Tajh Boyd dropped 500 yards and 6 TDs on us, and I'm pretty sure he just sold me car insurance. Jameis would have double that.
I'd even go so far as to call him a hurtin' buckaroo.
The team was in position to play in the BCS Championship, but an upset loss to Michigan State derailed the national title aspirations
Sparty did us a favor. Jameis and Kelvin Benjamin would have absolutely shredded us - a third straight faceplant in the NCG would have been a black eye and possibly set back recruiting.
Or the actual roster, which is sortable by every column: http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/osu-m-footbl-mtt.html
I know its blasphemous to look past this year when the season is about to start, but I can't help but look at all those "FR" and "SO" and think about how absolutely loaded this team could be 1-2 years from now.
9 out of 22 starting spots. I don't know why I still read these like they're going to be some kind of revelation.
Brown with one career catch? Samuel with his 130 rushing yds last year? Booker who has never starter? Let's pump the breaks here.
Care to share your top 5 then? I'd probably go Watson, Fournette, McCaffrey, Myles Garrett, Derwin James.
I have no idea how you can argue Fournette is overrated. He had about 2000 rushing yards with a shortened season and awful QB play to support him.
Unless the girl decides to hold a press conference about it, I don't think you're getting any more info. All we can do is trust that the process worked: they each told their side and an independent body ruled. Urban may not like it but he's far from objective in this given his vested interest in the outcome.
We'll probably never know for sure if TG was wronged or if he's getting what he deserves.
Gee put his foot in his mouth too many times for the board to keep him.
62 is nice, but I care less about max distance and more about consistency. Neurrnbergers 65% leaves a lot to be desired.
Maybe they think he's a little small? He's listed as 6'3 295. Mangold is 6'4 307, Alex Mack is 6'4 311, and Corey Linsley is 6'3 301. Not a huge difference, but these guys are paid to care about that kinda stuff.
Oh good, I was hoping we'd have to replace most of our secondary again next year.
You did a better job explaining my position than I did. I wish you luck in not joining me in DV-land.
Love him or hate him, I think he definitely has his finger to the pulse of football fans. He's not an idiot, he knows what to say that will rile up various fanbases. He can say "the SEC is better than everyone else" and fans of the other conference will whip into a frenzy and SEC-fans will puff their chests.
Good lord, this thread has turned into a tire-fire.
If we're within 3 points of BG we've got much larger problems.
Caught cheating in syllabus week, obviously.
I didn't speculate on anything - it's already a fact that he was suspended for violating the code. I provided no guesses as to what the violation is.
Yes. He was suspended for violating the same Code of Conduct that 50,000 other OSU students have to follow. Carving out special treatment for football players is what sends you down the path of any number of unseemly headlines we've seen regarding other schools. Urban works for the school, not the other way around.
Yea! Screw those stupid people and their "code of conduct"! Lousy university interfering with the football team....
I'd be more upset by this, but honestly Das Boot isn't that good. Let's see what the new kid can do.
""Obviously I like less than more but players voted it."
Now I'm confused how the vote works - I thought the team just voted to fill 2 or 3 extra spots. Maybe there was just a 7-way tie?
As both a fan of the team and an alum of the school: Good. Tough luck, coach.
