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.
Does anyone really think that young man is going to decommit from Bama to come to OSU ? Even if he does decommit, he will end up at SoCal. Read the latest recruiting services predictions.
Wow I! Coach/President Tressel is the epitome of class. He is, and always will be, my favorite Buckeye coach.
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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No contest ! Kobe ! I detest the Warriors.
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.
I had hoped for an old Big East championship game so, it is especially great to see Carolina go down in flames !! Congrats to the Villanova Wildcats !!!!!!!!!!! Well done !!!
Awesome ! I am glad I do not have to hear about the "wondrous" Steph C. I am so tired of hearing about him. I am even more pleased that it was two former Buckeyes that ended his home court win streak ! Go Cavs ! Go Celtics ! Go Bucks !
Great ! Although I am in ATL, I can listen to T and B online.
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.
I will gladly support his business endeavor !!
LOL !! He cannot be serious !! Has he been to Colorado lately ?
Super staff with great prospects for success but, I am also impressed with the new Illini staff which is a majority NFL staff(Most are former Bears and Buccaneers assistants) that has equally high expectations. It will be interesting to see which one has the most long term success.
Three B1G teams in Sweet 16- OSU could not even score two home wins in the NIT. We need better players and much better coaching ! The Men's Bball program is regressing, while the rest of the conference is progressing. OSU will once again be just a football school.
No way, we win in Norman, and I expect 2 conference losses. OSU will have far too many inexperienced and unproven players. 9-3 at best.
We will definitely miss 12 Gauge !
Add another former NFL coach to the new Illini staff, Luke Butkus. Luke is Dick's nephew, and also a former member of Smith's Bears staff. Lovie is essentially hiring his entire former NFL staff. Very impressive !!!
Awesome !! Still love "The Vest" !! Now allow TP to come home, so we can finally close the book on TatGate.
Great hire !! The B1G West is the weak side of the conference. I see no reason why the Illini under LS will not be successful in that division. Besides, there is a Buckeye connection. Hence, I certainly wish him well !
This is an excellent hire !! His success will depend upon the staff he assembles. He if can get a staff with years of NFL experience he will have an advantage in recruiting that not many can match. In a few years, The Illini could be the class of the B1G West. I am excited for them and the B1G.
Good luck and God bless Cardale !!! He will definitely be missed. His stretch run in 2014-15 will always be remembered. I still often think how well he would have fared last season if Tom Herman had been here. ;(
I saw "Chicago" last Sunday, and Eddie was awesome. I was so proud of his performance. I spoke briefly with several other Buckeye fans after the performance and they were also equally impressed with his thespian skills. Unfortunately, my friends kept complaining about the cold and were unwilling to wait outside the stage door so I could get an autograph hence, I missed an opportunity to congratulate Eddie. Make the effort to see Chicago before Eddie's run is over. I guarantee you will be both pleased and proud. OH
This team is the worst in TM's tenure at OSU. Wow, I even miss last year's team. This team is erasing all the gains of the past few years and with no really outstanding recruits coming in, it seems mens' bball is headed back to obscurity. This team continues to make the same mistakes every game and never seems to progress. At this point, it is unlikely they will even make the NIT. What is even more frustrating is to see Nigel Hayes doing us in again. How long until football season ?
