Football's the greatest sport on the planet; it's a religion brought on from my family upbringing. My second love is rugby, b/c I played in college; but I digress. My professional sports loyalties lie with all Cleveland teams, however, I grew up visitng family in Phoenix; so the AZ teams have always been second place. Should my Ohio teams ever play an AZ team I always go with my first love; the O-H, as I like to refer to it. My Alma Mater is Kent State; so I'll always have love for what their sports team accomplish. However, I grew up in a very large Irish catholic family that lived and breathed Ohio State football. So long before I ever took my first class at Kent, I was a diehard Buckeye fan thru and thru.

In my opinion, Twitter is bad for student athletes. Even with it being used as a recruitment tool. Just hear me out...or read me out. Whichever.

Let's say, hypothetically, it were the 90s. Before all the social media craziness. Jalin doesn't hear a word from anyone other than the coaching staff, his teammates, and maybe some close friends and family outside the game. They pick him up, dust him off, and get his head straight to give him the confidence to not make the same mistake again. Plug in 2014s social media circus and this kid is reading hate tweets from idiot fans. This can most definitely claw at a 19 yr old kids psyche.

Maybe I'm too old school. I'm 31 and do not have a twitter, nor will I ever. People talking online about the most random things happening in their lives on a day to day basis is kinda strange to me. I have Facebook and I think it's OK. I use it to keep in touch with old friends and family, but even Facebook is too much sometimes.

The problem will always be there. It's something else a coaching staff has to focus on, all-the-while pulling away from their coaching duties. Because in addition to picking the kid up after the actual fumble in the game. Now the coaching staff has to deal with aftermath of the Twitter-verse backlash against the young man. It's a shame, really.

Keep your head up, Jalin. Don't listen to the idiots! Go Bucks!

Ahh, I see what you did there...

If that should happen, I'm sure Gopher fans won't take it EzE...

I'll be here all night, folks.

I'm fucking sick of MSU. It's time to put up or shut up fellas . I'd really like to see our guys play physical and kick some ass Saturday night. 

Dantonio is starting to get on my nerves as is the entire MSU football team and fanbase (they're cocky and disrespectful). The Buckeyes need to make a statement. That is all.

This sucks, but I think we all know Rod has run out of second and third and fourth chances. I hope he can get his life together and turn this horrible negative into a positive.

That said...next man up. Dunn and Samuel need to step up their game.

As to the others speculated to be involved; lets let the truth come out and then we can talk.

Lol. Wow. I love my Buckeyes and all, but I've never reacted to a loss like that. I did, however, put my head through a door when OSU lost to PSU in '05 (just the classic, intoxicated, dumb 21 yr old)...so...yeah, it was a little ridiculous. But I somehow feel the reaction to her team losing is far more obnoxious. Mine was just idiotic, but good for a laugh that remaining year of college.

For the record, it was one of those cheap balsa wood doors every landlord that owns a home in a college town installs because of idiots like myself. If it were solid oak I'd be dead; or at the very least possess the mental capacity of say...Brady Hoke.

The best part is the smile on Coach Ash's face while Coach Coombs is going f*cking nuts. So awesome. Coach Coombs is insane and I absolutely love it!! ... Probably because I was a little crazy in my playing days. Shit, I still am a little bit.

Yeah, that pic was immediately saved and set as my laptops background. Best catch a Buckeye has made this year.

Any shot of a two QB system next season? Maybe something similar to Tebow and Leak? Braxton has the freak athleticism and Barrett possess a great ability to distribute and read defenses (yes I know it's just Kent, Cinci, and Maryland we're talkin') but for a red-shirt freshman I think he's performed admirably.

We all know what Braxton can do, but if Barrett, as well as the rest of this squad keep improving from week to week and manage to make run at this thing; it'd be hard to just bench him next season. Braxton plays no matter what, but if Barrett leads this team the way I think he can, he'd of earned some pt as well in '15.

This team has improved since VA Tech.. However, I still haven't seen enough to convince me of them beating MSU on the road. I'm not saying it can't be done, they're just not there yet. I think this Maryland game will give us a better barometer of where this team is. Go Bucks!!

Dude has a bright future that's for sure. Was it just me, or did he look like he was about 35 yrs old?? Random, I know, but the first time I saw him with his helmet off it took me by surprise.
