Took your advice. You're right, bro. Got a great laugh watching him trying "not to blame the players." Had to share. https://247sports.com/college/north-carolina/Article/UNC-Ohio-State-Roy-Williams-Postgame-139861075/
You just saved me from doing some research. Thanks!
My initial thought was that we ran a lot on first down, and you confirmed that. Run or pass, we need positive yards, at least 3 in my opinion, on first down. Even though Dobbins got loose on a few, there seemed to be a lot of no gains and negative yardage run plays, a lot on first down. Penalties hurt us too, killing drives. And of course, the fumbles.
We need to be much sharper this upcoming week, and Day said something after the game to the extent that this last game got the attention of our players. Combined with the facts that the boys up north are playing their best, and the game is on their turf, we are definitely going to have to earn this next one. But hey, that's what it's all about. Confident that guys like Dobbins, Chase Young, KJ, and Malik will have our guys ready and are going to lay it all out on that field for every Buckeye player to follow. Getting goose chills already, man.
Hahahaha!!! Great movie. Don't be a "Stu." Classic.
Congrats, Miyan! Rep for the home state.
Not so fast, my friend. Heard the same story, but it didn't end with Howard. Des told Corso, and Corso wrote the letter. Turns out Corso is still bitter about the Buckeyes kicking the Hoosiers asses back in the 70s and 80s.
Just what I heard.
Hope Miyan Williams is a Buckeye. He looks like a punishing, hard nose, and determined runner. Would love to see how he develops under Marotti. Running backs like Williams put opposing teams to sleep in the 2nd half.
I hope all the players with a 5th or 6th year option do what's best for them, and that everything works out. That being said, could someone clarify how 5th and 6th year players affect the scholarship numbers? If guys like Cooper, Hilliard, and Saunders stick around (which would be awesome), would that impact the numbers of the incoming recruiting class?
Thanks in advance, y'all.
My one complaint is that are short yardage run game was weak. JK and the gang failed to punch it in on 3rd and 4th and short late in the first half, and the Rutgers defense were getting penetration more than a few times. It could that we were running some vanilla stuff, or it was the result of a lack of motivation from our guys, but we definitely didn't play up to our standards in that area. Hopefully, JK and the o-line watching film on this past Saturday performance only helps to refuel their fire and we blow these next teams up in the trenches.
I'd be happy with Miyan Williams, an Ohio kid who runs tough. Those backs come in handy late in a tight game. Take Kiner the next year, and we'll have our thunder and lightning.
Was happy to see Demario get loose.
It can be done. But, you have to be a badass. Mo C, Orlando Pace, Big Kat...
I do know which play you mean. And yeah, McCall didn't make that block. It was like he was too slow to react. But he had some other blocks where he did the job nicely.
He threw some nice blocks too. He's a good player who happens to be on a top-notch team. What I really like is that he is showing that he's an unselfish kid, the way he's delivering blocks, carrying out assignments, and celebrating with his teammates. I appreciate that stuff.
The keys for us, in my opinion, is that our players stay healthy, and that they keep their "team first" mentality. It's humility and unselfishness that makes teams great. I love how the team shows so much excitement for each other, like when Blake Haubeil boots a 50 yarder through the uprights. And I really am encouraged when I hear JK talk about how he isn't satisfied with his own performances. Let's stay hungry, and it won't matter who lines up against us.
Thanks. Been wanting to see him get more and more meaningful PT. Seems like he shows out every spring game and makes plays every time he's given the opportunity. Was bummed out when I heard about his injury earlier this year. Kids like him make our program great.
Hopefully, he has the right people giving him encouragement. The talent is there, but he's in a tough situation. He threw a bad pick at a key moment in last night's game. Other than that, he was often in predictable passing downs and the Redskins o-line didn't give him much time to throw. On the last sack he took, the Redskins were flagged for an illegal shift and a hold as the Vikings basically had a jail break opportunity to blitz. I have never played QB, but I'm not sure what more he was supposed to do there. The kid isn't playing with much confidence in himself, but his o-line needs to help out too.
Really appreciate this post and the SI article link. Hope the Buckeyes serve up some madness in March and April.
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. :)
