Yes, a teams schedule DOES mean that they EARN it more than another team but you are correct in that an easy schedule of cupcakes doesn't mean that one team is inferior to another. What it does mean is that you don't know how players/coaches will react if the cupcake bites back. Practices are hardly game quality today, little if any hitting for example.
Heh, heh, heh, he said "woody"
With Clemson's entire team going in the first round, coupled with the three buckeye corners I'm not sure Burrow is going to be a first round pick.
Motivation, we don't need no stinking motivation.
I believe he was quoted as saying that after the season he would talk it over with the coaching staff, his family and make a decision in terms of what's best. I don't know if he's graduated yet or could as then he would be able to move to a program where he would be the stud and be able to put up big numbers rather than FIGHT for a slot next season.
Meyers and Davis are not leaving.
One CB went in the first round last year, three total the year before. As good as WE believe our CB's to be, all three in the first round over all other CB's in college football is not going to happen. Buckeye CB's are currently rated 1st ,7th and 15th at their positions as of 12-2-2019 in the 2020 NFL draft.
Bet your house that three buck corners do not get picked in the first round, come on now and let's be realistic.
We lose depth for sure but I actually think the two BEST WR's are still going to be with us. Hill is the only one that might be difficult to replace in terms of starting snaps. Now will they be as effective if they are taking 90% of the snaps instead of 50%? that's the real question in my mind. Can the frosh or the other returning WR's develop enough to allow Olave and Wilson to rest up enough to play their best...……………..
I don't see OU beating any of the higher seeded opponents, just not impressed.
It would have been nice if they had anticipated Wisconsin's adjustments from the regular season game before they got dominated the first half but yeah, this staff and players certainly are great at adjusting during the game. Fields has been off just a little the first half of the last few games but then settles in and plays great after he breaks a sweat and get's loose.
Hilliard didn't seem to be a 100% set on returning to OSU in his early interviews
Run the numbers on the bucks, WILL Lose two O-Linemen, might lose four. Will lose three starting WR's as well as top RB. I think only two linemen and the "backup" WR"s are just as good as the starters, perhaps better. Backup RB is good but a step below the starter.
On defense lose three of four D-Lineman and one LB as well as at least three, perhaps four corners/safeties. Losing three interior D-Linemen, all fifth year seniors and the best DE in college as well as a terrific defensive backfield. Can fill in the D-line minus DE star and have tons of talent at LB but defensive backfield is going to take two steps backwards.
Offense is going to need to outscore teams much of the year.
Absolutely, as a competitor you play until the last second ticks off the clock, never surrender.
Only gave up 20 or so points until about five minutes left in the half and then PSU hit some threes, FT's and closed out the half with 15 points or so.
Perhaps they thought that you were making fun of blind people?
They'd better have less wealth, the Boomers have worked for thirty or forty years and have an the chance to save, get promoted and have much less of a tendency to "want now" than the young'uns. If you lose the old, old middle class man from UD basketball for example they would have an empty arena, BOOMERS RULE, BOOMERS RULE.
Problem is that at some point that price point gets to where the old middle class man takes it personally and if he's not comfortable, warm and drunk he starts to think about how he's getting ripped off, that the value of the product doesn't match the cost.
Love the Bucks but my principles won't allow me to pay $120 a year for pay for view to watch the game. I'm still mad that cable TV put the commercials back in the programs. For those too young to remember that was the original draw of Cable, no commercials
They do but don't they revert to the same color if you make a post in the thread? So if you post half way up a thread, everything below it then is the same color and you have to look at the time stamp to figure out if you've read it. At least that's how it works on my computer
I didn't realize that pItts were so inbred when it comes to joints.
"Someone without Fields’ toughness might be more inclined to rest when dealing with an injury like he is, but Fields – who consistently draws praise from Day for his toughness and competitiveness – said he would have to have a major injury to sit on the sidelines."
Not to dispute his toughness, he's clearly someone that want's to play but I don't imagine 5% of college players would sit out this game, most would even underplay their pain so as to convince the medical staff that they were good to go. The only way I wouldn't play was if I was convinced that I would hurt the team by playing at 75%, that's what 21 year old athletes do.
IS there something wrong with being a "lady", is that word not meant as a compliment? I know we live in a society that searches the heavens to find some way to be offended but is this an offense. It is nice to see a report on their progress, so much talent to develop over the season, great to see.
Dalton, depending upon the keys you use, is rated in the 25-30 range of QB's this season. Certainly not horrible but yeah, he's a game manager and is not going to get you wins by himself.
Is that wrong, wanting to make money off your business?
At the time, Arnette didn’t realize he had broken his wrist. He didn’t know that until after the third game of the season, when he decided to undergo an X-ray due to lingering pain
Kind of wonder about the medical staff on this one, surprised he didn't get an Xray from day one. Jammed my wrist and it hurts like a beotch, go get it checked out.
Keeping Atkins and Dunlap and signing them to long term, high value contracts shows how Mr. Brown loves to keep and honor his players for their dedication but it was a stupid move for a rebuilding squad. Those two contracts will hurt their ability to work the salary cap for the next couple years. Signing the RT to a three year deal was a panic move, he's one of the worst in the NFL.
