  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2003 National Championship game with OSU beating Miami

Louisville will have to really hump Clemson to make that move, but it is feasible.  The Puke and Blue would not pass the Buckeyes with a win, unless OSU only squeaks out a victory over Rutgers (and pigs fly) ....

Two years ago, the Badgers had a top 5 defense, if I'm correct and they were taken to the woodshed by the Buckeyes in the Big Ten finals (59 - 0), with a 3rd string QB, who had only a few snaps under center in game conditions ..... Never underestimate our coaching staff and how they prepare this team to play an opponent.

I do agree that our toughest game will be the Badgers on their home field, but Sparty is proving to be toothless and Michigan is coming to the Shoe with a mad man behind the bench (Hairball), so I like our chances for the balance of the season.

Offenses go, as the offensive line goes .... a good O-Line makes a good running back, great and a QB can't complete many passes while laying on his back .... If you're planning on building a great offensive team, start at the O-Line and move outwards from there ...

...... Oh, just to clarify - MSU does not have a better O-Line than OSU .... MSU hung on to beat Notre Shame, which is currently tied 21 - 21 with Duke .... Not impressed with any part of their offense and you can't win without scoring points, regardless of how good your defense is (and MSU's defense is good, but not great, especially in the back end) .... Coach Dantonio will be out of the running early this season (and God, I hate to say this, but he loses to the Puke & Blue this season, as well) ..... JMHO

As the announcer indicated, that punt return for a TD with only 8 OSU players on the return team is a record that will never be beaten and really underscores the idea that the Buckeyes beat a Pop Warner team that day .... with the biggest cheese ball on the field being Mark May ..... However, May did have his important role in OSU football - he was a source of hatred and a rallying cry for all of the Buckeye faithful, every time he opened his big yapper .....  As Gunnery Sargent Hartmen stated, "I didn't know they stacked shit that high" .....

Just think of all those recruits standing on the sidelines watching the game - I figure half of their questions about what school will develop them best, were just answered ....

Comment 18 Sep 2016

I wonder if Gallimore, the big DT from Canada, is having flashbacks to his OSU offer now .......

Comment 11 Sep 2016

Best highlight of the game, was just before the half, when Lattimore picked the ball and headed, initially, down the right side line.  Out front was Hooker, who absolutely pancaked a Tulsa O-Lineman near the 5 yard line.  Lattimore, cut off that block and headed cross-field and into the end zone.

Take a minute, watch the replay of the pick 6 and keep your eye on #24 leading Marshon down the right side line .......

He gets my Orlando Pace award for the game !!!

Let's see - McLaurin with 3 receptions, Brown with 1 and Campbell with 1 reception .... That was the extent of our passing game to the wide receivers and none of them were completed on deep routes .... Our TE's might as well have been extra offensive tackles ....

Most of the minimal passing game went to Samuels (but, with such a talent, why not ??) .....

As has been mentioned, JT has been holding onto the ball a bit longer than usual through these first two games, but it may not be all on him, as our young receiving corps still needs to work on getting separation from their coverage much quicker.  I remember when Urban first came on board, that this was a huge issue - receiver's failing to get separation from defenders. 

I believe that this group, if they stay healthy, will be special and although we're playing probably 7 units strong right now, we'll be rolling along with 9 units strong going into Sooner country next Saturday night - GO BUCKS !!!!!!

Comment 10 Sep 2016

While today should be another convincing win, I can't help but remember how poorly the Buckeyes played last year in the rain against MSU .... Don't look for any 60 point spread and I expect the Bucks to put no more than 42 points on the board against Tulsa .... This Tulsa team will keep it closer than is comfortable for most of the Buckeye Nation, but our depth will wear down their starters and we'll pull away in the final two quarters ..... JMHO

The Puke & Blue beat a team that was still on the fight home from the Outback (and I don't mean steakhouse) and that were going to get blown off the field by a Pop Warner squad (hmmm, sounds exactly what happened) ....

Truthfully, M*chigan does have some solid players, but the head fruit-loop will find a way to screw up their season with questionable calls (see last year's Michigan State game) and on field antics .....

As for the rankings, well, I'd put my money on Houston ahead of Michigan in the rankings.  It would be Mensa against the Mentally Challenged and I know where my dollars would go .....

Comment 05 Sep 2016

It's pretty cut and dry .... What player would pick off the ball and then run it down the field holding the ball up in the air, prancing and with no other LSU player in hot pursuit.  Sorry, Les, but you look like as guilty as the 346 pounder that laid the Badger out.  By the way, a tackle usually includes wrapping the arms around the target, not punching both hands into the player's shoulder pads ....

I understand the kid's frustration with the loss (and the STUPID pass his QB threw - wonder if it was his man that slipped through to apply the pressure, adding to his frustration), but come clean and admit it was a stupid, cowardly, cheap shot, instead of trying to rationalize it .......

For those that are interested, the BTN game being shown at noon on Saturday in Ottawa, Canada is OSU vs BG ...... on BTN

GO BUCKS !!!!!

Monsieur Corso - I fart in your general direction .... Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of Elderberry wine ......

Comment 20 Aug 2016

Very sad that the only highlight of Theisman's career was the clip of him having his leg snapped, since that is truly the only image that jumps to peoples minds when you mention his name.  J.T. had the same thing happen to him, but that's not the memory people will have of him when his career at OSU is completed - they'll just be shaking their heads in amazement at all the OSU records he'll have shattered ....

Kelly's QB looked great in the Bowl game against us .... although it was tough for him to complete a lot of passes while he was on his back for most of the game.

Joe is a turd .... Sorry, but it was the best thing I could think of to say about him .....

It's pretty evident, if you watch the beginning of the whole tape.  Josh's first two reps, he sits down well, squares up on the defender and gets his hands inside .... then, he starts to lean, as if he's going to run block and allows the defender to get in on his body and it forces Josh to grab the defender in what would result as a hold.  All he needed to do after first contact was sit down again, kick step and punch .... OSU will coach him up .....
