I am hoping that Purdue does better than you have forecast. There are good Buckeye connections on the coaching staff and therefore would like the team to do well this season.
This young man is absolutely stellar !!!! He has become my favorite player on this year's team. He is an excellent representative for TOSU and the B1G !!
Read the WSJ article. You will be even more disappointed and shocked. I would expect this type of behavior from students at an SEC school, not from students at TOSU.
I would expect comments like Dan's to come from an SEC fan, not a member of Buckeye Nation !!!
I live in the land of abysmal ignorance, better known as the SEC. Of course, I always root for every B1G team except, when they play TOSU. Like Kevin H., I always wish a thousand pox upon each and every SEC team except, Vanderbilt, the one and only true academic institution in that juco conference.
Wow ! Such comments made publicly are definitely not what the team needs. While I do not question her right to send the tweets, I do question the wisdom of sending them. Thankfully, JT still believes in the mantra of "one for all, all for one".
I am not surprised that an SEC school's admittance standards for even athletes is far below those of our beloved TOSU. We can debate the academic merits of UGA and OSU but, one key objective factor remains beyond dispute, UGA is not an AAU member. When one reviews the membership roll of that elite academic organization, one sees only the best in higher ed that this country has to offer. 13 of the 14 B1G universities are members. Of the pre expansion SEC schools, only 2 are members, UF and Vandy. Adding TAM and Mizzou doubled the SEC's numbers in the AAU to a mere 4. It is ironic that UGA's nemesis Ga. Tech is a AAU member. I live in ATL, and trust me the university with the academic swagger down here is Ga. Tech., not UGA.
I live in metro ATL but, I am definitely pulling for LB and the Cavs !! GO Cavs !!!
So sorry, but I am not a "Herbie" fan. He was a marginal player at best, never supported the Bucks during difficult times and now that things are humming again, he wants back into the fold. I will take any of his ESPN "true" Buckeye colleagues( Spielman, Smith and Galloway) over him any day. Those gentlemen always support the scarlet and gray whether times are good or bad, happy or sad.
Good luck TP !!!!!!
UFM is awesome, but I will ALWAYS love Tress. He is simply the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome movie !! Beautifully filmed at the Juvet Landscape Hotel in Norway. Anyone think that a sequel is possible ?
Hope Jarrett G enjoys playing at UT (Undrafted Tennessee)
It is very disconcerting to constantly see that OSU cannot bring in the best bball players from the great state of OHIO. Why do the state's best bball players not want to attend TOSU ? Regardless of the current scholarship limitations, Thad has been turned down by many of Ohio's quality players. What is going on? Can you imagine the awesome basketball teams TOSU could field if Ohio's best players just stayed and played for TOSU?
Great posts JamesBrown322 !!! Your perspective mirrors mine exactly !!!
Totally AWESOME !! I hate Kentucky and all things SEC !!! If Wiscy can win Monday, that would give the B1G both major championships in 2015. Go B1G !!!!!!
What is frustrating me are all the Ohio guys playing key roles on three of the four FF teams. I can only imagine the type of mens bball team TOSU could field if TM could keep our best players in state.
I was very unimpressed with the halftime show. It lacked energy, too many band members were out of line and the crowd seemed disinterested. Frankly, I do not want anyone from the SEC doing anything of note at TOSU. The job should go to someone that already knows and respects the traditions of TBDBITL. Go Bucks and all things OSU !!
The Iron King or XBrax, with my solid preference going to King Dolodale. His physical intangibles cannot be matched by the other two. Xbrax has elusiveness and speed but, 12 Gauge has the monster arm, is difficult to sack and because of his size can literally punish defensive linemen and linebackers. Besides, 12 Gauge led to the team to the Nat. Championship, and I am not completely confident the other two could have done the same.
I live in Atlanta, and there are many Buckeye and B1G fans in the metro area. I detest all things SEC. Go Bucks ! Go B1G !
BUCKEYE NATION should support ZEKE ! The only way I could even consider voting for any of the other candidates was if they were connected in some way to TOSU.
Just arrived home from the game. I am so disappointed as I was pulling for LB and the Cavs. Met some awesome Buckeye fans which helped to take away some of the sting of the Cav's loss. Go Bucks !!
Great post !! Thankfully, I live in metro Atlanta, which is also home to many Buckeye and B1G alums. Hardly a day goes by that I do not see a car sporting a sticker etc from a B1G university. The major problem here is sports talk radio, which is horribly biased toward the SEC. Even though the ACC is represented here by Ga. Tech, that school and its conference are treated as afterthoughts by the local sports media. After Tech's Orange Bowl win over Miss State, Paul Johnson, GT's football coach, stated that thankfully he does not have to hear about the SEC for another year.
I am not surprised by the Auburn players' outrageous behavior. It is the SEC, what do you expect? By the time next season rolls around, many players from that conference will be arrested or charged with committing some egregious act. Fortunately, the Buckeye coaching staff recruits young men that possess character and integrity. I am so proud of our student/athletes !!
