Where you at, Dre'Mont Jones?
Great info here. Was wondering how Schiano would scheme PSU given the bad M2M matchups presented by Gesicki and Barkley.
Buckeyes are -9.5 vs. PSU. Agreed on the rest of your points.
Do not kick off to Saquon Barkley. Also, regarding special teams, Penn State's kicker is only 6/13 on field goals (Nuernberger is 7/9), so I'd expect a lot of of going for it on fourth downs from both offenses.
As others have mentioned, it will be key for the OSU defense to avoid pass interference and defensive holding. Like others have mentioned, No. 8 needs to drastically improve, or step aside. Put Erick Smith at safety and Fuller at nickel, or give Okudah a chance. Also, Barkley is PSU's top receiver with 29 catches for 395 yards and two TDs. OSU needs to avoid matching a linebacker man-to-man with him.
I think my favorite part of this is they aren't releasing details about it. Meyer is doing good for the sake of doing good and not to boost public perception.
The Taylor option, in my mind, would have the added value of moving Price next to Prince instead of placing someone with little game experience in that spot.
Schiano is better than Tennessee deserves.
I'd be really surprised if Herman bailed on Houston after one season, especially for a South Carolina program that could be viewed as a lateral move.
Fascinating comparison. I wonder if Urban is aware of the philosophic similarities.
I can't wait to watch the playside DBs crash on the pitch, only to watch Braxton flip it to a wide-open Mike Thomas for 6.
An interesting side note: An SEC team has never won in Ohio Stadium.
Your site, your rulez. Thanks for the Skull Sessions and updates; you guys do a great job.
It shouldn't be plural. You wouldn't write "Seniors jersey numbers."
*Freshman jersey numbers
Nice job, Kyle. I'm curious how Harbaugh's offensive schemes compare to Wisconsin's.
Galloway is a class act. Check out all the "thank you" replies in his Twitter timeline (@Joey_Galloway). Looks like he took the time to respond to everyone congratulating him on the new gig.
As you mentioned, Grant was nails in the middle when the Buckeyes needed him most: against No. 1 Alabama. That's what I will remember.
Ed Cunningham is routinely ignorant and unobjective. His color for the 2003 Ohio State-N.C. State game is one of the worst examples of cheering against a team from the booth I have ever heard (along with Fouts, as others have mentioned).
ESPN still trots him out when they need the anti-Ohio State voice on their terrible college football studio shows.
Mike Thomas. He's a complete receiver. Tough, strong, fast, great hands, great footwork, good route runner.
This makes me want to be alone for awhile.
