Almost spit out my drink when I read that....lol
Thanks for the table.
Any chance you add a table of those that still have their Black stripe?
Great article. Thanks
Good thoughts Citrus...I'm excited to see the season get going.
With the loss of Brax and all the dooms day people... I think Urbs will have an angry team with a chip on their shoulder...
While Braxton is a great QB, he is not perfect. Isn't the concern that his mid range throws need work? Aren't the pro scouts still waiting to him truly shine as a passing QB?
With all the talent at receiver, TE, and running back, why shouldn't tOSU be excited for this season? JT was a highly recruited dual threat QB. Who knows, they could play even better with JT? Maybe with some experience and confidence he becomes a better passer than Braxton? I still think the odds are better that we end up with a more well rounded offensive attack this year vs the Braxton/Hyde show of last year.
My point is, Why the hell are all these Ohio State fans throwing in the towel? I hope the players still believe they can win the Big10 and make a run at a national championship.
Is there a running list of who has lost the black stripe and who hasn't?
How confident are you in Gardner ?
Just curious, who really is Arkansas' rival?
It would be great for the Big Ten if Nebraska were to return to a high level nationally.
My gut says ND....I hope I'm wrong
Both seem to be great young men on paper and I hope they both find success in college. Collier appears to be doing all the right things since he committed to tOSU on and off the field.
It says a lot that he always tries to match up against the top recievers at the camps
I'm concerned with the fast break basketball I've been seeing. I'd like to see a rule that when the ball changes posessesion the new team with the ball should have to pass the ball around for 10 secods before trying to score. Otherwise, the faster team has an advantage and the bigger slow guys need a chance to catch up.
I agree. I think you are gonna see some motivated and "angry" defensive players this spring and next fall. These guys have a chip on their shoulder. For the past year, they've heard the critics and their pride took a slap in the face. Spring ball is gonna produce some angry hits...their out to prove themselves.
Now tell me that man isn't under a little stress....
Depending on the weather and how windy it gets, it will be interesting to see the ratio of run plays to pass plays.
Considering how often you hear the media discuss how tOSU is overrated and how bad the BIG10 is this year, you would think the players would play with a chip on their shoulder....with the attitude that their angy and we are going to show the people how good we are.
Meyer said he likes an angry team. I would think this team would be a little mad...feel they get no respect and be motivated to pound other teams each week.
I think it would be different if everyone said how great they were and ESPN reported how great they were...then...I could see it go to their heads but well...All you hear in the sports media and social media is they would be a middle pack SEC team so I think they will stay motivated.
If Fickel does leave this year, it would be interesting to see what Vrabel would do as a DC. He certainly had a defensive minded coach in Belichek who he spent time with.
Speaking of MAC opportunities, what about Miami U. They fired their coach earlier this season. Are they in the market for a new HC?
I miss Bert...He added some enjoyment to the Big10.
That is just amazing. Congrats to TBDBITL!
That was just awkward to watch....
The Big needs to get into gear. tOSU, Michigan, Nebraska and Penn St should be top 20 teams on a regular basis.
In the next tier Wisconsin, Michigan St. and Rutgers should be able to put some teams into the top 20 off and on over a period of years.
Someone else should be able to surprise folks every so often....maybe....Iowa, Maryland, Illinois, Purdue ?
For tOSU schedule...throw in a MAC school and then one big name school would be a good start each year.
Exactly. According the the forums, play calling has been less than satisfactory so...What's up?
Would be much easier on my stress level to see them kick it out of endzone.
