Thank you, Buck 1961! You are one of my favorites on this board! Pleasure reading your posts as well.
The speed of Fleming looks almost "altered". He was in fast forward and everyone else was in regular speed. All four of the defenders started to give chase and Fleming hit 5th gear. You could see all four shut it down and give up because he was so much faster, it wasn't even fair.
Reminded me of the Coyote and the Road Runner!
This could be one of the few years where our starting QB is not a captain... wow.
Hammy, I tend to agree with you but this is a talented group of LB's and he may not be a starter if the young'uns step up the way they should.
With the comment he just made quoted above your post, Seltsa, he already is.
Very smart young man as well.
I'm in the camp that thinks Chris will have an outstanding year given the fact that he will see much more playing time this season. I think he has the potential to be very special.
I love what he said: "this is a bigger job than the Patriots. You can be anywhere in the country and there are Buckeyes everywhere. This is the biggest and best job in football.”
Made my chest stick out with pride and put tears in my eyes. He said what we all feel.
I hope he stays for a LOOONG TIME.
I would put some of the run blocking issues on Urban. Third or fourth down and less than a yard to go - sometimes inches - and he still does a shotgun snap. In many short yardage situations it is best to put the QB directly under center. Getting that first, initial push is crucial.
Just trying to help my fellow Buckeye nuts!!
I'm here for the ride, so I must be "the fat".... damn.
Warren De La Salle is a private school that is Division 2 here. They have D1 through 8. Over the past 5 or so years, De La Salle has been a very good football program - for meeshigan standards. I would compare them to a Trotwood-Madison to Akron Buchtel type program.
I'm thinking even the crew that officiated last year's OSU-scum game may have even thrown a flag there.
Thank you, Dan! I personally got to witness the Big O finish a fast break or two against my alma mater, Bellevue. The young man was a freak of an athlete for an offensive lineman, no doubt.
As long as we have Coach LJ on our staff, I am NOT WORRIED about the D-line.
Sucks to be
those defenses Don Brown. I like this a little bit better.
Maine - if we can keep Fields healthy, I like our chances to beat both PSU and scum at the end of the year. If we can do that and get into the B1G Championship Game, I like our chances at a playoff berth.
Weave, if Day can have a Meyer-type season, I WILL TAKE a few close ones. Undefeated and getting to the B1G Championship will set us up for a playoff spot, even with a few close calls.
Here is my dream scenario:
Pick up 6 more teams: Pitt for a PSU rival, Missouri for Illinois, other possible schools are WVU, Texas, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Iowa State, Notre Dame even though we should let them die alone, Texas Tech, TCU, or Louisville. The conference divisions would be The Original Big Ten and The New Big Ten. Become the first super conference in the nation before the SEC beats us to it.
And to add to it, Fitz has a LOT of moxy and his teams always seem to get it as well. He and his 'Cats scare me.
MichiBuck - I am one that thinks PSU has a "down" year compared to their last two. Also, Lewis and all his arse-hole alum can't be wrong ALL the time. I mean, even a broken clock is right twice a day. As much as I hate to say it, we will eventually lose a game or two to scum sometime. Do I think it happens this year - no but this is one of the few times where we may be a little vulnerable heading to the Armpit of America - or A-squared as the locals up here call it.
The game that scares me the most is the Northwestern game - there at night and they are always tough. Especially add to the fact that we beat them in the B1G Championship Game. They will be hungry. The game at Lincoln is the second scariest to me - new coach with something to prove against a powerhouse program. Scum is the third scariest, just because it's our HATED RIVAL. I hope their team has the cockiness and arrogance that I am hearing from many fans. They think this is a phone-it-win with Day as a new HC. I hope we score 70 on these assholes.
Aha! Thank you for that, I forgot.
I think Dobbins will rush for 1,200-1,400 yards this year and be a large force in a run game that should be back in the top 15-20 nationally at the year's end.
I feel like I've been out of the loop with the O-line... Jonah Jackson is a surprise to me. I didn't pay much attention to him in the Spring Game. Good for this young man!
If you could place a bet on one of these records to never be broken, it's Archie's 31 consecutive 100-yard games, for sure. That is almost unbelievable and if I didn't actually watch it for myself, I wouldn't believe it.
Simply amazing college athlete.
LOL Lighteyes, kinda like a certain team up north??
