No, it’s makes the coaching staff more conscious that getting some reps could derail the season utterly in week 10...
How about we stop freaking out over the performance of the backups, that’s what these games are for.
You guys are really bitching about the performance of the 2nd & 3rd String players many of whom are true freshmen?
That can when two of your starters on the line and one of your better linebackers are out. Relax, that fact that the team is up 35-7 after a “sloppy” first half is great & make no mistake a part of that is by design. This team will be ready for the home stretch.
Stop it. Saban had every reason to do it & I am sure Tua was on board with it. He has to play the “eye test” game, keep his Heisman candidate in contention, & allow for valuable game reps & it was still the first half. OSU literally did the same thing last weekend & while Fields was not as seriously injured as Tua, he has been banged up & was taking some shots out there.
That is what I assumed this thread was about.
Deshaun Watson was the one guy I really wanted & then ironically Justin Fields, the fact that he ended up at OSU still makes me chuckle.
Before & after, as clearly seen on the replay shown multiple times.
Put down the drinks guys lol it’s okay that the backups look a little sloppy after a bye week. That’s why this experience is so important.
I hate all this recognition, at the same time Ryan Day has done a phenomenal job & here is to him continuing that.
Guys. It’s entertainment. Colin is playing his role as folly to Klatt, stop thinking the radio/tv personality that you see equates to the real guy. He’s an entertainer & doesn’t really hide the fact that he knows what he says is ridiculous.
I call bullshit, nothing about how OSU played under Meyer or how Meyer has coached in any year has ever resembled “entitled”. Could Urban be arrogant? Absolutely. Was his coaching choices always great? Absolutely not. Were his teams always the most disciplined? Not a chance in hell, but they were NEVER entitled.
While OSU’s dominance has been a factor, I think the key aspect is that OSU is balanced. Look at the numbers of Field’s peers RB’s & compare them Dobbins & Teague.
I wouldn’t say they came out flat. They scored on three out of the first four drives & never gave up a touchdown.
That’s really not fair to Dontre, Dontre contributed & was rather explosive before he injured his foot.
3.) Ohio State
8.) Notre Dame
10.) Penn State
Our next game against MSU will be my measuring stick for OSU.
Wisconsin is always physical, but they look more athletic than usual & UM looks slow & dare I say soft. With that said OSU is far ahead in terms of talent than either, if they stay focused & keep that edge we should overwhelm both.
Probably because Michael Thomas is highest paid WR right now & Campbell’s latest TD was last Sunday as opposed to over a decade go.
IMHO JF does not really remind me of any particular QB when I seem him play, he's own man in my eyes, but if I had to make a comparison it would be Troy Smith. JF is more natural a passer than JT IMO.
Doubt it. Gene is on the backend of his career, why would he trade in a Top 3 position at worst that is currently a well oiled machine to try & rebuild an athletic department that isn’t close to what it once was? Urban on the other hand may or may not coach again, regardless off what you believe were his reasons for retiring, we all know he didn’t “want” to. With that said I don’t think he’s ready to head to a different program just yet, he’s still actively attending OSU practices & had to be corrected about saying “we” in reference to OSU this afternoon on live TV. Just my take.
The coaches probably don’t, but like you have pointed out we are fans. Let’s act like fans & enjoy the dominant win while the coaches do their jobs.
I think his suggestion was more about being grateful the kid is a Buckeye & clearly improving in front of our eyes instead of nitpicking a 41-point win in which Fields accounted for at least 4 scores for the third time in a row.
Imagine that just last week this comments section was in full blown meltdown mode despite the team shutting down in the second quarter.
Schiano would never! Hahahaha!
There are definitely things that need to be worked on, but when we ran a play-action on 3rd & 8 in the middle of the second quarter I started game hopping because at that point I knew they were switching to vanilla mode from that point on & a benefit of that is it makes it easier to spot what fundamentals need to be focused on. R-E-L-A-X!!!
