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.

Tweets from this time last year and yds per play stats are uncanny. Also, someone posted another blast from the past  Mr. Whipple the toilet paper pervert.  This is an amazing day !

AND the Buckeyes are still #1?  Awesome Tuesday

Hey guys and staff, the in-game thread was absolutely toxic. I wasn't able to watch the game with anyone down here, and so I set out to share comments with fellow Buckeye fans. I lasted about a minute and resorted to a conversation (sometimes yelling match) with my TV). But the tweets on the thread and to players must have been from the same guys. What can be done ?

Wilson is delusional. We had three turnovers, not a couple, two were in the red zone and one around midfield. Plus we clanged a FG try off the upright, dropped a sure INT, gave them 7 first downs on penalties, AND bobbled a punt coverage into the end zone that would have pinned them on their half yard line.  The only thing we didn't do was to tie our hands behind our backs. 

So gentlemen, what we have here is a moral victory inside a win. We did all that we could to give it away and still won !

Just watched the replay. 5 not so obvious observations   :

1. Vannett was targeted about 5 times in the first half and looked good for those who say we don't use the TE.

2. We can't sit Marshall - he has a great repore with jones on the middle crossing pattern and it was successful in the first half. He is also wide open on slants which jones missed in the end zone.  - he needs to take a lesson in ball to body once he makes the catch.

3. On 4 designed QB  runs, Jones completely stopped moving his legs, unlike the playoff run where he bowled over that. 300 LB NT from Oregon.

4. Jones only missed a few passes in the first half - he was pretty good actually accept in missing Thomas and Marshall in the red zone. 2ndhalf was bad.

5. Josh Perry doesn't have his name called a lot during a game, but he is always around the ball and often among the last  off the pile.

i feel a lot better about our team - there are actually a lot of positives when you watch play by play the way the team will in films (no emotion - Xs and Os)

Thanks for the thoughtful response. Actually I have commented hundreds of times over two + years , and this is the first down vote I remember - ergo my questions about how it works. Also, thanks for the directional arrow advice 

overall I do agree with you and am glad you talked me off the ledge. But seriously, living in SEC country is a daily challenge year round. IT's hard to argue with Bama fans when we aren't in mid season form against lesser foes. 

I assure I am not that guy - I get that UFM is at the pinnacle. But I have felt he is struggling with how to spread the ball among the talent.

Doesn't mean I am not a huge fan and will spend another $1200+ for bowl game  tix just like I did last year's Sugar Bowl. Believe me, my money is where my mouth is and I am not just a living room fan. Thanks again for the thoughtful advice. 90 minutes away from kickoff now !

did you read my comment later ? Basically explaining what it's like living in Crimson Tide country. When you have Block  O's and an OSU helmet in your office, you receive a barrage of disparaging remarks about your team's schedule and performance.  And it does force you to be more objective.

so let me ask you objectively, (and please don't site the fact that you can't exceed 4-0 , because that really is a given with this schedule ) - do you think the staff has done a great / good / or average job to this point ?

Mike, ArchCity, ScarletGray

you guys are all correct in your rebuttals. Especially Scarlett - do you have any idea what it would be like to see a majority of script A logos on people at grocery stores and sports bars ? Brutal.  Anything short of a dynasty won't shut these people up and I live with the schedule comments EVERY day. 

So yeah, I would have liked to see the coaching staff come out with a QB and offensive identity , and spank these crap teams by 40 points. I rock block O's often and pretty much attract the comments. But that's what I want - an OSU dynasty - and the pipeline is there to do that. Sorry to sound negative on staff and QB.

Comment 03 Oct 2015

I'm sorry guys, but I don't give a shit if they wear breast cancer awareness pink. Until this coaching staff gets their collective heads out of their collective asses, we aren't going anywhere. Seriously, we worry about odd defensive fronts ? OMG, the Va Tech bear was invented in 1986 and we still belly ache that we were unprepared for it ? Please show me something today and #12 please anticipate a receiver breaking open like high school QBs do all over the country every Friday night.

The uniform variants are for the kids - and 40 something 11 Warriors will have to deal. (Btw I turn 56 today !) 

i must say, I loooove the size of the numbers on the 90's uniform in yesterday's Skully video vs Notre Dame. Eddie's #27 was so bold and in your face !

A high ranking exec at work who is a TTUN alum stopped me in the hall at work yesterday to say "we are in the top 25 and we're going to give you a HELL of a game."  

Just start this machine like last year boys and kick the shit out of those misdirected Ohioans in blue.
