that he's alleviated those concerns. he's a great coach, but i don't think he's going to have a job any time soon in college football. >> dave: evans dumps it off to about the 21 yard line to nigel carter. are you on the same page as greg, tom? >> tom: i am. i felt he was sincere in the interview that was conducted. i also feel like in today's society when you're the head man, you are in charge. you are accountable for your progra in any walk of life. it's your responsibility. this wasn't something to do with ncaa infractions. it wasn't something to do with substance abuse. this was something to do with the well-being of the citizens of our culture and our society. and that in and of itself -- and i would agree with greg here. forget about the boosters and
if somebody were to acquire about hiring him, how would you get anybody to sign off on it right now? i don't think it's possible. >> dave: evans throws and it's broken up. i agree, it's something you can't come back from. when you enable criminal activity to that degree, allowing it to go on and then again to me it didn't seem contrite. i can't judge the man's heart or sincerity but i didn't hear a lot of reasons as to why he was that it happened, do you think there's a chance he gets hired at some point or are you saying he's never going to get hired as a head coach again? >> greg: not as a head coach in the college football world. too many mistakes were made under his leadership. there's no way an athletic director, a decision maker at a division one university can justify bringing him on board to be a part of their organization, not with the mistakes that he made and the things he seemed to

and a bad decision in the weather. finally agareon conley here in the second half. how about this kid, malik hooker, three interceptions already in two games. his first career start was last week. it's a lot of people's first career start on this ohio state team with only a handful of seniors that are going to play this year. >> greg: he's going to play football for a very long time. >> dave: curtis samuel on the inside pitch and he gets a few yards. our pick life game summary, talked about the four interceptions. j.t. barrett after struggling for most of the first half bouncing back here in the second half with some decent second half numbers. >> greg: it's all about turnovers. it goes to show you this ohio state team, their defense, i
drafted and are making millions of dollars in the nfl right now, joey bosa, you name it. they're not going to miss a beat on defense. they're too talented, recruited too well, the culture is clearly established. >> dave: first down catch by samuel. >> tom: to further that point, greg, with mike weber we talked about how a year ago he was out of shape, he was overweight. when the caliber of player on this roste competition, the coaches are no longer the motivating factor. the players realizing he better fall in line or he's not going to be in the mix. mike weber realized as a player if he didn't get it going, there's too many good players and he's never going to see the field. >> dave: here's weber and down to the 31 yard line. here are the nfl players from ohio state this year and just
year's draft. five taken in the first round, two guys in the top four, three in the top ten. >> greg: it's incredible how talented they were the last couple of years. you shake your head looking at the roster. it's not like these guys are going to play a few years. we're talking about guys that could have ten-year careers, all of them. so well coached, so well prepared. obviously so incredibly good because of the here in columbus. >> dave: barrett steps up, brought down at the 28 yard line. >> tom: they got to get him out of the game. >> greg: i was about to say the same thing. he's taken a couple of hits. j.t. barrett is the heart and soul of this team. he might not be their most explosive player right now. i think that honor would go to curtis samuel and dontre wilson. but you have a guy that's backing him up in joe burrow that hasn't played a lot.
ready. i don't really understand why he's still in the game. i understand getting him feeling good but joe burrow needs some reps, too. >> tom: the long term of this season is dependent upon number 16. >> dave: they'll keep it on the ground on third down. weber claimed he wasn't down but they rule him down at the 26. it's fourth down. no sign of the field goal team at this point. >> greg: four down territory all the way, fourth and two, you got your whole playbook if you're ed warner. >> dave: they're at oklahoma next week. they go to wisconsin, to penn state and to michigan state. that was the one loss last year that derailed their national title hopes was here against michigan state. they went back and went the next week up to michigan and won. the wolverines will be here
timeout here by ohio state. 6:34 to play in the fourth. the buckeyes leading 41-3. hey dad. hey sweetie, how was your first week? long. it'll get better. i'm at the edward jones office, like sue suggested. thanks for doing this, dad. so i thought it might be time to talk about a financial strategy. (laughing) you mean pay him back? knowing your future is about more than just you. your long-term goals... multiplied by 13,000 financial advisors. it's a big deal. and it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. the home depot is pouring more into paint. with fade resistance, scuff resistance, even one coat coverage. this is the next generation of painting. best paints. best brands. now even lower prices. the home depot. more saving. more doing.

