The pay scale might be evening out a bit. DTs are having a bigger impact on pass rushing with the Aaron Donald types and running is becoming more important again as well. A Guard that keeps the QB upright and provides yards for the RB is worth the cash, especially for a team like Jacksonville that is on the cusp of bigger things and just invested a top 5 pick on a RB with a history of injury problems.

Alabama’s selection is even worse. The Big 12 is a good basketball conference and Oklahoma has been a good team recently, though not this year. On the other hand, Alabama is a crappy 19-15 team playing in a crappy conference with no recent record of success. They were picked for no reason other than ESPN’s SEC preferences. 15 damn losses? I’d take Oklahoma over Alabama any day. I seriously think the selection committee held the Big Ten to 4 teams to throw a bone to ESPN. The NCAA is a massive joke of corruption, collusion, and fraud. Six SEC teams in with double digit losses is four or five too many. I guess they don’t really care about objectivity anymore. I hope the FBI investigates them all, from Emmert on down.

This was a classic Browns trade. Give up a former 1st rounder and a fifth for a late 3rd. Dumb. They could have made out as well if they cut him for a comp pick.

I take it you weren’t around in 2015. Cardale was the starter and our fan base whined/complained like crazy about him and called for JT to replace him. Eventually, Meyer came to the same conclusion and switched to JT. Unfortunately, the drama caused that star studded team to underperform and lose in a rainstorm to the one team we couldn’t afford to lose to. Hell, our fans booed both QBs when they were starters in the Horseshoe during games and Cardale even got some of those awful “kill urself” troll posts on his Twitter account. Since then, I decided to never bash an Ohio State player for any reason. Honest criticism is fine, but our fan base tends to drift into trash talking way too fast when our players do not meet their expectations. It’s ridiculous.

Ironically, my height fluctuates a lot because of my spine. I ruptured six disks in my lower spine and some are practically non-existent now. After hanging on an inversion table for a while, I’m 6’3 in socks. On bad days, I’m 6’1.5-2.5. My doctor said that I could have grown to 6’5-7 if my spine wasn’t injured at such an early age. A few football players probably have similar issues, though obviously not as severe or they wouldn’t be playing football. Most are inflating their height to improve their rankings as high school recruits.

Really? Some players kill it at the Combine and fold like lawn chairs on the field when it really counts. Some players mess up at the Combine and become NFL superstars. The Combine has value, but it isn’t the best indicator of future NFL success. The Combine is more like a track competition and there is a big difference between running there and running in practice. The Combine is extremely high pressure and it’s not like every football player is a track star used to running in those situations, especially the Offensive Linemen. 

My point is that differing Combine results do not mean that the staff purposely manipulated the 40 times from practice. The internal player runs are just hand timed in a low pressure situation in a favorable environment. They are just two different situations which will often lead to two different outcomes.

You got a typo with bettet, Nib. I think you meant to post that their oline will get beat up (at least once a year). Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!

Comment 05 Mar 2018

Damn, that sucks. Consistency has been JT’s biggest issue. When he’s on, he looks like an NFL QB. When he’s off, he makes his critics look smart. It would have been great if he was on fire at the Combine. Oh well. JT is still one hell of a leader and a very hard worker. That could be enough. He is a great Buckeye, one of the few record setting all timers like Archie. I hope JT gets drafted and makes a positive impact in the NFL. I wish JT the best. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!

They are hand timed runs in a favorable environment (no scouts, nor crowds of spectators). They are not intentionally inflated; they are just less accurate than the Combine’s laser measurements because of human error. In 2015, the Combine screwed up their times as well by up to a tenth of a second for the first two days, so it’s not like anything is perfect. I think everyone is underestimating the pressure that comes when a player has to run in front of scouts with millions on the line. A single flinch or hesitation can make a great run average or an average run poor. It’s a bitch, but that’s life.

New Orleans Buckeyes just got stronger. Their secondary is going to be NASTY with lockdown Lattimore, Vonn Bell, and Kurt Coleman. Coleman is an INT machine, Lattimore shuts down half the field, and Bell just had a monster year bringing the pain on every player in his vicinity. Hell yeah. Go Buckeyes!!!!!!!

Comment 05 Mar 2018

And now Coleman signed for more money with their division rival. I’m damn sure Coleman is going to bring the pain to the Panthers and Teddy Ginn Jr is going to bring the fire. At least Carolina’s dumbass GM will be able to find a position with the Browns after he is justifiably fired. Sooooooooo freaking stupid.
