“Loves To Laugh When He’s Not Cussing You Out”

February 22nd, 2020

Joe loves to hear what players think of Bucco Bruce Arians.

One prominent Buccaneer shared his insight this week.

Yes, Joe calls Dare Ogunbowale “prominent.” Disagree? Look at how many darn snaps he got last season at running back.

Ogunbowale was asked about Arians on CBS Sports Radio and named a couple of reasons he likes playing for the 67-year-old head coach.

“His attention to detail and then his focus on mentality. Those two things for me,” Ogunbowale said. “He just wants guys that are smart tough and then play fast. And he always says, ‘You can play faster when you’re smart, when you know what you’re doing.'”

The Bucs’ third-down back and special teams captain went on to say Arians got him more focused on being a smart player and it led to him “playing 100 miles an hour and playing with confidence.”

The coach is a fun guy, too.

“He’s a cool guy and he’s funny, loves to laugh when he’s not cussing you out,” Ogunbowale said.

    I was kind of bummed out that I only got to see Ogunbowale’s bush meat shuffle (touchdown celebration) one time this year.

  4. Sport Says:

    So happy we have a true leader in our HC. He has a plan, knows how to execute and get results. If not, you get shipped out. Spence, VH, GMC.

    Who’s next?

    In BA I Trust!

    Bouts of cursing and laughing?????? Sounds like some symptoms of a mental disease!!!!!!!!!!! Ole stale biscuit is around that age!!!!!!!!!! The “real” fans hope that team Glazer notices and will hire some “caretakers” along with those head case, errrrrrr I mean sport psychologist to the overly large staff that is about to outnumber the player roster!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Maybe it would be more cost effective to hire a “real” gm and coaching staff instead of the growing staff that might need extra buses and planes for the ole stale biscuit traveling circus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    go bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Jean Lafitte Says:

    …and when is 67 so old? I get BA has had a few health scares but he claims he’s better now. I truly think when Pagano was battling cancer it might’ve been rough on Arians psyche. I think the realization that he’s older and he no longer felt invincible. As Pagano got better Arians got better as well as he had a chance to reflect on his career while in the broadcast booth. Many coach’s have coached into their 80’s, and I think Arians will be around longer than most expect as long as we don’t run him off. Sadly the wrong call on Jameis could possibly be what ends his career.

    Dare is not a good running back and shouldn’t even be on the field. He needs to get the boot along with Peyton.

    Jameis !
    and those that say he doesn’t have enough time…
    and has to scramble…

    I was somewhat happy with Coach Arians and the staff (specifically Coach Bowles near the end of the season), but I was hoping for a more disciplined team.

  11. Craig Says:

    So there is the rest of the team and then Jameis. RoJo gets benched for missing a block and Jameis gets free passes for throwing away whole games.

    Hope that changed after those last two games, or maybe it can’t change because Licht still rules the roost and Jameis is his guy.

    Doesn’t bode well for those looking for a new hope.

    “Sounds like some symptoms of a mental disease”

    Kind of like… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Craig: I’m including the Jameis interceptions/fumbles/delay of games in the “lack of discipline” category. Do I think Jameis can improve on this in 2020? Yes, I do.

    imagine ole BA with a good GM…..wow

  15. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Damn, CBS sports radio will interview anybody. Must’ve called 50 players before they found one that didn’t hang up

  16. BucHead588 Says:

    Wow some of y’all crazy BA is the Beat Coach we have had in Tampa in a Long Time he Knows what he’s doing y’all Look at our Defense in the 2nd Half of the Season they Played great an Winston cuts
    Down his Ints he’s In MVP talks ya In BA we Trust

  17. Pewter power Says:

    He’s not a very patient coach, the errors wont fly this year and if he is on the verge of another losing season chances are they’ll be some very expensive contracts rising the bench on offense. Guys making big money on the defense produced evry single one, cant say that about the offense

  18. Go Bucs 72 Says:

    It’s nice to have a HC that knows what he’s doing for the first time since Gruden was fired.

    eason behind rivers, or brady, to learn, draft o-line edge rush, rb best available, letting winsome walk gives the team so much options it’s not funny, winsome has proved to me he is not theee one
