Night games against highly ranked OOC opponents that were close until the end make for a crazy loud Horseshoe, maybe the best environment in CFB.

Blowouts against MAC teams feel more like a midseason baseball game, like a picnic. Oh, there's another touchdown, pass the watermelon please.

Close games against underdogs and the Shoe becomes as quiet as a cancer ward.

Obviously, any 2017 commit is going to be a bit iffy, but one reason I like our chances better than most for a commitment to stick is this:

Also meant to point out that the Buckeye DL is the only ranked unit in the B1G.

I can't believe I'm about to recommend this joint, but Joe's on Weed St can have a pretty lively atmosphere.  When I used to go there for game days --a while ago, I'll admit-- the thing I enjoyed is that it wasn't a Buckeye bar, just 120 screens playing every single game that's on.

You know the jackass down the street who started wearing a Red Sox hat after they won the World Series? That's you if you start pulling for Chelsea or Man City.  You know the other guy who always used to brag about what a big Yankees fan he was even though he'd never been to NYC? You notice how he wears that hat a little less lately? That's you if you start supporting Man U. Of the big teams, that is the four, maybe five teams that have a chance of actually ever winning the EPL, Liverpool is the most respectable choice. They also have a fun team to watch even with Suarez gone this season. Personally, I just enjoy watching the games, and usually root for the underdog. Go Wigan!!!

The only juniors who might get drafted after this season would be Noah Spence, Taylor Decker, and Joshua Perry (if he has a breakout season).  Of those guys, the only one I see possibly leaving is Spence, and while losing Spence would be a blow, it's a position that Urban has recruited well.  Who knows, maybe Josh Sweat will be competing for that opening next camp.

Whoever is our QB in '15, I feel pretty comfortable saying this: Buckeyes will win the CFB Championship! As soon as Vegas sets down the odds, I'm setting down my money.

As far as football goes, Saturday will still be Saturday. The Buckeyes will take the field in less than two weeks and it will be glorious. The season might not reach the level many of us had hoped, or it might surprise us, but for us fans it will be football either way, a game we enjoy watching once a week. For Braxton Miller things have changed in a far more significant way. I hope he can recover from this, and I hope to see him get a chance again in '15, but really I'm just thankful for all he's already contributed to Buckeye football, and I wish him well in whatever comes next for him.

This was open pretty much all season last year.  Hopefully we force defenses to try to stop it this season:

Comment 16 Aug 2014

[The Buckeyes] gain a variety of weapons, some of which may be spectacular and some of which may flop. 

While this is undoubtedly true, the Buckeyes have so many weapons coming in that we'll be able to absorb the flops.  There WILL be play makers at X, Y, Z, and H this season.

As long as Narduzzi is there, MSU will have a tough D.  Nevertheless, that D will take some time to gel and if they haven't by the time they reach Eugene, they'll be in trouble against an offense that returns nine starters including one of the preseason Heisman favorites at QB.  Rooting for Sparty, but this game happens too soon for them.  They'll get down early, Connor Cook throws a couple of interceptions, and Sparty goes down hard, 41-13.

Comment 16 Aug 2014

I still think it's very unlikely that two SEC teams get into the playoff, but the most likely path I see involves the B1G and the Pac 12.  First, Oregon beats MSU easily establishing the weak B1G narrative from the start of the season. MSU goes on to beat OSU and win the B1G, but the B1G is weak is already beaten into everyone's head. Meanwhile in the Pac, Oregon or Stanford, it doesn't matter which, goes on to the Pac 12 championship game and loses to a two-loss champ from the south (USC or UCLA could both fill this role).  A two-loss Pac champ wouldn't be too hard to pass over, and you can't exactly take a one-loss runner-up ahead of the champ either.  Finally, in the SEC west if any of Alabama, LSU, or Auburn  finish with only one loss, and that loss is on the road to the eventual SEC champ, both the champ and a one-loss SEC team look like easy picks along with ACC champ and Big 12 champ.

Didn't think it was worth a separate post, so I'll just put it here, but Bucknuts seemed to imply that DT Elijah Taylor is still on the Buckeyes' radar, and might be a candidate for a flip.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

Well, I'll give it a shot if he won't. Hoke's players are soft because Hoke feeds them a steady diet of unearned entitlement.  Little sugary bites like we are Michigan, or we just have to play Michigan football are empty calories that feed the ego, but do nothing to build the body of a team.  Keep having BBQs, keep recruiting on the achievements of players who played with leather helmets, keep beating the drum of the mythical Michigan Man and letting high school kids run their mouths about how great they will be One Day, and by all means keep losing to Little Brother and Ohio.
