What about Martinez at RB? Understand he was very good at this position. Don’t think we are short of people at safety with the 1 safety D we have been using.
Thanks - doesn’t sound like there will be any space for anyone on transfer portal. Just in case.
Does anyone know where we stand on scholarship positions? I know we have one more to sign, but are there any others available? Tks
Well an appropriate ending to this last week plus. We are a lucky and spoiled fan base, but it seems like the fates evened things out a bit this week. We will survive and come back. But I need some time off from football (and basketball). These kids will be fine.
This team was totally lost tonight, sleepwalking thru the game. Coach needed to get some energy in the game the last 10 minutes. Players didn’t play and coach H didn’t coach. They better get it together quick or this will be another disappointing season.
With all the BS, we should have still won. That last play - interception - was something we avoided all season. Mental mistake. I can’t even read this site today. It hurts.
We had so many chances to win but keep giving Clemson 2nd and third chances. They are too good for that esp when they get all the breaks. We played our worst game and were in the game to the end. Another year where we play great but come up 1 game short. Why do I follow OSU football?
So so disappointed. The targeting call changed the entire game. The overturned fumble hurt. But the Bucks had issues all night. FGs instead of TDS , no long balls all night ( where were our long routes?), a few dropped passes, O line didn’t dominate, injury to JK, no adjustments for C QB runs , poor open field tackling, and some questionable play call (including few quick hits over middle to slow rush). We played our worse game of the year and were in until the end. But another year of missing the championship. Why do we have one of the best programs With great records but feel like we under achieve for our talent - now in 4 of the last 6 seasons. I will always love the bucks but it hurts.
I saw the hands to the face a couple times not called. He was mugged and no call.
I have no issue with him leaving Ohio. I did for my career. But it seems to me he played up the tough decision when he never wanted to go to OSU. Wasted time and kept people believing he was going to pick the Bucks. That is my issue. For me, you can take the boy out of Ohio, but never Ohio out of the boy!
Bama had a bunch of injuries in their back 7 for that championship game and started a freshmen at DB who got beat often.
I’ve seen reviews that said most of Es break aways this year were after Clemson had the game won. Don’t know if that is true, but I certainly wouldn’t say that about JK since he was normally out in the second half - except against top 10 teams (Ttun was 10 when we played). I just can’t believe Clemsons running game can match Wisconsin.
Trevor threw down the challenge- they have the best O line in the country. Let’s see what our D line thinks. Let’s see what our O line thinks. C’mon boys, you have been challenged.
2015 and 17&18 will go down as lost opportunities. Each of those years we should have been in the NC. 13-1 each year with a big bowl win, but out of the Natty. As great as those teams were, we will always feel we left money on the table. Thanks for the write up. Go Bucks, beat Clemson.
Vilma is just an example of how lazy most sports experts are about doing their job. He spent no time watching OSU film and doesn’t even know their players or positions. He doesn’t remember that Alabama had a number of injuries on that D including a freshmen DB starting who was just overwhelmed and a key LB out. I recall there were other injuries in the back 7. Like the vast majority of sports talking heads, just go with what others say, don’t do any research and let your personal biases control your views. I’ve learned to ignore what all but a few say.
I saw that Etienne got a lot of yards in garbage time or after the game was won. JK was usually out by then. I’m hoping that he has a monster game and the RB comparison resembles the first Whisky game.
FAU had 11 wins and we beat 4 teams with 10 - including one twice.
I believe we beat 4 teams with 10 wins, 2 teams with 9 wins and a team that won their conference championship. Clemson beat no teams with 10 wins- I think only one with 9. Why is this never mentioned. I think the Bucks are ready to play a great team - at least a lot more then Clemson is. Talk about disrespect. Go Bucks!
Guys, this is below us. Who cares what some Utah fan does on his happiest recruiting day in his life. We lost a good recruit, but no long term effect on the Buckeye machine. Let’s focus on beating Clemson. Go bucks!
I think a lot of times, kids who are having second thoughts find an “opportunity” to decommit when a coach leaves. This just tells me he wasn’t all in and it’s probably better for both that he left. Day’s team will either find someone good or kill it in 2021. Life goes on for the buckeye machine and we will be fine. Good luck kid.
Please don’t fuel the stupid stories on mgoblog. We know you’re kidding, but I can’t stand those babies making nothing but excuses for their crappy football team, esp that we pay the kids to come here and they do everything by the book. So sick of their BS. Sorry- Ranting over.
Only a fool would underestimate ones opponent- especially one that is 13-0. Clemson will be ready just as OSU will be. Whoever prepares better will win and the margin of difference will be small. This should be a great game and there is no question that OSU can win. The key for us is not letting them get a 10 or 14 point lead early in the first half. Go Bucks!
21 signed. Great start to the day!
I think there was a lot of extra activities in the 50 days before the 2006 Natty. That included a Heisman QB who wasn’t focused on the game. Lots of stories, but few confirmed facts. Either way, that team was way better then how they played all season.
After the Coop years, I’m always nervous before the Bucks play a big game. Always before the Game and I was concerned about beating Whisky for a second time. This later concern came true. But for some reason, I have a controlled confidence against Dabo’s boys. I just have this feeling that we are going see a really strong performance by the good guys against a team that hasn’t been tested all year. If we can punch them in the mouth early, not clear they will be able to come back. Let’s send some confidence vibes to the team and get our revenge. Go Bucks!
