There is something to what your saying SL. I don't really know him personally, but I read some of the stuff he had said in the past. I also don't remember him talking up Ohio State a lot while at ESPN prior to Meyer being coach. But this just may be a misconception on my part.  

He was a good RB. My take is that if had a bit of a different attitude. He could have been one of the greats.

Welp. I've been trying to score a couple from nike.com for a couple of months. Have been out of stock since like 5 mins into the playoff week.

So either they're masochists at Nike, or they just don't know their consumers.... or just don't care.

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?

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.

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.
