It looks like 95% of the people here agree with me. Think only about winning. In basketball, I didn't care if I got no points if the team won.
I don't want my players even thinking about breaking an individual record. Selfishly thinking of records or awards doesn't cut it with me. LeBron broke Wilt's scoring record last night and didn't care. He talked about the win and the team improving.
Mathis sure has a cannon of an arm. Some of his passes are so high they bring rain.
Baldwin certainly comes from a top program at Lake Travis. Their 8th straight QB to go to a FBS college. Baker Mayfield being the most famous.
Some fans never sleep.
Great write up Kevin Harrish. Agree that the many of our position coaches need replacing. I'm sure quality coaches from across the country are lining up to coach at
one of the best football university in America.
If the gloves fit you must commit Mr. Fleming.
I like guys who want to stay instate (at tOSU) even though they could get a full scolly immediately somewhere else.
I finally found out what happened to Nick Bosa. He changed his name to Kenny Willekes and his number to #48...and plays for the Spartans. /s
The OL sure looks big...and slow...and confused.
I like Martell and think he should be getting more playing time. Especially when Haskins is having an off day. If Haskins isn't hitting his receivers, we're in trouble. Can we find a center who can hike the ball when he is supposed to?
I remember watching Paul Robinson in summer camp held at Wilmington College in 1968. Robinson was a track star at the University of Arizona and only played football one year after his track scholarship ended. Co-founder and first coach of the Bengals Paul Brown drafted a lot of unknown players out of college. He was the best judge of talent I've seen. Brown coached tOSU to its first national championship. The Cleveland Browns are named after him.
The Buckeyes have captains? /s
I agree. Find out who shows up in the games and not on the practice field. Forget seniority perks. The best man plays. Ask Chris Holtmann how that works.
I say play Martell some, play Ruckert some, play Petit-Frere some... find out who the "game" players are (like Brendon White and Keandre Jones) by getting them in. Stop being predictable on play calling. And don't start blaming the weather the day before the game.
The position coaches can't coach these guys. Maybe the replacements for Fickel, Coombs, Vrabel, Warinner, and Ash hurt the program more than we thought.
Keandre and White play like leaders and captains. The guys on the captains' list are just names.
You mean freshmen can play immediately and contribute?
I just talk about it, Holtmann actually does it.
The effort, hustle, and basketball IQ were great. The football team (and Urban) could learn a lot by watching the bb team today. Freshmen can and do contribute.
I thought their effort and attitude was great. Hustling and picking up loose balls many times. The early fouls on the Wessons need improvement. Holtmann can coach.
Some players are good practice players and some are game players. White looks like the latter. 100,000 people could see that in the Shoe. Time for Grinch to understand that or be replaced. He is in denial.
Some of these kids only want to start or take their ball and leave. If everyone did that, there'd be only 5 players on a team. (or 22 on a football team). I may be a crazy old geezer, but these selfish players really piss me off sometimes. Sorry.
I wouldn't be taking advice from Prince about line blocking. I do like how J.K. Dobbins is showing max effort.
The kid can play. I don't care about winning the star system. Only the games.
To paraphrase Allan Iverson: "We're talking about Nebraska, not Notre Dame, not LSU, we're talking about Nebraska man".
