"...they'd lock up arms and they'd walk out, it was so hype."

Whyy do we not do the hive anymore?? So much cooler than the quick cals.

If I'm not mistaken, Cleveland has a high school system where students can go to any school in the city that they want to. So I think it's more a result of most of the really good players in Cleveland choosing to go play for Glenville, then combining that with how good the coaching is there.

Possibly using him to replace Paul Kruger, who I believe was traded recently. Both are about the same size (Kruger has an inch or two and a few pounds on Simon), so Simon will probably be playing OLB for them.

I'd have to say, seeing as basically all those big name guys are defensive, it's because they want a chance to play for Mattison. At this point with how quickly he improved their defense, to all the big name defensive players they are getting/might get, the Mattison hire was just as important as Hoke for Michigan.

I'm thinking the closer to the NBA 24 second the shot clock gets the more likely the more talented/better team wins each game, which as one of the better programs currently is what I want. The less talented teams that screw around for 30 seconds a possession will start losing much more often (looking at you Bo), and will allow the teams with actual NBA talent to run the floor and score more often. Overall seems like there's only upside to making it under 30 seconds unless you're one of the boring ass, slow it down teams which no one likes to watch anyway.

Every single team in the country is most likely going lose a game. It is very, very hard to go undefeated, but usually a few team have the talent/get the breaks to go undefeated. I think it's more likely than not we lose a game, but I would say that about every. single. team. in the country. The reason we talk about national championship aspirations is because out of every single team in the country we are one of maybe 5-6 teams that can actually say we have a legitimate shot at going undefeated. 

So yeah those games you listed could be trouble, but I could name 3 or more games that could be trouble for Bama, Oregon, Stanford, A&M, Clemson, and every other team that is talking national title hopes. And actually because of our weak schedule, the games that could give them trouble are probably quite a bit more difficult than freaking Northwestern...

Smart move. Biggest things holding his stock down are mainly athleticism/physical things that aren't able to be fixed with more time in college. Hope he has a great career, we need more big time players in the NBA.

Imagine a triple option-option out of this. Get to the line, Braxton reads which way the option would work better then somehow motions whether they're running the triple option to the left with Hyde/Rod or to the right with Hyde/Dunn. Not sure how plausible that play is but our diamond would have as much talent as any backfield in the country.

Apparently he and his girlfriend just had a kid so he wants to be closer to home.

You can see how much his Psych background permeates everything Urban does. Every statement he makes, from praise to criticism, seems extremely calculated on his part to motivate the players to be as good as they can be. One of the many reasons hes one of the best college coaches today.

Comment 04 Mar 2013

I'm usually pretty pessimistic (realistic?), but I have an unusual good feeling about the IU game. Of course I'll probably regret saying that when Zeller is making Amir/Ravanel his bitch for 40 straight minutes.

Love this series. I remember back when I started getting into OSU blogs in like 8th grade, I had a huge list of blogs I would go through to see if any updated: Eleven Warriors, Osu Silver Bullet, We Will Always Have Tempe, Our Honor Defend, Bucknuts, the Rivalry Esq (now Off Tackle Empire). Now like 5 years later and 11w is basically the only OSU site I need, and they've absorbed some of the other blogs haha. Glad to see some of the better OHD articles continued on here.

If I was Urban I'd force Curtis Grant to room with Shazier and copy his every move and routine every day. Maybe he'll rub off on him some that way. So glad Ryan switched his commitment from Florida or we would be completely screwed this year (and last year) with linebackers.

JakeBuckeye: just so you know I often agree with your 'differing' opinions, and usually try and upvote you when I can. But usually don't feel like getting involved internet arguments so I don't really comment on them.
