Texas has only one healthy RB.
Who does Bama have this week? The sisters of blind?
Take away the first 4 drives where the WR was way open and no one touched Fields on the run, let's not crown Fields as being great yet. He never threw a ball on the run. He never threw a ball into a tight spot. He didn't make any great throws. IMO he still has a lot to prove for me to get all excited.
Can't believe that Werner is still in there. Don't we have anyone better?
Haskins came in the Michigan game and made some great throws. Yes he started well. The WRs were wide open. He didn't make many great throws into tight spaces. He didn't have any scrambles and throws. I also thought he made the wrong decisions on a few options. He has the physical tools. Just not throwing out the massive praise like you.
People let's curb our enthusiasm here. Fields still has plenty to prove. I'm not 100% he's the real deal. I thought he was a. It slow in getting rid of the ball. So he doesn't have a quick release and didn't seem comfortable making the difficult throws. Let's give it some more time here!
Still not getting any warm fuzzies about Fields. IMO he should be better than Haskins with his high rating. Btw I can't see college football being happy with these transfer rules. It creates a lot more havoc than relief.
First of all I hope Fields is awesome!! But let's curb our enthusiasm a bit. He couldn't outplay Fromm at Georgia. So ask yourself why if was that good? Its like Georgia won any national titles with Fromm. Fields will be able to run. No doubt. But until he throws balls in game, reads defenses and makes accurate throws, we don't know how good he I'll be. And the fact that he didn't win the job until recently and didn't play great in the spring game, makes me think he's got a lot of room to improve. To warrant the hype he has to at Haskins level very soon throwing the ball. Fields is the highest rated player to ever play at Ohio State.
Recruiting recruiting recruiting! We already lost a few. For 2019 we are 18th! Not acceptable for Ohio state! Stop the bleeding and add on, otherwise we will not stay at the top of college football!
That's two years in a row that we laid ane egg that kept us out the playoffs. What happened and why? Had a great win last week but man that Purdue game was a stinker as was the Iowa game the year before. Can't overcome those losses.
Have to say I was wrong, wrong, wrong, soooooooo wrong! I loved being wrong! Boy was I wrong! Never been so glad about being wrong!!!! What a beatdown!
Omg the author and many of you fans are delusional! We should have lost last year if they had a decent QB. It's one thing being optimistic, it's another being delusional! Come on buckeye fans, we can't win them all! And they are a better team in so many areas! Many things will have to go perfect for us to win. I usually can't sleep when the buckeyes lose, going over every big play of the game. But seriously this is a year when we most likely won't pull it out. My prediction, buckeyes lose 30-13. Call me what you want, but I'm a realistic fan. We just have too many issues and a group of coaches, including Meyer that have been outcoached on a weekly basis.
Schinao getting outcoached! Never has happened!
They can play defense? Are you watching the game. Before this year? They had different players! And w egot our asses kicked by Iowa and Oklahoma last year and if ichigan had a decent QB last year we have have lost! Take those rose colored glasses off!
The buckeyes are just not that bad! Are you watching the games! The defense has been described as one of the worst in history! Gave up almost 300 yards to a freshman.
So if you win 52-51 all is good? Really? No changes on defensive staff? We will lose at some point, even though we all don't want to accept nor believe that. No matter what happens on Saturday, changes must be made, on both sides of the ball. We can't pick up a yard on short yardages. Our OL are constantly getting pushed back. On defense our LBs suck, our DBs can't tackle or cover. They constantly out of position. We are getting outcoached on a weekly basis.
It's called getting out coached. Being unprepared!
How many times have we heard hiw well they practices this week? Something is very wrong if we are practicing well and not playing well in game day! Please someone tell me what is wrong if we have a great practice week? I personally thought teh distractions of the Smith issue did not help! That decision by Meyer to have him on his staff is li!e a raah that won't go away! What the hell is wrong!!!
Nich sabam and bama would kill us!!! Get realistic! This team on defense is horrible! To bad your homer views can't see that! If I'm am wrong how do you explain all those big plays and giving up so many points? How? Do you think saying we are great fixes anything? Do you think that's what the coaches are telling the pkayers? I get being a fan, but come o pn, watch the games!
Zach Smith, the gift that keeps on giving. It's hurting recruiting as I feared it would. Horrible decision by Meyer to bring him on to the staff. He wasn't even a good coach!
What I do know is that the guys we are throwing out there are not getting it done. 42-17? Wow! Bold prediction! I'm guessing that one comes from the heart?
Wow have you been watching the games? We suck at just about every facit of the game right now except at WR. Haskins has seemed to hit a roadblock. And he runs like he's carrying a refrigerator on his back. We beat nebraska by 50 last year, what happened this year? Watch the games!
The coaches mentioned that players don't play on Saturday because they don't perform well during the week. So which is better, playing players that play well in practice and not in games or players that don't practice well but play well in games? Aren't games more important?
Got ya! Bama is great because they bring in great players every year and have great coaches. Can't win titles without doing either every year. My finger has been itchy all year to push that button after the Smith debacle. Losing Harrison would be a gut punch! A double gut punch!
Stock down - Urban and his coach speak. I heard this type of talk at the end of the tressel tenure. It stime Urban hangs it up. I take everything at this point with a grain of salt!
