Bulletin board material? I don't think most of the folks north of the border can read or write. If they post a picture book of the story then maybe, but other than that I wouldn't worry about it.
I didn't give the down vote, but I think it is a moot point considering he started and played the whole game. If he is in the game already, hand him the damn ball!
We had the best running back in college football and only gave him 12 rushing attempts in 2015 againts Sparty in a game where weather conditions made it impossible to pass the ball.
I propose Harrison wager his commitment on the game this Saturday, winner takes all.
The curse continues.
I think the worries are warranted.
6-0 is nothing to take for granted, and we are damn lucky not to have been born north of the state border. However, you don't have to dig very far into your memory to find our mid-season tendencies setting the table for a very painful late-season loss.
I'm looking at you Michigan State 2015 and Clemson 2016.
Besides, if Haskins doesn't turn water into wine with 8 minutes to go in Happy Valley, then the sky could very well be falling.
Lets face it, if he didn't get injured against TCU we all knew that it was only a matter of time before him or Chase Young got injured by colliding into a quarterback at the same time in the backfield.
Cannot wait for Urban to be back in the throne, however I wouldn't mind if he kept the QB run on paid administrative leave.
The solution is so simple:
1st down = Martell to gain positive yardage
2nd down = Burrow to manage down and distance
3rd down = Haskins to make the tight window throw
I think that blueprint started collecting dust long before the 2015 season started.
This is a tough one. I am probably a little bias towards Haskins because of the poise he showed in the big house last year.
It baffles me that no one has dusted off the blueprint Herman left during our dominant 3 game championship run. Haskins has the arm to open up our running game, but not enough mobility to carry the ball 15 times a game. If the latter forces our offense to favor that of the 2014 post season, then Haskin’s lack of mobility should be moved under the category of “why he should start”.
Re-scheduling initial beer from 9:45 AM to 7:45 AM.
Oh, JT wasn't a running back?
I don't necessarily mind Urban brushing the 2015 QB situation under the rug in this presser, but I must say he certainly isn't giving me a warm and fuzzy about this upcoming season.
Also wouldn't mind them moving arm talent into the top 5 things they evaluate when looking for a QB.
8 or so years ago when OSU had the best record over 108 years. Now it's 122 years. (Last year it was 120 years)
This really mind fucked me
Let's face it. Barrett was not the legendary QB that his statistics painted him to be, but he was also not the bum that frustrated fans colored him as either.
There are inconsistant opinions about Barrett because he was an inconsistent QB.
While a majority of his great games came against lesser opponents, he certainly did have his fair share of memorable moments. But I think there is a reason that JT is almost exclusively defended by his statistics.
There is no secret who JT was. He was the guy who could throw the game winning touchdown against Penn State, and on his very next pass play throw a pick 6 against Iowa.
While I agree with your post, I am actually on the other side of the fence. I think the Buckeyes get in for all the wrong reasons.
- To make sure more conferences are represented
- Cause less controversy/Less justification needed for putting in a conference champ
- TV Ratings
I think it is the path of least resistance for the committee, and that may be the deciding factor.
