but they're good kids too. they make the right decisions. they're hungry. they're wanting to prove themselves. he said it's been a real joy over the first nine months of his tenure here at ohio state. >> dave: he worked for us the last couple years. wanted to get back into coaching. that pass is incomplete, intended for lucas. nigel carter who is a little further down field. urban meyer and greg sheano have been friends for 20 years. urban meyer said i rarely hire friends, usually i hire guys that i don't know. i remember sitting on a plane with him in 2011 and he was watching iowa state film. he said there's a coach named tom herman. two times he's hired close friends to be on his staff. >> greg: he's such a good coach.
>> dave: wilson dragged down on the punt return at the 16 yard line. here's cassidy in the studio. >> another crazy ending for navy taking on uconn. they get stuck, no timeouts. they can't stop the clock and they don't hustle to get a play off. time runs out on them. look, 8 seconds to go. navy holds on for the 28-24 win. dave, greg, tom, wow. >> dave: crazy finishes today, that and the controversial ending at oklahoma state. >> greg: coming into the week we were saying there's no good matchups. college football always delivers. >> dave: it doesn't matter if there's six games involving ranked teams or none like this week. we're talking about addazio and tom herman. here are the other notable coaches that were assistants
under urban meyer. charlie strong was with him at florida. kyle whittingham at utah. >> greg: dan mullin, success at mississippi state. steve addazio, the defense has been good, they have to find stability on offense. of course the hottest name in college football, tom herman, is doing a phenomenal job at houston. >> dave: barrett's pass broken up. incomplete. keanu hill got there early. >> referee: pass interference defense number one, ball will be placed at the spot of the foul. automatic first down. >> tom: the one come denominator of guys that have gone on to
have success is that philosophical process that they've brought with them and they carry it over and they've applied. as an assistant coach working under somebody that's had success, what works, doesn't work and how to apply it with your own personality at the next stop. you've got to have resources and hopefully take the right job but that's why there's a lineage of success with guys that have come off of urban meyer's staff. >> dave: weber straight ahead. powers past the 40 yard line to the 42 for 17 yards. >> greg: lugs, when we're at practice watching urban meyer work, seeing how organized they are, seeing the tempo with which they practice, seeing how many guys they're rotating in, it's really phenomenal to see how he manages his team, especially in the week leading up to a game like this. >> dave: j.t. barrett here
checking at the line of scrimmage. >> tom: interesting that they're not just running plays here, guys. >> dave: 24-point lead, take a little time off the clock, shorten the game. here's weber. boy, does he look good. jeremy smith on the stop. >> greg: a lot of people are probably asking, tulsa's offense is struggling. how much longer are you going to keep barrett in there. you have to think about who they play next week. this offense has looked out of sync at times tonight. they need this offense feeling confident knowing that they travel to norman next week to take on an oklahoma team that's reeling from the loss last week and ready to right the wrongs. >> dave: barrett has samuel open. he's knocked down to the 28.
>> tom: greg, i want to tell you about samuel from my perspective. i was wrong on him. came out of a little high school in new york, level of competition wasn't great. played a lot of different positions so it was tough to see where he would settle in. at times he was a bit of an upright runner. you could tell he was talented. wasn't quite sure how quickly he would adapt and make the jump. he has exploded. i think he's the next percy harvin type guy in this offense. >> dave: barrett on first down. going for samuel. what a catch. samuel down at the one yard line. >> greg: unbelievable concentration. we've been talking about how versatile curtis samuel is. he's a running back to a certain extent going up and making a play like that. you know he plays wide receiver, too, but when number 4 is on the field, the defense better locate
him because he's getting the ball. >> dave: weber with his first collegiate touchdown! weber said last week that despite the 136 rushing yards in his first career start he was ticked at himself that he didn't get into the end zone. they gave it to him here on first and goal. he punches it in. it's a rout. 34-3. in organic chemistry class earlier this month, a student took a paper airplane and made it into a basket, so we decided we would try to throw a football and make it into a basket. by the way, all those students
got an a for that. all we get is to sit here and praise greg mcelroy for his accuracy. that's all you get, hey, you move it closer for me. >> greg: i get lucky. >> tom: the wind was against you. we put it right where you threw it and yet you landed a little short. what was going on there? was it a psychological thing. >> dave: could you hand me my pen. i can't move my right arm. >> greg: i'm telling you, lugs, i know you're sore from throwing the football yesterday. we got a little competitive. >> tom: i ain't sore. >> dave: what was in picture with all of tom's throws that were wide left and ten yards short. greg actually made two more, put them in the bucket. >> greg: see, i'm done.
