I agree with pretty much everything that has been said here, but imo we're ignoring the elephant in the room--something that was briefly touched on earlier--the absence of Jaquan Lyle. The kid was a cancer, and the team is so much better off without him. This team genuinely likes each other, and it shows--and they're a helluva lot more fun to watch as a result.
I can't even watch them anymore--they look lethargic and disinterested, similar to Thad Matta's teams of the last few years. Time for new blood, a coaching infusion so to speak--we're seeing what it's doing for the mens program ;)
wow--it sounds like we're in a 'now or never' mode...I didn't realize the predicament the program was in after this season...thanks for the info.
Really liked the direction of this team over the last few years, but they seem to be trending downward this season. I just don't see much (any) improvement from game to game, and their transition defense is terrible.
Agreed--they must know something we don't, cause a whole bunch are coming back
Looks like all the weapons are in place, now let's hope they're utilized to their full potential...and I have a feeling with Day/Wilson having a year with Coach Meyer under their belts, they're ready to unleash the fury.
It's (always) a great time to be a Buckeye!
...when referring to SEC recruits ;)
ditto--how the hell did this get THREE dv's???
what they must do to help the team that is in no small part to coaching....
Looking forward to watching our future Buckeyes as I wait out this bitterly cold dead period...only three more months until the Spring Game!!!
we sure as heck didn't need this... https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaabk/williams-calls-out-tar-heels-after-shocking-loss-to-wofford/ar-BBH71CW?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=U141DHP
Wish the young man good luck, but after watching and listening to his dad during the live feed last night, I'm not at all surprised. It's tough to lose a 4-star kid, but this may be a blessing in the long run.
Stability within the coaching staff is key--just look at the improvement our QB's and offense made in year two of Tom Herman. These kids need consistency and familiarity with what the coaches want, and what better way than to play for these same coaches year in and year out...hell, you need to look no further than our d-line under Larry Johnson.
for a program that supposedly "doesn't get highly rated defensive tackles", this is HUGE....BOOM!!!
...and don't forget Mickey Marotti in this equation--the guy's worth his weight in GOLD!!!
Love seeing new Buckeye trees being planted...GO BUCKS!!!
"Jim"..."Shea"...lol...you know these two personally?
0 TD's 5 INT's 280yds combined vs Bama and LSU...looks like he'll be lighting up Indiana, Purdue and Maryland (btw, I'll bet little Bear is licking his chops)
He truly is not selecting players who can take it to the house.....but with a premium on avoiding TOs
We'll be fine...let's just take care of business and let the cards fall where they may...OSU by 17
