I was born and raised in Cleveland, TN but my dad and his family are from Toledo, OH. We are Buckeye fans in my family, but I married a UT Vol girl... It's okay though because she is a wonderful woman and smokin' hot. I love to get on here and talk about Buckeye football. I'm an elementary school PE teacher, so each day I'm molding the youth of America.

I'm neutral on the Tebow situation right now. Would be great for leadership and recruiting, but I'm not sold on him being able to develop QBs. I'd like to look at some other options. Maybe have him on the list but later down the road. 

Comment 14 Dec 2014

OSU needs to pay up and keep Herman in Columbus until a prime power 5 school comes calling. I was critical of Herman earlier in the season but it seems he's opening up the playbook now and has developed the QBs really well. 

Comment 13 Dec 2014

I agree with doubling his salary. There's a reason why Kirby Smart has been at Bama for so long. He makes a ton of money and doesn't have all the stress of being a head coach.  Also, my dad works part-time for Hershey. I might be able to get some Reese Cups to help the cause. 

Comment 12 Dec 2014

I don't know how anyone can reply yes to this poll question.  The B1G is making terrible hires and doesn't pay assistants like other conferences do.  Look at Wiscy.  They just lost Anderson and hired Paul Chryst.  Why not throw a blank check at Kirby Smart from Bama?  

Comment 11 Dec 2014

We need to pay our assistants a little more after this year.  I know they already make a ton of money, but they have done a phenomenal job considering all of the adversity this team has faced.  Let's pay these guys that way we don't have to worry about them leaving for jobs like Tulsa, Kansas, and Houston.  If it were a big time job, I'd understand them leaving but we don't need to lose assistants to small programs.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

Urban wasn't willing to whiff on both guys, so he took Weber.  If Harris wanted in, he should've committed a while back and help recruit other players.  Honestly, I hope he ends up at UK.

I'm a teacher... I don't make a lot of money. I do put money in a savings and retirement acct. It's all about budgeting and priorities. 

Comment 09 Dec 2014

Sick of hearing about this already.  These parents AREN'T paying any tuition, books, or housing expenses.  How about budgeting your money the right way and put some money away each month for expenses like this.  We are bound for an 8 team playoff, there's no way around it.  There is going to be travel involved too.  Just a part of life.  

Comment 06 Dec 2014

I voted yes…  There are a lot of unknowns at this point.  Our defense has to win the game for us and I believe Herman has to allow for a lot of short, quick throws in the first half to build CJ's confidence.  

IF and I emphasize IF we win…  This will be Urban Meyer's most prolific coaching of his career.  He will have went 12-1 with our 2nd/3rd string QBs while losing 2 Heisman hopefuls and having a relatively young team.  If we win the B1G title tonight, Urban and the staff will have earned single penny of their salaries this year.  

Comment 01 Dec 2014

What doesn't make sense is an analyst said earlier this year that the committee kept Oregon high even after their loss because they knew that 2 o-linemen were out.  What sense does it make to punish OSU because the starting QB is out then?  Shouldn't we be given the same benefit as Oregon?  The whole thing is a scam anyway.  Until we go to a true 8 team playoff with the conference champions getting automatics bids and then have 3 at-large bids, teams will continue to get screwed.  

Comment 01 Dec 2014

I honestly think this is where we should see the diamond formation.  Cardale will be a load to take down and that would give us 4 options in the backfield.  I think most of Cardale's passing attempts should be 10 yards or less unless there is a guy wide open downfield.  This offense will look very conservative IMO until Herman sees that he can let Cardale sling it.  

With all of that said...  Saturday's game will be determined by our defense.  They will have to win the game for us.

I'd like to see Ole Miss pull off the upset too. If Auburn and Ole Miss can both pulls win out of their rear end, that'll shut the SEC out of the playoffs. 

Comment 21 Nov 2014

I've thought about taking this trip.  I'd like to get there Saturday evening, play golf Sunday morning, tear the city down Sunday night, then tailgate on Monday.  Would be a great trip.
