walkons shouldn't be playing against ohio state...about half our offensive starters shouldn't be in a power 5 conference. The roster is Frost's fault, he will pay dearly for the attrition that has occurred because of his inconsistency and hubris but talent is, what it is...More concerned with growing a fancy mustache than catching or blocking
Frost's last 3 classes - # of WRs signed vs other big ten west teamsto me, he's an Osborne era type of receiver.. but he also was a Riley recruit.
I never considered Osborne's receivers to be that good. They were decent possession type of receivers, which is not what Scott's offense needs. I don't know if Warner is a good blocker or not, but he's no home run threat. I also just pointed out he is a Riley recruit, so not sure why he is even playing, unless that is the best we got.Don't know what you mean by that. Osborne always had good receivers, and especially good blocking receivers. Warner's blocking and catching ability are extremely overrated.
for sure that is the other half of the equation..And, rewatch that pass by Martinez to Warner, was way too hard and outside. There was no reason for Martinez to get that excited and throw the ball that way. He was wide open and no one around.
I don't think they trust AM to throw deep. I keep going back to that Iowa game last year where they called Luke in for that connection to JD for a touchdown, and that was maybe only a 35 yarder?I wouldn’t be surprised if the Manning saga never materializes for us. As for Betts, sure just throw him deep and see if he can catch it. At least we would be trying to make a play deep. We never even tried today.
you must have missed the Iowa game last year?JD wasn’t a deep threat. And if this offense is ever going to make a big play, we better not have a guy like JD who refuses to block anybody.
The WRs (other than Wandale) were my biggest disappointment. What happened to all the new talent we were supposed to be getting? Why is it that other schools can bring in new true freshman to be star receivers and none of our guys show up? Even the JC star turned into a no show? Really, really disappointing.
It's a bit telling that he was head and shoulders our best WR -- goes to TCU -- and is buried in that program, 5 catches through 4 games.JD wasn’t a deep threat. And if this offense is ever going to make a big play, we better not have a guy like JD who refuses to block anybody.
