Thanks for the recap 29! I think our GK situation should improve with Skylar Wahlund and Christian Tomei. I'll admit when I was watching this game I was calling for a switch at goalie. I think it's time to give Sklar some PT.
I don't see them taking advantage of ANY unsettled situations. Time to scrap the slo-mo, deliberate offense. Put Jasinski at X. Jack Myers in front of the cage. More off ball movement. Back to fundamentals.
It was terrible. I said to myself many times watching that game.....Jack Myers is really, really good. I would take him off of X though and put Jasinski back there to feed Myers. I also noticed most of our shooting is sidearm...terribly inaccurate. Need more over the top or 3/4 at best. The off ball movement looked like a mosh pit in front of the net. Back to basics and fundamentals.
Finally. This kid needs to be on the field ALL THE TIME!
Born and bred Buckeye here.....have lived in NH since 1985. I miss Columbus everyday. When Day got the nod, I said to my friend..."great now we're gonna see Ohio State gear EVERYWHERE!" The bandwagon is quite full up here...and it annoys the S- out of me. NH folks-known as "granite-staters" are indeed a proud, hard working bunch for the most part, They love their state motto "Live Free or Die".....but have zero clue about college football. UNH hockey is king....but they haven't done well for a few years. I can't really find many people to have an actual conversation about anything but Tom Brady and the Patriots. I cannot wait until the ride comes to an end for TB, BB and The Patriots insufferable fans....then what? I'm sure there will be some die hard Pats fans that stick around, but I fear the Ohio State bandwagon will have a wait list.
Use him as a WR not a TE.
I think we need to use Ruckert as a WR. Line him up EVERYWHERE! Forget....for the most part...using him to block. He's a mismatch no matter what.
Thanks for yet another great re-cap "29"! You have my vote for team MVP!
UA going to play IMG and Culver this year....yikes!
Great write up "29"! I made the 3 hour trip with my wife.....beautiful sunny day in Amherst! Great to see so many Buckeye fans!
Duck....were you at the game? I made the 3 hour drive...it was a great game!
Class of '84 here....got to see the LEGEND play football....Mark Pfister class of '82. I remember the rumor going around school was he could bench 500lbs.
Class of '84. That sir was hilarious!
Thanks B29 for the first of a season long of fantastic lacrosse updates! Can't wait to see my Buckeyes at UMass!
Strengthen the off-hand too....
I let this kid stay "lean" maybe 20 lbs and there is a great outside LB.
Good one! I'm proud of you.
I see the original sentiment lasted long. Humanity sucks.
I live in Southern NH some really good lacrosse within driving distance. Might go to UAlbany for a game and probably down to Yale. We shall see. Going to try and talk my wife into going to Philly for Championship weekend!
Road trip to Amherst in a few weeks to see my Buckeyes play UMass!
I truly think Ruckert should be used as a WR and lined up as such. Slot, out wide...forget the blocking...just let this kid catch the damn ball.
And finally some size! Let's use that like Clemson.....
Ruckert needs to be used as a WR more than a TE. His talents would be wasted if he just blocks, seals the edge and turns around as an outlet. He should be lined up all over the place. Out wide, one-on-one with a 5'11" cb...mismatch. In the slot covered by a LB...mismatch. Red zone jump balls...mismatch!
