Out of curiosity, what makes you say that?  Given recent history and the reputation of our current d line coach, why wouldn't a kid want to come to OSU?  I was not the one who dv by the way.

How does Dodson effect the scholly count?  Does that give us one more to give or does he remain on and count against the 85?

Please just do us all a favor and transfer.

I loved reading some of the comments after the article!

Remy I went through something very similar.  My brother is a drug addict and much younger than I (21 years).  After our parents passed, he was 17 and a mess.  I did everything I could to help him including bringing him into my own home to get him out of the environment he was in.  I even had him arrested in court in order to get him help.  But it wasn't enough.  He went back to the life he was leading and no amount of intervention, cajoling, arguing etc. was enough and he continues down his path and I continue down mine.  I haven't spoken to him in 6 years.  I believe in my heart that he will either end up in jail or dead, so I have prepared myself and chosen to life like he already is.

Its like instead of rewarding the best coach each year, the B1G rewards the coach that sucked the least.  Its like "well we know that Urban and Tress are studs, but this coach had the fewest losses of the teams we thought were really gonna suck!".  They still suck, but not as bad as the rest of you.

I LOVE Spielman as much as the next guy, but he has ZERO college coaching or recruiting experience.  Beyond that, i don't want to see the Fire Spielman threads when hes not shutting every team out and every Sunday Morning quarterback comes out of the woodwork thinking they know better than him.  At this point, OSU needs a proven coach no matter what the position.  I'm not a Fire Fickell guy at all but I guarandamntee you that no one will be happy if hes out and a guy noone has heard of is in, OR someone with NO collrge coaching experience.  I think this D is coming around.  We're stocking the cupboards and building depth.  Pass defense has improved drastically, and the run D needs to wake up but we're gonna be fine!

Fire Fickel!  Geez...a young team on the road and you want to throw in the towel already.  I just love Buckeye "fans".  But yep I guess you told us so!  Great post!

Comment 02 Dec 2014

So that means only IU and Kent St. And scUM had losing records.  I'd say thats pretty impressive compared to alot of others!

Comment 02 Dec 2014

I was originally in the "fire Hoke now!" camp but honestly the program is a wasteland at this point and they really can't go any lower.  The recruiting class is a joke (7 commits I think) and no amount of coachin, no matter who you get is gonna pull it out in a year.  Save the money, take your time, let Hoke dangle around a bit and fire him Jan 1.  Then announce the coach whose career you've decided to ruin immediately afterwards.  I honestly have no idea who they would get.  I don't see a "big name" guy out there, and given the choice between Florida & scUM I would take the Florida job first.  Harbaugh isn't coming.  I don't think Les Miles is coming.  You've tried a non *ichigan man and you've tried. *ichigan man.  Neither way what?

Comment 02 Dec 2014

Great post.  I'm lukewarm (no pun intended) on Fickell but dammit the guy has done a lotof good things here.  I have to believe that Urban sees something in him or he would be gone.  I don't see Urban as the type of guy to hold onto someone out of blind loyalty (eg. The Walrus).  But, if he would take a job somewhere else, Durkin would be an outstanding hire.

Comment 30 Nov 2014

It's nice to see a lot of positive posts for a change.  I got really tired of coming here and seeing nothing but blame this guy and blame that guy and fire this guy and this guy sucks posts.  I'm all Buckeye and I'm behind Cardale and what we still have in front of us.  A lot of concerns this week but I'm gonna trust in Urban F'n Myer to pull us through!

The fact remains that whether they do or not, NOWHERE in the article does it say that black uniforms were approved for the U_ game.  NOWHERE.  you have taken two articles and interviews plus social media speculation and mixed them into what you hope is gonna happen.  Yes they probably will wear alterntes and yes there is a possibility that they will be black but your post is blatently false and misleading.

Comment 26 Nov 2014

I can't decide.   IF we would play Minn., and beat them for a second time I think we would need to beat them convincingly.  If we beat Wisky then I think we simply need to beat them.  Either way it is another victory over a top 15 team.

Comment 25 Nov 2014

The scU_ not having anything to play for stuff re_inds of how giddy Gee was when we finally tied the_.  A dark day...

Comment 25 Nov 2014

I get the Heisman only logic, but i believe there are several Buckeyes deserving.  Pace for one. Speilman. Keith Byars.  If Byars doesn't break his foot, he is a leading candidate for the Heisman in 85.  I don't think he gets the props he deserves since he really only had the 84 season on his resume.
