He was underthrown two other times on deep balls also. Made a hell of a play on the third deep ball though that one wasn’t really fields fault as he had to avoid pressure before being able to throw it. Olave is really beating people and it’s obvious you can’t single cover him or he’s going to beat you.

Comment 23 Nov 2019

I only had a serious issue with that fourth down call. Take the points with haubeil. He’s proven to be a pretty good kicker. Give the guy a chance and go up two tds. Just didn’t get that play call at all.

Comment 20 Nov 2019

Again, I don’t understand why you keep bringing up cj and woods? I agree they aren’t as good as the two we have now. That’s obvious But that’s not the question. We aren’t choosing between the two we have now vs. last year. It’s who is the second most valuable player on this years team. We have two more than capable point guards at a position you really only need one. It’s a good luxury to have two but pgs don’t usually get in foul trouble or wear out like other positions. In contrast, we only have one proven option at pf where I’d say it’s just as if not even more important to have depth because those guys tire more easily and foul out. So again, I just don’t get how you can make the case that a position without proven depth is better to lose a guy than a position where we have some. Not like young isn’t producing some good stats either. Already has two double-doubles which is something neither walker or carton has done once.

Comment 19 Nov 2019

So you are saying you’d rather have no proven options at PF rather than just having one proven pg option. I’m going to have to heavily disagree with that. It’s great having two pgs of course but that is also the position of usually the teams most fit player who can play the most minutes. He can play the majority of the game, something most bigs can’t do effectively. Also, I’d argue Washington being a proven guard at this point. He’s a combo guard who played point for the majority of his high school career and shown he can take up the ball this year. Plus Kyle young is our backup center. You really want a raw Diallo playing a decent amount of minutes? I just don’t understand how you think losing young when we have no other proven option is equal to losing a player at a position we already have some depth in. And we for sure lose that cincy game without young. He kept us within single digits by himself in the first half.

Comment 19 Nov 2019

Those aren’t the options on this years team?!? So I don’t get your point. We already have two guys at point that have shown to be really capable in carton and Walker. I’d be much more fine with losing one of them and sliding Washington to play backup minutes than I would losing young and not really having any great proven option. I love liddell but he hasn’t shown enough to be a high end starter and so I still would rather have young than walker or carton. We need all the size we can get on this team and young plays backup center too which is our weakest position. So I’d strongly disagree with your take here.

Comment 15 Nov 2019

Ballard and Collins are two different types of receivers too so not really like they chose between the two. It was more of a choice between him and Harrison as the big bodied receiver for this class. 

Comment 15 Nov 2019

We looked really good so not surprising. Probably have the two best wins in cincy and Villanova. That’s not even counting beating Louisville at their place which I know was a scrimmage. But shows we can beat the title contending teams and are up there.

Side note: really hope we can get Gaffney some more minutes. I think he has by far the most potential we have seen in a buckeye uniform for quite some bit. Should try and play him a lot and let him learn when Wesson is out right now. He’s a game changer with his size and wing span. Looks like the perfect stretch four who can be a defensive menace shot blocking. He really stacks up well with the elite athletes the duke and Kentucky’s have.

Comment 12 Nov 2019

They have absolutely no shooting. Reminds me of the Kentucky team we beat a couple of years ago. Just got to take away driving lanes and then I think we have a pretty good shot of winning the game in Vegas.

Comment 12 Nov 2019

Ehh I’m not a huge Muschamp guy but South Carolina will be a lot better next year. They have had a lot of injuries and are playing a lot of true freshman like their Qb right now. He’s also recruiting really well for them and the sec east is mediocre other than Georgia and Florida being mehh. I’m not sure South Carolina can do much better than what muschamp is doing right now. They aren’t even the best team in their own state and he’s still handling his own on the recruiting trail.

Comment 08 Nov 2019

He’s a lockdown defender. A crucial piece to our team. Know he didn’t have a great offensive night but he was shutting down Cumberland damn well. Cumberland only started getting it going a bit when he went out at the end.

Comment 23 Oct 2019

Well first off he clearly had inside info being able to go to a practice. Second, he was a former walk on here and so he knows more about basketball and how good the culture is than you or I. So I’d say that’s why you should if you care about Ohio state basketball.

Comment 23 Oct 2019

Burrow was a fringe 3/4* recruit himself. So can’t discount them for that reason. Plus LSU always has a top 5 receiving core in the country and are bringing a receiving class that is a close second to ours. Joe Brady came from the saints and really allowed their abilities to flourish. Burrow is a part of that but I’m guessing it’s safe to say with Brady and those receivers that they will still be pretty good.

Comment 19 Oct 2019

Has the same problem as Meyer did with staff loyalty though. Offensive coordinator gets a lot of heat from northwestern fans and rightfully so. Needs to fire the guy and update his offense to an above average one. Be a real good team if they could as they always have a pretty stout defense.

Comment 19 Oct 2019

Dobbins was awesome so don’t get me wrong here but surprised how little Teague played in the first half. Did he even get a carry until the second half? Not complaining just found that odd they wouldn’t give him some touches with how monstrous he has been this year. 

Comment 17 Oct 2019

If he’s going to miss double digit games this year then I wouldn’t be opposed to just redshirting him. Let him develop his shot and his game. Should have redshirted his first year here but we had zero depth. Feel much better about our depth and he’s missed all of pre season so it would take him a while to get back into playing shape when he comes back.

Comment 16 Oct 2019

No doubt you take him. Especially if wade is leaving like he is thought to be. Hafley can coach the hell out of any db so I have confidence in that position even with losing 2 1st rounders and a 2nd rounder in fuller for next year. But you can’t coach players into getting the type of athleticism that Holmes has. He could easily turn into an elite shut down corner with Hafleys coaching like he did for Okudah. Absolutely take him. 

Not like he has had any off the field issues anyway either.

Comment 24 Sep 2019

I mean I’d much rather he be subdued like this rather than causing a scene like Jameis Winston did with crab legs and paint ball fights on the quad. He’s not doing anything wrong so I just say let him handle his business. Be hard to get anything done and go to classes when you go out and get asked for pics and autographs all the time. 

Comment 24 Sep 2019

Have to be Bama. Even the sec narrative couldn’t justify a one loss non sec champion over a power 5 undefeated champion. 1% chance Bama sneaks in over Oklahoma but definitely not OSU. Just win and you are in.
