I was surprised at Fields comment that he takes mostly online classes. I don't have a problem with that, but was curious if that is typical. It has been 25 years since I graduated college, so obviously things are different now.
Was just going to say that Oden using the app will probably break it.
BH7, your math appears to be slightly off. Based on the numbers you show by year, Bama's total is 100, not 148. Still more than tOSU, but not as big as you state. I agree though that tOSU ranks right up there with anyone based on average ranking, not totals.
How about Ryan Shazier?
Zero wins? Isn't Day 3-0? Ok, so he wasn't technically the head coach at that point, but he was the acting head coach.
I actually think Muhammed has a lot of upside. Very good athlete, but needs consistency with his shot. Earlier in the year, he seemed to be one of the few that could actually go one on one if needed and create his own shot. Just was not consistent with it.
There was a stretch mid to late second half where we had two back to back positions with wide open three pointers, uncontested, that would have had the lead down to 2. A couple of possessions later, another uncontested three that would have tied the game I believe, had they hit those earlier threes. This could have been a much different game down the stretch. We did shoot very well from three over all though, but Houston was just a better team. Still proud of the team and looking forward to a great year next year.
Plus how many of those missed threes tonight seemed to go in and out. He could have easily had another 6-9 points.
Was White just not a good practice player? I have heard some players are just that way, don't practice great but when the lights come on they become a different player. If Coombs were still here, I am sure he would have had him fired up during practice.
Down here in Alabama my kids got the day offf from school today due to the threat of snow. We ended up not getting any snow. My work actually closed too. Of course we don’t have the equipment to deal with it if it does snow.
I am not down on Baldwin at all, but I keep seeing the phrase "Hand picked by Day" when talking about Baldwin. Wasn't Baldwin a late add to the class after somebody else decommitted? So he was "Hand picked" out of what was left in the class at that point. Again, not down on Baldwin at all and hope he does well. He seems like a good kid with a good arm. It is just that the phrasing makes it sound like if all the QBs from that class were lined up, Day was going to pick Baldwin over all of them.
Would he have chosen to come back if Fields doesn't transfer in and Tate is the QB? I am thinking he doesn't as the QB run would have been more in play then, according to Tate. I don't believe Day wants to run that offense though.
I was going to post about his HS highlights as well. I know they are just highlights, but pretty much all that is shown is the deep ball. Can he throw anything else? I haven't seen any highlights from his limited action at Georgia, but what kind of throws did he make there?
Does the white out in any way actually help? For instance, does the fact that the opponent will be in white jerseys make it harder for the QB to see the receivers? Just curious if there is an actual advantage to it.
With the new kickoff rules, there may not be as many returns, making that playing time not that much of an impact. That would be a shame as that is how freshman can get on the field early.
He is bigger than any of the lineman in the above video.
I would not remove a conference game. I would remove one of the non-conference games.
My first thought as I was seeing score updates on that game was, ok North Carolina is beatable. Then thoughts changed to uh-oh, we are going to get their best. Will be a good measuring stick though to see where we really are, which we probably need.
Both were track stars as well!
Does Joe being an Ohio HS star really draw more interest from the fan base? Just asking. I live in Alabama so I don't necessarily know the feeling of the local fan base. However, I do know that we have fans throughout the country and it may not make a bit of difference to them. We just want a passing game.
I am actually going to this game! Been a fan for a long time but have never been able to make it to a game. Coming from Alabama (yes, enemy territory). Kids staying with my parents and we are driving up on Friday. Already have a room booked near the John Glenn Columbus airport I believe. Any advice any of you can give me? Parking, what time do we need to get there, etc.
They have been very good when the QB hands the ball to our talented RBs.
Do you think with Barrett being so close to owning so many more OSU QB records as well as B10 records is playing in to Meyer not willing to consider benching Barrett. He is just 2 TDs away from the B10 record isn't he? Maybe after that record falls, Meyer would consider a change? Not likely, but just a thought.
