Urban is right on as per usual. There is only one way to change perception....."GET BETTER".

If it applies to the Champs, it applies to the Chumps rest of the B1G as well.  Urban will NOT let off the gas pedal and we are now ready for the best multi-year run in Buckeye football history!

I am beginning to think that it does not really concern Coach Meyer who eventually "wins" the starting QB position for this year.  Urban has stated that the QB is a product of those players around him.  Yes, basic skills matter but if your a QB in Division I football, you already have God -given abilities with a football that most of us only dream of having.  If then offensive line is great, you should be great.  If the offensive line sucks at pass blocking your not going to be as great as you should be. 

I can only conclude that ,indeed, the "system" played a large role in what occurred this year. l.  Braxton was good to above average but not great before UFM and company arrived on campus.  One back-up QB taking over seamlessly is one thing.  But, two back-up QB's playing lights out is a trend!  

This QB bone will be picked on over and over this year by the fans and media.  I don't think Urban is concernd as much as we are

Come  on now guys!!  We are duty-bound to protect these student-athletes from the two evils of unjust compensation and over exposure.

My Brother did.  He was a All City defensive tackle in Akron during the early 70's.  We both grew up loving the Browns and to a lesser extent the Buckeyes because we never saw them much on TV in the 50's and 60's.  He dropped out after one year of junior college ball.( it was the 70's ) although he made all conference and had offers from ND, Northwestern and some others.  He joined the Navy, met and married a Florida girl and ended up in Jacksonville.

When the NFL awarded Jacksonville an NFL team he collected all his Browns stuff, put it in a box and gave it to me.  I was floored!  He never looked back.  Of course, Browns never gave him a reason to.  He became a Gator fan too!  That, more than dumping the Browns, was strange but I think it was due to the fact that he never had any interest from OSU when he played.  Frankly, he was good but not that good.

He was ticked off when Urban Meyer left Florida and more so when he landed at OSU.   I visited him last October while he was is hospice and we watched a lot of OSU and NFL football together.  I only wish he would have made it to see the Buckeyes run because I believe he still had a soft spot for them and it was so unexpected when I think back to October.  

Sure do miss him.

The post -game presser revealed to me that Gordon and the other chump were in that first stage of grief....denial.. " It wasn't that the Buckeyes were really good tonight, we just didn't play well"  LOL

Comment 04 Mar 2015

This is sad.. Maybe he never thought of basketball as anything more than a ticket to a free college education.  That's his ceiling and how he plays the game.  No desire for anything beyond college ball.  His choice.  Unfortunately, fans want more.

Take into consideration that those kids born in 1998 would be unlikely to have any memory of college football during their first five/six years and the starting point is 2004 or 2005.  Yeah, TSUN's record has been dreck to that generation.

Grant is what college football is all about.

I watched him get burned when he earned his first playing time and wondered if he was ever going to become a serviceable corner.  Through hard work, he got better and better.  What was considered a weakness on the team became a strength and we are left wondering who will replace him.  Well done fellow Akronite!  Best wishes in the NFL!

Comment 26 Feb 2015

I like to think of it this way, Jordan was the best one-on-one player with Magic or Bird the best team player.  LeBron will likely overtake them both.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Concur.  The only point of reference we had on Cardale was the Spring Game in which both he and JT could not hit a receiver in the ass with a base fiddle.  I was afraid it wasn't going to end well.  What an amazing turn of events!  In my defense, I can only echo what Urban said at his press conference...."Didn't see that coming."...
