Shitty work, but someone has to do it. Thanks.
Man, Penn St. has probably the best wide receiver and one of the best linebackers in the BIG10. Doesn't sound like we have a chase...er chance.
"This is going t be the stiffest test OSU has faced all year." Where have I heard that before?
I hope they get there early.
Again Day said they scored on a play that they had put in "this week." Think they might have something special for ttun?
Thanks for the info. I'm especially looking forward to tuning in a week from this Sat. and Sun. That will double my pleasure of the Buckeye beatdown!
It's gonna be 3, mark my words. The public perception if we get 2 is due to the weak upcoming schedule. The NCAA is only concerned about the optics. Sad but true.
I really appreciate your refreshingly honest opinions/answers. Especially today...Thank you.
Maybe because the NCAA needs to be exposed even further?
I too am trying to be optimistic about his return. It sounds like there's an excellent chance for his eligibility without any further bombshells. One thought I have that I haven't seen addressed however is, will he elect to? I hate having that negative thought, but our recent experiences and the whole landscape of CF makes me apprehensive. I'll feel much better when he announces his return and that he is ready to come back and dominate again.
Thanks for the feedback, Stx, but 30s/40s often feel like a heatwave in Ohio. It stays cold day, after day, after day. It has to be an adjustment. I'm not trying to be a smart*** in the least. I think he'll handle it well. I was just wondering if Day was attempting to mentally prepare him for that. Not disagreeing with you in any way, GO BUCKS!
Cooper's comments continue to be very interesting concerning the dynamics of the locker room this year versus the last couple. Bet he could write a book. I would buy it.
To piggyback on my comment, is it possible Day is trying to prepare him for the tough two ending season games, but especially for the possible brutal weather ahead? Being from the South, Field's has never experienced that. Am I overthinking things?
I'm curious why Day the last 2/3 weeks seems to keep emphasizing Field's toughness. Probably means nothing and I'm just having flashbacks to Urban's Psyche background. LOL
I think Day is kinda "growing" into his position. :) Extremely, extremely impressive! No learning curve here, folks. Already handles his pressers and the obvious product on the field like a seasoned vet. We are very fortunate.
When asked if D improved due to simplification by the coaching staff "I think there's a lot that goes into that." He again mentions growth, among other things. I still maintain he was deflecting praise from the present staff to avoid comparing to past issues. Agree to disagree.
I have two takes on Day's comments: (1) I think he's going total PC on attributing the improvement in the D mainly to a years growth in the players. I have a hunch the players would attribute it more to coaching. Kudos to Day. (2) I love the fact that he is not overly concerned with individual stats throughout the game. I always thought that was a major flaw with Urban. Getting certain players "touches." It should be about the team, not stroking egos.
I can't find any significant weaknesses/issues with this team. Extremely impressive. One thing I'm surprised with, however, is where is Teradja Mitchell? I thought he was supposed to make an impact this year. This defense seems to really fit his skill set. Is he still not 100% healthy or do we need to wait for next year to see him really ball out? Thanks in advance.
When I need a calculator the line is too rich for me.
Very good read. Thanks for your expansive answers. Details and opinions instead of short, "cookie cutter" responses. GO BUCKS!
Thanks Zack. Don't concern yourself with negative feedback from posters. Personally, I prefer to read someone giving their honest opinion versus someone just spewing bs because they think that's what I want to hear. (I'll let you know when I disagree with you.) LOL. Keep up the great work!
Focus No.1. No.2 would be Focus. For No. 3 I'll go with Focus. I have not seen a Buckeye team this dialed in since the 3 game stretch to win the NC game in 2014. I cannot be more impressed with this staff and how the players have responded. Go Bucks!
Olave has "possessed" several of his catches in the endzone. He can get deep.
It happens. I've "jumped the gun" in the past as well.
