I am not really sure why everyone is so excited. If we had landed a really big name then, I could understand the excitement. Although I see it as just an ok hire, I certainly wish him well, and will wait and see how things progress. For now, all of my enthusiasm is saved for the upcoming football season. Mens bball at TOSU is back to being an afterthought !!!
Just because Harbaugh initiated it does not make it a bad idea ! If Urban had done it first, everyone would be pleased. Many of those young men have probably never had an opportunity to travel abroad. I wish our players were afforded a similar opportunity. Throughout my career, I took both my students and players overseas on many occasions. When I encounter any of them today, they always remember their time abroad as a valuable learning experience. Yes, JH has some weird to eccentric ideas, but taking his players abroad to meet the Pope and experience Rome is not one of them. Kudos to him for finally doing something right !!!!
What a great video of an awesome presentation !! This was not only good for the players but, also for the fans. It provided insight into the fact these young men are not just "automatons" but, real people with feelings, problems, joys and expectations. So, the next time one of our players drops a pass, misses a block or muffs a punt, hopefully, we as fans will be more understanding and less harsh with our criticism.
Shame on his SS teachers !! Someone needs to give this kid a history lesson ! Hey Jackson, "Underground" airs Wednesdays, at 10 PM, on WGN America, I strongly suggest that you watch, learn and remember. GO BUCKS !!!
I prefer not to speculate on the length of their tenure at OSU, until we see results on the field. Just because they are UFM's bffs does not mean instant success on the gridiron. With the exception KW, I am not sold on this new group of coaching hires. This time next year, we could possibly want some, or all of them gone so, I think it is prudent to just wait, and see.
I am refuse to bash Harbaugh until our own coaching staff gets it together. Numerically, the win/loss record is great, but UFM has only 1 B1G Championship, and after that embarrassing beatdown by trailer trash U, I am no longer drinking the kool aid. Seeing is believing for me in 2017.
Four Sweet 16s in 4 years !! Nigel Hayes, just another Ohio kid doing great things in ANOTHER B1G basketball program !! Thanks Thad !
On Wisconsin !!!!
Thank you BUCKEYECHIP !! Your statement was perfect ! Everyone seems to forget that at the age of 21 or 22, most of us did some pretty dumb things. I know that I did. Also, the last time I checked, Zeke is no longer a student at TOSU. He has moved on to bigger and better things, such as the Dallas Cowboys. So, I seriously doubt that he cares what of any of us think, especially, Chris Spielman. Unless, you are Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett or at the least, a season ticket holder for the Dallas Cowboys, you really don't have a "nickel in his dime".
Although Belichick and I share the same alma mater, I am not a fan of his, the Pats or his TTUN QB. Frankly, I detest both the coach and his qb.Yes, he has 5 SB rings, but they were all won with TB, and I can never be supportive of any former TTUN player that flourishes on any level, except one, LLK, Jr., who was truly a man of honor.
Quick ? Now that Brax and Zeke are pro players, can't they sue for the unauthorized use of their likeness in advertising?
How pathetic !! This is definitely deceptive and misleading !! Braxton and Zeke are Buckeyes, not UT alums and have NO connection to UT. I am curious as to how former Longhorn players feel about the new coach using players from other schools to lure recruits. I am definitely off the TH bandwagon. I can't wait until the Red River shootout ! Boomer Sooner all the way !!!!!!!
Awesome players and young men !! I am so glad they succeeded at the next level, despite poor coaching at OSU. I am still haunted by the grossly underachieving 2015 season. It is so frustrating, when I think of all the unrealized talent that team had and yet, no national championship. Wow !!!
Great move !! Good luck TG and LF !!!
Awesome !!! Congratulations and best wishes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The very first time I pull for Bama, they lose to the one team that I abhor, detest and despise the most. What is even more aggravating, is DW spurned TOSU to attend Deliverance U. I just hope the Browns draft him so, his NFL career is ruined.
I hope Bama wins easily ! Clemson beat a highly flawed OSU team. I have watched Clemson play several times this past season, and yes, they are good but, nearly as good as they appeared when they trounced OSU. Besides after seeing what was done to CS with impunity, I can never ever pull for anyone named Dabo, and his gross band of "Deliverance" perverts. Never thought I would write, "Roll Tide", but there it is !!
Go get paid !!!! Good luck and best wishes !!!!!
Congrats !! Now go get paid !!! It makes absolutely no sense to remain in a program with an impotent offense !!!
Great for OSU !! But based on the results of the last two years, that is a terrible decision for him. Especially, if he is projected to be a 1st rounder !! Go get paid young man ! Unless there is an uber major overhaul of the offensive line, there will not be a ring in 2017.
The Clemson football team, coaches and fans are all characters straight out of "DELIVERANCE". Dabo reminds me of the dueling banjos boy. I guess Boulware likes to reenact the sexual assault scene from the movie every time he is on the field. Seriously, I do not understand why there has not been any condemnation of the situation by the national media.
After this bowl season, the B1G is a laughing stock ! Next year, I doubt that any B1G team will make the CFP without a perfect record. Yes, I was pulling for other B1G teams, including PSU. At least their qb can pass, their receivers can catch and Barkley is better than any back we have on our roster. By the way, I live in the "Land of Deliverance", where when your team sucks, you become a conference homer.
Great news ! Great decision !! I wish him much success at the next level !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While the loss to Clemson is horrific, the fact that it was shutout is even more telling !! ELEVEN of 14 teams scored against Clemson this season. The only 3 that did not were Syracuse, South Carolina State ( a small HBCU with only 2600 students) and TOSU. How embarrassingly pathetic !! A warning to any current players that are nobly thinking of returning to this dumpster fire, get out if you can. Unless some major coaching changes are effected during the off season, nothing will change. For those that doubt that sentiment, check out Darron Lee's twitter comments on the play calling the last two years. Losing the Fiesta Bowl was not the problem, it is how the game was lost that is so very, very troubling.
Nooooooooo !! Please do both yourself and Buckeye Nation a favor, and get out of Dodge. The eyes of Texas are upon you !! "
For everyone that says conference does not matter, don't forget if the perception of the B1G had not been strong, TOSU would not be in the CFP. Right now, the B1G looks pathetic. I hope we are not in for a 2006/07 redux !!!
