jan 2019

Careful what you say. I’ve said the same thing in about 5 different threads and got downvoted into oblivion. We will most likely get 4-5 4*-5* CBS in the 2020 class. I’d rather have 5* true freshmen in 2020 than 3* redshirt freshmen

Apparently I’m the only one that sees this but Holtmann is getting severely out coached. Yes, the players aren’t great, but how can you not know how to attack a zone on offense??  We look abysmal against any team that plays zone. On the times we DONT turn it over, we can’t even get a good shot. That is 100% on coaching.

I respect your opinion but I’m glad you aren’t on staff deciding who to recruit. We finished 13-1 and 3rd in the final poll and fans still aren’t happy. We wouldn’t finish top 10 if 60% of our roster (at least the guys we rely on on saturdays) was from Ohio

And let’s not act like improving Washington State’s defense is some heroic feat. The PAC 12 is by far the worst power 5 conference and I would place it well below some other Group of 5 conferences in terms of offensive firepower. I give him credit for improvements, but let’s not pretend shutting down rotten offensive teams is anything close to shutting down high octane offenses that we will need to beat in order to win conference and national championships

I think we need to give credit where credit is due. Haskins made it to 50 touchdowns for the year, Paris Campbell made it to 1000 receiving yards for the season, and Isaiah Prince made it to 1000 career penalty yards. All 3 of those stats are incredibly impressive 

Comment 02 Jan 2019

One of the smartest comments of the year. I’ve been saying it in almost every coaching thread, and getting downvoted religiously for it lol. But it’s absolutely the truth. That’s why I refuse to call for Schiano, Davis, or Taver’s head until I know for sure which coach decides who plays. I still think it’s Urban that decides. Let’s be honest, Vince Lombardi, Bill Belichick, and Nick Saban would all look like horrible coaches if they had those 4 guys on the field. And add in Pryor and Wint early in the season. I’m not saying those players aren’t any good, but they cannot be starters on a team with National Championship aspirations 

Comment 27 Dec 2018

Sounds like he’s gone but I hope he’s not. I think he needs to adapt his scheme a little bit, but he’s one of the best recruiters in the country. If he leaves, we will lose some guys and probably lose others that we lead for currently. 2 years ago Buckeye fans were saying to pay him whatever he wants to stay. He was that valuable. Yes the defense sucked this year, but I think he deserves another year. 

Comment 23 Dec 2018

Interesting question. I still think there’s a chance IF Fields chooses to come here. Ohio State was his leader at one point and then we weren’t all of a sudden. I never saw a reason why things changed, so I just assumed it’s because we didn’t throw enough (JT was still our QB). Obviously that has changed now so maybe there’s a chance. 

Comment 17 Dec 2018

Again you’re talking about football. I’m talking about a normal college athlete. At those two schools, he won’t be thought of as the hometown hero and be constantly interviewed by the hometown media. He would be just one of 85 guys. Also, Ann Arbor and Happy Valley are college towns where it’s easier to “get away”. It’s been widely reported by players and recruits that those football programs  are more laid back than OSU. Those are the things I’m referring to

Comment 17 Dec 2018

Been saying this for awhile but I will repeat since it’s so close now. The decision for Harrison comes down to this...does he base his decision on football or on a normal college experience?  If it’s football, it’s clear to him and everyone else it’s Ohio State. If he wants the normal college experience it’s Michigan or Penn State. I hope he picks us but if he doesn’t, I won’t really care because how good will he actually be if football isn’t his top priority?
