Why Not A Schiano Man?

February 24th, 2018

Ohio State DE Sam Hubbard.

Remember back in the Summer of 2017, former Bucs commander Greg Schiano let loose with a howler claiming his defensive line at Ohio State is the most talented he ever coached?

And that included having Gerald McCoy and Michael Bennett on a defensive line with Tampa Bay?

(Research shows Schiano, now the defensive coordinator with the Buckeyes, if he was off base, he wasn’t by much.)

Well, since Schiano seemed to have a clue what he was doing with the Bucs defense, why not enlist one of those studs he had in Columbus? Joe is referring to defensive end Sam Hubbard. The junior never missed a game with Ohio State and finished 2017 with 7.5 sacks. Below is Dane Brugler’s analysis of Hubbard for DraftScout.com

Although his tape doesn’t show a difference-maker, Hubbard is the type of competitor who wants to be great and offers the requisite athleticism and smarts that the NFL covets. The word safe is dangerous when discussing draft picks, but safe is appropriate for Hubbard with his well-rounded skill-set, which should make him a reliable, long-term starter.

It seems Hubbard’s two greatest qualities are athleticism and intelligence. That just might be what Bucs defensive line coach Brentson Buckner wants. A good coach can do a lot with a guy who has a brain and a body to match it.

Hey, Ohio State has produced good defensive ends of late. And if Schiano was right about how talented his defensive line was with the Buckeyes, then why not take a shot at Hubbard?

It doesn’t appear Hubbard is targeted (as of this date) to be a high first round draft pick. So maybe the Bucs could swindle a deal with a quarterback-hungry team, trade down and grab him?

    Anyone else ever wonder if the Bucs would be better off if Schiano had not been run out of town by the media ?…

  2. tmaxcon Says:


    Schiano was ran out of town by cancer93, vjax and the rest of the soft arse snowflake players who could not stand being held accountable. Glazers care far more about feelings than resdults thus 16 yeasrs without a single meaningful win

  3. AlteredEgo Says:

    “Schiano was ran out of town by cancer93, vjax and the rest of the soft arse “……yes that happened after the relentless bashing by the local media because Schiano slighted them…..

  4. The Buc Realist Says:


    But you would still have talk show host dominik which no coach could succeed under, and their lies the problem!!!!!!

    The funny thing was that Coach Schiano has been right on almost everything and the local media still won’t acknowledge it!!!!!!!!!!! Coach Schiano needs to be touted as a hero in this area, for cleaning up the garbage from rah/talk show host 3 year bachelor party, to taking out and exposing jfro-6pak!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    Watched a lot of Ohio State and Hubbard. Makes a big play just about once a game.

  6. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    *almost not about

  7. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    I said we need this guy last week. Way to go, Joe!

  8. K_Bassuka Says:

    Schiano is right about nothing, gee. Why does Joe keeps on bringing all this nightmares back to life? As for Hubbard goes, I like him but definitely not at 7.

  9. Jeagan1999 Says:

    I like this kid too! If Chubb isn’t there at 7, move down with someone who wants one of the QB’s, get and extra 2nd rounder, and get a guy like Hubbard, plus Sony Michel and another Guard or Tackle. Win-Win.

  10. Eric Says:

    When you start longing for the Schiano era….

  11. JonBuc Says:

    Seeings how Shiano was a “Sandusky Man”…I neither long for him of his era.

  12. Pelbuc Says:

    If Chubb and Nelson are off the board, Bucs need to trade down and get more bodies on defense. They’ll be plenty of Dline men and RBs available. Buckner needs to mold the new guys to keep them away from the softening effects of cancer93.

  13. johnnybuc Says:

    not going to be a big sack guy in the league so not exactly the type of player we’re looking for

  14. DoNUTS Says:

    He went to the right college OSU and high school (Moeller). Moeller has produced some very good NFL talent. I like that he is 6-4 but he seems a bit light/265; fixable. We need an edge rush bad. #Chubb_bandwagon

  15. tmaxcon Says:


    Yet you probably worship pedophile supporting cancer93 and his Michael Jackson tribute. Comparing schiano with Sandusky is a big reach.

  16. Not there yet Says:

    Hell no I don’t wonder what it’s like if schiano was still around. Ok so the defense was good but everything else was bad including his coaching. The glazers replaced him quick and I’m glad they did…. Mr Bowers can be a double digits sack guy yeah right give me a break. He’s the one that got rid of Bennett why would anyone think about him except you

  17. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    Omg can we please ban these trolls. They don’t contribute anything to the conversation.

  18. Cover Deuce Says:

    Schiano was spectacularly bad at being a head coach. No equivocation, no hedging – he deserved to lose his job. Maybe he’s learned and figured out how to not be a megalomaniacal $h*thead, but he was not mature enough to handle the spotlight when he was here.

  19. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Coach Toes On The Line was a Big Time Jack Ass!…and he was a …moderation…moderation!

  20. DanBucsFan Says:

    Damn tmaxon.. Calling 93 a pedophile, is a little much even for you buddy.

  21. DanBucsFan Says:

    I could see Hubbard in the De rotation. I wouldn’t be mad if he was picked. Hell im going into free agency\ draft ready to welcome any additions made.

  22. tmaxcon Says:


    Reading comprehension is key… never called the loser a pedophile…. simply stated he supports known pedophiles with his Michael Jackson tribute….

