It may be illegal to donate $$ to the player, but not to their families. As long as the player doesn't directly receive any of the cash, I don't see the legal barrier....
I remember 2002....we had NO chance. I specifically remember Mark May and TREV ALBERTS (anyone remember this clown?) saying the Bucks would lose by a couple touchdowns. The Bucks won.
I remember 2006....we were dominant all season long. We could not be stopped...Heisman trophy QB... Florida had no chance. Florida killed us....btw the 55 day layover between games played a big role as well imo.
I remember 2007...the apocalypse happened during the last week of the regular season. Bucks had no business being in the national title that year....Tressel called a terrible game...Bucks got rolled.
It's 2014...Bucks have overcome tremendous adversity....replaced multiple starters...shined during big-time games...they are ready. Bama may win but this game is NOT a gimme.
I give up. WTH does the post mean?
After the prequels it can burn in hell.
This always seems to happen when OSU isn't executing. Coaches go into conservative "play not to lose" mode. It's good enough to win us games against inferior opponents but we pull this crap against a team like Bama, Oregon, or even Wisky, WE WILL LOSE because OSU cannot rely on defense to win games.
OSU still does not have a complete game this season....let's stop with the turnover nonsense and beat our opponent into submission.
Comparing to Aguayo is ridiculous...he's the best kicker in the country. But I agree that Nuernberger hasn't performed up to standards this year. I think it's too late this season to make a change, but it's pretty clear at this point OSU cannot rely on the kicking game to win games.
From a margin of victory standpoint...yes this team is similar. But the 2002 OSU could play defense....that's what won them the championship.
Missed FG cost BC a shot at the game. That was huge....
Crap. That FG miss was huge. FSU now has the momentum.
I think ESPN likes the TV ratings OSU will bring in more than anything else. I think they've decided to back us for this reason alone, honestly.

Except that this week it makes sense. The Bucks are coming off 3 straight night games and playing their most physical opponent of the year last week. A couple of guys are roughed up and they're on the road again playing in the cold weather against a well-coached team hungry for a statement win. Do I think OSU loses? No. But this has all the makings of a possible upset.
For anyone wondering, the track in this video is "Kara Kul" by Mark Petrie. It's in the Green Lantern soundtrack.
Wait and see at this point. I think it will depend on how JT fares against B1G competition. If he leads the team to a birth in the CCG and a BCS bowl (or playoff) it will be awfully hard to bench him next year....especially since he's the future of this program.
Sparty looks great. That being said, this game should never have been played.
Great find! I've thought this for a long time now, and the author does a good job articulating it. TAMU and MIZZOU (in just 2 years time) have both had tremendous success in CFB's most elite conference, and it isn't because they started drinking magic koolaid upon their arrivals that suddenly gave them elite talent and "SEC speed.". It's because they've developed excellent game plans offensively and the rest of the league is slow to adjust.
To be honest.....the people saying "take a chill pill....trust Urban" are almost as annoying as the people saying "PANIC". The truth (as I see it):
Ohio State has hit a dry spell on the recruiting trail. Anyone who says this isn't just a little bit concerning is flat-out lying. That being said, I think the recent string of rejections are more symptomatic of Urban offering many more recruits than Tress....this leads to more rejections. Urbs has also taught me never to judge a recruiting class until after NSD so I will withhold judgment until then. But I think even Urbs would admit that he's not happy with the way the class has turned out at this point.
Hard to feel like this season is still a big battle for the right to lose to Alabama!
Thanks guys, good insights! Although I don't see this game being close....at all. I could see maybe a 10 pt game at halftime but there's no way they hang with tOSU for 4 quarters.
42-10 OSU GO BUCKS!
