Beating Bama validated this team, it would not have been the same if we had won the national title without going through the king of the SEC.
The 2016 class is going to be embarassingly good. If you are a recruit from the Midwest or anywhere close to the Midwest, why wouldn't you want to come to Ohio State if given the chance. The only drawback I can see is that the dept chart is loaded, but if you're not willing to compete you probably aren't that good anyways.
85 yards through the heart of the South.
I hate saying this because Braxton Miller is a phenomenal athlete and has made so many great plays for Ohio State: he needs to switch positions from QB to either slot receiver or H-back type role. Miller is such a great athlete that it would actually hurt our team if he were standing on the sidelines holding a clipboard, he needs to be on the field somehow or someway. It is obvious that he does not project to the NFL as a QB, time to hone your skills as a RB/WR type of hybrid.
The best part about this clip is that he wanted a foul called.
Finally he speaks and we can all move on with our lives, and by "all" I mean all the adults who have been harassing an 18 year old kid via social media. Do I think Mike has handled this situation admirably and made the best choices regarding social media, absolutely not. Wearing that shirt while working out was just asking for trouble and he knew exactly what he was doing. However, I'm just glad he chose to remain a Buckeye and in the coming years he will learn he made the right decision. GO BUCKS!
The Hurry Up is my daily soothing night cap, like a nice warm glass of milk. Thanks Birm!
Yeah, put him on the shelf with Sugar Shane-O who was a 5* pro style recruit.
I actually live up here in the Detroit area, and you should see the non-sense that get tossed around on FB and Twitter. scUM fans get all excited when a kid decides to take a phone call from Harboner, stupidity!
Finally a legit TE commit, Urban is going to have some fun with this weapon!
Ohio State has always been a nationally recognized brand and Urban Meyer has always been one of the best college football coaches of all time. With that being said, the amount of talent interested in and currently heading to Columbus is absolutely sick. And now fresh off of a national title, this is going to get pretty ridiculous. Even I'm still amazed and in awe.
Promoting Warriner and keeping him on staff is HUGE...he has probably produced the greatest results on the offensive line since the John Cooper era. I don't know much about Tim Beck, but it's probably difficult to be successful working for such a dumbass like Pelini. In Urban I trust.
Monday night was the first time ever that I wasn't crazy excited when the commitments poured in, anybody else feel that way too? There must have been something else going on that was way more important. Thanks for the updates Birm, as always. What are the chances we keep any of the three commitments from Monday on board?
Zeke, thank you for deciding to play for a coach that has no idea how to produce a 1,000 yard running back. That same coach also does not know how to develop a power running game. GO BUCKS!!!
What a dumbass, couldn't you hold off on the herb until after the playoffs?
Darron Lee is my man crush too, I love seeing a three star kid develop into such a great player through hard work and determination. This kid is a leader on defense and I value the coaching staff's recruiting evaluations so much more than the recruiting websites designated "star" rankings.
As a Buckeye up here in the Detroit area, all I hear scUM fans talking about is Weber possibly flipping back to Michigan. It's pretty pathetic, right now they're all obsessed with this because they know this is their only current chance to possibly defeat UFM at something. It feels great to walk around and say I look forward to watching the national title game while they follow the Harbaugh assistant coaching search.
11 straight wins, undisputed conference champion, second and third string quarterback, did NOT schedule an FCS opponent, what more can you say? The Big 12 is a mess and needs to have a conference championship game, OSU is clearly a top 4 team and should be in the playoff.
Funny what I just found on CBS Sports:
The full College Football Playoff Rankings for Dec. 2:
1. Alabama (11-1)
2. Oregon (11-1)
3. TCU (10-1)
4. Florida State (11-1)
5. Ohio State (11-1)
Win and we're in! I still don't think there is any way the committee can keep out a one loss B1G champion team. OSU is a strong national brand that travels very well, good for ticket sales and TV ratings. Sorry Big 12, time to add a championship game.
Torrance Gibson....strange cat.
Oh yeah...and Michigan still sucks!
If this game would have happened within the past few years, I would not have been that impressed. But this is exactly what THIS team needed following such a bad game last week. We have so many young guys who have not seen much game time, and this type of victory is great for confidence and morale. The more live reps for all the young guys, especially JT, the better. This season is going to be one of those seasons where the team is much improved each week and the finished product at the end of the year will be so much different than the team that came out of the tunnel in Maryland the opening week. IF Braxton does decide to come back next year, this team will be seasoned and ready to really make a run next year. And if Barrett becomes a good to great QB, that would be a great problem to have heading into next season.
Devin Smith is a great big play kinda guy, consistency is key though. There were too many games last year where he'd disappear and Philly Brown would be the only receiver to get open. I wanna see more versatility this year outta Smith, but I do love the straight line speed he has.
Did Mark May call the double digit upset, what a douche! Vonn Bell is finally starting and Darron Lee is going to be one of those diamond in the rough kind of kids. Love it!
