Excellent article. Hard to read about flaws of one of the greatest coaches of all time, but true and valid nonetheless.
Agreed. Watching your team win it all is amazing, but going through the teams we went through made it that much sweeter.
Skip Bayless blamed all SEC west losses on the fact that they all beat up on each other during the season, and that none of them except Bama had anything to play for, as the bowls they were in were just a mediocre consolation. What a joke.
Proud of the way in which we beat Alabama. It's clear that we played better in nearly every facet of the game. This was not a fluke.
Quarterback isn't the only position on offense.....
I really liked the different wrinkles we saw on offense Saturday. The playcalling was vastly improved from the game against virginia tech in my opinion. I know player caliber is different from team to team, (some things that worked on Cincy might not have worked for Va.Tech) but even so, giving the defense different looks always keeps em honest.
Offensive line has always been the unsung hero. From the eyes of a fan,When they do their job, you rarely notice them. I'm glad Urban gave them the credit they deserved.
Awesome write up. Defensive woes aside, it was awesome watching our offense operate so efficiently. Barrett really spread the wealth!
It was cool to see that Troy Smith was at the game. Dude has his act together and is yet another recruiter for the good guys. Definitely one of my favorite Buckeyes ever.
Thanks for the perspective at the end of your article, Chris. The dumpster fire that is Michigan football reminds us to be thankful for what we have! Count your blessings folks! And remember, Michigan still sucks the big ones!
Barrett played with poise last night. There's nothing better than watching a quarterback make good choices and distribute the football.
Dude played like a man tonight. Couldn't ask for a more efficient performance.
It really takes the joy out of the win when you get gashed on defense like we did. I'm happy, don't get me wrong, but I can't help but wonder what our team would be like with a lockdown secondary.
Well said Patrick. Although it was very nice to see our offense run their defense off the field, i know in the back of mind that our defense (particularly our pass defense) will keep us from truly being a contender against other top talent across the country, At least at this time.
Well played, my friend.
I know that I have a problem.... My name is Aaron, and I am a grammar nazi. To be fair, I am a sixth grade teacher.
It would actually be quickly enough.... I couldn't help it.
the last wmd reminds me of the movie Little Giants.....Good times
Just curious... What makes you say that we are losing him to UK? Not saying it's not true, just haven't seen anything that would indicate that.
Thanks DJ. I needed that.
I know this is off topic, but could someone post a GIF of Bert falling? It's been a rough day at work and I need a Pick-me-up.
I'm glad Urban shook things up on the defensive side of the ball. I would be surprised If Eli Apple wasn't starting across the field from Doran Grant. Throw in Gareon Conley and Damon Webb and we have a formidable cornerback presence this upcoming year. Guys like Lattimore will push for playing time too, making everyone better.
Great class. Urban's the man.
If you can't see the incredible man that we had as a coach for ten years you are just arrogant. Yes. He made a mistake. Yet, one decision, especially a decision to protect your players, should never be what defines him ESPECIALLY IN THE EYES OF THE BUCKEYE FAITHFUL. The dude is a good man and deserves at least a little bit of your respect. You're a buckeye for crying out loud.
I thought I read somewhere that Neal has an official date set to make his announcement. Did I read it on 11W and is that true? (I know its not anytime soon)
