Yeah, that’s some big time psychological resilience. A mistake like that on a stage like that is enough to break a lot of people and make them give up. I’m so impressed with how these guys just seem like they’re still ready for the next play.
I have a good feeling about it.
Ha exactly. Archie will just walk by and say hi if they sit there long enough.
Then you teach them. Can’t blame a kid for being young. I mean there was a time when I didn’t know who those guys were either, until my dad told me. I only know who Jack Tatum was, because I played safety in pee wee football, and our coaches always referenced “The Assassin” whenever we made a good hit. I had to ask who’s that? Now imagine a kid from Florida who is 20 years younger then me, and 50 years younger then my parents who were the generation that looked up to Tatum. Of course you’d have to teach them who that is. Now Archie is different, because they’ll eventually meet him on campus. But Jim Brown, they should at least know the name. He’s the Babe Ruth of football.
Welp... it’s your funeral, Trev.
Yeah. I hope so. If they’re going to do what TUN and Wisconsin did, with the triple teaming chase, someone else on the D line is going to have to make them pay for it. Someone else needs to level up and become a game wrecker. If that happens we win. Can’t nobody handle Chase and Harrison if they’re both on fire. I hope Zach has a lot of growth in practice this month, cuz we’ll need him. Too bad Cooper used his last game on TUN, he would be just the guy we need for Clemson.
Or maybe Rutgers getting back together with coach Schiano? Although he’d probably win more games at Cincinnati.
That was a glorious time.
I remember watching that one on TV
Penn State Game, in Columbus. I don’t remember exactly what year, just that Sean Springs was on the team. And that it was a gloomy day. The only other one I’ve seen in person was when we played Texas and Vince Young pulled a miracle out of his butt in the final minutes and crushed my soul. I was going through some really hard stuff in life that night, and was hoping that the game be a good distraction that would lift my spirits. Haha. It definitely did not. But before the final 2 minutes we were controlling the entire game, and the atmosphere was so loud and exciting, I was having a blast.
This is a great award! I wish someone had thought of this a long time ago.
There is a really great photo opportunity here. Get Coach Meyer to the ceremony to pose with his 3 recruits that are Heisman finalists in the same year.... that’s got to be a great feeling for him to see.
He’s been on the team for at least 3 years though, hasn’t he? I think he only has one year of eligibility left, so if he wants to see any playing time, before his career is over, he might not have a choice but to leave. Unless I’m wrong. Maybe he redshirted.
That’s a lot of valid points.
Amazing. Let’s do that again. This kid is a weapon.
You were right! You’re just ahead of your time.
Let’s do it!
Maybe we put Hilliard in Baron’s current role, rotating with Boren in the middle, and have Baron replace Harrison. Finally let him play outside where he really excels.
This is great news!
great point. Recruiting is a huge part of coaching
It’s funny how honestly surprised we all are. This wasn’t even on our radar as a possibility because we’ve genuinely been conditioned to assume OSU is not really in consideration for coach of the year. We just went 12-0 and dominated all year, and none of us actually expected our coach to receive any awards.
Yet here we are...
Haha me too
Exactly. Coaches are hyper competitive people. They ALL think if they had the OSU job, they’d go undefeated too.
Great Resources still require great coaching to win, but every coach thinks they are a great coach.
Thanks! Yeah, I just logged on to say how good the music was. Them Drums!
