I cannot picture this team going undefeated...I just can't. But by week 12, this will no longer be an inexperienced team, and if they gel at the right time, you never know what could happen. I am in agreement that we have just as much talent as any other top program in the country right now.

I disagree w/ some of the teams ahead of us, but his assessment is fair. With only 6 starters returning between offense and defense, this team will no doubt experience some growing pains. I think a 9-3 or 10-2 season is a reasonable expectation.

Although Saban and co. have had their fair share of infractions in recent years, it is irrelevant when it comes to using it as grounds to shut them up about satellite camps. B1G schools are using these camps to gain a recruiting footprint in SEC country, so of course they're trying to stop it. As long as all school are able to do this then I don't see the issue.

-When people double book my calendar for meetings

-When I get booked for meetings that are not necessary for me to attend

-People who use all caps in an email in a futile attempt to make a point

-Excessively loud the point where it sounds like a keyboard is being assaulted.

I don't think a single soul in this thread holds it against you ( I certainly don't). It is a rotten disease that has claimed far too many amazing people. Prayers to you and your family. Stay strong.

My uncle, Michael Herbert has an unknown cancer affecting his central nervous system and was placed on hospice care last month. He's been a Catholic priest for the last 20 years and has touch many lives through his ministry. Please pray for him and for my father, who is grieving for his brother.

Much like this year, the 2005 Buckeyes were so close to reaching the title. That OSU team (IMO) would've beaten anyone in the nation by the end of the season. I'm a bit ambivalent on the NFL because well....I'm a Browns fan and it's just depressing to think about.

Uber is soooooo much better than a cab

Comment 22 Aug 2015

My thoughts:

-OSU fans need to accept that this game will not be a blowout. In fact, it will probably be close through 3 quarters, if not longer. 

-VT fans need to accept that their team is probably going to lose.

Marson Lattimore and Tyquan Lewis projected as starters (CB and DE). I'm wondering how this will turn out, consider Meyer has already pegged Gareon Conley as starting CB and mentioned Sam Hubbard and Tyquan Lewis splitting reps at DE.

Haha, just going by the global insights department in the company I work for. FWIW, I'm not too far behind you ;)

Cable companies (and channels that depend on them) in general should be worried. "Millennials" (~ages 20-37) and younger don't purchase cable packages anymore. We stream via Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, or if it's a game we watch at a bar...the writing is on the wall. Ramzy makes a great point in that no one is "quitting" live sports. We simply have different tastes/preferences for how we consume them. I actually think "WATCHESPN" is the future of the company. They need to find as many ways as possible to integrate their online streaming services across as many platforms as possible. I think they made a great move when they incorporated the WATCHESPN app as a part of Xbox Live. That's the type of thinking they'll need going forward IMO.

Such a luxury to have 3 quarterbacks that are proven and can get the job done. It just ain't right....for the rest of CFB :)

Thx for the writeup! While I think it's way too early to speculate next year's class, I think it's safe to say OSU will be in the mix for quite a few blue chip recruits. UFM has all the momentum and a great coaching/recruiting staff so I dare say this will be a top 3 class, no matter how it ends up. 

I think Walker, Bosa, and McCall stay with the good guys. Gary would be a fantastic get but it's really going to depend on how his spring visit goes. Way too early to CB him imo.