  23. JonBuc Says:

    TBagCon sez:

    Whoa TBag! I must admit I’m closer to your way off thinking regarding McCoy than the fanboys. Shiano ( allegedly ) turned a blind eye to Sandusky’s antics…so much so that the backlash cost him the Tennessee gig. Perception became reality. I’m a fan of your early retirement lifestyle in the Rockies…so sorry my anti-Shiano post set you sideways.

  24. DanBucsFan Says:


    Fair enought, I stand corrected. Was just waking up and didn’t read it right, last night was a long one lol.

  25. Pa Privateer Says:

    Sam Hubbard People!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not Schiano BACK ON TOPIC

    I approve Sam Hubbard being a Buc. Take him in round 2. All 3 of the DEs from Ohio State will play in the NFL.

    In a perfect world Chubb is there.

    I will settle for Vea at #7.

    I dream of trading down and for an additional couple picks. If that happens, we can easily pick of Hubbard, RB and a CB,

  26. Mr Ed Says:

    Schiano, research shows, was a ninny in the NFL and his defense stunk. Stopped the run, not the pass. Look it up Joe.

  27. Reach87 Says:

    Not a bad idea to look at this guy for a third pick if the DT from Stanford is gone. Go Bucs!

  28. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Excuse me guys. Schiano claimed an NFL quality D line…and he was also very proud of his back seven…most of them five star recruits.

    Well who was coaching all this “talent” when Mayfield and Oklahoma came to Columbus and just embarrassed Schiano’s defense?

  29. LakeLand Says:

    This guy is a Schiano man? But so was Doug Martin and Mike Glennon. And by the way, the guy that Doug Martin replaced. The guy that Schiano hated, went on to win 3 Super Bowls with other teams.

  30. SOEbuc Says:

    I’ve been saying his name if we were to trade back to #21 and #22 or farther and they still wanted a DE. Only if Chubb and Davenport are off the board of course.

  31. NFLNut Says:

    If we trade down with the Bills for their #21 and #22 he might be an okay pick … I doubt he’s there in the 2nd round though as basically every mock I’ve seen has him going in the 20s of the 1st round

  32. Marc Says:


    We should probably draft this guy if he is available…. or at least a guy who plays his same position.

    -Concerned Bucs fan

  33. SOEbuc Says:

    Who would you consider QB hungry teams behind us and what number in the first round are they Joe?

    GM SOE:

    There are some good looking d-line and secondary that are projected in the first. Trade back from seven for more picks then trade back into the first. If we were to trade down to #20 or below, we could get some nice picks in return. I wouldn’t assume all the good looking CB (Jackson, Ward, Carlton Davis, Hughes) are all gonna go in the top twenty, but you never know. Then trade back in to the 13-16 range and we will have a very likely chance at either Vea/Davenport/D.James while probably not loosing too many later picks in the process and also giving us more options of different positions down farther down the road.

    FA: (Not suggesting all)

    Trumaine Johnson
    Andrew Norwell
    Carlos Hyde
    Justin Pugh
    Malcolm Butler
    Sheldon Richardson
    Ezekial Ansah
    Dontari Poe
    Eric Reid

    *farther down the road

    Schiano was at Penn State when an enormous amount of children were brutally raped. He claims not to have any knowledge of the brutal raping. I call BS. WHY was he not prosecuted? Hmm!

    How many times have YOU changed you JBF.com handle?

    May I suggest your next handle to be “Snowflake Sheep”?

    Seriously, Joe runs a helluva website and it attracts the greatest collection of Bucs Fans I have ever been around. You can take your soft ass attitude and go to pewterrreport or BucsNation, both second and third fiddle to Joe’s.

    If you can’t handle comments, then please do yourself a favor and don’t read them.

    That’s horrible and should have never happened. Schiano was investigated prior to getting the OSU job.

    Schiano is easy to blame bc he doesn’t care about making friends, but rather instilling toughness into a football team.

  38. SOEbuc Says:


    BucsNation is no more

  39. SteveK Says:

    Good riddance. Some of their stuff was ok, but overall meh.

    I really enjoyed going on their site to file them up bc they were some hardcore Freemanites and Lovie Sycophants.

    Thanks for the heads up, SOEBuc!

  40. SteveK Says:

    Rile them up*

  41. loggedontosay Says:


    There is no possible way the enormous amount of children could have been raped without the people approximated to the location not having knowledge that the children are being raped. Schiano invested gated, BS.

  42. NFLNut Says:

    The sickening Penn State situation pales in comparison to the problem in Hollywood … and nobody seems to be doing anything about that and the mainstream media even seems to be covering it up … sick.

  43. SteveK Says:

    Anyone affiliated wi H the travesty at penn state or Hollywood, and if they are guilty of anything should be banned from coaching/NCAA affiliation.

    Hollywood is a mess NFLNut, couldn’t agree more. And it is sad how it is not being brought to justice.

    God bless America, hopefully society has a better year in 2018.

  44. loggedontosay Says:

    I am not going to argue which is worse. I am certainly not going to celebrate the perpetrators.

  45. SteveK Says:

    Good point, logged on today, no measure of worse, just the existence of it is horrible and my thoughts and prayers go out to survivors. As a father, husband, brother, son, friend I find any of that stuff unacceptable.

  46. NFLNut Says:

    Yeah, I wasn’t saying Hollywood is “worse” just that the PSU situation pales in comparison in sheer numbers as Hollywood has been sick since its inception and seems to get worse and worse every year

  47. Rod Munch Says:

    Schiano’s defenses weren’t any good at all. If you think this year’s defense was terrible, well both of Schiano’s defenses gave up more points, and his 2012 squad gave up more yards as well. So I guess when I say the Bucs can’t get worse, I’m wrong.
