John Dorsey is keeping a list? If he is, its what to pack when he follows Freddie out the door. Dorsey is the one who put this shitbag team together.
Too bad only 74 players can travel. Great chance for youngsters to get heavy playing time.
I imagine the starters will play the first half. I expect OSU will throw a lot of 1st half passes so JF can get his work in. Then pound the ball in the 2nd half to run the clock and get home as quickly as possible. Also, if JF ever runs the ball, he should be immediately pulled from the game :)
And please, no injuries........
Yeah, the robust T with Dawand playing the Pete Johnson role! LMAO!
I also wanted to add my thanks for this weekly series. Well done. And don't be afraid to ask more questions!!!!!
I would guess RB and QB and we're done. Maybe a surprise 3rd but thats it.
If Hilliard and Saunders come back, those ships have to be saved. Also, with McCullough graduating, wasn't his younger brother promised his scholarship? Perhaps JCooper also takes a redshirt so he can come back healthy. I believe he has played 4 games.
It seems likely that OSU will look closely at the portal or grad transfers to shore a position as well.
Again, there will need to be early entries and portal moves to accommodate the commitments OSU already has. The 6th year guys and others will require further attrition.
Jaelen Gill as a DNP yesterday is not good. A borderline 5-star in 2018. If he doesn't play at Rutgers, that will confirm he is portal bound.
Also, Tyreke Johnson got some snaps yesterday. I made a point to watch him and frankly, he doesn't look good. A 2018 5-star. I've noticed Johnson when I attend home games. Seems to do a great job running his mouth and not much else. Almost got into a fight leaving the field during the FLA Atlantic game. Unfortunately, probably another portal guy. Since he's from FLA, maybe he can transfer to FAU......
BuckeyeFanInBoulder nails it. Why does Georgia get a pass for losing to SCar? 4th? Seriously?
1-5: LSU OSU Clem Oregon Bama
6-10: Georgia Florida Okie Minny PSU
11-16: Aub Utah Baylor Wisc Mich ND
17-19: Cincy Navy Memphis
20-25: who cares?
The writer has obviously never been to Annapolis. Great city.
2 minute minor. Take a seat.
Didn't Urban make an issue of getting players some help so family could see them play? This issue seems familiar.
OSU recruits Baton Rouge?
Perhaps an asterisk by Seibert's name in the list? I thought he stated that he would gray shirt.
With Hilliard applying for a 6th year and Saunders perhaps doing the same, won't the staff have to back off on adding other commits? I still expect that the staff will add a grad transfer of need after the season. Position would depend on early entries and portal entries.
Thanks for the Munford update. I've suspected he's not completely healthy. I believe he will recuperate and build himself back up in the off season and be back at LT in 2020. No early entry.
Probably only half that many 5th-years in 2020.
Kanell has always been a clown. Who was the network executive who thought this guy had the talent to do this? Ridiculous.
Still not buying Wade turning pro. I believe he needs to be a true #1 CB for one season and not a nickel or bullet kind of guy playing all over the field. I don't see him in any 1st round mock drafts (i've reviewed approx. 6-7 different sites). I did see him listed as a 2nd rounder on one site and not listed at all in any of the others.
I also don't believe Munford will go either. He needs to prove he's completely healthy first of all. Also, watching him in the Wisconsin replay, he had some difficulties in that game. Not graded a champion in that one although he has been in other games.
Maybe the Iowa St. coach being named in every article as a possibility for FSU and USC would lead Williams to decide that whether its this year or next, the head coach recruiting him won't be around much longer.
Weren't we told the APB position is dead?
Does he not throw the ball? Couldn't he be the 2nd QB for 2020?
And Hartline was all over this kid well before he shot up the 247 rankings. He must know about real talent......
Conversely, the blowouts have also identified non-freshman players who can't play. If you haven't gotten snaps in the first 8 games, that;s probably a message for the future. I would expect to see those players in the portal after the season.
Harbaugh....Hudson....Luke's comments (very unLuke like).
I don't expect much movement in Power 5 this year. I think a number of coaches will get one more year. That would make 2020 a real interesting year.
I will be surprised, however, if MSU doesn't make a change. The program has stalled and the haven't recruited well last 2-3 years. And of the really good guys they have gotten, a number of them are already gone.
My ONLY concerns on defense are:
1) Stop the quick slant! I don't understand why CB's don't overplay the WR a bit to the WR's inside. Easier to react/defend an inside fake going out than an outside fake going in. Sort of how a basketball defender would play it. Take away an option right at the start.
2) Stop the fake give/QB bootleg. OSU will see this often from Clifford and Patterson.
Ruckert had a really nice block on the Dobbins 13-yard run sealing off the DE.
I believe they lifted his redshirt due to the injuries of Munford and Alabi first and then his apparent ahead of schedule progress.
I'm seeing many comments that Munford leaves after this year but I just don't see it at this point. He's been injured since last Spring and has missed quite a bit of playing time. If an NFL team is going to invest a high round pick, they will need to be certain he is healthy.
1972 or 1974 Michigan. I would like to have witnessed the incredible intensity the Woody/Bo rivalry must have produced. That was really the only game either team was pushed during the season.
