Buckeye fan born and raised in the South with Midwestern cooking and values! It's been hard at times in the past decade, but I am looking forward to many successful years under Urban F'ing Meyer. Despite attending a southern university (tOSU just too expensive out of state), I will ALWAYS be faithful to the Scarlet and Gray of THE Ohio State University!

*EDIT: Looks like I should have refreshed before commenting, beat by half an hour :(

Also, it might be moreso a case of him wanting to get back out there. There is the option of look, if you continue playing football for the next couple years, you could do some serious harm to yourself. However, you have this one chance before you hang up your cleats to go out there for a few games and win a national championship with your brothers. I would jump at that opportunity if I knew that this would most likely be my last season and it wasn't a case of immediate, one more hit and you're done type of scenario.

Having experience as a patient and from my sister as a Physical Therapist, everything I've heard is certain workouts, such as running, are truly terrible for your body and can really degrade different body parts. That said, this could definitely be huge and could lead to future applications to limit as much arthritis in the body as possible!

I believe the gold and black were to further and obnoxiously advertise the playoffs (whose official colors are gold and black). Also, doesn't hurt in terms of them trying to squeeze out every possible dime and not having to have two sets of confetti.

Welp... I'm depressed now. Is human hibernation still frowned upon by society?

Comment 29 Jan 2015

It's a shame to see a talent go elsewhere, but at least he provided the staff with enough time (be it through telling them or just giving them the right vibes) that they have been in more contact with Arnette (sp?) to hopefully replace him. Wish him the best of luck moving forward, just not against us!

Comment 15 Jan 2015

If I recall correctly, just yesterday Mike Thomas, when talking about his feelings post-Championship, mentioned that he isn't very emotional about it because he knew it was going to happen and is really just ready to go out there and do it again. Don't think someone who is leaving would mention wanting to get another ring next year.

Comment 14 Jan 2015

For Ohio State, the largest revenue to keep track of would most likely be liscensing and such from all the merchandise selling for having won it. Also, can't put a dollar sign on the other "paydays" from recognition (i.e. donors/alumni throwing money at the school, students/recruit choosing Ohio State, etc.).

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Having watched of few of his latter games this season, I would definitely say this is possible. Even during one of the games (maybe the Pac-12 Championship?), the announcers were talking about how he doesn't throw many interceptions, but has at least a few every game that should be intercepted but are dropped. Not sure if it is an indictment on the Pac-12 defenses, but from watching the games, I can definitely see it. Even against FSU there were some extremely easy, dropped INTs. I think our guys will have their chances, especially with the level of intensity and energy they bring, and wouldn't be surprised to see them come down with a couple.

Comment 05 Jan 2015

The FSU defense was gashed by their own offense. They performed very well for most of the game, but once their offense starting screwing them over, they not only got tired from quick turnarounds, but they lost their edge and will to fight. Either way, the easiest way to stop the tempo is 3-and-outs. Doesn't matter if they only have 8 second between plays if they can only get three out per drive. 

Comment 05 Jan 2015

Great! Now you've gone and jinxed him and every kick against Oregon will go out of bounds! Thanks, buddy...

I was overall very impressed with his kicking. Between his consistent drops within the 5-yard line and C. Smith's missile-like approach to taking out their returners, our kicking game was quite impressive all night. 

Comment 05 Jan 2015

I would take our DTs. Not to say they had a poor game against 'Bama, but Oregon's offense is largely built on the read option so, as always, we need to be able to take the dive out of the game. If the DTs can handle the middle without the need of the end to crash down, Frazier/Miller/Bosa would then be freed to key on the QB, thus eliminating the read option. If not, then I would take the Outside LBs/Corners to be able to come up on the edge and take out the outside run threat.

Comment 05 Jan 2015

^This. I remember at one point thinking Bosa wasn't doing anything and getting upset. Once I started actually paying specific attention to him each down though, you find he actually was a large part of our success. Did he put up numbers? No, but he did get some important pressure (forcing sacks as mentioned or errant throws) and did a solid job of taking on blockers and forcing the ball elsewhere, allowing other players (e.g., Lee and Grant) to come up and make the play. Would love a bigger day statistically from him, but he definitely wasn't nowhere to be found.

Comment 23 Dec 2014

How would the 'Bama offensive line compare to Wisconsin's? I know Wiscy has always had a solid line, and given the way our boys handled them up front, I wonder if it shows any sort of comparison in terms of our ability to reset the line as you mentioned. Of course, this was also benefited by the one-dimensional nature of the Wiscy offense, but any chance it shows our one-on-one matchups, or is there a more fitting comparison this year?

Comment 22 Dec 2014

Same thing happened to me for the Orange Bowl last year. Bought them at around midnight the night before the game. I agree that it is most likely the cut-off for physical delivery.

First look at away unis. See the tweet link or comment on other topic below.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Yes, I think depth is key, but I also think at least some of it comes down to the mentality of not being intimidated by Bama. It happens a lot with the underdogs where, despite how much they may try to convince themselves otherwise, they are almost expecting to lose. So when they come out and have a solid game, either winning (Auburn) or keeping it close (Mizzou), all it takes is for one quick change of events when Bama takes the lead late and the players can almost quit on themselves in the sense of "Yup, I guess it was only a matter of time before they came back... well it was fun while it lasted..." Obviously, I can't say this always happens, but as a spectator, too, you feel it happen. When Bama finally started to come back against Auburn after they left them hanging in there for so long, I knew to myself Auburn was going to lose that game. It was only a matter of time. Same could be said for Mizzou. 

Long story short, depth is key, but as they say: "Everyone has a plan until they get hit in the mouth." Don't underestimate the mentality of them being no better than us and being able to respond to the inevitable punch in the mouth.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

Very interesting, and I think very possible, idea about Brown. I remember seeing him in there and my first thought was, "Oh, Philly is back in the game..." After a brief moment it occurred to be that good ol' Philly wasn't even on the team any more, let alone in the game! Though I felt like an idiot for a second, it oddly put a smile on my face seeing Noah in there. He's got the tangibles to make something special of his career, and it was just pretty cool to see him get some PT, like you said. 

Comment 14 Dec 2014

I do like that we will, statistically speaking, be the best offense Alabama has played against all season, whereas contrarily, we've played two better offenses than Alabama, shutting out one in the conference championship game and basically manhandling the other during a night road game (if it weren't for early miscues, that could have ended very similar to the CG). Obviously, these numbers don't tell the whole story, but still interested to see.
