I think Barrett struggled because of his previous position coach Beck and OC Warriner. Even though Day took over in 2017 and 2018 as the new QB coach, I believe the teachings of Beck still lingered in Barrett's head his last year. If you remember JT's first year as starting QB under Herman, he shined. That is what I think happened anyway.
Hit the nail right on the head there Blackmagic. I would of loved to be one of those underpaid as well. Education, healthcare, food, place to stay while getting that great education. Not to mention the ipads, shoes and anything else that gets donated to them while there. Oh let us not forget the ability to showcase their talents for possible future playing time at a pro level. Underpaid indeed. Wake up people, they are paid quite well indeed.
Well its really simple. It doesn't matter if he transferred for the N word thing or not. The NCAA ruled in his favor, to do so they must of thought it was unsafe for him at Georgia, and for you or anyone else to say it wasn't really doesn't matter. In Tate's case, well, we will leave that alone. I wish the kid luck but that is all he gets from me, good riddance to him for many reasons and none of them good. But in the end, it doesn't matter what I think of that either, the NCAA granted him the ticket so to everyone, just let it be. And if we happen to play against him in the future, then let the better team win.
Lets go Football......yeah....
Why bring that up again...opinions will very and you may not like it but it is what it is, now just let the dead horse die alrdy.
Lol, Ironically, I said basically the same thing about our defense as the author of this article did, but I got a few downvotes lol. Looking forward to seeing what the new coaches can do with this talented defense we have, and as I said before, it cant get any worse. So iuts looking up already.
Thank you for saying it isn't always about the money. The youngsters of today aren't yet old enough to understand that for the most part. they only get a few years to play at tOSU or in school in general. Once you go pro it becomes a job, its all business, it is no longer just a game and only a few actually make it. Even so there is a chance of being cut. It is good they have ex players like Carter they can talk to and help them understand the advantage of staying or going.
If that is how you take it then well that is your choice. I never said anything about Combs. All I said was this years defense was bad, so bad it was the worst OSU defense in history. How you got Combs out of that I don't know. Maybe it was the part about not looking back, dono. As I stated to that is I never understood the don't look back for the ball thing. Doing so does draw interference calls, we seen it all year and even seen it in the past. Maybe not as much in the past but it still happened. Look at how many of those calls could of been avoided and maybe even had intercepted some, if they would just look back for the ball. So again do not know how you brought Combs into it, unless you are purposely trying to start something, in witch case, I am not biting nor playing that childish game.
Well you are certainly intitled to your opinion, but honestly I feel that 90% of what he did wrong was the bad coaching he received. Never understood the don't look back thing. And with them saying they will look back for the ball this year, I think the sky in the limit for this young man. He had a lot of PI calls on him last year that prolly wouldn't of been called if he was just looking back, and that isn't even mentioning the possible interceptions that could of happened if he or they, I should say, would of just looked back for the ball. Coarse we haven't seen this new coaching staff in action all together yet, I am optimistic for our defense this year. And in all honestly, it couldn't get much worse than we seen last year. Can it?..... I hope not anyway.
I personally think he was told politely to look for another place and OSU will be looking to head in another direction. In other word, he was told to pack his bags, worst Silver Bullet defense in history isn't going to cut it.
So much for Studs recruitment skills...….Not that I was sold on him and recruiting anyway. Sry guys Just not a fan of Stud and his recruiting or coaching abilities. Just my two cents.
Not to mention revamping the defensive coaches, thank god for that.
Let us not forget it was Schiano's scheme along with the overall bad coaching of the LBs, CBs, and the Ss. Thus is was the bad coaching that was the problem. Let us not forget what to me and others sounded as if he was throwing the players under the bus at times instead of manning up himself. That is shared by all of them. Sure we beat Mich. soundly, but that was the powerful offense we had. defense still gave up what? 400 yards or so and 39 points. That isn't a sound defense. And look at the points in the second half of the Rose Bowl. Not sound defense there either. He may of been a great guy, but masterful DC, I don't think so. Let us not forget the Purdue and Maryland game. No he wasn't that great. I look forward to the new defensive coaches and see what they can do. After last season, it can only get better.
Well said and I agree 100 percent. And do thank him for his playing time, he was fun to watch. Good luck young man, hope you do well.
Quit beating a dead horse...… No one hates him …. people just have different thoughts on how and what he did. No one wishes anything ill of him. Thoughts may differ from yours but it doesn't make them wrong just because you do not think the same way.
They should take this upvote, downvote and just shit can it. Hardly no one uses it like it should it was intended to be used. If you say something that someone doesn't like, they down vote you, yeah ok.....
Yeah ….THIS.... Don't even kid about that.
Brothadudeguy is right, the RPO is designed for the QB to pass the ball quickly, not hold onto it looking for a guy to get open 20 plus yards down the field. It relies on the receiver or TB to make moves after the ball is caught. The line has to block as if it is a run.
Yeah I remember that one to, but why is it other teams that run the RPO doesn't seem to have the issues we had this year? With lesser talent I might add. Someone pls answer that one for me. We have another good QB in the mix, or so we have ben told, that RPO needs to be in the playbooks I think.
Seems to me that that is a coaching concern. Been on the team 2,3 or 4 years and still have concerns over OL. That tells me that Studs isn't doing HIS job. And if he isn't doing his job, then he needs replaced. Makes too much money for this to even be a thought.
Exactly, defense had it tough the second half. what happened. And the Offensive line, what happened in the second half?
I think Grinch was held back cause of Greg Schiano defensive scheme. Hopefully he is gone and we get a better DC on staff.
Well said , well said indeed.
Opinions do not warrant a DV. Just because it may differ from yours, doesn't make it wrong. Have some class and use the DV system for what it was intended for.
He is such a class act. The best at what he does and we are blessed to have him as a Buckeye.
