Very sad indeed. Too bad nobody will have any answers before Thursday night. Always liked Gareon and hope these allegations turn out to be false. I really hope this talented young man didn't blow a very promising life with one incredibley poor (and criminal) decision. 

I always watch the 1st round, but it is going to be difficult now. ESPN is going to be talking about the Gareon situation all night like they did with Collins a couple years ago. It's fair game, but damn this is a sad situation.

It will be hard not to be a bust considering Urban will leave the bar incredibley high. Whoever the next coach is won't be as talented considering Urban is literally as good as it gets. Alabama faces the same situation when Saban leaves. Almost anybody will be considered a bust by some if they don't maintain the same ridiculous Meyer levels of success. We are spoiled and one day we will have to come back to reality. Enjoy every second of Meyer in the present! This is the golden era.

1. Penn State: You just know Franklin is going to have Mcsorely throw 7-8 of his famous 50 yard arm punts. If they come down with 3-4 of those then we got ourselves a really close game. They won't be able to move methodically against our defense, but those toss it up for grabs throws always seem to go their way. I worry about someone like Damon Arnette on these plays. 

2. MSU: Because they know how to play us and I'm sure the weather gods will give them rain or 40 mph winds. Maybe both if Dino offers up Bollman as a human sacrifice. 

3. Wisky: They are always good and our slightly undersized linebackers may have a tough time with an NFL sized O-line.

Arm talent wise that is completely correct. When you factor in the read-option it levels the playing field a little for JT. Still, JT remains the least talented thrower of the group. The argument has always been that his other qualities negate his rather limited arm talent. It is a fair argument and one that will likely rage throughout the season when Burrow comes in during mop up time and looks fantastic.

True but it will take at least a bad loss for Urban to pull trigger on changing QBs. A loss that probably won't happen until we play someone really good in the playoffs that exposes JT for the scattershot he is. Even with a poor passing attack we have enough talent to get through the regular season undefeated. QB change won't come until too late.

Good point. I think the unit will improve, but then my worry is we have a bunch of solid guys but no standouts. Is there a Thomas or Samuel in this group? Is there one guy who is going to take it to another level on third down? We need a guy like Thomas who not only has the ability, but also the confidence to snag those big time pressure catches. Maybe Ben Victor will be that guy. Cumulative improvement is good, but man do we need another Samuel, Thomas, or Holmes.

Let's take this kid at his word. Clemson is a great place and just won the national title. They have amazing facilities and a great record of putting guys in the league under Dabo. Maybe he really did just like the culture he observed at Clemson more than that of OSU. It stinks to lose the top player in the state, but it is going to happen some years. Meyer will usually win these battles when it involves Ohio kids, but it is hard to bat 1.000 when these decisions are based on the ever changing feelings of 18 year old males. The battle for Carman isn't over, but let's not underestimate Dabo or the volatility of an 18 year olds  opinion.

I think it is safe to assume that. Whenever we played Indiana I was always most worried about those screens. Wilson would always call them once we started to get a little more aggressive. The screen game alone is going to add something to our arsenal that defenses haven't had to account for in the past. Wilson is also innovative so we will probably see some concepts he didn't even really use at Indiana. Wilson is incredibley hard working and now his sole job is to put up a ton of points with elite talents. Meyer literally couldn't have hired anyone better to shake things up.

Maybe so but this is on the Cavs. You allowed the Hawks to score 44 in a quarter? News flash: the Hawks are not good. I'm a Hawks fan and I am honestly shocked. The Cavs also lost to the Hawks a couple nights ago when the Hawks sat four starters! I know it's only the  regular season, but losing to a pathetic Hawks team in back to back games like that is shameful. Especially when the #1 seed is at stake. I like the Cavs a lot, but I'm just baffled by this.

Great review of Rudy by DJ. I enjoyed the imagery of Pete's charred body still burning as Rudy heads off for his pipe dream. Really funny stuff.

I don't entirely understand the hate for Buckeyejack. It's funny of course, but I don't entirely get it. I feel like he is getting the JPBuck treatment. Has Jack ever touted Harbaugh or praised Michigan? I miss a lot of threads, but to my knowledge his only crime is mainly trolling about how JT isn't so great. Am I missing something?

Let Dobbins play. Dobbins and Demario can provide those long runs that Weber was never able to break off. I like what Weber brings to the table, but the ability to hit a home run on the ground at any second is incredibley valuable. Zeke's long runs were our only saving grace against Indiana two years ago. We had a lot of problems last year, but a total lack of big plays  was among them. Kevin Wilson will help with that, but rotating more speed in at RB will help as well.
