Interesting how Warriner/Beck will change the dynamic of the QB room.  Herman clearly got the most out of that group.  X's & O's are one thing, but relating to & being an effective coach of those young men remains to be seen.

Warriner has been a sideline coach to this point, while Herman called plays from the press box.  Neither fact says much, but now that Warriner will assume the playcalling, how will his effectiveness as a position coach change?  Can Beck truly develop the QB group while not being able to call a game that tailors to each of their strengths?

As far as Braxton, seems like every time the cameras would cut to him on the sidelines during a telecast, there was nary a headset to be found.  So the last game reps (mental or otherwise) that Brax has had was January 2014.  Maybe it's because he had already mastered the Herman offense.  Maybe there were only enough headsets for JT & Collier.  But it's not a good look.   I don't think Braxton can win back the starting job by Labor Day.  Cardale will be the sharpest, and there's no room for a "warmup" game at VT.

Yeah, that drive from Blacksburg to Roanoke could get dicey after the game, what with all the celebratory spirits. 

Plus to drive back to Columbus from Roanoke, you have to double back through Blacksburg anyway.

Anyone have any success trying to book hotels in Blacksburg?  It's like they know Buckeye Nation will descend in masses and they are trying to make it as difficult as possible.

As far as the rest of the OOC schedule, anytime you have a directional school that isn't part of the actual state name, chances are the schedule is a big, hot steaming pile.  So why not double down on the directional doodoo??

Valid argument.

However, Keels is a true play by play guy.  We barely hear the crowd reaction and the radio audience already knows it's an interception.

Most other radio guys wait for a spotter to feed them information.  Keelsy gives us the action & worries about semantics later.

The Spidercam feed will be simulcast on Watch ESPN for the National Championship... only audio is the ambient stadium feed.  If you are crafty, you can sync up the radio call and watch in Keelsian bliss.

So the question remains, was Chad Lindsay the long con?  Planted by Saban, the most criminal of defensive masterminds?

If I see one play where Zeke gets tackled in the backfield due to a Bama LB "guessing right", consider  the answer to the above a gut punching yes.

kids acting like adults is usually funny.

but like urbs says, kids are a product of their environment.  that little boy learned that behavior from those around him.

so if you were someone who saw that vine & laughed, but then chastised ray rice & adrian peterson weeks ago... gotta take a step back & think about what domestic violence actually entails and the people it affects, unintentional or not.

So how would have this "perception" changed if Buckeyes beat Minny by three scores like it should have?

Gophers likely then are unranked and there goes a "quality" win.

Selection committee is either not watching the games or knows where the most talented team is and is trying to establish a framework to get them in the playoff.

Personally, I know Ohio Stadium can bring it with the best of them, even in home losses like Penn State just experienced (see: Texas '05, USC '09). 

But the largest self supporting athletic department in the country means that there's a lot of $$$ sitting in the Shoe on a given Saturday.  And no matter how big a fan a benefactor may be, you just won't ever get that part of the fan base to be maniacally cheering.

I don't know how old the typical reader is on 11W but with age comes perspective. And that vantage point often promotes a more subdued reaction, because maybe that isn't the first 31-24 win in 2OT in that fan's lifetime...

while it's important to educate buckeye nation on the dastardly deeds of SI's B-side, everyone please be sure that you DO NOT SHARE THE ARTICLE FROM SI's WEBSITE.  this only encourages more filth like this by increasing that idiot's click count.  link to the article only through this page.
