They need coaches. We see raw talent every year early on and then jackall when the team faces the meat of its schedule. The coaching staff is straight trash.
Feel like the program has had 0 change since they got rid of Matta. Theres very little development and improvement from younger players. They seem to flash early and then do nothing the rest of the way whilst other programs in the B1G adapt their game plans. OSU doesn't seem to develop or grow throughout the year, they just act like what they did before matters and works. Give this staff 1 more year to make them a worthwhile program or get rid of them all and start fresh.
Going to be an awesome addition. Cant wait for him to be a part of an incredible first 6 weeks to a season and then watch him regret his decision when January comes around and OSU is a bottom feeder in the B1G.
If OSU loses to NW, its time to really consider drastic changes. Holtman is obviously safe, but wow what a disastrous season this has become. The team cant even make lay ups consistently.
The portal is mainly for media and the public. Any player that is transferring likely has already had conversations with other programs prior to making their decision. I think the portal is beneficial to lesser sought after players to announce their openness to transfer and allow them to find new programs that fit them better than trying to reach out to programs directly.
Nobody is paying them, they are simply allowed to make money off their likeness/autographs.
Team isn't going anywhere this year folks. The creme will rise to the top. OSU will finish 4th or 5th in the B1G, be a 3-5 seed and fizzle out in the second round or maybe the sweet 16. They don't have the scoring talent or elite big man to contend. Some solid early wins but they are crap against tough fundamental teams. Team is still a year or two away from being anything special and thats a good thing because Holtman is a hell of a coach and will bring us a final four soon.
if you don't think ESPN has its fingers in every aspect of college football, you are an idiot. I am seriously surprised no investigation has been launched to show how ESPN corrupts college football
Excellent player. Got screwed by shitty SEC refs and ESPN collusion. Go make some money kid.
Georgia is going to be the dominant force in the SEC soon enough. Clemson is still recruiting insanely well and the ACC is trash. This was OSU's best chance to establish any sort of dynasty and they failed. Replacing two primary coaches is going to be challenging. We will see what next season has to offer as all of the key pieces of the defense are gone. I think OSU runs the B1G, but it will look more like Tressel's run than any sort of national dynasty.
Two things for OSU to win: Apply consistent pressure to Lawrence and force him into bad throws that can result in a pick or two, and keep Justin Fields protected and healthy. I think both of those will be very difficult for OSU to do. Young hasnt been able to impact the games lately due to double and triple teams (and no calls on holding from refs). I think the same trend continues and OSU will need to have someone else be impactful along the DLine. Fields gets hit a TON in every game and Clemson has elite speed on defense that OSU has not seen this year. I expect Fields to get knocked out of the game at some point. Chuggy time steps up and makes some plays to keep the game close, but its not enough. I think Clemson is a little overrated as the ACC is absolute garbage and they havent faced a team like OSU, but as the game goes on Clemson will figure it out and pull away in the second half. 42-17 Clemson. They go on and beat LSU due to LSU's defense giving up huge plays. Clemson 38 LSU 21.
Only way OU beats LSU is if LSU is a complete fraud and benefited by playing trash overrated teams in a conference given too much respect by the media. If LSU is what LSU looks like, theres no chance OU beats them with that D.
OSU is going to get smoked. 42-17 something like that. Offense hasn't been that sharp or consistent lately and that won't come close to cutting it vs their D, which is somehow underrated this year. OSU LBs won't be able to do anything in coverage. Etienne is an absolute monster complimented by one of the best QBs in the country. Ill be shocked if OSU makes this an end to end game. Losing to Clemson isn't that big of a deal as I wouldn't give OSU a chance against LSU either. A great season and a lot to build off of with an excellent core coming back next year (at Oregon looks scary as hell right now). All in all, a tremendous first year for Day and OSU should win the B1G again in 2020.
Team came into this game cocky. They deserve this. Could get blown out here.
worst start ever
WRs need to step up. Cant let Fields run every time we need a play
trash preparation, this team is gonna get rolled by Clemson
This game isn't going to be like last time. Badgers are hungry and will make adjustments.
Its a good hire and Meyer would get the Boys over the hump with that Roster. Meyer is a commander and not someone to be a passive buddy type coach like Garrett. The Boys roster is elite and its clear they need someone to push them to excellence. Meyer is a an expert on how to do that. How ownership and NFL roster logistics impact the way Meyer coaches is up in the air, but I think on paper is a brilliant move for both sides.
OSU 35 Wisconsin 17
Jackson should get some consideration for 1st/2nd round. He has been awesome and is All-Big Ten
If OSU wins by two scores, they remain #1. If OSU loses, then I think OSU falls to 4. A close OSU win and LSU blow out, LSU is #1.
OSU without Fields is just a good B1G team. No chance to beat Wisconsin without Fields.
OSU 31 Wisconsin 24.....make no mistake. This game will be close. Its statistically nearly impossible to beat a second team two times in a row in a single season.
and now its 42-37...yeah, lets lose to this team. Why not?
