Who cares...haven't we moved on from him yet? Kid tried to be a Buckeye, saw the writing on the wall and found the next stop. Best wishes to him.
Played lights out and will be good to have next week in the toilet bowl. He's got an aggressive streak a mile wide and gets to the QB in a hurry.
Personally, I don't think they're a product of bad play-calling.
However, I think the turtling up from mid-3rd on was. They had no answer for the passing game and JF has 1 INT on the season. Felt a bit Urban-esque to be honest. Have to stay on the attack and put teams away.
Confirmed - I just got mine. Get'em quick veteran brethren!
There were around 1,400 for the Wisconsin game - I wouldn't give up hope too soon my vet brethren.
All I know is that I can't wait for them to fall back to mediocrity next year when Burrow is gone. This team as a whole, without him would be a standard 8-4 LSU squad. They're hyping the coaches & everyone else...look, this entire swing is Burrow. That's it.
McDonough and Blackledge have brought up the 4 top 10 wins 3x now. They can't help themselves but to say how LSU doesn't deserve to be jumped by the Bucks but the gap is becoming more narrow. They're giving up hundreds of yards to garbage opponents and getting scored on at will. If the roles were reversed - forget about it.
Their defense is suspect and has given up big yards and points multiple times this year.
I love how announcers / analysts / commentators refuse to acknowledge the completeness of OSU and how really, the two teams aren't comparable on D. The other argument that drives me INSANE is how LSU has 4 wins vs. top 10 teams. Ok - Texas doesn't count anymore for one. They're riding the Bama win for now, but any team with a good offense and solid D can beat them on any given night.
Also, Burrow is a phenomenal QB, but he's looked shaky under pressure and now has 6 INTs on the year vs. Fields' 1. Just sayin'...the Heisman shouldn't be gifted to him. He typically plays 4 quarters and Fields plays 2-3 quarters on average.
The million dollar question is: Why are there so many freaking Steelers fans in Ohio?
I don't care if you like the Browns or Bengals - I am constantly annoyed by the rando Steelers fans who have no real reason for cheering for them besides the fact that they were consistently good for a lengthy amount of time. Caveat, I have ZERO respect for fair weather fans. My own cousins who cheer for them can't give an actual reason for liking them besides they're on our border. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. In my entire life, I've met one Colts fan while in Ohio. On the other hand, Steelers fans are everywhere, and typically obnoxious and its exhausting.
On the topic: I'd give Garrett the year, Pouncey 4 (what kind of idiot punches a guy w/a helmet on?) and Rudolph 2 for helping instigate it, then throwing his hands up like the cupcake he is.
This idiocy deserves PLENTY of social media spotlight. Someone get this trending so that moron can account for his ignorant remarks.
Gibbs is set to visit soon. I'm sure any other RB news would be shared ASAP in a Hurry-Up or other feature post.
CINCI pulls it off with a field goal at the buzzer. That 18 point 4th quarter saved them.
Upvote for the Williams reference. I think he is a HUGE game breaker in the near future. I'd love to see him get a lot of action these next couple of weeks. If for nothing else, the depth isn't as impressive as it has been in the past. He's an injury or two away from plenty of meaningful snaps.
Any opportunity to get his name in the spotlight is a win IMO. Anything to generate more buzz on a defensive player as a Heisman candidate and break down the exhausting truth that it's become a sensationalized and recycled Davey O'Brien award.
Agreed - the only thing is, most recruits have to at least speculate that Hartline (and likely Hafley as well) won't be in Columbus for long. Day wants two years out of these guys...if I were a betting man, I'd say H&H will be offered some nice coordinator or HC opportunities in the near future.
Anyone else think this every time a recruit shares their affinity for Hartline or Hafley? Day I think is here to stay, the other two maybe not so much.
The entire discussion will change again next week, the week after that and the week after that.
Moot debate to be honest.
I'd love to see Etienne and Hubbard's stats running against B1G defenses. They're both great backs don't get me wrong, but the competition absolutely helps their stat lines.
Do we HAVE to start a new thread every time Martell breathes? WHO CARES? He's moving on in life - why can't our obsessed fanbase?
A team with a lot less to lose, and coming off an ugly loss to me is MUCH MORE dangerous than a team rolling in off a blowout win.
Good chance some of these guys are getting extra healed up for Wisconsin.
Not saying they're overlooking NW, just saying - could be a risk/reward situation. Would rather they be healthy next week than take a chance and they aggravate something against the Wildcats.
Mond is elusive and that's it. He misses a lot of targets and overthrows receivers as much as any college QB I've watched this year.
You're right about the RB though - A&M is onto their 3rd stringer now.
Anytime you get blocked by someone with that size of a following, you have done something mighty friend. Not only that, but your arguments were sound and intelligent.
Is Ward healthy for tonight's game or still out?
Thanks for the response BrutusB...yeah I did that intentionally. Felt like getting into deliberate 2021 players felt a bit extensive b/c then you've got another 10 players+ to project and it just seems too early. I hear you on Fields though!