>> dave: welcome back to abc college football presented by walmart. ohio state has scored the last 38 points since the second quarter when this game was tied. turnovers the story. on offense it's been j.t. barrett. also curtis samuel who has 140 yards of total offense, 78 rushing, 62 fourth and two, the buckeyes going for it. here's dontre wilson getting the first down. knocked out of bounds inside the ten. here's cassidy hubbarth in the studio. >> thanks, dave. number 11 texas taking on u
>> dave: greg and lugs, are you buying texas yet? >> greg: yes. i bought them on monday with the performance that they showed. love their run pass options at quarterback. i think they're going to be a factor in the big 12. >> dave: touchdown for dontre wilson. going to say it's not like charlie strong didn't win a big game last year. they beat oklahoma earlier in the year. >> greg: and beat baylor at the end of the so they had moments last year. >> tom: dave, you and i know full well because we've had them the last couple of years that every time we came off the broadcast we said, man, if that team gets a quarterback, look out. >> dave: yep. >> tom: and they were my preseason pick. >> dave: texas is your preseason pick? >> tom: they were. check the tape. >> dave: to win the big 12? >> tom: to win the big 12. >> greg: they not just found one
>> tom: yeah. no doubt. >> dave: guys, they talked about this with charlie strong using the two quarterbacks and the tie-in here is obvious with urban meyer, with chris leak and tim tebow. can it work an entire season in 2016? >> greg: i'm a quarterback and i don't like seeing two quarterback systems. very honest. i think it's very difficult to get in a rhythm when you come off the field in favor of somebody else. if the roles are defined and you're tyrone s on the field, you're not going to throw it, lugs, and if the roles are defined and you're rooting for the guy as he goes on in favor of some of your playing time. >> tom: swoops can clearly do things that shane cannot and they masterfully worked that last week. what they've got to avoid is doing what they did a year ago. you had that big win versus oklahoma and then struggled down the line and you're not able to get it done.
process that has to happen with texas. i think they have a chance to be a very good football team. >> dave: stumbling to the 20 yard line is jaron anderson. given the skill set you saw an national tv with the throws near the trash can, i think it works. i think it's fine. it's not like the notre dame situation. finally brian kelly picked a guy who you think is a top three quar >> greg: i honestly think he resembles cam newton with his skill set, athleticism, the way he can negotiate in the pocket and his accuracy. tom, i'm telling you, the way he was throwing the football against a well coached texas defense was very impressive. he made that receiving corps so much better than we thought they would be. >> tom: he's clearly poised, got the measurables they're going to want, can make the throws,
i agree, i think that they can build an offense around him. that was a good football team that texas beat. i understand that there are a lot of questions in relationship to how the quarterback usage took place with notre dame and did that hurt them coming out of the first half. but notre dame is still a pretty good football team and i think they're going to get better with kaiser at the helm. >> dave: notre dame and oklahoma are two one loss teams who definitely are not out of it in terms of the playoff. is there anybody else who lost that pass is deflected. a helmet comes off. big hit by smith on keevan lucas. anybody else that lost week one? there are some really good teams that lost or highly ranked teams that lost. >> greg: i wouldn't pick it but i certainly don't think with one loss they're eliminated. lsu, they have to run the table the rest of the way but the sec west in the eyes of many a very
miss as well because the meat remaining on the bone, they still have the opportunity to win huge games against top tier competition. also the teams they lost to, wisconsin and florida state respectively are very highly respected according to the polls. >> dave: tom when you watched lsu is there any reason you say, yes, that's a team that can win a national championship? >> tom: talent-wise, yes, but they're not making the adjustments offensively in order to do it. until that happens, then the answer is no for them right now. they're going to struggle against some teams throughout the sec west. >> dave: evans on third down and seven. it's caught by josh atkinson and pushed out of bounds at the 48 yard line. when ohio state gets the ball back, joe burrow likely will be in. red shirt freshman quarterback. >> greg: lugs, you like him. i know he throws the ball very nicely.
up ahead, i think, in the near future with their third string quarterback as to who might take over for j.t. barrett when he does, in fact, decide to go to the nfl or finish out his eligibility. >> tom: i really like their young quarterback. joe burrow was a kid that they kind of slow played in recruiting. kept bringing him along. he's an in state kid out of athens, ohio. of course dwyane haskins who was committed to maryland for a long steals him and have been pleased with his development. the quarterback position here in good hands. we touched on this earlier, greg, and you referenced it in terms of recruiting that even with the losses they're not going to have a significant dropoff. they have done it at the four most premium positions, quarterback, defensive line, corner and offensive line. that's where championship teams are built from the inside out. >> dave: is there a better head coach for a quarterback than
the success with the different quarterbacks he's had, whether it's alex smith or tim tebow, chris leak, cardale jones, broxtbro braxton miller or j.t. barrett. >> greg: he says what do you do well, how can i make you better with the skill set you have and he creates and crafts an offense around it and that's why quarterbacks have had success in this system and will continue to and helping with the offense. >> dave: fuller couldn't pick it off and there's a penalty marker at the five yard line. 123450. >> referee: pass interference defense number 28, 15-yard penalty from the previous spot. automatic first down. >> dave: you go back to the team two years ago. braxton miller is a starting quarterback in camp.
