Had ttun won that game our Buckeyes would have played in the B1G CG and would have gone to the playoffs.
2 - 3 - 4 - 1
I 2nd that LeftCoastBuck.
I watched the 60 minute game on BTN because I wanted to focus on Shea and I could not believe how poor of a QB he is. Take a look at his feet when he drops back. it's like he's dancing in the pocket. Talk about "Happy Feet". And it's not just once or twice, but every drop back pass. How could this not be addressed after 2 years with the QB whisperer.
I hope they lose every game.
Maryland on the road and Indiana will be no walk in the park for ttun. They could lose them both.
I'll take Nebraska and the points for $100 Alex and hope I lose.
In my 40 years of following OSU this is the sharpest I've seen any team after 3 games. Let's hope they continue to improve, because if they do, no one will be able top stop them....Yes, I'm talking to you Clemson, Bama, Oklahoma, LSU and Georgia.
1st Place - Shea Patterson UM
2nd Place - Donovan Peoples-Jones UM
3rd Place - Tarik Black UM
4th Place - Zach Charbonnet UM
5th Place - Joe Milton UM
It will be the first time in college football history all 5 representatives are from the same school. UM wins every preseason award.
I look for this year line to be MUCH improved over last years o-line. It might take 3-4 games for the line to truly get comfortable playing together, but come game 5, yes looking at you Nebraska, look OUT.
Barring any injuries, this o-line is going to dominate teams.
Let's also remember that last years team was running a spread option the first 5-6 games and defenses were keying on the running back because they knew Haskins was not a threat to run the ball. Thus, Dobbins and Weber struggled. Once we moved to a pro-pass offense the running lanes began to open.
I look for this offense to put up just about the same amount of yards and points. However, we will have less passing yards and more running yards than last years team.
My BOLD prediction for the year is JK runs for more than 2,000 yards because the o-line is going to open up holes and Fields can run the option as well as any QB.
If Ryan Day isn't a top 5 coach in college football then he shouldn't be the head man at OSU. Given the fact Urban gave him two thumbs up when Gene asked, is good enough for me.
Army returns 20 starters from a team that went 11-2 and crushed Houston 70-22 in their bowl game. I think Army beat ttun.
I like your 2 trap games in Maryland and Indiana. I could actually see ttun losing both games.
This year could be it for hairball after a 7-5 or even a 6-6 year.
Maybe it's just me, and a few others, but we need to pump the brakes just a little bit on anointing Fields the starter over Baldwin. Baldwin has been in the system for a year and knowing the playing book is big. He was also was no slouch in high school.
