I also live in Ga., and I do not even try to make any comparison between the TOSU and UGA. It is a "wanna be school", athletically and academically. UGA is not even regarded as the best university in its own home state. Ga Tech and Emory share that distinction. Students that attend UGA usually cannot be admitted to either Tech or Emory. UGA has had only two Heisman winners and doesn't even have a decent indoor practice facility for its supposedly vaunted football team. The basketball team is horrible and plays in a small, outdated arena. Succinctly, UGA is not an AAU institution and has an endowment that is barely 1/3 of Ohio State's. Lastly, if UGA is so great, why have several of Georgia's most talented athletes come north to play at TOSU?
Hey, what's up with Joey Galloway ? Why is he so salty about the Zeke situation? Is he missing Saturdays with Beth Mowins?
Thank you for your positive posts regarding EZE, SILVER BULLET 10. ZEKE owes no one an apology. Both he and his family have been the best of the best during his three years as a Buckeye. W, L or D this Saturday, he will always be one of my favorite Buckeyes.
Zeke is not the only player that had a problem with the "game plan" from yesterday's debacle. Darron Lee has strongly defended Zeke in subsequent tweets. Darron's reply to Kirk Barton's criticism of Zeke was, "The truth hurts bruh like this loss". Frankly, I am proud of Zeke for expressing his thoughts. Zeke is an outstanding young man and has been an exemplary representative for both the team and TOSU. He is the #3 rusher in the celebrated history of OSU football. As for some calls to bench him, that would be a highly ineffective move as he could simply state he does not want to risk further injury to his leg, leave the team and prepare for the draft. Given his parents' connection to Mizzou, he could probably train there. Note that 23 CURRENT NFL players have been arrested since the 2015 Super Bowl, and miscreants such as Greg Hardy are still allowed to play in the NFL, I seriously doubt that Zeke's comments will preclude him from having an NFL career. Actually, it would behoove the staff to console Zeke, as this time next year, he could be a very wealthy young man and it would be great to have him follow Mike Conley's example and present the university with a generous token of his "abiding affection" for TOSU.
Lebron or John Legend
The Vest is and will always be my favorite Buckeye coach !
Given the large number of former Buckeyes that work as sports analysts and announcers Herbie is the only one that continually draws the ire of many in Buckeye Nation. Why ? The others manage to be objective with their criticism, while KH's comments always seem to smack of undue negativity.
What was the purpose of posting that article ? The Mizzou football team has returned to practice and is probably preparing to beat BYU.Why are we not discussing the OSU/Illini game? I do not read 11W to evaluate the merits of various student protests. Since the athletic connection to the Mizzou protests is no longer relevant, LET IT GO, LET IT GO.
Wow ! I am surprised by both the leniency of Buckeye fans and Coach Myer. I think a minimum two or three game suspension is in order, especially, after UFM's recent comments on leadership and discipline. But the fact that JT is both the fans and media's "Anointed One" causes everyone to minimize his indiscretion. As the face of the program and undisputed leader of the team, he should be held to a higher standard. If this situation had happened to Cardale, everyone would be calling for his head. How ironic that after all the vitriol and venom that has been spewed toward 12 Gauge this season, he is once again the one that will be called upon to "save the day."
What bothers me most about the Cardale saga is the fact that so many Buckeye "fans" have totally forsaken this young man. The comments and remarks that have been made about him are both degrading and disappointing. No, he has not played up to expectations. But what has it cost the team and Buckeye Nation ? Nothing, absolutely nothing, as the team is still undefeated and ranked # 1. Rather than trash the kid, why not offer supportive comments ? Does ANYONE remember that earlier this year, the now much maligned Cardale Jones, guided his team to a National Championship ? Now everyone craps on him, but gives the coaching staff a pass. Frankly, noone in the media or on any OSU blogs has addressed what I think is the real problem, poor coaching. When Tom Herman was coaching our quarterbacks their play was amazing. Remember how well Kenny G, JT, Brax and Cardale all played when Tom Herman was their coach ? Without Tom Herman, quarterback play has regressed, not improved. Beck never did anything good with Martinez or Armstrong at Nebraska. Both players under his tutelage were mistake prone and average at best. Why did anyone think it would be any different here at OSU? In my opinion, he is the second coming of Nick Siciliano. Again, why are OSU fans so quick to blame Cardale and not criticize his qb coach? We have witnessed what Cardale could do with good coaching, win us championships (B1G and National).
The very thought of that young man visiting Ole Miss makes me sick to my stomach. Obviously, he will not win any social studies awards. I hope he has fun with Colonel Reb and his flag waving, Dixie singing Confederates.
Since he is a UFM protege, I am very happy for CS !!!! Hopefully, this win will jump start their season !! Hook em Horns !!
Those comments provide an interesting window for recruits to see the other side of Buckeye Nation. Wow !! How disturbing !! I am not certain I would want to join a team "supported" by such a vicious fanbase.
Are Kentucky and Calipari next ?
I am taking the lesser of two evils, ND. Besides, I could never pull for Clemson, or any other juco in the deep South. Go Irish !!
Maryland football should go as well. Actually, Purdue played BGSU much tougher than MD, losing by only 7, while MD lost by (ugh) 21. I still root for Purdue as there are several coaches on the staff with Buckeye connections.
What is wrong with Warriner !!! Third and 3, your passing game is in shambles, give the ball to Zeke !!!! The announcers are just as befuddled as I am. Why does Warriner continue calling stupid pass plays when we have Zeke? Is Ed Warriner a clone of Darryl Bevel ?
Sorry but, Ed Warriner is definitely not Tom Herman. Our offense is regressing- poor execution and equally poor play calling- miss Mr. Mensa
UNFORTUNATE, BUT IT PROVIDES PT FOR OTHER TALENTED BUCKEYES. EVEN WORSE FOR HIM, IF HE IS REINSTATED AND THE OTHERS PLAY WELL, HE MAY NEVER SEE THE FIELD AGAIN THIS YEAR.
ROSE, SUGAR AND FIESTA BOWL VICTORIES !!!!!!
I love Tress ! I am so pleased that he is going to be honored. I wish the "powers that be" would end TP's banishment so,that chapter could be closed.
What a terrible bummer for TP !! The move is idiotic !! Well it makes it easier for me to root for the Steelers and the Bengals ! Good luck to TP !!!!
Such a comparison is an insult to the integrity of UFM. Urban is a man of honor and high character. The same cannot be said for JC, who is the ultimate douchebag.
For the UGA fan, the Bulldogs are 1 and 2 in their last three games against B1G bowl opponents. I live in ATL. Mark Richt is a good coach but, the UGA fanbase is delusional. They give the poor guy pure hell. The fans fail to realize that UGA will never be Alabama. The program will always be competitive but, never great. As for the UF fan, simply point out what UFM is doing in his HOME state and that all UF fans should accept that their program is once again relegated to pre Urban levels of mediocrity. Deal with it !!
