  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have two:

    1) Being on A Deck, 45 yard line, when Eddie George ran all over Notre Dame and the crowd started chanting "Ed-die, Ed-die, Ed-die!"

    2) Being in the Louisiana Superdome and mockingly chanting "S-E-C, S-E-C, S-EC!" when Ohio State beat Arkansas. It DID happen. I was THERE! You can wipe the record books, but not my memories.

Living in Denver and having attended the playoff game at mile high vs U Denver..I love this. I forget what year it was. I just remember the heckling I got from the stupid shirtless Denver dbags in front of my kids during that game. Our crime was sporting Buckeye gear and cheering for  theOSU.  I tuned out the last half of the game. Kept reminding myself to not get into a fight, especially with the kids with me. I smiled and showed sportsmanship instead.

I know the father of a former Buckeye player, one that was with tOSU during the good times a few years back. He predicted this slide and pinpointed recruiting. Said that he could tell that Matta's style was going to make him miss on some recruits, and there would be a slide. I didn't beleive him at the time, because Thad seems so likable, but I am not that close of an insider. 

I am confident Thad can right the ship.

Stud concerns me - just not proven yet. Warriner would appear to be the better coach.

Not concerned about JT Barret leading the 2017 Buckeyes.  He has proven he can do it and that he has the talent and intangibles.  Put a good performer in a situation with bad leadership and mentoring, and you get a bad result. Kinda like every high draft pick the Browns get.

I agree.  Forcier really looked like an ass-kicker and had a lot of hype going to Michigan, and honestly he had some flashes of great playmaking at Michigan.  So some measureables and play-making ability are comparable and they share the same first name. But that's it. The intangibles are the difference.  You can tell by the way TM speaks and leads and wins.  There is something different there and I think he is an Urban Meyer QB.

Maybe a bit short for a QB, but Troy Smith is (barely) 6' and Russell Wilson is 5'11'. I'm not worried about him being able to be productive in college. Winners win - and they are not afraid of competition.

I feel bad for Warriner if people are calling for his head. The guy was a GREAT O-line coach. He turned a TE into an O-line draft pick. 

His success earned him a promotion, the O struggles and now he's on the street?  He was a great line coach.  He got Peter principled at worst. I think it is bigger than one guy. It is how the offensive staff meshed. O-line was a problem this year. As we're receivers. How about Stud and Smith?  Warriner can coach. I'm not positive about the others. The staff needs to be aligned, and I just think we need someone with stronger mindset and direction to lead. Wilson would fit that bill, but if one coach has to go, not sure it should be Warriner.  He will probably be hired by Herman to coach O-Line, because, Mensa.

So maybe JT gets the benefit of the doubt going into next year due to his experience, if that experience is better for the team than young raw talent, it will be apparent. Meyer is not Cooper. 

I'm not concerned about anything after that. You come to tOSU to compete. The best QB will start after that. There is no pecking order. 

Comment 03 Jan 2017

I'm not sure who from the Pro ranks we would want running our offense, other than Chip Kelly. NFL offense OSU is not. I want speed. Of course, I don't follow the pro game closely. 

Names?

If only we could go through life eliminating every challenge with a simple down vote, as if we were working a remote control and all we've got to do is change the channel back to our Selfie Safe Space.

Hmmm... that would make a sweet sci-fi short. I think Black Mirror did something close, but from a different angle. 

What about the Buckeyes who randomly change the subject?

Those coaster are sweet - but they are missing the 2 most recent:  85 yds through the heart of the south and the Brooklyn Dagger!  Holy Buckeye would be nice, too...but...Purdue.
