When in need of a quote, you can never go wrong paraphrasing Wayne Woodrow Hayes. "Archie Griffin is a better person than he is a football player and he is the best football player I have ever seen."  Another quote from Woody that demonstrates that Urb is indeed a student of the "Old Man": "Coaches who can outline plays on a backboard are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their players' heads and motivate them."

Some guy named Tebow won 2 National Championships and a NFL playoff game with bad form. We have straight up ballers that can tote the rock and catch the rock. I have no problem with a QB that can run, but I don't want a running QB. I want a QB that leads men onto the field, inspires and elevates all those around him and distributes the ball to everyone. Which keeps everyone sharp and focused because, hey, I just might get the ball this play instead of watching the QB dance down the field. The Gauge's distribution chain is far longer than the other options. He isn't as flashy a runner. Good. He also does not try and be the hero on every play with his jitter bugging.

Couldn't agree more. The Gauge isn't as athletic as Pryor was but neither one is shy of contact. Pryor threw LB's to the ground like used Kleenex. I'm excited to see Cardale's improvement and wonder wistfully.......What If, Pryor had a QB coach and not a video coordinator?

A huge way 12 Gauge helped The Buckeyes win the NC was in forcing Herman to simplify the game plan and not try and get too cute. Herman admitted that at times during the season he would over think things. He couldn't afford to do that with The Gauge. Let Zeke pound the rock, let Gauge launch some rockets and run just enough to keep the D honest, throw in a little Spencer to Thomas trickeration and you got yourself the first ever Playoff National Championship.

He was a kid that felt like the coaches at the time were not looking out for his best interest. Emphasis on kid. I'm glad I haven't been crucified for every stupid thing that came out of my pie hole between the ages of 18-22. Nor do I hold a grudge against Maurice Clarett for some of the unfortunate things he has said and done.  Robert may not be Mr. Warm and Fuzzy but he never personally attacked the character of any player involved in Tatgate or the coaches for recruiting "those type players", kirk herbstreit. Robert Smith is a Buckeye by birth, by sweat and by blood. He gives straight forward game/player analysis and lets the chips fall where they may without licking the SEC's balloon knot or vying for Homer of the year. And like Mo, he was one hell of a Buckeye while we had him and I really enjoyed watching him tote the rock.

Dear George,

You have all the tools to be a high achiever in life. The more you achieve in life and the further in the past high school becomes, the less it will have any meaning for you. I'm not besmirching your school, but I doubt your high school coach got you an introduction to the Governor of Ohio, one of the most powerful men on Wall Street or any of the other myriad of Fortune 100 representatives that Urban routinely sets up. The Ohio State University can set you up for life, period. Let go of the past and embrace the future.
