Most will never say anything bad or indifferent about OSU or a player here and more so a Ohio kid. Hillard has the injury bug he can't kick but what about Harris who can't unseat Victor who has improved but still not a solid player in my eyes.
Not many looked but those horses could of been injured too if you watch them.
Maybe a dumb question but why is there a coach's poll? Do they have that much extra time to watch a lot of college football? If so they better spend more time watching film or recruiting or better yet family time.
I posted the same one time so many people want to go but can't get a ticket. I wish ticket master etc would stay out of selling tickets.
I had shit seats for the MSU loss of the Coopers team and remember a young man around 24 or so kicking the Hell out of 20 or more folding chairs and surprised he didn't break a toe or foot. I wondered many times how much that cost to put up and take down those bleachers in the south stands. Now that they are no longer very lucky they never collapsed like rides do at carnivals and traveling fair rides. Talk about a law suit if that ever happened and injuries or worse. Lastly at nearly 100 years old how much life is left in the old Shoe and where would a new home be built if that has to happen some day along with the cost to rebuild. I wonder if that day ever happens I bet it will be no more than 90,000 seating. Most new stadiums go smaller like Cleveland and others. To this day I walk around after the fans filter out and sit in seats from different locations and the worst I ever saw was at the very top on both sides of the press box you can only see half the field and there are a lot of seats not just a few maybe over 100 or more. I asked a person one time how can they get so many people in when they have less seats for the number announced he said everyone is counted ushers police consessions etc. Not sure how true that is but interesting.
Did anyone here anything about Wisconsin's best cover guy who left the game and didn't return.
If that game wasn't at PSU they may not of won.
What needs to be done all fields need to be green and once Boise's time comes up to replace that rug the NCAA needs to tell them it can't be any other color but green. For other trickery like laying down I have no issue on that with coaching staffs so large in numbers that should never be a trick and someone should see that before it happens. After all once you hand a ball off isn't it trickery to hand off to another or throw a pass off the hand off? With that sort of thinking how did the forward pass last so long in football. Maybe the hidden ball trick should be out lawed in baseball too. Another is laying the ball down after the snap?
Not so sure about that it takes 4 years to clean out the trash when the coach's before you recruited so poorly. He now can say these are his kids and they have played hard for him this year in each game I watched. So they believe in him and this win is huge for them and kids will give him a look if they finish strong and make a bowl. These teams in the B10 that fire their coach's in the bottom rung don't have a lot of talent when the new guy comes in. Tress had a shit load of talent Harbaugh and Franklin did too when they took over. That's why I like the way Minnesota Purdue and Illinois are headed. They have good coach's and the talent will start to trickle in but will the coach's take better jobs is the question for each. Teams like Iowa MSU and maybe throw in NWestern will have great teams every 3 or 4 years. Indiana Rutgers Maryland will always be hit and miss. Nebraska will be on par with Wisconsin soon and both be hurt with getting enough elite talent jmo.
Taylor in my eyes is not the rb that PSU brought into the Shoe in 2017 and has far less talent at the skilled positions that PSU brought in with him. Wisconsin might have a better D than PSU of 17. So at the end of the day unless we give Wisconsin all the points we gave PSU we will be fine. Lastly our fans need to show up and get into the game early and hold the home field advantage.
The down side of this is we may lose a guy that was on the cusp and jump to the league. I think with the max at 27 for this class might not be high enough and our kicker may not gray shirt? Then again I'm thinking we get Stroud a rb or 2 and a dl.
On paper Whiskey is what they are every year and that's because they can't recruit very many game changers in the skill position's but recruit the big road graders that are old school Woody Hayes and Minnesota type guys back in their hey days. We have to much speed and game breakers. If we stop Taylor their done put a fork in them. 48 - 17 or 28 - 17 OSU
I normally don't like reach's on the o line like a young man in this years class. I personally feel Jones is much different. He is athletic for not a big man but huge man. Played center on there hoop team and could run the floor plus has played a small amount of football. I like to look at the negative side of things because there is always enough positive being said here. How ever I predict a All American here before he is through at least All B10 at the least for Mr. Jones. He was a great sleeper pick for us and hope I'm wrong on the sleeper in this years class at o line.
