You're stating that a bit harshly, but I agree with the sentiment.

It's wild speculation to suggest keeping him in there made his shoulder worse, but it was the wrong call to have him throwing down field at the end.  Why they kept going away from Hyde in the fourth quarter at crucial times is the greatest mystery of the 2013 season.

For all we know, JT could develop into a better QB than Braxton.

This sucks, no two ways about that, but the cupboard is far from bare.  I still wouldn't trade rosters with any other team in the B1G.

Also, any stud QB we face has to deal with the best D Line in the game.  All is not lost.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Was Braxton throwing deep on the final (meaningful) drive against Clemson the worst in-game decision Urban has ever made?  Consider the following:

  • Braxton clearly had injuries to both his ribs and shoulder
  • Kenny Guiton was widely considered the best backup QB in college football
  • Carlos Hyde

At any rate, this team will still do damage.  E + JT Barrett = O.

I love to revel in how bad they are right now, but I wouldn't judge them all by an internet forum.  One of the nicest and most intelligent co-workers I ever had was a "Michigan Man".  Great guy - I can forgive him for one mistake.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Why?

Remember that VTech has already lost two starting O-lineman for the year, and in recent years they've generally been a disappointment.  Kansas State has a good program.  I have no issue with them being ranked.

Comment 15 Aug 2014

So what you're saying is - the Clemson team that beat us wasn't any good.

Nice analysis.  I hope WInston doesn't win the Heisman, but to say he isn't special is denial.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

The thing I remember about the Alamo Bowl was how much harder the Bucks were hitting.  It seemed like they were playing a high school team.

Unfortunately, OSU needed Troy to play that game, then carry into the next season as the starter.  I think 2005 was the best of the Troy Smith teams, and that Texas and PSU would have been wins if he was the starter from day 1.

The older I get, the more of a snob I am about beer.  Craft beers are exploding in popularity for a simple reason - it's actually beer.

When I see people post something like "enjoying a cold one" and it's a pic of Bud Light or something, I can't help thinking "but that's not beer".

Comment 12 Aug 2014

It's hard to think of many performers with his range, plus it's hard to pick what was best.  His stand-up, comedic movie work, improv moments, dramatic acting...  everything was top notch.  He also looked like the kind of guy that, if push came to shove, could kick your ass.  But instead, he was apparently one of the nicest, most giving people you'd ever meet.  What an immense loss.

Comment 11 Aug 2014

Hopefully it's more unpredictable.

The only bad thing from last year is that when we really needed a first down, opposing defenses knew to key on the run.  Hopefully the passing game is more of a threat this year.

And hopefully they can use Dontre in some different looks.

Tips for the team playing baseball in Cleveland:

  • Lose the chief.  It's not a great logo anyway.
  • Lose the dynamic pricing.  It's the number 1 reason every fan gives for not coming anymore.  Try listening to them.
  • Act now.  You may have noticed the other two pro teams added some star power this year.  You are currently irrelevant.
Comment 08 Aug 2014

Given his efforts to take over Cincy as a recruiting area for OSU, I see Urban putting a little extra hurt on the kitties.

Bucks will roll in both anyway.

Comment 08 Aug 2014

I'll give you Paul.

Parker is 75 years old.  Westbrook is great, but a head case.  Rose was last healthy in the late 80's.

Look at some of the names Kyrie has been playing with.  This year is going to show him fully weaponized.  Top 3 for certain.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

Can't help you bro.  My wife loves OSU football too.  When OSU was playing at UT we were on a trip, and not only did she want to watch the game too, she agreed we could watch it at Hooters.

Comment 07 Aug 2014

The conference that is geographically aligned with where I was born and/or where I currently live has to be the best!

Comment 06 Aug 2014

Most probably know the story, but Springs' father also played at OSU, for Woody.

Shawn is a great example of how brutal sports can be.  Obviously a great Buckeye, but it's hard to remember him without thinking of the Michigan game.  It's not fair - and he's not the reason for that loss - but I bet most of us can still picture it.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

The Steelers posted their depth chart a few days ago and he's listed as the starter.

Shazier and Heyward are going to wreck people this year.  Unfortunately, Mike Adams is apparently still struggling.  A lot.
