That's true and I agree with your point. Zeke wasn't a feature back his frosh year and no one was calling for him to be. I reserve judgement on all players until I see them play significant playing time in college games. Evident even more after watching the Green vs Zeke recruiting debate. I feel there's only a select few where I 'know' they'll be good based off of a HS highlight reel.
Not true. Elliot played in the 2013 Florida A&M game and put up 160 yds. Most of, if not all, came in the 2nd half...if I'm not mistaken. I was at the game and told my dad that it was going to be a blow out but I wasn't leaving early b/c I wanted to see how good the new freshman were going to be. I still look back at that comment and laugh.
I like the idea of Jason Candle from Toledo. He was the QB and OC under Campbell before being promoted to HC this year. He runs a great offense and has done great things with Woodside this year (~3900 yds 43 TDs). As a Toledo season ticket holder I can say the Rockets offense has been explosive and fun to watch. He's Ohio born, went to Mount Union, and is only 37 yrs old. Instead of taking the Campbell (Iowa St) and Beckman (Illinois) routes of being successful in the MAC for a couple of years before taking a dead end Big 12 or Big 10 HC position. He can take the Herman route and use tOSU OC/QB as a stepping stone to a desirable Power 5 HC job. Possibly even bypassing a Houston like position since he will have already proven his HC abilities at UT.
I thought we weren't allowed to tweet past 11W employees...or is that just recruits...I'm so confused
I for one welcome our new recruiting overlord
Thanks Birm. You have made Toledo proud. Fortunately I will remain to balance her out with shame. We should start a petition to get your name on a Tony Packo's bun on the wall.
Did anyone else notice "Jake Fromm" State Farm next to Tate?
Hoping the new coach brings back the old dominance like we use to have under Cromwell.
I was not optimistic leading up to Wisconsin or Alabama but was overly confident before Oregon...which then ironically caused me to be worried.
I actually said to my Penn St friend as we sat down at our seats at the B1G champ game..."If Cardale keeps it under 2 INT's and doesn't make too many mistakes AND we keep Wisc under 200 yds rushing we should have a chance"
I hate the quick cals before the game. They're stupid and don't get the crowd pumped up. Even if they did the team goes directly to the locker room for 10 minutes which deflates any hype they might have caused.
I wish Cardale would have jumped to the NFL because I fear he's not as good as his 3 game run suggests and his mythical storyline will suffer with average games this year or loosing the QB race.
I like sitting during the games but get up to cheer my ass off when the situation calls for it. I think the guy who stands all game is annoying.
We didn't want him anyways. He's a prima donna as evident by the hair and #1 ranking. Akron can have him. Have fun losing to The Buckeyes Chucky boy.
I was at Disney World for the national championship game. So...
- Wearing my OSU gear the day of the game & having tons of random people yell O-H or GO BUCKS as we walked around Epcot.
- Watching people in bama gear overt their eyes when they saw my OSU shirt & hat. Seriously, this was hysterical.
- Watching the game at the ESPN Club bar at Disneys Boardwalk which was filled with 90% OSU fans who were all awesome.
- Getting congrats from random people the next day at the Magic Kingdom when they saw my hat. As if I personally had something to do with the outcome.
For what it's worth...I'm at the ESPN Club sports bar at the Boardwalk in Disney World and its 90% Buckeyes.
We're taking over everywhere
I have seen less than 5 groups wearing Bama gear in the 5 days I've been here. And none of them will make eye contact with me while wearing my OSU shirts & hat.
Had a nice conversation with a TCU fan who was still pissed they were not picked but finished with saying he was just happy someone kicked Alabama's a$$
I had an uneasy feeling going in against Wisconsin and Bama. I'm having the same calm feeling about this game that you're having and it has me worried.
I'm going to use this as an excuse for why I sat on my ass all day until it was time to go to the bar
Wait, what...How the hell did that happen
That's not what they keep telling everyone
The recruiting boat has already sunk. It's just a matter of how much farther to the ocean floor.
I do and I don't want to see the look on Gardner's face as a crazy eyed naked Bosa barrels down on him.
_ichigan's band & halftime shows are horrible. I witnessed two last year.
The U_ vs Ind game highlight was two stick figures leaning in to kiss. That's it...that's as exciting as it got. That same day, tbdbitl was moon walking across The Shoe Michael Jackson style.
tOSU vs U_ halftime show looked like it was written by the schools PR dept. The band played background noise while the announcer & jumbo tron babbled on about how great the school is (edit: was) while the band spelled out "go blue" in different languages. They didn't even morph into the next phrase. They just ran from spot to spot.
In both cases the _ichigan fans around me were disinterested and actually commenting on how bad it was.
It's fitting since I voted a straight communist ticket on Tuesday. Better red than dead...right comrad. Lol
No, Florida is in the SEC so it's a good loss for Georgia. Same with the loser of the Auburn / Ole Miss game. Georgia will win the SEC and earn a spot in the playoffs. Auburn & Ole Miss will get in because they're awesome and only beat up on themselves. And the 4th playoff spot will be alabama because...it's ALABAMA. There will be 4 SEC teams in the playoffs because 'merica deserves only the best.
