Comment 14 Dec 2012

I started reading this and was getting confused unitl I realized it was about basketball.  Time to move on to the next article..hopefully about football.  

Comment 10 Dec 2012

I never followed recruiting at OSU before UFM came to town but I must say it is really exciting to watch what this staff is able to do.  I'm not sure if it was like this with Tressel and before but I am extremely impressed with the talent coming in.  These are grown ass men playing grown man football.  Many of these kids are clearly the best player on the field on either team in the highlight videos.

Does anyone know how many recruits ND has? I saw numbers listed for the other schools but not #1 ND.  Not that it matters but I was trying to get an idea of if their rating was based on quantity, quality or all of the above.  

Comment 04 Dec 2012

I would rather see us get rid of divisions all together and just base everything on record.  That way the best 2 teams make it to the BIG championship game at the end of the season.

Comment 03 Dec 2012

It seems to me that the BIG and most of it's schools have been sitting back and living off their reputation over the last decades.  Other than OSU and scUM the rest of the programs have done little if anything to improve their fascilities or keep competative with pay for both head coaches and assistants.  Until the other programs start to give recruits a reason to go to their schools things will continue as they are.

Comment 01 Dec 2012

This is sort of what I expected to happen tonight.  I thought Wisky played us MUCH tougher than NE did this year.  It seems like Wisky got it together in the second half of the season.  They are playing a lot better football than NE after their rough start.

Comment 30 Nov 2012

Not only has Fickel done a great job with the defense the second half of the season, but I think his time with UFM will make him a great head coach down the line.

Comment 27 Nov 2012

That is one of the most impressive highlight films I have seen from a LB in high school.  Bass: you are right, the kid is a monster truck!  It sounds like he is pretty sold on the good guys at least for now.  Let's hope he stays that way and ends up a Buckeye.  He could probably come in and start as a freshman if he does early enroll.

Comment 19 Nov 2012

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this here yet but Rutgers is voting tuesday to become a memeber of the BIG.  They already have an offer to join, so there is little to debate about if Rutgers is going to be a memeber.  I say tomorrow Rutgers will become the 14th memeber of the BIG.  That leaves 2 spots to get some real sports programs on board.

Comment 18 Nov 2012

Our offense seemed as one dimentional as Wisky's did.  Everyone knew Braxton was keeping the ball and running on most plays.  Other than those plays we had the deep ball, but our recievers did little to get any seperation.  Unless we can find more plays like a short passing game or even a screen game with some option, the defense will always key on Braxton.  Give credit to Wisky too, their defense played a hell of a lot better than I expected.  Hopefully we find a way to pull everything together for the game.  Michigan has found a way to make their offense even better with Gardner at QB and Denard as a running back/wide out.  

Comment 18 Nov 2012

I am not sure that I woud say Tsun's Defense sucks.  Last I checked they were ranked 11th in the nation in total defense.  I am not sure how that can be though because I have thought there defense looked pretty average most of the year.  (Edit) Oh but I forgot to mention their run defense is terrible.  I think it's 58th or worse.

Comment 17 Nov 2012

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but who is El Guapo?? Where did that nickname come from??

Comment 12 Nov 2012

If WIsky is favored it is only because they are playing at home.  I still don't see this game being close.  They are way too one dimentional and slow.  It should be a big win for the Buckeyes.

Comment 11 Nov 2012

Ok forgive my ignorance but what is the BSD site?  I have heard it referenced many times on here and I don't know what BSD stands for.

Comment 02 Nov 2012

OMG I can't think of anything worse than a TV ban!!! What would I do? Wonder if you could at least listen on the radio or internet.

Comment 29 Oct 2012

I thought our defense played pretty close to lights out agains Penn State.  a huge improvement across the board from the entired defense.  If they can play like that the rest of the year I think we are unstopable. Other than a couple of plays they were damned impressive.  Having Boren at MLB has made a huge improvement.  Wait till we get the rest of the guys back and healthy.  We are also seeing big improvements from our freshmen rotating on Defense too.  Impressive turn around these last 2 games.

Comment 29 Oct 2012

I think the bigger problem this year is how bad the rest of the teams have looked more than that the SEC is totally dominant.  Outside of Alabama who I still think is closer to an NFL team that a college program, everyone has weaknesses.  Until the other conferences can field teams that looks more impressive the SEC will continue to dominate the top spots.

Comment 28 Oct 2012

So 2 of the next 3 teams we face (Wisky and Tsun) have injured quarterbacks.  Denard might be back but Wisky's QB is out for the year.  Should make our 12-0 season even more obtainable, although I would rather we beat them at full strenght.
