GMC: Bucs Would Throttle Ohio State

April 21st, 2015


Gregarious Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, sporting a red wing in his hair these days, isn’t too fond of college football.

GMC was less than enthusiastic when peppered with questions yesterday at One Buc Palace about the much-anticipated NFL draft.

In fact, as rotten as the Bucs were last year: limited run game, inconsistent passing attack, turnover-prone quarterback, offensive line as porous as a funnel, impotent at getting QB pressure from the edge, the Bucs would still tear apart Urban Meyer and his national champion Ohio State Buckeyes, GMC offered.

“The lowest-tiered guy in the NFL is better than the best guy in college,” GMC said. “That’s how the NFL works. You know, people make these comparisons when you see this great college football team it’s like, ‘I bet you they could beat the so-and-so’s of the NFL.’ Not even close. The [NFL team] would beat them by 60.

“The talent level and the skill set is so much higher in the NFL, I don’t think people realize. So when you have a guy that comes in and dominates in his rookie year, that lets you know really how talented that guy really is.”

GMC also seemed to hint that Jameis Winston’s attorney, David Cornwell, was correct recently when he stated no college player is prepared for the NFL, based on GMC’s own experience.

“Nothing prepares you for that,” GMC said. “It’s just like nothing you can do can prepare you for training camp in Tampa. It sucks, but you just attack it full speed and hope you come out alive. That’s what being a top five pick is, man. You attack it full speed and hopefully, when you come out, you see a light at the end of the tunnel. When you come out, you’re still breathing. It’s the same thing with training camp in Tampa.”

    Hey Joe, anyway to change the “red wing” in his hair to a red stripe? Bad mojo for the Lightning bro!

  3. tval Says:

    Dont be dense..they couldnt beat the 2 most physical dlines they played this season.(psu was robbed & vatech).couldnt run at all. Its insulting and thats coming from columbus native

  4. tval Says:

    Evans wld have 500 yds and 4 martin would look like tony dorsett and Mccoy would eat their center for breakfast.

    Off topic can you get someone from the bucs organization to inform ESPN that jeff tedford is no longer our off. Coordinator because Stephen A Smith just told the American public that when wes draft Jameis,Tedfod will be his off coord.

    Can they be anymore clueless????

  6. Celly Says:

    Not even sure why this warrants a post, Joe.

    Any real NFL fan knows that the lowliest NFL team would man handle even the best College football team.

    Now, what would be interesting to watch, instead of the God-awful probowl, would be to see the top NCAA team play against some sort of All-rookie team for the year. Even if its just 7 on 7s.

  7. WalkdaPlank Says:

    A game against the Bucs would make Meyer “sick” again I’m sure.

  8. Patrick in VA Says:

    @Celly – I can’t imagine that they’d be able to pull that off with one side of the ball being paid to be there and the other one not making a dime off of it. Especially if they’re trying not to get hurt before the draft. I’d love to see it but I don’t think it would be as good in real life as on paper

    I doubt the Bucs could beat the ducks last year. Too fast too quick and with that hurry up our d would have looked like fools. Dude we got beat by back-up qbs 3xs you really think we could beat the ducks by 60 points. Silly season indeed.

  10. Iknowmorethanlovie Says:

    Bucs couldn’t score 60 against a highschool team.

  11. Walter Says:


    There’s no way in hell that the ducks would beat the Bucs. Get out of here with that garbage! How many NFL caliber players are on that squad, 5 or 6?? XD what an idiot.

  12. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Of course GMC is correct. Old dudes like me remember the College All Star game played every year in Chicago with the best college players playing against the NFL champs.

    It started in the 30’s and was somewhat competitive, the college all stars won 9 times but as the NFL replaced baseball as the national pastime the NFL just became too dominant. The last college team to win was in 1963. It started growing so lopsided that the game lost interest and there was nothing to gain for the NFL except risk injury. And so as crowds dwindled and ratings dropped the Chicago Charities simply dropped the game in the mid 70’s.

    BTW I remember watching those games as a kid because it was the first football of the year. We always rooted for the underdog college kids but they got creamed every year.

    It’s been a long time ago but I tend to agree with Celly. They were a lot more entertaining than the stupid Pro Bowl. The kids had something to play for and the NFL had pride on the line as well.

  13. WS99 Says:


    How many NFL caliber players are on the bucs? 2-3. Gtfoh we that BS!! 2-14 says it all.

  14. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I get that 2-14 sucks but that record is bad enough without any need to embellish with hyperbole!

    AGAIN…despite Josh the choker McCown…despite blowing up a competent OL for a total disaster…despite losing their OC a week before the season and ending up with an incompetent no talent kid doing the offensive scheming and worse still calling the plays on Sunday….DESPITE all of that..

    The Bucs lost NINE games by six points or less! Two of them in OT. One of them because they couldn’t count to twelve. One of them because a DB dropped a certain INT that would have ended the game…one of them because a TE fumbled a completion setting up the other team for an easy OT kick.

    IF those NINE games were added to the two we won that’s eleven wins.

    Now it’s the freaking NFL and somebody needs to make a play! Our guys did not make the necessary play. But aside from the Atlanta and Ravens butt kicking and the Lions defeat we were competitive. In many cases just ONE play away from victory.

    The OL can’t play any worse. The play calling and offensive schemes will be light years ahead of last season and most importantly according to the posters on this board Fameis is the black Tom Brady, the next coming of six SB appearances and 4 wins.

    Brady won 11 games the first year he started. There is absolutely no reason we can’t expect 10 from Fameis in our crapola division with our weak schedule. Remember the weak schedule was helpful to Rah’s 10 win season.

    You can’t be serious. You MUST be trolling. There’s no way that you actually believe that a college football team could beat a professional football team, regardless of how bad the NFL teams record is. NFL Football is a completely different animal.

  16. port richey george Says:

    ohio state’s o-line was way better than the bucs.

    university of south florida (usf) had a better o-line than the bucs…

    Carrollwood highschool’s o-line was almost as good as the bucs.

  17. WS99 Says:

    I think jimmy johnsons Miami hurricane teams could have beat the worst NFL teams those years too. Mike Tyson was knocking grown men out at 19, in seconds. It’s easy to make a blanket statement that the best college player is worse than the worst NFL player but it simply is not true.

    Would you take mike Evans or Russell Shepard? Jake Matthew or oneil cousins? We were the worst team in the worst division so it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility that OSU would have at least competed. Furthermore, I think it says more about the coaches than the players.

    Just focus on beating the saints Falcons and panthers by 1 point. Let’s start there.

  18. Celly Says:

    Wow, i leave for lunch and can’t believe this “debate” is still going on.


    At the end of the day we’re talking about GROWN MEN vs COLLEGE PLAYERS.

  19. Buccfan37 Says:

    StPeteBucsFan… you beat me to it, I too remember those old college vs pro games. Damn, you are old, only as old as you feel.

  20. miken Says:

    I think we win at least 11 games last year if we play all college teams.

  21. Ray Rice Says:

    Hey Aunt Geraldine,

    If college players are that inferior how is it that you got manhandled by rookie OL that weren’t even top tier at their position in college?

  22. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    only as old as you feel.

    Amen to that brotha. And I feel great. Still able to take spinning classes with the young hotties and pump iron. I do not lift heavy anymore but I still get the endorphin rush and enjoy the gym.

    Life is great at 67!!! I’m a very fortunate guy and I only wish that luck on everybody here! And I certainly wish it on our Buccos!
