The hit was on time, wasn't late. The way he landed on him. Well, we may question that a bit. Food for thought for the youngster. How does he want to go down in history? He'll be good, but will it include a little dirty as well?
IMHO, The Ohio State Football Buckeyes should mainly be comprised of boys from the Balkans, and Picktown Boys.
That is all...
So, he's gone after this year?
This is why I respect Fickell so much. He never throws players under the bus, and always gives them all of the credit when the defense succeeds.
Any chance we keep Russell all four years?
I guess it's all good. We don't really NEED the gear anyway. :)
Just some points: I don't think the Buckeyes will be wearing these jersey next year. I see Nike just pumped out the old jersey with the 2015 Champion logo. If this is true, then it stinks.
I really want the Nike Platinum KO Chain Fleece Full-Zip, but these too aren't in larger sizes.
I don't think I need to send an email to some marketing dude at Nike since I don't believe they're oblivious to the fact that folks want these. This is just how Nike (and Apple) roll. They eff with you because they can.
Our answer to this, we want them. But we don't need them.
"Defense and careful offensive clock management is stupid compared to winning"
They're actually synonymous with winning. IMHO, they're just harder to accomplish than busting 50 points on an opponent. Especially, if you have gifted athletes.
Initially watching the NC I thought Oregon was just as good as Alabama. Then I re-watched the Sugar Bowl. No way Oregon is better than 'Bama. We make four turnovers against Alabama, we don't beat them.
I have to say though. We had some coaching mistakes against Alabama offensively and defensively in the second half that kept Alabama in the game. We rectified this against Oregon and went heavy on power.
1.) I'd like to see our RBs utilized more next year to keep the pressure off QB runs. Not saying don't run the QB, but use our RBs more.
2.) The Silver Bullets are back. Great job for our D-Coaching staff. I'd like to see Fickell finally and completely get his mojo back next year and make a case to take over another team. The BIG CG and the playoffs were an upswing for him, minus that hesitation to call time out against Alabama late in the second half. He should have been all over that and not look to Meyer.
3.) Regarding our QBs. I honestly think JT is our future. I honestly think Cardale should have gone pro. But then again, I don't know how exactly healthy both Brax and JT will be by Spring ball. So ... what the heck do I know.
Anyways, just the insomnia talking ...
I'm confused by the way both Apple and Nike view "supply and demand." They understand that there is a demand and they purposely don't supply. But, they don't suffocate product to make the customer hungry and then provide it later. They just don't supply the entire demand. EVER. OR, they keep the prices inflated even for outdated products.
I think they made only a 100 of the 2015 Ohio State Jersey they marketed. They've been out of stock since two hours into putting them on the market. All they have for sale now is size 'varmint' -
They will probably put another 100 hundred jerseys on the market to sell at double price next month - and that's it.
This is why folks buy from the Chinese websites. Their products may smell like petroleum, but at least they supply. And at half the price. And if you buy in bulk, the shipping is free. Now THAT'S Free market.
I was kind of scratching my head on this hire - mainly because I don't know much about Coach Beck.
But this tells me a little bit about his character and the fact that The Ohio State University Football program is most likely tops in CFB right now. He knows what's good...
Ultimately, I always want these guys to stay. Turns out they're pretty entertaining on and off the field (in good ways).
As a husband and pop, I can see these through an economic prysm. But then again, I thought to myself. Conceivably, he could ride the bench at Ohio State and still draft well after next year.
I'm all for a three QB system. Meyer will make it work.
I actually like the kid, so I wish him to the Steelers or the Cardinals. Places where he can ride the bench a couple of years; learn the system and get paid, instead of pushed on the field way too early.
Meyer doesn't wear hats. End of story. They should design a NIKE whistle.
33 million viewed this game. Nike made enough scratch.
Thomas fumbled Corey Smith?
I'm eating crow on that one.
This NC was a dream come true for me. Power run and TE play. We even had Cardale under center a few times. Made my heart go pitter-patter.
I thought NFF stood for Nigerian Football (Futbol) Federation?! What the heck. That's legit!
The 2002 NC Game I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, TX sleeping between my wife and my mom. (Don't ask).
I just remember reaching for the ceiling after Cie sacked Dorsey . I was able to grasp that game more for some reason. This year, I'm still in utter disbelief and shock.
Well he sure didn't run up the score against Michigan. However, Urban is getting smeared for that last touchdown against Oregon.
Everything looked like it was Rocky Balboa themed.
Eh. I had to stream it. I don't have cable.
Caveat. Hang out around Ben on the playing field, but not after work ... go to Church after practice.
I'm a Buckeye first. But I'm rooting for the BIG even if it's not us. See, that's the difference between us and them. We're humble, we have character, and we;re loyal. But well take you to the shed if we get a chance. But, no sour grapes.
Some of our co-leaguers - well they have some growing up to do.
For the all the holding they did, the least they could have done was to allow us that TD.
I will be honest - I work with an abundance of Oregon fans. I had to listen to their hyperbole and 'duck tape' all over the office. Monikers like, "We're glad Ohio State beat Alabama.'
It was sweet walking into work today.
The real crazy thing. After all of this, Michigan STILL stinks.
Best thing for him. Hang out around Ben for a few years and then jump in. I agree.
No chance. If anyone leaves, it will be Jones going pro. And I think it may be a smart move.
