One of my first games and I'm right out of frame of the kick. We went crazy. Loved Barclay!
Great player who made a mistake. Olave will be an amazing WR until his days are done at OSU. Let's hope he continues to improve next year!
Nope. It's simplified for Americans, so you will see it more often here of course but go to any world record for field events and they will all list metric and not imperial.
Agreed. I loved every second of this game, especially the beginning and end. Everyone was just loving it.
See I get what the OPs saying. The team doesn't feel at all different then the last few years and short of name and certain tweaks, the team definitely feels like it hasn't changed. That was not the case when Tressel came around and when Urban came around as well. I think the aura of the HC is still hanging over the program, not in a bad way at all either. I just don't think Day has had a chance to make a LOUD impact on the team in terms of making it his own. Of course, he's been HBC for what.. 4 months? Once the season starts is when you'll truly feel it. Hell, you'll probably feel it during training camp.
We are used to a certain team and that team has continued to feel the same IMO, especially as someone who doesn't watch every new conference or read every story.
Yeah.. I wasn't aware Jerry was very animated on the sidelines. The only distraction is of course his seizures. Being that I have them.. not exactly something you can control or want someone to think is an attempt at a distraction.
Good to see the team back together in public. I MISSED YOU GUY!
Also.. shame they haven't been to CP or KI. Not being a fan of coasters, I can see how they would not want to venture. I'm sure there are plenty of folks on the team like myself who go whenever they get a free chance.
That they do but that's more of a Big 10 tradition from what I've seen? Or I could be wrong. Don't see it much when we're playing OOC foes.
Was about to say.. did I buy my tickets and the damn game was home? Those lying ass Boilermakers.
Because if he breaks the rules set within his contract, that can be cause for dismissal. Thats what they're figuring out. And if he did break any rules, Ohio State has every right and very well could fire him.
Take this UV for those DV good sir.
Boy was moving! Good job representing both Ohio State and the USA. Keep it up!
It is now. :)
And yeah, that is a gap but considering this is Tiffin University compared to Ohio State, the gap isn't enormous. We see bigger gaps between nations in the Olympics compared to these two Ohio schools. Shame they didn't go head to head this year, would have loved to seen my Alma Mater vs my favorite schools team. :)
Solid speed! Great job Bucks!
Funny to see the small disparity between divisions however. My alma mater, Tiffin University, ran 39.71, at Nationals over this weekend, finishing 2nd overall. I definitely would have thought it would have been a broader disparity. Of course, anyone below 40 seconds is insane so I'm just kinda comparing apples to apples. :)
Tiffin University, my alma mater, is working on adding this as well as other games as well. They're also one of the first colleges in the nation with a dedicated ESports complex. Crazy..
I'm in. What should I wear?
I am. I wish I fast in the 100/200. I'd beat him in the 400/800 though. ;)
You obviously don't follow track and field. I've seen kids in middle school run 11.03. Zekes numbers weren't incredible on the track by any stretch, and neither is Zachs. Now by no means am I calling these kids slow, those times are still very fast, but football speed and track speed are two different things to compare and we're really grasping at straws hoping this kid is good based on time which has no relevance to his speed or position.
And while he may be 'big', is he really? The kid is tall but thick with enormous leg muscles. Seeing him run, I'm not at all surprised he ran a 10.8. But as I've said before, I've seen kids his size do that at many levels.
I was. I don't think it was posted stating that either but many seem obsessed with numbers, especially in regards to track and field. I try and set the record straight where I can as track doesn't always translate to the field. Zeke is the big one as he ran 11 flat to win Missouri. Just look at the state championships over the last few years from Ohio, let alone the state record and numbers of the like, to see how unremarkable that number is. That is also why I praised Kendall as that is a feat what he did during indoor.
Remember folks, numbers only get you so far. I'm more concerned with his technique, quickness off the ball and ability to get around big O-Lineman. Most, if not all of relevant football skill can be found on grass and not a rubberized surface.
And a downvote? Get out of here.
Hate to throw some water on the heat of these takes, but his time is not that truly that amazing, even with his size. Hand timed in a dual meet and most likely wind aided helped pad both of those times. Fast-ish, yes, but compared to other sprinters I've known over the years in all levels, especially with similar size, who were or became football stars, he is decent at best. And I cannot emphasize how track speed does not always translate to football speed. When I was in high school, I would regular beat our running back in the 100 and 200. He went to Wisconsin on a full scholarship (Lance Smith from Howland for those wondering). Meanwhile, my specialty was the 800m.
If he starts popping low 10's and into the 20's in the big meets with electronic timing, be damn impressed. For now? Those are simply decent numbers for a football kid throwing on some track spikes.
Now Kendall Sheffield, what HE did is amazing. THAT is track speed. If he applied himself, he could have a future in track and field should he wish.
Not.. really? Usain Bolt, the fastest human in history, was 6'5 and 215.. albeit he is very lean.
This right here. You could see it up and down the court. CMU was a great transition and spacing team so if your defense lacks, as noted by the article, wide open shots. You could tell OSU was done by mid 2nd quarter tbh. Their body language was saying all you needed to say. Twas a great season but an incredibly disappointing showing.
I think he made the right choice and I feel that his teammates and coaches agree AND support his decision because a number of them will face the same decision.
And his opinion is 100% on point with the value of 95% of the bowl games. They HAVE become meaningless and short of playing for an actual something, they are worthless. A lot of people seem to care when kids make life decisions for their own benefit but never care to think why they made that decision.
Good for you Denzel. Go make your money in the short period you can for those of us who never could live that dream.
