Was OSU's Last TD Necessary?

Immediately after the game I ran into an Oregon fan that was ticked off about the Buckeyes last TD.  Then I read a OP-ED by Steve Greenberg of the Chicago Suntimes that brought up the same question, indicating that it was less than sportsmanlike.

Clearing up the National Titles

I did some research on this whole national title question.  ESPN says tOSU has 6 while we claim 8.  So what gives?  Lets take a look at history.  For those that don't know, there are a large number of national title selectors which make it confusing and they still exist today. &n...

College Football: The Power of 4

Fact: The Big 12 has been a chaotic mess since it lost Missouri, Nebraska and Texas A&M.  The subtext of the inaugural College Football Playoff is clear: Through its mouthpiece (the so-called and fundamentally superfluous, “Selection Committee) the Power 4 and its powerful partner, ESP...

WE WON THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. It is a great feeling walking around knowing that your team took down some of the experts' picks. Also it can finally shut up the crap about O State not belonging in the championship game. freaking bs. And now it is annoying because people are still saying that TCU ...

Sustained Success: Blessing and Curse

I don't think there's any doubt in anyone's mind, after watching what Ohio State did to Oregon last night, that Urban Meyer has laid the groundwork for sustained success. While this doesn't necessarily mean we will experience this same euphoria next year, we should be perennial national contenders f...

Mea Culpa Urban Meyer, Mea Culpa

I am more than happy to eat this crow. It's more delicious than I could have ever expected. Fell free to reign down on me with your "I told you so" comments. I deserve them. After the Virginia Tech loss, I kept dwelling on the facts that Urban Meyer had not defeated a top 15 opponent, had yet to...

Teams of Destiny

As we approach the kickoff for the first championship of the College Football Playoff, the thought has crossed my mind that we are witnessing a true "team of destiny." Every season has a champion, but not every season has a team of destiny. Look at UConn this past season in basketball -- entering Ma...

The Ohio State Effect: Tom Herman

Tom Herman did not have Ohio State like numbers at Iowa State. With the reported hiring of Tim Beck, I posted the offensive stats from Nebraska during Beck's tenure (2010-2014). Some bring up the relevant point that Tom Herman's numbers at Iowa State weren't that impressive and we should ...

The Cutting Edge

My dad wasn’t around.  Pretty common these days when half of all marriages end in divorce, or even more common, the kids come along before the wedding that never happens.  But back in the 1960’s it was a bit of a disgrace that the marriage didn’t work out.  It didn’t matter th...

While I think Eleven Warriors did a fine job summarizing the program options ESPN will be offering Monday night, I urge all Buckeye fans to watch only, the broadcast of the game on ESPN. O.W.N. ESPN means, watch ESPN "only when necessary." After years of relentless bashing and disrespect of Bu...

What are the rules around 20 hours of practice, anyway?

Since Bruce Feldman reported that Ohio State is not bound my the 20-hours of practice rules, there have been questions here at about what that means. The rules are spelled out in NCAA Bylaw 17.1.5 (Daily and Weekly Hour Limitations). During the playing season (when not a vac...

Is the CFP Good for Meyer's Tenure at OSU?

Urban Meyer's stay at Florida was one of tremendous success, which we, Buckeye fans, know all too well. However, it came at great cost to Urban and his family. We now know all of the stories about the damage that he did to himself, physically, mentally, and emotionally, as well as the separation...
