If you ever got involved in the Big 33 during the PA-OH clashes, you might feel a little different. Especially when JoePa pulled that crap with Herby, the competition (Pryor?) for the border players (Dustin Fox, too) made things pretty intense there for a while. Add the 2005 game & the 'Urine Crappy Valley' animosity, and it was pretty bad. If Franklin gets things fired up again, *MOD EDIT* will again claim to be our big rivals.
Yep...still a lot of football before it's all said & done. No whining allowed.
I think RichRod's loss last night was big. We lost to VA T, and dropped 14 spots. Oregon lost to AZ and only dropped 10. Both the Hokies & Wildcats were unranked preseason & early...USC hasn't been all that so far, and their win over AZ last night brings things back into perspective a bit more. I think we'll see some corrections coming into play now...
I don't think he's READY to be a HC yet, but that won't stop people from asking. He's still dealing with the stress of Big Game decisions, and that would be the hold up, I'd think. He may do OK at Texas State, or UTEP, or a small, low expectation program. But he's proven he's not ready for the big time as an OC, let alone as a HC.
I'm a believer in "...on any given Saturday... and look at BGSU & VA Tech as examples. I THINK we will kick Cinci's butt over their shoulder blades...How bad, or even if the shoe is on the other foot will depend on how quickly either team comes out of the gate. Especially with young teams, that quick start and the confidence that builds with a quick start goes a long way. I think we win big, but ...
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?
Exactly...don't know, don't care, and don't feel it is worthy of wasting a moment's thought...
That is a fact...Buckeye Nation, ALWAYS in the hunt.
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.
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.
Everyone has their favorites, and if you'd like to give some comparisons, you can find ammunition at the above link...
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.
What about Chris Gamble? Going both ways and putting up the numbers he did? The question is best player, and going both ways is something that's been virtually unseen for 50 years.
...AND of course, the Buckeyes playing on that campus later in the day.
I said no, but 'ever' is a long, long time.
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.
Football has always been a game of unmeasurables. Sometimes, ability is trumped by heart, or attitude.
No no....Odin is the father of THOR...
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.
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.
My thoughts as well. MJ was money in the bank. No trouble, good speed, good hands, and got the reach. 4th & 14.
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.
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.
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.
