I cannot think of anyone writing these match-by-match summary articles any better. I can't see these things happen in person--thanks.
"Soon after the breakout performance, Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter followed him on Twitter. Then, Ohio State star Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys followed his account on Instagram."
I think Ruckert is another guy who's destined--He reminds me of John Frank (just great hand-eye, strength, and overall athletic abilities)
"I actually like Tuesdays and Wednesday better than Saturdays."
Totally ol' school, the good old ol' school, and my favorite quote from above, haha. Very lucky to have Wilson.
Late again for this class, but I'm really glad to read you pointed out that pass. One of the prettiest passes I've seen. Chuganov's face upon hearing the play called back was the most mature ygtbfkm expressions I've ever seen. And WIlson, wow.
no.4 and a delta of only -2 and -3?
sure give 'em pass for injury or whatever--whata joke--what other program/conference gets such benefit
“you can’t get behind a good team like Ohio State early like we did.”
So much an understatement, and in a plural sense, too, he sounds traumatized and in a state of pathological denial.
Just saying, Kirk has really nice threads. And this stuff reminds of the way he insinuated, or 'reported', himself in the Tressel and University admin debacle.
Not talking about not knowing beforehand and I'm not talking about any 'get outta jail' excuse. I'm talking about the ncaa system often enforcing unrealistic and absurd expectations on student athletes.
I'm not sure I could've walked this ridiculous line without making some mistake somewhere. It's like the system's setting them up to fail.
They can be very rude hosts. Cardale's appearance was fun, though. How about some more of that, but in Columbus, to put last year far behind.
I don't believe there's ever garbage time now--in big time cfb, time is money.
Well, nothing wrong with LV making it a challenge for the Buckeyes. If you're not a starter, this ought to be an opportunity to shine some and at the same time do something very beneficial for the prospects of the team in the not distant future. I'd be excited.
He's stealth, then shock and awe.
You know, on one hand you can see how the O personnel have evolved from recent years, but on the other you see how it stayed the same (e.g. the fundamentals of blocking, in particular) and just re-energized under Meyer.
Comparing these players from different HC tenures is much more of a beauty contest as opposed to throwing out stats and arriving at some objective conclusion or judgment between players. For one thing, Day looks like he's the best play caller we've had in a long time and with a diversely talented team Day's talent can be a positive and negative for individual position stats except for maybe the QB.
Well, this post made me laugh at myself bc I was kinda getting depressed by the time I read yours. Not a money for nothing job, for sure
There's nothing wrong with bringing up Pittman as a comparison. And I like that it keeps it Troy. To an extent I do see some similarity in movement, speed, strength and tenacity, and I like the idea of crediting teammates, especially benefits from the O-line and blocking receivers. But, JK has a a distinct athletic edge, I think, that surpasses the underrated Pittman--and I think that edge takes him beyond Pittman in terms of balance fluidity and quickness and, I think, too, JK is very underrated as a receiver (Here's a link to last year's underperformance highlights.) There's a very broad athletic performance on display, especially this year, that eye pops.
Fields reminds me of Smith at his best, but Fields is better overall and better much earlier and better in everything with just having transferred several months ago from a far south sec team. Jeesh
[I'm waiting on the article about JK and the other greats comparisons.]
What's remarkable about LJ is that he's developed his very own brand at the same time so-o-o much enhancing the esteem of his team and his employer. As someone said, these caliber of coaches just don't come around very often--especially non-HCs. I was his fan the moment I saw him wearing Buckeye gear after selling off all his blue and diaper white stuff.
Speaking for myself, I think the guy has been disabled medically for years. Unless we've been close in and genuinely knowledgeable about what went down during his tenure here, it's going to be hard separating out his decisions that were entirely determined by his style and character, from that particular disability. I'm also not interested in such a critique given the overwhelming benefits of Meyer's tenure here.... Btw, I give my fav of the whole bunch, Jim Tressel, the same treatment. WWH was a being belonging to greek mythology--that opinion's from the eyes and ears of a kid--so he's excluded--period.
There's still much football to be played, but at this point I'd say Ryan Day has been running the staff at a very high and tight well-directed and coordinated level. That no ego stuff early on wasn't coachspeak, it spoke to an enhancement in the program's culture he was set on achieving, absolutely. The character, the talent, the execution, the focus, week after week, have been all extraordinary. Post-natchamp there was the playcalling thingy on the O-side, past couple years there's been the defense thingy, including implosions against iowa and purdue. The program was reformed--there's still much football to be played, but this Day guy does look to be a stud.
And huge credit goes to Meyer for setting this whole thing up, with the wheels already spinning. I lived through the Woody to Earle transition, then 'Earle camp vs Coop camp' transition that never really resolved (not to mention watching debacle after debacle going on up in ann's treehouse. Meyer's first season speaks for itself, and this one so far, has been pure bliss.
So, give ppl two quality, highly ranked teams who want to club each other the old B1G way, and it's a winner. Makes me feel good, hah. It does.
Love our Slobs
marshmallows thrown with coins in them,
like, who's gonna eat that
Weather as a negative would take away more from wisc's offense, imo--I think their running game absolutely needs some passing in the play mix for them to put points up. I expect the game to have been determined by the Buckeye D no matter how the large a score difference at 4Q 00:00. And having so many game-ready players (packages) to move in and out of the D throughout the game is huge advantage.
running down the field pumping his fist
If my tv room were only long enough and the cord too ...
