Watched it on TV. Thought all the black in the crowd look cool on a night game. Like the black uniforms too, and would love to see them paired with our regular helmets.
Don't mind the uniforms, but I wish we'd stick with our current helmets. But since we are rocking the black, all the coaches ought to wear the Woody Block O hat. Just my take.
I hope the Buckeyes never go away from recruiting kids who step up to the challenges of top level competition. That's a major reason why our program is where it is.
Chase Young, besides being a dominant force out there, I really get hype watching how excited he gets on the sideline cheering for his backups. That attitude from the best players on the team is what perpetuates a winning culture. I hope Chase stays healthy, we get the most out of his college playing days, he makes his money in the league, and he always represents and returns to support his Buckeyes from the sideline.
That clip was funny. :)
If I recall correctly, he was the last to sign in his class. From reading different Buckeye forums, there were a lot folks who believed that he did not deserve an offer based on his "stars." I think it was Fickell who went to bat for him, much like Coach Fick did for Darron Lee. Loved how Fick sought out and believed in the talent among the locals.
He seems like such a cool kid. I'm so impressed how he acknowledges the areas where he needs to improve. It's a sure thing that he's back next year, right? I lose track...is the rule still that you can't get drafted into the NFL until you've been 3 years removed from high school?
If he continues to improve and stays healthy, I honestly believe that he'll be the best college QB by the end of the season
Happy for Hilliard. Wish he had a more of an injury-free career because I always thought the dude could play. Fast and hits like a truck when healthy. Hope he experiences a great senior season.
Reminded me of when Zeke used to clean guys out as a blocker when he played for the Bucks.
Appreciate the comment about Amir at the very end. He also broke up a pass play headed for the endzone, I think earlier in that same drive. He's looked solid every time he's been out there.
Hope they are building a good bong with Puff.
Does anyone know if Jaylen Harris got in at all against FAU? Hope he turns in a solid year this year.
Those who remember watching play know that Dials was a BEAST. I think, unfortunately he had bad knees and that affected his career. Happy to see him with the program.
Can't wait to see McCall out there in key situations. I think this staff will know how to use him, and I hope he brings the maturity of an upperclassmen to this team. He's experienced the highs and lows, and that experience can be very valuable to the team. And I think the kid is electric with the ball and a little bit of space.
A Golden Eagle player fouled Buford while attempting to rebound a missed jump shot. Buford boxed out. Ref called it, and sent Buford to the line.
What about Jaylen Clark for California? Is he still in play? 11 W did this story on him a little while back. https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-basketball-recruiting/2019/04/103717/ohio-state-target-jaylen-clarks-family-gives-him-unlikely-connection-to-columbus-buckeyes
He should've at least played when it was visibly obvious that Braxton's shoulder was really bothering him during the game.
I hope he silences critics this year. He's been inconsistent, but he's shown ability and feistiness that I appreciate. There was a play , I think it was against Northwestern in the Big 10 championship game, where Arnette contested a pass and never gave up on the play, wrestling the ball and ripping it from the receiver's grasp. I think they reviewed it and the officials ruled that the receiver maintained possession long enough, but that play shows the type of intensity Arnette can bring. He needs to be mentally sharper, and it sounds like he fully understands that.
Also, much respect for his dedication toward getting involved with the youth. I'm sure he has a lot of wisdom for young people to learn from, and I'm glad he understands that responsibility.
QB run is effective, but I just hated seeing it as it was seemingly the staple of our offense. It doesn't make sense to me to have your QB leading in rushing attempts in a game when your tailbacks are pretty damn good. But yeah, hopefully the ability for the QB to run will open things up for everybody this season.
Best Buckeye news I've read about in awhile. Really hope it works out for Diallo at The Ohio State University.
Free ride to college + money saved = flight ticket to Africa
Thanks, EvanstonBuckeye. If the reports are accurate, it will speak a lot about Trey if he takes care of business and ends up suiting up for the Buckeyes. I'd really appreciate ultimately reading a successful story about Trey that involves him being a contributor to our football team down the road.
I apologize for being late to the party here. Sorry if it's already been covered, but could someone tell me how folks know that Trey is up to 350 pounds? Source? Thanks.
Maybe we should ask Mr. Knighton what he likes?
Jaylan, do you prefer ribeye, filet mignon, or sirloin?
No mention of my guy, Super Demario. Hoping he gets and stays healthy, because I just think the kid is electric in the open field, and has a knack for finding it. McCall has had a few years to mature mentally, so the consistency needs to be there for him. It's time for him to be a major contributor.
