I expect a better game this time around remember the youth of that team but more importantly remember the scheme and type of offense we had with JT. It seems everything we did on offense happened within 15 yards of the line of scrimmage we had no downfield attack I think Ryan Day has made it much harder to defend us. Also it wasn't just Clemson that shut us down there were teams in the Big Ten like Michigan State that would snuff us out....Penn State would rack up sacks and cause us problems especially when Isiah Prince was going through his issues. The problems with our offense was always there Clemson just exposed us on another level...that offense just wasn't very good we never made great adjustments either
Lets just say Borland matches up better against a team like Northwestern rather than a team like....uhhh... LSU?
I agree with you but at the end of the day I bet Browning can do all the things you mentioned if given the opportunity he may not catch on to everything overnight but neither did Borland
It would look just like the Florida game that's your answer
Maybe it was the type of players we were recruiting from Ohio that got us rolled in those games. We weren't into speedy athletic players... it was a style difference in my opinion our teams had a hard time matching up with those fast, athletic southern teams. I think we could have went through Ohio and put together a team that was more suited to play against those guys not saying we would have won but I think we could have definitely done better. We probably would've had to recruit players we normally didn't recruit and go to schools we normally didn't go to but I'm sure we could have come up with something that was a better fit ...those teams we had back then were kinda slow and unathletic....lol.... we got more speed and athleticism in Ohio than what those teams represented
I'll say this much some things happened but it wasn't exactly what the news was trying to say they definitely pushed a one sided story that was not 100% accurate.
wow didn't know that no wonder someone said Georgia does the least with the most talent
You hit it right on the nose I'm not predicting what Georgia will do with him but how you utilize players is sometimes more important than their talent. Look at all the talent we had on those teams after we won the title we should have been playing for a championship every year....also that Clemson team that beat us didn't have all the top rated classes like we did some of their classes were not even top 10. I believe if we get top 5 classes each year, have great game strategy and utilize players right we have a shot.
That's true but I'm not very worried Clemson showed me that you can win without having the best recruiting class they beat us and Alabama with classes that were ranked 11,9,16 and 15 according to 24/7 sports. If you get good players and hit on a few 5 stars I think you have a shot to be contenders. Anyway all this ranking stuff isn't perfect for example Shea Patterson and about 3 other QB's I haven't heard of to this day were ranked ahead of Haskins as a recruit...they definitely got it wrong on that .
I doubt he was a miss he was just trying to start over a guy who was a CAPTAIN and had seniority over him. I think no matter how good Browning was they were going to stay loyal to Borland. Think about it they let him start all last season even though he was hurt that shows you their loyalty to him as a captain. I'm not saying its right or wrong but I really feel this team looks at Borland similar to how they looked at JT he's the one guy that's going to start no matter what... the coaches have secured his job
LOL..I was wondering if I was the only one puzzled after reading what he said about our 0-line. That's all I needed to hear to know that I can't take this guy too serious.
Now you know the one player they're afraid of is Borland I don't think they have the balls to replace him he's like the new JT Barret of the team in order to remove him you will need approval from the University, the Athletic director and Urban Meyer
LOL... I'm surprised a player that isn't from the South got a 5 star rating in the first place. Usually the further up north you go the more stars you loose. A player can start out in Georgia as a 5 star by the time he gets to Kentucky he's a 4 star, when he gets to Ohio he's a 3 star, when he enters Illinois he's a 2 star and when he crosses into Wisconsin he's no longer rated.
Maybe he didn't pan out because the coaching staff never gave him a chance just like they did with all the other talented top rated linebackers we have
I guess he got tired of watching linebackers he knew he was better than start over him I don't blame him I would leave too. The linebackers we have starting are not the type of linebackers you find on championship defenses lets just admit this and stop fooling ourselves. Would these guys start on our 2014 championship team that beat Oregon?.. would they start for Alabama?.. what about Clemson? if the answer is no then maybe this is an indication that we need to give the other guys a chance. I understand we will go through growing pains with any linebacker we put on the field but I would rather go through growing pains with the guy who is bigger, faster, more athletic and more explosive....that's what were lacking at this position
We all know what we need to do we just have to wait and see if it gets done.
LOL now this is beyond funny I think Martel has to be P Diddy......where do people come up with stuff like this LOL
they're NEVER going to set Borland or Werner down...NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER EVER... They are going to get the JT Barret treatment.
That's true but trust me some of it has to do with location I truly believe that if some of the Ohio players were from the south they would have a higher ranking. I'm not saying they would jump from a 4 star to 5 star but that could happen but overall their ranking in the top 100 to 200 would probably be higher. Remember human beings are ranking these players its just their opinion.
They need to reopen the linebacker competition its that plain and simple don't get me wrong you will go through growing pains with all of them but I would rather go through growing pains with the linebackers that are bigger, faster and more athletic. Also Browning and Mitchell were rated #1 and #2 linebackers in the country plus we have other highly rated linebackers we really need to see what other guys are capable of I don't wanna see the same thing we saw last year. You can't have top rated linebackers setting on the bench this would never happen at Alabama they play their 5 stars and win championships at OSU were all about keeping people happy we don't like to make tough decisions that may hurt peoples feelings
All I know is that they Ryan Day needs to open back up the linebacker competition
Ohio kids are definitely underrated if the top Ohio recruits were from the South they would all be 4 and 5 stars.
it says he runs 4.47
Sounds exactly like what we need to do but it will never happen. Werner and Borland are going to be our staring linebackers until they graduate. They have found a place in Urbans heart and he will never sit them down... Borland, Werner and JT are all a part of Urbans little family they have a key to his house
The committee isn't foolish we will be the last option when it comes to a one loss team getting in.
