Woody Hayes had a saying: "You either get better, or you get worse." Hard to see that this team has gotten better (especially the O-line) since the Oklahoma game. That said, it was a team effort contributing to the loss. Credit to Penn State for finding a way to win.
Good year for the Buckeyes and we should be proud of them. But it seemed the team was gassed again last night ( same as the B1G tournament) either due to lack of depth, conditioning or hustle. Tennessee constantly beat them down court for easy buckets. Whichever it is I hope it gets addresses next year.
That man is Presidential material!
Why am I not impressed by Bama?
Blue fans are trying to make lemonade out of lemons. The lemons are that the Buckeyes have NFL players and Michigan Man doesn't. The lemonade is that they now hope that the talent drain brings OSU closer to them. Maybe they haven't been paying attention to who is on the Buckeye bench. An endless supply of lemons for TTUN.
I think we are going to like Antonio Williams. Any kid that has the character to thank his elementary school for setting him on his life's journey is all right in my book.
The rule is to protect both the offensive player and the defensive player. Spielman made this point. Bosa could really get hurt leading with the crown of his helmet. Really missed watching him in his last game.
Let's see. PAC 12 has 2 teams in the BCS Top 20 and have a Heisman finalist. ACC has 3 in the Top 20 and has a finalist. SEC has 4 Top 20 teams and a finalist. The B1G has 5 teams in the Top 20 and it's Offensive Player of the Year is not even invited to NY. Maybe if we had all volunteered to chip in for airfare they might have added a fourth.
Buckeyes -5 over an Irish team that lost on a miracle to Stanford in their stadium. Iowa +6.5 to Stanford in the Rose. Iowa ranked 5th and the Buckeyes ranked 7th. The Wise Guys know better.
Kind of feels like Sparty beat us again today. Should be a good game with the Irish. Go Bucks!
We have a calendar problem. We have a September offense at the end of November.
The Clemson offensive play calling was impressive, especially the screen passes. I hope we develop some offensive consistency over the next 2 weeks with JTB to expand the playbook quite a bit more. I would like to think the Buckeye defensive line would cause Clemson some problems. FSU didn't have much pressure on Deshaun Watson at all.
Both Tyquan and Tyronda make make you proud to be a Buckeye!
Anybody else notice Ezekiel Elliot's block(s) on the Braxton Miller 53-yard run? Wow.
Nice to see how much you care about this young man and his future.
The ACC (Florida State, Clemson, Miami, VT) puts more players in the NFL than does the B1G so saying that these guys can't play isn't supported by the facts. VT has 21 pros to our 31. As to this game, I believe VT is a good, well coached team with a very good defense that, unfortunately, matched up well with our weaknesses (inexperienced O-line and quarterback). Their quarterback was smart and played well enough to win (I know, our 3rd down defense needs work).
What do you think would happen in a rematch at the end of the year when our offense is experienced and we have more balance between offense and defense? I'd like our chances.
Saw him play this year versus Mater Dei (Santa Ana). Two excellent programs and he was, by far, the best player on the field. Didn't know he was this highly rated.

Words to live by in football, basketball (looking at you Thad) and life.
I live about 5 miles from UC Irvine and am not impressed with this hire. Of course, I would not be impressed with anyone from the UC System. Disaster.
