Richt is the man! I gained a lot of respect for him when I heard what he and his wife did for two Ukrainian children with little chance of a future. http://vimeo.com/4731615

I agree that watching the game on the couch is nice. However, it was worth the $102 dollars I spent last year to walk out of the Big House in Ann Arbor and witness 85,000 depressed M!ch#g@n fans (the other 20,000 were Buckeye fans). That's some the the cheapest schadenfreude I have ever experienced! It was only $1 for every 833 depressed Wolverines.

Funny how you say that. I despised the UF version of Urban. However, I learned that my malice was very conditional once he put on the S&G. I love the man now!

Are you kidding me?!?! I turned it off when ND went up by 8 with less than a minute. I then suffered through watching "whale wars" with my wife.

I'll tell my wife about this and you'll have enough to purchase a server that will rival the NSA. Bad news for me, good news for 11w.

Comment 26 Nov 2013

I agree with Gary Anderson about Borland not being properly recognized as a finalist for the Butkus award. He (along with Ryan Shazier) is an amazing LB. That blew my mind.

I lived right between Tuscaloosa, Gainesville, and Baton Rouge in Navarre, Florida. I lived there during our losses to Florida and LSU. 

That was the worst! I couldn't go anywhere without getting harassed for wearing my buckeye gear. I still wore it proudly though.

Texas, please take Gene Smith. We can put in an interim AD until 20 Dec 2016 (show cause end date) then hire Tressel as the new AD! That would be a "kiss this" statement to the NCAA.

That punter for Northwestern could file assault charges against Roby for that block/hit. That dude went flying! Roby went beast on that dude.

Check out the view from the end zone. It is sick! http://btn.com/2013/10/07/video-bradley-roby-blocked-punt-in-slowmo/

It was as if I heard Coach Coombs on the sidelines, "What are you whining about...Roby was just stretching and you're a punter!"

Krenzel is like that old work truck. Nothing fancy, not shiny or fast, but reliable as they get and always gets the job done! He's truly one of my favorite Buckeyes! 

Comment 15 Aug 2013

"Should the Buckeyes then proceed to do the unthinkable and dethrone the mighty SEC from their accustomed position as rulers of the college football world, then there will be more hatred than ever seen before."

Joe, good article, but I think we will be surprised how many allies will come out of the trenches if we meet an SEC opponent in the NCG. Most people (other than a few media outlets) want to see the SEC streak come to an end. The anti-SEC sentiment is pretty strong for all those that don't live within two minutes of a Waffle House.

I am excited about this young man and what he can bring to Buckeye Nation! My only concern is I hope he understands he may not be the only QB in the class. Maybe he will and my perspective (some guy that knows very little about the inner workings of recruiting) may be way off. However, in a recent Ozone interview, he said something that caught my attention:

Ozone: What did OSU coaches say in regards to other QB targets like Brandon Harris? Will you be the only QB in this class? Collier: From what I know, it is just going to be me. They assured me I am their guy.

According to Harris (ref:11W "Brandon Harris Talks Ohio State" article) he seems convinced there is still room and Collier is NOT their only guy. Can someone smarter than me about recruiting tell me why the staff would say this to Collier while still pushing for Harris? I just hope (and will assume) Collier and Harris are given the same story. 

Either way, I have a feeling Collier is going to prove a lot of his "critics" wrong. Talent, coupled with work ethic and humility, go a LONG way!
