6 Points & the Takeaway from the Orange Bowl

1. I think Fickell is the guy everyone is piling only because he's the face and name we know.  I think for all we know the struggles could very well lie more in the lap of Withers, but we don't know him, the camera never shows him, so we don't blame him.  Fick studied unde...

We have heard this before: "We need to get better"

I went to the game last night and sat very close to the field of play, I have played college level sports, and I will be the first to tell you, we are average at best. The Clemson Defense was flying all over the field as if they knew where to be before they got there, conversely the OSU defense pla...

Thanks to the 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes

I know that it was a tough way for you guys to end the season, but thanks for a great ride.  You followed up an undefeated season with twelve more wins in a row--that just doesn't happen every year--but you guys made it happen.  I can't think of two back to back OSU seasons where...

There Are Many Tigers . . .

When you look at the sports monikers in the world, there are many teams with the sobriquet, Tigers.  Detroit comes to mind--but that's professional baseball. Cincinnati has the Bengals, which is a type of tiger, so you don't confuse them with saber tooths or some other kind of ti...

May the Restless Spirit of Woody . . .

I remember the 1978 Gator Bowl.  I remember a game we threw away--but I remember more the great controversy afterwards.  I remember the unthinkable--Woody Hayes--Coach Woody Hayes--fired.  He didn't resign--Woody didn't quit.  He was not a quitter.  Right or wrong,...

Mack Brown is classy

This is my first blog attempt, so bear with me! Throughout the 16 yeas that Mack Brown coached at Texas, I really knew nothing about him. He was just another coach. He seemed likable so I'd root for Texas when they weren't playing the Bucks. I'm old fashioned, I think when a coach answer...

OSU Biggest Spender in College Football

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'll be interested to hear what others think about OSU's status as the biggest spender per football player at $318,898 on a five year rolling average.  I'm a little conflicted (but not too much; such is the state of CFB today across America) b...

About PSU

I've seen a lot of words written about BOB and PSU these last few days due to the HC's buyout reduction, impending interviews, etc.  I think BOB seems like a decent dude. He said some nice things about the Bucks when we were trapped in the undefeated/outside-looking-in ESPiN narrat...

How Far the Mighty

The Struggle with Expectations

In the wake of the excitement surrounding the recruitment of Kwon and Dixon, I think it's necessary for some of us to take some time to understand the repercussions of this excitement. I understand entirely why we get excited about highly recruited kids picking our school. In a similar...
