Mark this down! By the 6th game of the season Gus Johnson will be uttering phrases like " Master of disaster Teague" just destroyed the defense again. He will rush for close to 2000 yards this year. Every year we have the same concern. First it was "How are we going to replace Beanie?" Then it was "We will never be able to replace El Guapo, then "There will never be another Zeke", now the concern is "JK is impossible to replace". Master Teague will be really really good this year and will be in the running for the Heisman by the following season! We just need to sit back and enjoy the show.
This IS the argument! He was NOT defenseless. The rule is supposed to protect a defenseless player. Had he been a running back and had stopped in his tracks and then Wade hit him, the call would never had been made. There are way too many things that took place with the Ref's in this game!
You cant use the "If he had carried he would have" as a genuine comparison. You are trying to compare two completely different types of football. When Archie played he was running against a 9 man front. Everyone knew he was going to be carrying the ball and they still could not stop or catch him. The game today with RPO's is a completely different animal. I absolutely love JK ALL DAY but trying to compare the two from virtually two different environments is impossible! You even mentioned part of this when you mentioned Archie's size. He is undersized for todays game but so are some of the other great players from the past.
Until someone else has TWO Heisman Trophy's to compare with Archie's, all of the other stats are meaningless to me.
Last year completely different scheme and coaches = Brendon White sat behind multiple players.
This year different coaches and different scheme = Brendon White sitting behind players again.
I don't want to hear that he should have been given chances..... HE WAS! You earn those during practice and by two different coaching staffs he was believed by those coaches to NOT BE starting material! You don't see what the coaches see everyday in practice. The coaches have their careers at stake by playing the players that give the team the best chance to win. If you believe that two different coaching staffs at The Ohio State University don't play a player for any other reason than they are not as good of an option you also believe that the world is flat and no one is going to change your mind. I would just tell everyone on this site to just ignore your ignorant a$$.
I heard Urban during the Big Championship broadcast say something interesting. He said if you take Haskins and put him together with Barrett you would have Justin Fields. If you use all of Fields running abilities along with his arm this team becomes "unstoppable".
"It is impossible to stop!"
I've got to believe that this will be the case. There is no holding back Fields any longer and if he is healthy Clemson will have to try to keep up with us. 2 stops and we run away with this game!
I have said this a few times throughout the year on this site. This team is different than any other team I have witnessed wearing Scarlet and Gray in my over 60 years of watching. This game will not be close. Chase will have his way with Wiscy and they wont be able to get away with holding him like Scum did. JK will show on the field that he is the best running back in the nation and Justin and his receiving crew are going to feast on Wiscy. The only thing that keeps this game under a 50 point spread is because we let up in the fourth quarter.
Ryan Day is going to send the message to the rest of the nation that tOSU is the real deal and this team is special. He is also aware that we need to make sure we are the number one seed. The way to do that is to come out fast and not let up for 3 full quarters. Even when we are up by 30 in the 3rd, expect to continue to see our starters until the 4rth quarter!
OSU wins going away 62-3
Why doesn't OHIO slip into Kentucky?..... Because Michigan sucks!
Why don't they have ice cubes in that state up north?..... They forgot the recipe!
Why don't they have natural grass in the big house?..... to keep the cheerleaders from grazing!
A very wealthy Sheik was on his death bed and went to each of his three sons and asked "What can I buy for you that would make you as happy as you could be before I die?
First Son: I love to fly how about my own 747 airplane with all of the bells and whistles. Sheik: It is done! Bought it for him.
Second Son: I love to be on the water, how about my own cruise ship? Sheik: It is done! Bought it for him.
Third Son: I love Disney Land! Sheik: Are you sure that is all you want just to go to Disney Land?
Third Son replies: Well I would like one of those Mickey Mouse outfits! Sheik: It is done! bought him that team up north!
Logged on just to voice my agreement there! Upvotes for all!
Blu, I enjoy your takes even if I disagree. We as fans often overlook some of the talent on the other side of the ball. When you post you can tell that you watch both teams and have more of an interest than just be a troll. You point out players that I subsequently watch only to see your take is spot on. Takes a lot of balls to not just come on this site and troll your way around. I have NEVER seen a team like the one that is coming up to AA this weekend. I have NEVER watched a team (I am over 60) that I believe is the absolute best team in the country. There is something special about this team. Maybe it is the players, maybe it is the coaches or maybe it is the combination of both but I truly believe that there is only one team that is capable of beating this version of the Buckeyes and that is the Buckeye's themselves. I witnessed the 68/69 squads and they were special but this group is not only talented but also just humble enough to take your lunch money while saying thank you! Even when you haven't had anything to eat in a week!
You're damn straight I will! 42-10 Buckeyes
Its kind of like "I am going to TAKE a shit" when actually you LEAVE a shit. Its just one of those phrases that tends to be oxymoronic.
