We’re pretty good around these here parts of letting people know what we want to see when it comes to the football sport. More specifically, what we want to see form our Buckeyes! Alot of it’s wishful thinking but for the most part, it really is what the folks wanna see. I provided the outline with offense; defense; back-up QB play; new playmaker show; how many times will Coach Coombs’ hair catch fire; and whatever else they want. Let’s get started with the head honcho.
Offense- We’ve been hearing about some of the new aerial weaponry, it’s time to see it- Vannett/Baugh at TE and the stable of athletes at WR. I’m also interested in seeing Curtis Samuel after hearing a lot of good things this spring.
Defense- We’re running Press/4 coverage exclusively now… what will that look like against the spread? How will our linebacker play be different than last year? And will Joey Bosa kill someone on accident?
Back Up QB play- No one will replace Kenny G’s leadership, but is there a serviceable option for when Braxton’s resting?
New playmakers Show- Again, Curtis Samuel is the guy that I’m keeping my eye out for, as well as some of the young pups on the offensive line
How many times will Coach Coombs hair catch fire- Depends on if he gets to run with the “can you beat a Buckeye” contestants again.
One more week until Christmas! Hopefully you’re getting your shopping all taken care of… and today’s soundtrack from three of my favorite artists will help inspire you to remember the real meaning of the season. (Honestly, that wasn’t the strangest thing I found this year…)
Ohio State looks to continue their B1G win streak
And here we go… the first edition of our weekly staff wishlist!
Welcome to a special edition tBBC Round-table© where a few staffers decided to get together and come up with some admittedly absurd comments. We just went around the table looking for possible events this football season, be it on the stage of Ohio State, B1G or college football in general.
Disclaimer: this is presented in the spirit of pre-season ‘decompression’; no one here suggests that you use this information for possibly nefarious purposes.
Here we go, in no particular order… well, actually it’s in alphabetical order.
Q: How many times will the media try to justify Johnny Manziel’s actions?
A: Over for sure…..one a day for the remainder of the football season.
And I’ve already seen one!
Q: How many games will Ohio State win?
A: Well we aren’t losing any games so figure out the answer yourself!
Follow up comment by Eric
A: Set the bar at 11.5 games and you’ll have a tough bet. I might take the under on that.
(Eric may have his research methodology down pat, something to consider.)
Lots of news and notes to catch you up on before Walter White gets back to work.
Absent- Donovan Munger has missed most of camp thus far with some academic issues, and now has a medical (blood clot?) that will see him redshirting for this season. Najee Murray was also not present today, having been suspended for the team for at least the duration of training camp for a violation of team rules. Lots of speculation on this one, but at this point it’s only speculation.
Well, it’s that time of year again. As you’re reading this, the 2013 edition of the Scarlet and Gray are donning practice gear and headed out to battle… well, at least the rookies are, that is.
Last night was Hotel Check In, and while it was a less extravagant event than in the past, Josh Winslow was still able to get some candid shots of the Buckeyes getting ready to launch the season. Be aware that, due to changes in the process, not everyone came in at the same time or via the media-friendly entrance.
His full gallery is a “must view” as we get closer to kickoff, but here are some shots/players that stood out:
Welcome to the calm before the storm… unless you’re an NIT junkie, then your Madness has already started. In honor of Coach Calipari’s fantastic coaching job on Tuesday night, today’s soundtrack channels the thoughts of Wildcat fans as they get to watch the rest of the tournament. Hey… you think they’ll have time to join our Bracket Challenge?
