I'm also very interested in the development of Tyreke Johnson. I can imagine a kid with his talent would step right in after next year when Okudah, Arnette and possibly Wade leave for the Pro's.
Tyreke Johnson will be the next great corner at OSU. After Wade and Okudah go first round to the NFL as well.
100% This ^^^^^. Also, great time to get Proctor on the field at Safety.
Can someone please just convince the Columbus team to have all OSU players? The ratings would be great given the following most of these guys have after they leave the Scarlet and Gray. It would also give OSU the opportunity to not only showcase their talent in the NFL, but also in the AAF.
Hafley is as IMPRESSIVE I've seen as a young coach. This guy gets it. I haven't been this excited about our defense in a while.
This ^^^^ Buckeye Pat Nailed this one. Kid should have had much more playing time here. Hate to see him go. Good luck KJ
This x 1,000,000,000,000,000
Yes please. These are freakin sweet!
With Tyreke Johnson waiting in the wings as the next first rd. pick. Kid is legit and should see the field as well.
Who was responsible for starting Borland and Werner the entire year on Defense and Pryor at Safety? That’s who needs to be shown the door. I don’t care who it was, get them out of the program.
Only changes I think should be made to an 8 team format are as follows:
Automatic bid given to a conference champion provided they are also ranked in the top 10.
Regular season should be total of 11 games with 8 conference games per team. One championship game per conference.
1st Round Playoff game played at the higher seed campus. Top 4 play at Neutral site as it currently stands.
If we don’t get Fields let’s roll without state and Baldwin! I’ve got faith in both those guys!
Spot on! I've personally been looking forward to seeing Tate having a full shot to prove himself. He's been a hell of a Buckeye and cannot ask much more from a guy with his accolades coming in, learning the system, being a great representative of the University on and off the field. I'm sure that's what most Georgia fans would have preferred with Fields. Bide your time, earn it, and take advantage of the opportunity when it comes. I don't see any chance that Tate is not successful and I'd hate to see him on another sideline across from our beloved Buckeyes. He'd have a hell of a chip on his shoulder.
Tate, Baldwin and Fields, by CFP committee standards, I'm sure would all pass the "Eye Test" in a Ryan Day Buckeye Offense. Let the best man win the job and the other pieces fall where they may. Still much respect for Tate and how he chooses to handle these rumors and waves of negativity.
There is no controversy. Tate is a Leader and fierce competitor, not to mention Gatorade Player of the year. The kids been nothing but All Buckeye despite sitting for two years learning what he needs to, putting in the time, and being nothing but respectful to the team and the program. It shows true maturity. He deserves a shot and I believe he will get one. He understands more than anyone you come to Ohio State to compete. I wouldn’t hesitate to bet that Tate leads this Buckeye team to the Playoff, and quite possibly a NT. Love Baldwin and feel he is legit Pro Style QB that can also succeed in this offense, but I’d personally like to see them give the reigns to Tate and let him prove what we all know he is capable of doing on the field. I’ve got a feeling he will make Buckeye nation very proud!
Pure and simple, #1. Wish we could've had him longer than 7. Was hoping for a decade of dominance.
But will they keep Larry Johnson. Please say yes....
The way he tracked that ball in the air, they ought to have our DB's watch that tape over and over again. Hell of a player. Bright future.
Best news EVER! Love our Coach! Go Buckeyes.
Texas beat OU, and Maryland beat Texas. We could do the “common opponent” argument all day. Bucks have a better resume with the win over TTUN
Same committee that leaves out a defending national champion Buckeye team with the likes of some of the greatest talent in the NFL right now. Doesn’t surprise me one bit. They are garbage. If the Bucks win out, and Oklahoma loses, they deserve a shot..PERIOD. And don’t give me any of this crap that UCF deserves to be ahead of Ohio State. UCF has 3 losses with Ohio States schedule, but instead they played a GARBAGE SCHEDULE. Allowed FAU to put up 36 pts against them, barely beat Memphis by 1 pt, and allowed Temple to put up 40 on them. But hey, they beat Cincy at home. They deserve it.... TRASH!
What is with all the questions about Ohio Recruits vs. Out of state recruits knowing the meaning of the game? I can't help but think it is only yet another reason for the media to try and take a shot at Urban Meyer because he recruits so much elite talent from out of state. Reporters are trying to gain another angle of why it's "Bad" for Ohio State and why Urban Meyer needs to go. It's really getting old, and I'll admit, this is all assumption on my part. But seriously, any person that goes to this game, any person that has any exposure to this game whatsoever can feel exactly how important this game is to it's fans, its players, and especially its current head coach. So much emphasis is put on this game especially by Urban Meyer, it doesn't matter where you've come from, you can feel it and he's made it clear you better understand it. Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye, no matter where you are from the meaning of THE GAME is the same!
Urban should keep recruiting the guys that deserve a shot to be on this elite squad no matter where they are from. I just as much as the next guy want them to be from Ohio and there can be an emphasis on finding those Ohio guys, but in no way do I want them to take precedence over someone who is a better athlete and better football player! Go Bucks! Beat TTUN!
Haskins and our Defense play inspired football. Werner, who I've been bashing all year, gets a pick to end the game. I celebrate on the field singing Sweet Caroline with my Dad and all my Buckeye brothers and sisters.
