If I ditch cable and Bama plays Clemson, some people I know in Columbus are not going to find somewhere to watch the game. I might, but my girlfriend isn't.

There was a guy yesterday who posted about meeting Devier Posey in his complex who didn't give his name either, People do it all the time on 11W. He said he tipped well (which may be TMI, you are right)

That being said, him driving a nice car might not mean anything. I wouldn't jump to conclusions.

I never expect a true freshman to start. I may expect PT, and heavy rotation for an EE wouldn't surprise me, but I never an expectation that they will start.

Some of the interviews on BTN and online quote Hooker as being homesick and wanted to transfer early in his career, which I assume would be 2014 and maybe the offseason before 2015. It is hard to see how Hooker could have gone from mentally halfway out the door to beating out a potential 3 year starter in maybe only 6 months.

It's a combination of practice and game experience. Game speed is different than practice speed. Playing in front of 100,000 is different than practice also. That being said, coaches like running out fresh bodies on the defensive line. There is an advantage to having quality depth.

Because it's easier to complete passes nowadays because the defensive backs could bump you mote than 5 yards down the field. It is far easier to separate nowadays. The pass interference rule changed the way football is played in America. It's is the main reason passing records are shattered all the time at every level of football. The very reason football has turned into a passing game is because the risk is less nowadays due to the rule changes. The pass interference rule change in 1978 may be the biggest rule change in NFL history. It has more to do with the change in philosophy of offensive football than anything else. Its the reason coaches felt more comfortable at every level throwing the football.

Exactly BrutusB. And Young shot up in the rankings. On the SEC recruiting board one of the first comments was asking about the DE (Chase Young) who went up 42 spots. The rankings are better than ever at projecting NFL draft picks. Also the rankings really do want to get things right, it's kind of embarrassing for them when the NFL draft comes around and people look back and see a 1st round draft pick ranked a 2 star.

Career and season passing records have to be taken with a grain of salt. Freshman weren't always eligible. The first year freshman were eligible (1972) was the first year OSU played more than 10 games in a season. Pass interference is called differently. I could go on...

The players you just mentioned are Hall of Famers and single players. It's more about the starting 22 when considering if a team from 1970 could beat a team from 2017. Although I am sure Matthews could hold his own, and Hayes could burn some corners, I just thik its asking a lot to expect the average offensive linemen to overcome a 30-50 lb weight disadvantage for a whole game.

Seriously?! If you look at team rosters from Woody's day, it was nothing but Ohioans for the most part. At least 80%.

Hooker isn't going top 3 as a safety. Top 15 very likely, no one is taking a safety top 3. Especially with the defensive back depth in this draft class.

Comment 13 Jan 2017

It's that double edged sword Meyer talks about. You offer a local kid too early, and he peaks too early or you have good chances with elite kids from other states later in the process, you end up with a Clark/Sibley situation. You wait too long, the kids jump on other offers.

Bama without a doubt.

I am not one of those "In December" or in snow guys. Play the game in late August or September. True competitors wouldn't want or need to play a team in weather they aren't accustomed to. The Ohio State Buckeyes don't need any help or advantages. I would like to think OSU could beat Bama in 70 degree weather also, not just in the cold.

I think the lack of production from Marshall had more to do with play calling and scheme than talent. I think the H-back could be a valuable weapon with the right quarterback, or better passing game.

I have actually thought about this. I have probably listened/watched  Mike and Mike more than any radio or TV program in my lifetime, considering when, how often, and how long the show has been on. Might even get misty eyed for their last show.

My mornings wont be the same. Love those guys.
