I'm just happy to see another big time player in the B1G football stay in the B1G. I would actually prefer these kids to go over UM over MSU. I'm sick and tired of people saying other rivalries are bigger than THE GAME now. It's bull crap, I'm ready for more top ten match ups in sports greatest rivalry.
I just want to let that Ramblin Man know that Ohio State has a very solid record against the SEC. I believe Ohio State is at least 10 games over .500 against the SEC. Also, if TG does choose OSU, I'm sure TG could care less about the SEC at that point. I hate how SEC fans, and SEC media confuse passion with ignorance. Buckeye Nation is passionate, the majority of SEC fans that I have dealt with are no more passionate than OSU fans, just ignorant.
That's not even including a much improved Northwestern program and an improving Minnesota program.
I don't think the West is as bas a people think. Not as strong as the East but with Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska there will always be parity. Not to mention the West has claimed two conference championships compared to just one from the East since there has been a title game.
I feel as if Vol fans are just throwing the "looking for cash" statement out just so they have a built in excuse. Wether it be Auburn or tOSU or another school, the ONLY reason TG chose them over the Vols is because they paid him. Vol fans are sad, sad sports fans.
I remember, seemingly as early as last winter, some on the the 11W staff predicting that if Torrance Gibson ever visited tOSU, that they believed tOSU would be the favorites. After everything and all of the rumors that TG / OSU has been through regarding this kid, it would be something if in the end 11W nailed this prediction. Judging the majority of Vol fans on Twitter, there is nothing that would make me happier than their proclaimed savior committing to the good guys. Go Bucks!
Just to clear things up, nobody is actually for paying the players right? right? We discuss paying players we really mean better benefits and a better monthly stipend. I'm going to assume nobody actually thinks it would be a good thing for college football players to be payed.
How many will Matta take in the '15 class? There are still two big time prospects from Ohio who are uncommited. Bragg and Ahmad.
I know most Buckeye fans believe Nick Bosa is as close to a sure thing as you can get, but how to recruiting analysts feel about the Buckeyes chances of landing the younger Bosa? I do know that Nick said that he doesn't have a leader right now, and just because his brother plays football somewhere, doesn't mean he is going to follow him. Is he just blowing smoke, or does it legitimately appear Ohio State doesn't lead just because of Joey?
I've been to both stadiums, Ohio Stadium actually looks bigger than Michigan stadium to me. Michigan stadium, somehow, just does a better job somehow of packing people in like sardines.
Michigan Stadium has been renovated in the last five years, and looks nicer than it ever has at any point in it's history. Should ne no worse than number three in my opinion. Most people would agree Ohio Stadium is number one in the B1G, I want to know where people think it stack up against the best of the rest. I've only been to four stadiums in the B1G so far (Michigan, MSU, Indiana, and Illinois) and out of that list Michigan is definetly number two, Indiana three, Michigan State four, and Illinois five.
Lets relax on the Fire Fickell stuff. He is a legit position coordinator, and i believe that is all he should be. Lets do away with this "Co-coordinator" stuff and make Chris Ash the Defensive Coordinator and Fickell the LB's coach.
Tom Herman is one of the best offensive coordinators in college football. This year it is on Chris Ash. He is running the show in the defensive backfield, and that is where the issues are.
One thing that Bosa (who I'm still a big fan of) needs to realize, is that so many of his own team mates hale from that "dirty little city". I'm not sure Marshon, Erik Smith, Cardale Jones, etc. would be too thrilled with Bosa insulting their hometowns like that. Also, yes Miami is much nicer than Cleveland, but can Bosa also admit that Cleveland sports fans are also much better than Miami sports fans? He can cast the stone, but can he also admit to his home states own shortcomings?
Yea, that's what I was trying to get at. You don't enter the MLB draft, you just get drafted. Much like Manziel.
I disagree that ESPN has "brainwashed" college football fans. I remember even back in the early 2000's before the even Ohio State's 2002 NC that people all around me in Ohio Stadium were telling me you ALWAYS root for the B1G over other conferences.
lol that's the SEC that everybody around the country remembers and knows. Don't bring that SEC up to the Southerners though, they are going for their 80th straight NC.
If a superconference were to be created, it would most likely be regional. Therefore no current SEC teams would be in the same conference as Ohio State. This superconference that Ohio State were in would have Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, and most of the current B1G though.
Or since Ohio State is too good for the "SEC" we can just become independent. I'd rather stay in the B1G though. Love playing MSU, Michigan, and Penn State every year. And that's without the James Franklin / Urban Meyer rivalry even starting yet .
"I'm OSU till I die" If my wife and I ever split up, I know who I'm pursuing.
The 2015 MLB draft is after signing day though.
It's a game by game basis for myself. For example, for big time night games such as this years Va Tech, NOTHING beats watching the game at the Shoe. Same goes for any Michigan game. Having said that, if I'm not at the Shoe watching the game, I prefer to watch the games in the comfort of my home. I just can't focus enough on the games if I go out to the bars.

Lets say Urban Meyer retired right after this upcoming season and Ohio State had a full off season to search for a replacement. The coach I would predict, and would want to get the job would be Tom Herman. Dantonio would be up there as well though. After watching Urbans electrifying offenses for the last couple of years, I'm not ready to go back to Tressel ball. Bring on the Herman era.
At this point I want TG just to spite "VolNation" and no other reason
