If we are good enough the third week, then we are good enough to go to the semi finals. 13-1
Yea, that is problem for us but he keeps bringing us up to reporters to the point that he said he cannot understand why reporters are connecting him to us. He made trips here and the last I read about him, he talked more about us than anyone while he was in California. He said the talent in our 2017 class is a big thing for him and to be apart of that kind of talent was huge. Who know?
I love the comment section where buckeye fans straighten that guy out on his reporting.
They been putting the breaks on him since he got on campus so it doesn't make sense to play games with him to motivate him more.
I was just reading where LJ said that removing black stripe was directly related to reps and because they were bringing him on slowly, his reps were limited by the staff and not his fault that it took so long. It wasn't a message.https://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2016/08/ohio_state_football_why_hasnt.html

Every Halloween we watched Halloween for years until they were older. Fond memories and they bring it up from time to time and watch it still.
True statement. But money rules.
You have a reason crow.
The difference being between OSU 87-2001 was that most of those years we were ranked highly but took it on the chin against UM. Hell some of those years we lost to UM we still were higher ranked afterwards. We were competitive and in the discussion. That was not the case for UM in this century. We will stay competitive because our state is a big recruiting ground with kids wanting to go to OSU. Michigan has some very good players every year but not enough to sustain themselves at the top competing against MSU and ND when they are down with out of state frecruiting. That's why teams like Nebraska struggle as did Oklahoma for a while or at least not what they used to be.
It SEEMS to me that it would be a lot harder to fix in soccer. How could you monitor how much offensive players spend across the mid line. Refs would have to decide teams are not playing by opinion with a penalty kick and boy would that enraged players and fans.
It was smart and it work. Good for them. But just like the 4 corners and holding the basketball, it could hurt popularity when they try to expand to places where they want to improve viewership. I will say Tresselball during our NC run kept me on the edge of my seat and I felt like I ran a 10k afterwards.
Just plain removing it is lazy and shows lack of imagination. They need to concentrate on better options first. My idea is for players to toe the line at the fifty and kick a specially made football that absorbs forced so it can only travel 30 yards. Players would be meeting at 20 yards from the kick and since force is mostly ruled by speed, force drops significantly. Defensive players would have to be careful not to be out of position so they would concentrate on position first instead of racing down the field. I also think there would be more onside kicks since you wouldn't give up as much field position. The point is that at least I have an idea whether it's good or bad which is more than the NCAA seems to have.
I heard, like South Park, they play sarcastaball.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlv6BrrxD_4
Good find. I was just highlighting what I read. The one I read was concentrating on since 2000 trend and that Sweden was adding to it. I'm certainly not a soccer expert and would have a hard time recognizing that kind of play other than a lot of defensive players in the picture.
She said what they were all thinking. Better to just shut up. I read an article not to long ago that Sweden was going to ruin soccer with all defensive play because most teams that aren't as talented will play the big stall game because of Sweden's success. This kind of suspension appears to me that they wanted to show the world they did something and nothing more.
Oxygen is a poisonous gas, just not to us. Methane is far more common.
I'm glad that was the last time I seen the run to the end zone defense. Florida would snap the ball and seven buckeyes would run to their end zone. I can remember Florida keeping drives alive by just dumping the ball of to the back out of the backfield with open field in front of him. Leak was not that good of passer to be that frighten of. It would have been better to get burnt a few times than not to challenge. I was concerned about that game after reading about Florida fighting for respect and Smith going to banquet after banquet to honor him.
OSU, Stanford, winner of Alabama vs LSU, winner of FSU vs Clemson.
And at some point we have to realize that it's his business and not ours.
Tennessee offers 45 minutes later. I guess all the talk about the BIG not up to SEC standards doesn't apply to recruiting in following our lead.
Enjoyed it. Thanks. Peer pressure at it's finest.
You are right. Something would have to happen to us for them to be our equal more than every so often. We are at a high level right now and still trending up. This class and next years class should keep us above them for the next 4 years. Their success will lead to continued success.
I just read on Birm's site that he missed 10 practices with a hamstring injury and he was behind the eight ball. They reported that it was a big blow for him making an impact this year, especially early and that he can't have another disappointing year because of the talent around him for the next few years is full of 4-5 star players. It's the first I've heard of this and I'm somewhat taken back because I really thought he was going to explode onto the scene this year and if this news is true(and I have no reason not to think it is), then I wonder about his future with us.
It's also possible that we are getting more and more used to having big time recruits.
