I felt they had a lot of possession at times but didn’t really penetrate us that much, we defended really well and then went ahead.“The back three were immense today, all of them, especially Boly aside me, he just wins absolutely everything and takes it off people one-v-ones, nobody can get round him. It’s good that we were able to keep the clean sheet.“It was great to get the first league win, especially at home in front of another packed out crowd. It’s nice to get the first win on the board, even though it’s taken a bit longer than we would have expected.“This result has brought us a bit of relief, obviously we would’ve wanted it to come earlier than it has, because the longer that it doesn’t happen you start to get itchy. But I felt we played well today and thoroughly deserved to win.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Tom Herman Gets Involved In Ohio State vs. Michigan Spat, Trashes Jedd Fisch

first_imgTom Herman Haters Gonna Hate photo.Tom Herman Haters Gonna HateTom Herman may now the head coach at Houston, but he certainly hasn’t forgotten his roots with the Ohio State Buckeyes. Friday night, Herman, who coached at OSU under Urban Meyer from 2012 to 2014, came to the defense of his former colleague Zach Smith, who was portrayed negatively in a recent Michigan recruiting pamphlet. He wasn’t messing around either.In the pamphlet, which you can check out here, Michigan lists a number of statistics meant to prove that its assistant coach, Jedd Fisch, is a better alternative to Smith when it comes to player development. Smith responded on Twitter with a number of tweets, trashing the Wolverines program. Herman chimed in with some tweets trashing Fisch. Check this out:Gloves are off. I’d be proud to have @CoachZachSmith coach TD or Maverick.
