Love this guy. Did things right. Always smiled, punched people in the nose, knocked them on their rears, picked them back up, gave Glory to God.

Can't ask for anything more. Go ahead Little Animal.

So, was this a dig at TheOhioState's Coaching at the WR position?

"You can see the production they have out of the receivers," Clark said. "And as a team, they went to the ACC championship last year, and they know how to get their playmakers the ball.

"Watching film and seeing all the different ways they get the ball to the receivers, it's hard to say to (that)."

It was a pretty big "one thing"

But I would agree, I think Smith is one of the best ADs out there right now. And his attention all the sports programs is amazing. He also seems to have a genuine love for the student athletes.

Matta may be on a downward spiral right now, but he's a top ten US coach and he's done so much to improve the BB program that he deserves more than to just be swept aside for the 'next big thing.'

Archie going to IU was just timing.

I love the logo.

How do we get a Columbus team to get a Columbus logo without having to sell to a broader Ohio Market?

Columbus is Columbus and they deserve to have uniforms that reflect the city, not just a reminder that they're the Capitol of a greater entity and use the colors of the state (instead of the city) just because women like red, white, and blue better...

Anyways. I'm petty I know it. Go Jackets!

I agree with you. That was a different man in 2011.

You take away what he learned under Tressel, experiencing the shock of losing his mentor, to being thrown to Meyer who will demand the best of you, find it, and then pull it out of you - Fickell is posed to be something special

Meyer did say we're never going to have a gunslinger, long pass QB for his system.

Maybe this is the issue with JT? Maybe he's just enough pocket passer that it's hindering with his success? I mean, I doubt it since he was successful up until this year. I think JTs problems are more to do with young line, average WRs, really bad play call distribution by coaches and the bad habits that come with everything being unbalanced.

I think Martell will be fine. If not, he'll find a niche somewhere in the offense. I also think Forcier would have been more successful under Meyer's offense than what they were trying to do at UoM.

I know I'm going to get down votes. But I can't help comparing Tate's. Martell vs Forcier.

Martell (per ESPN) 125 Forcier was 144th. Forcier had had Scout Grade of 81, while Martell is at 83. Forcier was at barely 6'1, while Marttell is listed at 5'10.5.

My hope is that Martell is going into a better system and will be coached well by Day and Wilson. While Forcier did some good things from jump under Hoke but fizzled. Perhaps even Forcier would have flourished under a Meyer system, at least do a bit better anyways.

Anyways. I wish the kid well. He's not the QB I'm used to. But what the heck do I know? Not much.

Man - if he was going to be Oline. I would have liked him to be Oline for us. He's proven himself in that area. Nothing against Studwara.

I'm not sure what really happened this year on offense or who is "too blame." We had the issue last year and it seemed to be fixed after the MSU game. Why didn't it continue into this season?

If memory serves me correct, it was when Wariner moved up to the box that we believed the situation was fixed. Why is he the scapegoat now?
