I totally agree, Buckinraleigh. Many comments on here seem to criticize Urban, as if these “armchair coaches” know so much more than one of the greatest coaches to ever step onto a college football field. I’m pumping the breaks on Day, at least for now. His 6-0 record consists of 5 very inferior opponents, if memory serves, and 2 Buckeye teams with a boatload of talent. He may very well be a great coach. All indications lean that direction. Let’s see how things go once they’re in the meat of the schedule, and maybe the playoffs. One thing for sure. Day has a long way to go before being put on Urban’s level. Those who disagree need to check Meyer’s head coach history.
Can’t argue too much on Urban’s short yardage calls. J.T. was quite successful with it.
And observing the replay, that tackler had a 15-20 yard lead on Borland, albeit it from the middle of the field, but still giving him a good angle. One of those blockers needed to hang back and take him out. Those who love to trash Borland won’t consider those factors, and choose to tell all how he doesn’t belong on the field. Of course, they presume to know more than the coaching staff.
Yeah.....and both teams were boasting DBU. REALLY????
The SEC love fest continues. I’m surprised Tennessee didn’t climb into the top 25. They nearly beat BYU.
Something to think about. Borland may not be as fast as everyone wants. But when you’re following a convoy of defensive lineman, you’re not running at full speed. In an open field, Borland outruns the tackler. One of those blockers needed to take out the tackler.
And don’t need to trash the players. Saying Borland doesn’t belong here is an idiotic comment.
Yeah.....but a handful of idiots seem to think they know more than our coaches. They should just enjoy the game and stop with their stupid analysis.
Give it a rest. I trust our coaches evaluations/decisions over your idiocy.
Bucks19.....they are always laughable, constantly implying they know so much more than the coaches.
You’ll never make enough points to quiet the “know it alls” complaining who should and shouldn’t start, or how bad the coaches are. These self subscribed “living room coaches” think they know more than actual coaches with years of experience who see the players every day in practice.
I’ll enjoy if/when Fields lives up to the ridiculous expectations.
Such an asinine comment, 43201Indianola. I’d be willing to bet you’ve never been to a single practice, and know little to nothing about Werner and Borland’s progress this year. Saying an Ohio State player is garbage only shows your complete ignorance. Will you have the balls to retract that stupid remark if Werner lives up to Mattison’s confidence? After reading YOUR “garbage”, it’s highly doubtful. You’ve already shown an utter lack of intelligence.
LOL You think that will work? We should be so l lucky.
For those who think Haskins should have started a year early. Take note....... Haskins stated he wasn’t ready his redshirt freshman year. HIS WORDS.
Also, I’d refrain from arguing with Bucks19. I happen to know him very well, and familiar with his career. He knows his shit. That’s all I’m gonna say.
I only wanted an open competition at QB. May the best man win. I’m just not sure that was truly the case.
My mistake, by the way, on that previous text I meant to say maybe Brenden White wasn’t a good practice player. He most certainly did shine when given the opportunity. But again, I really don’t question coaches’ decisions. My football IQ is not very high, I’m sure. I see athletic ability. That’s about it.
I just dispute ANYONE making statements (such as yours), that the best players didn’t always play. You can’t possibly know that. Maybe, just maybe, Pryor wasn’t a good practice player. There could also be other underlying reasons for that scenario. I trust coaches’ decisions, mainly because they see the players every day, for 3-5 years. We don’t. Personally, I believe all players are very good. Some may just not really show their true excellence until they hit the game time field.
And you’re better at evaluating talent, experience, and practice habits, from your living room, more so than the coaching staff, who happens to work with the players on a daily basis? Damn, you most be one great armchair coach!
Based on high school credentials. Time will tell.
Damn......you are one sharp individual, although doubtful bucks19 was making that inquiry.
And what has Fields proven since his transfer???
I agree with the previous posts regarding the transfers, but not your post. Hate on Martell all you want. But quite frankly, his case for transfer was better than Burrow, Fields, and Baldwin. Martell lost the head coach who recruited him, and was apparently the odd man out with his new coach.
Burrow = wasn’t going to start.
Fields - one racial slur from one drunk. (Really?}
Baldwin - wants to be closer to home.
Possibly. But no one knows for sure what happened.
Probably won’t happen. In my opinion, Fields was guaranteed the starting position, behind closed doors, of course. No proof (as of yet), but just my opinion. Two QB’s unexpectedly transferred (not including Burrow), and another recruit suddenly opted out (Mathis). I just feel they might have been told something we haven’t heard. Again, being a bit redundant, just an opinion.
Did you openly criticize the Browns when they fired Belichick? How about the Mandarich draft? And all the others you mentioned? Very doubtful. I’m sure your criticisms came after the failures. Hindsight is 20-20. Fans operate, and form opinions AFTER the fact. That’s pretty easy.