I think just the opposite! Watch the D line in the Maryland game and you will see the pressure and sacks by multiple people. This was Rutgers and they got up 21 points in a matter of 5-6 minutes. I believe that they were playing to "not get hurt". They knew they did not have to go all out to defeat this team. They made their statement last week. Chase is unbelievable but the rest of our defense is outstanding as well.
Just like the defense did not sink because Chase was not available it changes the dynamic drastically! Fields causes the opposing team to have to account for his ability to run. How many times has Justin saved us on 3rd downs when he took off (quite a few)How many times did he get out of a defenders grasps on 3rd downs only to find an open receiver? (quite a few). Enough that I would say that some of those blowouts would have been competitive games and then some. Justin obviously make the running game more viable and that has knock on effects all over the field and throughout the game.
As much as Chug has shown he can throw a nice long ball, in my opinion we would be pressed at the very least and struggle at the most to come away with W's against TtuN as well as Pen u.
Please don't take this as though I think he (Chug) is a slog, he has really come a long ways however I believe the coaching staff would probably agree that there is a very large and measurable step down between Justin and Chug.
I have to apologize to all of the posters here at 11 Warriors! After hearing all of the concerns last week coming after the announcement of Chase being suspended, I stated: "This team is a different team than any person has ever seen!" They will come out and make a statement about who they are as a team. I predicted a score of 62 - 0. I was wrong. Sorry!
In all of my 60+ years of being a Buckeye fan I have never seen a team with this much chemistry. It is almost with disbelief that I watch each week waiting for them to "Iowa" or "Purdue" a game. After they dispatched Wisconsin I made a promise to myself that I was going to try with everything I have to just sit back, watch and enjoy this season for what it is. !00% unbelievable!
This is going to be a season for the ages. ENJOY IT! This team is not only loaded they are being coached up at a level that I have never seen before. They don't believe they are entitled to anything. However they are going to take everything in their path and just leave no doubt about how good they are through their play. The other thing I enjoy watching is the amount of fun this team is having doing their thing. As I said ENJOY IT! We can tell our grandchildren how blessed we were to watch that 2019/2020 team turn the college football world upside-down!
This is a completely different team that will be taking the field tomorrow than any we have witnessed period. I don't want to diminish CY's ability, however this team is laser focused and will bring a beatdown early. The 3rd string will be playing the whole second half and will keep Maryland scoreless to send a message to the college football world!
tOSU 62 Maryland 0 mark it down!
Please stop with the "that other team did worse and didn't get a thing done to them!" For one we are not the other team. Secondly there were two players from Clemson ruled ineligible to play this entire year for trace amounts of PEDs. I know they were not 5 star players so please don't come back with they were third string players.... My point is if you are going to state something as a comparison, please be factual. Otherwise you risk looking like the HOMER you are for regurgitating something that "I read it on the internet"
Now..... Get off my lawn
That just could not be True! Don't you read? Tuf sucks, must have been someone else!
Just re-watched the game and specifically the LB play. This indeed was one of Tuf Borland's best games. I do trust the coaches to play the player(s) that give us the best chance to win. I am not defending Tuf's speed, but as I replied to a post last week about "if Borland is in the game we are going to get run over." This game more than any other set him up for success. He was gap sound and only missed one tackle when he was being dragged down. I will say I saw more obvious holding (talking) by Wiscy's offensive line or we would have held them to zero yards!
61 years old. Just got laid this AM. Forget the reveal crap.
Now get off my lawn!
That is what I like about this site! We may not agree and that's OK. After reading all that posts on this site after the OU game it sure would seem to me that you were in the minority. There were a few that made statements along the line of yours...… "If you don't want Baker doing that then..." however the majority were along the lines of "Baker is a d..khead" and had no class.
At least you can take what you dish out! Thanks for the reply
Downvote me all you want! I have some very close acquaintances that are diehard Badger fans. They are some of the most gracious fans I have ever met. I have attended games with them as a guest and attended in my Buckeye gear even when we were not playing them. To a person they have treated me with the utmost respect and not ever have I had someone disrespect me for being a Buckeye. Just remember that they LOVE their team just like we love ours and it hurts when you lose a big game! There was no need to troll the Wiscy fans. We played a good game and did our talking on the field. That should have been enough. To add insult to injury after the beatdown that took place lends credence to all of the non buckeyes out there that say we are full of ourselves and are unbearable!
If this was the fighting franklins or ttun, then smack talk, troll, prod and poke away!! For all of those that disagree, think back and remember the end of the Oklahoma game and how you felt when a flag was (attempted) planted in the shoe! I posted this because I was asked today what I thought abou
Okiebuck, You live in Owasso? So do I. Off of 86th street north and memorial .
