I'm feeling worse than before, but not really hit the 'worried' stage yet.  We don't get to see/know every detail, and some of holding BM back publicly might be to throw a curve ball at upcoming D-Coordinators...We only have a few more weeks to speculate.

VA Tech may be a little higher ranked, but you're right...look at all the Ohio boys who are going to want to make a showing...

Remember Ryan Brewer of outback bowl fame?

Welcome aboard; and good luck.  One thing you'll know for sure, what your fellow Buckeye-lovers think of your opinions in articles.  You can bet no one will be shy in expressing their view of what is right or wrong in tOSU territory. 

Comment 14 Jul 2014

With the stable of running  backs available, and BM's statements about the punishment, (& his history of injuries) we have to believe the called runs will be decreased.  I love that he has that ability.  But I'd love more if he only used it when there were no other options, and then minimized the hits he takes...I prefer a QB who CAN run Vs a running QB.

Comment 11 Jul 2014

I really don't have a preference, as Saturday's are all CFB for me anyways.  I do dislike away night games for our team, band, & fans as some A-hole drunks, such as PeeA$$U, make the experience worse.

Comment 19 Jun 2014

I'm not much of a Delany fan, and don't care for the direction he's moved the conference nor the new additions.  Support leaving the B1G?  HEKK yeah...joining the SoEverybodyCheats?  Ehhhh...Being the lead in changing the world of CFB?  HEKK yes again.

The NCAA blew their chance to be relevant in the future by not stepping up and really taking charge when all this reshuffling began, and then revamping the rule books so they would make sense.  They'll soon be on the scrap heap of history, IMHO, and rightfully so.

Well said.  For the more traditional, custom says today, fly your flag at half staff from sunup till noon.  At 3:00 P,M. (local times), we observe a few minutes of silence to commemorate those who gave their all.  That said, the sacrifices were for the freedom to do those things or just say blip it, let's go to the lake.  Do as you see fit.

Comment 25 May 2014

Wiscy - Stave & Gordon are back...seems they always have beaucoup Fat Bast***ds to shore up their lines.  They beat Iowa & Minney last year, and have the Huskers at home...I'd say it's theirs to lose.

Comment 22 May 2014

I'm always concerned about ALL of 'em...(on any given Saturday).  It's at there house, week 10, so the new guys will be experienced by then.  I STILL think we'll win, but I don't know that "Look what they did to us last year" is going to be that much motivation.

Comment 20 May 2014

Yep, born a Buckeye, coached for Woody, and went on to be successful...Hard to hate him for two FB games at the tail end of his coaching career.

Comment 19 May 2014

It is going to be a very interesting fall camp.  We obviously have some studs, I'd really like to see Smith get the chance, everyone was so excited when he decided to come to Columbus, but it might be too late for him to get his head out and show what could have been.  You never know when looking at that stud HS senior which one will be the star, and which one will be the guy to just show up and be just a party animal.  And that is what makes CFB so special.

Comment 14 May 2014

When my grandson asked my what NoFunLeague team I root for, I've always said it depends.  I count the number of Buckeyes on the roster, and that's who I cheer for...

~~Johnson's list of coaching accomplishments while at Penn State is also impressive:
• Six of his defensive linemen were first-round NFL draft picks, including No. 1 overall pick Courtney Brown in 2000 and also featuring Jimmy Kennedy (2002), Michael Haynes (2003), Tamba Hali (2006), Jared Odrick (2010) and Aaron Mabin (2009).
• Seven of his defensive linemen achieved first-team All-American status (the six in the first note above and Devon Still).
• PSU defensive linemen have earned 22 Academic All-Big Ten Conference honors.
• Three of his position players have been named Academic All-American (Tim Shaw in 2006 and Pete Massaro in 2010 and 2012).
• Fifteen Nittany Lion defensive linemen have been named first-team all-Big Ten Conference.
• No Big Ten team (since 1996) has had as many players from one position earn Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year honors than the five Nittany Lion honorees hat Johnson mentored.
• And in 2005-06 Rivals.com named Johnson its national college football recruiter of the year. I think he's an improvement at this time.  Someday, Vrabel may be better, but this was his first stop, and whether he ends up as a pro or CFB coach is still up in the air.  Add LJ's experience, and I think you almost HAVE to consider him to be the better coach.  From his bio on the official site:

in early January, Coach Meyer had a hemorrhoid removed.  A week later, Ped State named it PeeSUes new head football coach.
