    LB Marcus Freeman (official thread)

    Freeman seemed to play quite a bit in the second half. I don't think it was due to injury (hope it wasn't). Could be a sign he's really coming along.

    maybe the coaching staff is tired of watching schlegal attempt to make a half-assed arm tackle right before he gets pancaked?

    JT mentioned on his call in show that Freeman was really progressing and that his playing time would increase.

    Lets hope Hobbler is coming along as well so that OSU gets some good depth at that position.
    Marcus is a good one.

    Not contradicting you JimOtis4heisman, just adding, but anytime you have LB's in coverage on a good WR, without help, its a mismatch. Also when the D-line doesn't pressure the QB, that leads to WR's having all day to come back to the QB for those dink and dunk routes. On the shorts routes the Lb's are doing ok under these circumstances. Freeman has been doing well and coming up to speed this year in practice and earned the right to get some playing time; more so than the Lb's getting beat on coverage.

    As long as we keep playing that soft zone and giving the recievers a 12 to 15 yard cushin, then you can expect plenty of passing yards against not only the linebackers but OSU period. The Tressel approach of keeping the play in front of you and not giving up the home run just AIN'T working. Other coaches are saying you gimme and I takie. Face it we do not have last years DL and probably won't have for quite awhile (if ever). It's time to gamble a little on D.

    I feel your pain with the DB's. I like an agressive "man" coverage myself but with all the changes due to injuries at the DB's positions the coaches played it close to the vest. Yes your right though, sometime down the road OSU has to let the Db's get more aggressive.
    As for the D-line, I am more optimistic and I think they will be a much improved unit; especially with all these new GREAT recruits OSU has gotten at D-line recently.

    I remember reading an article from the Dspatch talking about how Dantonio liked Fox. He said that it did not matter if WRs caught the ball, just as long as they are in front of the DBs. That is what we are still getting. Does anyone else see a problem here?

    I personally love the way our secondary has played this year...especially with all the injuries. We are near the bottom in the Big 10 in sacks. When you put little pressure on the opposing QB, that puts TONS of pressure on your secondary. They've handled it about as well as one could hope IMHO.

    Freeman is going to be a stud. My cousin who is the head scout for the Jacksonville Jaguars was in Columbus to watch last years seniors work out. While he was there Freeman was working out, and my cousin came away not impressed by the seniors but by Freeman. He didnt comment alot on Freeman but said, "He's going to be a good one", with a huge smile on his face.
  14. i agree 100% i was saying, he look better in coverage then our other lbs?

    Freeman is going to be a good one, I saw him play in the Army All Star game last year and I thought he stood out, its obvious the kid has some skills, lets hope he continues to develop and keeps his head on straight.
