Hawaii tackled very well in the open field - particularly against our playmakers. I know we always say this - but I genuinely feel that Hawaii was not as bad as advertised 

Comment 16 Dec 2014

Goodness, some people can be completely uninformed idiots. It's sad, really.

From an interview published YESTERDAY:

Q: Would you be open to redshirting? 

A: "It's really important for me to play quarterback. That's always been my dream since I was little, to take the snap out of the gun from the center in that college atmosphere and calling the plays and enjoying the moment. When it comes to redshirting, yeah, I would do it. That's no problem. It would give me a chance to work on my academics a little more because I am not going there just to play football. I am going there for an education in business, too. I would be open to redshirting. I would like to play if the opportunity came, I would take it, but if I have to redshirt I'll definitely do so."

But go ahead and continue to slander a very good kid.

Braxton has had exactly ONE multi-int game. You give him Krenzel's defense - Holy Buckeye probably isn't necessary, though I would trust him to make that play (See Wisconsin 2011, a much better opponent, Braxton as a Freshman)

Comment 17 Sep 2014

"Executing the gameplan"

Show me the numbers comparing the offensive output of the 4 QBs mentioned, I don't think Krenzel wins that one. He made plays in the clutch against bad teams because the offense he ran, when MoC was out, was not very good (Purdue, Cincy, Illinois to name a few). The Defense and special teams often kept us in games. Look at the numbers, and consider who "executed the gameplan" best.

Comment 17 Sep 2014

People seem to forget that, as memorable as that play was, OSU was in that position due to the offense's ineptitude without MoC. If Smith is the QB in that game, I'd be willing to bet Holy Buckeye isn't necessary to win it.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Didn't the '07 Gators that lost 4 games (including one to Michigan) with a heisman QB and Percy Harvin have the same coaches as it had the following year when it won it all? (rhetorical question - it did). 

Comment 09 Sep 2014

"Tressel's players" went 6-7 with Tressel Disciples.

Meyer proceeded to go 12-0 with said players.

I loved Tress as much as anyone, but to ignore the impact of the culture change and coaching of Meyer is pure idiocy.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Please institute this rule. I would hate to see this respectable board go the way of the scout/bucknuts board. The reaction after 1 loss already suggests it could be headed that way with all of the "FIRE COACH (insert any member of the staff who was part of 25 game regular season win streak)!" threads.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

People thought the sky was falling the year OSU beat Oregon in the Rose Bowl, especially after that Purdue loss (Bollman/Tressel are inept, move Pryor to WR, season is lost, etc.). We'll be fine. Excited to see how this year develops, and to watch the players grow from the loss. Go bucks

Comment 07 Sep 2014

First regular season loss since November 2011. Please calm down everyone. thank you for this thread.

Comment 11 Jun 2014

I don't follow recruits on twitter, and obtain all of the recruiting information I ultimately ingest from this site - but I've not once seen a recruit mention anything to the effect of "I chose (school) due to the amount of love grown ass men were showing me on twitter! shoutout to my followers #(school)nation!"

Fans do have a significant role in recruiting, though. Strong showings at games, frequenting OSU affinity sites like 11w, having a wide geographic footprint,etc can be positive reinforcement for a recruit without fans acting like assholes.

Comment 06 Jun 2014

Krenzel was the perfect QB for that system - did not make mistakes, made plays when it mattered (4th and 14 vs Miami, Holy Buckeye, etc) and was an integral part of an unforgettable team.

With that said, under Krenzel, the offenses were anemic (put down your pitchforks - Krenzel was a great representation of OSU football and embodied everything Tresselball could be when executed correctly). This could be due to conservative play calling, or simply the coaches acknowledging the limits of Krenzel's abilities, or having a defense that alleviated the pressure on the offense to be overly aggressive.

Interestingly, Braxton gets a terribly unfair shake from a sizable portion of the fan base who clamor for a "pass first, run 2nd QB." All the while, he's been the best player on two of the best offenses, statistically speaking, in OSU's history (not to mention the 2 B1G POY awards...). That Braxton has 1 (ONE!) game in his career with multiple INTs (2), and also has a knack for making huge plays makes one wonder the possibilities of putting that 02 defense (or most of the Tressel-era defenses, for that matter) with last year's team (Sigh).

Always nice to see the stampede of message board Mother Teresas riding in on their high horses to pass judgment on a high school kid (Gibson, Crawford, Glover-Williams) that very few (if any)  actually knows personally. But hey, keep propagating that phony Freudian Psychoanalysis, because it's very obvious that anyone with two eyes and half a brain that even the simplest of derelicts can gleam some semblance of truth as to the nature of a kid's character based on a tweet or libelous internet story. Gotta love the internet right?
