Absolutely thrilled with the last 2 commits.  Patrick looks to be a beast. 

Comment 20 Oct 2014
It works for a lot of high level NFL players. I think it was our own Chris Spielman who said he talked himself into actually believing the guy lined up opposite him had kidnapped his family and the only way to get them back was beating his man every play. Rob Carpenter also tried to fire up our team by having us recount the worst thing that's ever happened to us and feeding off that anger. Worked for him.

Man he sure is looking good week after week.  I think his next test will come when he faces adversity from a very strong defense or is trying to rally his team from a deficit.  I think both could possibly come against MSU.  He will pass both with flying colors.

I'll tell you right now, if I'm the coach at OU and my boy gets offered by OSU, I'd do everything in my power to push him towards to OSU.  To be able to play at the highest level and possibly a professional career is more important than playing for his dad.  His dad will always be there behind him all the way.

I took this as meaning that Meyer is recognizing the fact that he needs 1 RB to get into a groove. Its hard for that guy to find that when their is constant rotation with other guys. Samuel and Smith will get carries, but Elliot will get more of the bulk load. He's proven he deserves that for now.

Pinning Penn St. and Miami in that title year were critical plays. Kicking game is often overlooked. I'll remember Nugent, Groom and Sanders.

Bo Jackson and Jameis Winston should never be mentioned in the same sentence that includes 2 sport athletes.
Comment 13 Oct 2014
SOMETIMES a player needs some guidance when it comes to his best position. I know everybody wants to be the QB, but if he can contribute more to the team winning at another position, then maybe he should listen. (Not speaking about the Gibson situation). I'll mention Buster Howe again. Coaches tell him he can start as a true freshman at DB, but he wants to play RB and promptly gets buried on OSU's depth chart (Back in the days of Snow, Graham, etc.). Now I admire a player who is single minded and is determined to play at a certain position, but it is unfortunate Howe never saw significant PT to contribute.

He also does claim to know him.

My fellow Buckeye fan, you need to learn to enjoy things while you have them.
Comment 05 Oct 2014
Agreed. As much as I hate to say it, but Alvarez is a wise man. He will not rush to judgment.
Comment 05 Oct 2014
Elliot is our guy. He makes the sharpest cuts with precision. Many of them were immediately after the hand off, so instead of a 1 yard loss, he would have a 6 yard gain. They need to leave a back in for the majority of the game to get into his groove. I'm all for rotation, but it's hard for a player to get a feel for the game with one carry every 3 drives. Anyone else catch the patience of Dontre with his hand on Zeke's back, waiting for him to block? Excited about this team.

He is the type of QB I prefer. Pinpoint passer, occasionally run for a first down, and he can extend plays with his legs. Also has calm and poise in the pocket, good vision and can make good reads (run or pass). Gonna be fun to watch him grow and perform against a quality defense down the road.

If they fail on all of their premiere choices, why not look in state for a diamond in the rough.  That's what we did with Tressel.  Find someone with a strong winning record, has built up a great program and lead an intensive interview process to gain a feel to see if he can handle the pressure at the next level.  They have to have some good coaches up there at lower level programs who learned their football in Ohio.  Another example for our home state diamonds in the rough would be Larry Kehres who used to coach at Mount Union.  This would be more of a stretch than Tressel, but I think he would do fine at any level.

M Man, I understand your defense of your team and all, but sometimes you just have to face the music and say, "it's not good enough; I will not defend all of these problems and call on my home program to do better."  I know I had to do it in the Cooper years, it was awful; but I had no defense.  I worked with a TTUN fan and he owned me for 11 years and there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it.  I took my lumps, admitted OSU's problems, and hoped for a better day.  It eventually came in the form of a vest and continues today.
