Yes, In the beginning against ND, then in November--speaking of whom, I think ND gets somewhat similar treatment, but probably because of a popularly inflated view their schedule.... A problem is that The Game is The RIvalry--anything can happen. I very much want to see what Day, HC, can do with this game. I knows he knows its importance to his new role.
Good luck to him. I hope he succeeds. It will reflect well on Ohio State if he does.
Woody loved the special teams and his specialists were tight. It's in the Buckeye DNA as long as I can remember.
He could when Meyer was staring him down from a few yards away, during the spring games. I felt his frustration, really. PKing is so much a combination of form and headgame. Anyway, best of luck to him pursuing everything he wants. Live long and prosper, and make us proud
There's stretching and there's warmups. Warmups are still recommended. It's also been recommended that stretching after exertion is beneficial and doesn't pose the risk injury that stretching before exertion. I really cannot tell what they're doing or when it's being done.
they look forward to seeing how he can change his body
This is interesting. It will test him, his commitment, before he even comes to campus, so the staff is going to know pretty quick, quite a lot about their recruit.... The starstruck remark i take to be a compliment--nothing wrong with saying you've been picky about your final choice, especially when your choice has set expectations for you before you even begin.
I'll try to find it--do you have a link for the lazy?
I think Isaiah overcame similar troubles--certainly not every challenge, but he improved a whole lot. This guy has Prince's work ethic and applies himself here, he'll better than succeed. I'm also thinking that Studrawa's underappreciated some (but not by Day).
Thank you to the team, and thank you again, Aubrey.
Those flashes of brilliance are becoming more frequent, imo. Get that 4/4 back beat grinding consistently, and rock next season.
Yes, exactly. Power and agility and an intuitiveness that's innate. You see it in the film The stuff legendary slobs are made of. Seriously impressed by the guy, and he chose right. This program and school will give him everything he needs to make his print.
You can have a very good season and still be wanting. The program is, and has been, an obvious contender in the seasons I've been reading here. That's a strong tribute to staff and players however those cards will fall.
*I'm still trying to get a feel for the shots taken on our net throughout the season--some opponents have appeared to put up a gatling-gun ratio, but not consistently.
Yeah, this sounds very good. He's going to fit somewhere, really well--but sooner's better than later--and again, this sounds very good.
Interesting coach and player perspectives. Coach knows there's no-o-o lack of motivation, discipline is key. This is when the best get themselves into that zone and get it done.
The TEs were used differently last season once the rushing production, especially as the field got short, was addressed by the O-staff. They were used in retro/creative blocks and relied upon as receivers for key conversions at very critical times. Statistics don't tell the story all the time. I'm hardly a coach, but last season's performance felt very different for the group once the O-staff Day and W&S got the offense coordinated to address the multiple O issues. It really was a tremendous year the group, what they did themselves and for the team. It's going to be better this coming season so long as the QB position enjoys a similar level of maturity. Dwayne was the other big part of the fix equation--and not just his head and ability to pass to whomever wherever, but also the way he began to run the ball himself.
Both teams have great designs, I've thought.
Sounds as if LJ and Mattison will complement each other very well..
I really think that school was extraordinarily dense to let those two slip away. Mattison, in particular, his vintage of achievement and steeped in that school's colors. I'm amazed--stupified is a better description. Their o has really gone nowhere, but yet they release key staff from their d.
Fitz fizzing, haha
I got it to show by shortening the address to
I don't see it--where'd it go? Now I gotta know what/who it is
Here's what the Blade reported (omg) 16.5 years ago:"Yes, it's a big game" Some good insider insights in the piece.
Hope I didn't post this too late. I, personally, never doubted he took the The Game most seriously. We all could see the dumbfounded shock and horror on his face--although I may be projecting some of my own emotion.
I was overseas, in a faraway place the year Earle (of PA) was fired. I came home at the start of Cooper's first year. The state, not yet a nation, was divided probably more ways than into two sides, but it really was an ugly unwelcoming environment for the guy. To keep things hot he would make accidental remarks over the years, that kept sizeable portion of public opinion inflamed against him. As an alum, a fan, and once a very young kid awestruck by WWH, I judge coaches by how well they carry forward the great tradition here, at the real OSU, and there are multiple points I'm going to judge them on. For John Cooper, The Game: 'F,' as is a Capitol effinfailure. But, on other points, such as the quality of his program and his student athletes--and his national profile regular-season wins--for example, beating psu was huge in that day. The guy (of TN) shines as a Buckeye and no one is happier with The Game turnaround that (my personal fav) Tressel began, and which continues to this day.
Yes, this is one, thumbs up definitely
I think they're playing not just a little for their seniors' benefit--and yes, now's definitely the time
Yes, exactly what I was thinking along with some sorta version of 'personal brand awareness' that incentivizes, materially (nothing wrong with that), all the rules regs expectations these athletes have to live up to from so early on, even in their 'pre' careers.
Anyway, the article was a very worthy read, good to see. Thanks
They just especially needed some creativity with TE usage injected after those first several games, and I think we can say that Day has liked working with both W&S. If the O can perform overall as it did down the stretch last season, it will recruit itself, imo.
Munford was quietly one of the most consistent and reliable members
Yes, how true that is. I think there's talent, but how the group comes together, who leads, how effective the O-line staff are developing the group ... those are the questions. If it's cloudy, it's cloudy in an astronomical way because I think the talent and potential are there, and bright.
