2019 Spring Practices, Game, and Tidbits

    Yeah after thinking a little more on it I am also a little more concerned with QB. I think though we just have to accept that we won't be seeing 400 yard passing games this season.

    We also didn't have the majority of our OL and we were going against a very good back 7 with our defense.

    For fields he had a few throws batted which may be an issue for him due to his low release. Also, they went deep too much yesterday and obviously those are low percentage plays too.

    It's undeniable how good fields is running and what I hope is that they give him some early confidence throws each game.

    A little confused why they gave Baldwin 30+ throws and Fields only 12?

    Would also like to join in with those saying Master Teague looked impressive.

    Looking forward to seeing both him and Garrett Wilson (that vertical!) playing in the fall.

    Yeah, a lot of vertical passing.Very few crossing routes, no bubble screens, etc. Some throws were spot on but way to many were way off the mark. Receivers did a great job though getting open and catching the ball. Again, this is Spring Ball and both JF and MB are very young and raw at this point in their careers. They just need more reps and experience and that will come in time.

    buckeyes_rock Great day to be a Buckeye

    If I'm an opposing defense, I'm going to to approach this Buckeye team like teams did with JT...stack the box against the run and dare Fields to throw it. It will be interesting to see how fast #1 can get up to speed with reading a D. Obviously that was a strength for JT, but JT didn't throw a great deep ball which limited the offense. Fields has a bigger arm but expecting him to make all the right reads right off the bat in game 1 is unrealistic. Even if he's a great student of the game, it will take time for him to get comfortable and make those reads. Hopefully the defense steps up early in the season and allows the offense some grace.

    All said, I'm incredibly excited to watch this team develop. I suspect this year's Buckeyes will look way different on both sides of the ball. But I'm expecting a lot of growing pains early on.

    Just watched the game and to be honest it was a bit of a struggle. Not sure there was a whole lot to take away from that. Some good individual performances from Wilson, Teague, Potter, T. Smith.

    Everyone is so concerned with the QB situation but iirc Haskins was 9-19 for 140 yards in last year’s Spring Game...

    Is it too soon to be concerned about Coach Fickell coming into Ohio Stadium against a young QB in week 2?

    LovelandBuckeye If you choose positivity you must first bitch up.

    Yeah, and how did that turn out? We relied on his legs to win all those games.

    Was it too soon for people to worry about playing TCU's defense on the road with a young QB last year?

    When it comes to Buckeye Nation and their Woody-given right to worry, there is no such thing as "too soon, too far fetched or too much."

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    A defense stacking the box against a group of receivers like that and a QB with a better arm that JT? Yes, please. I’m confident that he’ll pick up reading a D pretty quickly.

    My guess is that we’ll see as much RPO as RO this year.
