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 !!
Wish we had UGA's running backs. They are big, strong, bruising runners like Carlos Hyde.
I agree totally !!! What a horrible conference !! Va Tech even screwed up today and lost to East Carolina, which makes last week's lost even worse. TOSU must not lose another game either in, or out conference.
Sadly, we cannot complain. The B1G is absolutely putrid !!!!
KF calls time out on the missed final kick but the ISU kicker makes it on the second try. Gosh, this conference is so pathetic. I wish OSU could move to ?????
Thanks for posting this story !! It is awesome !!! Go Bucks !!!
Like him, or not, he has brought out some interesting facts in the ongoing Rice / Goodell controversy. We now know the truth about the upcoming "independent investigation". What a sham that will be !! Kudos to his research staff !
Braxton's injury and subsequent absence has really exposed the poor coaching as well as, the team's flaws. As long as UFM is coach I really do not see the situation improving.
I definitely miss Jim Tressell. It is hard to deal with the fact that OSU is but one int away from being 1 and 4 in the last 5 games. We have spent so much time gushing over UFM's past accomplishments. What has he really won lately? This is the first year that Urb's players are in the majority, as most of the young men recruited by Tress are gone and as a result, I am have little confidence that the team is headed in the right direction. A porous defense, horrendous playing by "Mr. Mensa" and a lack of real ballers will cost us several more games this season. Thanks for the memories JT. I am going to pull out the Sugar Bowl dvd and reminisce about the "way we were".
Am flying in from Kauai early Sat AM, connecting with friends from CBUS that now live in the DC/ Bal area and heading to game ! GO BUCKS!
Tressel, Tressel, Tressel without a doubt !! My all time favorite OSU coach ! Although I am glad we now have UFM, I still think of the Tressel years as one of the true high points of Buckeye football lore. His players loved him and enjoyed playing for him. Urban has the respect and awe of his players but, I seriously doubt that they really love the guy. I can never imagine UFM's players hoisting him and taking him around The Shoe the way that Tressel's former players did at the last home OSU / TTUN game. Given the circumstances, that was truly an electric moment. Besides UFM has not won anything worth mentioning at OSU, hence until he does, Tress is the MAN !!
Great play TP !!!
