Thanks for posting the link to the YouTube video on Real Life Wednesday. It is awesome !!! That endeavor is definitely a winner for all involved.
Thanks Kareem !! During halftime one of the CBS commentators also stated that Thad's zone d is not working and that we should switch to man. Let's see if Thad makes a change.
Why are we trailing by double digits to a UNC team that lost to Iowa two weeks ago?
This is an absolute disgrace !! I am not pleased with having Tebow speak to our team. The TOSU has great tradition and many, many accomplished former players that could offer advice and inspiration to the current Buckeyes.We do not need a washed up former college star with no connection to Buckeye Nation talking to the team when there are Real Buckeye stars such as Eddie George, Robert Smith, Chris Spielman, Chris Carter and many others that could provide greater insight and motivation. I have long grown weary of hearing about Urban's "daring deeds" during his tenure at UF. The dude needs to make some history here at TOSU by defeating a strong occ opponent or two, then, perhaps he can stop relying upon past glories at UF to buttress his credibility.
Awesome !! Yes, you can wear it in the South. Trust me, due to abysmal ignorance of most of the populace, they will fail to comprehend the significance. I know, I live in ATL.
All of our assistant coaches deserve a hefty raise. Name one position that has not shown marked improvement this years. Poor Zach Smith is being paid peanuts, yet our wide receivers have been fantastic this year. Stan Drayton has done a great job with the rbs (two 1,000 yard backs two years in a row.) Our dline is awesome, thanks to Larry Johnson. Our TEs under Hinton are also awesome. I would hate to lose any of our assistant coaches !! Again, give them all a raise !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not surprisingly, the bashing of our Buckeyes has started in earnest. What is surprising is that it is occurring on the B1G Network show, B1G Football and Beyond. Why is the B1G Network hiring former SEC players to be analysts. All three commentators said we have no chance against Alabama's defensive line.. Why can't our own conference's network show some love for the Bucks?
So very disappointing - JTB definitely deserved an invitation !! What an awesome season he had. Major bummer !!!
Anything to get back to the greatest bowl of them all, The Rose Bowl. I have been to all of the big ones, Rose, Sugar, Fiesta and Orange and the Rose Bowl is incomparable. Besides I rather be in toney Pasadena, than tawdry New Orleans.
AWESOME TRIO !!!!!
I am not really surprised by the selection of JK as B1G COTY. Obviously, the main criterion is doing more with less. UFM has it all, the best facilities, best players, best fanbase and all the financial resources he needs to be successful. He is getting paid millions to do what he is doing. Few other B1G football programs have all the advantages OSU offers. Everyone expects OSU football to be excellent, therefore, few are impressed when regardless of the circumstances the coaching staff meets those expectations.
Go to the sports section of the WBNS website to view the entire interview. It is amazing !! Sorry I am not sufficiently tech savvy to post it here. ;-(
Reading Troy's poignant comments brought tears to my eyes. Both he and Tress have been, and will always be, among my favorite Buckeyes. I seriously doubt that any of our current players would ever make such an endearing statement about UFM. I look forward to being in "The Shoe" Saturday, to once again see Troy and Tress and reminisce about the last truly Golden Age of Buckeye football.
I am so very happy for Jalin !!! What a great spark for the Buckeyes when they desperately needed it !!!!
I live in ATL and am headed to Cbus and "The Game" next week. I am so glad to be able to escape from SEC territory and spend some time in Buckeyeland. Happy Thanksgiving and GO BUCKS !!!
There is no coach or team in mens college bball I despise more than slick Cal and his entitled brood. I am totally repulsed by the idea of having to read 4 or 5 months of press on the 'awesomeness" of big blue. OMG UGH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can we please focus on our own truly awesome coach, T Matta, and his team of decent, hardworking young men ????
Replay showed that Marshall's fumble was a good defensive play by the Minny defender. It clearly showed that the ball was punched out and not carelessly dropped by JM. My issue was that none of our guys was able to just fall on the loose ball, score a TD and prevent the eventual touchback.
My only affection for Sparty lies in the fact that 3 MSU coaches have solid Buckeye ties, and all 3 are connected to TRESS. It is like a mini Tress vs Urban scenario all over again.
Please help me to understand the source of everyone's optimism about the MSU game. I have spent mucho $ (I do not live in Cbus, and I fly in for the games) and time going to 5 of our games this season and I have yet to see us play well against competent competition. We slaughter "The Sisters of the Poor" and look vulnerable when the opponent is decent. As long as Tom Herman is calling plays, I cannot feel good about our chances tomorrow. If we are lucky, we may eke out a win.
We have not won a road game with major national implications during Urb's tenure. Until we do, I can only remain cautiously optimistic about our chances in such games. The OT win against a mediocre PSU team really deflated my hopes that we had "arrived". Besides, unless we win convincingly, we will not be seriously considered for the CF Playoff. Sorry, I cannot get too pumped about a B1G Title without a chance for the CF Final Four.
I miss Tress !!!!!! He will always be my FAVORITE Buckeye coach !!! May God continue to bless him and his family.
Why is our offense always so mediocre in big games ?
No team from the state of Mississippi should be in anything except the Egg Bowl. Do not drink the kool aid. The SEC West is not all it is
cranked up to be. Alabama and LSU are average at best with the rest riding their coattails. UGA is the only real team in the entire SEC.
Watching MSU/Neb- pulling for Neb. - lost respect for MSU after Sparty let an overrated Oregon team drop 45 on them- OSU will light up MSU when they play
Who Dey !! I live in ATL and I was pulling for Cincy !! The Bengals' defense is awesome !! I will be in the Ga. Dome in Nov., rooting for the Browns !!
