How could Spence get back on the team? He is permanently disqualified per B1G rules, and it's not even a gray area.

Comment 17 Sep 2014

I think that's a pretty solid model. The only concern I would have with it would be what would happen to a team that's traditionally good but has an off year, or would that just be part of the system? Even if that happened, it would still make the conference race more interesting top to bottom, rather than just for the top three teams in each division. Although there would have to be some sort of concession for if Michigan got relegated that we would still be able to beat the crap out of them late in November.

Answer the question: Which of those four would you have back as our QB this year?

I'd guess most people would answer Smith, as I would. I'd say he was the best all-around QB of the four, being pretty athletic, but still having a very good arm and accuracy. Krenzel wasn't as athletic, although he was definitely tough, and while Pryor and Miller were clearly superior athletically, neither was on Troy's level as a passer, which is still the primary function of a QB. Although, oddly enough, I think any of them could work for the current offensive scheme, if not all exactly in the same way.

Harvest Pizzeria in German Village or on High st. just north of campus. Not sure how well it's known, although probably getting bigger. 

Also, Louie's Fusion Grill in Hilliard. Similar to Starliner as mentioned earlier, but a little nicer.

I'd estimate fewer than 20 picks as well as fewer than 36 TDs. Both of those stats have been inflated by a game. While he isn't likely to throw six scores again this season, he's also not particularly likely to throw three picks in a game either. I can't remember if he was at fault for all three in the VT game, but the last one likely wouldn't have happened if we weren't trying to haul down the field to score, and the one vs Kent State definitely wasn't his fault, so I'd take the under on the 20 picks.

It really is. If you look at it, there were 5 or more guys that were Buckeyes last year that either started or made significant contributions in NFL games last week. That is huge for one draft class and shows how much talent and experience we lost over the offseason. 

Comment 13 Sep 2014

These sort of games are enjoyable on occasion. It's nice to just chill and watch the Buckeyes just go beat another team out of the 'Shoe. That said, the most memorable ones are never shutouts.

Just put another 8 on there with tape. No one has to know.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

I'd like to see them at least give it a shot. I think they're about the same size, and it wouldn't hurt to try for a couple series, especially in this game.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

Have to agree with the officiating. That fumble was obvious enough that they should have called it and looked for the recovery on the field. Way easier to reverse a called fumble than the other way around. Then, their second TD came on the most blatant block in the back I've ever seen, with no call. Then we missed on a huge third down on another no-call pass interference. I'm sure we got away with a little bit too, but I didn't see any big plays that we got because of a no-call. Just needed one of those FGs too, or Corey Smith catching a couple of his drops, and it would be a totally different game. Not saying the Buckeyes played any sort of great, because they didn't, but that was a winnable game.

Now I want to go to an NFL game just for the food. 

Comment 05 Sep 2014

If he continues to improve and stays healthy, he ought to be the highest Buckeye draft pick in years after next season, or the one after if he decides to stay for four years.