that's it. >> dave: i was holding back a little bit. >> greg: that's what it is. lugs and i both played quarterback, and you didn't want to show us up. you're being a good friend and make sure we feel confident. >> tom: dave, i'm going to come out and say it. we have to have better toughness out of you. >> dave: the job of a play-by-play guy is to make the analyst look good. i staged that very well for you guys and our camera crew. first of all, how come i didn't have the professor in college who gave the entire class an a when one random kid could throw a paper airplane into a trash can. >> greg: that's very impressive. >> dave: evans, has a completion. lucas is wrapped up. nice tackle by chris worley. time ticks away at the end of the third. this game was tied at three after one. it was 6-3 late second quarter, and then dane evans throws back-to-back interception returns for touchdowns. game over.
carter couldn't hang on. third down. >> greg: it's so tough to go against a defense like this. they make you pay for every mistake. if a throw is just a little off, they're going to knock it down. if you make a wrong decision, they're going to intercept it. if they intercept it, they might just take it to the house. in six quarters this team has as many pick sixes as they've had all of 2015 and that was a pretty dang good secondary for the buckeyes. >> dave: that's a great stat. third and eight. evans going deep. it's underthrown. picked again. gareon conley with ohio state's
fourth interception of dane evans. >> greg: dane evans has had better days. this one just a little underthrown. it happens. even the best players in the world underthrow the football. he tried to give his guy a chance. the receiver, justin hobbs, didn't recognize it quick enough and a great job by gareon conley going up, high pointing the football and making a play. it happens. he's got to learn from it. take the next step. he had a great game in week one. i imagine he'll have a lot more good games than bad games throughout the rest of his senior year. >> dave: you think tulsa is right behind houston? >> greg: very good, stout at the line of scrimmage, veteran defense, senior leadership at quarterback. he struggled today but a lot of people will struggle against this ohio state defense. >> dave: penalty flag down as
weber is wrapped up. distant second behind houston. houston is one of the best teams in the country. cincinnati with a big win today. >> tom: they throttled purdue. >> referee: holding offense number 74. ten yard penalty from the spot of the foul. replay first down. because the quarterback ended on an accepted penalty we will have one untimed down. >> dave: this is a legal untimed down, different from the central michigan game. we couldn't hear dave, we saw dave, our rules expert on television. i wanted to sit back and listen to him break that down as to what took place at the end of the game at oklahoma state. oklahoma state turned it over on downs with no time left, they got an untimed down and central michigan ended up winning. >> greg: still have to defend the hail mary, regardless of untimed down or not. >> dave: true.
weber up the gut. he's to the 31. now that's the end of the third quarter with ohio state leading 34-3. we'll return after this message and a word from our abc stations. when you run your own restaurant, every night is opening night. coors light. whatever your mountain, climb on. soon, she'll type the bestr essays in the entire 8th grade.

>> dave: welcome back to abc college football presented by walmart. it's turned into a blowout here in columbus, but many of the fans sticking around. that guy stays for anything. the guy with the painted head, he's here every ohio state game. it doesn't matter whether it's ten below or 85 like it was today with 80% humidity. a weather delay of over an hour. j.t. barrett takes off and gets to about the 38 yard line. >> greg: they love their buckeyes, man. they love their buckeyes here in ohio. right there. he's always there as well.
>> dave: urban meyer told us, guys, that this team reminds him of the 2014 national championship team in this respect, that they're young and they're going to get better as the season goes along. right now do you see this as a national title contender or do you think it's going to take time before we can answer that? >> greg: absolutely they're a national title contender, without a doubt. they're outstanding at quarterback. they're really good along the defensive line, exceptional in the secondary. the only thing they need to improve upon is along the offensive line. they were good last week. they've been, i think, exposed a little bit today with some of the speed the power rushes but that will be addressed i'm assure you. this team with the schedule they play and the way it lays out, they're going to be a handful for everybody nationally. >> dave: they have some very tough road games, one in
particular that looks a lot tougher. the punter got run into, they didn't throw a flag. great punt by johnson. the buckeyes are down there and they keep it from going into the end zone. the officials must have felt incidental contact but usually you get a running into the kicker call. trevis gipson. >> greg: he hits the ball. how often do you see a punter flop, jump backwards. a lot of kickers naturally have some soccer background. you do occasionally see some flopping going on. >> dave: there was no flop and no flag believe it or not.

