What have you seen from the LBs in the first 3 games to show that the bullets are back? Does any one LB stand out?

Also, who is the greatest legend, not a player or coach in the OSU-ttun rivalry and why is it your mom? Her 5 gold pants quip to Harbough is one of my favorites.

In terms of freshman year game time, you're probably right. However, redshirting is really more about the likelihood that he wants to stay beyond 4 years. Based on his upside, that's a pretty big doubt even before he steps foot on campus. You never know what will happen, but he has an injury redshirt option as well if that happens. In my opinion (which is completely unimportant), I think he should get every minute possible, even in garbage time, to help him progress as soon as possible. He'll probably only be a starter for 2 years like Chase Young and Nick Bosa.

Not Tate, but it's a QB. Rumblings that Day had some contact through a HS coach as he hasn't official informed his current school of his desire to transfer. I was just wondering of Day might have been in his area checking up on other recruits before early signing day.

On a related note...does anyone know where Ryan Day is today? I heard some rumor news about a potential transfer and was trying to match up his recent travel schedule to see if it could be legit. I checked his twitter but he doesn't have much on there about his recruiting travels.

It's a good sign that the coaching staff was working to find ways to get Davis involved already with big packages. It's not like he's been sitting all season and if he forced the coaches into that mindset, he's clearly been practicing and progressing well. I have a feeling he'll take the opportunity and we'll spend a lot of time over the next few games running to his side of the line.

It's definitely not that simple. The NFL has 32 teams. Scheduling is much different. Plus, the dates and order are the only thing left up to schedule because the matchups are determined already. You play 16 games. 6 in your division, 4 from a division in your conference which rotates yearly, 4 from a division in the opposite conference which rotates yearly, and then 2 from the opposite conference who placed identically to you in their division the previous year. There isn't a system for this that would work easily in college football. It would be extremely complicated and a rotation wouldn't make it remotely fair.

I know we were short on DB's because of Pryor and Arnette, but I wonder if they could have used a safety or corner to qb spy instead of a linebacker. The linebackers were in the right place sometimes, but couldn't catch up except the one play where Malik caught him before he got too far away from the line. That was a great play, but it was the only time all game. It's not like he's that big or hard to tackle. I think the speed of a safety or corner would have made a big difference there.

I completely agree on 3. I have to think it'll be something they work on in the next few weeks. Even if you don't snap the ball there. You could set up in the pistol and have Haskins step up to the line and hard count. I bet you get a first down from that hard count 50% of the time in big pressure situations like that.

Even then, if you watch the replay, the guards and center won at the line and would have easily had the first down if it was a qb keeper. It was an edge rusher that got in the backfield.

I think this year is our all around most talented group. We won't be able to truly judge them until a few years have gone by to see if the first true 5 star DT turns good. All that being said, Big Hank is still the best DT I've seen under Meyer at OSU. Not that others have been poor, but he made it impossible for opposing teams to move the ball between the tackles.

The debate between Dobbins and Weber is interesting. I think they're about even right now. Weber has developed his game to get to this point from where he was as a freshman. Dobbins is much more naturally gifted. The difference is going to be Dobbins' work ethic. If he puts in the work, he'll distance himself from Weber.

I think the point is that a less rigid helmet will keep people from using their head as a weapon. Rugby works that way. It's also similar to how boxing without gloves is actually safer long term because you can't hit that hard before you hurt your hand. Boxing gloves let you hit harder without hurting yourself which leads to far more concussions. If football needs to do something to get away from concussions, I could see the eventual solution being a move to a padded but not rigid helmet.

That's not really the same anymore is it? The rules protect receivers a great deal in plays across the middle where as the returner is only protected on a punt until he touches the ball or if he calls a fair catch. Collisions are huge in the return game. I'd say thats definitely a bigger risk for concussions than as a receiver.
