I don't know if we've seen as much from Kwon in pass coverage as we have from Grant. (Or Grant is simply more memorable because it has been ugly). However, I like the instincts and quickness that Kwon provides on every play vs. Grant and that's why he needs to be in.

“They’re a more conventional team and hopefully if they come out and play conventional we’ll be able to play Buckeye football.”

And if they don't, well, we're f'd.

There's something fundamentally wrong with this statement and some of the statements heard after the game like it's the other team's fault for the Bucks not being prepared for whatever they might throw at them.

Anybody see them televise the team entrance at Clemson for the FSU/Clemson game last year? Pretty impressive and it gets the crowd going nuts before they run down the hill. While it is ridiculous the team has to get on a bus, it built the excitement up to televise them entering the bus and then getting escorted around the stadium.

For the new tunnel, maybe they'll have some cameras in the tunnel or before as the players stream out from the locker room and then show some hard-hitting highlights just before they run out. Fans would LOSE THEIR MINDS.

The first three gifs above feature some nasty cut blocks. Grant gets blown up on the big Lee play, I can't see who the MLB is in the second one and then an attempted cut block on Grant in the third as well as a DB getting taken out.

Anybody else notice they amplify the band in the Big Hole? Every time tOSU marching band would start up, they were drowned out by their band coming through the speakers. Turn it up to 11, I guess. Cheaters.

Many conversations at work:

"Did you see the XYZ game?"

"No, I don't have XYZ network."

"Bummer, dude."

I was looking forward to a good USC/TAMU matchup only to find that they put it on the SEC network. Talk about an excitement deflator.

Urban considers the mental state of the team and the timing of his comments. You can't go out and say the receivers are a bunch of clowns when everyone's a little down after Braxton's injury. That does nothing for their self confidence. It's almost a good cop/bad cop thing. The media is down on the Buckeyes' chances now so it's his job to give them some hope and build them up.

Is there a doctor in the house? I want an opinion about his likelihood of coming back. 11W may need a doctor on staff....

This is not good company. The NFL torn labrum club:

Besides the very old post below from a Chargers website, I found, obviously, Drew Brees (the exception), Mark Sanchez and Blaine Gabbert

Brian Griese (2000) - came back and had a couple more decent years, but was never the same as he was during the 2000 season (19 TD/4 INT in 10 games).

Rich Gannon (2003) - tried coming back, but had to retire in 2004.

Tim Couch (Feb 2004) - tried to make a comeback but didn't play since 2003.

Kelly Holcomb (2004) -was able to return week 10 of 2004

Anthony Wright (May 2004) - missed the entire 2004 season and did not play well in 2005.

Jay Fiedler (2005) - partial tear in week 3, but wasn't able to return last season

Chad Pennington (2004, 2005) - tore rotator cuff as well as his labrum in 2004. Reinjured his arm in 2005 after rushing back 4 months after surgery.

And everyone's favorite:

Ryan Leaf (1999) - how much his torn labrum had to do with his failure is unknown since he was already on his way to self-destructing, but it's certain that he was never able to improve after the injury.

I just have to say that not having CBS Sports really blows this time around. I really want to see how the team responds and how well JT does. Yes, I can go to a bar but I like to yell loudly in the comfort of my home. Plus, it conveys how important this is to the children.
