  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

That was Damon Webb, I believe.

I would think rain would benefit us most, given MAryland's biggest strength by far is their air attack?  Whereas we've been pretty balanced on offense and the O-line and EzE have been improving.

Or...I'm an idiot and weather won't matter and our secondary better ball up.

I don't even know that I'd say they have a leg up on us.  They are definitely a legit competitor for midwest talent, no doubt.  But not every single top recruit is going to come to OSU, that's just the facts.  As someone above pointed out, we got two big wins recently over ND.

I'll agree with ND being a big contender for a lot of recruits, and the momentum they have is something, but nothing more than that.

Thanks for the update!  Was wondering about Josh.  Sounds like the visit helped us, but wasn't earth shattering or anything, since he's taking his time etc.

What are his top schools and where do we stand at the moment?

Their fans were pretty classless too.  When Brax got shoved out of bounds and slid into a big cart or wall or something head first, he laid there a tiny bit.  The fans were yelling "He's a pussy!"

Neat.

J.T. is so friggin accurate with his throws.  I don't know if Braxton ever will be that accurate (although he does have a pretty strong arm).  

J.T. is a heck of a lot like Troy Smith and maybe even better at similar points in their career (hard to judge because of stupid J. Zwick).

I predicted Troy's Heisman after his 2005 performance against UM...I am close to predicting a Heisman for J.T. also.

EDIT:  just to be clear I mean J.T. could have a Heisman any time in his career, not necessarily this year or the next.

I just fail to see anyone but MSU and maybe one or two more teams on our schedule being able to stop the freight train that is our offense.  I know, I know - Kent State and Cinci...but day-um we can move the ball.  And our O-line is definitely getting better.  Doing exactly what we should be doing agains weaker defenses - exerting our will.

I'll say what I said about the Cincy game...I'm more confident in our D eventually slowing them down, than I am in their D slowing us down.  And, hopefully, we fix some mistakes that were made and get better anyway.

I think they brought in the extra troops as a precaution...everyone knows, afterall, that it was Dubgate V weekend!  Fans were expected to be extra rowdy.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

Yep.  Their findings in recently deciding to stop investigating OSU all but said "Great job firing Jon Waters!"

EDIT:  I'll add that I'm sure this will be the biggest portion of OSU's defense.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

Yep, this was ALL done with Title IX in mind.  No doubt.

Hell, the Title IX peeps all but said "Good job firing Jon Waters" in their recent report upon deciding to discontinue investigating OSU.
