I concur. When you did an 11W reach-out to find out what we want more of, I said Xs and Os, and 11W delivered, as always. Can't wait to see it all come into play on gameday!
Act like you been there. My wife is a Kansas fan, so I watched the Jayhawks vs. another OSU last night. You have a team in KU. Which has already won a 10th straight Big 12 title outright, and an Ok. St. team that has underperformed so wildly with a returning Marcus Smart that they rush the court after that W? It's pathetic. I suppose PSU has so few instances where they can actually do it that they've got to get their kicks in while they can, but color me unimpressed. There are a very few instances where it's warranted; I hope Buckeye fans don't sink down to this level of 'we beat a team that is ranked higher than us in this week's poll, we should storm the court' mediocrity.
Nor should there be. Everybody knows the stats from the WRs in the big two Ls. After Philly, there was nothing. We need guys to step up on the big stage. OSU has a proud tradition of WR excellence -- before that sick line-up in 2005 we had Terry Glenn and Joey Galloway and David Boston -- and that's just recently! Don't start nothing, won't BE nothing.
That ejection was bunk.
I don't care who it is. Someone get the Browns right. The Factory of Sadness is me on Sundays in the fall.
Insert 'schematic advantage' joke here.
I'll be honest. I was expecting a bit more of a tour for 'Inside the Locker Room...'
I guess highlights are highlights for a reason, but I'm astounded by the opposition's reluctance to block this guy.
Money money, money money. MONAY!
A couple years ago we hired some no-name I-AA coach named Tressel. It has far less to do with name than it does the track record of success.
Hubbard is criminally underrated. If he had just been focusing on football, he'd have been 5 star everywhere.
I was gonna make this same point, and then I saw it, so I'll second it. Imagine you're a Tony Brown, for instance, and you have Nick Saban and Bama, and Les Miles and LSU, and Mack Brown and Texas, and Urban Meyer and OSU coming hard after you, guys you watched win title after title as you were growing up, and now they want YOU to come play for them. They tell you that you're gonna be just like ________ who won championships and was drafted in the first round. Then you pick the lucky one, and that guy is psyched to have you and the others are sincerely bummed out.
The unique players, the real stars, are the ones who are able to wipe the slate clean (I think we have one in Kwon, btw) and say I'm ready to earn everything I want. Think about how many kids play HS football vs D1 college ball vs NFL ball. Most just don't have that mindset.
They are our big, huge rivals.
Let's try that again.
I'm getting shades of old Bill Clinton SNL at McDonald's:
'Donuts for students? Intercepted by Warlords!'

I agree on Saine -- it became obvious at the end that there were things that he did well, but he wasn't given the ball in the right instances until it was too late. I'll say this about him, though: had no wiggle. He had straightline speed for miles, but put something in his way and he was pretty helpless. For a big dude, I feel like I could count his broken tackles on one hand.
Good write-up! But, man, our offense. Hope this is the turning point after downing Wiscy-
I'm on my phone, and I don't have patience for all the typing I would have to do, but wow. Just, wow.
Oh nos! Will national media has to change its narratives about not having SEC speed? I scared.
2nd that! I get a little football-nerdy for all the schematic breakdown articles -- my desire to see what he can do with our stud d-line is running neck and neck with just watching LJS coach!
No one could understand how Arkansas made Solomon Thomas' top 5. Perhaps he really wants to play in that Chris Ash defense, and now he gets to, AND without having to go to Arkansas!
Go GET you an awkward manhug! Bring it on, Kwon!
Always like the technical stuff. Sometimes it's fun just to watch and enjoy, but when you have some of the innovators that the coaching staff does, it's great to be able to understand the X's and O's.
