Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, AD at Arkansas, and head of the NCAA playoff selection committee. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Hey Jonping67, do you think another  possibility in your replacement scenario for Devin Smith/Evan Spencer is one Braxton Miller ?  (Also don't forget about Johnnie Dixon and James Clark)

That shoulder labrum injury has to be devastating to a throwing motion - especially after two reparations now.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

Guys, there won't be a QB race until August. Do you think Braxton will be able to throw a 15 yard out in spring ball ? Do you think JT will run a 4.5 forty by April ? Hell no.

Our QB is #12 and we won't know if #5 or #16 can even compete until August camp.

I am enjoying wearing Buckeye shirts to work down here in Nashville, Alabama. People are congratulating me as if I was on the coaching staff - especially the Auburn fans.

Of course it's gratifying for everyone in Ohio, but I can't explain in words how sweet it is in the heart of SEC country. And the playoff has made it undisputable - the first undisputed  championship ever.  Realize it : we beat #1, #2, #6, and #13 !!!

Off topic observation : we crushed Wisconsin and outplayed Bama with our traditional helmets and slightly altered "traditional" uniforms. Let's keep the Nike combat crap at the Woody when we board the plane to  Big D !

Comment 04 Jan 2015

I cannot express how much this game meant to me. I live and work in Nashville "Alabama", and I will proudly don a block O as often as possible. And my office ? That will be a shrine !

I don't believe Cardale Jones is a third string QB anywhere else in the country, but I will absolutely be giving this  to the Bama fans : "What if we had our #2 QB in the Sugar bowl ?"

thank you UFM !!!

Comment 02 Jan 2015

Still here in NOLA !  You should've seen the faces of the Bama fans when we scored on this play. It was their worst nightmare knowing we had 14 unanswered points, and receiving to start the second half. 

These are some justifiably smug fans , and it was so sweet being among only 10 Buckeyes in our entire section !!!

Comment 21 Dec 2014

Michael, I'm surprised at the tone of this article. Yes, the Buckeyes will need a varied attack, probably more so than what was needed in the last two games. But I don't see it as Thomas , Marshall, Heuerman and Spence not producing or disappearing. I think the staff took advantage of the hot hands of Zeke and D Smith, riding them right into the playoffs. Bama will scheme, but Cardale will take the pre-snap read, look to the sideline for the play, and utilize all the available tools. This offense is damn good.

Comment 16 Dec 2014

He's right - every Monday morning at the gym it's "SEC baby". To which I usually reply, I understand how you need to root for an entire conference because your team isn't very good (Arkansas, Vandy, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Texas A&M - and usually Ole Miss and Miss State).  Don't look now, but Michigan State and Wisconsin can beat any of these teams - and cAn play with the rest. 

Comment 13 Dec 2014

Sounds like a job for Les Wexner-like alumni to take care of. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the NcAA. If I want to buy my neighbor a ticket and flight, I'm free to do that any day if the year. So if Les wants to kick in $50K to send 25 families - let it flow. Who has his number ?

Comment 12 Dec 2014

I am ecstatic that we are a big dog for the Sugar. We were dogs against MSU and in the BIG CG. No one has stopped this offense. I live in Alabama country and the smart ones have said all season that the defensive backfield is not that good. 

This team will stand toe to toe with mighty Bama , and will end up winning 38-28. And I will be there - happy new year everyone !

Comment 07 Dec 2014

I know we're basking in an awesome win. But does anyone else wonder how the hell they called #84 Corey Smith for targeting when he clearly braced to aim with his shoulder and proceeded to hit the guy with the BACK of his shoulder ?  I don't even know how they called it a penalty because he clearly did not clip the guy

Comment 07 Dec 2014

The way Fox sports was pumping up Bucks all game and post game, Danny Kannell had Bucks #3, and most importantly, Paul Feinbaum said,"this team is THE STORY in college football in 2014. The committee has to put them in." - all shows how outsiders view the Buckeyes. We'll be in. Don't surprised if #3.

Comment 06 Dec 2014

Gentlemen., the MSU game plan made the season. It was masterful. It took advantage of JT and Jalin and Dontre's talents against what will now be a top 7 team. 

Jalin has an expanded role and enter the behemoth gunslinger. Ted Ginn Sr said the whole country will be surprised. I have it from an extremely close source to the team that Cardale has looked amazing all week. Accurate and fast. The game plan will be for the throat like it was against MSU. 38-17

Comment 05 Dec 2014

Alwayz , good point about D line depth fatigue.  Urban has commented several times that the back up D linemen just aren't where they need to be. I think the reputation for depth evaporated with Spence and Jamal Marcus gone. 

I'm not making an excuse here because I don't think Wisconsin can match up athletically at all. But with an average defense that is young - I've been saying all year that next year looks way more promising .

Comment 03 Dec 2014

Hey guys, it's JT, and Darron Lee, and Joshua Perry, and Michael Bennett, and Doran Grant ... Raekwon. ... Adolphus ... Elflein ... Decker ... Marshal ... Heuerman ... Zeke 

ever hear these guys interview ? The class of people being recruited is unbelievable

Comment 01 Dec 2014

Guys. Concussions can completely change a person to the point of suicidal thoughts. Be very mindful if your family is affected. 

Not a psychiatrist or neurologist , just a guy who leads a very large organization, and has first hand experience with people in it. This is a recurring theme.

DJ - I was at that  Browns / Titans game in Nashville. We had a block of 40 clad in Orange and Brown sitting in the top section, midfield, Browns side (east). The whole section was Browns fans and there were no issues with standing. I was very proud at how many represented in what resulted in the biggest away team comeback in the history of the NFL !
