Never did like him. Funny how he got the heck out of Dodge soon after. He was "bone weary". Lots of shady stuff happened on his watch people seem to forget

I agree. Last years lb class was better recruiting wise. And as others have mentioned D'Andrea was the 5 star stud of that class and Schlegel was a transfer anyways.
Comment 20 Oct 2014
I was going to link this too. I highly doubt Manning being an Ole Miss alum had much if anything to do with his decision. Probably didn't want the headache, plus the surgeries.
Comment 19 Oct 2014
Lee redshirted, Shazier didn't. I personally think Shazier as a true sophomore projected better than Lee does at this point, not to say I don't think Lee has the potential to play at the next level.

I am curious myself who performed the first surgery.

This is a fun topic. The more I look at the point system, Heisman are rare, even though its with 8 points that may not mean as much as you think. The .25 per varsity letter probably means more than we might think considering 80 years of players wearing numbers. Also retired numbers obviously aren't worn again. I don't have a guess yet, the key is the the number is probably worn by a lot of OSU captains/ All Big Ten/ team mvp types.

LOL all I can find was Marcus Ray upending David Boston on the national cover of Sports Illustrated after the 1997 games, the year Woodson won the Heisman and UM won the national championship. I was a student a OSU from 94-99, and yes Boston taunted Ray in 98, but let's be honest Columbus native Ray probably had more room to talk than Boston. I lost a lot of respect for Boston, he was likely roiding before he left OSU. Probably after the 97 game, Boston gained noticeable size from 97-98

I disagree. I like what I see from Burrows. Haven't seen enough of Smith

You have to be a member of the Buckeye Club, President's Club or Varsity O to purchase season tickets, and I believe the number posted of $1500 is correct. There are people grandfathered in, long time season ticket holders. If you are a member of the alumni association you enter a ticket raffle for one game.

LOL I agree 100%. I love baseball but I can't stand Jeter. Very good ball player but always gets too much attention.

I do not think there is much difference in steroids use in the north and in the South to be honest. I understood his point, just don't think steroid use had any impact on the stats listed. As competitive as football is nationally I just don't see it.

The best team of all time not to win a title may be the 1961 Ohio State Buckeyes. One of only two teams to enter the NCAA Final undefeated and not win the championship, the other being Larry Bird's 1979 Indiana State team. The 1961 Ohio State team was looking to repeat as NCAA champs similar to UNLV, and made it to the championship game the next year also. They were led by two Hall of Famers in Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek. They definitely should be an any discussion of the best team not to win a title.

OSU couldn't beat Va Tech at home, and had trouble with Navy's rushing attack. I don't think OSU beats Oregon on a neutral field at this point.

I disagree. Athletes are athletes generally because they have better hand eye coordination, speed and strength, and motor skills thanks the average human. They get paid well because their gifts are rare. It is a job in high demand. None of that makes them a role model any more than a singer or actor. Has was stated above be, an athlete can be a role model do to they way they live their lives, that is great, but their are teachers, police officers, doctors, volunteers, coaches, parents etc that make better role models.

Our two first round draft picks last year were from Florida and Georgia. Bosa is from Florida, it didn't take him long as a true freshman in didn't enroll early to handle the elements. The weather thing is so overblown. I can't think of too many players who failed in college or the NFL because of not being able to adjust to weather. Maybe if you have bad circulation in your extremities.

They didn't draft him, and it isn't Florida, but Brett Favre did ok for then and he played prep and college ball in Mississippi. Bart Starr won 5 titles for them and he played college ball at Bama. The Bears had a tough running back named Walter Payton who was from Mississippi. Also you could make the argument as an 18 year old that as a NFL draftee you have no choice where you end up, so you may as well have fun and play somewhere warm while you do have control.
