Ohio is pretty high on the pride list, but I grew up in Texas and I haven't seen a state more prideful of itself 

Texans consider themselves their own country anyway, so maybe that is why they aren't high on this list?  Anyway, Texas Longhorn students sing the state song in the last quarter of every home game, so the state pride is pretty high there.  I took Texas history up until and through the 7th grade, and no one questioned it at all 

So I think 9 is too low for Texas, not that Ohio is necessarily way too high

Didn't MSU just sign the Washington DC RB that was workout buddies with OSU commit Hall?  I thought he was a pretty good player. Add in Larry Scott last year and it isn't like MSU is exactly 'thin' at RB itself.

I am not worried about recruiting when Meyer is the coach.  No reason to be as he is a proven winner on the field, and in the living room recruiting kids

There have been a lot of studies about how Winston was throwing the ball where he was supposed to, and the WR gave up on the route or the ball was tipped etc

Count me in the minority in thinking that Tennessee will be pretty good this year and next.  There aren't many programs who have recruited as well in the trenches as them and the rest of the SECe is taking a step back.  UF with a new coach, USCe on the downslope, UGA new QB.  This is perfect timing for UT to come back

Yes, a college town revolves completely around the college.  That is why I have no problem with the rankings.  OSU could be 14th on that list and I wouldn't mind, because Columbus has a ton of other stuff going on.  It's not Miami or L.A., but it also isn't only about Ohio State all the time (in the fall maybe)

I thought Munger looked good in his play time last year, and so if you have he and Hale you are good with an 8 man rotation.  Not sure if Bosa is coming off the field, but who is his primary backup at SDE?  Lewis/Holmes/Hubbard all seem to be more WDE, but I guess Hubbard is big enough to play SDE a bit.

When I heard this I agreed completely.  I had McCain in 2006, and it was pretty bad IMO because it was just him trying to get votes

I think it is settling, but Archie is a great speaker who has one real love, and that is THE Ohio State University.  Most of these outsiders won't share the same love for the school that the graduates and Archie do

This just isn't true.  These kids all were high school studs/all-americans/top prospects. There is no way they were not looking across at this OSU team and seeing all those same level guys on our sideline.  

OSU and Bama were 2 of the top 3 most talented teams in the country this year, with FSU being the 3rd IMO.  Bama fans/players/coaches can just look at recruiting rankings to see the talent on this OSU team.

Just do a simple Go Bucks if you see someone.  Don't yell OH cause that is a chant primarily done on gamedays

Comment 15 Apr 2015

I'll be there with a few buds unless it's really nasty out.  A few showers I can deal with, but as diehard as I am, I don't feel like sitting in a monsoon for 3 hours for a practice

I really think OSU changing that game to week 2 when it was originally after a bye did a lot of hurt to OSU.  There is absolutely no way Meyer knew Miller would not be playing by week 2 when he made that change.

Using a lot of fall camp to prepare for Navy with a very young team made preparing for VT in one week difficult.  I truly believe that

Comment 15 Apr 2015

I never played QB or really any high level football, but to me it just seemed like Cardale was trying to get every yard he could.  He knew there were 3 guys around, and if he slid he may have done so awkwardly (I've never seen him really slide).  Collins was the smallest of the 3 guys around him I think (I believe the other 2 were LBers but could be well wrong), so he went for it, like Maverick in Top Gun 

Comment 14 Apr 2015

Kind of how I feel.  I won't be surprised if he finishes his contract now (without extensions so 2020) but anything beyond that seems difficult to predict.  He has already burned himself out once, and that really occurred after he started losing assistants.  See 2015-2016 OSU where Herman is gone, Warriner may be gone soon if the right offer comes, Fickell and/or Ash may get some calls and you can see where the problems can begin.  

I hope, for his sake and for the Buckeye football team, he can keep it somewhat even keel and be fine. 

I still only give him til 2020, with hopefully 1 more title at least
