  • SPORTS MOMENT: the 2002(3) National Championship game. My friends and I had drank upwards of 25 buckets of beer at the Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe, and in the most unlikely upset of all-time, I remember the sheer insanity/joy/disbelief/we-did-it-ness of it all. That and the answers we gave to the poor tv crew from dayton that had the misfortune of asking us what we thought of 'The Buckeyes big win?"...

I snapped up their Oscar-Meyer-ish "Urban Meyer" shirt the minute it came out. Still gets a pop from OSU fans everywhere. 

Wish I would've pulled the trigger on the 'Miller: Champagne of QBs' shirt before they got shut down

Agreed. 

A general note of feedback site wide is that whenever re fencing a recruit for the first time in an article or post, etc, can you please add at least the abbreviation for his position? Would cut down a lot of confusion. Thanks guys

Cleverly worded question! Reminds oneself of the bright side of the situation.

 

Look, honestly having Vrabel coach at OSU at all was a luxury. I think he was always destined to coach at the next level and any time we had him was just bonus.

 

 

Vrabes, you will be missed!

Agreed. Brax needs ONE thing and one thing only: Reps. Reps, reps, reps.

 

He's clearly progressed from year to year, but he is NOT ready for the pros. Still not going through his progressions fast enough, anticipating the blitz, reading defenses etc.

 

just needs reps.

The Cooper years made Gollums of us all.

Comment 24 Nov 2013

Easy. On a day when it was clear early it had to get done one the ground, the offensive line gets their just deserts. I demand their names be forever enshrined in our memories of yesterday's game, #23

Comment 07 Aug 2013

Couldn't agree more. It's not about the lack of the right players I think, but lack of development. The Walruss did next to nothing with some able bodied young men. What he did (or more apt DIDN'T DO) is a crime not only to Buckeye Nation, but the football gods themselves!

Also, anyone prefer the Michigan State Spartan icon on the side of the helmets as opposed to the big S? I certainly do...

Comment 06 Jul 2013

Going to stand up for this, but I prefer Ohio State's current striping on the shoulders for one reason: It becomes THE Ohio State Buckeye Stripe, being repeated on the helmet and down the pant legs. If someone wanted to get greedy, it could even be on the top of some high socks (think chicago bears).

Of course my childhood/youth fond rememberances of the fat, wide, gray and white shoulder stripes of all those great OSU teams will never leave me, but for design asthetic, I prefer the simplicity of that one, unifying stripe that can now be used all over gods creation.

Penn State: Get the names off the jerseys. If you're going to stand for something then do it. The names (and am i crazy or do they have numbers on the helmets now?) are unnecessary when you're championing the minimalist approach. 

Northwestern: I prefer the old 90s Darnell Autry/Fitzgerald look (http://i.cdn.turner.com/sivault/si_online/covers/images/1995/1113_large.jpg)

Couldn't agree more about Illinois. Loved the 90s look and made it Illinois own. Now i'm lost.
