I started following the - especially recruiting sites - with the recruitment of T. Pryor (I think in 2006). At that time I was of the mind that I wanted um to be undefeated and ranked #1 in the country every time we faced them and a strong um was good for the Buckeyes. Always tried to give um their due until the year 2011. I never heard so much crap about how we were about to be owned by um and the hokester. Delusional um fans were talking about how they were going to beat up on Alabama in the following year opener. It wasn't hard to see that they finished 11-2 because they had a VERY easy schedule. They were also trash talking about losing recruits like Kalis.

Now my mindset is that um and their 'mostly' delusional fanbase can go pound salt. I hope they lose every game, and do not score and that every year the cupcake on their schedule Appalachian States' them. And if OSU can't win the national championship, then MSU does.

The um battle cry - "Just wait until next year!" I hope last year's 42-13 beating is mild compared to this year!

Martel look very good. Most impressed with how he ran the read option-he is very polished at it. He is also an excellent runner and can run with some power. He throws a very nice ball but I think the height thing hurts him. He had some balls tipped and it looked like a couple of other times he had to change the arc to get it over rushers. All  of those occurred in drop back situations. He seemed better rolling out. He is going to be really good.

I remember watching then - and since rewatching - that Rose Bowl several times and at the end of the game you could tell that Cooper was stunned that they had won. Almost like he didn't know what to do. Nice man and a good football coach but should have been gone by now. Also, liked Jake the Snake's reaction from his go ahead TD late in the 4th Qtr until Germaine threw the game winner.

Tired of hearing how bad Kiffen is and that if Bama just kept pounding the rock...Bucks were starting to zero in on Henry...and if I recall correctly, one of his biggest gains in the second half came on a pass play...looking back on that season, the Bucks were destined to win it all...they were playing with a chip on their shoulder...Got down to Bama - no problem...got down to OR...no problem.

Saw the Stanford and Wisconsin games in 82. Elway tore us up in the second half. I was sitting near the corner of the endzone on his game wining pass and you could just see it develop. He threw the ball on a rope. Wisconsin was played in a downpour. I was so wet, water was squirting out of my shoes as I walked to my apartment in Grandview.

I think we have some trap sections of our schedules - especially with such a young team. 

1. No doubt everyone will be up for OK but it is early season and on the road with a young team.
2. Wisc and PSU on the road, at night, back-to-back and PSU has a bye week b/4. Will we be up for both?
3. Following PSU/Wisc. we return home for back-to-back games vs. NW and Neb.
4. After we get Maryland, we end the season at MSU and home vs scum.

Our schedule is tougher than it has been and it sets up where we have tougher back-to-back games which can be hard to get up for.

I was living in Atlanta when  Herschel and Bo played. They were both beasts. I don't think either one of them lifted at all. Walker started doing thousands of push up, sit-ups and running when he was in middle school. I don't think Bo did anything. They were both big, fast, and powerful. Herschel was like a 4.3 40 guy and if I'm not mistaken, Bo ran a 4.1 something - like a 4.14 40.

Dantonio does have UFM's number. If not for a bad refs call that first year in ELansing when they called no fumble on BM, UFM is 1-3 vs MSU. You may be able to blame Beck for the first few games but after about game 4, it was squarely on UFM. Something was wrong, and like 3 years ago with Fickell, since we kept winning anyway, there was no incentive to change. Hermann was not a great play caller until VT beat us, then it was like the pressure was off and he was very good. Same thing last year - once we lost to MSU, the pressure was off and we looked like the team we should have been all year. 

I am a huge Buckeye fan and love it that we have UFM, but I tend not to wear my scarlet colored glasses very often.

I couldn't agree more - We talk about Hermann like he was perfect for 3 years. His play calling was not good until we got beat by VT. We just had much better athletes than most. Giving credit where it is due, I think his play calling changed drastically after VT. Hermann was a big reason we were 2014 NC. Moving to 2015, new OC, the offense pretty much looked like s$#% all year and UFM pretty much did nothing. Once again, it took a loss for us to pull our heads out of our a##%s and then we looked like we thought we would look all year.

UFM saw something in Beck to hire him and I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. I blame him little for last year - especially after about game 5 or 6.

I am not sure that I agree. I think it took the loss to MSU to wake up the coaching staff.
Had we squeaked by them with the way we played all year, I still think we were going to lose a game at some point.
It was like two years ago with the D - and "We won didn't we?! .. and then proceeded to lose in the B1G championship  to MSU because of some awful play calling and then lost to Clemson because of our D and a fumbled punt return.
Seems like we get on a streak and we are afraid to make changes, even though it is obvious we are winning simply because we have better talent than most. Play calling has mostly been head scratching except for that stretch in 2014 after the VT loss through the NC game - and we even had a couple of blips them.

With the team we had last year - 2014 may have been an early gift - but those opportunities do not come around often and it was disappointing that the season played out the way it did. We spent more time trying to reward players than letting them get rewarded as part of the team accomplishments. I am looking forward to next season and seeing what we learned last year.

Go Bucks!
