We manufactured a lot of touches for Paris such as end around tip passes from the quarterback, wide receiver screens, and other short routes that made it easier on him to catch the ball and then use his athleticism to make it into a bigger play. Michigan really didn't manufacture him touches that would get DPJ the ball in space as we did for Paris.
There have been a ton of players with bad hands that have dominated in college. Marquise Brown had horrible drops but put up insane numbers at Oklahoma. Sammy Watkins has horrible hands but dominated at Clemson. Paris Campbell did not have good hands but put up numbers here. They did not find ways to get the ball into his hands in ways the other more successful college football teams have for players in similar scenarios. It also would be helpful if they had competent quarterback play that could've made his life easier.
These agents won't let their prospect work out at the combine if they were hurt even a month before it. I have seen people sit out the combine for way less than an ankle injury. Especially a player such as JK who really doesn't need to do the drills since everything is on film.
I doubt he would run at the combine if he was still hurt.
I don't know if he will beat DPJ in the 40, it will be very close. Because DPJ is a freak athlete and the combine is a type of event that he will put on a show in 40, vertical and 3 cone. I always thought he was very misused by the TTUN.
Dobbins is gonna be way under 4.49, that is the easy money. He dies out in long runs in games but for the 40 acceleration is everything and that is where he succeeds. Also if you see this article from here in 2017 ( https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2017/08/84172/photos-2017-ohio-state-football-top-40-yard-dash-times-and-more ) , JK was timed at 4.32 in 2017. JK will end up around 4.42 if I had to guess it.
What a solid haul that would be for Coach Stud.
I would very much assume he would adapt considering he adapted offenses to three very different quarterbacks in his time on the staff.
I don't really agree, Garrett and Zach will be great but you can't expect these guys to replace all american level production immediately. I think we will rely much more on Fields to run it next season than we did this year to help make up some of the drop off between JK and Master.
It is more it just doesn't make much sense. We are pretty stacked at tight end next year with Farrell and Ruckert. Also, Cade never played tight end before in even high school where he was a running back. So it is just an interesting decision if it is true.
The yellow line was at least a yard off the entire game
I think that has more to do with quarterback than anything. Clemson looked at that same level, we were with J.T. in 2016-2017 when they had Kelly Bryant at quarterback for that one season. Clemson has been consistently so good outside of that year is because they had Watson and Lawrence. Just as the four teams that made the playoffs this year, arguably had the four best college quarterbacks that were healthy. Quarterbacks have also shown more of a willingness in recruiting to go to schools far from home for college.
Ryan Day is a better game day coach than Urban Meyer
What is considered a "down" season. Because a down season for Ohio State lately has just been not making the playoff with at worst 2 losses. Especially with the level of recruiting and development at QB and receiver, I don't see those "down" seasons coming.
You mean spring of '21 because there is zero chance Justin stays a senior year.
Obviously there will be slight changes from changes in coaching and personnel but the overall scheme should stay the same. Day has expressed his large belief in a One high safety and heavy uses of cover 3. That part of the defense should not change.
Huge to get probably the best recruiter we had under Urban back at a crucial time for that DB room. How it will work out with him calling plays remains to be seen but I am confident this hire will work out great for both sides.
Yeah I’m sure they have a good idea but there are always random transfers popping up. Like I don’t think we foresaw Baldwin transferring after spring a year ago at this because we had to rush to get Hoak. I just don’t see why not keep the door open who knows if he would’ve even wanted to come here for sure. Are they really that sure Martinez is going to not flip before signing day and leave us all wondering what could have been.
I never said it was alright for OBJ to slap the cop on the ass. I said the cop was being soft in this situation and threatening to arrest the players for smoking cigars was over the top. Even more so knowing that other cops were telling players it was okay to smoke cigars.
It was one cop acting on his own. Other officers were not enforcing this as referenced in this article. https://sports.yahoo.com/cop-reportedly-threatened-to-arrest-lsu-players-smoking-celebratory-cigars-in-superdome-194003337.html
I feel as if they were truly banning them from smoking the cigars in the locker room there would've been more than just one cop in this video doing it. Also, it is very unlikely that a locker room would burn down from a cigar touching the ground. From this article, you can see that it was just one officer doing this of his own volition and other officers were not. https://sports.yahoo.com/cop-reportedly-threatened-to-arrest-lsu-players-smoking-celebratory-cigars-in-superdome-194003337.html If it was such a major deal to prevent cigar smoking, don't you believe the other officers would have also been enforcing this?
Really a bummer. Interesting we won't even host him and see where the numbers are at later to find out if we were able to take him.
Obviously OBJ did something you can not do. But, it is really stupid that the cop was there in the first place investigating people. Does the cop not expect there to be damage to a locker room after a championship celebration? Why not just wait till they are gone and send LSU a bill for the damage.
The cop for sure is soft for investigating the locker room for damage while people were still in it. But obviously you cant touch a police officer no matter who you are. I just don't understand why they didn't expect a team who just won a national title to not smoke cigars and also expected to have no damage in the locker room afterwards.
Yeah if it even ever went to trial good luck getting a jury of people from New Orleans to convict him.
