  • 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.

Hoke on Utah:

They're gonna have skill at the skilled positions where guys have great skill sets.

He is very skilled at the skill of using the work skill many times in a sentence.  He is an absolute dumpster fire in interviews and public speaking.

True we didn't try a lot last week, and it was frustrating.  But remember how little preparation J.T. has had.  Maybe the coaches know more than we do and were just fully aware of J.T.'s limitations while we aren't?  Maybe they hadn't practiced a lot of the plays we all WANTED to see.

I agree going forward, though...let's incorporate more screens, slants and quick shots over the middle in space.  If J.T. wasn't ready for those types of plays, get him ready!

Comment 12 Sep 2014

I'd like to see 2 things:

1) Defensive shutout (aggressive goal, I know).

2) If we have #1, this will be a big blowout.  My #2 then is for us to gain some confidence from that but NOT too much.  i.e. The boys better know they still have to go to work.  Kent State is just Kent State.  From here on out there's really no gimme games.

Upvote for all of you for the hate on PSU.  I can't stand them or their fans (most of them).  I hope Rutgers takes 'em out and I hope we hang more than 63 on them in their own house.

Perhaps Mickey Mitchell heard LEbron's pregame speech?  That wouldn't be a recruiting violation would it?  Why would Lebron have to say anything to potentially have influence?  Shoot, being on the same sideline as Lebron wiht no contact would be enough for Me to get fired up.

Awesome - preciate the update.  Especially when it's pointing to good news.

Mike...can you elaborate at all on why you think he's such a good kid (off the field)?  You mention that at the end of the post.  Thanks!  Great update!

But Urban has said they abandoned the run because VT was stacking the box and taking away the run.  True story.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

Well, good morning to you too!

(I never said the word/words "unhappy" or "not happy."  SImply asked about the possible reasoning behind not starting Spence.  Is it because Miller's been doing really well?  Or is it because Spence is on thin ice etc?  I then put in my own two cents stating that I think Spence is a beast and I think he should start...or are we not allowed to express opinions on a Buckeye message board?)

Happy day to you.

I agree with everyone else.  If you take out sacks, J.T. averaged 5.2 yds per carry and would have had over 100 yds.  His throws, for the most part, were beautiful and right on the money.  Even the long balls, which is something Braxton struggles with at times.

Now if you said that J.T. isn't as much of a home-run threat as Braxton running the ball, I'd agree. But J.T. is a talented QB.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

I'm OK with his responses.  He's still hopefull and looking ahead, but certainly not blowing smoke up our asses either.  Hopefully they go to work.

Very glad he doesn't give responses like Hoke gave after the ND game.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

THIS times 100.  We sounded exactly like TTUN's lame blog that we always call out for "imploding."  I actually saw some comments that called for firing Urban (those may have been exaggerated, but still...)

I'm on board with strongly disliking Herman's playcalling (can I buy a screen pass please?).  But calling for Warriner to be fired?  Dude has worked magic with our O-line each year.  Replacing 4 starters that are now playing in the NFL is about as difficult as it gets.

It's one game.  One very ugly game.  Let's not all implode yet, folks.

I love Terrapin.  HAven't had their pumpkin beer.  Wish you could get it in Ohio....Terrapin's Rye Pale Ale is one of the most delicious things these taste buds have ever sampled.
