I'm right there with you TxsBUCKEYE. I live in NE Louisiana and I won't get it either. I guess I will have to try and find a sports bar here that has ESPN gameplan. The Bucks game is on channel 788 on Directv (gameplan)

I for one find your post completely out of bounds for this article comment string and out of bounds for 11W as a whole.

I hate SCum as much as anybody but to associate the horrific terrorism committed by ISIS terrorist in the implied way you do to TSUN is completely over the top and frankly offensive even to this 40+ year Buckeye Fanatic.

If I misinterpreted it somehow, then I apologize.

IMHO, the first 2 were simply that Bell and Apple got beat while the 3rd one was more scheme. It seemed to me Grant was expecting safety help on that one, so maybe it was a miscommunication. Though I have only watched the game once thus far and might see something different after watching it closer the next time.

I think UFM pulling the corners back had to do more with them simply getting beat than with the scheme. The DB's have the talent to play press man...they just didn't do it well on those plays.

Hubbard was moved back to defense from TE at the beginning of fall camp. So I'm not sure how much it had to do with Heuerman's health improving over the last few weeks. Meyer has repeatedly said that Jeff's foot (stress fracture) will only get better with long term rest, He will have problems with it all year but the question is how much of a problem it will be.

The way I remember it the late Gilda Radner (Mrs. Gene Wilder) would be on "Weekend Update". She would go on some rant about something, then Jane Curtin would correct her, then Radner would say "Never Mind". Was she playing Littela or Rosanna Dana? Because I remember it as Rosanne Rosanna Dana. But I am 51yrs. old and had a long history of drug abuse. So my memory might be a little "cloudy" :)

I agree that no one respectable has said OSU would only win that many games but....

I live in North Louisiana and the day Braxton got hurt I was listening to the local sports radio station. On the afternoon radio show, where they have the local "sports experts" take over for 3 hours from ESPN radio between 3-6pm, they lit OSU up for the entire time I listened. They did not say that OSU would only win 3-4 games but the majority of the commentators and caller comments were that OSU would finish in the middle of the B1G's East division. Next they said OSU would finish in the middle of the pack in the SEC even with Braxton, and that OSU would finish in the middle of the pack, at best, in any year. (which they all agreed on) Then they said that OSU would still have a decent record only because OSU never leaves the state of Ohio in the non-conference. They mentioned that for the last 7yrs. the local morning show (which I personally have not heard) they have called the OSU non-conference schedule the "see Ohio tour". The reason being that everyone either comes to Ohio to play OSU or OSU plays 2 Ohio schools, 1 usually an FCS school. They went on to state that none of them (there were 4 commentators on the show) could ever remember OSU beating a good team on the road. Then the 2 younger members of the "panel" stated they had never seen OSU beat any of the good teams, ever...that OSU always loses against good teams (at least the 2 older members said that OSU has "on occasion" beaten  good teams). There was much open laughter by all involved while they said these things.

At that point after listening for approx. 45mins of the show (yes it went on at least that long) I shut it off. True story. 

I don't know who the twitter poster was listening to, but I have no doubt he heard it.

Make of it what you will.

Damn TINMAN that's rough! I hope YOU will SOMEDAY recover completely. I'll have you (along with Braxton) in my prayers tonight. Scary story. And this is coming from a man who has had 6 back and 3 heart surgeries.

I loved the article Ramzy. Thanks

Except you had one thing wrong:  "You're going to blink and we'll be in 2015, freezing and WAITING FOR NEXT SEASON!"

Come 2015...I will be watching The Ohio State Buckeyes whip some ass in the college football semi-finals on Jan. 1st, 2015, then on Jan. 12th, 2015, Crushing whatever team is unlucky enough to face Our Mighty Bucks in the National Championship Game.
