If I played Left Tackle for IU, I would fake an injury this week. Chase Young is just that scary!!!
I want to give a shout out to both offensive and Defensive lines. Both units are the reason it was such a dominate performance. The National pundits will say that UC is just not a very good team. I don't agree and their record at the end of the season will show that. It was just a flawless game in the trenches.
I'm feel really confident about Coach Day. When I start thinking about why, I am reminded that Urban Meyer recommended him. Urban Meyer knows a thing or two about good coaches. I also think that Urban was serious when he said he was only going to leave Ohio State only when he knew he had a great replacement. I also believe Ryan Day would have accepted a head coaching Job somewhere else if not offered the Ohio State job. So with all that, I believe we got a good one and he only needs a little time to prove it.
Urban Meyer Quote:
"And I hired Ryan Day because I thought he was a very good coach. I knew he was. He was with me before. What I found out was that he’s far past those thoughts. He’s elite.And I think in trying to build the most comprehensive premier program in America, you also want to hand it off to someone at some point so it can get even stronger. And my witnessing of the work Ryan has done and made this decision, not as difficult as I thought, because I know the infrastructure, like Gene talked about, is going to be secure with Coach Marotti and the rest of the staff. I think it’s very healthy. We recruited very well."
I am with you on this. No regrets about landing Fields. He has the ability to take this team to the top and he would be hard to hurt. But what does worry me is the scenario that Clemson went through last year. Lawrence got knock out of the game against Syracuse because running the ball. They were so close to losing that game and only reason they won it is because of their Defense. Their backup is a lot like our options now. Can this team when a game if the same thing happens?
I'd take that bet. JK will have the most carries on the team, if healthy. He was slower last year, but he'll figure how to get it back.
I don't understand why I get so excited about a 3 star that is a freak athlete. I guess it's because they can become elite with our coaching staff.
Clemson's Lawrence looked average at the beginning of last year. He got better as the year went on and then they were unbeatable. Hoping the same happens with Fields. He will need time and our Defense needs to provide the strength early on.
Amen, she is completely distracting.
Inside the tackles Tuf was a beast. If he was still hurting maybe he can get some speed back and do better on the outside.
A lot credit goes to development. Landers and Hamilton were 3 stars. And Jones was a DE/TE and become a beast at DT. The Hype is real for Larry Johnson being the best DL coach in CF.
I am reading a lot of negativity on these threads. I for one am very excited because the writing is on the wall, Fields will be eligible. Let Tate go. He was no good for this offensive scheme. Justin Fields is a beast and is a perfect fit. Think Haskins but better. Baulding is a better fit than Tate. It’s very rare you need three QBs in a season. We have Miller coming in next year. Everything is working out great.
No not if you want to win National Championships. Ask Dabo, I think he knew he could not win the big game with Kelly Bryant.
