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.

Bucks fan and Urbanbuck are right on, right on, right on. Loved  Tressel's lock down of state borders, but the offense was an insult to great recruits. Run right, run left, Terrelle scramble. I was at the USC game and it was a shame.

Urban plays to win the game - helloooo

It makes total sense. You come out with JT and run the machine to a two TD lead. Just as the defense is back on their heels, you bring in Cardale and start throwing javelins. - and when no one is open, he runs over a nose tackle on his way to moving the chains. The beauty of this is how it weighs on the next week's opponent.

... and the wear and tear on JT is minimized !

Michibuck - I don't understand the nervousness. First , we play with house money since we won the whole shebang last year. ( I don't know how that word crept in this morning but I'm pretty sure I'll start using it now).  2nd, by UFM's own admission, this is our year. 3rd, we have more depth than ever.  4th,  this is probably the best coaching staff we have seen at OSU.

Stay joyful my friend and enjoy this five year ride.  And don't forget, we have the best damn band in the land besides.

I was at Sam's Club last night -one UT fan passed another near a display of Vol jerseys. He said "two weeks and a day" and kept walking. I looked at the dude with my black "Undisputed" tee shirt on - and gave him a nod. He fired back "you guys are just loaded." I felt like a proud father and wasn't even pissed anymore that my wife made me go.

I do all kinds of crap like that all year just to keep peace - but fall Saturdays are coming and my cojones are growing back again.

Comment 12 Aug 2015

The decision was made last year in ten days. JT broke every possible big ten record and would have been the starter in the BiG Championship. Cardale will play a ton, but the decision remains the same.

Besides, who recruited CJ12 and who recruited JT ?  It seems academic to me.

Comment 09 Aug 2015

I guess I WILL go to Titans games this year after all - it will certainly beat going to the Crows Nest in Green Hills (Nashville) with the Browns Backers to watch the Browns' weekly second half collapses)

Comment 08 Aug 2015

The Horseshoe is awesome and every HS player would love to play in it. But Massillon Paul Brown, and Canton's Tom Benson stadiums have an allure of their own. The upgrades to Benson include reconfiguring  the stadium so that you can see the Hall of Fame over the end zone stands. 

Pro Football Hall of Fame , Horseshoe - what great options for these kids.

when you get upset about Terrell Hall, just think of Kyle Kalis- that ought to make you feel better.  There, we fixed that didn't we ?

Comment 03 Aug 2015

ok , so what are the nine units that Urban refers to, such as "all nine units played excellent today" ?

Here's my guess :

Offense,    Defense,     FG,      Kickoff,      Kickoff Return,      Punt,      Punt Return,      Onsides Kick Return,      Goal Line Defense

Comment 03 Aug 2015

But the WR play of all plays was Evan Spencer's block of two Bama LB's , springing 85 yards through the heart of the south

- this is a play I will celebrate until I pass into the great horseshoe in the sky. It emboldens me every day as a resident of Nashville  Alabama (Tennessee actually - but Alabama in reality)

BigTom

it's not what "people" think about the conference unless those people are the playoff selection committee and parents of recruits.  It means a lot. 

The reason it doesn't matter in the NFL is because if you win your division, you are in the playoffs - period. No voting, no rankings.

Comment 02 Aug 2015

The problem with the Big Ten's rep is not at the top - everyone knows that OSU and MSU will be in the conversation and will win Bowl games. The problem is always that the next tier of 3-4 teams (PSU, UM, Nebraska, Wisconsin) usually don't provide enough in-conference competition as LSU, Ole Miss, Miss State,  Georgia, & Missouri. It's hard to argue that our "gauntlet" is tougher than Alabama and Auburn's.

We know that OSU and MSU can take the top teams in the SEC and Big 12. But these next four ... Not so much

Comment 31 Jul 2015

Sorry Michibuck - this is stupid as it comes especially for Bosa. You think NFL teams don't pay attention to this stuff  ? Plain ass stupid - sit them down for four games. 

Show the next crop that you play football for THE and if you want to smoke weed, sit your ass down, go to Florida State, or wait until you're career is over.. Period.

Braxton, Parris, Curtis, Hubbard - come on down and show why you should be the starters !

Comment 28 Jul 2015

Johnson should have said "it (brand recognition ) came into play with FSU".  They  made the playoffs as the only undefeated team  and yet weren't the top seed.  And they proved they didn't belong by getting throttled by a team that gave up 42 points in the NCG WITH the benefit of 4 turnovers ! 

How he actually uttered these comments about OSU is mind boggling. Coach, don't let the facts get in your way.

Comment 25 Jul 2015

Some 11warriors have questioned whether Braxton can catch in a crowd or knowing he'll be hit. 

The only big hits I remember on OSU H backs or WRs last year, were shots taken by Jalin Marshall vs Alabama that knocked his helmet off. I think the O scheme gets these guys free in space a lot and Braxton will have time to build confidence.

Comment 24 Jul 2015

Now it's a lot clearer. Whatever inputs that went into the decision to start JT last year not only still exist, they are now magnified by a record breaking TD season. There is your QB decision, playoffs notwithstanding .

Comment 22 Jul 2015

SEC type player ?  on defense ? I love that. Urban should turn it around to show how how many points per game they give up. As it turns out, that's an insult.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

DJ - why keep bringing up the point that Tom Herman was questioned early last year ?

Look, when we lost to VT , the coaching staff admitted that they didn't know what to do against the bear defense. Shouldn't that bother honest fans ?

So I don't think the fact that people questioned Tom Herman early last season is such a great sin. But when the offense churned out 50 point week after 50 point week - the doubters were turned into supporters very quickly. It didn't take the playoffs for people to realize how special the offense and the OC were. 

Comment 18 Jul 2015

On one hand, Cardale lengthened the field and pressured defenses in a way that they still can't explain.

on the other hand, Braxton is athletically off the charts to begin with,  is in the best shape of his life, and has talent all around him that can't be ignored by a D. He can't be defended.

on the other hand, JT is the best all around QB and runs the system such that he would probably break the records he set last year.

on the other hand, there is no other hand. Divide each game into three sections and let them all play !
