The cycle will continue to swing.  All the auto industry factories gave the Big Ten a lot of people raising families last century.  The jobs have moved, first south, and now the trend is moving south and west.  When state governments wake up and welcome more industry back into their states in the Rust Belt, the trend will turn again.

Maybe not, but some of those idiots would still figure out a way to claim another championship banner.

The problem with that train of thought is that in the early days, they didn't track defensive stats like they do now.  In fact, into the 30s (at least, maybe later) they didn't even track an offensive & defensive All America team.  Boyd Cherry, Wes Fesler & Merle Wendt were all three-time AA at the end position, & Wendt especially was noted for his play on the D side of the ball.  We have a tendency to look at MOSTLY just the players we have seen play, and forget the old timers.  That's always a problem, both because no one still alive saw a lot of those guys, and because the game has changed so much.

Dabbled with this a few years ago.  The media guide had a link to the all time list of assistant coaches at Ohio State.  Woody had 41 assistants just in Columbus.  I'm having a more difficult time with information from Miami, Denison, or his High School coaching days.  I'm thinking that would require a personal visit to the school and a look at the program's archives.

woops, hit save too soon.  But do not underestimate revenge as a factor on Labor Day evening...those guys are going to be looking for blood, and VA Tech will be providing it....

Comment 27 Jun 2015

I don't think there's going to be a BAD bet this whole year, no matter who we're playing.  The talent runs too deep, and CUFM is a master motivator, and if the first team is too lackadaisical and not getting the job done, I can see him firing up the B squad, or even C squad to come out and kick some butt.  And what is going to fire up the A Team more than being set down for a series or quarter for being a slug?

On the PLUS side, the Buckeyes are very accustomed to having a target on their backs...EVERY year.

Wow...reading some of the above, I'm modestly offering these two accomplishments:

Best accomplishment was finishing 4th in the old Northern Lakes League wrestling tournament.  Biggest bragging point was an unassisted tackle of Rick Upchurch in HS FB.

I voted W, creating an 82-82 tie.  I see it going the same way in the actual game.  Depends on which team shows up, with X-amount of intensity.  Something seems to be missing this year, ???  who knows what?

"...at the level OSU needs him to play" is a bit ambiguous.  We all HOPE he exceeds expectations and turns into a stud.  He's shown flashes, and, regardless of reason, has disappointed as well.  But with a name like Schutt...even non-Buckeyes should be rooting for the kid to be a football stud.
