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.

5 years ago we had a mediocre line. T Pryor overshadowed the gaps left by a slower, less conditioned group in anunimaginative  offensive gameplan. Now we have three advantages over that period.   1. Warriner has proven that he can quickly form an inexperienced group.   2. The offensive scheme takes advantages of numerical mismatches.    And 3. The overall team speed enables success plays with Olinemen having to hold  blocks for a shorter time.  We're goid

Larry Johnson's hockey rotation mentality will keep fast and energized DE's in the game on a hot humid August afternoon in Baltimore. They may be scored on early , but that size and speed will contain the triple option in the second half.

Ytownbuck. You really don't understand why Michigan should be good ? Let me ask you this, why do you think that Ford , GM and Chrysler quality has improved so dramatically over the past 30 years ? I'll answer for ya, Toyota kicked their ass within one inch of extinction and they will never go back to their cheap ways of the 70's.  if OSU plays a top 20 MSU and  Penn State , then tops it off with a win over a top 10 M, we are not only in the play off, but actually ready for it. Clemson may not have been better than OSU , but  they knew how to finish a tight game against tougb competition. We clearly did not.

Amazing that he had such a work ethic and academic dedication coming from a home he constantly escaped from - a tribute to his mom and coaches it sounds like.

I wonder if his TV contract enables him to be a mentor to kids at his alma mater. Guys with a similar background could see how he beat the odds.

Guys, my family was away so I watched the UM , Wisconsin and MSU games on BTW last month. Our D wasn't bad - it was non-existent. There were two first rounders and one of the best collections of OSU D line talent I can remember. It wasn't the players. An overhaul in coaching and strategy is needed. Are you all hearing that Chris Ash can bring that?

Hey Kyle, probably a spellcheck "correction", but both Urban and Tress hail from Northeast Ohio, not Northwest. Tress was born in Mentor, (incidetally, his dad Lee coached Baldwin Wallace from '52-'80). Urban was born and raised in Ashtabula.

Hey I survived Coop, if you're going to have to sell Va Tech, it might as well be to an avid Buckeye Brother. Send 'em this way my man if you can't go !

Comment 03 Jul 2014

Gentlemen, going to show my age here. 2 questions :

1. What does "gif" mean ?

2. How can these players be on Rivals top 100 , (Hilliard being #2 LB in all the land), and still not be listed as 5 stars on their site ? 

Comment 24 Jun 2014

I went to Ohio Wesleyan with Jeff Long. He was the QB and I was his WR. We invented the back shouldr fade in 1979 because I was too slow and he was too weak to beat guys deep.  A very good man whose MO is education and integrity. He's just leading a cheer here. I guarantee you he will not enable SECism. 

Comment 20 Jun 2014

Slow news day. So where are you guys finding tickets ? $110 big game variable price (like Va Tech and UM) is jacking street price up .

Comment 12 Jun 2014

It doesn't bother me that Shazier's speed is being used to guard a top WR in the NFL as an opponent of the Browns. It bothers me that his OSU coaches couldn't figure out how to use that same speed to stop a damn WR screen for two entire seasons.

Beijing you are right on - "if you have the players".  Guys, let's not be fooled. The cupboard was EMPTY when UFM got here. (Of course Simon, Hankins, Shazier, Miller, Roby, Hyde - but from a NC level standpoint - that's it) 

I'm not disparaging JT recruiting, but Tattgate took it's toll. Now we have 4 stars 2 deep at virtually every position (save OL - but you don't need them there since you have a 5* OL coach). Meyer may miss on 2 of Marshal, Dixon , Samuel, Wilson, Brown, McLaurin, Greene, Clark, but that still leaves 5 who run 4.4 or faster !

Momentum ? Juice ? How about when the dominantly red clad crowd was in a frenzy after OSU scored 24 unanswered points,and appeared to be on their way to a BIG championship and national championship game ? D promptly gave up a score on MSU's next possession. 

I'm sure Chris Ash has scene the story of last season, and will re-design the defense to utilize the talent.

Comment 13 May 2014

if Brian Hoyer can go 3-0 , certainly Manziel can run around and go 8-8. Plus, he actually has 2 RBs, and a pretty highly drafted O line. All he needs is Jimmy Graham and we're talking wild card. He doesn't have to be Peyton Manning, just not Branden Weeden / Brady Quinn. Then next year he gets two #1's again !

Comment 05 May 2014

I agree with Buckrock. It's not doom and gloom , but as I have been saying on this post for months, these will be Herman and Meyer's championships to lose this year. Not the players. I live in Nashville (obviously) which is the heart of Alabama and SEC country. You can't fade like we did, and not see an effect. Herman cannot freeze again in 4th qtrs (Wisconsin, MSU) because when you need to open it up , you can't just turn it on (Clemson)

Comment 27 Apr 2014

Now this article makes sense to me. I am perplexed by so many who hang the past imbalance on the shoulders of #5. I think it rests squarely on Coach Herman, and you accurately listed all the reasons why he called what he did last year. #5 will be a Heisman favorite from the get go, and the balance will be planned as a multi-weapon stategy while the o line gets up to speed.
