Justin Fields far surpassed my expectations for him this season. The kid had never started a college game and played sparingly at Georgia his freshman year, and he comes in and played great. With the more time he puts in working with Day and the receivers, he's only gonna get better.

There are a lot of insufferable fan-bases, but my word - Clemson fans are without a doubt, some of the absolute worst. 

I don't even care if that post was in jest, Clemson fans are terrible.

It's pretty wild to think that when Vrabel came back to OSU to work with Fickell - the guy had zero coaching experience. He's since rocketed through the coaching ranks in a very short amount of time - going from a college assistant job to NFL position coach to NFL coordinator to NFL head coach in 7 years. Of course him leaving OSU paved the way for Larry Johnson to come to Columbus and I think we're all pretty freakin' happy with that.

It's funny though - if Vrabel's dream is to come back to Ohio State someday - that would be an interesting step for him to take. But what about Day? Do you think if he continues to be successful at OSU that he'd want to try out the NFL?

This is yet another reason why I don't watch or pay attention much to the talking head national media guys. They are completely out of touch with things. Most of them don't watch games - just highlights and look at box scores. Vilma has probably only watched highlights of Clemson games and saw Etienne on some good runs and putting up big numbers. Same with Dobbins. Plus they're in the opinion game - they're paid to have them, regardless of how dumb they are.

Agreed. While yes, the Buckeyes 'should've' won the game with the Gophers, most folks and national writers included seem to all be recognizing OSU's body of work so far and that the loss to Minnesota was a) on the road and b) they were playing without their number 2 leading scorer, Duane Washington Jr.

That's one way to look at it, I suppose. But I'm not sure you can really say it was an inexcusable screw-up. If I recall the story correctly, they were neck and neck, then Burrow fell behind in the Spring with an injury of some kind and didn't get the number of reps Haskins did leading up to the Spring Game. What was Urban supposed to do - still go with Burrow even though Haskins had moved ahead of him?

Haskins had an incredible season last year while Burrow was not asked to do a whole lot at LSU. Things really opened up for him when they brought in Joe Brady this year and their offense was revamped. To say Burrow 'fits our offense' better than Haskins did, I beg to differ. Day tailored the offense to his strengths, which is the same thing that he's done with Fields.

DPJ lowered his head and the initial hit from Fuller was high but ended up going to his chest. If DPJ doesn't lower himself, there's no issue with the hit. I don't know what the heck you're supposed to do as a defender. Are they supposed to predict what the offensive player is gonna do in fractions of a millisecond?

Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the reversal.

I think Nico and DPJ are both very good - but they haven't been developed much, if at all, since they set foot on campus there - or so it seems. It could be them as players, but I blame coaching for most of their issues. 

I remember wanting DPJ pretty bad when he was coming up in recruiting and I think Hartline could've made a big difference for him.