he's hurt. out for the year. j.t. barrett is thrust into a starting role. they lose at home early in the year to virginia tech. they start rolling. then there's the michigan game. barrett at the end of the game with the game in hand by the way, gets hurt, done. cardale jones comes in. tom and i were here for that game. when jones went in, he did not look good at all. throws way over the guys' heads. people were wondering can they beat wisconsin. they alabama and then beat oregon to win a national title with a third string quarterback. nick bosa with a big play, forcing a fumble and it's recovered by the buckeyes. we talked about nick bosa earlier. josh younger brother of joey. some thing he'll be as good if not better than joey.
very strong. evans drops the football, but if you see a guy like number 97 who's 6'4" and a full 265 pounds, you would probably try to rush your release as well. thus not giving you the grip necessary to throw the football. you mentioned recruiting, lugs. nick bosa on a very deep talented defensive line already making plays upfront for this buckeyes defense. >> tom: top three overall player in the espn 300 last year despit >> dave: mccaul is into the game. he had a receiving touchdown last week. >> tom: he's a true freshman, explosive. a smaller version of curtis samuel. to the recruiting point, the one thing that urban meyer has done a good a job of as anybody in college football is put a fence around their state, keeping the best kids at home but then
fertile recruiting grounds. look at raekwon mcmillan. he's from georgia. von bell from georgia. joey and nick bosa, florida. the list goes on and on and they've done a great job of supplementing their midwest recruiting efforts out of the region. >> greg: it's a brand. i went through the recruiting process ten years ago. >> tom: oh, yeah. >> greg: you identify when you get a letter in the mail from the ohio state un heart starts to beat a little faster. >> dave: you got one? >> greg: i did not. >> dave: how do you know then? >> tom: he heard about it. >> greg: i can tell you from experience when you get recruited by urban meyer and he feels as though you are good enough to play at the top of the game and play and be a part of their team, that certainly makes you feel really special and obviously recruits are taking notice. they've gone to the southeast, to the west, to the northeast.
will continue to be for as long as urban meyer is here in columbus. >> dave: you got a letter from nick saban and that's pretty darn good. burrow on the run. he's to midfield. next week ohio state is at oklahoma. they have a kcouple home games and back-to-back at wisconsin and penn state. nebraska at home, northwestern home at michigan state november 19th. spartans beat them last year ohio state won there two years ago. >> greg: this is a young football team. very young football team. it's their first road trip. their first start in a hostile environment and oklahoma just completely closed in their south end zone which is going to ' amplify the noise. it will be interesting to see
handles that situation next week. >> dave: ohio state handled adversity here today. the game was tied in the second quarter. the buckeyes win 48-3. up next it's virginia tech and tennessee with 150,000 on hand at bristol motor speedway for a once in a lifetime event. the biggest college football game in terms of attendance that we've seen by far, by 30,000 at least. 48-3 the final score. j.t. barrett with a couple of rushing touchdowns and four interceptions by the buckeye secondary. tom luginbill now with urban meyer. >> tom: coach, the elements got ahold of you today but you seem ted execute at your best after halftime. what was the message following the lackluster first half? >> lackluster on defense, lackluster offense. i was pleased with the way they
the hour delay or whatever it was. we have a lot of respect for our opponent. we got a big one next week. >> tom: young team. you've had two weeks to play a lot of youngsters. how important is that going on the road next week? >> it's important. now they're mature vote raetera. we got to be ready for next week. >> tom: thanks, coach. >> dave: barrett has accounted for nine games. tennessee/virginia tech up next here on abc. for greg mcelroy, tom luginbill, our entire abc crew, i'm dave pasch saying so long from columbus after four and a half hours including an hour-long weather delay. we say good-bye from columbus and send you back to the studio. >> dave, there it is. bristol motor speedway decked
virginia tech and tennessee getting set to play there before 150,000 folks in a couple minutes. stan verrett, mark may, mack brown here to talk about what we just saw with ohio state. 6-3 at one point and 42 unanswered for the buckeyes. impressed? >> struggled on offense, came out the second half as the complete team. as urban said, young teams grow up, going to oklahoma next weekend, a great matchup and a >> maybe they just liked playing in the rain. impressed with their defense they were right on cue. the two touchdowns they scored offensively, stop the run, that's what they did. impressive on the defensive side of the ball. the offensive passing game needs to get better next week. j.t. barrett doesn't throw a touchdown pass in a game like this, they've got to get better in that area. >> those two pick sixes, back breakers for tulsa.
tennessee, joshua dobbs, their offensive not impressive. what do you want to see from him? >> relax and have fun. last year he played well, controlled his football team. last week they were too uptight. >> i want to see his offensive line do a better job of protecting him in the pocket. when he does scramble, they're controlled and designed runs. >> virginia tech, knock off a ranked team in front of a pretty big crowd. >> you're talking about a tennessee team that's working on this for four years, a virginia tech team that's the second game of the new justin fen tay era. it will be a good game, a tough game, a lot of orange but you got to pick tennessee. >> virginia tech is having a so many l-- solid defense. >> it's virginia tech and tennessee p. pre-game rush to get you set
