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 !!!
Could someone please tell me what is so great about Alabama's marquee neutral site game for 2014? West Virginia was 4-8 last season. The "mighty" Tide have a "really tough" ocs with the likes of West Virginia, Florida Atlantic, Southern Miss and Western Carolina. Wow, what a scary oc schedule !!! Compared to UGA's oc and ic schedules, Bama's are pathetic. If one actually compares the Bucks' schedules with those of several SEC schools, I think one will find that the Bucks' schedule is fairly competitive.
For those who think adding UNLV hurts our 2017 SOS, I suggest that they review the schedule. It has the potential to be very tough. The team will need a breather ! OSU plays Oklahoma the week prior to the newly added UNLV game. In addition, that year the Buckeyes play crossover conference games against IOWA and NEBRASKA. Couple all of those games with our B1G East opponents of PSU, MSU and TTUN and I think the schedule is potentially extremely competitive. Besides when did UNC become a juggernaut in football? I definitely do not fault GS for the 2017 schedule revision. Keep the $ in CBUS !
I am so disappointed with Greg !! One would think that given all the recent publicity surrounding the RR situation that athletes would be far more cautious and just walk away from an argument. Hopefully, Silver will have more "balls" than Goodell, and give him a lengthy suspension. If OSU kicked TP to the curb for some petty bs, GO should be banned from campus for an even longer period.
The statement he gave in response to the question that was posed regarding Tress and Urban was so classy. What was super young man. I hope he is able to return to The Shoe sometime this season so we can show him how much we love and appreciate him.
Good luck Troy !!!
Fact- The 49ers and Jim Harbaugh are at odds. Probable- Hoke is terminated at the end of this season. Possible- Harbaugh leaves San Fran due to problems with 49ers' management and becomes the next coach at his alma mater. Scary thought for the B1G East. The level of competition in our division would be unreal.
Totally agree !! No B1G kid with any knowledge of the past or present, should ever choose to play for one of the pseudo schools of the sec over playing for one of the fine academic institutions of the B1G. I wish the young man well.
Although I regret that he did not select OSU, nevertheless his choice is a win for the B1G over several SEC institutions and FSU. I would much rather have him stay in conference than to go to one of the pseudo schools in the South. Congrats to PSU !
According to the article, this was not a singular decision. It was reached after a two month investigation and was rendered collectively by senior OSU administrators with President Drake delivering the decision. The investigation commenced before Dr. Drake assumed office. Under the circumstances, I feel confident that the outcome would have been the same regardless of whether Dr. Gee was still here. After the tragedy at FAMU, everyone should known that there would be zero tolerance for any form of harassment or hazing.
In retrospect, "The Tat Five" really got a raw deal. There have been egregious violations committed by other schools' student athletes and literally NOTHING is done. Look at the UNC bball scandal. Can you imagine the media outcry if that had taken place at TOSU? It would be great to give the NCAA a collective Marcus Hall db flip by welcoming back "The Tat Five". Come home Terrelle !!
Great article !! I totally agree. I live in SEC land and outside of Les MIles, MR is probably the only other coach in that conference that truly cares about his players. The problem for Richt is the UGA fanbase, which definitely does not appreciate the fact that he is a person of great integrity. Year after year, fans down here are always calling for the guy's scalp. Although I know it is an unrealistic wish, it would be super if he left UGA and its fickle fans and come to coach in B1G where he would be respected for the sincere person that he is..
It is the fact that he spurned OSU for our most despised SEC team, the hated Fla Gators that is so annoying. If he had stayed in the B1G or selected any other school but one from the SEC the vitriol level would have been negligible. But it is only July, and who knows he may have a change of heart as Muschamp may not be there by December or January.
The King is coming home from Fla !! This kid will see the error of his decision and commit to the Buckeyes later this year !! The King, Johnny Football and OSU- the best trio in sports !!!
Wow, Cleveland will be the center of the pro sports universe with both "The King" and Johnny Football !! GO BUCKS !!
