It being good for golf hinges on the number of tv sets tuned in. I can 1000% assure you, thousands of people were only tuned in Sunday because of Tiger being in contention, including myself. 

We can debate the optics of it and whether his own mistakes should really make this a 'comeback for the ages' but Tiger being 'good for golf' cannot be denied.

Granted, he's not listed 3rd on our depth chart, but Georgia fans were laughing about Fields' spring game stat line, despite many buckeye fans being excited about what they saw. 

Just bringing this up to point out: fans of their team assume it'll definitely get better for their guy while thinking the worst about the guy that left. 

I think both martell and fields will end up being really good, maybe even great, college qbs, but no I dont think one scrimmage really matters in the long run. 

Comment 06 Apr 2019

Everyone has the right to do their due diligence and find out as much info as possible, but that those first couple lines rub me the wrong way a little bit. 

“Show me your depth chart?” I get wanting to play early, but if you’re secure in your abilities and work ethic, that wouldn’t matter to you. He’s listed almost nothing but top football programs so there’s something they all are interested in. Stop worrying about competition and outwork everyone. 

Just my thoughts. 

Comment 04 Apr 2019

It would be fun for the 20 that fit the bill and got to be a part. Literally no one else could afford to have football anymore, without those games that teams like Ohio state pay near a million dollars for. 

Thats why it’ll never happen. Even the Rutgers of the world need the OSU, PsU games for revenue purposes, and they’re already a P5 team. 

Comment 03 Apr 2019

A lot to unpack in today’s SS. 

1) Todd Haley is egotistical idiot who either gets his way or submarines the entire team. 

2) “Mike Weber couldn’t beat out JK Dobbins” so they drop him down draft boards? But it’s okay that Josh Jacobs was, like, 3rd string at best at Alabama and he’s the consensus #1 RB in the draft? Oooookay. 

Comment 29 Mar 2019

I get the gist of your discussion, but did you notice who would've come in the game this year had he been taken off the floor? 

He didnt provide a ton of offense at times, but his defense was really good to great almost always. It is for these reasons that guys like Ledee and Ahrens didnt see the floor in the final few weeks. When you have to rely on defense to win games, you cannot have breakdowns on defense and Wesson rarely did. 

As we move forward, maybe guys begin stepping up and provide better offense, which will reduce his role some. I agree based on Andre's abilities, he should be getting 20-25, but based on the team dynamics this past year, 30-35 was certainly warranted to me. Time will tell what his senior year holds for him. 

Comment 25 Mar 2019

I'm a younger fan so I'll stick with guys I remember seeing play live, which starts with the 99 team. I'm also going to do this based on the makeup of how the team would look and play together. 

C-Oden-not a close 2nd for true C 

PF-Sullinger-imagine another dominant big paired with Sully so he can extend his game like he could already and not have to be the only significant post player? Good luck 

SF-Redd--another floor spacer that can do it all with the ball in his hands

SG-Russell-yet again, another guy who can shoot and get to the bucket with ease

PG-Conley-easily the best true PG with the ball in his hands over my time watching

Bench: Craft (everyone needs that kind of heart and effort), Turner (hard to leave off starting lineup being a NPOY), Deshaun Thomas (another floor spacer and as the tourney shows everyone year, cant have enough shooters)

Ill throw in Lighty, KBD, Tate to round out a deeper roster although not sure where Tate would fit into this team given the talent inside and abilities of others. 

Comment 20 Mar 2019

It's quite remarkable how clueless some people really are. Saying Holtmann wasn't right of the job because they barely made the tournament this year when most of Matta's guys are gone now.... 

That's really something i've seen written. Its astonishing. 

Comment 15 Mar 2019

I think pre-game analysis has started to seep into some of the rankings recently, unfortunately. But cool look at a great run of buckeye football that came up short of a national title, similar to the recent run of success that has only resulted in one. 

Still the 2 most dominant runs in school history! 

Comment 11 Mar 2019

I cannot believe this program has elite level athletes and Ryan Day has to question whether these guys can grasp learning how to take an under center snap. 

I started playing qb in the 3rd grade. I can assure you, it’s not that difficult to figure out how to handle the snap and take the appropriate steps to handoff/fake to a rb and set up to throw. 

Comment 09 Mar 2019

I understand the 'efficiency' part of it but my point is, this is guy is a 1 trick pony: he catches deep balls and you hope he can convert them into touchdowns. But he cannot run crisp routes because he's too big to get out of his breaks. That's much easier to defend at the NFL level. 

I think he can certainly help a team out, but at what price? Certainly not worth a 1st round pick to me. 

Comment 07 Mar 2019

He only played 6 games this past year. If you double his output to get a full season, he's considerably below the top 2 in catches and ends up 2nd in yards. Ole Miss isn't run heavy and he still wasn't even the most productive reciever on his own team. 

Comment 04 Mar 2019

I dont want this taken the wrong way because I loved Devin Smith as a buckeye but there's a reason hes not surviving in the NFL. 

Metcalf is devin smith reborn. He averages a ton of yards on his catches because they're all deep balls that go for touchdowns a lot of the time. Yes, you need homerun hitters on your team to open up an offense, but a top 10/15 pick for a guy who cannot run good routes is a bad idea.

His 3 cone and 20 yard shuttle were literally worse than TOM BRADY. Change of direction is pretty important for WR. 

Maybe he'll have a solid NFL career and I know someone will draft him with a way-too-high pick, I just hope it's not my team. The Steelers know how to draft and develop WR, so I'm assuming they know better. 

Comment 01 Mar 2019

Let's put it this way. Unless Teague makes a major jump, Dobbins is walking out with the first team offense every game next year. He and Weber split that duty last year. Of course depth is important, but OSU creates depth in mop up duty, not with games on the line. Weber and Dobbins were both trusted in those instances last year. If the buckeyes are in a tight game to begin the year, Dobbins is the only RB being put on the field right now. 

Comment 01 Mar 2019

If talent is equal, i agree. But the coaches jobs are to win football games on Saturdays, not 'save' a player's body for the NFL. Coaches will do what's best for the team and that's giving the ball to the more talented player. To begin this year, there is zero chance Teague is as prepared as Dobbins, despite looking solid in limited action last year. 

Comment 28 Feb 2019

Dont think there's much doubt, at least to me, that Murray will now be the top qb taken. Right, wrong, or indifferent. 

Still think Haskins ends up with the better career but I see the allure of Murray. Just don't see a lot of Baker comparisons within their actual play.
