The kid will be a College Freshman in 2025. Sure hoping Jim is still the coach then----means---Lots of W's for us!!
Tate could win a Heisman at West Virginia. He is super talented. The real bummer is the wasted season of 2017 and Not Going to Haskins or Martell instead of JT. JT was just a very limited guy in terms of speed (running) and accfuracy (throwing). JT beat 1 elite team as a starter (Oklahoma 2016) the rest of the really good teams he played, he lost. Without JT breaking his leg, there is no 2014 National Championship, PERIOD. And no, I do not consider Michigan an Elite team, the proof on the field for 2 decades + proves they are not.
Doug Flutie played in a NFL 30 years ago when offensive/defensive lineman avg. 6' 2.50" and 271 lbs. Today's NFL, they avg. 6' 5.5" and 313 lbs. And Doug Flutie at 5' 9.25" was a giant compared to Murray.
Problem---Tate is in fact really good----he will be great at his next stop, at West Virgina---a likely Heisman Cand. However, if Tate leaves and Fields in not granted permission to play in 2019----Gasp, could U of M win with OSU having a unknown 3rd choice QB???
True-----but that's a pretty Big "IF" in the equation. OSU has 3 National Titles in the last 50 years, better than most, but not common by any stretch. I wish Carmen Jackson would have choose OSU, he didn't, and he is now a National Champion. Well played on his part.
I see someone has Isaiah Prince as the 9th Offensive Tackle in the NFL Draft. GOOD RIDDANCE! Watching him False Start 2,3,4 times a games, every week and having that dumb "who me" look on his face. The guy was the 12th man for the opposing defense, often killing drives by himself.
Carmen Jackson, the #1 player from Ohio last year---who left for Clemson. Yeah, he has a NC Ring. If he never plays another down, he made the right choice. A National Title is immortal----We still honor the 68 Team, that was 50 years ago.
Clemson my suck, but they have more wins vs. OSU in the last 5 years than: Michigan, Northwestern, Maryland, Iowa, Minnesota, Rutgers, and Nebraska---COMBINED Clemson 2-0 Those teams listed: 1 - 23
How good does a Championship Game of OSU vs. Georgia sound now????
Haskins is the 1st QB off the board in the weakest QB Class for the NFL Draft in 15 years. No Way he stays. If next if in 2019, you get hurt, You have a less than 2018 year (you think another 50 TD's /5,000 yards is realistic?) Other QB's emerge. You go from being a Top 10 pick to a top 25-40 pick, CONGRATS---you just cost yourself 20-30 million dollars
OSU had finally taken control of the game vs Clemson, until botched punt return in the 3rd Quarter of the 2013 Orange Bowl. At near the 50 yard line, it should have set up OSU for prime field position, another score, and a chance to put a nail in the game. Instead, OSU botched the punt, Clemson recovers, Clemson thru a bomb on the next play for a TD, Clemson goes on to win.
No---I don't remember that one!!!! lol
As someone with a college degree, a good paying job, working 9-5, 5 days a week, who love OSU football----Dwayne, take the money! You will be the first QB taken in the worst NFL QB draft prospects in a decade. Next year, everything could change. Injury, Bad Season, Other QB's on the rise----This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance for a $20-40 million dollar lottery ticket to play a game most would play for free. With a little money management, that 4 years of work on that 1st NFL contract---No Would Never Have to Work again!
Want to truly see how dumb the National Media and even coaches are? Wait til next weeks final coaches poll and AP poll. Ohio State will be behind Notre Dame and Oklahoma. To some idiots, they will be behind Florida and maybe even Georgia. It is just a lack of knowledge and poor effort.
No, they are the "KING" because of Results on the Field. OSU got the whole SEC Ball rolling by laying an egg (2006) vs. Florida then the again the next year to LSU. In the last 12 seasons---9 times the SEC has won the title, including a 7-in-a-row streak in that span. While mostly Alabama,----Florida (2), LSU and Auburn have got in on the act. Last 12 Years since OSU lost to Florida.
SEC: 9 titles
ACC: 2 titles
Big Ten: 1 title
Pac 12: NONE
Big 12: NONE
It's the SEC dominance that has became a narraitive. OSU is holding up it's end of the bargain----the rest of the Big Ten? NOPE
Gone so SOON? Didn't even get a chance to know ya.
Signed: Beating Ohio State, The Big Ten Championship game, & the (ha) Playoffs!
For Zach Harrison: What would be the appeal of going to Michigan? They can't beat OSU, ever, under any circumstance---PERIOD. Without beating OSU, there is no path to a Big Ten Title. With no Big Ten title---there is no path to the playoffs. Do you want to be a Rashon Gary (0-3 vs. OSU, no title games or playoffs) or Chase "T-S Fabio" Winovich (0-5 vs. OSU, no title games or playoffs). Except for people who grew up in Michigan (even then---go to MSU and get coached up) why would good players go to U of M with their beyond awful track record in meaningful games, and 1 win vs. OSU during these recruits ENTIRE LIFETIME?
Nowinsovich is the Holiday Gift that keeps giving-----The best line in his retarded statement: "What we have built here is a powerhouse". WHAT???? Powerhouse? Of mediocrity? I am so confused. No Division titles, No B1G TEN Championship Appearances, No Playoff Appearances, Michigan never even made a BCS Champ appearance (1998-2013) second tier bowl games, only Big Ten team to lose a bowl game last year, and played 2 top 10 quality teams all year in 2018---lost to both. What a joke.
To dopes like Chase Winovich or Rashan Gary---who were recruited by Ohio State but chose Michigan---how must they feel, never winning ANYTHING in their college careers? For those OSU fans who don't think Big Ten titles matter, only National Titles----imagine if you never won a Big Ten Division title or played in or won a Big Ten title game? Michigan players and fans in this century have no idea what it feels like to be a winner. Why anyone who is not born in the state of Michigan goes to school there is beyond me.
You were committed to a coach who: Has 2 undefeated seasons with no championship, 3 National Championships, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, and Cotton Bowl wins, 7 conference titles (Including the last 2 in-a-row), whose worst finish in the Big Ten is tied for 1st in the Division, and has a .850 win percentage. The new coach has: 3 wins.
To be completely fair to these kids, Yeah, I would re-evaluate too!
I find it amusing the people who dislike Urban the most are people in the media; most of whom have never played competitive sports & none have coached at a Elite National Level. They have no clue, yet they run their mouths.
My biggest coaching concern is in Ann Arbor not Columbus. Would love to see Jim get that "contract for life" mentioned a few years ago, absolutely hate to see him go to the Packers.
