At the risk of turning this into a Prince thread, there is a lot more too Prince looking bad because he is "on an island."  Happy Jamarco is on an island every play and has been nothing short of spectacular this year.  To your second point to him remaining the starter, Urban went on record after the Penn State game and said "there isn't someone there to replace [Prince]."  That speaks a lot more to the depth than his performance.  Fans don't need an advanced degree in film study to understand Prince has struggled mightily versus quality competition, and that is only going to get better in the playoff.  I understand he is only a sophomore and has all the potential in the world, but until that potential turns into production I don't think anyone is being unfair about his performance.

Went to a Gameday experience once and didn't find it worth my time while being there.  That doesn't even account for how early I had to get there for a decent spot.  

That said, I'm the type that will have a beer in hand at 6:00 a.m. (at the latest) with a group of friends, so our priorities might be different.

Just moved to Austin about three months ago with a fair amount of fellow Ohio State fans/grads.  By all indications Dogwood is great spot to go to watch our beloved Bucks, assuming you have no problem with downtown.  This is information I heard hearsay, not strictly from the link above as well.  

As someone else mentioned, Bar 96 is the closest combination of Rainey Street and sports you'll find, but with Oklahoma vs. Houston playing at the same time I am not taking any chances and i'll be heading to one of the alumni bars.

I am definitely buying the concern.  Burrell practiced with the Freshman the first day of camp and Knox isn't even been discussed lately as a starting candidate well into his 3rd year in the program.  Worth mentioning because these are the two Meyer said need to provide depth.  Add in the fact Bowden clearly isn't ready by Meyer's own admission, Trout practicing on 3rd team, no mentions of Lisle, and Feder being hurt doesn't inspire a lot of confidence.

It bothers me when people don't understand the significance of recruiting and rankings, especially more so when they knock others who get excited about it.  It's not a coincidence the best teams are very often on top of the yearly recruiting ranks.

I enjoy watching the game with friends at a bar a lot more than the stadium.  Each year I start seeing Ohio State Football more about the atmosphere around the stadium and an excuse to have a full day of fun with friends rather than the actual team success itself.

I hate snobby alumni who question the fanhood of those who didn't attend Ohio State.  You sir/m'am aren't half the fan as some of those said people you criticize, and frankly it is upsetting how often this happens.  

I passionately dislike Gene Smith.  He is overlooked in the whole Tatgate mess and we nearly lost Urban because he didn't impose a bowl ban on a 6-6 team.  Also, he hardly came to Tressel's support during it all.

The #FireThad fans are totally out of scope.  He brought a football school to four straight Sweet Sixteen's, the highest streak at the time.  He's earned the right to go out on his own terms, which I don't think will be long because of his health.

I agree with this logic, but if the goal is too pick the four most deserving teams what was the point of ridding the BCS system?  If the goal is too pick the four best teams then I feel we undeservedly got left out.  That's my confession.

I think one of the best thing about these QB's is the versatility they all bring.  Burrows and Haskins are pass first QB's that can also run, Clark is essentially a pure pocket passer, and Martell is the definition of duel threat.  This doesn't just give Urban multiple capabile quarterbacks, but multiple skill sets as well.

Now I hope QB Giddeon doesn't bite us again in the near in the future because with this much talent it could realistically happen.

Hey Cooper!  Fellow soon-to-be '16 grad here as well, would be neat to know if there are any other fellow 11W members joining us on Sunday.  Anyway, best of luck on your future endeavors. Go Bucks!

I want Wade as much of the next guy, as a matter of fact I don't think it would be unethical to ask a commit who was planning on enrolling early to wait until the summer so we can make room for him.  That said I wouldn't throw Wint under the bus like that, looks like we all have something to be excited about with him.
