  • SPORTS MOMENT: The Buckeyes NC certainly is hard to beat, but I think I had 14 heart attacks that year. One great moment at a Buckeye football game was when my father-in-law and I were running late, and, as we were sliding over to sit in our seats, Ted Ginn caught a pass and ran down the sideline for a touchdown.

I had already had plans to meet up with some friends, but I will definitely check channel 221 when I get home to see if I have it.  That would be awesome.

Very good stuff.  Interesting that Kyle and Brady are the first two OL in this class to lose their stripes.

Comment 31 Jul 2014

It's difficult not to say Devin Smith, but it's almost an embarrassment of riches (or at least potential) at the position with Dontre, Mike Thomas, Corey Smith, Johnny Dixon, Jalin Marshall, not to mention Jeff Heuerman.  This really should be an exciting year to watch assuming the OL steps up and the DBs are greatly improved as expected.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

He averaged 8.1 yards per carry and 9.5 yards per reception, and most of his receptions were shorter passes.  Yes, he needs to get a little bigger and much better at blocking, but he was quite effective.  Opposing Defenses seemed to think he was dangerous or they wouldn't have targeted him when he was in the game.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

I'm sure I've forgotten a few players (like Worley), but I haven't forgotten that Bogard has had season ending injuries in his first two seasons.  I hope he fully recovers, but that remains to be seen.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

OL - This is the biggest question mark, but I do believe in Warinner to coach them up.  I wouldn't be surprised if they struggle a little early on, but they'll get it together during the season.  I think Decker, Elflein, and Boren will start, and the big question marks are who will start along with them?  Dodson?  Lisle?  Underwood?  Price?  Trout?  Jones?  Knox?

WR - We now have so much young talent at this position, I feel like it's about time for them to prove they're a force to be reckoned with.  Corey Smith?  Marshall?  Thomas?  Clark?  Dixon?  Samuel?

RB - Again, some quality depth here, although I expect EzE to be the primary RB.  Still, the competition should be fierce.

QB - I fully expect Braxton to be more consistent.  He was fantastic mis-season 2013, so I'd like to think he can do that consistently.  I think the competition for the backup will be fierce, but my gut feeling is Barrett will win that spot.

DL - Exciting young players with a new coach.

LB - Again, we need some of the young talent to step up, but the depth keeps improving.  Perry may be a lock, but I think Grant will be challenged.  Mitchell?  McMillan?  Johnson?  Williams?  Booker?

CB - I think Doran and Armani will need to be beaten, and I do still feel both can and will improve.  Still, I think Apple, Conley, and others are going to make it very competitive.

S - Bell, Powell, and Burrows.  That sounds like quality to me, and there will be some good depth building behind them as well.  Plus, they have a new coach to prepare them.

I'll be curious who calls the shots on D, but I'm optimistic it will greatly improve.  I feel confident our coaches will have our guys prepared and ready to play.

Comment 24 Jan 2014

I'm definitely looking forward to the competition at RB this year, but I would agree with many others that EzE will end up being the primary RB.  Should be fun to watch.

Comment 22 Jan 2014

Personally, I think Perry may be the most likely to keep a starting position.  I'm not so certain about Grant, plus he seems to battle injuries regularly.  Regardless, I think the competition for a starting LB spot should be quite intense.

Comment 22 Jan 2014

I wish Marcus the best and hope he gets things straightened out.  At the very least, I'm sure the staff will give him conditions that have to be met to earn his spot back on the team, but I guess we'll see.  I sorta hope this won't get him kicked out of school.

Comment 22 Jan 2014

I'd like to see some of the young guys step up and take the open spots.  Guys like Dodson, Lisle, and Price, and it would be quite a story if somebody in the 2014 class earned a starting job.  I do think Decker, Elflein, and Boren are basically guaranteed starting spots, but who knows.  The Spring game will be fun to watch.

Welcome, Brady!

His film cracks me up a little because he is literally blowing those kids up.
