For the first time in many years, I am not particularly excited about the upcoming season. Frankly, I am more excited to see how all of our new pro players are going to fare than watching the current team. I really miss Zeke, Brax, 12 Gauge, Tyvis, TD, the Apples, D Lee and having a Boren on the team . The current team is just plain dull and boring. No-one has any swag or personality. I wish them the best of luck but, I am more interested in watching Zeke become the next star for the Dallas Cowboys and seeing Brax do more of his sick moves in a pro game.

I really don't care what the outsiders do. I will take my chances with Danny Clark, the Ohio kid who obviously wants to be a Buckeye since he has been committed to OSU for 3 years.

I pull for any non SEC team when they play an SEC team. I also root for any team that can defeat Clemson.

Texas, Stanford, Oklahoma and Nebraska are my specific favorite teams.

What a terrible thing to do to an Ohio kid, who has been sincerely loyal and definitely wants to be a Buckeye ! Karma is a b and I would not be surprised if neither of the two out of state kids end up at OSU. Cam Akers is not leaving Mississippi, nor the South, to play at OSU. It really angers me to see our young men displaced by out of state players that could really care less about truly being a Buckeye. Absolutely disgraceful !!!!!!!!!! Matta has learned his lesson. What will it take for Urban to learn his ? This would never have happened under JT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read all of the twitter condolences from former Buckeyes and I was touched but, as I read  Tressel's comments I could not hold back the tears. He was and still remains the ultimate steward of the Buckeyes' legacy of fraternity and brotherhood.

I think that next season there will be a tremendous drop in the quality of play etc. At this stage, I do not foresee any current player that can equal the play of those that left after last season. Players like Braxton, Zeke, Joey, Darron, Taylor, Cardale and Tyvis are truly exceptional, and most are once in a generation players. For example, Zeke trails only Archie in all time OSU rushing yards. It is highly unlikely that any current rb will come close to his offensive output or exhibit  his great blocking skills. A similar comparison can be made for each player I listed. Who on the team has the skill set of Braxton Miller or the sheer arm strength of 12 Gauge ? Yes, all of the current Buckeyes are talented but, realistically how many also possess the persona, swagger and confidence that a player needs to be successful on the field. Yes, I look forward to cheering for them but, I would not be surprised to see a 2016 football season similar to the  2016 basketball season.

Woody and Tress are irreplaceable in the highest level of TOSU coaching pantheon. They were not only great coaches, but each also possessed a unique persona that was courageous, empathetic, professorial, humanitarian and paternalistic. Not only were they great coaches but their off the field actions spoke of a selflessness  and caring that transcended football. UFM is an amazing coach and individuals are seemingly drawn to him as a result of his success, not necessarily by the sheer force of his personality. Do I know him ? No, but with Tress and Woody, despite the fact that our paths never crossed one still had a better sense of their humility and true essence as a person. UFM is a coaching rock star but beyond that, I am uncertain who he is, or what he really cares about, other than football.  Therefore, Woody and Tress will always be my favorite Buckeye coaches.
