It breaks my heart to see Noah like this. But Noah is a strong kid, both physically and psychologically. He has the support of the greatest teammates and Coaching staff one can have. There is no question his star will rise in the 2016 season. Get well soon, Noah. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Agree with you. Brown was poised to become a very important player. It hurts to see this after all the work he put in.

Comment 26 Aug 2015

Love both guys and we really cannot make a poor decision at the QB spot. Still, I wonder if Cardale's ability to blow the top off of a D isn't just what the doctor ordered against VT... Probably a foolish question, but any chance JT starts in some games, Cardale in others?

At least where TTUN is concerned, I never let the hate go to begin with. Until they die in obscurity and mediocrity, the hate will be there.

Liberal amounts of alcohol in the locker room? Sounds like a plan for success!

Comment 24 Aug 2015

Well, at Rutgers he may finally not have to worry about the depth chart anymore ...

Phi, I concur with the above comments. This post is excellent, easily one of the best I have seen in a long time. I look forward to reading your assessment of the VT offense.

Comment 24 Aug 2015

Anytme I even glimpse that USC logo or hear that "fight on" cry I can feel hate encroach upon me until it fills every part of my conscious mind. We have owed those dudes a serious butt-kickin' for sometime now. Maybe this year will be pay-back time.

Comment 24 Aug 2015

You are right about wire-to-wire being difficult. So is repeating. But do not fear, Ohio State will do both this year.

Comment 22 Aug 2015

I am not sure, but I think some rating services effectively "freeze" ratings of players with bad injuries. If they simply play less, however, I think they tend to get dropped. In Sammons' case, I think he used to be rated no. 4 in Ohio by 247.

Comment 22 Aug 2015

Man, Meyer really does have an uncanny ability to find the great ones. Could be (another) rating hike for Mack in the near future.

Comment 21 Aug 2015

Will never forget Ted Ginn, Jr., the greatest Buckeye, to me at least. Two of my fondest memories were 1) the punt return to the house when he was a freshman playing against TTUN, and 2) the 50-yrd. TD vs. ND with no one closer to him than 15 yards in the ND secondary. What a show of complete domination against hated foes!

Comment 20 Aug 2015

And what makes it even more annoying is that (if I am not mistaken) we were the no. 2 choice for all of those DTs you mentioned (Gallimore, Wilkins and Beckner, Jr.). If Jackson heads to UA, that would be another such case!

Comment 20 Aug 2015

If I recall Birm's Hurry Up on the decision, it probably does not bode well for us if he decides this soon, especially since his communication with the OSU coaching staff has slowed down. I never could understand how we can have such difficulty securing a blue-chip DT, considering that the situation for a DT cannot be any better than at Ohio State at the moment. Let's hope that Jackson selects the Buckeyes nonetheless.
