    OhioState001 Go Buckeyes!

    I don't see a problem with it either...

    I actually don't ever want to remember any tweet by anybody. That said, I like the confidence and hope that it comes with corresponding accountability. I would very much like to see a hungry, pissed off, focused Buckeye team next year . . . and if this is a starting point:

    Haskins tweeted "January 7, 2019" as soon as the game ended.

    You gave me a teammate, but plural... And I doubt others disagree with Tate
    Why do fans think that kids need to be quiet all the time? There is nothing wrong with being confident, it's why they are Buckeyes, because their confident in their abilities. I'd have more of a problem if he tweeted something only about himself, like: guaranteed I'll he the starter next year

    I honestly don't have an issue with it either. Tate could be everything McSorely and Mayfield try to be. Count this right now as my tip of the hat to Haskins if Tate isn't the starter sometime next year. Tate wins and expects greatness from himself at this level. I know some will argue that it puts a bullseye on our back. I'd argue that it's already there. Has been for a long damn time in fact. Maryland (and others) didn't sink money into their program to beat Michigan.

    lots of confidence from one quarterback who has yet to start a college game and another who has yet to play in a college game...

    If you are on THE Ohio State University football team, a bullseye is already on your back. If you can't take that pressurethen go to UC, Kent st or Akron. Players go to schools like Bama, Clemson, osu, etc because they know that they're good enough, and as fans we should embrace that confidence. That's why I just smiled when Mayfield tried to plant the flag in the shoe, the same way that the UGA player told him to be humble. Tate said nothing selfish or condescending, just that he and his brothers will he playing in the final CFB game next season. Good, he should say, and think that! Every player from very top team thinks they should be there too

    I guess when the coaches seriously consider blowing an entire year of eligibility to put you in THE GAME...confidence happens?

    Or when the coaches have you scout as the opposing team's best players, regardless of position, I think you may be a little confident

    i think most are missing what dre'mont was getting at. he didn't question martell's confidence. he questioned the manner by which martell chose to showcase his confidence. you guys do know that you can be very confident without tweeting, don't you?

    i'll put it another way that some here may understand:

    say you're a junior captain for your high school football team. the season has just ended. you missed the state playoff but still had a very good season. you've played in many tough games and understand firsthand how good the other teams are. after your final game, a freshman who never played a snap all season long goes up to a local reporter and proclaims that the team is going to win the state title next year. it gets published in next day's paper. does the player's confidence bother you or is it how he chose to voice his confidence that bothers you?

    confidence =/= tweeting about confidence

    It it wrong to tweet a purpose or goal? These guys didn't come here to sit at home in January. Did it put any extra pressure on his teammates? I doubt it. They all want to be there too.

    again, i'm just looking at this from the perspective i'd probably have if i were a buckeye upperclassman reading a tweet from a freshman who's never played a single snap of college ball.

    I would love it! And expect that same frosh to bust his ass the next year. You don't have to be an upperclassman to be a vocal leader, that old school mentality is BS. Like I've stated, Tate nor the hypothetical freshman you mentioned said anything about solely themselves, but about confidence in the TEAM. I'm finenwi any frosh or any player for that matter having confidence in his team. I wouldn't want a kid playing or acting scared to voice his mind in my locker room
