We are told that Mattison is a good recruiter, BUT, does he really understand the level of talent tOSU is after, rather than what is going on with TTUN??
Keep it at noon or no later than 1:00. Reason? The PLAYERS get up at a decent time, get to the pre-game meal, participate in the skull session and get fired up by the Band, go to the Woody and start taping and dressing and mentally prepping, warm up and then start beating up on TTUN. It seems to be a smooth time flow.
As opposed to waiting around all day to play the game and maybe not perform up to their best. Just sayin'.
Still am not totally comfortable with Mattison. I can't say why other than I still have not heard him buy into TTUN instead of xxxxigan. Just me, I guess.
Approximately how many current or 2018 tOSU teammates have tweeted him since he left? Less than zero??
I disagree about Fields bothering Tate. Go back and watch his Rose Bowl interview when asked if he wanted to know Justin Fields...his answer of "no" told it all and I detected a bit of fear come across his face. IMO
Anyone remember the beginning years of a Heisman QB who now starts for an Ohio team in the NFL? Don't dismiss Matthew Baldwin yet.
He lost me when at the Rose Bowl interview and was asked the question about knowing Justin Fields he said "no" and did not leave it at that...was led right into the question about..'wanting to know him'... and quickly replied "no". How great of a teammate is that! Does he say the same about any 2019 recruit? Must spell TEAM with an I.
Doubt Tate would last very long:
JT 6-2; 220
TM 5-10; 185? Quicker but not as durable.
Put TM at Slot receiver...he wants to and is best at running with the ball.
I've been on that page for months...unless Tate is able to beat everyone in the QB room for the job. Have doubts, though, due to size issue and NFL possibility for him. Maybe he can grow...this ain't high school.
Trust that the coaches have vetted Fields well enough that they feel he will fit in the tOSU 'family'. Perhaps Tate's original comments were not meant as they appeared to infer [ modified somewhat, recently ] but I took them to be not very welcoming to a potential new 'brother'. Could be some dissension brewing.
IMO...Tate is not big enough to play QB at the next level but may be a fantastic slot receiver. Maybe he should look at going that route if Fields is that good.
I have not been sold on TM at QB due to his size. Wonder if he has the hands to perform in the slot? Talk about a dangerous yac guy...guess we will have to see how it all plays out. Will be interesting for sure.
What a fine young man! A credit to his Parents and family to be so well-grounded. A truly exceptional Buckeye who will do very well in life no matter what the future brings.
I don't drink; maybe you do...How about giving the young BUCKEYE some praise instead of mouthing off that he is not. Whoever voted for him, for whatever reason, is obviously smarter than you are. How in the hell can you put the young BUCKEYE down? Grapeass...
AND Curtis managed to get the logo on the ball just right!!
Another wonderful piece, Ramsey!
Fans can say or do whatever they want, but as an institution and a football program Ohio State reveres and respects its rival.
Michigan reveres and respects Michigan. This strategy is not in the cards.
If not for Iowa in 2017 and Purdue in 2018.....
Agree that TTUN is too high. They COULD NOT beat either Florida or LSU.
Agree with Ruby...When the Buckeyes have only two in the backfield and it is a run, how many does the defense have to account for? If both Weber and Dobbins are there it makes the defense have to think first.
Unless, of course, Haskins shows he can run. :)
Can't stop laughing the dance of PSU 71 and 74! It's like...'WTH just happened"??
These are some high-quality individuals and I enjoy getting to "know" them better. I do wish that somehow the interviews could be conducted with a microphone closer to them to better hear what they have to say. Could not understand Coach Alford hardly at all.
Is Robert Smith on the 1993 4x400 team the football running back Robert Smith?
The video is no longer up. What happened to it?
DJ, you are a MENSA troll.
Perhaps Coach Conner? Sometimes those who love a game need to stay in it. Good luck whatever comes next.
NONE of this seeding crap means a thing. Just win the next game and then the next one. Perhaps the PSU loss came at just the right time to get the focus back. We owe Pig State one, anyway.
The guys are playing very well together right now...
I truly believe the 2018 Buckeyes will be a better team, but without Kerry Coombs, there will not be as much passion. Coach Meyer will find a great new coach/recruiter, but he cannot replace the heart and soul commitment that Coombs brought to each and every moment he was with tOSU.
