Devin Smith Is Projected As a First Round NFL Selection

DevinSmithWisconsin

Devin Smith finished the season with a team high 931 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns and is now being considered a first round pick in the Spring NFL draft. Always the big player receiver, he really caught fire against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship, catching 3 touchdowns on 4 passes for 137 yards. Cardale Jones was starting for the first time and having Smith out there catching big touchdowns, made his work a lot easier. Smith is now at the NFL combine and is having a hard time believing how high he has moved up the board for a number of teams.

Tony Alford Sees Opportunity At Ohio State

TonyAlford

Tony Alford saw the opportunity at Ohio State to develop from a running backs coach into a head coach under Urban Meyer, and that is one reason he took the running backs coach position with the Buckeyes. A Notre Dame RBs coach the last six years, Alford is taking over the OSU job today after Stan Drayton moved onto the NFL. Also a recruiting coordinator for the Fighting Irish, the Colorado State running back turned coach, hopes to learn under Meyer and develop into a head coach. His recruiting skills led Notre Dame to have the 6th best recruiting class in the country this year.

DamonArnette

Florida St Thomas Aquinas recruit Damon Arnette was committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks before an official visit to Columbus this past weekend. After the visit the defensive back switched from SC to Ohio State and is ready to sign with the Buckeyes on Wednesday, National Signing Day. Minutes after the visit he still favored South Carolina but over the next two days he made the decision that OSU was a better place for him to be. Michigan finished 3rd, much better than their season in the Big Ten.

Cardale Jones Had the Best Three Games He’ll Ever Have

Cardale Jones took the responsible route this week when he declared that he would return to Ohio State instead of taking advantage of his great play for the final three games of the season and entering the NFL draft. Beating Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship, beating Alabama and then winning the National Title against Oregon is a three game run that will more than likely not happen for another OSU quarterback any time soon. But Cardale valued his education and the opportunity to compete for the starting position this coming season. He began 2014 as the third string quarterback before Braxton Miller and JT Barrett were unable to play due to injury.

Ohio State and Beating the Oregon Ducks

OhioStateOregon

Ohio State has a good chance to beat the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship game Monday night for a number of reasons. Their game plan is capable to scoring on any team, their defensive line is capable of stopping the run, they can control the speed of the game, their coaching is outstanding, and they seem to be the team of destiny this year.

Urban Meyer has been in the program with the same offensive and many of the same defensive coaches for 3 years now. They know how they want to stop teams and they know how to score on teams. Oregon is capable of scoring a lot of points but so are the Buckeyes. Tom Herman’s last game with the team should be a great offensive display utilizing all the weapons they have put together recruiting kids from across the country. For the last two years they have put up 45+ points a game and over 510 yards, all built around what their quarterbacks can do. The plays are selective after much debate with all the coaches for that squad involved. And the results have been great. The basic approach is a power run game with spread were teams after defend the entire field.

Melvin Gordon Has Led Wisconsin To The Championship Game

Wisconsin Iowa Football

Melvin Gordon is a big reason Wisconsin is in the Big Ten Championship game this coming Saturday with a Big Ten leading 2260 yards and 29 touchdowns. They will play Ohio State Saturday at 7pm. He proved that he can run over some of the best defenses in the country when he put up 7 big runs against Nebraska just last month.

His long strides and speed make him difficult to catch once he gets beyond the line of scrimmage. His yards and touchdown totals have put him in position to win the Heisman Trophy at the end of the season if everything goes well.
