Whelp, Joe Burrow vs Ohio State is still on the table. Although I'd much rather see UGA on the other side of the field than LSU. Truth be told, I want Clemson though.
Disappointing that another huge home game is at noon. It really does seem like so many of our road games are at night and the home games are much more likely to be early kicks.
The bye weeks are fine, but having Penn State and Michigan back to back has me a little worried. Sometimes it's hard to get up for 2 games in a row like that.
If that's your best friend, I fear to think of your worst
There were a few times there the LBs (I didn't really notice who each time) kind of let Martinez get the edge on them, where it could have been prevented with a better angle. Not necessarily something I'm worried about but with a win that easy, you gotta nitpick a little. I also want to see how Fields does under more pressure. Haskins looked great early but then against TCU and PSU in the face of pressure, looked way less comfortable. And we probably would have lost that Penn State game if the screen game hadn't bailed us out. So hopefully things just keep rolling even against more pressure and better teams.
Oh yeah, the guy warming the bench now in Miami.
He'll get plenty of opportunities to use his legs without forcing it. And you can still mix it in, or use it in tight games without it being a major presence in the offense and without risking his health against softer teams. Running QBs have a tendency to get injured and we've seen it happen plenty of times here. If it happens this year we're in serious trouble.
Yeah uh - maybe reconsider that read option crap.
And we thought Haskin's health was important last year.
Haven't watched the game yet, but uh....Fields was 3/12 for 33 yards excluding the 98 yard play? Yikes.
I'd like to think they've gained a little perspective by now
I can't say that I've ever really seen it with McCall. Most seem to think he's this game breaking, explosive player that's been held back for 3 years, but if he was ever going to have a breakout season this is the year. RB and H-back have just been too log-jammed but both positions are now wide open depth wise. Start the dude off as a 3rd down pass catching RB and go from there; I haven't seen much on special teams from him.
Yeah - I know it's not the most popular opinion here, but I agree. I wish him the best and hope he explodes and has an insanely productive year, but I haven't seen it from him. He looks pretty average. Frankly, I'm a little worried about our backfield. Dobbins looked dangerous his freshman year and has regressed a bit imo, and I've never really seen it from McCall. Put a revamped OL (probably our thinnest position group, outside of QB) in front of them and there's a little cause for concern I think. I'm sure I'll grab some downvotes but that's what I see right now. I'm really glad KJ is back, I think his experience, leadership, and consistency will be extremely beneficial to the offense.
He's deciding soon, he's not gonna wait anywhere near long enough to see if Fields is eligible or not.
I hope Fields stayed engaged all year at UGA, had solid coaching, and improved his game. If he was mentally checked out, his game could suffer, and I really want to see the guy I keep hearing about.
I did plenty of dumb shit at 19, and into my 20's, but just because I was young doesn't mean it still wasn't dumb shit. Tate behaved immaturely and he ran his mouth in a way that doesn't look good, 19 or not. No need to trash the kid but it still looked poor and it's not unreasonable for someone to be rubbed the wrong way. I still wish him the best and hope he kills it on the field - so long as he stops throwing shade OSU's way.
Why on earth would Hurts see Ohio State as a transfer destination?
They don't even play Clemson in 19, 20, or 21. It'd have to be in a conference title game. You're right though Clemson plays nobody. If they beat Notre Dame early next year their toughest game is uh...Syracuse I think. Red carpet to the playoffs. It's too bad South Carolina is always so bad.
The bigger concern is he throws as much shade as he can think of Ohio State's way in an attempt to get a waiver. Embelish the Zach Smith situation a bit, exaggerate or fabricate some things that Urban said to him, something along those lines. I'm not saying he would do something like that, I don't know the dude, but I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that a kid who badly wants to play and has shown a little immaturity would fling as much poo as possible at the wall and hope something sticks.
You're on drugs, unless he breaks his leg before the draft he's getting drafted 100%
Let's push you into it
One, comments directed at Fields can reasonably be expected to impact Fields more so than other players. Two, not every player has to feel the same way about everything. Three, other players do not have the same MLB potential or interest in baseball as Fields might. Four, you don't need one sole, single reason to transfer. Other players could be significantly bothered by this but not enough to transfer. Fields, with *additional* incentive to transfer, could feel that the equation has been shifted enough to make transfer the better option for him. It's not all or nothing, you can make decisions based on multiple reasons.
Much like the foul tongue of Mordor
Why is everyone so all or nothing in their reasoning here? The kid doesn't have to feel like his life is over and he's in immediate danger to feel uncomfortable enough to justify a transfer. You're suggesting that just because he wasn't willing to quit mid-season and mid-semester that any claim of a transfer isn't valid? Give me a break.
Thinking he's mediocre or whatever is fine, but these hot takes that he somehow owes it to...the team? the fans? the school? the underclassmen? to get the hell out of there and not "waste" a scholarship, or that he's such a waste of space as to be a liability, in their expert opinions which are clearly superior to those of the coaching staff, are just being douchebags.
Didn't you know, cheetoh eating internet warriors can evaluate players better than our coaching staff
