Born and raised a buckeye, my dad taught me the fight song before I was one year old. My great grandfather helped build the shoe and they played Carmen Ohio at my grandpa's funeral. I am a major fan of OSU football and basketball. Go Bucks!

I would go with Samsung, definitely the best picture. Vizio would be a close second because of the value and the great picture that a lot of their newer stuff has. 4k TVs are getting cheap, might as well get one. I just bought a Samsung 4k 55" on sale and I love it. You will want a good refresh rate, which can be kind of confusing with the 4k TVs.

I'd root for just about anyone outside of the SEC to beat Alabama. Wisconsin is not one of my most disliked B1G teams, those would be scUM, MSU, and Penn State. I would love to see Wisky pull it off, and that would make playing them at the end of the season that much better.

Ginn was very, VERY fast - this is true. But I think the term "electrifying" more personifies Braxton Miller. I have never seen a man move like him. He can make anyone on the field miss with a change of speed, stutter step, juke, or spin.

Braxton will be getting hit much less throughout the course of the game as an H-back. Also, most of the time he is getting hit, he will be prepared for it - already in motion and going full speed. There is a big difference in this type of hit and the types of hits you can take as a QB. And like others have said, they will have to catch him first.

I have really high expectations for this team to be firing on all cylinders from much earlier on this season. I don't think there will be too many games where we don't score much like VT and PSU last season. I'm going with a relatively high 727 which is roughly 48.5 points per game over 15 games. This year should be one for the record books and I'm hoping we make a lot of teams look like Wisky last season.

There could be no greater season than if Braxton won the Heisman en route to a national championship IMO.

I don't think that TG will be doing any return work. With Braxton, Jalin, Dontre, Curtis Samuel, and potentially several others fielding - I think his playing time will primarily come as a WR.

Comment 17 Aug 2015

Braxton, can't wait to see him play again this year. Then followed by: Troy Smith, Ted Ginn Jr., Beanie Wells, Vernon Gholston, and Chris Gamble in no particular order.

My housemates and I loved the movie The Other Guys in college. Being that I have the same last name, the "Arnold Palmer alert" scene kind of stuck, and they all started calling me Arnie.

I totally agree with you. A lot of people seem to think that if Cardale is not on the field, then Zeke will suddenly become ineffective. I do not believe that this is the case at all. If anything I think the secondary has to be more wary of JT. Not only can he find an open man downfield like he did multiple times throughout the course of the season, he can pick the defense apart at all ranges and check down multiple targets. Cardale obviously has a stronger arm, but a lot of the deep passes he threw were basically 50/50 balls. Smith had to make great catches for a few. When JT throws a deep ball, the guy is usually wide open - which may occasionally mean they have to slow to catch it, or the ball is put right on the money to where only the receiver can catch it. Kid has a great touch and stronger arm than many give him credit for.

That's awesome! I had no idea. Actually sitting at work right now haha. Saw the headline pop up and signed right up!

If we are doing very poorly in a big game, I will often change my shirt and never wear it during a big game again.

I just tend to be of the thinking that OSU gets the shorter end of the stick when it comes to negativity. We have like the biggest fan base in college football, and that generates a lot of hate. We are not the only team that has been embarrassed when previously praised. I don't think teams like Notre Dame and FSU took it nearly as bad following their NC/Playoff blowouts. Even Oregon didn't get it that bad from the media after losing like they did to a team that had four turnovers, was the lowest seed, and on their third string quarterback - and they have never won the big one. It was totally clear that Oregon and FSU were not even close to good enough to beat us, but when we lost those two NC games we were just absolutely hounded in comparison.

I totally agree that we earned the reputation. I just think that we are much more of a target for the media than most teams. But I will take that extra negativity if it means only one losing season in my lifetime so far, more BCS appearances than anyone, and the first undisputed national championship along with (hopefully) many more to come.

As far as the TCU situation, they were down by ten to Kansas in the third. I think that is much less excusable than our game playing with snow in the coldest game of the year.
