I agree with Ramzy, in part, because TTUN is acting humbled - Don Brown is keeping his mouth shut, for example. They're quietly doing work.  They're going to be a good team.

However, I'm also fully counting on TTUN to go full TTUN by Dec. 12th. Especially if they're undefeated coming into the game... or at least very good... the "Revenge Tour" TTUN team will show up full of hubris and entitlement...TTUN is gonna TTUN - it's just who they are.  Count on it.

Haskins stats are better than Sam Darnold and Daniel Jones this year. To this point in their early careers (through 11 games) - Haskins has played better than Buffalo's Josh Allen. 

He's young & talented but does need to work on his game. We all see that - and we knew he was leaving OSU a year too early (from a development POV, but he needed to go get that money).  

He's got to get out of Washington. I hope that eventually - Terry & DH do as well. Dumpster fire franchise - and I really wanted them to do well this year, I wanted to believe they were changing. 

Comment 07 Oct 2020

I think he'd be a good pickup for the Steelers, Colts, Bears, Lions, Vikings, 49ers, Bucs, Saints, or Patriots.  Those teams all have starting QBs - some on their last leg of their career, others who are gonna be replaced - so they're good spots for Dwayne to go, learn, grow, develop, etc. and start to push to be the #1 in 2021 or 2022.

Honestly, you know who would be a great hire for Texas?

Luke Fickell.  

He’s a straight shooter, old school coach with good recruiting ability.  He’s a players coach. Good blend of Urban and Tress.

Tom Herman is a tool. He’s all about himself great offensive mind.  The Texas stage exposed him though. It’s too big for him and he’s so petty. 

Comment 05 Oct 2020

While I honestly think Urban is done coaching - at least for a few more years a la Mack Brown style - there are some benefits to Texas.

+ The Big 12 is so weak - he could dominate easily, and quickly, just like here in 2011/2012.

+ The talent on the team is pretty good right now - better than what he inherited here in 2011/12. 

+ Recruiting TEXAS is so much easier - so talent rich, great HS football development. He wouldn't necessarily need to go out of state. He could take 20 players from Texas each year (including the top QB in the state) and then sprinkle a few national recruits.  

+ He'd already have Chris Ash & Stan Drayton on staff. I get Ash hasn't done much yet, but Urban is a big believer in his defense and his ability to coach. 

Now, I actually think Texas will keep getting better on D down the stretch. They can score points. Ash will right that ship eventually. Remember 2014 Virginia Tech and even later in the season, the D was scored on quite a bit, OSU - Sparty score was 49-37.

I think Texas will still win the Big 12 (Oklahoma is bad, OkSt I'll believe it when I see it). If Herman has 2 or fewer losses, his job is safe for another year.

Good signs from Haskins today.  Playing against the Ravens, who have a solid defense and a very good offense, here's Haskins' stats:

32/45    314     7.0   0 0     3-40       90.4

No passing TDs, but one rushing TD. 

He played within himself. This should be a confidence building game for him with some winable games coming up. 

Comment 04 Oct 2020

Hired Hafley and replaced him with Red Bull. Stellar work.

Comment 29 Sep 2020

You don’t have to draft a QB in the 2nd round like the Eagles did.  That was dumb. 
 

But take a flyer on a QB in rounds 5-7, or free agency. Most of those late round picks don’t pan out anyway.  Find a QB who you like, you fits your system, who is a winner... and take them.  
Maybe they only make the practice squad.  But maybe you get a Tom Brady.  
 

Comment 29 Sep 2020

Perhaps. But Jordan Love is no Justin Fields.

Its kinda like how the Bengals drafted a QB a year ago and then Burrow this year.

Im of the belief that you should draft a QB every year. Some late rounders develop well. Some first rounders do not. 

Comment 29 Sep 2020

Someone who needs a QB will move up in the draft, most likely.  


You could see a team like Minny figuring out that Cousins isn’t the answer, trading him, and then moving up to get Fields.

I think it would be great if Fields could go to a team where he could follow the Mahomes plan.  Sit for a year behind a good QB and learn the game/adjust to the league.  Then play. 
 

The Saints would be an excellent option.  Tampa Bay would be, too.  Possibly even Green Bay (though he’d probably sit longer there). Maybe the Patriots would be an option as well.

Comment 29 Sep 2020

If you compare Haskins numbers to Allen's numbers over the same amount of games played at the start of their careers... Haskins numbers are better than Allen's (and Washington is a far worse team by comparison/talent/coaching early on).

Comment 29 Sep 2020

Honestly, it makes me wonder if the Bengals blocking scheme or coaching isn't partly to blame. 

I'm not saying that Jordan or Price are living up to their lofty billing coming out of OSU. 

I am saying it seems like something else deeper or systemic is part of the problem.

Comment 27 Sep 2020

He’s staring down the receiver he is throwing to when he makes the mistakes/throw INTs.  He predetermines where he is going with the ball before the snap too much. 


But, he has a terrible O-Line and doesn’t get much time to throw.  The play-calling is better this year than it was last year.  It that offense is BAD/weak on talent overall. 
 

He shows glimpses. I wouldn't call him a bust yet. He may only end up a 2nd strong QB if he doesn’t clean up those mistakes/get some help on offense.

Comment 27 Sep 2020

Great work, Buckeyes. Keep donating. Haskell likely saved a young woman's life OR saved her from a severe beating. Hopefully, it's a wake-up call to her to get out of a terrible relationship with a violent/reactive man.

Comment 26 Sep 2020

While I think the B1G screwed this whole thing up royally and tried to be seen as the serious conference P5 leader, I do think that you’re spot on with this assessment, at least with the ACC & SEC:

I get the impression that the SEC, Big 12 and ACC would probably have played if folks were actively dying in the stands. 

Comment 25 Sep 2020

I like a lot of this list and I also think that some of these players were left out who are second teamers or who will get good PT.  Don’t sleep on:

1) Dallas Gant at MLB 

2) Steele Chambers at RB

3) Matt Jones at G

4) Kam Babb at WR 

5) Cade Stover at TE

Comment 20 Sep 2020

Well said. 
One can be disappointed in how he handled that moment. 
The hate for Tate is very disproportionate to what he actually did.  He didn’t trash the team. He didn’t make the school his enemy. There are former players who’ve done worse things and are still get some grace around these parts.
Not sure why the standard “once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye” doesn’t apply here. 

Comment 19 Sep 2020

He seems to have really enjoyed the finer things Miami life has offered. So, if he gets an education and got to spend 2-3 years in Miami... not too shabby at all.

Comment 19 Sep 2020

Didn't DV you but I disagree. It's what Urban loved about him. And that's what he ran in the Tate Martell package.  

He probably needs to go to a Mountain West team like Nevada. Maybe Air Force. If he stays at D-1A level he needs to be in a mid-tier league like the MW.

Comment 19 Sep 2020

Put him in an offense that runs QB a lot or any kind of option football, and he’d do well.  I can see why Urban picked him.
