Impressive, no doubt. However, many of these records were aided by the extra game(s). Comparing per game or per play averages in a lot of these categories vs. historic benchmarks might shed more light as to how great a season it truly was.
If you don't get chills from watching this video, you are not a buckeye. Please check your pulse, son!

i would correlate those people trying so hard to get everyone to say jif instead of gif to the pompous sports announcers trying to get everyone to say "rbi" instead of "rbi's." At some point, the pronunciation becomes a part of the vernacular and there's no sense trying to change it. No offense of course, DJ ;o)
Dual threat but definitely more pass heavy. He had about 100 rushes on the year for 600 yards. I believe that was before yesterdays game. So he runs about 7-8 times a game for about a 6.0 YPC average.
heh, was just about to post the same exact pic. How old are we that we're discussing the kid's hair style? While you're at it, get off my lawn.
Heh. I must have skimmed that section. That is pretty hard to follow there.
I didn't really notice much. A couple missed quotation marks here or there but nothing that confused me.
I noticed the same. Not that players should be responsible for reporting concussions suffered by other players, but it does make you think. How do you keep hammering on a guy on the scout team knowing that he's suffering the effects of unreported concussions?
It's just a messed up situation all the way around. I don't know why someone would want to do that to their body when they're not even playing in the games, knowing full well the toll it's taking. Man...
Wow - Boom Herron showing off the 40 time on that run. He was a highly underrated back for us. Nugent responding well to the pressure. he brought on himself down in Cincy. Some good showings by the NFL Bucks this week.
Definitely agree. After last year, I hope the officials remember this and are prepared to flag those displaying similar thuggery.
I think Curtis is leaving room for the fact that Meyer's threat may be slight hyperbole. Meyer is prone to that, you know.
I think Meyer realizes how much not having Marcus Hall cost him last year for those last two games. He doesn't want to run into a similar situation this year. Meyer hates those skunk weasels as much as we do, but you gotta be smart.
Heh, notice how Meyer stops short of giving any credit to the coaches at Michigan. He lauds their "great" players and personnel while conveniently leaving out any mention of the scUM coaches. I might be reading into it but it appears to be Meyer's way of getting a dig in a t the UM coaches and their ability to do less with more.
This is an SEC-type article, I must say. Darn tootin.
Grammar nazi says please check the first line of this article :)
There is a certain amount of discernment that goes into it, I agree. If everyone in your section is sitting at a game vs. FAMU and the bucks are up 50, then sure, sit your butt down. Otherwise, stand and cheer!!
Sounds like double speak to me, they'll say one thing to avoid the outrage but then do another once you're in the stadium. I know for a fact there are ushers that will enforce the no standing "policy" and if you refuse (because afterall, there is no rule against standing) then they will call the authorities. Bunch of BS if you ask me.
Go Shelley Meyer. The voice of reason once again. She stood up for the fans on this matter and when it came to Spring Game ticket prices as well.
I think it's highly unlikely for Brax to be back for Spring ball given the 6 month unsuccessful recovery time on the first surgery. He probably won't start throwing until early next summer. He's not going to be in any rush to get back out there with his career on the line should his shoulder give out again.
Hopefully depth on the D-Line and Johnson's willingness to substitute frequently will help with some of the conditioning issues on the D-Line. It seemed Vrabel took more of an NFL approach and left the starters in but I think at the college level, this is a mistake - especially with the athletes we have on the line.
It seems our defense will be more aggressive this year which will be a welcome sight. I don't even care if there are coverage breakdowns if it means we're playing full speed, attacking the ball, and wreaking havoc on opponents. There were way too many coverage breakdowns last year while playing a soft defense so I'd like to think the change in scheme will help pressure the offense into mistakes even if we don't have all the mental errors cleared up due to implementing a new system.
