Chat sports is a joke. No way this is true. Not saying JH won't eventually accept but chat sports is not going to be the outlet that breaks this news. If you go to mgo even they don't believe this.

Brewster, I was hoping you would weigh in on this. Completely agree with your statements although I never liked Cutler. I always thought and continue to think he is quite overrated. His job security has been unbelievable over the past 5 yrs considering what he has accomplished. Most NFL QB's would have been shown the bench yrs ago for the less than stellar play. His new contract was the most ridiculous move by any franchise in quite some time. As you stated it is getting out of control in Chicago and the mudslinging has begun by everyone and I'm not sure any of it can be salvaged. By seasons end, its going to be an "everyone must go" situation and start over. Its quite sad indeed but Cutler has never helped himself in any way on the field but who knows maybe a certain coach could get something out of that strong arm. I think we can all agree Jimmy Clausen isn't the answer!!

I was in the camp of "No" for the longest time but as this has begun to drag out Im changing my tune. The longer this goes the better shot of them landing Jimmy. I say bring it! It would be great theatre having him and Meyer on the sidelines. He will be there for 2-3 yrs realize he cant beat OSU, get tired of recruiting and go back to the NFL.

To our credit we aren't a paid expert.

He's a scalper. His name is Chubs. (wish I was joking about this)

Come on Buckeye4Life, video coordinators can develop QB's.

The problem with 6 spots are the top seeds get a bye. I know it sounds great in the NFL but in collage there is already a pretty substantial layoff. I think a 6 team playoffs actually favors the lower seeds. I know I would rather play ASAP than wait another week and be rusty when your opponent already had a game to work off the rust. 8 teams makes the most sense to me.

I was very critical of Herman post VT game and still stand by my thoughts on the playing calling for that game (albeit I never called for his head) Having said that, I feel like he has really hit his stride since that game. He understands what plays will make this offense run. I was worried when JT went down he would default back to the VT game plan for wisconsin. As soon as I saw Jones rollout and throw on the first play I knew he was in an aggressive state of mind. After that play calling performance with our 3rd string QBI certainly  appreciate his work. I have zero doubt he is deserving of this award with all the injuries we have suffered this year and will miss him when his HC job finally calls.

I got a feeling Urban and Herman are going to push tempo on Offense to a point we have never been too. You know Saban hates fast pace spread and we haven't shown true tempo since Kent St. I'm calling it now that we come out fast pace and try to shell shock Bama's Defense.

Comment 09 Dec 2014

I don't even care who we will play in the NC. Ive wanted one thing and one thing only- that's a crack at Alabama! When we beat Bama anything else is icing on the cake! Win or lose the NC game, if we beat Bama,  OSU will have re-established itself as a program to be very concerned about on a national level. This is a matchup Ive been waiting for since Meyer got here.

My hope is he may see the success Marshall is having in this type of offense and take a chance shifting around positions a bit. But with his talent let him play the position he wants. 

Comment 08 Dec 2014

I think he also described Jones pass as "having some hot sauce on it." Love listening to him call a game, especially when there are a lot of big plays going down.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Personally think Bosa played his best game of the season. (I know you can say that about many) But he has struggled this season in run support. there were many moments when he lost position because he was just constantly attacking the pass. He looked great out there against Wisconsin by staying in his lane, beating his one on one, and holding the edge in run support. Great to see. This defense has finally gotten a taste of the effort it takes for championship level defense to be played. I got a feeling they may get scary in the coming games!

Comment 08 Dec 2014

I think Kenny Thrill also won the Hiesman then too?

Comment 05 Dec 2014

Yeah, you wonder what Fickell would say of the defense if our offense wasn't putting up 35+ points a game the last two years.

Comment 04 Dec 2014

I get it, however, I hope Herman gives him some easy throws early to calm him down and gain confidence in his game. If you ask him to attack to hard, to quickly and a turnover happens it could be devastating. I would like to see quick throws, good reads early moving the chains. If we have great success there then let him open it up and take a shot.