abc. not only is it a big stadium but a big game for the vols. they did not play well last week, should have lost to appalachian state, fumbled on the goal line and it was recovered for a touchdown. the vols won it in o.t. >> greg: when there's a chance to give a punter some love, i'm going to do it. cameron johnson gets hit as he's punting it, stands his ground, says i'm right here, come and get it. the punter having a little attitude. >> tom: got to win the locker room, greg. >> greg: i bet he won some guys over right there. >> dave: what we didn't show you, he doesn't mind almost getting his head knocked off but he doesn't want to get his hair wet so he gets on the phone here and he ducks underneath to stay dry. >> tom: he needs to come and talk to me. i'll get his coif situated.
>> dave: third and four for tulsa. dane evans has thrown for just 94 yards and four interceptions. we haven't seen a lot of tulsa's punter because there have been so many turnovers by the gold hurricane. that pass behind the intended receiver, incomplete, fourth down. now we'll see the tulsa punter, dalton parks. >> greg: lugs taking it in. you can tell the humidity, got foggy on the glasses. wipe them off. there you go. >> dave: i'm impressed that you didn't change your shirt. urban meyer had to get three towels. >> tom: hey, i'm lucky i finished my carrots so i can use this baggy to protect our hardware. >> dave: always looking out for the interests of the company. we appreciate that, tom. >> tom: thank you.
>> dave: here's parks with a low liner but a deep kick. wilson on the return. he's to the 28 yard line. we talked about the talent of curtis samuel. sometimes you can sleep on dontre wilson who was bothered by an injury for a good part of last year. he's a play maker. >> greg: it starts with the kick. not a good hang time right there from dalton parks. it allows wilson way so much room. the gunners had no chance. open field, he's going to have a very difficult time bringing him down. curtis samuel and dontre wilson are the two best play makers on this football team. any way you can get the ball in their hands if you're the offensive coordinator you got to figure out how to dio it. they're both on the field right now. >> dave: first down for ohio state at the 28 yard line with a
31-point lead. barrett pulls it back. dump it off to wilson in space. a beautiful cut and spin. down to the ten yard line. what a move by dontre wilson. >> greg: this might look a little familiar, buckeyes fans. remember braxton miller's spin move against virginia tech? that's the circle button if you're playing play station. wow. good luck tackling that. >> dave: as a millennial, you would know that. >> greg: i would. i played some video games in my day, i can assure you. v button on xbox. >> dave: first and goal for ohio state. down to about the five is samuel. surprised the starters are still in or is this a product of we
got oklahoma next week, our starting group has not been in sync so i'm going to let these guys continue to get some reps? >> greg: they've played poorly today, been inconsistent. as a coach you want your offense to go into a big game feeling good about themselves. getting a touchdown here, i would imagine that might be the exclamation point for this starting offense for the buckeyes. >> tom: remarkably, they've executed in the worst conditions. >> dave: they got better after the weather delay. >> greg: sure did. >> dave: touchdown for j.t. barrett. that's his second one today. his ninth overall touchdown this season. >> greg: good job on the zone read by j.t. barrett. seeing disappearance, seeing green grass, keeping the football, saying it's my
touchdown. give it to me. >> dave: you think he's the second best quarterback in college football and he's off to a great start here in 2016. >> greg: no doubt about it. it's all about him here in columbus. doesn't hurt when you're throwing to a guy like dontre wilson and he can press the b button. j.t. barrett is loving it. big lead buckeyes. ♪ ♪ ♪ second best quarterback in big lead buckeyes.

>> dave: still raining here in columbus. we had about an hour lightning delay earlier. here's bishop louis on the return for tulsa. he's in deep trouble. brought down at the 15 yard line. philip montgomery is in his second year as a head coach at tulsa. he was with art briles in many stops, most recently baylor. as we're talking about this, we should note, montgomery was not called by baylor, by the ncaa, by anybody in connection at all with the sexual assault scandal at baylor. let's get that out of the way. we're talking about art briles. greg and tom, your reaction as you saw tom rinaldi in that interview with briles? >> greg: it felt genuine. his apology looked sincere. however if i'm a division one athletic director, there's no way i'd hire him knowing what happened under his watch. too many mistakes were made and i can't justify to the boosters,
to the alumni, to my president 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 program whether it's in business 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
