IIRC, in the 2006 game at Texas, OSU/Tressel successfully substituted the entire offensive line for at least one long drive.
"Being present" is a key to happiness, according to many gurus.
the Ohio State brand and the century of consistent winning that preceded
I really liked these phrases
Wanted to play outside and pop 3's at almost 7'.
Alex, I'll take "Things centers do in Europe" for 3 million.
Interesting that clubs in Europe (Yes, Moscow is in Europe) are paying more for NBA players.
Alas and alack, the young men need to get paid.
Since 99% of college football players don't even get a pro tryout, and are unlikely to ever earn as much as $500/game, one could argue that they are getting paid—grossly overpaid—with their scholarships, tutors, room and board, snacks/meals, trainers, nutritionists, game tickets, etc.
Does a First Responder Bowl help fill in the stands by giving away tickets to First Responders?
And Boy Scouts? etc
. . . and thrilling Buckeye fans.
Going back to his interim gig last year, it’s clear he is a natural at this.
Yes, he has some presence, and he speaks well. OTOH, there's no controversy to deal with; these were softball Q's.
Agreed, except as modified below . . .
We all know how [we think] the battle will eventually play out, but nothing wrong with keeping the job technically open for now.
Strangeness from Harbaugh.
With those glasses and the (ever-present) ballcap, is he trying to look like Woody?
Kudos to Jordan Fuller. Keep it going, Buckeye.
If I were Holtmann / OSU, I would hold a public practice ($5 admission?) pitting these teams against each other. It could amp up support for Buckeye hoops.
Maybe, maybe I would switch Carton for CJ Walker to make the teams more even.
Haskins > wow. And replacing him down in there may be the challenge
Yep. Dwyane's accuracy paired with good hands by receivers brought success on those plays.
If Field's accuracy (or defense reading) or receivers snag-ability falls off a bit on such plays, more field goal attempts may result. Of course, OSU could run different plays though superior blocking or route running.
I would like to see Fields run only enough to force defenses to honor the threat. Depth (or at least proven depth) at QB is an issue for us this season. I like the idea of running Fields as little as possible - under those conditions.
If we can get defensive players to hesitate for even just an instant because of their renewed concern for the QB keeper, he should be able to get the ball in to the hands of his talented receivers (and RBs) even more effectively. They should be able to get yet another step or so on the coverage.
Hear, Hear. Throw it here! Speed & an extra second are key.
So how Russell adapts to the team and if GS is willing to change a tad to help Russell with be a huge determining thing if this is going to work.
Adaptability is a key thing in hoops, as it is in life.
The ncaa changed the language in the transfer rule to make it more difficult to receive a waiver for immediate playing time.
Thanks. Can you tell us where you saw this (link?)?
I remember the Big Kat getting the ok from Arch to wear 45, want to say AJ Hawk and Justin Hilliard did the same with OSU/the Harley family to wear 47?
It seems it's the coach who calls the honored player or his family, not the current Buckeye athlete. (Probably what you meant.)
Shaw and Jameson Williams must be going for the Bol Bol physique. Shaw Listed at 6-2 and 175. Williams listed at 6-2 and 169.
Marroti and nutritionist Sean McMickle need to work on these guys. These players may very well put on the "Freshman 15," making them respectable at 190 & 184 respectively. Added muscle will be gravy.
Sure, but the charts are difficult to read, especially the scarlet & gray ones. Fonts way too small—and one can wrap text to the next line with bigger ones.
So Hoops IQ should angle up too, eh?
I don’t understand how any buckeye fan could be hateful toward a guy that was far and away our best player the last 2 years. Without him, no way Holtman has the immediate impact he has had so far. The rebuild would have certainly taken longer. My only criticism is his dumb fouls away from the ball and in the back court
IMO, KBD was the best
OSU B1G player in 2017-18, but Kaleb's presence & play sure helped that.
I agree that KW's play was crucial to Holtmann's impact, as seen last season when he was absent. I am encouraged by the apparent weight loss and hope it means better conditioning. But it may not be much help if Kaleb still lets opponents goad him into stupid (reaction) fouls, especially in the backcourt. Hoops smarts include "keeping your head in the game", as Hoosiers (film) fans know.
While we are extremely talented and optimistic as a fan base, most teams that are replacing the best QB in school history, one of the best coaches in school history, a large part of our passing offense from last year in 3 WRs, and have quite a few new coaches on staff as well...objectively it's okay to not rank us that highly.
Yep, and placing someone above OSU sells magazines / ads / pageviews. This year it also feeds UM's need.
you're going to have to swim knowing you're sharing the water with this fellow (25-30 foot)
Not a shark expert, but a great white of that length is very unlikely to be male. It's the females that get to be around 25 feet.
Also, it seems great whites are scared spitless of Orcas.
What if the NCAA hoops tourney only extended invitations to D1 schools in "pristine standing"? That is, no violations that gave them an advantage in training, recruiting, etc. If violations were found, or were being investigated, then no invite would come.
Could this be reasonably done without constant lawsuits?
