Recruiting is so fluid. What if your son always wanted to be a Buckeye, but was not offered initially and committed elsewhere. Then OSU came calling before signing day. Would you make him sick to his initial commitment? I see your frustration, but it's a big decision in their lives. Kids commit so early these days that you're kind of forced to make an early decision to make sure you have a spot somewhere
Can you imagine how easy its going to be for the master motivator Urban Meyer to get the team foaming at the mouth for this game next year? If they aren't already, that is. If this game is within 4 TDs I will be shocked.
I have a friend close to the program.. He is pretty adament Braxton will be moving to H-Back. I think the shoulder injury is a bigger concern than ppl have let on. Take it for what it's worth. Either way, we cant go wrong with any of these guys. Go Bucks!
What a guy!
Kid is an animal. It was good to see him celebrating at Toos last night..haha
We should lend whoever doesn't win the starting QB job to a couple teams in order to make at least two games competitive..
SO excited for this game against Bama. No one outside of Ohio is giving us a chance, and that's exactly the way this team likes it..
You just get the feeling that this team is so tight-knit and gritty that there aren't going to allow each other to lose.. In spite of the circumstance, I'm strangely confident that we're going to win this ball game.
Burrow, yes. But I wouldn't be so sure that we don't see Gibson playing some wide out.. I know we've promised him a shot at QB, but how can you keep his athleticism off the field?? A nice dilemma to have, for sure.
Great stories Alta and Bucknut. Makes me excited to share The Game with my son like I have with my father. One thing I am thankful for today is the bond Buckeye football has helped build with my father, as I'm sure is the case with a lot of us here. While football may be just a game, the relationships that have formed from my love of Buckeye football are immeasurable. Go Bucks, and enjoy your time with family today, my friends!
120 a year!? To show what, other than 2 games a year? There's hardly even enough to fill 24 hours on the cable channel without showing BTN Live 12 times..
I see your point, but Ole Miss and FSU just agreed to kick off the '16 season with a game.. If we really wanted to add a quality opponent, even if that means going to their place, i think we could.
I see what you're saying, but if we want the committee to put less weight on the VT game, couldn't TCU make the same argument that they too have improved since they played in week 2? Regardless, style points matter and a drubbing of Minny would be ideal!
I feel ya. However, I'm just going to enjoy every minute of this season and JT's performance, then worry about next year after the seasons over. Here's to beating the Gophers!
And thats the conservative estimate of his career trajectory..
I cant get enough of this win!
Wouldve been really nice if Minny coulda snuck into the top 25.. Regardless, im still pinching myself after that offensive performance last night. WOW. Go Bucks
Love it! Anyone else super annoyed with Bengals players and fans alike completely discrediting the Browns win? I mean, i realize the Bengals played terrible, but when a team beats you by 3 scores I dont see how you can say theyre not any good (cough cough Jeremy Hill)
Love the motivation, but Im still uneasy about the play of the offensive line. Hope the boys can step up and we design a gameplan that can minimize MSU's pass rush.
Honestly, Im glad we didnt drop further. We didnt look like a top 10 team yesterday, IMO. Still a lot of improvements that need to be made before we play MSU.
I shotgun more beers in a half than we punt... Okay, maybe not, but 1. Im enjoying my 5th year too much and 2. We never punt.
Style of play reminds me of Craig Krenzel. Athletic, but not overly so, yet still makes people miss. Looks fairly accurate as well. Definitely serviceable.
I used to be a National Title or bust type of fan.. but then I realized that that's an awful way of looking at things.. think about it. In the last 40 years, OSU has won just one title. One. Winning it all is very, very hard. A BCS bowl is a great season and its something we should enjoy thoroughly. Save for Bama, OSU has been the gold standard in the BCS era. We are spoiled, my friends!
Oh, and those basketball Buckeyes have been on one of the best runs in the programs history..
Man, its good to be a Buckeye!
Alex Smith had a huge year in '04.. Can't forget Tebow, of course. I'd be pleased if JT comes anywhere close to those guys.
Really hope Cardale or JT can distribute the ball to our playmakers.. I'm not at all confident that we'll see Braxton in '14
Great win. Crazy that Grant is gone.. gotta think Notre Dame struggles to make the tourny without him.
