I might be wrong but SEC teams tend to stop using that 3rd back during their tougher games unless there is an injury issue. They times they do insert that 3rd back is when they play those crappy OOC teams they like to play.
Now bama isnt like others, they legitimately have 3 starting caliber RBs and use them because there truly is no difference.
I'm good with rotating our 4-6 stud WR right now and getting Wilson, Gill and others involved in passes. OSU tends to do that more than most and it seems to be effective when the talent is there.
I just like that everyone wants to get into timing and reasons why when my view point is that it seems odd that Michigan players are saying UM has done things to block them from eligibility but other schools haven't received the same criticism. Call it what you will but multiple complaints tend to mean something.
Where did he line up the rest of the game? Was he the starting QB at that time? Did he throw a football that whole season?
Love seeing the play, but my point is correct.
I'm good with him picking them to best OSU. You are right, what is he supposed to say. Even saying they are going to be in the playoff makes sense.
But undefeated and national champs. Come on! That is really shooting for the moon.
Would I like having a highly touted stud RB? Yes.
Am I perfectly content with 4 of the top 13 WR (incluilding the best in the nation) after a season of setting all the passing records in team history in an ever changing landscaping to passing offenses? Yep!
I'd prefer to have the best passing game than best running game. Let's try being really good at throwing the ball for a while.
He was playing WR in that game. All clips above are when he was a QB.
Who cares. It's been two years and didnt really care then.
Actually Hill asked Day if Fields was actually coming to OSU and when confirmed he chose to stay. It was more about who would be the QB here because at that time Martell was very likely gone. Hill didnt want to catch passes from Chug or a walk on. I dont think Day confirmed Fields would start before Fields was even on the team, although a blind bat would have guessed that one.
I think you are underestimating what fields has learned at Georgia. Not like they were running a zone read offense there with Jake Fromm. He was studying in a pro style type of offense with Kirby Smart who came from Bamas pro style.
Also, Day and Urban had the same coach speak about Haskins last year and we all saw how that ended up.
I thought what was going to win the big ten west.
I didnt know Dean Blandino was on Saved By The Bell!
He wasn't the first and most likely wont be the last. As many have said, if losing every year for 7 years isnt enough motivation that this is what gets them riled up, then there is a systemic problem with their focus.
Well the difference between fans on this site vs those up north is that our team does win more often than not.
If you feel there is too much positive commenting and slanted talk on here, why even visit and provide pessimistic comments. Just dont comment. I'm confident we have enough hard truth on here with many posters who also like to make positive comments. I dont think there is a need for pure pessimism.
I have no problem with the ugly truth, you just seem to have a lot to say about "the truth" yet I see little evidence of your love for the program. No excitement towards the good topics or positive stories. Just negative comment after negative comment about the problems in the program or its fanbase.
Me personally, voted the most annoying fanbase on an online poll doesn't resonate with me. That has no bearing on me and my fandom. I haven't said anything on here that has been rose colored in anyway. I just prefer not to harp on the BS..all the time.
We have plenty of evidence of what OSU did to help transfers from the players and coaches saying...OSU helped in every situation. There has also been plenty of evidence that Harbaugh, maybe not Michigan as a whole, has been divisive and unwilling to help players who dont help him with his agenda.
I dont know the whole story, that is true but the I do find it funny that Harbaugh seems to have issues backing and helping kids if they dont meet his needs.
Reading your posts, you definitely have a negative attitude about OSU and what the program does. You say we alot but you dont seem to enjoy anything about the team.
Trying to help the kid lie, how about letting the kid move on and helping him without being a jackass about it. It doesn't have to be a lie as much as just move on and stop road blocking kids.
And every kid that has transferred from OSU in the past two years outside of Baldwin has been approved for immediate eligibility with help from OSU. William's, Burrow, Tate, etc. Baldwin had help from OSU but NCAA changed its rules. Wasn't OSU doing what Harbaugh and UM did, not help!
Patrick Mahomes sat one year behind Alex Smith, who KC traded to Washington and now Smith will be replaced by another stud QB who really should sit a year and hopeful gets some help for him. Mclaurin also didnt play so Haskins didnt have his safety blanket.
So we find out that OSU has the most annoying fanbase by whom? Michigan fans or SEC fans. Color me surprised I didnt get to vote in this poll
This is the most bleeping ignorant comment on this site. Please share with us this "1,000 balls he's dropped" you have seen? Others have shown that your math on "one big one" is also inaccurate.
BTW, some had a less than ludicrous take about Parris Cambell years back. He only broke records last year, was drafted in the second round and might be a starter as a rookie for the Colts. So...you know, players do tend to get better.
I do agree that it should be "gaining" the stripe and not losing the black one, but I dont think starting with no stripe is correct either. The uniform calls for a stripe on the helmet. Not having it would be an incomplete uniform. The equivalent to military stripes would be the buckeye leaf's.
But your point of adding instead of losing is spot on. I prefer they said he gained his red stripe.
IDK, taking down the never defeated 4 time defending champs is pretty impressive. Elite has been the only team to win this tournament, now there will be a new champ. Hopefully it is CC.
Controversy follows him everywhere he goes...
So very sad. My condolences to him and his family. I hope justice is served.
Talking heads refuse to acknowledge that Gainesville is a party college town that has always had trouble for players to get into. Some of the best pot is grown in that area (or was back then) and the police often looked the other way when it came to star players. FSU was a mess while the holier than thou Bowden coached there. Urban was lax on his star players but the SEC powers are all like that, LSU and Bama as well.
Harbaugh is just another talking head.
