Yeah but 3 of those "younger guys" will be SRs by then
DT is all about Vincent for me. If he can come back and be the force that he can be, it is a position of strength. If not, it is a bit of a thin spot.
It can be both. Burrow definitely would have been very successful the past 2 years at OSU, had he got the nod. He certainly would have had a much better year 1 at OSU than he did at LSU. But he also wouldn't have had as good of a year 2 either. So the LSU offense hurt him and then it helped him.
It is still a wash for me. Haskins + Fields the past 2 years has yielded just as good of a result as Burrow for the last 2 would have. The bonus about the current OSU scenario is we have Justin Fields for another year instead of perhaps Baldwin or Martell next year. Woof.
I have no major complaints with Werner. He was very solid and will be even more so with a whole year in this system under his belt. Having Borland back for his 9th year is a bit depressing though. Browning isn't the answer in the middle either, so it would just be refreshing to see some of these other guys get a legitimate chance to show out on the field and see what else we have.
If they put him on the outside, and/or put his hand in the dirt on pass rushing downs. He is a monster coming off the edge, but the light just hasn't gone on for excelling at everything a MLB needs to be able to do.
He could lead the team in sacks if they made it so.
Yep and it would be hard to blame any of them if they made that choice.
A definite must win. No more home Ls to mid to lower level teams in the conference can be afforded. This team has a ton of work to do to even sniff a .500 a finish in the conference, and it starts tonight.
I don't know about anyone else, but I am choosing to believe this rumor because it seems like whatever can go wrong for this team will go wrong right now. Also it has become a frequent tradition for the Men's basketball to have a key player suspended during a crucial stretch of the season. So yeah, would not surprise me at all if true.
Damnit guys, this was seriously the 1st day since 12/28 I think I legitimately hadn't thought about the Fiesta Bowl.
I'll never get over it either, but once they get the stupid championship game on 1/13 over, and the week or so of follow-up chatter, I'll at least be able to "move on".
I was, and I came here to post that exact game.
Yep, that for me is why out of the 3 segments of the game I layed out above, the first 25 mins and 16-0 lead is not the one I pick to say "this is why we lost". Oh, we kicked FGs, the horror. FGs are better than punts, which is what Clemson was doing. The game was headed in a direction (domination) it would have continued in if not for the 2nd/3rd/4th chances that the officials/OSU gave them.
The OSU inflicted "this is why we lost" for me is the last 5 mins. Get another 1st down, drain more clock and add to the lead. No? OK, get one more stop on D with your opponent 94 yds away. No? OK, drive the field and don't pick the worst possible time to break off your route on a possible TD pass.
