I wonder about Zac Smith as a coach... we cruit 4 and 5 star receivers every year and i know he is a great recruiter but this is the second year in a row (maybe more) where the coaches are questioning WHO is going to step up in zone 6. Maybe it was the o line not giving JT enough time, maybe it was JT with not great accuracy but I know UFM has stated it before that he will be looking to see who will step up as X and Y and I have heard this in the past. I wonder if he is able to coach up the talent.
I'm going, bought president cup tickets that I plan to go on Thursday and Friday and possibly Sunday and head to see the Buckeyes on Saturday. Should be a pretty cool weekend.
Anybody have any ideas if there is good tailgating pre/post game there?
So as someone who has to travel in to Columbus (2 hours) I prefer the 3:30 games. Allows to travel in without getting up at the crack of dawn, tailgate, watch the skull session, go to the game and head back home and get home at a reasonable hour. I realize many are Columbus based but not everyone. 3;30 is ok in my book for many reasons and exactly why the hell do you want to do anything else on any given Saturday but revel in a Buckeye victory anyway?
When the other teams REACH for Qb's especially Chicago there is so many great value picks coming up this makes so much sense including picks # 2, # 9, #11, #15, # 16, # 18, # 19 and # 21 according to Mayock. We are at pick # 16 and with 9 more to go, the Browns can get a ton of value. This is a no brainer and this draft is DEEP.
Keep in mind now that the Browns have two #1's next year they can offer one for Garropollo or McCarron still this year. Not only that, next years QB's in the draft will all be better than this years. So draft a ton of talent at great value this year, have a zillion picks next year AND get a better pro QB prospect in either a trade or next years draft.... Makes 100% sense to me. Love it!
105.7 sounds like a bunch of whiney asses, Zeke is 21. Yes he can still get more "grown-up", but come on. I am fond of Spiels and I take his approach is to send a wake up call to Zeke so I respect that.. How about picking up the phone and share his interest in showing Zeke the best approach?
Internet fights are hilarious. Radio stations calling each other out is childish. too many people with too many opinions makes for great drama. Thanks for the amateur show!
Personally I felt JT wasn't confident with his recievers last year.and it put him out of sorts. The O line struggled to some degree that also put him in check down or run for yards situations. JT has the skills as proven in 2014. Technically skills don't just disappear and so I believe the new coaching and the changes to coaching had an influence on him as well and ultimately their choices made him less confident. Get him some help and he will take this team to the promise land.
If the suggestion is Meyer would never take JT out, if I am Meyer I am not taking him out either. Given the passing game woes last year for reasons mentioned above the Buckeyes still went 11-1 and much of that had to do with the defense and primarily JT not taking negative plays. Give me a smart leader like that all day every day.
Who knows id Wilson and Day are the answer but for sure the Buckeyes offense regressed since Tom Herman left. While the quarterback who was in Herman's system and set records is still here.
I agree with original post. Bilas is a little too fond of himself. He knows his stuff but he is a complete ass hat.
