don't you go drinking too much of the tOSU fan base kool-aid either; the best predictor to future performance is past performance. so that said, we should expect 3-5 years at something of a Stanford-level of success--which was not too shabby.

we should probably be less afraid of him than MSU, Wisky, and PeeSU, but UM3 hasn't been dominating meatchicken so the jury's actually still out. i don't think we're looking at another 10-year war here, but the salad days of a comfortable pasting RichRod are probably gone as well. 

well, maybe not this year. i do think we beat them up this year. ;)

Did you do all caps instead of ital (sarcasm)? Because if so, I agree

spielman needs or stick to talking about football plays. He's a great at play commentary, but sounds like an idiot in this interview. Why would BM transfer to another school where he also doesn't know if he'll play? His problem is he doesn't know if his shoulder will ever fully heal. If it doesn't, he's going to sit on the bench at some other school that won't take care of him and burn all the goodwill he has at Ohio State? He doesn't have to beat out Cardale; if he's healthly URBAN WILL PLAY HIM. We might not be as great a team; it won't matter. We'll still win. 

Let the NCAA manage the income players earn from signing autographs!?! He thought about it a lot, and that's what he came up with!?! That's THE worst idea I have heard in awhile. We need less NCAA, not more. 

Post-graduation insurance should happen though.

Jesus, thank you guys. I'm so sick of reading "Cardale throws a deep ball" so Zeke runs wild. BS. JT to Smith set a record for TDs! It's not like tOSU suddenly started throwing deep balls when Cardale took over. Again, cause and effect is always difficult to identify but you're looking at a confluence of factors: 1) Cardale was willing to throw deep balls even if the receiver wasn't open, because UM3 told him to trust his team 2) Smith and Zeke responded to that confidence in a big way 3) the run calling was much different with 12-gauge because he can't run the option 4) the entire team was improving, especially the slobs, heading into the tail end of the season 5) God/Allah/Woody loves the Buckeyes. Identifying one of those as "the cause" is oversimplifying to the point of stupidity.

+1 add beer and a kereoke machine and we're done ;)

I'm hoping he's the next Antwan Randle-El. But we'll see.

Comment 24 Apr 2015

I think you're thinking of McCall (5-11, 180). I was asking about Hill (6-0, 200). I thought he warned to be a RB?

But H-back might make sense

Canton (Mich.) Plymouth offensive lineman Michael Jordan has been to Ohio State multiple times including over the weekend for the Buckeyes’ spring game. This time Jordan made the trip to Columbus with his mother, father, sister and brother.

“The atmosphere was crazy,” Jordan replied when asked about the Ohio State spring game. “There were so many people. The game was good. I enjoyed watching them compete for spots.”

Jordan spoke with Urban Meyer, Ed Warinner and Kerry Coombs before and after the game. He spent Saturday night in Columbus before he and his family drove home on Sunday morning.

“I think what impressed my family the most was talking to coach Meyer – his personality,” Jordan said.


Comment 21 Apr 2015

This makes zero sense. If I was into conspiracy theories, i would say Finebaum is working as a mouthpiece for Lil Nicky to advertise that they have a spot open. He's probably not particularly interested or believes that BM would come there, but mentioning BM makes a big splash that gets reported by ESPiN so that if there are any GA transfers out there looking for a spot, now they know there is one.

Free national advertising; Alabama has a spot! Come and get it!

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Unfortunately that didn't happen; at least last year. We had the need, but Gallimore and all the other big-time tackles we offered went somewhere else. 

I think Coach Johnson will be able to develop someone though. Or we'll go with a smaller-sized DL to neutralize passing attacks and need the LBs to step up to stop the run (they can do it, I think).

Comment 21 Apr 2015

I'm still wondering if we won't see Bosa shifting down and lining up at tackle a bit more this year. He's strong enough (for college) and since we have better extra ends than tackles, move Bosa around and get more of those ends on the field.

I'm sure they'll try it; we'll see what happens. 

Comment 20 Apr 2015

i meant to mention this before when it came up, but i read I read Bobby Knight's book. As a part of the last tOSU team to win a basketball championship, it's worth reading if you have the time.

He repeats his major premise a few times and can't explain how IU tailed off there at the end, but it gives you a pretty good inside into how he thought as a coach--make fewer mistakes than the other guy and you'll win; that's basically what he means by the power of negative thinking. Instead of bullsh!tting yourself (positive thinking), figure out what's wrong and fix it.

"Yes, it's a dream come true," Potter said of the decision. "There's a big sense of pride being able to play for the home town team, and It'll help us (Potter, Funderburk) play harder knowing we have to defend our home."

wow. I think I have a little bit of dust in my eye

Comment 20 Apr 2015

Fyi, here's the title of the ESPiN article after the game: "Buckeyes have no answers for Sanchez, Trojans' offense"


that's not a problem with recruiting; it's a problem with defensive philosophy. and if you want to read a good article on how bad our OC was you can google the Chris Brown (smart football) article on it.
