Hate losing to Penn State but honestly this is not a damning loss. OSU is still in good shape if it can win out. last 2 years the losses were wake up calls, and hopefully this year is the same.
I'm not cut out for corporate America. I've been saving very hard for the past 2 years so I can leave my current job and pursue a startup dream with a buddy of mine. I've worn the golden handcuffs for far too long. I have a great job that pays very well but I'm miserable every day I'm there. Time for a change because life is too short.
Offense was pedestrian today, but I'm not worried about them. The defense was OUTSTANDING. That 4th and 1 stop was championship caliber.
Indiana is selling out like crazy to stop the run, and it's working because they have a decent front 7. Need JT to make a big play or two to keep them honest.
Incredibly lucky to have him coaching our players.
I think you're right that this is a vacation trip....plenty of recruits will do this because it's a paid trip where you get royal 5 star treatment and get to take in a great gameday atmosphere. I'd criticize DPJ but can't because I'd probably do the same thing in his shoes. Of course....you never know with Urban.
Never say never with Urban Meyer.
Thoughts on the Louisville-Clemson game?
My favorite recruit from the class. He really wanted to be a Buckeye above all else and had a very mature and unselfish attitude. That's hard to find these days. I understand his reasoning, just hope that he wasn't pushed by the staff to de-commit or grayshirt.
Always going to have some bruised egos when their number doesn't get called as much in big time games. Thing is....Meyer has enough credibility with NFL scouts and coaches that if someone like Paris Campbell or Dontre Wilson don't have gaudy stats at the end of the year but were excellent team players, someone will pick them up. Look at our tight ends.....very pedestrian numbers but excellent at blocking and still get drafted.
Have you ever worked in Sales? I doubt it, because I have and I can tell you that the vast majority of deals I close are because I have a great professional relationship with the client and they trust me. I don't always have the best price or even best solution to offer them, but I still get the business. Recruiting is the EXACT same way. Have to really take time to get to know these kids and make them feel important to the future of your program. The moment you take someone for granted is the moment you lose out on a prospect.
My first reaction was.....who the **** else has 7 picks already? Apparently Cincinnati and Nebraska.
I feel compelled to point out that a grown man is wearing a power ranger t-shirt in schiano's interview. Good man.
Urban has said in the past that if the offense isn't playing well during the week's game prep, he will NOT open the playbook on gameday. He only calls plays that he is confident can be executed during that specific time/game. To his credit, we have had some ugly performances, but have always had a chance to win the game, even with very conservative/predictable playcalling.
At this point, opposing teams have seen most of his playbook and have a general idea of what he's going to call, so there's not really much to "hold back" even if Urban wanted to.
Yes, I logged in just to upvote this. Please tell me you have a an archive somewhere of every gif you've ever created?
Your trip is not terribly timed. You're taking a fantastic journey with your wife that you'll remember for the rest of your life. Do not plan your trip around watching Buckeye games...the team isn't going anywhere. Keep track of game updates and watch the full games when you get home. Trust me, you'll be fine and you (AND your wife) will be much happier.

Don't count on it. The management has the patience of a 5 year old child in the cereal aisle.
Jackson sounds like he might be a keeper.....which means the Browns management will fire him after 1 season.
Agreed, unless there is a very compelling reason to do otherwise (i.e. OSU has a much better program for what you want to pursue, job prospect are much better, etc.)
This is a business decision for you. First look at what career field you want to pursue, and look at the amount of money you expect to be making out of college. If you end up taking 50k plus in student loans and you make 50k/yr, it's going to take forever to pay those back. Do you want to raise a family? See where I'm going with this? I realize you're young and this is hard to take in but please consider what kind of situation you want to have after college and how much you expect to be making. I have multiple friends saddled with 100k plus in student loans for useless degrees and they work at Starbucks. Don't let that be you.
I'm already checked out for the week....too much excitement
Definitely Lincoln, NE.
Love that stadium and their fans btw. True college football town, great fans and atmosphere
Ones I have seen my friends attempt: Mary Kay, Avon, Nerium, Quixtar, Cutco. I have yet to see anyone make enough to quit their day job, but have sure seen a lot of them spend hundreds (if not thousands) of their own money and many hours of their time trying to make it work. I've also seen this stuff break up families and destroy friendships. Just not worth it imo.
