I think those 11W rocks glasses are getting some frequent use...respectfully disagree. Defense stuffs Navy.

I know they were #2 rushing team in the nation last year, but versus this schedule?

Indiana, Delaware, Western KY, Air Force, Duke, Toledo, Pitt, Mighty Notre Dame, Hawaii, South Alabama (is there campus on an old oil rig platform in the gulf?), San Jose State, Army, and Middle Tenn State in the bowl game. Not exactly a murder's row of top CFB run defense...just sayin. 

Again, the gut says domination, both sides of the ball.

GO BUCKS!

Very good suggestion...thank you sir!

Comment 29 Aug 2014

I am taking a kool-aid bath, and it is refreshing. Sticking with my 11W hat winning score of 45-14, and not because I had to pick a score that wasn't already posted, but because I really think this team is going to explode...and Navy is in the way.

As long as the O-line gives Barrett some time, I think our athletes will just dominate the game. Meyer will not take his foot off the gas, so no repeat of 2009. And the defense will stifle the triple option.

My gut just says domination.

GO BUCKS! Beat Navy!

Yes I did, and it was most surprising.

Comment 29 Aug 2014

The most annoying moment during the SC v TAMU game was when they advertised the network and used the SEC SEC! chant. Really? I can understand when a bunch of drunk SEC fans with century-plus, old identity and esteem issues break out the chant, but a national media conglomerate (E$ecPN) including it in their marketing is pathetic. Hey, I know, maybe Tebow & his pre-game buddies can all wear confederate flag togas instead of suits that are one-size too small..??

Thank the maker that I was born in Ohio, cradle of coaches, US Presidents, confederate-stomping Generals, and home of The Ohio State University Football Buckeyes!

They did toss one guy for targeting, but you're correct, there were other hits that could have been considered similar to the Roby hit that were not even called. However, there were plenty of good, clean hits in that game...it was fun to watch.

Comment 29 Aug 2014

It was fun watching another vaunted $EC defense do it's thing...no wonder they put that game on a channel no one has yet...and I think Hill just threw another TD. 

On the other hand, Ole Miss was bringing the WOOD versus Boise. That was an excellent game until the 4th quarter when Boise finally ran out of steam. 

And then of course there was our new B1G brothers Rutgers getting it done against the Cougars...I think we can go ahead and pencil them in the Final 4.

Game Day eve...a little live HS football to pass the time this evening courtesy of the City League...then...

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BUCKS!

Oregon should pay attention to this game in order to correct their uniform selection malfunction syndrome (USMS).

Those Navy unis are definitely nice, and will look even better chasing (presumed) Scarlet unis into the end-zone all day.

GO BUCKS!

Thanks man, that actually made sense...not that past articles didn't make sense, but operator error usually occurs when I try to dissect football past defense/offense.

You had me at crabby-cheese...welcome aboard Maryland.

Comment 28 Aug 2014

If Howard had not been blessed with superior athletic ability, I doubt that he would know thing ONE about beaver (juice).

Comment 28 Aug 2014

I don't care about margin of victory; I'm just hoping Ohio State gets out of M&T Bank Stadium healthy and with a W.

Great minds think alike...or at the least we have similar end-goals in mind for the game. 

Comment 28 Aug 2014

All three are pure cheese. I read somewhere that one of them gives out buckeyes to all the incoming frosh at the dorms, so I'll give him a thimble of respect. Otherwise, nothing to see here...move along.

Comment 28 Aug 2014

I talked the wife into getting U300 on U-Verse, promising to drop back to U200 in January. Rational: $15/month increase times 4 months equals $60. $60 is about $25-40 less than what I would spend at the bar if I went with the drunkards. Yeah, I'm that guy that opens the tab and buys rounds...there is a bronze statue of my Barnsey likeness outside of Citibank HQ.

U300 also includes a few other off the radar sports channels so I might keep it...just don't tell the wife.

Comment 27 Aug 2014

Few surprises here, but Bennett/Schutt and Dante Booker in the 2 deep are pretty unexpected me thinks. Regardless, what a freakin roster!

GO BUCKS GO BUCKS GO BUCKS GO BUCKS GO BUCKS GO BUCKS GO BUCKS GO BUCKS..GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Holy tap-dancin Pope Francis, Saturday cannot get here fast enough!

Comment 27 Aug 2014

When I was a kid, and you could throw paper airplanes, toilet paper rolls, and damn near anything that wasn't going to harm those below, this was how I spent my games. My dad, who was a professor at OSU and knew everything about Shakespeare, but nothing about football, would get season tickets for my sister and I. However, as much as I enjoyed seeing how far a paper airplane would fly from our seats in C-Deck, nothing was more fun than waiting for and then watching "the dancing guy". A few years later when the actual football being played was more important than paper airplanes (not to mention A-Deck seats by this point), I still looked forward to the Neutron man just as much as I had in my youth.

We haven't had a fan tradition in Ohio Stadium like him since, and we probably never will again.

RIP Orlas, you were the man.

Comment 27 Aug 2014

I for one am drinking the kool-aid. New year, new defense. Navy deserves respect on every level, on the field and off, but their own coach admits it in Patrick Maks "Real Warriors" post earlier, Navy is always at a disadvantage against teams like OSU in terms of athletes. I think that manifests itself Saturday and the Buckeyes roll. Navy won't quit, but the Buckeyes need to make a statement and prove this year's team is legit without #5.

GO BUCKS!