It was been reported many times we wanted him on defense and that's his best position. Not so sure whats the big deal legacy kids playing here when so many others out there much better. Arch's son should of never been here his best offer was a academy either Army or Navy. That was a sweet hart deal and took the spot of someone else that probably would of contributed some place. Although he was pretty decent on the sp. teams. Lachey's son had his shot but was beaten out by a better talent but at least it was a Ohio boy to sooth the pain. Styles had his own plan but like Sinatra sang he did it his way. Now he is ND's best receiver in this class and more than likely would of never cracked the two deep at wr here so why the gloom. Wants to be a big fish in a small pond. Styles dad grew up and played in Farrell Pa. not like he was Ohio born and raised I just don't get it..
The sad thing about that no matter what you do someone will be screwed around one way or the other. If I don't leave work til 4 or 5 then go home change and maybe travel a bit to a game really screws things up.
Andrew please don't take this the wrong way but are you or fellow reporters in on everything that's going down on rb's or for that matter all recruiting to be able to say that for certain? For rb I doubt there is a silent but going with out a rb in this class would be a great idea if they can't get one that will help down the line. After Dobbins leaves there are a lot of kids that played running back on our roster and all of them are good including Hooker Gill McCall Teague Crowley Chambers that's 6 how many do you need? Teague probably the only Bell Cow but nothing wrong with duel backs splitting the carries. Why take a rb that is on par with what we have that isn't any better than what we have just to add a number. I would load up with 2 in 2021. Some experts say the rb class is pretty thin this year and we are already near the lower tier. Lastly not rb but no one seemed to know about Stroud having a offer and he is one that maybe in this class as a silent or maybe no one was allowed to report that also surprised how recruiting info gets leaked out when coach's are suppose to be quite about talking about recruits.
Good idea but travel comes into play with further away schools and kids have to eat after school. I agree numbers are down at least in my area for the reason you mentioned and others. Massillon is no longer a member of the big schools because of population. I remember watching them home and away for years and buying a ticket in advance to get in for the Warren Harding rivalry. They played in Warren this year and I bet not even 7,000 came to the game and Massillon always use to have 10,000 no matter who they play but not any more. Never been to a Massillon vs McKinley game do they still sell out? For the record Warren seats about 14 or more and Massillon around 20 I believe.
It will hurt but not 50% most dads better go see their kids do what they do or suffer in the bed room for a month or two. You can't put OSU before family or can you lol. TV knows they will loose folks watching in Ohio but the ratings will be through the roof out of state and over all to make up the difference by a long shot. Moving High school games to Saturday not everyone can do that as they share stadiums with other schools in town or next door. Howland plays Friday night but Warren JFK plays at Howland's stadium Saturday night. Being old school I never liked the Thursday night games either I think the ACC was doing and I mentioned a hundred times bye weeks both teams should have a bye together that play each other. I want a level playing field and the best team win. Wisconsin fans I'm sure are happy we get a extra day to prepare for them.
Couldn't agree more and after a week of looking over the first half of the season position wise maybe a couple have lost their starting gig and no better game to see what player B can bring to the table than at Northwestern. The meat starts this Friday and the run for the roses begins.
Sorry reading all the post there is more that want Borland sitting the pine over playing no matter who we play if we go by most opinions on here. Just opinions
Yes to slow to scare anyone
One positive is Northwestern is a team Borland should be a better fit as they are not really fast and this years offense seems sluggish kind of like Borland sorry Tuff. I don't believe their is a rule to announce players that won't play at least meatchicken held off on a player last year and a qb the year before so why did we tell the world???
Know for 100% fact he wasn't the kid you would want your daughter to bring home. A real piece of work and whats sad too is the city of Warren is sinking away too. I lived a 1/2 mile from the high school growing up and I get sick when I see the old home stead and the football program is not what it once was either. Good for the young man if he turned his life around but he had no other way to go but up. Lets be honest on the football field he was awesome so good anyone would want him so why is he at Kentucky and no big offers came his way.
Dion Sanders played at the U I think? Will he be pushing this young man in that direction? Should of listened to your nephew back in the day Mr. Holmes. Speaking of the transfer portal I found it very interesting that we look closely into that but there could be a down side to that system. Most of you won't remember many years ago Illinois hired a new coach and tried to build the team with JUCO players. Well they got better but not enough to keep the coach very long and cut out that way of recruiting. I think you could wreck moral and chemistry by going to much JUCO and the transfer portal when kids you recruit and the time comes to be a starter and you get knocked out by the two types I mentioned above. To much of that might not be a great Idea. I was glad to hear Day say he wants to build the program with high school recruits.
