Agree. And that doesn't mean OSU shouldn't be #1 in December. But today on November 12 LSU should be #1.

Chase Young's value is not 15 points. It's probably closer to 5 points than 15. Which for a non-QB actually is a lot. But if we win by 24 with him, we probably win by 17 without.

My guess is that the staff already determined that they're going to burn it, and he'll be playing a ton in the next 2 weeks. So he could have played 1 play against Wisconsin and it wouldn't have mattered. And I didn't downvote you lol.

One thing to consider is if Alabi is out long term. No clue what his injury is, and he could be back against Maryland, but if he's out for the rest of the regular season, it's prudent to burn Jones redshirt.

From my understanding, it's not his plant foot. So while it will absolutely affect his ability to move in the pocket and scramble, he won't be completely incapable of being at least good if not his great self. CN they beat LSU with a good but not great Tua though? Will be interesting.

IMO he's the #2 to JK's #1. What I mean by that is if JK were to get injured and miss an entire game, you wouldn't see McCall as the #1. I think you'd still see him as the #2, but with Marcus or Master as the #1. If that makes sense. Because I agree that I don't know if he can take the beating of 20 carries. But 5? He's dynamic and can handle that kind of a load.

Typically you would have a near equal number of offensive and defensive guys, but I could see 5 captains with only a single offensive guy. One being KJ Hill, but then Young (he's been said to be the vocal leader on defense), Cooper, Tuf, and Fuller.

I almost did, but I scanned some of the threads there and thought maybe that forum was more for technical site issues.
Comment 15 Aug 2019
He technically said going forward. As in, not Day now compared to Urban the past 5 years. But Day now compared to if Urban we're still coach.

Unless Zachary Evans goes there and GA takes the gamble of losing Milton because they see Evans as that much better.  But if no Evans, then no flipping.  Agreed.

You must not travel much if you think 3 hours round-trip is a deal breaker when it comes to flying. Driving? Yes, because driving an extra 3 hours sucks. But flying? The most annoying part is the travel to the airport and security. That's not part of the equation since there's no difference for a 4 hour flight or 5.5 hour flight.

I mean, for me it's 11-1 if the question is asked from our side if it means that OSU is still in the playoff (either because they still go to the B1G Championship game or because they go straight to the playoff at 11-1).  If it knocks them out of the playoff completely, then it's tough.  Probably go 8-4 with a win.

Bax is unbearable. I think he's actually a good guy in real life, but as an OSU online personality he makes me want to pull my hair out.
Comment 22 Jul 2019
Quite literally the opposite. Was in reply to "Yep, then we saw him coach." You can blame 11W's posting structure where it stops indenting to show who you're replying to after a few replies.
Comment 21 Jul 2019
I'm all for Wyatt Davis, NPF, and Bowen splitting time nearly equally at the 2 right spots. We've never seen it at OSU, at least under Urban, but I've seen that elsewhere. At least at MSU I remember that.

You truly think Derrick Henry ran a 4.3 in HS, yet somehow slowed all the way down to 4.54 at his pro combine?  Like, that's seriously your stance?  Maybe, and this is a crazy theory, he actually didn't run a 4.3 in HS.  Crazy thought, so you're probably right.

Comment 18 Jul 2019
4.6 is elite for a back his size. I could see him like a Derrick Henry type player. Big bodied, good speed. Maybe not capable of being a Zeke type elite back, but likely to be at a minimum very good. Probably a higher floor than Bijan, but lower ceiling.
