The Gibbs or bust comment was meant for this recruiting class, not the RBs already on the team.
PhillynNut nailed it. LJ is the best in the nation at developing linemen. I feel like a few years ago people were down on LJ because of recruiting. I don't think there was a weak defensive lineman on this team.
Look at Leroux already putting in the work with the ladies. Confidence on and off the field! I am so pumped about this class.
Watching the Mike Golic Jr. videos and explanation makes me realize how underrated Jonah Jackson really is. That dude is an animal. This isn't a dig at Munford, but he was probably the worst offensive lineman in the unit and he was the one returning starter. This OL has been mauling people.
When you posted the Jeff Hafley video, I would appreciate next time if you say NSFW. I am not crying, you are crying.
Jokes aside.....how do we keep that guy? We probably won't, but what a hell of a coach and person!
I love the enthusiasm, but Burrow already has it wrapped up.
I believe that people across the nation don't really seem to understand that Fields has played with a sprained MCL in the past few games. It was obvious that he wasn't 100% in the Wisconsin game and not able to make the plays with his legs that he was making all season. There were a number of plays he could've made something by running. And they also ran maybe one called QB keeper that I can remember. He will be much more healthy come December 28th. This Clemson game should be a stunner.
I always stress that as fans, us thinking a win is a foregone conclusion doesn't affect what the players do on the field. But I will say this to your close games against weak opponents. This team is very different than the Ohio State teams of the past, and the total offense and total defense numbers and rankings are a testament to that. No team in my era has been this dominant on both sides of the ball, so excuse me for being pretty confident that Penn State won't be able to hang with the Buckeyes. And after this game, you can come back to this comment.
Even when things didn't look to be going the Buckeyes way against a pretty talented Wisconsin team (bad turnover)....they didn't shutter and beat the brakes off that team in the rain. I may be an optimist, but this team is going to be hard to beat.
These videos are bringing a flood of emotion back to these plays. This is one of the best sacks in history of the Buckeyes.
Maybe the best t-shirt ever.
Stats like these do win games. The fact that they are top in the nation on both sides of the ball is the MAIN reason they are winning games. They are dominating on both sides of the ball. And Chase is coming back likely with a chip on his shoulder after sitting for two games. Beat PSU!
Watching Shipley's tape....he is the guy I want in next year's class regardless of position.
This made me laugh out loud.
I am a Bengals fan, and I have this argument all too often. If they have the number one pick, it has to be one of the most can't miss talents in the last 10 years. Chase Young will be a game changer from day one for an NFL team.
Snickers hands down....no debate. Snicker, Snickers Ice Cream Bar, Snickers Blizzard, Snickers Cheesecake (in Bubba voice).
I know, I was surprised when they did the poll and so many picked Togiai as the most impressive. Don't get me wrong, Tommy has emerged as a stud, but you have to go with Hamilton and what he is doing. He is wreaking havoc. Then we have Cornell and Landers....this defensive line just doesn't make sense. No wonder we are the best in the nation.
I will forever love Joey Bosa.....dude is funny without trying and he is one of the best in the league. Buckeyes in the league are dominating the NFL.
The new schemes are more predicated on doing your job and making the tackles. Which Ohio State has done stellar-ly. Cool article.
I just have to question if you even read what the Heisman trophy was or the criteria is before posting these ridiculous comments. Thanks for the morning laugh though.
This game said what all of us Buckeye fans have been saying since early on in the season. "We are here, and we are the most complete team in the Nation!"
This team is great at every aspect, and I can't say this enough. I kind of complained about the OL early in the game and said that was the biggest weakness. Then in the second half they absolutely dominated the Badgers front. They knew we were running, and there wasn't a damn thing they could do about it. Gashing two of the best defenses the way they have has been incredible.
The lone Badger touchdown was a fluke, and sometimes that happens. But once Ohio State got that punch to the face, they hit second gear. This team is special.
They have been about as fraud as Manti Te'o's girlfriend.
I agree with sleeper, but I believe his break out year will be next year.
He is one of the guys I most look forward to seeing develop into a star. He has already flashed those elite ball-hawking abilities in limited time.
He doesn't need to.
