Does KG's miracle win against Purdue mean more or less in light of what Cardale did? No opinion yet, just thinking about it. 

But to be honest, I thought KG got the shaft a bit. He should have got some playing time after BM came back. 

But it looks like coaching was his future anyway, so no blood no foul...

I don't blame him for changing his mind. 6 Qbs is a lot of waiting. But if he really wants to be a buckeye...

I was telling a friend, Joe Montana only started 1 full year for ND. And his career turned out okay... ;)

But this might be a year we take a Kenny G or 3* Collier. That also seems to work out okay for us... ;)

How things play out with Weber will obviously make a difference. If Weber gets to Ohio State and likes it, then I think most people will forget the whole thing. But if Weber has problems or transfers out later down the road then I wouldn't expect many more Cass Tech stars. 

But I expect Weber will like it at tOSU and fit in well with the offense, so when he's playing for a NT and meatchicken is not, then no blood no foul, as the saying goes. ;)

Comment 26 Feb 2015

I don't like them, but the Pats made Vrabel a TE; I'm sure they could figure out something to do with Ginn.

UM3 would have made him an H back...

Comment 24 Feb 2015

+1 I agree; his best bet is to go to a team that already has 2 or 3 good receivers; then they can just use him to stretch the field--the same way we way we used him. 

Plus, if he's a backup he would have fresh legs against said safety or 3rd corner ;)

Comment 22 Feb 2015

+1 I'll just hope his twitter activity will pick up once he feels comfortable again, and it will be like old times ;)

Comment 22 Feb 2015

Fáilte ;)

see my post above; like i said, there's something about that sound that's different from any other sound you'll ever hear. I grew up in Cincinnati--people down there mostly don't care about Ohio State. But I was at Ohio State when Terry Glenn beat ND in '95. You never forget that sound.

I watch that video all the time. "We're going to win!" ;)

There are a couple of videos I showed my wife to try to get her to understand something; there's a kind of noise that can't be described when a stadium erupts. It's a kind of roar; I've never heard it at a pro game, but one at LSU registered as an earthquake on seismographs miles away. 

Anyway, I showed her the Terry Glenn TD vs ND, Holy Buckeye, and the Miller bomb to beat Wisky. There are more, but those are the ones that come to mind. You can hear it in the videos:


And just for contrast, the quietest I've heard a crowd get was after Katzenmoyer hit Corby Jones


Comment 21 Feb 2015

I up voted you, and I'm with you in principal, but the OL wasn't the problem for JT. I don't like to complain about him for the same reasons, but there was a reason The Urbanator didn't keep Heacock. If we had kept Dantonio we might have won 2 more titles. But Heacock's zone scheme was never going to. As proof, Warinner was here last year too. We won this year because Ash kept other teams from out scoring us. 

Taking nothing away from Warriner. This is one of the craziest stats I have ever heard. Why does everybody talk about him leaving? Nooooo

Comment 21 Feb 2015

+1 I have friends that went to both schools, but X doesn't ever seem to try to little brother us. As I wrote what was so great about playing Bama, we were better and still got to play underdog, I tend to root for the underdog. What X has accomplished being the smaller school is pretty amazing. 

Plus, Gunner Kiel doesn't play there. 

Comment 21 Feb 2015

You're right; he won't switch. And I agree in principal; he has more talent--in some ways. But until I see him hit a slant pass, or consistently hit intermediate length routes; his future in the Not For Long league looks short. 

So I hope he gets one more chance, that he can play a whole season healthy, and that this QB whisperer can help him use the whole field. If so, we'll win another title, and he'll have an NFL career longer than Pryor or Tebow. 

(And if not, we'll go to JT or Cardale and STILL win another title ;) and some alum will give the Braxinator a nice job and his kids will be fine ;)

Hahaha. That pretty much sums up the whole night for Kiffen I think.

Comment 21 Feb 2015

I'll take our 3*s over some of there 5*s any day of the week. If UM3 takes a 3* (at least at the beginning of the cycle), look for him to blow up later...

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Please no one get mad, but God was not catching Zeke on that play. You could feel it; he put it in some kind of superpower gear. He had to take himself out after that run; did you see him on the sidelines? He put everything he had in that run and more. 

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Honestly, I've told a couple of friends that that Bama team looked pretty beat up.

i think it did play a factor; Zeke's 85 yard TD came a play or 2 after the LB on that side went out. Spencer blocked the backup out of the play to spring Zeke.

But it's also true that he was healthy enough to start; if he went out it's also partly because we were beating them up. Boren was hurt; Zeke was hurt; they didn't come out.

So really I think both are true; they did have significant injuries; so did we (3rd string QB!) But I would say we'll see them again, and I suspect in the future they may give us a tougher game (not next year though; we're going to own them. But the year after that! Maybe they have a chance ;)

Comment 21 Feb 2015

I'm sure the coaches will look at a switch back. We're going to be good at OL and DE, but look like we might be short a tackle. Not sure Warinner will want to give him up, but his best chance to see the field again might be at tackle.

Comment 19 Feb 2015

haha that's true! ;)

i was checking the stats today; with our overall winning % in the last 100 years ;) here are the results:

meatchicken 915

Tx 884

ND 882

Nebraska 881

tOSU 863

#2-4 is all bunched up, so I was trying to think how fast we could conceivably reach the #2 spot. But this point has me wondering, how fast can we reach #1? Last years final records: meatchicken 5-7, tx 6-7, ND 8-5, Nebraska 9-4, tOSU 14-1. 

So that's +9, +8, +6, and +5. Obviously, it's unlikely to repeat too often, but at that rate we slide in to #1 in 2021. ;)
